Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,167: Stormtrooper (The Black Seres)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, July 30, 2015

We looked at a Black Series Stormtrooper, but not this Black Series Stormtrooper!  There was another one of those trademark running changes, you see.  This one?  New helmet.   It's still basically the same construction as the Sandtrooper you got with a Dewback a few years ago, and if you didn't, shame on you.    It's pretty good - it comes on the newer TIE Pilot blue cardback if you want one.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,166: Captain Rex (The Black Seres)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, July 29, 2015

Check out Captain Rex!   This Black Series 3 3/4-inch "realistic" figure can be found now at a store near you, if you are lucky.

His helmet is a little small, but he has some pretty amazing paint applications.  Another "Phase 1" Captain Rex figure was shown a few years ago, but remains unreleased - so how is this one?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,165: Chewbacca (The Black Seres)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 28, 2015

"Is that a new figure?" is probably one of the most common questions I'm asked here.  This Chewbacca just came out a few months ago and the answer is... sort of.  There's a new head with a great roaring expression and hair based on the original film, which makes this sort of a super-articulated version of the 1978 original.   I quite like it - and you might too.  Read on!

This week in Q&A: Wild, untethered speculation about new Star Wars movies where we don't know anything yet. 3D Printing - will this be a viable alternative to mass-producing toys in China and the dreaded minimum order quantities? Also, unseen exclusives - will we see them before the line rebrands itself in about six weeks?

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, July 24, 2015

We're back! For now.  Let's look at Mosep Bineed, the first all-new Cantina alien in several years and one of precious few non-Clone new characters to hit the line in a while.  And lucky for you, he's still pretty cheap online so get while the getting is good.  Read on!

You Almost Had More Captain Eo in Star Wars

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, July 23, 2015

While we don't normally post movie-related dirt here, this blurb has been going around and was just too good to not share.   Michael Jackson has had his eye on a lot of things, one of which was apparently the role of Jar Jar Binks.   (So says Ahmed Best.)  This video on Vice has a bit about it, and apparently - assuming this is not an elaborate joke - the singer wanted to do it as practical effects.   It certainly sounds like it's trying to troll fans, but there were so many bizarre stories, true or otherwise, out of the prequels that it's certainly worth contemplating the possibility.

SDCC 2015: Bandai Tamashii Nations Movie Realization Star Wars Figures

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, July 13, 2015

Hidden away in the Bandai booth, Bandai Tamashii Nations Movie Realization brings the whole quasi-samuai look to Star Wars.  You've seen Darth Vader, you've probably seen the Stormtrooper, but did you see the Emperor's Royal Guard or the Sandtrooper?  It's a good thing for you that I was thinking about you, reader, because I snapped a few shots while I was making my journey from meeting to meeting to bathroom to snacks to meeting to more snacks.

Q&A: Comic-Con Is Over, Long Live More Star Wars!

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, July 12, 2015

This week in Q&A: Let's talk Comic-Con and the reveals of sorts. Also new movie ennui and the odd secrecy of al of that. We also look at what may be a bogus question, but hey, why not explain the better Darth Vader figures just in case? We can do that. And we will.

SDCC 2015: Hasbro Booth Adds Season 2 Rex and Inquisitor

By Mike — Sunday, July 12, 2015

Hasbro adds Season 2 Rex and the second Inquisitor to their booth. These figures are slated for release in Spring 2016 along with Mission Series Ahsoka Tano and Darth Vader.

Funko Announces Star Wars Collector Corps

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, July 12, 2015

A few months ago, Funko announced a crate of various forms of loot - specific to a license - with its Marvel Collector Corps program.

At Funko Fundays late Friday night, Funko's Brian Mariotti announced two expansions to this program.  Can you guess what at least one of them is?   Well, if you're reading this site, you should probably have figured it out.
