It's Maz Kanata!  She's in a boxed set, the Takodana Encounter, and is likely on clearance at a big box store near you right now.  Why pay full price? Go get one, it's worth it.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,270: Admiral Ackbar (The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, September 7, 2016

In what may be - but we hope isn't - his final appearance, we saw a new outfit for Admiral Ackbar which in turn inspired this new figure with an opening mouth!  He also has a new blaster, his trademark toy baton being sadly absent.   Want to see more?  Read on!

Hasbro Unveils Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Toys [Press Stuff]

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 1, 2016

Friends, foes, and frenemies are back from pretty much everybody this month as Rogue One: A Star Wars Story gives you a reason to go to the toy store over lunch once again. Because I am nothing if not tired and lazy, I am going to copy and paste Hasbro's press release below with new toy images of MicroMachines, 3 3/4-inch action figures, new NERF blasters, and some other stuff. Our sponsors are taking advance orders on 3 items, so here's a look at what you can expect later - with a few prices - after the jump.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,268: Captain Rex (The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 1, 2016

Hey, it's old man Captain Rex!  He's got a beard, less hair, and a little more mass than when he was fighting in the Clone Wars.  Oh, and he's got twin pistols, a helmet, and for some reason a rocket-launching spear.  Read on!

New Walmart Exclusive The Black Series 3 3/4-Inch Figures Revealed?

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, August 30, 2016

New Black Series - repacks!  According to many sources, and Robot Kingdom (a very popular exporter of Transformers overseas) there are 4 more The Black Series 3 3/4-inch action figures coming out as future Walmart exclusives.  You may already own them, but they’re good ones if you missed them.  While Hasbro has not confirmed this, it’s a slow news week so we’re going to assume this is all fact and  tell you about these previous releases.  Read on for more pictures, links to reviews of the original figures, and a list of who you can expect to find in stores in the next couple of months.

At this time, there are no Rogue One or The Force Awakens figures in these waves known to be coming.   This continues the previous The Black Series line's proud tradition of minimizing freshness in the 3 3/4-inch range.

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.

HasbroToyShop SDCC Exclusives Online, Mostly Sold Out

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, August 9, 2016

If you've been waiting, HasbroToyShop.com added its 2016 SDCC Exclusives including Star Wars Kylo Ren, Jyn Erso, and Obi-Wan Kenobi.  These are sold out.   However, some other items like Micronauts and Transformers remain.  Click here to see inventory.

SDCC Exclusives - Expect HasbroToyShop.com To Announce the Time Tuesday

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, July 25, 2016

Update: August 9!  Be there!

Correction: While we don't have a time or date yet, we're told to expect HasbroToyShop.com to post the date of sale for its remaining SDCC 2016 exclusives Tuesday.   This would include any remaining 6-inch Jyn Erso (standard figure with photos, unique packaging), Obi-Wan Kenobi (unique packaging and electornic accessory), and Rilo Kiley (Kylo Ren helmet, unmasked head, unique package, Vader helmet, base, flag).   At press time I do not have a confirmation that variant head Kylo Ren is or isn't coming out down the road - so you may want to keep reloading to get these, whenever that time may be.

No 3 3/4-inch figures were sold at the show.  (For Star Wars.)
