Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,962: Fifth Brother (The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 22, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Fifth Brother (The Retro Collection). It's a good one - I like the double-bladed lightsaber, I like the lack of a vinyl cape, I like how he stands and sits and fits in my vehicles. He's fun to fuss with and arguably one of the best figures to get thanks to his cool hat. (Sure he's not doing much on the show but at least you get a decent action figure.) Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,961: Darth Vader (Dark Times, The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 20, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Darth Vader (Dark Times, The Retro Collection). White what-if figure offers a cloth cape and a non-telescoping lightsaber, giving us a functionally very different Dark Lord of the Sith toy. Unfortunately the sculpting is the flattest of the wave, with some areas having less sculpted detail than the 1978 original. (But it's still really neat.) Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,957: Chewbacca (Prototype Edition - Orange Head, The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 6, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Chewbacca (Prototype Edition - Orange Head, The Retro Collection). Let's keep looking at 1970s- and 1980s-style action figures this week with a Crayola-infused Wookiee - Hasbro's fourth "prototype" release so far. He doesn't exactly deviate from the no-paint, many-colors pattern we've enjoyed but it's still fun to check out things like a bright yellow bowcaster and a Grinch-colored Wookiee-limb. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,956: NED-B (The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 1, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,956: NED-B (The Retro Collection). Ned's about $12, and looks a little modern, but is he worth it? I think so - it's a new retro-style droid and we don't get a heck of a lot of those. He has a hammer! Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,955: Grogu (& Ahsoka Tano, The Vintage Collection Deluxe)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, August 30, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Grogu (& Ahsoka Tano, The Vintage Collection Deluxe). "Grogu, his arms wide" sounds like a Tamarian metaphor, but it's just a Walmart exclusive accessory with a jointed head and not much else. It's great in the context of the set. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,954: Bo-Katan Kryze (6-Inch Value Figure, Black Logo Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, August 25, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Bo-Katan Kryze (6-Inch Value Figure, Black Logo Line Look). For a $5 figure, she's pretty good - but could use more paint on the torso. Still, an impressive figure for what you have to pay for her. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,953: Boba Fett (Throne Room, The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, August 23, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Boba Fett (Throne Room, The Black Series). He's pretty impressive - but costs a lot more. (I don't see where the money is going really.) It's still a good figure. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,951: Reva (Third Sister, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, August 16, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Reva (Third Sister, The Vintage Collection). She turned out great! The lightsaber is a little weird, but the articulation is excellent and unlike the Retro figure, she has great eyebrows. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,950: Darth Vader (The Dark Times, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, August 11, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Darth Vader (The Dark Times, The Vintage Collection). It's probably Hasbro's very best overall Darth Vader. The articulation is good - Vader can nod up and down. He has two extra hands. He has a hilt and a fully-lit lightsaber to. Short of a retool with a bashed-up helmet, I assume this is as good as a Darth Vader in this size is going to get for a decade. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,949: Ahsoka Tano (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, August 9, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Ahsoka Tano (The Black Series). This is her first 6-inch figure based on the live-action appearances, and with two lightsabers it's pretty great! The knee articulation is clever and the sculpting is, as always, great. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,948: Yoda (The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, August 4, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Yoda (The Retro Collection). It's very close to the 1980 original, . Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,947: The Client (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, August 2, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: The Client (The Black Series). Werner Herzog, as an Imperial gangster, complete with ice cream maker, can be yours right now. I like how this one turned out. Read on!

Revenge of Six Second Toy Talk - Installment #34, Value Channel Bo-Katan Kryze

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, July 31, 2022

As a wise man once said: "If that is the way the winds are blowing, let no one say I don't also blow." The kids are in to video, so I made a TikTok for @16bit.com and embedded the latest video below - a very short look at Hasbro's new $5 6-inch plastic-free packaged Star Wars Bo-Katan Kryze figure. She'll be in Figure of the Day soon, but I wanted to try out vertically-oriented video (which, let me tell you, is a real pain to do on non-phone hardware.)  Also she comes in a paper bag in a box.

You may also find it on the Tubes of You if that is of interest.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,946: Battle Droid (Droid Depot set, The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, July 28, 2022

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Battle Droid (Droid Depot set, The Black Series). It's from the Droid Depot 4-pack! The paint masks seem identical to the box figure and the carded Episode I figure, but the brown dirt/damage is lighter - so the Episode I/Droid Depot Battle Droids are virtually identical, and you probably can't tell there's any difference between this and the red/black boxed version without a side-by-side comparison.
