New Star Wars 6-Inch Value Figures Found at Wisconsin Walgreens

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, September 1, 2017

3355 UPDATE: These were also found at a Phoenix, AZ area Walgreens store for $6.99 each.

One of the few people I talk to nearly every day is my pal Phil in Wisconson.  Today, Phil shared this photo of 4 new 6-inch figures at Walgreens - this format has also been found at Family Dollar, Big Lots!, and Dollar General since last year.   Rey is back in new packaging.  The Stormtrooper was sold in Mexico and Australia in 2015, and is making its US debut here.  Captain Phasma and C-3PO are making their debuts here as well.  They're basically the same size as 6-inch The Black Series figures so if you need army builder filler for your shelves, give these a look.

We have no price at this time as none was listed (usually they sell for $7 or less), but it's worth noting for you Transformers fans that I found Cyber Battalion Prowl and Bumblebee at a Phoenix-area Walgreens for $16.99 today. These are Voyager-sized robots sold previously in South America and China.

Star Wars Force Link Troubleshooting - Body of Evidence

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, September 1, 2017

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Force Link Starter Set If you picked up a Force Link bracelet in the Starter Set, BB-8 Playset, or Toys R Us you might have been trying to give it a shot by placing the reader up against the blue symbol on your figures' feet.

Do not do this.

The chip for the sounds is not located in the figures' feet, but rather in their torso.   If you consult the instruction sheet,  you'll notice that it shows the illustration of a hand gripping the figure by the body - which is how you're going to get your best results.  Similarly, the chips in the vehicles and creatures are not necessarily where the blue Force Link symbol may indicate and you'll want to try a few things to get them in just the right position.  Sometimes it's logical, and in some cases - like the Resistance Ski Speeder - it's placed perfectly with the vehicle's natural handle.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,399: Imperial Probe Droid (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, August 31, 2017

It begins!  The first figure I cracked open from Force Friday II was the Imperial Probe Droid.  It's the first all-new Probot in nearly 20 years, and it's a nice one with a better integrated rocket, a superior sculpt, nifty Force Link sounds, and a clear display stand.  And more articulation.  And glossy plastic bits.  It's just better - read on!

The glossy Vendor Droid (Black, Droid Factory) is available in Flordia now, and it's pretty sharp.  It's shiny, it's not something we've seen in a movie or TV show yet, and it looks like it could belong on the Death Star playset you'll probably never get.  But I digress.   Read on!
