BAB_chewie

Sideshow 1:6 R5-D4 Preorder

SSC_R5

Sideshow is now taking preorders for their 1:6 Scale R5-D4 figure.

He may be worn and faulty, but who could resist this loveable little astro droid? Slightly larger than his more famous successor R2-D2, Sideshow’s R5-D4 Sixth Scale Figure measures roughly 8.6 inches tall from antenna to treads. Appearing just as Uncle Owen purchased him from the Jawas on Tatooine, every detail of the R5 unit is faithfully replicated, from his desert-worn deco to advanced articulation. Nicknamed for his bright crimson accents, Red’s distinctive trapezoid-shaped head features authentic holographic details, and can swivel nearly 360 degrees, while a magnetic restraining bolt grants access to a variety of compartments and hinged panels. Notoriously plagued with malfunctions, he also suffers a pop-up “bad motivator,” a feature Star Wars fans are sure to enjoy. Destined to play a key role in a moment that sets the events of the original Star Wars trilogy in motion, R5-D4 is a must-have addition for any Star Wars collection!

Toyguide Update: 2015 Convention Exclusive General McQuarrie Mini Bust

TG_preview_gen_mcquarrieMB

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today as we take a look at the 2015 Convention Exclusive General McQuarrie Mini Bust from Gentle Giant.

PROS: Anything that results in more tributes to the iconic Ralph McQuarrie is okay by me, but it does come at at price. The overall sculpt and paint are good with crisp details especially on the jacket and (non-removable) cap. For fans of Ralph McQuarrie and the Original Trilogy, this should be a welcome addition to your mini bust display.

CONS: The prices for Gentle Giant bust have steadily crept up over the last few years and this one falls victim to that trend as well. It is an exclusive, and it is McQuarrie, but $120.00 is pretty steep for this non-deluxe bust.

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

Customizer Mega Spotlight

043015spot

Tonight we highlight some more of the great custom works of several of our forum members!

First up, Evilivo continues to inspire with a great repaint of the recent Mission Series Yoda.  What he’s done here really brings this figure to life.

Next, my kind of scum shows off another batch of his custom figures, including one using several non-Star Wars parts to create a spectacular alien.  I don’t know what the heck this thing is, but it’s awesome!

We’ve also got some really cool new droids that you’ll want to see by Jawaking, who has been on one heck of a role lately with his customs.

Last but not least, forum newcomer AjuntaPall has posted a ton of custom figures for your viewing pleasure – check out his latest updates here.
