Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,549: Rio Durant (Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, January 8, 2019

Rio Durant is a gem - this 3 3/4-inch figure is the kind of thing you wish Hasbro did more often.  This short space monkey has four arms, a blaster, and a pretty good-for-a-soundalike Force Link 2.0 chip.  Get one if you can find one. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,548: Dengar (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, January 3, 2019

Another of last year's highlights, the Dengar (The Black Series 6-Inch) figure is awesome!  You should have ran out to get one, or ordered online, because Dengar is great.  He has a removable backpack, a cool blaster, and amazing detail with a separate rubbery headwrap on his head.  Who knew Dengar could be so good?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,547: Han Solo (Mimban, Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, January 1, 2019

This Han Solo (Mimban) is in a gift set, or sold individually - you should be able to get one rather easily.  It has a removable bask, moving goggles, a blaster, and a cape.  It's a Mudtrooper of the finest order, so I would get one if I were you.  Heck, I got two.  Read on!

Star Wars Review: Lando Calrissian (Skiff Guard, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 27, 2018

We looked at one of the worst figures of the year the other week, so now let's look at one of Hasbro's very best.  The Lando Calrissian (Skiff Guard, The Black Series 6-Inch) brings one of my favorite costumes on one of my favorite characters, and on top of that they did a phenomenal job. The face sculpting is good, but the paint! Oh!  They did a nice job giving him a feel that's a lot closer to Billy Dee Williams than ever before.  With the Donald Glover version also turning out well, and the buzz that we'll see Lando return again next year, it's a good season for Lando merch.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,545: R4-H18 (Droid Factory Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 25, 2018

The Disney takeover has resulted in more Hasbro-compatible toys at theme parks, like this year's ice sculpture-inspired Christmas robot R4-H18 (Droid Factory Line Look).   It's a typical R4 unit cast in a clear white plastic, frosty with silver highlights and decorated with festive and removable drinks.  It can't make use of the third leg and the drink tray at the same time, but that's how these things go.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,544: Jawa (Droid Factory Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 20, 2018

Is this the worst action figure of 2018? Yes. The Disney Sandcrawler pack-in Jawa (Droid Factory Line Look) is clearly cobbled together from Hasbro parts someone cast and didn't resculpt over the joints.  It's crude, and if you told me it was a bootleg I'd believe you.  At least the droid is OK and the Sandcrawler is nice. Read on!

Review: Onell Design Glyos Pheytooth

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, December 19, 2018

Onell Design has new Glyos-compatible figures every month or so, and the last release had Pheytooth - a Snaggletooth-inspired figure.   I looked at it over at 16bit.com, and figured I may as well share it here.  Previous figures include nods to troopers, Greedo, and even Vlix - so I like these a lot.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,543: Gonk Droid (Droid Factory Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 18, 2018

A Sandcrawler pack-in at Disney theme parks, the Gonk Droid (Droid Factory Line Look) has a pop-off chassis and jointed legs. It's very similar to the Hasbro one from a few years ago, down to sculpted joints that worked on Hasbro's but are ornamental here.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,542: Kylo Ren (Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 13, 2018

The Force Link 2.0 Kylo Ren is a lot like the one from the first Force Link band last year - but with a different symbol on his boot, and a different sound chip.   You may not need more Kylo Ren figures, but you also might need them all - and this Solo: A Star Wars Story release does meet the "just different enough to make you mad" quota.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,541: L3-37 (Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 11, 2018

You might have seen this L3-37 (Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)  around, but maybe not.  It's good!  A heavily modified R3 droid has arms and legs, but you'll ese parts from an old Astromech chassis placed strategically on her body.  It works.  Oh, it works.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,540: Range Trooper (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 6, 2018

You know you want the Range Trooper (The Vintage Collection).  But can you find it?  It has a white blaster - the Force Link 2.0 version has black - and tons of articulation.  You'll want to get a few of each to fill out your playsets and dioramas.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,539: Han Solo (Vandor-1, Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 4, 2018

This Han Solo (Vandor-1) comes form a boxed set meant as a tie-in release to the home video for Solo: A Star Wars Story but has been in pretty short supply at brick and mortar.  (Order online!)  It's a nicely-textured figure with goggles, a holster, some snow, and nifty boots.   You'll want this one.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,538: Han Solo (Brown Jacket, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 29, 2018

For years we've had more than Obi-Wan Kenobi, and now we've got more than one Han Solo.  Based on the 2018 Alden model, this 3 3/4-inch action figure is loaded with articulation and may be at a store near you.  We've been getting more new cases of wave 1 in my neck of the woods.  Read on!
