In 2013, Hasbro made the decision to create a collector focused scale of super-articulated 6" figures. This Black Series line of figures became very popular with collectors who were used to super-detailed and highly posable figures from The Vintage Collection 3 3/4" line. This line which has grown exponentially with each year was not the first time Hasbro attempted a 6" line. During the Power of the Jedi line, which followed the highly overproduced Episode I line of figures, Hasbro debuted the extremely short-lived "Mega" action figure line. This line featured just three figures which had action features and sculpts which featured limited points of articulation. In 2015 with the release of The Force Awakens a third 6" toy line was introduced but this time, these [...]
One thing we love, is finding Star Wars action figures pop-up in media and so when we are looking for new appearances we look to our resident expert Dan Geister. Dan has the sharpest eye for finding figure cameos and since we have been on quarantine there have been a lot of discoveries due to our new normal of watching an abundance of new and old media.

Dan sent along this update for a sequel to one of the few horror films in the database. 1987 – Silent Night, Deadly Night Part 2 The 1985 film Joey, which was released in North America under the name [...]
With both yesterday's new Clone Wars episode showing Ahsoka at her finest and a new Galaxy of Adventures Finn and Poe short we just had to do an update!
On a grocery/toy run today in hopes of finding the new PhotoReal Vintage Collection and/or The Empire Strikes Back Retro Collection waves, I stumbled upon an unexpected discovery, Star Wars Battle Bobblers. Now after having been teased with them last year during New York Comic Con, there has been no noise about them since then beyond a cameo at New York Toy Fair this past February. Target had what appeared to be two of each of the three sets which were present on the shelf. There was no sign of a Vader/Luke set which is featured on the back of the packaging. For those who are not aware of the...uniqueness of these...bobblers, they are essentially mini cartoon styled bobbleheads mounted to a small [...]

Jake recently had the chance to sit down and join the Native American Pop Culture Spirit Guide himself, Scotty White, on his most recent episode of My Star Wars Life podcast. If you are not following Scotty and his Mopcast Network, then you are missing out on tons of great content on all points of pop culture!
