The best update of the 1980s vintage figure is the 2009 Luke Skywalker with his poncho from the Battle for Endor Battle Pack. It's likely still available near you and includes a Warok. What makes it so great? And could it be better? Read on!
Here you go, this is a good one. Combining elements of what makes a great toy with what makes a great figure, the 2010 Toys "R" Us exclusive Bossk will delight and amaze once you get past the very high cost of purchase. Read on!
Here's a stunner-- this new Cad Bane isn't merely a retooled figure. The head, body, and most of the entire thing is new construction, and it has a spectacular range of motion. Oh, and his bike is pretty cool too. Want to see more? Read on!
If there's one constant in the universe it's that you never know what you might get from a General Grievous action figure. This one is pretty solid-- huge feet, swappable arms, and a nice sculpt ensure he doesn't fall to pieces or melt on you, but his legs could misshapen with time. Would you believe it's one of the best Grievous figures in years? Read on!
Hey kids, it's another Clone Trooper, this time based on the newer sculpt. It's in the Bantha Squad, and it is a decent new version of the same (or similar) design we've come to love since 2002. Read on!
Still available in some towns, this Shadow Stormtrooper cast in clear plastic is an unusual creature in our favorite action figure line. Rarely does Hasbro do Star Wars releases cast entirely in clear plastic, but here you go. Is it worth it? Read on!
Hey kids, it's another Clone Pilot. This one is notable because it has a distinctive helmet which, so far, has not been used on any other figures. Note the enclosed face but, aside from that, it's similar to the Revenge of the Sith helmets. I like it. Should you? Read on!
From the pages of the just-ended (but sort of continuing) Star Wars: Legacy comic books, Vax Potorr is a Stormtrooper that, in figure form, looks a lot like your other Stormtroopers. This now basically sold-out item may be on shelves at certain stores near you, but online it's going away-- how is it? Read on!
This swell Firefighter Droid is an oddity-- it's a villain painted up to look like a real-life heroic figure. (I have a lot of Playmobil firefighters, you see.) The figure is also retooled slightly from previous animated Battle Droids. Is this Clone Wars bad guy a keeper? Read on!
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.
