Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,538: Han Solo (Brown Jacket, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 29, 2018

For years we've had more than Obi-Wan Kenobi, and now we've got more than one Han Solo.  Based on the 2018 Alden model, this 3 3/4-inch action figure is loaded with articulation and may be at a store near you.  We've been getting more new cases of wave 1 in my neck of the woods.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,537: Qi'Ra (Vandor-1, Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 27, 2018

This Qi'ra is one of Hasbro's best.  Great sculpt, good deco, and I didn't realize there was anything in front of me but plastic perfection until I got out the macro lens. The lips are painted a little strangely, but to my eyes the figure looks superb.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,536: Stormtrooper (Mimban, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 22, 2018

Happy Thanksgiving! I'm thankful I found this Stormtrooper (Mimban, The Black Series 6-Inch)  without much of a fight - it's a redeco of the 2013 Stormtrooper with a new head and a cape, but that's good enough for me.  Worth it if you can find one.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,535: Imperial Patrol Trooper (Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 20, 2018

Newish! This Imperial Patrol Trooper is at Target in a really cool boxed set right now, and it's been on sale for a few bucks off.  There are no known plans for a matching bike as of yet, but at least you can get the trooper before they go out of style.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,534: General Veers (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 15, 2018

Walgreens' General Veers (The Black Series 6-Inch)  is in stores now, provided you go to more than one of them.   Maybe you'll get lucky - it's a good figure!  Veers has extra parts to switch between his Star Destroyer look with cap and his helmeted, armored AT-AT commander look.  You've got options, and the face looks pretty amazing.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,533: Stormtrooper Squad Leader (Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 13, 2018

Today's 3 3/4-inch Stormtrooper Squad Leader is at a Target near you now, and probably marked down a few bucks.  It has a wonderful sculpt and sharp detailing, making it a great army builder if Hasbro ever decides to release it solo.  (See what I did there?) Anyway, get one. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,532: Stormtrooper (Mimban, a.k.a. Mudtrooper, Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 8, 2018

It's basically Han Solo with the mask glued on.  This Stormtrooper (Mimban) is in that 6 figure boxed set at Target, and it's a good collection for fans of the side stories and the Empire.   Even though you skipped the movie, I suspect you'll like the various troopers at the price.  (And it's on sale this week.)   Is it worth it?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,531: Imperial Assault Tank Driver (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 6, 2018

The must-buy trooper of the season is the Imperial Assault Tank Driver (The Vintage Collection)!  It fits in the tank, and you love the tank.  It shares parts with the recent Scarif Stormtrooper too.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,530: Darth Vader (Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 1, 2018

From Wave 3 of Force Link 2.0, this Darth Vader (Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)  is a new mold. I was surprised too - they incorporated some details, like the silver cheek, that we don't normally get at this size of original Darth Vader toys.  Read on!

Lucca Comics and Games - New Star Wars Black Series Reveal

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, October 31, 2018

3690 Also revealed today, Mace Windu!  This 6-inch The Black Series figure has that hyper-real likeness on the face so you know you're getting Samuel L. Jackson at his L. Jacksoniest.   

Particularly notable is an uncommon accessory at this size - a Jedi cloak!  We don't get a lot of these, but there have been a few fan-made ones over the last few years.  I haven't tried any myself, but I'm hopeful these will turn out better than some of the oddball 3 3/4-inch scale ones since 2006.  Even if it's not great, the rest of the figure looks phenomenal.  I'm excited.  I'm looking forward to 2019!

Lucca Comics and Games - New Star Wars Vintage Reveal

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, October 31, 2018

3688 Apparently Hasbro is on some European tour!  Today we got word of another The Vintage Collection figure - Poe Dameron!  ...yeah, you got one of these.  But you can get another one now!  This is the figure last sold as a Walmart exclusive (some of which ended up elsewhere far after the fact.)  Check it out.

Paris Comic Con Reveal - The Black Series Padme Amidala

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, October 26, 2018

3686 It only took five years for The Black Series to get its very first Padme Amidala!  This version is from Attack of the Clones, and is expected to drop in stores in 2019.   No other details - or any other upcoming AOTC costumed figures - are available at this time.

Paris Comic Con Reveal - The Vintage Collection Chewbacca MKII

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, October 26, 2018

3685 Hasbro mentioned it would be bringing back old molds - and this is an old mold! 2004's TVC Chewbacca is back with a new head as 2019's The Vintage Collection Chewbacca.  It looks cool - you may have 20 of them, but with a new head and new packaging it may warrant another look.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,528: Princess Leia Organa (Bespin Escape, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 25, 2018

You'll probably find this Princess Leia Organa (Bespin Escape, The Black Series 6-Inch) at a Target near you.    This recent release is an exclusive with one of the best paint jobs we've ever seen on a Hasbro human head, thanks to their new realistic paint deco techniques.   Is she worth tracking down?  Yes.  But read on anyway!
