Figure of the Day

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,188: First Order TIE Fighter Pilot (Space, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, September 7, 2015

The First Order TIE Fighter Pilot looks a heck of a lot like the Imperial TIE Fighter Pilot - same basic colors, same basic layout.  It's less bulky, though, and other differences make this one an interesting take on the figure we've all crammed in vehicles since the first one in 1982.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,187: Luke Skywalker (Bespin / Jungle, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, September 6, 2015

They can't all be winners, but this figure is crucial if you want to assemble the Jungle cluster of "Combine Weapons."   The Luke Skywalker (Bespin / Jungle, The Force Awakens) is a perfectly nice figure, but a) you probably own it, and b) the backpack isn't enough to make the new, added backpack hole very interesting.  It may also amuse you to know that the backpack has more joints than the action figure.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,186: Captain Phasma (Buzzsaw, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, September 5, 2015

While same figure/different weapons are popping up, so far there's only one 3 3/4-inch Captain Phasma.   There's also a 6-inch one - but that's hard to find so far.  She's tall, she's silver, but - surprisingly - only her chest is painted. The limbs and head are molded in a silvery plastic.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,185: Kylo Ren (Jungle/Claw, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 3, 2015

We still haven't seen everything - but there are many Kylo Ren action figures.  Variant accessories may be a thing now, so keep your peepers peeled.  This one has a bear trap of sorts, but the figure itself has a great sculpt, good deco, and stands up just fine.  It's eight bucks, and you can order it at Entertainment Earth or elsewhere.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,184: R4-D23 (D23 Exclusive)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 3, 2015

Hey, it's R4-D23 (D23 Exclusive)!  And tomorrow is Force Friday, but you knew that.  This one was sold at the Disney show recently, and it's pretty nifty - you don't have one like this.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,183: R2-D2 (Holographic)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, September 2, 2015

From the Star Wars Weekends comes this newish R2-D2 (Holographic) action figure.  It's clear blue, unpainted, and uses the newer Disney droid tooling.  Should you snag one?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,182: R2-D60 (Disneyland Exclusive)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 1, 2015

Hey kids, while we wait for Friday let's look at some other toys you have have missed.  The R2-D60 figure was sold as part of Disneyland's 60th Birthday and isn't too expensive if you  have to turn to the secondary market.  Get while the getting is good.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,176: R5-Series Astromech Droid Black with Silver and Orange

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, August 25, 2015

Today in Figure of the Day - before a brief hiatus so I can get some other things in order so we can hopefully all have a fun September - is R5-Series Astromech Droid Black with Silver and Orange.  It's another Disney droid, and potentially available at a theme park "near" you right now.   Is it worth it?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,180: Captain Rex (The Clone Wars - Yoda Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, August 21, 2015

Hey, remember those waves of figures in Yoda-themed packaging that never made it out in the USA?  Well, this Captain Rex is one of them - he has different deco than the 2012 release, plus added knee joints.   Is it worth tracking down this mostly European release?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,179: R2-Series Astromech Droid Grey and White

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, August 20, 2015

The R2-Series Astromech Droid Grey and White  from Disney's droid part bins look a lot like R2-Q2, an exclusive from 2006.  Since there may be more than one of it in the movie, is it different enough to be interesting - or the same enough to be the same?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,178: Clone Commander Doom (The Black Seres)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, August 19, 2015

Hey kids, it's Clone Commander Doom!  Based on the 6th season episodes, this movie-style version of a Clone Wars figure is nice.  Not perfect, but nice.   Did you get yours yet?  Maybe you should track one down - read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,177: Princess Leia Organa (Boushh, The Black Seres)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, August 18, 2015

With or without her helmet, the new 3 3/4-inch Princess Leia Organa (Boushh) seems to share a digital sculpt with the 6-inch version.  You'll see differences - this one has a dedicated detonator in her hand, and less face paint - but it's still pretty good.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,176: R4-Series Astromech Droid White with Red and Silver

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, August 14, 2015

It's not R4-E1, or really all that close.   The R4-Series Astromech Droid White with Red and Silver reminds me of that droid, but all the patterns are different - check out the unique feet, torso, and the dome markings similar to the blue R4Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,175: R2-Series Astromech Droid Black and Silver (not R2-Q5)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, August 13, 2015

The R2-Series Astromech Droid Black and Silver looks a lot like R2-Q5, but it's actually a buildable Disney droid at a theme park (not) near you!  The colors are as vibrant as the black plastic is not glossy.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,174: Commander Thorn (The Black Seres)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, August 12, 2015

It's new.  It's different.  But it's not exactly a premium figure.  Hasbro's 2015 Commander Thorn brings you a mishmash of parts that could be used to make Cody or Rex (or Doom!) and gives them a rich red paint job that, as long as you don't compare it to the animation model, is the best thing ever.  Once you start to hold them up side by side, it looks a little less great.   Read on!
