Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,054: Princess Leia Slave Outfit (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, November 11, 2013

Let's finish up the second wave of The Black Series with Princess Leia (Slave Outfit), a 6-inch figure that asks the question "so when do we get Jabba?"   She's short, but so is Carrie Fisher.  Is this truly the best Hasbro can do, or just their first attempt?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,053: Boba Fett (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, November 9, 2013

As of yesterday, I finally saw Boba Fett from The Black Series and all of his casemates in a Target store! Good hunting - but before you go hunt read Figure of the Day to see the new figure.  You may have read the SDCC review a few months ago, and the figure is basically the same - read on! 

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,052: Greedo (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 7, 2013

I just got off of yet another plane so let's look at Greedo, the Black Series sensation that's sweeping the nation.  If you pre-ordered the set online, you'd have it by now.  It's pretty great - not as robust as Han Solo but clearly a lot of work went into this.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,051: Han Solo (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, November 6, 2013

So kids, let's upgrade to the 6-inch Han Solo, which  has alternate belts and alternate hands.  You'll probably spend at least an hour just futzing with him once you open one - it's quite good and fun to mess with.  You get two guns, too.  Could you ask for more?  Yes.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,046: Pablo-Jill (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, October 30, 2013

Now here's one you'll like.  Pablo-Jill was released a few years ago with an excellent statue of a figure - gorgeous - but this new one is way more articulated, with the best wrists I've seen on any Jedi figure to date.  Actual ball-and-socket wrists make this completely articulated figure streets ahead of the competition, easily making it the best prequel Jedi of the season.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,045: Stormtrooper (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 29, 2013

So there's a new Stormtrooper in the 3 3/4-inch The Black Series line which you can buy online now as most stores haven't gotten any yet. It's basically the Dewback/Vintage 2010 Sandtrooper, minus the pauldron and backpack, with a different belt, and cooler guns.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,043: Luminara Unduli (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, October 25, 2013

I just got 6-inch wave 2 in the mail, but I already wrote Luminara Unduli up from The Black Series!  So read that.  She's a new sculpt with a removable hat, good deco, and an excellent sculpt, if you can get beyond the fact that your 2005 figure was probably fine.  Anyway.  Read on! 

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,042: R2-D2 (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 24, 2013

Do we need another R2-D2?  Maybe.  This The Black Series 3 3/4-inch release is from wave 2, and is essentially the 2007 Revenge of the Sith version from the 30th Anniversary Collection but without the flames and coin.  Is it cool?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,041: Mara Jade (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, October 23, 2013

New!  Mara Jade is shipping now - she's in stock at Entertainment Earth as I write this.  The body sculpt and articulation are top-notch, with great accessories.  But the hair?  Well, read all about it in Figure of the Day.

Review + Video: Star Wars Black Series 6-Inch Darth Maul Action Figure

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, August 10, 2013

With The Black Series' 6-inch action figure line, Hasbro is focusing on adult and collector fan favorites which means Darth Maul is a sure thing. Traditionally the one character from the first prequel that everybody agrees is worth owning, Hasbro did a great job on this figure and it's probably the best-looking action figure of Mr. Maul we'll ever see.
