Another day, another droid! Our pal Shannon helped me out so now we're going to look at more robots starting with the R7-Series Astromech Droid Gold. It's a new Disney droid - notable in that the "Hasbro" name has been scraped off the figure's legs now - and you can get it on your next trip to Anaheim. More are coming later this year, we hear, but how is this one? Read on!
It's time to go on hiatus for at least until the new droids show up - but first, let's look at the 6-inch Han Solo Stormtrooper Disguise! It's pretty nice - mine had some paint smudging that cleaned right up. He has a helmet and a blaster, plus his blaster has some extra paint on it - the regular Stormtrooper does not. As such, this may be a decent army-builder. Read on!
Check out Bossk (The Black Series 6-Inch)! He's pretty cool - but he's awesome on a shelf of other figures. By himself, he's just pretty good - does he look cooler than the 7-inch Unleashed figure from a few years ago? Click here to find out when you read on!
The Rebels Stormtrooper Commander is a must-buy because it comes with Hera. It's also pretty neat - like every custom Sandtrooper before 1996, it's just a Stormtrooper with a shoulder pad. That's pretty much it, and that's really all it needs to be. I like it. Read on!
Check out Ezra Bridger (Cadet) from the Mission Series. It's the first alternate costume figure for one of the Rebels cast, so it's a pretty exciting thing to have here! He has a recolored helmet, a slightly shorter build, and a pretty great paint job. Read the full review!
From the Mission Series line, here's Luke Skywalker (Hoth)! He's got Wampa damage and is a pretty good modern update to the original 1982 Kenner action figure. I've been seeing a few of these in stores this week, so I'd suggest getting while the getting is good and the pricing isn't increased. Read on!
We looked at the 6-inch version last week, so today we'll look at the new Mission Series 2015 Han Solo (Hoth) action figure, hitting pegs and online shelves now. It comes with Luke and for the asking price, it's amazing. However you'll immediately lament the loss of trapdoor Tauntaun toys, and hopefully Hasbro will consider making a new one for us - because, let's be honest, that'd be pretty awesome. Read on!
Today, let's look at Luke Skywalker (Stormtrooper Disguise) in Figure of the Day! This one looks better in person than in the close-up shots as the head goes, but he’s normal Stormtrooper height with a helmet that’s a smidge too tight. Want to know more? Read on!
Hey kids, it's Hera Syndulla! This green, orange, and brown figure looks like it might fit right in with some of your existing pilots, plus she comes with a swell Stormtrooper Commander figure too. You don't have one, so get this one. Read on!
And now, back to Mission Series. This new Princess Leia is the first toy of this costume to be sold outside of a boxed set in nearly a decade, meaning she'll probably blow off the shelves in a hurry. Don't miss this one! Read on.
Today in Figure of the Day: the 6-inch Han Solo and Tauntaun! This is a great one. You should get one. It's a new sculpt across the board, and Han looks a lot like the just-releases Mission Series set too. Check it out, read on!
Behold, a new R2-D2! This one is packed with Yoda and sports a retractable arm in a door, plus he has better paint than the last Mission Series 2-pack release. They fixed his bald spot! Since you want to know more, read on.
These 2-packs are great! The new Yoda has separately jointed legs, a cane, and a lamp. We don't get many new The Empire Strikes Back Yodas, and now we've got three in the last year! This one comes with R2-D2. Read on!
The new TIE Pilot came out single-carded last month, and I just got a box in the mail yesterday with it repacked in a 2-pack with a Stormtrooper. (Smart move, Hasbro!) This means you can get this figure - it also means we've got another 2-3 weeks of FOTD ahead of us, so strap in and read on!
Check out Commander Bly, the odd man out in the Endor wave of Saga Legends. He doesn't have the brown stripe, he doesn't have a round peg on his binoculars, but he is pretty cheap - so why not read this review?
