Figure of the Day

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,950: Darth Vader (The Dark Times, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, August 11, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Darth Vader (The Dark Times, The Vintage Collection). It's probably Hasbro's very best overall Darth Vader. The articulation is good - Vader can nod up and down. He has two extra hands. He has a hilt and a fully-lit lightsaber to. Short of a retool with a bashed-up helmet, I assume this is as good as a Darth Vader in this size is going to get for a decade. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,949: Ahsoka Tano (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, August 9, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Ahsoka Tano (The Black Series). This is her first 6-inch figure based on the live-action appearances, and with two lightsabers it's pretty great! The knee articulation is clever and the sculpting is, as always, great. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,948: Yoda (The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, August 4, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Yoda (The Retro Collection). It's very close to the 1980 original, . Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,947: The Client (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, August 2, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: The Client (The Black Series). Werner Herzog, as an Imperial gangster, complete with ice cream maker, can be yours right now. I like how this one turned out. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,946: Battle Droid (Droid Depot set, The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, July 28, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Battle Droid (Droid Depot set, The Black Series). It's from the Droid Depot 4-pack! The paint masks seem identical to the box figure and the carded Episode I figure, but the brown dirt/damage is lighter - so the Episode I/Droid Depot Battle Droids are virtually identical, and you probably can't tell there's any difference between this and the red/black boxed version without a side-by-side comparison.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,945: Imperial Death Trooper (The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 26, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Death Trooper (The Retro Collection). It's a Kenner-style figure borrows a lot from the original Stormtrooper figure from way back in 1978 - the non-articulated helmet and the incorporation of the original blaster come to mind. It's a glossy figure with bright green lenses, so it pops nicely Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,944: The Armorer (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, July 21, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: The Armorer (The Vintage Collection). She came out in 2020, but I didn't get the review done - so let's fix that while you're all distracted with Comic-Con, shall we? Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,943: Ahsoka Tano (The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 19, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Ahsoka Tano (The Retro Collection). It's a Kenner-style with bright colors and is one of very few new aliens in The Retro Collection line. She has two lightsabers that look a lot like the 1980s Luke Skywalker models, except with curved hilts. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,942: Clone Captain Ballast (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, July 14, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Clone Captain Ballast (The Vintage Collection). It's a clone that was on sale for Prime Day, and now, not. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,941: The Mandalorian (Beskar, The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 12, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: The Mandalorian (Beskar, The Retro Collection). It's a Kenner-style figure that adds a cloth cape, but keeps the same blasters as before. It's a good upgrade, but not quite as bright silver as the first one from 2021. Having said that, it's fun and you should probably look him up if you're still on board for Kenner stuff. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,940: See-Threepio (C-3PO, Droids, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, July 7, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: C-3PO (Droids, The Vintage Collection). It's an exclusive and it's got a coin! This figure is much shorter than the 1985 original, but the colors are excellent and he has removable panels... with some gaps you can see through at some angles. Obviously, I like it. Collect all 3! Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,939: Bo-Katan Kryze (The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 5, 2022

More fun from the 1980s... by way of 2022! Bo-Katan Kryze (The Retro Collection). It's a Kenner-style figure that is a lot of fun to fuss with. She has brighter colors than her other figures, but the Kenner-esque deco is a mixed bag - the helmet probably has too much fine detail while the breastplate armor is completely unpainted. I still dig it - she fits in great with your old 1970s and 1980s Kenner vehicles and playsets, which tends to be one of the very best reasons to buy these new releases.Obviously, I recommend them all.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,938: Boba Fett (Droids, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, June 30, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Boba Fett (Droids, The Vintage Collection). It's an exclusive and it's got a coin! It's nicely articulated and since the old 1980s Droids Boba Fett wasn't in cartoon colors, this is more than a little bit of a welcome addition to a tiny sub-line. Collect all 3! Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,937: The Armorer (The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, June 28, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: The Armorer (The Retro Collection). It's a Kenner-style figure with a sculpt that looks like it came out of 1983 and a furry cape that's clever, yet unlike anything I can point to from the original toy line. I really like these guys, but they're not for everybody - if you have a big actual vintage Kenner toy stash in your toy box, these are some of the best things I've bought in ages.  Plus she has a giant hammer for smashing Stormtrooper heads.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,936: ARC Trooper (Umbra Operative, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, June 23, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: ARC Trooper (Umbra Operative, The Vintage Collection). It's an exclusive and it's colored to match your Halloween stuff! Also the Battlefront II game. I like it. Read on!
