Q&A: Mandalorian Mania and Star Wars Retro Sublets

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, December 4, 2022

This week in Q&A - Hasbro allowing a slice of its licensing? Probably not. You'll love this one, it's about Kenner so you know it's verbose. Also Classic Mandalorians. Well, sure.

Be sure you send in your questions for next time. The mailbag is out of questions, so if you got some, send some in. Read on!

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 1, 2022

Etsy Seller Made Star Wars Holiday Special Boba Fett's Panna Dragon

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 1, 2022

Via Trash Compactor on Etsy: Panna Dragon (from the Holiday Special) - 3D Printed - Original Design by JLCreationsByJay. It's big! You can fit retro/vintage figures, or Vintage figures in there! The good news is that it's a big, cartoony creature based on the classic Star Wars Holiday Special design. The bad news is that assembly and paint are required. And it's expensive. And shipping isn't cheap.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,982: Dengar (and IG-88, The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 1, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Dengar (and IG-88, The Retro Collection). His details are not as sharp as the original at all, but he can hold his blaster straight this time. That's arguably a big improvement in this Amazon exclusive figure set. The skin tone is somewhere in between the peachy and yellowy old faces you may have seen, with what feels like rock-solid construction and freely moving joints. Other than the fuzzy sculpted detail, Hasbro did a real good job here and the Kenner-style paint job turned out really well. And yes we have comparison photos with the originals. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,981: Axe Woves (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 29, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Axe Woves (The Vintage Collection). It's a body we've seen reused a few times, but with a new head and new deco - but that's fine, it's a good mold. Read on!

Q&A: Retro Willow Selection and Star Wars Pricing (But Different Pricing)

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, November 27, 2022

This week in Q&A - Willow? I haven't picked up the figures yet, but they're neat (and probably not going very far.) Pricing continues to be an issue, especially now as a lot of figures cost as much (or more than) some new packaged video games.

Be sure you send in your questions for next time. The mailbag is out of on-topic questions, so if you got some, send some in. Read on!

New Healey Made Trooper (Proto) Available

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, November 27, 2022

TropoperVia the Glyos News Dump: Here Is the New Healey Made Trooper (Proto). The $20 unpainted figure is the first crack at a new mold that seems to borrow a bit from a few 1980s 3 3/4-inch action figure lines.

 

If it's still in stock, you can get one - future versions will be coming in a few months and are usually painted. Click here to see if the retro-looking Kenner-esque figure is still available.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,980: Viper Probe Droid (Droid Factory / Disney)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 24, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Viper Probe Droid (Droid Factory / Disney). It's smaller than previous Kenner and Hasbro molds, but the detailing is really good and according to some reference sources, the smaller size is more accurate to The Empire Strikes Back too. But it's Thanksgiving, you're not reading toy reviews. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,979: Boba Fett (and Bossk, The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 22, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Boba Fett (and Bossk, The Retro Collection). It's a rerelease of a remake, with a couple of subtle differences that may just be batch variations - but hey, he holds his gun better, isn't that worth a look? Also Amazon has him in stock as I write this, but you came to know if it's any good. Read on for the full review!
