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.
Hello Toy Runners! This week I did my usual rounds to Target, etc. and I actually found some toys! I also visited a local small business called Explorer’s Emporium and found a fine selection of Vallejo paint. Click here to learn a little more about my week in Star Wars.
Hello Toy Runners! Please check out today’s article by clicking here. I’ve got a fitting custom for the announcement of Kenobi beginning production yesterday, as well as a video game custom.
Welcome, readers, to this week’s Toy Run Tuesday. I’ve been creating more work for myself lately by accumulating new parts for customs and not finishing them… But at least that means I have some nice new parts to share with you! I also received an order from Tunghori’s new website. Check it out by clicking here!

Either way you will enjoy this March Madness bracket because it’s all about The Vintage Collection! @swtvc on Instagram is running a bracket this month to see what the most wanted TVC figures are.

Be sure to fill them out and vote in @swtvc‘s polls this month and see how you did!
This week was pretty good when it came to collecting! For Toy Run Tuesday I have some new photos I took of my figures. Toy Photography is fun, but harder than it looks. I also actually found a figure in the store. Click here to take a look!
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!
Happy Tuesday, Toy Runners! This week’s toy runs have availed me no new figures, however I took the chance to update my shelf displays and would like to share a photo. If you have new finds this week I’d love to see them, but let’s use today’s article to show off your collection! Click here to leave a comment!
One of my favorite Disneyland blogs, Endor Express, shared some wonderful photos of the new Galaxy’s Edge trading post in Downtown Disney, Anaheim. Will you be going to the outpost any time soon? What exclusive items would you like to buy the most? Let us know in the comments!
Hello, Toy Runners! I’m happy to be back, and today I have another custom figure to share with you. It’s been pretty slow lately with collecting. No new preorders, and nothing being shipped lately. Unless you’ve gotten the most recent TBS/TVC waves earlier than most collectors, we’re in a bit of a lull. What do you do when you’re not getting new toys? Let us know in the comments!
Hello Toy Runners, it’s Tuesday evening, and a fine time for a TRT. Please click here to post your weekly finds, collections, and customs in the comments!
According to CNBC, “sales of [Hasbro’s] licensed content from entertainment studios fell 12% to $1.08 billion for the full year, [but] its sales of Star Wars grew by 70% over that period.” That’s a pretty hefty percentage for a single year. What on earth, do you suppose, could have possibly contributed to such an increase in sales? That’s rhetorical, by the way. The article without stating it directly basically says “The Mandalorian was really great for business.” Do you expect Hasbro to increase their product due to these sales? How much do you think The Black Series vs The Razorcrest campaign contributed to these numbers? Let us know what you think in the comments!
Hello Toy Runners! We return to our regular weekly programming of Toy Run Tuesday, and today I have a couple photos of a custom figure I’m working on. You’ll get to see some behind the scenes photos of a more in-depth custom. It may be shocking to behold! Or not. Just click here to take a look for yourself.
Hello, Toy Runners! Another Tuesday has passed, so I have several new acquisitions to share with you. I received my Tantive IV playsets, and did a couple custom “fixes” for two Mandalorian TVC figures. Take a look by clicking here!

Hello again, Toy Runners! It’s that time of the week again and I have a new custom to share with you! First I wanted to remind everyone of the giveaway I posted yesterday. Let’s see your finds and collections from this past week in the comments! Nothing to share? Post about what you’re hoping to get this holiday season! There is always something you can tell us about your week in Star Wars!
Some of you may know that I run a custom figure page on Facebook called John Morog Customs. I post a lot of my custom work on Toy Run Tuesdays here, but don’t advertise my page much since I don’t want to lead our readers away from the site. That being said, I wanted to inform JTA readers that I am running a giveaway on Facebook for anyone interested. This year was a tough one for everybody, and I have been very grateful to our readers and staff for the discussions we have that kind of pull us out of this crazy world for a little while. It may be small, but I wanted to do something to give back to the community! Click through for more info.
