Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,658: Klatooinian Raider (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, January 23, 2020

Hey, it's a Klatooinian Raider (The Vintage Collection)!  It's a new head on an old Weequay body, with a new hat and vest. Clever!  It's the pack-in with the really cool AT-ST Raider, an expensive - but absolutely worth it on sale - exclusive at Best Buy.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,657: First Order Stormtrooper (2019 TLJ, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, January 21, 2020

The 2019 First Order Stormtrooper (2019 TLJ, The Black Series 6-Inch)  looks a lot like figures from 2015 and 2018.  It also shares many parts with them, but this one was also available in a white box if that's your jam.  Do you need more?  Is it a great excuse to build an army while only buying one of everything?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,656: Heavy Infantry Mandalorian (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, January 18, 2020

We had a brief server outage, which is why we're late posting about this Heavy Infantry Mandalorian (The Black Series 6-Inch)  - which was on the blog as scheduled, so hooray tenacity.  It's a great figure and Best Buy seems to be out for now.  Will you have another crack at it in the future?  Well, I hope so, it's superb. I don't care if you don't like the show, this figure is so cool you old crusty people are going to want one.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,656: Cara Dune (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, January 14, 2020

It's Cara Dune (The Black Series 6-Inch)!  If you watched The Mandalorian, you probably want this figure. It's a good one - there's a knife, and the hole in the boot to store it in is well-hidden and nicely integrated.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,654: Offworld Jawa (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, January 9, 2020

The Egg! Is not included with the Offworld Jawa (The Black Series 6-Inch) but it's still a decent figure.  Its popularity will no doubt increase over time as people actually watch The Mandalorian, so go ahead and get one (or six) now before the rest of the world catches on.  Read on!

Target Restocking The Mandalorian Carbonized Graphite Edition

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, January 8, 2020

If you missed it - like I did - Hasbro did another run of the Star Wars The Black Series Carbonized Collection The Mandalorian Toy Figure (Target Exclusive) for US Target stores.   It's $24.99, and I would go as far as to say it looks good enough to  be worth the five bucks.   I saw a few out and about today, so check your local stores - and don't trust the in-store inventory checkers online, go look.  My store said they had none online, and sure enough, there it was.  Good hunting!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,653: Finn (Galaxy of Adventures 5-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, January 7, 2020

Oddly this Finn (Galaxy of Adventures 5-Inch) seems to have already dried up around these parts - as the only Hasbro Finn from The Rise of Skywalker, at least to date, you might want to get one if you stumble on one.  The 5-inch line has been reported as being as low as $3-$5 at various Kroger-owned grocery stores and Walmarts, and they're well worth that price.  Particularly Finn, as it's a nicely-sculpted figure with great articulation and no problems standing.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,652: MSE Droid (The First Order, Galaxy's Edge, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, January 2, 2020

The not-so-new MSE Droid (The First Order, Galaxy's Edge, The Black Series 6-Inch) is amazingly well-decorated, with astonishingly good wear-and-tear paint right on the body.  It has wheels, it's small, and you can get it at Galaxy's Edge in a big expensive pack with another Kylo Ren.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,650: Knight of Ren (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 26, 2019

Before The Rise of Skywalker, we had no idea what the deal with Knight of Ren (The Vintage Collection) was.  And now we still don't.  How does this not-quite-Darth Maul-looking guy shake out as a figure?  Quite well. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,648: Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 19, 2019

The Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight, The Black Series 6-Inch)  is possibly at a Walmart near you right now! It's an exclusive and it's a big upgrade over the previous edition, which had no vest, no cloak, and no blaster for the same price.  I like the new head a lot, even if he does have a little more color than I would expect for the scale.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,647: Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight, Galaxy of Adventures 5-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 17, 2019

Celebrate the end of the saga with a figure that comes from the movie that was the end of the saga back in 1983 with Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight, Galaxy of Adventures 5-Inch)!  This $10 Walmart exclusive looks pretty sharp and comes with a snazzy vest.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,646: Jet Trooper (Galaxy of Adventures 5-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 12, 2019

The Jet Trooper is a new figure, but what do we know about it?  Not much.  It flies, it's in the movie, and it has a quick-draw attack - and rocker ankles.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,645: Clone Commander Obi-Wan Kenobi (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 10, 2019

Possibly at a Walgreens near you, the Clone Commander Obi-Wan Kenobi (The Black Series 6-Inch) looks more like Ewan McGregor than the movie-specific Ewan figures put out in this scale.  He's got a lot of color in his face, which works well as his armor is pretty desaturated.  Is it worth buying this modified Clone Trooper figure?  Yes.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,644: Shadow Trooper (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 5, 2019

It's the Shadow Trooper (The Vintage Collection)! It's the Blackhole Stormtrooper I always wanted - they can call it what they want, but this is about as Russ Manning as these things get.  He has extra parts, too!  Read on.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,643: Darth Vader (Galaxy of Adventures 5-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 3, 2019

It's Darth Vader (Galaxy of Adventures 5-Inch)! He's big and chunky, and in that new scale and style that won't match your other toys - it's cool, though.  Provided you aren't overwhelmed in desk figures, this is a good one. Read on!
