Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,966

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, December 26, 2012

It's Snaggletooth, sort of!  From Target's still-available Vintage 3-Packs, this is an update of the creature from the first movie, but it doesn't look a lot like the original Kenner action figure.  It's really cool though. 

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,965

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 25, 2012

As one of the last Christmas figures, this Holiday Jawa works as a non-Christmas figure too.  He's holding a 3 3/4-inch scale Training Remote, an accessory which to this day still hasn't really been done for full-height action figures.  Beyond the retooled arms and unique eyes, it's like the wonderful 1996 Jawa action figure.  Did you get one?

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,964

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, December 24, 2012

Hey kids, it's Santa Yoda!  One of four "Holiday Edition" sets (and one of only two that ended up at the intended retailer), Yoda managed to give fans a new sculpt with some swell accessories, all based on a vintage Ralph McQuarrie painting.  It even came with a Christmas Card!  It's a heck of an ice figure for 2003, despite the then-high price of about $12.95.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,963

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, December 21, 2012

It's a blue R9-Series Astromech Droid! It's at Star Tours in Orlando, so if you want one, it'll cost you.  I think it's worth it.  The figure, I mean.  The trip?  Who knows.  I don't know where you live.  Maybe it'll be worth escaping the terrors that is the holiday season.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,962

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 20, 2012

This Pit Droid came out earlier in the year and was sold in a few configurations.  It's the same figure, though.  Did you get one?  You probably should.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,961

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, December 19, 2012

This R2-D2 is pretty amazing.  Downsized and packed with features, it's actually worth the ten bucks.  Those glasses?  Removable.  The lightsaber pops up, a sensorscope is included, this is really the best R2-D2 you can buy.  Except it's shorter than every other Astromech you own.

Quick Pics and Video: Gentle Giant Promotional Jar Jar Binks Bust with Santa Hat

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 18, 2012

Have you see this year's Gentle Giant Holiday Bust for Star Wars? It's Jar Jar Binks with a nifty santa hat and electronic lights! Numbered and limited to barely over 200 units, this particular version does not include Wald as a companion piece, but there is a swell magnetic base which masks the bust's "on" switch. There are multiple light blinking modes, and yes, we've got a video after the jump.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,960

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 18, 2012

Possibly appearing in an underpriced 8-pack at a Walmart near you,  this late-arriving Obi-Wan Kenobi is actually pretty good.  I hate that the battery is sealed inside, but the design other than that isn't half bad.  He's bulkier to fit the electronics, but the removable "skirt" lets him sit and the detail is quite good.  Should you get one?
