bobafett

Looks like Hot Toys isn’t resting one bit with their newly acquired sixth scale license as blurry images of a new Boba Fett (Return of the Jedi) figure has hit over at the SideshowCollectors forums. This figure looks to have a ton of accessories and display options including a cool severed blaster rifle and skiff base. Click the image above for a closer look and keep your sights locked on as we wait for official confirmation.

UPDATE: Based on the blurry, circular logo and the bottom left of the image, this looks to be a 1/4 scale figure

Toyguide Update: Luke Skywalker (SL10)

SL10_lukeskywalker_preview

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume with the next entry in the Star Wars Rebels/Saga Legends 3-3/4″ line. Next, we take a look at Luke Skywalker (SL10).

PROS: This was one of the figures I missed in early 2014 (due to “last wave syndrome” of the previous line look in the US). Thankfully, Hasbro recognized the problem and reissued it for the first wave of Rebels/Saga Legends assortment. The figure itself is quite possibly the best 5 POA Luke figure ever done in terms of capturing the classic Kenner aesthetic while using modern sculpting techniques. Like most offerings in the Saga Legends line, there are some issues with paint apps but this figure (at least my sample) seems to have faired pretty well. They really seemed to have nailed the specific “Jedi” details of his outfit as well – namely the chest flap and the cool little pouch on his belt.

CONS: As we mentioned, the paint apps for this figure can vary from figure to figure so finding one with decent eye/eye brow deco may be the hardest part about collecting the figure. Otherwise there really isn’t much to complain about unless you just don’t like “cheaper” toys aimed a younger generation.

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

You can also weigh in with your impressions on the figures we add to our toyguide on facebook and in our forums.
