More Star Wars Action Figure Appearances from Dan!

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. So let's begin our update to our Lights! Camera! Action (Figures)! database with an update to a pre-existing entry! 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 [...]

4th Anniversary of the 1st #ForceFriday

While today we are exactly one month away from Triple Force Friday, today is also the 4th anniversary of the very first #ForceFriday. September 4th, 2015 was the official release of The Force Awakens merchandise. The build up to the event was on par with The Phantom Menace back in May of 1999! The current form of #ForceFriday began 4-years-ago but the idea behind it began in 1999 with Toys 'R' Us's Midnight Madness. To date, there have been the following celebrations of new movie merch: Midnight Madness May 1999 - The Phantom Menace May 2002 - Attack of the Clones April  2005 - Revenge of the Sith August 2008 - The Clone Wars #ForceFriday September 2015 - The Force Awakens #RogueFriday September 2016 - [...]

Solo’s 12″ Captain Phasma, She’s Real!

After being teased for months on the 12" reissues of Wal*Mart's exclusive R2-D2 and BB-8 in SOLO packaging, we now have confirmation of Captain Phasma's existence. Thanks to  collector and all around great guy Paul Van Dyk, this 12" reissue (from The Force Awakens line) has been found in Canada. We expect that just like the two Astromech droids before her, this figure will eventually trickle down into the states in the following months. Clad in distinctive metallic armor, Captain Phasma commands the First Order's legions of troopers. Having survived the destruction of Starkiller Base, she has a personal score to settle with the Resistance. Now for those collecting this line, this figure is no different from her previous release (despite what the new description on the back of the [...]

“The Parking Lot” – New Site Section

Welcome to our newest visual database on the site: The Parking Lot! Since 2015, Star Wars has produced a massive amount of media in comparison to the proceeding 4 decades. Four films, three animated shows, and various online micro-series have made for a rich and diverse era of Star Wars but it has also become a challenge for Hasbro and other companies to produce the deep character selections they have in the past. In order to encourage and hopefully inspire, we have teamed with fellow collector @Finndormoon to produce a list of the major and key characters, droids, beasts, vehicles, and playsets we would love to see Hasbro revisit and release in future lines. We have broken our list down into two categories, the kid-focused 5POA line, [...]

16 Parallels Supreme Leader Snoke shares with…

Now before we begin, let the record show that we are completely fine with the possibility that Star Wars Rebel’s Ezra Bridger does not pan out to be the Supreme Leader of the First Order.  The point of this exercise is to point out the numerous similarities we have found these two characters have in common.  Now since their similarities have continued to increase since last month's debut of Season 3 of Rebels, we felt it was due time to make our full case.  And since the fate of Ezra nor the identity of Snoke has yet to be made known, this is entirely an exercise based on observable speculation.  The information covered in this theory stem from The Force Awakens film and novelization, Seasons 1-3 [...]
