Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,103: Pyke Soldier (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, January 30, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Pyke Soldier (The Black Series). It's like the stock photo got turned into a toy, with an extra blaster and no special features. It's decent, and meets modern fan expectations for the scale. Read on!

Also, a new Transformers HasLab is live now - and it's over 25% funded in the first hour. There's a decent proposition for what you get, and how big the robots are relative to other toys in the marketplace.

Disney Launches New Star Wars: Ahsoka Droid Action Figure Pack

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, January 29, 2024

It's that time again - and it's been a while! We haven't got a non-holiday droid pack in a while, so theme parks and ShopDisney now have a $49.99 Star Wars: Ahsoka Droid Action Figure Set with Huyang (a different version from Hasbro is also in The Vintage Collection), Chopper (ditto), C4-R4C, and RD-3. Sadly, the little Kenner-domed guy isn't in this one - hopefully he's coming down the road. You can go to the park, or you can click here to get the set for $12.50/per before taxes and shipping.

Q&A: The Best of Star Wars Retro and Playsets by Fans

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, January 28, 2024

This week in Star Wars Q&A - Is Less More - is it time to pick up some Retro guys? Well, in the 1980s we had Star Wars, Masters of the Universe, G.I. Joe, and Transformers lines that you could actually get your hands around. Also I love Kenner so let's say yes.

Be sure you send in your questions, the mail bag is empty. We have no questions for next week's update, which may mean I get a break. Read on!

ICYMI: Hasbro Pulse Has Star Wars The Vintage Collection Boba Fett’s Throne Room In Stock

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, January 26, 2024

I was talking with a friend over email and it came up that nobody was talking about the Star Wars The Vintage Collection Boba Fett’s Throne Room, which came out last September and Hasbro Pulse has in stock right now for $229.99.   I took some pictures of it for our Tumblr as well, outfitting it with various aliens from Return of the Jedi over the last 46 years of toys.

It's a pretty good piece.  I haven't opened up all of the accessories still, mostly because I was less interested in setting up The Book of Boba Fett gear.  Why? Not enough figures.  Hasbro delivered a really excellent multi-purpose playset that can be used with either that show or Return of the Jedi, but as they didn't deliver many of the lesser members of Boba Fett's entourage... why would you want a $230 playset to sit empty?

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,102: R4-X2

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, January 25, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: R4-X2. You might not remember this one - it's from a Disney parks The Last Jedi two-pack and it's pretty awesome in person. It looks like it would fit in nicely with R2-X2, if you have the later green flavor of that one. Also it's long since sold out. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,101: Boba Fett (Dune Sea, The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, January 23, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Boba Fett (Dune Sea, The Retro Collection). Some online shops (like Entertainment Earth) are shipping out this wave but I haven't seen any in stores yet. If you do see them, you should get them - Boba has a good head sculpt, excellent Jawa-esque robes, and two really nice accessories to boot. I went and got my The Vintage Collection Boba Fett's Spaceship (or whatever it's called this week) when I cracked him open and had myself a pretty good time in the cargo hold, but he's too big to fit in the pilot seat.

Hasbro Fanstream for Star Wars - January 23, 2024 Edition

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, January 23, 2024

The live stream is over, finished! Pre-orders begin for these items - or at least most of these items - tomorrow.

The big news and the biggest surprise to me was the Pipeline Reveal of The Retro Collection 6-pack of Revenge of the Sith and Attack of the Clones figures for Shop Disney and Hasbro Pulse. It's at 40:19.   Highlights include Padme (AOTC), Mace Windu, Anakin Skywalker (ROTS), General Grievous, and Jango Fett. Also an Episode III Clone Trooper in plain white.   Hopefully this means regular drops of 6-packs are in the cards for other movies.

Q&A: Star Wars Generation Loss and The New Movie Circular File

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, January 21, 2024

This week in Star Wars Q&A - How full is the movie trashcan? It's hard to count at this point. Also do the kids care about classic Star Wars? Probably. But in LEGO form.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,100: Pre Vizsla (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, January 18, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Pre Vizsla (The Vintage Collection). He is available as a 6-inch figure as well, and for all I know you may find either at a store near you - they're both good, but this one takes up . Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,099: Marrok (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, January 16, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Marrok (The Black Series). He's a knight, sort of, and he's rusty, kind of. But it's a nice looking toy figure. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,098: C1 Droid (Advent Calendar 2022)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, January 11, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: C1 Droid (Advent Calendar 2022). It's another droid, with bright colors, that's Christmas related, but I don't get the gag - but little brown shoes, sure. Green pants, OK. Yellow suspenders, I can't complain. If you like robot toys, it's an interesting one with a fold-out arm in his chest and two more on the head. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,097: Wicket W. Warrick (The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, January 9, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Wicket W. Warrick (The Retro Collection). The nose paint is a little off, and the hood feels very different from the rubbery 1984 original - but it's still cute, small, and last I checked, sold out. Get this set if you can find it at retail price. Read on!

Q&A: Factory Questions and Star Wars Is Too Expensive in 2024?

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, January 7, 2024

This week in Star Wars Q&A - Excitement. Do I need everybody to be as excited as a fan? Well... no. And that's the only question we got, so let's glossy over 2023 really quickly. It was jam-packed with stuff but fans don't seem too excited for it. The solution? Give us less stuff, and time to enjoy it.

Be sure you send in your questions, the mail bag is empty. We have one question for next week's update. Read on!
