Figure of the Day

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,224: Unkar's Thug (The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 27, 2015

Unkar's Thug is here!  He's masked, he has a swell vest, and he's a normal height for an action figure.  But what is under the mask? That, I don't know.  Speculate wildly, or read this review.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,223: R2-D2 (The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, October 26, 2015

For The Force Awakens, Hasbro outfitted R2-D2 with a completely new harness that features energy blasters.  For those of us who have been waiting 19 years for the cryptotoyological toy to show up, here's one!  The R2-D2 itself is similar to the Mission Series release from a while back, but the shade of blue is different.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,222: Jakku Scavenger (Teedo, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, October 23, 2015

The Jakku Scavenger actually has a name - it's Teedo, and it's on the back of the box.  This little guy comes with Unkar's Thug and BB-8, making up one of the best figure set values in the current toy line.   Did you get yours?  Get looking for one, or order it online.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,221: C-3PO (The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 22, 2015

Today, let's look at a new C-3PO!  This one comes with R2-D2, and he's got more than a red arm and two gold legs.  The torso has been resculpted a bit, and you'll find a few other tweaks between him and the similar Mission Series version from a couple of years ago.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,220: BB-8 (The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, October 21, 2015

There is another!  And apparently, there's a variant.   My BB-8 was packed with a Thug and a Scavenger, plus it even has a hole in the base for stands - and I'm told not everybody's does.   Functionally he's the same as the Millennium Falcon BB-8, which has been voted "Most Likely to be Stolen" by Entitled Collector Magazine for the month of October.  

However, the sculpt is different and the deco has been changed too - he's cleaner, whiter, and has different panels.   Want to see more?  Sure you do - read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,219: Darth Vader (Rebels, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 20, 2015

Straight from Star Wars Rebels, it's Darth Vader!  This one takes cues from some concept designs, being a good translation of his appearance on the cartoon.  It comes with Ahsoka, and you're probably fretting over the fact you don't have one yet.  You should get one.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,218: Guavian Enforcer (The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, October 19, 2015

It's new!  The 3 3/4-inch Guavian Enforcer showed up and boy howdy do I love this target-faced goon.  I may never be able to prove that he's paid product placement for the big red dot, but I can prove that it has cool armor and a very shootable face.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,217: Chewbacca (The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, October 16, 2015

This retooled Chewbacca has a different head - and some other pieces - when compared to the Armor Up version.  Presumably more are coming, but this is the latest one right now.  It comes packaged with the Millennium Falcon and his claim to fame is the bulky communications gear.  How retro!  Is it any good?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,216: Finn (The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 15, 2015

Another Finn!  This one comes with the Millennium Falcon and sports unique communications equipment - so it's different.  He has a blaster, five points of articulation, and the same basic sculpt you've seen with a bunch of changes.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,215: Snowtrooper Officer (The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, October 14, 2015

The big 6-inch version of the First Order Snowtrooper Officer is out as an exclusive, but this is the 3 3/4-inch one.  It's nice!   It's also a different sculpt with different deco from the regular Snowtrooper, beyond just the shoulder pad - fascinating!  Read on.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,214: Finn (The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 13, 2015

The Jakku Landspeeder version of Finn is, surprisingly, quite different.  The head looks better, the leg pose is improved, and he can more easily fit in vehicles.  It's great!  If you're thinking about getting this one, you probably should.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,213: BB-8 (The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, October 12, 2015

There are two BB-8 action figures so far - this is the 3 3/4-inch one that comes with the Millennium Falcon.  It has some dirt on it, and one point of articulation. I assume it will be the most-stolen action figure of the year, but let's see how it shakes out.  I like the droid, I like the vehicle it comes in - will you?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,212: Kanan Jarrus (The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, October 9, 2015

From The Force Awakens toy line, Kanan Jarrus has a new hat!  Also new shoulder deco.  And a really cool Y-Wing Scout Bomber vehicle.   It's worth picking up for the vehicle, and the figure with its changes is a heck of a nice bonus.   If you already have several Kanans, though, buying another one is probably not going to do it for you.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,211: Stormtrooper Officer (The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 8, 2015

We don't know if this Stormtrooper Officer is in the movie yet, but we do know it comes with an armored, gun-packed Assault Walker vehicle.   It's similar to the carded Stormtroopers (all three of which I have seen in stores as of yesterday), but the plastic is a slightly different texture and shade of white - plus there are minor manufacturing differences.  Want to know more?  Let's say that you do.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,210: Special Edition Stormtrooper (The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, October 7, 2015

Based on the box, I'm pretty sure his name is the Special Edition Stormtrooper.   It's black, has knees, and a cool red stripe pattern on his chest.  He has a plug-in blaster and can more or less sit on his speeder bike.  Want to know more?  Read on!
