Adam Pawlus QandA

Q&A: Star Wars Shopping Holiday Edition

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, May 1, 2016

This week in Q&A - Getting rid of stuff! You have suggestions. I argue with them. Rancor Pits - did you get one? Should you? Can you even? Also Easter Eggs - there are still lots of things from the original movie that not everybody knows and people are still finding.

Q&A: Star Wars Selling, Playmation, and Revisit Your Old Stuff

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, April 24, 2016

This week in Q&A - Old Star Wars Toys are New again! Or rather, we basically kept hundreds of thousands of figures mint-in-package for 20 years so now kids might actually want them. Also Playmation - yeah, not much to worry about there. Also Operation: Dump the Chumps - how do you sell off the debris from a collection you've bought?

Q&A: Star Wars Mini Vehicles, Colleciton Holes, and Stuff to the Third Power

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, April 17, 2016

This week in Q&A - Mini Vehicles - crossing lines for maximum collection power! Toy quantity - just how many Star Wars figures can we expect from this new movie initiative? And filling all the holes - no wait, that's wrong. Rather classic characters - is Hasbro not going to look back with all the new movies?

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, April 10, 2016

This week in Q&A - Storing 6-inch Star Wars figures! ...OK, we don't have a great solution there yet. But maybe you do. And Are we wasting our breath when it comes to figures we want that aren't in development yet? Maybe. Finally, 3D Printing and the future of toys. If it has one, it's a ways off, but let's have fun anyway.

Q&A: Hunting, Bugging Employees, and More Star Wars 3 3/4-Inch Angst

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, April 3, 2016

This week in Q&A - the sound of 3 3/4-inch falling apart. This is a common thread - and it (apparently) can't be reiterated enough how market conditions and the changing audience has diverted where Hasbro puts its resources in to Star Wars and how it competes against itself for your dollars. Also toy hunting - do you bug the employees? Well, one guy scored doing just that. Me, I just shrug and go to the next place after getting death-stares from big box stores when they ask me if I need any help, but I digress.

Q&A: Indy, Indy, and Star Wars

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, March 27, 2016

This week in Q&A - Indiana Jones. Which is a separate license from Star Wars. Also more Indiana Jones. Not to be outdone, we're also going to look at the vehicle count - are we getting a fair amount of vehicles for the new flick or are we being shorted? I guess it all depends on your point of view.

Q&A: Star Wars Luke Figures, Kylo Ren Head Swapping, and Exclusive Exceptionalism

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, March 20, 2016

This week in Q&A - #WheresLuke? That was the premise of the new movie, and also the premise of Hasbro's current action figure line. And Kylo Ren's helmet - can you swap it between the 3 3/4-inch Jungle figures and the Walmart Black Series figure? The answer may not surprise you. Also more missed figures - maybe. If we don't know we missed it, did we miss it?

Q&A: Star Wars Metal Vehicles, Hasbro's Direction, and Old Classic Prototypes

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, March 6, 2016

This week in Q&A - let's talk about Titanium and Hot Wheels vehicles - did you miss some? Probably! Changes - I don't plan on making many, but you asked. And old prototypes - there's really only one way to handle selling those things, and I think you know what it is.

Q&A: Star Wars Clearance Crush, Expanded Universe Returns, and Delays Aplenty

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, January 31, 2016

This week in Q&A - Let's talk the Episode 8 Delay - is it a problem? Not for me! And the doom of Toys R Us and the impending toy clearance crunch - I may not share your opinions. But I do think the old Expanded Universe still very much has a home in the redacted galaxy we inhabit today... it just might not be identical.
