Hasbro's Pulse Starts Again - Scarif Stormtroopers

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 1, 2016

The unfortunately named Hasbro Pulse beats rarely, but when it does we're in for a treat.  Today it's Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Introduces the Scarif Stormtrooper.  You get a look at the three ranks of the trooper, and one wonderful little bit of confirmation:

"You can add the Scarif Stormtrooper to your collection right now with the Star Wars Universe 3.75” 2-pack featuring the Scarif Stormtrooper and Moroff. All three styles of Scarif Stormtrooper will be available in the 3.75” inch series in the spring. The Scarif Stormtrooper Squad Leader is available right now in our 6-inch Black Series. You can also pick up a 12” Shoretrooper next Spring."

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,316: Darth Maul (Rebels, Rogue One Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, November 30, 2016

Hey kids, it's Darth Maul!  In the far-flung futurey past of Star Wars Rebels, he retains his cybernetic lower torso and legs, but has once more lost his shirt.  Poor guy just can't keep his shirt on.   This is why Darth Maul  is the Iggy Pop of outer space.  Want to know more about this new figure?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,315: Seventh Sister Inquisitor (Rebels, Rogue One Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 29, 2016

The Seventh Sister Inquisitor was shown last February at Toy Fair and started hitting stores about a month ago - along with another shirtless Darth Maul, as is the style at the time.  She has a miniature droid, a lightsaber, and a removable face mask. She also has the ability to fall over and has eschewed such elements as foot peg holes.  Want to know more?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,314: Princess Leia Organa (Rebels, Rogue One Line Look)

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,313: QT-KT (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 24, 2016

If you can't get enough pink in your action figure boxes, QT-KT is one you'll want.  There aren't many pink figures in the thousands of plastic men and women in Star Wars, but here's one.  It's based on the bartender droid mold, minus the bartender stuff.  Also, Happy Thanksgiving.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,312: Snowtrooper Officer (White, Rogue One Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, November 23, 2016

This is the first Snowtrooper Officer to be made in Vietnam - and at first glance, it's just a deco variant.  But it's not.   This is an all-new sculpt - everything is basically in the same place, but the details, the textures, and the sizes of elements have changed.  The height is a little different, and you'll notice some pretty significant changes on the bottom of the backpack.  Check it out - read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,311: Imperial Death Trooper (Rogue One)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 22, 2016

It's the Death Trooper!  Which is kind of a silly name for a government to employ for its military, but then again we also have a Death Star and such.  It's a decent figure with a ridiculous backpack - and it comes in a two-pack with a cool alien. I assume you've bought yours by now.  If not, read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,307: Captain Cassian Andor (Eadu, Rogue One)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 15, 2016

Hey kids, Hoth Battle Gear is making a comeback!   Captain Cassian Andor (Eadu) looks like he draws from equal measures Luke and Han from The Empire Strikes Back, which means they probably nailed the costume here.  He has a gun, a zipline, and a better-than-expected face given the tiny features and stubble.  He's shipping now - should you track him down?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,306: Rebel Commando Pao (Rogue One)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, November 14, 2016

Rebel Commando Pao has a familiar backpack and an all-new screaming head!   The rest of him is also pretty much all-new.  It's part of a good two-pack with a Death Trooper, so you'll probably want to get it.  You can also get it in a Kohl's set.  Point being, you're going to wind up with one.  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?

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,305: Scarif Stormtrooper Squad Leader (Rogue One)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 10, 2016

The Scarif Stormtrooper Squad Leader is pretty awesome - and it's part of a great set.  I'm seeing these around, so you should probably snag one when you see it.  Just look at those colors!  It's pretty fancy.  Read on!
