Figure of the Day

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,427: Bistan (Rogue One Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, November 20, 2017

Better late than never - and Bistan was pretty close to "never."   I'm really happy Bistan got out as a special thing, as everybody deserves a cool new alien space monkey action figure with a new Stormtrooper.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,425: BB-8 (Droid Factory Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, November 13, 2017

One good droid deserves another - the BB-8 (Droid Factory Line Look) is a newish mold!   He's bigger than Hasbro's, but the deco is different - not better, not worse.  Neither seems truly superior, but this one is bigger and a little bit more adorable thanks to the eye seeming to have more life in it.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,424: 2BB-2 (Droid Factory Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, November 8, 2017

Not from Hasbro!  Disney's 2BB-2 (Droid Factory Line Look) is pretty slick and, for some reason, have the lettering backward.  Go figure.  It's a neat robot that looks kind of like a globe of Earth.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,423: Darth Vader (The Black Series, 6-Inch, Centerpiece)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, November 6, 2017

You may have seen big displays of these in September, and now they seem to have dried up.  But why?  The Darth Vader (The Black Series, 6-Inch, Centerpiece) lights up and has places to put Stormtroopers while the Sith Lord tears down this wall.  It lights up, too.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,422: Kylo Ren (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, November 1, 2017

The new Kylo Ren is a 3 3/4-inch figure available in multiple configurations - this one is sold carded, with a cape, and has a painted scar on his face.  It's probably the best of these, unless he's also going to come out with the "space bandage" we saw in the movie trailer later.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,420: Yoda (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, October 25, 2017

What's kind of fascinating in the Disney era is that most figures look  better than ever.   Great sculpting and top-notch detail are the norm with very few exceptions, and this Yoda from the CG prequel design is possibly the very best one we've ever seen on that design.  The eyes have a subtle outline, the shoulders are able to move outward, plus he has both a cane and a lightsaber.  It seems like this is the figure most likely to sell out too - so get one if you see it. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,419: Captain Phasma (6-Inch Value Figure, The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, October 23, 2017

While C-3PO would fill in on your The Black Series shelves nicely, the value version of Captain Phasma might not.  She's about a head shorter, but as a standalone figure she's pretty cool for the asking price.   Phasma has a cape and a blaster, based on her The Force Awakens look - so no new spear here.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,418: C-3PO (6-Inch Value Figure, The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, October 18, 2017

If you like the cheap 6-inch figures, this C-3PO is one of the best.  It fits right in with your The Black Series figures, and its cheap, and hte paint is good.   It can't sit, but it's not like all of the joints of The Black Series ones added a ton to the overall experience.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,417: Resistance Tech Rose (The Black Series, The Last Jedi)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, October 16, 2017

Check out Walmart's exclusive 3 3/4-inch Resistance Tech Rose (The Black Series, The Last Jedi).  I haven't seen them in a store for about a month, but it's a nifty take on a character we'll get to meet in December.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,416: Luke Skywalker (Jedi Master, The Black Series, The Last Jedi)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, October 11, 2017

If you were lucky, you also found Luke Skywalker (Jedi Master, The Black Series) 3 3/4-inch figure during the Force Friday II weekend memorial toy launch and BBQ at a Walmart near you... and it probably didn't ring up, either.   Well, they're in circulation and it's a pretty good figure - it has articulation and a cloth cloak, while the cheaper, more findable one has less articulation and a really good plastic cloak.  Which should you buy?  Both, but read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,415: Rey (2-Pack, The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, October 9, 2017

Newish from The Last Jedi, this Rey (2-Pack) figure is a little different than the single one - the sculpt is a little different, the legs have a different range of motion, and the faces are a little different.  Also she has a Millennium Falcon-inspired backpack cannon, so go ahead and get both.  This one is made in Vietnam, the single one is from China.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,414: Elite Praetorian Guard (2-Pack, The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, October 4, 2017

Take a look at the Elite Praetorian Guard (2-Pack, The Last Jedi Line Look) with its bonnet.  Ofsnoke has a cool bladed weapon and a faceless mask, and is one of (so far) three different 3 3/4-inch guards on the market.   Should you get it?  Of course.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,413: Obi-Wan Kenobi (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, October 2, 2017

I was surprised to find Yoda and Obi-Wan Kenobi (The Last Jedi Line Look) over Force Friday weekend.  This is a spectacular figure for the asking price - not only does it talk, but the design is really good.   He can't sit in a Landspeeder, but there are jointed legs, a fantastic painted beard, one of the best Alex Guinness faces yet rendered in plastic, and oh yes - it's one of the few new 3 3/4-inch Original Trilogy sculpts since the dawn of the Disney new movie toy era.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,412: Elite Praetorian Guard (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, September 27, 2017

If you haven't seen it yet, take a look at the Elite Praetorian Guard (The Last Jedi Line Look).   It has big giant split gown legs, a cool weapon, and a helmet that looks sort of like it has blinds on it.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,411: Kylo Ren (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, September 25, 2017

There's a Dark Side of the Force and a Light Side.  Also, Kylo Ren's got an evil side of the face with a battle scar for The Last Jedi, including this one from the TIE Silencer.  It's good enough for granddad, it's good enough for him.   But is it better than the carded one with a cape?   ...no.   Read on!
