Figure of the Day

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,090: Darth Vader (Mission Series 2014)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, August 5, 2014

This Darth Vader was packaged with Luke in a Bespin Mission Series 2-pack.  It's virtually identical to a 2013 release, save for some of the chest sculpting and other batch variances.  The Luke ain't bad, but he's tomorow - read on to find out more about Darth Vader!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,089: Darth Sidious (Mission Series 2014)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, August 4, 2014

Oh... yeah!  Figure of the Day is back with Darth Sidious, a simultaneously fantastic and weird take on the Sith Lord from the most recent Star Wars movie which, at 9 years old, means we're all dying. Slowly.   It's a fun figure, particularly the split robe pants - these are just fantastic.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,088: Snowtrooper Commander (The Black Series 2014)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, July 3, 2014

Rounding out this week's Figure of the Day special run is a Snowtrooper Commander!  It has a great sculpt, a ton of articulation, and two weapons - you can't beat it!  Well, maybe you can, but it would be tough.  Check it out, and read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,087: Toryn Farr (The Black Series 2014)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, July 2, 2014

A new character!  It's Toryn Farr, who is like Uhura with slightly less to do.  The Hoth hero here has headphones and a cool blaster.  Her build is basically 2010 Hoth Leia, with a new head, new vest, new hands, and new forearms.  You're going to love it - even if you don't think you need it,  you totally do.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,086: Yoda (The Black Series 2014)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 1, 2014

If you're looking for a figure that aspires to give you 1980 engineering with 2014 prices and sculpting, Yoda is it! The new The Black Series 3 3/4-inch figure has a cane, flute, coat, belt, and backpack while somehow only having 5 points of articulation at about $11.   It fits in his backpack just fine, and the jacket needs some fidgeting - but is it good otherwise?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,085: Luke Skywalker (The Black Series 2014)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, June 30, 2014

And we're back!  This new Luke Skywalker figure is shipping now if you ordered online somewhere like our sponsors at Entertainment Earth.   It has more articulation than nearly any other Star Wars figure at this size, and has quite the accessory pool.   It even looks better than some of the early promo images - but is it worth tracking down during the summer heat?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,084: Snowtrooper (Saga Legends 2014)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, June 5, 2014

Rounding out the new foursome from the great white north, the Snowtrooper is one of those figures you'll be mad you can't get more of.   The split "skirt" lets him sit, but the wide sculpt may make it difficult to cram him in certain vehicles - but he's perfect for filling out your AT-AT's cargo hold.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,083: Darth Maul (Saga Legends 2014)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, June 4, 2014

From Canada, with love!  This new Darth Maul is in stores now - there, not here - and is an all-new sculpt with a flared blade on the lightsaber, if you keep tabs on such things.  He can fit in the Sith Infiltrator vehicle, stand, and fight.  Can you ask for more? Probably, but you won't get it for the price.  Read on

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,082: Luke Skywalker (Saga Legends 2014)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, June 3, 2014

While my flight continues to not board me, why not read about Luke Skywalker? This new 2014 Saga Legends figure is a new sculpt in Canada right now.  Is it worth the loonies?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,081: Obi-Wan Kenobi (Saga Legends 2014)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, June 2, 2014

We're back! (A Dinosaur's story.)  This Obi-Wan Kenobi is today's Star Wars Figure of the Day!  It just hit Canada and, so far, seemingly nowhere else.  This wave's absence from store shelves and online pre-sells is conspicuous so far, but thankfully a kind soul managed to help me get a set to show all of you. 

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,080: Merumeru (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, January 17, 2014

It's hiatus time again! But first - meet Merumeru, a Wookiee warrior that is a stunningly great improvement over previous Wookiee warriors.  At first glance I thought it was a tweaked version of a previous figure, but I was wrong!  It's really good.  Go get one. Read on

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,079: Clone Commander Neyo (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, January 16, 2014

FOTD is going on break after this week, but we've still got Clone Commander Neyo and one more figure to go!  He's not perfect, but it's a superior update for the character and as an added bonus, he included some TV Clone Wars detailing on his face.  Even more surprising, Hasbro retooled the back of his armor to look distinctive and different from the other Clones.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,078: Vizam (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, January 15, 2014

It's new! There was a previous version a few years back, but Vizam the Nikto brings us another update from the 6-joint era!  It's nice, it has a helmet, and it has another cool clamp-on cannon for the Sail Barge Hasbro will never make.  Aren't you lucky?  Read on

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,077: Darth Plagueis (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, January 14, 2014

Sith happens! Aside from a brief mention in Revenge of the Sith, the design, character, and general sense of Darth Plagueis can be described as being very very dark in his costuming and quite well constructed.  Is he important?  Well, that's up to you.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,076: Mace Windu (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, January 13, 2014

A re-retool, the new The Black Series Mace Windu takes the 30th Anniversary/Vintage Collection figure body, give him new arms and a new head, and presto - improved figure!  The wrist movement is about perfect, and I dig the new elements a lot.  Read on!
