Q&A: The Menace Awakens, Star Wars Digital, and Action Figure Variants

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, March 29, 2015

This week in Q&A: How is The Force Awakens comparing to The Phantom Menace nine months out? Let's also talk digital releases and variations, just like the old days. Did you know that in the 1990s people bought multiple figures based on subtle changes of the belt, or a comma on the packaging, or a warning sticker? It's true!

Q&A: Star Wars Vehicle Perfections, International Distribution, and TV Showdown

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, March 15, 2015

Let's Q&A! We talk Canada - and are dismissive, as we are Americans. And The Clone Wars - while dwindling, it ain't dead. Also vehicle greatest hits - is this a good time to buy if you want a definitive take on anything?

Q&A: Star Wars Vehicles, Rebels, Titanium Figures, and Oh So Much More

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, February 22, 2015

After a small error last week, we're back with Jumbo Sized Q&A! (Formerly known as "regular size Q&A.") Toy Fair didn't reveal all that much to the public, but at least we can talk about increasing costs and shortcuts to keep figures cheap. And Titanium figures - did you miss any? Maybe, but a lot never made it out. And Rebels - how much longer can it last? All this and more in the column I meant to post last week and wrote in January (plus 2 bonus questions), after the break.

Q&A: Star Wars Vehicle Bundles, New Figures, and Food Toys of the Future

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, February 8, 2015

Toy Fair is this weekend, but before we get some facts let's do some Q&A anyway! Let's talk new movie figures - we're not going to see any this week most likely, but should we expect sneak peek mail-ins or waves? And how about that new Imperial Troop Transport - should we wait for a version with a pack-in figure? And fast food - are McHappy toys a thing of the past now that Disney is involved? Our rampant speculation says maybe not!

Q&A: Star Wars Vehicles, Comics, and Vintage Action Figures

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, February 1, 2015

This week in Q&A: Let's talk Marvel comics! There are new ones. And more new big vehicles - should we be hopeful of more TV toys before the new movie? And The Vintage Collection - how realistic are more reissues of previously released figures on previously released packaging? Well... I wouldn't get my hopes up if I were you.

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, January 25, 2015

It's Q&A time! Should we expect more female action figures now? Maybe, but I'm not holding my breath. What's up with Hera - is she getting more toys? And how about spin-off movies - should we be excited?

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, January 11, 2015

Let's talk price increases in Q&A! They're happening, thanks to the rise of the middle class and probably also iambic pentameter. Expanded Universe figures in 6-inch scale - will you get that XL Starkiller you've always wanted? And how are the Rebels toys doing? Good question.

Welcome to 2015, Q&A readers! We're in the future. There are no hovering cars, but there will be The Force Awakens action figures - that's pretty good, right? Also, thinking of a good way to represent your collection can be tough, so let's all cheat.
