Today in Figure of the Day: Star Wars Rebels Stormtrooper! It's a 5-jointed, exaggerated, 3 3/4-inch action figure with a gun. It's pretty neat - I saw this wave at Target over lunch today, so I can say they're making the rounds right now, which I didn't see prior to writing and posting all these reviews. That's what I get. Anyway, read on!
Here's another neat one - C-3PO from Star Wars Rebels is today's Figure of the Day! It hits most of the buttons for being a good toy (it can sit!), with a little more attention needed on the face paint. I still like it - will you? Read on!
Figure of the Day returns with R5-G19! The venerable build-a-droid R5 mold returns and while we've had many robots over the last few years, this is a new one from Return of the Jedi. The robot on the back of the package is a different design than the actual figure, so it's pretty exciting to see another possible figure in the future, maybe, who knows. Want to know more? Read on!

The 6-inch Biker Scout from Hasbro is very OK. It's not great. It's actually on the border of good. Smudges on the chest seem unnecessary, the gun is too small and the grip splits easily, and on the two I was examining close-up the visors on the helmet were both off-center in different directions. The mold is OK, the bike is good, but the execution needs some help. Read on!
Since the idea was introduced to fans, the idea of a Walgreens-exclusive Boba Fett Concept Armor brought about much anxiety to fans. Would he be made in big enough numbers to cover all 5,000 locations? Would the pre-sale online cover people? Would you have to drive around with a bunch of sick people sneezing on you while you hunt toys because of your crippling toy addiction? Let's just look at the figure - he's pretty good. Read on!
The 6-inch Luke Skywalker in his Jedi gear may not be perfect, but it's one of my favorites. It does not exceed its mandate, but it works - hands hold weapons. Belt fits. Lightsaber hangs on hook. Figure stands, sits. It's rare that a figure can do pretty much anything you expect it to and not have severe balance issues - his joints are nice and tight. I've been talking all day so I'm exhausted. Read on!
Check out the Shadow Scout in today's Figure of the Day! It's similar to some 3 3/4-inch figures, but it's 6-inches tall. The blaster, however, is basically the same size for some reason. Read on for more!
I got this swell Shadow Stormtrooper Commander 6-inch action figure in the mail over the weekend, and it is indeed swell. Essentially a black, backpack-free Sandtrooper, it's basically exactly what you would want in such a thing. 3 guns cast in dark grey. Pauldron. Glossy helmet lenses. Read on!
That was fast! If you ordered your Imperial Shadow Squadron set at Target.com on Wednesday, you might have it waiting at your front door today - mine arrived already in a nice big box (albeit with a couple of dents on the packaging). It looks pretty slick, and if you didn't get an order in don't worry - it should be in stores very soon!
For those who missed the boat, the set includes a Scout Trooper,
Sandtrooper Shadow Stormtrooper Commander, and Speeder Bike in black.
It's super tall! The Star Wars Rebels AT-DP Vehicle is able to seat one 3 3/4-inch scale action figure with another popping out the top hatch. It has moving legs, a firing rocket, and a rotating head - all of which you can see, after the jump.
Apparently Zeb has a cool hat! This is the Star Wars Rebels Hero Series Deluxe Zeb action figure. Enjoy it in good health. There are pictures after the jump.
This is exhausting. At NYCC, Hasbro also revealed new Mission Series Star Wars Action Figures 2-packs. R2-D2 and Yoda, Ezra Bridger as Imperial Cadet and Kanan Jarrus again, Luke Skywalker in Stormtrooper Disguise and Princess Leia, plus Hoth Luke and Hoth Han are all on deck.
Saga Legends continues! NYCC reveals were designed to make the kids of the 1980s ecstatic with Lando Calrissian in Skiff Guard Disguise, Han Solo in Bespin Jacket, plus Luke Skywalker in X-Wing Pilot outfit. It's a good day!
