Target Gets Exclusive The Force Awakens 12-Inch Droid Action Figures

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 31, 2016

3077 In "news that can scare youse" news, Target stores have a $29.99 3-pack of 12-inch (1:6 scale) droid action figures from Star Wars: The Force Awakens.  Given no prior publicity or announcement, these sets include R0-4L0, C-3PO, and BB-8 - not a bad deal.  However, don't limit your search to the toy department - I found all of these sets and other toys in the DVD/movie/Blu-Ray section on an endcap.  Happy hunting!

Kmart Star Wars Kylo Ren Exclusive - In Stock Now! Maybe!

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 8, 2015

Here it is - again!  The 6-inch Kmart exclusive Kylo Ren (Starkiller Base) is in stock as of my writing this - you can get it picked up at stores for free, or get it shipped.  It's $5 more than the regular version, but sports unique deco on the feet, a base, different hands, and a different lightsaber.  I just ordered mine - if you want one, click here to check availability.

Update: Don't use Paypal on the Kmart.com web site right now, as it seems to be causing problems. 

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,252: R2-Q5 (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, December 4, 2015

He's back, and slightly bigger than ever (from Hasbro)!  R2-Q5 has opening panels with painted arms and a swell finish - but none of the scopes that came with R2-D2 two years ago.   Is it cool?  Well, I think so, but I'm biased.  It's in stock for ordering right now, and you can read on to see if you should care!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,249: Crimson Stormtrooper (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 1, 2015

Hey, it's the Crimson Stormtrooper!   Or Magma Stormtrooper, or Lumiya's squad, depending on where you saw red troopers like this first.  (I'm voting for Lumiya.)  It's pretty awesome - and part of a new boxed set that's available right nowRead on!

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!

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.
