Star Wars: Resistance First Look Thoughts

Today Entertainment Weekly and released a behind the scenes featurette on the upcoming Star Wars: Resistance. Meet Team Fireball - Star Wars Resistance on Disney Video This series which is a design departure from previous Star Wars animated projects is set to be geared toward younger audiences. The style is self-admittedly anime based and feels a lot like Netflix's Voltron series. The series which is set in the time leading up to The Force Awakens appears to feature a lot of great new ships, unique droids, and Original Trilogy aliens. We are very excited about all of these elements as they lend themselves well to becoming toys (very toyetic). As ships have not been a huge priority for Hasbro of late, we can [...]

Where are the 12″ Figures!?!

We here at have a guilty pleasure in our collecting habits which is that we love the modern 12" Star Wars figure line! Since the release of Solo: A Star Wars Story in April we have not had the typically 2-3 waves and store exclusives that accompany a film's release. To date, the only 12" figures from Solo to receive wide release include Han, Qi'ra and, an Imperial Patrol Trooper. A Kylo Ren is also included in this wave but it is simply a reissue from The Last Jedi. Now Hasbro has shown at various conventions additional figures but here in the States, these figures have been mostly elusive and/or non-existent. For those looking for these figures, you are in luck as we are here to point you in [...]

Space Wars Headhammer Review

At this year's San Diego Comic-Con, Super 7 who has not only based their line look and action figure designs off of Kenner, released yet another tribute piece and this time it is a pretty deep cut. The Alien - "Space Wars Headhammer" Tribute Xenomorph 3.75" ReAction Figure with coin which retailed for $15 at the convention is a clear nod to the "original" alien Hammerhead from Kenner's 1978 Star Wars line. Now how this repaint of the ReAction Alien figure even makes any sense is because when Kenner was designing the prototype Alien figure back in 1979, they used Hammerhead as the base of their initial sculpt. Image courtesy of ReAction's SDCC release would not the be the first time Hammerhead's classic [...]

Just this week, Wave 3 of the Solo [...]
