Figure of the Day: Day 1,364

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, September 6, 2010

Hey, what could be better than Princess Leia in some sexy dress she used to get a lizard man in the sack?  Anything, that's what!  (We kid.) But seriously, this figure didn't do too well in some markets and a lot of Shadows of the Empire fans already forgot she exists-- odd for a 2008 figure.  Should you grab her?  Read on!

Image Bank: VC03 Han Solo (Echo Base Outfit)

By Mike — Monday, September 6, 2010

While Hasbro has captured the likeness of Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher, they sometimes struggle with Harrison Ford. VC03 Han Solo (Echo Base Outfit)'s headsculpt is fairly decent, but not the best. He does come with cool welding accessories and Patagonia-ish cold weather jacket along with some recycled parts, so he's definitely worth picking up. Here's hoping that the rumored "ultimate" Bespin version is the bees knee's. Thoughts on the new Han? Make sure to post your comments!

Figure of the Day: Day 1,363

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, September 3, 2010

He looks alien, and he looks like he stepped out of a 1970s comic book.  He's Djas Puhr, alien bounty hunter!  The figure has way more detail than the original costume likely had, and has some nice hidden articulation to boot.  Is he worth the nothing he currently sells for?  Read on!

Image Bank: VC02 Leia (Hoth Outfit)

By Mike — Thursday, September 2, 2010

Clearly the best interpretation so far, VC02 Leia in Hoth Outfit is no frills, with only a removable vest and blaster to feature. Yet the power of the sculpt and paint detail speaks volumes in its subtlety. You don't need a committee to appreciate that, laser brain.

What do you think of the new Leia? Make sure to add your comments!

Figure of the Day: Day 1,362

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 2, 2010

There's still no Ziro the Hutt toy, but last year we did get a low run of Ziro's Assassin Droid! This repaint of IG-86 has great articulation and arguably the best paint job.  Should you get it?  Of course!  But read on anyway.

Figure of the Day: Day 1,361

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, September 1, 2010
