By Adam Pawlus — Friday, August 20, 2010

Figure of the Day: Day 1,351

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, August 18, 2010

A former Fan's Choice candidate, and also a figure Hasbro once said couldn't ever be done with a removable helmet, this Rebel Trooper in Scout Trooper Disguise (or Nik Sant, maybe) is pretty swell.
