Toyguide Update: VC107 Weequay

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with the addition of Weequay (VC107) from the Vintage Collection.

PROS: What a difference 16 years can make. That’s how long it’s been since we’ve received a new Weequay out of Hasbro and thankfully, this new iteration doesn’t disappoint (much). The figure hits all the right marks in terms of deco, articulation and detail especially that iconic craggy face. The overall stance of the figure is pretty much in keeping for what this figure needs to be… a guard and goon for Jabba. The accessories are sparse but we do get his signature vibro-ax and a blaster. The new Weequay looks amazing with the other skiff and palace guards we’ve received in recent years and I can only imagine how good he might look on the deck of a huge sail barge (wink, wink).

CONS: Despite this being the definitive version we’ve all waited for, it does have a few minor faults. First, the mismatched joint pins in the knees are a complete eyesore but thankfully, they are only visible when its knees are bent or when looking at the figure from behind. Second, it would have put this figure over the top if he would have included a holster to stow his included blaster. Third, since this figure is available only as an online exclusive, collectors won’t get the chance at “guard building” this guy for dioramas as they might have otherwise.

Head to the toyguide for the full image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this figure is worth adding to your collection.

Toyguide Update: VC113 Republic Trooper

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with the addition of the Republic Trooper (VC113) from the Vintage Collection.

PROS: With the Republic Trooper, Hasbro has created a fantastic figure in virtually all aspects. This figure is loaded with articulation, accessories and paint apps and for the most part, is very faithful to the Old Republic source material. One cool feature is that you can swap around the ammo and knife/sheath accessories for custom configurations or to recreate Commander Jace Malcom, a main character in the SWTOR MMO.

CONS: A few minor quibbles. First, this figure is part of the online exclusive wave, so you won’t find him in stores. Second, the deco is a bit clean for a battle hardened Republic Trooper . Finally, the “Havoc Squad” unit logos are missing from the shoulder armor.

Head to the toyguide for the full image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this figure is worth adding to your collection.

The Real Reason Behind the Election Results

If you would like to know the real reason behind Tuesday’s election results, look no further than last night’s episode of South Park. No matter your political affiliation, this episode is hilarious especially when the secret is revealed.

Warning, there some pretty crass language in this episode so get out the earmuffs for the little ones.

Last TVC Wave in all its Glory

Forum member Scarrviper has shared some spectacular photos of some of the last figures from the TVC line in the forums.

Many of us have gotten these figures already from some of our online sponsors, but for those who have not yet been able to enjoy these amazing figures yet, head on over to the forums and see just how great these figures are when situated in dioramas (such amazing photography by Scarrviper doesn’t hurt either!).
