Figure of the Day

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,953

Another Star Tours droid!  It's not orange, so this Red R3-Series Astromech Droid is different than the droid in the Legacy line a few years ago.  See the silver box around the black eye? That's how you can tell.

Recently released (and really the only animated toys of the season), Clone Trooper Boost is part of the just-released and also just-marked down to $15.11  As a redeco, you know what to expect... but at least it's a neat redeco and one that's priced to move right now.  Should you get it?

It's Ahsoka Tano, this time released with creepy brain worms.  Because it's the 201X-es, there are zombies in everything, even Star Wars.  This figure set became a de facto closeout exclusive and may be at a store near you on the cheap.  You'll have to go look.  But should you make the effort?

This Darth Maul was one of a few new sculpts cranked out this year, and as luck would have it I'm spying tons of these in Walmart 8-packs around town all of a sudden. It's a fun figure, and is a gem as 1/8 of a $25 set.

This version of Ki-Adi-Mundi comes from a 2008 Battle Pack which many fans missed. It didn't get very good distribution, but it's not too expensive and it's a wonderful set full of robots and clones.  How can you go wrong?

Let's finish up this trilogy of purple astromech droids while I listen to Freezepop and post the R4-Series Astromech Droid in this lovely coloring.  You'll like it.  Trust me.  Mace Windu would, too.

It looks like it belongs to Mace Windu, but the Purple R6-Series Astromech Droid is one of many robots you can build at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Orlando.  Well, maybe, getting the pieces you want is something of a trick.

Ahh, the Purple R3-Series Astromech Droid.  This Orlando exclusive is a pain in the next to get, but pretty neat because of the crystal-clear colorless dome and the purple detailing.  Should you get one?

Behold, the best-ever Watto action figure on the market today!  The price isn't bad, the deco is better than the 1999 version, plus he has a swell companion figure.  Do you know which one this is?  You will!

Ah, Anakin Skywalker.  This is a pretty great figure, because it has good wrist movement and a swell cloth skirt piece which doesn't get in the way of it being a good toy.  It's also not impossible to find, and online prices aren't awful.  Want to know more?

This is a good one!  Another Battle Pack exclusive, Clone Trooper Echo (Kamino) has some awesome deco.  There's a swell tampo on his thigh, slick blue stripes, and of course, a gun.  You need guns.

If you can't afford Gentle Giant's animated maquettes, Hasbro's animated action figures like Obi-Wan Kenobi are a pretty good deal, largely because they are now sort of worthless.  There's a little bit of articulation, and it's a striking sculpt with strong lines.  On eBay, an entire collection is still ridiculous.  Should you get this one?

This version of Princess Leia came out earlier in the year, and she's a neat one.  A mix of the 2009 Slave figure with new parts (like goggles), this is a pretty nice design and comes from one of the many deleted scenes on the 2011 Blu-Ray collection.  Should you get her?

Pretty closely scaled to figures, the Naboo Nuna is also known as the intergalactic equivalent of our Thankgiving bird.  The "Swamp Turkey" comes from a Battle Bags set from 1999, which brought us about 16 unarticulated PVC figures from The Phantom Menace which are, frankly, awesome.

Awwww yeah!  R2-D2 made from build-a-droid bits!  Well, one of two, but this one is nifty because it has a Naboo Droid Harness plus a nifty blue light on his dome, which is unusual.  He looks great!  Should you care?
