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!

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!

It's Clone Trooper Kix, one of very few Clone medics in the entire line. There are hundreds of these things, but doctors?  Like one.  What are they, disposable?  Oh yeah, right. Hm. Anyway, go check him out!

Check out Clone Commander Cody in his Phase II armor.  It's good-- new helmet, new sculpt, and a pain-in-the-neck backpack peg await you on this newish figure. Go get one, won't you?  Read on!

It's Qui-Gon Jinn with Kenner-esque shoulder and hip joints, the best head sculpt ever, and a light-up lightsaber.  How oddly delightful!  Should you get one?  I think so.  Read on!

From a semi-recent Battle Pack, Colonel Dyer is, for all intents and purposes, our best update of the Kenner Imperial Officer figure. Black uniform, gloves, and a blaster... he's our guy!  So is the set worth your while? (Yes.) Read on!

This Battle Droid is the first release of the new 2012 Movie Heroes line-- the second is red.  So this is just different to make you mad, particularly because it's from a cheap 2-pack mold at $9.  So should you get it? No, but read on!

This Jedi Padawan is a sort of nameless extra from a recent Star Tours set.  Not specifically from the movies or ride, he looks like he's based on an actual person but nobody really knows who it is.  Do you?  I don't.  Anyway, read on!

Love orange?  Have another Clone Trooper.  This one came in a Battle Pack and is slightly different from other almost identical figures.  Read on!

This Imperial EVO Trooper was one of many different versions released by Hasbro since 2008.  Do you want a little dirt? You can get that. This is one of the cleaner versions and came out last year-- it's also my favorite, so read on!

As one of the notorious pegwarmers of 1999 (and beyond), it was surprising that Hasbro gave Ric Olie another go. The first one was pretty good, but is this one better?  Read on!

The Spacetrooper was one of the first Expanded Universe put out by Kenner in the final days of that brand in 1998, and it was a good figure. This one is also good, but is it good enough to re-buy? Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,764

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, March 19, 2012

This Darth Maul is one of the new, different-sorta-but-not-too-different Movie Heroes from this year.  It's based on a 2002 figure, minus magnets and some red paint.  Is it worth it?  Read on!
