Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,612: Artoo-Deetoo (R2-D2, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, August 15, 2019

Filling a gap in the remakes of 12-backs, this Artoo-Deetoo (R2-D2, The Vintage Collection) gives you the package art you crave with the droid "bald spot" you  hoped that Hasbro would fix this time.  The dirt deco is cool, the build-a-droid mold is great, but is the Friar Tuck panel necessary? Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,611: Luke Skywalker (Crait, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, August 13, 2019

Check out the Luke Skywalker (Crait, The Vintage Collection)!  This cool figure is based on a sequence from The Last Jedi that was pretty spectacular - and odds are you won't be seeing it in too many stores these days.  Is it worth tracking down?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,610: Obi-Wan Kenobi (Padawan, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, August 8, 2019

Debuting at Star Wars Celebration this year, but also appearing in a box a couple of months ago, this Obi-Wan Kenobi (Padawan, The Black Series 6-Inch) is pretty great. The first prequel doesn't get a ot of toys, but this is a good one with an excellent portrait.... and sadly no cloth cloak accessory. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,609: Ezra Bridger (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, August 6, 2019

This is a good one.  Ezra Bridger (The Black Series 6-Inch) brings you the Rebels character from his basic Season 1 look with his helmet and lightsaber!  I hope you get one, it's a keeper.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,608: Chewbacca (Batuu, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, August 1, 2019

From Galaxy's Edge, it's a 6-inch Chewbacca!  The redeco of the 2015 figure has some different black paint operations, but is basically your standard issue The Force Awakens Chewbacca.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,607: BB-8 (Droid Depot, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 30, 2019

Now with more dirt!  BB-8 is no longer the baby in the world of droids, and this 2019 release from Galaxy's Edge shows signs of age.  He's a bit dirtier now, but is otherwise quite similar to the 2015 release you may have on your desk or a shelf... or in a box in a closet by now.  Should you upgrade?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,606: R2-D2 (Droid Depot, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, July 25, 2019

Another new figure from Disney's Galaxy's Edge, the R2-D2 (Droid Depot, The Black Series 6-Inch)  is a redeco! If you have an R2-D2 and are happy with it, this may not be necessary for you - but the wear and tear is unique to this figure.  Is it worth the trip to Anaheim to get yours?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,605: Porgs (Batuu, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 23, 2019

They love pizza! These Porgs (Batuu, The Black Series 6-Inch)  are exclusives at Galaxy's Edge in Anaheim right now - they're slightly different from previous Porgs in that one is a screaming Porg and the other is the sad-eyed Porg.  There's limited articulation and they come in a box with 3 other figures - 1 of which is new, 2 of which are slightly different.  Read on!

SDCC 2019 - Hasbro Star Wars The Black Series Boba Fett Helmet

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, July 20, 2019

3727 The coolest new thing Hasbro unveiled at Comic-Con this year - admittedly, it's a small pool from which to draw - was the Boba Fett Helmet which we were later told is coming in 2020.  This high-end toy helmet will make you glad if you sold your 2010ish The Clone Wars model recently. 

SDCC 2019 - Hasbro Tatooine is our Star Wars Diorama

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, July 19, 2019

3722 Jabba's palace in 6-inch scale, complete with a Rancor, and the Barge in 3 3/4-inch scale, were on display in full force! Packed with modern and classic figures as well as what we have been informed were custom figures, there's not a lot of new product here - but the diorama itself is pretty spectacular.  Check it out!

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, July 19, 2019

3712 So how was the Hasbro breakfast here in San Diego? Awesome.  But for Star Wars? There's nothing you haven't already seen. Hasbro showed off its Hyper Real Darth Vader and Black Series X-Wing Helmet along with a couple of Comic-Con exclusives.  We snapped a few photos, but you've seen these before.  New reveals were promised in this afternoon's panel, so stay tuned for more!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,604: C-3PO (Droid Depot, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, July 18, 2019

Just different enough to make you mad... and it's better, too!  This Galaxy's Edge  C-3PO (Droid Depot, The Black Series 6-Inch) uses 4-LOM's arms to give you an all-gold C-3PO with jointed elbows.  The previous versions were rather stiff - this is a big improvement.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,603: Chopper (C1-10P, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 16, 2019

While you're distracted waiting for Comic-Con news, read about Chopper (C1-10P, The Black Series 6-Inch.)  This is a good one - there are claw arms in the dome, a claw in the torso, swappable legs, and a puff of fake plastic smoke.  It pretty much has it all.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,602: Rey (Batuu, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, July 11, 2019

This Rey (Batuu, The Black Series 6-Inch) from Galaxy's Edge is something I did not much want, but is still pretty impressive.  While the original release of this figure is plentiful and cheap, Disney's boxed set version has that realistic face printing that does make a big difference.  If you're good with your Rey collection, you don't need it - but if you want the very best?  Read on!
