Review: Bib Fortuna - TBS6 [P4] - ROTJ08

The Black Series [Phase IV] Bib Fortuna 6-inch figure is nice, but it isn’t perfect. And it uses parts from an older figure. Learn more by reading the review. (more….)

Review: Bib Fortuna - TVC - VC224

Welcome to another entry in our The Vintage Collection: The Ninety Six column. Hasbro recently committed to collectors that they will be “focusing” on characters in The Vintage Collection that fall under “The Ninety Six” banner. If you’re new to this, it means that there needs a modern counterpart for every classic Kenner figure. Between 2020 and 2021, Hasbro’s made an admirable effort by focusing on these characters. But there is more work to be done, and we’ll figure out where we are step by step. Today we assess Yak Face.

Review: Boba Fett - TBS6 [P4] - ROTJ06

There is quite a bit of talk surrounding the “squished” helmet of The Black Series [Phase IV] Boba Fett (based on Return Of The Jedi). Yes, collectors shouldn’t have to remedy this unfortunate packaging issue, but it’s not the end of the world. Check out our 72-image gallery of this fantastic 6″ figure. (more….)

Wow. If Hasbro didn’t do anything right for The Vintage Collection for the rest of 2021 (which is likely at this point), we probably won’t care. Boba Fett (VC186), based on the character’s appearance from Return Of The Jedi, is the best 3.75″ super-articulated action figure of the year. It’s that good. 177 TVC figures separate the first ROTJ Boba Fett from this one, so we waited a LONG TIME for this update. Oh, and it has one tiny issue. Do you know what it is? Check out the rough gallery and the final review. Some updated images coming soon!! (more….)

1985 THE POWER OF THE FORCE Yak Face: Trilogo Update

In 1984, new packaging for Star Wars figures was introduced for the European market. A cost containment initiative, the new packaging sported three languages of the Return Of The Jedi logo for a “one size fits all” approach. Although a “three-logo” design was created for The Power Of The Force line (as evidenced on some ‘boxed’ toys), it wasn’t carried over to the basic figure line’s card design. They continued to use the three Return Of The Jedi logos instead. Although the word “Trilogo” is found nowhere on the packaging, the term is universally adopted by all Star Wars collectors to describe this line of figures.

We are finishing the Trilogo line up with the final 15 The Power Of The Force Kenner figures, and there weren’t any coins provided with them. Today we revisit Yak Face. The Trilogo version has a darker wash. See the full card art and additional notes by revisiting 1985’s THE POWER OF THE FORCE Yak Face figure HERE.

Review: Boba Fett - DST - 7" Figure

Isn’t the last thing the Star Wars collecting community needs is another scale of action figures? Diamond Select Toys seems to feel otherwise, and there is a new super-articulated 7:version of Boba Fett out there now! (more….)
