Q&A: Crowdfunding Star Wars and Let's Talk Vehicle Reissues

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, October 22, 2023

This week in Star Wars Q&A - Let's talk vehicles. Do you think Hasbro would crowdfund a reissue? I don't. And let's talk more crowdfunding. Maybe you'll earn a sticker.

Be sure you send in your questions, the mail bag is empty. We have no questions for next week's update, which may mean I get a break. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,074: Oola (Custom)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 19, 2023

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Oola (Custom). This is a figure Jabba wanted but Kenner was unwilling to make. A fan made one last year, and then a few more, and it's pretty close to what you might expect out of Kenner from 1983. The color is a little wrong, the headdress is a tiny bit off, and the sandals may not quite match - but the same was true of a few figures back then.

She fits in perfectly with your older Return of the Jedi figures, and sadly is priced more or less accordingly. I like it - I wouldn't buy it if Hasbro charged $40. But Hasbro won't make one, so it's this or nothing. Is it worth it? Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,073: Boba Fett (Comic Art Edition, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 17, 2023

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Boba Fett (Comic Art Edition, The Vintage Collection). This is gorgeous figure at a hideous price - the mark-up on a $12.99 figure from a few years ago makes little sense, but from a technical perspective it's a nice product with great paint on a lovely cardback. We also got a Marvel Boba Fett about 15 years ago packed with a droid and a full-size comic for about $12 - so this definitely got slapped with some premium pricing. At least it's gorgeous. Read on!

Q&A: Star Wars Playsets and Hey That's Good

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, October 15, 2023

This week in Star Wars Q&A - Let's talk playsets. Is anything else big in the cards? Not that I know of - but is there a way to make something small work? And that's it, we didn't get any other questions.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,072: Grogu (and Luke Skywalker, The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 12, 2023

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Grogu (and Luke Skywalker, The Black Series). This one comes with Luke, who was marked up $20 for his accessories like Grogu, and might be on clearance at a store near you. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,071: R7-TN0

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 10, 2023

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: R7-TN0 . It's not from anything specific, but it is a droid painted like Ahsoka Tano and that's pretty neat. Read on!

New from Disney: R8-H23 Star Wars Droid Factory Figure

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, October 9, 2023

New from Disney: R8-H23 Star Wars Droid Factory Figure! This one has a wreath, and looks like it belongs in a holiday display. Or a Strawberry Shortcake display. Either way, it's pretty cool and it's $14.99 - and probably in the parks, too.

Q&A: Star Wars Turns 300 Again and Droid Sockets and We're Out of Questions

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, October 8, 2023

This week in Star Wars Q&A - What will we get for VC 300? I don't know. But probably not that. And do dead droids do their duty as X-Wing co-pilots? Yes.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,070: Garindan (Custom)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 5, 2023

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Garindan (Custom). This is another fan-made, mass-produced figure but this time you can tell from where the parts originated - there are pieces of the 1997 Kenner The Power of the Force Garindan mixed in with a vinyl cape, a black Cloud Car Pilot comm, and other new and old elements.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,069: Tusken Raider Warrior (Single Card Edition, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 3, 2023

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Tusken Raider Warrior (Single Card Edition, The Vintage Collection) . This is the single-carded one, which I opened right as I forgot for a split-second I meant to open the Target version with the Massiff first. Whoops. Either way, it's still Rey with new parts on her - a pretty impressive redress, but a redress all the same. Read on!

Q&A: New Old Retro Based on Old New Star Wars Movies, and Take a Dooku

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, October 1, 2023

This week in Star Wars Q&A - Why Dooku? Why not? Also should we expect more Retro figures from older movies? I hope so!

There has not been any New York Toy Fair coverage here because I got super sick and missed a few appointments - and from looking around, it was not a huge year for Star Wars.   Or action brands, in general.  September/October is probably the wrong time for a trade show in this business.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,068: Obi-Wan Kenobi (Jabiim, The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 28, 2023

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 26, 2023

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: R2-S4M . This 2023 figure from Disney looks an awful lot like a figure named "Jabba's Bartender" from 2016. It's different! Read on!
