Figure of the Day

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,616: Chewbacca (The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, August 29, 2019

They're sold out, but the Chewbacca (The Retro Collection) is pretty cool. It's like the orgiinal, and close enough that if you didn't grow up with it you probably won't notice a huge difference - but the paint, sculpting, feel, and copyright marks give away its modern origins.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,615: 0-0-0 (Triple Zero, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, August 27, 2019

Check out the 0-0-0 (Triple Zero, The Black Series 6-Inch) - it's C-3PO with new arms, in black.  The hands are swappable, the colors are pretty good, and he's from a comic book you probably stopped reading by now, but is still being published.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,614: Boba Fett (The Black Series / The Empire Strikes Back 40th Anniversary Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, August 22, 2019

It's hard to pick a favorite figure, but Boba Fett (The Black Series / The Empire Strikes Back 40th Anniversary Collection)  has been on my desk for close to a month - that's gotta count for something, right?  It's a redeco of the 2013 figure - which also debuted as a San Diego Comic-Con exclusive - with an added blaster and no carbonite block.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,613: Darth Vader (Prototype Edition, The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, August 20, 2019

If you missed it at Comic-Con, that's OK - there's over a dozen variants of the Darth Vader (Prototype Edition, The Retro Collection), the multi-colored nightmare for completists.   This is the one I got.  While the sculpting details are close to the original, they're not identical.  I like it enough to keep him on my desk.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,612: Artoo-Deetoo (R2-D2, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, August 15, 2019

Filling a gap in the remakes of 12-backs, this Artoo-Deetoo (R2-D2, The Vintage Collection) gives you the package art you crave with the droid "bald spot" you  hoped that Hasbro would fix this time.  The dirt deco is cool, the build-a-droid mold is great, but is the Friar Tuck panel necessary? Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,611: Luke Skywalker (Crait, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, August 13, 2019

Check out the Luke Skywalker (Crait, The Vintage Collection)!  This cool figure is based on a sequence from The Last Jedi that was pretty spectacular - and odds are you won't be seeing it in too many stores these days.  Is it worth tracking down?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,610: Obi-Wan Kenobi (Padawan, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, August 8, 2019

Debuting at Star Wars Celebration this year, but also appearing in a box a couple of months ago, this Obi-Wan Kenobi (Padawan, The Black Series 6-Inch) is pretty great. The first prequel doesn't get a ot of toys, but this is a good one with an excellent portrait.... and sadly no cloth cloak accessory. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,609: Ezra Bridger (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, August 6, 2019

This is a good one.  Ezra Bridger (The Black Series 6-Inch) brings you the Rebels character from his basic Season 1 look with his helmet and lightsaber!  I hope you get one, it's a keeper.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,608: Chewbacca (Batuu, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, August 1, 2019

From Galaxy's Edge, it's a 6-inch Chewbacca!  The redeco of the 2015 figure has some different black paint operations, but is basically your standard issue The Force Awakens Chewbacca.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,607: BB-8 (Droid Depot, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 30, 2019

Now with more dirt!  BB-8 is no longer the baby in the world of droids, and this 2019 release from Galaxy's Edge shows signs of age.  He's a bit dirtier now, but is otherwise quite similar to the 2015 release you may have on your desk or a shelf... or in a box in a closet by now.  Should you upgrade?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,606: R2-D2 (Droid Depot, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, July 25, 2019

Another new figure from Disney's Galaxy's Edge, the R2-D2 (Droid Depot, The Black Series 6-Inch)  is a redeco! If you have an R2-D2 and are happy with it, this may not be necessary for you - but the wear and tear is unique to this figure.  Is it worth the trip to Anaheim to get yours?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,605: Porgs (Batuu, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 23, 2019

They love pizza! These Porgs (Batuu, The Black Series 6-Inch)  are exclusives at Galaxy's Edge in Anaheim right now - they're slightly different from previous Porgs in that one is a screaming Porg and the other is the sad-eyed Porg.  There's limited articulation and they come in a box with 3 other figures - 1 of which is new, 2 of which are slightly different.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,604: C-3PO (Droid Depot, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, July 18, 2019

Just different enough to make you mad... and it's better, too!  This Galaxy's Edge  C-3PO (Droid Depot, The Black Series 6-Inch) uses 4-LOM's arms to give you an all-gold C-3PO with jointed elbows.  The previous versions were rather stiff - this is a big improvement.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,603: Chopper (C1-10P, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 16, 2019

While you're distracted waiting for Comic-Con news, read about Chopper (C1-10P, The Black Series 6-Inch.)  This is a good one - there are claw arms in the dome, a claw in the torso, swappable legs, and a puff of fake plastic smoke.  It pretty much has it all.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,602: Rey (Batuu, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, July 11, 2019

This Rey (Batuu, The Black Series 6-Inch) from Galaxy's Edge is something I did not much want, but is still pretty impressive.  While the original release of this figure is plentiful and cheap, Disney's boxed set version has that realistic face printing that does make a big difference.  If you're good with your Rey collection, you don't need it - but if you want the very best?  Read on!
