Yak’s Elite 25 – Final Results Posted

Over a year ago, we began multiple rounds of fan voting by Yakface readers to help identify just which figures our readers wanted to see Hasbro make the most from The Vintage Collection and The Black Series.

The final numbers are in, and we have posted them in our forums.  I think it’s safe to say that the interest in the Original Trilogy still holds very strong based on these results, and both 3.75″ and 6″ totals came to the same “Most Wanted” figure.

Find out which character that is, and check out the full results at the links below!

The Many Expressions of Luke Skywalker

We all know that Luke Skywalker experienced great conflict in The Last Jedi, but I don’t think we were expecting Hasbro’s photo-real tech to emulate such a range of emotions on the new Luke Skywalker figure (VC 146).

For those that have gotten their hands on this figure, what are your impressions?  I have two of them now… one looks really good and I love it; but the other one… not so much.

Let us know your thoughts after the jump!

UPDATE – New expressions added!

More Star Wars @ Dollar Tree

You may recall that back in March, Rogue One figures were showing up at Dollar Tree stores for just $1.00 each.

More Star Wars product has been showing up at various Dollar Tree stores recently for just a buck, such as Hot Wheels Battle Rollers and Black Series Titanium Vehicles.

As always, your mileage and experiences may vary.  Good luck and let us know of your finds (or lack thereof)!

Who Will Lead Your Army?

Hasbro has recently released two very good Stormtrooper figures in the TVC line… ANH Han Solo (removable helmet w/ photo-real technology; Target exclusive) and a basic trooper that marches right out of 2016’s Rogue One.

Now that I have a few of each in my collection, I have my own preference and know which one I plan to “army-build” – but what does everyone else think, or plan to do?  Share your thoughts here or in our forums after the jump!
