Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,945: Imperial Death Trooper (The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 26, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Death Trooper (The Retro Collection). It's a Kenner-style figure borrows a lot from the original Stormtrooper figure from way back in 1978 - the non-articulated helmet and the incorporation of the original blaster come to mind. It's a glossy figure with bright green lenses, so it pops nicely Read on!

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, July 21, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: The Armorer (The Vintage Collection). She came out in 2020, but I didn't get the review done - so let's fix that while you're all distracted with Comic-Con, shall we? Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,943: Ahsoka Tano (The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 19, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Ahsoka Tano (The Retro Collection). It's a Kenner-style with bright colors and is one of very few new aliens in The Retro Collection line. She has two lightsabers that look a lot like the 1980s Luke Skywalker models, except with curved hilts. Read on!

Ad: The Empire Strikes Back-Stlye Kenner Boba Fett and Bossk at Amazon

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, July 14, 2022

From Amazon, this ad: Star Wars Retro Collection Special Bounty Hunters 2-Pack Boba Fett & Bossk Toys 3.75-Inch-Scale The Empire Strikes Back Figures (Amazon Exclusive). It looks like Boba Fett will be nearly the same as his 2020 The Empire Strikes Back reissue from Walmart, while Bossk hasn't been reissued at all yet. Given the current secondary market prices of the Boba Fett reissue, this set is a cheaper alternative at $27.99. It shows Bossk's gun in blue, but I wouldn't be shocked if it shipped in black like we saw with Lando Calrissian.

 

Bossk and Boba Fett are expected in January. IG-88 and Dengar are set for December.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,941: The Mandalorian (Beskar, The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 12, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: The Mandalorian (Beskar, The Retro Collection). It's a Kenner-style figure that adds a cloth cape, but keeps the same blasters as before. It's a good upgrade, but not quite as bright silver as the first one from 2021. Having said that, it's fun and you should probably look him up if you're still on board for Kenner stuff. Read on!

Ad: Amazon Prime Day - Obligatory Sponsored Links

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 12, 2022

Badder, BatchierVia Amazon, here is a sponsored link and I get a few pennies if you buy something: Prime Day Deals. Some neat stuff - 30% off the Mandalorian NERF blaster, 50% off some LEGO and Bad Batch Vintage sets, and a lot of other stuff - but I couldn't find any records. I did find some Imaginext stuff though - there's a nice Batman set.

 

There were some Super7 ReAction discounts, some Funko stuff, a few NECA figures, and some other odds and ends. It's worth a peek. If any exclusive toys are launching for this promotion, I haven't seen them at press time.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,940: See-Threepio (C-3PO, Droids, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, July 7, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: C-3PO (Droids, The Vintage Collection). It's an exclusive and it's got a coin! This figure is much shorter than the 1985 original, but the colors are excellent and he has removable panels... with some gaps you can see through at some angles. Obviously, I like it. Collect all 3!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,939: Bo-Katan Kryze (The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 5, 2022

More fun from the 1980s... by way of 2022! Bo-Katan Kryze (The Retro Collection). It's a Kenner-style figure that is a lot of fun to fuss with. She has brighter colors than her other figures, but the Kenner-esque deco is a mixed bag - the helmet probably has too much fine detail while the breastplate armor is completely unpainted. I still dig it - she fits in great with your old 1970s and 1980s Kenner vehicles and playsets, which tends to be one of the very best reasons to buy these new releases.Obviously, I recommend them all.
