Say hi to Clone Trooper Jek!  Today's Figure of the Day debuted as an exclusive but eventually had an individually carded rerelease-- which was slightly harder to get.  Should you have picked up this figure from The Clone Wars when you had the chance?  Read on!

Hey kids, it's the first-ever Wedge Antilles action figure!  He has 6 joints, a Hoth pilot outfit, and basically is worth getting only if you're a card-carrying member of the Cult of Wedge.  But should you read on anyway?  Yes.

The new Vintage Collection figures should be pretty much everywhere this week, we even saw some at lunch today.  As such, it's time to decide if figures like this new Han Solo are worth your while. He's new, but is he cool?  (Being he's from Hoth, after all?)  Read on!

Hey kids, it's the brand-new (as of this week [or last month]) General Grievous!  He has swappable heads, arms you can rip off, and even hackable legs.  Unfortunately, his plastic is a little soft.  Is he worth tracking down?   Read on!

Hey kids, it's Coleman Trebor!  This retooled version of the dinosaur-like Jedi Knight may still be at a Target near you, and at full price.  Is he worth the purchase?  Read on!

Hey kids, it's the Dark Trooper!  This awesome figure appears in a more primitive, more stabby incarnation.  It's a shared exclusive between Toys "R" Us and online accounts... but that doesn't mean you're likely to see one in your travels.  Is he worth putting in some effort to find?  Read on!

This is one Star Wars figure a lot of fans missed.  Tarados Gon was one of the last figures on the "blue" Legacy Collection packaging, and he came with an HK-47 part.  If you missed him, should you fix that mistake?  Read on!

Star of stage, screen, and podcasts, Yoda is all things to all Star Wars fans.  Heck, he's even a great podcaster.  This 2009 Clone Wars action figure is loaded with articulation, but should you add him to your massive pile of Yoda toys?  Read on!

Hey kids, it's the Gungan Warrior! This one has the best sculpt Hasbro has ever done of the character... but the paint, not so hot.  It's a solid item, and if given the chance, should you buy a ton of them?  (Yes.)  Read on anyway!

Looking for something different? Hasbro's Obi-Wan Kenobi in Space Suit sure fits the bill.  With super-articulation, a fishbowl-style helmet, and a lot of detail, it's amazing that a figure this good is part of what Hasbro considers its "kid's line."  So how many do you need?  Read on!

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, July 23, 2010

Hey kids, it's Bail Organa!  This 2008 version was not hugely popular and may be available at a store near you for under five bucks.  I should note, he has a pretty pimpin' gown going on there, I think, or maybe it's just a space robe. Should you get him?   Read on!

She's dark! She's a woman!  She's the Dark Woman, who first showed up at Comic-Con nearly three years ago this week!  With grey hair, a purple lightsaber, and not a lot of personality to speak of, you might wonder if you shoud buy her if you see her covered in dust at Kmart.  Read on!

Going on sale basically right now is this Comic-Con exclusive Visionaries Darth Maul! It's super-articulated, has a crown of horns, a lightsaber with removable blades, and incredible hip articulation.  It also has particularly lavish packaging, particularly when you compare it against similarly priced comic packs.  Should you snag it when it goes on sale? Read on!

Figure of the Day: Day 1,330
