Customizer Spotlight: Raylen

Customizer Raylen has gone to great lengths to customize an AT-TE that would definitely give Hasbro a run for their money if they ever decided to update their Clone Wars version of this awesome vehicle.

New Clone Wars Droidfactory Astromechs Coming Soon?

clonewars_astromechsToday while exploring the seedy underbelly of the internet, I came across three as-of-yet to be announced astromech figures that look to be part of a Clone Wars themed Droidfactory set for Disney Parks (note the missing wires on the feet). It is unclear if these will be offered together or individually, or if there is possibly a fourth droid to join them. Click on through for a closer look at R5-S9, R5-P8 and R5-U8/R5-013.

Again, these aren’t Hasbro products.

Black Series Captain Rex Quick Fix

TBS_rex_customsm

There has been a lot of commentary out there about the helmet size of the new Captain Rex (#09) figure from The Black Series being too small. There is a very easy “fix” that most people can do if you have some older Clone Wars Rex figures laying about. Click on through for a quick fix on bringing that shrunken head version back to the front lines of your collection.

Customizer Spotlight: Peakob1

Tonight we take a look at one of the coolest customizing projects ever posted in our forums – The Box Project – by forum member Peakob1.  This Clone Wars themed project entails customs of 12 of the best bounty hunters in the galaxy.  Check it out after the jump!

Personal Note:  It’s a shame that Hasbro let the Clone Wars line die with such a whimper, starting in 2012 they had pretty much abandoned the line and their last efforts included completely unnecessary resculpts of characters like Obi Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker.  This project just goes to show how much potential that line had.

Toyguide Update: Obi-Wan Kenobi (SL11)

SL11_OWK_preview

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume with the next entry in the Star Wars Rebels/Saga Legends 3-3/4″ line. Next, we take a look at Obi-Wan Kenobi (SL11).

PROS: Again, this was one of the figures I missed in early 2014 due to the last wave of the previous line look not being released in the US. Here Hasbro offers another Obi-Wan, this time in his armor as seen from the early seasons of The Clone Wars. A solid looking figure overall with a crisp sculpt. Again, I’m glad Hasbro found a way to get this back out to collectors, but I think it’s high time we received an old Ben Kenobi in the 5POA line to round out the A New Hope character line up.

CONS: Where this figure falls short is the paint. This sample suffers from paint apps that are very sloppily applied, especially the legs. My guess is that this is the last “new” Obi-Wan figure, in this particular outfit, that we’ll ever receive and that’s a bit sad.

Head to the toyguide for the full image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this figure is worth adding to your collection.
