Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,131: Jar Jar Binks (The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, May 7, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Jar Jar Binks (The Retro Collection). I have been seeing a steady trickle of this figure at Target, where it's an exclusive closed-box six pack with six individually carded figures inside. This is one of the better ones - his hands are more modernized than most retro figures, but he's still pretty charming and fits in more Mini-Rigs than I anticipated. Read on!

Retro Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith Figures Up for Everybody

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, May 4, 2024

UPDATE: Now open to all customers.

Hasbro Pulse has the shared Star Wars Retro Collection Star Wars Episode II & Episode III Multipack up for pre-order right now - but only for Hasbro Pulse Premium members. Usually these things go up for everybody later, but now it's restricted and it's $59.99 - not a bad price compared to other 6-packs. If you like this set, Target most likely has its The Phantom Menace set in stock at a store near you right now - but this set is coming later this year with Jango, Anakin, Padme, and more.

Retro-Inspired R2-D2 and C-3PO Talking Figures at ShopDisney

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, May 4, 2024

While not actual retro product, the retro-inspired C-3PO and R2-D2 Talking Action Figure Set – Classic Edition – Star Wars is up at ShopDisney right now for $49.99. It's two figures - including a slightly off-model Kenner-inspired R2-D2 - where C-3PO is around 9-inches and R2-D2 is over 6-inches.

Presumably this won't be in any stores other than theme parks.

Hasbro's May the 3rd Star Wars Fanstream

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, May 3, 2024

Hey hey, it's the fanstream - and pre-orders are coming tomorrow. What's new?

Shop Disney/Hasbro Pulse split The Retro Collection 6-pack, with a nice-but-odd mix of Attack of the Clones Mace Windu, Jango Fett, and Padme Amidala with Revenge of the Sith Anakin Skywalker, General Grievous, and Clone Trooper. I'm looking forward to this.

As they warned, The Vintage Collection HasLab got punted to... we don't know when. But that's probably a good idea, because a lot of pre-orders are about to go live and we've only got so much money. A X-Wing Pilots 4-pack with a Duros and a green-skinned lady from... OK I admit I have no idea.

Pipeline reveals include Ahsoka's take on a live-action The Clone Wars Anakin Skywalker, a 4-pack of Shriek Hawk Mandalorians, and most enticing, a Pulse/ShopDisney exclusive Mandalorian Forge playset. Can they support the playset in a small exclusive offering? We shall see!

For The Black Series...

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,130: Darth Maul (The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, May 2, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Darth Maul (The Retro Collection). To celebrate 25 years of the movie, as tomorrow is 25 years of Midnight Madness, we're going to review this 6-pack - currently at Target - until we look at 'em all. Maul's details are a little soft, but he has a better pose and is generally interesting to fuss with. He can't fit in the Sith Infiltrator though. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,129: Jannah (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 30, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Jannah (The Black Series). I didn't open mine until pretty recently - it's a decent figure, but you can also see how the modern Star Wars design ethos has a lot of overlap between movies, as she could just as easily be on the same shelf as Rogue One characters with her chunky tech gear off of more or less familiar clothing.. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,128: Darth Vader (Epic Hero Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, April 25, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Darth Vader (Epic Hero Series). He's widely available at Walmarts, has huge feet, and is a little wobbly - but he's Darth Vader, and as such is worthy of your attention. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,127: CZ Series Communications Droid (Gold, Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 23, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: CZ Series Communications Droid (Gold, Droid Factory). This bin parts figure is no longer available at Disney parks (or so I've been told), but its distinctive gold with silver highlight coloring may well be worth tracking down. He's from 2017. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,126: The Mandalorian (The Book of Boba Fett, The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, April 18, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: The Mandalorian (The Book of Boba Fett, The Retro Collection). This is just like the last one, but they swapped the Amban Phase Pulse Rifle with a Darkaber from Moff Gideon. It's a good figure, but if you've been all-in so far, you have all of these parts. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,125: Count Dooku (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 16, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Count Dooku (The Vintage Collection) . This figure is excellent - I got a bum one with two identical upper arms, and I still was thoroughly impressed by the likeness, detail, deco, articulation, and especially the cape. It's by no means perfect, but considering the last movie Dooku we had was over 10 years ago it's an easy figure to like. Also it seems to be selling out, so go get yours before it's gone. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,124: Saw Gerrera (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, April 11, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Saw Gerrera (The Black Series). This is not a figure that kept its value, but it is a pretty good one. It's loaded with sculpted detail, some of which isn't painted, but it's excellent at the current market prices. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,123: Paz Vizsla (Epic Hero Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 9, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Paz Vizsla (Epic Hero Series). This figure feels like a real Kenner toy from the late 1980s or 1990s, with lots of fun parts. It's not cheap at $15, but it is incredibly satisfying and I would say pick it up and keep on on your desk to play with. I think you'll be pleased. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,122: 3PO Protocol Droid (Red, Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, April 4, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: 3PO Protocol Droid (Red, Droid Factory). This is not the carded one - but there's a comparison photo in the review. This is the one from the bins that no longer exist. The red color is a little different and the white eyes pop nicely. Read on!
