Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,928: Obi-Wan Kenobi (2022 Redux, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, May 26, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Obi-Wan Kenobi (2022 Redux, The Vintage Collection). It's a repaint of a fairly old figure, and it arguably looks a little better - but, again, it is a figure from 2011. The belt has a place to hang his communicator and his lightsaber is cool, but should you track one down online? Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,927: Ahsoka Tano (Corvus, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, May 24, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Ahsoka Tano (Corvus, The Vintage Collection). She's awesome! This is the mass-retail release, Walmart has an exclusive version. This figure has one of Hasbro's very best head sculpts, with amazing paint and tip-top articulation. Even if you're not an Ahsoka fan (and you should be one), I'd suggest getting this figure (or playing with a friend's) to see just how far Hasbro has come in making these figures truly amazing in recent waves. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,926: Death Watch Mandalorian (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, May 19, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Death Watch Mandalorian (The Vintage Collection). It's a new sculpt and one of Habsro's very best. The range of motion is great, the center of gravity is good, and the joints move pretty freely so you won't feel "stuck" in a weird position. You'll love it. Buy an army. Read on!

Vanity Fair Spills the Beans for 2023

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, May 17, 2022

Red CogVia Vanity Fair: Star Wars: The Rebellion Will Be Televised.. This wide-ranging feature not only touches on this year's Star Wars streaming series, but also has some fascinating tidbits and non-answers about upcoming movies. For instance, don't expect Rogue Squadron for holiday 2023. Nor that Rian Johnson series any time soon.

 

There are plenty of perfectly nice photos, but the copy is packed with newsworthy gems about how trilogies are unlikely and more interconnected stories are pretty much guaranteed.  There are tidbits on the Andor show and lots of other odds and ends, but nothing particularly spoiler-worthy.  Also there are no release dates or targets for when you can expect to see another movie in theaters.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,925: Fennec Shand (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, May 17, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Fennec Shand (The Vintage Collection). This is one of the better figures - great likeness, excellent articulation, this is a figure that shows considerable improvement over the figures we got just five to ten years ago. You should get this one - it's a good character, a good costume, and a fantastic figure that will put a lot of other releases to shame. Read on!

Q&A: Star Wars Customized and Sith Heads, Sith Heads, Roly-Poly Sith Heads

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, May 15, 2022

This week in Q&A - Star Wars Stikfas or Xevoz! Nope! Also a non-question! Well, let's non-answer it.

Be sure you send in your questions for next time. The mailbag is out of on-topic questions, so if you got some, send some in. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,924: CB-23 (Droid Depot set, The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, May 12, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: CB-23 (Droid Depot set, The Black Series). It's a BB-8 retool, and a reminder that the round roly-poly droid mold gets very little use. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,923: Pit Droid (Droid Depot set, The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, May 10, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Pit Droid (Droid Depot set, The Black Series). It's small, but impressive. It's a must-have, but also in a $75 exclusive box of mostly repaints. Should you get it? I think so. But it may not be worth your expense, unless you dig droids, and you probably do. Read on!

Q&A: Star War Light Launches and Lacking Limbs

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, May 8, 2022

Adam's Star Wars Newsletter #8 - May Bonanza Part 1

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, May 5, 2022

Adam's Star Wars Newsletter is back with the announcements you missed because who wants to watch 1 hour of video for 3 minutes of names? I don't.  New Obi-Wan Kenobi, Expanded Universe, The Mandalorian, and other toys have been announced - many of which just went up for pre-order.  But we're not going to make you watch someone ramble on camera to find out what they are - I typed up all the names in the newsletter so you can skim it while you're on the bus, or the toilet.  Take care to not confuse the two.  We expect even more announcements at Star Wars Celebration in just a few weeks.
