Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,621: Stormtrooper (The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 17, 2019

The Kenner-style Stormtrooper (The Retro Collection)  is a lot like you remember from 41 years ago, but with some minor changes.   The hands are a little different. The neck still doesn't turn.  It's pretty good. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,620: Mountain Trooper (The First Order, Galaxy's Edge, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 12, 2019

A First Order trooper that uses some Empire parts, the Mountain Trooper (The First Order, Galaxy's Edge, The Black Series 6-Inch) is pretty nifty - but basically looks like a Scarif trooper if you squint.  He comes with Kylo Ren, Commander Pyre, and a Mouse Droid.  It's a decent set. Should you get it?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,619: Kylo Ren (The First Order, Galaxy's Edge, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 10, 2019

It's OK. The Kylo Ren (The First Order, Galaxy's Edge, The Black Series 6-Inch) is by no means a bad figure, but if you're a completist you'll be annoyed that you likely have one or more figures just like it.   The Last Jedi Kylo Ren body has the plastic helmet head, and odds are you'll have a crack at another figure like it in a few weeks.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,618: DJ R3X (Droid Depot, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 5, 2019

Everything old is newish again! The DJ R3X (Droid Depot, The Black Series 6-Inch)  takes the 1987 design and adds some new stuff and a fresh coat of paint to it - it's also the only Rex droid in this scale so far.  Is the three-armed wonder worth tracking down?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,617: Luke Skywalker (The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 3, 2019

Everything old remains old with Luke Skywalker (The Retro Collection)  - celebrating four decades and a year of existing, this classic yellow-head figure was briefly back in stores provided you didn't blink.  Target had them in the spring, Entertainment Earth had them in the summer, and you  hopefully got one in one of those two releases.  It's a little different, but it's pretty close to the original - certainly better than the 1995 Kenner Classic 4-Pack version.

Q&A: First Dibs and Star Wars Licensing Gets Competitive

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, September 1, 2019

This week in Q&A - How can Mattel and Hasbro both have Star Wars? That's the post-Disney sale world - they shared "dolls" and "die-cast metal," who knows what could be next! Also Store priorities - it's complicated, clandestine, and really not all that interesting. But hey, it's Labor Day.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,616: Chewbacca (The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, August 29, 2019

They're sold out, but the Chewbacca (The Retro Collection) is pretty cool. It's like the orgiinal, and close enough that if you didn't grow up with it you probably won't notice a huge difference - but the paint, sculpting, feel, and copyright marks give away its modern origins.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,615: 0-0-0 (Triple Zero, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, August 27, 2019

Check out the 0-0-0 (Triple Zero, The Black Series 6-Inch) - it's C-3PO with new arms, in black.  The hands are swappable, the colors are pretty good, and he's from a comic book you probably stopped reading by now, but is still being published.  Read on!

Q&A: Big Brand Bash Bonanza, Star Wars Pod Racing

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, August 25, 2019

This week in Q&A - Licenses are shufflin'! We're probably going to see a lot more of this. And Pod Racing - it didn't quite turn out like we expected in 1999.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,614: Boba Fett (The Black Series / The Empire Strikes Back 40th Anniversary Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, August 22, 2019

It's hard to pick a favorite figure, but Boba Fett (The Black Series / The Empire Strikes Back 40th Anniversary Collection)  has been on my desk for close to a month - that's gotta count for something, right?  It's a redeco of the 2013 figure - which also debuted as a San Diego Comic-Con exclusive - with an added blaster and no carbonite block.  Read on!
