Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,247: R2-H15 (Disney Park Exclusive)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, November 27, 2015

If you missed it, the R2-H15 is new!  It just came out and is showing up at Disney's theme park in Anaheim for about $13.  (Thanks for getting me this one, Matt!)   Is it worth it?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,246: Imperial Shock Trooper (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 26, 2015

I'm pretty stoked whenever we get a Stormtrooper with marks of some sort, so last week's Walmart-only Imperial Shock Trooper was a treat.   The mold is good, and the Shocktrooper markings from the Battlefront game make it even cooler.  Want to know more?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,245: Darth Vader (Emperor's Wrath, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, November 25, 2015

Fresh from the drug store chain, Darth Vader (Emperor's Wrath) is out and about with improved armor deco, a retooled arm, and a new head.   It's a decent figure - but it's still basically the same Vader from last year with a few modifications.   Want to see more about this 6-inch figure?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,239: Poe Dameron (Jacket 6-Inch Black Series, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 17, 2015

Check out Target's 6-inch Poe Dameron - probably in stores now unless it sold out.   I got mine online for $10 off, which is where you want to be - it's a good figure, but the likeness on Oscar Isaac toys as of yet could use some work.  (He's a tough face to capture.)   Should you get this one?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,238: First Order Snowtrooper Officer (6-Inch Black Series, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, November 16, 2015

I haven't seen the First Order Snowtrooper Officer in stores since I got mine last month, but hey - it's new!  This exclusive takes a plain Snowtrooper (which isn't out yet) and adds a pauldron, thus making it a better figure than the regular release is likely to be.  If you can get it, it's pretty slick - so good hunting.  Read on!

K-Mart Kylo Shipping

By Mike — Friday, October 30, 2015

Yakface is reporting that the K-Mart exclusive Black Series Kylo Ren (Starkiller Base) is now shipping, so keep an eye on your inbox. This version of The Force Awakens villain (we assume) comes with two lightsaber accessories and a display base and retails for $19.99.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,227: Stormtrooper Officer (Desert, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, October 30, 2015

An Entertainment Earth exclusive, the desert flavor of the Stormtrooper Officer comes with a red pauldron and a totally different paint job on his Assault Walker.   It's a little whiter than the jungle trooper, and looks like it should fit right in on a Jakku shelf. It's also shipping right now.  Read on!

Sighted - Star Wars TRU Exclusive 6-Inch Snowtrooper Officer

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, October 9, 2015

2965 For $19.99, Toys R Us is now receiving cases of the First Order Snowtrooper Officer.  I saw several at a Phoenix area Toys R Us, so it's possible if you missed the online pre-order you might just stumble on them over the next week or two.  Update: note this one has a TRU silver sticker - some don't.  Good hunting!

It seems that the figure is very similar to the basic version other than the pauldron, but we'll know for sure once it starts to ship in the next month or three.

Are you finding anything interesting?  Let us know!  Leave a comment or send us an email - we're hearing a lot of buzz, and we love getting confirmations.

Found: Toys R Us Star Wars Sandy First Order Special Forces TIE Fighter Exclusive

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 24, 2015


It's here! Very few new exclusives have actually hit, but Toys R Us' exclusive First Order Special Forces TIE Fighter is out now.  You get a little more paint for $42.99, a $3 markup over the regular version at $39.99.

The pilot is very similar to the regular version, but with added red stripes on his helmet.  If you've seen the 181st Pilots or some of the specially marked ones from the original trilogy, you know what to expect.   The TIE itself has some light brown dusting, but not any scorch marks on the wings.  Just dust.   The good news is that both the figure and vehicle are both visually quite interesting.  The bad news is that it lowers the bar for vehicle deco variants - snow on the boots were a thing we've seen on figures for a few years, but sand damaged vehicles is, of course, a completely new thing.

Disneyland Adds New $30 Star Wars Droid Factory Box Set, Debuts R0 Droid

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, September 4, 2015

Hasbro or not Hasbro?  We're still not 100% sure, but we do know that a new Droid Factory Boxed Set has popped up at theme parks and on eBay.  Reader Michael passed along the details - $29.95 gets you four droids (a real bargain!) including the first-ever R0-4LO and the first action figure of R5-X3 - this was previously sold as a Tomy RC droid and was slated for the axed Legacy Collection.

Also included are R2-Q2 with a different paint job - seriously, new panels and all - plus the first new R4-I9 since 2002.  The box boasts they're from the new movie, but I'm curious to see if this is true.

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.

Walmart Gets More Star Wars Waves of 3 3/4-Inch The Black Series

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 3, 2015

There's always hope!  Walmart has 3 figures up for grabs now and more are coming.  Tonight you can order Luke Skywalker (dirty boot redeco recolor of 2012 Vintage Blu-Ray Jedi Luke), Darth Vader (repack, possible redeco of the 500th Vader mold), and Chewbacca (possible redeco of 2004 Vintage Chewbacca.)  I'm in the middle of a series of large crises so I'll update this with facts (or your comments) as time permits.   As you wait, click below to see the figures at Walmart.com.

Upcoming releases include the unreleased Ceremonial Leia, Kylo Ren, and a First Order Stormtrooper.
