Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,499: First Order Flametrooper (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 17, 2018

This The Last Jedi figure didn't make it out to stores, but a small run did get built for Entertainment Earth.  The double-handed First Order Flametrooper (The Last Jedi Line Look) has some color and deco changes, making it a better troop-builder than its The Force Awakens brothers and/or sisters.  Read on!

Q&A: More Star Wars Solo, Wampas, and Disney License Fun

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, July 15, 2018

This week in Q&A - Solo futures! Does it have one? Sort of. Wampa vintageness - is it an exceptionally good toy in benign packaging? Maybe. And what about the Disney license apocalypse - what's new there? (Not much, but we've been asked to speculate.)

Be sure you send in your questions for next week. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,498: Mimban Stormtrooper (Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, July 12, 2018

Today!  The Mimban Stormtrooper (Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look) is dirty, but that's how we like it.  We've known Stormtroopers were on Mimban for decades, but this is the first time we've seen them.  Read on!

16bit.com Figure of the Day - Onell Design Glyos Vlixden

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, July 11, 2018

3610 We don't usually post non-Hasbro, non-Star Wars figures but this one was special.  Onell Design and I kicked around a couple of ideas and now you can have an indie figure tribute to Droids Vlix!  It's Vlixden, a $10 3-inch figure going on sale at Onell.store come 9:30 PM EDT tonight.  It's cool - it's Vlix! The special design has the little kerchief and eyebrow, plus the color scheme.  It's not Vlix, but it's the closest and I believe only thing that has come close this century.  I love it.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,497: Luke Skywalker (Jedi Master, Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 10, 2018

This Luke Skywalker (Jedi Master) is from Solo - and it's almost the same as The Last Jedi.   There's a different sound chip which is still not Mark Hamil, and there's a green Force Link symbol on the foot.  Otherwise, it's arguably not different enough to warrant a mention.  Read on!

Q&A: Solo, Exclusives, and Star Wars Droids Eternal

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, July 8, 2018

Be sure you send in your questions for next week. Read on!

Forces of Destiny's Porgs come with Chewbacca at SDCC 2018

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, July 6, 2018

3609 Forces of Destiny had a lot going for it - much of which may never see the light of day.  New episodes keep streaming, but new toys are far and few between.  The Porgs with Chewbacca got far enough along that you can snag yours at Comic-Con in a couple of weeks.  Cnet has the scoop - Chewie can be bought today, but the whole set is $50 at the show.  Read more here.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,496: Qi'ra (Corellia, Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, July 5, 2018

This Qi'ra (Corellia, Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look) is pretty great - the skirt doesn't prevent her from sitting in Han's speeder, plus she has swivel wrists.  It's something you should buy before it goes away.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,495: Moloch (Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, July 2, 2018

One of the few new alien figures from Solo is Moloch - and he fits right in with your classic figures.  With a staff, a blaster, and a removable mask, this is a gem.  As one of the White Worms, there's a tail under the robes.  Its a heck of a cool design, and I'm seeing this one out and about a bit more lately.  Read on!

Q&A: Star Wars Solo, 4-Inch Stuff, and More Solo

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,494: Kessel Guard (Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, June 27, 2018

The Kessel Guard is pretty cool - the helmet looks like a kitchen appliance, the arms remind me of Chirrut Imwe, and it's just generally very Star Warsy.   Plus it comes with Lando, so you should get one.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,493: Lando Calrissian (Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, June 25, 2018

It's Lando Calrissian!  He's from a 2-pack in the Solo line that seems to be selling pretty well right now - but you can probably find it if you make a couple of stops on your next toy hunt.   Read on!

Q&A: The Star Wars License, Toys R Us, Jurassic Parked

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, June 24, 2018

This week in Q&A - Renewing the license at Hasbro! I think it's very much in their interests. Jurassic compatibility - does Mattel's dinosaur line play nice with Jedi Knights? Toys R Us - well, it's depressing, let's leave it at that.

It's time to send in your questions for next week. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,491: Power Droid (Wind-Up Fight Droids, Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, June 20, 2018

From Disney, the Power Droid (Wind-Up Fight Droids) is pretty big - it might be too big, but it's neat.  It walks and swings its arms with all the precision of the windmill.   It's $9.95 for both figures, so it's plenty cheap.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,491: Luke Skywalker (Hoth, The Last Jedi / Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, June 18, 2018

Despite the fact that nobody seems to be talking about them, the Solo line has been pretty fantastic.  The Luke Skywalker (Hoth, The Last Jedi / Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)  has a great sculpt with deco that's good, but not perfect, compared to other releases.  (Gloves, rank badge.)  It also has the best ever Wampa.   Read on!
