By Adam Pawlus — Monday, August 30, 2010

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!

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!

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!

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!

Today let's look at Clone Captain Rex, covered in eel blood!  Figure of the Day has never been so gross.  Is this figure worth picking up just because he's covered in blue goo?  Read on!

On sale at Celebration V-- with practically no line at all-- is a two-pack with Fixer and Camie Marstrap.  This is a great set-- the comic is nice, but the fact that you're getting action figures of a legendary scene you've likely never seen is pretty amazing.  She's well-done too, so read on!

On sale now-- I just saw the line, so I can confirm this-- is Zuckuss, or 4-LOM in Kenner colors.  I love this figure-- the paint job is delightfully retro and the gag naming is delightful.  You do need it.  Read on!

What a difference a year makes!  In 2009, this was one of the hottest topics and most-debated issues, because Captain Typho was really hard to get.  Now?  Well, you're probably more concerned with Celebration V than how amazing this figure is, complete with crazy gear and amazing detail.  Show some respect-- read on!

You may be able to find this Tall Jedi Padawan if you go to Florida this week!  The Star Tours exclusive was reportedly not a huge hit, so some might be around in a Disney park near... well, someone.  Is he worth grabbing?  Read on!
