Figure of the Day

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,344: Imperial Death Trooper (Rogue One Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, February 15, 2017

If you're a fan of the Imperial Death Trooper, you have many options.  3 3/4-inch figure collectors have four different versions from which to choose so far, this being the latest of them with special ops gear and a big retractable claw weapon.  It's neat.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,343: Shoretrooper (Rogue One Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, February 14, 2017

Today it's the wave 3 Shoretrooper!  I haven't seen it in person in a store yet, but you can get them online - or if you're lucky, in stores.   Is the new grunt worthwhile?  I think so.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,342: Grand Admiral Thrawn (Rebels, Rogue One Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, February 9, 2017

3241 It's Grand Admiral Thrawn!  It's the first time he's been sold on an individual card this century, and it's his debut figure from Star Wars Rebels

He has a holster, a blaster, and a giant rocket launcher - maybe it's not exactly what you saw on TV, but at least they got the blue right.  And he has a nice paint job.  And dark blue hair.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,341: Death Trooper (The Black Series 3 3/4-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, February 7, 2017

What a difference a few weeks makes!  Not long ago, I was seeing Walmart's exclusive Death Trooper just sitting around in big numbers.  Now?  Not so much. The super-articulated 3 3/4-inch figure has two blasters, no holsters, and better than normal articulation.   It's good.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,340: Unkar Plutt (The Force Awakens Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, February 1, 2017

Hey kids, it's Unkar Plutt!  This 2016 figure has a removable hand and a claw replacement - serious toy stuff.   You might even be able to find this figure at a store near you still, as he wasn't necessarily the most popular bad guy in the movie - get him if you can.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,339: Sergeant Jyn Erso (Ground Crew, Rogue One Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, January 31, 2017

Today it's the swell Sergeant Jyn Erso (Ground Crew Disguise) figure!   This is interesting - it seems Jyn's body is the same as the regular ground crew figure, only with a different head and some new accessories.  It's great!   Read on.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,338: Coruscant Guard (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, January 25, 2017

Previously known as the Shock Trooper, the 6-inch version of this figure said Coruscant Guard on the box.  The red and white Clone has marvelous paint applications including big scratches and awesome scuffing that make it look like it had seen some action.   It's also part of a swell four-pack.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,337: Bodhi Rook (Rogue One Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, January 23, 2017

Rounding out the main group of Rogue One heroes, it's the pilot!  Bodhi Rook is fairly loaded with gear, including a cool blaster and a backpack that actually looks like the gizmo in the movie.  You can take his vest off, but the goggles are part of his head.   I haven't seen this one in stores yet - so will you want to order yours online?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,336: C-3PO (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, January 18, 2017

Hey, it's C-3PO!  This is the Walgreens one and it's fantastic.  I hope you got one to go with the R2-D2 I also hope you got.   You can probably find one in a local store if you hit a few stores in your locale, but for now just enjoy this review.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,335: 212th Attack Battalion Utapau Trooper (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, January 17, 2017

This 212th Attack Battalion Utapau Trooper is one of four figures in the Entertainment Earth exclusive 4-pack available now.  It sports some of the best battle-damage I've ever seen on a Hasbro action figure, plus it's exactly as articulated as previous Clone Trooper action figures.  I love the little chips and dings in the orange areas, plus the dirt and scrapes are no slouch.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,334: Finn (Jakku, Rogue One Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, January 16, 2017

Today we look at Finn!  But he's different - this is the one from the 2-pack with Phasma that just came out and you didn't get yet.  His jacket is a different color and some details are just a tiny bit different.  You know what that means - it's different enough to make you mad.  Check it out, and read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,333: Captain Phasma (Rogue One Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, January 12, 2017

You might not want another Captain Phasma, but this 3 3/4-inch one is interesting - it comes from Vietnam and not China, meaning we're talking new molds here.  The deco is different, the height has changed, and some of the sculpted details were tweaked - but she has basically the same pose and design.  Finn's even more interesting, but he's on tap for next week.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,332: Princess Leia Organa (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, January 11, 2017

The hard-to-find Princess Leia Organa from the 6-inch line is pretty good.  With any luck she'll get a little more distribution later in the year, but for now she's available in an assortment with 5 other new figures that is a little tough to come by.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,331: C2-B5 (Rogue One Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, January 10, 2017

What's this?  Another C2-B5?  Yup!  One was from Disney, this one is from Hasbro. Their colors are just different enough so that they look like different droids, so I'd say you'd want to get both.  Or you would, if it didn't require the purchase of the AT-ACT.  (It's expensive.)  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,330: Imperial AT-ACT Driver (Rogue One Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, January 9, 2017

Much has been said about his vehicle, but not much of the Imperial AT-ACT Driver himself.  My sample can't actually sit in the vehicle - so I'm not crazy about it.  It's a decent looking figure with swell paint and a great design, but it's never a good sign when a vehicle's pilot can't pilot the vehicle.  Want to see more?
