Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,973

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, January 4, 2013

From earlier in 2012, this Obi-Wan Kenobi was resculpted from previous releases to look closer to the cartoon counterpart while adding a swell backpack.  Or, this Obi-Wan Kenobi ate up a tooling slot that could've gone to a new character, of which we pretty much got none in 2012.  Take your pick.  Either way, it's a nicely-sculpted figure with decent gear.

Check out the Imperial Navy Commando, part of the last big boxed set we got based on the lesser-console exclusive levels of The Force Unleashed.  It's a good figure, despite being unrecognizable to fans of the game series who played it on the Xbox 360 or Playstation 3.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,971

While not a huge hit in 2010, this Owen Lars figure from a Darth Maul-bedecked comic pack is now hot stuff.  Did you skip it?  You poor fool.  Once a mere $15, this set will now set you back several times that. Is it worth the asking price?

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,970

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, January 1, 2013

Easily the most infuriating moment in Star Wars action figure collecting in 2012 was the announcement that this green R4 Series Astromech Droid and a couple dozen more just like him would be exclusive to a theme park.   These dubiously necessary collectibles required a significant expense to obtain, be it time, money, or a mix.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,969

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, December 31, 2012

While Hasbro put out a bunch of action figures in 2012, we look at their simplest one in our final Figure of the Day for the year.  This Battle Droid has but 2 points of articulation, yet stands fairly well and looks pretty good.  Not bad as a figure designed as filler for an MTT's droid rack!  If you haven't got one already, should you?

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,968

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, December 28, 2012

This Obi-Wan Kenobi is a realistic take on the 2008 incarnation of his Clone Wars armor.  It's (at least) the third non-animated 3 3/4-inch figure to do some take on this outfit, and I think it's my favorite.  Is it worth ordering this de facto online exclusive? 

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,967

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 27, 2012

This Expanded Universe Tri-Droid came from a hard-to-find Battle Pack which is actually quite good.  The unique take on the droid has a blood red Separatist symbol plus a lot of black, meaning it's like a goth robot or something.  It deprograms itself so it feels something.  Is it worth getting?

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,966

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, December 26, 2012

It's Snaggletooth, sort of!  From Target's still-available Vintage 3-Packs, this is an update of the creature from the first movie, but it doesn't look a lot like the original Kenner action figure.  It's really cool though. 

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,965

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 25, 2012

As one of the last Christmas figures, this Holiday Jawa works as a non-Christmas figure too.  He's holding a 3 3/4-inch scale Training Remote, an accessory which to this day still hasn't really been done for full-height action figures.  Beyond the retooled arms and unique eyes, it's like the wonderful 1996 Jawa action figure.  Did you get one?
