Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,294: R5-SK1 (Rogue One, Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, October 24, 2016

It took me longer to grasp than it should have, but I'm pretty sure R5-SK1 is a nod to Skippy, the Jedi Droid.  If you don't know what that is, you missed Star Wars Tales - and that was a fine comic.  This new droid is one of four figures in a new Disney parks exclusive droid pack for Rogue One, where one droid looks like one you probably have, another is coming with a big vehicle later, and the remaining two are seemingly brand new for this set.   If you like droids, this is a good week to be you - we're going to examine the entire set.  Read on!

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 20, 2016

New for Rogue One is... Rey?  The super-popular hero of the last film is back with new gear and a new head sculpt - and it's a good one too.  Is it enough to buy the fifth or sixth Rey in your toy box?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,292: Darth Vader (Rogue One)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, October 19, 2016

It's new!  Rarely does a year go by without a new toy of the main character of the saga, so we look forward to Darth Vader (Rogue One).  He's got six points of articulation, a cape, and a rocket launcher shaped like his belt buckle.   I'm loving it.  Will you?  Read on!

Disney Confirms New Star Wars Droid - R2-H16

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 18, 2016

Hot - or cold - on the tail of last year's robot is the new R2-H16.  This festive fellow has a hat with ear flaps, which is reason alone enough to buy one as 3 3/4-inch scale droids seem to have become the new Vinylmation as our hobby as concerned.  The official Disney Parks site has a feature on this and other new items, including a Bluetooth Stormtrooper Commlink for your phone, new plush Ewoks based on the 1980s cartoons - seriously!, and other goodies.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,291: Kanan Jarrus (Stormtrooper Disguise, Rogue One)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 18, 2016

From the new Rogue One line comes the Kanan Jarrus (Stormtrooper Disguise)!   It's a new taller Stormtrooper sculpt with a removable helmet and a wrist launcher for some reason.  It's actually pretty fun - and shortpacked, so get one or more if you see them.   Read on!

Callgrim: Kenner Boba Fett Edition

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 18, 2016

Late last year, we saw the release of the RawShark Studios The Order Bobaran Action Figure.  This sold out quickly, and was a $20 3-inch action figure that seems to almost perfectly color match Kenner's original 3 3/4-inch Boba Fett action figure.  And it's pretty cool.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,290: Sabine Wren (Rogue One)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 13, 2016

People love Sabine Wren.  She's selling - I see cases of Rogue One figures at Big Lots or Walmart or what have you, and typically she's the one who's gone.   If you see one, get one - find out why, read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,288: Kylo Ren (Rogue One)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 11, 2016

The new Kylo Ren (Rogue One packaging) is pretty sharp - it's the unmasked figure with a mask. The hood is removable, it has the new pose with new torso and legs, and you're probably going to dig it.  It has a firing projectile launcher too - why?  Because it's fun, that's why.   Read on!

NYCC: Rogue One: A 3 3/4-Inch Action Figure Update

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 6, 2016

Last week Hasbro dropped the first wave of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story action figures.  At New York Comic Con, Hasbro revelaed some more 3 3/4-inch action figures from waves 2 and 3!  Baze Malbus and a Stormtrooper Officer make up a new 2-pack.  New single figures from wave 2 include Darth Vader and Chirrut Imwe.   Future figures include Jyn Erso in an Imperial Ground Crew disguise, Bodhi Rook, and Admiral Raddus.  We assume there is a rule all Mon Calamari must be Admirals.

NYCC: Once You Go Black Series You Never Go Back Series

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 6, 2016

Hasbro sent along new The Black Series reveals from New York Comic Con!  Rogue One: A Star Wars Story releases await you including a new Darth Vader, Director Krennic, a Scarif Stormtrooper, Baze Malbus, and Chirrut Imwe.  Neat stuff!  Hasbro's photographers sure love negative space.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,287: Hera Syndulla (Pilot, Rogue One)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 6, 2016

The Rogue One line is mostly new movie stuff, but returning favorites and the Rebels cast like Hera Syndulla put in a few appearances.  This particular figure is an A-Wing pilot, and a pretty good one - but it's the Hera you bought before with a new head.  Is that enough to warrant another purchase?  It's a non-removable helmet, for what it's worth.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,286: AT-DP Pilot (Rogue One)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, October 5, 2016

No really, the AT-DP Pilot is new, I swear!  It looks just like the figure you bought  a couple of years ago, but it's a different tool - the foot copyrights are different, the textures are different, he's a tiny bit shorter, and the deco and paint masks are changed a bit.  The tint is different, too.   It's packed with the just-released Imperial Speeder vehicle - a worthwhile purchase - but it's almost the very definition of a "just different enough to make you mad" figure.  You might not even realize it's different without a side-by-side comparison, but don't worry - you've got one when you read on.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,285: K-2SO (Rogue One)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 4, 2016

He's new!  The 3 3/4-inch K-2SO (Rogue One) has a cool grappling hook accessory, but no blaster like his 6-inch counterpart.   What does he have in the movie?  I have no idea, I haven't seen it.  But I have seen the figure, and the figure's ball-and-socket joints give him a good range of motion.  And less stability.  But he looks cool.  Read on!
