Today in Figure of the Day - before a brief hiatus so I can get some other things in order so we can hopefully all have a fun September - is R5-Series Astromech Droid Black with Silver and Orange. It's another Disney droid, and potentially available at a theme park "near" you right now. Is it worth it? Read on!
Hey, remember those waves of figures in Yoda-themed packaging that never made it out in the USA? Well, this Captain Rex is one of them - he has different deco than the 2012 release, plus added knee joints. Is it worth tracking down this mostly European release? Read on!
The R2-Series Astromech Droid Grey and White from Disney's droid part bins look a lot like R2-Q2, an exclusive from 2006. Since there may be more than one of it in the movie, is it different enough to be interesting - or the same enough to be the same? Read on!
Hey kids, it's Clone Commander Doom! Based on the 6th season episodes, this movie-style version of a Clone Wars figure is nice. Not perfect, but nice. Did you get yours yet? Maybe you should track one down - read on!
With or without her helmet, the new 3 3/4-inch Princess Leia Organa (Boushh) seems to share a digital sculpt with the 6-inch version. You'll see differences - this one has a dedicated detonator in her hand, and less face paint - but it's still pretty good. Read on!
It's not R4-E1, or really all that close. The R4-Series Astromech Droid White with Red and Silver reminds me of that droid, but all the patterns are different - check out the unique feet, torso, and the dome markings similar to the blue R4. Read on!
The R2-Series Astromech Droid Black and Silver looks a lot like R2-Q5, but it's actually a buildable Disney droid at a theme park (not) near you! The colors are as vibrant as the black plastic is not glossy. Read on!
It's new. It's different. But it's not exactly a premium figure. Hasbro's 2015 Commander Thorn brings you a mishmash of parts that could be used to make Cody or Rex (or Doom!) and gives them a rich red paint job that, as long as you don't compare it to the animation model, is the best thing ever. Once you start to hold them up side by side, it looks a little less great. Read on!
New for 2015 - today's Figure of the Day! Jon "Dutch" Vander was done over 10 years ago, but now he's back with a slightly different helmet deco and a couple of more joints on a different body. Read on!
A new deco design, the R7-Series Astromech Droid White and Blue is actually really striking. Some of the elements on his person do tend to evoke certain other elements in nature and consumer products, or perhaps he's just happy to see you. (Droids are a chipper lot.) Want to see more? Read on!
Let's look at the Disney park exclusive R2-Series Astromech Droid Silver and Purple (not R4-M6). It really is close to R4-M6, though, just made of build-a-droid parts with slightly less paint. Should you get this new-for-2015 figure? Read on!
Let's look at the new, cartoon-inspired, desert gear version of Clone Commander Wolffe. The good news - it's well-designed, with a great cloth "skirt" that is the best we've ever seen. The bad news - he is indeed a little short for a Clone Trooper. Read on!
Since the line reboot, Jawas as a two-pack have been an important part of the line. Start an army in every pack, or collect them all and pack out the Sandcrawler you probably skipped in 2004. Ah well - so how are these new, non-light-piped versions? Read on!
This new Han Solo from what may be one of the last waves (that we know of) for the 3 3/4-inch The Black Series is here! He's cool - as in frozen - and loaded with articulation. Despite this he can't quite perfectly use his handcuffs, but the carbonite block is new and it's quite nice. Read on!
We looked at a Black Series Stormtrooper, but not this Black Series Stormtrooper! There was another one of those trademark running changes, you see. This one? New helmet. It's still basically the same construction as the Sandtrooper you got with a Dewback a few years ago, and if you didn't, shame on you. It's pretty good - it comes on the newer TIE Pilot blue cardback if you want one. Read on!
