Figure of the Day: Day 1,364

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, September 6, 2010

Hey, what could be better than Princess Leia in some sexy dress she used to get a lizard man in the sack?  Anything, that's what!  (We kid.) But seriously, this figure didn't do too well in some markets and a lot of Shadows of the Empire fans already forgot she exists-- odd for a 2008 figure.  Should you grab her?  Read on!

He looks alien, and he looks like he stepped out of a 1970s comic book.  He's Djas Puhr, alien bounty hunter!  The figure has way more detail than the original costume likely had, and has some nice hidden articulation to boot.  Is he worth the nothing he currently sells for?  Read on!

There's still no Ziro the Hutt toy, but last year we did get a low run of Ziro's Assassin Droid! This repaint of IG-86 has great articulation and arguably the best paint job.  Should you get it?  Of course!  But read on anyway.

And speaking of Bossk, here's the finest movie version of the bounty hunter from The Empire Strikes Back yet!  He's super-articulated, and the 2007 Vintage figure now exists as a budget-friendly Saga Legends release with a display stand and a bag of extra guns.  Does he hold up after oh so many years?  Read on!

He's ancient, mean, and one of the first incarnations of Mandalore we've ever met!  He looks older and more old-tyme, but he's still quite cool.  Should you get him?  Obviously.  Read on!

We look fondly back on many Star Wars figures, but this Hoth Rebel Trooper isn't one of them. The 2007 exclusive repaint was based on a figure which, when released in 2004, also stank.  So yeah... you don't need ot buy this one.  But read on anyway!

If you can't get enough concept art toys, try this Snowtrooper on for size!  He has a cloth piece, a wacky silver gun, and a lot of detail that seems right out of 1979.  Is he worth your time?  Yes.  So read on!

If you're not out on a toy run, why not read about this unique Snowtrooper!  From a 2007 Target exclusive, this uniquely stained Imperial grunt stands apart from your army of similar figures-- and it came in a really swell boxed set, easily one of Hasbro's finest.  If you haven't added him to your ranks by now, should you?   Read on!

Depending on the person's location, fans may tell you that this Leia (Hoth Outfit) is currently the most popular of the 11 just-released figures from The Empire Strikes Back.  She's certainly deserving of such sales, even if it may not be true, but is she worth your going out and buying?  Read on!

Hey kids, it's the Clone Trooper Fives!  He has a five on his head-- hence the name.  Other than that, is he special?  Or is he just another variant to make you mad?  I liked it, but you should read on anyway.

What's big, grey, and has a giant gun for a hand?  That's right, the Heavy Assault Super Battle Droid.  This retooled version of the 2008 berserker now has a useful built-in weapon and a slightly changed deco-- is it worth it?  Read on!

Figure of the Day: Day 1,353

Hasbro isn't shy about reusing its 2001 Rebel Trooper mold. This body has had no fewer than 5 heads to date and Hasbro seems to waffle on the prospects of redoing what was once a state-of-the-art release.  Should you pick up this, yet another version of the famous trooper? Read on!

If you like your robots retro, the Rocket Battle Droid is a good candidate.  Released in a couple of ways so far, this figure has a big can opener, a rocket pack, and a wacky helmet thing on his head.  How can you go wrong?  You can't!  Read on!

Figure of the Day: Day 1,351

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, August 18, 2010

A former Fan's Choice candidate, and also a figure Hasbro once said couldn't ever be done with a removable helmet, this Rebel Trooper in Scout Trooper Disguise (or Nik Sant, maybe) is pretty swell. Part of a great Battle Pack, he's most likely long gone from your stores-- but should you get him if you find one somehow?  Read on!

Figure of the Day: Day 1,350

Hey kids, it's Roth-Del Masona, or another Jedi for you to buy!  This figure was (and still is) available at Target as an exclusive and was forged from the mighty form of an existing Mace Windu body.  Should you get one?  Read on!
