Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,470: First Order Walker Driver (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, April 9, 2018

From the 4-pack, the First Order Walker Driver (The Last Jedi Line Look) is a great addition to your figure stash - but there's no vehicle for it to pilot just yet.  It's cool though, with added grey stripes to distinguish it from the half dozen or so Snowtroopers you bought since 2015.  Read on!

Q&A: Vehicles, Star Wars Advertising, and HasLab

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, April 8, 2018

This week in Q&A - Figures sitting in vehicles! It has been a problem since the 1995 relaunch - although it was actually not too bad in 1995. Advertising!

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, April 4, 2018

So check out Rose (Crait Defense) from the four-pack from The Last Jedi.  It's cool!  She has her necklace, and what's left of her First Order uniform.   And a blaster.  She's one of the cooler figures in the set, so assuming you didn't already buy one and are just looking to have your good sense of taste reenforced read on!

HasLab Sail Barge Passes 7,600, Star Wars Crowdfunding Ends at 11:59 PM Eastern Time

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 3, 2018

UPDATE: The item was backed with 8,840 Sail Barges sold, over the 5,000 goal.

HasLab's Star Wars Sail Barge now has over 7,600 supporters.  Obviously some must be doubling up, but that ain't bad - ends in just under 12 hours.   For those who haven't been following along at home, the vehicle includes a Yak Face on a Power of the Force cardback (seemingly with a slightly different image and Canadian-style layout) and needed 5,000 people to buy it for Hasbro to start production.   It's $499.99 plus applicable tax, and currently only ships to the USA and Canada unless you go through a third-party or set up your own freight forwarder.

This week in Q&A - Sail Barge Bonus! Look, these questions are going to be stale next week so we had better get through 'em. As of my typing this Hasbro needs under 200 more supporters to get the Barge out, so it looks like it will happen.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,467: Maz Kanata (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, March 28, 2018

The Maz Kanata (The Black Series 6-Inch) is pretty neat - but small! There's a ton of painted detail and great sculpting here, but the shorter character looks to be a normal sized 3 3/4-inch figure in a big box.  She has a trunk, a blaster, and a lightsaber.  Read on!

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, March 25, 2018

This week in Q&A - Vehicular shelf slaughter - what's "good" for a vehicle if the Sail Barge is 5,000? Legs! Sure, let's talk legs. And Customs sure why not. There's other stuff too, including toy store chatter since that part of the business is pretty rocky right now.

Sail Barge Update - Maybe This Will Change Your Mind

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, March 21, 2018

A surge of support on the HasLab Sail Barge came Wednesday morning after EW.com and StarWars.com posted Check Out New Photos of the Fully-Painted Jabba’s Sail Barge Prototype from Hasbro.   While we all expected to see painted pictures before the end of the funding period, we didn't expect that it might include a bonus.   Now take notes on this part, some fans are unclear and you're going to be one of the smart ones.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,464: Clone Captain Rex (The Last Jedi, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, March 19, 2018

Check out the 6-inch Clone Captain Rex.  It's a good one - they put Temura Morrison's face on this animated character, making it the most realistic Clone Trooper with a head of an actor that never portrayed said clone.  It's awesome though.  Read on!
