VC45 Clone Trooper (Phase I)

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with the addition of Clone Trooper (Phase I) from the Vintage Collection’s Wave 6.
PROS: Hasbro goes back to the drawing board and creates a totally new and more accurate clone trooper. Loaded with articulation including ball-jointed wrists and hips. The facial expression on the new head sculpt is superb as is the paint treatment for the new weapon molds.

CONS: Sticks out like a sore thumb when compared to previous generations of clone troopers, but don’t let that stop you from buying one (or more).

VC44 Luke Skywalker (Dagobah Landing)

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with the addition of Luke Skywalker (Dagobah Landing)from the Vintage Collection’s wave 6.

PROS: A very nice rework of last year’s Snowspeeder Luke. The head sculpt is one of the best ever in terms of Mark Hamill’s likeness in TESB. The darker fightsuit helps to convey the “wet look” even without additional weathering deco. The incorporation of the holster (with leg strap) is really well executed.

CONS: Retooled gloveless forearms make the arms seem a bit long. Should be a little more dirty (especially the helmet) considering he just crashed into a slimy mud hole.

Clone Wars Aqua Droid Loose Images

Reports are coming in that the latest wave of Clone Wars figures are hitting at Wal-Mart, and today these were found in St. Louis. For a closer look at the Aqua Droid, click here.

Note – these were not found in the regular Star Wars section, but in display shippers in a different part of the toy department. Hopefully Hasbro has a similar shipper setup coming soon for The Vintage Collection, because right now it seems like we’re seeing the same trend from the past couple years playing out with retailers constantly getting a lot more of the Clone Wars and Legends figures to the pegs than the collector-oriented line.

VC33 Padmé Amidala (Peasant Disguise)

The Yakface Toyguide updates continue today with the addition of Padmé Amidala (Peasant Disguise) from the Vintage Collection’s Attack of the Clones wave.

PROS: Another Amidala outfit is crossed off the want-list! Excellent sculpt and ornate paint apps – especially on the main body. The interchangeable headdresses are a nice touch as is the removable soft goods. Inclusion of the blaster, though superfluous, is a nice bonus too.

CONS: Color of the outfit looks a bit off as this looks more “butterscotch” than “mustard” – hardly worth passing over for this assessment though.

VC32: Anakin Skywalker (Peasant Disguise)

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with the addition of Anakin Skywalker (Peasant Disguise) from the Vintage Collection’s Attack of the Clones wave.

PROS: Throw your 2002 version in the dumpster, ’cause this one is definitely the best (and last) version you’ll ever need. Great fabric and tailoring for the poncho.

CONS: Hair color seems to be a bit dark – a light “highlight” wash would remedy that though.

VC31 Obi-Wan Kenobi

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with the addition of Obi-Wan Kenobi from the Vintage Collection’s Attack of the Clones wave.

PROS: Hasbro took the awesome 2009/2010 Legacy Collection sculpt and improved the deco, gave him a Jedi robe and corrected the paint deco to the lightsaber hilt.

CONS: Still, no extra lightsaber hilt to attach to his belt.

VC30 Zam Wesell

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with the addition of Zam Wesell from the Vintage Collection’s Attack of the Clones wave.

PROS: An excellent revision to the previous figure sculpts. Loaded with articulation and ornate details in the costume, Interchangeable head is a nice touch.

CONS: The Clawdite head sculpt doesn’t look much like the on-screen version – the 2002 figure seemed to capture the likeness better. Haircolor is wrong for the human head- not a deal breaker though as we don’t see her without her helmet in the film. Not having a detachable arm is a step backwards.
