Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,576: R2-D2 (Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, April 11, 2019

If you have a Force Link 2.0 band, you'll love the beeps on the R2-D2 (Solo: A Star Wars Story line look).  It's a redeco of an existing mold, and the flames are super colorful.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,575: C-3PO (Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 9, 2019

This C-3PO (Solo: A Star Wars Story line look) has gorgeous paint work - you can see the oil dripping out of his pores.   With 5 points of articulation it's some of Hasbro's best paintwork, and it's on the kid's line.  It's also starting to show up in the USA finally so get yours if you can.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,574: Stormtrooper (Resistance line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, April 4, 2019

It's a little different!  With a mighty scowl, Stormtrooper (Resistance line look)  has a blaster and no hip slot for a blaster.   It's black and white and not red all over, and one of few figures in the fairly small Resistance series.  It's neat, but should you get it if you have a bunch of First Order Movie Stormtroopers?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,573: Torra Doza (Resistance line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 2, 2019

Two heads are better than one!  Torra Doza has that classic Gulf coloring with two heads!  There's a second one inside the helmet.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,572: Commander Pyre (Resistance line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 28, 2019

It's good as gold! The Commander Pyre (Resistance line look) seems to be selling in my local stores - along with the other figures! They're neat, and it's not like we get a Stormtrooper with a name every year.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,571: Major Vonreg (Resistance line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 26, 2019

Sort of a futuristic throwback, Major Vonreg (Resistance line look) is a skinny, brightly-colored figure that looks like he might have been at home in the 1980s Droids line - so you know I love it.  But will you?   Yes.  It's red, it's a pilot, and it's probably the only figure we'll see of this guy.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,570: Stormtrooper (Mimban, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 21, 2019

If you can find it, now that it's finally hitting shelves at Walmarts, this Stormtrooper (Mimban, The Vintage Collection) is fantastic.  Articulation is above par, it has two blasters, there's a cloth cape, and it's one of the best things going right now.  Again - provided you can find it.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,569: General Grievous (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 19, 2019

This General Grievous (The Black Series 6-Inch) is shipping now, and it's pretty fancy.  Hasbro left off the symbol on his cape, but did add pockets to store lightsabers in the lining.   It looks good, but lacks some of the articulation of the admittedly not-so-elegant 3 3/4-inch The Vintage Collection release from a few years ago.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,568: Jarek Yaeger (Resistance line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 14, 2019

You probably should go run out and buy this Jarek Yaeger (Resistance line look)  if you see it.  It's a good human figure, with a good droid and a swappable head helmet accessory.  I don't assume there will be many more waves of Resistance, so go ahead and get the set unless you hate 1980s-style articulation that really works.  Read on!

New Glyos Tribute Figure - Walruden!

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 7, 2019

It's up! A new figure based on the Robo-Force mold is just one of several new releases from Onell Design, but the one you care about is Walruden.  It's available now but the final photography is being withheld - you'll see it first when it arrives, and it'll probably be colored just like Walrus Man.  Click here to see what's available.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,566: Kaz Xiono (Resistance line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 7, 2019

Starring in Resistance is Kaz Xiono (Resistance line look)!  You're probably not watching the show, but Hasbro did a good job with the figure.  It has a nice silhouette, stands and sits well, and feels like a classic Kenner action figure (made in 2019.)  The face paint is really good too - read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,565: Imperial Patrol Trooper (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 5, 2019

I really like the Imperial Patrol Trooper (The Black Series 6-Inch).  You can see elements of other troopers in here, like shins from various Rogue One troopers, a helmet that looks like a mutant Stormtrooper, and body armor that's vaguely recalling the 1983 Biker Scouts.  Read on!

New Star Wars-Themed Glyos Figure This Week?

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, March 3, 2019

3700 I'm writing that as a question, but the answer is probably "yes."  Onell Design have been dropping about 1 Kenner-colored tribute figure every month, and we've been looking at the likes of Hammerden, Greeden, and Pheytooth as they come up.  At 9:30 PM EST this Thursday, Onell Design will be releasing new figures. But we don't know which ones yet, because that's a big part of the fun.

(Update 2/5/2019: a comment in that posting from Onell Design confirms the identity of the figure in question. And he doesn't like you.)

3-D Print Your Own Star Wars Droids

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, March 3, 2019

3699 My pal Phil pointed me to a Thingiverse page by Tony "Isotelus" Kramer with dozens of 3-D printable droids and it's pretty impressive.  While Hasbro and Lucasfilm focus mostly on the main characters, fan-made creations may be more and more common as these made-on-demand figures look pretty spiffy.  If you have a 3-D printer (and I don't) you may wish to give these a try.
