Figure of the Day

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,332: Princess Leia Organa (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, January 11, 2017

The hard-to-find Princess Leia Organa from the 6-inch line is pretty good.  With any luck she'll get a little more distribution later in the year, but for now she's available in an assortment with 5 other new figures that is a little tough to come by.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,331: C2-B5 (Rogue One Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, January 10, 2017

What's this?  Another C2-B5?  Yup!  One was from Disney, this one is from Hasbro. Their colors are just different enough so that they look like different droids, so I'd say you'd want to get both.  Or you would, if it didn't require the purchase of the AT-ACT.  (It's expensive.)  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,330: Imperial AT-ACT Driver (Rogue One Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, January 9, 2017

Much has been said about his vehicle, but not much of the Imperial AT-ACT Driver himself.  My sample can't actually sit in the vehicle - so I'm not crazy about it.  It's a decent looking figure with swell paint and a great design, but it's never a good sign when a vehicle's pilot can't pilot the vehicle.  Want to see more? Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,329: Captain Cassian Andor (The Black Series 3 3/4-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, January 5, 2017

This smaller Captain Cassian Andor is exclusive to Walmart, and includes a swell three-piece weapon that serves as a pistol or a rifle.  It also has a head sculpt that looks great with stubble that could maybe look great if you painted it better.  I like this one a bunch.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,328: Scarif Stormtrooper (The Black Series 3 3/4-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, January 4, 2017

Walmart's exclusive 3 3/4-inch Scarif Stormtrooper is pretty good.  I've seen quite a few around in the last couple of days, and that means - I assume - there's an ample supply.  It has thigh swivels, a cool blaster, and some excellent battle damage - did you get yours yet, and should you buy a bunch?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,327: Sergeant Jyn Erso (The Black Series 3 3/4-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, January 4, 2017

This Sergeant Jyn Erso is pretty cool - Walmart's 3 3/4-inch super-articulated figure actually has a slightly different costume than the non-exclusive version.  There's a missing jacket under her vest - this is one of the many costume changes in Rogue One.   If you're on the fence about this figure, don't be - she's got a lot of articulation, a sniper rifle, and a unique costume - read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,326: Jyn Erso (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, January 2, 2017

Currently exclusive to Kmart, Jyn Erso has not only an exclusive base, but an exclusive figure with unique accessories.  You won't find this costume anywhere else at this scale just yet, and there's no companion figure just yet.  Is it worth tracking down one of the twelve remaining Kmarts to find this figure?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,325: Director Krennic (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 29, 2016

Hey kids, it's Director Krennic!  The 6-inch figure has a cool gun, a nice cape, and a surprisingly good sculpt.   He's also showing up a lot more lately - you might find this one in stores now!  Read on.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,324: 501st Legion Clone Trooper (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, December 28, 2016

This 6-inch 501st Legion Clone Trooper is in a gift set at Entertainment Earth right now!  It's pretty amazing - the damage deco is some of Hasbro's best, and the blue markings are indeed blue.   Read on for more!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,323: C-3PO (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 27, 2016

This 6-inch C-3PO just hit this year, sporting a red arm from The Force Awakens.  There are two flavors of cherry arms - this is the brighter of the two.  There's one with two golden arms exclusive to Walgreens, hitting wider distribution as I type this.   Have you found yours yet?   Should you get this one?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,322: Scarif Stormtrooper (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, December 26, 2016

Walmart's 6-inch Scarif Stormtrooper is a lot like its exclusive 3 3/4-inch version.  Heck, it seems if you need one, Walmart.com still has a few.     It's a nice figure, with good deco, and you probably wish you could get more of it.  Such is the state of army builders in the Disney era.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,321: Clone Trooper (442nd Siege Battalion, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, December 23, 2016

If you IM me regularly throughout the work week, odds are you want a Clone Trooper (442nd Siege Battalion) action figure! This exclusive is at Entertainment Earth right now, and you can buy it as part of a set of 4 figures in a nifty slipcase.   If you got Christmas Money to spend, read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,320: Death Trooper (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 22, 2016

The reality of the Death Trooper may not be as cool as the mystery box provided to us by the marketing, but the armor design is pretty cool.  It has two blasters, Darth Vader's belt buckle, and a height above that of normal troopers.   Should you pick up this 6-inch Imperial trooper?  I assume you already have, but read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,319: Captain Cassian Andor (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, December 21, 2016

Captain Cassian Andor is one of the cool new characters in Rogue One, and this version is exclusive to Target.   It's an amazing sculpt that really could use a repainted head.   It's pretty good otherwise - how many figures have 3-piece blasters?   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,318: K-2SO (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 20, 2016

Now that I've seen Rogue One, I assume you have too with a look at the 6-inch K-2SO action figure from Hasbro.  It's pretty good, and doesn't include a blaster like some early packaged press photos.   If you thought he was the best part of the movie, I have little doubt that you'll find him the best action figure.  Read on!
