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.

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

The Enloe Trials: Chapter 2 Approaching

Although it may appear that I’ve been just sitting around like Freelo pictured above, I’ve actually been working on a lot of behind the scenes prep work for the next installment in The Enloe Trials photonovel series. 

Click on the image above for a recap of Chapter 1, and stay tuned for some previews to the next installment as the adventures continue into the OT era!

Walmart Black Friday 8-Pack

Walmart’s Black Friday Ad has dropped and it looks like they are going to have an exclusive 8-pack of Saga Legends* figures for $25.00. This promo is available in-store only and after 8pm on Thanksgiving Day.

*As of yet there is no word if the 8 figures are this same in each set or just a cobbled together assortment of overstock. But it’s a sure bet there is nothing worth getting here unless you are looking for troop builders.

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!).
