Star Wars Collectible News, Photos, and Reviews

Author Archives: Paul

It’s an all-new PLAYSET in the new Droid Depot category! It feels like Disney took the medical wing of Echo Base and mixed it with the 1979 Kenner Droid Factory playset and came up with this. See how 2019’s The Droid Factory works in our Research Droids Reviews today! Be sure to leave your thoughts in our comments section, vote in the poll or comment about it on our Facebook page.

Vintage Kenner RDRs Redux: Leia (Hoth Outfit) - ESB - 1981

I know at best this will be an unscientific and anecdotal gathering of information, but I would like to see what collectors’ tastes are when it comes to how they collect Star Wars figures, focusing on one area of collecting. In the comments, please let us know what you obtain from the Star Wars Hasbro brand. (Don’t be ashamed of anything you buy! Please list it. Be a proud collector, no matter what it is! We’ll deal with any hecklers.) Then next to each type of figure or product focus, please put if you are an opener, both an opener and a loose collector, or strictly a loose collector as well as your area of focus. (more….)

Hasbro To Phase Out Plastic From New Toy And Game Packaging

Hasbro has announced today that, beginning in 2020, it plans to start phasing out plastic from new product packaging, including plastic elements like polybags, elastic bands, shrink wrap, window sheets, and blister packs. The company’s ambition is to eliminate virtually all plastic in packaging for new products by the end of 2022. There is not ONE mention of the Star Wars line in the article. Perhaps they know this would never be an option for the collectors of this line. See the full story at Business Wire.

"Hasta La Vista!" To The Vintage Collection!

OK, perhaps “Hasta la vista!” is a BIT of an exaggeration, but what’s going on at retail when it comes to The Vintage Collection? TARGET has nothing beyond wave 1. And every Walmart near me has flat out removed it from the microscopic Star Wars section it maintains, which currently just has cheap roleplay lightsabers and Solo-era TBS6 figures.  Clearly, The Black Series 6″ is faring no better. Yes, we’re gearing up for Triple Force Friday, so we’re likely in a transitional stage, but how can collectors vote with their wallets if there is nothing out there to purchase and support? Goodness, gracious me.

Thank You For Your Part In Helping Others In Need

In Pennsylvania, there are over 14K children in the Foster Care System. 4K-5K of those 14K are in my immediate area of Philadelphia. Through no fault of their own, these innocent victims get bounced around from house to house, and most have literally NOTHING in the form of earthly possessions. (more….)

Retro Collection Boba Fett? Is It On The Horizon?

Although priced with an MSRP for a The Vintage Collection figure, Walmart has listed a Retro Collection Boba Fett figure. With the runaway success of the first wave at TARGET and now Entertainment Earth, there’s no doubt the line’s continuing, but will Boba Fett be one of the figures in the next wave? Special thanks to friend Mark for the alert!
