Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,892

This Gasgano from 2012 lacks the Pit Droid from 1999, but has a flag and slightly different deco.  So you'll probably begrudgingly buy this one, if at all.  Read on!

Who loves a good argument?  The Nightsister which just showed up at Target is sold with animated versions of Darth Maul and Savage Opress, but is sculpted to match a prequel concept for a proto-Darth Maul Sith Witch character.  She's not very cartoony, but if anything, feels like a stealth "concept" figure rather than a Mother Talzin substitute.

The Darth Sidious that is made the least tends to sell best, and the 2012 version ain't bad. It has a nice head sculpt popped on a 2005 body, but the sculpt of the 1999 version is pretty charming still.  Is this a worthy upgrade?  Read on!

This is a good one.  The Yellow R6-Series Astromech Droid was probably my favorite from the ones I was able to get in Orlando last month, because it looks just familiar and just different enough to be awesome.  It's also in some really gonzo color.  Is it worth tracking down?

There are many, many C-3PO figures and this is one of them.  Based on a retooled and redecorated 2005 mold, the Resurgence of the Jedi release has some extra smudging and black oil paint. Is it cool?  Read on!

This Plo Koon was built off a modified 2002 release with some changes made from the waist on down, allowing the figure to sit.  Sort of.  Is it worth getting? Should you complete the Jedi High Council?

It's R5-D8! I know it looks like R5-D4, but it's not.  Trust me.  This redeco uses a build-a-droid body and creates Jek Porkins' trusty droid in a different paint job than they did for Galactic Heroes.

Not quite as exciting as an all-new astromech, this older Destroyer Droid has limited articulation but a decent sculpt.  There's not a lot to it, but it looks good. Want to know more? Read on!

Given the nebulous nature of what constitutes an actual full figure, the Red R9-Series Astromech Droid is more than a little arbitrary.  We'll be viewing the Star Tours Droid Factory figures as unique characters, defined by the dome.  (The body is, of course, up to you.)  This one is bright red, almost orange, with a rich silver texture and a softer sculpt than his brothers.  Is it worth the trip and obscene price on eBay?

Let's look at Dagobah Darth Vader.  The funny thing about this one, there are two other versions of the "character" but all of them are a little different. Why is this one the best?

This Darth Maul is a lot like another Darth Maul, but it's got a jacket.  But no shirt.  Why? I have no idea, but here it is so read on.

Check out this Clone Trooper.  It's red! There are other ones too, but this one is red.  It also has some added panel lining, so it looks good.  Read on!

This Power Droid is in stores now, exclusive to Target and an all-new tool. The top comes off! Amazing. Well, it's neat, let's say.  Is it worth your while?  Read on!

While not the last, this release of  Commander Bacara may well be the best.  It came in a Battle Pack and has some nice damage deco.  Should you get yours?  Read on!

Remember Durge?  Nine years ago, he was revealed as a toy for the very first time and this animated version of the figure came a little bit later.  Is he cool?
