The Last Jedi 3.75-inch Hasbro Action Figures

Poe Dameron

Poe Dameron is one of my favorite characters. He's quick on his feet and never gives up. He's a hard core X-Wing pilot that's for sure. In the Last Jedi trailer we see him run and cover from a huge explosion, wonder what that's all about? I hope the First Order didn't blow up his X-Wing again.

The no "The Last Jedi' title is kind of disappointing but the packaging still looks cool with the big "STAR WARS' in red. Can't wait to get my hands on a Force Link so I can hear what he says.
Poe must be a hard character to sculpt his face right. It looks a lot better from The Force Awakens but just not there yet. The sculpt of the figure is perfect, no complaints there.
2015 3.75-inch The Force Awakens
Look at the difference. The paint application and detail is so much better this time. The clear visor on the helmet is a huge plus. Especially since this line is somewhat minimal, it looks great.
2015 3.75-inch The Force Awakens
It perfectly embodies the resistance pilot. The paint and detail on the helmet is my favorite improvement.
The pilots jump suits have always looked good on screen. X-Wing pilots in general are one of the favorites. Vest is detailed on the back, way to be consistent.
This looks like a real hostler. On the previous edition it was more basic. A lot more accuracy was put into this one.
Gloves can rotate on both arms.
Palm of the hand is facing upward. This will be great for those who like to change poses around.
Poe Dameron with Paige. I hear they are a team? I know, so many questions and no answers. It's killing me too.

Rating Score for this figure is 4.08 out of 5. The body sculpt, helmet and paint application is on point. That clear visor is great for displaying Poe with his helmet on. Card like always has beautiful art. It's just that it quit doesn't completely look like him when it comes to the face. Makes it difficult to enjoy if it doesn't look like the character .

They really look cool together, this was fun to shoot.

Paige Resistance Gunner

Paige played by Veronica Ngo, is Rose Tico’s sister. According to Vanity Fair’s Star Wars issue, Paige will be a Resistance Gunner who is trained by the one and only Poe Dameron, played by Oscar Isaac our best Resistance Pilot. This is all we know about her but I know we are excited to learn each character’s roles in The Last Jedi.

Great packaging, well use of their space. Interesting to see there is no "The Last Jedi" title on there. The Force Link feature is neat. Each character has a chip at the bottom of their foot. When using the Force Link apparatus it will play its audio file.

Though limited in articulation, obviously since it's a 5poa figure it has a fantastic sculpt. The head and facial features are well shaped. They are getting so good with these small figures.

Paint application is decent. Some missed spots on the neck and other parts but nothing to major. The jump suit and gloves/boots is awesome. Check out that sweet mask, it clips onto the helmet. Paint detail on the helmet is great, love those different colors.
Accessories include a pistol, attachable mask and helmet.
I think the cap was a good idea to put it as part of the head. Makes it easier for the helmet to fit properly. Who knows, maybe she wears it like that in the movie. We'll find out soon.
Pictures make the suit look orange sometimes but its more of a brown. Some nice detail there on the back of the suit.

Rating Score for this figure is 4.35 out of 5. Sculpt was great. Paint application could use improvements on some parts. Accessories are fantastic and the packaging size is neat.

San Diego Comic Con

Season of the Con

Its that time of year again where all major toy companies start to release all the information they can about their toy exclusives. One of the first to release information about their exclusives is Diamond Comics/ Diamond Retailers. It almost seems disappointing at most to look at their exclusives. They are doing a huge push for their exclusive toy line which is called "Vinimates" These almost seem like their way of competing against Funko and their pop vinyl line. I feel like Funko has already got their foot in the door and taken control of sales in this area. Its almost impossible for anyone to come in this late in the game to compete. But it seems that Diamond wants to try. The only thing that Diamond has going for them is that they are basing these figures off of their previous exclusive toy line called "mini mates" which are drastically smaller but heavily articulated which is the complete opposite to these new Vinimates. However like Funko Pop Vinyl figures the only articulation you see in the figures are the heads. I am sure this helps drive down cost and lends to the ability to add better paint applications. That being said lets look at what we have coming up for the San Diego Comic Con Exclusives from Diamond Comics and their Vinimates line below, and you can be the judge.

Vinimate Exclusives from Diamond Comics for SDCC 2017

First off in the exclusive line is from the Ghostbusters movie. You get both "Burn Victim" Stay Puft, and the glow in the dark Slimer. After that next in line is Robby from Forbidden planet carrying his iconic blaster. If any of these sell or even sell out I think it will be the next one. I feel like Mr. Iron Giant might not be the most iconic, however the most liked out of the 5 figures in the group. And the last of the five is Dark Tower Monster. Who is excited for the new Dark Tower Movie? Oh that would be me.

Diamond thinks if they give us 2 variants at the same time we will buy them both. I don't think this is the case at all. I have never been in love with these busts that they sell either. I am a huge fan of Batman: The Animated Series, however I feel like they are taking this bust line a little too far and its getting out of control. They are losing the idea and concept of what Batman TAS really is. These are very boring and I will see these go on discount everywhere.

