By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, December 13, 2017

Disney's exclusive BB-4 (Droid Factory Line Look)  gives us a glimpse at the new movie that opens tomorrow.  So soon?  Yes.   Anyway, what's his deal? I don't really know yet, but I look forward to finding out.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,435: Luke Skywalker (Jedi Exile, The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, December 11, 2017

This is the week you've been waiting for!   The Last Jedi debuts in just a couple of days, and Luke Skywalker (Jedi Exile) is in stores now, possibly.  You'll hear Luke Skywalker speak for the first time in 34 years, so what could possibly be on his mind?  Hopefully he won't be complaining about this new action figure, as it's pretty great.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,434: Emperor Palpatine (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, December 8, 2017

While single carded samples of Emperor Palpatine (The Last Jedi Line Look)  have surfaced, right now you can only get him in the set at Target - and it's a winner.  While the robes prevent seating, it's a stunning design with great swappable hands and above-par sculpting.  I hope you got one.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,433: Luke Skywalker (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, December 6, 2017

Exclusive to Target, this Luke Skywalker (The Last Jedi Line Look) is another new sculpt - the head is good, the colors aren't bad, and he has wrist joints.  Color me surprised!  It's sold with a new Emperor and Royal Guard, so the set is a winner.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,431: Jyn Erso (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, December 1, 2017

Until The Last Jedi comes out, we're doing 3 Figure of the Days per week!  This is Jyn Erso from the 2018 line - she has a sound chip!  But she doesn't have the rocket launcher.  She's very similar to last year's figure, but there are differences.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,430: R2-D2 (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, November 29, 2017

Check out R2-D2 (The Last Jedi Line Look)!  It's a build-a-droid mold, with a sound chip, and some new rockets.  It's a pretty cool figure for the asking price - I haven't seen one in stores yet, but you may find them online.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,429: Luke Skywalker (The Black Series, 6-Inch, Centerpiece)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, November 27, 2017

It's sort of a statue, it's kind of an action figure, and it might be on markdown at your local big box store right now - despite having been released in September.  The Luke Skywalker (The Black Series, 6-Inch, Centerpiece) has interchangable base parts in addition to a fantastic sculpt with exceptional paintwork.  Should you buy one?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,428: Shoretrooper Captain (Rogue One Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, November 22, 2017

There aren't many toys of the Shoretrooper Captain (Rogue One Line Look)  available in the USA - he's got a lot of blue and is packed with Bistan.  Is it worth getting this cool trooper and his space monkey pal?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,427: Bistan (Rogue One Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, November 20, 2017

Better late than never - and Bistan was pretty close to "never."   I'm really happy Bistan got out as a special thing, as everybody deserves a cool new alien space monkey action figure with a new Stormtrooper.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,425: BB-8 (Droid Factory Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, November 13, 2017

One good droid deserves another - the BB-8 (Droid Factory Line Look) is a newish mold!   He's bigger than Hasbro's, but the deco is different - not better, not worse.  Neither seems truly superior, but this one is bigger and a little bit more adorable thanks to the eye seeming to have more life in it.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,424: 2BB-2 (Droid Factory Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, November 8, 2017

Not from Hasbro!  Disney's 2BB-2 (Droid Factory Line Look) is pretty slick and, for some reason, have the lettering backward.  Go figure.  It's a neat robot that looks kind of like a globe of Earth.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,423: Darth Vader (The Black Series, 6-Inch, Centerpiece)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, November 6, 2017

You may have seen big displays of these in September, and now they seem to have dried up.  But why?  The Darth Vader (The Black Series, 6-Inch, Centerpiece) lights up and has places to put Stormtroopers while the Sith Lord tears down this wall.  It lights up, too.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,422: Kylo Ren (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, November 1, 2017

The new Kylo Ren is a 3 3/4-inch figure available in multiple configurations - this one is sold carded, with a cape, and has a painted scar on his face.  It's probably the best of these, unless he's also going to come out with the "space bandage" we saw in the movie trailer later.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,420: Yoda (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, October 25, 2017

What's kind of fascinating in the Disney era is that most figures look  better than ever.   Great sculpting and top-notch detail are the norm with very few exceptions, and this Yoda from the CG prequel design is possibly the very best one we've ever seen on that design.  The eyes have a subtle outline, the shoulders are able to move outward, plus he has both a cane and a lightsaber.  It seems like this is the figure most likely to sell out too - so get one if you see it. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,419: Captain Phasma (6-Inch Value Figure, The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, October 23, 2017

While C-3PO would fill in on your The Black Series shelves nicely, the value version of Captain Phasma might not.  She's about a head shorter, but as a standalone figure she's pretty cool for the asking price.   Phasma has a cape and a blaster, based on her The Force Awakens look - so no new spear here.   Read on!
