Unsurprisingly, Disney Now Owns Indiana Jones

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, December 6, 2013

In a move surprising no one, Disney now has sequel rights for upcoming Indiana Jones films so says Variety.  From TFA:

Under the arrangement, Disney gains distribution and marketing rights to future films, in addition to retaining the ownership rights it secured when it acquired Lucasfilm."

Amazon Droid Factory Figures: Now 60% Off, Greedo now $11.99

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, December 6, 2013

In what I can only assume is to make early adopters who paid $59.99 not a month and change ago feel as foolish as possible, Amazon cut the price on the  Star Wars Legacy Collection Droid Factory Action Figure 6-Pack to a mind-blowing-but-why-stop-now $23.99.  Black Series figures ($11.99 Greedo) and other items also received deep cuts, and since we're going to go ahead and say this qualifies as news, you'll see more of them after the jump.

Ad: Amazon Star Wars Black Series 6-Inch Sandtroopers for $10.12

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, December 4, 2013

Ad: While you probably don't need more Black Series 6-Inch Sandtrooper Action FIgures, Amazon has them for $11.24 $10.12 - the best price I've seen yet.  The armor is largely removable and I assume the dirt comes off, so customizers/troop builders/clearance finders - this is the time to order some Sandtroopers!

Looking for a can't-miss collectible? Invaluable.com has a blaster belonging to one Han Solo, modeled after the Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi weapons.  Click here for more, but the important thing is that it's expected to sell for $200,000-$300,000, which is more than I expect to earn before I die in a bizarre gardening accident in the coming decade.

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 26, 2013

I can tell you're excited - we're going to round out Toys R Us' latest exclusives (and take a break) with Clone Captain Deviss, a redeco of a figure that was a redeco of another figure.  He has a name now!  How about that?  Should you care?  Read on

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,064: Selig Kenjenn (Battle of Geonosis: Jedi Knights)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, November 25, 2013

Available at a Toys R Us near you right now, Selig Kenjenn (not Zelig, I don't think) is shown being at the Battle of Geonosis.  Except he wasn't there - the character is based on a piece of art depicting Holocron-keeper Leland Chee as a Jedi, which had TIE Fighters in the background.  As such, it's less an essential movie collectible than it is a bizarrely neat trivia question for people like you and me who live and breathe this stuff.  Read on!
