Figure of the Day

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,402: Bala-Tik (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, September 4, 2017

Two years later is better than never!   Bala-Tik made it as a pack-in for the just-released-last-weekend Rathtar creature.  He has a blaster and he talks - he also screams.   The design turned out fairly well, and you can probably find him at a store near you as I type this.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,401: Rathtar (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, September 3, 2017

Hasbro's new Star Wars line - where it doesn't mention the new movie by name anywhere on the packaging - really does span the whole saga.  I found a new sculpt (and stunning) 1977-style Obi-Wan Kenobi on Saturday, and they also pay tribute to some cool stuff from The Force Awakens, as there is much that would still make a good toy.  We got a Rathtar!   He can eat figures.   He can make superbly cool and gross noises on the Force Link band.  Unfortunately, his tentacles can pop out easily, and he's basically a potato with a mouth.  I like it - it comes with a cool figure.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,400: Chewbacca with Porg (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, September 1, 2017

Day #2400! Why am I still doing this?   Just released this week, let's look at Chewbacca with Porg. The figure is awesome.  The animal buddy is awesome.  The bowcaster may be Hasbro's worst, as it falls apart if it touches anything.  Bring glue, but do give this figure a look - it's sturdy otherwise.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,399: Imperial Probe Droid (The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, August 31, 2017

It begins!  The first figure I cracked open from Force Friday II was the Imperial Probe Droid.  It's the first all-new Probot in nearly 20 years, and it's a nice one with a better integrated rocket, a superior sculpt, nifty Force Link sounds, and a clear display stand.  And more articulation.  And glossy plastic bits.  It's just better - read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,398: Vendor Droid (Black, Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, August 23, 2017

The glossy Vendor Droid (Black, Droid Factory) is available in Flordia now, and it's pretty sharp.  It's shiny, it's not something we've seen in a movie or TV show yet, and it looks like it could belong on the Death Star playset you'll probably never get.  But I digress.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,397: Galen Erso (Rogue One)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, August 21, 2017

Let's look at Rogue One's Galen Erso, a figure you never saw in stores.  Maybe you ordered it online - if so, good on you.  You got a mouse droid, a zipline, and a blaster.   That ain't bad.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,396: Luke Skywalker (SDCC Landspeeder, The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, August 16, 2017

Fresh from Comic-Con, this Landspeeder version of Luke Skywalker has a poncho, a hat, and that landspeeder.  It's cool!  It has a new head sculpt too.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,395: Rey (Jedi Training, The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, August 14, 2017

From The Last Jedi and also San Diego Comic-Con, this Rey (Jedi Training) action figure is sort of available now - HasbroToyShop doesn't seem to have it, but it's likely to be in stores next month or soon thereafter.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,394: Luke Skywalker (Jedi Master, The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, August 9, 2017

You've been waiting a long time for it, so let's look at Comic-Con's Luke Skywalker (Jedi Master)!  The 6-inch figure includes a cloak, and also a Rey figure.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,393: Clone Commander Gree (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, August 7, 2017

In stores now, maybe, Clone Commander Gree (The Black Series) is cool. The colors aren't a perfect match to the movie or previous figures, but there are newly-tooled pieces and you want to be careful that the antenna doesn't fall out of his backpack.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,392: Imperial Royal Guard (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, August 2, 2017

Today: let's look at the not-common-enough Imperial Royal Guard (The Black Series) 6-inch action figure!  It's really cool - and the helmet isn't removable.  You do get armor under the robes, so custom Kir Kanos figures can't be far behind.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,391: R2-C2 (Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, July 31, 2017

Check out the R2-C2 (Droid Factory)! Disney's take on Ziro's droid has different glasses, a different drink spigot, and uses that build-a-droid mold.   Hasbro has one too as an Entertainment Earth Exclusive, and I'd say just get both - Ziro probably needs a lot of drinks.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,390: R5-013 (Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, July 26, 2017

The droid wars continue with R5-013!  This green robot has white stripes and is sold in a boxed set at Disney theme parks.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,389: R5-S9 (Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, July 24, 2017

Take a look at R5-S9 (Droid Factory), it's blue! The colors don't match the show perfectly, but it's also not an animated figure.  You can find this The Clone Wars-inspired robot at Disney theme parks in a 4-pack, and of course we're going to look at them all.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,388: R5-P8 (Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, July 19, 2017

From the Disney parks, it's R5-P8 (Droid Factory)!   It has a gun, lots of painted dirt, and a cartoony monster face on it.  It's brilliant.  You should get one.  Read on!
