By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, September 30, 2018

This week in Q&A - Moving your collection! Time shreds all toys. Posters - fake reproductions and real fakes! Also Episode IX Toys - let's speculate wildly in this answer I wrote a few weeks ago.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,520: R5-D8 (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 27, 2018

Amazon's exclusive R5-D8 (The Black Series 6-Inch) is unlike previous versions of this specific droid.  Previous representations usually look a lot like R5-D4, with the blue arm panels.  Some even have yellow stripes in the red columns on the chest.  This one is colored almost exactly like the 1979 Kenner R4-D4, which doesn't mean that it necessarily matches the on-screen droid that served Jek Porkins - but there's not a lot of reference, either.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,519: 4-LOM (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 25, 2018

The 4-LOM (The Black Series 6-Inch) brings you another bounty hunter in the oh-so-popular larger scale - and the head is clear green, so shine a light through that for double-plus fun.   It includes a blaster.  Read on!

Q&A: Star Wars Solo, Secondary Market, and Expanded Universe Hubbub

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, September 23, 2018

This week in Q&A - The Old Expanded Universe Action Figures in the late 200Xes were great - can we have more? (No.) The free market - it gives, and it takes away. Solo! Thank goodness the toys are still coming. Even though you didn't see the movie, it's filled with neat toy idas.

Be sure you send in your questions for next week. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,518: Princess Leia Organa (Hoth, Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 20, 2018

She's new! Well, newish. The Princess Leia Organa (Hoth) is one of precious few new "classic" figures this year - and she has articulated boots!  And a weird blaster.  But hey, it's a new Leia - we don't get many of those.  Read on!

Bob Iger Confirms - Too Much Star Wars

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 20, 2018

For the first time in ages, we have only one known Star Wars movie release date.   Disney CEO Bob Iger talks about the possibility of having too many movies in THR's feature "Bob Iger Talks Disney's Streaming Service, 'Roseanne,' James Gunn and a Coming 'Star Wars' "Slowdown."   A choice quote:

"I made the [annual Star Wars theatrical release] timing decision, and as I look back, I think the mistake that I made — I take the blame — was a little too much, too fast. You can expect some slowdown, but that doesn't mean we're not going to make films. J.J. [Abrams] is busy making [Episode] IX. We have creative entities, including [Game of Thrones creators David] Benioff and [D.B.] Weiss, who are developing sagas of their own, which we haven't been specific about. And we are just at the point where we're going to start making decisions about what comes next after J.J.'s. But I think we're going to be a little bit more careful about volume and timing. And the buck stops here on that."

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 18, 2018

From Disney, it's R2-F1P!  It looks a lot like other droids you've bought over the years, but it's slightly different.  Exciting is hardly the word I would use, but it's one more droid for your shelf.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,516: R5-232 (Droid Factory Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 13, 2018

One of the many figures you forgot existed and won't realize you don't have until 5 years from now, Disney's R5-232 (Droid Factory Line Look) can be bought right now.  It has a new restraining bolt, but otherwise is just a fancy redeco of a mold you've had access to for quite some time.  It's still one of the more interesting droids in this set based on Solo: A Star Wars StoryRead on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,515: Enfys Nest (Swoop Bike, Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 11, 2018

Packed with her Swoop Bike, this Enfys Nest action figure looks great!  There's no removable helmet, but the sci-fi meets local flavor costume combines armor, fur, and a cape to bring to life a Zorro-like mantle that could be handed down and return in later installments. It's a pretty good figure with a pretty nice bike.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,514: Stormtrooper (Mimban, AT-DT, Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 6, 2018

The Stormtrooper (Mimban, AT-DT) is really cool and comes with one of the best Hasbro 3 3/4-inch scale vehicles in recent memory - it explodes!   The figure doesn't, though - it's just a nice trooper that you'll wish you could easily build into your armies, and you can't.  Read on!

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 4, 2018

The Han Solo (Kessel Run Millennium Falcon) may be popping up in a playset later this year - we'll need to wait and see how many changes they make - but you can get get it with a rather small Falcon right now!  The figure isn't bad - it's as Kenner-y as anything we've had in recent years.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,512: Chewbacca (Vandor-1 Playset, Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, August 30, 2018

This Chewbacca (Vandor-1 Playset) is like the other one, but with goggles.  I think the growls are slightly different, but that may not be a selling point - the playset is, though.   Read on!
