Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,054: Princess Leia Slave Outfit (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, November 11, 2013

Let's finish up the second wave of The Black Series with Princess Leia (Slave Outfit), a 6-inch figure that asks the question "so when do we get Jabba?"   She's short, but so is Carrie Fisher.  Is this truly the best Hasbro can do, or just their first attempt?  Read on!

Q&A: Displays, Rex, The New Figures, and Tales from the Road

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, November 10, 2013

It's Monday Q&A time! It's shorter, I've been on a lot of planes lately in between collecting Miis in airports. Let's talk about making your purchases count - do you matter? The answer may surprise you! Not really, but let's also talk about Captain Rex figures you don't have yet. And the big leak of 2013, which has nothing to do with what I had to do after getting off one of the aforementioned planes. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,053: Boba Fett (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, November 9, 2013

As of yesterday, I finally saw Boba Fett from The Black Series and all of his casemates in a Target store! Good hunting - but before you go hunt read Figure of the Day to see the new figure.  You may have read the SDCC review a few months ago, and the figure is basically the same - read on! 

Hasbro's Star Wars The Vintage Collection Slave I Back on Amazon

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, November 8, 2013

Many of you  have written in lamenting the vanishing Boba Fett's Slave I Vintage jumbo vehicle on Amazon on and off over the last week and change.  As of right now it's in stock for $69.99, so if you were waiting go ahead and grab it.  And the Droid Factory set.   And the TIE Interceptor.  And maybe some Black Series figures.  For the first time in months, there are actually new things to buy!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,052: Greedo (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 7, 2013

I just got off of yet another plane so let's look at Greedo, the Black Series sensation that's sweeping the nation.  If you pre-ordered the set online, you'd have it by now.  It's pretty great - not as robust as Han Solo but clearly a lot of work went into this.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,051: Han Solo (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, November 6, 2013

So kids, let's upgrade to the 6-inch Han Solo, which  has alternate belts and alternate hands.  You'll probably spend at least an hour just futzing with him once you open one - it's quite good and fun to mess with.  You get two guns, too.  Could you ask for more?  Yes.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,050: Clone Commander Ponds (Battle of Geonosis: Jedi Knights)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 5, 2013

For some reason, it's Clone Commander Ponds!  A redecorated version of the once-nameless Clone Trooper Officer figure has retconned Mr. Ponds to the Battle of Geonosis. The yellow is a little different, and he has different accessories than previous yellow clones based on the 2003 Clone Wars movie-style mold... but should you buy it?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,049: Roan Shryne (Battle of Geonosis: Jedi Knights)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, November 4, 2013

Was he in the movie?  Well, he was in a few novels, so Hasbro managed to sneak out Roan Shryne as an action figure in the just-released Toys R Us exclusive Gunship packs.  You'll probably want to snag it if you're a book fan, and if not, well, it's still movie-ish enough for my liking.   Read on!

Q&A: Biggs, Rancho Obi-Wan, Vehicles, and Other Stuff Because Why Not

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, November 3, 2013

So which Biggs is best? Sure, let's look. And did you drag your feet on the Amazon Slave I vehicle? If so... why??? Finally, let's talk about Rebels because I don't have anything to share and we have space to fill. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,048: Sarissa Jeng (Battle of Geonosis: Jedi Knights)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, November 1, 2013

Lady Jedi toys are uncommon, so Sarissa Jeng is pretty exciting to see.  Her legs are recycled, but the rest of her seems new despite being similar to Ki-Adi-Mundi.  The actress in stills looks quite cute - how is the figure?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,047: Sephjet Josall (Battle of Geonosis: Jedi Knights)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 31, 2013

I assume people must really love Sephjet Josall, because I saw someone swap out the figure for a Qui-Gon at a Toys R Us this afternoon.  (May an elephant sit upon your house.)   Based on a background extra in Attack of the Clones, this is a Luke figure with a new "skirt" and a new head - and it works! Nicely done.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,046: Pablo-Jill (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, October 30, 2013

Now here's one you'll like.  Pablo-Jill was released a few years ago with an excellent statue of a figure - gorgeous - but this new one is way more articulated, with the best wrists I've seen on any Jedi figure to date.  Actual ball-and-socket wrists make this completely articulated figure streets ahead of the competition, easily making it the best prequel Jedi of the season.  Read on!
