May the 4th Day 2021 [Update]

It is that time again, when the calendar switches out of April, to begin our month of Star Wars love! We like to proclaim the whole month of May is a time to celebrate Star Wars, as it holds not only the May the 4th holiday, but anniversaries for most of the films as well. This year we are starting our holiday celebrations on Monday and will continue to celebrate the Saga through Wednesday! There are those who turn up their nose at the fan-originated holiday which has now become a staple for retailers and Disney/Lucasfilm but we love any chance to pay love and respect to the franchise that has brought us some much joy over the past four decades. Although we will still [...]

New Hasbro Star Wars Surprise Eggs

Picture Courtesy of Galaxy of Toys Our friend and host of the Galaxy of Toys Podcast Jason Luttrull has discovered a new Hasbro Star Wars action figure item on the market. Found at his local QFC grocery store, Luttrull discovered a slightly larger than a football-sized egg which according to the fine print included, "6 figures and 1 mini-comic". Picture Courtesy of Galaxy of Toys Upon purchasing the egg, he found it to include two Galaxy of Adventures 3 3/4" figures, two 3 3/4" The Last Jedi era figures and one Micro Force Series 3 blind pack (which includes 2 figurines).

2019 – A Year in Review of Star Wars Action Figures

For Star Wars action figure collectors, 2019 will be a year that will stand out and be talked about for years to come. The final year of this decade has been an unusual one in the world of figure collecting. It has provided us historic toys while also altering 40-year-old traditions and the combination of the two has us entering a new decade uncertain about the future of the hobby, especially when it comes to certain scales. We'll begin our year in review by the various figure scales Hasbro now supports. By the Numbers When it comes to the numbers, there were about 200 figures released throughout 2019 and as you can see 3 3/4" figures outnumbered the amount of 6" figures released. The breakdown [...]

The Rise of Skywalker Figures

With yesterday's World Premiere from the "blue" carpet in Hollywood, The Rise of Skywalker has finally been released onto the world. While we await the public release of the film this Thursday, December 19th, we thought we would take a minute and highlight the figures released from the final chapter of the Skywalker Saga. For Episode IX, Hasbro chose, for the first time in 40-years, not to create a dedicated line for the latest Star Wars film. Because of this, fans have seen a drastic reduction in the number of figures available at the release of a new film. Hasbro has mentioned that they have had to hold up to 75% of their product back from retailers until after the film debut due to their spoiler nature. With just [...]

German Comic Con Dortmund Reveals

In a surprise move, today at German Comic Con Dortmund Hasbro revealed a few new figures for both The Black Series and Galaxy of Adventures lines.  To be exact, two new 6" figures were revealed and four new Galaxy of Adventures figures. For the first time this year, no new 3 3/4" figures were announced. All of today's announcements are scheduled for Spring of next year. Just this last week, we managed to pick up Wave 2 of the Galaxy of Adventures figures, making these next four Wave 3. And if Wave 3 is anything like the third waves for the 3 3/4" lines of the recent past these could be incredibly difficult to find at first. But of course, only time will tell. Hasbro [...]

A Triple #ForceFriday Reflection

This past weekend saw the release of the new merchandise for not only Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker but also The Mandalorian and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. While the title implies this should have been the biggest celebration by three of Star Wars merchandise in years, in reality, it included none of the fanfare, bells nor whistles we’ve seen in the past four years of Disney-era Star Wars films. Unlike every major Star Wars film merchandise release date since 1999’s The Phantom Menace, there was no wide-spread midnight event taking place across the country or world. This is mostly due to the lack of Toys ‘R’ Us in the United States and fellow retailers like Target not having anyone to compete with for [...]
