Q&A: Jurassic World, Star Wars Distribution, and Exclusives

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, October 21, 2018

This week in Q&A - Jurassic World! Does its success mean there is a world of 3 3/4-inch human-based figure nostalgia coming from other lines? Of course not. Distribution... I guess it's been a few months, sure. Let's go there again.  Exclusives - what's the hold-up for the new stuff?

Be sure you send in your questions for next week. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,526: Hera Syndulla (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 18, 2018

Hasbro continues its stretched-out series of Rebels with last year's Hera Syndulla (The Black Series 6-Inch)!   She has top-notch detailing, has articulation on par with the rest of the line, and has left retail because she's from last year.   Well, she's still worth tracking down if you can find one - Chopper and Ezra will join the crew of Ahsoka and Kanan in the coming months.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,525: R2-X2 (Red Squadron, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 16, 2018

It's not exactly on model, but R2-X2 (Red Squadron, The Black Series 6-Inch)  has some admirable parts.  It's big - and that's cool! The dirt is awesome! But the dome is the wrong color, as far as can be told when comparing it to previous releases in other sizes and formats.   Read on!

Q&A: TIEs, Action Fleet, and Star Wars Ships

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, October 14, 2018

This week in Q&A - Ships happen - is Disney's Sandcrawler direction one to follow? Action Fleet - 15 years on, is it time for a comeback? KB Toys and TIEs - these are also on the docket.

Be sure you send in your questions for next week. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,524: R2-D2 (Red Squadron, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 11, 2018

Amazon's R2-D2 (Red Squadron, The Black Series 6-Inch) is pretty good - but it lacks most of the cool extra gear from the clean, single releases.  It's still pretty cool and filthy, though.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,523: Qi'ra (Corellia, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 9, 2018

This Qi'ra (Corellia, The Black Series 6-Inch) may or may not be in a store near you - Han is around, but she seems to disappear.  It's a great figure with excellent sculpted detail and a pretty good portrait, so if you finally got off your butt and saw the movie maybe you're in the mood to buy some action figures now.   Read on!

Q&A: Star Wars Overseas, Costs, and Exclusives

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, October 7, 2018

This week in Q&A - Costs! They're going up, but they have always been weird. Foreign Figures. You missed a few! Confirmed exclusives - always in motion, is the future.

Be sure you send in your questions for next week. Read on!

NYCC 2018: Star Wars The Black Series Marvel Action Figures for 2019

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, October 7, 2018

3672 After debuting as 3 3/4-inch figures, Hasbro now has 6-inch versions for you on the horizon!  Doctor Aphra will be jointed by 0-0-0 and BT-1 in summer 2019. That's a long ways off, but at least we know they're coming.  

For the uninitiated, these characters are found in the pages of Marvel's Darth Vader and Doctor Aphra comic books.

Clear some space and check out these new photos!

NYCC 2018: Star Wars The Black Series Exclusive Action Figures for 2019

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, October 7, 2018

3668 In 2019, Target will get a new version of Luke Skywalker in Stormtrooper Disguise - note the slicked-back hair.   Slickback emeritus come complete with helmet, communicator, blaster, and what may well be some sort of sewage deco.  Delicious.

Joining him is GameStop's Rocket Trooper, which you probably also don't recognize.  The classic Stormtrooper body got a new helmet and a few other modifications for its release next year.

NYCC 2018: Star Wars The Vintage Collection Continues with Luke, Imperial Drivers

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, October 7, 2018

3665 One of the most requested figures from The Last Jedi is coming to 3 3/4-inch action figures!  Luke Skywalker (Crait) is his astral-projected form, mixing in various elements to a fraudulent, younger warrior.  He's joined by the Rogue One Imperial Assault Tank Commander, so at least we've got some freshness coming in Summer of 2019.

NYCC 2018: Star Wars Resistance Hasbro Action Figures

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 4, 2018

3654 From the new TV show that isn't The Mandalorian and you don't seem interested in watching are some really cool-looking animated action figures.  Star Wars Resistance has a slate of new releases, and we're going to post them here now.

The younger characters with more colorful designs seem like we're absolutely nearing the "little brother phase" of franchises that go along and get handed down, looking for new audiences - but that doesn't mean they aren't nifty to look at, especially from The First Order side of things.   Here's hoping  Hasbro doesn't skimp on the vehicles for the show, which debuts next week.

(You weren't paying attention for that, were you?)

NYCC 2018: The Black Series 6-Inch Action Figures

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 4, 2018

3651 Hasbro didn't have a lot new to reveal at New York Comic Con so far, but we got a few new shots of things you might have missed.  A deluxe General Grievous will join an utterly stunning Walgreens Exclusive Obi-Wan Kenobi from Clone Wars, 2003-style.  (Nicely done, Steve, I'm jealous.)  Both are 2019 items - expect Grievous in the first half and Kenobi late in 2019.

NYCC 2018: The Vintage Collection, New Star Wars from Hasbro

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 4, 2018

3646 Hasbro revealed packaged samples of four new-to-the-series figures.  Saelt-Marae (nee Yak Face) showed up on a Return of the Jedi-style cardback along with Klaatu (Skiff Guard), Princess Leia Organa (Boushh Disguise), and a Rogue One Scarif Stormtrooper. They're nice.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,522: Clone Commander Wolffe (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 4, 2018

Check out Clone Commander Wolffe, a shared exclusive that started showing up over the summer. You might see it at Barnes & Noble, GameStop, or Disney Stores - or not, if it sold.  The new head looks great.  Read on!
