You may already own an Episode VII action figure - if not, here's how to get it.
The advantages of obsessive completism rarely manifest themselves so clearly. This morning at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim, four new Astromech domes were unveiled for the new movie. These were said to be for various X-Wings and background elements, but one looked very familiar.
It turns out that it's because we reviewed something very close to it in 2012!
Check out Ezra Bridger (Cadet) from the Mission Series. It's the first alternate costume figure for one of the Rebels cast, so it's a pretty exciting thing to have here! He has a recolored helmet, a slightly shorter build, and a pretty great paint job. Read the full review!
From the Mission Series line, here's Luke Skywalker (Hoth)! He's got Wampa damage and is a pretty good modern update to the original 1982 Kenner action figure. I've been seeing a few of these in stores this week, so I'd suggest getting while the getting is good and the pricing isn't increased. Read on!
We looked at the 6-inch version last week, so today we'll look at the new Mission Series 2015 Han Solo (Hoth) action figure, hitting pegs and online shelves now. It comes with Luke and for the asking price, it's amazing. However you'll immediately lament the loss of trapdoor Tauntaun toys, and hopefully Hasbro will consider making a new one for us - because, let's be honest, that'd be pretty awesome. Read on!
Today, let's look at Luke Skywalker (Stormtrooper Disguise) in Figure of the Day! This one looks better in person than in the close-up shots as the head goes, but he’s normal Stormtrooper height with a helmet that’s a smidge too tight. Want to know more? Read on!
Hey kids, it's Hera Syndulla! This green, orange, and brown figure looks like it might fit right in with some of your existing pilots, plus she comes with a swell Stormtrooper Commander figure too. You don't have one, so get this one. Read on!
And now, back to Mission Series. This new Princess Leia is the first toy of this costume to be sold outside of a boxed set in nearly a decade, meaning she'll probably blow off the shelves in a hurry. Don't miss this one! Read on.
Today in Figure of the Day: the 6-inch Han Solo and Tauntaun! This is a great one. You should get one. It's a new sculpt across the board, and Han looks a lot like the just-releases Mission Series set too. Check it out, read on!
Behold, a new R2-D2! This one is packed with Yoda and sports a retractable arm in a door, plus he has better paint than the last Mission Series 2-pack release. They fixed his bald spot! Since you want to know more, read on.
These 2-packs are great! The new Yoda has separately jointed legs, a cane, and a lamp. We don't get many new The Empire Strikes Back Yodas, and now we've got three in the last year! This one comes with R2-D2. Read on!
The new TIE Pilot came out single-carded last month, and I just got a box in the mail yesterday with it repacked in a 2-pack with a Stormtrooper. (Smart move, Hasbro!) This means you can get this figure - it also means we've got another 2-3 weeks of FOTD ahead of us, so strap in and read on!
Check out Commander Bly, the odd man out in the Endor wave of Saga Legends. He doesn't have the brown stripe, he doesn't have a round peg on his binoculars, but he is pretty cheap - so why not read this review?
Check out the Jedi Temple Guard, a live-action style figure from The Clone Wars that's part of the Star Wars Rebels Saga Legends collection. It's in stores now if you can find it, and you should make the attempt to find one. Read on!
While its namesake may inspire giggles, the AT-DP Driver is a pretty great figure. It's a new character in a new costume, for a new vehicle, and it's only about six bucks when you can find one. The color isn't perfect, but the amount of paint and added detail is excellent. Read on!
Check out the new 2015 AT-AT Driver! With 5 points of articulation it's really an ideal figure for the vintage 1980 and the POTF2-era AT-AT vehicles, thanks to his lack of knees. Detail is pretty good, and if you get this one you can save your Saga Collection and Vintage Collection releases for the new, big, fancier AT-ATs. Read on!
