Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,356: Saw Gerrera (Rogue One Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 30, 2017

It's Saw Gerrera! Exclusive to the Jedha Revolt 4-pack, this figure is loaded with detail, big hair, and a couple of accessories.  If you didn't get one, you'll probably be sorry in a couple of years.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,355: Edrio Two Tubes (Rogue One Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 28, 2017

As named on the Jedha Revolt box, Edrio Two Tubes is a pretty good action figure.  He can stand and sit, he has exquisite sculpting - the head in particular - and he has superior painting.  The deco may not be entirely as accurate or as dark as the character in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, but he does have the pilot equipment and rfile you're going to want.  Hopefully you track this one down and don't miss it, because he's part of a worthwhile set.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,354: Chirrut Imwe (Rogue One Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 23, 2017

Coming soon to home video!  Chirrut Imwe was one of the surprise stars of Rogue One last year, and the 3 3/4-inch figure might be in a store near you - or not, it's hard to know.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,353: AT-AT Driver (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 21, 2017

Another 6-inch figure you probably haven't found at retail at all is the AT-AT Driver from last year.  It's pretty great - lots of detail, lots of buttons, lots of articulation.  It'll be perfect for that 6-inch scale AT-AT being made by nobody ever.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,352: Sabine Wren (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, March 15, 2017

If you enjoy life,  you'll probably want Sabine Wren.  This 6-inch action figure is a Rebel Mandalorian artist with four accessories and some amazing paint operations on her armor.  And working holsters.  And a removable helmet with an articulated rangefinder - even Boba and Jango don't have that.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,351: Snowtrooper (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, March 15, 2017

Still hard to find, the Snowtrooper has barely showed up in any stores - but you can get it online.  It has two blasters and just enough mud on his boots that I assume you're going to dig it.  I'd love it if you could army build it, but that seems unlikely right now.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,350: Scarif Stormtrooper Squad Leader (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, March 8, 2017

While the line was small, Rogue One brought us a lot of really cool figures last year like this Scarif Stormtrooper Squad Leader.  The 6-inch figure has a lot of color, plenty of articulation, and just enough paint on the gun to be interesting.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,349: Baze Malbus (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 7, 2017

This bigger Baze Malbus figure is in circulation now - if you're lucky enough to find one. (Just get it online.)  It has a huge gun and great articulation, plus rather large hair.  There's also an easily lost accessory in the mix!   You know you want one - read on.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,348: Chirrut Imwe (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 2, 2017

If you didn't get the 6-inch version of Chirrut Imwe, you totally should.  The cloth robes, the great articulation, and the surprisingly well-engineered lightbow all make for a great figure.    Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,347: Imperial Death Trooper (Target, The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, February 28, 2017

If you aren't yet sick of seeing the Imperial Death Trooper figures, Target has one too - theirs is in a gift set with a figure you want and another figure you already have.  This 6-inch trooper has distinctive gear over its armor, which means it's the version you want.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,346: R5-K6 (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, February 23, 2017

Hey, it's R5-K6!  The red robot is a new mold only seen at Toys R Us so far - but R5-D4 is coming next.   Should you get it?  I hope you already did - they're starting to vanish from Toys R Us in my neck of the woods already.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,345: R7-F5 (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, February 21, 2017

Hey, it's R7-F5! I'm on a plane so I wrote these up in advance so you could have something to read.  Its orange and I like it.  I hope you like it too.  Read on!

Toy Fair 2017: Playskool Playstuff

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, February 20, 2017

3305

So Playskool.  It's one of the niftiest ongoing formats that most collectors ignore.  Complete sets of the original Galactic Heroes are far and few between, but the new articulated format (which started under the Jedi Force banner) may be gettable.  One of the biggest new items was a BB-8 Action Base, which unfolds to reveal numerous compartments and gadgets - including more inside the big droid head.  I was told it included 2 figures, but 3 were on display.

Hasbro Toy Fair: 3 3/4-Inch Star Wars Die-Cast Metal Action Figures

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, February 18, 2017

3297 Metal!  You've seen these before, but the 3 3/4-inch diorama 40th Anniversary Titanium Series figures are pretty neat.  Han Solo, Princess Leia Organa, Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, and Obi-Wan Kenobi were all shown in person to the public for the first time.

Also shown, more packs of helmets.  When are they coming?  I have no idea, but we have pictures.

Hasbro Toy Fair: The Black Series Centerpiece 6-Inch Scale Star Wars Statues

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, February 18, 2017

3291 I'm not going to lie to you - I'm not a fan of The Black Series Centerpiece concept.  Statues are made by so many companies, so a 1:12 scale (6-inch) non-articulated figure on a display base with places to pose your other action figures on a shelf isn't particularly delightful to me.  It's kind of antithetical to the whole action figure motif - it stands there, it looks good, and it should be in the $50-$60 ballpark.
