Solo: A Star Wars Story 3 3/4-Inch Action FIgure Tease

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, February 14, 2018

3470 Solo: A Star Wars Story wouldn't be a toy line without 3 3/4-inch action figures.   From the photos, these may be Hasbro's finest sculpts and decorations yet - get a gander at the human likenesses.  Ths is a preview of them - more are coming, so there will still be things to reveal between now and... well, I can't divulge that just yet.  At least two figures may be just different enough to make you mad.   Hasbro says:

3471 STAR WARS 3.75-INCH FIGURE Assortment

Enter the world of STAR WARS and launch into action and adventure! Each 3.75-inch figure features five points of articulation and comes with unique battle accessories.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,455: Canto Bight Police (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, February 14, 2018

It's the fuzz!  The Canto Bight Police figure comes with a vehicle that's.... well, it's kind of spare.  The figure looks like something out of 1980, and is generally pretty neat for a generic trooper pilot.  Read on!

Toys R Us Liquidation Begins Today

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, February 7, 2018

The 182 closing Toys R Us stores started their sales today.  The sign out front of mine boasted "Up to 30% Off!"  Another, "Nothing Held Back!" was a little less precise - it's worth noting that most action figures are 10% off but NECA toys were excluded.  Also excluded: select video games and books.

Another Star Wars Film Series Announced

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, February 6, 2018

Add another one to the list! StarWars.com posted Game of Thrones Creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss to Write and Produce a New Series of Star Wars Films.  The two TV creators are set to work on a new strain of story separate from the side-story films, Rian Johnson's trilogy, and most likely the original numbered saga.   More here.   No dates or specifics were given, but for those keeping track at home this means Lucasfilm has somewhere around 7 - if not more - feature-length movies between today and the indefinite future.
