Check out this awesome how-to-video from Cosplay Chris where he takes a basic 3.75″ First Order TIE Fighter and create his own crash scene diorama. It’s pretty amazing.
PROS: A marked improvement over the “Home Entertainment” set released for The Force Awakens, this set features 3 new figures with excellent sculpting and paint. Edrio and Saw are brand new for this set and are the most detailed of the 4 figures. Saw Gerrera is the highlight though featuring the most complex sculpt and a great likeness to Forest Whitaker. There are no superfluous pack-in weapons to clutter the set.
CONS: The benefits far outweigh the negatives for this set as repacking Jyn seems like an overcompensation to correct the “Where’s Rey” issues from 2015. It’s also unfortunate that this is the only to get Saw Gerrera and Edrio Two Tubes, but obviously better than not getting them at all.
Head to the toyguide for our detailed image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this set is worth adding to your collection.

Customizer Peakob1 shows off his latest custom figures, as part of his vision of what a 40th Anniversary line should look like from Hasbro. Head on over to the forums to check it all out!
Personal Note: In my humble opinion, these kit bashed repaints honoring the original trilogy blow Hasbro’s 40th Anniversary line out of the water. Imagine figures like these, on vintage-esque cards… ’nuff said.

DorksideToys is now taking preorders for wave 1 of the 6″ 40th Anniversary Figures. Wave 1 consists of Luke, R2-D2, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Princess Leia and Han Solo.
There has been a bit of confusion surrounding the retail partner for the 6″ 40AC R5-D4 figure. Original claims out of Toy Fair stated that it would be exclusive to Entertainment Earth, but the images from Hasbro indicated that GameStop would be offering the figure. We’ve received information that Entertainment Earth IS NOT carrying it and it will in fact be sold through GameStop/ThinkGeek.
