Toyguide Update: 3.75″ Force Link Luke Skywalker (Jedi Master)

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with our first addition to The Last Jedi line look of products with the Luke Skywalker (Jedi Master) figure.*

PROS:  Sometimes a figure comes along and it is exactly what it needs to be: a perfect representation of the character as first revealed from an iconic scene in a film. No bells and whistles (aside from Force Link), soft goods or superfluous articulation required. After nearly two years, this iteration of Luke Skywalker is just that. This figure, for me, succeeds where the the 3.75″ and 6″ Black Series figures fail due to the utilization of the plastic cloak. The stoic expression is captured well in this scale and the overall sculpt of the body is nicely detailed and textured to convey fabric where implied.

CONS: The Force Link phrases don’t sound much like Mark Hamill (at least in this version of the figure) and sound a tad cartoonish and generic.

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

The Last Jedi Line Already Has Packaging Variants

There are already two TLJ figures that feature packaging variants in the 3.75″ line. The first one, found over the weekend, switches the placement of the Porg and bowcaster accessories included with Chewbacca. The second is for General Hux which switches the position of the mouse droid (and turns it 90 degrees) and blaster. I know this info super serves a very small segment of collectors but as someone that likes to document these things, I thought I’d share it all the same.

There is Another… Playset… sort of

As we speculated a couple weeks ago, there is a version of the BB-8 2-in-1 Mega Playset that includes the Force Link bracelet. We’ve seen the version without the bracelet leaked via Amazon.es but now you can see the second version in alternate packaging has leaked out and is on-shelf at Target via an Instagram post from ToyThugShow (swipe left on the Instagram image to see it.)

Thanks to @Jord3217 on Twitter for the heads-up.
