Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,997

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, February 7, 2013

Let's look at Ahsoka in her first and so far only "realistic" action figure. She has 4 lightsabers in all, with 2 lit and 2 hilts.  It's not a bad buy.  Did you pick her up yet?

It's Clone Commander Neyo! Initially sold in an exclusive gift set, this unique trooper has a helmet you don't see many other places.  I like it.  Will you?  Probably.

While I keep hitting "refresh" waiting for the Todd Glass Show to update, why don't you read about the 2012 Vintage Collection Weequay figure?  The 1983 original was good, the 1997 remake was magnificent, so the 2012 version must be perfection right? 

Video Review: Jocasta Nu Hasbro Star Wars Action Figure

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, January 19, 2013

While a highly-demanded action figure, Jocasta Nu has been created as a lavishly-packaged, high-quality, and high-price exclusive action figure.  Shipped in a spiffy thick box with a Vintage carded figure inside, Madame Nu includes a lightsaber, bust of Count Dooku, holocron, purse, and of course the figure.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,979

Meet the Blue R7 Series Astromech Droid! It's not the same as the 2008 release, but it is different enough to warrant your attention.  It might not warrant the trip to  Orlando to get one at Disney Hollywood Studios... but well, it was for me!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,972

Check out the Imperial Navy Commando, part of the last big boxed set we got based on the lesser-console exclusive levels of The Force Unleashed.  It's a good figure, despite being unrecognizable to fans of the game series who played it on the Xbox 360 or Playstation 3.

Behold, the best-ever Watto action figure on the market today!  The price isn't bad, the deco is better than the 1999 version, plus he has a swell companion figure.  Do you know which one this is?  You will! 

Video Review: Target Exclusive Special Edition Darth Maul Tin Fighter Pods Set

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, November 5, 2012

It's on sale for a couple of  bucks off right now! The Target Special Edition Darth Maul Tin Fighter Pods Set should be widely available near you, and it's pretty good.  Eight of the figures are repacks from series 1, but there are several unique clone troopers, a metallic Darth Maul, and the first-ever figure of Ziro the Hutt plus some uniquely-shaped pods.  I won't lie to you, I happily paid full price for it just to get a Ziro.  Check out all the new little figures after the break.

Video Review: Nien Nunb Star Wars The Vintage Collection Action Figure

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 1, 2012

Let's look at another new Vintage action figure - but be warned, I hear they're starting to sell out and it hasn't even been a week since they hit! Today it's the updated Nien Nunb, which is a new version of the 1983 and 1997 figures, both of which were exceptional in their days and are still quite good. Now he has a blaster based on the boxy 1980s version, plus a 1997-esque rifle and 14 points of articulation. I love it. I assume you will too. Watch the video after the break!

Video Review: Lumat Star Wars The Vintage Collection Action Figure

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, October 31, 2012

Oh yes, it's Lumat!  More than just a Graak repaint, this figure is a redeco of the new Logray body with some swell new additions.  It's an online exclusive, plus one of the last remakes of unmade 1980s action figures.  Should you care?  I do, this is one of my favorite Ewoks of the year... and we got a bunch in 2012.  Watch the video after the jump!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,854

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, July 23, 2012

I bought this one in 2005 and opened it about a month ago, which speaks of my enthusiasm.  Lava Reflection Darth Vader is obviously Anakin Skywalker but you know the drill. Is it worth it?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,846

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, July 11, 2012

While waiting for new toy news, why not read about the Obi-Wan Kenobi that came with the Naboo Royal Fighter that you passed up? It's just different enough to make you mad, after all!  Read on.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,821

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, June 6, 2012

It's an Obi-Wan Kenobi!  This figure came from the Order 66 line of 2-packs, but isn't necessarily worth tracking down on its own merits. Want to know more? Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,813

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, May 25, 2012

Celebrate 35 years of Star Wars!  We're looking back to 1995 with the very first modern R2-D2 from Kenner!  It's pretty cool.  Want to know more about this relic? Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,805

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, May 15, 2012
