Figure of the Day

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,514

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, April 4, 2011

There weren't a lot of movie-authentic options for Darth Maul.  You can have his robes on, or off.. and if they're on, you can have the hood up if you want.  This one came with a Sith Attack Speeder vehicle which was a neat Mini-Rigs concept.  Should you get the figure?  Read on!

I define Leesub Sirln as "too obscure."  Why?  In the 1990s when she got a trading card made of her, everybody I asked told me they were pretty sure it was an airbrushed original design created just for Decipher's Premiere Edition of the Customizable Card Game.  What say you?  Read on!

Hey, another Clone Trooper!  This one has a removable helmet and 501st-esque detailing, and was sold in the Previews (and later Toys "R" Us) exclusive Battlefront II gift packs.  Those are pretty nice sets-- but how is this figure?  Read on!

So it's come to this, another Emperor Palpatine repaint.  This one came in the Crimson Empire boxed set with Royal Guard trainees and Darth Vader-- maybe you bought it, maybe you didn't.  Should you?  Read on!

It's Clone Trooper Jesse, a sort of a new mold as figures go.  It's the new, Stone-style body but it has ball-jointed hips-- a first for this particular Clone mold.  This puts him up there with ARF Troopers, but is it good enough to rebuy a BARC Speeder?  Read on!

Meet R7-P7, the droid of Jedi Padawan Ahsoka Tano.  It's brightly colored and a great sculpt.  Do you need it?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,508

I can usually find some good in most figures, but this Luke Skywalker is easily one of Hasbro's all-time worst.  And this isn't just Star Wars, but their entire plastic output.  Just look at the inset of Luke's head-- you know this is going to suck, so read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,507

Most likely available at a Toys "R" Us near you still, this Nikto Guard was originally supposed to come in a Battle Pack.  Now, well, you can get him by himself if you want.  Is it worth it?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,506

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, March 23, 2011

It's another Battle Droid! Hasbro cranked out so many different versions of this character that you could build an army without buying a single duplicate.  This red version came out during the coinful batch of Saga Legends... should you get it?  Scientists weigh in today, so read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,505

For years, fans have been wondering when Hasbro would give us Jodo Kast, and when we finally got one in 2008, we wanted to know when we'd get a good one.  Well, here it is!  The Kmart exclusive figure has a removable helmet and a nice paint job.  Should you get one?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,504

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, March 21, 2011

If you love ARC Trooper figures, this one is worth picking up because it's rare that we get "Phase II"-inspired ARC Troopers.  This particular one has a lot of blue and seems inspired by a number of different figures.  Want to know more?  Sure you do.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,503

While the character has had a rich history in comic books, Quinlan Vos has only appeared in one episode of The Clone Wars, and Hasbro thought that was enough to crank out a figure.  (I'm happy for this.) The figure has a lightsaber, and a speederboard for some reason.  Should you grab him?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,502

Hasbro has made thousands of 3 3/4-inch scale action figures, but few are as large as Kul Teska.  He looks more like an average big Spider-Man figure, towering over even Darth Vader!  He doesn't have a lot of gear, but he's huge and cool... and isn't that worth something?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,501

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, March 16, 2011

The just-released and as far as I can tell, barely in stores Aqua Droid is an odd duck.  It's an amazing piece of toy engineering, but it can't stand up-- not even with its stand-- for more than a few hours. Gravity, thou art a heartless... nevermind.  Anyway, should you get it?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,500

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 15, 2011

Wow, it's Figure of the Day #1500!  What a milestone!  To celebrate, we're going to look at a fun figure from 2010-- Pre Vizsla, the Mandalorian with the most gear. His helmet comes off, his articulation is exceptional, and really, you should buy him.  Read on!
