Figure of the Day

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,755: Teebo (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 26, 2020

I know why you're thankful. Ewoks!  Hasbro finally made one in the 6-inch line with Teebo (The Black Series 6-Inch) who shares tooling with Paploo - and we'll look at him next year probably. (Hey, it's a big slate.)   With extra weapons and one of his two hoods, this figure manages to touch on a lot of what made the movie suit and Kenner's old figure great.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,754: Yoda (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 24, 2020

This Yoda (The Black Series 6-Inch) is very tiny and has a bonus second head - also a Luke packaged with it.  You should probably get this 2-pack because Luke has exclusive gear in this pack, which makes the $40 price tag a bit easier to swallow.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,753: General Hux (Celebrate the Saga)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 19, 2020

You're probably ignoring Best Buy's exclusive General Hux (Celebrate the Saga) figure, and that's a shame.  It has one of the very best human likenesses in any of Hasbro's lines, with deco superior to just about anything else at this size.  It's in a boxed set with First Order troopers (and Phasma) too.  Get it while you can.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,752: Clone Trooper (Lieutenant, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 17, 2020

If you are going to Walgreenses, you might be on the lookout for this Clone Trooper (Lieutenant, The Black Series 6-Inch) which uses the sculpt from a few years ago - and not the new 2020 model.  It matches the other troopers you've probably already bought. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,751: Jabba the Hutt (Barge pack-in, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 12, 2020

It took me forever to open my Sail  Barge, but inside it had Jabba the Hutt (Barge pack-in, The Vintage Collection) - which has mostly excellent paint. The eyes have some weird black lines, but the body and head are amazing with some of the best painted Jabba detail to date.  Not bad for a repaint of a Jabba from The Black Series Rancor Pit sit that you already forgot existed.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,750: Jango Fett (Gaming Greats, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 10, 2020

This is a good example of a reissue, with changes.  While the unmasked face is a tad on the glossy side, the deco and new backpack on Jango Fett (Gaming Greats, The Black Series 6-Inch) are improved.  It's closer to the first appearance in Attack of the Clones, but not perfect - and it's different enough from the previous release that I don't mind having it.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,749: Clone Trooper (Kamino, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 5, 2020

A new mold! You didn't ask for it, but instead of just a straight repaint the Clone Trooper (Kamino, The Black Series 6-Inch) is entirely new - and in some cases  better, and in some cases not.  The limbs no longer have visible pins, which is good - but the elbow and knee armor is a little strange now that it's a separate rubbery piece. The helmet is an actual helmet with a slug head underneath too, leading to some misshapen helmets.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,748: The Mandalorian (Beskar Armor, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 3, 2020

Complete with signet and jet pack, The Mandalorian (Beskar Armor, The Black Series 6-Inch) matches his look at the end of season one and, so far, the beginning of season two.   It's a retool of the first figure from 2019, but there's enough different that you're going to want one.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,747: Darth Vader (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, October 30, 2020

Sold in both 40th anniversary packaging and the new standard The Black Series boxes, Darth Vader (The Black Series 6-Inch) is partially new parts and partially old parts from a few years ago.  No respect, I swear.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,746: Heavy Battle Droid (Gaming Greats, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 29, 2020

If you like repaints with extra guns, this Heavy Battle Droid (Gaming Greats, The Black Series 6-Inch) is perfect.  Complete with Imperial and First Order tech, this uniquely painted Trade Federation trooper is just a little bit more interesting than your average droid. And as a GameStop exclusive, it's sold out unless they somehow find more in a bin somewhere. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,745: BB-Series Droid (BB-8-style droid, black and silver body, black and silver head)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, October 28, 2020

A mishmash of droid parts, the BB-Series Droid (BB-8-style droid, black and silver body, black and silver head) adds the black repaint you know you want in your stash. Presumably.  Black repaints of robots are a proud tradition and a sub-collection you'll find in many other toy lines, but are generally found overseas.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,744: BB-Series Droid (BB-9-style droid, red and silver body, white and red head)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 27, 2020

Now disappearing from Target is this exclusive BB-Series Droid (BB-9-style droid, red and silver body, white and red head) as part of a two-pack. It's cool! It's small. But it's not delicious - it may look like fruit, but it's a robot.  Don't make the same mistake as some guy I just made up. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,743: Luke Skywalker (Dagobah, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, October 23, 2020

Available in 40th anniversary packaging or in a 2-pack with Yoda, this Luke Skywalker (Dagobah, The Black Series 6-Inch) is a good one.   The articulation is well-integrated, the accessories are well-selected, and the price of the two-pack is, well, high.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,742: R2-Series Astromech Droid (R2-Series silver dome with purple, white body with purple, bartender)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 22, 2020

It's a R2-Series Astromech Droid (R2-Series silver dome with purple, white body with purple, bartender)!  Why? No idea.  This makes four flavors of drink droid, and as far as I know this one has no precedent in the movies, cartoons, comics, or games. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,741: BB-BOO20 (Droid Factory Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, October 21, 2020

While we wait to find out what this year's holiday exclusive is - if there is one - we can look at the other holiday exclusive, BB-BOO20 (Droid Factory Line Look)!  It's a little pumpkin.  It's cute, and you can order it online for around $20 shipped. It's more than the $13 at the theme parks, but you're probably not going to the theme parks. Read on!
