Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,051: Han Solo (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, November 6, 2013

So kids, let's upgrade to the 6-inch Han Solo, which  has alternate belts and alternate hands.  You'll probably spend at least an hour just futzing with him once you open one - it's quite good and fun to mess with.  You get two guns, too.  Could you ask for more?  Yes.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,050: Clone Commander Ponds (Battle of Geonosis: Jedi Knights)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 5, 2013

For some reason, it's Clone Commander Ponds!  A redecorated version of the once-nameless Clone Trooper Officer figure has retconned Mr. Ponds to the Battle of Geonosis. The yellow is a little different, and he has different accessories than previous yellow clones based on the 2003 Clone Wars movie-style mold... but should you buy it?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,049: Roan Shryne (Battle of Geonosis: Jedi Knights)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, November 4, 2013

Was he in the movie?  Well, he was in a few novels, so Hasbro managed to sneak out Roan Shryne as an action figure in the just-released Toys R Us exclusive Gunship packs.  You'll probably want to snag it if you're a book fan, and if not, well, it's still movie-ish enough for my liking.   Read on!

Q&A: Biggs, Rancho Obi-Wan, Vehicles, and Other Stuff Because Why Not

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, November 3, 2013

So which Biggs is best? Sure, let's look. And did you drag your feet on the Amazon Slave I vehicle? If so... why??? Finally, let's talk about Rebels because I don't have anything to share and we have space to fill. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,048: Sarissa Jeng (Battle of Geonosis: Jedi Knights)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, November 1, 2013

Lady Jedi toys are uncommon, so Sarissa Jeng is pretty exciting to see.  Her legs are recycled, but the rest of her seems new despite being similar to Ki-Adi-Mundi.  The actress in stills looks quite cute - how is the figure?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,047: Sephjet Josall (Battle of Geonosis: Jedi Knights)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, October 31, 2013

I assume people must really love Sephjet Josall, because I saw someone swap out the figure for a Qui-Gon at a Toys R Us this afternoon.  (May an elephant sit upon your house.)   Based on a background extra in Attack of the Clones, this is a Luke figure with a new "skirt" and a new head - and it works! Nicely done.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,046: Pablo-Jill (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, October 30, 2013

Now here's one you'll like.  Pablo-Jill was released a few years ago with an excellent statue of a figure - gorgeous - but this new one is way more articulated, with the best wrists I've seen on any Jedi figure to date.  Actual ball-and-socket wrists make this completely articulated figure streets ahead of the competition, easily making it the best prequel Jedi of the season.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,045: Stormtrooper (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 29, 2013

So there's a new Stormtrooper in the 3 3/4-inch The Black Series line which you can buy online now as most stores haven't gotten any yet. It's basically the Dewback/Vintage 2010 Sandtrooper, minus the pauldron and backpack, with a different belt, and cooler guns.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,044: 41st Elite Corps Clone Trooper (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, October 28, 2013

Hasbro did a new take on the 41st Elite Corps Clone Trooper, and it's not really an improvement.  Several paint applications are missing, and it's best if you take this as a new squad rather than an update of the existing one. Read on!

Q&A: Retcon, Darth Vader, Black Friday Exclusives, and a Bit More

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, October 27, 2013

This week, let's look at reconning - that is, the changing of "history" and "facts" within the Star Wars universe. Remember Hasbro's clone-faced AT-AT Drivers? Let's also look at good Darth Vader figures for kids. There are many. And how about Black Friday Exclusives - should we expect any? All this and more, just read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,043: Luminara Unduli (The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, October 25, 2013

I just got 6-inch wave 2 in the mail, but I already wrote Luminara Unduli up from The Black Series!  So read that.  She's a new sculpt with a removable hat, good deco, and an excellent sculpt, if you can get beyond the fact that your 2005 figure was probably fine.  Anyway.  Read on!
