Figure of the Day

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,644: Shadow Trooper (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 5, 2019

It's the Shadow Trooper (The Vintage Collection)! It's the Blackhole Stormtrooper I always wanted - they can call it what they want, but this is about as Russ Manning as these things get.  He has extra parts, too!  Read on.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,643: Darth Vader (Galaxy of Adventures 5-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 3, 2019

It's Darth Vader (Galaxy of Adventures 5-Inch)! He's big and chunky, and in that new scale and style that won't match your other toys - it's cool, though.  Provided you aren't overwhelmed in desk figures, this is a good one. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,642: Darth Vader (The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 28, 2019

Millions have been produced over the years, but there was enough demand that Hasbro made more of Darth Vader (The Retro Collection) in a new format for 2019.  The texture and feel is a little different, and there's a slight difference in the chest paint - and of course, the copyright markings are changed.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,641: Luke Skywalker (Yavin, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 26, 2019

You can find the Luke Skywalker (Yavin, The Vintage Collection)  in stores or order online, as it's a Walmart exclusive! I would recommend getting the figure in store - it's the Luke of Theseus with a new head and a few other changes from previous releases.  It just doesn't s hip well in an unprotected plastic sack.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,640: R4 Astromech (Color-Changing Droids, Droid Factory, Galaxy's Edge)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 21, 2019

The R4 Astromech (Color-Changing Droids, Droid Factory, Galaxy's Edge) is pretty amazing.  When warm, it's a white and green R4 unit. When chilled, it's black.  In between it looks like it's an oily, used mess - it's really impressive.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,639: CZ Protocol Droid (Color-Changing Droids, Droid Factory, Galaxy's Edge)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 19, 2019

It's not really an exaggeration to say a lot of 3 3/4-inch figure products aren't being given any sort of announcement.  This is especially true of many of the Disney theme park figures, like this one.   I didn't know about this CZ Protocol Droid (Color-Changing Droids, Droid Factory, Galaxy's Edge)  until it popped up on eBay and my pal Shannon got me its 4-pack, the other 4-pack, and a Droid Factory playset with the color-change droids on his next visit to Disneyland. (Thank you, Shannon!)  The figure mold is nothing new, but the color-change paint is quite impressive.  In warm temperatures, it's white, when it gets cold, it turns red.  And it looks sort of like a crab leg if you touch it.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,638: Wedge Antilles (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 14, 2019

It's Luke with a new head, but Wedge Antilles (The Black Series 6-Inch)  is pretty good.  You get a great portrait, a blaster, a helmet, and possibly the wrong haircut.  It's hard to know for sure - but you can read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,637: The Mandalorian (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 12, 2019

The show is on today - I haven't seen it yet - but The Mandalorian (The Black Series 6-Inch) is a figure you can get now! It's armored, you can see some Scarif Trooper armor, and it looks cool.   The coloring looks like something that would fit in with Jabba's entourage, but for now he'll just wander the shelves.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,636: Supreme Leader Kylo Ren (Galaxy of Adventures 5-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 7, 2019

Available in a 2-pack at Target with an unmasked head, this Supreme Leader Kylo Ren (Galaxy of Adventures 5-Inch)  is pretty great.  Complete with lightsaber and cloak, he can slash and cut and fight and do all the crazy things you want him to do.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,635: Rey (Galaxy of Adventures 5-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 5, 2019

The newish Rey (Galaxy of Adventures 5-Inch) is probably on a peg in a store near you, which is wrong, it should be in your house.  She's loaded with articulation, the paint job is fantastic, and there are good accessories and a working blaster holster.  And she's only ten bucks.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,634: D-O (Galaxy of Adventures 5-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 31, 2019

Now available and pretty easy to find, the D-O (Galaxy of Adventures 5-Inch) comes as part of a pretty good 3-pack.  It's the smallest figure in the set, complete with an articulated neck and hair.  As of now the 3 3/4-inch D-O is exclusive to a Disney parks gift set - so should you get this cheaper and easier to find set instead? Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,633: Maz Kanata (Holographic, Solo: A Star Wars Story line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 29, 2019

Today let's look at that under-distributed Maz Kanata Holographic figure sold in a 5-pack that seemed to show up more in Europe than the USA.  It's Maz, but clear blue.  It'll go great with your Mirage, Cobra Commander, and Darth Vader holographic figures... and maybe your clear blue Glyos figures and 90 other clear blue guys.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,632: Emperor Palpatine (with Throne, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 24, 2019

The Amazon-exclusive Emperor Palpatine (with Throne, The Black Series 6-Inch)  is pretty cool. With better paint and more gear than the 2013 release, it also costs about twice as much - but with the alternate heads and hands, it's worth it.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,631: R5-BOO19 (Droid Factory Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 22, 2019

New this year - and probably gone soon - is this glow in the dark R5-BOO19 (Droid Factory Line Look).    It's a black droid with white glow paint, so you'll want to get it if you missed the previous, now expensive glow astromech.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,630: Zuckuss (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 17, 2019

Debuting at Disney Stores last year, the Zuckuss (The Black Series 6-Inch)  is around a few more places now - and it's pretty great.  It might also be on clearance if you can find it.  He has a blaster and a nifty "coat" over the plastic body, and of course he's a little bit shorter than some other Black Series releases.  Read on!
