There are a lot of exciting new characters in Hasbro's The Force Awakens toy line, and Darth Vader is not one of them. It's a figure you may have bought, but it has a new droid sidekick - and that's interesting. Read on!
Today in Figure of the Day, Reistance Trooper! We don't know much about him yet, but we know he has a neat helmet and can sit in vehicles. Also, we assume it's a him. It could just be a clever disguise. Read on!
While most figures are sold out in my neck of the woods, if you're lucky enough to stumble on new The Force Awakens action figures you're likely to find Finn. He's one of the new major players in the movie, and like the rest we really don't know all that much about why he's there or what he's going to be doing. It's a decent looking action figure, though. Read on!
The first First Order Stormtrooper has a big gun - other versions are coming, but the figures are generally the same. This one comes with a giant Nerf-like gun, and I quite like it. Will you? Read on!
The First Order TIE Fighter Pilot looks a heck of a lot like the Imperial TIE Fighter Pilot - same basic colors, same basic layout. It's less bulky, though, and other differences make this one an interesting take on the figure we've all crammed in vehicles since the first one in 1982. Read on!
They can't all be winners, but this figure is crucial if you want to assemble the Jungle cluster of "Combine Weapons." The Luke Skywalker (Bespin / Jungle, The Force Awakens) is a perfectly nice figure, but a) you probably own it, and b) the backpack isn't enough to make the new, added backpack hole very interesting. It may also amuse you to know that the backpack has more joints than the action figure. Read on!
While same figure/different weapons are popping up, so far there's only one 3 3/4-inch Captain Phasma. There's also a 6-inch one - but that's hard to find so far. She's tall, she's silver, but - surprisingly - only her chest is painted. The limbs and head are molded in a silvery plastic. Read on!
We still haven't seen everything - but there are many Kylo Ren action figures. Variant accessories may be a thing now, so keep your peepers peeled. This one has a bear trap of sorts, but the figure itself has a great sculpt, good deco, and stands up just fine. It's eight bucks, and you can order it at Entertainment Earth or elsewhere. Read on!
Hey kids, while we wait for Friday let's look at some other toys you have have missed. The R2-D60 figure was sold as part of Disneyland's 60th Birthday and isn't too expensive if you have to turn to the secondary market. Get while the getting is good. Read on!
Today in Figure of the Day - before a brief hiatus so I can get some other things in order so we can hopefully all have a fun September - is R5-Series Astromech Droid Black with Silver and Orange. It's another Disney droid, and potentially available at a theme park "near" you right now. Is it worth it? Read on!
