Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,120: R5-D4 (The Mandalorian, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 28, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: R5-D4 (The Mandalorian, The Vintage Collection). This looks a lot like a figure from 12 years ago, at about twice the price, but is cheaper than buying that release in today's market. It lacks The Mandalorian-specific deco, but if you have a Sandcrawler that needs droids? This is good. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,119: R5-D4 (The Mandalorian, The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 26, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: R5-D4 (The Mandalorian, The Black Series). There was a new R2-D2 mold last year, and this R5-D4 figure uses it - with a bad motivator, and a new dome. It's clean, and lacks the Mando-specific dirt patterns. But other than that, it's a perfectly nice droid figure. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,118: The Mandalorian (Epic Hero Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 21, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: The Mandalorian (Epic Hero Series). This is a very nice figure - it doesn't have all of the deco as other similarly sized figures, but it's a better figure. The exaggerated bright silver Beskar armor is gorgeous, the Darksaber is fantastic, the pistol ain't bad, and the cape is a clip-on around the neck. He can fit in your The Vintage Collection vehicles, too. He's also really easy to find at Walmart as they seem to be getting solid cases of just Mando, and also Darth Vader, but Mando is the better figure. Read on!

Hasbro Fanstream for Star Wars - March 20, 2024 Edition

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,117: Ahsoka Tano (Epic Hero Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 19, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Ahsoka Tano (Epic Hero Series). This is a new mold, and I've seen her online and in the cardboard Easter dumps at Walmart - and this is a great figure. Other than the lack of a waist joint, she feels like a sturdy 1990s figure with nice clear lightsabers, the ability to stand easily, and freely moving joints. In short, this one is a toy first and is all the better for it. I'd recommend picking her up - the face sculpt is really excellent. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,115: Paige (Resistance Gunner, The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 12, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Paige (Resistance Gunner, The Last Jedi Line Look). In my never-ending quest to alienate the remaining readers of this site, I went to my pile of unopened figures and pulled out this gem from 2017. She's good - you skipped her and when you see her at a shop, she's not worth anything, but this is a good figure. Take a look at the removable helmet, the perfectly painted eyes, the removable oxygen mask, and the fine sculpting. The limbs all swing nicely and she stands with no problems. All parties involved did an amazing job having this figure ready for Force Friday The Last Jedi edition, before anybody knew she had no lines in the movie and the vehicle she was in wouldn't get a toy. Odds are you won't track her down if you haven't already done so, but if you stumble on her? This is a well-made figure. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,114: Yak Face (The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 7, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Yak Face (The Retro Collection). Depending on your age and when you got into these toys, this might be considered to be an unattainable grail - and Hasbro reissued it last year, making it available to most Americans for the first time at regular retail prices. He's a well-made replica that looks and plays great - the colors are a little tweaked, but considering buying a 6-pack of figures is probably cheaper than an unpackaged Yak Face has been for most collectors' careers, that's probably a worthwhile purchase. Or it would be, had it not already sold out. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,113: Princess Kneesaa (Ewoks Cartoon, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 5, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Princess Kneesaa (Ewoks Cartoon, The Vintage Collection). This is a redeco, with slightly different gear - one hood is missing. But you get a bag and a coin that you didn't get on the last release. The packaging is nice, at least. Read on!

Hasbro Cost-Cutting Incoming, Says WSJ

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, February 29, 2024

If no news is good news, the Wall Street Journal has news. Hasbro’s CFO Sharpens Focus on Cost Savings as Toy Shoppers Pull Back does not necessarily sound like great news, although if Hasbro is reading I'll take care to remind them that The Retro Collection has minimal parts, fewer elements to assemble, and relatively simple packaging.

The article says: "[Hasbro CFO Gina Goetter] pointed to the company’s recent review of Nerf products, noting that the company analyzed everything from the thickness of the plastic it uses to the type of packaging, and compared those costs to competitors’. At every step of the Nerf production process, the company found, it was spending more than its rivals, Goetter said."

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,112: Tusken Chieftan (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, February 29, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Tusken Chieftan (The Black Series). He uses parts of the old Tusken Raider from about seven years ago, but most of what you'll actually see are new parts, with new robes, and some decent paint.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,111: Sabine Wren (Epic Hero Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, February 27, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Sabine Wren (Epic Hero Series). This is the one that you might actually find in a store near you, and she has a decent array of gear - but no blasters. She is a deluxe release, so they're charging more for her (backpack, shield) but it's still a pretty nice figure and feels like a durable toy. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,109: Mon Mothma (The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, February 20, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Mon Mothma (The Retro Collection). Why does she have a blaster? I have no idea - most figures in the 1980s would have, but Anakin didn't, so it's probably just for fun. Read on!
