Hasbro Confirms 6-Inch Clone Trooper Commander Gree as Toys R Us Exclusive

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, April 13, 2017

The info just keeps rolling in!  Hasbro's PR department informed us that Commander Gree is coming to Toys R Us as an exclusive. When? We don't know, but the 6-inch The Black Series figure looks pretty sharp.

More information as we have it - and it's nice to see the prequels getting some love out there.

New Toy Line, Animation, Books for Girls: Star Wars Forces of Destiny

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, April 12, 2017

Tonight, the world can now see Star Wars: Forces of Destiny.   If you're familiar with Monster High, it's kind of like that - a new line of Adventure Dolls joined by short animation, but with the added benefit fo many of the original players voicing the characters.  We've got pictures, a video clip, and a full press release.  The line focuses primarily on the women of Star Wars, mercifully expanded beyond two roles thanks to the animation of the 2000s and the new Disney-era movies, as well as their adorable sidekicks.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,360: R2-F2 (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, April 12, 2017

Biggs' droid R2-F2 has a new name - and slightly different deco!  Droid stuff seems to change under the new regime, but the one thing that never changes is that this is a repaint.  Did you get yours?  As 6-inch figures go, it's pretty sharp.  Read on!

Celebration Orlando Line Issues - How To Get X-Wing Luke

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, April 12, 2017

Back in 2013 Hasbro released the very first 6-inch The Black Series figures to mixed reviews - they were great, but a lot of fans opted out and that lead to cheap clearance prices on Amazon within a few months.   Fast-forward to today, and people are upset they missed a few of those early figures.  Hasbro is reissuing X-Wing Pilot Luke Skywalker for Star Wars Celebration this weekend, and there's a big process about how to line up to get yours.

The Force Awakens Toys Continue for The Last Jedi

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 11, 2017

Sci-fi supersite io9 posted a preview of a new 6-inch The Black Series Rey's Speeder!  This sizable, $60 vehicle should be out later this year and will undoubtedly be on display in Orlando at Star Wars Celebration this weekend.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,359: Finn (The Force Awakens Value 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, April 10, 2017

I'd bet that you don't have this particular Finn figure.   I got it from Mexico, it was also sold in Australia and presumably a few other countries - but not the USA.   It's a 6-inch "value" figure, and that The Force Awakens premiere assortment from 2005 hasn't shipped here.  Finn has 4 joints and a black blaster in his fist - is he nifty enough to buy?  Read on!

99 Cents Only - Star Wars Dumping Ground

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, April 9, 2017

If you  have the 99 Cents Only store chain in your area, take a look inside.  Hasbro's dumping the The Force Awakens MicroMachines head playsets there for $4.99, and Hot Wheels Carships and Character Cars are there for 99 cents - I've seen Royal Guards, the Ghost, Poe's X-Wing, and others I haven't previously seen in circulation at the big box stores much/at all.  Good hunting!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,358: Imperial Hovertank Pilot (Rogue One Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, April 5, 2017

Check out the 3 3/4-inch Imperial Hovertank Pilot!  It's pretty sweet.  You didn't miss the tank, because as of yet there isn't one - maybe it'll appear in a future movie line.  At least you've got a pilot to staff it if/when it ever comes!  Read on.

Today's the day!  Without too much fuss, Target's exclusive AT-ACT Driver has joined the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story DVD and Blu-Ray at retail today.   It's worth noting Target has an exclusive deluxe Blu-Ray set with bonus content as well, and the price may vary.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,357: First Order Snowtrooper (The Force Awakens Value 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 4, 2017

This 6-inch First Order Snowtrooper is not the Black Series figure - it has only 4 joints and was sold outside the USA.  It's neat!  Hopefully Hasbro brings it over hear some day, for now it's eBay or bust.  Read on!

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 30, 2017

It's Saw Gerrera! Exclusive to the Jedha Revolt 4-pack, this figure is loaded with detail, big hair, and a couple of accessories.  If you didn't get one, you'll probably be sorry in a couple of years.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,355: Edrio Two Tubes (Rogue One Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 28, 2017

As named on the Jedha Revolt box, Edrio Two Tubes is a pretty good action figure.  He can stand and sit, he has exquisite sculpting - the head in particular - and he has superior painting.  The deco may not be entirely as accurate or as dark as the character in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, but he does have the pilot equipment and rfile you're going to want.  Hopefully you track this one down and don't miss it, because he's part of a worthwhile set.  Read on!
