Toyguide Update: E-Web Heavy Repeating Blaster

eweb_preview

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.

Toyguide Update: 1:6 Scale STAP and Battle Droid

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with the addition of the 1:6 Scale STAP and Battle Droid from Sideshow Collectibles.

PROS: Sideshow’s designers have captured one most iconic vehicles in the prequels to an exacting detail. The STAP itself features adjustable turret/yoke, handlebars and foot pegs to allow the included Battle Droid to achieve various in-flight poses. The sturdy display base also features an adjustable center section to allow you to tilt the STAP and Battle Droid for additional dynamic poses. The included battle droid is a redeco of their first release and molded in a slightly different color. He features plethora of articulation and is, in essence, a mini-maquette of the Battle Droid CGI model. On my particular sample, the included backpack attaches the to the droid much better as the first Infantry Battle Droids’ packs tended to fall off rather easily. The droid affixes to the STAP by way of magnets built into the feet and foot controls – an ingenious idea – and the multi-joint hands allow him to grasp the controls firmly.

CONS: Cost and displaying a piece of this size may be an issue for some and sadly the included blaster rifle still does not attach to the droids backpack.
