Toyguide Update: VC62 Han Solo (In Trench Coat)

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with the addition of Han Solo (In Trench Coat) (VC62) from The Vintage Collection.

PROS: Great articulation, paint and the new coat fits well and looks good. Overall a nice improvement of the 2006 version.

CONS: Kind of seems like a wasted slot in the Vintage Collection considering he’s been released on a Vintage card before.

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

Toyguide Update: VC70 Ponda Baba

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with the addition of Ponda Baba “Walrus Man” (VC70) from The Vintage Collection.

PROS: Hasbro has again rendered all previous versions useless, not to mention laughable, with this ground up rework of fan favorite Ponda Baba. Great sculpting details in the jacket. The inclusion of both style of hands and the switch out severed arms is what playing with toys is all about! Paint operations are minimal, but well done (kudos to Hasbro for painting that little snap on the jacket pocket).

CONS: Nothing major, his head seems a tad under scaled, jacket could use a dirty paint wash and Hasbro gave him the wrong blaster and he’s missing the yellow stripes down each of his pant legs. Also, too bad his partner in crime, Dr. Evazan, isn’t on the pegs at the same time.
