Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,038: Imperial Officer (Death Star Scanning Crew)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, October 18, 2013

Let's put a stake through the heart of this week with the Imperial Officer (Death Star Scanning Crew), which finishes up our look at Kmart's new Scanning exclusives.  Next week: Ewoks.  But for now, check out this black-suited villain with fleshy gloves and a swell hat.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,037: Imperial Technician (Death Star Scanning Crew)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 17, 2013

OK, so today we're looking at the new-for-2013 Imperial Technician (Death Star Scanning Crew).  It looks a lot like the 2009 figure, with some deco changes - and since it's a trooper, a slight difference is enough for me to qualify this as a new figure worth your while.  I am easy.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,036: Imperial Technician (Imperial Scanning Crew)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, October 16, 2013

There are two of them! Today it's the Imperial Technician (Imperial Scanning Crew), or to the layman, "this is the one with the new head and missing parts."  You'll want this one - he's loaded with new gear and a head that's a tad too small.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,035: TK-421 (Stormtrooper)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 15, 2013

We're back for a bit! Figure of the Day returns - but not every day - to show you TK-421, a new Stormtrooper that you might find at your local Kmart if they haven't already closed up.  Would you believe Hasbro made it interesting?  Well, they did.   Check it out - read on!

Toy Stories: One More Klosing Kmart

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, October 2, 2013

A while ago on the Tumblr I posted a series of rambling, go-nowhere tales I called Toy Stories and now you people get to suffer through a few of them. Most of these yarns are spun around the well-worn topic of my aging into this hobby and watching most of the places I used to hunt go away, and tonight is no exception. One of the two Kmarts I frequented as a single-digits child (for those keeping track 3401 W Greenway Rd, Phoenix, AZ 85053) has a big "STORE CLOSING" banner up on it, and I had to go in to see if I could get some 90% off underpants. (This was not to be.) As a bonus, wouldn't you know it, the store is the new record holder of the oldest Hasbro Star Wars toy I've seen in the wild.

Off-Topic But Interesting: New Power Lords 3 3/4-Inch Action Figures

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 19, 2013

We rarely post about other action figure lines here, but the crossover potential was enough so that we had to mention this for you customizers. It's the return of the 1980s line Power Lords! The Four Horsemen (of ex-McFarlane and current Masters of the Universe Classics fame) put up two new Power Soldiers for pre-order on their store through Sunday afternoon.  Each figure is $10 and is designed with Glyos-compatible limbs, which mean you can swap parts between figures, which means bully for your customizers.  This pre-order is for the second run, due in November.
