Figure of the Day

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,604: C-3PO (Droid Depot, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, July 18, 2019

Just different enough to make you mad... and it's better, too!  This Galaxy's Edge  C-3PO (Droid Depot, The Black Series 6-Inch) uses 4-LOM's arms to give you an all-gold C-3PO with jointed elbows.  The previous versions were rather stiff - this is a big improvement.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,603: Chopper (C1-10P, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 16, 2019

While you're distracted waiting for Comic-Con news, read about Chopper (C1-10P, The Black Series 6-Inch.)  This is a good one - there are claw arms in the dome, a claw in the torso, swappable legs, and a puff of fake plastic smoke.  It pretty much has it all.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,602: Rey (Batuu, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, July 11, 2019

This Rey (Batuu, The Black Series 6-Inch) from Galaxy's Edge is something I did not much want, but is still pretty impressive.  While the original release of this figure is plentiful and cheap, Disney's boxed set version has that realistic face printing that does make a big difference.  If you're good with your Rey collection, you don't need it - but if you want the very best?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,601: BB-8 (Resistance line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 9, 2019

BB-8 (Resistance line look) comes with that really cool Poe figure in a 2-pack you might see at a store near you now.  He's cleaner than usual, and this is one of the lower-priced ways to get a BB-8 these days.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,600: Chewbacca (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, July 4, 2019

Happy 4th!  It's the first modern-era version of Chewbacca the wookiee on the original movie's cardback design, and it's a redeco of The Black Series 3 3/4-inch figure that you forgot they made.  This means it's really good, folks.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,599: Lando Calrissian (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 2, 2019

New if you can find it, the Lando Calrissian (The Vintage Collection) is theoretically shipping now!  He has a blaster, a cape, a scarf, and a working holster - plus an even better 3 3/4-inch likeness of Donald Glover.  If you can find it, you should get one.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,598: Imperial Stormtrooper (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, June 27, 2019

This is it!  Tiny improvements over time have finally fallen to this all-new Imperial Stormtrooper based on the Rogue One redesign - the tell being the blaster.  It has more articulation and better, shinier detail than ever before.  But is it perfect?  It's certainly very very good - read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,597: Resistance A-Wing Pilot (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, June 25, 2019

This is the Resistance A-Wing Pilot from The Last Jedi red A-Wing Fighter.  She has a new head!  It's not just a repaint!  Granted, you'll have to squint to discover this.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,596: Hondo Ohnaka (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, June 20, 2019

New from Disney's Galaxy's Edge, Hondo Ohnaka (The Black Series 6-Inch)  is one of the few all-new characters in the $69.99 Hasbro figure boxed sets.   He has a blaster and a costume that's similar to - but not identicial to - those in The Clone Wars and Rebels.  Do you need it? Of course not - but you'll want one.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,595: Poe Dameron (Resistance line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, June 18, 2019

This Poe Dameron (Resistance line look) is a weird gem.  If you like 1978-1985 Kenner figures, Poe is essential.  He's thinner and fits in your X-Wings without a fuss - even better than The Force Awakens movie figures.  This is an action figure made to fit in vehicles, so naturally there are no Hasbro Resistance vehicles.  Just make the most out of your movie ones.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,594: 41st Elite Corps Clone Trooper (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, June 13, 2019

More than just a repack, the 41st Elite Corps Clone Trooper (The Vintage Collection)  adds another variant to The Black Series 3 3/4-inch figure from a few years ago. With the more realistic face paint and tons more grey markings, this is different enough to upgrade.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,593: Han Solo (Carbonite, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, June 11, 2019

Weirdly this 2019 reissue of Han Solo (Carbonite, The Vintage Collection) did not get Hasbro's fancy new face painting.  Rather, it got a playset, a vintage cardback, and a magnet in the back of the carbonite block.  All in all, still a worthy purchase.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,592: Han Solo (Stormtrooper, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, June 6, 2019

Also at Target in the clothing section this week is Han Solo (Stormtrooper, The Vintage Collection) which seems to be a retooled Sandtrooper from 2009 with an all-new head.  The hair seems to be a separately molded piece, and the new-style face paint makes this an even better Harrison Ford portrait.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,591: Luke Skywalker (Stormtrooper, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, June 4, 2019

At a Target near you - most likely near Menswear, possibly near golf stuff and BBQ tongs - is this pretty great Luke Skywalker (Stormtrooper, The Black Series 6-Inch)  upgrade.  We first saw the head sculpt previewed at HasCon in a diorama with no real fanfare, and now we have it on the Stormtrooper Luke body complete with commlink, whiter plastic armor, and a lot of dirt.  Let's say it's dirt.  Let's not think about what brown smudges in a space station's sewer really are.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,590: Han Solo (Echo Base, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, May 30, 2019

With a new head, this Han Solo (Echo Base, The Vintage Collection)  is probably worth a look.  Harrison Ford never looked  better, is what I would like to say, but the just-released Stormtrooper one is even better.  This is still plenty good.  Read on!
