Star Wars Original Trilogy - Black Series Luke and Wedge and Princess Leia Yavin Ceremony

More homages to the original trilogy which simply can't be beat. The Black Series gives us X-Wing pilot Wedge who made it through A New Hope, Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi. We also get Yavin Ceremony Luke Skywalker. The Luke figure is numbered #100 - which of course there have been more than that if you count exclusives, but kind of a cool milestone.

The latest 3-3/4" inch figures include Princess Leia at the Yavin Medal Ceremony. Also, not sure how the Shadow Trooper ended up in the "Star Wars - A New Hope" bucket, but oh well, still a cool figure.

McFarlane Fortnite - Ragnarok

These McFarlane figures are so awesome, and addictive. And they seem to be coming fast and furious now. Is this a long term line or is McFarlane surfing the wave until the next video game fad takes over. Regardless, love the creativity of this line.

Here is Ragnarok. Once again, these are 7 inch figures with great detail and articulation.

Mega Construx Game of Thrones Dragons

I've seen the building sets at Target and Gamestop. Don't plan on getting them, but these fun little sets of the dragons which come in an dragon egg container was outstanding. Was hard to say no.

Star Wars Black Series Mandalorian - Cara Dune and IG11

If you haven't watched The Mandalorian, you're missing out. The creators are really bringing back the original Star Wars aesthitic to this wild west bounty hunter tale. IG11 - the bounty droid - stole the show in Episode 1. We haven't seen Cara Dune yet. Very interested in her story - and her heavy machine gun looking.

And if anyone is wondering why the Offworld Jawa was released so early, watch episode 2. Sheer awesomeness!

Jazwares Fortnite - Birthday Llama Loot Pinata 3 - Skull Ranger

This is the third Pinata offered by Jazwares. The first one came with Rust Lord. The second with Dark Voyager. The third comes with my favorite - female Skull Ranger. Love these Skull Troopers.  The pinata comes packed with gear and weapons in individual baggies and also a lot of confetti so beware when opening.
