The Black Series

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,826: Jawa (Kenner, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, June 14, 2021

Like an old Kenner figure, but bigger! Jawa (Kenner, The Black Series 6-Inch). It's still in stock on Amazon for $20, and I would argue it's very much worth it. Sure, it lacks one of the blasters from the previous release, but those cloth robes are super cool. Read on!

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, June 10, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Jaxxon (The Black Series 6-Inch). It's one of two characters I never actually expected to see as an action figure - and here it is. It's out right now. But you have to order it online if you want one. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,806: Cad Bane (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 27, 2021

Today in Figure of the Day, it's a good one: Cad Bane (The Black Series 6-Inch). This one was available by himself or in a set with Todo 360, end either one is really excellent if you can find them. Cad Bane's hat comes off, he has two blasters, and each and every joint seems to be perfectly hidden in his costume. This is one of the best figures from last year, so get one when you see one. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,803: Boba Fett (Deluxe ROTJ, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 20, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Boba Fett (Deluxe ROTJ, The Black Series 6-Inch). This one ships in a case by himself - that's good! But he's $30 - that's bad. But he comes with a bonus sawed-off blaster - that's good! But his capture claw gauntlet is just some weird clip-on bracelet - that's bad. Can we read on now?

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,802: Shoretrooper (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, April 19, 2021

It's old, but new, but pretty much the same as the old one: Shoretrooper (The Black Series 6-Inch). It's a rerelease! The 2021 Archive figure looks a lot like the 2016 Walmart-exclusive version, but the damage deco is a little different. If you have the first release, you probably don't need this one unless you're army-building and want some subtle variety in your troops. 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!

Adam's Star Wars Newsletter Returns... with Hasbro Pulse Fan Fest Coverage and More

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, April 9, 2021

As Captain Beefheart once said to hecklers, "I'm going to do what I want to do!"

I don't much like coding or social media or anything like that - but I love writing about toys.  Back in the 1990s I ran a Star Wars email newsletter called ASWN, Adam's Star Wars Newsletter, as a dial-up text email blasted out to people.  I may set up a new email server, but I brought it back as a 1995-chic web page with all the new info from today's Hasbro Pulse announcements, and some updates on upcoming comics, streaming shows, and conventions that you may have missed.

Click here to return to 1995 with a brand new issue of Adam's Star Wars newsletter.  It's all text.  That's how I want to do it.   If you don't like it, there are lots of other web pages not written by cranky middle-aged fans who started writing about toys as cranky teenage fans.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,795: Din Djarin (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, April 1, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Din Djarin (The Black Series 6-Inch). He's got a removable helmet with a nose bump, a little green sidekick, some slabs of metal, and a floating baby stroller - plus some other stuff. It's not cheap, but you get a lot in the box if you can find one. Read on.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,788: Crosshair (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 16, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Crosshair (The Black Series 6-Inch). This Clone looks a bit like Tem Morrison and a bit like Clint Eastwood - but he's also missing the trademark crosshair on his helmet. There's a lot of sculpted detail and specialized armor elements, so Clone fans should get a huge kick out of this. The character appeared on The Clone Wars last season and will be starring in The Bad Batch in May. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,787: Hunter (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, March 15, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Hunter (The Black Series 6-Inch). ShHshares tooling with Crosshair. But what may interest you is that he looks suspiciously like a member of Delta Squad from the Republic Commando video games - are we looking at a secret pretool? Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,786: Asajj Ventress (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 11, 2021

Today in Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day: Asajj Ventress (The Black Series 6-Inch). She shares tooling with Dark Side Vision Rey, but you wouldn't know it at first glance. This is one of the very best figures in this scale. This version of Dooku's assassin is largely based on the first couple of seasons of the 2008 The Clone Wars show - and read on!
