Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,432: Emperor's Royal Guard (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, December 4, 2017

It's a theme week!  We start off with Emperor's Royal Guard (The Last Jedi Line Look), now at Target... probably.  It's a new sculpt with a sound chip, but the figure is more exciting than the chip.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,428: Shoretrooper Captain (Rogue One Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, November 22, 2017

There aren't many toys of the Shoretrooper Captain (Rogue One Line Look)  available in the USA - he's got a lot of blue and is packed with Bistan.  Is it worth getting this cool trooper and his space monkey pal?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,421: Elite Praetorian Guard (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, October 30, 2017

Possibly at a Walmart near you, the Elite Praetorian Guard (The Black Series) 3 3/4-inch figure is pretty cool - but looks different from the other ones.  The cloth robes allow for full leg movement, and the arms are nicely jointed.  Read on!

Kohl's Star Wars: The Last Jedi Gift Set In Stock Online

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 24, 2017

The excessively named Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi 4-pk. Luke Skywalker (Jedi Master), Rey (Jedi Training), First Order Stormtrooper Officer & Resistance Tech Rose Figure Set by Hasbro is in stock on Kohl's web site.   The only actual exclusive in the set is the Stormtrooper, which may be a mix of parts already on the market - I haven't had the chance to examine it up close yet.  Retail is $49.99, but a 20% off coupon gets it down to about $35.99.

Check out Walmart's exclusive 3 3/4-inch Resistance Tech Rose (The Black Series, The Last Jedi).  I haven't seen them in a store for about a month, but it's a nifty take on a character we'll get to meet in December.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,408: Jyn Erso (Forces of Destiny)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, September 13, 2017

I wasn't sure what to make of Jyn Erso (Forces of Destiny) when it showed up, but it's pretty good.  The "adventure figure" as Hasbro calls them stands well, can hold her accessories, and has pretty great articulation given what we usually see from dolls for girls.   It may not be for you, but it's a nifty and largely well-made product.  Read on!

Star Wars Force Link Troubleshooting - Body of Evidence

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, September 1, 2017

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Force Link Starter Set If you picked up a Force Link bracelet in the Starter Set, BB-8 Playset, or Toys R Us you might have been trying to give it a shot by placing the reader up against the blue symbol on your figures' feet.

Do not do this.

The chip for the sounds is not located in the figures' feet, but rather in their torso.   If you consult the instruction sheet,  you'll notice that it shows the illustration of a hand gripping the figure by the body - which is how you're going to get your best results.  Similarly, the chips in the vehicles and creatures are not necessarily where the blue Force Link symbol may indicate and you'll want to try a few things to get them in just the right position.  Sometimes it's logical, and in some cases - like the Resistance Ski Speeder - it's placed perfectly with the vehicle's natural handle.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,261: Han Solo (The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, March 16, 2016

It's Han Solo!  Not only did Harrison Ford come back to play one more turn as Han Solo last year, but now we know he's going to be back as Indiana Jones in 2019.  Perhaps you'll find this new 3 3/4-inch figure by then - it's not bad!  Han has his new jacket, old blaster, and a new green gun too.   Read on!

New ToysRUs TV Spot: Like Father, Like Daughter

By Mike — Tuesday, October 27, 2015

I think this new ToysRUs commercial sums up a lot of parental sentiments out there as the original generation passed on the torch to a new generation of Star Wars kids. It truly is a special time folks. Savor every moment.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,176: R5-Series Astromech Droid Black with Silver and Orange

Hasbro Toy Fair Star Wars Panel 2014 - Stream-Of-Consciousness Notes

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, February 16, 2014

Because I am preposterously tired, have my Hasbro Toy Fair Panel Star Wars Notes.  This is what I punched up as the panel played on, and you probably won't get a heck of a lot more insight over what you've already seen so far.  Heck, maybe it'll clarify something.  Just go ahead and read on!
