Kohl's Star Wars: The Last Jedi Gift Set In Stock Online

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 24, 2017

The excessively named Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi 4-pk. Luke Skywalker (Jedi Master), Rey (Jedi Training), First Order Stormtrooper Officer & Resistance Tech Rose Figure Set by Hasbro is in stock on Kohl's web site.   The only actual exclusive in the set is the Stormtrooper, which may be a mix of parts already on the market - I haven't had the chance to examine it up close yet.  Retail is $49.99, but a 20% off coupon gets it down to about $35.99.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,419: Captain Phasma (6-Inch Value Figure, The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, October 23, 2017

While C-3PO would fill in on your The Black Series shelves nicely, the value version of Captain Phasma might not.  She's about a head shorter, but as a standalone figure she's pretty cool for the asking price.   Phasma has a cape and a blaster, based on her The Force Awakens look - so no new spear here.   Read on!

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, October 22, 2017

This week in Q&A - Diminishing Returns! Do we need to better be exploited? Let's look at some lost toys - or at least, lost ideas on a whiteboard. And Vintage - and, I might add, arguably the most valid question we've had on the topic lately.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,418: C-3PO (6-Inch Value Figure, The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, October 18, 2017

If you like the cheap 6-inch figures, this C-3PO is one of the best.  It fits right in with your The Black Series figures, and its cheap, and hte paint is good.   It can't sit, but it's not like all of the joints of The Black Series ones added a ton to the overall experience.  Read on!

Check out Walmart's exclusive 3 3/4-inch Resistance Tech Rose (The Black Series, The Last Jedi).  I haven't seen them in a store for about a month, but it's a nifty take on a character we'll get to meet in December.  Read on!

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, October 15, 2017

This week in Q&A - Vehicles The Best! What are the best candidates for your money from The Last Jedi? Let's outfit your Imperial Troop Transporter - sure you dumped on it at the time, but it's gorgeous and now you need helmets.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,416: Luke Skywalker (Jedi Master, The Black Series, The Last Jedi)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, October 11, 2017

If you were lucky, you also found Luke Skywalker (Jedi Master, The Black Series) 3 3/4-inch figure during the Force Friday II weekend memorial toy launch and BBQ at a Walmart near you... and it probably didn't ring up, either.   Well, they're in circulation and it's a pretty good figure - it has articulation and a cloth cloak, while the cheaper, more findable one has less articulation and a really good plastic cloak.  Which should you buy?  Both, but read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,415: Rey (2-Pack, The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, October 9, 2017

Newish from The Last Jedi, this Rey (2-Pack) figure is a little different than the single one - the sculpt is a little different, the legs have a different range of motion, and the faces are a little different.  Also she has a Millennium Falcon-inspired backpack cannon, so go ahead and get both.  This one is made in Vietnam, the single one is from China.  Read on!

NYCC 2017 - The Return of Star Wars Mighty Muggs

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, October 6, 2017

3433 They're back!  Before Funko launched Pop! Vinyl, Hasbro captured lightning in a bottle with Mighty Muggs about a decade ago.   We got Star Wars, Transformers, G.I. Joe, Marvel, and Indiana Jones as just a few of the $10 chunky figures.  Collectors and kids loved them, but Hasbro didn't want to farm the line out to more licenses, or keep it going, and just let it lapse.  This is when Funko released Funko Force 2.0, which were renamed Pop! Vinyl figures and changed the toy world - the greatest toy trend was in Hasbro's hands, and by letting it languish, someone else one-upped them.  But they're back!   And they brought a cool action feature this time!

NYCC 2017 - Hasbro Star Wars The Black Series 6-Inch Action Figure Reveals

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, October 6, 2017

3428 The big figures are in this season, so we're happy to see new guys and more importantly, new old guys.    There are new movie characters, there are original trilogy characters, and one of my absolute favorites is getting a big upsizing!    In today's reveals, you'll find 5 new 6-inch action figures which could be in your hands over the next year.

NYCC 2017 - Hasbro Star Wars 3 3/4-Inch Action Figure Reveals

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, October 6, 2017

3423 New stuff!  While some of it may not look new - a revised Asty is appreciated, but we've got Asty - there are some other new things here to enjoy.   Asty appears to have a removable helmet and a blaster, but you've got Asty.   Probably.

3424 Also returning is Maz Kanata with a snazzy jetpack.  Previously exclusive to a 4-pack, this slightly modified figure gives you another crack at the character with some new gear.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,414: Elite Praetorian Guard (2-Pack, The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, October 4, 2017

Take a look at the Elite Praetorian Guard (2-Pack, The Last Jedi Line Look) with its bonnet.  Ofsnoke has a cool bladed weapon and a faceless mask, and is one of (so far) three different 3 3/4-inch guards on the market.   Should you get it?  Of course.  Read on!
