He's new! And this FOTD is too long-- but it's Savage Opress, a brand-new figure you probably don't have yet. It's not bad, and it's on par with the bulk of Jedi figures in the line since 2010, meaning no ankles. It looks great though-- read on!
A tipster emailed me to point out that the lightsaber in General Grievous' Attack Cycle is actually modeled after Sha'a Gi's unique weapon from the original Clone Wars micro series. I did not notice that before! "The More You Know," and all.
It's new! So new, it just hit a few days ago. The Imperial Navy Commando Officer is sort of a Stormtrooper, but not. He has a unique helmet and pauldron, plus a really good holster. What more do you need to know? Read on!
We wind this week down with Kit Fisto, the much-improved 2010 edition of the figure from The Clone Wars. If you like a good figure, this is one to add to your shopping list. Plus he has two lightsabers! Can you beat that? Read on!
In addition to the Delta Squad set (and the Vintage Y-Wing, a couple of smaller vehicles, the Stealth Operations Clone Trooper, and a few other items) Toys R Us just started stocking the Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Sith & Imperial Troopers. 4 of the 5 figures appear to be new sculpts, and it's pretty good for $39.99.

It's the brand-new Scorch! This is the new 2011 one sold at Comic-Con and it should be in Toys R Us retail stores very soon. So obviously, if you missed these guys before you're interested-- but is it worth the $40-$50 asking price to upgrade your existing Delta Squad? Read on!
We turn 1600 today! We celebrate with a look at one of our favorite new figures, the ARC Trooper Commander which is, obviously, heavily inspired by Clone Fordo. He has enough gear for two distinctive looks, so is he worth the gas or shipping costs? Read on, and thanks for your support!
Hasbro has no shortage of Darth Maul figures, and this one was particularly tough to get at first. As one of the "Masters of the Dark Side," the set was quite scarce-- single figures came out later, and now it's cheap enough for you to get easily. Should you? Read on!
It's IG97, the "killer" robot. Based on the newest Battle Droid chassis, the figure has loads of articulation, a good amount of gear, and a comic-accurate head to boot. You'll want this one-- assuming you can still find it, which is entirely possible. Read on!
Science fact: fans love Natalie Portman. So it's no surprise we eventually would get more toys of her, like this Padme Amidala in a black gown thing from 2007. She can't sit, but hey, she can stand! Find out if she's a must-have, and read on.

He's small and fishy. Robonino was one of those figures fans started asking for, subsequently got, and didn't really buy. His Target-exclusive gift set is still available nearly 9 months after its introduction, which is a shame, as it's a nice set that should sell through. Should you get one? Read on!
The Hasbro exclusive Revenge of the Jedi Death Star Figure set sold out, along with most of the popular Hasbro exclusives, late Saturday. Hasbro even sold the sample that they had displayed in their booth, giving credence to the low production quantities of this exclusive.
