The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with the addition of Darth Vader from the Vintage Collection.
Making good on their promise for a running change for Anakin Skywalker from Revenge of the Sith, Hasbro doesn’t stop there as they also revise the card back to include a sneak preview of wave 5! This packaging variant is currently shipping with the Return of the Jedi wave of figures. Note: there is no change to the figure.
Head to the toyguide for the full image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this variation 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.
For each Yakfinities theme, we have seen crafty veterans and newcomers to this aspect of the hobby take part in the creative process of customizing. We invite all our readers to continue to get involved and submit your own entries in the latest Customizing Challenge after the jump!

Some lucky collectors have had a nice early Thanksgiving treat at their doorsteps this week – the new Comic Pack figures! This final wave represents some of Hasbro’s finest work in this line, making it even more of a shame that this line wasn’t handled better.
Check out some loose images of the figures from this wave after the jump!
Note – Unfortunately many collectors are reporting that their orders have been moved back to December.
