Star-Wars-Action-News-Enhanced-Podcast-Feed2-300x225

Kotobukiya had one of the most stunning booth displays at Star Wars Celebration 2015.  Their Art-FX+ display of dozens of Stormtroopers standing at the ready, with Royal Guards and Vader at the fore, was truly a spectacular sight to behold.  They also continued to grow this line of tenth-scale statues with their celebration exclusive K-3PO and R3-A2 droid pack.  Marjorie and Arnie review those new droids, as well as the Royal Guard Art-FX+ two-pack, in this episode of Star Wars Action News!

Also in this episode, a rundown of the recently announced SDCC exclusives, more news on finding the “cancelled” wave of Droid Factory figures, A New Hope for Hot Toys, and more — it’s all in this brand new Star Wars Action News show!

On this week’s show Flyguy and I discuss the latest collecting news including not one but two waves of TBS 6” figures hitting retail, new details on the TRU/SDCC exclusive Jabba’s Rancor set and a new source in the US for those “cancelled” Legacy Collection figures. New LEGO news leaked this week regarding several sets tied to The Force Awakens and it looks like we’ll be getting gray bricks as far as the eye can see. Disney announced additional info for the next Disney Infinity expansion which focuses heavily on the Original Trilogy and its characters. All of this plus comic news, Star Wars Weekends merchandise, a “leaked” product hitting Mexico from The Force Awakens and more on Episode #64 of The Realm Recap.

Legacy Collection Found at Discount Store

Derek W. sends word that those “cancelled” Legacy Collection figures have turned up at retail outside of Go! Calendars. He writes:

Build A Droid wave found in Maine. Just bought the 9 figures left at a small independent discount store called Ed’s Grove here in Waterboro Maine. Quite a steal at only 6.99 each! Sadly the Biker Scout, Tie Pilot and 212th Clone were already gone. But how could I pass up a piece of Hasbro History?

Thanks for the report Derek!

Episode 451: Hot Toys Stormtroopers – Shiny and New

Star-Wars-Action-News-Enhanced-Podcast-Feed2

Hot Toys’ line of Movie Masterpiece 12-inch scale figures continues to grow. Luke and Leia have been teased, and recently they shipped their first non-exclusive figure: The Stormtrooper, sold individually and in a two-pack. Andrew has them in hand and is here with an in-depth review.

Also in this week’s show is a discussion of the “cancelled” wave of Droid Factory figures that inexplicably appeared for sale at Go! Calendar stores across the country. Johnathan has them in hand and gives his thoughts, as well as a report of what he’s finding in stores.

With Brock reviewing Paul S Kemp’s new novel Lords of the Sith, Steve the Gingerprince giving a report from Star Wars Fan Fun Days, and Arnie and Marjorie recording live at Wizard World St. Louis, it’s all in this week’s Star Wars Action News podcast!

Toyguide Update: 2013 Legacy Collection Droid Factory Assortment

TG_LC_DF_2013_preview

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with a special update detailing the recently surfaced 2013 Legacy Collection Droid Factory Assortment.

PROS: Previously thought to be cancelled, this line look was eventually reconfigured to form many of the figures in the first waves of The Black Series as well as the 2013 Amazon Exclusive set. Many collectors preferred this line look so it is nice to get closure on that line that was very short lived. There is absolutely nothing new here so it is very skippable for the general opener/collector.

CONS: At this time, it is unknown how plentiful these cases of figures are so the price for each figure is pretty ridiculous. If you are a packaging/carded completist, this run of figures may ultimately be a hole in your collection.

Head to the toyguide for the full image gallery and to judge for yourself whether these figures are worth adding to your collection.

Cancelled Legacy Collection Assortment Available Online

More Cancelled Legacy Collection Figures Found

LF_DF_GO_SM

Following up on Rebelscum’s report about the previously cancelled Legacy Collection Droid Factory assortment from 2013, I hit up my local Go! Calendars | Games | Toys store and found a few of those figures as well. Looks like I just need the Clone Trooper Sergeant and Luminara Unduli to finish off the assortment that caps off the Amazon Exclusive set nicely.

Toyguide Update: FA-4 (Droid Factory)

fa4_preview

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume with a series of entries covering the Amazon Exclusive Droid Factory Set of Legacy Collection figures. We continue with the addition of FA-4.

PROS: Making good on their intentions, Hasbro found a way to get this figure into collector’s hands. The sculpt is pretty solid as it doesn’t go overboard with unnecessary “super articulation”. It is a build-a-droid compatible figure so you can use its parts to augment other B.A.D. figures like protocol droids and astromechs. Looks really great displayed alongside your favorite Count Dooku figure.

CONS: Being the only all-new figure in the set made some collectors rankle at “needing” to purchase 5 additional figures to get it. If you have  OCD (obsessive completionist disorder),  you’d be missing out on an official build-a-droid figure (despite it not being advertised as such) if you passed on it.

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

Toyguide Update: Black Squadron TIE Pilot (Droid Factory)

blacksquadpilot_preview

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume with a series of entries covering the Amazon Exclusive Droid Factory Set of Legacy Collection figures. We continue with the addition of the Black Squadron TIE Pilot.

PROS: TIE Pilots have always been one of my favorite Imperial figures and whenever Hasbro finds it necessary, I welcome them being slotted back into the line. This version takes the Evolutions figure from 2009 and changes up the deco slightly and gives it a nice vintage throwback blaster. Fits in any TIE Fighter cockpit you have lying around thanks to ample articulation and a slender body. The overall deco is great with a mix of matte and glossy paint treatments to break up an otherwise solid black figure.

CONS: Only way to obtain this figure was to order a set of figures that you may not have necessarily wanted or needed, making it a relatively spendy figure. Still utilizes those weird legs that sometimes bend at the knee in unnatural ways and no ankle joints – but that’s a minor picking of nits.

Toyguide Update: Sandtrooper (Droid Factory)

amazon_sandtrooper_preview

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume with a series of entries covering the Amazon Exclusive Droid Factory Set of Legacy Collection figures. We start things off with the Sandtrooper.

PROS: Hasbro takes their previous TVC/Lost Line Sandtrooper and gives it a fresh deco/wash and new rank by way of a black pauldron. Plenty of accessories give you a variety of display and play options and the incorporation of the sentry droid into the backpack is a nice feature — albeit not a new one.

CONS: Only way to obtain this figure was to order a set of figures that you may not have necessarily wanted or needed, making it a relatively spendy figure.
