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?

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,959

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, December 17, 2012

It's the Shock Trooper, 2012 style!  The sculpt is thinner, the deco is crisp, but it lacks some of the damage from before.  I like it. And thankfully, you can probably find it out.  Want to know more?

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,958

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, December 14, 2012

The Blue R4-Series Astromech Droid is like R2-D2 with a pointier head.  Well, part of it anyway. Big thanks to our pal Shannon for his assistance in making sure this guy got here where he belongs.  Was it worth it?

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,957

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 13, 2012

This Luke Skywalker in his Bespin outfit is one of my favorite figures of the year.  Also, all time.  It's wonderful.  Crisp lines in his outfit are remarkable.  A working holster is awesome.  Yellow hair is oh-so-retro.  He can stand, sit, and requires little futzing to get him to behave as a good toy should.  Hasbro, you've done well in my book!
