New Battle Pack Images Surface

Our friends over at Sandtroopers.com have gotten there imperial mitts on a couple new Battle Pack images. Previously a rumor floated by Mr. Curto at Rebelscum, these new sets consist of the Battle of Orto Plutonia from the Clone Wars featuring Cold Weather Anakin, Obi-Wan, Rex and Chieftan Thi-Sen. The second is the Invasion of Utapau from Episode III featuring Commander Cody, Airborne Trooper, General Grievous and Obi-Wan Kenobi. Although the figures in these packs are repacks, they do include the Galactic Battle Card and Mat for added play value – if you are into that kind of thing that is. Head on over to Sandtroopers.com for a closer look.

CW09 Mandalorian Police Officer

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with the addition of the Mandalorian Police Officerfrom the Clone Wars Collection.

PROS: A nice looking figure for the most part, a little “TRON”-like, but cool. Well armed in the accessory department and the flip-up face shield is nice touch as well.

CONS: Lacks knee and ankle articulation.

VC07 Dack Ralter

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with the addition of Dack Ralter from the Vintage Collection.

PROS: Rogue leader’s gunner gets a nice upgrade from the 2002 version and a must have for Luke’s new snowspeeder. Pack-in rifle is a nice extra as well.

CONS: Nothing really new here, being a TLC repaint and all. A basic (non-exclusive) carded version of Dack before Wedge? Blasphemy!

VC06 See-Threepio (C-3PO)

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with the addition of See-Threepio (C-3PO) from the Vintage Collection

PROS: A far cooler figure once removed from the card. Loaded with sculpted details that are hidden under the removable coverings. Even the removable parts have intricacies on their reverse side. A far better interpretation than the 2004 VOTC figure.

CONS: Seems a little underscaled. The carded presentation neglects to showcase that he has the removable panel feature. Lack of the metalized finish hurts the overall look slightly.

VC04 Luke Skywalker (Bespin Fatigues)

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with the addition of Luke Skywalker (Bespin Fatigues) from the Vintage Collection

PROS: Despite having received a new, super-articulated Bespin Luke a couple years ago, Hasbro managed to fine a way to make it obsolete. This is by far the best interpretation of this figure to date. The deco, likeness, sculpt and articulation are in a word perfect. This figure should easily serve as a base for a future “Dagobah Training” version with a simple torso and arm upgrade.

CONS: A minor quibble – the hole that received the post on the lightsaber hilt is a tad too small and brittle as after a few repeated interactions with the hilt, the tiny loop split. : (

VC03 Han Solo (Echo Base Outfit)

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with the addition of Han Solo (Echo Base Outfit) from the Vintage Collection

PROS: This is the first time we’ve received this particular treatment of the Han in Hoth Gear. A great attention to detail has been given to the parka in particular (although it hangs a tad long) and the contrasting color inner “liner” is a nice touch as well. Facial sculpt is a great likeness to Mr. Ford. The welding tools are nice extras for working on the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy.

CONS: The kitbash body used here is still very gangly and the leg articulation tends to go all “ostrichy” in when in comes to the knee joints. Holster is a kind of sloppily attached esthetically. The hair-do seems a bit “off” at some angles.
