Target Exclusive POP! Han Solo from SASWS

A new image of the Target Exclusive POP! Han Solo from Funko has made its way online via social media. Click the image above for a closer look.  Below is the pertinent DPCI and UPC info per our reveal last month. Thanks to @DisFunko on Twitter for the heads-up/

UPC: 889698269728/DPCI: 323-01-1699

Note: The numbering for this figure is incorrect (which is a pervasive issue for Funko). #248 is already in use on the Mudtrooper.

 

Since Hasbro Wants Ideas

As you are probably aware, Hasbro’s asking collectors like you  for input on figures to fill upcoming waves in the comeback of The Vintage Collection.

So, we thought now would be a great time to remind our readers of some of the amazing concepts for new figures using a combination of new and existing molds that were posted in our forums by different fans, most notably, Yakface Forum moderator localgotal.

So, for inspiration, check out some of the great concepts that were posted HERE, and be sure to be sure to make your voice heard on the Hasbro Pulse Instagram page, and stay tuned as new questions are posed to the collecting community.

Note:  Above figures are a sample of concepts posted in our forums.

Hasbro Pulse: The Vintage Conversation – Q2

Hasbro Pulse has posted their next question for The Vintage Conversation:

“What are your top 3 existing 3.75″ Star Wars super-articulated figure would you like to see updated with new parts or deco to create a new version of that character or possibly even a totally new character? Name the figures and the parts. Be descriptive!”

Post your answer on their Instagram video as well as in our comments to keep “the conversation” going.

Custom 6″ Yak Face from Star Wars: A Custom 1:12 Galaxy

A new customizing community has launched via a private Facebook group. Star Wars: A Custom 1:12 Galaxy is a community of like-minded customizers as well as an educational resource for 1:12 Star Wars custom figures and dioramas. Their customizer’s archive is a variable “cookbook” chock-full of figure recipes, diorama blueprints, tutorial guides and a databank of materials that will allow you to search out and find the unique custom cast parts you need to complete any project. 

To help promote this endeavor, we are proud to debut their recipe and tutorial for an amazing 6″ Yak Face/Saelt Marae figure. Click on through for the detailed images and info.

Be Mindful: The Last Jedi Leaks Abound


As we approach the official release of The Last Jedi, kicking off with the red carpet event this weekend, now may be the time to check out of casual online browsing, especially social media. Entire image galleries from the Visual Dictionary book (released on Dec. 15) have hit sites and even some of the new official TV spots have some pretty surprising reveals (a big one just today) that you may wish to experience in the context of the entire film rather than in a quick clip. Again, official TV spots and trailers are fair game to talk about but if you’re sensitive to “spoilers” the onus is on you to avoid them or seek them out. It is our responsibility to give you the option. If you wish to discuss spoilers, head to our forums.
