Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,485: Wampa (with Luke Skywalker, Solo/The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, May 28, 2018

Packaged in a red and white box with The Last Jedi hues but shipping in the Solo assortments, the most-articulated Wampa yet is out in the Force Link 2.0 assortments - but at press time, the app and Force Link band require an as-of-yet unpublished firmware update to make it talk.  (We got one update to get most toys working, this one still doesn't.)   There are a lot of weird, wrong things about the toy's sound chip and box, but the jointed knees and elbows will get you your best Wampa yet.  Read on!

Available Now: Solo: A Star Wars Story - Wind-Up Fight Droids

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, May 27, 2018

3587 Disney theme parks are selli Solo: A Star Wars Story - Wind-Up Fight Droids for $9.95 (plus shipping).  The Astromech 4-pack isn't online at this time - I still need to get one, myself - but this 2-pack is. The listing says they're 3 3/4-inches, so I assume that means they'll fit nicely next to Hasbro figures.  Order yours here.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,484: Supreme Leader Snoke (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, May 23, 2018

One of the more highly-requested figures after The Force Awakens came out, Supreme Leader Snoke has had a pretty good recent run as action figures.   This one has a cloth outfit and a generous slathering of articulation, and it's also the only completely new figure in the new 2018 The Vintage Collection so far.   As such, you're probably on your way to buy one.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,483: Finn (First Order Disguise, The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, May 21, 2018

I'm a fan of this Finn, in part because it's exclusive where I work and in stock right now.  He has a great sculpt, a good costume, and above par accessories - and the voice clips are actually him.  Sure, some are from another movie, but it's something.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,482: Kylo Ren (with display base and metal helmet, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, May 16, 2018

The long-delayed Kylo Ren (with display base and metal helmet, The Black Series 6-Inch)  hit a few weeks ago, and it's surprisngly decent.  He has a metal helmet and a cloth cape, and if that weren't enough there's also a display base that can connect to Snoke's throne.   It's a lot of plastic, and you're charged accordingly.  Is it worth it? Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,481: Kylo Ren (The Black Series Centerpiece)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, May 14, 2018

With a better design, a better sculpt, better electronics, and an actual moment from the movies, this Kylo Ren Centerpiece figure is the 6-inch statue you never knew you wanted.  The box is cool, the figure is awesome, and the Force-frozen blaster bolt is the best.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,480: Darth Maul (Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, May 9, 2018

Possibly now available, but also likely to be sold out at a store near you, this Darth Maul is part of a new 2-pack that just hit.  The review was queued up before the app went live, but its Force Link 2.0 clips are a soundalike for some reason.   We are not amused.  But since the figure is fine, at least future generations won't have to be quite as sad when support for the app and firmware inevitably ends.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,479: Qui-Gon Jinn (Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, May 7, 2018

Part of a new 2-pack, the Qui-Gon Jinn (Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look) is pretty sharp.  The Maul it comes with is no slouch - there are some great accessories, and one confusing one.  It's worth your money, even if the Force Link clips are soundalikes.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,478: Han Solo (Speeder, Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, May 2, 2018

Let's look at Han Solo (Speeder, Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)!  He has a new outfit, a head that looks like Han but not really like the new actor - which means, we can now assume this is intentional - and a blue speeder that looks a lot like a book.  I like it.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,477: Dewback with Sandtrooper (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, April 30, 2018

New from Hasbro - if you can find it - is this Dewback with Sandtrooper (The Black Series 6-Inch)!  It's big and neat and probably sold out at a store near you.  It mixes elements of the newer CG Dewbacks with the original prop puppet, resulting in a surprisingly well-made lizard with articulated toes.  And an articulated tongue.  Find a better Dewback, I dare you.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,476: Porgs (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, April 25, 2018

Porgs!  You love them, they're small, and they somehow don't impale themselves on dangerous artifacts.   You can get two in a small box, and you probably should.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,475: Range Trooper (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, April 23, 2018

While we haven't seen it in the movies, the Range Trooper (The Black Series 6-Inch)  is pretty cool.  There's a fuzzy collar that looks good, bits and pieces that look cobbled together from Snowtroopers and Beachtroopers.   I like it - but will we like the movie?  I don't know.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,474: Grand Moff Tarkin (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, April 18, 2018

One of the biggest hits of the new launch is Grand Moff Tarkin (The Black Series 6-Inch) .  There's a lot of good stuff - but this one is great.  He has a torture droid and easily the best "classic" likeness on one of these figures yet!  Read on.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,473: Han Solo (Solo, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, April 16, 2018

Lifelike but Aiden-ish, the Han Solo (Solo, The Black Series 6-Inch) is pretty good.  Nice costume, good articulation, excellent paint.   And you can find it online or at a store near you - read on!
