By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 16, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Boba Fett (Prototype Edition - Green Head, The Retro Collection). There are at least six color configurations - and mine looks like a Crayola box! Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,838: Remnant Stormtrooper (The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, July 15, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Remnant Stormtrooper (The Retro Collection). This version looks like the old Kenner one, but comes on a retro card and is dirty. Also it comes packaged with a board game. It was originally exclusive to Hasbro Pulse and Disney Shop, but now you can get it at Entertainment Earth and potentially elsewhere. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,821: Moff Gideon (The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, June 1, 2021

We're almost out of Kenner retro figures to review - but I don't want to live in the present! Moff Gideon (The Retro Collection). The Darksaber is the old Bespin/Jedi Luke lightsaber, but in black. The blaster pistol is new. The vinyl cape is retro, and on this particular figure seems like a good stylistic choice despite the vinyl capes being phased out of new characters by 1982. Read on!

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,816: Kuiil (The Retro Collection). This Ugnaught looks a little bit different from the vintage one, and takes a few liberties with the rubbery head from the TV show. It's still cool, and a lot more colorful than the previous figures.

Available Now: Vintage 1970s-Style Kenner Grand Moff Tarkin Action Figure (with disposable board game)

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, May 5, 2019

3707 The very, very long-awaited Grand Moff Tarkin in 3 3/4-inch 1978-style has arrived at Target stores.  Use DPCI 087-06-0431 in-stores or this link for availability.  It's $19.99 and packed in a remake of the "Escape the Death Star" board game, which was produced by Kenner in late 1977 in order to get something, anything, on shelves thanks to its lack of tooling.  It's basically a $7 protective shell around Tarkin's 6x9-inch cardback, pre-punched, faux-weathered, stickered, and complete with a blaster pistol that's pretty darned convincing as almost an original.

Toy Fair 2019 - Hasbro Star Wars: The Retro Collection

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, February 16, 2019

Star Wars goes Kenner! Six reissues and one new vintage-style "ReAction"-esque figure are seemingly exclusive to Target, and of course sold out preorders in seconds. Hopefully Target and Hasbro don't pull a Spinosaurus and keep them coming all year long!
