By Adam Pawlus — Monday, April 23, 2012

New from The Clone Wars is the anticipated SCUBA Gear Ahsoka Tano, another in a long chain of hard-to-get figures of this character.  She looks great! But the articulation, not so great.   Read on!

So this is the new Darth Vader for 2012, which is actually a figure from 2002 with fewer accessories at twice the price.  Oh, and they took out the magnets.  He looks good, though, so is he worth the nine bucks? Read on!

Another day, another Mace Windu.  This one has a distinctive hoodless robe, and that's the main selling point here.  Read on!

Check out this Grievous Bodyguard figure from the ill-fated (and at the time, expensive) arena sets.  You'd get 2 underarticulated figures and a couple of bases for $20, when figures were about $5.50.  The free market has spoken! But check out more on this figure, just read on!

From rare and unreleased figure to indifference in weeks!  Clone Trooper Scythe was announced last year, and never really showed up!  Now he's here, and our polling shows you don't care.  You're fickle people, he's a cool figure.  Read on!

This is it! Finally!  An all-new Dr. Evazan is finally here to delight you, threaten you, or annoy you with his absence.  I just got mine last week, so now you get to read about him!  He turned out well, so read on!

It's the third release of swimming Kit Fisto in "realistic" style! This one was the best, because it came with a wire-filled cloak, a better paint job, and a cool astromech droid sidekick.  I hope you got yours!  Read on!

This General Grievous was from the wonderful but short-lived line of Walmart Droid Factory sets.  The cape is the unique feature of this one, but is it enough?  Read on!

The tough-to-spell Ratts Tyerell is in stores now, most likely.  While some noticed the initial wave is hanging (because it is), he'll probably dry up soon-- should you get him before he does?  I think so. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,780

While not called out on the front of the box, this ARF Trooper is basically Trapper from the really cool Geonosis story arc.  There were zombies and dirt, which I hear kids love.  Should you get him?  Does he look like Waxer and Boil?

It's interesting to see that this Battle Droid is getting another run, and is one of the oldest figures to get a redeco in the line's run. (First issue 1998, this issue 2012.)  So the STAP is quite different, but how about the figure?  Read on!

It's Hasbro, and it comes with a new Astromech droid, so Jedi Mickey oddly makes the cut for Figure of the Day.  Is it worth it? No. But you're bored at work so read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,777

Oola-la!  This super-articulated take on Jabba's ex-dancer and pet snack turned out quite well and has her costume rendered largely in soft goods, which is, to say the least, unusual.  Check her out!

Having debuted several weeks ago, I've seen Lando Calrissian out in the wild a few times now. As gear goes, he's fantastic. As coloring goes, he could use some sun.  Want to know more?  Read on!

The third time is the charm!  We got R2-B1 before in 2000 and 2007, but this is the one you'll want. This "newly" released hard-to-find Walmart exclusive started hitting big in the last week, so did you get yours? And should you?  Read on!
