Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,258: Darth Vader (The Force Awakens Value 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 10, 2016

Another 6-inch budget figure!  Darth Vader is pretty much required to exist in any figure format, so the enlarged toy with reduced articulation would be a given.  He's not taller than Han or his casemates, but he is a lot more fun to play with than a cake topper.  Unlike the others, his lightsaber is completely removable from his hand - but should you go on a toy run to try to find this one?   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,257: Han Solo (The Force Awakens Value 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, March 9, 2016

Continuing the value range of 6-inch Hasbro figures at Family Dollar, let's look at Han Solo.   His blaster is molded to his hand, and the texture on his pants is pretty intense.   The head deco is similar to the vintage Kenner figures of old, and he looks a lot like Hasbro's other recent offerings of Harrison Ford from the original movie.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,256: Kanan Jarrus (The Force Awakens Value 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 8, 2016

And here we go again!  This Kanan Jarrus is a 6-inch action figure with 4 points of articulation that you can't really easily find online.   I'm only finding them at Family Dollar stores - it's a "value" item.   Should you get one?  Is a $6.75 6-inch figure worth your while?  Read on!

Hasbro Delivers New Star Wars 6-Inch Scale Figures to Family Dollar

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, February 27, 2016

If you're a living, breathing fan of Star Wars it's a safe bet that you're always looking for something new.  Well, I've found it.   We saw images of a Finn last year, which I have yet to see here in the USA, but I have seen new 6-inch action figures of Kanan Jarrus, Luke Skywalker, and Darth Vader at Family Dollar.   Presumably these are showing up elsewhere, too.

The USA Today Reveals New Star Wars Rebels Leia Action Figure

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, January 20, 2016

America's newspaper The USA Today posted this preview of the new 2016 Princess Leia Figure as based on Star Wars Rebels which, as should come as no surprise, is based on early concept art from the original movie.  It is due this Fall, and I can't wait to buy one!  Meanwhile, series stars Sabine and Hera remain elusive.

Also, there is no Lando Calrissian toy based on his appearances (voiced by Billy Dee Williams) on Star Wars Rebels.

Disney World Adds 4 New Star Wars Droid Factory Figure Domes

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, December 30, 2015

Reader Frank chimed in to let us know/warn us that four more droids were added to the action figure part bins at Disney World in Florida.  No new bodies are available yet - but these four domes are.  Here's what he had to say:

"I am an avid fan and love my astromechs! I stopped out at WDW Hollywood Studios today and happened to browse by the Droid Factory counter at Tattooine Traders. Not expecting to see anything, just more of the mismatched 2015 domes series when I did see exactly that!! More mismatched domes and some that I had not seen before. I have not seen reports of these new additions. I found 4 new domes, but nothing new in the legs or bodies from before. Maybe they are on their way? Or maybe 4 domes is all there is?? Not sure when these hit the retail floor, but it looks like there are new parts coming for 2016. The 4 different domes are pretty evenly distributed out there, no shortage that I could tell. Just wish they had some matching parts to make coherent looking droids. Most interesting is the new black R4.5 [?] dome. If I learn more here I’ll send it in."

Walmart Has 31-Inch Kylo Ren - $15

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, December 19, 2015

Less action figures than massive display pieces, Jakks Pacific's 31-inch action figures are - on occasion - also pretty cheap. has Kylo Ren down to $15, a massive price cut for such a big figure.  Many of the other large figures are $5-$20 off, so you might want to take a look if there's anything you want and also if your local stores let you do that in-store pickup for online orders.  (I tried it earlier this year and, surprisingly, it was much smoother than similar things at Target and Kmart have been in the past.)

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,255: Constable Zuvio (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, December 9, 2015

Hey, it's Constable Zuvio!  He has a magnificent paint job on his armor, and we know absolutely nothing about him in the movie yet.  Well.  With that, I'm taking a FOTD break because I actually would like to see the movie before commenting any more on these - so read on, for what it's worth.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,254: Captain Phasma (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 8, 2015

Arguably the figure of the season, the 6-inch Captain Phasma is the one your pals want and can't find - I haven't seen her in stores personally yet, but her wave mates?  You'll see those.  She's pretty much exactly as good as you might expect from this line, so read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,253: Sandtrooper Sergeant (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, December 7, 2015

Check out the Sandtrooper Sergeant!  It's one of the exclusive figures in Entertainment Earth's Imperial Forces 6-inch action figure set.   This one has a different dirt pattern and a white pauldron - what more do you need?  Well, it's also got the blasters from the other releases - be sure to get this one!  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,252: R2-Q5 (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, December 4, 2015

He's back, and slightly bigger than ever (from Hasbro)!  R2-Q5 has opening panels with painted arms and a swell finish - but none of the scopes that came with R2-D2 two years ago.   Is it cool?  Well, I think so, but I'm biased.  It's in stock for ordering right now, and you can read on to see if you should care!
