Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,711

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, January 4, 2012

It was late, but Clone Trooper Buzz finally started appearing at Wal-Mart late last year. (A couple of DVD 2-packs are still missing.) This green figure ain't bad-- but should you go  buy him?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,710

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, January 3, 2012

It's another Han Solo!  This unfrozen version was sold at Toys R Us a few years ago, and it's a mishmash of some of the better figures from the time.  Is it worth it?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,709

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, January 2, 2012

It's the mail-in Prototype Boba Fett!  It's loosely based on the original costume made by Lucas' camp, with some changes because Hasbro had to work within the confines of an existing mold.  Is it worth the seven bucks?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,708

Oh Todo 360. We first heard about him from an early figure listing which didn't come to include him-- but we got him later, and he's pretty cool. (Only his head moves, though.)  Should you bring the Seth Green robot home? Read on!

Another Geonosian Warrior came out with the new version of Delta Squad, which may be in stock at a Toys R Us near you. Go buy it.  But is this figure worth it?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,706

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, December 28, 2011

Today let's look at the animated incarnation of Ki-Adi-Mundi, a Jedi with a pretty surprisingly large amount of action figures behind him.  Is this incarnation worth it?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,704

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, December 26, 2011

This is the Yoda which was delayed from 2010.  It's... well, it has a lot of articulation, but is it worth ten friggin' bucks?  Probably not, but read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,703

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, December 23, 2011

It's R2-D2, the way you always wanted him... as a reindeer.  This 2002 exclusive was in short supply, but thanks to the collective short attention span of modern collectors he's cheap again!  Rejoice, and read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,702

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 22, 2011

This 2009 Han Solo gave us the figure with a stormtrooper belt, helmet, and armor for some reason.  Well, it's still a decent figure, but getting his head right seems to be dang near impossible.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,701

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, December 21, 2011

He's green now! The second attempt on R2-X2 seems to be the "official" one thanks to some bunghole suggesting the 2006 release be black. Ah well. Whose fault do you think that was? I sure don't know.  Anyway, read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,700

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 20, 2011

Welcome to day 1,700 of Adam Held Hostage with Lumiya, a figure I assumed would never, ever see plastic.  I'm thrilled she exists, but did the Marvel villain turn out acceptably?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,699

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, December 19, 2011

Ahhh the Battle Droid Commander.  The token repaint of a decent mold, this guy also includes binoculars which make it just a little more different.  Should you get one for your tanks?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,698

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, December 16, 2011

From 1999, or "thousands of years ago," this Darth Maul had saber-swinging action before it was cool.  Or retro.  Or whatever.  Is it worth picking up, now that it's super-cheap?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,697

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 15, 2011

I love Jawa figures.  For a while, Hasbro put out a new one almost every year-- this has since stopped, but it was a nice run to see new takes on the little guys with a companion droid.  This was the last one so far-- how was he?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,696

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, December 14, 2011

Behold, the very first and very angry Barriss Offee!  Portrayed on TV as a younger hero-in-training, the first Hasbro action figure is a stylized, seemingly fully adult woman.  Is this 2003 release worth a look?  Read on!
