Four new hats were also shown.

Surprise! Sorta Stealth Star Wars Episode VII Sneak Preview Figure at Disney Parks

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, April 16, 2015

You may already own an Episode VII action figure - if not, here's how to get it.

The advantages of obsessive completism rarely manifest themselves so clearly.  This morning at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim, four new Astromech domes were unveiled for the new movie.  These were said to be for various X-Wings and background elements, but one looked very familiar. 

It turns out that it's because we reviewed something very close to it in 2012!

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, April 16, 2015

Check out Ezra Bridger (Cadet) from the Mission Series.  It's the first alternate costume figure for one of the Rebels cast, so it's a pretty exciting thing to have here!   He has a recolored helmet, a slightly shorter build, and a pretty great paint job.  Read the full review!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,145: Luke Skywalker (Hoth, Star Wars Rebels Mission Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, April 15, 2015

From the Mission Series line, here's Luke Skywalker (Hoth)!  He's got Wampa damage and is a pretty good modern update to the original 1982 Kenner action figure.  I've been seeing a few of these in stores this week, so I'd suggest getting while the getting is good and the pricing isn't increased.  Read on!

Stream Star Wars Celebration Live Online This Week

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 14, 2015

Why pay for a hotel when you can go to Celebration VII free while you're at work?

StarWars.com updated with a feature explaining that you can watch a number of panels live from your computer.  Or if you're one of the very young and hip, your "phone."   Obviously you're denied the exclusives, the costumes, the lines, and new adventures in what qualifies as food, but you can see some of the fun at home.   (Memo to Comic-Con in San Diego: copy this.)

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,144: Han Solo (Hoth, Star Wars Rebels Mission Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 14, 2015

We looked at the 6-inch version last week, so today we'll look at the new Mission Series 2015 Han Solo (Hoth) action figure, hitting pegs and online shelves now.  It comes with Luke and for the asking price, it's amazing.  However you'll immediately lament the loss of trapdoor Tauntaun toys, and hopefully Hasbro will consider making a new one for us - because, let's be honest, that'd be pretty awesome.  Read on!

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, April 13, 2015

In the post Star Wars Celebration 2015 Super Shogun Exclusives!, Funko shows that they are indeed bringing the long, long-gestating jumbo figures inspired by Shogun Warriors to plastic life once again.  This redeco of the Stormtrooper is a swell addition to any spacious house, while the Kenner-deco Boba Fett is another fine delight which I will no doubt cry myself to sleep over not owning.  Such is life.  Click here to read more and see the pictures.
