Figure of the Day

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,417: Resistance Tech Rose (The Black Series, The Last Jedi)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, October 16, 2017

Check out Walmart's exclusive 3 3/4-inch Resistance Tech Rose (The Black Series, The Last Jedi).  I haven't seen them in a store for about a month, but it's a nifty take on a character we'll get to meet in December.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,416: Luke Skywalker (Jedi Master, The Black Series, The Last Jedi)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, October 11, 2017

If you were lucky, you also found Luke Skywalker (Jedi Master, The Black Series) 3 3/4-inch figure during the Force Friday II weekend memorial toy launch and BBQ at a Walmart near you... and it probably didn't ring up, either.   Well, they're in circulation and it's a pretty good figure - it has articulation and a cloth cloak, while the cheaper, more findable one has less articulation and a really good plastic cloak.  Which should you buy?  Both, but read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,415: Rey (2-Pack, The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, October 9, 2017

Newish from The Last Jedi, this Rey (2-Pack) figure is a little different than the single one - the sculpt is a little different, the legs have a different range of motion, and the faces are a little different.  Also she has a Millennium Falcon-inspired backpack cannon, so go ahead and get both.  This one is made in Vietnam, the single one is from China.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,414: Elite Praetorian Guard (2-Pack, The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, October 4, 2017

Take a look at the Elite Praetorian Guard (2-Pack, The Last Jedi Line Look) with its bonnet.  Ofsnoke has a cool bladed weapon and a faceless mask, and is one of (so far) three different 3 3/4-inch guards on the market.   Should you get it?  Of course.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,413: Obi-Wan Kenobi (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, October 2, 2017

I was surprised to find Yoda and Obi-Wan Kenobi (The Last Jedi Line Look) over Force Friday weekend.  This is a spectacular figure for the asking price - not only does it talk, but the design is really good.   He can't sit in a Landspeeder, but there are jointed legs, a fantastic painted beard, one of the best Alex Guinness faces yet rendered in plastic, and oh yes - it's one of the few new 3 3/4-inch Original Trilogy sculpts since the dawn of the Disney new movie toy era.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,412: Elite Praetorian Guard (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, September 27, 2017

If you haven't seen it yet, take a look at the Elite Praetorian Guard (The Last Jedi Line Look).   It has big giant split gown legs, a cool weapon, and a helmet that looks sort of like it has blinds on it.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,411: Kylo Ren (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, September 25, 2017

There's a Dark Side of the Force and a Light Side.  Also, Kylo Ren's got an evil side of the face with a battle scar for The Last Jedi, including this one from the TIE Silencer.  It's good enough for granddad, it's good enough for him.   But is it better than the carded one with a cape?   ...no.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,410: Snoke (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, September 20, 2017

After a long wait, we got a figure of Snoke (The Last Jedi Line Look)!   He comes in a big playset, but if you don't want to buy the playset a super-articulated version is coming in the new Vintage line next year.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,409: Han Solo (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, September 18, 2017

Packaged with Boba Fett in a two-pack, this Han Solo (The Last Jedi Line Look) is in stores now.  I'm willing to make that bet because stores seem to have a lot of these - but they're neat.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,408: Jyn Erso (Forces of Destiny)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, September 13, 2017

I wasn't sure what to make of Jyn Erso (Forces of Destiny) when it showed up, but it's pretty good.  The "adventure figure" as Hasbro calls them stands well, can hold her accessories, and has pretty great articulation given what we usually see from dolls for girls.   It may not be for you, but it's a nifty and largely well-made product.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,407: Resistance Pilot Tallie (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, September 11, 2017

Coming with the first-ever figure scale blue A-Wing Fighter, Resistance Pilot Tallie is awesome.  We think.  We don't know what she does in the movie yet, but she's nifty with a non-removable helmet.  I like her!  I like her ship, too. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,406: Boba Fett (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, September 8, 2017

It's a new sculpt Boba Fett!  He's based on his The Empire Strikes Back deco, and so far looks pretty great.  He's skinnier than some, with a good helmet and a rocket pack you can mount on his rocket pack.  Check it out - read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,405: C-3PO (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 7, 2017

So, here's C-3PO!  He's new.  It's not obvious.  The pose is different from some recent gold protocol droids, plus he's got that whole Force Link thing on his foot.   As the new line goes, given that he has no accessories, this may be the least interesting new figure.  Still, I bought one.  Why?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,404: Darth Vader (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, September 6, 2017

It's Star Wars so of course there's a new Darth Vader - this time packaged with the Probe Droid.  It's packed 1 per carton of 4 toys, the other 3 being Rathtars, so these tend to sell out quickly.  Particularly since it's the first new Original Trilogy thing in a while.  Should you get one?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,403: Luke Skywalker (Jedi Master, The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 5, 2017

After an absence of new figures for The Force Awakens, the original trilogy's main hero gets not one, but three known 3 3/4-inch scale action figures for The Last Jedi so far!  The Luke Skywalker (Jedi Master) is in stores now and you might even be able to find it at a store near you this week.  Should you track him down?  Read on!
