Funko has updated today announcing their next Hikari Sofubi vinyl figure – the Kiln (First Order) Stormtrooper. Limited to only 400 pieces.
This week on TOY RUN, Criz Bee and Jake remember Carrie Fisher and her numerous Princess Leia action figures that have been released over the past 40 years. In addition, Jayson Krebsbach from Yakface.com stops by to reflect on collecting Star Wars action figures in 2016. Together they discuss how Hasbro treated the 3 ¾” and 6” Rogue One and Force Awakens lines. All this plus the latest in Star Wars action figure news from the last few weeks on Episode 41 of TOY RUN – The Star Wars Action Figure Cast!
Sideshow Collectibles is sending out notifications to those that preordered the Hot Toys Luke Skywalker (The Force Awakens) Sixth Scale figure. Originally solicited with an estimated arrival period between January-March 2017, it has now been revised to July-August 2017.
Released in the UK a couple weeks ago, reports are coming in that the Elite Series Die Cast First Order TIE Fighter Pilot is now available in the US exclusively at Disney Stores. This figure is not available online as of this post but if you’re interested you may wish to brave the post-holiday mall traffic to try to secure one of them as the die cast Elite Series line is on sale for $14.99 each.
Thanks to Pete V. for the heads up.

PROS: Excellent sculpting and deco, and the lights are a perfectly festive touch. LED lights are bright and the button batteries are included (preinstalled). 3 lighting modes give the collector options, although I suspect most will choose the solid (non-flashing) setting.
CONS: Must be a PG Member to purchase ($120) which will probably drive the after market price higher in the future. Fragile antennae could easily break if not handled properly.

We have updated the toyguide entry for the 6″ Black Series C-3PO (Resistance Base) #29 figure to include the “dark arm” variant that is now shipping to stores. Sadly, it appears that Hasbro overcorrected in their attempt to portray Threepio’s superfluous coloration from The Force Awakens.

It was something we mentioned in our initial review of this figure and now it looks like Hasbro has addressed the oversight as they have issued a variant to the 6″ Black Series C-3PO (Resistance Base) figure. Instead of the cheap looking plain red arm, they have now given it a proper, screen accurate deco. I’ll definitely be picking this version up.
Thanks to Rebelscum for their report.

In case you don’t read too deeply in to our Toyguide Update for the Walgreens Exclusive 6″ Black Series C-3PO, we felt that a standalone post for this was warranted. It turns out that the Walgreens version has a distinct sculpt to its abdomen and is not a simple repaint of the Resistance Base version.
