Figure of the Day

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,302: Baze Malbus (Rogue One)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, November 7, 2016

Baze Malbus is some sort of weapons expert in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.   The figure was designed accordingly with a massive backpack rocket launcher that may or may not be in the movie.  I have no idea - all I know is that I have this figure in my hands and it looks pretty good.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,301: Sergeant Jyn Erso (Jedha, Rogue One)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 3, 2016

It's Sergeant Jyn Erso (Jedha) from wave 2 of the 3 3/4-inch Rogue One line!  She has a scarf, a blaster, a rocket launcher, and feels like she'd be right at home in the mid-late 1980s "off camera" world of Star Wars toys.   If she couldn't pilot the ATL Interceptor, I don't know who could.   But is she worth picking up - even with appearances in an upcoming gift set and vehicle?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,300: Director Krennic (Rogue One)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, November 2, 2016

Director Krennic is in charge of the whole Death Star construction thing and has a group of hangers-on called Death Troopers.  As such, one might assume he's the new bad guy - the figure turned out fairly well, although maybe the cape isn't exactly what you wanted.   It's still a nice figure.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,299: Jabba's Bartender (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 1, 2016

In the annals of obscurity, many people at many companies worked very hard to bring you the still-nameless Jabba's Bartender astromech droid, in stock now at Entertainment Earth.  It's in Return of the Jedi, and if you can find it you get a prize.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,298: R2-B00 (Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, October 31, 2016

Happy Halloween!  R2-B00 is - or was - at Disney theme parks as I type this for about thirteen spooky dollars.    It'll be a beast to find them now that R2-H16 is shipping.  I bet they'll skeleton of them.  You could say it's pretty ghoul.   Rather than torture more words in this intro, why not read on?

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,297: R3-M2 (Rogue One, Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 27, 2016

And finishing up the 4-pack, it's R3-M2!  This one has a new dome sculpt with a big silver band on the bottom which, unfortunately, helps highlight the inaccuracies of the Hasbro domes for the R3 droids over the past few years.  Well.  I guess we can look to redoing the rest of them.  It's a great figure with wonderful deco, so check it out and read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,296: R2-BHD (Rogue One, Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, October 26, 2016

Silver on silver!  R2-BHD has some nifty deco points, but is a little on the pale side.  It's like the ghost of R2-D2.   You can get it at or near Disney theme parks as I write this, so go ahead and do that were you so inclined.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,295: C2-B5 (Rogue One, Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 25, 2016

It appears Lucasfilm and Disney are going long on C2-B5 - at least three known action figures are available or are in the works so far.   This 3 3/4-inch action figure is available now as part of a Disney parks exclusive Rogue One boxed set - one you can actually buy outside the park in the Downtown Disney compound.  Should you get it?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,294: R5-SK1 (Rogue One, Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, October 24, 2016

It took me longer to grasp than it should have, but I'm pretty sure R5-SK1 is a nod to Skippy, the Jedi Droid.  If you don't know what that is, you missed Star Wars Tales - and that was a fine comic.  This new droid is one of four figures in a new Disney parks exclusive droid pack for Rogue One, where one droid looks like one you probably have, another is coming with a big vehicle later, and the remaining two are seemingly brand new for this set.   If you like droids, this is a good week to be you - we're going to examine the entire set.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,293: Rey (Rogue One)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 20, 2016

New for Rogue One is... Rey?  The super-popular hero of the last film is back with new gear and a new head sculpt - and it's a good one too.  Is it enough to buy the fifth or sixth Rey in your toy box?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,292: Darth Vader (Rogue One)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, October 19, 2016

It's new!  Rarely does a year go by without a new toy of the main character of the saga, so we look forward to Darth Vader (Rogue One).  He's got six points of articulation, a cape, and a rocket launcher shaped like his belt buckle.   I'm loving it.  Will you?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,291: Kanan Jarrus (Stormtrooper Disguise, Rogue One)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 18, 2016

From the new Rogue One line comes the Kanan Jarrus (Stormtrooper Disguise)!   It's a new taller Stormtrooper sculpt with a removable helmet and a wrist launcher for some reason.  It's actually pretty fun - and shortpacked, so get one or more if you see them.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,290: Sabine Wren (Rogue One)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 13, 2016

People love Sabine Wren.  She's selling - I see cases of Rogue One figures at Big Lots or Walmart or what have you, and typically she's the one who's gone.   If you see one, get one - find out why, read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,289: Imperial TIE Fighter Pilot (Rogue One)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, October 12, 2016

This Imperial TIE Fighter Pilot is the one from the TIE Striker - it's a heck of a nice figure and the first 100%-new 3 3/4-inch movie-based Imperial pilot in over a decade.   If they sold this figure individually with various helmet variants, you'd be happy to buy them.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,288: Kylo Ren (Rogue One)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 11, 2016

The new Kylo Ren (Rogue One packaging) is pretty sharp - it's the unmasked figure with a mask. The hood is removable, it has the new pose with new torso and legs, and you're probably going to dig it.  It has a firing projectile launcher too - why?  Because it's fun, that's why.   Read on!
