By Adam Pawlus — Monday, March 26, 2018

We're less than a month away from Solo toys, but while we wait let's catch up with LOM-Series Protocol Droid (Blue, Droid Factory).  You can put it together at the Disney parks, and yours might look different from mine - but it's blue!  It's cool!  Read on.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,437: BB-9E (Droid Factory Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, December 15, 2017

I saw The Last Jedi last night, but I wrote the review of BB-9E (Droid Factory Line Look)  a couple of weeks ago so as to avoid spoilers for you all.  It's a nice figure!  It looks good!  And yes, this is the Disney one - we'll look at Hasbro's shortly.  Read on!

Disneyland Adds New $25 AT-AT Star Wars Popcorn Bucket

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, December 8, 2017

3466 It's a strange new era of licensing Star Wars, with some of the strangest and newest things coming straight from the halls of Disney.   My pal Zac was at Anaheim's theme park this week and spied this new AT-AT Popcorn Bucket for $25.  He said it's about half of the size of a Kenner one and it's awkward and bulky - as you can see, it's a big toy with a hollow slot for a popcorn sack.   After years of novelty drinkware, it's certainly something new.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,425: BB-8 (Droid Factory Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, November 13, 2017

One good droid deserves another - the BB-8 (Droid Factory Line Look) is a newish mold!   He's bigger than Hasbro's, but the deco is different - not better, not worse.  Neither seems truly superior, but this one is bigger and a little bit more adorable thanks to the eye seeming to have more life in it.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,424: 2BB-2 (Droid Factory Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, November 8, 2017

Not from Hasbro!  Disney's 2BB-2 (Droid Factory Line Look) is pretty slick and, for some reason, have the lettering backward.  Go figure.  It's a neat robot that looks kind of like a globe of Earth.  Read on!

Disney's Build-A-Protocol Droid Now in Anaheim at Disneyland

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, October 28, 2017

3459 Thanks to the great Shannon, we now know Anaheim Disneyland has the Protocol Droids!  2 for $21.95. cheap.   I've got a bunch of these (thank you Shannon!) and reviews will be going into Figure of the Day semi-irregularly, as often as I can.   If you're in Southern California, perhaps a trip to the house of mouse is due soon.

There are multiple styles and colors, but not every droid is available in every color.  As far as we know there are no new styles available from Orlando, but if you discover otherwise please let us know!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,398: Vendor Droid (Black, Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, August 23, 2017

The glossy Vendor Droid (Black, Droid Factory) is available in Flordia now, and it's pretty sharp.  It's shiny, it's not something we've seen in a movie or TV show yet, and it looks like it could belong on the Death Star playset you'll probably never get.  But I digress.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,391: R2-C2 (Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, July 31, 2017

Check out the R2-C2 (Droid Factory)! Disney's take on Ziro's droid has different glasses, a different drink spigot, and uses that build-a-droid mold.   Hasbro has one too as an Entertainment Earth Exclusive, and I'd say just get both - Ziro probably needs a lot of drinks.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,390: R5-013 (Droid Factory)

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,389: R5-S9 (Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, July 24, 2017

Take a look at R5-S9 (Droid Factory), it's blue! The colors don't match the show perfectly, but it's also not an animated figure.  You can find this The Clone Wars-inspired robot at Disney theme parks in a 4-pack, and of course we're going to look at them all.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,386: Artoo-Deetoo (R2-D2, Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, July 12, 2017

Hey, it's R2-D2! This is sold on a vintage-esque cardback with C-3PO at Disney theme parks.  You've seen the mold before, but the dirt staining is new.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,385: C1-10P "Chopper" (Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, July 10, 2017

A few months ago, Disney surprised us by releasing C1-10P "Chopper" - with tons of extra parts and articulation.  It's a The Vintage Collection figure in all but name and packaging!  The arm pops out. You can pop more arms in to his dome.  You can change out third legs... he has third legs.   It's great, get oneRead on!

New Star Wars Release Dates: May is the new December

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 25, 2017

Variety has a big story on a bunch of new movie release dates from Disney.   Of particular note, the as-of-yet untitled Episode IX has been given a date of May 24, 2019.  For those of you keeping track, the as-of-yet-Untitled Han Solo movie is set for May 2018 (still), and that's only 6 months after The Last Jedi hits theaters in December of this year.  

We don't know exactly why they're changing seasons for Star Wars, although it might have something to do with getting the heck out of the way of Avatar sequels or positioning Star Wars to take over for Marvel, which may be undergoing a retool of its own.   Indiana Jones 5 was also delayed to July of 2020.

From a toy business perspective, this could actually be really good news for Star Wars fans.  

3 3/4-Inch Scale Sandcrawler Coming to Disney Parks?

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, April 14, 2017

A few years ago we got a glimpse into a pretty cool Starspeeder 1000 from Disney, showing that they can make vehicles for the theme parks when Hasbro wasn't so inclined.  Now according to Jedi News on Twitter, it looks like they're going to do a Sandcrawler.  Start saving, it's going to be an expensive year for droid fanatics.
