Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,550: Quay Tolsite (Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, January 10, 2019

I'm pretty jazzed to see Hasbro slid a Quay Tolsite in before the Force Link line called it a day - assuming, of course, that it's probably over now.  He's basically a statue with arms, but they did a good job with him.  He has jointed arms without a bunch of range, jointed legs with a big robe over them, and a lot of sculpted detail.  Hasbro didn't take shortcuts on this one.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,549: Rio Durant (Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, January 8, 2019

Rio Durant is a gem - this 3 3/4-inch figure is the kind of thing you wish Hasbro did more often.  This short space monkey has four arms, a blaster, and a pretty good-for-a-soundalike Force Link 2.0 chip.  Get one if you can find one. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,548: Dengar (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, January 3, 2019

Another of last year's highlights, the Dengar (The Black Series 6-Inch) figure is awesome!  You should have ran out to get one, or ordered online, because Dengar is great.  He has a removable backpack, a cool blaster, and amazing detail with a separate rubbery headwrap on his head.  Who knew Dengar could be so good?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,547: Han Solo (Mimban, Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, January 1, 2019

This Han Solo (Mimban) is in a gift set, or sold individually - you should be able to get one rather easily.  It has a removable bask, moving goggles, a blaster, and a cape.  It's a Mudtrooper of the finest order, so I would get one if I were you.  Heck, I got two.  Read on!

Kmart, Sears Closing 80 More Stores

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, December 28, 2018

There are precious few Kmart and Sears stores near me left open, and another list of 80 closing stores can be found at The USA Today.  Sears was a catalog titan, and Kmart was one of the first really successful big box-style stores - and after this round of closures, they will be down to significantly under 500 between them. I would ask if your store is on the list, but odds are there aren't many left near you.

Star Wars Review: Lando Calrissian (Skiff Guard, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 27, 2018

We looked at one of the worst figures of the year the other week, so now let's look at one of Hasbro's very best.  The Lando Calrissian (Skiff Guard, The Black Series 6-Inch) brings one of my favorite costumes on one of my favorite characters, and on top of that they did a phenomenal job. The face sculpting is good, but the paint! Oh!  They did a nice job giving him a feel that's a lot closer to Billy Dee Williams than ever before.  With the Donald Glover version also turning out well, and the buzz that we'll see Lando return again next year, it's a good season for Lando merch.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,545: R4-H18 (Droid Factory Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 25, 2018

The Disney takeover has resulted in more Hasbro-compatible toys at theme parks, like this year's ice sculpture-inspired Christmas robot R4-H18 (Droid Factory Line Look).   It's a typical R4 unit cast in a clear white plastic, frosty with silver highlights and decorated with festive and removable drinks.  It can't make use of the third leg and the drink tray at the same time, but that's how these things go.  Read on!

Q&A: Star Wars Starships and Displaying The Really Big Stuff

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, December 23, 2018

This week in Q&A - Displaying the Sail Barge. It's a little early, but it's certainly a problem on my mind right now. Also hunting stuff - and that's about it, since we're light on questions. I assume you're having an office Christmas party, are avoiding your family, or are in line screaming because someone forgot to get a can of those fried onion things and now you're behind someone with 27 items and you've just got this one thing, and they're paying by check, and have no humanity. What can you do? What, pray tell, can you do?

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,544: Jawa (Droid Factory Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 20, 2018

Is this the worst action figure of 2018? Yes. The Disney Sandcrawler pack-in Jawa (Droid Factory Line Look) is clearly cobbled together from Hasbro parts someone cast and didn't resculpt over the joints.  It's crude, and if you told me it was a bootleg I'd believe you.  At least the droid is OK and the Sandcrawler is nice.
