Q&A: Star Wars Choices, Banthas, and Vehicle Issues

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, April 2, 2017

This week in Q&A - Move Ahead or Look Back? I'd say do both, but you need to consider some variables. Heavy Metal Bantha - sadly, not a band nor a kind of beard. And the AT-ST - a few Walmarts are sitting on a reissue of one that cost about half the price a few years ago. Is it worth it? ...well, I didn't buy one if that tells you anything.

Also Patreon Pledge Drive - got a dollar? Feel like wasting it supporting this site?

And send in your questions for next week. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,355: Edrio Two Tubes (Rogue One Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 28, 2017

As named on the Jedha Revolt box, Edrio Two Tubes is a pretty good action figure.  He can stand and sit, he has exquisite sculpting - the head in particular - and he has superior painting.  The deco may not be entirely as accurate or as dark as the character in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, but he does have the pilot equipment and rfile you're going to want.  Hopefully you track this one down and don't miss it, because he's part of a worthwhile set.  Read on!

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 21, 2017

If you enjoy life,  you'll probably want Sabine Wren.  This 6-inch action figure is a Rebel Mandalorian artist with four accessories and some amazing paint operations on her armor.  And working holsters.  And a removable helmet with an articulated rangefinder - even Boba and Jango don't have that.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,351: Snowtrooper (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, March 15, 2017

Still hard to find, the Snowtrooper has barely showed up in any stores - but you can get it online.  It has two blasters and just enough mud on his boots that I assume you're going to dig it.  I'd love it if you could army build it, but that seems unlikely right now.  Read on!
