Figure of the Day

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,819: The Child (The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, May 27, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: The Child (The Retro Collection). At $10, it's a pretty decent package with a little frog, the hover pram, a stand, and everything else you could want. The figure seems very much like a retro throwback, but you get way more stuff in the bubble than you would have 30ish years ago. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,818: IG-11 (The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, May 25, 2021

Today's focus is on this new release: IG-11 (The Retro Collection). Because the 1980s never ended for some of us, Hasbro made figures that look like old Kenner releases. IG-11 looks a lot like IG-88, only softer, missing a few details, and not quite as perfect as gripping the blasters - but it's still pretty great. I also appreciate they elected to go with the "Credit Collection" red coloring to set it apart. Read the whole review.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,817: LOM-Series Protocol Droid (Silver, Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, May 24, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: LOM-Series Protocol Droid (Silver, Droid Factory). Since they had the body, they repainted it, and we got some pretty nifty variations on the old Bounty Hunter droid. Mine has CZ arms, which look neat since one of the shoulders is painted a slightly different color. These things sometimes look like they were assembled by Jawas. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,816: Kuiil (The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, May 20, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,816: Kuiil (The Retro Collection). This Ugnaught looks a little bit different from the vintage one, and takes a few liberties with the rubbery head from the TV show. It's still cool, and a lot more colorful than the previous figures. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,815: Cara Dune (The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, May 18, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Cara Dune (The Retro Collection). This is a good one - she can hold her blasters, stand, sit, and generally look like an old Kenner figure with a far better paint job than we would be likely to see in the 1980s. Unlike some other late-era Kenner women figures, she also has a neck. (Look at Kea Moll.) She's also a little short - but still a good figure. Mostly I'm just happy there's no vinyl cape to get in the way of vehicle interaction. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,814: 3PO Protocol Droid (Blue, Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, May 17, 2021

Today in Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day: 3PO Protocol Droid (Blue, Droid Factory). This blue droid is sold in parts bins exclusively in theme parks, which may as well mean eBay. The blue head and torso include unique painted stripe patterns, the significance of which I actually do not know - but it's blue and it looks cool, and it reminds me of the blue concept C-3POs we once saw in Tomart's Action Figure Digest. In other words, this Disney figure is sort of like a Kenner prototype we assumed we'd never get. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,813: Han Solo (6-Inch Value Figure, Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, May 13, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Han Solo (6-Inch Value Figure, Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look). This $5 figure was made in 2018, but I never saw them in stores until recently - for all I know they were sitting in a warehouse before being sold in the USA at Five Below stores. They were available internationally, and also seen in board room presentations if you were invited to the right meetings. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,812: The Mandalorian (The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, May 11, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog, it's the kind of figure I've been waiting for - and it's been a very long time. The Mandalorian (The Retro Collection)! It's great. Because the 1980s never ended for some of us, Hasbro made The Mandalorian figures that look like Kenner releases. From 1981. I'm not quite sure why they went with a vinyl cape for a post-ROTJ release, but it's still neat with bright colors and two great blasters. If you see it, especially for ten bucks, and you're old? This is a must-buy figure. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,811: R8-Series Astromech Droid Orange with White Panels

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, May 10, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: R8-Series Astromech Droid Orange with White Panels. A weird dome, a unique body, and some pretty spectacular colors make for a standout droid that matches your X-Wing pilots quite nicely. If you have the means, you should get one. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,810: The Mandalorian (6-Inch Value Figure, Black Logo Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, May 6, 2021

Probably at a store near you, just not in the toy aisles: The Mandalorian (6-Inch Value Figure, Black Logo Line Look). This $5 figure stands tall and may be hidden around your feet at a checklane at a Walmart near you. I suggest going at night when the lanes are mostly empty - each one has different stuff in it, so next to the candy bars and batteries might be a figure with four joints and surprisingly nice paint for the asking price. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,809: R5-M4 (Droid Factory Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, May 4, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: R5-M4 (Droid Factory Line Look). This one was available five years ago, and to this day is arguably the only thing that probably matters to figure fans as May 4 releases go. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,808: The Child (6-Inch Value Figure, Black Logo Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, May 3, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day column, which may well be eternal: The Child (6-Inch Value Figure, Black Logo Line Look). It's a 6-inch scale figure that sells for under $5 at Walmart, but it's also about 1/2-inch bigger than The Black Series The Child. And half the price. For your money, this is one of the better values out there for a figure of this particular character - and we'll look at his Mandalorian companion later this week, too. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,807: Battle Droid (2021, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, April 29, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Battle Droid (2021, The Vintage Collection). This one looks a lot like a figure from 10 years ago with more printed silver scuffing, but there's so much of it that it almost looks like a pearlescent sheen. It's still a good mold, minus the fact that it will need support above the waist if you plan for a long-term display. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,806: Cad Bane (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 27, 2021

Today in Figure of the Day, it's a good one: Cad Bane (The Black Series 6-Inch). This one was available by himself or in a set with Todo 360, end either one is really excellent if you can find them. Cad Bane's hat comes off, he has two blasters, and each and every joint seems to be perfectly hidden in his costume. This is one of the best figures from last year, so get one when you see one. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,805: Zutton (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, April 26, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Zutton (The Vintage Collection). This mold was previously sold as a Target exclusive in a 3-pack a few years ago, and now it's back! At first glance it's pretty much the same as that first release. At a longer glance, it's also pretty much the same as the first release with a bit more of a paint wipe and slightly glossier hair. If you have the first version, you probably don't need the new one - but it's worth a look anyway. Read on!
