Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,743: Luke Skywalker (Dagobah, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, October 23, 2020

Available in 40th anniversary packaging or in a 2-pack with Yoda, this Luke Skywalker (Dagobah, The Black Series 6-Inch) is a good one.   The articulation is well-integrated, the accessories are well-selected, and the price of the two-pack is, well, high.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,742: R2-Series Astromech Droid (R2-Series silver dome with purple, white body with purple, bartender)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 22, 2020

It's a R2-Series Astromech Droid (R2-Series silver dome with purple, white body with purple, bartender)!  Why? No idea.  This makes four flavors of drink droid, and as far as I know this one has no precedent in the movies, cartoons, comics, or games. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,741: BB-BOO20 (Droid Factory Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, October 21, 2020

While we wait to find out what this year's holiday exclusive is - if there is one - we can look at the other holiday exclusive, BB-BOO20 (Droid Factory Line Look)!  It's a little pumpkin.  It's cute, and you can order it online for around $20 shipped. It's more than the $13 at the theme parks, but you're probably not going to the theme parks. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,740: Admiral Ackbar (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 20, 2020

Admiral Ackbar!  This is the second version of him in the 6-inch range, the first being a sequel-based Toys R Us exclusive that seems to share parts with this one.   I wonder how long Hasbro had this one in the works?  It's cool - but has some weird leg stripe alignment issues and lacks the baton all the older fans wish were there as a nod to Kenner's original.  Read on!

Target's Galaxy's Edge R5-P8 and Commander Pyre 6-Inch Star Wars Black Series Coming This Weekend?

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, October 19, 2020

3867 Today Target.com listed Star Wars The Black Series Commander Pyre and Star Wars The Black Series R5-P8!  Commander Pyre is a rerelease of the figure sold at the theme parks last year (see Commander Pyre, FOTD #2,622) and looks largely the same.  The multi-pack at Disney parks also included a MSE droid.   R5-P8 is a debut - and the 6-inch scale action figures are supposedly hitting stores on Sunday. 

Q&A: Star Wars QC, Playsets, and Lost in Space

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, October 18, 2020

This week in Q&A - Lost in Space! Lost in shipment? More playsets! I don't know of any coming yet. And QC - are vehicles holding up as well as they should?

Be sure you send in your questions for next time. The mailbag is out of on-topic questions, so if you got some, send some in. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,739: Imperial Stormtrooper (The Mandalorian/Rogue One, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, October 16, 2020

Whatever you think he comes from, the design docs make sure Imperial Stormtrooper (The Mandalorian/Rogue One, The Black Series 6-Inch) covers a couple of bases.  It's a new mold! There's.... an unfinished head under the helmet? The articulation is closer to that of a very good 3 3/4-inch figure. And you  will want dozens.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,737: BB-Series Droid (BB-8-style droid, purple body and purple head)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, October 14, 2020

Now there's a droid of a different color! Possibly at Target near you right now, the  Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,737: BB-Series Droid (BB-8-style droid, purple body and purple head) is, more or less, the same as the other droids in his wave - but purple! That's usually reason enough for me to get one.  Read on!

Walgreens Finder - Star Wars: The Black Series Clone Trooper Lieutenant

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, October 14, 2020

3866 Is it accurate? I don't know! But my friend Phil hipped me to the return of the Star Wars The Black Series Phase I Clone Trooper Lieutenant page on Walgreens.com which comes complete with store tracking info.  I was in a store a couple of times over the last week and found one, once - but it was out of stock last night, and says "in stock" now.  Click here to check availability and if it's correct, who knows.

Star Wars Carbonite Blocks Galore Added to Razor Crest HasLab Campaign

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 13, 2020

3865 After passing 11,000 backers, the HasLab Razor Crest Vehicle Campaign added its latest - and I dare say most compelling - stretch goal.  At 13,000, there are four Carbonite Blocks including a Rodian, a pair of human or near-human characters, plus Horation Sanz' Myhtrol character.   Given that in 40 years the only frozen figures we have had are Han Solo and Jar Jar Binks, this is a pretty exciting addition - and I'm hoping they hit the goal! 

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,736: R2-Series Astromech Droid (Red and Silver Markings with Bonus R5 Series White Dome with Red and Silver Markings)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 13, 2020

Two heads and is better than one name!  The nameless R2-Series Astromech Droid (Red and Silver Markings with Bonus R5 Series White Dome with Red and Silver Markings) will be a pain in the neck to get on eBay when there's no name on the box - so go get yours now.  It looks similar to other droids, but with slight changes to detail.  R5's dome lacks the pinstriping, for example.  Read on!
