Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,792: The Child (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 25, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: The Child (The Vintage Collection). He's tiny. He has a the hovering pram and a frog. He also costs more than the 6-inch scale one - but you will probably want this one anyway. Also I was surprised to actually see this at a Target last night. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,791: Boba Fett (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 23, 2021

Today in Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day: Boba Fett (The Vintage Collection). What you'll hear about in fan circles are two missing lines on the chest - a slight blemish on what would be Hasbro's very bet Boba Fett sculpt in this size to date. There is no known running change in the works, but at least what you get looks really good - the articulation is great. The sculpting is fantastic. The colors are excellent. If you can find it, you're going to buy it anyway - it's just that good. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,790: R6-Series Astromech Droid White with Yellow and Silver

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, March 22, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: R6-Series Astromech Droid White with Yellow and Silver. It's a redeco of a redeco - a second take at a yellow droid for Disney parks' parts bins. It's more lemony in color, and has a few different changes from the previous release in 2012 - assuming you can find one, it's pretty nifty. Read on!

Q&A: Star Wars Lost Tooling, Boba's Torso, and Retro Figures

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, March 21, 2021

This week in Q&A - Tooling! Where does it go to die? Indy's warehouse? Under the sea? Also Boba Fett's chest - why are we all staring at it this week? And Retro Collection - will things be easier this time? Probably not.

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 2,789: Queen Amidala (2021 Redux, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 18, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Queen Amidala (2021 Redux, The Vintage Collection). The repaint is tremendously improved with incredible face paint - the outfit is pretty much the same, as is the blaster, but with slightly cleaner paint masks. When do we get a 6-inch version of the Queen with the make-up? Hasbro really nailed this one. Read on!

Disney+ Bringing Ewoks, Boba Fett, and More Clone Wars in April

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 16, 2021

In "I can't believe it" news, Disney+ is adding Ewoks to their line-up. Also a number of other 1970s and 1980s Star Wars small-screen action, of which the Endor furballs made up the most volume. (Conspicuously absent: Droids, a cartoon with R2-D2, C-3PO, Boba Fett, IG-88, Mini-Rigs, and of course, Vlix.)

A Disney+ line-up making the rounds in the press mentioned the following Star Wars highlights:
April 2
Caravan Of Courage (or in the USA, The Ewok Adventure)

Ewoks: The Battle For Endor

Star Wars: Clone Wars - Volume I

Star Wars: Clone Wars - Volume II

Star Wars: Ewoks (S1)

Star Wars: Ewoks (S2)

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,788: Crosshair (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 16, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Crosshair (The Black Series 6-Inch). This Clone looks a bit like Tem Morrison and a bit like Clint Eastwood - but he's also missing the trademark crosshair on his helmet. There's a lot of sculpted detail and specialized armor elements, so Clone fans should get a huge kick out of this. The character appeared on The Clone Wars last season and will be starring in The Bad Batch in May. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,787: Hunter (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, March 15, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Hunter (The Black Series 6-Inch). ShHshares tooling with Crosshair. But what may interest you is that he looks suspiciously like a member of Delta Squad from the Republic Commando video games - are we looking at a secret pretool? Read on!

Q&A: Star Wars Pilots, Creatures, and Retro Action Figures

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, March 14, 2021

This week in Q&A - Retro Figures! You don't have a lot to worry about - no more than usual, so far. Creatures for 3 3/4/-inch figures are in short supply. Will that change? No. And Pilots - who's in your cockpit?

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 2,786: Asajj Ventress (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 11, 2021

Today in Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day: Asajj Ventress (The Black Series 6-Inch). She shares tooling with Dark Side Vision Rey, but you wouldn't know it at first glance. This is one of the very best figures in this scale. This version of Dooku's assassin is largely based on the first couple of seasons of the 2008 The Clone Wars show - and read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,785: Bo-Katan Kryze (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 9, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day: Bo-Katan Kryze (The Black Series 6-Inch). She's a new figure you'll probably never see on shelves because everybody else wants her, so ordering online might be a good move. The sculpting is great, but you'll notice a lot of sculpted scrapes and scuffs that lack any sort of decoration - which is a shame, it's a great sculpt with a good helmet and an excellent head under said helmet. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,784: Captain Cardinal (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, March 8, 2021

Today in Figure of the Day: Captain Cardinal (The Black Series 6-Inch). It's a First Order Stormtrooper, but red, and with a cape - and you got charged $5 more for it. It's a book character that I don't believe is a costumed character at Galaxy's Edge, but I may be wrong about that. It was part of Target's exclusive program and that's 100% appropriate. When do I get my Target exclusive Red Bumblebee? Is that happening? And if not why not? Anyway, we're going to try three figures a week for a while and see how that goes. Read on!

Q&A: Star Wars Cardbacks, DIY Droids, and Old Brands

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, March 7, 2021

This week in Q&A - Zombie Brands! Kenner is back from the dead - sort of. Cardback thickness! It's an ongoing concern. The Droid Factory! Will we ever build our own robots again?

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,783: See-Threepio (C-3PO 2020 Redux, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 4, 2021

Today in Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day: See-Threepio (C-3PO 2020 Redux, The Vintage Collection). It has less paint, but looks better than the 2010 release. He also has removable panels and a removable leg, which I admit I missed the first time this mold got put out back in 2010. I assume and hope you got this by now. Read on!
