The “Lost Line” Look

A few people have sent in questions regarding source material for the “lost line” look that Hasbro will be using on 6 of the individual cards included in SDCC Exclusive Carbon Freezing Chamber set (and on Limited Edition chase/variant cards available later at retail).

For the answers, look no further than The Star Wars Collectors Archive web site for illustration images of this abandoned concept to the iconic 1977-1985 Kenner packaging design we know today.

As you’ll see, the new cardbacks are very faithful to the original concept and exude that “70’s” feel.

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.

You can also weigh in with your impressions on the figures we add to our toyguide on facebook and in our forums.
