A Guy Walks into the Cantina How far our modern Star Wars figure collections have come. Even an optimistic fan of the cantina characters didn’t have high hopes for getting a figure of Leesub Sirln, a.k.a. Weird Girl. But she is a part of our bar scenes now.

As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a gangster. No, wait, that’s not right. Sorry, start over. Ever since I was a kid, I’ve been collecting. Without even knowing it, I had the gene. I kept my  vinyl record albums and singles lined up straight, in the order I bought…

ToyGuru wrote: "The new 6 packs should be out in a few weeks too. Look for the Hawk and Eclipso packs only at Target! TG " This news is only partially great. Great that the Hawk set is shipping (3 new characters, 1 new cool variant costume). Disappointing that Mattel is still producing the Eclipso pack…

Action figures. Before 1964 the two words never were put together. Then Hasbro came out with G.I. Joe and since boys couldn’t and wouldn’t be caught dead playing with dolls – unless you count putting a naked Ken on top of a naked Barbie – action figures came into being. Up until the debut of…
