Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,582: Vice Admiral Holdo (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, May 2, 2019

The Vice Admiral Holdo (The Black Series 6-Inch)  turned out  to be an example of things working against things not working.  Her hair is amazing, and the head sculpt is spectacular.  But the eyes aren't quite right, and the dress doesn't fall on the shoulders properly.  Hasbro did do a spectacular job with the plastic dress element around the neck and arms, plus her articulation is good too.  Is she worth it? Do you have any other Holdo options?  Is this just going to be customized later?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,581: Darth Vader (2019, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, April 29, 2019

Annoyingly essential!  Can you believe that this Darth Vader (2019, The Vintage Collection) is based on what was once the go-to Darth Vader figure mold from 2005?  Originally used in the Evolution set, this one has a shockingly good series of paint applciations on the Anakin head under the helmet - and some improvments on the armor too.  This is the 2019 release of the Vintage figure from 2010, so it's a repaint of a reissue of a remake or some such.  If that sounds interesting, let me assure you that you're going to want this one.  At this time it appears it's a de facto online exclusive, unless you shop somewhere that orders from a distributor that just happens to also sell online.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,580: Imperial Jumptrooper (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, April 25, 2019

This Imperial Jumptrooper (The Black Series 6-Inch) is showing up at GameStops and includes a display stand.  It's basically a normal Stormtrooper with a new head, shoudlers, jetpack, and a display base that's adequate.  Is it worth grabbing?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,579: Battle Droid (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 23, 2019

Hasbro did a perfect job with the imperfect Battle Droid (The Black Series 6-Inch) design!  Thanks to skinny limbs, balancing him perfectly so he won't fall in a few hours is a challenge - so get yourself a display stand that can hold him up by the waist.  And then settle in for one of the best figures Hasbro has engineered at this size, with tons of articulation and superb paint.  It's the thing you want to celebrate the 20th anniversary of The Phantom Menace, and yes it has been that long.  Read on!

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, April 18, 2019

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, April 18, 2019

This Padme Amidala (The Black Series 6-Inch) is a keeper.  You get alternate hands, a blaster, a bigger blaster, and a cape - plus one of the better likenesses on a human figure.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,577: Synara San (Resistance line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 16, 2019

Fresh from the first season of Resistance, it's Synara San (Resistance line look)!  We didn't hear any buzz for more figures from the show out of Celebration, so go ahead and track these down now. It shouldn't be a huge collection.  I dig how her costume seems to take elements of a Biker Scout pants and Lando's guard helmet.  Read on!
