Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,189: First Order Stormtrooper (Snow/Giant Rifle, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 8, 2015

The first First Order Stormtrooper has a big gun - other versions are coming, but the figures are generally the same.  This one comes with a giant Nerf-like gun, and I quite like it.   Will you?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,188: First Order TIE Fighter Pilot (Space, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, September 7, 2015

The First Order TIE Fighter Pilot looks a heck of a lot like the Imperial TIE Fighter Pilot - same basic colors, same basic layout.  It's less bulky, though, and other differences make this one an interesting take on the figure we've all crammed in vehicles since the first one in 1982.  Read on!

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Hasbro Action Figure Checklist

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, September 6, 2015

A lot of stuff is out already - some of which in small numbers.   We scooped together all the information we have to bring you the Star Wars: The Force Awakens Hasbro Action Figure Checklist.   In it, you'll find a new definition of suffering as you drive around your city to collect these toys over a thousand years.   Names of characters not necessarily in your lexicon may appear and as such, you should sign off the Internet for the next four months if you want to go in to the movie clean - product names are discussed in the checklist after the jump.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,187: Luke Skywalker (Bespin / Jungle, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, September 6, 2015

They can't all be winners, but this figure is crucial if you want to assemble the Jungle cluster of "Combine Weapons."   The Luke Skywalker (Bespin / Jungle, The Force Awakens) is a perfectly nice figure, but a) you probably own it, and b) the backpack isn't enough to make the new, added backpack hole very interesting.  It may also amuse you to know that the backpack has more joints than the action figure.  Read on!

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Hasbro and Action Figure Exclusive Checklist

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, September 5, 2015

What's out? What's coming? And where should you be hunting? Right now, it's a little murky - but it looks like no exclusives have really hit except the retail release of the SDCC Rancor Pit set at Toys R Us.  A whole smattering of things are coming, and I compiled a list for you.  Found something I haven't?  Let me know!   We'll get it added.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,186: Captain Phasma (Buzzsaw, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, September 5, 2015

While same figure/different weapons are popping up, so far there's only one 3 3/4-inch Captain Phasma.   There's also a 6-inch one - but that's hard to find so far.  She's tall, she's silver, but - surprisingly - only her chest is painted. The limbs and head are molded in a silvery plastic.  Read on!

Six Second Toy Talk: Star Wars The Force Awakens Jungle/Space Captain Phasma Action Figure

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, September 4, 2015


Hey, it's Captain Phasma! Watch this awesome review, or don't. Get your The Force Awakens stuff at Entertainment Earth.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,185: Kylo Ren (Jungle/Claw, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 3, 2015

We still haven't seen everything - but there are many Kylo Ren action figures.  Variant accessories may be a thing now, so keep your peepers peeled.  This one has a bear trap of sorts, but the figure itself has a great sculpt, good deco, and stands up just fine.  It's eight bucks, and you can order it at Entertainment Earth or elsewhere.  Read on!

Amazon - New Stormtrooper Exclusive 6-Inch and 3 3/4-Inch Sets

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 3, 2015

Amazon listed two (so far) new exclusive sets on 9/3.   They are:

Star Wars The Force Awakens 3.75-Inch Figure Troop Builder 6-Pack - actually has 7 figures. Captain Phasma is joined by uniquely armored Stormtroopers and Snowtroopers.  The fact that it is not actually a six pack once again robs me of Black Flag jokes.

Star Wars The Black Series 6-Inch Stormtrooper 4-Pack - This is the rumored "evolution" set. Each figure is unique - Stormtrooper has dirty deco, Episode 7 Stormtrooper has a unique pauldron, the Episode III Clone Trooper debuts in this set, and the AOTC yellow Clone Captain is new.

Walmart Gets More Star Wars Waves of 3 3/4-Inch The Black Series

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 3, 2015

There's always hope!  Walmart has 3 figures up for grabs now and more are coming.  Tonight you can order Luke Skywalker (dirty boot redeco recolor of 2012 Vintage Blu-Ray Jedi Luke), Darth Vader (repack, possible redeco of the 500th Vader mold), and Chewbacca (possible redeco of 2004 Vintage Chewbacca.)  I'm in the middle of a series of large crises so I'll update this with facts (or your comments) as time permits.   As you wait, click below to see the figures at Walmart.com.

Upcoming releases include the unreleased Ceremonial Leia, Kylo Ren, and a First Order Stormtrooper.
