By Adam Pawlus — Monday, January 18, 2021

Clones, Send in theSomehow this got missed on the front page, but Clone Trooper (Phase I, The Black Series 6-Inch) is a figure! You can buy it! It's a lot like the Phase II mold used for Ahsoka's squad and the Kamino troopers, but with a different helmet and articulation similar to 3 3/4-inch figures.  It's good - do you need to rebuild your armies now?  Read on!

We just got a small one, but we also got a 6-inch The Armorer (The Black Series 6-Inch) last year!  This is the mass release with the plastic cape - and she's great.  Shiny! Accessorized!  Ready to smash skulls and forge armor, the Armorer is... oh, why even write her up.  You're not going to find her in stores.  Read on!

Q&A: Good Riddance 2020, Hello Star Wars Spoilers for The Mandalorian

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, December 27, 2020

This week in Q&A - Goodbye 2020! It's the first year since 2014 without a theatrical Star Wars movie! Also it's time for The Mandalorian Spoiler Territory and if you've somehow made it this far, I'm impressed. Let's talk vehicles. Let's talk farming out other scales. I wouldn't bet on it. And packaging variants - I wouldn't expect a lot of running changes in the coming year.
