Toyguide Update: VC55 Logray

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with the addition of the Logray (Ewok Medicine Man) from the 2011 Vintage Collection’s (Wave 7).

PROS: Hasbro knocks another Ewok sculpt revision out of the park with this new take on Logray. The accessories are great in terms of sculpt and deco. Also, designers went that extra mile and incorporated ball-joint elbow – a first for an Ewok – making this the most highly articulated Ewok yet.

CONS: Fur seems a tad dark when compared to movie still or other reference images, but hardly a reason the pass on this figure, if and when you can find it.

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

Vintage Wave 7 – In Stock

Hasbrotoyshop.com has the latest wave of Vintage figures in stock!  Keep in mind these are only available on their site by the case, but with how depressing the retail distribution has been since Christmas, you might not want to pass up this opportunity. 

Now only if Hasbro had packed TWO of each new figure in a case… but regardless, thanks to forumites AaylaSecurasMan and Grimace for the heads up!

“Yak”Facebook Preview: VC55 Logray

Thanks to one of my local MN collector pals, I was able to secure a few of the latest Vintage Collection figures from Wave 7. In today’s “Yak”Facebook Preview, we take a look at Logray (Ewok Medicine Man). This all new version features the most articulation yet for an Ewok, sporting not only ball-jointed hips and ankles, but elbows as well! Let’s hope this trend continues with future furball releases. For more images, head to our facebook page and be sure to keep an eye out for more Wave 7 editions over the next few days as well as complete Toyguide Updates for each figure.

Toyguide Update: VC26 Rebel Commando

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with the addition of the Rebel Commando from the 2011 Vintage Collection’s Return of the Jedi wave (Wave 3).

PROS: This latest attempt at an Endor Rebel Solider (aka Rebel Commando) shines above all others. Well accessorized and articulated making it another “must-have” figure from the Vintage line. Easily removable accessories make customizing and variant creation possible with minimal effort – you’ll want/need more than one of these guys for your Endor Strike Team.

CONS: Odd forward-tilting angle of the neck post sculpt force the figure to look in a downward direction.

TVC Wave 7 Shipping and “Revenge” Wave Delayed ’til Oct

Our pal Adam Pawlus over at Galactic Hunter and Entertainment Earth has posted updated shipping info regarding The Vintage Collection’s Wave 7 and the now delayed wave 8. TVC Wave 7 (the RFT, Logray, Fordo etc. wave) is now shipping from most online retailers, but it looks as if wave 8 and its revision case, which both include the Revenge of the Jedi recard figures, has been pushed back until October. Question is, what does that mean for the SDCC exclusive Revenge of the Jedi Mega Set?
