Star Wars Figure of the Day Review: Day 2,128: Luke Skywalker (Endor, Star Wars Rebels Saga Legends)

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!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,125: Lando Calrissian (Star Wars Rebels Saga Legends)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, March 18, 2015

So it looks like a whopping 5 waves of 5-jointed figures are hitting now between Mission Series and Saga Legends, like Skiff Guard Lando Calrissian here.  His helmet is non-removable, but the sculpt is really good.  Check it out, read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,124: Han Solo (Star Wars Rebels Saga Legends)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 17, 2015

New this year is Han Solo, one of a bunch of waves all hitting right now.  He has a holster, he fits in the Millennium Falcon toy ships quite nicely, and he's pretty cheap if you can find one.  (I've seen it in stores too.)  Want to know more?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,123: Luke Skywalker (Star Wars Rebels Saga Legends)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, March 16, 2015

Our next week of Figure of the Day kicks off with Luke Skywalker, a 2015 redesign with a helmet and not a lot of paint.  It's a pretty fun figure, but has no gun.  It does fit nicely inside pretty much any 3 3/4-inch scale X-Wing toy you may own, though, so go ahead and give this one a look.  Read on!

Q&A: Star Wars Vehicle Perfections, International Distribution, and TV Showdown

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, March 15, 2015

Let's Q&A! We talk Canada - and are dismissive, as we are Americans. And The Clone Wars - while dwindling, it ain't dead. Also vehicle greatest hits - is this a good time to buy if you want a definitive take on anything?

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,122: Wookiee Warrior (Star Wars Rebels Mission Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, March 13, 2015

We've had a bunch of nameless Wookiee Warrior action figures, but this is the first cartoon one!  He's skinny, hairy, and tall - and comes in a two-pack with another character.   Should you add to the growing Wookiee horde?  Read on!

Star Wars: Rogue One Is a New Movie Title

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 12, 2015

The Gareth Edwards stand-alone movie has a title: Star Wars: Rogue One.   What's it about?  Well, it's probably about two hours long and it should be in theaters for December 16, 2016.  As your attorney, I advise you to start making room for the new toys one new movie per year are sure to bring you.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,121: Wullffwarro (Star Wars Rebels Mission Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 12, 2015

Do you need a bunch of new Wookiees? I do.  I can't say if you do though.  What I can say is that you can get Wullffwarro right now, and he's pretty cool!  Read on for more in Figure of the Day.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,120: IG-88 (Star Wars Rebels Mission Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, March 11, 2015

Hey kids, it's IG-88! This Mission Series figures is similar in execution to the original Kenner toy, but shorter and with one gun.   And a significantly better sculpt.  You'll want to check out the comparison photos, but probably not my brief thoughts on the figure, when you read on.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,119: Bossk (Star Wars Rebels Mission Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 10, 2015

Meet the new Bossk! (Not the same as the old Bossk.)   In Figure of the Day we look at this 2015 release and compare it to the 1980s version - which one is taller?  The answer may surprise you

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,118: Sabine Wren (Star Wars Rebels Mission Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, March 9, 2015

And we're back! Few columns get as many letters and as few reads as Figure of the Day, and it's back for a while with a look at the figures hitting hard now.  Like Sabine Wren from Star Wars Rebels here - she's got two guns, her helmet doesn't come off, and for budget reasons her paint job isn't quite what you see on TV.  But she's still pretty neat!
