Kenner The Mandalorian Figures Wave 1 - 11% Off at Entertainment Earth

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, June 22, 2022

Star Wars The Mandalorian The Retro Collection Action Figures Wave 1 Case of 8This is an affiliate link for the Star Wars The Mandalorian The Retro Collection Action Figures Wave 1 Case of 8 for 78.00, but really, this post is about me trying to convince you to try out Kenner figures.

I want to live in a world with more of them. Back in the 1970s fans of Star Wars had no TV series, no computer games, or even VCRs in most cases. You could see comics or novels, or maybe some Super 8 reels, but most likely your platform of choice for living Star Wars at home were Kenner's $2 3 3/4-inch action figures. (I remember seeing them as high as $4.99 at Long's Drug Stores - which I paid, to get my Wicket - back around 1984. Highway robbery.)

For fans over 40, it's a pretty safe bet those action figures are a big part of why they're Star Wars fans today - either they held on to theirs with an iron grip, or their parents forced them to sell them, and they've been chasing them down ever since. I was the former - and I bought figures from the latter at garage sales.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,935: Boba Fett (Morak, The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, June 21, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Boba Fett (Morak, The Retro Collection). This is one of my favorite figures in years - it incorporates elements of the 1979 Kenner figure, like his unique backpack design, while also modernizing it with an all-new but still appropriately retro helmet sculpt and coloring. If you're in your 40s - or maybe late 30s - this could be a fun throwback to put with your other childhood toys. I don't know if younger fans will flock to this one, but it hasn't left my general workspace since getting it nearly a month ago. I'd strongly recommend it if Kenner toys were ever on your wish list as a child. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,934: Artoo-Deetoo (R2-D2, Droids, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, June 16, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Artoo-Deetoo (R2-D2, Droids, The Vintage Collection). It's a repaint of the 2010 movie figure, which captures the spirit of the 1985 original which was also a movie repaint. The chest panel doesn't close perfectly, but he has a coin, he looks cool, and you may find him in a Target right now. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,933: Ahsoka Tano (& Grogu, The Vintage Collection Deluxe)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, June 14, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Ahsoka Tano (& Grogu, The Vintage Collection Deluxe). It's a Walmart exclusive figure you just got, with lots of extra gear, and I'd say it's a better figure - get this one to open, skip opening the carded one. She has a poncho, critter pals, and other gear. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,928: Obi-Wan Kenobi (2022 Redux, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, May 26, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Obi-Wan Kenobi (2022 Redux, The Vintage Collection). It's a repaint of a fairly old figure, and it arguably looks a little better - but, again, it is a figure from 2011. The belt has a place to hang his communicator and his lightsaber is cool, but should you track one down online? Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,927: Ahsoka Tano (Corvus, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, May 24, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Ahsoka Tano (Corvus, The Vintage Collection). She's awesome! This is the mass-retail release, Walmart has an exclusive version. This figure has one of Hasbro's very best head sculpts, with amazing paint and tip-top articulation. Even if you're not an Ahsoka fan (and you should be one), I'd suggest getting this figure (or playing with a friend's) to see just how far Hasbro has come in making these figures truly amazing in recent waves. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,926: Death Watch Mandalorian (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, May 19, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Death Watch Mandalorian (The Vintage Collection). It's a new sculpt and one of Habsro's very best. The range of motion is great, the center of gravity is good, and the joints move pretty freely so you won't feel "stuck" in a weird position. You'll love it. Buy an army. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,925: Fennec Shand (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, May 17, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Fennec Shand (The Vintage Collection). This is one of the better figures - great likeness, excellent articulation, this is a figure that shows considerable improvement over the figures we got just five to ten years ago. You should get this one - it's a good character, a good costume, and a fantastic figure that will put a lot of other releases to shame. Read on!
