The year's not over yet!  If you're still sober and not arguing over ridiculousness on Twitter, read the last Figure of the Day for 2010, the Storm Commando!  It's a lot like the Scout Trooper, but there's a new helmet and some other tweaks. Read on!

Galactic Hunter: Best of 2010 and Year In Review

By Mike — Friday, December 31, 2010

2010 was a landmark year celebrating the 30th Anniversary of what many consider to be the best Star Wars film made, The Empire Strikes Back. For Hasbro action figure collectors, it presented a mixed bag of peaks and valleys as the year progressed. Toy Fair got things started with this year's BMF, the AT-AT, and the announcement of the new Vintage Collection and its fantastic retro style Kenner packaging.

While you're at Wal-Mart looking for Jabba, you might see Matchstick in some of their exclusive DVD figure 2-packs.  It's a good figure with a distinctive design, so it wouldn't kill you to pick him up to pilot your vehicles.  Or would it?  (It wouldn't.)  Read on!

Oh, I do love the Jawa action figures.  This guy is part of a 2-pack of great cartoon-style figures, one of too few aliens to appear in the TV-focused action figure line.  And it's still cheap, too!  Is it worth grabbing?  Read on!

Image Bank: SL20 Battle Droids

By Mike — Monday, December 27, 2010

Originally released last year for Target's Geonosis Arena sets, these red Battle Droids, one being a commander, are prime for the army building. Look out for a correction to a smaller size for the eyes by Hasbro for better accuracy.

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, December 27, 2010

As we wrap up 2010, let's look at one of the first figures from 2000-- it's the very first R2-B1!  Made with a chrome dome and only two legs, this figure wasn't exactly a step forward but it sure was colorful.  Is it worth snagging?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,443

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, December 24, 2010

Oh, what a difference ten years makes.  There was a time where Han Solo (Stormtrooper Disguise) was an unbelievably big deal-- first as a mail-in, than as this store exclusive.  Today?  Worthless.   It's still a nice figure though-- read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,442

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 23, 2010

Is this Darth Maul the best so far?  Maybe!  It's certainly the best at sitting, and it's easily the best toy one so far.  There's still room for improvement, but this 1999 release is so good, Hasbro still has it in circulation today.  Read on!
