Figure of the Day

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,940: See-Threepio (C-3PO, Droids, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, July 7, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: C-3PO (Droids, The Vintage Collection). It's an exclusive and it's got a coin! This figure is much shorter than the 1985 original, but the colors are excellent and he has removable panels... with some gaps you can see through at some angles. Obviously, I like it. Collect all 3! Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,939: Bo-Katan Kryze (The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 5, 2022

More fun from the 1980s... by way of 2022! Bo-Katan Kryze (The Retro Collection). It's a Kenner-style figure that is a lot of fun to fuss with. She has brighter colors than her other figures, but the Kenner-esque deco is a mixed bag - the helmet probably has too much fine detail while the breastplate armor is completely unpainted. I still dig it - she fits in great with your old 1970s and 1980s Kenner vehicles and playsets, which tends to be one of the very best reasons to buy these new releases.Obviously, I recommend them all.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,938: Boba Fett (Droids, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, June 30, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Boba Fett (Droids, The Vintage Collection). It's an exclusive and it's got a coin! It's nicely articulated and since the old 1980s Droids Boba Fett wasn't in cartoon colors, this is more than a little bit of a welcome addition to a tiny sub-line. Collect all 3! Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,937: The Armorer (The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, June 28, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: The Armorer (The Retro Collection). It's a Kenner-style figure with a sculpt that looks like it came out of 1983 and a furry cape that's clever, yet unlike anything I can point to from the original toy line. I really like these guys, but they're not for everybody - if you have a big actual vintage Kenner toy stash in your toy box, these are some of the best things I've bought in ages.  Plus she has a giant hammer for smashing Stormtrooper heads.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,936: ARC Trooper (Umbra Operative, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, June 23, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: ARC Trooper (Umbra Operative, The Vintage Collection). It's an exclusive and it's colored to match your Halloween stuff! Also the Battlefront II game. I like it. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,935: Boba Fett (Morak, The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, June 21, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Boba Fett (Morak, The Retro Collection). This is one of my favorite figures in years - it incorporates elements of the 1979 Kenner figure, like his unique backpack design, while also modernizing it with an all-new but still appropriately retro helmet sculpt and coloring. If you're in your 40s - or maybe late 30s - this could be a fun throwback to put with your other childhood toys. I don't know if younger fans will flock to this one, but it hasn't left my general workspace since getting it nearly a month ago. I'd strongly recommend it if Kenner toys were ever on your wish list as a child. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,934: Artoo-Deetoo (R2-D2, Droids, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, June 16, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Artoo-Deetoo (R2-D2, Droids, The Vintage Collection). It's a repaint of the 2010 movie figure, which captures the spirit of the 1985 original which was also a movie repaint. The chest panel doesn't close perfectly, but he has a coin, he looks cool, and you may find him in a Target right now. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,933: Ahsoka Tano (& Grogu, The Vintage Collection Deluxe)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, June 14, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Ahsoka Tano (& Grogu, The Vintage Collection Deluxe). It's a Walmart exclusive figure you just got, with lots of extra gear, and I'd say it's a better figure - get this one to open, skip opening the carded one. She has a poncho, critter pals, and other gear. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,932: Babu Frik (Droid Depot Redux 2022, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, June 9, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Babu Frik (Droid Depot Redux 2022, The Black Series 6-Inch). It's effectively the same as the 2019 Target exclusive release, with a little less pink - if you got one, you probably don't need the other. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,931: R2-W50 (Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, June 7, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: R2-W50 (Droid Factory). It's a figure painted to look sort of like the repaint of a castle at a theme park, except the droid is clear for some reason. It's a bizarre but distinctive looking figure, and arguably the kind of thing that's more interesting as a weird collectible toy than something from the Star Wars galaxy. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,930: K-7R1 (Droid Depot set, The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, June 2, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: K-7R1 (Droid Depot set, The Black Series). It's a repaint of K-2SO, from a theme park, at which it appears as a junk robot. It looks cool, at least. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,929: Anakin Skywalker (Outlander Peasant Disguise 2021 Redux, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, May 31, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Anakin Skywalker (Outlander Peasant Disguise 2021 Redux, The Vintage Collection). Time is not always kind to reissues - he came up a little short back in 2011, and by today's standards doesn't look great. The poncho is much worse, the figure deco is slightly better, and the sculpting is still as good as it ever was. It's not an essential upgrade, but there are a few improvements that may interest you (as long as you keep the original 2011 poncho handy.) Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,928: Obi-Wan Kenobi (2022 Redux, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, May 26, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Obi-Wan Kenobi (2022 Redux, The Vintage Collection). It's a repaint of a fairly old figure, and it arguably looks a little better - but, again, it is a figure from 2011. The belt has a place to hang his communicator and his lightsaber is cool, but should you track one down online? Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,927: Ahsoka Tano (Corvus, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, May 24, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Ahsoka Tano (Corvus, The Vintage Collection). She's awesome! This is the mass-retail release, Walmart has an exclusive version. This figure has one of Hasbro's very best head sculpts, with amazing paint and tip-top articulation. Even if you're not an Ahsoka fan (and you should be one), I'd suggest getting this figure (or playing with a friend's) to see just how far Hasbro has come in making these figures truly amazing in recent waves. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,926: Death Watch Mandalorian (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, May 19, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Death Watch Mandalorian (The Vintage Collection). It's a new sculpt and one of Habsro's very best. The range of motion is great, the center of gravity is good, and the joints move pretty freely so you won't feel "stuck" in a weird position. You'll love it. Buy an army. Read on!
