Figure of the Day

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,410: Snoke (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, September 20, 2017

After a long wait, we got a figure of Snoke (The Last Jedi Line Look)!   He comes in a big playset, but if you don't want to buy the playset a super-articulated version is coming in the new Vintage line next year.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,409: Han Solo (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, September 18, 2017

Packaged with Boba Fett in a two-pack, this Han Solo (The Last Jedi Line Look) is in stores now.  I'm willing to make that bet because stores seem to have a lot of these - but they're neat.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,408: Jyn Erso (Forces of Destiny)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, September 13, 2017

I wasn't sure what to make of Jyn Erso (Forces of Destiny) when it showed up, but it's pretty good.  The "adventure figure" as Hasbro calls them stands well, can hold her accessories, and has pretty great articulation given what we usually see from dolls for girls.   It may not be for you, but it's a nifty and largely well-made product.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,407: Resistance Pilot Tallie (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, September 11, 2017

Coming with the first-ever figure scale blue A-Wing Fighter, Resistance Pilot Tallie is awesome.  We think.  We don't know what she does in the movie yet, but she's nifty with a non-removable helmet.  I like her!  I like her ship, too. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,406: Boba Fett (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, September 8, 2017

It's a new sculpt Boba Fett!  He's based on his The Empire Strikes Back deco, and so far looks pretty great.  He's skinnier than some, with a good helmet and a rocket pack you can mount on his rocket pack.  Check it out - read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,405: C-3PO (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 7, 2017

So, here's C-3PO!  He's new.  It's not obvious.  The pose is different from some recent gold protocol droids, plus he's got that whole Force Link thing on his foot.   As the new line goes, given that he has no accessories, this may be the least interesting new figure.  Still, I bought one.  Why?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,404: Darth Vader (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, September 6, 2017

It's Star Wars so of course there's a new Darth Vader - this time packaged with the Probe Droid.  It's packed 1 per carton of 4 toys, the other 3 being Rathtars, so these tend to sell out quickly.  Particularly since it's the first new Original Trilogy thing in a while.  Should you get one?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,403: Luke Skywalker (Jedi Master, The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 5, 2017

After an absence of new figures for The Force Awakens, the original trilogy's main hero gets not one, but three known 3 3/4-inch scale action figures for The Last Jedi so far!  The Luke Skywalker (Jedi Master) is in stores now and you might even be able to find it at a store near you this week.  Should you track him down?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,402: Bala-Tik (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, September 4, 2017

Two years later is better than never!   Bala-Tik made it as a pack-in for the just-released-last-weekend Rathtar creature.  He has a blaster and he talks - he also screams.   The design turned out fairly well, and you can probably find him at a store near you as I type this.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,401: Rathtar (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, September 3, 2017

Hasbro's new Star Wars line - where it doesn't mention the new movie by name anywhere on the packaging - really does span the whole saga.  I found a new sculpt (and stunning) 1977-style Obi-Wan Kenobi on Saturday, and they also pay tribute to some cool stuff from The Force Awakens, as there is much that would still make a good toy.  We got a Rathtar!   He can eat figures.   He can make superbly cool and gross noises on the Force Link band.  Unfortunately, his tentacles can pop out easily, and he's basically a potato with a mouth.  I like it - it comes with a cool figure.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,400: Chewbacca with Porg (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, September 1, 2017

Day #2400! Why am I still doing this?   Just released this week, let's look at Chewbacca with Porg. The figure is awesome.  The animal buddy is awesome.  The bowcaster may be Hasbro's worst, as it falls apart if it touches anything.  Bring glue, but do give this figure a look - it's sturdy otherwise.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,399: Imperial Probe Droid (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, August 31, 2017

It begins!  The first figure I cracked open from Force Friday II was the Imperial Probe Droid.  It's the first all-new Probot in nearly 20 years, and it's a nice one with a better integrated rocket, a superior sculpt, nifty Force Link sounds, and a clear display stand.  And more articulation.  And glossy plastic bits.  It's just better - read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,398: Vendor Droid (Black, Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, August 23, 2017

The glossy Vendor Droid (Black, Droid Factory) is available in Flordia now, and it's pretty sharp.  It's shiny, it's not something we've seen in a movie or TV show yet, and it looks like it could belong on the Death Star playset you'll probably never get.  But I digress.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,397: Galen Erso (Rogue One)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, August 21, 2017

Let's look at Rogue One's Galen Erso, a figure you never saw in stores.  Maybe you ordered it online - if so, good on you.  You got a mouse droid, a zipline, and a blaster.   That ain't bad.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,396: Luke Skywalker (SDCC Landspeeder, The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, August 16, 2017

Fresh from Comic-Con, this Landspeeder version of Luke Skywalker has a poncho, a hat, and that landspeeder.  It's cool!  It has a new head sculpt too.  Read on!
