Adam Pawlus QandA

Q&A: Read It At Home Since You Won't Be In The Office Today Edition

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, May 26, 2013

It's time for Q&A! It's also Memorial Day in the USA, which means a lot of you are probably not at work, meaning you aren't reading this today. Because it's in the news, a lot of you wrote in about 3-D printing and how that whole thing might affect the hobby in the near and long term. Also new vehicles I may have touched. And Mattel has a $1 Enterprise in the marketplace. Send in questions for the next column, because hey, what else are you doing?

Q&A: The Future, The Past, Old Toys You Think Are Worth Something

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, May 19, 2013

And how should you sell your collection over the next few years? Do you think your stuff is going to go up in value just because there's a new movie? Read on for more and send in questions for next time!

All this and more as we wait for actual new product announcements in this week's Q&A - feel free to send in your questions for next time!

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, April 7, 2013

I'm still here! Q&A is back with your questions, and apparently you really want to talk about Vintage and 2013 and the lack of new stuff on the shelves. You also want to talk about real vintage figures, and of course which 2013 new figures are different enough to make you mad because you have excellent taste. All this and crazy ramblings from me, after the jump.  If you have questions for next week (that aren't about the 2013 line) please be sure to send 'em in!

Q&A: Droid Factory, New Figures, Parts Swapping, and Selling It All Off

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, March 31, 2013

Happy Monday, Q&A fans! Let's talk about Droid Factory some more, because that's a thing and we have to talk about things. And are people selling off their collections?

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, March 17, 2013

And let's complain about 2013 some more since, I guess, that's what people are asking about now. Please feel free to send in other questions, and read this week's update after the jump.

Q&A: Movie Heroes, Yoda Line, Endor AT-AT, and Other Things You Can't Have

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, March 10, 2013

It's Monday, so let's keep Q&A a-goin'! Let's talk Yoda line look because I love to be depressed.

We have a lot of those this week. Read on!

Q&A: Black Series, Micro Series, Saga Legends, Astromech Droids, and Much More!

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, March 3, 2013

It's Monday, so let's keep Q&A going! Let's talk about Micro Figures and that trend, as well as the new Large 6-Inch Black Series, which will no doubt be a regular topic between now and the time it becomes unprofitable. (And if 7-inch Unleashed is any indication, for years beyond.) Who wants Wild Saga Legends Speculation? I DO! Oh, and we can talk about Droid Factory at Disney too, as I may be the only one who basically hates how that whole thing works out. Read on!
