Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,572: Commander Pyre (Resistance line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 28, 2019

It's good as gold! The Commander Pyre (Resistance line look) seems to be selling in my local stores - along with the other figures! They're neat, and it's not like we get a Stormtrooper with a name every year.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,571: Major Vonreg (Resistance line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 26, 2019

Sort of a futuristic throwback, Major Vonreg (Resistance line look) is a skinny, brightly-colored figure that looks like he might have been at home in the 1980s Droids line - so you know I love it.  But will you?   Yes.  It's red, it's a pilot, and it's probably the only figure we'll see of this guy.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,570: Stormtrooper (Mimban, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 21, 2019

If you can find it, now that it's finally hitting shelves at Walmarts, this Stormtrooper (Mimban, The Vintage Collection) is fantastic.  Articulation is above par, it has two blasters, there's a cloth cape, and it's one of the best things going right now.  Again - provided you can find it.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,569: General Grievous (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 19, 2019

This General Grievous (The Black Series 6-Inch) is shipping now, and it's pretty fancy.  Hasbro left off the symbol on his cape, but did add pockets to store lightsabers in the lining.   It looks good, but lacks some of the articulation of the admittedly not-so-elegant 3 3/4-inch The Vintage Collection release from a few years ago.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,568: Jarek Yaeger (Resistance line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 14, 2019

You probably should go run out and buy this Jarek Yaeger (Resistance line look)  if you see it.  It's a good human figure, with a good droid and a swappable head helmet accessory.  I don't assume there will be many more waves of Resistance, so go ahead and get the set unless you hate 1980s-style articulation that really works.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,567: Bucket R1-J5 (Resistance line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 12, 2019

Look, I like droids. So do you.  You already know you want and indeed need the Bucket R1-J5 (Resistance line look), which has a helmet instead of a dome.  It's awesome.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,566: Kaz Xiono (Resistance line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 7, 2019

Starring in Resistance is Kaz Xiono (Resistance line look)!  You're probably not watching the show, but Hasbro did a good job with the figure.  It has a nice silhouette, stands and sits well, and feels like a classic Kenner action figure (made in 2019.)  The face paint is really good too - read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,565: Imperial Patrol Trooper (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 5, 2019

I really like the Imperial Patrol Trooper (The Black Series 6-Inch).  You can see elements of other troopers in here, like shins from various Rogue One troopers, a helmet that looks like a mutant Stormtrooper, and body armor that's vaguely recalling the 1983 Biker Scouts.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,564: Rio Durant (Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, February 28, 2019

This Rio Durant (Solo: A Star Wars Story line look) is a little tough to find, but you can still grab it if you're able to find one.  He has removable goggles, two blasters, and a ton of articulation.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,563: Val (Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, February 26, 2019

It's Val!  As Force Link 2.0 fades into memory, the last wave is something you should chase down - there were some good figures in this one.  Val turned out particularly well, and as the only 3 3/4-inch Val you probably should go ahead and get one. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,562: Stormtrooper (Galaxy of Adventures)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, February 21, 2019

This Stormtrooper (Galaxy of Adventures) is in tubes and possibly in a store near you. The detail and plastic are above and beyond what we've seen in the past, as is his height.   It's pretty spectacuar, and you're being charged accordingly.  Is it worth it?  Yes.  Is it worth army building at that price?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,561: L3-37 (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, February 19, 2019

This L3-37 (The Black Series 6-Inch)  is a nifty release from Solo: A Star Wars Story. She has a lot of astromech parts and is a self-made bot according to lore!  The articulation is good, the deco is nice, and the design is totally unique.  Read on!

Toy Fair 2019 - Hasbro Star Wars: The Retro Collection

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, February 16, 2019

Star Wars goes Kenner! Six reissues and one new vintage-style "ReAction"-esque figure are seemingly exclusive to Target, and of course sold out preorders in seconds. Hopefully Target and Hasbro don't pull a Spinosaurus and keep them coming all year long!

Toy Fair 2019 - Hasbro Star Wars: The Black Series

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, February 16, 2019

Star Wars: The Black Series! The 6-inch line showed very little you hadn't seen (or seen hinted at) before. The presentation had Doctor Aphra and her droids, plus the previously seen Chopper and Ezra Bridger. More surprising were 20th Anniversary Episode I "vintage" packaging for Celebration in Chicago.

Toy Fair 2019 - Hasbro Gets Hyperreal

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, February 16, 2019

Star Wars gets too real! $80 for Hasbro's most decked-out Darth Vader ever. A metal skeleton boasting more articulation than ever before inside a soft rubber skin makes one wonder what that means for long-term viability, but the A+ deco and optional hands might make you just buy it anyway.
