What's the best way to come down from Toy Fair? Let's look at something old. The Han Solo with gunner station wasn't a big seller.  It even got dumped in the Big Clearance of 2000.  Was it even neat for its time?  Read on!

It's almost dirty!  The first-ever Labria action figure has since been repainted, but there's no denying the intrigue around a first-release.  Or rather, there wouldn't be if there weren't thousands of the things.  Is it any good?  Read on!

This Boba Fett looks a lot like the 2007 Animated Debut version, but it isn't.  Well, it's close-- it was supposed to be redecorated, but Hasbro gave this one an accessory transplant.  Worth a look?  Read on!

Back in 1999 and 2000, Hasbro really cranked out a lot of Jar Jar Binks figures.  Some had great head sculpts, some... well, some were like this.  He looks bored, doesn't have jointed legs, and the paint is basically OK.  Should you bother?  Read on!

This Saga Legends Sandtrooper is one of my favorites.  It's a good mold with a great paint wipe, which resulted in a stunning figure which people actually still want today.  (Unreal, I know.)  You should get one-- so read on!

So hey, it's Warok, in theory.  It looks a little like the vintage 1980s action figure, although the coloring is different from what we saw on the old Kenner cardback.  It seems like, for now, this is probably the only modern Warok we'll get-- is he worth it?  Read on!

Hasbro loves upgrades, and this Obi-Wan Kenobi takes a good figure and makes it even better by adding cloth robes plus jointed knees and ankles.  Packaged with your choice of vehicles, it's a great, great figure you really need to get for piloting purposes.  Read on!

He had to come up eventually!  Jabba the Hutt  was the most sought-after exclusive of late summer 2010, and today?  Half price.  Life just isn't fair, but even if you paid full price for this guy, I expect you'll like it.  Want to see more?  Read on!

While we just got a pretty nice vintage version of this figure, it's worth noting that this Super Battle Droid has ball-jointed ankles.  And this one came from last year, too!  Should you track down this Target exclusive?  Read on!

When the Clone Wars movie first hit fans asked when they could expect a Jungle Camo ARF Trooper. Well, not exactly-- they asked where they could buy those cool scouts, but this is what they turned out to be.  You should get two-- not one, but two.  Read on!

Hey kids, it's the new Zam Wesell!  This one has two heads, two scarves, two guns, and, presumably, a large boat in which to transport them.  How is she?  Read on!

Today in why-are-they-using-leafblowers-outside (and Figure of the Day) is the Commando Droid!  This is the first, basic carded release from 2009.  He folds up real small and has exceptional articulation.  You should buy a few-- read on!

From 2009 (not the 2010 release) it's Luke Skywalker!  This was another attempt at Death Star II Jedi Luke which, it seems, has been historically tough to do well.  (Hasbro more or less nailed it in 2010.)  So how is this one?  Read on!

This figure was the first "new" body type, released in early 2010.  Clone Commander Stone has no ankles, but he does have a distinctive sculpt with no ankles. How interesting!  Should you pick this one up, given the chance?  Read on!

Hey, it's another Obi-Wan Kenobi!  From 2005 through 2008, Hasbro did a lot of mixing-and-matching to create slightly different versions of the Phantom Menace costume.  Is this one any good?  Read on!
