Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,739: Imperial Stormtrooper (The Mandalorian/Rogue One, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, October 16, 2020

Whatever you think he comes from, the design docs make sure Imperial Stormtrooper (The Mandalorian/Rogue One, The Black Series 6-Inch) covers a couple of bases.  It's a new mold! There's.... an unfinished head under the helmet? The articulation is closer to that of a very good 3 3/4-inch figure. And you  will want dozens.  Read on!

43 Years Later, Star Wars' First Vehicle Gets a Playset with the Tantive IV

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, August 23, 2020

3852 This is an interesting one.  Hasbro's Tantive IV playset is a big hallway that can connect with itself so you can expand and make a whole ship - but sadly, there's no actual ship to be had.   There are opening doors and a reissue of the previously released The Vintage Collection Rebel Fleet Trooper with requisite changes, but that's a good thing.  You'll probably want 2-3 of these when they come out very early next year.

It'll be $49.99.  You can order yours at Entertainment Earth, and also Amazon... or the toy sellers that don't kick us back a few pennies or dollars when you click those links and place an order.  So we suggest those links.  It's called bias.

New Star Wars: The Vintage Collection Rogue One Darth Vader

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, August 23, 2020

3847 Coming from Hasbro, a Darth Vader (Rogue One) The Vintage Collection figure!  It'll go great with that Tantive IV playset you'll be buying by the case to build out a battle scene.  It looks like Vader is mostly - or entirely - new parts, which is unusual these days!  Hasbro also took care to ensure you can see that they are using the correct gloves.  And we glove you, Hasbro.  This looks pretty dynamic and surprisingly spry for a 3 3/4-inch scale figure.

You can order Darth Vader or a full case of his unrevealed wave at Entertainment Earth, or order at Amazon. And those are both affiliate links, so we may get pennies or dollars if you click and buy something.

Star Wars: The Vintage Collection Reveal - 2020 Chirrut Imwe

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, June 22, 2020

3771 The first of a new wave (and it's a good one) is this new Chirrit Imwe 3 3/4-inch action figure.  He's had two releases before with different accessories, but this is a new, super-articulated sculpt due out this year.  Pre-orders go live tomorrow morning!

HasCon - Star Wars Single Figure 3 3/4-Inch Main Line Newness

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, September 8, 2017

3368 Hasbro revealed a few goodies at SDCC already, but there are more items yet to show.  Actually, this might be it for the year - I don't know, given how quickly the Han Solo movie will (allegedly) be released.   The gamut of Force Friday II products were shown, but you've seen and hopefully already bought those.   Here, you'll find new 2-packs, single figures, and newish creatures.   No new vehicles were displayed at this event.

Toys R Us Hasbro Star Wars Rogue One Cassian Andor and Stormtrooper Exclusive Figures Hitting

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, November 13, 2016

3207 It's here too!  For $14.99 - and apparently not qualifying for the 20% off sale right now - the Star Wars Rogue One Cassian Andor and Stormtrooper Exclusive Figure Two-Pack is in stores now. As always, I found it in Phoenix, AZ and it was the last one at the store I visited.  Good hunting!

The set includes Cassian Andor from the U-Wing fighter (with slightly better paint), a redeco of the single-carded Stormtrooper, Sabine's zipline, and more.  That's a decent amount of plastic for $15.

Kohl's Rogue One Hasbro Action Figure Set: In Stock, Deal Stacking

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, November 11, 2016

Kohl's pricing is tricky - they're usually more expensive than other stores, but run promotions regularly that change the actual cost of the item.  This year, they've got a swell Star Wars Rogue One Battle 4-Pack Figurine Set with a normal going rate of $49.99.   Today, the base price was $34.99 when I placed my order not 10 minutes ago, and as of right now it's $39.99.  It may well move again.   I used the codes USA10 and VETERAN to get it down to under $25 with free in-store pick-up and sales tax - but again, that pricing seems to change, so be careful when checking out and check the coupon code sites.  But why is this set different enough to make you mad?
