Star Wars: Droids Now on Disney+

Droids


After being out of circulation for decades, save for some laserdiscs or VHS tapes (along with some heavily edited DVDs and VHS tapes), the original 13 episodes with the original music can be seen! Disney+ posted Droids overnight, so if you're a subscriber you can log in and watch this fun and admittedly goofy masterwork starring R2-D2 and C-3PO.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,828: R1-J1 (Droid Depot Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, June 17, 2021

It's another robot! R1-J1 (Droid Depot Line Look). It's like the Hasbro one from almost 20 years ago, but there are a ton of tiny differences to infuriate or delight you. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,827: Greef Karga (The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, June 15, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Greef Karga (The Retro Collection). Vinyl capes are in this season, as are loops on holsters that can store blasters. But you probably can't find this in stores - so should you get yourself one? Yes. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,826: Jawa (Kenner, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, June 14, 2021

Like an old Kenner figure, but bigger! Jawa (Kenner, The Black Series 6-Inch). It's still in stock on Amazon for $20, and I would argue it's very much worth it. Sure, it lacks one of the blasters from the previous release, but those cloth robes are super cool. Read on!

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, June 10, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Jaxxon (The Black Series 6-Inch). It's one of two characters I never actually expected to see as an action figure - and here it is. It's out right now. But you have to order it online if you want one. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,824: EG-01 (Droid Depot Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, June 8, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: EG-01 (Droid Depot Line Look). It's boxy, but good - and compatible with the previous Power Droid domes, strangely enough. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,823: L4-R6 (Droid Depot Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, June 7, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: L4-R6 (Droid Depot Line Look). The droid looks like some of your other droids, but it has great dirty printing on it and a slightly different stencil template making it not like the legions of Hasbro and Disney droids you've bought over the last couple of decades. Read on!

Q&A: Star Wars Distribution, Figure Formats, Retail Nightmares

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, June 6, 2021

This week in Q&A - Distribution! Hasbro doesn't like to talk about it, and I don't like to either. Changing figure formats - just how high could prices get? All this and more await you!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,822: B-R72 (Droid Depot Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, June 3, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: B-R72 (Droid Depot Line Look). It's part of a big droid boxed set being sold at Disney theme parks (or eBay) right now. If you can find it, and squint, maybe you'll see it as a DHL mascot. I like it. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,821: Moff Gideon (The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, June 1, 2021

We're almost out of Kenner retro figures to review - but I don't want to live in the present! Moff Gideon (The Retro Collection). The Darksaber is the old Bespin/Jedi Luke lightsaber, but in black. The blaster pistol is new. The vinyl cape is retro, and on this particular figure seems like a good stylistic choice despite the vinyl capes being phased out of new characters by 1982. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,811: R5-Series Astromech Droid White with Red Panels (2015 Edition)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, May 31, 2021

Today in just different enough to presumably make you mad: R5-Series Astromech Droid White with Red Panels (2015 Edition). Since they had the body, they repainted it, and we got some pretty nifty variations on the old Bounty Hunter droid. Mine has CZ arms, which look neat since one of the shoulders is painted a slightly different color. These things sometimes look like they were assembled by Jawas. Read on!
