Name That…Nice to Meet You!

Name That…Nice to Meet You!

It’s kind of sad the simple handshake has pretty much fallen off the radar these days to fear of cooties.

Tycho Celchu (A-Wing Pilot)

Not too long ago, I managed to track down a few figures I was missing from Hasbro’s Star Wars 30th Anniversary Collection, and today I’ll tell you about one of them, Rebellion pilot Tycho Celchu.

Nope. I’ve never “got” abstract art.

Name That…Froghat

What exactly is a Foghat? Does it have a light like a lighthouse? Does it come on 8-track? I miss Dan Stark from the show The Good Guys.

First Order Snowtrooper

First Order Snowtrooper

One aspect I really enjoyed from Episode VII was the variety of environments visited by the heroes, from the arid wastes of Jakku to the alpine ranges of Starkiller Base. And of course, they encountered a suitable array of enemies on each one.

Nien Nunb (Episode VII)

Nien Nunb (Episode VII)

Following my affinity for Star Wars aliens and droids, I was particularly happy to see Nien Nunb return to the screen in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Of course, he was still used in a minor role but it was good to see him still on duty and even better to know Hasbro would make a new action figure of him.

Hassk Thug

In many ways, the seventh movie in the Star Wars saga felt somewhat like a rethread of themes we knew from the previous two trilogies. Among other things, we got to see desert planets, immense weapons of mass destruction and last but not least, a place where the most disparate creatures hung out together while relaxing and having a drink.

Lil Bombshells Hawkgirl

Lil Bombshells Hawkgirl

So, I was maybe a little luke warm on Harley Quinn in this line. I had a slow week toy hunting, and bought a second blind can. I got Hawkgirl. Now, I really like the Hawkgirl Bombshell statue. She’s exudes a lot of fun. To start with the scale and style match Harley. You can […]
