Episode 384: Bishoujo and Jocasta Nu


With few new Hasbro Star Wars toys showing up in stores, Star Wars collectors and podcast hosts Marjorie and Arnie must look online to build their collection.  On this week’s podcast, they review two new mail-order additions to their collection!  First, they review the Brian’s Toys exclusive Jocasta Nu action figure from Hasbro.  Then they look at the first statue in Kotobukiya’s new Star Wars Bishoujo line–Jaina Solo.

Star Wars Action News segment host Nathan P. Butler has also kept busy collecting the variant covers for Dark Horse’s new Star Wars #1 comic book.  How many covers are there and how far will Nathan go to get them all?  Listen to this week’s podcast to find out!

With a UK collecting report by Steve “The Gingerprince” and Johnathan giving tips on collecting the Yoda carded Clone Wars and Movie Heroes figures, it’s all on this week’s Star Wars Action News podcast!

Toyguide Update: Jocasta Nu

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with the addition of Jocasta Nu from the Vintage Collection.

PROS: As one of the perennial recipients of votes in fans’ choice polls for years, Hasbro has treated collectors to a very nice figure as the design is solid and the deco is equally well done. Jocasta is presented in an attractive display box and includes a ton of accessories, one of the coolest being the Dooku “Lost Twenty” bust with hidden holocron.

CONS: For me? None. Others on the other hand seem to have a gripe with the price and/or the way this figure is distributed, but in the end you must, as they say “vote with your dollar” and let those who’ve wanted this figure enjoy it.

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.
