Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,757: Todo 360 (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 3, 2020

It's the Seth Green robot!  There was a Detours leak this week (which I seemingly missed) but I didn't miss Todo 360 (The Black Series 6-Inch), a Pulse exclusive after the adventure of 2020's convention season.  But was he worth the $10 upcharge - or the secondary market prices?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,756: Wampa (40th Anniversary, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 1, 2020

Packaged in a nice retro foil box, the Wampa (40th Anniversary, The Black Series 6-Inch) was a PulseCon exclusive that was meant to be an SDCC exclusive.   It's nice! The Wampa drops the blood from the face of the previous release and paints the paw pads to look more like the 1980s Kenner edition.  Read on!

Q&A: Barge Reboxing, Star Wars Sub-Collections, and Rerun Choices

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, November 29, 2020

This week in Q&A - Barge reboxing! It's big. And Sub-collections - just collecting Clones, Droids, or Mandalorians is intensive and expensive work if you weren't following along since day one. And reruns - it's a touchy topic!

Be sure you send in your questions for next time. The mailbag is out of on-topic questions, so if you got some, send some in. Read on!

David Prowse - 1935 - 2020

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, November 28, 2020

David Prowse - best known to our community as Darth Vader in the original Star Wars Trilogy, has passed away. He was 85.  

Mr. Prowse was a pop culture staple, showing up in the BBC The Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy TV show as Hotblack Desiato's bodyguard, plus roles in numerous films like A Clockwork Orange, various Hammer Horror pictures, and more.   You can read more at The Hollywood Reporter and also his Wikipedia page.   Many of us got to see him as part of the "Men Behind the Masks" touring group at conventions in the 1990s, where he signed for fans all over the USA.

Healey Made Naughty & Nice Raiders Up for Sale

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, November 27, 2020

3876

Action Force/G.I. Joe themed Naughty & Nice Raider figures are up at Healey Made's shop now.  While not Star Wars per se, the figures are said to have been sculpted by an old-timer in the toy business and they sure do look like a mishmash of Tarkin/Boba Fett/Cobra Commander.  I have two of the earlier releases and they're fantastic - the bundle is $50 if it's still in stock.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,755: Teebo (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 26, 2020

I know why you're thankful. Ewoks!  Hasbro finally made one in the 6-inch line with Teebo (The Black Series 6-Inch) who shares tooling with Paploo - and we'll look at him next year probably. (Hey, it's a big slate.)   With extra weapons and one of his two hoods, this figure manages to touch on a lot of what made the movie suit and Kenner's old figure great.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,754: Yoda (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 24, 2020

This Yoda (The Black Series 6-Inch) is very tiny and has a bonus second head - also a Luke packaged with it.  You should probably get this 2-pack because Luke has exclusive gear in this pack, which makes the $40 price tag a bit easier to swallow.  Read on!

Target's Carbonized The Mandalorian Returning, Back Up for Pre-Order

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, November 23, 2020

3875 Target.com put up a page for what appears to be a new run of the Star Wars The Black Series Carbonized Collection The Mandalorian Toy Figure due early in 2021.  It's a very good figure - click here to read our review from earlier this year.  It's $5 more expensive than the previous release, but it also is cheaper than purchasing one on the secondary market. This is not the full Beskar mold, but rather the late 2019 version with a very shiny finish.

Q&A: Star Wars Stretch Goals, and Exclusive Things

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, November 22, 2020

This week in Q&A - Stretch goals! Hasbro gave us a lot - but you want more! Elusive exclusives - that's the way it is. Surge overkill - are there just too many exclusives to hunt all at once, too? (Yes.)

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

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,753: General Hux (Celebrate the Saga)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 19, 2020

You're probably ignoring Best Buy's exclusive General Hux (Celebrate the Saga) figure, and that's a shame.  It has one of the very best human likenesses in any of Hasbro's lines, with deco superior to just about anything else at this size.  It's in a boxed set with First Order troopers (and Phasma) too.  Get it while you can.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,752: Clone Trooper (Lieutenant, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 17, 2020

If you are going to Walgreenses, you might be on the lookout for this Clone Trooper (Lieutenant, The Black Series 6-Inch) which uses the sculpt from a few years ago - and not the new 2020 model.  It matches the other troopers you've probably already bought. Read on!

Q&A: Star Wars Rereleases, Delays, and X-Wings

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, November 15, 2020

This week in Q&A - rereleases of older figures - I'm not super hopeful, but hey, let's talk. Delays due to COVID - believe it or not, most things are more or less arriving on time. (Doesn't mean you'll find them, of course.) And more Resistance X-Wings - well, I wouldn't get your hope up here either.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,751: Jabba the Hutt (Barge pack-in, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 12, 2020

It took me forever to open my Sail  Barge, but inside it had Jabba the Hutt (Barge pack-in, The Vintage Collection) - which has mostly excellent paint. The eyes have some weird black lines, but the body and head are amazing with some of the best painted Jabba detail to date.  Not bad for a repaint of a Jabba from The Black Series Rancor Pit sit that you already forgot existed.  Read on!
