We just got back from New England so of course the first thing we do is generate a sneak peek gallery of the HASCON exclusive Clone Captain Rex The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ figure. Simply stated, it’s a great release. Hasbro did a fine job on replicating this character in realistic style and including functional parts while providing collectors with a fantastic likeness. Older parts have been reused for Clone Captain Rex, but he has also been given plenty of new parts too. The paint job is fantastic and the deco is evenly placed and nicely applied. The accessories are generous and sized appropriately. The review is coming soon, but you can check out our 40-image gallery and basic Collector Notes now. Enjoy!
Back in January we “teased” an exclusive rumor that focused around a wave of Walmart exclusive The Black Series [Phase III] 3.75″ figures. The lineup ended up changing a bit, although we’re now inclined to believe the female X-wing pilot from Episode VII was confused for Rose. Snoke was bumped out of many initial assortments for reasons still unknown, but we imagine he is still planned for The Vintage Collection. And of course we didn’t know what the “new” Royal Guards were going to look like until the new production images leaked. Now thanks to another source of ours we’re able to provide you with a first look at this final wave of The Black Series [Phase III] 3.75″ figures (which are technically Walmart exclusives at this very moment) but should be available everywhere online soon! Slated with a November street date, you can check out these four super-articulated 3.75″ action figure RIGHT NOW!
As soon as the news broke that Yoda and Obi-Wan Kenobi were part of the Star Wars [The Last Jedi] line, most collectors wanted to know how they differed from past versions. We just found the new Star Wars [The Last Jedi] Obi-Wan Kenobi at Walmart this morning, much to our shock and surprise. The figure has a beautiful sculpt and its deco is interesting. Hasbro utilized the “dot matrix” application to add streaks and highlights to his hair. The robe shell is removable and his arms are attached via ball-socket articulation, certainly a strange approach for an action figure in the Star Wars line. He comes with his signature lightsaber as well. There are rumors that he is to make some sort of an appearance in Episode VIII, so this action figure seems to help add more fuel to that fire. Check out our rough early RDR page by clicking the image below.
Well, we just discovered that Hasbro has tooled the best 3.75″ Boba Fett action figure of all time. It’s one half of the new Han Solo/Boba Fett Two-Packs set. Sadly, it only comes with five points of articulation. Regardless, it has the greatest head sculpt we have ever seen for this character and possesses a silhouette that perfectly matches the onscreen character. Hasbro, if you’re reading, please convert this figures to super-articulated status so that we can finally have our definitive 3.75″ Boba Fett action figure (and without a removable helmet). It would be the perfect candidate for The Vintage Collection’s return.
As soon as the news broke that Yoda and Obi-Wan Kenobi were part of the Star Wars [The Last Jedi] line, most collectors wanted to know how they differed from past versions. With thanks to Hasbro and Litzky PR for providing us this sample, we’re able to give you some details. The review will be coming in the near future, but here are the nuts and bolts: Yoda comes with eight points of articulation. The shoulders are ball-jointed, the head is a reverse ball-socket joint and his ankles come with standard ball-socket articulation. He also comes with a swivel waist. What he doesn’t come with are two separately moving legs. There are no hip joints and his lower body is one chunk of plastic. His likeness is excellent. His coloring is OK. And his accessories are based on his appearance from Star Wars Episode II: Attack Of The Clones. There are rumors that he is to make an appearance in Episode VIII, so this action figure seems to help add more fuel to that fire. Check out our rough early RDR page by clicking the image below.
