Figure of the Day: Day 1,372

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 16, 2010

Hey kids, it's another Clone Trooper, this time based on the newer sculpt.   It's in the Bantha Squad, and it is a decent new version of the same (or similar) design we've come to love since 2002.  Read on!

Still available in some towns, this Shadow Stormtrooper cast in clear plastic is an unusual creature in our favorite action figure line.  Rarely does Hasbro do Star Wars releases cast entirely in clear plastic, but here you go.  Is it worth it?   Read on!

It's orange!  This Clone Trooper has a jetpack and comes with several other swell figures.  Is this one different enough to add to your growing squad of citrus-flavored white-armored troopers?  Read on!

Figure of the Day: Day 1,369

Hey kids, it's another Clone Pilot.  This one is notable because it has a distinctive helmet which, so far, has not been used on any other figures.  Note the enclosed face but, aside from that, it's similar to the Revenge of the Sith helmets.  I like it.  Should you?  Read on!

What's big, green, and mean?  Not this guy.  But this Clone Trooper is green, and carries a mean gun.  Did you start building your army of this one yet?  If not, should you?  Read on!

Figure of the Day: Day 1,367

From the pages of the just-ended (but sort of continuing) Star Wars: Legacy comic books, Vax Potorr is a Stormtrooper that, in figure form, looks a lot like your other Stormtroopers.  This now basically sold-out item may be on shelves at certain stores near you, but online it's going away-- how is it?  Read on!

Figure of the Day: Day 1,366

Hey kids it's Machook from the Marvel comics!  There's no reason you should know who he is, but he was an exclusive and totally was worth getting.  You need lots and lots of Ewoks, after all.  Read on!

Figure of the Day: Day 1,365

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 7, 2010

This swell Firefighter Droid is an oddity-- it's a villain painted up to look like a real-life heroic figure.  (I have a lot of Playmobil firefighters, you see.)  The figure is also retooled slightly from previous animated Battle Droids. Is this Clone Wars bad guy a keeper?  Read on!

Figure of the Day: Day 1,364

Hey, what could be better than Princess Leia in some sexy dress she used to get a lizard man in the sack?  Anything, that's what!  (We kid.) But seriously, this figure didn't do too well in some markets and a lot of Shadows of the Empire fans already forgot she exists-- odd for a 2008 figure.  Should you grab her?  Read on!

Figure of the Day: Day 1,363

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, September 3, 2010

He looks alien, and he looks like he stepped out of a 1970s comic book.  He's Djas Puhr, alien bounty hunter!  The figure has way more detail than the original costume likely had, and has some nice hidden articulation to boot.  Is he worth the nothing he currently sells for?  Read on!

Figure of the Day: Day 1,362

There's still no Ziro the Hutt toy, but last year we did get a low run of Ziro's Assassin Droid! This repaint of IG-86 has great articulation and arguably the best paint job.  Should you get it?  Of course!  But read on anyway.

Figure of the Day: Day 1,361

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, September 1, 2010

And speaking of Bossk, here's the finest movie version of the bounty hunter from The Empire Strikes Back yet!  He's super-articulated, and the 2007 Vintage figure now exists as a budget-friendly Saga Legends release with a display stand and a bag of extra guns.  Does he hold up after oh so many years?  Read on!

Figure of the Day: Day 1,360

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, August 31, 2010

He's ancient, mean, and one of the first incarnations of Mandalore we've ever met!  He looks older and more old-tyme, but he's still quite cool.  Should you get him?  Obviously.  Read on!

Figure of the Day: Day 1,359

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, August 30, 2010

We look fondly back on many Star Wars figures, but this Hoth Rebel Trooper isn't one of them. The 2007 exclusive repaint was based on a figure which, when released in 2004, also stank.  So yeah... you don't need ot buy this one.  But read on anyway!

Figure of the Day: Day 1,358

If you can't get enough concept art toys, try this Snowtrooper on for size!  He has a cloth piece, a wacky silver gun, and a lot of detail that seems right out of 1979.  Is he worth your time?  Yes.  So read on!
