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.
