Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,746

Way back in 1995, this Han Solo may have been one of the first new figures you bought.  He was packed heavily, and tended to stick around.  We've had dozens of Han figures since then, so how does this one stack up?  Read on!

This Han Solo is one of the best Hoth figures!  He can't sit on a Tauntaun, but the goggles can be removed and he has a working holster.  Which, really, makes me happy.  Will you like it?  Read on!

While this new Movie Heroes Jar Jar Binks isn't perfect-- we already know a new one is coming after him-- it's still fun and a refreshing take on a character we haven't seen much of lately.  Should you get it?  Read on!

There are a lot of Wedge Antilles figures out there, and this one is-- in some respects-- one of the best.  It was packaged with an X-wing at Target a few years ago, and it's taller than the Vintage one which will be reissued shortly.

Another Clone Trooper!  New sculpts aren't too common, but this is a new one.  Is it great?  Does it need some work?  Read on, and vote in the new poll about the second wave of Star Wars Movie Heroes figures too!

My flight just landed, but I wrote up this Rum Sleg a while ago.  It's pretty awesome, and sadly is not part of the Episode I Redux going on right now.  It's a solid design, if a little weird, and feels very Star Wars-y despite

So, Clone Commander Jet.  I know what you want to read is commentary on Toy Fair, but, as a member of the toy industry, I'm in meetings and trying to figure out how to cram a pile of paperwork into a carry-on bag with my dirty socks.  I'll try to write something on the plane or as soon as I can get sme decent time to collect my notes.  This trooper was delayed, and features a unique accessory.

Look at this Pit Droid.  Just look at it.  It's a reissue, more or less, of the Episode I "exclusive" figure from Europe and Asia.  It's pretty good.  Read on!

Because you asked!  Aurra Sing is part of that frighteningly new Walmart exclusive wave of Discover the Force figures with awkward, sure-to-be-damaged 3D glasses hanging off the side.  I don't doubt she will be the most popular figure in the wave, with an antenna (finally!) and an awesome lightsaber suitcase.

This bright orange Bomb Squad Trooper comes from a new Battle Pack with 3 new Clones in it.  Naturally, it's the one that sells out first.  Should you chase him down?  Read on!

Another Geonosian Warrior?  Yup! You can build an army out of the different versions Hasbro made, including this 2-pack release from 2010.  Is this now-clearanced figure worth it?  Read on, and be sure to vote in the new FOTD poll!

This is the brand-new Anakin Skywalker figure that Hasbro just released in the last couple of weeks.  It looks a lot like the other ones, but it is indeed a brand-new, thinner sculpt with new accessories.  Do you need a lightsaber launcher?  Well, no, of course you don't.  But aren't you the slightest bit curious if it's any fun?  I am.

One good Tiin deserves another!  Saesee Tiin is based loosely on the animation model, plopping a new head on Obi-Wan Kenobi's body.  Is he worth tracking down?

Did you know Hasbro made an entire Jedi High Council collection complete with seats? It's true! Saesee Tiin was one of 18 figures spread over 2 years and 6 sets, but is he a good figure in his own right? Or should you buy it for the chairs?  Read on!

This Nute Gunray figure from 2003 was Hasbro's last to date, and it reuses bits and pieces from the 1999 original.  Is he worth grabbing?  Read on!
