Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,118: Sabine Wren (Star Wars Rebels Mission Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, March 9, 2015

And we're back! Few columns get as many letters and as few reads as Figure of the Day, and it's back for a while with a look at the figures hitting hard now.  Like Sabine Wren from Star Wars Rebels here - she's got two guns, her helmet doesn't come off, and for budget reasons her paint job isn't quite what you see on TV.  But she's still pretty neat!

USA Today Reveals Star Wars Rebels Darth Vader and [Redacted]

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 3, 2015

Be warned, if you haven't seen last night's episode of Star Wars Rebels then this story on USA Today may ruin it for you.  Darth Vader is well known, so I can post this headline: Darth Vader's back in 'Star Wars Rebels'.  You knew that.  And now we know Hasbro is doing a figure for it, which is fantastic news - but there's another figure coming with him, and that's what you may not yet want to know.

Target Getting Sabine/Stormtrooper, Wullfwarro Mission Series

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, January 26, 2015

Good news, everyone! New stuff is starting to hit - I personally saw a Target in Phoenix, AZ have a couple of Wullfwarro/Wookiee Warrior and Sabine Wren/Stormtrooper Star Wars Mission Series 2-packs at $9.99 a pop this evening before dinner.  (I didn't see any of the other new ones.)  If you're in the market for these, either order online at your favorite store or gas up the car!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,117: Clone Trooper Sergeant (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, December 31, 2014

Get some green! The new 6-inch Clone Trooper Sergeant!  Figure of the Day is here to show you Hasbro's second-ever articulated figure with the brownish/olive rank markings. Previous figures were mostly 3 3/4-inch, and mostly a brighter green.

You get a rifle, a blaster pistol, and a ton of paint on the previously all-white Clone Trooper mold. Basically, short of battle damage, this figure gives you everything you could hope for. Well, maybe you could hope for an alternate unhelmeted head but I think it's pretty great as it is.

Anyway, read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,116: TIE Pilot (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 30, 2014

It's a tie! Or more specifically, it's a 6-inch TIE Pilot!  Figure of the Day is here to show you the upsized take on everybody's favorite flying menace, which is unsurprisingly pretty good!

You get a holster, a blaster, and a pretty great sculpt here for twenty bucks. The paint job is good, there are rocker ankles, and unlike most of the past decade's worth of 3 3/4-inch TIE Fighter pilots, this one is an all-new sculpt for a change. If that doesn't put a smile on your face, what will?

Anyway, read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,106: Luke Skywalker (Hoth - The Black Series 2014)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 18, 2014

If you got the vintage figure from a couple years back, the Luke Skywalker (Hoth - The Black Series 2014) action figure offers a new head and a little less paint. He lost a couple of really cool tampos, but he has a noggin that's more like what Kenner made before the change to Hasbro, with a scarf hanging off the side.  This is probably your go-to "vintage 1982 upgrade" until Hasbro decides to start doing intentionally wrong paintjobs - so read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,113: Chopper C1-10P (Star Wars Rebels Saga Legends)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, November 14, 2014

Hey kids, it's Chopper!  Also known as C1-10P, I think, this litle guys is a smaller droid than most - but still pretty great.  With only 3 joints, the colorful Star Wars Rebels figure may be at a store near you right now - they're shipping, but hard to come by.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,112: Agent Kallus (Star Wars Rebels Saga Legends)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 13, 2014

He's one of the ISB's finest! Agent Kallus chases down Jedi and other undesirables for the Emperor, and boy howdy does he love his job.  He's a pretty well-trained agent too, with a unique costume that mixes and matches elements from other familiar faces.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,111: Garazeb "Zeb" Orrelios (Star Wars Rebels Mission Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, November 12, 2014

Today in Figure of the Day: Garazeb "Zeb" Orrelios!  He's hitting stores now, or you could've ordered one at our fine sponsors.   He has 5 joints and is a lot taller than most figures in the line - unfortunately he's also too wide to fit in the new vehicles, save for the Inquisitor's TIE Fighter.   Check him out - read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,110: The Inquisitor (Star Wars Rebels Saga Legends)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 11, 2014

The Inquisitor is hitting shelves now and unlike most characters, that appears to be his name for the time being. The figure is pretty nifty and sports the lightsaber death disc as seen on the TV show.  Did you get yours yet? You should get one. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,109: R2-D2 (Star Wars Rebels Mission Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, November 7, 2014

Do you need the Rebels version of R2-D2?  No.  It's a brand-new sculpt and actually looks a lot like the movie version, but it's so gosh darned close that you wouldn't miss it if you missed it.   Click here to read on and see more, including comparisons with the recent movie Mission Series version.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,108: Stormtrooper (Star Wars Rebels Mission Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 6, 2014

Today in Figure of the Day: Star Wars Rebels Stormtrooper! It's a 5-jointed, exaggerated, 3 3/4-inch action figure with a gun.  It's pretty neat - I saw this wave at Target over lunch today, so I can say they're making the rounds right now, which I didn't see prior to writing and posting all these reviews.  That's what I get. Anyway, read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,107: C-3PO (Star Wars Rebels Mission Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, November 5, 2014

Here's another neat one - C-3PO from Star Wars Rebels is today's Figure of the Day!  It hits most of the buttons for being a good toy (it can sit!), with a little more attention needed on the face paint.  I still like it - will you?  Read on!
