VC42 Han Solo (Yavin Ceremony)

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with the addition of Han Solo (Yavin Ceremony) from the Vintage Collection.

PROS: A decent iteration of our favorite scoundrel from A New Hope. Nice to finally have a ceremony version (sort of) to accompany Luke.

CONS: Sculpt for the shirt entirely wrong for the scene intended to be recreated. Still missing the thigh strap for the holster that was present on the superior 2004 VOTC sculpt.

VC40 R5-D4

The Yakface Toyguide updates continue today with the addition of R5-D4 from the Vintage Collection.

PROS: Looks stellar on the vintage card. The body has a dirty wash (albeit faint) that some were fearing might be omitted from this “new” version. Since this utilizes the build-a-droid mold, parts can be swapped with other B.A.D. astromechs for additional play value and customization.

CONS: Vestigial Build-A-Droid holes in the figure’s sides not really fitting for the Vintage “collector” line. Back of the body still missing orange panels that Kenner seemed to notice on the 1978 figure and that were present on the Target Exclusive Remote Controlled version.

VC39 Luke Skywalker (Death Star Escape)

The Yakface Toyguide updates return today with the addition of Luke Skywalker (Death Star Escape) from the Vintage Collection.

PROS: A somewhat new take on a classic character as the previous version was little more than a statue. The modification of the Resurgence of the Jedi Battle Pack Luke works well here especially with the added soft goods. Decent likeness and a fair amount of accessories.

CONS: Comlink accessory is very tiny and can be easily lost if precautions aren’t taken to secure it. Would have been swell if we could have received a headset accessory too in order render that POTF2 Gunner Station Luke obsolete as well.
