The year's not over yet!  If you're still sober and not arguing over ridiculousness on Twitter, read the last Figure of the Day for 2010, the Storm Commando!  It's a lot like the Scout Trooper, but there's a new helmet and some other tweaks. Read on!

While you're at Wal-Mart looking for Jabba, you might see Matchstick in some of their exclusive DVD figure 2-packs.  It's a good figure with a distinctive design, so it wouldn't kill you to pick him up to pilot your vehicles.  Or would it?  (It wouldn't.)  Read on!

Oh, I do love the Jawa action figures.  This guy is part of a 2-pack of great cartoon-style figures, one of too few aliens to appear in the TV-focused action figure line.  And it's still cheap, too!  Is it worth grabbing?  Read on!

As we wrap up 2010, let's look at one of the first figures from 2000-- it's the very first R2-B1!  Made with a chrome dome and only two legs, this figure wasn't exactly a step forward but it sure was colorful.  Is it worth snagging?  Read on!

Oh, what a difference ten years makes.  There was a time where Han Solo (Stormtrooper Disguise) was an unbelievably big deal-- first as a mail-in, than as this store exclusive.  Today?  Worthless.   It's still a nice figure though-- read on!

Is this Darth Maul the best so far?  Maybe!  It's certainly the best at sitting, and it's easily the best toy one so far.  There's still room for improvement, but this 1999 release is so good, Hasbro still has it in circulation today.  Read on!

If you like black repaints, and evidence says you do, this Omega Squad Commando figure is just the thing for you.  Based largely on the Boss design, he's black now... with no real color other than some silvers and greys.  Fancy!  Need it?  Yes.  Read on!

One of the most iconic aliens in the entire Star Wars saga are the Cantina Band musicians, which surprisingly didn't see plastic for the first time until 1997. Also surprising: the 2007 version of the character is the 1997 one with new paint. Is it any better?  Read on!

Hey, it's a Bonus Pit Droid!  Back in 2001, these thinks were basically the bigfoot of action figures-- you've never seen them, and you never will.  In 2007, Hasbro reissued them and now you can get them cheap-- that's life!   So is it worth getting these legends?  Read on!

Hey kids, it's BG-J38, another one of Jabba's gambling companions!  Basically.  This Return of the Jedi robot was rarely seen in the movie, and also rarely seen at retail.  Is it worth putting one together?  Read on!

Just how many different Battle Droid figures can Hasbro give us?  TONS.   This one uses the new body mold, but paints it differently giving you yet another unique configuration of the ubiquitous robots.   Any good?  Yes.  Read on!
