Today in Figure of the Day: Luke Skywalker! Loosely inspired by the Sandstorm Scene and whatever was in the water at Kenner in the late 1980s, this Armor Up version of the Jedi Knight features the same sculpt and lightsaber from last year, but with wacky wrappings, belts, and a backpack for reasons nobody will ever truly understand. Is it worth the $13? Of course not - but it's weird and fun anyway, so read on!
Reader Matt wrote in to let us know that Disneystore.com is now selling the theme park exclusive Droid Factory Box Set - Star Wars: The Force Awakens for a ridiculously good $29.95. The set has 4 3 3/4-inch scale droids including some you haven't seen as toys before - considering the going rate of a droid is usually $10-$13, that ain't bad.
What's more, there's also this 25% off $75 coupon that expires today. If you need more than one set - or shirts - this is quite the deal.
UPDATE #2: Amazon pulled new orders down again. Check back for more.

Meet Goss Toowers - the Resistance's famous mechanic. Dig him up and shake his hand, and then wonder just what role he plays in the movie. He's got awesome metallic gloves and a spiffy helmet, but is he a character or is he just scenery? We'll find out soon, but until then we can look at the figure and squint. Read on!
We got a new Astromech with BB-8, so let's enjoy a new protocol droid with PZ-4CO! She's blue, she has a long neck, and she looks and feels more toy-like than a lot of other recent figures. For this reason, why wouldn't you want to buy one? Read on!
Hasbro's new Battle Action Millennium Falcon is the best toy for the holiday season according to the Telegraph. It may not be a close to scale B.M.F., but features plenty of electronic sounds and lights, not to mention a Nerf firing canon, that should be just the right kind of play magic that would attract the parental demographic looking for gift giving ideas for their The Force Awakens mesmerized kids.
Meet General Hux! It's a new character that totally isn't Denis Leary cosplaying as Toht from Raiders. He's got a long coat, a short gun, and a hat - what more could you ask for? If it was First Order logos on his sleeves, you'd get that too. Anyway, it's neat - read on!
Back in September we got Kylo Ren. And now we got another one, with new wacky extra weapons - they're basically wings with Weequay pikes at the end of them. Is it worth re-buying? Does it matter if you're a completist? Read on!
Toys R Us is offering a deal from now through November 21! "20% off ALL Star Wars 3.75" figures & vehicles." What they don't tell you is that some other items are on sale, and the asterisk is that Black Series doesn't count. My advice to you - scan every item you see, just in case what you want is on aisle.
An Entertainment Earth exclusive, the desert flavor of the Stormtrooper Officer comes with a red pauldron and a totally different paint job on his Assault Walker. It's a little whiter than the jungle trooper, and looks like it should fit right in on a Jakku shelf. It's also shipping right now. Read on!
Walk the plank! Or don't. This is Sarco Plank, a new alien menace who has popped up in at least one of the books so far. He's due to be in The Force Awakens and if I were a betting man, I'd assume in a very limited role. Want to see more? Read on!
In 2008, she wasn't well received. Today Ahsoka Tano and her appearances on Star Wars Rebels are a huge, huge deal. This figure comes packaged with Darth Vader and it's a fast seller - buy it if you see it (and enjoy the show)! Read on!
For The Force Awakens, Hasbro outfitted R2-D2 with a completely new harness that features energy blasters. For those of us who have been waiting 19 years for the cryptotoyological toy to show up, here's one!
