Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,088: Snowtrooper Commander (The Black Series 2014)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, July 3, 2014

Rounding out this week's Figure of the Day special run is a Snowtrooper Commander!  It has a great sculpt, a ton of articulation, and two weapons - you can't beat it!  Well, maybe you can, but it would be tough.  Check it out, and read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,087: Toryn Farr (The Black Series 2014)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, July 2, 2014

A new character!  It's Toryn Farr, who is like Uhura with slightly less to do.  The Hoth hero here has headphones and a cool blaster.  Her build is basically 2010 Hoth Leia, with a new head, new vest, new hands, and new forearms.  You're going to love it - even if you don't think you need it,  you totally do.  Read on!

StarWars.com Reveals Walgreens Exclusive Black Series Boba Fett

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 1, 2014

The article: Prototype Boba Fett Black Series Figure – Exclusive Reveal!

Supposedly (depending on the reports) between August and some time this fall, we're going to have access to a $19.99 white "prototype" 6-inch Boba Fett.  A mail-in version of this costume was made for the 3 3/4-inch scale a couple of years ago, so now we'll have access to a bigger version of this character.   Somehow, pre-orders will start at Comic-Con in a few weeks.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,086: Yoda (The Black Series 2014)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 1, 2014

If you're looking for a figure that aspires to give you 1980 engineering with 2014 prices and sculpting, Yoda is it! The new The Black Series 3 3/4-inch figure has a cane, flute, coat, belt, and backpack while somehow only having 5 points of articulation at about $11.   It fits in his backpack just fine, and the jacket needs some fidgeting - but is it good otherwise?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,085: Luke Skywalker (The Black Series 2014)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, June 30, 2014

And we're back!  This new Luke Skywalker figure is shipping now if you ordered online somewhere like our sponsors at Entertainment Earth.   It has more articulation than nearly any other Star Wars figure at this size, and has quite the accessory pool.   It even looks better than some of the early promo images - but is it worth tracking down during the summer heat?  Read on!

One Big Ship Deserves Another: Giant Millennium Falcon Coming

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, June 18, 2014

A giant X-wing is en route from Hasbro, and YodasNews.com shows it won't be alone.  A Millennium Falcon of generous proportions - seemingly the 2008 Big Millennium Falcon minus figure compatibility and electronics - is on the way.  The packaging boasts it's over 2 feet long, and Yoda's News says it may be a Walmart exclusive.  Click here to see it.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,084: Snowtrooper (Saga Legends 2014)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, June 5, 2014

Rounding out the new foursome from the great white north, the Snowtrooper is one of those figures you'll be mad you can't get more of.   The split "skirt" lets him sit, but the wide sculpt may make it difficult to cram him in certain vehicles - but he's perfect for filling out your AT-AT's cargo hold.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,083: Darth Maul (Saga Legends 2014)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, June 4, 2014

From Canada, with love!  This new Darth Maul is in stores now - there, not here - and is an all-new sculpt with a flared blade on the lightsaber, if you keep tabs on such things.  He can fit in the Sith Infiltrator vehicle, stand, and fight.  Can you ask for more? Probably, but you won't get it for the price.  Read on

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,082: Luke Skywalker (Saga Legends 2014)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, June 3, 2014

While my flight continues to not board me, why not read about Luke Skywalker? This new 2014 Saga Legends figure is a new sculpt in Canada right now.  Is it worth the loonies?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,081: Obi-Wan Kenobi (Saga Legends 2014)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, June 2, 2014

We're back! (A Dinosaur's story.)  This Obi-Wan Kenobi is today's Star Wars Figure of the Day!  It just hit Canada and, so far, seemingly nowhere else.  This wave's absence from store shelves and online pre-sells is conspicuous so far, but thankfully a kind soul managed to help me get a set to show all of you.
