Talking Boba Fett Packaging Errors

Patrick B. shares with us an image via Facebook regarding the packaging for the Disney Store Exclusive Talking Boba Fett. As you can see, the product reference image on the back of the box is missing some key elements of the figure. Click the image above for a closer look.

Received my Disney Talking Boba Fett. Well-packed and in perfect condition. Great figure at 13.5″. Attached is a shot of the box back. I found it interesting that it’s the mock-up figure missing key items (I marked them).

Episode 431: Exclusive Showdown

Star-Wars-Action-News-Enhanced-Podcast-Feed2-300x225

Marjorie and Arnie give a hands-on review of Hasbro’s San Diego Comic-Con International exclusives, Johnathan runs down the Toys R Us AT-ST set, and Steve the Gingerprince reports in from the London Film & Comic Con!

The irony of San Diego Comic-Con is that while everyone rushes to buy the exclusives, there’s no time at the con to really look at them! Now Marjorie and Arnie are back home and have unpacked their SDCC shipment, and are ready to tell you if Hasbro’s 6-Inch Jabba the Hut exclusive, or the SDCC/Toys R Us exclusive Cantina Showdown set, was worth the trouble.

Also on this week’s show Steve the Gingerprince reports in from the London Film and Comic Con. With a not-too-surprising number of Star Wars guests (given where Episode VII is filming) and tons of toys, listen in to find out about that European event.

With Johnathan telling us what’s hitting stores, a look at the Star Wars Celebration pin set, and more, it’s all in this episode of Star Wars Action News!

Toyguide Update: SDCC Exclusive Luke Skywalker (McQuarrie Concept) Mini Bust

sdcc_McLuke_bust_preview

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today as we take a look at the SDCC Exclusive Luke Skywalker (McQuarrie Concept) Mini Bust from Gentle Giant.

PROS:  It’s hard to believe that it has been four years since the release of the Darth Vader (McQuarrie Concept) Mini Bust, but alas, this year’s offering is the perfect complement to it. The interpretive design, much like the Kotobukiya and Hasbro releases before it, captures Ralph McQuarrie’s original style and vision for the hero. The sculpt and paint apps are impressive leaving little room for improvement. Essentially, this is a must-have for any McQuarrie aficionado or mini bust collector.

CONS: None. It’s pretty fantastic.

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