Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,281: Sergeant Jyn Erso (Rogue One)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, September 30, 2016

Let's kick off this weekend - yes, we're gonna do a bunch of these - with the character whose last name is almost the German word for "first."  The first release of 3 (or more) known 3 3/4-inch releases of our new Rebel hero is Sergeant Jyn Erso, now showing up carded with 7 points of articulation, a working holster, a movable breathing mask, and a non-removable helmet.  And if you pull off her arms, you can see under the poncho.  Don't do that.  But you can see how it looks - just read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,280: Captain Phasma (The Black Series 3 3/4-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, September 28, 2016

It's the Captain Phasma 3 3/4-inch super-articulated figure from Walmart?  Have you found one yet?  Probably not - usually the waves hit, but don't saturate for a few months.   Vigilance!   It pays off - it's a good figure if you can find one.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,279: Han Solo (The Black Series 3 3/4-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 27, 2016

I'm seeing more of the Han Solo in his Starkiller base jacket around, but not a ton of it.   This is a shame, because it's a great figure.  There's fine printing on his blaster, exceptional articulation, and a pretty good head sculpt.  Should you grab one before the Rogue One crowds start?  Read on!

Press Release: Hasbro Reveals Many New Rogue One September 30 Exclusives

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, September 23, 2016

Hasbro's PR team kindly sent along a press release with many new and some neewish exclusives! More are coming this fall, but for now, here's a look at what you can expect on (or around) Friday, September 30. None of the 3 3/4-inch figure exclusives are listed here, but 6-inch, prop replicas, Nerf guns, and more await you after the jump.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,278: Princess Leia Organa (The Black Series 3 3/4-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 22, 2016

The only new Leia from the new movie, Princess Leia Organa was a Walmart exclusive that, despite very strange eyebrows, is otherwise not bad.  Cloth bits, a decent sculpt, and better articulation than her outfit can make use of, if/when you find her she's the only game in town.  Hopefully we'll see a General Resistance/Vest version next.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,277: First Order Stormtrooper (The Black Series 3 3/4-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, September 21, 2016

The First Order Stormtrooper was a pain to find last year when this 3 3/4-inch boxed figure debuted as a Walmart exclusive.  It still is, but it was back then, too.  He's got more joints and less gear than the other 3 3/4-inch releases, so is he worth it?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,276: Rey (The Black Series 3 3/4-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 20, 2016

You might be seeing Rey from Walmart's exclusive The Black Series assortment as enough of the 3 3/4-inch figures shipped that she sat around in some areas.  Of course now that people are looking again, she'll probably go away pretty fast.  Should you go hunting?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,275: Kylo Ren (The Black Series 3 3/4-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 15, 2016

It's another Kylo Ren (The Black Series 3 3/4-Inch)!  This one has a hilt, a lightsaber, some cloth bits, and a helmet molded to the  bottom of a hood.  You'll dig it - if you can find it.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,274: Finn (The Black Series 3 3/4-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, September 14, 2016

We're back!  Planes, and all.   Today it's Finn (The Black Series 3 3/4-Inch), which is an awesome figure that looks a lot like the regular version you probably saw a bunch of already.  Is it worth the upgrade?  Yeeeeeahhhhhhh.  Shell out, dudes.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,273: Poe Dameron (The Black Series, 3 3/4-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 13, 2016

Hey kids, it's Poe Dameron!  This is the good one - the 3 3/4-inch Walmart exclusive from The Black Series.   It has a helmet, lots of articulation, and the best portrait at this size so far.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,273: Maz Kanata (The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, September 9, 2016

It's Maz Kanata!  She's in a boxed set, the Takodana Encounter, and is likely on clearance at a big box store near you right now.  Why pay full price? Go get one, it's worth it.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,271: Fifth Brother (The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 8, 2016

From Star Wars Rebels, it's the Fifth Brother!   He's an Inquisitor with a double-bladed lightsaber and a big claw.  And a big hat!  What else could you ask for?   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,270: Admiral Ackbar (The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, September 7, 2016

In what may be - but we hope isn't - his final appearance, we saw a new outfit for Admiral Ackbar which in turn inspired this new figure with an opening mouth!  He also has a new blaster, his trademark toy baton being sadly absent.   Want to see more?  Read on!
