Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,886

It's R5-D8! I know it looks like R5-D4, but it's not.  Trust me.  This redeco uses a build-a-droid body and creates Jek Porkins' trusty droid in a different paint job than they did for Galactic Heroes.

Not quite as exciting as an all-new astromech, this older Destroyer Droid has limited articulation but a decent sculpt.  There's not a lot to it, but it looks good. Want to know more? Read on!

Given the nebulous nature of what constitutes an actual full figure, the Red R9-Series Astromech Droid is more than a little arbitrary.  We'll be viewing the Star Tours Droid Factory figures as unique characters, defined by the dome.  (The body is, of course, up to you.)  This one is bright red, almost orange, with a rich silver texture and a softer sculpt than his brothers.  Is it worth the trip and obscene price on eBay?

Let's look at Dagobah Darth Vader.  The funny thing about this one, there are two other versions of the "character" but all of them are a little different. Why is this one the best?

This Darth Maul is a lot like another Darth Maul, but it's got a jacket.  But no shirt.  Why? I have no idea, but here it is so read on.

Check out this Clone Trooper.  It's red! There are other ones too, but this one is red.  It also has some added panel lining, so it looks good.  Read on!

While not the last, this release of  Commander Bacara may well be the best.  It came in a Battle Pack and has some nice damage deco.  Should you get yours?  Read on!

Remember Durge?  Nine years ago, he was revealed as a toy for the very first time and this animated version of the figure came a little bit later.  Is he cool?

Hey kids, this figure is labeled Queen Amidala and it's old.  It's pretty good, though!  The detail is good, the deco is nice, and it's pretty cheap.  Read on!

Every now and again, some of our favorite action figures have a patron saint.  Nho'Apakk was one such figure, although the news of his patron isn't so rosy.  Find out why this figure rocked, and some sad news when you read on.

While not quite a figure, but way cooler than just an accessory, this year's SDCC exclusive Jar Jar Binks in Carbonite is a real oddity. You can sort of see it in The Force Unleashed, it has a great sculpt, but it's a little small to fit Jar Jar.  Yet it's one of the most compelling items of the year.

A 1999 weapon with a 2012 figure! This Qui-Gon Jinn has an amazing sculpt, yet has articulation that seemed dated in 1983.  It's a good thing it's awesome overall-- read on, you'll like this one!

It's Tippet, a brand-new Toys R Us exclusive Ewok with 2 weapons and 2 hoods from his 2 appearances in Marvel Comics!  I like this one a bunch, and since you asked for more Ewoks, here you are!  Read on!

It's Princess Leia in Bespin Gown, part of the latest wave (and Comic-Con exclusive pack) from Hasbro!  Even though the last one was good, this one is an improvement.  Should you get one?
