It's new, and exclusive!  The Spider Assassin Droid comes in a new Toys R Us exclusive set with two clones-- and isn't a bad little robot.  (Well, OK, he's evil but it's a good toy.)  Should you go run and get one? Read on!

In the comics, ARC Trooper Alpha-17 was usually blue.  OK, pretty much 100% blue.  There was a more Episode III-esque redesign, but for some reason we got a red one in an Evolutions set a few years back.  Is it worth a look?  Read on!

Hey kids, it's Lieutenant Thire!  There are two similar-enough versions of this figure and you probably will want to get at least one of them.  Why not?  He's from a great episode.  Read on!

It's a new Even Piell, the first all-new sculpt for the character in quite some time!  (Almost 10 years!)  This short figure has a nifty climbing backpack and a head sculpt that feels like it's a little fragile.  Read on!

Hasbro sure likes Captain Rex, and this brand-new version is based on the newer sculpt, has a couple of jet packs, and ball-jointed hips-- plus a cloth "skirt.'  Is it worth the upgrade?  Read on!

It's a Tactical Droid!  This TA-175 turned out great and comes with a tank-- which, even at $20, makes him cheaper than the individually carded Tactical Droid from 2010.  Should you get him?  Read on!

It's another Geonosian Drone!  Hasbro made a bunch of these out of one basic mold, and it's a good thing-- they all turned out pretty well!  Read on!

It's Lando Calrissian and this is the third modern attempt to sculpt the Rebel hero, but only the first with a cloth cape.  The original in the 1980s got it right, but how does this one stack up against its modern siblings?

I hope you love Republic Commando figures like this Omega Squad Sniper, an exclusive that you can't easily get any more. Well, unless you count eBay.  Does this figure know where the blacktion is, or is it just another repaint?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,640

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 27, 2011

It's Aurra Sing, cartoon style!  Since the new movie one isn't ready yet, this is currently the best version of the character you can buy as a toy.  Heck, it might be still next year-- we'll have to wait and see.  Read on!

Since 2009, Cad Bane has been given at least 4 different action figures, including this one in a fallen Clone's armor.  I like it a lot-- he has a few neat features, a Holocron, and a head without the cyber-cheek implants.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,638

This Chewbacca has a good amount of gear, a great sculpt, and is friggin' Chewie.  On the other hand, the face paint could be better-- you should still look this one up, though.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,637

She's new-- and still a little hard to find! Darth Phobos comes from the Wii/PS2 version of The Force Unleashed, and she could be better. Nice sculpt, good accessory, iffy deco.  Read on!

Another Clone Trooper from those exclusive sets from 2005! The damage is unique, the mold, not so much.  Want to know more?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,635

I just couldn't believe it when Hasbro actually made L8-L9.  An obscure background character from a short cartoon, with tons of joints and a great paint job? Amazing!  I love this one.  Read on!
