Jedi Temple Archives updates today with some additional details/rumors involving the future of The Black Series for late 2014. Look for more to be revealed as we lead up to SDCC.
There is another. We have received word that Hasbro will be unveiling an official Jedi-Con 2014 exclusive figure on July 28. And according to this image from JediBusiness, it looks like it may feature (6″?) C-3PO*. What do you think? Leave a comment here or in our forums.
Note: For clarity sake, IF this does include C-3PO, it is probably a simple variant on packaging or an included accessory. It is not meant to imply that 3PO is exclusive to Jedi-Con as we know that it will be available in future Black Series assortments.
From the moment it was revealed, fans have questioned “how will the Walgreens Exclusive Prototype Boba Fett be made available to both SDCC attendees and the general public?” Thanks to Facebook reader, Jason F., we may have an answer. Click on through for the details.
PROS: The most articulated Luke ever (albeit not the most attractive). Admittedly at first, I hated the mechanics and aesthetic of this figure with all of the exposed joint pins in the elbows, but once I started to physically pose and “play” with the figure, I found that the arms are really quite functional, allowing for a huge array of posing possibilities that aren’t possible with other figures – especially a two-handed lightsaber grip. Also features switch out hands that either aid in balance during handstand poses (which takes a bit of work to achieve) or allow him to reach out with the Force.
CONS: Deco again is an issue as it took me 3 samples just to find something suitable for photographing manly due to poor eye paint apps. Also, be sure to take notice of the lower legs of this figure should you decide to buy it. Two of my 3 samples each had a different assembly issue where either the left or right “shin” was facing backward in the packaging. Elbow joints are a little loose and I can see these becoming very floppy over time. Skin colored plastic is used for the hip joints and it is really evident in profile images. Knee joints are surprisingly limited in their range of motion. Finally, the belt/holster has no included hole to receive the peg from Luke’s lightsaber hilt – this oversight forces you to balance the hilt peg on a little sculpted tab.
Head to the toyguide for the full image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this figure is worth adding to your collection.
