Toyguide Update: Clone Trooper Lieutenant (Lost Line)

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with the addition of the Clone Trooper Lieutenant (EP2-02) released as part of the Kenner Lost Line variant packaging for The Vintage Collection.

PROS: It’s surprising that it took Hasbro this long to start repainting the ultra-articulated VC45 Clone Trooper into some of peripheral clone officers from Attack of the Clones. There is not a whole heck of a lot new here but the execution here is good with an accurate color selection for the armor flashes and a fairly decent application of them. Again like the VC45 version, articulation is abundant making with widest range of posing options possible. Accessories are basic with the standard trooper kit of a blaster, rifle and removable helmet.

CONS: A solid figure all around but maybe the only issue with it is that the paint treatment looks odd around the ankles as I don’t recall the black body suit being visible on the Phase I clones. Again with most figures, finding one at retail may be a bit of a chore, but they are turning up in decent numbers at Walmart and Toys”R”Us on both card back variants.

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

AOTC Yoda Line Look Confirmed

In February we brought you the first look at the Yoda line look Lucas Licensing has planned for merchandise in 2013 to coincide with the Attack of the Clones in 3D marketing. On friday, SDCC hosted a Star Wars Collectibles panel and within the presentation you can see confirmation of this theme throughout first few pages of the slideshow.

VC34 Jango Fett

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with the addition of Jango Fett from the Vintage Collection’s Attack of the Clones wave (Wave 4).

PROS: Pretty much the definitive Jango in terms of sculpt and accessories. Re-worked, scene specific gauntlets are a nice touch as is the new jetpack and missile.

CONS: The gauntlet blades are not removable (i.e. they are deployed all the time). Overall color of the jumpsuit seems to still be “off” a bit but it’s a vast improvement over the grape flavored version included in the recent Geonosis Arena set.
