Star Wars Doctor Aphra Action Figure Set from Hasbro Debuts at SDCC!

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, June 6, 2018

3589 With three figures and a bit of sticker shock, this year's first (possibly only) 3 3/4-inch Star Wars Comic-Con exclusive in San Diego has been revealed!  Doctor Aphra is joined by 0-0-0 and BT-1 from Marvel's Doctor Aphra and Darth Vader comic books.  They're good fun, and those who read the stories have been requesting the Doctor and especially her droids for years.  

The set comes in a vintage-era-inspired "Special" box, wrapped in that foil styling we're seeing on more convention exclusives as of late.   Pictures and Hasbro's press copy after the jump.  (Spoiler - it's $49.99.)

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,488: K-2SO (Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, June 6, 2018

It's more or less just different enough to make you mad! The K-2SO (Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)  has a sound chip and slightly  better antenna on the back - but it's functionally very similar.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,487: Captain Phasma (First Order Disguise, The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, June 4, 2018

Captain Phasma (First Order Disguise, The Last Jedi Line Look)  was meant for a main line release, but ended up almost not coming out - instead, you can find it as an Entertainment Earth exclusive.   She has a staff, a backpack, a cape, a blaster, and Finn too.   I love how both arms are pre-posed to hold either weapon, plus they painted her arms silver rather than molding them in a not-matching swirly color.  It's nice.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,486: Chewbacca (Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, May 30, 2018

Hopefully you saw the movie, because today we look at Chewbacca (Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)!  This awesome figure has a unique bandolier and a decent paint job.   And it's probably sold out at a store near you.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,485: Wampa (with Luke Skywalker, Solo/The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, May 28, 2018

Packaged in a red and white box with The Last Jedi hues but shipping in the Solo assortments, the most-articulated Wampa yet is out in the Force Link 2.0 assortments - but at press time, the app and Force Link band require an as-of-yet unpublished firmware update to make it talk.  (We got one update to get most toys working, this one still doesn't.)   There are a lot of weird, wrong things about the toy's sound chip and box, but the jointed knees and elbows will get you your best Wampa yet.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,484: Supreme Leader Snoke (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, May 23, 2018

One of the more highly-requested figures after The Force Awakens came out, Supreme Leader Snoke has had a pretty good recent run as action figures.   This one has a cloth outfit and a generous slathering of articulation, and it's also the only completely new figure in the new 2018 The Vintage Collection so far.   As such, you're probably on your way to buy one.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,483: Finn (First Order Disguise, The Last Jedi Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, May 21, 2018

I'm a fan of this Finn, in part because it's exclusive where I work and in stock right now.  He has a great sculpt, a good costume, and above par accessories - and the voice clips are actually him.  Sure, some are from another movie, but it's something.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,482: Kylo Ren (with display base and metal helmet, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, May 16, 2018

The long-delayed Kylo Ren (with display base and metal helmet, The Black Series 6-Inch)  hit a few weeks ago, and it's surprisngly decent.  He has a metal helmet and a cloth cape, and if that weren't enough there's also a display base that can connect to Snoke's throne.   It's a lot of plastic, and you're charged accordingly.  Is it worth it? Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,481: Kylo Ren (The Black Series Centerpiece)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, May 14, 2018

With a better design, a better sculpt, better electronics, and an actual moment from the movies, this Kylo Ren Centerpiece figure is the 6-inch statue you never knew you wanted.  The box is cool, the figure is awesome, and the Force-frozen blaster bolt is the best.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,480: Darth Maul (Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, May 9, 2018

Possibly now available, but also likely to be sold out at a store near you, this Darth Maul is part of a new 2-pack that just hit.  The review was queued up before the app went live, but its Force Link 2.0 clips are a soundalike for some reason.   We are not amused.  But since the figure is fine, at least future generations won't have to be quite as sad when support for the app and firmware inevitably ends.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,479: Qui-Gon Jinn (Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, May 7, 2018

Part of a new 2-pack, the Qui-Gon Jinn (Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look) is pretty sharp.  The Maul it comes with is no slouch - there are some great accessories, and one confusing one.  It's worth your money, even if the Force Link clips are soundalikes.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,478: Han Solo (Speeder, Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, May 2, 2018

Let's look at Han Solo (Speeder, Solo: A Star Wars Story Line Look)!  He has a new outfit, a head that looks like Han but not really like the new actor - which means, we can now assume this is intentional - and a blue speeder that looks a lot like a book.  I like it.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,477: Dewback with Sandtrooper (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, April 30, 2018

New from Hasbro - if you can find it - is this Dewback with Sandtrooper (The Black Series 6-Inch)!  It's big and neat and probably sold out at a store near you.  It mixes elements of the newer CG Dewbacks with the original prop puppet, resulting in a surprisingly well-made lizard with articulated toes.  And an articulated tongue.  Find a better Dewback, I dare you.  Read on!
