Forces of Destiny's Porgs come with Chewbacca at SDCC 2018

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, July 6, 2018

3609 Forces of Destiny had a lot going for it - much of which may never see the light of day.  New episodes keep streaming, but new toys are far and few between.  The Porgs with Chewbacca got far enough along that you can snag yours at Comic-Con in a couple of weeks.  Cnet has the scoop - Chewie can be bought today, but the whole set is $50 at the show.  Read more here.

Toys R Us Canada has Exclusive Stormtrooper, No Known US Release

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, June 11, 2018

3593 Toys R Us will survive in Canada, and they have this exclusive Stormtrooper.  It's a lot like our other troopers with a stand and some flame accessories, and it's CAN$49.99.    A standard figure is CAN$29.99, so it's $20 extra for two painted flame pieces, a new blaster, a couple of black paint splotches, and a grey display base.   We'll post more about when or if this becomes available elsewhere.

Toy Fair Gallery - Hasbro Star Wars The Vintage Collection 3 3/4-Inch Action Figures

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, February 17, 2018

3536 Getting through hundreds of images is time-consuming, so let's cheat.  It's time for The Vintage Collection to return like so many seven-year locusts. Here are images from Hasbro's showroom, mixed in with lightly edited tweets from our livetweet Saturday afternoon.  You'll see exclusives, main line items, and even a preview of something for 2019.   Sound good?  Awesome.

Walgreens Exclusive Spirit of Obi-Wan Already on Sale?

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, November 15, 2017

3463 The new Star Wars  Obi-Wan Kenobi (Force Spirit) hit in September, and our pal Phil is already finding them for $14.99!  I haven't even seen these in all stores in my area yet, but they are making the rounds.   In most major cities you can throw a rock and hit a Walgreens, or two.  

If you're lucky you might also find some basic figures from the newer waves next to this Force Spirit.   Happy hunting!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,389: R5-S9 (Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, July 24, 2017

Take a look at R5-S9 (Droid Factory), it's blue! The colors don't match the show perfectly, but it's also not an animated figure.  You can find this The Clone Wars-inspired robot at Disney theme parks in a 4-pack, and of course we're going to look at them all.  Read on!

SDCC - Reveals Continue with The Last Jedi Star Wars Figures

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 18, 2017

If you recall last year, Hasbro didn't announce its Jyn Erso exclusive until San Diego Comic-Con-goers were already on the ground.  This year, we may (because it wasn't officially announced yet) be seeing this Star Wars: The Black Series Jedi Master Luke Skywalker and Jedi In Training Rey 2-pack as seen on the Jedi Insider today.   It hasn't been officially announced at all, but it does look a lot like official Hasbro photography.  More as we have it!

GameStop Star Wars Battlefront II Inferno Squadron Pilot

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, April 15, 2017

If you're enjoying stomping the pavement to find R5-D4 at GameStops this weekend, good news - you can do it again in November!  For a couple of bucks north of $20, the Imperial TIE Fighter Pilot variatnt Inferno Squadron Pilot should be up for grabs in November.  It's like the TIE Fighter Pilot you have but with more red.

Hasbro Confirms 6-Inch Clone Trooper Commander Gree as Toys R Us Exclusive

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, April 13, 2017

The info just keeps rolling in!  Hasbro's PR department informed us that Commander Gree is coming to Toys R Us as an exclusive. When? We don't know, but the 6-inch The Black Series figure looks pretty sharp.

More information as we have it - and it's nice to see the prequels getting some love out there.

Rogue One Blu-Ray, Black Series AT-ACT Driver In Stores Now

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 4, 2017

Today's the day!  Without too much fuss, Target's exclusive AT-ACT Driver has joined the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story DVD and Blu-Ray at retail today.   It's worth noting Target has an exclusive deluxe Blu-Ray set with bonus content as well, and the price may vary. The tag said $29.99 but it rang up $27.99.  Go figure.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,327: Sergeant Jyn Erso (The Black Series 3 3/4-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, January 4, 2017

This Sergeant Jyn Erso is pretty cool - Walmart's 3 3/4-inch super-articulated figure actually has a slightly different costume than the non-exclusive version.  There's a missing jacket under her vest - this is one of the many costume changes in Rogue One.   If you're on the fence about this figure, don't be - she's got a lot of articulation, a sniper rifle, and a unique costume - read on!

Surprise Walmart Black Friday Exclusive - ROTJ Titan Hero Series Speederbike, $10

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, November 25, 2016

3208 Walmart stores are often a frustrating and exciting source of exclusives and bundles in November.  This year, the "we were told this was canceled" Rogue One Star Wars Titan Hero Series vehicle assortment arrived at Walmart in aisle dumps along with Poe/Speederbike, Stormtrooper/Assault Walker, and some Marvel Mask/Figure 2-packs.  At $10 a whack they're spectacular values for kids and something collectors in 20 years - when Titan Hero Series becomes the Mego of this generation of children - cost more than a trip to the movies for your family.  But hey, you can go get these now if you're lucky. 

The lines aren't necessarily terrible in all locations, and if you're one of the many toy vampires out there the after hours shopping trip will do you more good than refreshing your social media feeds and postponing sleep another hour or three.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,310: R2-H16 (Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, November 21, 2016

Thanks to my pal Shannon once more, the droid R2-H16 is here in the office!  He's at Disneyland and other Disney parks now for pennies under $13.  He also has an all-new hat.  You won't want to miss this festive fellow, as he'll likely disappear from the parks before the new year.  Get yours, read on!

Toys R Us Hasbro Star Wars Rogue One Cassian Andor and Stormtrooper Exclusive Figures Hitting

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, November 13, 2016

3207 It's here too!  For $14.99 - and apparently not qualifying for the 20% off sale right now - the Star Wars Rogue One Cassian Andor and Stormtrooper Exclusive Figure Two-Pack is in stores now. As always, I found it in Phoenix, AZ and it was the last one at the store I visited.  Good hunting!

The set includes Cassian Andor from the U-Wing fighter (with slightly better paint), a redeco of the single-carded Stormtrooper, Sabine's zipline, and more.  That's a decent amount of plastic for $15.

Kohl's Rogue One Hasbro Action Figure Set: In Stock, Deal Stacking

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, November 11, 2016

Kohl's pricing is tricky - they're usually more expensive than other stores, but run promotions regularly that change the actual cost of the item.  This year, they've got a swell Star Wars Rogue One Battle 4-Pack Figurine Set with a normal going rate of $49.99.   Today, the base price was $34.99 when I placed my order not 10 minutes ago, and as of right now it's $39.99.  It may well move again.   I used the codes USA10 and VETERAN to get it down to under $25 with free in-store pick-up and sales tax - but again, that pricing seems to change, so be careful when checking out and check the coupon code sites.  But why is this set different enough to make you mad?

Target Star Wars The Black Series Rogue One Hasbro Exclusives In Stores Now

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 1, 2016
