The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with the addition of Wooof from the Vintage Collection’s Return of the Jedi wave.
PROS: Marking one of the first truly new character offerings in a long time, Wooof gets his own figure since 1983 (collectors remember him then as “Klaatu”). Wooof features all the articulation one would expect and has an all-new sculpt for the body. (Head is a revised Giran sculpt). Well accessorized too with Vibro Ax (also from Giran), Blaster, removable helmet and bandolier.
CONS: Helmet is a little loose on the head and the skin tone is akin to a lime, but otherwise a totally solid figure worth repeat purchases.
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.
If you still have some Star Wars Christmas shopping to do, Toys”R”us is having a new promotion that appears to only be available tomorrow (Sunday) – a free Kul Teska or Nikto Guard with any Star Wars purchase of $50.00 or more. Thanks to Yakface reader Ravage for the heads up.
A first look at some upcoming figures for 2011 has been revealed in the latest ToyFare Magazine, and Bantha5 at Rebelscum.com has shared some pics.

Yakface reader “T-Bone” sends us a quick photo of an interesting error he found at his local Wal-mart. What you see above is an “UGH” Foil card variant that missed out on the foil stamping process. Click the photo above for a closer look.
Very cool find T-Bone!
