Toyguide Update: Luke Skywalker and Han Solo (MS15)

MS15_Luke_han_preview

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume with the latest entry in the Star Wars Rebels 3-3/4″ line. Next, we take a look at the Luke Skywalker and Han Solo Mission Series set (MS15).

PROS: The Mission Series sets (and Saga Legends figures in general) have come a long way since their inception. Sure, you’ll still run into some jacked paint apps here and there, but Hasbro has made these two relatively simplistic figures in to some of the best incarnations in this outfit ever. Seriously, grab a copy of The Ultimate Action Figure Collection and compare the sculpts of these figure to previous versions. Taking articulation out of the equation, it’s hard to find fault with either Luke or Han.

CONS: Due to their limited articulation, these figure won’t be riding a Tauntaun anytime soon, unless you have some Vintage Kenner ones laying around –admittedly we didn’t see if they’d even fit.

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

Confirmed: New Princess Leia (Yavin Ceremonial) Not Canceled

Princess-Leia-Yavin

We gladly pass this information on to all of our readers (and Leia fans), directly from Hasbro & HunterPR:

The STAR WARS Black Series 3.75-inch Princess Leia (Yavin Ceremony) has been delayed due to a production issue with Princess Leia’s robe. However, we are currently working through this issue and you will be able to find her on shelves later this year. Also, we can confirm that the STAR WARS Black Series Princess Leia (Boushh Disguise) 3.75-inch and 6-inch items will be available later this summer.

In addition, you can find a STAR WARS Saga Legends Princess Leia (Endor) 3.75-inch as well as a STAR WARS Mission Series Princess Leia (A New Hope) 3.75-inch on shelves later this spring.

Toyguide Update: Ezra Bridger (Cadet) and Kanan Jarrus (MS18)

MS_ezra_kanan_preview

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume with the latest entry in the Star Wars Rebels 3-3/4″ line. Next, we take a look at the Ezra Bridger (Cadet) and Kanan Jarrus Mission Series set (MS18).

PROS: Kanan is old hat at this point so we’ll focus on Ezra, or “Dev Morgan” as he’s known in this attire. The sculpt is pretty decent (if we don’t get a Zare Leonis recycled from this body I’d be shocked). The face sculpt has much crisper details than prior Ezra portraits – those were softer in sculpt especially around the nose and mouth. The hair is the same, just at darker color. The paint is okay for the most part except for that one odd mistake (see below). The cadet helmet is the same sculpt as before but has the character specific markings from the episode “Breaking Ranks”. Two figures for $10, hard to complain about that especially for kids these days.

CONS: Aside from getting our fourth taste of Kanan in action figure form, there are a few Ezra related issues. First off, Ezra’s head is a little wobbly at the neck joint – at least on my sample – your experience may vary. The most odd issue though is the fact that he has the wrong symbol painted on his left shoulder. It should be the Imperial crest/cog, but it is the Galactic Republic emblem. Kids won’t give a second (or first) thought about it though. It is unknown at this time if it will be addressed in future production runs. Finally, the Ezra cadet figure is about 1/4″ shorter that the standard “Rebels attire” Ezra due to the fact that the legs are a bit shorter.

Toyguide Update: Hera Syndulla and Stormtrooper Commander (MS19)

MS19_hera_STC_preview

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume with the latest entry in the Star Wars Rebels 3-3/4″ line. Next, we take a look at the Hera Syndulla and Stormtrooper Commander Mission Series set (MS19).

PROS: Hera fans rejoice! We finally have received the figure we’ve been waiting for and it doesn’t disappoint. Original solicitation images caused a bit of worry initially because Hera’s green skin tone was very washed out. Thankfully, the production release is a far more vibrant hue. As standard fare for the Saga Legends/Star Wars Rebels line, she has only 5 POA, but it is a well executed figure from paint, proportions and sculpt. Despite having the lekku (aka head-tails), the head is unencumbered by them allowing for a full range of swivel movement. The Stormtrooper Commander is a simple re-accessorized version of the SL01 figure with a non-removable command pauldron, although it does move freely so I’d expect maybe a white or black version in the line’s future.

CONS: The biggest con of this set is that it took so long (six months) after the debut of the series to get the main cast/crew of The Ghost. Hera’s blaster is very tiny and she has nowhere to stow it due to a non-functional boot holster so be sure to keep a close eye on it. This set is surely to be a desired one on the secondary market (i.e. eBay or unscrupulous merchants at cons) – but don’t overpay as this set is 2 per case in this assortment and 3x in a revision case.
