Q&A: TV, Clone Wars, Multiple Purchases, and Other Stuff

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, May 6, 2012

It's time for Q&A! Let's talk TV - is it possible something is too "adult" for toys? Is it time to stop buying three of each action figure? Yes. And And let's talk realistic Clone Wars figures too, just because. Read on for more exciting fun in this week's Q&A!

Q&A: Yellow Figures, Burned Droids, Missing Vehicles, Tooling, More

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, April 29, 2012

So yeah, Star Tours Build-A-Droid. Let's talk about that. Where is that Naboo Starfighter? Good question. Has it really been 10 years since Attack of the Clones figures came out? Geez, time flies! And how does Hasbro determine when to make a new mold? I thought I knew, but it's getting pretty strange, particularly in Hasbro's other toy brands. All this and how I ruined one of my favorite figures on Sunday when you read on!

Q&A: TV Shows, Tub-Based Darth Vaders, Mother Talzin, and Battle Game Cards

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, April 22, 2012

Oh, to get a Mother Talzin. Is it likely? I don't know about that. Know a good Battle Game Card resource? What's the deal with R2-A6 vs. R2-N3? Also, the mailbag is empty so fire off any new questions you got!

Q&A: Toy vs. Not, Wedge Reissue, Shortpacked Figures, Vintage Fun, and More

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, April 15, 2012

We can talk about more big vehicles because that always makes us happy. And why is Hasbro packing hot figures at one per box? Because they also pack not-hot ones at one per box. Let's talk about a new 6-inch line some more. Because apparently, we all love to do that. All this and really short reviews of the latest Vintage and Clone Wars figures, in this week's Q&A!

Q&A: Think Big: Big Vehicles, Big Figures, Big Television, and Other Big Ideas

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, April 8, 2012

So let's talk about vehicles, and get a little less optimistic for 2012 in that department. Why isn't Hasbro better exploiting TV series based on its core properties for new toys? A fine question. And why hasn't Hasbro given us a Marvel Legends-ish line yet? Would someone please tell me, because I'd like to know in this week's Q&A!

Q&A Zabrak Horns, Battle Droid Figures, Pricing, Licensing, and Grass Greenerisms

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, March 18, 2012

Which Battle Droids are best? Why, the cheaper ones of course! Would action figure collectors follow Star Wars to a non-Hasbro toymaker?

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, March 11, 2012
