Figure of the Day

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,457: Elite Praetorian Guard (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, February 21, 2018

The Elite Praetorian Guard was sold as a Force Link exclusive starter set at Toys R Us... and either sold or was disappeared.   I remember seeing these come out and being surprised as they started to dry up in November and December, leading to not all that many at some locations last I checked.  This guard has 2 unique accessories and an exclusive-to-this-release helmet.   I assume you've bought yours.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,456: Poe Dameron (Resistance Pilot, The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, February 19, 2018

While not a dreadful figure, this Poe Dameron repeats the cardinal sin of The Last Jedi 3 3/4-inch action figures.  It's boring.   Hasbro made two new pilot Poe figures for this movie which aren't substantially changed from the 2015 releases.  Is this pack-in pilot worth snagging?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,455: Canto Bight Police (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, February 14, 2018

It's the fuzz!  The Canto Bight Police figure comes with a vehicle that's.... well, it's kind of spare.  The figure looks like something out of 1980, and is generally pretty neat for a generic trooper pilot.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,453: First Order TIE Fighter Pilot (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, February 7, 2018

At Walmart now, the First Order TIE Fighter Pilot (The Last Jedi Line Look)  comes with a slightly modified version of his craft.  Sound chips and a blue symbol set these apart.  Do you need more?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,452: First Order Stormtrooper Executioner (The Black Series 3 3/4-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, February 5, 2018

If you're looking to build an army, the First Order Stormtrooper Executioner (The Black Series 3 3/4-Inch) is pretty good.  Walmart has a super-articulated version of the figure, and Toys R Us has one with a Force Link pack at a higher price.  If you can find this one, get it.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,451: Rey (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, January 31, 2018

Newish! The Rey (The Last Jedi Line Look) comes with a poncho, lightsaber, and blaster - but under it all, she's a lot like the Resistance Rey from 2016, albeit with a new sculpt and fancy sound chip.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,450: Elite Praetorian Guard (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, January 29, 2018

Today we look at the Elite Praetorian Guard (The Black Series 6-Inch)!  In the movie they were awesome - but the figures are a little tough to pose, even with elbow joints.  Should you build an army?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,449: First Order Officer (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, January 24, 2018

Speaking of Toys R Us, their exclusive First Order Officer (The Black Series 6-Inch)  is today's Figure of the Day!  He has a removable cap, tons of articulation, and comes with Admiral Ackbar.  I anticipate you will want to buy this, either now or in the coming weeks while you still can.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,448: BB-8 (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, January 22, 2018

Round! Another BB-8 continues the tradition of not being an individually packaged Hasbro figure as part of a 3-pack!  It talks if you have a Force Link band.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,447: Admiral Ackbar (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, January 17, 2018

If you haven't yet got him, the Admiral Ackbar (The Black Series 6-Inch)  is probably at a Toys R Us near you right now.  He has a cool blaster, an opening mouth, and one of the better alien paint jobs I've seen in a while - I like it.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,445: Rey (Jedi Training, The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, January 10, 2018

The single-carded Rey (Jedi Training, The Last Jedi Line Look)  is a lot like the one in the two-pack - but there are minor difference.  Minor differences.   Do you need them all?  You might, if you're obsessive like so many of us.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,444: First Order Stormtrooper (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, January 8, 2018

In the old days, we'd see the same figure sold for year - now we're getting minor changes not just in the toys, but the movies too.  The First Order Stormtrooper (The Last Jedi Line Look) has a new helmet, a second blaster, and a slightly different pose in addition to its sound chip.  Is it time to build another army?   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,442: Finn (Resistance Fighter, The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, January 1, 2018

Let's start the new year with a figure that's really good, but kind of boring.   Finn (Resistance Fighter) looks a lot like the Jakku version of the hero from the last movie, thanks in part to the hair, blaster, jacket being the same.  The shirt, pants, and boots are new.  It's a good figure and - surprisingly - a lot of slow-to-sell figures seem to be evaporating at my local big box stores.  If you can still find Finn, should you get him?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,441: Poe Dameron (Resistance Pilot, The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, December 27, 2017

Things like this didn't happen for new movies when George was still around.   Poe Dameron (Resistance Pilot, The Last Jedi Line Look)  is a new mold - and that's why I hate it.  If it were a repack, it'd be a repack - an economic necessity.  If you look closely and compare it to The Force Awakens Poe figures, the textures are new, there are changes to the copyright markings, and it has added wrist joints.  But the wrinkles on his uniform are identical. The head sculpt still lacks heroic scruff.   They made an entirely new mold for a figure that the hardcore fan already has two, perhaps three times over. Is it worth buying this individually carded figure?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,440: Rey (The Black Series 6-Inch, Premium Exclusive)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, December 25, 2017

Available at a Toys R Us near you, this  Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,440: Rey (The Black Series 6-Inch, Premium Exclusive) is a wee bit more expensive than will likely make you happy.  She has a planet-specific base that isn't quite true to the movie scenes, but there are die-cast metal accessories and more bruising.  You get a lot of stuff in a nicely-sized box, but is it worth tracking down?   Eh.  Read on!
