Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,548: Dengar (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, January 3, 2019

Another of last year's highlights, the Dengar (The Black Series 6-Inch) figure is awesome!  You should have ran out to get one, or ordered online, because Dengar is great.  He has a removable backpack, a cool blaster, and amazing detail with a separate rubbery headwrap on his head.  Who knew Dengar could be so good?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,547: Han Solo (Mimban, Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, January 1, 2019

This Han Solo (Mimban) is in a gift set, or sold individually - you should be able to get one rather easily.  It has a removable bask, moving goggles, a blaster, and a cape.  It's a Mudtrooper of the finest order, so I would get one if I were you.  Heck, I got two.  Read on!

Kmart, Sears Closing 80 More Stores

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, December 28, 2018

There are precious few Kmart and Sears stores near me left open, and another list of 80 closing stores can be found at The USA Today.  Sears was a catalog titan, and Kmart was one of the first really successful big box-style stores - and after this round of closures, they will be down to significantly under 500 between them. I would ask if your store is on the list, but odds are there aren't many left near you.

Star Wars Review: Lando Calrissian (Skiff Guard, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 27, 2018

We looked at one of the worst figures of the year the other week, so now let's look at one of Hasbro's very best.  The Lando Calrissian (Skiff Guard, The Black Series 6-Inch) brings one of my favorite costumes on one of my favorite characters, and on top of that they did a phenomenal job. The face sculpting is good, but the paint! Oh!  They did a nice job giving him a feel that's a lot closer to Billy Dee Williams than ever before.  With the Donald Glover version also turning out well, and the buzz that we'll see Lando return again next year, it's a good season for Lando merch.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,545: R4-H18 (Droid Factory Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 25, 2018

The Disney takeover has resulted in more Hasbro-compatible toys at theme parks, like this year's ice sculpture-inspired Christmas robot R4-H18 (Droid Factory Line Look).   It's a typical R4 unit cast in a clear white plastic, frosty with silver highlights and decorated with festive and removable drinks.  It can't make use of the third leg and the drink tray at the same time, but that's how these things go.  Read on!

Q&A: Star Wars Starships and Displaying The Really Big Stuff

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, December 23, 2018

This week in Q&A - Displaying the Sail Barge. It's a little early, but it's certainly a problem on my mind right now. Also hunting stuff - and that's about it, since we're light on questions. I assume you're having an office Christmas party, are avoiding your family, or are in line screaming because someone forgot to get a can of those fried onion things and now you're behind someone with 27 items and you've just got this one thing, and they're paying by check, and have no humanity. What can you do? What, pray tell, can you do?

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,544: Jawa (Droid Factory Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 20, 2018

Is this the worst action figure of 2018? Yes. The Disney Sandcrawler pack-in Jawa (Droid Factory Line Look) is clearly cobbled together from Hasbro parts someone cast and didn't resculpt over the joints.  It's crude, and if you told me it was a bootleg I'd believe you.  At least the droid is OK and the Sandcrawler is nice. Read on!

Review: Onell Design Glyos Pheytooth

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, December 19, 2018

Onell Design has new Glyos-compatible figures every month or so, and the last release had Pheytooth - a Snaggletooth-inspired figure.   I looked at it over at 16bit.com, and figured I may as well share it here.  Previous figures include nods to troopers, Greedo, and even Vlix - so I like these a lot.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,543: Gonk Droid (Droid Factory Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 18, 2018

A Sandcrawler pack-in at Disney theme parks, the Gonk Droid (Droid Factory Line Look) has a pop-off chassis and jointed legs. It's very similar to the Hasbro one from a few years ago, down to sculpted joints that worked on Hasbro's but are ornamental here.  Read on!

Q&A: Finding Star Wars Figures, Also Picking, Selecting

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, December 16, 2018

This week in Q&A - Online Shopping and Stores. A lot has changed since 1995! More Solo figures? I can wish. Figure selection has also changed a lot lately.

Be sure you send in your questions for next week. We have two open slots! Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,542: Kylo Ren (Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 13, 2018

The Force Link 2.0 Kylo Ren is a lot like the one from the first Force Link band last year - but with a different symbol on his boot, and a different sound chip.   You may not need more Kylo Ren figures, but you also might need them all - and this Solo: A Star Wars Story release does meet the "just different enough to make you mad" quota.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,541: L3-37 (Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 11, 2018

You might have seen this L3-37 (Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)  around, but maybe not.  It's good!  A heavily modified R3 droid has arms and legs, but you'll ese parts from an old Astromech chassis placed strategically on her body.  It works.  Oh, it works.  Read on!
