Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,242: Clone Trooper Commander (Phase I, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, November 20, 2015

Behold, the Clone Trooper Commander!  This 6-inch figure is part of Amazon's (at least temporarily) sold-out boxed set tracing the evolution of the troopers over 6 of the 7 movies.   This one is, like the others, exclusive to the set - you won't find this deco elsewhere in this size.   Get one if you can, and read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,241: Clone Trooper (Phase II, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 19, 2015

Check out the 6-inch Clone Trooper (Phase II), complete with the revised bucket we've all been dying for - and some other changes.   A few deco points were altered from the previous releases, so this one is actually distinctive beyond just the helmet.  (But not by much.)  Should you snag this item next time Amazon restocks it for a decent price?  Read on!

Amazon - New Stormtrooper Exclusive 6-Inch and 3 3/4-Inch Sets

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 3, 2015

Amazon listed two (so far) new exclusive sets on 9/3.   They are:

Star Wars The Force Awakens 3.75-Inch Figure Troop Builder 6-Pack - actually has 7 figures. Captain Phasma is joined by uniquely armored Stormtroopers and Snowtroopers.  The fact that it is not actually a six pack once again robs me of Black Flag jokes.

Star Wars The Black Series 6-Inch Stormtrooper 4-Pack - This is the rumored "evolution" set. Each figure is unique - Stormtrooper has dirty deco, Episode 7 Stormtrooper has a unique pauldron, the Episode III Clone Trooper debuts in this set, and the AOTC yellow Clone Captain is new.

Amazon Price Drop - Cheap Black Series

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, December 17, 2014

Over on Amazon this time of year, prices are in flux changing daily or even every few hours.  In particular, Star Wars: The Black Series Deluxe Figures seem to be getting cheaper.  I noticed the Speeder Bike and Jabba the Hutt were each around $22, and may be different by the time you see this.


That makes each item about half price, which ain't bad.

Amazon Black Friday Deals Now - Cheap Tackle Boxes, Star Wars Stuffs

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, November 22, 2014

Many of you have asked me "What tackle boxes do you use to store your 3 3/4-inch Star Wars figures?" There are two kinds, but one of them is actually on sale now on Amazon.  A Plano 2-3700 Prolatch Stowaway 4-pack (you'll want more) should store about 48 standard-sized figures, and it's $17.99 with free Prime shipping, click here to get it.

Also, Amazon has a small suite of Star Wars deals, but nothing crazy - some half-price figures, a few older games, and so forth.  If there are deals being held back for the real Black Friday, we don't know them yet, but you can click here to see what they're calling their Black Friday specials right now.

Star Wars Blu-Ray Complete Saga $59.99 at Amazon

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, January 2, 2014

Amazon has the 9-disc, 6-movie Star Wars: The Complete Saga (Episodes I-VI) Blu-Ray set for $59.99, which is about the lowest that I've seen it.  The main reason for picking it up are the deleted scenes - but don't throw out your DVDs, because the DVD special features and deleted scenes differ from here and the DVDs you bought a few years ago.

I assume you've bought it by now.

Deal: Amazon has Vintage Star Wars Droid 3-Pack for $5.98

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, December 25, 2013

Because there's always a chance to drop a price, Amazon marked down the formerly Target exclusive Star Wars Action Figure Special Droid Set to under six bucks with free Prime shipping.  That ain't bad - there are plenty of other items marked down too including $3 Black Series figures and other stuff, so while you wait for the ham or turkey or Denny's to be ready you might want to poke around to see what other deals you can find.

I just found Looper (Blu-Ray, good movie) and the Total Recall remake (haven't seen it) are $4.99 each, also with free Prime shipping.
