Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,783

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, April 13, 2012

It's the third release of swimming Kit Fisto in "realistic" style! This one was the best, because it came with a wire-filled cloak, a better paint job, and a cool astromech droid sidekick.  I hope you got yours!  Read on!

This General Grievous was from the wonderful but short-lived line of Walmart Droid Factory sets.  The cape is the unique feature of this one, but is it enough?  Read on!

The tough-to-spell Ratts Tyerell is in stores now, most likely.  While some noticed the initial wave is hanging (because it is), he'll probably dry up soon-- should you get him before he does?  I think so. Read on!

While not called out on the front of the box, this ARF Trooper is basically Trapper from the really cool Geonosis story arc.  There were zombies and dirt, which I hear kids love.  Should you get him?  Does he look like Waxer and Boil?

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,779

It's interesting to see that this Battle Droid is getting another run, and is one of the oldest figures to get a redeco in the line's run. (First issue 1998, this issue 2012.)  So the STAP is quite different, but how about the figure?  Read on!

It's Hasbro, and it comes with a new Astromech droid, so Jedi Mickey oddly makes the cut for Figure of the Day.  Is it worth it? No. But you're bored at work so read on!

Oola-la!  This super-articulated take on Jabba's ex-dancer and pet snack turned out quite well and has her costume rendered largely in soft goods, which is, to say the least, unusual.  Check her out!

Having debuted several weeks ago, I've seen Lando Calrissian out in the wild a few times now. As gear goes, he's fantastic. As coloring goes, he could use some sun.  Want to know more?  Read on!

The third time is the charm!  We got R2-B1 before in 2000 and 2007, but this is the one you'll want. This "newly" released hard-to-find Walmart exclusive started hitting big in the last week, so did you get yours? And should you?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,774

It's Clone Trooper Kix, one of very few Clone medics in the entire line. There are hundreds of these things, but doctors?  Like one.  What are they, disposable?  Oh yeah, right. Hm. Anyway, go check him out!

Check out Clone Commander Cody in his Phase II armor.  It's good-- new helmet, new sculpt, and a pain-in-the-neck backpack peg await you on this newish figure. Go get one, won't you?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,772

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 29, 2012

It's Qui-Gon Jinn with Kenner-esque shoulder and hip joints, the best head sculpt ever, and a light-up lightsaber.  How oddly delightful!  Should you get one?  I think so.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,771

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, March 28, 2012

From a semi-recent Battle Pack, Colonel Dyer is, for all intents and purposes, our best update of the Kenner Imperial Officer figure. Black uniform, gloves, and a blaster... he's our guy!  So is the set worth your while? (Yes.) Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,770

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 27, 2012

This Battle Droid is the first release of the new 2012 Movie Heroes line-- the second is red.  So this is just different to make you mad, particularly because it's from a cheap 2-pack mold at $9.  So should you get it? No, but read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,769

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, March 26, 2012

This Jedi Padawan is a sort of nameless extra from a recent Star Tours set.  Not specifically from the movies or ride, he looks like he's based on an actual person but nobody really knows who it is.  Do you?  I don't.  Anyway, read on!
