Yakfinities Continues


The current Yakfinities Customizing Challenge runs through the end of September, and some fantastic entries have been rolling in.

Reminder:  All entries should be new custom dioramas made during this Yakfinities window (July-September).  Older dioramas, if shared, should be clarified as older as they are not eligible for a prize in the roundup report.

Yakfinities #61 has Begun

So in that light, our latest Yakfinities Customizing  Challenge theme is custom playsets/dioramas/environments!  This Yakfinities runs through the end of September, so there’s plenty of time to create and submit an entry.

Episode #478: House of Cards


Now with reviews of Walmart’s exclusive Wave 3 Black Series figures!

Highly detailed, highly articulated Star Wars 3.75-inch figures are the mainstay of many fans’ collections. The news that The Force Awakens would only see a handful of these Black Series figures, and that they would be Walmart exclusives, made fans worry if these new toys would be obtainable. The third wave, with versions of Han Solo, General Leia, and Captain Phasma from The Force Awakens, has been elusive and fetched north of $40 per figure on eBay.  But now, finally, the dam has broken and these figures are showing up coast to coast–including in the Star Wars Action News studio! On this week’s show hear a review of these latest figures and see if they’re worth more toy runs!
Yet while the Black Series 3.75-inch figures have been elusive, the main line of figures, with five points of articulation, are available at every store. Fans were divided on these detailed, but hard-to-pose figures. Now, enter Kozy–a figure customizer who has created cardbacks that elevate these figures from average to epic!  He joins the Star Wars Action News hosts to talk about these cards and his inspiration for making them.
With a look at upcoming exclusives for San Diego Comic-Con International and Celebration Europe, new online sales, and much more, it’s all in this Wampa-sized episode of Star Wars Action News!
