Also this week, Steve, the Gingerprince, reports in from London’s Collectormania event and gives you a chance to win a picture hand-signed by everyone’s favorite Gungan, and Berent has an interview with Bwana Spoons and his Spoonful of Star Wars action figure paintings from DesignerCon in Pasadena!

VC24 Wooof

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.
