Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,971

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, January 2, 2013

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?

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,964

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, December 24, 2012

Hey kids, it's Santa Yoda!  One of four "Holiday Edition" sets (and one of only two that ended up at the intended retailer), Yoda managed to give fans a new sculpt with some swell accessories, all based on a vintage Ralph McQuarrie painting.  It even came with a Christmas Card!  It's a heck of an ice figure for 2003, despite the then-high price of about $12.95.
