Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,239: Poe Dameron (Jacket 6-Inch Black Series, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 17, 2015

Check out Target's 6-inch Poe Dameron - probably in stores now unless it sold out.   I got mine online for $10 off, which is where you want to be - it's a good figure, but the likeness on Oscar Isaac toys as of yet could use some work.  (He's a tough face to capture.)   Should you get this one?  Read on!

Disney Releases New Star Wars Droid Action Figure - R2-H15

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, November 15, 2015

If you like new droids, Yakface.com has some exciting news for you - the Holiday 2015 droid aptly named R2-H15 is out now!  Actual pricing was not reported, but other droids in this line have been $12.95 and eBay prices (and mark-ups) seem to indicate that's about the going rate.  Good hunting!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,237: Flametrooper (Armor, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, November 13, 2015

The armored Flametrooper has neat armor but weird weapon integration - you can't quite plug in the backpack or torch.   Is it worth paying up to get the orange body armor with First Order symbols?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,236: First Order Snowtrooper (The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 12, 2015

Check out the First Order Snowtrooper.  It's not bad - nice gun, decent sculpt, and for some reason space Wolverine claws for cosplay purposes.  Is it worth adding to your growing army, or is it time to admit the grim, bony fingers reaching from the grave have deprived you of the joy you once experienced from toys as a child?   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,234: Boba Fett (Armor, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 10, 2015

You love this guy.  You'll like this figure.   Boba Fett comes with clamp-on armor that feels like it fell out of a 1992 Kenner sketchbook - it's ugly, and it's neat.  You may love it! You may not.  That's up to you.  I think it's neat enough to share with you, so read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,233: Luke Skywalker (Armor, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, November 9, 2015

Today in Figure of the Day: Luke Skywalker!  Loosely inspired by the Sandstorm Scene and whatever was in the water at Kenner in the late 1980s, this Armor Up version of the Jedi Knight features the same sculpt and lightsaber from last year, but with wacky wrappings, belts, and a backpack for reasons nobody will ever truly understand.  Is it worth the $13? Of course not - but it's weird and fun anyway, so read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,232: Goss Toowers (The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, November 6, 2015

Meet Goss Toowers - the Resistance's famous mechanic.  Dig him up and shake his hand, and then wonder just what role he plays in the movie.  He's got awesome metallic gloves and a spiffy helmet, but is he a character or is he just scenery?  We'll find out soon, but until then we can look at the figure and squint.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,231: PZ-4CO (The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 5, 2015

We got a new Astromech with BB-8, so let's enjoy a new protocol droid with PZ-4CO!  She's blue, she has a long neck, and she looks and feels more toy-like than a lot of other recent figures.  For this reason, why wouldn't you want to buy one?   Read on!

Battle Action Millennium Falcon Best Toy for Christmas 2015

By Mike — Thursday, November 5, 2015

Hasbro's new Battle Action Millennium Falcon is the best toy for the holiday season according to the Telegraph. It may not be a close to scale B.M.F., but features plenty of electronic sounds and lights, not to mention a Nerf firing canon, that should be just the right kind of play magic that would attract the parental demographic looking for gift giving ideas for their The Force Awakens mesmerized kids.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,230: General Hux (The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, November 4, 2015

Meet General Hux!  It's a new character that totally isn't Denis Leary cosplaying as Toht from Raiders.  He's got a long coat, a short gun, and a hat - what more could you ask for?  If it was First Order logos on his sleeves, you'd get that too.  Anyway, it's neat - read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,229: Kylo Ren (Wings, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 3, 2015

Back in September we got Kylo Ren. And now we got another one, with new wacky extra weapons - they're basically wings with Weequay pikes at the end of them.  Is it worth re-buying?   Does it matter if you're a completistRead on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,228: The Inquisitor (Rebels, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, November 2, 2015

Today, let's look at the repackage figure of The Inquisitor with a new shield weapon!  It's neat - well, it's not bad.  You technically have it, but new accessories do warrant a second look.  Read on!

Toys R Us is offering a deal from now through November 21!  "20% off ALL Star Wars 3.75" figures & vehicles."
