I'm pretty stoked whenever we get a Stormtrooper with marks of some sort, so last week's Walmart-only Imperial Shock Trooper was a treat. The mold is good, and the Shocktrooper markings from the Battlefront game make it even cooler. Want to know more? Read on!
Fresh from the drug store chain, Darth Vader (Emperor's Wrath) is out and about with improved armor deco, a retooled arm, and a new head. It's a decent figure - but it's still basically the same Vader from last year with a few modifications. Want to see more about this 6-inch figure? Read on!
From Walmart's white and blue X-Wing, the Poe Dameron (The Force Awakens X-Wing) brings you the figure from the Armor Up release body sculpt with a different head - complete with dedicated helmet. In addition to the X-Wing, he's also got a blaster - is this enough to warrant your cash assuming you can find it? Read on!
If you pre-ordered or ordered in a brief window 2 weeks ago, you got this Imperial Stormtrooper from Amazon's exclusive four figure boxed set. The 6-inch figure is basically the same as a regular Stormtrooper, with more black marks on his record and armor. It's not bad! It's not fancy, but it's neat. Read on!
Behold, the Clone Trooper Commander! This 6-inch figure is part of Amazon's (at least temporarily) sold-out boxed set tracing the evolution of the troopers over 6 of the 7 movies. This one is, like the others, exclusive to the set - you won't find this deco elsewhere in this size. Get one if you can, and read on!
Check out the 6-inch Clone Trooper (Phase II), complete with the revised bucket we've all been dying for - and some other changes. A few deco points were altered from the previous releases, so this one is actually distinctive beyond just the helmet. (But not by much.) Should you snag this item next time Amazon restocks it for a decent price? Read on!
Don't (or do) miss Poe Dameron! This 6-inch pilot figure has a great sculpt with lots of wonderful detail, but strange ankles and stranger face deco. If you leave the helmet on, it isn't bad - the swappable fists are a nice touch. But do you need this one? Read on!
I haven't seen the First Order Snowtrooper Officer in stores since I got mine last month, but hey - it's new! This exclusive takes a plain Snowtrooper (which isn't out yet) and adds a pauldron, thus making it a better figure than the regular release is likely to be. If you can get it, it's pretty slick - so good hunting. Read on!
The armored Flametrooper has neat armor but weird weapon integration - you can't quite plug in the backpack or torch. Is it worth paying up to get the orange body armor with First Order symbols? Read on!
Check out the First Order Snowtrooper. It's not bad - nice gun, decent sculpt, and for some reason space Wolverine claws for cosplay purposes. Is it worth adding to your growing army, or is it time to admit the grim, bony fingers reaching from the grave have deprived you of the joy you once experienced from toys as a child? Read on!
You love this guy. You'll like this figure. Boba Fett comes with clamp-on armor that feels like it fell out of a 1992 Kenner sketchbook - it's ugly, and it's neat. You may love it! You may not. That's up to you. I think it's neat enough to share with you, so read on!
Today in Figure of the Day: Luke Skywalker! Loosely inspired by the Sandstorm Scene and whatever was in the water at Kenner in the late 1980s, this Armor Up version of the Jedi Knight features the same sculpt and lightsaber from last year, but with wacky wrappings, belts, and a backpack for reasons nobody will ever truly understand. Is it worth the $13? Of course not - but it's weird and fun anyway, so read on!
Meet Goss Toowers - the Resistance's famous mechanic. Dig him up and shake his hand, and then wonder just what role he plays in the movie. He's got awesome metallic gloves and a spiffy helmet, but is he a character or is he just scenery? We'll find out soon, but until then we can look at the figure and squint. Read on!
We got a new Astromech with BB-8, so let's enjoy a new protocol droid with PZ-4CO! She's blue, she has a long neck, and she looks and feels more toy-like than a lot of other recent figures. For this reason, why wouldn't you want to buy one? Read on!
