Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,536: Stormtrooper (Mimban, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 22, 2018

Happy Thanksgiving! I'm thankful I found this Stormtrooper (Mimban, The Black Series 6-Inch)  without much of a fight - it's a redeco of the 2013 Stormtrooper with a new head and a cape, but that's good enough for me.  Worth it if you can find one.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,535: Imperial Patrol Trooper (Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 20, 2018

Newish! This Imperial Patrol Trooper is at Target in a really cool boxed set right now, and it's been on sale for a few bucks off.  There are no known plans for a matching bike as of yet, but at least you can get the trooper before they go out of style.  Read on!

Disney's Giant Sandcrawler Now on ShopDisney.com

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, November 16, 2018

Disney theme parks have been selling an extra large $100 Sandcrawler, and now it's on ShopDisney.com.   It's been popping on and off the web site, but it's there now.   Check site for special offers, like free shipping.   It's compatible with 3 3/4-inch Hasbro figures, and looks like it has two figures loosely copied from previous  Hasbro designs.  (Mine isn't here yet.)

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,534: General Veers (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 15, 2018

Walgreens' General Veers (The Black Series 6-Inch)  is in stores now, provided you go to more than one of them.   Maybe you'll get lucky - it's a good figure!  Veers has extra parts to switch between his Star Destroyer look with cap and his helmeted, armored AT-AT commander look.  You've got options, and the face looks pretty amazing.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,533: Stormtrooper Squad Leader (Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 13, 2018

Today's 3 3/4-inch Stormtrooper Squad Leader is at a Target near you now, and probably marked down a few bucks.  It has a wonderful sculpt and sharp detailing, making it a great army builder if Hasbro ever decides to release it solo.  (See what I did there?) Anyway, get one. Read on!

Q&A: Star Wars Vintage, Newness, and Classics that Are New but Not Too New

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, November 11, 2018

This week in Q&A - Is it new? Yes! But is it new enough? Heck if I know. The future of new classics - might we see more from Disney-era movies even though they're now "classic?" And Vintage - let's speculate wildly.

Be sure you send in your questions for next week. Read on!

Sears, Kmart Closing More Stores

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, November 9, 2018

The retail apocalypse continues with more Sears and Kmarts closing.  40 stores are closing between now and February, including one of very few remaining stores in my neck of the woods.  If you have a certain kind of socks or pants you want, you better get them now if you still have a store near you.

Disney+ Streaming Series #2: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story: A Star Wars Story

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 8, 2018

We now have a name for Disney's streaming platform - Disney+ - and a premise for the second live-actions treaming show.  According to StarWars.com, Cassian Andor Live-Action Series Announced.  The good news is we might get some more Diego Luna figures - and maybe someone will want the ones they passed on last time.  And maybe we'll get fancy, improved face paint.  But also we're going to get a new series, the scope of which is not entirely known yet.   If it means more Captain Andor and some Imperials, it'll probably be tons of fun.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,532: Stormtrooper (Mimban, a.k.a. Mudtrooper, Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 8, 2018

It's basically Han Solo with the mask glued on.  This Stormtrooper (Mimban) is in that 6 figure boxed set at Target, and it's a good collection for fans of the side stories and the Empire.   Even though you skipped the movie, I suspect you'll like the various troopers at the price.  (And it's on sale this week.)   Is it worth it?  Read on!

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 1, 2018

From Wave 3 of Force Link 2.0, this Darth Vader (Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)  is a new mold. I was surprised too - they incorporated some details, like the silver cheek, that we don't normally get at this size of original Darth Vader toys.  Read on!
