Walmart’s exclusive cardboard Kessel playset is finally starting to show up at brick and mortar stores. Thanks to reader vikingrobot for the report!
We’re heading to Star Wars Celebration this weekend and for those that can track me down, I’ll be giving away a few goodies. There will be two new SWCC fan badges and like Yak Face himself, they’ll be tough to acquire, especially the chase variant. You can only obtain this version via following us on Twitter and watching for our tweet revealing its location. Each badge will also include our 2019 SWCC Yak Face Collector Coin button. Remember, we’ll also be doing a Collecting Track meet-and-greet on Sunday, April 14 at 4:30pm (Room W476) where you can get our SWCC exclusive patch wedge.
I hope to see some of you there!
A new Yakfinities Customizing Challenge is now underway in the forums! This theme entails characters from Tatooine, Jedha, Jakku, or any other desert setting. As usual, submissions can be from official canon, fan fic, etc. We look forward to seeing another round of great customs!
It’s time to wind down the 2018/19 Yak’s Top Ten Lists with Yak’s Elite 25! There are 130 figures that are eligible for the Elite 25 list.
Note: Wish lists may be posted in the comments section of this article or the Yakface Forums, but please do not post your wish lists in this comments section AND in the forums.
Rules: Pick up to 25 figure from the list of winners you’d like to see done in 6” The Black Series scale. Only figures from the Yak’s Top Ten Lists are eligible for this round. The Vintage Collection vote will take place later in April.
We have updated our language for Yakface.com’s advertising, sponsor and affiliate disclosure statement to include our social media practices. We have also added a direct link to it in the lefthand column with the above image.
Now that some of us are starting to receive mighty Jabba’s Sail Barge, we’re curious what your first impressions are once having it in person! Are you blown away, or are you finding aspects you feel Hasbro should have done better on?
Forum member Lance Quazar has posted some nice pics and shared some observations for your viewing pleasure here. Check out the images, and share your own thoughts here or in the forums.
Personal Note: I’m reading from various buyers that the Ithorian corpse is not removable… that’s kind of a letdown. But overall most of what I’m reading is extremely positive, outside of some not-so-great experiences with boxes arriving damaged. I can’t wait to finally receive mine and get it all set up and hope we see several more offerings on par with this in the Star Wars 3.75″ line.
The current Yakfinities Customizing Challenge only has a few weeks left! Be sure to get your Concept Series entries in by the deadline of March 31.
Concept Series customs can be anything from figures based on Ralph McQuarrie concept artwork to something from you own imagination. What if Luke Skywalker had never gone into seclusion? Or if Leia had become a full fledged Jedi Knight? What if tauntauns could fly?
Check out the latest custom entries or submit your own after the jump!
If you have a Best Buy in your area, if may be worth your time to swing by and check out their toy/collector section. Quite a few various Star Wars items have been marked down (as well as other brands, such as Marvel). Good luck and as always your mileage may vary.
Yak’s Top Ten returns, with the theme switching over to something that until recently didn’t seem to be in Hasbro’s game plan… PLAYSETS! But of course, something has changed at Hasbro on this front (for the better).
What playsets do you want to see made in The Vintage Collection from? Post your TVC wish list HERE.
You can also do the same thing for the 6″ scale line in The Black Series. Post your 6″ TBS wish list right HERE.
Note: Wish lists may also be posted in the comments section of this article. You may post both a TVC and TBS list, but please do not post your wish lists in this comments section AND in the forums. And please indicate if you’re referring to TVC or TBS with each list.
