Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,931: R2-W50 (Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, June 7, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: R2-W50 (Droid Factory). It's a figure painted to look sort of like the repaint of a castle at a theme park, except the droid is clear for some reason. It's a bizarre but distinctive looking figure, and arguably the kind of thing that's more interesting as a weird collectible toy than something from the Star Wars galaxy. Read on!

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, June 2, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: K-7R1 (Droid Depot set, The Black Series). It's a repaint of K-2SO, from a theme park, at which it appears as a junk robot. It looks cool, at least. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,929: Anakin Skywalker (Outlander Peasant Disguise 2021 Redux, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, May 31, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Anakin Skywalker (Outlander Peasant Disguise 2021 Redux, The Vintage Collection). Time is not always kind to reissues - he came up a little short back in 2011, and by today's standards doesn't look great. The poncho is much worse, the figure deco is slightly better, and the sculpting is still as good as it ever was. It's not an essential upgrade, but there are a few improvements that may interest you (as long as you keep the original 2011 poncho handy.) Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,928: Obi-Wan Kenobi (2022 Redux, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, May 26, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Obi-Wan Kenobi (2022 Redux, The Vintage Collection). It's a repaint of a fairly old figure, and it arguably looks a little better - but, again, it is a figure from 2011. The belt has a place to hang his communicator and his lightsaber is cool, but should you track one down online? Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,927: Ahsoka Tano (Corvus, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, May 24, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Ahsoka Tano (Corvus, The Vintage Collection). She's awesome! This is the mass-retail release, Walmart has an exclusive version. This figure has one of Hasbro's very best head sculpts, with amazing paint and tip-top articulation. Even if you're not an Ahsoka fan (and you should be one), I'd suggest getting this figure (or playing with a friend's) to see just how far Hasbro has come in making these figures truly amazing in recent waves.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,926: Death Watch Mandalorian (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, May 19, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Death Watch Mandalorian (The Vintage Collection). It's a new sculpt and one of Habsro's very best. The range of motion is great, the center of gravity is good, and the joints move pretty freely so you won't feel "stuck" in a weird position. You'll love it. Buy an army. Read on!

Vanity Fair Spills the Beans for 2023

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, May 17, 2022

Red CogVia Vanity Fair: Star Wars: The Rebellion Will Be Televised.. This wide-ranging feature not only touches on this year's Star Wars streaming series, but also has some fascinating tidbits and non-answers about upcoming movies. For instance, don't expect Rogue Squadron for holiday 2023. Nor that Rian Johnson series any time soon.

 

There are plenty of perfectly nice photos, but the copy is packed with newsworthy gems about how trilogies are unlikely and more interconnected stories are pretty much guaranteed.  There are tidbits on the Andor show and lots of other odds and ends, but nothing particularly spoiler-worthy.  Also there are no release dates or targets for when you can expect to see another movie in theaters.
