This week we catch up on Mando Mondays and the announced Star Wars figures for Black Series and The Vintage Collection. Will we get the entire Bad Batch team at some point? Does it really matter if the announced Zutton figure is named Snaggletooth or not? In I Wanted Everything Jake knocked off a few big missing pieces for his complete Disney Parks Droid Factory collection. Dan finds a super cool KB Toys Phantom Menace sign and Mac proves he’s a hypocrite  and gets The Carbon Freeze Chamber play set. It’s a shorter show [...]

Mando Mondays #5 Hasbro Press Release

Continuing what Lucasfilm began in October, today was yet another round of #MandoMondays merchandise reveals from the hit series The Mandalorian. Hasbro's offerings these last two weeks have made us very happy because last year at Washington State Summer Con, Jake had the pleasure of interviewing the amazing Carl Weathers on stage. His Mando directorial debut has garnered lots of acclaim with many calling it their favorite yet! Now while the episode is not even a week old yet, Hasbro has announced Weathers' character Greef Carga in his Season 2 look for The Vintage Collection. This will be the second 3 3/4" figure to bare this look as only last week's The Black Series Carga figure will feature his Season 1 outfit. The second [...]

Mando Mondays #3 Hasbro Press Release

This morning Hasbro and Lucasfilm launched their third #mandomondays event and announced two different Black Series items. The first was the Remant Trooper from The Mandalorian. This figure was expected as it is both an easy repaint and was already released in The Vintage Collection line. The downside to this figure is that it is a Target exclusive which means purchasing it online will be difficult as figures typically sell out in minutes. Folks will want to hit brick and mortar stores later this fall to secure this figure. The second item was the piece that was hinted at in last week's This Week in Star Wars episode. The Mandalorian Electronic Helmet will be popular next spring with cosplayers and bucket collectors. Hasbro has [...]
