No really, the AT-DP Pilot is new, I swear! It looks just like the figure you bought a couple of years ago, but it's a different tool - the foot copyrights are different, the textures are different, he's a tiny bit shorter, and the deco and paint masks are changed a bit. The tint is different, too. It's packed with the just-released Imperial Speeder vehicle - a worthwhile purchase - but it's almost the very definition of a "just different enough to make you mad" figure. You might not even realize it's different without a side-by-side comparison, but don't worry - you've got one when you read on.
He's new! The 3 3/4-inch K-2SO (Rogue One) has a cool grappling hook accessory, but no blaster like his 6-inch counterpart. What does he have in the movie? I have no idea, I haven't seen it. But I have seen the figure, and the figure's ball-and-socket joints give him a good range of motion. And less stability. But he looks cool. Read on!
Hey, it's a new Imperial Stormtrooper! He has 5 points of articulation, blast-off armor, and one of the better sculpts we've seen in recent memory. The blaster is new and different, but the figure looks like a classic. Do you need to army-build this one? (Well, you would if there was a big playset to go with it.) Read on!
In the first teaser we briefly see what appears to be Jyn Erso wearing the Imperial Ground Crew outfit, and that's about all that we know about these guys. They look cool, and fit in with the existing Empire aesthetic. And they're in stores. Should you get one? Read on!
This Captain Cassian Andor comes with the new U-Wing Fighter, which may or may not be at a store near you - it would seem the Rogue One roll-out is something many retailers have almost started. The figure ain't bad, the ship is better than you might think, but it's not cheap - thanks, inflation. Want to know more? Read on!
Let's kick off this weekend - yes, we're gonna do a bunch of these - with the character whose last name is almost the German word for "first." The first release of 3 (or more) known 3 3/4-inch releases of our new Rebel hero is Sergeant Jyn Erso, now showing up carded with 7 points of articulation, a working holster, a movable breathing mask, and a non-removable helmet. And if you pull off her arms, you can see under the poncho. Don't do that. But you can see how it looks - just read on!
It's the Captain Phasma 3 3/4-inch super-articulated figure from Walmart? Have you found one yet? Probably not - usually the waves hit, but don't saturate for a few months. Vigilance! It pays off - it's a good figure if you can find one. Read on!
I'm seeing more of the Han Solo in his Starkiller base jacket around, but not a ton of it. This is a shame, because it's a great figure. There's fine printing on his blaster, exceptional articulation, and a pretty good head sculpt. Should you grab one before the Rogue One crowds start? Read on!
The only new Leia from the new movie, Princess Leia Organa was a Walmart exclusive that, despite very strange eyebrows, is otherwise not bad. Cloth bits, a decent sculpt, and better articulation than her outfit can make use of, if/when you find her she's the only game in town. Hopefully we'll see a General Resistance/Vest version next. Read on!
The First Order Stormtrooper was a pain to find last year when this 3 3/4-inch boxed figure debuted as a Walmart exclusive. It still is, but it was back then, too. He's got more joints and less gear than the other 3 3/4-inch releases, so is he worth it? Read on!
You might be seeing Rey from Walmart's exclusive The Black Series assortment as enough of the 3 3/4-inch figures shipped that she sat around in some areas. Of course now that people are looking again, she'll probably go away pretty fast. Should you go hunting? Read on!
We're back! Planes, and all. Today it's Finn (The Black Series 3 3/4-Inch), which is an awesome figure that looks a lot like the regular version you probably saw a bunch of already. Is it worth the upgrade? Yeeeeeahhhhhhh. Shell out, dudes. Read on!
