Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,665: First Order Elite Snowtrooper (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, February 18, 2020

New?  A lot of the late 2019 exclusives were deco changes or accessory changes, and this First Order Elite Snowtrooper (The Black Series 6-Inch)  was a bit of both. Available individually or in a mystery box crate, this clearanced-out Target exclusive took a 2015 First Order Snowtrooper and added a cloak. And some paint.  I wasn't excited about it at full price, but the gift set's hat, pin, and comic made a nice gift set when it was marked down. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,664: Babu Frik (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, February 13, 2020

The one, the only, the Babu Frik (The Black Series 6-Inch) is who we're looking at today.  I don't assume they can or will make a 3 3/4-inch scale one, so this larger-scale (but tiny) figure is the best bet you've got right now.  Is it worth it? Will you lose it in the couch? Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,663: Rey (& D-O, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, February 11, 2020

Today: Rey (& D-O, The Black Series 6-Inch). It's a fantastic figure with exceptional articulation and the best Daisy Ridley likeness yet, plus a small droid sidekick - and she's not too hard to find.  Read on!

Star Wars Review: D-O (& Rey, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, February 6, 2020

D-O (& Rey, The Black Series 6-Inch) is technically an accessory, but less technically, he's really hard to get to stand up properly compared to other versions of the figure.   He's a got a little dirt, though, and articulated hair antenna things on the back. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,661: C-3PO (& Babu Frik, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, February 4, 2020

This 6-inch C-3PO includes Babu Frik... and Chewbacca's signature gear.   Promising chaos and action, the figure was ultimately more interesting than its scenes in The Rise of Skywalker, but hey, we've always got our imaginations.  The Target exclusive is most likely long gone at your local stores, but if you can find it I would recommend it.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,660: Chewbacca (& C-3PO, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, January 30, 2020

Check out Chewbacca (& C-3PO, The Black Series 6-Inch)! It's a lot more expenisve than buying individual Chewbacca and C-3PO figures, but there are enough changes that may make it worth your while to get this set. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,659: Death Star Gunner (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, January 28, 2020

This super-articulated Death Star Gunner (The Vintage Collection) is based on Rogue One!  It has a blaster and some of the best articulation ever, it's a pity there's no Death Star to put the figures in these days.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,658: Klatooinian Raider (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, January 23, 2020

Hey, it's a Klatooinian Raider (The Vintage Collection)!  It's a new head on an old Weequay body, with a new hat and vest. Clever!  It's the pack-in with the really cool AT-ST Raider, an expensive - but absolutely worth it on sale - exclusive at Best Buy.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,657: First Order Stormtrooper (2019 TLJ, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, January 21, 2020

The 2019 First Order Stormtrooper (2019 TLJ, The Black Series 6-Inch)  looks a lot like figures from 2015 and 2018.  It also shares many parts with them, but this one was also available in a white box if that's your jam.  Do you need more?  Is it a great excuse to build an army while only buying one of everything?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,656: Heavy Infantry Mandalorian (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, January 18, 2020

We had a brief server outage, which is why we're late posting about this Heavy Infantry Mandalorian (The Black Series 6-Inch)  - which was on the blog as scheduled, so hooray tenacity.  It's a great figure and Best Buy seems to be out for now.  Will you have another crack at it in the future?  Well, I hope so, it's superb. I don't care if you don't like the show, this figure is so cool you old crusty people are going to want one.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,656: Cara Dune (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, January 14, 2020

It's Cara Dune (The Black Series 6-Inch)!  If you watched The Mandalorian, you probably want this figure. It's a good one - there's a knife, and the hole in the boot to store it in is well-hidden and nicely integrated.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,654: Offworld Jawa (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, January 9, 2020

The Egg! Is not included with the Offworld Jawa (The Black Series 6-Inch) but it's still a decent figure.  Its popularity will no doubt increase over time as people actually watch The Mandalorian, so go ahead and get one (or six) now before the rest of the world catches on.  Read on!

Target Restocking The Mandalorian Carbonized Graphite Edition

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, January 8, 2020

If you missed it - like I did - Hasbro did another run of the Star Wars The Black Series Carbonized Collection The Mandalorian Toy Figure (Target Exclusive) for US Target stores.   It's $24.99, and I would go as far as to say it looks good enough to  be worth the five bucks.   I saw a few out and about today, so check your local stores - and don't trust the in-store inventory checkers online, go look.  My store said they had none online, and sure enough, there it was.  Good hunting!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,653: Finn (Galaxy of Adventures 5-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, January 7, 2020

Oddly this Finn (Galaxy of Adventures 5-Inch) seems to have already dried up around these parts - as the only Hasbro Finn from The Rise of Skywalker, at least to date, you might want to get one if you stumble on one.  The 5-inch line has been reported as being as low as $3-$5 at various Kroger-owned grocery stores and Walmarts, and they're well worth that price.  Particularly Finn, as it's a nicely-sculpted figure with great articulation and no problems standing.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,652: MSE Droid (The First Order, Galaxy's Edge, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, January 2, 2020

The not-so-new MSE Droid (The First Order, Galaxy's Edge, The Black Series 6-Inch) is amazingly well-decorated, with astonishingly good wear-and-tear paint right on the body.  It has wheels, it's small, and you can get it at Galaxy's Edge in a big expensive pack with another Kylo Ren.  Read on!
