As The Force Awakens draws closer we get new information, new trailers, and…new toys! With the Guavian Enforcer, Captain Phasma, Constable Zuvio and Poe Dameron the second wave of 6-inch Black Series figures is hitting stores now. On this episode of Star Wars Action News Marjorie and Arnie review this new wave of figures–and try to guess how they fit into the new movie. And they also review the new KMart exclusive Kylo Ren – Starkiller Base Black Series figure.
Also on this week’s show, with tomorrow’s release of Battlefront the game, Brock joins us to look at the Star Wars: Battlefront novel Twilight Company. He also reviews the new audiobook adaptations for the young readers’ adaptations of A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi.
With Berent’s report from Gentle Giant Days in Burbank, a rundown of new Star Wars merchandise hitting stores, and more, it’s all in this episode of Star Wars Action News!
We’ve received an intelligence report from a trusted source that there are plans for an exclusive 6″ Black Series Trash Compactor scene in the works. Our rebel spy was able to see a newly sculpted head for the existing 6″ Luke Skywalker in Stormtrooper Disguise. It is unknown at this time if it would include multiple figures (Han, Chewie, Leia, and Luke) or if it would be something like the recent Kmart Exclusive Kylo Ren (Starkiller Base) as the concept is still looking for an official retail partner. More to come….
Thanks for the report Bob!
The Yakface Toyguide updates continue with the addition of the Kmart Exclusive 6″ Kylo Ren (Starkiller Base) from The Black Series.
PROS: A big selling point of this version of Kylo Ren is the treatment of his unique lightsaber – which is far superior to the original Black Series design. Instead of relying on a removable blade to contain all three blades, the cross-guard lightsaber is cast all in one piece and collectors are given a separate unlit hilt as an accessory. The deco of this figure is much improved over the #03 release as tighter paint apps have been used on the helmet. Although, the snow effect applied to the soft goods may be a little heavy for my tastes. Kylo Ren has been given a unique “force gesture” left hand which is very expressive in its tooling and excellent for recreating footage we’ve seen thus far. The interlocking base included in this set is a section of the Starkiller Base’s snowy terrain which works very well. It features deep depressions to hold Kylo’s feet rather than foot pegs to keep him stable. If you’re a non-opener, the overall presentation of this exclusive is perfect for on-shelf display with a nice window box presentation and a cool forest background for the figure that sets it apart from other exclusives in the line.
CONS: There are reports that several people who preordered this through Kmart.com have had their items cancelled without warning. It is unknown at this time the official reasoning behind this but customers are left empty handed in some cases. Kmart as a chain of stores has been steadily diminishing over the past several years so acquiring one of these first hand may prove difficult.
Head to the toyguide for our detailed image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this figure is worth adding to your collection.
