By Adam Pawlus — Monday, June 21, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Greedo (Kenner, The Black Series 6-Inch). The Amazon exclusive seems to be sold through, but it's awesome if you're a fan of the old Kenner guys. A new one on a not-quite-right POTF2-style cardback is up on Hasbro Pulse right now, but in movie colors. Which is better? Amazon's, obviously. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,800: Ben (Obi-Wan) Kenobi (Kenner, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 13, 2021

A blast from the past from right now: Ben (Obi-Wan) Kenobi (Kenner, The Black Series 6-Inch). This one takes an existing mold, and paints it in 1978 colors. The cloth cape is gone, replaced by a vinyl cape - which works surprisingly well. This is absolutely more of an art piece or a display piece - and it's seemingly sold out for a while. Read on!

Star Wars: Celebrate the Saga Amazon Exclusives

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, August 23, 2020

Not to be outdone are two packs for Amazon.  These are great for your average consumer, but the long-term collector already has most of these.  These are what you'll be buying for Christmas presents to the kids you're going to force Star Wars upon this holiday season.  Best Buy got the villains, and Amazon got the heroes.  As far as I can tell, none of these figures are particularly new other than R2-D2 looks like a different combo platter of parts for you completists.

The figures are largely collected from The Force Awakens, Saga Legends, The Last Jedi.

You can click here to order them from Amazon.com, and yes we do get a few pennies through that affiliate link so please do click it.
