Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,574

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, June 27, 2011

It's not superbly common that we get a character like Anakin Skywalker in a disguise like this Naboo Pilot uniform without a regular Naboo Pilot coming out first-- but hey, here we are!  It's a neat figure with a neat ship.  Are you excited?  Should you be?  Read on!

New Target Vintage 3-Packs, Same Old Boring Figures

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, June 24, 2011

If you've been enjoying Hasbro's Kenner-style Special Action Figure Set 3-packs at Target, the guys at LightGeschindigKeit.de have fully-packaged shots of more of them-- with no new figures and a few decent repacks. As always, figures are from Star Wars and Empire. Read on!

Some like it Hoth, like this Rebel Trooper variant from last year! It's a Target exclusive, and pretty slick. It's similar to the 2009 carded release, save for the hair color.  Should you get it?  Read on!

New Star Wars Saga Legends Spacetrooper Includes Gun Now

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, June 24, 2011

Last year when Hasbro released the Spacetrooper, it had shoulder pads, a jetpack, and a droid bit.  The droid bit is gone, and now that he's shipping from Hasbro in Saga Legends packaging, he's got a new (to him) gun. (The ammo thing isn't on the side like a Stormtrooper gun, rather it appears similar to a redeco of Wioslea's weapon.) Click through for bigger pics.

One of Jabba's dancers, this Rystall figure has been readily available online throughout the 2000s, cheaply, and has been blown out and later reissued as a Wal-Mart exclusive. In short: she's very very cheap.  Should you get one?  Read on!

After Hasbro gave us our first R3-A2, it was a little surprising to see them go back and try again-- but hey, it's way better! This build-a-droid was a wonderful release that, hopefully, you bought. Because it's great.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,570

If you love Tusken Raider figures, Hasbro decided to do you a solid by releasing a "red clan" in early 2007 so you can add a little something new and different to your collection. I like this idea.  So how did the "vintage" molded figure turn out?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,569

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, June 20, 2011

This Shadow Trooper is supposed to be a Clone in bounty hunter disguise.  Not a very good one, as it looks pretty much like the Shadow Troopers of Utapau.  It's neat though-- as German exclusives that got dumped online go, it's nice enough.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,568

Before you bring the funk-- as I assume that's what you'll be doing if you aren't watching Super 8-- check out this Super Battle Droid.  It's part of a Battle Pack which is pretty easy to get, so if you're in the market for something new (to you) it might be worth a look.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,567

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, June 16, 2011

In 1991, we found out Han and Leia had kids.  In 2010, we got figures of them.  Jacen Solo was born with the big Star Wars comeback of the 1990s but didn't get a toy until he was both an adult, and if memory serves he was quite dead by the time the toy happened. (SPOILERS?

If you like black repaints of the Scout Trooper, Hasbro has been really good to you over the past few years.  This Storm Commando is one of four repaints and/or remolds I can think of off the top of my head, exclusive to Wal-Mart last Spring. Should you care?  Read on!

While you start hunting for the new, just-relased Logray don't forget to bolster your Ewok armies with the likes of Kettch here.  He's a Wal-Mart exclusive and comes with amror!  How about that?  Get one. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,564

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, June 13, 2011

He's new!  It's Bom Vimdin which is apparently the current official spelling of this guy, who's a really cool Cantina alien that Hasbro absolutely smashed out of the park. Good things come to those who wait... 34 years.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,563

Packaged as Ace-38 but often referred to as AC-38, this new action figure is at Disney parks now and is part of those $39.95 boxed sets the kids are all crazy about.  Is it worth it?  I think so.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,562

If you like orange troopers, this Clone Trooper Lieutenant was one you should've bought last year-- mostly because you can't get one easily today.  It has a swell hook launcher which doesn't actually launch.  It's still pretty cool-- read on!
