Figure of the Day

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,193: Reistance Trooper (Space, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, September 14, 2015

Today in Figure of the Day, Reistance Trooper!  We don't know much about him yet, but we know he has a neat helmet and can sit in vehicles. Also, we assume it's a him.   It could just be a clever disguise.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,192: Poe Dameron (Pilot / Space, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, September 11, 2015

In his pilot outfit, this Poe Dameron figure includes what basically amounts to wings - he's not bad! The helmet isn't removable, but he has a holster for his blaster.  It's not a bad one.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,191: Rey (Snow, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 10, 2015

And now we look at Rey (last name withheld) because we can.  This is the single-carded figure that comes with the gun kickboard.   How did she turn out?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,190: Finn (Desert, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, September 9, 2015

While most figures are sold out in my neck of the woods, if you're lucky enough to stumble on new The Force Awakens action figures you're likely to find Finn.  He's one of the new major players in the movie, and like the rest we really don't know all that much about why he's there or what he's going to be doing.  It's a decent looking action figure, though.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,189: First Order Stormtrooper (Snow/Giant Rifle, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 8, 2015

The first First Order Stormtrooper has a big gun - other versions are coming, but the figures are generally the same.  This one comes with a giant Nerf-like gun, and I quite like it.   Will you?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,188: First Order TIE Fighter Pilot (Space, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, September 7, 2015

The First Order TIE Fighter Pilot looks a heck of a lot like the Imperial TIE Fighter Pilot - same basic colors, same basic layout.  It's less bulky, though, and other differences make this one an interesting take on the figure we've all crammed in vehicles since the first one in 1982.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,187: Luke Skywalker (Bespin / Jungle, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, September 6, 2015

They can't all be winners, but this figure is crucial if you want to assemble the Jungle cluster of "Combine Weapons."   The Luke Skywalker (Bespin / Jungle, The Force Awakens) is a perfectly nice figure, but a) you probably own it, and b) the backpack isn't enough to make the new, added backpack hole very interesting.  It may also amuse you to know that the backpack has more joints than the action figure.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,186: Captain Phasma (Buzzsaw, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, September 5, 2015

While same figure/different weapons are popping up, so far there's only one 3 3/4-inch Captain Phasma.   There's also a 6-inch one - but that's hard to find so far.  She's tall, she's silver, but - surprisingly - only her chest is painted. The limbs and head are molded in a silvery plastic.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,185: Kylo Ren (Jungle/Claw, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 3, 2015

We still haven't seen everything - but there are many Kylo Ren action figures.  Variant accessories may be a thing now, so keep your peepers peeled.  This one has a bear trap of sorts, but the figure itself has a great sculpt, good deco, and stands up just fine.  It's eight bucks, and you can order it at Entertainment Earth or elsewhere.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,184: R4-D23 (D23 Exclusive)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 3, 2015

Hey, it's R4-D23 (D23 Exclusive)!  And tomorrow is Force Friday, but you knew that.  This one was sold at the Disney show recently, and it's pretty nifty - you don't have one like this.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,183: R2-D2 (Holographic)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, September 2, 2015

From the Star Wars Weekends comes this newish R2-D2 (Holographic) action figure.  It's clear blue, unpainted, and uses the newer Disney droid tooling.  Should you snag one?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,182: R2-D60 (Disneyland Exclusive)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 1, 2015

Hey kids, while we wait for Friday let's look at some other toys you have have missed.  The R2-D60 figure was sold as part of Disneyland's 60th Birthday and isn't too expensive if you  have to turn to the secondary market.  Get while the getting is good.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,176: R5-Series Astromech Droid Black with Silver and Orange

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, August 25, 2015

Today in Figure of the Day - before a brief hiatus so I can get some other things in order so we can hopefully all have a fun September - is R5-Series Astromech Droid Black with Silver and Orange.  It's another Disney droid, and potentially available at a theme park "near" you right now.   Is it worth it?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,180: Captain Rex (The Clone Wars - Yoda Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, August 21, 2015

Hey, remember those waves of figures in Yoda-themed packaging that never made it out in the USA?  Well, this Captain Rex is one of them - he has different deco than the 2012 release, plus added knee joints.   Is it worth tracking down this mostly European release?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,179: R2-Series Astromech Droid Grey and White

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, August 20, 2015

The R2-Series Astromech Droid Grey and White  from Disney's droid part bins look a lot like R2-Q2, an exclusive from 2006.  Since there may be more than one of it in the movie, is it different enough to be interesting - or the same enough to be the same?  Read on!
