By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, August 6, 2017

This week in Q&A - Return of Star Wars Vintage Packaging! I'm not as excited as I should be and I'm all kinds of not optimistic for its long-term health. More Vintage! Yeah. And what's good in the line?

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,392: Imperial Royal Guard (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, August 2, 2017

Today: let's look at the not-common-enough Imperial Royal Guard (The Black Series) 6-inch action figure!  It's really cool - and the helmet isn't removable.  You do get armor under the robes, so custom Kir Kanos figures can't be far behind.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,391: R2-C2 (Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, July 31, 2017

Check out the R2-C2 (Droid Factory)! Disney's take on Ziro's droid has different glasses, a different drink spigot, and uses that build-a-droid mold.   Hasbro has one too as an Entertainment Earth Exclusive, and I'd say just get both - Ziro probably needs a lot of drinks.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,389: R5-S9 (Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, July 24, 2017

Take a look at R5-S9 (Droid Factory), it's blue! The colors don't match the show perfectly, but it's also not an animated figure.  You can find this The Clone Wars-inspired robot at Disney theme parks in a 4-pack, and of course we're going to look at them all.  Read on!

SDCC - Reveals Continue with The Last Jedi Star Wars Figures

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 18, 2017

If you recall last year, Hasbro didn't announce its Jyn Erso exclusive until San Diego Comic-Con-goers were already on the ground.  This year, we may (because it wasn't officially announced yet) be seeing this Star Wars: The Black Series Jedi Master Luke Skywalker and Jedi In Training Rey 2-pack as seen on the Jedi Insider today.   It hasn't been officially announced at all, but it does look a lot like official Hasbro photography.  More as we have it!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,387: See-Threepio (C-3PO, Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, July 17, 2017

Today: Disney's See-Threepio (C-3PO, Droid Factory) from the 2-pack!  It's not bad - it's a little fake filthy, too.  Is this the super-articulated C-3PO you've been waiting for?  Read on!

Q&A: Star Wars Big Vehicles, Coin Cards, and Fan's Choice

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, July 16, 2017

This week in Q&A - The AT-ACT! You probably didn't buy it - but what was up with the most expensive action figure vehicle for Star Wars ever made?

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,385: C1-10P "Chopper" (Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, July 10, 2017

A few months ago, Disney surprised us by releasing C1-10P "Chopper" - with tons of extra parts and articulation.  It's a The Vintage Collection figure in all but name and packaging!  The arm pops out. You can pop more arms in to his dome.  You can change out third legs... he has third legs.   It's great, get oneRead on!
