And so, the big day finally arrived: Force Friday 2016 and the worldwide launch of Star Wars Rogue One figures and collectibles! I staked out Walmart at midnight and then hit Target at 8AM, all in the name of getting all the Rogue One toys I had my eye on… and I did! Over the next few weeks I’ll be reviewing all of my favorite (and least favorite) new action figures, but let’s start with a review of perhaps today’s hottest release. The first shipment sold out online in under 5 minutes–do the 6″ Black Series Death Trooper figures live up to the hype?Continue Reading →
When the first three Hasbro Star Wars Rogue One toys went up for order at the start of the month, it wasn’t the 6″ Black Series Jyn Erso figure or the U-Wing vehicle that sold out first (in fact, those are still available for pre-order at discounted prices right now). No, it was the Black Series Electronic Stormtrooper helmet that quickly sold through. So clearly there’s quite a bit of buzz surrounding this wearable prop replica helmet. And Amazon intends to capitalize–the Amazon exclusive Black Series Shadow Stormtrooper helmet has now been revealed!Continue Reading →
The day has almost arrived: In just two short nights we’ll all be lining up at our local Toys R Us stores for our first official opportunity to buy Star Wars Rogue One toys!

One of these items is a Target Exclusive addition to the popular line of low-priced Jakks Star Wars Big Figs: 18″ Unmasked Kylo Ren vs Rey figures!Continue Reading →

Funko Star Wars POP Vinyl collectors knew something was up when Gamestop stores cancelled thousands of pre-orders for the Qui-Gon Jinn POP Vinyl earlier this week, and now we know why.

Though we’re still a week away from the Star Wars Rogue One toys being officially released on Force Friday 2016, the monumental force (no pun intended) that is Rogue One toys simply cannot seem to be kept off store shelves. And so, this past week, another store-exclusive Black Series Rogue One figure began popping up in stores (and being scalped online). But now, it’s officially–Hasbro has now revealed the exclusive 6″ Black Series Imperial Hovertank Pilot figure!Continue Reading →
If there’s one thing that Funko fans love (or is it “love to hate”?), it’s Walgreens exclusives! But love them or hate them (or love to hate them), there’s no denying the Walgreens Funko POP Vinyls are some of the best-selling Star Wars POPs. And this fall, we can plus-one our collection of Funko Star Wars Walgreens collections, as the exclusive Funko Sabine POP Vinyl with helmet has now been revealed!Continue Reading →

Read on for my photos, review and full spoilers for the Death Star Box…Continue Reading →
