Action Figures

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,089: Gamorrean Guard (The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 12, 2023

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Gamorrean Guard (The Retro Collection). This is a new mold for 2023, based on the 1983 figure. A vintage Kenner figure has better sculpting, with sharper detail and better paint - but if you only know that old figure from photos or fuzzy memories, this is a really good substitute. It feels sturdy and he can hold the ax with no problems, with botoxed detail on the face and armor. Is it a perfect replica? No, he's a little wider-eyed and shinier in the silver - but if you're looking to fill out a scene with retro Kenner Gamorreans, were it not in a 6-pack, this would be a great way to do it. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,088: Morgan Elsbeth (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 7, 2023

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Morgan Elsbeth (The Vintage Collection). This is a good figure, with nice deco and sculpting, plus an excellent likeness. But she has no accessories, and is $17. A variant head would have been nice - and was probably spoiler-locked from development - as would a nod to her spear in the previous series. Nothing in the packaging is bad, so as long as you weren't expecting accessories for your money, you'll be happy. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,087: Artoo-Detoo (R2-D2, The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 5, 2023

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Artoo-Detoo (R2-D2, The Black Series). This is a new mold for 2023, larger than the 2013 version and weirder. He's got a telescoping neck with on-board storage for all his claws and arms, plus a retractable third leg with an articulated foot. That's an unusual feature in Hasbro R2-D2 figures. It's by no means perfect, but it's a pretty great replacement for the old one if you feel like dropping $25 on another R2-D2, which I of course did. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,086: BB Droid (Silver, Advent Calendar 2022)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 30, 2023

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: BB Droid (Advent Calendar 2022). It's an ornament! I think - for a robot in a Christmas/Holiday set, it certainly looks like something that could just be a run-of-the-mill droid. There's white paint and metallic blue, making this the kind of thing you could see serving on an X-wing and not, unlike many of the others in the set, particulrly pecific to any one time of the year. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,085: Chopper (C1-10P, The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 28, 2023

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Chopper (C1-10P, The Retro Collection). This is one of those figures you buy, open, and go "yeah, that's the stuff." Like R2-D2 of old, he has a clicky dome and a sticker. Unlike R2-D2, he has a removable third leg. If you were a Kenner kid, this is a must-buy figure - I'd say they more or less nailed it, except for the fact he's a hair too wide to fit in the old Y-Wing Fighter's droid socket. I would say it's one of the very best figures of the year, if you're in to this format.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,084: Admiral Motti (Imperial Officers set, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 23, 2023

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Admiral Motti (Imperial Officers set, The Vintage Collection). It's new! The last time we got a new Motti mold was in the CommTech era, and we had a reissue of him in a Diamond exclusive boxed set - remember those? Those were great. Anyway, this new one has improved sculpting and articulation - that's good! - but it doesn't have that tug-on-the-collar choke thing, which is pretty much the reason you want a toy of that character. It's still pretty good, and so far exclusive to a white box set of figures. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,083: General Hera Syndulla (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 21, 2023

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: General Hera Syndulla (The Black Series). Even if you didn't love the show, you can't not like the figure. The face paint is good, the green skin looks great. I love her jacket and gloves, and the bright orange pants really pop. It's the kind of figure you probably wish you had years earlier, especially if it were smaller and could fit in vehicles. (And as luck would have it, those are also available now.) Even as someone who is kind of over the whole 6-inch thing, I can't deny this is a good one. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,082: R6 Droid (Advent Calendar 2022)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 16, 2023

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: R6 Droid (Advent Calendar 2022). It's an elf! And you can still get one, if you dare. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,081: Wicket W. Warrick (Ewoks Cartoon, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 14, 2023

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Wicket W. Warrick (Ewoks Cartoon, The Vintage Collection). Depending on how you look at it, it's great. In person, the hood is a little on the neon orange side - but it looks good in pictures, and is not quite the yellowish hues seen on 1980s Ewok advertising artwork. There's a lot to like, and a little to complain about, but you get a good coin and really nice packaging for (what else) a premium price.

It's still cheaper than the one Kenner made in the 1980s.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,080: Ahsoka Tano (Padawan, The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 9, 2023

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Ahsoka Tano (Padawan, The Black Series). It's one of the last closed-box figures, and she turned out quite nicely. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,079: R4 Droid (Advent Calendar 2022)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 7, 2023

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: R4 Droid (Advent Calendar 2022). It's a nice design, but I don't think I understood the inspiration - it looks like DHL, but not. There's a little symbol on the dome, it's kind of sparkly, but mostly it just looks like a cool droid you wouldn't mind having around in any Star Wars scenario. I like it a lot. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,078: R3-T6 (Custom)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 2, 2023

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: R3-T6 (Custom). It's not a licensed product and it was quite expensive for what it is, but it's the kind of thing I've always been surprised Kenner - and especially Hasbro - never pursued with the old R2-D2 mold. Secondary market prices on the droids from Stan Solo are getting expensive, and it makes sense - they look cool and are functionally pretty nice. I'd recommend it if you're no longer buying as much licensed stuff. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,077: Cad Bane (The Book of Boba Fett, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 31, 2023

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Cad Bane (The Book of Boba Fett, The Vintage Collection). I like this one - aliens in hats are not common in any action figure line, so a new version of a live-action take on everybody's favorite blue cowboy alien bounty hunter is pretty welcome. The joints are good, the deco is good, the sculpt is nice, and the price still kind of stings a bit. But it's a very nice figure. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,076: Krrsantan (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 26, 2023

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Krrsantan (The Black Series). This is a perfectly nice basic figure, but it's priced as a deluxe - he's shorter than Chewbacca and has a similar accessory count, but it would seem the most popular characters are getting pulled aside for a wider box with more empty space in it with a higher price. But the sculpt is good, the articulation is well-engineered, and he has the minimum amount of accessories that you need to say "OK, he looks cool on my desk" while the smaller one has six hands and way too much gear for almost the same price. It's an increasingly bizarre line, ad a basic Kenner-style one is due shortly.
