Figure of the Day

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,751: Jabba the Hutt (Barge pack-in, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 12, 2020

It took me forever to open my Sail  Barge, but inside it had Jabba the Hutt (Barge pack-in, The Vintage Collection) - which has mostly excellent paint. The eyes have some weird black lines, but the body and head are amazing with some of the best painted Jabba detail to date.  Not bad for a repaint of a Jabba from The Black Series Rancor Pit sit that you already forgot existed.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,750: Jango Fett (Gaming Greats, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 10, 2020

This is a good example of a reissue, with changes.  While the unmasked face is a tad on the glossy side, the deco and new backpack on Jango Fett (Gaming Greats, The Black Series 6-Inch) are improved.  It's closer to the first appearance in Attack of the Clones, but not perfect - and it's different enough from the previous release that I don't mind having it.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,749: Clone Trooper (Kamino, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 5, 2020

A new mold! You didn't ask for it, but instead of just a straight repaint the Clone Trooper (Kamino, The Black Series 6-Inch) is entirely new - and in some cases  better, and in some cases not.  The limbs no longer have visible pins, which is good - but the elbow and knee armor is a little strange now that it's a separate rubbery piece. The helmet is an actual helmet with a slug head underneath too, leading to some misshapen helmets.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,748: The Mandalorian (Beskar Armor, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 3, 2020

Complete with signet and jet pack, The Mandalorian (Beskar Armor, The Black Series 6-Inch) matches his look at the end of season one and, so far, the beginning of season two.   It's a retool of the first figure from 2019, but there's enough different that you're going to want one.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,747: Darth Vader (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, October 30, 2020

Sold in both 40th anniversary packaging and the new standard The Black Series boxes, Darth Vader (The Black Series 6-Inch) is partially new parts and partially old parts from a few years ago.  No respect, I swear.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,746: Heavy Battle Droid (Gaming Greats, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 29, 2020

If you like repaints with extra guns, this Heavy Battle Droid (Gaming Greats, The Black Series 6-Inch) is perfect.  Complete with Imperial and First Order tech, this uniquely painted Trade Federation trooper is just a little bit more interesting than your average droid. And as a GameStop exclusive, it's sold out unless they somehow find more in a bin somewhere. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,745: BB-Series Droid (BB-8-style droid, black and silver body, black and silver head)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, October 28, 2020

A mishmash of droid parts, the BB-Series Droid (BB-8-style droid, black and silver body, black and silver head) adds the black repaint you know you want in your stash. Presumably.  Black repaints of robots are a proud tradition and a sub-collection you'll find in many other toy lines, but are generally found overseas.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,744: BB-Series Droid (BB-9-style droid, red and silver body, white and red head)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 27, 2020

Now disappearing from Target is this exclusive BB-Series Droid (BB-9-style droid, red and silver body, white and red head) as part of a two-pack. It's cool! It's small. But it's not delicious - it may look like fruit, but it's a robot.  Don't make the same mistake as some guy I just made up. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,743: Luke Skywalker (Dagobah, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, October 23, 2020

Available in 40th anniversary packaging or in a 2-pack with Yoda, this Luke Skywalker (Dagobah, The Black Series 6-Inch) is a good one.   The articulation is well-integrated, the accessories are well-selected, and the price of the two-pack is, well, high.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,742: R2-Series Astromech Droid (R2-Series silver dome with purple, white body with purple, bartender)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 22, 2020

It's a R2-Series Astromech Droid (R2-Series silver dome with purple, white body with purple, bartender)!  Why? No idea.  This makes four flavors of drink droid, and as far as I know this one has no precedent in the movies, cartoons, comics, or games. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,741: BB-BOO20 (Droid Factory Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, October 21, 2020

While we wait to find out what this year's holiday exclusive is - if there is one - we can look at the other holiday exclusive, BB-BOO20 (Droid Factory Line Look)!  It's a little pumpkin.  It's cute, and you can order it online for around $20 shipped. It's more than the $13 at the theme parks, but you're probably not going to the theme parks. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,740: Admiral Ackbar (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 20, 2020

Admiral Ackbar!  This is the second version of him in the 6-inch range, the first being a sequel-based Toys R Us exclusive that seems to share parts with this one.   I wonder how long Hasbro had this one in the works?  It's cool - but has some weird leg stripe alignment issues and lacks the baton all the older fans wish were there as a nod to Kenner's original.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,739: Imperial Stormtrooper (The Mandalorian/Rogue One, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, October 16, 2020

Whatever you think he comes from, the design docs make sure Imperial Stormtrooper (The Mandalorian/Rogue One, The Black Series 6-Inch) covers a couple of bases.  It's a new mold! There's.... an unfinished head under the helmet? The articulation is closer to that of a very good 3 3/4-inch figure. And you  will want dozens.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,737: BB-Series Droid (BB-8-style droid, purple body and purple head)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, October 14, 2020

Now there's a droid of a different color! Possibly at Target near you right now, the  Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,737: BB-Series Droid (BB-8-style droid, purple body and purple head) is, more or less, the same as the other droids in his wave - but purple! That's usually reason enough for me to get one.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,736: R2-Series Astromech Droid (Red and Silver Markings with Bonus R5 Series White Dome with Red and Silver Markings)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 13, 2020

Two heads and is better than one name!  The nameless R2-Series Astromech Droid (Red and Silver Markings with Bonus R5 Series White Dome with Red and Silver Markings) will be a pain in the neck to get on eBay when there's no name on the box - so go get yours now.  It looks similar to other droids, but with slight changes to detail.  R5's dome lacks the pinstriping, for example.  Read on!
