Figure of the Day

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,597: Resistance A-Wing Pilot (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, June 25, 2019

This is the Resistance A-Wing Pilot from The Last Jedi red A-Wing Fighter.  She has a new head!  It's not just a repaint!  Granted, you'll have to squint to discover this.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,596: Hondo Ohnaka (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, June 20, 2019

New from Disney's Galaxy's Edge, Hondo Ohnaka (The Black Series 6-Inch)  is one of the few all-new characters in the $69.99 Hasbro figure boxed sets.   He has a blaster and a costume that's similar to - but not identicial to - those in The Clone Wars and Rebels.  Do you need it? Of course not - but you'll want one.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,595: Poe Dameron (Resistance line look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, June 18, 2019

This Poe Dameron (Resistance line look) is a weird gem.  If you like 1978-1985 Kenner figures, Poe is essential.  He's thinner and fits in your X-Wings without a fuss - even better than The Force Awakens movie figures.  This is an action figure made to fit in vehicles, so naturally there are no Hasbro Resistance vehicles.  Just make the most out of your movie ones.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,594: 41st Elite Corps Clone Trooper (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, June 13, 2019

More than just a repack, the 41st Elite Corps Clone Trooper (The Vintage Collection)  adds another variant to The Black Series 3 3/4-inch figure from a few years ago. With the more realistic face paint and tons more grey markings, this is different enough to upgrade.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,593: Han Solo (Carbonite, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, June 11, 2019

Weirdly this 2019 reissue of Han Solo (Carbonite, The Vintage Collection) did not get Hasbro's fancy new face painting.  Rather, it got a playset, a vintage cardback, and a magnet in the back of the carbonite block.  All in all, still a worthy purchase.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,592: Han Solo (Stormtrooper, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, June 6, 2019

Also at Target in the clothing section this week is Han Solo (Stormtrooper, The Vintage Collection) which seems to be a retooled Sandtrooper from 2009 with an all-new head.  The hair seems to be a separately molded piece, and the new-style face paint makes this an even better Harrison Ford portrait.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,591: Luke Skywalker (Stormtrooper, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, June 4, 2019

At a Target near you - most likely near Menswear, possibly near golf stuff and BBQ tongs - is this pretty great Luke Skywalker (Stormtrooper, The Black Series 6-Inch)  upgrade.  We first saw the head sculpt previewed at HasCon in a diorama with no real fanfare, and now we have it on the Stormtrooper Luke body complete with commlink, whiter plastic armor, and a lot of dirt.  Let's say it's dirt.  Let's not think about what brown smudges in a space station's sewer really are.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,590: Han Solo (Echo Base, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, May 30, 2019

With a new head, this Han Solo (Echo Base, The Vintage Collection)  is probably worth a look.  Harrison Ford never looked  better, is what I would like to say, but the just-released Stormtrooper one is even better.  This is still plenty good.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,589: Imperial TIE Fighter Pilot (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, May 28, 2019

While it still doesn't have ankle joints, the ship of Theseus that is the 2004 version of this figure begets the Imperial TIE Fighter Pilot (The Vintage Collection)!  Packed with a big-wing TIE Fighter, the helmet is glued to the molded-in-black head and has unique deco.  So, add one to your armies if you're so inclined.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,588: Grand Moff Tarkin (The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, May 23, 2019

Hasbro tricked you into buying a 42-year-old board game you didn't want so you could own the Grand Moff Tarkin (The Retro Collection).  It's appropriately old-school feeling, and you can see it borrows elements from the Imperial Commander figure from The Empire Strikes Back line. They even left the gloved hands and painted them in a flesh color, with some modifications to the right hand's fingers to better grip a gun.  Hasbro did a good job here - should you run out and buy it?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,587: Princess Leia Organa (Hoth, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, May 21, 2019

The 2019 Princess Leia Organa (Hoth, The Vintage Collection) is an improvement from the 2010 release.  The head has been given the new face-printing technology and she has a less-pale fleshtone.  The outfit is cleaned up with no layer of dirt or grime on it.  Also, you can probably order it online right now.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,586: Luke Skywalker (Endor, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, May 16, 2019

This new Luke Skywalker (Endor, The Vintage Collection)  is the 2010 figure with new packaging and new paint on the head.  Other than that, it's pretty simialr to what you got a long time ago - are things like improved lips and eyes worth the upgrade?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,585: Mace Windu (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, May 14, 2019

It's Mace Windu (The Black Series 6-Inch)!  Not only did Hasbro make a good figure with a great sculpt, but we got cloth Jedi robes that are actually pretty good.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,584: Han Solo (Mimban, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, May 9, 2019

It's time to see Han Solo (Mimban, The Black Series 6-Inch) from that movie you probably still need to see.  He has a helmet, cape, goggles, blaster, and at least mine has one bum elbow.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,583: Dryden Vos (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, May 7, 2019

This Dryden Vos (The Black Series 6-Inch) turned out well - it's also the only one, another 6-inch figure that doesn't (hopefully only yet) exist as a 3 3/4-inch scale figure. The unusually tall figure has an amazing sculpt with amazingly sculpted plastic fabric, great hair, and a realistic likeness - really, you don't need to read on to know it's good but read on!
