To those that ordered the ECCC/F.Y.E. Exclusive POP! Muftak yesterday, check your inboxes as cancellation notifications are being sent out. Word is that they will still be hitting brick and mortar stores but that is little consolation to those that don’t have an F.Y.E. store in close proximity.

Toyguide Update: 2016 PG Exclusive Maz Kanata Deluxe Mini Bust

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today as we take a look at the  2016 Premier Guild Exclusive Maz Kanata Deluxe Mini Bust from Gentle Giant.

PROS: An amazing recreation and likeness to Maz Kanata’s design from The Force Awakens. The sculpting overall is exquisite with many different textures and fabrics capturing in the polystone medium. The colors are vibrant  – from her orangish skin to her clothing and jewelry – as well as having a nice wash to bring out the fine wrinkles and folds. The inclusion of the swappable arms allows for two display options which is nice to have with some of these static pieces.

CONS:  Must be a PG Member to purchase ($120) which will probably drive the after market price higher in the future.  Could benefit from some tightening in the paint apps, especially on the hand gripping the lightsaber.

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

Customizer Spotlight: Peakob1

Customizer Peakob1 shows off his latest custom figures, as part of his vision of what a 40th Anniversary line should look like from Hasbro.   Head on over to the forums to check it all out!

Personal Note:  In my humble opinion, these kit bashed repaints honoring the original trilogy blow Hasbro’s 40th Anniversary line out of the water.  Imagine figures like these, on vintage-esque cards… ’nuff said.

New Elite Series Figures Coming Soon

Members of the Elite Series Collectors group on Facebook are reporting* the discovery for 3 “new” Elite Series figures coming soon to Disney Stores in the UK (and the US). Soon, you be able to add Riot Gear Stormtrooper, Finn with Lightsaber and Squad Leader Stormtrooper to your collection. Also of interest is a slight packaging refresh for the line which looks to universalize the box to cut down the cost of printing, requiring only a sticker to differentiate each character.

Thanks to Corey for First Order Transmissions for the heads-up.
