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.

UPDATE 2: Star Wars: The Digital Movie Collection Coming to Vudu?

SW_vudusm

We’ve been wondering for a while what the deal is with Hasbro’s Digital Release Commemorative sets, well wonder no more as we can now confirm that the Star Wars saga is coming via digital release through Vudu.com. The url (vudu.com/starwars) is currently inactive, but Walmart is now displaying marketing with the announcement stating an April 10 availability. Click the image above for a closer look.

Thanks to swshadow07 for the image.

Update: No fooling, it is real (thanks to Aric R. for the link)

Update 2: Links have been removed from Vudu.com

SAGA Legends Price Hikes at TRU

hike

Toys”R”us stores are starting to jack up the price on the single Legends figures.  While other retailers have kept these in the $6 range, Toys”R”us apparently thinks they can get quite a bit more.  The price is pretty outrageous, in my opinion, especially since this line is supposed to be more economical for the kids (so we’re told).

Head to the forums to see what these will probably ring up for at the register if you decide to purchase any of these at your local Toys”R”us, and share your thoughts!

Play Arts Kai figures made quite and impression on collectors this week with the reveal of not one, but two figures: the Stormtrooper and Boba Fett. Will these figures tempt you to the dark side?

UPDATE: Saga Legends/Rebels Assortments Discontinued?

rebelsdiscontinued

In what will surely provide great joy and additional grist for the mill to a certain segment of collectors, there is word from Andrew’s Toyz via Facebook that Hasbro has discontinued current cases assortments for the Saga Legends/Rebels line.

Hasbro has discontinued the current Saga Legends figure assortments and will not be making additional shipments. We may receive some cases of Wave 7, but we are not sure at this time. While unconfirmed, this is likely to devote resources towards The Force Awakens product line.

We have reached out to Hasbro via Hunter PR for any comment.

UPDATE: We have clarification from our sponsor at DorksideToys, the current cases assortments are sold out (not canceled) and won’t see another production run.

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.

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