While I've got more of these bigger guys coming in the mail, this Luke Skywalker completes the current round of 6-inch "value" figures which may be at a store that you don't frequent near you right now. Luke doesn't have hip joints, but he is pretty big for the price. Want to see more? Read on!
Another 6-inch budget figure! Darth Vader is pretty much required to exist in any figure format, so the enlarged toy with reduced articulation would be a given. He's not taller than Han or his casemates, but he is a lot more fun to play with than a cake topper. Unlike the others, his lightsaber is completely removable from his hand - but should you go on a toy run to try to find this one? Read on!
Continuing the value range of 6-inch Hasbro figures at Family Dollar, let's look at Han Solo. His blaster is molded to his hand, and the texture on his pants is pretty intense. The head deco is similar to the vintage Kenner figures of old, and he looks a lot like Hasbro's other recent offerings of Harrison Ford from the original movie. Read on!
And here we go again! This Kanan Jarrus is a 6-inch action figure with 4 points of articulation that you can't really easily find online. I'm only finding them at Family Dollar stores - it's a "value" item. Should you get one? Is a $6.75 6-inch figure worth your while? Read on!
If you're a living, breathing fan of Star Wars it's a safe bet that you're always looking for something new. Well, I've found it. We saw images of a Finn last year, which I have yet to see here in the USA, but I have seen new 6-inch action figures of Kanan Jarrus, Luke Skywalker, and Darth Vader at Family Dollar. Presumably these are showing up elsewhere, too.
The headline says it all, and this story at Bloomberg says even more. This is at least the second attempted takeover/merger between the two toy giants, and there's no word on if it is or isn't happening - but it's certainly interesting timing with Toy Fair next week. Read this one.
Hasbro's new PR team wrote in today to share a tidbit about Toy Fair - and we spoiled it in the headline. They say:
"We wanted to let you know that there will be no toys based on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story shown at Toy Fair this year. While there will be a small selection of new Star Wars toys revealed at Toy Fair and in the days leading up to it, none of them will be directly based on the new characters from the upcoming film."

America's newspaper The USA Today posted this preview of the new 2016 Princess Leia Figure as based on Star Wars Rebels which, as should come as no surprise, is based on early concept art from the original movie. It is due this Fall, and I can't wait to buy one! Meanwhile, series stars Sabine and Hera remain elusive.
Also, there is no Lando Calrissian toy based on his appearances (voiced by Billy Dee Williams) on Star Wars Rebels.

Hey, it's Constable Zuvio! He has a magnificent paint job on his armor, and we know absolutely nothing about him in the movie yet. Well. With that, I'm taking a FOTD break because I actually would like to see the movie before commenting any more on these - so read on, for what it's worth.
Arguably the figure of the season, the 6-inch Captain Phasma is the one your pals want and can't find - I haven't seen her in stores personally yet, but her wave mates? You'll see those. She's pretty much exactly as good as you might expect from this line, so read on!
