Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,978

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, January 11, 2013

It's time for more Obi-Wan Kenobi! There's a bunch of these.  This one was packed with the Jedi High Council sets, or as you know them "the seats and floor we buy with some figures we could do without."  Kenobi has no lightsaber here... yet you're buying him for the accessories. 

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,977

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, January 10, 2013

Depending on where you lived this Obi-Wan Kenobi was a tough find in 2005.  I never saw it in the stores, but on the bright side it's basically worthless now.  Such is life!  Cheap things come to those who wait.  And did you know there's a new Callgrim drop tomorrow? This has nothing to do with this site, but eh, plugs.

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, January 9, 2013

So there's a show coming up called the The (In)action Figure Show at The Clutter Gallery.  One such figure is Troopor, a Masters of the Universe-inspired 5 1/2-inch tall figure from Man or Monster? Studios.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,976

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, January 9, 2013

The Green R9 Series Astromech Droid is one of those pesky "new" figures in the Star Tours droid part bins.  If you want an R9, you gotta go to Orlando.  Some colors look better than others, and the green ain't bad. 

Galactic Hunter Video Theater Presents: The Clone Wars - Missing In Action

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, January 8, 2013

This week on The Clone Wars: Let's get back to basics with "Missing In Action." After a few fairly non-traditional episodes, we return to more action with #100. Wow! We made it! Uh... so how many more episodes do we have left? Hopefully lots. More after the break.

It was pointed out to me today that there's some good news for our Canadian readers.  Both of you will be happy to know that Zellers is turning most of its locations over to Target, with a few going to Walmart, over the next few months.  This story has more details.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,975

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, January 8, 2013

Depending on where you shopped, either the red or tan Battle Droid was everywhere... and the other one wasn't.  It's a five-jointed figure with removable limbs, based on a mold which debuted in 2002.  In 2002, it came with C-3PO, a factory conveyor belt, a magnetic head, and was $10.  In 2012, it comes with a gun and a stand.

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, January 7, 2013

So, uh, hunh.  No Droid Factory.   Well... not much we can say other than let's look at the 1,974th entry in our ongoing series with another Clone Trooper.  This one came from a limited articulation 3-pack in 2003.  What makes it special?

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, January 6, 2013

Welcome to Q&A 2013! We're back for another year of... well, apparently looking back at what's going on with the toys you never saw in 2012. We talk up vehicles new and old, discuss 2013 nomenclature, and other stuff.  You may as well read this after you start downloading your email from (I hope) a couple of weeks away from the office!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,973

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, January 4, 2013

From earlier in 2012, this Obi-Wan Kenobi was resculpted from previous releases to look closer to the cartoon counterpart while adding a swell backpack.  Or, this Obi-Wan Kenobi ate up a tooling slot that could've gone to a new character, of which we pretty much got none in 2012.  Take your pick.  Either way, it's a nicely-sculpted figure with decent gear.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,972

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, January 3, 2013

Check out the Imperial Navy Commando, part of the last big boxed set we got based on the lesser-console exclusive levels of The Force Unleashed.  It's a good figure, despite being unrecognizable to fans of the game series who played it on the Xbox 360 or Playstation 3.
