Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,589

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, July 18, 2011

It's a Clone Pilot!  This is the one that comes with the brand-new Y-Wing Scout Bomber, and has more than a passing resemblance to Warthog. With ball-jointed hips and great helmet deco, it's a nice figure-- but is it worth buying with the vehicle?  Read on!

If you like grey hair on your space warriors, get a look at Sinker here.  He has the same colors as most of Plo Koon's troopers from the first season, plus a unique head design and a removable helmet.  I hope you got one, as they're long gone now.  Read on!

A slightly different version!  This is a slightly redecorated version of Obi-Wan Kenobi as a spirit, as released in 2007.  Any good?  Sure!  Read on!

While his articulation wasn't perfect, Hasbro did design their first Revenge of the Sith Clone Pilot to be able to sit and fit inside pretty much all the vehicles-- so it's a good toy, but didn't meet the growing standards of collectors.  I think it's great-- but will you?  Read on!

Repainted about three times inside 2 years, this Anakin Skywalker was the last and arguably best take on the mold.  With a swinging arm action and a clone buddy, he was a pretty nifty release-- but do you need him for your collection?  Read on!

This Princess Leia figure has a poncho and a display stand with a coin.  It's similar to the Speeder Bike version, but... not.  It's good, though-- so read on!

Oh, here's a neat one. Mostly neat due to the accessory, as the figure mold is showing its age, this Star Tours Darth Vader just hit a month and change back, reusing the 2005 "500th" Vader mold with a nifty new floating platform.

Screw naming conventions!  The astromech droid CB-3D looks like several other astromech droids... but he's slightly different.  Is he worth tracking down?  He is if you want a Dark Trooper!  Read on!

It took a year and change, but Hasbro put out this original Gungan Warrior after the big shake-up that followed the Episode I line being changed to Power of the Jedi.  Despite having only 6 joints, he's pretty good-- and has great detail on his skin, too!  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,580

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 5, 2011

It's not a major character, or a very popular one-- but it's a nice figure!  The Neimoidian Warrior has a huge gun and an action feature, plus a removable helmet and good articulation.  Should you buy a few?  Maybe!  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,579

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, July 4, 2011

It's Barriss Offee!  The Jedi hasn't received a new figure in years, but now we got two of her in a few months.  How about that!  This animated version is pretty slick, plus includes Geonosian Brain Worms.  Should you track her down, now that she's showing up in stores?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,578

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, July 1, 2011

When first revealed to the public in 1999, another, better R2-D2 was shown around the same time.  As such, this one didn't get as much heat, especially after we all found out his scene was deleted-- the booster rockets took on a new form in the sequels. Ah well.  But is it neat?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,577

One of the most likable critters from Jabba's Palace is the cackling puppet Salacious Crumb.  He's a jerk. What's not to love?  The 2010 release was a repaint of the 2007 release, hardly essential were it not for the fact it came with a new Jabba and Oola.  So how is he different?  Read on!

It's no secret, I love Ewoks.  I think the fact that a lot of collectors hate them makes me like them even more.  I was particularly jazzed to get the 2009 update of Paploo which, while I don't love as much as the 1984 original, I still like bunches.  Is he worth your while?  Read on!

It's the Evo Trooper, repainted and camo'd up for 2010!  This figure was a Toys R Us exclusive and now... well, maybe you got one.  If not, it's probably not there any more.  Is this repaint worth it?  Read on!
