Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,262: First Mate Quiggold (The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 17, 2016

And now, First Mate Quiggold!  He's the first mate on Sidon Ithano's ship, and one of Hasbro's most detailed 3 3/4-inch action figures for The Force Awakens.  And he has a giant rocket launcher that will no doubt go in to the collector's junk drawer.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,261: Han Solo (The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, March 16, 2016

It's Han Solo!  Not only did Harrison Ford come back to play one more turn as Han Solo last year, but now we know he's going to be back as Indiana Jones in 2019.  Perhaps you'll find this new 3 3/4-inch figure by then - it's not bad!  Han has his new jacket, old blaster, and a new green gun too.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,260: Sidon Ithano (The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 15, 2016

Also known as the Crimson Corsair, Sidon Ithano is part of a swell new 2-pack.  He's got 5 joints, a gun, and his pal Quiggold.  And a cape - I almost forgot the cape!  It's quite a cape.  Check it out, read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,259: Luke Skywalker (The Force Awakens Value 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, March 11, 2016

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!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,258: Darth Vader (The Force Awakens Value 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 10, 2016

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!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,257: Han Solo (The Force Awakens Value 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, March 9, 2016

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!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,256: Kanan Jarrus (The Force Awakens Value 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 8, 2016

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!

Q&A: Star Wars Metal Vehicles, Hasbro's Direction, and Old Classic Prototypes

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, March 6, 2016

This week in Q&A - let's talk about Titanium and Hot Wheels vehicles - did you miss some? Probably! Changes - I don't plan on making many, but you asked. And old prototypes - there's really only one way to handle selling those things, and I think you know what it is.

And maybe some other stuff throughout the week if I stop being sick.

Hasbro Delivers New Star Wars 6-Inch Scale Figures to Family Dollar

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, February 27, 2016

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.
