Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,168: Han Solo (The Black Seres)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, July 31, 2015

This new Han Solo from what may be one of the last waves (that we know of) for the 3 3/4-inch The Black Series is here!  He's cool - as in frozen - and loaded with articulation. Despite this he can't quite perfectly use his handcuffs, but the carbonite block is new and it's quite nice.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,167: Stormtrooper (The Black Seres)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, July 30, 2015

We looked at a Black Series Stormtrooper, but not this Black Series Stormtrooper!  There was another one of those trademark running changes, you see.  This one?  New helmet.   It's still basically the same construction as the Sandtrooper you got with a Dewback a few years ago, and if you didn't, shame on you.    It's pretty good - it comes on the newer TIE Pilot blue cardback if you want one.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,166: Captain Rex (The Black Seres)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, July 29, 2015

Check out Captain Rex!   This Black Series 3 3/4-inch "realistic" figure can be found now at a store near you, if you are lucky.

His helmet is a little small, but he has some pretty amazing paint applications.  Another "Phase 1" Captain Rex figure was shown a few years ago, but remains unreleased - so how is this one?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,165: Chewbacca (The Black Seres)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 28, 2015

"Is that a new figure?" is probably one of the most common questions I'm asked here.  This Chewbacca just came out a few months ago and the answer is... sort of.  There's a new head with a great roaring expression and hair based on the original film, which makes this sort of a super-articulated version of the 1978 original.   I quite like it - and you might too.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,164: Mosep Bineed (The Black Seres)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, July 24, 2015

We're back! For now.  Let's look at Mosep Bineed, the first all-new Cantina alien in several years and one of precious few non-Clone new characters to hit the line in a while.  And lucky for you, he's still pretty cheap online so get while the getting is good.  Read on!

SDCC 2015: Hasbro Booth Adds Season 2 Rex and Inquisitor

By Mike — Sunday, July 12, 2015

Hasbro adds Season 2 Rex and the second Inquisitor to their booth. These figures are slated for release in Spring 2016 along with Mission Series Ahsoka Tano and Darth Vader. Rex features a nice removable helmet that perfectly on his bald and bearded noggin. Here's hoping a Season 2 Wolf is not far behind, although this figure will be probably require swappable heads.

Hasbro Star Wars Panel - Adam's Impressions As They Happened

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, July 10, 2015

Editor's note: Adam wrote this up as he sat in the panel.  As such, it makes about as sense as you might expect for first-impressions as they happen.

Argle bargle panel! It's dark, it's noon, and I'm sitting near the back of a partially filled conference room. Jeff Labovitz is starting the talk with a bunch of other people whose names are too far away for me to see with all the heads in the way.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,163: R2-Series Astromech Droid Grey and Green (not R7-A7)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, July 3, 2015

Thanks once more to my pal Shannon, we've got a R2-Series Astromech Droid Grey and Green (not R7-A7) - plus a bunch more as part of the second wave of figures.  With this one there's a fine line between "proper configuration" and "I need one of each part," so you're seeing the "I need one of each part" configuration.  How does Ahsoka's droid translate to realism via theme park?  Read on!

Toys R Us Jabba the Hutt - Star Wars Gangster Gets New Hasbro Mold

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, June 30, 2015

My pal who I will call Juan Nonymous sent along sample shots of the Jabba's Rancor Pit gift set Jabba the Hutt in comparison with the 2010 model from Walmart.  This new-for-2015 version is a 100% new mold with new deco, meaning it is... say it with me...

"Just different enough to make you mad."   Well, not Jabba, Jabba's new and interesting.  The rest of the set is as interesting as your collection isn't - it's great stuff if you don't got it yet.  This set will be sold at the Entertainment Earth Booth at Comic-Con next week, on Toys R Us.com, and probably retail stores too.  Want to see more images?  Check after the jump.
