Celebration Orlando Line Issues - How To Get X-Wing Luke

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, April 12, 2017

Back in 2013 Hasbro released the very first 6-inch The Black Series figures to mixed reviews - they were great, but a lot of fans opted out and that lead to cheap clearance prices on Amazon within a few months.   Fast-forward to today, and people are upset they missed a few of those early figures.  Hasbro is reissuing X-Wing Pilot Luke Skywalker for Star Wars Celebration this weekend, and there's a big process about how to line up to get yours.

8 More Star Wars Droids Coming to Disney Theme Parks

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 11, 2017

The less I say, the better - because there are 4 items to buy with a grand total of 8 new robots. The good news: there's finally going to be an easier way to get Chopper, and that super-articulated C-3PO you like is coming back in style. With blessed little competition from Hasbro these days, you'll probably have the scratch to pull these down.  From the Disney Parks article:

This month, Cody is part of a team rolling out a limited release, boxed set with four Astromech droid action figures inspired by characters from the animated series, “Star Wars: The Clone Wars.”

Additionally, three limited release action figures are making their debut including C1-10P “Chopper” from Disney XD’s animated series “Star Wars Rebels;” a two-pack featuring R2-D2 and C-3PO celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Star Wars: A New Hope; and a red Protocol droid, R-3D0, that was briefly seen in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Sci-fi supersite io9 posted a preview of a new 6-inch The Black Series Rey's Speeder!  This sizable, $60 vehicle should be out later this year and will undoubtedly be on display in Orlando at Star Wars Celebration this weekend.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,359: Finn (The Force Awakens Value 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, April 10, 2017

I'd bet that you don't have this particular Finn figure.   I got it from Mexico, it was also sold in Australia and presumably a few other countries - but not the USA.   It's a 6-inch "value" figure, and that The Force Awakens premiere assortment from 2005 hasn't shipped here.  Finn has 4 joints and a black blaster in his fist - is he nifty enough to buy?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,358: Imperial Hovertank Pilot (Rogue One Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, April 5, 2017

Check out the 3 3/4-inch Imperial Hovertank Pilot!  It's pretty sweet.  You didn't miss the tank, because as of yet there isn't one - maybe it'll appear in a future movie line.  At least you've got a pilot to staff it if/when it ever comes!  Read on.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,357: First Order Snowtrooper (The Force Awakens Value 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 4, 2017

This 6-inch First Order Snowtrooper is not the Black Series figure - it has only 4 joints and was sold outside the USA.  It's neat!  Hopefully Hasbro brings it over hear some day, for now it's eBay or bust.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,356: Saw Gerrera (Rogue One Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 30, 2017

It's Saw Gerrera! Exclusive to the Jedha Revolt 4-pack, this figure is loaded with detail, big hair, and a couple of accessories.  If you didn't get one, you'll probably be sorry in a couple of years.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,355: Edrio Two Tubes (Rogue One Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 28, 2017

As named on the Jedha Revolt box, Edrio Two Tubes is a pretty good action figure.  He can stand and sit, he has exquisite sculpting - the head in particular - and he has superior painting.  The deco may not be entirely as accurate or as dark as the character in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, but he does have the pilot equipment and rfile you're going to want.  Hopefully you track this one down and don't miss it, because he's part of a worthwhile set.  Read on!

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 23, 2017

Coming soon to home video!  Chirrut Imwe was one of the surprise stars of Rogue One last year, and the 3 3/4-inch figure might be in a store near you - or not, it's hard to know.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,353: AT-AT Driver (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 21, 2017

Another 6-inch figure you probably haven't found at retail at all is the AT-AT Driver from last year.  It's pretty great - lots of detail, lots of buttons, lots of articulation.  It'll be perfect for that 6-inch scale AT-AT being made by nobody ever.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,352: Sabine Wren (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, March 15, 2017

If you enjoy life,  you'll probably want Sabine Wren.  This 6-inch action figure is a Rebel Mandalorian artist with four accessories and some amazing paint operations on her armor.  And working holsters.  And a removable helmet with an articulated rangefinder - even Boba and Jango don't have that.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,351: Snowtrooper (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, March 15, 2017

Still hard to find, the Snowtrooper has barely showed up in any stores - but you can get it online.  It has two blasters and just enough mud on his boots that I assume you're going to dig it.  I'd love it if you could army build it, but that seems unlikely right now.  Read on!
