Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,806: Cad Bane (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 27, 2021

Today in Figure of the Day, it's a good one: Cad Bane (The Black Series 6-Inch). This one was available by himself or in a set with Todo 360, end either one is really excellent if you can find them. Cad Bane's hat comes off, he has two blasters, and each and every joint seems to be perfectly hidden in his costume. This is one of the best figures from last year, so get one when you see one. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,800: Ben (Obi-Wan) Kenobi (Kenner, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 13, 2021

A blast from the past from right now: Ben (Obi-Wan) Kenobi (Kenner, The Black Series 6-Inch). This one takes an existing mold, and paints it in 1978 colors. The cloth cape is gone, replaced by a vinyl cape - which works surprisingly well. This is absolutely more of an art piece or a display piece - and it's seemingly sold out for a while. Read on!

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 2,784: 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!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,782: Ahsoka Tano (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 2, 2021

Today in Figure of the Day: Ahsoka Tano (The Black Series 6-Inch). She's a Walmart exclusive that I never actually saw in a store - presumably some made it to stores, but I got mine online. Maybe there's more to be had - it's tough to tell. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,780: Incinerator Trooper (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, February 23, 2021

Today in Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day: Incinerator Trooper (The Vintage Collection). You can get a big one, or at Walmart, you can get the smaller exclusive one. It's good, it has fire with it. It doesn't have the Imperial cog on the backpack, though, but I'd still say get it if you're a fan of either The Force Unleashed or The Mandalorian. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,779: Din Djarin (with The Child, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, February 18, 2021

Today in Figure of the Day: Din Djarin (with The Child, The Vintage Collection). It's a retool with tons of dirt and damage, an unmasked head, an ice cream maker, beskar ingots, and tons of other goodies. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,777: The Child (with Din Djarin, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, February 11, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: The Child (with Din Djarin, The Vintage Collection). It's a positively tiny little gremlin with jointed arms and a neck. The paint is good, the sculpt is good, and you probably want it if you don't already have one in your house. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,771: Electrostaff Purge Trooper (Jedi: Fallen Order, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, January 21, 2021

Let's look at the Electrostaff Purge Trooper (The Black Series 6-Inch). The gummy bolts don't like to stay put - so expect to lose those under a couch. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,768: Death Trooper (Credit Collection, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, January 12, 2021

I'm very fond of the Death Trooper (Credit Collection, The Black Series 6-Inch) - the black armored trooper from Rogue One is back, splattered with orange and purple as you saw in the end credit sequence.  For fans of designer toys, this Amazon-exclusive is pretty gorgeous - but you might be perfectly happy with the figure you bought a few years ago all in black.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,764: Mandalorian Super Commando (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 29, 2020

Today let's look at this Mandalorian Super Commando (The Black Series 6-Inch). He's a Jango retool and absolutely worth tracking down. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,759: R5-P8 (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 10, 2020

Somehow easier to get than the mold from which he was repainted, R5-P8 (The Black Series 6-Inch) has teeth and lots of dirt.  He doesn't have the head blaster, but hey, new droid at Target.  It might even be in stock right now.  Read on!
