Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,474: Grand Moff Tarkin (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, April 18, 2018

One of the biggest hits of the new launch is Grand Moff Tarkin (The Black Series 6-Inch) .  There's a lot of good stuff - but this one is great.  He has a torture droid and easily the best "classic" likeness on one of these figures yet!  Read on.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,473: Han Solo (Solo, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, April 16, 2018

Lifelike but Aiden-ish, the Han Solo (Solo, The Black Series 6-Inch) is pretty good.  Nice costume, good articulation, excellent paint.   And you can find it online or at a store near you - read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,472: Lando Calrissian (Solo, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, April 13, 2018

I assume you have bought or are buying the Lando Calrissian (Solo, The Black Series 6-Inch)  because it's really cool. Removable scarf, removable cape, blaster with removable silencer/barrel/whatever - it's a lot of plastic, and the Donald Glover likeness is really good.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,471: Rey (Crait Defense, The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, April 11, 2018

If you like barely-different variations, Rey (Crait Defense) has salt shoes.  She's a lot like the other figures you bought last year, but hey, salt shoes.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,470: First Order Walker Driver (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, April 9, 2018

From the 4-pack, the First Order Walker Driver (The Last Jedi Line Look) is a great addition to your figure stash - but there's no vehicle for it to pilot just yet.  It's cool though, with added grey stripes to distinguish it from the half dozen or so Snowtroopers you bought since 2015.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,469: Rose (Crait Defense, The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, April 4, 2018

So check out Rose (Crait Defense) from the four-pack from The Last Jedi.  It's cool!  She has her necklace, and what's left of her First Order uniform.   And a blaster.  She's one of the cooler figures in the set, so assuming you didn't already buy one and are just looking to have your good sense of taste reenforced read on!

HasLab Sail Barge Passes 7,600, Star Wars Crowdfunding Ends at 11:59 PM Eastern Time

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 3, 2018

UPDATE: The item was backed with 8,840 Sail Barges sold, over the 5,000 goal.

HasLab's Star Wars Sail Barge now has over 7,600 supporters.  Obviously some must be doubling up, but that ain't bad - ends in just under 12 hours.   For those who haven't been following along at home, the vehicle includes a Yak Face on a Power of the Force cardback (seemingly with a slightly different image and Canadian-style layout) and needed 5,000 people to buy it for Hasbro to start production.   It's $499.99 plus applicable tax, and currently only ships to the USA and Canada unless you go through a third-party or set up your own freight forwarder.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,467: Maz Kanata (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, March 28, 2018

The Maz Kanata (The Black Series 6-Inch) is pretty neat - but small! There's a ton of painted detail and great sculpting here, but the shorter character looks to be a normal sized 3 3/4-inch figure in a big box.  She has a trunk, a blaster, and a lightsaber.  Read on!

Sail Barge Update - Maybe This Will Change Your Mind

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, March 21, 2018

A surge of support on the HasLab Sail Barge came Wednesday morning after EW.com and StarWars.com posted Check Out New Photos of the Fully-Painted Jabba’s Sail Barge Prototype from Hasbro.   While we all expected to see painted pictures before the end of the funding period, we didn't expect that it might include a bonus.   Now take notes on this part, some fans are unclear and you're going to be one of the smart ones.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,465: First Order Gunner (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, March 21, 2018

It's the First Order Gunner (The Last Jedi Line Look)!  He's in The Last Jedi 4-pack hitting now, and looks pretty sharp for a figure with almost no paint.  You'll want a few.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,464: Clone Captain Rex (The Last Jedi, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, March 19, 2018

Check out the 6-inch Clone Captain Rex.  It's a good one - they put Temura Morrison's face on this animated character, making it the most realistic Clone Trooper with a head of an actor that never portrayed said clone.  It's awesome though.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,463: DJ (Canto Bight, The Last Jedi, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, March 14, 2018

It's Dr. Gonzo!  Er, the Wolfman!  Ah, that mumbly guy!  DJ (Canto Bight, The Last Jedi, The Black Series 6-Inch) has a pretty great likeness and a fairly Star Wars-y costume.  Also, two blasters.   You may have seen him around, but if you haven't should you buy him?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,462: Rey (Island Journey, The Last Jedi, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, March 12, 2018

While we're all waiting for information on Toys R Us, you can look at the Rey (Island Journey) 6-inch action figure!  She has a cloth poncho plus a lightsaber, blaster, and staff.  It's nice stuff.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,461: DJ (Canto Bight, The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, March 7, 2018

Check out DJ (Canto Bight, The Last Jedi Line Look)!  This is a pretty awesome likeness given the size, although it loses a little scruff in the shrinkening.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,460: Resistance Tech Rose (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, March 5, 2018

It took her a while to sell down, but Resistance Tech Rose seems to be moving out of a lot of stores now that the Blu-Ray home release is coming up.  The figure has 5 joints and is similar to the much more desirable (but harder to find) super articlated version.  Read on!
