Diamond Select Toys Doing Star Wars Selects Figures?

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, October 4, 2020

File under "News to me!" - Star Wars Action News on Instagram posted what looks like a packaged white-boxed Boba Fett from Diamond Select Toys.  They've been doing their own Marvel figures for years, but so far nobody has managed to get approval to do plastic Star Wars in this size - so perhaps some slicensing took place during Hasbro's latest contract renewal.  Click here to see Boba on the Gram.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,730: Obi-Wan Kenobi (Clone Wars Redux, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 1, 2020

This Obi-Wan Kenobi (Clone Wars Redux, The Vintage Collection) is a lot like the one you missed in late 2011 - but just a bit different. If you missed the last one, this is a good substitute - but I kind of like the face on the original just a bit more.  Read on!

Baby Yoda on Vintage Cardback - Star Wars Razor Crest Stretch Goal

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 29, 2020

3862 Hasbro's PR team wrote in to say:

"In recent Hasbro Star Wars HasLab news, the brand has reached their stretch goal of 8,000 backers earlier today and subsequently revealed the second tier unlock for the HasLab Star Wars: The Vintage Collection Razor Crest – the Star Wars: The Vintage Collection The Child Figure with Pram!"

Also:

"Featuring a card back, head and arm sculpt, gear shaft knob, and Pram deco treatment you can only receive with the HasLab Razor Crest"

This probably means a mass retail release is coming, but even if it is, this is probably the easiest way to get yours.  (Even if it has a $350 ship with toilet with it.)

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,729: Wicket (Ewok Redux, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 29, 2020

If you missed the original in 2010, this Wicket (Ewok Redux, The Vintage Collection) is worth a look.  The deco has been changed, the accessories are tweaked a bit, and it still has the green season 2 cartoon cowl.  (It would've been awesome if the recolored it to match season 1 this time, but such is life.)  Is it worth buying? Probably! Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,728: Garazeb "Zeb" Orrelios (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 24, 2020

Garazeb "Zeb" Orrelios (The Black Series 6-Inch) is available now - but it's not in big box stores, as it's a fan channel exclusive. What does that mean? Order it online, or ask if your local comic shop has it.  It's big and cool, but it's $10 more than a regular figure.  Is it worth it?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,727: Luke Skywalker (Stormtrooper, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 22, 2020

There are two releases of this Luke Skywalker (Stormtrooper, The Vintage Collection) - last year's was in a 3-pack for SDCC, and this year's is on a cardback as pictured.  The blasters are a tiny bit different.  The head sculpts are new for these releases, while the Stormtrooper  body is pretty old.  Is it worth it?  Well, it's better than the last one. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,725: K-2SO (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 15, 2020

We assure you, K-2SO (The Vintage Collection) is new! Lots of articulation and paint has been added to this 3 3/4-inch figure, which you may have bought a couple of times in other formats by now.  The spin-off with the character is a ways off, but at least you can enjoy having him early... or late.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,724: Power Droid (Lars Family Homestead, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 10, 2020

It's in the movie!

Hey it's Kit Fisto (The Black Series 6-Inch!  It's the new Obi-Wan body with new hands and a new head. And the wrong lightsaber.  But odds are your average collector won't notice, so it just looks like Kit Fisto, which is how it should look.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,722: General Leia Organa (The Black Series 6-Inch)

Star Wars Galaxy's Edge Day at Target - New Droids!

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, August 30, 2020

3858 A bunch of Galaxys Edge Trading Outpost items are hitting Target stores (and Target.com) today - but a complete list was not made available.   Repacks of the theme park exclusive Commander Pyre, Hondo Ohnaka, and DJ R-3X are joined by all-new Captain Cardinal 6-inch figures.  The big Millennium Falcon is, so far, an online only reissue. There are new roleplay blasters, plushies, and Funko Pop!s too - but what I found the most interesting are these Hasbro Droid Depot figures.  There are 6 of them for $9.99 each under DPCI 087-16-1746.
