Q&A: Star Wars Grails, The Mandalorian, and Completism

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, November 17, 2019

This week in Q&A - Modern grails, are they possible? Sure! But you'll never be able to predict them. Also completism is a scourge so let's talk about "just different enough to make you mad" from the new The Vintage Collection announcements.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,638: Wedge Antilles (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 14, 2019

It's Luke with a new head, but Wedge Antilles (The Black Series 6-Inch)  is pretty good.  You get a great portrait, a blaster, a helmet, and possibly the wrong haircut.  It's hard to know for sure - but you can read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,637: The Mandalorian (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 12, 2019

The show is on today - I haven't seen it yet - but The Mandalorian (The Black Series 6-Inch) is a figure you can get now! It's armored, you can see some Scarif Trooper armor, and it looks cool.   The coloring looks like something that would fit in with Jabba's entourage, but for now he'll just wander the shelves.  Read on!

Q&A: Star Wars Gets Small - Small Screens, Small Figures

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, November 10, 2019

This week in Q&A - It's The Mandalorian week! I haven't seen it, so we'll talk about the lack of 3 3/4-inch The Rise of Skywalker toys! And 6-inch figures that don't exist as 3 3/4-inch figures - this is going to be a thing.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,636: Supreme Leader Kylo Ren (Galaxy of Adventures 5-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 7, 2019

Available in a 2-pack at Target with an unmasked head, this Supreme Leader Kylo Ren (Galaxy of Adventures 5-Inch)  is pretty great.  Complete with lightsaber and cloak, he can slash and cut and fight and do all the crazy things you want him to do.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,635: Rey (Galaxy of Adventures 5-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 5, 2019

The newish Rey (Galaxy of Adventures 5-Inch) is probably on a peg in a store near you, which is wrong, it should be in your house.  She's loaded with articulation, the paint job is fantastic, and there are good accessories and a working blaster holster.  And she's only ten bucks.  Read on!

Q&A: Star Wars New Old Figures, The Mandalorian, and Missing Stuff

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, November 3, 2019

This week in Q&A - the future if new old 3 3/4-inch figures! I wouldn't get hopeful. And Mandalorian stuff - is that it? Well, it's some of it for now at least. Also the missing figures are still missing, so for those of you who are obsessive about numbering, we're sorry about that.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,634: D-O (Galaxy of Adventures 5-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 31, 2019

Now available and pretty easy to find, the D-O (Galaxy of Adventures 5-Inch) comes as part of a pretty good 3-pack.  It's the smallest figure in the set, complete with an articulated neck and hair.  As of now the 3 3/4-inch D-O is exclusive to a Disney parks gift set - so should you get this cheaper and easier to find set instead? Read on!

Benioff & Weiss Star Wars No Longer a Thing

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 29, 2019

Game of Thrones TV masterminds David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are no longer developing Star Wars movies, so says every major trade including Variety.  For those keeping track, there's a lot in development still like several streaming shows, the Rian Johnson movies, and the barely-whispered-about Feige-headed project.  And probably more.  It looks like the future for streaming is a lot brighter than the silver screen, but at this point it is kind of tough to know what is going to happen next.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,633: Maz Kanata (Holographic, Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 29, 2019

Today let's look at that under-distributed Maz Kanata Holographic figure sold in a 5-pack that seemed to show up more in Europe than the USA.  It's Maz, but clear blue.  It'll go great with your Mirage, Cobra Commander, and Darth Vader holographic figures... and maybe your clear blue Glyos figures and 90 other clear blue guys.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,632: Emperor Palpatine (with Throne, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 24, 2019

The Amazon-exclusive Emperor Palpatine (with Throne, The Black Series 6-Inch)  is pretty cool. With better paint and more gear than the 2013 release, it also costs about twice as much - but with the alternate heads and hands, it's worth it.  Read on!
