Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,021

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, March 13, 2013

Based on one of his first appearances anywhere, this General Grievous animated action figure features a slightly different color scheme.  The bone armor is more blue, the cape has no red lining.  As such, it's distinctive.  But is it worth a look?

If you're looking for something different, Orbitdyne (aka Seth Longmire) posted a really spiffy custom 12-inch figure called the Orbit Zenith Man, which is a colorful, metallic nod to the original Uzay Blue Stars figure.  If you were wondering just what good might come from those new 12-inch, seemingly cheapo figures, you'll be pleased to see the answer with this new picture.

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 12, 2013

Check out the new Orimaarko, a remake of a 1998 figure which was a remake of a 1984 figure. He uses a mix of new and (mostly) existing parts, plus he has some pretty nice gear which helps cuishon the blow of the ever-increasing price points.  Was this eyepatched online exclusive worth your while?

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,019

Hey kids, it's a Blue R8-Series Astromech Droid! This is another Star Tours Droid Factory figure.  It's nice.  Were it at Target, you'd merely buy it and enjoy it, rather than have it be the root of acute droid anxiety.  I like it.  Will you? A New Direction For Lucasfilm Animation

Q&A: Movie Heroes, Yoda Line, Endor AT-AT, and Other Things You Can't Have

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, March 10, 2013

It's Monday, so let's keep Q&A a-goin'! Let's talk Yoda line look because I love to be depressed. And why not talk about Ahsoka since the last season of The Clone Wars wrapped up and spoilers are now merely facts? And what of that AT-AT from Endor? Well... it's another annoyance, really. We have a lot of those this week. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,018

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, March 8, 2013

Gotta have my Pops!  Davish Krail has a less recognizable name on the box, but it's a pilot and that's most of what you needed to know anyway.  Interestingly, the figure differs from the build on the back of the box.  Want to know the difference?

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,017

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, March 7, 2013

Hasbro improved a mold in a big way with Chewbacca last year.  First released in 2011, the figure needed a tiny bit of work, which it got for the 2012 reissue.  Better paint? Check.  Improved articulation?  Close enough.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,016

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, March 6, 2013

This Jango Fett is the one you're most likely to find at an American toy store right now - and it's pretty unlikely you'll see his Geonosis Arena Battle set outside clearance aisles.  He's based on a 2002 mold, and is also the newest version of the character, meaning this is the one that kids could end up with if they get the new-for-2013 Jango Fett Slave I vehicle.  And he doesn't really fit.  But I digress, the figure is interesting enough and the set (as a whole) is nice.

By Mike — Tuesday, March 5, 2013
