Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,304: Moroff (Rogue One)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, November 9, 2016

It's Moroff!  He comes with a trooper you want, but is actually a pretty fantastic figure himself.  He may have laughable hair, but it would seem that sort of thing is accepted as of late.   He also includes a giant backpack cannon and a smaller - but still big - rifle.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,303: Imperial Stormtrooper (Rogue One)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 8, 2016

This new Imperial Stormtrooper looks like how most people imagined Sandtroopers in the 1990s - most customs were just a shoulder pad on a Stormtrooper, and it was always orange. The configuration appered in Star Wars Rebels too - but this is the movie Rogue One version with an added ammo pouch.  Swanky!  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,302: Baze Malbus (Rogue One)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, November 7, 2016

Baze Malbus is some sort of weapons expert in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.   The figure was designed accordingly with a massive backpack rocket launcher that may or may not be in the movie.  I have no idea - all I know is that I have this figure in my hands and it looks pretty good.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,301: Sergeant Jyn Erso (Jedha, Rogue One)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 3, 2016

It's Sergeant Jyn Erso (Jedha) from wave 2 of the 3 3/4-inch Rogue One line!  She has a scarf, a blaster, a rocket launcher, and feels like she'd be right at home in the mid-late 1980s "off camera" world of Star Wars toys.   If she couldn't pilot the ATL Interceptor, I don't know who could.   But is she worth picking up - even with appearances in an upcoming gift set and vehicle?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,300: Director Krennic (Rogue One)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, November 2, 2016

Director Krennic is in charge of the whole Death Star construction thing and has a group of hangers-on called Death Troopers.  As such, one might assume he's the new bad guy - the figure turned out fairly well, although maybe the cape isn't exactly what you wanted.   It's still a nice figure.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,292: Darth Vader (Rogue One)
