UPDATE: Another 40th Anniversary Vader Legacy Pack Variant

Joining all of the wave 2 card variants for the 40th Anniversary Collection, the Darth Vader Legacy Pack box has also received the text adjustment for the age recommendation – switching to all UPPER CASE. Since Target has given up the ghost on carrying this set, you can continue to find steady shipments of these hitting Walmart.

UPDATE: This text change also extends to the Darth Vader cardback inside the box making for 3 distinct carded versions:

“Red Eyes” variant – lower case text
“Dark Eyes” variant – lower case text
“Dark Eyes” variant – UPPER CASE text

Toyguide Update: 6″ TBS Imperial Royal Guard (#38)

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume with our newest entry in the 6″ Black Series assortment with the Imperial Royal Guard (#38).

PROS:  Since its announcement, the Royal Guard has been high on collectors must-have lists. The underlying sculpt is fantastic and the tailoring of soft goods robe really adds to the overall aesthetic, allowing for a wide range of unencumbered poses.  Collectors will definitely want a couple to flank the Black Series Emperor figure.

CONS: The only one real negative I can find for this figure (aside from its inevitable hard-to-find status) is the included scout blaster. I feel that it is far too small in scale making it hard for the figure to hold convincingly – especially in the figure’s right hand. It should be relegated to the holster and treated as an adornment.

Head to the toyguide for our detailed image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this figure is worth adding to your collection.

Toyguide Update: 6″ TBS Qui-Gon Jinn (#40)

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume with our newest entry in the 6″ Black Series assortment for the venerable Jedi Master, Qui-Gon Jinn (#40).

PROS:  The 6″ Black Series continues to impress with its level of detail, sculpting and paint — Qui-Gon Jinn is no exception as Hasbro did an excellent job of capturing Liam Neeson’s large stature and ever-stoic personna. The overall sculpt of the figure is quite nice with great effort applied in rendering the different textures of the Jedi outfit. Articulation is extensive despite the lack of double-hinged elbows that would have made achieving some two-handed lightsaber stances a bit easier.  Hasbro included an extra “gestured” left hand for striking alternate poses or attempting Jedi mind tricks on your other figures.

UPDATE: a new detail has been brought to light thanks to a few of our readers. The eyes for Qui-Gon are actually separately cast and painted pieces allowing for much greater accuracy and realism!

CONS: The main oversight this figure contends with is the absence of a soft goods robe. Qui-Gon spent a significant portion of The Phantom Menace wearing it so it feel odd without it. Another accessory that could have been a nice bonus is the Jedi communicator (you know, the one that looks like a women’s razor). A previous 3.75″ figure has included it the past – seems a shame not to revisit it for this release.
