Get ready for more aggravation. The Walmart exclusive “The Ninety Six” figures are clearly for carded collectors looking to have a modern counterpart to the original vintage Kenner run of Star Wars action figures. But once again, they’re are arriving in padded envelopes, and most samples are being reported and “severely damaged,” ours included. How difficult is it to code these items as collectibles so they can guarantee they get packed in a box instead of a flimsy envelope? Let us know of your arrivals.

The Princess Leia Organa figure in The Black Series [Publishing Program] line is better than you think. . And it comes with more accessories than some “deluxe” figures. (Remember that scam?) (more….)

Review: Din Djarin (Morak) - TVC - VC251

The Din Djarin (Morak) figure in The Vintage Collection is mostly reused parts, but you shouldn’t let that fool you. It’s an excellent action figure. (more….)

A new episode of Andor dropped today and after the escape from Ferrix it is the beginning of an all new arc and chapter in the series. Several new characters are introduced, we finally meet Mon Mothma and ISB Officer Dedra Meero, as well as a few rebels. As in episode 1 things are rather slow at the beginning of the new arc, but still very intriguing. Read my spoiler review for Aldhani by clicking here or on the banner and let’s discuss the latest Andor episode!
