Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,193: Reistance Trooper (Space, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, September 14, 2015

Today in Figure of the Day, Reistance Trooper!  We don't know much about him yet, but we know he has a neat helmet and can sit in vehicles. Also, we assume it's a him.   It could just be a clever disguise.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,192: Poe Dameron (Pilot / Space, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, September 11, 2015

In his pilot outfit, this Poe Dameron figure includes what basically amounts to wings - he's not bad! The helmet isn't removable, but he has a holster for his blaster.  It's not a bad one.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,191: Rey (Snow, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 10, 2015

And now we look at Rey (last name withheld) because we can.  This is the single-carded figure that comes with the gun kickboard.   How did she turn out?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,190: Finn (Desert, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, September 9, 2015

While most figures are sold out in my neck of the woods, if you're lucky enough to stumble on new The Force Awakens action figures you're likely to find Finn.  He's one of the new major players in the movie, and like the rest we really don't know all that much about why he's there or what he's going to be doing.  It's a decent looking action figure, though.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,189: First Order Stormtrooper (Snow/Giant Rifle, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 8, 2015

The first First Order Stormtrooper has a big gun - other versions are coming, but the figures are generally the same.  This one comes with a giant Nerf-like gun, and I quite like it.   Will you?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,188: First Order TIE Fighter Pilot (Space, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, September 7, 2015

The First Order TIE Fighter Pilot looks a heck of a lot like the Imperial TIE Fighter Pilot - same basic colors, same basic layout.  It's less bulky, though, and other differences make this one an interesting take on the figure we've all crammed in vehicles since the first one in 1982.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,187: Luke Skywalker (Bespin / Jungle, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, September 6, 2015

They can't all be winners, but this figure is crucial if you want to assemble the Jungle cluster of "Combine Weapons."   The Luke Skywalker (Bespin / Jungle, The Force Awakens) is a perfectly nice figure, but a) you probably own it, and b) the backpack isn't enough to make the new, added backpack hole very interesting.  It may also amuse you to know that the backpack has more joints than the action figure.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,186: Captain Phasma (Buzzsaw, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, September 5, 2015

While same figure/different weapons are popping up, so far there's only one 3 3/4-inch Captain Phasma.   There's also a 6-inch one - but that's hard to find so far.  She's tall, she's silver, but - surprisingly - only her chest is painted. The limbs and head are molded in a silvery plastic.  Read on!

Disneyland Adds New $30 Star Wars Droid Factory Box Set, Debuts R0 Droid

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, September 4, 2015

Hasbro or not Hasbro?  We're still not 100% sure, but we do know that a new Droid Factory Boxed Set has popped up at theme parks and on eBay.  Reader Michael passed along the details - $29.95 gets you four droids (a real bargain!) including the first-ever R0-4LO and the first action figure of R5-X3 - this was previously sold as a Tomy RC droid and was slated for the axed Legacy Collection.

Also included are R2-Q2 with a different paint job - seriously, new panels and all - plus the first new R4-I9 since 2002.  The box boasts they're from the new movie, but I'm curious to see if this is true.

Six Second Toy Talk: Star Wars The Force Awakens Jungle/Space Kylo Ren Action Figure

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, September 4, 2015

Six Second Toy Talk: Star Wars The Force Awakens Jungle/Space Captain Phasma Action Figure

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, September 4, 2015


Hey, it's Captain Phasma! Watch this awesome review, or don't. Get your The Force Awakens stuff at Entertainment Earth.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,185: Kylo Ren (Jungle/Claw, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 3, 2015

We still haven't seen everything - but there are many Kylo Ren action figures.  Variant accessories may be a thing now, so keep your peepers peeled.  This one has a bear trap of sorts, but the figure itself has a great sculpt, good deco, and stands up just fine.  It's eight bucks, and you can order it at Entertainment Earth or elsewhere.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,184: R4-D23 (D23 Exclusive)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 3, 2015

Hey, it's R4-D23 (D23 Exclusive)!  And tomorrow is Force Friday, but you knew that.  This one was sold at the Disney show recently, and it's pretty nifty - you don't have one like this.  Read on!
