The new TIE Pilot came out single-carded last month, and I just got a box in the mail yesterday with it repacked in a 2-pack with a Stormtrooper. (Smart move, Hasbro!) This means you can get this figure - it also means we've got another 2-3 weeks of FOTD ahead of us, so strap in and read on!
Check out Commander Bly, the odd man out in the Endor wave of Saga Legends. He doesn't have the brown stripe, he doesn't have a round peg on his binoculars, but he is pretty cheap - so why not read this review?
Check out the Jedi Temple Guard, a live-action style figure from The Clone Wars that's part of the Star Wars Rebels Saga Legends collection. It's in stores now if you can find it, and you should make the attempt to find one. Read on!
While its namesake may inspire giggles, the AT-DP Driver is a pretty great figure. It's a new character in a new costume, for a new vehicle, and it's only about six bucks when you can find one. The color isn't perfect, but the amount of paint and added detail is excellent. Read on!
Check out the new 2015 AT-AT Driver! With 5 points of articulation it's really an ideal figure for the vintage 1980 and the POTF2-era AT-AT vehicles, thanks to his lack of knees. Detail is pretty good, and if you get this one you can save your Saga Collection and Vintage Collection releases for the new, big, fancier AT-ATs. Read on!
Rounding out the latest - and hopefully not last - wave of Saga Legends, we look at Han Solo (Endor) before turning back to the last couple of waves next week. Han has 5 points of articulation and brings back the plastic jacket - most of the figures have had cloth ones. This Han has no holster, but it's pretty swell all the same. Read on!
Today we look at a Biker Scout, a 5-jointed figure packed with Wicket in the popular Mission Series line. He has a working holster, and can also sit on a Speeder Bike in the same manner of the 1983 original. It's pretty cool - want to know more? Read on!
A character that gets a lot of marketing love, but not a lot of collector love, is Wicket W. Warrick. He's had several unique action figures since 1984 plus a whole mini-toyline aimed at preschoolers, and now he's back as a figure that feels and plays like something that would have been obscenely expensive in 1983 - but is $10, and comes with a free Biker Scout. It's been 5 years since the last Wicket, are we ready for a new one? Read on!
Check out Princess Leia (Endor)! This new-for-2015 figure is a new sculpt entering circulation today with a cool blaster, working holster, and a slightly shorter stature. I really like it - I think you will too. Read on!
The seemingly now endless parade of Figure of the Day continues! Hasbro put out yet another new wave of Saga Legends - that's 3 this year so far - and we start looking at it with Luke Skywalker (Endor). It's the Endor Battle Poncho! He's new parts, and the poncho is a physical non-removable part of the figure this time. It's also probably the least bunchy looking one yet. Read on!
It's a movieish version of The Clone Wars Plo Koon! While his outfit won't let him fit in the Starfighters and his gloves are unpainted, there's still plenty of paint between the armor and the masks. Is the level of detail worth buying yet another Plo Koon? Read on!
After a handful of figures, we got a new Clone Commander Gree! The cartoon costume is in a movie sculpt, with 5 points of articulation and just enough paint to be recognizably Gree-ey. This one is showing up in stores now or you can snag it at our wonderful online sponsors. Want to know more? Read on!
So it looks like a whopping 5 waves of 5-jointed figures are hitting now between Mission Series and Saga Legends, like Skiff Guard Lando Calrissian here. His helmet is non-removable, but the sculpt is really good. Check it out, read on!
New this year is Han Solo, one of a bunch of waves all hitting right now. He has a holster, he fits in the Millennium Falcon toy ships quite nicely, and he's pretty cheap if you can find one. (I've seen it in stores too.) Want to know more? Read on!
Our next week of Figure of the Day kicks off with Luke Skywalker, a 2015 redesign with a helmet and not a lot of paint. It's a pretty fun figure, but has no gun. It does fit nicely inside pretty much any 3 3/4-inch scale X-Wing toy you may own, though, so go ahead and give this one a look. Read on!
