Star Wars: The Force Awakens Hasbro and Action Figure Exclusive Checklist

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, September 5, 2015

What's out? What's coming? And where should you be hunting? Right now, it's a little murky - but it looks like no exclusives have really hit except the retail release of the SDCC Rancor Pit set at Toys R Us.  A whole smattering of things are coming, and I compiled a list for you.  Found something I haven't?  Let me know!   We'll get it added.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,186: Captain Phasma (Buzzsaw, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, September 5, 2015

While same figure/different weapons are popping up, so far there's only one 3 3/4-inch Captain Phasma.   There's also a 6-inch one - but that's hard to find so far.  She's tall, she's silver, but - surprisingly - only her chest is painted. The limbs and head are molded in a silvery plastic.  Read on!

Disneyland Adds New $30 Star Wars Droid Factory Box Set, Debuts R0 Droid

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, September 4, 2015

Hasbro or not Hasbro?  We're still not 100% sure, but we do know that a new Droid Factory Boxed Set has popped up at theme parks and on eBay.  Reader Michael passed along the details - $29.95 gets you four droids (a real bargain!) including the first-ever R0-4LO and the first action figure of R5-X3 - this was previously sold as a Tomy RC droid and was slated for the axed Legacy Collection.

Also included are R2-Q2 with a different paint job - seriously, new panels and all - plus the first new R4-I9 since 2002.  The box boasts they're from the new movie, but I'm curious to see if this is true.

Six Second Toy Talk: Star Wars The Force Awakens Jungle/Space Captain Phasma Action Figure

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, September 4, 2015

Hey, it's Captain Phasma! Watch this awesome review, or don't. Get your The Force Awakens stuff at Entertainment Earth.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,185: Kylo Ren (Jungle/Claw, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 3, 2015

We still haven't seen everything - but there are many Kylo Ren action figures.  Variant accessories may be a thing now, so keep your peepers peeled.  This one has a bear trap of sorts, but the figure itself has a great sculpt, good deco, and stands up just fine.  It's eight bucks, and you can order it at Entertainment Earth or elsewhere.  Read on!

Amazon - New Stormtrooper Exclusive 6-Inch and 3 3/4-Inch Sets

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 3, 2015

Amazon listed two (so far) new exclusive sets on 9/3.   They are:

Star Wars The Force Awakens 3.75-Inch Figure Troop Builder 6-Pack - actually has 7 figures. Captain Phasma is joined by uniquely armored Stormtroopers and Snowtroopers.  The fact that it is not actually a six pack once again robs me of Black Flag jokes.

Star Wars The Black Series 6-Inch Stormtrooper 4-Pack - This is the rumored "evolution" set. Each figure is unique - Stormtrooper has dirty deco, Episode 7 Stormtrooper has a unique pauldron, the Episode III Clone Trooper debuts in this set, and the AOTC yellow Clone Captain is new.

Walmart Gets More Star Wars Waves of 3 3/4-Inch The Black Series

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 3, 2015

There's always hope!  Walmart has 3 figures up for grabs now and more are coming.  Tonight you can order Luke Skywalker (dirty boot redeco recolor of 2012 Vintage Blu-Ray Jedi Luke), Darth Vader (repack, possible redeco of the 500th Vader mold), and Chewbacca (possible redeco of 2004 Vintage Chewbacca.)  I'm in the middle of a series of large crises so I'll update this with facts (or your comments) as time permits.   As you wait, click below to see the figures at

Upcoming releases include the unreleased Ceremonial Leia, Kylo Ren, and a First Order Stormtrooper.

If you ain't seen it, the Walmart Exclusive Funko Pop! Vinyl Sandtrooper and Dewback may be at a store near you - and if it's like my local Walmart, it's literally the only Star Wars thing on the aisle.   The two-pack is $20.00 which means it's quite the decent deal.  Good hunting!
