Oh, what a Cutup this Clone Cadet is!  Cadet #4 is here, and we're still missing a few other ones.  Is this figure worth getting? I think so.  Read on!

She was spared two different death scenes only to wind up in sexy rags in The Force Unleashed! This hard-to-find Shaak Ti sports a lightsaber and not much of a costume.  Is it worth getting? Read on!

It's the Rodian Jedi from Target!  This cool figure reuses Luke parts in a fun way that results in a big-headed alien with a laser sword.  You'll want this one.  Read on!

If you collected the Jedi High Council sets, you'll end up with some figures like Anakin Skywalker that, by now, you may own 5 times over.  He's just a little different and has no accessories.  Should you care? Read on!

There are figures you must own in your collection, but Passel Argente is not one of them.  It's a perfectly good figure with limited articulation, but it's not like he was a major character.  Is greenie  worth it? Read on!

Here's a neat one.  Check out the Tartakovsky Clone Trooper, part of a once-rare boxed set which is now a dirt-cheap boxed set.  It's disgusting how awesome this figure is for the price.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,832 with Bonus Video Review

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, June 21, 2012

Last but not least in this new wave of Vintage is Clone Pilot Odd Ball, a nicely-sculpted and pretty nicely painted new pilot! We didn't need a new mold, but Hasbro gave it to us and it turned out well.  How well?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,831

Some figures I love, and you'll hate.  This Obi-Wan Kenobi may qualify, given it has an astonishingly good sculpt and Ewan McGregor likeness, but only 5 points of articulation.  Since I'm right and you're wrong, what's wrong with you?  Read on and find out!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,830

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, June 19, 2012

It's the 2012 Luke Skywalker in his Hoth gear! For the first time ever, this outfit gets things like wrist joints and ankles.  Was it worth the wait, or does Hasbro need to redo it already?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,829 with Bonus Video

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, June 18, 2012

Another one!  The just-released 2012 Nikto Skiff Guard sports a great sculpt and exceptional articulation.  And we made a video of it, too!  Want to know how excited you should be about this one?  Read on, or watch the video after the jump!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,828

It's hard to find, but pretty neat!  The 501st Legion Clone Trooper from the vintage line is mostly old parts, but new paint makes everything fun again.  Check it out!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,827 with Bonus Video

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, June 14, 2012

It's the new Vintage Collection Starkiller!  He has so much gear, it's crazy.  The sculpt is good, the paint is mostly good, and if you love lightsabers then this is the figure for you.   Want to know more?  Read on, and watch the video after the jump!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,826 with Bonus Video

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, June 13, 2012

It ain't perfect, but this just-released Vintage 2012 Grand Moff Tarkin is pretty good.  This is a figure with great engineering and parts reuse, and unfortunate color and plastic choices.  (He's shiny.)  The cloth skirt doesn't look so bad in person, and the sculpt is exceptional.  Want to know more?  Read on, or watch the video after the jump!  (It's short, but not too short.)

New! (But no video.)  Kithaba has red pants, just like the Barada figure you had or wished you had as a kid! He also has a variation, but you knew that.   Is he cool? YES! Read on!
