Welcome Toy Runners! Thanks in advance for reading. As many Hasbro figures as I’ve gotten in the last couple weeks, this week was very dry from them. I got some other toys, and have been working on a new diorama set. Check it out by clicking here…
This week Walmart came through and delivered a MINT Paploo. I mean this thing was packaged in a normal sized box with extra padding lying flat on the bottom of the package. I was shocked at how good the condition was for a Walmart exclusive. More…
Welcome friends and readers to another TRT. This week (surprisingly) Hasbro got a lot of my money! Lately it’s been going to other companies. I got a total of 14 Hasbro action figures both in the mail and in the store. Click here to check them out.
Welcome back Toy Runners. I am so sorry about last week, but I took a sick day from everything. So we’re back with the official one-hundredth TRT!! That is very exciting. As previously mentioned, today’s theme is ‘Favorite Figures.’ Please share a photo of your top most favorite Star Wars action figure in the comments! If you have more than one, or want to also pick some non-Star Wars ones you can pick your top 5, so long as 1-2 of them are Star Wars. Good luck picking, and thanks for reading!

These are some of my favorite figures this year. I love video game characters and I hope they make more! I just got my scouts and heavy battle droids in the mail a over the weekend and it looks like they still have some stock available so hurry!
Hello Toy Runners! This week I visited a few more toy stores and found a few good fodder figures for cheap at the Tucson Tanque Verde swap meet. Click here for some photos as well as an announcement about the theme of TRT #100.
My birthday and my father’s fall only about a week apart from the other, so, since he is a collector as well, we take an annual trip around the Phoenix area to all the local collector stores. It’s always fun, and there’s always something good to look at! Click here to see some wonderfully filled Star Wars sections.
Hello again Toy Runners! We are nearing 100 issues of TRT which is pretty crazy to me! Should we do a special theme for the 100th issue? I’ve got some new customs to share with you today so please click here to check them out! Then leave your photos of new finds in the comments and/or post them on Instagram!
Hello, toy runners! Welcome back to another fine Tuesday. This weekend my wife and I went to the Chandler Fashion Center mall, and perused through the shops. We went into a new toy store called Toy Temple. I also updated my TVC Obi-Wan with a definitive head sculpt from Spartan118 Industries. Check out my finds by clicking here!
Well, here’s something you don’t see very often… Toys! In the store! It was a miracle. This particular Walmart in San Tan, AZ must have gotten a Hasbro shipment in as I found a fresh case of repacked TVC figures, repacked GI Joe figures, and brand new Marvel Legends that coincide with several recent shows and even some upcoming ones… Amazing how Hasbro can do that.
Hello Toy Runners! I waited till I got home to write today because I had a delivery coming. I got a lot of good stuff this week, so please click here to check it out! Share with us in the comments your week’s finds as well!
All these reveals today kept me busy! I posted this on our Instagram page, but just am getting the chance to write about it now. This last week I completed a custom for a friend of Emperor Palpatine as seen in The Rise of Skywalker. Click through to check it out and please show off your own weekly finds in the comments!
I went on several toy runs this week. Nearly daily I could be found at a Target or Walmart on my lunch break or after work. I picked up a couple toys in the store. I also got some new toys in the mail. None of them were Star Wars, however. I’ll share the photos of my new toys in the article here, but I want to hear your thoughts about it. Where are all the Star Wars toys?
Toy Runners… I have a problem. I accumulate too many parts for customs and then have a thousand projects to work on and finish them slowly! Does anyone else have a problem with this kind of accumulation of collectibles? I’m sure we all do in one way or another. It’s a good thing we can talk about it in the comments…
This week I’ve been playing a new Star Wars video game. Well, new to me as I never had the chance to play it before it’s re-release this week. I know this one is a favorite among Star Wars fans and gamers, and after dumping probably 6 hours or more into it this week, I can see why! Now if I could only get ahold of the Delta Squad 4 pack without giving up my kidney… Click here to share with us what you’ve been collecting this week!
It’s not the change we were expecting, either! While we were waiting for an orange card with a cropped image a running change to the figure itself showed up. One of the biggest gripes for collectors with this figure was the lack of sensor bars on the chest armor. This detail appeared in the initial sculpted digital prototype shown by Hasbro when the figure was announced. I am thrilled to see this corrected in a running change! Thanks to Dustin W. for the photos. What do you think about this addition? Will you try and secure all 3 versions of this figure? Let us know in the comments.

After just hearing about these “pipeline” figures in a recent Hasbro livestream, we’re rather surprised to see prototypes already! They look incredible! Head over to our friends at Banthaskull.com for more pictures! I’m very excited for these releases. IG-11 being all-new is shocking in a really good way. Let us know what you think in the comments!
