Yakface/SWAN Celebration V Fan Party T-Shirt

After a bit of teasing, today we reveal the exclusive Fan T-Shirt that we will be giving to attendees of our joint Yakface/SWAN Celebration V Fan Party next month. There maybe a few final tweaks to the design/colors before they are printed but shouldn’t differ too greatly from the above. A huge thanks to illustrator Kevin Graham for lending his talents to the design. Click the image for a closer look!

Customizer Mega Spotlight

Just because I’ve been slacking on the Customizer Spotlights lately doesn’t mean that Yakface forum members haven’t been busy putting together all kinds of great new work!
Without further delay, leading things off with some great new customs is forumite Squirepec7, who has recently updated with a ton of new figures he has made here.

We’ve also got plenty of new creations for your viewing pleasure courtesty of stroebel83, including a Jedi version of Corran Horn.

For all you fans of the old Ewok television films , be sure to check out some awesome stuff by forum member darth_sidious as well!

Last but certainly not least, new forumite njocraig has shared several great new customs from the Darth Bane era. Be sure to check his latest work out here.

VC05 AT-AT Commander

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with the addition of the AT-AT Commander: the next basic figure entry in the 2010 Vintage Collection.

PROS: A nice alternative to the TSC General Veers without rendering him totally obsolete. Functional cross-draw holster is one of the better designs to come out of Hasbro. Removable armor detail is top notch as well as the added quilting texture on the inside of the helmet.

CONS: The uniform seems a little light in color at least when compared to the other Imperials of recent years. Goggles are a bit of a fight to stretch over the helmet, and once done then they are a little too loose fitting on the head under the helmet.

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

Darth Maul/Owen Lars Visionaries Comic Pack

The crew at JediInsider has posted a first look at the packaging for the upcoming SDCC exclusive Darth Maul/Owen Lars Visionaries Comic Pack. Designed to reflect the new “Shadow of the Darkside” style packaging for 2010, this set features a unique slipcase outerbox containing the traditionally packaged two pack. Look for this to be available at SDCC and later through HasbroToyShop and StarWarsShop.com for $14.99. Head on over for a closer look and then weigh in with your thoughts on this in our forums

VC01 Dengar

The Yakface Toyguide updates continue today with the addition of the Dengar: the next basic figure entry in the 2010 Vintage Collection.

PROS: And you thought the 2004 Saga version was nice? Although that six year old figure still has a certain charm about it, the 2010 version is a solid upgrade in terms of sculpt, articulation and accessories. This is, by all accounts, the definitive “Payback”.

CONS: None that I can discern – though it would be cool if you could mount the blaster rifle to his backpack.
