By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, January 30, 2020

Check out Chewbacca (& C-3PO, The Black Series 6-Inch)! It's a lot more expenisve than buying individual Chewbacca and C-3PO figures, but there are enough changes that may make it worth your while to get this set. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,659: Death Star Gunner (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, January 28, 2020

This super-articulated Death Star Gunner (The Vintage Collection) is based on Rogue One!  It has a blaster and some of the best articulation ever, it's a pity there's no Death Star to put the figures in these days.  Read on!

Q&A: Star Wars Lines Aren't Always Huge, Face Painting, and Random Updates

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, January 26, 2020

This week in Q&A - The True Secret of the Missing Episode 9 Product... is hardly a secret at all. And how many more reissues with new face paint can we expect? Probably a bunch! Also Star Wars: Resistance just ended but we're not going to talk about that this week.

Hey, it's a Klatooinian Raider (The Vintage Collection)!  It's a new head on an old Weequay body, with a new hat and vest. Clever!  It's the pack-in with the really cool AT-ST Raider, an expensive - but absolutely worth it on sale - exclusive at Best Buy.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,657: First Order Stormtrooper (2019 TLJ, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, January 21, 2020

The 2019 First Order Stormtrooper (2019 TLJ, The Black Series 6-Inch)  looks a lot like figures from 2015 and 2018.  It also shares many parts with them, but this one was also available in a white box if that's your jam.  Do you need more?  Is it a great excuse to build an army while only buying one of everything?  Read on!

Q&A: Star Wars Licenses and New Movie Figures

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, January 19, 2020

This week in Q&A - License Renewals! Yes, 2020 is/was the year it was set to expire. And the 3 3/4-inch line may be the force that joins this site's readers together... but well, you know. Nothing last forever without changes here and there.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,656: Heavy Infantry Mandalorian (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, January 18, 2020

We had a brief server outage, which is why we're late posting about this Heavy Infantry Mandalorian (The Black Series 6-Inch)  - which was on the blog as scheduled, so hooray tenacity.  It's a great figure and Best Buy seems to be out for now.  Will you have another crack at it in the future?  Well, I hope so, it's superb. I don't care if you don't like the show, this figure is so cool you old crusty people are going to want one.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,656: Cara Dune (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, January 14, 2020

It's Cara Dune (The Black Series 6-Inch)!  If you watched The Mandalorian, you probably want this figure. It's a good one - there's a knife, and the hole in the boot to store it in is well-hidden and nicely integrated.   Read on!

Q&A: Star Wars On Demand, and Custom Heads or Head Swapping

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, January 12, 2020

This week in Q&A - Generic made-on-demand warriors? Could this be something we ever see in stores? Also head swapping doesn't always work, so don't get your hopes up. And let's take a brief look ahead at 2020!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,654: Offworld Jawa (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, January 9, 2020

The Egg! Is not included with the Offworld Jawa (The Black Series 6-Inch) but it's still a decent figure.  Its popularity will no doubt increase over time as people actually watch The Mandalorian, so go ahead and get one (or six) now before the rest of the world catches on.  Read on!

Target Restocking The Mandalorian Carbonized Graphite Edition

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, January 8, 2020

If you missed it - like I did - Hasbro did another run of the Star Wars The Black Series Carbonized Collection The Mandalorian Toy Figure (Target Exclusive) for US Target stores.   It's $24.99, and I would go as far as to say it looks good enough to  be worth the five bucks.   I saw a few out and about today, so check your local stores - and don't trust the in-store inventory checkers online, go look.  My store said they had none online, and sure enough, there it was.  Good hunting!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,653: Finn (Galaxy of Adventures 5-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, January 7, 2020

Oddly this Finn (Galaxy of Adventures 5-Inch) seems to have already dried up around these parts - as the only Hasbro Finn from The Rise of Skywalker, at least to date, you might want to get one if you stumble on one.  The 5-inch line has been reported as being as low as $3-$5 at various Kroger-owned grocery stores and Walmarts, and they're well worth that price.  Particularly Finn, as it's a nicely-sculpted figure with great articulation and no problems standing.  Read on!

Q&A: Star Wars Vintage Figures and The Rise of Skywalker

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, January 5, 2020

This week in Q&A - New Vintage Reveals... are probably not coming until Toy Fair. You got a lot late last year, most of which you forgot already. And ...more Vintage figures? I guess it's a theme week. The Rise of Skywalker definitely left room wide-open for more characters in that scale.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,652: MSE Droid (The First Order, Galaxy's Edge, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, January 2, 2020

The not-so-new MSE Droid (The First Order, Galaxy's Edge, The Black Series 6-Inch) is amazingly well-decorated, with astonishingly good wear-and-tear paint right on the body.  It has wheels, it's small, and you can get it at Galaxy's Edge in a big expensive pack with another Kylo Ren.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,651: 3PO (Color-Changing Droids, Droid Factory, Galaxy's Edge)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 31, 2019

Check out 3PO (Color-Changing Droids, Droid Factory, Galaxy's Edge)! He goes from black to gold, and uses the build-a-droid molds you've come to love.   A cold black droid turns gold in your hands, and it looks a little muddy if you hold it just right. It's cool.  Read on!
