By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, March 13, 2016

This week in Q&A - Just how much stuff did you miss? Lots! If you blink your life will fly right by you, and action figures will go with it. And The Secrets of Disney's Star Wars - are we helping? And TIE Fighters. Is there a best one? Or... is it a tie? The pun may anger you!

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.

Q&A: Exclusivo, Playsets, Star Wars Toy Fair Funtimes

My eyeballs feel like they're melting, so that means I'm getting sick or allergies or perhaps it's just time for Q&A! Let's talk about exclusives a bit, with Classic Characters and not many new releases. Hey, that's life. And why not fill some space with vehicles and playsets? Sure, let's do!

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.

Hasbro Gets the Urge to Merge - With Mattel?

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, February 4, 2016

The headline says it all, and this story at Bloomberg says even more.  This is at least the second attempted takeover/merger between the two toy giants, and there's no word on if it is or isn't happening - but it's certainly interesting timing with Toy Fair next week.  Read this one.

Star Wars Rogue One at Toy Fair: Nope

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, February 3, 2016

Hasbro's new PR team wrote in today to share a tidbit about Toy Fair - and we spoiled it in the headline.  They say:

"We wanted to let you know that there will be no toys based on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story shown at Toy Fair this year. While there will be a small selection of new Star Wars toys revealed at Toy Fair and in the days leading up to it, none of them will be directly based on the new characters from the upcoming film."
