Adam's Star Wars Newsletter Returns... with Hasbro Pulse Fan Fest Coverage and More

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, April 9, 2021

As Captain Beefheart once said to hecklers, "I'm going to do what I want to do!"

I don't much like coding or social media or anything like that - but I love writing about toys.  Back in the 1990s I ran a Star Wars email newsletter called ASWN, Adam's Star Wars Newsletter, as a dial-up text email blasted out to people.  I may set up a new email server, but I brought it back as a 1995-chic web page with all the new info from today's Hasbro Pulse announcements, and some updates on upcoming comics, streaming shows, and conventions that you may have missed.

Click here to return to 1995 with a brand new issue of Adam's Star Wars newsletter.  It's all text.  That's how I want to do it.   If you don't like it, there are lots of other web pages not written by cranky middle-aged fans who started writing about toys as cranky teenage fans.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,795: Din Djarin (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, April 1, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Din Djarin (The Black Series 6-Inch). He's got a removable helmet with a nose bump, a little green sidekick, some slabs of metal, and a floating baby stroller - plus some other stuff. It's not cheap, but you get a lot in the box if you can find one. Read on.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,788: Crosshair (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 16, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Crosshair (The Black Series 6-Inch). This Clone looks a bit like Tem Morrison and a bit like Clint Eastwood - but he's also missing the trademark crosshair on his helmet. There's a lot of sculpted detail and specialized armor elements, so Clone fans should get a huge kick out of this. The character appeared on The Clone Wars last season and will be starring in The Bad Batch in May. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,787: Hunter (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, March 15, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Hunter (The Black Series 6-Inch). ShHshares tooling with Crosshair. But what may interest you is that he looks suspiciously like a member of Delta Squad from the Republic Commando video games - are we looking at a secret pretool? Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,786: Asajj Ventress (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 11, 2021

Today in Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day: Asajj Ventress (The Black Series 6-Inch). She shares tooling with Dark Side Vision Rey, but you wouldn't know it at first glance. This is one of the very best figures in this scale. This version of Dooku's assassin is largely based on the first couple of seasons of the 2008 The Clone Wars show - and read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,785: Bo-Katan Kryze (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 9, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day: Bo-Katan Kryze (The Black Series 6-Inch). She's a new figure you'll probably never see on shelves because everybody else wants her, so ordering online might be a good move. The sculpting is great, but you'll notice a lot of sculpted scrapes and scuffs that lack any sort of decoration - which is a shame, it's a great sculpt with a good helmet and an excellent head under said helmet. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,784: Captain Cardinal (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, March 8, 2021

Today in Figure of the Day: Captain Cardinal (The Black Series 6-Inch). It's a First Order Stormtrooper, but red, and with a cape - and you got charged $5 more for it. It's a book character that I don't believe is a costumed character at Galaxy's Edge, but I may be wrong about that. It was part of Target's exclusive program and that's 100% appropriate. When do I get my Target exclusive Red Bumblebee? Is that happening? And if not why not? Anyway, we're going to try three figures a week for a while and see how that goes. Read on!

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, February 25, 2021

Today in Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day: Rey (Dark Side Vision, The Black Series 6-Inch). I just got my Asajj Ventress and the two share some tooling - a clever cost-saving measure that serves both figures well as the rang of motion is excellent and the sculpting is top-notch. Read on!
