Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,797

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, May 3, 2012

For years, fans have been asking Hasbro for the "ceremonial" Han Solo.  This is Hasbro's first 3 3/4-inch attempt... it's adequate, but the shirt is wrong.  Other than that? Well, read on!

Image Bank Review: Bespin Battle Battle Pack

By Mike — Thursday, May 3, 2012

When Hasbro bragged during their speedy presentation at this year's Toy Fair that these new Battle Pack figures are the best they've done of these characters yet, they were somewhat correct... from a certain point of view. The regression in articulation has caused much controversy and debate in the collector community since. Yes, these figures feature excellent sculpting and awful POTF2 era poseability. No, it doesn't have to be this good and that bad.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,796

Behold, the first all-new Boba Fett sculpt since at least 2008!   This is the new Battle Packs release, which has 5 joints and a really nice, action figurey sculpt.  I love it.  You should love it too.

A few years ago, Hasbro brought over Tomy's RC droids!  Target got them as exclusives, and R5-D4 looks pretty good.  Should you track him down?  Read on!

It's not R2-A6, it's R2-N3!  This droid is green, new, and just different enough to make you mad, or happy, or both.  I like it, as I can't get enough of astromechsRead on!

Image Bank: CW11 Republic Commando Boss

By Mike — Wednesday, April 25, 2012

Expanded Canon meets Expanded Universe as the fan favorite Republic Commando Boss gets the Clone Wars treatment in 2012 with  good sculpt, but awfully limited leg articulation. He comes with his standard commando weaponry, a zip line, and a cool storage pack to harness his hand blasters.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,791

The main selling point of this Anakin Skywalker figure is probably his dirty mug, follwed by the helmet.  Sadly, it doesn't really fit in the matching Pod Racer, nor is it a new mold-- it's a 2000-era figure.  Is it worth getting as part of a big set?  R

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,790

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 24, 2012

While a long-requested figure, Ben Quadinaros had lost Fan's Choice voting more than once, and this figure actually looks significantly meaner than the renderings from the movie.  Is this crueller take on the kite with arms worth buying? Read on!

Image Bank: CW17 Commander Wolffe

By Mike — Tuesday, April 24, 2012

The leader of the Wolfpack upgrades his armor but loses mobility for his second figure release. There are a few things so right about this figure and a lot that could have been done better. Visually, he looks stunning, but if you can get by with 8 points of articulation on a figure that's meant to be posed dynamically or keep your figures carded, then you'll probably be O.K. 

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,789

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, April 23, 2012

New from The Clone Wars is the anticipated SCUBA Gear Ahsoka Tano, another in a long chain of hard-to-get figures of this character.  She looks great! But the articulation, not so great.   Read on!
