Toyguide Update: E-Web Heavy Repeating Blaster


The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with the addition of the E-Web Heavy Repeating Blaster (Sixth Scale Figure Environment) from Sideshow Collectibles.

PROS: Continuing in their tradition of releasing superior product and supplemental accessories, Sideshow outfits their soon-to-be-released Snowtrooper with this signature piece of artillery. The E-Web Heavy Repeating Blaster features a pivoting/rotating cannon, articulated tripod legs, flexible power cord and generator. The entire piece has a weathered gunmetal wash and looks absolutely fantastic in this scale.

CONS: None other than not having the 1:6 scale Snowtrooper in-hand at the time of the E-Web’s release.

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

You can also weigh in with your impressions on the figures we add to our toyguide on facebook and in our forums.
