Figure of the Day

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,248: Stormtrooper Officer (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, November 30, 2015

Amazon's 6-inch First Order Stormtrooper Officer adds a shoulder pauldron to the figure previously sold at Comic-Con and in fine stores everywhere.  Is it enough to warrant buying again?  Well, it's in a swell boxed set, so I'm leaning toward yes.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,247: R2-H15 (Disney Park Exclusive)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, November 27, 2015

If you missed it, the R2-H15 is new!  It just came out and is showing up at Disney's theme park in Anaheim for about $13.  (Thanks for getting me this one, Matt!)   Is it worth it?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,246: Imperial Shock Trooper (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 26, 2015

I'm pretty stoked whenever we get a Stormtrooper with marks of some sort, so last week's Walmart-only Imperial Shock Trooper was a treat.   The mold is good, and the Shocktrooper markings from the Battlefront game make it even cooler.  Want to know more?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,245: Darth Vader (Emperor's Wrath, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, November 25, 2015

Fresh from the drug store chain, Darth Vader (Emperor's Wrath) is out and about with improved armor deco, a retooled arm, and a new head.   It's a decent figure - but it's still basically the same Vader from last year with a few modifications.   Want to see more about this 6-inch figure?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,244: Poe Dameron (The Force Awakens X-Wing)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 24, 2015

From Walmart's white and blue X-Wing, the Poe Dameron (The Force Awakens X-Wing) brings you the figure from the Armor Up release body sculpt with a different head - complete with dedicated helmet.  In addition to the X-Wing, he's also got a blaster - is this enough to warrant your cash assuming you can find it?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,243: Imperial Stormtrooper (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, November 23, 2015

If you pre-ordered or ordered in a brief window 2 weeks ago, you got this Imperial Stormtrooper from Amazon's exclusive four figure boxed set.  The 6-inch figure is basically the same as a regular Stormtrooper, with more black marks on his record and armor.   It's not bad!  It's not fancy, but it's neat.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,242: Clone Trooper Commander (Phase I, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, November 20, 2015

Behold, the Clone Trooper Commander!  This 6-inch figure is part of Amazon's (at least temporarily) sold-out boxed set tracing the evolution of the troopers over 6 of the 7 movies.   This one is, like the others, exclusive to the set - you won't find this deco elsewhere in this size.   Get one if you can, and read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,241: Clone Trooper (Phase II, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 19, 2015

Check out the 6-inch Clone Trooper (Phase II), complete with the revised bucket we've all been dying for - and some other changes.   A few deco points were altered from the previous releases, so this one is actually distinctive beyond just the helmet.  (But not by much.)  Should you snag this item next time Amazon restocks it for a decent price?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,240: Poe Dameron (Flight Suit 6-Inch Black Series, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, November 18, 2015

Don't (or do) miss Poe Dameron!  This 6-inch pilot figure has a great sculpt with lots of wonderful detail, but strange ankles and stranger face deco.  If you leave the helmet on, it isn't bad - the swappable fists are a nice touch.  But do you need this one?   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,238: First Order Snowtrooper Officer (6-Inch Black Series, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, November 16, 2015

I haven't seen the First Order Snowtrooper Officer in stores since I got mine last month, but hey - it's new!  This exclusive takes a plain Snowtrooper (which isn't out yet) and adds a pauldron, thus making it a better figure than the regular release is likely to be.  If you can get it, it's pretty slick - so good hunting.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,237: Flametrooper (Armor, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, November 13, 2015

The armored Flametrooper has neat armor but weird weapon integration - you can't quite plug in the backpack or torch.   Is it worth paying up to get the orange body armor with First Order symbols?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,236: First Order Snowtrooper (The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 12, 2015

Check out the First Order Snowtrooper.  It's not bad - nice gun, decent sculpt, and for some reason space Wolverine claws for cosplay purposes.  Is it worth adding to your growing army, or is it time to admit the grim, bony fingers reaching from the grave have deprived you of the joy you once experienced from toys as a child?   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,234: Boba Fett (Armor, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 10, 2015

You love this guy.  You'll like this figure.   Boba Fett comes with clamp-on armor that feels like it fell out of a 1992 Kenner sketchbook - it's ugly, and it's neat.  You may love it! You may not.  That's up to you.  I think it's neat enough to share with you, so read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,233: Luke Skywalker (Armor, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, November 9, 2015

Today in Figure of the Day: Luke Skywalker!  Loosely inspired by the Sandstorm Scene and whatever was in the water at Kenner in the late 1980s, this Armor Up version of the Jedi Knight features the same sculpt and lightsaber from last year, but with wacky wrappings, belts, and a backpack for reasons nobody will ever truly understand.  Is it worth the $13? Of course not - but it's weird and fun anyway, so read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,232: Goss Toowers (The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, November 6, 2015

Meet Goss Toowers - the Resistance's famous mechanic.  Dig him up and shake his hand, and then wonder just what role he plays in the movie.  He's got awesome metallic gloves and a spiffy helmet, but is he a character or is he just scenery?  We'll find out soon, but until then we can look at the figure and squint.  Read on!
