By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, September 6, 2020

This week in Q&A - New finds! It's reset season! Also some hard to answer questions - not everybody knows everything. And launch days - look, I'm not a fan, and neither are retailers these days.

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, August 9, 2020

This week in Q&A - The new Falcon! I don't have one, but I did read the press release. Are retail toy experiences over? If you're a collector, it seems that way - at least for now. And more reissues - I'd expect more.

Q&A: Star Wars Exclusive Drops, Collector Engagement, and Warped Senses of Cardbacks

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, August 2, 2020

This week in Q&A - Happy 25 years of toy journalism-ish, me! Oh wait, that's not a question. But collector engagement brings up some issues! And so does warped cards and weird pre-orders in the middle of the night. That seems about where we are now.

Q&A: Star Wars Crowdfunding, Third Party Bootlegs, and Sisters

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, July 26, 2020

This week in Q&A - Crowdfunding! It's still popular. Third party stuff! Bootlegs, fan-made, knockoffs, it's a complicated world and Hasbro brought the hammer down on one manufacturer this week. And Tonnika sisters, because that's a thing we talk about and who doesn't love disappointment? It's something to read at home when you're not working or watching Floor Is Lava.

Q&A: Star Wars Vintage, 3 3/4-Inch Figures, HasLab Again

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, July 19, 2020

This week in Q&A - 3 3/4-inch figures! Because of course. And skipped waves aren't skipped yet. Also HasLab, because, well, why not. That Sentinel sure got funded fast, didn't it?

Q&A: Star Wars Vehicles and More HasLab Fun

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, July 12, 2020

This week in Q&A - It's all about Hasbro's vehicles! Storage! I believe in warning labels. Also this old AT-AT and that new big AT-AT that doesn't actually exist. And did you see the new HasLab item? (It's not Star Wars and it got funded in about a day.)

Q&A: Star Wars Retro Retro Retro Imperfect

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, July 5, 2020

This week in Q&A - The Retro Collection! This was unintentional, but all 3 questions have to do with things like Stickers and online order picking as well as pricing from this year's The Empire Strikes Back retro-style action figures at Walmart, which you probably never actually saw in stores or somehow found on clearance.

Q&A: Vintage Production Number, Star Wars Vehicles, and "Repacks"

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, June 28, 2020

This week in Q&A - Repacks! It's something of a misnomer - they're new production. Production numbers! How many 1980s Power of the Force figures were there? We, uh, don't know.

Q&A: Star Wars Mail-In Figures, Army Builders, and Retro Toys

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, June 21, 2020

This week in Q&A - Army builders! Well, maybe. And Mail-in figures - that might be over. Retro figures - we all want more, competition between figure sizes and formats aside.

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, June 14, 2020

This week in Q&A - box variations! Count Dooku - which is the best 3 3/4-inch figure, and would you believe it hasn't been improved upon in 15 years? And HasLab sure whatever.

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, June 7, 2020
