Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,417: Resistance Tech Rose (The Black Series, The Last Jedi)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, October 16, 2017

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

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, February 7, 2013

Let's look at Ahsoka in her first and so far only "realistic" action figure. She has 4 lightsabers in all, with 2 lit and 2 hilts.  It's not a bad buy.  Did you pick her up yet?
