Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,953: Boba Fett (Throne Room, The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, August 23, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Boba Fett (Throne Room, The Black Series). He's pretty impressive - but costs a lot more. (I don't see where the money is going really.) It's still a good figure. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,952: The Mythrol (Carbonite, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, August 18, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: The Mythrol (Carbonite, The Vintage Collection) . It's one of four HasLab Razor Crest pack-in Carbonite blocks. Read on!

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, August 2, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: The Client (The Black Series). Werner Herzog, as an Imperial gangster, complete with ice cream maker, can be yours right now. I like how this one turned out. Read on!

Revenge of Six Second Toy Talk - Installment #34, Value Channel Bo-Katan Kryze

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, July 31, 2022

As a wise man once said: "If that is the way the winds are blowing, let no one say I don't also blow." The kids are in to video, so I made a TikTok for @16bit.com and embedded the latest video below - a very short look at Hasbro's new $5 6-inch plastic-free packaged Star Wars Bo-Katan Kryze figure. She'll be in Figure of the Day soon, but I wanted to try out vertically-oriented video (which, let me tell you, is a real pain to do on non-phone hardware.)  Also she comes in a paper bag in a box.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,945: Imperial Death Trooper (The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 26, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Death Trooper (The Retro Collection). It's a Kenner-style figure borrows a lot from the original Stormtrooper figure from way back in 1978 - the non-articulated helmet and the incorporation of the original blaster come to mind. It's a glossy figure with bright green lenses, so it pops nicely Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,944: The Armorer (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, July 21, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: The Armorer (The Vintage Collection). She came out in 2020, but I didn't get the review done - so let's fix that while you're all distracted with Comic-Con, shall we? Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,941: The Mandalorian (Beskar, The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 12, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: The Mandalorian (Beskar, The Retro Collection). It's a Kenner-style figure that adds a cloth cape, but keeps the same blasters as before. It's a good upgrade, but not quite as bright silver as the first one from 2021. Having said that, it's fun and you should probably look him up if you're still on board for Kenner stuff. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,939: Bo-Katan Kryze (The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 5, 2022

More fun from the 1980s... by way of 2022! Bo-Katan Kryze (The Retro Collection). It's a Kenner-style figure that is a lot of fun to fuss with. She has brighter colors than her other figures, but the Kenner-esque deco is a mixed bag - the helmet probably has too much fine detail while the breastplate armor is completely unpainted. I still dig it - she fits in great with your old 1970s and 1980s Kenner vehicles and playsets, which tends to be one of the very best reasons to buy these new releases.Obviously, I recommend them all.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,937: The Armorer (The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, June 28, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: The Armorer (The Retro Collection). It's a Kenner-style figure with a sculpt that looks like it came out of 1983 and a furry cape that's clever, yet unlike anything I can point to from the original toy line. I really like these guys, but they're not for everybody - if you have a big actual vintage Kenner toy stash in your toy box, these are some of the best things I've bought in ages.  Plus she has a giant hammer for smashing Stormtrooper heads.

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 2,927: 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.

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!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,915: R6-D3

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 12, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: R6-D3. It's a new dome on an old body with deco from The Mandalorian - and it looks great. Read on!
