Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,081: Obi-Wan Kenobi (Saga Legends 2014)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, June 2, 2014

We're back! (A Dinosaur's story.)  This Obi-Wan Kenobi is today's Star Wars Figure of the Day!  It just hit Canada and, so far, seemingly nowhere else.  This wave's absence from store shelves and online pre-sells is conspicuous so far, but thankfully a kind soul managed to help me get a set to show all of you.

Star Wars MTT - $39.99 at TJ Maxx

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 4, 2014

Patrick in Easton, PA wrote in to say he found the MTT Multi-Troop Transport for a mere $39.99 at his local TJ Maxx store!  (They share similar toy inventory with Marshalls.)   It's probably worth taking a look in your area if you're still in the market for this beast - I even saw one at my closest Walmart today, still at around $90 though. Good hunting!

While not fun enough to warrant $130, the figures alone are probably worth the $40 - you get some slug Battle Droids, some decent droids, plus Obi-Wan Kenobi and a ton of guns in this box.

Star Wars Mission Series Utapau, Bespin Packs Coming

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, January 22, 2014

Further proving that the "rumor" list wasn't a rumor list, Andrew's Toyz posted shots of Mission Series Utapau and Mission Series Bespin to Facebook.  The good news for newcomers is that these are great-looking figures.  For those of us who have been here, it seems Obi-Wan Kenobi may be the same as the single-carded figure, and Darth Vader appears to be a repack of last year's Mission Star Destroyer.  On the bright side, there's a new Bespin Luke and General Grievous in here.
