Figure of the Day

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,309: Poe Dameron (Rogue One)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 17, 2016

This Poe Dameron wears an outfit you probably missed in the movie - but it's there!   It comes with a giant gun thing that you may have also missed in the movie.  This wasn't there.   It's in stores now, so is it worth getting?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,308: R7-D4 (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, November 16, 2016

It's R7-D4!  It's Plo Koon's droid, who is now enjoying its second figure - the first was an animated take from The Clone Wars.  This one is an Entertainment Earth exclusive, and new this year.   Want to know more?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,307: Captain Cassian Andor (Eadu, Rogue One)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 15, 2016

Hey kids, Hoth Battle Gear is making a comeback!   Captain Cassian Andor (Eadu) looks like he draws from equal measures Luke and Han from The Empire Strikes Back, which means they probably nailed the costume here.  He has a gun, a zipline, and a better-than-expected face given the tiny features and stubble.  He's shipping now - should you track him down?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,306: Rebel Commando Pao (Rogue One)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, November 14, 2016

Rebel Commando Pao has a familiar backpack and an all-new screaming head!   The rest of him is also pretty much all-new.  It's part of a good two-pack with a Death Trooper, so you'll probably want to get it.  You can also get it in a Kohl's set.  Point being, you're going to wind up with one.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,305: Scarif Stormtrooper Squad Leader (Rogue One)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 10, 2016

The Scarif Stormtrooper Squad Leader is pretty awesome - and it's part of a great set.  I'm seeing these around, so you should probably snag one when you see it.  Just look at those colors!  It's pretty fancy.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,304: Moroff (Rogue One)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, November 9, 2016

It's Moroff!  He comes with a trooper you want, but is actually a pretty fantastic figure himself.  He may have laughable hair, but it would seem that sort of thing is accepted as of late.   He also includes a giant backpack cannon and a smaller - but still big - rifle.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,303: Imperial Stormtrooper (Rogue One)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 8, 2016

This new Imperial Stormtrooper looks like how most people imagined Sandtroopers in the 1990s - most customs were just a shoulder pad on a Stormtrooper, and it was always orange. The configuration appered in Star Wars Rebels too - but this is the movie Rogue One version with an added ammo pouch.  Swanky!  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,302: Baze Malbus (Rogue One)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, November 7, 2016

Baze Malbus is some sort of weapons expert in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.   The figure was designed accordingly with a massive backpack rocket launcher that may or may not be in the movie.  I have no idea - all I know is that I have this figure in my hands and it looks pretty good.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,301: Sergeant Jyn Erso (Jedha, Rogue One)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 3, 2016

It's Sergeant Jyn Erso (Jedha) from wave 2 of the 3 3/4-inch Rogue One line!  She has a scarf, a blaster, a rocket launcher, and feels like she'd be right at home in the mid-late 1980s "off camera" world of Star Wars toys.   If she couldn't pilot the ATL Interceptor, I don't know who could.   But is she worth picking up - even with appearances in an upcoming gift set and vehicle?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,300: Director Krennic (Rogue One)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, November 2, 2016

Director Krennic is in charge of the whole Death Star construction thing and has a group of hangers-on called Death Troopers.  As such, one might assume he's the new bad guy - the figure turned out fairly well, although maybe the cape isn't exactly what you wanted.   It's still a nice figure.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,299: Jabba's Bartender (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 1, 2016

In the annals of obscurity, many people at many companies worked very hard to bring you the still-nameless Jabba's Bartender astromech droid, in stock now at Entertainment Earth.  It's in Return of the Jedi, and if you can find it you get a prize.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,298: R2-B00 (Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, October 31, 2016

Happy Halloween!  R2-B00 is - or was - at Disney theme parks as I type this for about thirteen spooky dollars.    It'll be a beast to find them now that R2-H16 is shipping.  I bet they'll skeleton of them.  You could say it's pretty ghoul.   Rather than torture more words in this intro, why not read on?

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,297: R3-M2 (Rogue One, Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 27, 2016

And finishing up the 4-pack, it's R3-M2!  This one has a new dome sculpt with a big silver band on the bottom which, unfortunately, helps highlight the inaccuracies of the Hasbro domes for the R3 droids over the past few years.  Well.  I guess we can look to redoing the rest of them.  It's a great figure with wonderful deco, so check it out and read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,296: R2-BHD (Rogue One, Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, October 26, 2016

Silver on silver!  R2-BHD has some nifty deco points, but is a little on the pale side.  It's like the ghost of R2-D2.   You can get it at or near Disney theme parks as I write this, so go ahead and do that were you so inclined.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,295: C2-B5 (Rogue One, Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 25, 2016

It appears Lucasfilm and Disney are going long on C2-B5 - at least three known action figures are available or are in the works so far.   This 3 3/4-inch action figure is available now as part of a Disney parks exclusive Rogue One boxed set - one you can actually buy outside the park in the Downtown Disney compound.  Should you get it?  Read on!
