Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,006

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, February 20, 2013

This Battle Droid was the best of breed in the big MTT box last year, and will no doubt make many returns in Saga Legends and elsewhere as the new, 5-jointed mold.  It's pretty good.  It's not amazing, but it's interesting to say the least.  Want to know more?

One of the tougher figures to find from 2012 (and that's saying something), this Imperial Navy Trooper is a pretty good update to the uniquely helmeted action figure.  Since it isn't Kenner Grey it's arguably deserving of at least one more repaint, should the stars align, but how is this release?

Hasbro: 2013 Star Tours Multi-Packs

By Mike — Tuesday, February 19, 2013

Hasbro announces two new Star Tours exclusive multi-packs that will be available beginning in May 2013 at Walt Disney Hollywood Studios in Orlando (to debut for Star Wars Weekends) and at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim soon thereafter.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,004

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, February 18, 2013

We ran this Green R5-Series Astromech Droid through the total perspective vortex and it seems to have come out just fine.  This is a robot who really knows his place in the Universe, and that place is as a theme park exclusive that you're probably sick of reading about  by now. (This is just a hunch.)

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,003

Under-collected, underappreciated, and cheap, figures like this Ikopi are a cheap thrill.  The little creatures have no articulation but are the only representations of numerous wildlife in plastic.  If you're like me and you loved the designs of The Phantom Menace a great deal, you'll find a lot to like in this small line of little animal figures.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,002

Check out Obi-Wan Kenobi from last year's MTT.  (Which was selling on Amazon for $49!  Not bad for a big vehicle.)  It's a mix of parts from older figures, but isn't necessarily new enough to buy.  The whole package is amazing, but just Obi-Wan? 

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,001

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, February 13, 2013

I just got back from New York, where snow, being thrown out of a cab, and posting FOTD #2,000 didn't keep me down!  So today you get Nien Nunb, who may be available cheaply online right now.  You'll have to check.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,000!

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, February 12, 2013

Welcome to FOTD #2,000!  If you told me back in 2006 that I'd still be writing this column today, I would probably have told you to slap me.  But we're all still here, and we're looking at Jocasta Nu because why the heck not.  This online exclusive is new-ish and has a ton of gear.  

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,999

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, February 11, 2013

Time marches on and Jar Jar Binks is, appropriately, our 1,999th entry of Figure of the Day.  He has more articulation than any other 3 3/4-inch scale version of the character, but the sculpt may not be as fun.  Or is it?

Hasbro Toy Fair 2013: The Empire Strikes Black (Series)

By Mike — Sunday, February 10, 2013

TOP NEWS: "Always in motion, the future is," and for the past 6 months, there has been a lot of big news for the franchise. The announcement of new Star Wars films, changing play habits, and increasing production costs have prompted Hasbro to re-align their strategy for 2013 by cancelling Droid Factory, shortening the retail cycle for the Yoda Line look, and introducing two new action figure assortments with one targeted towards adult collectors and the other towards children.

Toy Fair 2013: Anakin To Vader Demo Video

By Mike — Saturday, February 9, 2013

Here is a demo video of the upcoming Anakin to Darth Vader 12 inch action figure from Hasbro. After viewing this in person, it's easy to see how kids (and even some adults) will get a kick out of its features. The voice changes from Anakin to Vader by attaching the armor and the lightsaber color also switches from blue to red. Check it out after the jump!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,998

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, February 8, 2013

Wait, stop! Don't skip this one yet!  This Yellow R7-Series Astromech Droid is not 2008's R7-Z0.  Nope, it's actually yellower and has a different pattern on the dome.  It's cool!  Really!  Oh, and it's at Disney Hollywood Studios.  So... maybe you can get one.

Toy Fair 2013: Galactic Hunter Coverage Begins Saturday

By Mike — Thursday, February 7, 2013

It's that time again, and yes, time for another cold and snowy weekend covering the American International Toy Fair in New York City. This is our tenth year covering the show as Galactic Hunter, and this time it feels a little different because we don't know what to expect from Hasbro.
