It may seem like there’s fewer items worth buying in the 3.75″ market these days – and if you feel this way, head on over to Holeinthegroundpro.com for a refreshing focus on items in this scale for scene and diorama building (collector language for playsets).
All kinds of fantastic items are available… the prices are fair, the quality is the best I’ve seen, and orders are received in a timely fashion. For more details, check them out here and share your thoughts in our forums.
Yakface Forum member darthcrassus has shared a great review of a couple of The Force Awakens vehicle models by Revell. Check them out by clicking here!
Got some Star Wars items you’ve reviewed and want to share? Do so in our forums, and you might see it show up on our front page!
Personal Note: These Revell items look a lot better than I had expected, and it appears that a lot more attention to detail went into these than what we’ve been seeing from Hasbro in quite some time, sadly.
The latest Yakfinities Customizing Challenge is well underway, with some great entries so far. To get into the mix, simply click here!
Forum member kevin1126 has shared some amazing photos of his collection in our forums for your viewing pleasure. Some of you will probably recognize the works of diorama builder Boutross77 here and diorama accessories that Raylen has provided.
On any note, feast your eyes on the amazing gallery he’s shared in our forums after the jump!
Most of us want to see the 3.75″ SA figure line continue, right? But does it really have to cost this much? Especially when nearly everything else of comparable size/articulation costs consumers way less?
Is this really Hasbro’s only option to keep a decent articulated line going? Or instead of full SA figures, why can’t they have the baseline articulation be around 10 points, and have a unified line with a MSRP around $8.99 (such as similar quality to THIS)?
Is a beyond 5POA line that’s more affordable too much to ask for? Share your thoughts in the forums.
Hasbro may not care so much about collector support these days, but that doesn’t mean you have to be left out in the cold… as once again, Holeinthegroundpro comes to the rescue with another great new way to display your 3.75″ scale figures!
Check out some more details in our forums, and be sure to head on over to their site to secure your own diorama wall kit by clicking here.
If you pre-ordered a “Desert Den” playset from Twelfth Parsec, start keeping an eye on your email for a shipping notice as these have begun to arrive on the doorsteps of collectors.
Personal Note: Independent groups who are actually fans themselves are starting to take advantage of Hasbro’s negligence on the playset front, and hopefully we will see bigger and better things like this in the future.
On any note, head to the forums for a closer look.
Surely Hasbro already has something like this coming, but in case you were wondering, in the 6″ scale, Finn’s head easily swaps with the First Order Stormtrooper.
Thanks to forum member darthcrassus for sharing this – head on over to the forums for a closer look.
As you are likely aware, Target stores are marking down basically everything in their older Star Wars inventory prior to the Force Friday launch September 4.
Some stuff is down 50% now, including the 6″ scale deluxes at some stores for just $12.48 per forum member TVC15’s report (recall Target lowered the everyday price on these a while back once it became apparent that there wasn’t enough demand to move them at full retail of $39.99).
Personal Note: If you’ve been holding out on these, the 6″ deluxes are pretty good, so passing on this price could lead to regret down the road...

An up close and personal review of the Toys”R”us/SDCC Jabba the Hutt has been posted for your viewing pleasure at Mightyjabba.com
Be forewarned, for those of us that had been excited by this new slug for our 3.75″ collections may not be so pleased considering some of the news in the review (including the paint apps)…
A new Yakfinities Customizing Challenge has just begun – the Pegwarmer Roundup!
Let’s face it, there’s figures that Hasbro makes just too many of, or the figure just falls short of expectations. Sometimes, this is where customizers come in and save the day by making a purchase nobody else will… for a custom!
Got some pegwarmers in your area that a retailer can’t seem to give away? Help these unwanted toys find a home (only to be chopped up repainted) by joining in the Pegwarmer Roundup!
So far, 2015 hasn’t exactly been a banner year for Hasbro’s product brand, but their new 6″ scale Wampa is one of the greatest items I’ve ever seen them produce.
Obviously they have a huge opportunity with the Fall lineup, but given how awesome this new Wampa is, I’m not expecting to see much product this year that tops it.
Head on over to the forums for a closer look, including a comparison of this mold next to the 3.75″ scale Wampa, which is looking very outdated now.
