Just after last week’s post went live I was able to find the whole Emperor TVC wave at a local Target! I was so happy to find them in store. IG-11 is the stand-out figure from the wave in my opinion (the others are great too). I wanted to share a couple thoughts on the figure, so click here to take a look. Be sure to leave your weekly finds in the comments as well!
This week I got some new toys! One in particular is a modern update to a vintage Star Wars collectible I’ve wanted for a long time. I’m really happy I got this as it showed up on Hasbro’s eBay store only for a short time, and I wasn’t able to secure the vintage counterpart before the value shot up recently. Check it out by clicking here!
GameSpot has revealed four new figures available for preorder on September 24th, 2021. Check out their article for the main reveal. What do you think of these repaints? As far as gimmicks go, this one is pretty good!
Welcome back folks! It’s a fine Tuesday afternoon and I want to report on my weekly findings and new collectibles! I hope to see yours in the comments. Click here to check out my new custom! It’s such a shame Hasbro hasn’t made these already for either scale.
We were floored by the announcement of the Stormtrooper build-up pack yesterday. Hasbro let us know that they plan to continue with releases in that format, which begs the obvious question… What battle packs do you want to see next? The stormtrooper set is a great place to start, but this new option provides so many opportunities that we’d be remiss if we didn’t talk about some of those possibilities.
Good evening, Toy Runners! My internet was down until now, so today’s post is a bit late. I am working on some new customs I wanted to share. I also wanted to talk about distribution a little bit and probably rant a bit too. Click here to hear me out.
We just had our 100th TRT which had a great turnout and lots of comments. The 104th TRT is also special as it marks the 2nd anniversary of the weekly column (52 per year). Today we’ll look back on some of the top posts of the last year. Click here to check it out! Please share with us in the comments what some of your favorite collecting moments have been in the last year.
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…

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!
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.
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!
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!
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.
