Figure of the Day

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,349: Baze Malbus (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 7, 2017

This bigger Baze Malbus figure is in circulation now - if you're lucky enough to find one. (Just get it online.)  It has a huge gun and great articulation, plus rather large hair.  There's also an easily lost accessory in the mix!   You know you want one - read on.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,348: Chirrut Imwe (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 2, 2017

If you didn't get the 6-inch version of Chirrut Imwe, you totally should.  The cloth robes, the great articulation, and the surprisingly well-engineered lightbow all make for a great figure.    Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,347: Imperial Death Trooper (Target, The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, February 28, 2017

If you aren't yet sick of seeing the Imperial Death Trooper figures, Target has one too - theirs is in a gift set with a figure you want and another figure you already have.  This 6-inch trooper has distinctive gear over its armor, which means it's the version you want.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,346: R5-K6 (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, February 23, 2017

Hey, it's R5-K6!  The red robot is a new mold only seen at Toys R Us so far - but R5-D4 is coming next.   Should you get it?  I hope you already did - they're starting to vanish from Toys R Us in my neck of the woods already.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,345: R7-F5 (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, February 21, 2017

Hey, it's R7-F5! I'm on a plane so I wrote these up in advance so you could have something to read.  Its orange and I like it.  I hope you like it too.  Read on!

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!
