Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,137: Stormtrooper (Epic Hero Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, May 28, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Stormtrooper (Epic Hero Series). It looks sort of like a 1990s POTF2 figure, but with slightly less bulky proportions. The head is small, the blaster is huge, and it's actually quite charming. I'd like more of them. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,136: LOM-Series Protocol Droid (Black, Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, May 23, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: LOM-Series Protocol Droid (Black, Droid Factory). It's a bin build-a-figure so you may never see it again, but hey, it's neat and the kind of droid thing you'd probably be happy to see in a store if such things were possible in 2024. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,135: Obi-Wan Kenobi (The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, May 21, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Obi-Wan Kenobi (The Retro Collection). While a retro figure, this one also seems to have trace amounts of modern figures - he looks like some of the 5-jointed figures from about 12-13 years ago, but does some unique things like sculpts the Padawan braid as a part of his shoulder. He's in that six pack that seems to be available still at a Target near you, or across town, as they seem to be selling just fine around here. Read on!

Q&A: Star Wars Retro Game Runner and HasLab Tiers in Rain

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, May 19, 2024

This week in Star Wars Q&A - Tiers in Rain - would Hasbro do a two-tiered HasLab? Would you believe they already did one? Also retro Star Wars games so obscure even I don't know about them. Do you?

Also, we're out of questions for next week. But we do have ramblings on a figure format from 2023 that I - and I assume you - skipped.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,134: Battle Droid (The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, May 16, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Battle Droid (The Retro Collection). This one's a little weird - the sculpt looks similar to the 1999 figures, but the backpack took design cues from Boba Fett. It's melting into the back, and while it looks weird I do enjoy the design decision as it's based on an actual Kenner product. Also the Battle Droid has a far more interesting pose than most Retro figures, with a bent elbow that gives him a lot of personality. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,133: Queen Amidala (The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, May 14, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Queen Amidala (The Retro Collection). She's in that six pack at Target you may find now, and has a lot of very 1980s details like the wavy fabric pattern on her leg interiors as well as the Leia-ish poses of her hands. She also has some thing no original figure had, like the extended collar element and her long hair. Overall, it's a pretty great figure. Read on!

ShopDisney Star Wars Pride Collection Droid Goodies for 2024

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, May 13, 2024

ShopDisney posted a couple of Pride products, and they're really cool. The R3-RN8W Droid Factory Figure – Star Wars Pride Collection may well be the best figure they've done so far - maybe R2-RNBW is better, I don't know, I haven't been able to get one after a few years - with a clear dome, black body, and tons of color. It's great.

Also new is a R2-D2 Slider Pin – Star Wars Pride Collection – Limited Release, which has a moving droid part on it.

Q&A: Star Wars Triple Header with HasLab, Case Packs, and How's It Gonna End?

This week in Star Wars Q&A - The End! Are we there yet? Also Case Packs vs. Character Diversity - well, there are limits. Also HasBlab because you may have seen a leak.

Also, we're out of questions for next week. (We got one, we had two, but timeliness required I bump it up to this week.)

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,132: Qui-Gon Jinn (The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, May 9, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Qui-Gon Jinn (The Retro Collection). As part of the new Episode I retro 6-pack, this is a pretty nice figure - the lightsaber and fabric cloak are great accessories, while the figure has a nice head sculpt that looks like it would fit in with a lot of the originals. The hair would've broken right off the head were it made in the 1980s probably, so just be happy that this one was made in modern times. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,131: Jar Jar Binks (The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, May 7, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Jar Jar Binks (The Retro Collection). I have been seeing a steady trickle of this figure at Target, where it's an exclusive closed-box six pack with six individually carded figures inside. This is one of the better ones - his hands are more modernized than most retro figures, but he's still pretty charming and fits in more Mini-Rigs than I anticipated. Read on!
