Figure of the Day

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,525: R2-X2 (Red Squadron, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 16, 2018

It's not exactly on model, but R2-X2 (Red Squadron, The Black Series 6-Inch)  has some admirable parts.  It's big - and that's cool! The dirt is awesome! But the dome is the wrong color, as far as can be told when comparing it to previous releases in other sizes and formats.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,524: R2-D2 (Red Squadron, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 11, 2018

Amazon's R2-D2 (Red Squadron, The Black Series 6-Inch) is pretty good - but it lacks most of the cool extra gear from the clean, single releases.  It's still pretty cool and filthy, though.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,523: Qi'ra (Corellia, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 9, 2018

This Qi'ra (Corellia, The Black Series 6-Inch) may or may not be in a store near you - Han is around, but she seems to disappear.  It's a great figure with excellent sculpted detail and a pretty good portrait, so if you finally got off your butt and saw the movie maybe you're in the mood to buy some action figures now.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,522: Clone Commander Wolffe (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 4, 2018

Check out Clone Commander Wolffe, a shared exclusive that started showing up over the summer. You might see it at Barnes & Noble, GameStop, or Disney Stores - or not, if it sold.  The new head looks great.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,521: Admiral Piett (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 2, 2018

A new figure with a lot of shared parts, the Admiral Piett (The Black Series 6-Inch) will go nicely with your General Veers.  The former is shared onlnie, the latter is now hitting a Walgreens theoretically near you.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,520: R5-D8 (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 27, 2018

Amazon's exclusive R5-D8 (The Black Series 6-Inch) is unlike previous versions of this specific droid.  Previous representations usually look a lot like R5-D4, with the blue arm panels.  Some even have yellow stripes in the red columns on the chest.  This one is colored almost exactly like the 1979 Kenner R4-D4, which doesn't mean that it necessarily matches the on-screen droid that served Jek Porkins - but there's not a lot of reference, either.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,519: 4-LOM (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 25, 2018

The 4-LOM (The Black Series 6-Inch) brings you another bounty hunter in the oh-so-popular larger scale - and the head is clear green, so shine a light through that for double-plus fun.   It includes a blaster.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,518: Princess Leia Organa (Hoth, Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 20, 2018

She's new! Well, newish. The Princess Leia Organa (Hoth) is one of precious few new "classic" figures this year - and she has articulated boots!  And a weird blaster.  But hey, it's a new Leia - we don't get many of those.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,517: R2-F1P (Droid Factory Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 18, 2018

From Disney, it's R2-F1P!  It looks a lot like other droids you've bought over the years, but it's slightly different.  Exciting is hardly the word I would use, but it's one more droid for your shelf.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,516: R5-232 (Droid Factory Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 13, 2018

One of the many figures you forgot existed and won't realize you don't have until 5 years from now, Disney's R5-232 (Droid Factory Line Look) can be bought right now.  It has a new restraining bolt, but otherwise is just a fancy redeco of a mold you've had access to for quite some time.  It's still one of the more interesting droids in this set based on Solo: A Star Wars StoryRead on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,515: Enfys Nest (Swoop Bike, Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 11, 2018

Packed with her Swoop Bike, this Enfys Nest action figure looks great!  There's no removable helmet, but the sci-fi meets local flavor costume combines armor, fur, and a cape to bring to life a Zorro-like mantle that could be handed down and return in later installments. It's a pretty good figure with a pretty nice bike.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,514: Stormtrooper (Mimban, AT-DT, Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 6, 2018

The Stormtrooper (Mimban, AT-DT) is really cool and comes with one of the best Hasbro 3 3/4-inch scale vehicles in recent memory - it explodes!   The figure doesn't, though - it's just a nice trooper that you'll wish you could easily build into your armies, and you can't.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,513: Han Solo (Kessel Run Millennium Falcon, Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 4, 2018

The Han Solo (Kessel Run Millennium Falcon) may be popping up in a playset later this year - we'll need to wait and see how many changes they make - but you can get get it with a rather small Falcon right now!  The figure isn't bad - it's as Kenner-y as anything we've had in recent years.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,511: R2-S8 (Droid Factory Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, August 28, 2018

The Solo 4-pack is pretty hit and miss with two fairly interesting robots and two that do not impress.  The R2-S8 (Droid Factory Line Look) is my favorite in the set - not only is it black and white and red all over, but there's weird and colorful writing on the dome.  It's good!  You should get this one.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,510: Gamorrean Guard (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, August 23, 2018

Target's exclusive Gamorrean Guard (The Black Series 6-Inch) has an opening mouth - and I'm having a lot of fun with that.   Use any food you may have to engage your toy and also be mad that you can't find one, because it's awesome, and I'd love to get 1 or 2 more of these.  Read on!
