Q&A: Hunting, Bugging Employees, and More Star Wars 3 3/4-Inch Angst

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, April 3, 2016

This week in Q&A - the sound of 3 3/4-inch falling apart. This is a common thread - and it (apparently) can't be reiterated enough how market conditions and the changing audience has diverted where Hasbro puts its resources in to Star Wars and how it competes against itself for your dollars. Also toy hunting - do you bug the employees? Well, one guy scored doing just that. Me, I just shrug and go to the next place after getting death-stares from big box stores when they ask me if I need any help, but I digress.

Q&A: Indy, Indy, and Star Wars

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, March 27, 2016

This week in Q&A - Indiana Jones. Which is a separate license from Star Wars. Also more Indiana Jones. Not to be outdone, we're also going to look at the vehicle count - are we getting a fair amount of vehicles for the new flick or are we being shorted? I guess it all depends on your point of view.

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, March 20, 2016

This week in Q&A - #WheresLuke? That was the premise of the new movie, and also the premise of Hasbro's current action figure line. And Kylo Ren's helmet - can you swap it between the 3 3/4-inch Jungle figures and the Walmart Black Series figure? The answer may not surprise you. Also more missed figures - maybe. If we don't know we missed it, did we miss it?
