Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,370: Stormtrooper Officer (Rogue One, Kohl's)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, May 17, 2017

So if you're a variant guy, the Stormtrooper Officer (Rogue One, Kohl's)  is of interest.  This one has a white pauldron and was sold at Kohl's.  Another one with a white pauldron and blast-off armor was sold at Toys R Us.  You ignored most of these, so be forewarned to get while the getting is good.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,369: Admiral Raddus (Rogue One)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, May 15, 2017

Did you get Admiral Raddus?  You should! The figure has an opening mouth and some pretty fantastic sea-adjacent space paint.   I like the outfit, I like the weapons, and the gimmick is a hoot.   Read on!

Q&A: Old and Hot, Star Wars Widevision, and Licensing

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, May 14, 2017

This week in Q&A - Old Junk. When does it become good junk? Widevision cards - Topps didn't respond to our inquiry, so maybe you have an answer? And licensing funtimes - what's the deal with international stuff, anyway?

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

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,368: R2-A3 (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, May 10, 2017

Seemignly not painted exactly right, R2-A3 is still a pretty nice 6-inch-scale droid.   He has pop-open panels with arms, special gear, and probably the wrong color of dome, unless there are props in the archives I'm unaware of, which is possible but probably undocumented.  He was in a 3-pack last year, and it's probably gone from a store near you.  Read on!

It came out about a year ago, but it's time to look at the First Order Snowtrooper Officer!  I've got some new guys to open and review too, but this week's all set up with a redeco of a guy you probably have enough of by now.  Read on!

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

Star Wars Fan Voting: The Doctor Is In

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, May 4, 2017 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 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.
