Figure of the Day

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,084: Snowtrooper (Saga Legends 2014)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, June 5, 2014

Rounding out the new foursome from the great white north, the Snowtrooper is one of those figures you'll be mad you can't get more of.   The split "skirt" lets him sit, but the wide sculpt may make it difficult to cram him in certain vehicles - but he's perfect for filling out your AT-AT's cargo hold.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,083: Darth Maul (Saga Legends 2014)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, June 4, 2014

From Canada, with love!  This new Darth Maul is in stores now - there, not here - and is an all-new sculpt with a flared blade on the lightsaber, if you keep tabs on such things.  He can fit in the Sith Infiltrator vehicle, stand, and fight.  Can you ask for more? Probably, but you won't get it for the price.  Read on

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,082: Luke Skywalker (Saga Legends 2014)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, June 3, 2014

While my flight continues to not board me, why not read about Luke Skywalker? This new 2014 Saga Legends figure is a new sculpt in Canada right now.  Is it worth the loonies?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,081: Obi-Wan Kenobi (Saga Legends 2014)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, June 2, 2014

We're back! (A Dinosaur's story.)  This Obi-Wan Kenobi is today's Star Wars Figure of the Day!  It just hit Canada and, so far, seemingly nowhere else.  This wave's absence from store shelves and online pre-sells is conspicuous so far, but thankfully a kind soul managed to help me get a set to show all of you. 

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,080: Merumeru (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, January 17, 2014

It's hiatus time again! But first - meet Merumeru, a Wookiee warrior that is a stunningly great improvement over previous Wookiee warriors.  At first glance I thought it was a tweaked version of a previous figure, but I was wrong!  It's really good.  Go get one. Read on

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,079: Clone Commander Neyo (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, January 16, 2014

FOTD is going on break after this week, but we've still got Clone Commander Neyo and one more figure to go!  He's not perfect, but it's a superior update for the character and as an added bonus, he included some TV Clone Wars detailing on his face.  Even more surprising, Hasbro retooled the back of his armor to look distinctive and different from the other Clones.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,078: Vizam (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, January 15, 2014

It's new! There was a previous version a few years back, but Vizam the Nikto brings us another update from the 6-joint era!  It's nice, it has a helmet, and it has another cool clamp-on cannon for the Sail Barge Hasbro will never make.  Aren't you lucky?  Read on

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,077: Darth Plagueis (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, January 14, 2014

Sith happens! Aside from a brief mention in Revenge of the Sith, the design, character, and general sense of Darth Plagueis can be described as being very very dark in his costuming and quite well constructed.  Is he important?  Well, that's up to you.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,076: Mace Windu (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, January 13, 2014

A re-retool, the new The Black Series Mace Windu takes the 30th Anniversary/Vintage Collection figure body, give him new arms and a new head, and presto - improved figure!  The wrist movement is about perfect, and I dig the new elements a lot.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,075: Chewbacca (Mission Series 2013)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, January 3, 2014

Let's finish up the latest wave of Mission Series with the new Chewbacca, which is a mixed bag.  This is a good toy with a couple of fixable problems, should Hasbro decide to correct the fur color or add a single dab of glue to the bowcaster.   Read on

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,074: Han Solo (Mission Series 2013)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, January 2, 2014

NEW! And old.  Mission Series Han Solo is a pretty good toy, although you may not be crazy about him as a collectible.  Hasbro mercifully dropped the dangling separate holster, which allows this figure to actually sit in your Millennium Falcon without much of a problem.  Even though Chewie is kind of gnarly, get this set if you can.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,073: R2-D2 (Mission Series 2013)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, January 1, 2014

Happy New Year! Let's look at the new R2-D2 that comes with C-3PO in the latest wave of Mission Series 2-packs that you can lie to yourself and say you're "skipping" when you probably haven't seen them for sale yet.  This astromech droid is based on the R4-P44 Saga Legends mold, with far fewer paint applications.  He's cute, but in all seriousness, he needs at least one or two more painted panels.  Read on

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,072: C-3PO (Mission Series 2013)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 31, 2013

New sculpt!  This C-3PO has 5 points of articulation, comes with R2-D2, and costs $10.  It isn't shiny like the $10 Vintage figure from 2004, but it has a better sculpt and the same amount of articulation.  I don't understand, either.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,071: Obi-Wan Kenobi (Mission Series 2013)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, December 30, 2013

New deco and new arms! Obi-Wan Kenobi has been given a "realistic" figure based on his later Clone Wars appearances for Mission Series.  He comes with the Darth Maul we looked at last week, and is arguably a better figure than his predecessor. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,070: Darth Maul (Mission Series 2013)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, December 27, 2013

Here is the Section Saga Legends.  Your bonus points is 4.   Let's try the Section Mission Series! 

Darth Maul gets a pretty dang good figure - it's not what you've expected from The Black Series, but it's a delightful mutant figure that feels like it belongs in your 1984 toy box with other Jabba thugs!  It's wonderful.  He has 5 points of articulation and a lightsaber, but my guess is most of you won't like him.  Me?  I love it.  Read on
