Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,813: Han Solo (6-Inch Value Figure, Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, May 13, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Han Solo (6-Inch Value Figure, Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look). This $5 figure was made in 2018, but I never saw them in stores until recently - for all I know they were sitting in a warehouse before being sold in the USA at Five Below stores. They were available internationally, and also seen in board room presentations if you were invited to the right meetings. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,812: The Mandalorian (The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, May 11, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog, it's the kind of figure I've been waiting for - and it's been a very long time. The Mandalorian (The Retro Collection)! It's great. Because the 1980s never ended for some of us, Hasbro made The Mandalorian figures that look like Kenner releases. From 1981. I'm not quite sure why they went with a vinyl cape for a post-ROTJ release, but it's still neat with bright colors and two great blasters. If you see it, especially for ten bucks, and you're old? This is a must-buy figure. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,810: The Mandalorian (6-Inch Value Figure, Black Logo Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, May 6, 2021

Probably at a store near you, just not in the toy aisles: The Mandalorian (6-Inch Value Figure, Black Logo Line Look). This $5 figure stands tall and may be hidden around your feet at a checklane at a Walmart near you. I suggest going at night when the lanes are mostly empty - each one has different stuff in it, so next to the candy bars and batteries might be a figure with four joints and surprisingly nice paint for the asking price.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,808: The Child (6-Inch Value Figure, Black Logo Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, May 3, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day column, which may well be eternal: The Child (6-Inch Value Figure, Black Logo Line Look). It's a 6-inch scale figure that sells for under $5 at Walmart, but it's also about 1/2-inch bigger than The Black Series The Child. And half the price. For your money, this is one of the better values out there for a figure of this particular character - and we'll look at his Mandalorian companion later this week, too. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,807: Battle Droid (2021, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, April 29, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Battle Droid (2021, The Vintage Collection). This one looks a lot like a figure from 10 years ago with more printed silver scuffing, but there's so much of it that it almost looks like a pearlescent sheen. It's still a good mold, minus the fact that it will need support above the waist if you plan for a long-term display. Read on!

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 2,805: Zutton (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, April 26, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Zutton (The Vintage Collection). This mold was previously sold as a Target exclusive in a 3-pack a few years ago, and now it's back! At first glance it's pretty much the same as that first release. At a longer glance, it's also pretty much the same as the first release with a bit more of a paint wipe and slightly glossier hair. If you have the first version, you probably don't need the new one - but it's worth a look anyway. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,803: Boba Fett (Deluxe ROTJ, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 20, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Boba Fett (Deluxe ROTJ, The Black Series 6-Inch). This one ships in a case by himself - that's good! But he's $30 - that's bad. But he comes with a bonus sawed-off blaster - that's good! But his capture claw gauntlet is just some weird clip-on bracelet - that's bad. Can we read on now?

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,802: Shoretrooper (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, April 19, 2021

It's old, but new, but pretty much the same as the old one: Shoretrooper (The Black Series 6-Inch). It's a rerelease! The 2021 Archive figure looks a lot like the 2016 Walmart-exclusive version, but the damage deco is a little different. If you have the first release, you probably don't need this one unless you're army-building and want some subtle variety in your troops. 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 2,798: Greef Karga (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, April 8, 2021

Today in Figure of the Day: Greef Karga (The Vintage Collection). He's based on the season two costume, which looks great - that means he traded the mustache for a beard, and it's a little thin on this figure. Still, the costume translates nicely to a toy and the range of motion is pretty good considering his robes. The blaster has a working holster, too. Read on!
