Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,467

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, January 27, 2011

From the future of Star Wars comes Sigel Dare, an Imperial Knight that barely squeaked out with an action figure release before the comic packs went away.  Is she any good?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,466

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, January 26, 2011

It's Carnor Jax in training gear!  Note the blue outfit, recycled Clone trainee legs, and nifty logo on his back.  Should you pick up this guardsman-to-be?  Read on!

Figure of the Day: Day 1,465

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, January 25, 2011

The second (and much improved) animated Magnaguard is pretty fantastic-- not as good as the Vintage one, but still exquisite.  It's lanky and chunky, has some great gear, and an excellent sculpt.  Read on!

Figure of the Day: Day 1,464

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, January 24, 2011

Back before we called them "soft goods" Kenner enlisted its girls division to make this great Princess Leia Organa figure in an all-cloth white dress.  Wow!  For once, articulation wasn't restricted by the outfit.  Should you get one today?  Well, maybe.  Read on!

Figure of the Day: Day 1,463

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, January 21, 2011

This Lando Calrissian redeco is notable for being bad-- actually, one of Hasbro's worst.  Target sold a big Battle Pack with this figure, which was pretty bad, and a  Luke redeco that's even worse.  Why so awful?   Read on!

Figure of the Day: Day 1,462

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, January 20, 2011

Not as exciting as yesterday's AT-RT figure, this AT-RT Driver was a Target exclusive in a unique green color.  I like the green lenses in particular, but still, it hasn't really made any appearances as of yet.  Is it worth a look?  Read on!

Figure of the Day: Day 1,461

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, January 19, 2011

Hey kids, it's ARF Trooper Boil!  Not many Clones get more than one figure, but this one did-- and just look at that detail!  Unique camo, a special tampo on his helmet, and great articulation make this one of the best figures you likely passed on late last year, because you are a bad person.  Read on!

Figure of the Day: Day 1,460

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, January 18, 2011

Hey kids, it's Scorch!  The first-ever Republic Commando figure came out in 2006, in ancient history when figures didn't always have 14 points of articulation.  He was hot stuff-- want to see why?  Read on!

Figure of the Day: Day 1,459: The New Cad Bane

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, January 17, 2011

It's new!  This is the brand-new just-out Cad Bane which is an entirely new sculpt, but you'll probably jump on it because it also includes Todo 360. The figure is way better looking than both previous releases, and almost looks like a realistic movie figure.  Read on!

Figure of the Day: Day 1,458

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, January 15, 2011

While I posted the story yesterday, apparently it didn't get front paged!  Check out this Cloud City Wing Guard from 2009-- he's pretty swell!   And cheap.  Cheap is, of course, great as you'll want several.  Read on!

New Clone Wars Figures Revealed on the Sandtroopers Forums

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, January 13, 2011

Our pals at Sandtroopers.com have images of two packaged figures which, in turn, reveal several more new figures from upcoming The Clone Wars assortments.  Which, we're gambling, are going to be revealed officially in New York.  Just click here to see them all in their forums, and be delighted by a new Barriss Offee, El-Les, and Kmart exclusive Clone Captain Lock!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,457: Sila Kott (A-Wing Pilot)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, January 13, 2011

So I popped open my new Endor sets yesterday and then I did some research to see who these guys were-- because other than Grizz Frix, the figures like Sila Kott are supremely obscure. Heck, they didn't all have names just yet... and Sila's gender is up to discussion!  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,456

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, January 12, 2011

So much excitement!  Let's slow things down a bit with Plo Koon from 2002.  At first the figure was a little tough to get, but like most things, that didn't last forever.  Do you need this version in your collection?  Read on!

New Vintage Wave Leaked Early

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, January 12, 2011

 

Toy Fair is a fun time of year, and it looks like we get to open a few of our presents early.  A new wave of The Vintage Collection is known to us because a packaged sample of Luke Skywalker (Dagobah Pilot) has been making the rounds.   New figures include Lando Calrissian (General), Clone Trooper, AT-RT Driver, Fi-Ek Sirch, and a new Weequay.

Battle Over Endor Figure Packs Hitting US Toys "R" Us Stores Now

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, January 12, 2011

The two Battle Over Endor action figure packs are hitting Toys "R" Us as you read this-- each is $24.99, which is a really good value for 4 new figures these days.   Of note, my R5-P9 was packaged backward, with his dome spun around 180 degrees.  There's nothing wrong with the figure once you open it, but it's possible some (or all) may be sold this way.  Also, each package has a different Return of the Jedi-themed backdrop.
