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!

ICYMI: Onell Design Glyos Walruden Action Figure

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, April 18, 2019

It has sold out, but we want to point you to the Onell Design Glyos Walruden anyway.  It's the fourth Kenner Cantina-style figure from the company so far, and I assume we're almost due for the next release.  Read the full review at 16bit.com.

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!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,576: R2-D2 (Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, April 11, 2019

If you have a Force Link 2.0 band, you'll love the beeps on the R2-D2 (Solo: A Star Wars Story line look).  It's a redeco of an existing mold, and the flames are super colorful.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,575: C-3PO (Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 9, 2019

This C-3PO (Solo: A Star Wars Story line look) has gorgeous paint work - you can see the oil dripping out of his pores.   With 5 points of articulation it's some of Hasbro's best paintwork, and it's on the kid's line.  It's also starting to show up in the USA finally so get yours if you can.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,574: Stormtrooper (Resistance line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, April 4, 2019

It's a little different!  With a mighty scowl, Stormtrooper (Resistance line look)  has a blaster and no hip slot for a blaster.   It's black and white and not red all over, and one of few figures in the fairly small Resistance series.  It's neat, but should you get it if you have a bunch of First Order Movie Stormtroopers?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,573: Torra Doza (Resistance line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 2, 2019

Two heads are better than one!  Torra Doza has that classic Gulf coloring with two heads!  There's a second one inside the helmet.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,572: Commander Pyre (Resistance line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 28, 2019

It's good as gold! The Commander Pyre (Resistance line look) seems to be selling in my local stores - along with the other figures! They're neat, and it's not like we get a Stormtrooper with a name every year.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,571: Major Vonreg (Resistance line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 26, 2019

Sort of a futuristic throwback, Major Vonreg (Resistance line look) is a skinny, brightly-colored figure that looks like he might have been at home in the 1980s Droids line - so you know I love it.  But will you?   Yes.  It's red, it's a pilot, and it's probably the only figure we'll see of this guy.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,570: Stormtrooper (Mimban, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 21, 2019

If you can find it, now that it's finally hitting shelves at Walmarts, this Stormtrooper (Mimban, The Vintage Collection) is fantastic.  Articulation is above par, it has two blasters, there's a cloth cape, and it's one of the best things going right now.  Again - provided you can find it.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,569: General Grievous (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 19, 2019

This General Grievous (The Black Series 6-Inch) is shipping now, and it's pretty fancy.  Hasbro left off the symbol on his cape, but did add pockets to store lightsabers in the lining.   It looks good, but lacks some of the articulation of the admittedly not-so-elegant 3 3/4-inch The Vintage Collection release from a few years ago.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,568: Jarek Yaeger (Resistance line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 14, 2019

You probably should go run out and buy this Jarek Yaeger (Resistance line look)  if you see it.  It's a good human figure, with a good droid and a swappable head helmet accessory.  I don't assume there will be many more waves of Resistance, so go ahead and get the set unless you hate 1980s-style articulation that really works.  Read on!

New Glyos Tribute Figure - Walruden!

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 7, 2019

It's up! A new figure based on the Robo-Force mold is just one of several new releases from Onell Design, but the one you care about is Walruden.  It's available now but the final photography is being withheld - you'll see it first when it arrives, and it'll probably be colored just like Walrus Man.  Click here to see what's available.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,566: Kaz Xiono (Resistance line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 7, 2019

Starring in Resistance is Kaz Xiono (Resistance line look)!  You're probably not watching the show, but Hasbro did a good job with the figure.  It has a nice silhouette, stands and sits well, and feels like a classic Kenner action figure (made in 2019.)  The face paint is really good too - read on!
