Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,134: AT-DP Driver (Star Wars Rebels Saga Legends)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 31, 2015

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!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,133: AT-AT Driver (Star Wars Rebels Saga Legends)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, March 30, 2015

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-ATsRead on!

Did you know that in the 1990s people bought multiple figures based on subtle changes of the belt, or a comma on the packaging, or a warning sticker? It's true!

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, March 27, 2015

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!

Star Wars Figure of the Day Review: Day 2,130: Wicket W. Warrick (Star Wars Rebels Mission Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, March 25, 2015

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!

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, March 23, 2015

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!

Review: Funko Star Wars Hikari Vinyl Original Greedo Figure

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, March 21, 2015

Funko's admittedly bizarre and nifty Hikari Vinyl figure line is, in short, to vinyl figures what Gentle Giant was to Mini Busts back in 2002. It's a little strange, it seems expensive, they're limited, and it's a big shift from the kind of cheap stuff we were used to seeing. Several figures have been announced but this Original Greedo is their very first release. Each individual figure has a name for each paintjob, but it's only visible on the trading card inside each figure's box and can not be seen on the packaging's exterior. It's in the 7 1/4-inch range, rather than the much larger Hikari Marvel figures and comes to you hand-painted with 3 points of articulation.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,127: Plo Koon (Star Wars Rebels Saga Legends)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, March 20, 2015

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!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,126: Clone Commander Gree (Star Wars Rebels Saga Legends)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 19, 2015

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!
