Customizing Spotlight: 6″ Prototype Boba Fett

PFett_preview

If you have been following along with our recent episodes of The Realm Recap, you’ll be familiar with the fact that I recently acquired a gorgeous custom 6’ Prototype Boba Fett from talented customizer Chris Veach. As I alluded to in the show, I thought how cool would it be to have a custom box to go along with it. So, after some quick prototyping (pun intended) I came up with a nice design to complement Chris’s work. Click on through for a complete gallery of images.

Toyguide Update: TBS #15 Merumeru

TBS15_preview

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume with our next entry in the The Black Series 3-3/4″ line. Today, we take a look at the Wookiee warrior, Merumeru (#15).

PROS: Merumeru is a very well done figure despite a few flaws in articulation. The sculpt captures the essence of the character and is enhanced by a quality deco which gives high- and lowlights to the fur. This figure also has some heft to it, but surprisingly, it’s not one of the largest Wookiee figures we’ve been offered over the years. Merumeru boasts a fair amount of accessories – all of which are new – including a great blaster and a two-piece battle staff with a headpiece that has some great detail/decoration which augments its phallic shape.

CONS: Hasbro (in what was surely a cost-saving measure) eliminated the waist joint – the result is a figure that leaves you wanting. The sculpted dreadlocks prohibit any real range of motion for the head.

Head to the toyguide for the full image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this piece 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.
