Figure of the Day

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,545: R4-H18 (Droid Factory Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 25, 2018

The Disney takeover has resulted in more Hasbro-compatible toys at theme parks, like this year's ice sculpture-inspired Christmas robot R4-H18 (Droid Factory Line Look).   It's a typical R4 unit cast in a clear white plastic, frosty with silver highlights and decorated with festive and removable drinks.  It can't make use of the third leg and the drink tray at the same time, but that's how these things go.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,544: Jawa (Droid Factory Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 20, 2018

Is this the worst action figure of 2018? Yes. The Disney Sandcrawler pack-in Jawa (Droid Factory Line Look) is clearly cobbled together from Hasbro parts someone cast and didn't resculpt over the joints.  It's crude, and if you told me it was a bootleg I'd believe you.  At least the droid is OK and the Sandcrawler is nice. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,543: Gonk Droid (Droid Factory Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 18, 2018

A Sandcrawler pack-in at Disney theme parks, the Gonk Droid (Droid Factory Line Look) has a pop-off chassis and jointed legs. It's very similar to the Hasbro one from a few years ago, down to sculpted joints that worked on Hasbro's but are ornamental here.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,542: Kylo Ren (Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 13, 2018

The Force Link 2.0 Kylo Ren is a lot like the one from the first Force Link band last year - but with a different symbol on his boot, and a different sound chip.   You may not need more Kylo Ren figures, but you also might need them all - and this Solo: A Star Wars Story release does meet the "just different enough to make you mad" quota.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,541: L3-37 (Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 11, 2018

You might have seen this L3-37 (Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)  around, but maybe not.  It's good!  A heavily modified R3 droid has arms and legs, but you'll ese parts from an old Astromech chassis placed strategically on her body.  It works.  Oh, it works.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,540: Range Trooper (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 6, 2018

You know you want the Range Trooper (The Vintage Collection).  But can you find it?  It has a white blaster - the Force Link 2.0 version has black - and tons of articulation.  You'll want to get a few of each to fill out your playsets and dioramas.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,539: Han Solo (Vandor-1, Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 4, 2018

This Han Solo (Vandor-1) comes form a boxed set meant as a tie-in release to the home video for Solo: A Star Wars Story but has been in pretty short supply at brick and mortar.  (Order online!)  It's a nicely-textured figure with goggles, a holster, some snow, and nifty boots.   You'll want this one.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,538: Han Solo (Brown Jacket, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 29, 2018

For years we've had more than Obi-Wan Kenobi, and now we've got more than one Han Solo.  Based on the 2018 Alden model, this 3 3/4-inch action figure is loaded with articulation and may be at a store near you.  We've been getting more new cases of wave 1 in my neck of the woods.  Read on!

16bit.com Figure of the Day - Onell Design Glyos Greeden

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, November 28, 2018

Another off-topic figure, but with some news rolled in.  Onell Design will be holding a drop Thursday night at 9:30 PM EST,  with another new figure that might look somewhat similar to this one in terms of tributes to days gone by.

But from last month, take a look at this Greeden - it's Kenner's Greedo colors mixed with Pheyden's design, giving us all a great tribute to a classic alien action figure.  The next one has not yet been announced, and it will be sold as a mystery figure tonight.  Click here to read about Greeden.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,537: Qi'Ra (Vandor-1, Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 27, 2018

This Qi'ra is one of Hasbro's best.  Great sculpt, good deco, and I didn't realize there was anything in front of me but plastic perfection until I got out the macro lens. The lips are painted a little strangely, but to my eyes the figure looks superb.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,536: Stormtrooper (Mimban, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 22, 2018

Happy Thanksgiving! I'm thankful I found this Stormtrooper (Mimban, The Black Series 6-Inch)  without much of a fight - it's a redeco of the 2013 Stormtrooper with a new head and a cape, but that's good enough for me.  Worth it if you can find one.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,535: Imperial Patrol Trooper (Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 20, 2018

Newish! This Imperial Patrol Trooper is at Target in a really cool boxed set right now, and it's been on sale for a few bucks off.  There are no known plans for a matching bike as of yet, but at least you can get the trooper before they go out of style.  Read on!

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!
