Figure of the Day

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,533: Stormtrooper Squad Leader (Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 13, 2018

Today's 3 3/4-inch Stormtrooper Squad Leader is at a Target near you now, and probably marked down a few bucks.  It has a wonderful sculpt and sharp detailing, making it a great army builder if Hasbro ever decides to release it solo.  (See what I did there?) Anyway, get one. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,532: Stormtrooper (Mimban, a.k.a. Mudtrooper, Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 8, 2018

It's basically Han Solo with the mask glued on.  This Stormtrooper (Mimban) is in that 6 figure boxed set at Target, and it's a good collection for fans of the side stories and the Empire.   Even though you skipped the movie, I suspect you'll like the various troopers at the price.  (And it's on sale this week.)   Is it worth it?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,531: Imperial Assault Tank Driver (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 6, 2018

The must-buy trooper of the season is the Imperial Assault Tank Driver (The Vintage Collection)!  It fits in the tank, and you love the tank.  It shares parts with the recent Scarif Stormtrooper too.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,530: Darth Vader (Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 1, 2018

From Wave 3 of Force Link 2.0, this Darth Vader (Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)  is a new mold. I was surprised too - they incorporated some details, like the silver cheek, that we don't normally get at this size of original Darth Vader toys.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,529: R3-B0017 (Droid Factory Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 30, 2018

This is a favorite.  The R3-B0017 (Droid Factory Line Look) was from last year and, sadly, long gone - it tackles three favorite subjects of mine. One, it's a droid.  Two, it glows in the dark. Three, it shoehorns something goofy in as an "off-camera" figure in the existing storyline - in this case, Dathomir during The Clone Wars.  If you get a crack at this and are a fiend for glow-in-the-dark toys, you should get one.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,528: Princess Leia Organa (Bespin Escape, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 25, 2018

You'll probably find this Princess Leia Organa (Bespin Escape, The Black Series 6-Inch) at a Target near you.    This recent release is an exclusive with one of the best paint jobs we've ever seen on a Hasbro human head, thanks to their new realistic paint deco techniques.   Is she worth tracking down?  Yes.  But read on anyway!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,527: R4-B0018 (Droid Factory Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 23, 2018

New this year! The R4-B0018 (Droid Factory Line Look)  may be at a Disney park (or an unrelated auction site) near you right now.  It has a unique claw arm and a piece of candy corn - colored incorrectly, just like the robot.  It's cute! It's charming!  And it's a heck of a lot cheaper than last year's awesome droid, which we'll look at next week.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,526: Hera Syndulla (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 18, 2018

Hasbro continues its stretched-out series of Rebels with last year's Hera Syndulla (The Black Series 6-Inch)!   She has top-notch detailing, has articulation on par with the rest of the line, and has left retail because she's from last year.   Well, she's still worth tracking down if you can find one - Chopper and Ezra will join the crew of Ahsoka and Kanan in the coming months.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,525: R2-X2 (Red Squadron, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 16, 2018

It's not exactly on model, but R2-X2 (Red Squadron, The Black Series 6-Inch)  has some admirable parts.  It's big - and that's cool! The dirt is awesome! But the dome is the wrong color, as far as can be told when comparing it to previous releases in other sizes and formats.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,524: R2-D2 (Red Squadron, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 11, 2018

Amazon's R2-D2 (Red Squadron, The Black Series 6-Inch) is pretty good - but it lacks most of the cool extra gear from the clean, single releases.  It's still pretty cool and filthy, though.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,523: Qi'ra (Corellia, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 9, 2018

This Qi'ra (Corellia, The Black Series 6-Inch) may or may not be in a store near you - Han is around, but she seems to disappear.  It's a great figure with excellent sculpted detail and a pretty good portrait, so if you finally got off your butt and saw the movie maybe you're in the mood to buy some action figures now.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,522: Clone Commander Wolffe (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 4, 2018

Check out Clone Commander Wolffe, a shared exclusive that started showing up over the summer. You might see it at Barnes & Noble, GameStop, or Disney Stores - or not, if it sold.  The new head looks great.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,521: Admiral Piett (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 2, 2018

A new figure with a lot of shared parts, the Admiral Piett (The Black Series 6-Inch) will go nicely with your General Veers.  The former is shared onlnie, the latter is now hitting a Walgreens theoretically near you.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,520: R5-D8 (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 27, 2018

Amazon's exclusive R5-D8 (The Black Series 6-Inch) is unlike previous versions of this specific droid.  Previous representations usually look a lot like R5-D4, with the blue arm panels.  Some even have yellow stripes in the red columns on the chest.  This one is colored almost exactly like the 1979 Kenner R4-D4, which doesn't mean that it necessarily matches the on-screen droid that served Jek Porkins - but there's not a lot of reference, either.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,519: 4-LOM (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 25, 2018

The 4-LOM (The Black Series 6-Inch) brings you another bounty hunter in the oh-so-popular larger scale - and the head is clear green, so shine a light through that for double-plus fun.   It includes a blaster.  Read on!
