Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,708

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, December 30, 2011

Oh Todo 360. We first heard about him from an early figure listing which didn't come to include him-- but we got him later, and he's pretty cool. (Only his head moves, though.)  Should you bring the Seth Green robot home? Read on!

Another Geonosian Warrior came out with the new version of Delta Squad, which may be in stock at a Toys R Us near you. Go buy it.  But is this figure worth it?  Read on!

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, December 28, 2011

Today let's look at the animated incarnation of Ki-Adi-Mundi, a Jedi with a pretty surprisingly large amount of action figures behind him.  Is this incarnation worth it?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,705

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 27, 2011

It says "Hasbro" on the box, but this Star Tours Yoda is more of an abomination.  It's ugly, and there are three variations of it involving lightsaber and skin coloring.  Should you get it? (No.) Read on!

Walmart Exclusive Star Wars Markdowns: YMMV

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, December 26, 2011

Tis the season for randomly marked-down products!  Walmart has marked down their Ultimate Gift Sets for Star Wars as well as Transformers and Beyblade, but prices vary by store-- the $30 sets were as little as $15 in my neighborhood, which is a steal given you get 5 figures in the set.

This is the Yoda which was delayed from 2010.  It's... well, it has a lot of articulation, but is it worth ten friggin' bucks?  Probably not, but read on!

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, December 23, 2011

It's R2-D2, the way you always wanted him... as a reindeer.  This 2002 exclusive was in short supply, but thanks to the collective short attention span of modern collectors he's cheap again!  Rejoice, and read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,702

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 22, 2011

This 2009 Han Solo gave us the figure with a stormtrooper belt, helmet, and armor for some reason.  Well, it's still a decent figure, but getting his head right seems to be dang near impossible.  Read on!

Hard-To-Find UK Version of Silver R2-D2 On eBay Cheap

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, December 21, 2011

There are two Silver R2-D2 figures.  One was a vac-metal sold carded based on the 2000 Power of the Jedi figure mold.  The second was a Saga Collection figure in a UK-only boxed set with a matte finishe, based on the Vintage 2004 mold.  The set was pretty tough to get in the USA... but now you don't need to get it.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,701

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, December 21, 2011

He's green now! The second attempt on R2-X2 seems to be the "official" one thanks to some bunghole suggesting the 2006 release be black. Ah well. Whose fault do you think that was? I sure don't know.  Anyway, read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,700

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 20, 2011

Welcome to day 1,700 of Adam Held Hostage with Lumiya, a figure I assumed would never, ever see plastic.  I'm thrilled she exists, but did the Marvel villain turn out acceptably?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,699

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,698

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, December 16, 2011

From 1999, or "thousands of years ago," this Darth Maul had saber-swinging action before it was cool.  Or retro.  Or whatever.  Is it worth picking up, now that it's super-cheap?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,696

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, December 14, 2011

Behold, the very first and very angry Barriss Offee!  Portrayed on TV as a younger hero-in-training, the first Hasbro action figure is a stylized, seemingly fully adult woman.  Is this 2003 release worth a look?  Read on!
