Just over 10 years ago we were hugely surprised by Jorg Sacul, the X-Wing Fighter Pilot with George Lucas' head and the first-ever Celebration exclusive figure.  Is it still super-cool?  Read on!

You may (or may have not) seen this new 2012 Queen Amidala at retail, but she's pretty neat.  The sculpt is good, the deco could be a smidgen better, and overall it's a big improvement over 1999.  Read on!

With quasi-Fett-inspired armor and a flip-up helmet Super Grover would love, I generally like the Mandalorian Police Officer. His articulation may be lacking, but it's cool!  Read on!

Oh, what a Cutup this Clone Cadet is!  Cadet #4 is here, and we're still missing a few other ones.  Is this figure worth getting? I think so.  Read on!

She was spared two different death scenes only to wind up in sexy rags in The Force Unleashed! This hard-to-find Shaak Ti sports a lightsaber and not much of a costume.  Is it worth getting? Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,836

It's the Rodian Jedi from Target!  This cool figure reuses Luke parts in a fun way that results in a big-headed alien with a laser sword.  You'll want this one.  Read on!

If you collected the Jedi High Council sets, you'll end up with some figures like Anakin Skywalker that, by now, you may own 5 times over.  He's just a little different and has no accessories.  Should you care? Read on!

There are figures you must own in your collection, but Passel Argente is not one of them.  It's a perfectly good figure with limited articulation, but it's not like he was a major character.  Is greenie  worth it? Read on!

Here's a neat one.  Check out the Tartakovsky Clone Trooper, part of a once-rare boxed set which is now a dirt-cheap boxed set.  It's disgusting how awesome this figure is for the price.  Read on!

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, June 21, 2012

Last but not least in this new wave of Vintage is Clone Pilot Odd Ball, a nicely-sculpted and pretty nicely painted new pilot! We didn't need a new mold, but Hasbro gave it to us and it turned out well.  How well?  Read on!

Some figures I love, and you'll hate.  This Obi-Wan Kenobi may qualify, given it has an astonishingly good sculpt and Ewan McGregor likeness, but only 5 points of articulation.  Since I'm right and you're wrong, what's wrong with you?  Read on and find out!
