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

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.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,455

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, January 11, 2011

Before he had a purple lightsaber, Mace Windu got a couple of figure releases including this little number with a big removable plastic cloak.  The figure had pretty decent articulation for his day, and a head sculpt that some prefer to the more recent figures.  What do you think?  Read on, and leave a comment!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,453

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, January 7, 2011

Today we look at another one of the Entertainment Earth exclusive comic pack figures with Baron Fel, which is a nicely modified 2007 Death Star Trooper.  He has a hat, a helmet, and a goatee-- all things that probably would have made the 2007 Baron Fel better.   Read on!
