By Adam Pawlus — Monday, August 1, 2011

It's the new General Grievous packaged with the new Attack Cycle!  It's similar to one that came out in 2010, but it's less likely to fall apart--a big, big plus.  So should you get one?  Read on!

It's Ree-Yees with a camera!  Just like you've always wanted, right?  This 1998 figure got another run in 2010 with the new accessory and four new friends.  Should you get the lot of them?  Read on!

Hasbro has no shortage of Darth Maul figures, and this one was particularly tough to get at first.  As one of the "Masters of the Dark Side," the set was quite scarce-- single figures came out later, and now it's cheap enough for you to get easily.  Should you?  Read on!

It's IG97, the "killer" robot.  Based on the newest Battle Droid chassis, the figure has loads of articulation, a good amount of gear, and a comic-accurate head to boot.  You'll want this one-- assuming you can still find it, which is entirely possible.  Read on!

Science fact: fans love Natalie Portman.  So it's no surprise we eventually would get more toys of her, like this Padme Amidala in a black gown thing from 2007.  She can't sit, but hey, she can stand!  Find out if she's a must-have, and read on.

He's small and fishy.  Robonino was one of those figures fans started asking for, subsequently got, and didn't really buy.  His Target-exclusive gift set is still available nearly 9 months after its introduction, which is a shame, as it's a nice set that should sell through. Should you get one?  Read on!

With all the news you probably won't read about poor R2-Q5, an RC update of the Return of the Jedi-themed droid.  Feel like reading anyway?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,591

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, July 21, 2011

It's another Battle Droid!  This one's from Battlefront II and has limited articulation.  The deco and giant gun make up for this, more or less, so read on!

It's the Riot Control Clone Trooper!  Part of the most recent wave of The Clone Wars figures, it's a good mix of new and old parts.  Should you go buy two?  Probably.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,590

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 19, 2011

It's Darth Vader!  Or it's Anakin Skywalker-- Hasbro changed the name early in the run, so you can buy it with either name on the packaging.  Is it any good?  You'll just have to read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,589

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, July 18, 2011

It's a Clone Pilot!  This is the one that comes with the brand-new Y-Wing Scout Bomber, and has more than a passing resemblance to Warthog. With ball-jointed hips and great helmet deco, it's a nice figure-- but is it worth buying with the vehicle?  Read on!

If you like grey hair on your space warriors, get a look at Sinker here.  He has the same colors as most of Plo Koon's troopers from the first season, plus a unique head design and a removable helmet.  I hope you got one, as they're long gone now.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,587

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, July 14, 2011

A slightly different version!  This is a slightly redecorated version of Obi-Wan Kenobi as a spirit, as released in 2007.  Any good?  Sure!  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,586

While his articulation wasn't perfect, Hasbro did design their first Revenge of the Sith Clone Pilot to be able to sit and fit inside pretty much all the vehicles-- so it's a good toy, but didn't meet the growing standards of collectors.  I think it's great-- but will you?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,585

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 12, 2011

Repainted about three times inside 2 years, this Anakin Skywalker was the last and arguably best take on the mold.  With a swinging arm action and a clone buddy, he was a pretty nifty release-- but do you need him for your collection?  Read on!
