Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,15: TC-14 (Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, July 11, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: TC-14 (Droid Factory). There are surprisingly few figures being made for the 25th anniversary of The Phantom Menace, so it makes sense to make a figure that's a retool and can use some old parts. I was mostly surprised to see how much of it was new, including the hands and torso - and the shine is nice too. Don't throw out your vac-metal CommTech TC-14, but maybe give this one a look.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,141: R3-RNBW (Pride Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, June 11, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: R3-RNBW (Pride Collection). It's Pride season, and this is probably the most colorful droid we've ever been offered - there are a ton of individual paint applications and some extra gray squares I may not be hip enough to identify. Regardless, it looks cool - this little robot has colorful boxes, vents, and outlines all over and really stands out in a sub-category known for being pretty colorful. Should you get one? Well I would. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,136: LOM-Series Protocol Droid (Black, Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, May 23, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: LOM-Series Protocol Droid (Black, Droid Factory). It's a bin build-a-figure so you may never see it again, but hey, it's neat and the kind of droid thing you'd probably be happy to see in a store if such things were possible in 2024. Read on!

ShopDisney Star Wars Pride Collection Droid Goodies for 2024

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, May 13, 2024

ShopDisney posted a couple of Pride products, and they're really cool. The R3-RN8W Droid Factory Figure – Star Wars Pride Collection may well be the best figure they've done so far - maybe R2-RNBW is better, I don't know, I haven't been able to get one after a few years - with a clear dome, black body, and tons of color. It's great.

Also new is a R2-D2 Slider Pin – Star Wars Pride Collection – Limited Release, which has a moving droid part on it.

Retro-Inspired R2-D2 and C-3PO Talking Figures at ShopDisney

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, May 4, 2024

While not actual retro product, the retro-inspired C-3PO and R2-D2 Talking Action Figure Set – Classic Edition – Star Wars is up at ShopDisney right now for $49.99. It's two figures - including a slightly off-model Kenner-inspired R2-D2 - where C-3PO is around 9-inches and R2-D2 is over 6-inches.

Presumably this won't be in any stores other than theme parks.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,127: CZ Series Communications Droid (Gold, Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 23, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: CZ Series Communications Droid (Gold, Droid Factory). This bin parts figure is no longer available at Disney parks (or so I've been told), but its distinctive gold with silver highlight coloring may well be worth tracking down. He's from 2017. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,122: 3PO Protocol Droid (Red, Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, April 4, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: 3PO Protocol Droid (Red, Droid Factory). This is not the carded one - but there's a comparison photo in the review. This is the one from the bins that no longer exist. The red color is a little different and the white eyes pop nicely. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,116: R3-Series Astromech Droid Clear with Orange

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 14, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: R3-Series Astromech Droid Clear with Orange. This is from a few years ago, but I wanted to finally pop him out of the blister from 2015 and take some pictures. This came out of the parts bins, so your best bet to getting one is eBay - and some of those prices aren't that bad, all things considered. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,110: R4-Series Astromech Droid Black with Silver

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, February 22, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: R4-Series Astromech Droid Black with Silver. This was a later droid bin part from the Disney theme parks - and it looks a lot like a Hasbro dome, but doesn't have a perfectly matching body. It's also not too expensive on eBay if you can find it. Read on!

Sony to Take Over Disney's Physical Media Business

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, February 20, 2024

Via Variety: Disney Strikes Deal for Sony to Take Over Its DVD, Blu-ray Disc Business. From TFA: " As part of the deal, Sony will market, sell and distribute all Disney’s new releases and catalog titles on physical media to consumers through retailers and distributors in the U.S. and Canada. Disney will continue to manage its own digital media, like premium video-on-demand."

Some stores like FYE, Barnes & Noble, Target, and Walmart still carry some physical media while Best Buy retail stores are in the process of phasing it out. In many markets, local media and record shops might be an even better bet as the once-ubiquitous 5-inch digital versatile disc is increasingly a niche product, albeit one that has enjoyed a much longer and arguably stronger life than VHS.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,106: Y5-X2

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, February 8, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Y5-X2. This has an R5 dome, and a Rebel symbol, and red eyes. I like it. Read on!

Disney Launches New Star Wars: Ahsoka Droid Action Figure Pack

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, January 29, 2024

It's that time again - and it's been a while! We haven't got a non-holiday droid pack in a while, so theme parks and ShopDisney now have a $49.99 Star Wars: Ahsoka Droid Action Figure Set with Huyang (a different version from Hasbro is also in The Vintage Collection), Chopper (ditto), C4-R4C, and RD-3. Sadly, the little Kenner-domed guy isn't in this one - hopefully he's coming down the road. You can go to the park, or you can click here to get the set for $12.50/per before taxes and shipping.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,102: R4-X2

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, January 25, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: R4-X2. You might not remember this one - it's from a Disney parks The Last Jedi two-pack and it's pretty awesome in person. It looks like it would fit in nicely with R2-X2, if you have the later green flavor of that one. Also it's long since sold out. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,098: C1 Droid (Advent Calendar 2022)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, January 11, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: C1 Droid (Advent Calendar 2022). It's another droid, with bright colors, that's Christmas related, but I don't get the gag - but little brown shoes, sure. Green pants, OK. Yellow suspenders, I can't complain. If you like robot toys, it's an interesting one with a fold-out arm in his chest and two more on the head. Read on!
