Adam Pawlus QandA

Q&A: Star Wars Variations, Rogue One, and Hoarding

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, February 5, 2017

This week in Q&A - let's talk figure variants. If you haven't tuned on yet, we can talk about the seemingly strange Rogue One figure selections. Given Disney, it's hard to know what's good, what's bad, and what's meant to be a masked spoiler. And speaking of spoiled - hoarding! Oddly, it's not something I hear about very much in our circles.

Q&A: Rogue Trooper Popularity, Star Wars Pilots, and Tie Ming - er, Timing

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, January 29, 2017

This week in Q&A - Timing! Is it true big box retailers can be impatient when new toys come out around a seasonal reset? Yes. And Rebel Pilots - boy howdy, are there a lot of them. Also Trooper References - it would seem Rogue One fans are fan of going black and also tan! Also white. Look, we love armored figures.

Q&A: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Toys on Demand, and Black Robots

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, January 22, 2017

This week in Q&A - 3-D Printing, official-style is here via Disney. Is it good, bad, or worth ignoring? The Clone Wars - ended, have they? And C2-B5 - why? WHYYYYYYYYY? Why not?

Also, please remember that if you have a dollar, instead of throwing it in the street you can donate to our Patreon. It's like a PBS pledge drive, only there are no tote bags and no operas. Keep the server lights on, and get Q&A a week early (as available)!

Q&A: More Star Wars Vehicles, X-Wing Redux, and Timing

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, January 15, 2017

This week in Q&A - We're going to talk about vehicles. What is a disappointment? It depends on who you ask. And New X-Wings? Well, I'm not optimistic. Timing is important. Especially in Star Wars.

Q&A: Rogue Vehicles, Star Wars Specials, and Star Wars Variations

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, January 8, 2017

This week in Q&A - Let's talk Exclusivity. Rights are maybe not the best word to use. Cantina alien variations - are you missing something significant, or is this just a weird memory? and TIE Striker nomenclature - I could use some help on this one.

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, January 1, 2017

Q&A: Star Wars Answers, Post-Dental Surgery #2 of 2

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, December 18, 2016

This week in Q&A - I'm wasted, again! The post-dental proceedings continue as the stuff starts to wear off. What could possibly go wrong? Well, you'll find out.

The topics: Big vehicles! What was the biggest thing from the good old days? Random questions! Sure, we can do that. And more vehicles - can we expect more from recent Disney-era stuff that isn't the newest Disney-era stuff? Maybe.   Look, apparently I'm a lot less fun when I'm doped up and have no attention span.

Q&A: Star Wars Answers, Post-Dental Surgery #1 of 2

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, December 11, 2016

This week in Q&A - I'm wasted! Also don't do drugs kids. Last Wednesday I got some dental surgery and am told to not operate heavy machinery and not to engage in any activities where bad judgment should come in to play - but I see no reason to deviate from my usual bad judgment plans. This intro was written the night before, but all of the answers are unedited (except for any coding errors) immediately after I got home following the procedure. Let's see how this plays out, won't we? As long-time readers know I'm not a drinker so I'm zero fun at parties - so I'm as curious to see if this ends up interesting as you are.

The topics: When does it end? Never! And Tank Pilots and Ranks - let's get pedantic. Also Wish Lists - why not? We've got 3 more questions from this session next week, including areas where it gets a little disgusting.

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, November 27, 2016

This week in Q&A - Classic Creatures - returning, or dead guys? The Big Giant Vehicle - just who will buy these things, anyway? And Super Articulation - well, who doesn't like life to be a parade of not getting what they want, anyway?

Q&A: Star Wars Expanded Universe, ALIENS, and 5-Jointed Figures

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, November 13, 2016

This week in Q&A - ALIENS - at least it's not politics, right? And old Expanded Universe exclusives - is there hope that you'll see these now-Legends characters again as toys? No. Hope is a lie. And 5-jointed wonders - what's new for the old school?
