By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 15, 2016

Hey kids, Hoth Battle Gear is making a comeback!   Captain Cassian Andor (Eadu) looks like he draws from equal measures Luke and Han from The Empire Strikes Back, which means they probably nailed the costume here.  He has a gun, a zipline, and a better-than-expected face given the tiny features and stubble.  He's shipping now - should you track him down?  Read on!

Rebel Commando Pao has a familiar backpack and an all-new screaming head!   The rest of him is also pretty much all-new.  It's part of a good two-pack with a Death Trooper, so you'll probably want to get it.  You can also get it in a Kohl's set.  Point being, you're going to wind up with one.  Read on!

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, November 13, 2016

This week in Q&A - ALIENS - at least it's not politics, right? And old Expanded Universe exclusives - is there hope that you'll see these now-Legends characters again as toys? No. Hope is a lie. And 5-jointed wonders - what's new for the old school?

And send in your questions for next week. Read on!

Toys R Us Hasbro Star Wars Rogue One Cassian Andor and Stormtrooper Exclusive Figures Hitting

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, November 13, 2016

3207 It's here too!  For $14.99 - and apparently not qualifying for the 20% off sale right now - the Star Wars Rogue One Cassian Andor and Stormtrooper Exclusive Figure Two-Pack is in stores now. As always, I found it in Phoenix, AZ and it was the last one at the store I visited.  Good hunting!

The set includes Cassian Andor from the U-Wing fighter (with slightly better paint), a redeco of the single-carded Stormtrooper, Sabine's zipline, and more.  That's a decent amount of plastic for $15.

Kohl's Rogue One Hasbro Action Figure Set: In Stock, Deal Stacking

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, November 11, 2016

Kohl's pricing is tricky - they're usually more expensive than other stores, but run promotions regularly that change the actual cost of the item.  This year, they've got a swell Star Wars Rogue One Battle 4-Pack Figurine Set with a normal going rate of $49.99.   Today, the base price was $34.99 when I placed my order not 10 minutes ago, and as of right now it's $39.99.  It may well move again.   I used the codes USA10 and VETERAN to get it down to under $25 with free in-store pick-up and sales tax - but again, that pricing seems to change, so be careful when checking out and check the coupon code sites.  But why is this set different enough to make you mad?

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,305: Scarif Stormtrooper Squad Leader (Rogue One)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 10, 2016

The Scarif Stormtrooper Squad Leader is pretty awesome - and it's part of a great set.  I'm seeing these around, so you should probably snag one when you see it.  Just look at those colors!  It's pretty fancy.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,304: Moroff (Rogue One)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, November 9, 2016

It's Moroff!  He comes with a trooper you want, but is actually a pretty fantastic figure himself.  He may have laughable hair, but it would seem that sort of thing is accepted as of late.   He also includes a giant backpack cannon and a smaller - but still big - rifle.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,303: Imperial Stormtrooper (Rogue One)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 8, 2016

This new Imperial Stormtrooper looks like how most people imagined Sandtroopers in the 1990s - most customs were just a shoulder pad on a Stormtrooper, and it was always orange. The configuration appered in Star Wars Rebels too - but this is the movie Rogue One version with an added ammo pouch.  Swanky!  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,302: Baze Malbus (Rogue One)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, November 7, 2016

Baze Malbus is some sort of weapons expert in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.   The figure was designed accordingly with a massive backpack rocket launcher that may or may not be in the movie.  I have no idea - all I know is that I have this figure in my hands and it looks pretty good.  Read on!
