I haven't seen the First Order Snowtrooper Officer in stores since I got mine last month, but hey - it's new! This exclusive takes a plain Snowtrooper (which isn't out yet) and adds a pauldron, thus making it a better figure than the regular release is likely to be. If you can get it, it's pretty slick - so good hunting. Read on!
The armored Flametrooper has neat armor but weird weapon integration - you can't quite plug in the backpack or torch. Is it worth paying up to get the orange body armor with First Order symbols? Read on!
Check out the First Order Snowtrooper. It's not bad - nice gun, decent sculpt, and for some reason space Wolverine claws for cosplay purposes. Is it worth adding to your growing army, or is it time to admit the grim, bony fingers reaching from the grave have deprived you of the joy you once experienced from toys as a child? Read on!
You love this guy. You'll like this figure. Boba Fett comes with clamp-on armor that feels like it fell out of a 1992 Kenner sketchbook - it's ugly, and it's neat. You may love it! You may not. That's up to you. I think it's neat enough to share with you, so read on!
Today in Figure of the Day: Luke Skywalker! Loosely inspired by the Sandstorm Scene and whatever was in the water at Kenner in the late 1980s, this Armor Up version of the Jedi Knight features the same sculpt and lightsaber from last year, but with wacky wrappings, belts, and a backpack for reasons nobody will ever truly understand. Is it worth the $13? Of course not - but it's weird and fun anyway, so read on!
Meet Goss Toowers - the Resistance's famous mechanic. Dig him up and shake his hand, and then wonder just what role he plays in the movie. He's got awesome metallic gloves and a spiffy helmet, but is he a character or is he just scenery? We'll find out soon, but until then we can look at the figure and squint. Read on!
We got a new Astromech with BB-8, so let's enjoy a new protocol droid with PZ-4CO! She's blue, she has a long neck, and she looks and feels more toy-like than a lot of other recent figures. For this reason, why wouldn't you want to buy one? Read on!
Hasbro's new Battle Action Millennium Falcon is the best toy for the holiday season according to the Telegraph. It may not be a close to scale B.M.F., but features plenty of electronic sounds and lights, not to mention a Nerf firing canon, that should be just the right kind of play magic that would attract the parental demographic looking for gift giving ideas for their The Force Awakens mesmerized kids.
Meet General Hux! It's a new character that totally isn't Denis Leary cosplaying as Toht from Raiders. He's got a long coat, a short gun, and a hat - what more could you ask for? If it was First Order logos on his sleeves, you'd get that too. Anyway, it's neat - read on!
Back in September we got Kylo Ren. And now we got another one, with new wacky extra weapons - they're basically wings with Weequay pikes at the end of them. Is it worth re-buying? Does it matter if you're a completist? Read on!
If you're like me, you're a) cheap and b) don't have the Target exclusive Star Wars The Force Awakens Black Series 6in Figure Set just yet. Right now it's in stock for $39.99 and it ships free - plus if you use the code BESTGIFT during checkout, you get $10 (25%) off. I just placed my order, and if you don't have yours yet it's as good of a time as any to do so. Click here to check availability.
Thanks for the tip, Phil!
Toys R Us is offering a deal from now through November 21! "20% off ALL Star Wars 3.75" figures & vehicles." What they don't tell you is that some other items are on sale, and the asterisk is that Black Series doesn't count. My advice to you - scan every item you see, just in case what you want is on aisle.
An Entertainment Earth exclusive, the desert flavor of the Stormtrooper Officer comes with a red pauldron and a totally different paint job on his Assault Walker. It's a little whiter than the jungle trooper, and looks like it should fit right in on a Jakku shelf. It's also shipping right now. Read on!
Walk the plank! Or don't. This is Sarco Plank, a new alien menace who has popped up in at least one of the books so far. He's due to be in The Force Awakens and if I were a betting man, I'd assume in a very limited role. Want to see more? Read on!
