Happy Star Wars Day! This year for all of us, celebrating May the 4th will be a little different from year's past. We typically host an event at our middle school and attend a Mariners or Rainers Star Wars Night but with most of the country staying home we will be celebrating distantly. But the great thing about Star Wars is the magic happens no matter the number of fans around. We plan on celebrating today in the following ways: Watching the series finale of The Clone Wars on Disney+ Watching Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian also on Disney+ Joining a Microsoft Team Meeting with Anthony Daniels Checking in on the numerous live-tweeting Star Wars events courtesy of Emerald City Comic Con Opening some Star Wars [...]
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).

Hasbro's squishy-miniature line of figures continues this holiday season with a series of blind packaged tubes, entitled Micro Force WOW! In what is sure to be a hit for Wal*Mart shoppers looking for stocking stuffers, this line will cease being a Wal*Mart exclusive in the new year. This latest wave of Micro Force includes Star Wars stickers and the very first Star Wars: Resistance merchandise by Hasbro and just about any manufacturer. Pictured on the side of the box is both the pirate captain Kragen Gorr and the Astromech R1-J5 aka "Bucket". One the same day of this press release, our friend and fellow podcaster from This Week in Star Wars and Galaxy of Toys Podcast, Matt Fox found them at his local Wal*Mart on the [...]

Happy Canada Day! Our good friend Mike "Tarkin" MacDonald and co-host of the terrific The Sandcrawler Podcast shares once again with us a Star Wars-themed celebration of Canada! It’s been three years since Jake was kind enough to post my little action figure tribute to my favourite Rebel pilot on my country’s birthday so I thought it was time for an update and it was also time for Dutch Vander to bring along a fellow Canadian, Biggs Darklighter. But wait a minute, Biggs is from Tatooine, isn’t he? Well yeah, but the actor that played Biggs in Star Wars, Garrick Hagon, is also Canadian. Tell you what, let’s just do the crawl… Happy 150th Birthday Canada and May the Force and Figures be you!
