SDCC 2018: The Empire Strikes Back Mynock Hunt

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, June 13, 2018

3602 Sometimes we get exclusive figures, sometimes we get sneak peeks with exclusive gear.  The STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES HAN SOLO AND MYNOCK figures are a surprisingly fair $34.99 in a big fancy box that recalls the awesome Boba Fett from 2013.   Han has a breathing mask, Mynock, and some other goodies.  The box reads "Exogorth Escape," and if that seems baffling that's because you missed the Knights of the Old Republic comic books that gave a name and backstory to the big space slugs.  Mystery is dead, but the hunt lives on - more pictures and press info after the break. 

It's pretty dang cool.  At this time we do not know if this is the final exclusive or what else Hasbro  has planned - for the last two years, we've been treated to surprise exclusives on the day of the show.   You might not even know what you're missing when you're on the show floor.

SDCC 2018: The Force Awakens Exclusive

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, June 13, 2018

3596 We got a Rey in 2017 and an unmasked Kylo Ren in 2016, so in 2018 we get STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES CENTERPIECE REY (STARKILLER BASE) & KYLO REN.   The Centerpiece Rey is available here for the first time, and Kylo Ren appears to be retooled from previous releases. 

The Rey is a Centerpiece, meaning lights are yes and articulation is no.  There's a misting system and a fancy light-up backdrop.  Kylo Ren has a uniquely expressive face, a torn shirt, and lots of articulation. Also snow deco.

The set is $109.99.  More images and the press info after the jump.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,490: Range Trooper (Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, June 13, 2018

It's small! The 3 3/4-inch Range Trooper (Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)  has big boots, fake fluff, and a blaster.  I like it.   I'd like to see some more.  Read on!

Toys R Us Canada has Exclusive Stormtrooper, No Known US Release

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, June 11, 2018

3593 Toys R Us will survive in Canada, and they have this exclusive Stormtrooper.  It's a lot like our other troopers with a stand and some flame accessories, and it's CAN$49.99.    A standard figure is CAN$29.99, so it's $20 extra for two painted flame pieces, a new blaster, a couple of black paint splotches, and a grey display base.   We'll post more about when or if this becomes available elsewhere.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,489: Chewbacca (Vandor, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, June 11, 2018

It's Chewbacca!  This 6-inch scale figure from Solo: A Star Wars Story is exclusive to Target and probably in stock at a store near you.  That DPCI is 087-06-9531.  Read on!

Star Wars Doctor Aphra Action Figure Set from Hasbro Debuts at SDCC!

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, June 6, 2018

3589 With three figures and a bit of sticker shock, this year's first (possibly only) 3 3/4-inch Star Wars Comic-Con exclusive in San Diego has been revealed!  Doctor Aphra is joined by 0-0-0 and BT-1 from Marvel's Doctor Aphra and Darth Vader comic books.  They're good fun, and those who read the stories have been requesting the Doctor and especially her droids for years.  

The set comes in a vintage-era-inspired "Special" box, wrapped in that foil styling we're seeing on more convention exclusives as of late.   Pictures and Hasbro's press copy after the jump.  (Spoiler - it's $49.99.)

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,488: K-2SO (Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, June 6, 2018

It's more or less just different enough to make you mad! The K-2SO (Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)  has a sound chip and slightly  better antenna on the back - but it's functionally very similar.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,487: Captain Phasma (First Order Disguise, The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, June 4, 2018

Captain Phasma (First Order Disguise, The Last Jedi Line Look)  was meant for a main line release, but ended up almost not coming out - instead, you can find it as an Entertainment Earth exclusive.   She has a staff, a backpack, a cape, a blaster, and Finn too.   I love how both arms are pre-posed to hold either weapon, plus they painted her arms silver rather than molding them in a not-matching swirly color.  It's nice.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,486: Chewbacca (Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, May 30, 2018

Hopefully you saw the movie, because today we look at Chewbacca (Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)!  This awesome figure has a unique bandolier and a decent paint job.   And it's probably sold out at a store near you.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,485: Wampa (with Luke Skywalker, Solo/The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, May 28, 2018

Packaged in a red and white box with The Last Jedi hues but shipping in the Solo assortments, the most-articulated Wampa yet is out in the Force Link 2.0 assortments - but at press time, the app and Force Link band require an as-of-yet unpublished firmware update to make it talk.  (We got one update to get most toys working, this one still doesn't.)   There are a lot of weird, wrong things about the toy's sound chip and box, but the jointed knees and elbows will get you your best Wampa yet.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,484: Supreme Leader Snoke (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, May 23, 2018

One of the more highly-requested figures after The Force Awakens came out, Supreme Leader Snoke has had a pretty good recent run as action figures.   This one has a cloth outfit and a generous slathering of articulation, and it's also the only completely new figure in the new 2018 The Vintage Collection so far.   As such, you're probably on your way to buy one.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,483: Finn (First Order Disguise, The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, May 21, 2018

I'm a fan of this Finn, in part because it's exclusive where I work and in stock right now.  He has a great sculpt, a good costume, and above par accessories - and the voice clips are actually him.  Sure, some are from another movie, but it's something.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,482: Kylo Ren (with display base and metal helmet, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, May 16, 2018

The long-delayed Kylo Ren (with display base and metal helmet, The Black Series 6-Inch)  hit a few weeks ago, and it's surprisngly decent.  He has a metal helmet and a cloth cape, and if that weren't enough there's also a display base that can connect to Snoke's throne.   It's a lot of plastic, and you're charged accordingly.  Is it worth it? Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,481: Kylo Ren (The Black Series Centerpiece)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, May 14, 2018

With a better design, a better sculpt, better electronics, and an actual moment from the movies, this Kylo Ren Centerpiece figure is the 6-inch statue you never knew you wanted.  The box is cool, the figure is awesome, and the Force-frozen blaster bolt is the best.   Read on!
