By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, May 5, 2020

We hope you didn't miss Zorii Bliss (The Vintage Collection)!  If you loved the new movie or just need background figures, this is a good one.  There's a lot of gold here, plus one of the most ornate helmets in the line.   Read on!

Pre-Orders Live: Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Shadow Stormtrooper The Black Series Action Figure

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, May 4, 2020

3763 The sliding scale of what is on- or off-limits under the Disney regime is tough - does a character being canon matter anymore?  Lucky for us, apparently not!   GameStop's 6-inch Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Shadow Stormtrooper The Black Series Action Figure is up for pre-order now, limit 1 per customer.  At $24.99 with no in-store pick-up option, it's not cheap for one of nearly a dozen figures to use or share this tooling.

Hasbro Star Wars Black Series Amazon Exclusives on Hasbro Pulse?

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, May 2, 2020

In a stream yesterday, Hasbro revealed several new items including 3 Amazon exclusives which were supposed to be up for sale yesterday.  The pre-orders didn't seem to go live - but today, all three are up for sale on Hasbro Pulse.  (I just ordered them, myself.) 

3762

These include a 40th Anniversary carded Han Solo in Carbonite Chamber (just the block, $14.99, deco may be different than the 2013 release), a 2-pack of 4-LOM and Zuckuss (Kenner-style deco, swapped names, 40th anniversary Kenner packaging), and a Carbonized Darth Vader (ugly blue, $24.99.)

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,686: Purge Stormtrooper (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, April 30, 2020

Fresh from GameStop - a few months ago - is the tough-to-find Purge Stormtrooper (The Black Series 6-Inch).  It's good.  Can you find it?  Probably not, especially with stores closed - I saw one, once, in a damaged box and then bought it.   Hopefully you can find one soon too! 

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,685: Clone Trooper (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 28, 2020

Shipping in that wave of The Mandalorian figures, this Clone Trooper (The Vintage Collection) is the one you probably see left on pegs when you go out for toilet paper and ramen.   It's really close to the figure from 10 years ago, but if you open it and pop off the helmet you'll see a new face painted underneath.  It's a great troop builder, but do you need it anyway?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,684: Sith Jet Trooper (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, April 23, 2020

It's red! And new!  You can a Sith Jet Trooper (The Black Series 6-Inch)  if you luck into one during your provision quests or online shopping.  It's pretty shiny and there's conflicting reference to the helmet grooves... so maybe it's accurate!  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,683: Knight of Ren (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 21, 2020

He's part of a group, but so far, he's the only one in this size! The Knight of Ren (The Black Series 6-Inch) is starting to show up now, but you can also order yours online.   He has some great articulation with some excellent motion hidden in the shoulders behind a rubbery shirt, with some of the best articulation Hasbro has done with Star Wars in this scale.  He can even mimic the designs in the publicity photos.  Also, supposedly his name is "Vicrul" but that isn't on the box.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,682: Cara Dune (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, April 16, 2020

Hasbro has been really upping its game with the new 3 3/4-inch figures it puts out - reissues get better paint and brand new characters are often the very best we've ever seen.  Cara Dune (The Vintage Collection) is up there with amazing accessories, a fantastic likeness, and top tier articulation.  It's the kind of thing that makes you wish they'd give you a full line from The Mandalorian which, it is worth reminding people, is not planned.  But you can get this one!  Read on.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,681: Remnant Stormtrooper (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 14, 2020

It's dirty and hopefully Hasbro makes a lot more of the Remnant Stormtrooper (The Vintage Collection)!  Using the newer figure sculpt, the worn-out deco and flecks of damage just look marvelous.  Get some. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,680: The Mandalorian (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, April 9, 2020

Awesome and also a cruel tease, the The Mandalorian (The Vintage Collection)  is one of Hasbro's best 3 3/4-inch figures this year.  Sadly, it's not part of a much larger line with vehicles or playsets - but in and of itself, it's a must-buy.  Go get one.  Go for it.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,679: Zorii Bliss (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 7, 2020

A figure that you'll probably regret skipping in a couple of years is the Zorii Bliss (The Black Series 6-Inch) figure!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,678: Count Dooku (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, April 2, 2020

One of many awesome recent releases is Count Dooku (The Black Series 6-Inch) - it looks like Christopher Lee, it has a fantastic cape, and there's a spectuacular lightsaber swoosh.  Read on!

Hasbro Reveals More Star Wars The Black Series and The Vintage Collection Figures

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 31, 2020

Hasbro sent along even more pictures of new The Black Series and The Vintage Collection items - some of which you can pre-order right now at online shops like Entertainment Earth and others which are not paid advertisers. What's new, you ask? Ewoks. Ackbars. But no Jeffs. Who here woke up this week and thought we would see a Return of the Jedi batch of figures, let alone Admiral Ackbar? Not me!

Hasbro Reveals Carbonized Star Wars The Black Series 6-Inch Boba Fett Action Figure

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 31, 2020

Hasbro sent along a picture archive of one of a few new reveals today with STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES CARBONIZED COLLECTION 6-INCH BOBA FETT Figure. The same mold has been in use since 2013, but these shiny figures tend to do well with chase fans and Christopher Radko enthusiasts. It's coming soon, and you can see it right now.
