Figure of the Day

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,264: Tasu Leech (The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 22, 2016

One of the many criminals we didn't get to spend as much time as we might have liked, Tasu Leech brings us a new character in a nifty costume with a big blaster.   He's shorter than the average 3 3/4-inch figure, but he doesn't look half bad otherwise.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,263: Nien Nunb (The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, March 18, 2016

Hey kids, it's Nien Nunb!  He's a lot like the 1983 Kenner figure, despite being from the 2015 movie.  He also has a backpack you can ignore.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,262: First Mate Quiggold (The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 17, 2016

And now, First Mate Quiggold!  He's the first mate on Sidon Ithano's ship, and one of Hasbro's most detailed 3 3/4-inch action figures for The Force Awakens.  And he has a giant rocket launcher that will no doubt go in to the collector's junk drawer.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,260: Sidon Ithano (The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 15, 2016

Also known as the Crimson Corsair, Sidon Ithano is part of a swell new 2-pack.  He's got 5 joints, a gun, and his pal Quiggold.  And a cape - I almost forgot the cape!  It's quite a cape.  Check it out, read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,259: Luke Skywalker (The Force Awakens Value 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, March 11, 2016

While I've got more of these bigger guys coming in the mail, this Luke Skywalker completes the current round of 6-inch "value" figures which may be at a store that you don't frequent near you right now.  Luke doesn't have hip joints, but he is pretty big for the price.   Want to see more?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,258: Darth Vader (The Force Awakens Value 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 10, 2016

Another 6-inch budget figure!  Darth Vader is pretty much required to exist in any figure format, so the enlarged toy with reduced articulation would be a given.  He's not taller than Han or his casemates, but he is a lot more fun to play with than a cake topper.  Unlike the others, his lightsaber is completely removable from his hand - but should you go on a toy run to try to find this one?   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,257: Han Solo (The Force Awakens Value 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, March 9, 2016

Continuing the value range of 6-inch Hasbro figures at Family Dollar, let's look at Han Solo.   His blaster is molded to his hand, and the texture on his pants is pretty intense.   The head deco is similar to the vintage Kenner figures of old, and he looks a lot like Hasbro's other recent offerings of Harrison Ford from the original movie.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,256: Kanan Jarrus (The Force Awakens Value 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 8, 2016

And here we go again!  This Kanan Jarrus is a 6-inch action figure with 4 points of articulation that you can't really easily find online.   I'm only finding them at Family Dollar stores - it's a "value" item.   Should you get one?  Is a $6.75 6-inch figure worth your while?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,255: Constable Zuvio (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, December 9, 2015

Hey, it's Constable Zuvio!  He has a magnificent paint job on his armor, and we know absolutely nothing about him in the movie yet.  Well.  With that, I'm taking a FOTD break because I actually would like to see the movie before commenting any more on these - so read on, for what it's worth.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,254: Captain Phasma (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 8, 2015

Arguably the figure of the season, the 6-inch Captain Phasma is the one your pals want and can't find - I haven't seen her in stores personally yet, but her wave mates?  You'll see those.  She's pretty much exactly as good as you might expect from this line, so read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,253: Sandtrooper Sergeant (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, December 7, 2015

Check out the Sandtrooper Sergeant!  It's one of the exclusive figures in Entertainment Earth's Imperial Forces 6-inch action figure set.   This one has a different dirt pattern and a white pauldron - what more do you need?  Well, it's also got the blasters from the other releases - be sure to get this one!  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,252: R2-Q5 (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, December 4, 2015

He's back, and slightly bigger than ever (from Hasbro)!  R2-Q5 has opening panels with painted arms and a swell finish - but none of the scopes that came with R2-D2 two years ago.   Is it cool?  Well, I think so, but I'm biased.  It's in stock for ordering right now, and you can read on to see if you should care!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,251: First Order TIE Fighter Pilot (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 3, 2015

Elite!  The red-striped First Order TIE Fighter Pilot is the only 6-inch TIE Pilot from the new movie you can own today - but the non-striped version is up for pre-order at fine toy stores everywhere.  This one, however, comes with a TIE Fighter with wings so tall they can black out the sun.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,250: Lt. Oxixo (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, December 2, 2015

Hey, it's Lt. Oxixo!  He's more than just a TIE Pilot - specifically, he's painted more than just a TIE Pilot.  This 6-inch scale exclusive has an added silver crest, a silver stripe on his chest, and different buttons on his sleeve - plus more paint on his gun.   Should you freak out and buy this exclusive right now?  Scientists say yes.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,249: Crimson Stormtrooper (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 1, 2015

Hey, it's the Crimson Stormtrooper!   Or Magma Stormtrooper, or Lumiya's squad, depending on where you saw red troopers like this first.  (I'm voting for Lumiya.)  It's pretty awesome - and part of a new boxed set that's available right nowRead on!
