NYCC: New Galactic Heroes Star Wars Vehicles and Figures

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 6, 2016

New Galactic Heroes!  Hasbro was kind enough to send along some of their NYCC reveals.  New York Comic Con has a press event running alongside the show.  Unmasked Kylo Ren vs. Rey, Chewbacca vs. First Order TIE Pilot, and an AT-AT were show!  There are big weapons, clever gimmicks, and bigger, jointed figures that you probably previously also saw as Jedi Force a few years ago.  More pictures after the jump?  Sure!  But you can also see all of this stuff on our Tumblr. Follow us there for more!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,266: Hassk Thug (The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, August 26, 2016

Skunk ape?  Balding ape?  Varmik?  It's the Hassk Thug, a McQuarrie-inspired triplet which is one of very few denizens of the castle on Takodana to get a figure.   It's one of those things fans need to start demanding, like a Lin-Manuel Miranda for some reason or another.  Anyway, how is he?  I'd say get one, but read on to see what I wrote in the review.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,265: Kylo Ren Unmasked (The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, August 25, 2016

We're back - but not every day!   I gotta sleep once in a while.  Let's look at the nifty Kylo Ren Unmasked, released earlier this year and unlikely to be at a store near you.  He was popular.   He's also more than an old body with a new head - Hasbro did the work on this one.

Kmart Star Wars Exclusive Rey Figure Hitting Retail Stores Now

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, April 16, 2016

She's out!  Kmart's Rey (Starkiller Base) 6-inch The Black Series action figure is making the rounds and is being placed on shelves as I write this.  Might your one or two remaining stores have them?  You'll have to go look, because the product finder on their web site isn't working properly.   Each figure is $24.99, assuming of course you find one.  I located one at one of the final Mart of K outposts in Phoenix, AZ this afternoon.

First Impressions: Hasbro's Star Wars Takodana Encounter Action Figure Set

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 5, 2016

3079 We'll be tackling these - or at least one of these - in Figure of the Day very soon, but it seemed prudent to give you the lowdown on this awesome gift set now just in case you were waffling over buying it or just a couple of single figures.   This 4-pack costs less than 3 individual figures at most stores, plus sports one exclusive figure and accessories to boot.  When you see the Takodana Encounter you'll say "Octopus, right?"  (I think that's what it is, I never took Japanese.)

If you like you can order this item at our sponsor Entertainment Earth or on Amazon.com.

This action figure set comes in a box that's pretty much the same size and shape as last year's "Digital Release" boxed sets for all six films - on a shelf, this would look very nice next to them.   In it you'll find Finn (repack of individual figure), Rey (repack of individual figure), BB-8 (the Scavengers version), and Maz Kanata (new).  The two "combine weapons" are gone, but instead you'll find a lightsaber hilt, a lightsaber, and a trunk - the perfect place to store your priceless religious heirlooms in the basement of a bar.  In short: you'll be wanting one.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,255: Constable Zuvio (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, December 9, 2015

Hey, it's Constable Zuvio!  He has a magnificent paint job on his armor, and we know absolutely nothing about him in the movie yet.  Well.  With that, I'm taking a FOTD break because I actually would like to see the movie before commenting any more on these - so read on, for what it's worth.

Kmart Star Wars Kylo Ren Exclusive - In Stock Now! Maybe!

Elite!  The red-striped First Order TIE Fighter Pilot is the only 6-inch TIE Pilot from the new movie you can own today - but the non-striped version is up for pre-order at fine toy stores everywhere.  This one, however, comes with a TIE Fighter with wings so tall they can black out the sun.  Read on!
