Figure of the Day

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,069: Clone Commander Cody (Saga Legends 2013)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 26, 2013

NEW! This Clone Commander Cody is a Saga Legends release you may see in stores soon, or you'll need to order it online.  His backpack is removable, and his antenna is bent - but you can fix it.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,068: Captain Rex (Saga Legends 2013)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, December 25, 2013

Hey hey, it's the first-ever, brand-new, movie-style Captain Rex!  This Saga Legends figure is pretty new and I haven't seen it in stores yet - it's good, I think you'll like it.  The deco ain't bad and the holsters work, so I'm pretty pleased with this one.  Read on!

UPDATE: Links fixed! Click here to see it.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,067: Stormtrooper (Saga Legends 2013)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 24, 2013

NEW! This is Hasbro's first completely new Stormtrooper action figure in years - the bulk of the Sandtroopers and Stormtroopers you've seen have been derived from parts originally designed in 2004 or 2005, with few exceptions. This all-new figure has 5 joints and is beautiful.  You should all be furious that you can't go buy a dozen of them - I just want to get a few more myself!   Anyway, read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,066: Boba Fett (Saga Legends 2013)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, December 23, 2013

From that lovely Lava Line Look, it's a new Boba Fett from Saga Legends!  It's not bad.  Some of you won't like it because it's under-articulated, but it's not like you can buy it at a store near you anyway.  Is it worth it?  I think so.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,065: Clone Captain Deviss (Battle of Geonosis: Jedi Knights)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 26, 2013

I can tell you're excited - we're going to round out Toys R Us' latest exclusives (and take a break) with Clone Captain Deviss, a redeco of a figure that was a redeco of another figure.  He has a name now!  How about that?  Should you care?  Read on

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,064: Selig Kenjenn (Battle of Geonosis: Jedi Knights)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, November 25, 2013

Available at a Toys R Us near you right now, Selig Kenjenn (not Zelig, I don't think) is shown being at the Battle of Geonosis.  Except he wasn't there - the character is based on a piece of art depicting Holocron-keeper Leland Chee as a Jedi, which had TIE Fighters in the background.  As such, it's less an essential movie collectible than it is a bizarrely neat trivia question for people like you and me who live and breathe this stuff.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,063: Khaat Qiyn (Battle of Geonosis: Jedi Knights)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, November 22, 2013

While she looks a little more like Han & Leia's kid than the actress in the movie, Khaat Qiyn is largely pretty neat.  Sure, she has a giant mitt, but Que-Mars' other hand had to go somewhere.  Want to know more?  Read on

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,062: Que-Mars Redath (Battle of Geonosis: Jedi Knights)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 21, 2013

While it's not uncommon for a figure to have a minor error or two, Que-Mars Redath received two of them - and they're pretty interesting ones, at that.  This isn't the first Weequay Jedi, nor do we anticipate it to be the last.  It is, however, the first figure in the last set we're going to be looking at this week so go ahead and read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,061: TC-70 (2013 Legacy Collection Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, November 20, 2013

Check out the movie version of TC-70, Jabba's protocol droid from The Clone Wars movie.  It's pretty nice - it's also the build-a-droid from Amazon's exclusive Legacy 6-pack.  Should you get it?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,060: 212th Battalion Clone Trooper (2013 Legacy Collection Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 19, 2013

I know what you're thinking  - didn't you buy a Vintage 212th Battalion Clone Trooper just about two years ago?  Yes, but this one is just different enough to make you mad!  New damage markings and slightly different orange patterning await you on this exclusive Droid Factory figure which now uses the 2011 Vintage Clone body, which the previous version did not.  Read on

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,059: Sun Fac (2013 Legacy Collection Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, November 18, 2013

Did you know you needed another Sun Fac? Neither did I.  This Amazon-exclusive 2013 release is a redeco of the 2006 pegwarmer original, which would surely have poisoned the pegs.  As such, we're all happy to see it online.  It has fewer accessories than the original, lacks the eye scar, and has slightly different deco.  Is the new release worth it?  Read on! 

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,058: Black Squad TIE Pilot (2013 Legacy Collection Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, November 15, 2013

What's new with the Black Squad TIE Pilot, Amazon's exclusive Droid Factory figure? Not much.  The highlights are the inclusion of the rectangular gun which recalls the Kenner original, and the fact that the figure has not two, but one Imperial logo on his helmet.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,057: Battle Droid (2013 Legacy Collection Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 14, 2013

Did we need another Battle Droid, even if it's based on the exceptional Vintage design from 2012?  Probably not - the figure, despite being cool, has proven unpopular in its various toy forms.  Amazon's exclusive version includes a TC-70 part, which makes it much more essential for your toy box.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,056: FA-4 (2013 Legacy Collection Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, November 13, 2013

Let's look at FA-4, the sole newly-tooled figure in Amazon's Legacy/Droid Factory boxed set.  I'm pleased to report that it's pretty great - expensive, sure, but such is life these days for the Star Wars collector.  Want to know more?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,055: Sandtrooper (2013 Legacy Collection Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 12, 2013

If this Amazon-exclusive Droid Factory Sandtrooper looks vaguely familiar, it should - Hasbro dusted off the really cool 2012 release, changed the pauldron, altered the mud, and gave him a droid part.  And presto! New figure.  At retail odds are you'd be swarming to get this, but as part of an online exclusive set with no real cohesion, it's probably going to be collector-only.  Ah well! You're missing out.  Read on!
