Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,638: Wedge Antilles (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 14, 2019

It's Luke with a new head, but Wedge Antilles (The Black Series 6-Inch)  is pretty good.  You get a great portrait, a blaster, a helmet, and possibly the wrong haircut.  It's hard to know for sure - but you can read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,637: The Mandalorian (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 12, 2019

The show is on today - I haven't seen it yet - but The Mandalorian (The Black Series 6-Inch) is a figure you can get now! It's armored, you can see some Scarif Trooper armor, and it looks cool.   The coloring looks like something that would fit in with Jabba's entourage, but for now he'll just wander the shelves.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,636: Supreme Leader Kylo Ren (Galaxy of Adventures 5-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 7, 2019

Available in a 2-pack at Target with an unmasked head, this Supreme Leader Kylo Ren (Galaxy of Adventures 5-Inch)  is pretty great.  Complete with lightsaber and cloak, he can slash and cut and fight and do all the crazy things you want him to do.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,635: Rey (Galaxy of Adventures 5-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 5, 2019

The newish Rey (Galaxy of Adventures 5-Inch) is probably on a peg in a store near you, which is wrong, it should be in your house.  She's loaded with articulation, the paint job is fantastic, and there are good accessories and a working blaster holster.  And she's only ten bucks.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,634: D-O (Galaxy of Adventures 5-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 31, 2019

Now available and pretty easy to find, the D-O (Galaxy of Adventures 5-Inch) comes as part of a pretty good 3-pack.  It's the smallest figure in the set, complete with an articulated neck and hair.  As of now the 3 3/4-inch D-O is exclusive to a Disney parks gift set - so should you get this cheaper and easier to find set instead? Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,633: Maz Kanata (Holographic, Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 29, 2019

Today let's look at that under-distributed Maz Kanata Holographic figure sold in a 5-pack that seemed to show up more in Europe than the USA.  It's Maz, but clear blue.  It'll go great with your Mirage, Cobra Commander, and Darth Vader holographic figures... and maybe your clear blue Glyos figures and 90 other clear blue guys.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,632: Emperor Palpatine (with Throne, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 24, 2019

The Amazon-exclusive Emperor Palpatine (with Throne, The Black Series 6-Inch)  is pretty cool. With better paint and more gear than the 2013 release, it also costs about twice as much - but with the alternate heads and hands, it's worth it.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,631: R5-BOO19 (Droid Factory Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 22, 2019

New this year - and probably gone soon - is this glow in the dark R5-BOO19 (Droid Factory Line Look).    It's a black droid with white glow paint, so you'll want to get it if you missed the previous, now expensive glow astromech.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,630: Zuckuss (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 17, 2019

Debuting at Disney Stores last year, the Zuckuss (The Black Series 6-Inch)  is around a few more places now - and it's pretty great.  It might also be on clearance if you can find it.  He has a blaster and a nifty "coat" over the plastic body, and of course he's a little bit shorter than some other Black Series releases.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,629: Vedain (Skiff Pilot, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 15, 2019

The new exclusive figure in the vintage 3-pack, this Vedain (Skiff Pilot, The Vintage Collection)  is pretty cool - and a mix of new parts with old Weequay and Nikto bits.  The end result is something that looks totally new and absolutely worth a look.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,628: R2-D2 (Galaxy of Adventures 5-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 10, 2019

Surprising probably no one, R2-D2 (Galaxy of Adventures 5-Inch)  is great. It's hefty and sturdy. It has ball-jointed ankles - a first for R2-D2 figures, as far as I know. Also his "bald spot" returns - the circle on top of his dome was left silver rather than painted blue.  Again.  But it's a good figure and the centerpiece of a nice 3-pack - so read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,627: First Order Driver (Galaxy of Adventures 5-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 8, 2019

The First Order Driver (Galaxy of Adventures 5-Inch)  is infuriatingly good. "But Adam," you say, "I don't want a new scale." These figures are basically the line you thought we'd get in the early 1990s - bigger, lots of articulation, and stylized.  They're good! They're not as good as the 6-inch line, but articulation is above and beyond a lot of what we get for 3 3/4-inch figures.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,626: Sith Trooper (SDCC Debut, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 3, 2019

Fresh from SDCC, the Sith Trooper (SDCC Debut, The Black Series 6-Inch)  is like the one you can get in stores in a few hours, but costs more and has a little more gear.  You should probably get one of these and more of the cheap ones. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,625: Captain Phasma (Quicksilver Baton, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 1, 2019

A Disney Store debut sold later at Entertsinment Earth and elsewhere, this Captain Phasma (Quicksilver Baton, The Black Series 6-Inch) has one of the gnarliest cracked helmets I've seen on an action figure of this size. There are also significantly cool burn marks and a cloth cape, plus two toothpicks of varying sizes.  It's an old figure with new parts, but is that enough? I think so, especially now that it may be on sale in some stores.  Read on!

New York Comic Con - New Toys Panel on Saturday, October 5

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, September 30, 2019

I will be hosting another panel at New York Comic Con!  Come see new toys, plush, action figures, blind box toys, concept art, prototypes, and other stuff from over a dozen toy lines on Saturday, October 5 at 6:30 PM. Come to room 1C03 and I'm told there will be a freebie from Funko there too, so get there early.

There will be some mentions of Star Wars but there will be lots of other items from a number of big action figure collector lines you may find exciting.  I'm not really supposed to share too much in case licensors pull something, but I would say it's a bigger variety of stuff compared to what we showed at San Diego.
