6″ TBS Yoda Lacks Knee Articulation

HT_TBS_yodapanel

According to this image courtesy of Hot Toys, it appears that the upcoming Black Series Yoda (#06) doesn’t feature articulation in the knees. Hot Toys lists the figures as having 22 points of articulation (and you thought we were crazy for breaking down the joints like that) while a figure like the 6″ Clone Trooper has 29 POA.

Click the image above for a closer look at that the pose in the bottom left corner. Disappointing this is.

Custom Troop Transport Now Available

HITG_trooptransport

Eric Berry from Hole in the Ground Productions has released for immediate sale their latest custom for 3-3/4″ figures – the Troop Transport

I didn’t think the vehicle was all that interesting when I first started work on it but I’m now in love with this thing. Lots of options. The rear bench seat is removable so you can place it on either side on the transport or take it out so it can haul standing troops, droids, or other cargo. Paint it grey and it would make a great vehicle for the Empire too.

Rebels Stormtrooper Up Close

Yakface forum member Trooper31 was able to score the new Rebels Series Stormtrooper, which looks to have a pretty nice paint job, but appears to be suffering from inconsistent plastic coloring.

For those of you planning to collect this line, how will a possible army of half white/half yellow-armored Stormtroopers affect your army-building approach?  Head to the forums for a closer look and to share your thoughts.
