Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,001: Axe Woves (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, February 7, 2023

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Axe Woves (The Black Series). It's a good one! An existing body was used with a different head and some different color configurations to deliver unto you another Mandalorian for your armies. Read on!

Amazon Has Cheap Star Wars: The Retro Collection Action Figures

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, February 6, 2023

While peeking around on Amazon I saw a bunch of The Retro Collection figures for around $5-$8 - and I'd pretty much recommend them all at under $8.  Boba Fett (Morak) is spectacular, but the super cheap $4.99 Fifth Brother Inquisitor is probably the best-engineered figure from Obi-Wan Kenobi.  It'll make you old Kenner kids happy. And yes, these are affiliate links, it is possible we may get a few pennies if you click and buy something from Amazon.

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, February 5, 2023

This week in Q&A - A tax upon them! Is it just Boba Fett? Also pre-orders - it's really hard to set run sizes.

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

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, February 4, 2023

If you like indie toys - and dagnabbit, I'm trying to make you like them - you'll want to see the new Healey Made Raider (Bulloch) action figure. Made with Kennery goodness in mind, this not-quite-Tarkin/Boba Fett/Cobra Commander figure is $25.00 and will probably be sold out at some point in the middle of the week.

For those keeping track, this is the whopping 36th colorway of this figure since its debut in 2019.

Stan Solo's Glowing Force Ghosts In Stock in the USA

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, February 3, 2023

Fan production house Stan Solo Creation's Etsy Shop put up a lot of new stuff recently, including the Stan Solo Glow in the Dark Force Ghosts set.

I picked up a few Stan Solo figures and the quality is generally really good. The sculpting cuts are deep and the accessories look like the real deal, but are just off enough to tell they're reproductions.

New Healey Made Raider Saturday

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, February 2, 2023

RaidVia the Glyos News Dump: New Healey Made Raider Saturday, February 4.  The Raiders are pretty fantastic figures and have come in dozens of colorways so far. They're not cheap, but they're about as close as you can get to a new old Kenner-style action figure... and I include Hasbro's own Kenner-style figures in the mix. These are generally, in terms of sculpt, closer to the original (old) article.

I really like these guys. Click here for a review of the Shadow Raider and click here for a look at the Revenge Raider.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,000: Aayla Secura (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, February 2, 2023

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Aayla Secura (The Black Series). In the not-too-distant future, right now A.D., there as a guy named Adam not too different from you or me. And you should really just relax for Figure of the Day #3,000 - which is a milestone for what kicked off as a filler feature with diminishing returns. Thankfully, the figure is excellent and Hasbro did a great job with her. It's strange that she has pre-2020-style knees, but one of last year's finer figures is a keeper. Read on!

Hasbro Fanstream Reveals New Star Wars: The Retro Collection... And Other Stuff

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, February 1, 2023

Hasbro posted its latest Star Wars Fanstream Wednesday morning. There's a lot to take in, and I have a checklist of all the new names for pipeline reveals and actual reveals (and the embedded video) after the jump. So if you want The Black Series and The Vintage Collection, read more. But the most important thing are the Kenner-style The Retro Collection figures! A new The Book of Boba Fett wave was revealed in name only, and it looks like one heck of a wave.

Target will get another "Prototype" figure, this time it's The Mandalorian (the vinyl cape one) - but what makes it interesting is "Kenner blue" accessories. That's a selling point. The new wave of new characters includes Boba Fett (Desert/Nomad), Mando (new), Grogu (new), Luke Skywalker (Jedi, "refresh"), Fennec Shand, Cad Bane, Krrsantan, and a Tusken Raider. That's eight new or newish figures, and no droids, but at least we get some aliens that might be fun.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,999: Grogu (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, January 31, 2023

Well, they can't all feel like a great deal: Grogu (The Black Series). It's the accessories from the somewhat more-expensive-than-he-should-be $10 figure with a floating egg for $25. He's guaranteed to sell, the paint is fine, he's cute, but you might cringe and grit your teeth when you see him next to other $25 figures. You might cringe and grit your teeth when you see him next to $10 figures, because there's no level of "pretty good" that makes up for "this would be puny if it were a 3 3/4-inch release and it's a 6-inch release."

Q&A: A Crisis of Star Wars Scale, High Pricing Is the New Distribution Problem

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, January 29, 2023

This week in Q&A - A tax upon them! Is it just Boba Fett? Also a spectrum of infinite scales - why are so many action figures too big, or too small, to be compatible?

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

Retro Figure, Retro Pricing - $5.49 Boba Fett at Amazon

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, January 27, 2023

If we cannot be free, at least we can be cheap. Amazon has Star Wars Retro Collection Boba Fett (Morak) Toy 3.75-Inch-Scale The Mandalorian Collectible Action Figures on sale for $5.49 which, adjusted for inflation, is still a preposterously cheap price.

Heck, $5.49 shipped is a pretty good price just to steal his blaster for your old Boba Fett figures.

This is one of my favorite figures out of Hasbro in recent years, and I'd say if you still buy from Amazon it's worth their selling it too cheaply for you to get one. Click here to check availability.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,998: Darth Maul (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, January 26, 2023

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Darth Maul (The Black Series). This is a pretty excellent figure - the facial expression is superb, the head spikes are spiky, the outfit is good, and the articulation is great. If you like this costume, this is a very good figure of it. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,997: Migs Mayfeld (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, January 24, 2023

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Migs Mayfeld (The Black Series). He's Bill Burr, but with lots of guns and a good recreation of his on-screen, The Mandalorian season one costume. I'd say buy it, and I'm cranky and old. Read on!
