Check it out - it's Chubbray!  He/she is a new Ewok from the Kmart Ewok Assault Catapult, possibly at a store near you as you read this.  Click here to read all about it!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,038: Imperial Officer (Death Star Scanning Crew)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, October 18, 2013

Let's put a stake through the heart of this week with the Imperial Officer (Death Star Scanning Crew), which finishes up our look at Kmart's new Scanning exclusives.  Next week: Ewoks.  But for now, check out this black-suited villain with fleshy gloves and a swell hat.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,037: Imperial Technician (Death Star Scanning Crew)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 17, 2013

OK, so today we're looking at the new-for-2013 Imperial Technician (Death Star Scanning Crew).  It looks a lot like the 2009 figure, with some deco changes - and since it's a trooper, a slight difference is enough for me to qualify this as a new figure worth your while.  I am easy.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,036: Imperial Technician (Imperial Scanning Crew)

There are two of them! Today it's the Imperial Technician (Imperial Scanning Crew), or to the layman, "this is the one with the new head and missing parts."  You'll want this one - he's loaded with new gear and a head that's a tad too small.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,035: TK-421 (Stormtrooper)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 15, 2013

We're back for a bit! Figure of the Day returns - but not every day - to show you TK-421, a new Stormtrooper that you might find at your local Kmart if they haven't already closed up.  Would you believe Hasbro made it interesting?  Well, they did.   Check it out - read on! 

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,034

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, April 1, 2013

So it's come to this!  Let's wrap things up by looking at BoShek, which may well have been one of the first figures more or less born out of a gag on the internet.  Mutton chops and angry column writers came together over 10 years ago to bring you this, one of the last figures in what was basically Kenner's house style of the 1990s.  The construction is pretty good, but while a lot of people really did want Wuher, well, yeah.  Sometimes you get what you ask for.

It's Willrow Hood, or the Ice Cream Maker Guy.  Thanks to years of fan petitions serious and sarcastic, this extra from The Empire Strikes Back received his day in plastic courtesy of the awareness fans can generate when they work as a large, vocal group.  Do you want to know more about this one?

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,032

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 28, 2013

Today, let's look at last year's Yellow R7-Series Astromech Droid.  It's actually pretty swell!  I like the nacho orangeness of it.  The bad news is that it's yet another figure that will be (potentially) prohibitively difficult for you to find.  Is it worth the effort?

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,031

This Yoda is in stores right now, and comes with a pretty swell little Jedi Attack Fighter vehicle.  It's a bizarre figure with strange eyes and a fairly nice sculpt.  The whole gift set is actually quite nice, so I'd say go ahead and buy it.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,030

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 26, 2013

Hey kids, it's the 2006 Republic Commando Boss figure!  This was his first of (so far) three toys.  As such, the articulation is the most limited but it's worth noting that the deco is pretty great.  Want to know more? 

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,029

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, March 25, 2013

As the most recent Attack of the Clones Obi-Wan Kenobi to be put back in circulation, you'll be glad to know this one is very OK.  It's not a great fit for the 2013 Jedi Starfighter, but as a figure that can stand around this 2012 release isn't half bad.  How does this 2003 mold ten years later? 

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,028

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, March 22, 2013

Does this Biker Scout having different grey dirt splotches make him different? Sure, why not.  It's from a really great 2007 gift set that at the time was one of the greatest bargains the line had to offer.  And today?  Well, it's cheaper than it was a couple of years ago. 

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,027

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 21, 2013

Let's look at Rebel Pilot Tiree, a still-available exclusive from the original Star Wars  movie!  Sure, he has the wrong torso, but that's the rule rather than the exception lately.  Should you run out to the Toys R Us to get one? 

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,026

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, March 20, 2013

I really like this Battle Droid, in part because the blue-bedecked "pilots" are far and few between.  We got one about 13 years ago with another swell mini-rig-ish vehicle, and then... uh... I think this might be it, actually.   It's based on the 2012 MTT droid mold, which isn't at all bad.  I'm not saying it's exceptional, but I am saying I like it enough to wish I had more.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,025

Check out this AT-ST Gunner from the Kmart AT-ST Drivers pack last year! It's pretty good.  For the price, I'd say it's quite the deal... particularly if you have one of the earlier AT-ST vehicles which doesn't collapse under its own weight like the 2012 release.
