Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,123: Luke Skywalker (Star Wars Rebels Saga Legends)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, March 16, 2015

Our next week of Figure of the Day kicks off with Luke Skywalker, a 2015 redesign with a helmet and not a lot of paint.  It's a pretty fun figure, but has no gun.  It does fit nicely inside pretty much any 3 3/4-inch scale X-Wing toy you may own, though, so go ahead and give this one a look.  Read on!

Q&A: Star Wars Vehicle Perfections, International Distribution, and TV Showdown

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, March 15, 2015

Let's Q&A! We talk Canada - and are dismissive, as we are Americans. And The Clone Wars - while dwindling, it ain't dead. Also vehicle greatest hits - is this a good time to buy if you want a definitive take on anything?

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,122: Wookiee Warrior (Star Wars Rebels Mission Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, March 13, 2015

We've had a bunch of nameless Wookiee Warrior action figures, but this is the first cartoon one!  He's skinny, hairy, and tall - and comes in a two-pack with another character.   Should you add to the growing Wookiee horde?  Read on!

Star Wars: Rogue One Is a New Movie Title

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 12, 2015

The Gareth Edwards stand-alone movie has a title: Star Wars: Rogue One.   What's it about?  Well, it's probably about two hours long and it should be in theaters for December 16, 2016.  As your attorney, I advise you to start making room for the new toys one new movie per year are sure to bring you.

Do you need a bunch of new Wookiees? I do.  I can't say if you do though.  What I can say is that you can get Wullffwarro right now, and he's pretty cool!  Read on for more in Figure of the Day.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,120: IG-88 (Star Wars Rebels Mission Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, March 11, 2015

Hey kids, it's IG-88! This Mission Series figures is similar in execution to the original Kenner toy, but shorter and with one gun.   And a significantly better sculpt.  You'll want to check out the comparison photos, but probably not my brief thoughts on the figure, when you read on.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,119: Bossk (Star Wars Rebels Mission Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 10, 2015

Meet the new Bossk! (Not the same as the old Bossk.)   In Figure of the Day we look at this 2015 release and compare it to the 1980s version - which one is taller?  The answer may surprise you

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,118: Sabine Wren (Star Wars Rebels Mission Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, March 9, 2015

And we're back! Few columns get as many letters and as few reads as Figure of the Day, and it's back for a while with a look at the figures hitting hard now.  Like Sabine Wren from Star Wars Rebels here - she's got two guns, her helmet doesn't come off, and for budget reasons her paint job isn't quite what you see on TV.  But she's still pretty neat!

Six Second Toy Talk: Star Wars Rebels Imperial Troop Transport Vehicle

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, March 4, 2015

It's shipping! I got the Imperial Troop Transport from Star Wars Rebels when I ordered it at Entertainment Earth (available here now in a case with 2 per box). It's neat! It has articulated front cannons, 2 firing rockets, storage for 9 figures, and places to keep bunches of weapons. It does not have funny hats, wheels, a record player, or a large trunk for storage. Watch Six Second Toy Talk after the break to see it in action. It won't take long.

USA Today Reveals Star Wars Rebels Darth Vader and [Redacted]

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 3, 2015

Be warned, if you haven't seen last night's episode of Star Wars Rebels then this story on USA Today may ruin it for you.  Darth Vader is well known, so I can post this headline: Darth Vader's back in 'Star Wars Rebels'.  You knew that.  And now we know Hasbro is doing a figure for it, which is fantastic news - but there's another figure coming with him, and that's what you may not yet want to know.

Galactic Hunter Video Theater Presents: Star Wars Rebels - Fire Across the Galaxy

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, March 2, 2015

Tonight's season finale of Star Wars Rebels doesn't answer many of the hanging questions, but we do get a big peek behind the curtain in "Fire Across the Galaxy." We see a potential death, an unmasking, and wrap up Kanan's imprisonment with what is probably the best space battle we've seen on the TV editions of the franchise so far. In short, good times all around - and the amount of giddy fan stuff at the end is going to make you scream out for joy. (As long as Hasbro follows the cues of the episode, of course.)

 

Read on for more! I just finished watching this moments ago, so it's not too in-depth. And spoilers follow.
