Toyguide Update: 2016 PG Exclusive Maz Kanata Deluxe Mini Bust

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today as we take a look at the  2016 Premier Guild Exclusive Maz Kanata Deluxe Mini Bust from Gentle Giant.

PROS: An amazing recreation and likeness to Maz Kanata’s design from The Force Awakens. The sculpting overall is exquisite with many different textures and fabrics capturing in the polystone medium. The colors are vibrant  – from her orangish skin to her clothing and jewelry – as well as having a nice wash to bring out the fine wrinkles and folds. The inclusion of the swappable arms allows for two display options which is nice to have with some of these static pieces.

CONS:  Must be a PG Member to purchase ($120) which will probably drive the after market price higher in the future.  Could benefit from some tightening in the paint apps, especially on the hand gripping the lightsaber.

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

Toyguide Update: BB-8 (Holiday Edition) Mini Bust (2016 PGM Exclusive)

holiday_bb8_preview

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today as we take a look at the  2016 Premier Guild Exclusive BB-8 (Holiday Edition) Mini Bust from Gentle Giant.

PROS: Excellent sculpting and deco, and the lights are a perfectly festive touch. LED lights are bright and the button batteries are included (preinstalled). 3 lighting modes give the collector options, although I suspect most will choose the solid (non-flashing) setting.

CONS:  Must be a PG Member to purchase ($120) which will probably drive the after market price higher in the future.  Fragile antennae could easily break if not handled properly.

Head to the toyguide for the full image gallery (and our YouTube page for a video) to judge for yourself whether this bust is worth adding to your collection.
