Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,903

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, September 28, 2012

It's Fixer, a Republic Commando!  This version has knees.  The previous version didn't.  Does this mean we're now dealing with a superior being?  Read on!

If you didn't spend all day counting the seconds to the Banimon figure launch, perhaps you will want to read about the late 2010 Obi-Wan Kenobi.  Season 3. Thin. Awesome?

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,901

Behold, the most recent individually-carded incarnation of Luke Skywalker in the farmboy outfit!  We expect a new one in about 1-2 years, but how is this one?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,900

#1,900! How did we make it this far?  Why did we make it this far?  It's time to look at a swell black-and-silver Mygeeto Super Battle Droid which, it seems, a lot of us missed.  Is it cool? Of course! Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,899

It's another C-3PO, although one oddly based on the 4-LOM body!  It's pretty good.  You can swap heads, and the deco is quite nice.  If you missed the 2010 release, you'll probably be sorry.  Read on!

This Passel Argente redeco is orange, and it sports a lightsaber slash on his chest.  That's really about all there is to it.  Should you get one?  Eh.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,897

The Droid Factory Star Tours-exclusive Red R5-Series Astromech Droid isn't R5-D4, but it's kind of close!  The unique dome has slightly different deco, plus it lacks the antenna of the build-a-droid mold seen at retail.  Is it worth buying, or should you ask for a red robot refund?

This is a good one.  If you're one of the few readers who still believe it's important for an action figure to be a good toy, this Anakin Skywalker is one of the better ones.  Not only does he have the first entirely-new sculpt of Jake Lloyd as Anakin in over a decade, but he has a wacky fun toy backpack that feels like it was ripped right out of the 1990s... when the first Anakin came with a backpack which did absolutely nothing.

Hey kids, it's Flitchee!  This is one of thse figures who didn't really have a name until the toy came to pass.  He looks different than the figure on the box, too!  Want to know more?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,894

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, September 17, 2012

The Clone Trooper Lieutenant is starting to finally trickle into stores, just in time for you to go "Didn't I get this in San Diego?" (Yes.)  It's still quite good, and as a repaint it's OK.  If yours has eyebrows, anyway.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,893

Arguably one of the more interesting TIE Fighter pilot names, Mauler Mithel came from, if my abacus is truthful, Decipher's customizable card game.  The pilot is notable with his rubbed helmet symbol and... pilot-ness.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,892

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 13, 2012

This Gasgano from 2012 lacks the Pit Droid from 1999, but has a flag and slightly different deco.  So you'll probably begrudgingly buy this one, if at all.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,891

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, September 12, 2012

Who loves a good argument?  The Nightsister which just showed up at Target is sold with animated versions of Darth Maul and Savage Opress, but is sculpted to match a prequel concept for a proto-Darth Maul Sith Witch character.  She's not very cartoony, but if anything, feels like a stealth "concept" figure rather than a Mother Talzin substitute.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,890

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 11, 2012

The Darth Sidious that is made the least tends to sell best, and the 2012 version ain't bad. It has a nice head sculpt popped on a 2005 body, but the sculpt of the 1999 version is pretty charming still.  Is this a worthy upgrade?  Read on!

This is a good one.  The Yellow R6-Series Astromech Droid was probably my favorite from the ones I was able to get in Orlando last month, because it looks just familiar and just different enough to be awesome.  It's also in some really gonzo color.  Is it worth tracking down?
