Princess Leia (as Boushh) - Sideshow Collectibles - 1:6 Scale Figures (2007)
Star Wars Collectible News, Photos, and Reviews

Tag Archives: Luke Skywalker

Without a doubt, the best The Vintage Collection reveal for me is the convention exclusive Luke Skywalker three-pack. This set is the treatment the greatest hero of the Star Wars saga deserves. But I can’t help but think one way this set could have been improved. (more….)

Getting through “Barge Week” was arduous, but it was well worth it. Now that we got that out of the way, we wanted to redirect your attention to a set Hasbro produced over a decade ago that is essential to help complement your Jabba’s Sail Barge (The Khetanna). During 2008’s The Legacy Collection run, Hasbro released the Battle At The Sarlacc Pit Battle Packs set. It gave us our first-ever 3.75″ version of the Sarlacc Pit. It also included a repainted Skiff and five pack-in figures with the worst paint jobs we’ve ever seen. We’ve revisited the review with a massive 120-image gallery, revised text in the review and an Editor’s Note which explains that we do have a Sail Barge now. Anyway, please check out the new images, and see why you may want to consider this for your collection if you don’t have it!

OK, let’s get this party started! The reviews are coming soon, but you can check out crisp images of The Black Series Archives wave 1 figures right now in our RDRs. Most importantly, we have comparison pictures for each figure so you can decide which version of the figure looks better. Here is a quick rundown: Luke Skywalker is better, but not perfect. For one reason or another, the photorealistic paint job looks amateur at best, almost as if it’s a trial run. He doesn’t come with a beautiful application like recent figures. Boba Fett is much-improved. They finally updated his chest armor to the correct color. Amen, Hasbro! Bossk is almost identical to his first issue. But it’s nice to see him again. In all honesty, IG-88 is a significant step backward. He’s still feather-light, has too many holes in his head (that don’t need to be carried forward in the action figure), and got a pretty bad paint job this time around. What’s up with all of that gold? The reviews are coming soon, but check out everything else right now.
