Concept Armor Boba Fett: 40,000 More En Route

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, September 20, 2014

Steven Anne is the toy buyer for Walgreens, and on Twitter he confirms solid cases of 8 Concept Armor Boba Fetts are coming in November.  The 6-inch Black Series action figure is in circulation now, potentially mixed with other Star Wars characters like Luke, Chewbacca, Darth Vader, and a redeco Sandtrooper which should be in stores elsewhere real soon.  He writes:

Six Second Toy Talk: Star Wars Rebels Mission Series The Ghost (Toys R Us Exclusive)

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, September 20, 2014

Toys R Us' new Hasbro exclusive Star Wars Rebels Mission Series The Ghost action figure set is making the rounds for $19.99 a pop if you can find it. (My closest store doesn't seem to have any yet.)  In it, you get Kanan Jarrus and Ezra Bridger - which may be identical to the single-carded versions, we'll see - plus an exclusive holographic Obi-Wan Kenobi.  It's quite nice.   I have 3 short videos (one for each) after the break.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,098: Obi-Wan Kenobi (Star Wars Rebels Secret Exclusive Figure 2014)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, September 15, 2014

For the first time in years, I'm actually really pleased with a holographic figure!   Obi-Wan Kenobi is exclusive to Toys R Us and started showing up in my neck of the woods over the weekend.  The set has 3 figures and is $19.99, and is arguably worth the asking price.   He has one point of articulation - and I'm scratching my head to name another full-size 3 3/4-inch humanoid Star Wars figure with only one joint - with a really wonderful sculpt and pose. And he's hollow.  Read on!

Star Wars Rebels - New Toys R Us Exclusive In Stores Now

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, September 13, 2014

Despite having just reset recently, Toys R Us stores are re-resetting with a new area filled with Marvel and Star Wars - Hasbro and LEGO mixed - near their usual spot in the stores.  New toys are hitting right now, including the Mission Series: The Ghost set pictured here.  The Ezra Bridger and Kanan Jarrus figures are assumed similar (if not identical) to the regular releases, but you'll note that there's a blacked-out window there for a third figure.

SDCC14: Hasbro Preview Night Image Bank

By Mike — Wednesday, July 23, 2014

Another SDCC Preview Night has come and gone and the attendance felt like a Saturday as crowd traffic was shoulder to shoulder and the Hasbro-nites (as well as resellers) flooded HasbroToyShop's booth with fervor and frustration. This being my 15th straight Comic-Con, long lines waiting for hyped exclusives are no longer as appealing. The time was better spent shooting photos of Hasbro's booth, and while the majority of it was already previewed at Toy Fair, there were a couple of reveals including a closer look at the SDCC exclusive Jabba, the Walgreen Prototype Fett, Target's pair of Star Wars Rebels vehicles, and a few from ToysRUs and Walmart.

StarWars.com Reveals Walgreens Exclusive Black Series Boba Fett

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 1, 2014

The article: Prototype Boba Fett Black Series Figure – Exclusive Reveal!

Supposedly (depending on the reports) between August and some time this fall, we're going to have access to a $19.99 white "prototype" 6-inch Boba Fett.  A mail-in version of this costume was made for the 3 3/4-inch scale a couple of years ago, so now we'll have access to a bigger version of this character.   Somehow, pre-orders will start at Comic-Con in a few weeks.

One Big Ship Deserves Another: Giant Millennium Falcon Coming

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, June 18, 2014

A giant X-wing is en route from Hasbro, and YodasNews.com shows it won't be alone.  A Millennium Falcon of generous proportions - seemingly the 2008 Big Millennium Falcon minus figure compatibility and electronics - is on the way.  The packaging boasts it's over 2 feet long, and Yoda's News says it may be a Walmart exclusive.  Click here to see it.

Deal: Amazon has Vintage Star Wars Droid 3-Pack for $5.98

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, December 25, 2013

Because there's always a chance to drop a price, Amazon marked down the formerly Target exclusive Star Wars Action Figure Special Droid Set to under six bucks with free Prime shipping.  That ain't bad - there are plenty of other items marked down too including $3 Black Series figures and other stuff, so while you wait for the ham or turkey or Denny's to be ready you might want to poke around to see what other deals you can find.

I just found Looper (Blu-Ray, good movie) and the Total Recall remake (haven't seen it) are $4.99 each, also with free Prime shipping.
