Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,279: Han Solo (The Black Series 3 3/4-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 27, 2016

I'm seeing more of the Han Solo in his Starkiller base jacket around, but not a ton of it.   This is a shame, because it's a great figure.  There's fine printing on his blaster, exceptional articulation, and a pretty good head sculpt.  Should you grab one before the Rogue One crowds start?  Read on!

In Case You Missed It: Japan's Star Wars Logo Display Case

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, September 23, 2016

Thanks to our pal Seth, we have been alerted to this fine item.  The  Star Wars Logo Display Case came out in Japan a few months ago and sells for about US $24.  It has room to fit a few figures or small vehicles, or what any collector might refer to as an adorable first day of being in the hobby.   It's stylish and classy, which clashes with the gargantuan toy hordes in our homes and offices.

Disneyland - Star Wars Astromech Droid R2-B00 Awaits You

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, September 23, 2016

If you love droids - and let's be honest, if you don't, we can't be friends - you'll be excited and/or irritated to know that another in an ongoing series of cute Disney exclusive carded droids is up for grabs.  Only the second new one this year, R2-B00 is up for grabs at or near Disneyland now - check the stores in that general area and this green, purple, orange, and black droid can be yours for about $12.95.   For those keeping track - so far - as of right now - no new parts in the make-your-own-droid bins have surfaced, saving you all from mild heart attacks for a litle longer.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,278: Princess Leia Organa (The Black Series 3 3/4-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 22, 2016

The only new Leia from the new movie, Princess Leia Organa was a Walmart exclusive that, despite very strange eyebrows, is otherwise not bad.  Cloth bits, a decent sculpt, and better articulation than her outfit can make use of, if/when you find her she's the only game in town.  Hopefully we'll see a General Resistance/Vest version next.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,277: First Order Stormtrooper (The Black Series 3 3/4-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, September 21, 2016

The First Order Stormtrooper was a pain to find last year when this 3 3/4-inch boxed figure debuted as a Walmart exclusive.  It still is, but it was back then, too.  He's got more joints and less gear than the other 3 3/4-inch releases, so is he worth it?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,276: Rey (The Black Series 3 3/4-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 20, 2016

You might be seeing Rey from Walmart's exclusive The Black Series assortment as enough of the 3 3/4-inch figures shipped that she sat around in some areas.  Of course now that people are looking again, she'll probably go away pretty fast.  Should you go hunting?  Read on!

We're back!  Planes, and all.   Today it's Finn (The Black Series 3 3/4-Inch), which is an awesome figure that looks a lot like the regular version you probably saw a bunch of already.  Is it worth the upgrade?  Yeeeeeahhhhhhh.  Shell out, dudes.   Read on!

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 13, 2016
