Star Wars Fan Voting: The Doctor Is In

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, May 4, 2017

StarWars.com confirmed the winner of the recent fan poll for the next The Vintage Collection figure selected by fans is Marvel's Darth Vader sidekick, Doctor Aphra.  To which I say, not a bad choice!  Thank goodness it's a character we don't already all own as an action figure.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,366: Snap Wexley (The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, May 3, 2017

By now you probably already passed on Snap Wexley, but you can probably find him on sale somewhere with a Snowtrooper Officer on the cheap.  He has a ridiculous grappling hook gun and a less ridiculous pistol, so check it out. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,365: First Order Stormtrooper (The Force Awakens Value 6-Inch Figures)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, May 1, 2017

You probably will never see this "value" First Order Stormtrooper, at least not in its original packaging.  It was sold in Mexico and Australia.  The simplified 6-inch tall figure has 4 joints and looks cool on a shelf next to your other figures... but it's not a The Black Series figure.  Read on!

Vote Star Wars - The Vintage Collection Fan's Choice Poll Finalists

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, April 29, 2017


The StarWars.com voting for the Fan Choice poll is up now!  Interestingly, Ben Skywalker did not make the cut, and Emperor Palpatine - who got 0 votes here and I don't believe I saw on anyone else's top 6 - did.  Well, at press time Doctor Aphra (Marvel) and Ahoka (Rebels) are tied for the lead, so click here to vote for them or not!  If history is any indication, a close vote usually means we get both figures.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,364: Darth Maul (The Force Awakens 6-Inch Value Figures)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, April 27, 2017

Here's another one you probably don't have - this Darth Maul I've seen only a couple of times, and mostly at Big Lots! so far.  But they're not doing a lot of restocking here, so the 6-inch $6 figure is something you may want to chase down.   Why?  Read on!

New Star Wars Release Dates: May is the new December

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 25, 2017

Variety has a big story on a bunch of new movie release dates from Disney.   Of particular note, the as-of-yet untitled Episode IX has been given a date of May 24, 2019.  For those of you keeping track, the as-of-yet-Untitled Han Solo movie is set for May 2018 (still), and that's only 6 months after The Last Jedi hits theaters in December of this year.  

We don't know exactly why they're changing seasons for Star Wars, although it might have something to do with getting the heck out of the way of Avatar sequels or positioning Star Wars to take over for Marvel, which may be undergoing a retool of its own.   Indiana Jones 5 was also delayed to July of 2020.

From a toy business perspective, this could actually be really good news for Star Wars fans.  

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,363: Rey (The Force Awakens 6-Inch Value Figures)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 25, 2017

Hey  hey, it's Rey!  This value 6-inch figure might be at Big Lots, Family Dollar, or Dollar General in the USA for $6 or $7.   She has a lightsaber with a removable blade, 4 points of articulation, and not a lot of paint - but hey, what do you want for $6?   If you can find her, get her, and read on!

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

Star Wars Fan Choice 2017 - Galactic Hunter Tally

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, April 22, 2017

We got a lot of entries, a lot of possible ballot stuffing, and a lot of definitive ballot stuffing for the 2017 Fan Vote.   As stated, we weren't going to take duplicate entries from the same person - and in some cases it was difficult to tell if the entries were part of an organized effort or the same individual, so we left it in for now.   So who were the winners?  I'm glad you asked.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,362: Imperial AT-ACT Driver (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, April 20, 2017

The Imperial AT-ACT Driver is pretty cool - and at least locally, Hasbro shipped a bunch of this exclusive to Target stores.  I'm still seeing them this week!  It's basically the same as the Scarif Stormtrooper with new deco, but to me that's a pretty valid reason to buy a figure.
