Toyguide Update: BARC Speeder Bike with Clone Trooper Buzz

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with the addition of the Walmart Exclusive BARC Speeder Bike with Clone Trooper Buzz from The Clone Wars Collection.

PROS: After a delayed release, the set finally makes it way to retailers just in time for Christmas. Decent deco on the trooper (which recycles the “Jesse” sculpt). Fits well on the speeder nicely due to the ball jointed hips. Look great with the other 41st Elite clones released thus far.

CONS: Availability is hit or miss right now. Some might not like the sculpt selection for the figure and the fact that the figure and speeder included does not match the sculpts shown on the back of the packaging.

Head to the toyguide for the full image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this figure 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.

Vintage Wave 4 Resurfacing at Wal-Mart

The 4th wave in The Vintage Collection never seemed to reach full distribution, but some cases now appears to be making their way through the pipeline finally.  Our friends at Jeditemplearchives are reporting sightings of this wave at Wal-Mart, and I saw the same thing today at a St. Louis area Wal-Mart.

So if you’re in the hunt for any of these figures still (and some are really good), keep your eyes open for this wave.

And remember to keep sharing details of your Recent Acquisitions in the forums!

Forum Poll – Discover The Force

With each passing week, we’re inching closer to the new Wal-Mart exclusive Discover the Force line being released, which to the delight of collectors has several all new sculpts included in it.

This wave is tied to The Phantom Menace promotion, and we’re curious to see what figure is the most anticipated by Yakface readers.

Wave 9 Hitting Hard at Walmart

This morning I found the mother lode of Vintage Wave 9 (6 cases worth) at my local Walmart. This store typically is very slow for new merchandise so it just emphasizes the point that you need to check your stores consistently, even the bad ones, it will eventually pay off.

If that is little comfort, fear not, we are going to be giving away a Vintage Collection Bastila Shan, Walrus Man and Rebel Soldier on facebook. Watch for details this Friday!
