Elite Series TFA Han Solo Found


Yakface reader Charlie G. writes in with store report after finding the Han Solo Elite Series figure this morning in Lutz, FL:

Just wanted to say I was at a Disney Store Outlet this morning and purchased the Han Solo you guys recently mentioned. The store also had about 12 of the First Order Squad Leaders figures in stock but I passed on it. The outlet bizarrely only received two Han Solo figures, one of which I purchased. Happy Hunting!

Sideshow 1:6 Scale Han Solo in Carbonite Preorder


Sideshow Collectibles is now taking preorders for their 1:6 scale Han Solo in Carbonite figure.

Multiple display options are available as the carbonite slab is able to be positioned both horizontally, as it is moved through a Bespin hallway, and vertically, as rests in the freezing chamber.  The base itself has swappable floor options to further enhance whichever way collectors choose to display the piece.  Further, there is illumination in the base and along the carbon slab control panel.

Toyguide Update: Kanan Jarrus (Stormtrooper Disguise)


The Yakface Toyguide updates continue for our next entry in the Rogue One 3.75″ basic figure assortment with Kanan Jarrus (Stormtrooper Disguise).

PROS:  Instead of simply swapping heads with the previously existing stormtrooper body, Hasbro elected to create an all-new mold – one that is markedly improved over the original. The figure reflects Kanan’s taller stature as well as captures a better representation of the character’s animated likeness. Hasbro also created an all-new lightsaber for Kanan with this release – although not as detailed in sculpt as the previous version. The helmet is well proportioned and doesn’t appear overly bulky when worn. In total, there are a lot of useful accessories for extended and expanded playability.

CONS: The pauldron doesn’t fit the greatest when the helmet isn’t being used. Ugh, that disk-firing projectile. For some reason, I just don’t like it (in what ever flavor it comes in).

Head to the toyguide for our detailed image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this figure is worth adding to your collection.

Toyguide Update: Disney Parks Droid Factory Rogue One Astromech Set


The Yakface Toyguide updates continue shifting to the Disney Parks exclusive Droid Factory Rogue One Astromech Set.

PROS:  Astromech collectors/fans have had a lot of reason to rejoice over the last few months as there have been several droid offerings, in different scales,  from the different licensees this year. This set is solely dedicated to the droids of Rogue One, and while we don’t know anything about how they play into the overall story, it’s great to get a complement of droid to bolster the ranks of the 3.75″ scale. These droids utilize the proprietary build-a-droid sculpt from Disney Parks’ continuing Droid Factory program meaning that all of the parts from each droid are cross-compatible.  Decos for the most part are excellent and really stand apart from one another.

CONS: None really to speak of other than a few paint masks that didn’t quite hit their mark on a few of the droids. It would’ve also been great to get a bit of backstory for each of the droid to know what factions they line up with and to whom they may belong.

Head to the toyguide for our detailed image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this set is worth adding to your collection.
