Toyguide Update: VC26 Rebel Commando

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with the addition of the Rebel Commando from the 2011 Vintage Collection’s Return of the Jedi wave (Wave 3).

PROS: This latest attempt at an Endor Rebel Solider (aka Rebel Commando) shines above all others. Well accessorized and articulated making it another “must-have” figure from the Vintage line. Easily removable accessories make customizing and variant creation possible with minimal effort – you’ll want/need more than one of these guys for your Endor Strike Team.

CONS: Odd forward-tilting angle of the neck post sculpt force the figure to look in a downward direction.

Head to the toyguide for the full image gallery and 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.

TVC Wave 7 Shipping and “Revenge” Wave Delayed ’til Oct

Our pal Adam Pawlus over at Galactic Hunter and Entertainment Earth has posted updated shipping info regarding The Vintage Collection’s Wave 7 and the now delayed wave 8. TVC Wave 7 (the RFT, Logray, Fordo etc. wave) is now shipping from most online retailers, but it looks as if wave 8 and its revision case, which both include the Revenge of the Jedi recard figures, has been pushed back until October. Question is, what does that mean for the SDCC exclusive Revenge of the Jedi Mega Set?
