Toyguide Update: Emperor Palpatine Mini Bust (2015 PG Gift)

palpatine_bust_TGpreview

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today as we take a look at the Exclusive 2015 Premier Guild Gift Emperor Palpatine (The Empire Strikes Back) Mini Bust from Gentle Giant.

PROS:  Sculpt and paint is well done – especially the robes – with a lot of texture and simulated cloth conveyed through the polyresin material. There are no brittle/thin parts (canes/fingers) to risk damage.

CONS: It is the most basic of the 3 available gift busts available for 2015  PG members. The likeness (while good) is not nearly as definitive as the Darth Sidious but is better than the Return of the Jedi sculpt from 2012. The relaxed pose doesn’t seem fitting for Empire more like something you’d see from The Phantom Menace.

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

Toyguide Update: Stormtrooper Gold Commemorative Mini Bust (PGM Exclusive)

TG_stormtrooper_gold_mB_preview

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today as we take a look at the PGM Exclusive Stormtrooper Gold Commemorative Mini Bust from Gentle Giant.

PROS: In commemoration of their 10 years producing Star Wars mini bust and collectibles, Gentle Giant created a special holiday mini bust for Premier Guild Members. They easily could have just repainted/chromed an existing bust, but if I’m not mistaken, this looks to be an all-new sculpt. The gold chrome treatment really glistens under the right lighting conditions and the inclusion of the Mouse Droid with satirical gift tag “To: TK-421, From: Darth Vader” is a nice bonus as well. Did you know there is another version of this bust too? Click on through for the details.

CONS: Price for this piece to PG Members was $100 and it has doubled in most cases in price on most eBay auctions.

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