Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,521: Admiral Piett (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 2, 2018

A new figure with a lot of shared parts, the Admiral Piett (The Black Series 6-Inch) will go nicely with your General Veers.  The former is shared onlnie, the latter is now hitting a Walgreens theoretically near you.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,520: R5-D8 (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 27, 2018

Amazon's exclusive R5-D8 (The Black Series 6-Inch) is unlike previous versions of this specific droid.  Previous representations usually look a lot like R5-D4, with the blue arm panels.  Some even have yellow stripes in the red columns on the chest.  This one is colored almost exactly like the 1979 Kenner R4-D4, which doesn't mean that it necessarily matches the on-screen droid that served Jek Porkins - but there's not a lot of reference, either.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,519: 4-LOM (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 25, 2018

The 4-LOM (The Black Series 6-Inch) brings you another bounty hunter in the oh-so-popular larger scale - and the head is clear green, so shine a light through that for double-plus fun.   It includes a blaster.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,518: Princess Leia Organa (Hoth, Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 20, 2018

She's new! Well, newish. The Princess Leia Organa (Hoth) is one of precious few new "classic" figures this year - and she has articulated boots!  And a weird blaster.  But hey, it's a new Leia - we don't get many of those.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,515: Enfys Nest (Swoop Bike, Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 11, 2018

Packed with her Swoop Bike, this Enfys Nest action figure looks great!  There's no removable helmet, but the sci-fi meets local flavor costume combines armor, fur, and a cape to bring to life a Zorro-like mantle that could be handed down and return in later installments. It's a pretty good figure with a pretty nice bike.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,514: Stormtrooper (Mimban, AT-DT, Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 6, 2018

The Stormtrooper (Mimban, AT-DT) is really cool and comes with one of the best Hasbro 3 3/4-inch scale vehicles in recent memory - it explodes!   The figure doesn't, though - it's just a nice trooper that you'll wish you could easily build into your armies, and you can't.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,513: Han Solo (Kessel Run Millennium Falcon, Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 4, 2018

The Han Solo (Kessel Run Millennium Falcon) may be popping up in a playset later this year - we'll need to wait and see how many changes they make - but you can get get it with a rather small Falcon right now!  The figure isn't bad - it's as Kenner-y as anything we've had in recent years.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,512: Chewbacca (Vandor-1 Playset, Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, August 30, 2018

This Chewbacca (Vandor-1 Playset) is like the other one, but with goggles.  I think the growls are slightly different, but that may not be a selling point - the playset is, though.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,510: Gamorrean Guard (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, August 23, 2018

Target's exclusive Gamorrean Guard (The Black Series 6-Inch) has an opening mouth - and I'm having a lot of fun with that.   Use any food you may have to engage your toy and also be mad that you can't find one, because it's awesome, and I'd love to get 1 or 2 more of these.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,509: Doctor Aphra (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, August 21, 2018

Fresh from SDCC, it's Doctor Aphra!  This figure will be sold on the traditional 6x9 cardback later this year, but if you got her and her droid pals in the 3-pack you know she's got a good range of movement and joints that actually move and work well.  Hasbro did a great job with the newest Fan's Choice figure.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,508: 0-0-0 (Triple Zero, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, August 16, 2018

Fresh from Comic-Con, it's 0-0-0 (Triple Zero)!  This is a black C-3PO repaint - this is the 2010 Vintage mold.  Want to see more?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,507: Tobias Beckett (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, August 14, 2018

It's Woody! The Tobias Beckett (The Black Series 6-Inch) turned out pretty well, has the requisite amount of articulation, with perfectly nice painting.  The facial hair could be a smidgen better, but it's still consistent with the quality this line has given us as of late.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,506: BT-1 (Beetee, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, August 9, 2018

Attack R2-D2!  Well, not really.  This BT-1 figure has removable weapons and panels to cover the holes those weapons leave.  The paint job is great, and it uses a build-a-droid mold with filled in holes for the lower body leg holes.  I like it.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,505: Rebel Trooper (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, August 7, 2018

Check out the Rebel Trooper (The Black Series 6-Inch) figure!  He has a helmet, a blaster, and the Death Star plans from Rogue One.  That's how you cross generations.  The articulation is exceptional, so of course it's going to be hard to troop-build this one.  Read on!
