Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,033

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, March 29, 2013

It's Willrow Hood, or the Ice Cream Maker Guy.  Thanks to years of fan petitions serious and sarcastic, this extra from The Empire Strikes Back received his day in plastic courtesy of the awareness fans can generate when they work as a large, vocal group.  Do you want to know more about this one?

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,032

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 28, 2013

Today, let's look at last year's Yellow R7-Series Astromech Droid.  It's actually pretty swell!  I like the nacho orangeness of it.  The bad news is that it's yet another figure that will be (potentially) prohibitively difficult for you to find.  Is it worth the effort?

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,031

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, March 27, 2013

This Yoda is in stores right now, and comes with a pretty swell little Jedi Attack Fighter vehicle.  It's a bizarre figure with strange eyes and a fairly nice sculpt.  The whole gift set is actually quite nice, so I'd say go ahead and buy it.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,030

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 26, 2013

Hey kids, it's the 2006 Republic Commando Boss figure!  This was his first of (so far) three toys.  As such, the articulation is the most limited but it's worth noting that the deco is pretty great.  Want to know more?

Custom: McQuarrie, Star Wars, and MOTU Combine for RQ-22

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, March 25, 2013

Customizer, toymaker, and all-around nice guy Joe Amaro has a new custom you ought to see in the works.  The artwork has been posted for R2-22, a droid inspired by Ralph McQuarrie's work on the Masters of the Universe movie and pushed through the lens of Star Wars.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,029

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, March 25, 2013

As the most recent Attack of the Clones Obi-Wan Kenobi to be put back in circulation, you'll be glad to know this one is very OK.  It's not a great fit for the 2013 Jedi Starfighter, but as a figure that can stand around this 2012 release isn't half bad.  How does this 2003 mold ten years later?

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,028

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, March 22, 2013

Does this Biker Scout having different grey dirt splotches make him different? Sure, why not.  It's from a really great 2007 gift set that at the time was one of the greatest bargains the line had to offer.  And today?  Well, it's cheaper than it was a couple of years ago.
