Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,023: Biker Scout (The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 25, 2023

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Biker Scout (The Retro Collection). If you have the 1983 original and his variants, this will look familiar - and weird. The helmet is a little distorted, and Hasbro made some curious deco decisions at the factory level, but it's not awful. It could be better - but the pistol is good and it looks like a Scout Trooper.

Q&A: Star Wars Reissues of Old Vintage and a New Max Rebo Band?

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,022: Wicket (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, April 20, 2023

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Wicket (The Black Series). It's new! It's ridiculous that a tiny figure like Wicket - smaller and less complex than a The Vintage Collection figure - should cost $25. But, I will say, it's probably the best Hasbro Wicket we'll ever get, and they certainly loaded him up with extra gear like a bow and arrow set. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,021: Chewbacca (& AT-ST, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 18, 2023

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Chewbcca (& AT-ST, The Vintage Collection). If he looks familiar, he should - this is a redeco of the 2004 Return of the Jedi Vintage figure from the Original Trilogy Collection. The AT-ST is a redeco of the vehicle that's over 10 years old - and all together, it's $90. Is it worth it? Well, it's cheaper than getting the previous releases of the Scout Walker, barely.

Q&A: Star Wars Dooku Supporters, Carded Storage, and Andor Complaints

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, April 16, 2023

This week in Q&A - did fans really vote for Count Dooku in a recent fan poll? If so, there's probably a good reason. Carded figure storage - how do you do it?

Also Cassian Andor (Aldahani Mission) from The Vintage Collection... how is it? I'm not crazy about it.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,020: Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight, The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, April 13, 2023

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight, The Retro Collection). This is a reissue of a figure that I first got in 1983, and with the new head I'd go as far as to say it seems more like an interesting new variant. The same figure mold - possibly with a recolored cloak, that's inconclusive - will be sold later this year as a The Book of Boba Fett Jedi Academy Luke Skywalker figure. Which seems like something Kenner would've done by the late 1980s. Read on!

Hasbro Technically Reveals The Book of Boba Fett Luke Skywalker from The Retro Collection

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 11, 2023

Sometimes Dr. Zaius is right - you might not like what you find. Gamespot posted a reveal of Book Of Boba Fett's Luke Skywalker Gets Star Wars Retro Figure without acknowledging that they didn't. It is, in fact, a repack of the reissue of Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight) from Kenner way back in 1983. It's a packaging variant for what I assume will be a popular figure with lots of demand, so that's good - but he doesn't have Luke's new shirt or boots. It's the same old thing.  Some pictures show a brown cloak, and some show black, so it's possible you might get a new black cloak here.

It's not even just different enough to make you mad - it's a real Kenner-style package logo/photo variation.  I should have seen it coming - it's a good economical idea for a business, less so for those of us who were hoping we might get the first post-trilogy Kenner-style Luke figure we've been wanting since the 1980s.

The review of the Return of the Jedi reissue - seemingly identical and shipping now - will be posted here on Thursday. (It's good.)

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,019: Fifth Brother (Inquisitor, The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 11, 2023

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Fifth Brother (Inquisitor, The Black Series). He has a big hat and a hilt he doesn't grip well, but there's a peg, I guess. Good sculpt, but a little weird in how it relates to the hilt. Read on!
