Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,180: Captain Rex (The Clone Wars - Yoda Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, August 21, 2015

Hey, remember those waves of figures in Yoda-themed packaging that never made it out in the USA?  Well, this Captain Rex is one of them - he has different deco than the 2012 release, plus added knee joints.   Is it worth tracking down this mostly European release?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,179: R2-Series Astromech Droid Grey and White

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, August 20, 2015

The R2-Series Astromech Droid Grey and White  from Disney's droid part bins look a lot like R2-Q2, an exclusive from 2006.  Since there may be more than one of it in the movie, is it different enough to be interesting - or the same enough to be the same?  Read on!

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, August 19, 2015

Hey kids, it's Clone Commander Doom!  Based on the 6th season episodes, this movie-style version of a Clone Wars figure is nice.  Not perfect, but nice.   Did you get yours yet?  Maybe you should track one down - read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,177: Princess Leia Organa (Boushh, The Black Seres)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, August 18, 2015

With or without her helmet, the new 3 3/4-inch Princess Leia Organa (Boushh) seems to share a digital sculpt with the 6-inch version.  You'll see differences - this one has a dedicated detonator in her hand, and less face paint - but it's still pretty good.  Read on!

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, August 16, 2015

This week in Q&A: Let's talk about The Hasbro License! Do you know how long Hasbro has the Star Wars license? I do! Also Mosep - will we see his ilk again? ...maybe. And Force Friday because we're all cranky and waiting in line for the purposes of corporate publicity sucks.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,176: R4-Series Astromech Droid White with Red and Silver

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, August 14, 2015

It's not R4-E1, or really all that close.   The R4-Series Astromech Droid White with Red and Silver reminds me of that droid, but all the patterns are different - check out the unique feet, torso, and the dome markings similar to the blue R4Read on!

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, August 13, 2015

The R2-Series Astromech Droid Black and Silver looks a lot like R2-Q5, but it's actually a buildable Disney droid at a theme park (not) near you!  The colors are as vibrant as the black plastic is not glossy.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,174: Commander Thorn (The Black Seres)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, August 12, 2015

It's new.  It's different.  But it's not exactly a premium figure.  Hasbro's 2015 Commander Thorn brings you a mishmash of parts that could be used to make Cody or Rex (or Doom!) and gives them a rich red paint job that, as long as you don't compare it to the animation model, is the best thing ever.  Once you start to hold them up side by side, it looks a little less great.   Read on!