Recast with new paint scheme

Diamond along with other major companies are notorious for slapping a new paint scheme on a statue or figure and calling it a variant for exclusive sake. This is the case for Diamond and their upcoming statues for San Diego Comic Con. Both Deadpool and Iron Man are recast PVC statues that aren't even that great in the first place. And now all they have done is made them worse.

Harley Quinn

Fan Favorite

Diamond is releasing yet another Harley Quinn figure statue as an exclusive this year. This one is a very different design from last year. Harley Quinn has become a fan favorite over the years due to what I believe was the creative minds of Amanda Conner and her husband Jimmy Palmiotti. They have changed the way we look at Harley Quinn. She no longer cowers behind the Joker, but has set off on her own missions to create a name for herself. This is a fun Statue of Harley Quinn, however I am not sure how well it will sell due to the fact that it is not as much of a well know costume for her. Lets just hope that after looking over Diamond's exclusive list that this is not a preview for the exclusives to come in the future of all the other major companies that have yet to release their exclusive information.

Star Wars Black Series 40th Anniversary 6-Inch Wave 2

Here's a little a flash back for some of you. The classics!

It's amazing that it has been 40 years since the release of A New Hope. Star Wars has made it into the hearts of many people. This year (2017) Hasbro teamed with Disney and Lucasfilm to celebrate with fans by bringing us back the Vintage look to our modern 6 inch figures. We'll be looking at wave 2 in this review. Wave 2: C-3PO, Storm Trooper, Chewbacca, Jawa, Sand People and Death Squad Commander

C-3PO

"Thank the Maker"

C-3PO is spot on. Honestly I've never seen a bad droid from Hasbro. They make great desk toys for the office.

I really like the detail of the wires and cables. If you look at the markings on the legs it matches the image on its right. Nice work there.

Stormtrooper

"Move along, move along"

Perfection! I love these troopers, they have always been a fan favorite. Now you can display them in this beautifully made card. Can I just say that 40th anniversary stamp is just amazing.

Now its your chance to army build once more! Paint application looks great. Love the blue stripes on the helmet. I never noticed they had the "No stripes trooper" on the card. Thought that was pretty cool.

That DLT-20A Medium Blaster Rifle looks deadly.

Chewbacca

Chewy

This walking carpet is so cool. I like how tall they made him. Also you've got to have the bowcaster.

Considering its very difficult to replicate fur with plastic, it looks great. I'd love to display this in its card, it truly embodies that vintage look.

Jawa

"Utinni"

Yes! I'm going to need like 5 of these. Look at that great detail. Its even articulated.

They eyes look like they are glowing and that Ionization Blaster makes me want to open my R2-D2 and replicate that scene.

Detail on the robe is well done. Nice weathering at the bottom. It's what you would expect if you spent all your days in the sand. Don't think Anakin would approve though.

Sand People

They really knocked this one out of the park. Anytime you get real cloth on a figure it takes it to a whole new level.

That head sculpt looks awesome. I can imagine it would be a difficult one to make but it looks great.

I'm going to enjoy all the parts this comes with for the rifle. Great job on this Hasbro.

Death Squad Commander

More Dark Side troopers to the 6 inch line. This has so much potential for those who like to do custom work.

The helmet is removable and he has a holster. Yep, going to have to have multiple of these too.

That DH-17 blaster pistol included. Well articulated legs, which will be great for posing.

These are such great figures, no disappointment here. If you want to create a display with these, they're perfect for the task. You plan on army building with Troopers, Jawa, Sand People or Squad Commander they are perfect for that too. I know I will be. For any questions please email us at: Sales.ToweringToys@gmail.com

Star Wars

The Empire strikes back

Hot Toys: 1/6 Scale Princess Leia

Disney and Lucasfilm are kicking off with their next big collectible with Princess Leia in her iconic winter Hoth jumpsuit. Princess Leia was announced during Star Wars Celebration in the month of April by Hot Toys Collectibles who always seems to get the likeness spot on when JC Hong and So Young, Lee at Hot Toys are behind the wheel. This team have worked on multiple figures for Hot Toys Collectibles and have never let the fans down. I am positive that they will not let us down this go around. Star Wars fans alike have all united to explain how excited they are for this figure.

Since the Passing of Carrie Fisher this past December in 2016 it feels like every Princess Leia collectible will be cherished even more. Its even more special that they are announcing the Prince Leia collectible figure during Star Wars' 40th Anniversary. So lets just go over everything we are getting with this figure and why it makes it so great.

Princess Lei's Iconic Snow Jumpsuit

I Think we can all agree that the artists have captured every detail to her Princess Leia's outfit while she was stationed on Hoth. It always amazes me that when I see these figures, especially this Leia. There is so much more to her costume that I never noticed. For example I never noticed the mechanical piece on her left wrist that is most likely a com link that is similarly used by Commander Skywalker at the beginning of the film.

Thigh padding on the legs

They might not be so profound in Princess Leia's outfit in the movie but the more photos I look at of her in the Hoth outfit I see that she does have the extra thigh padding that I never noticed before. I think that it might be more noticeable on the figure only because it is much harder to find a material that is thin enough that doesn't show up as much in person as it does on a figure. This is always a complication that toy designers deal with when working with real cloth. Even though it is more noticeable on the figure, in my opinion it still looks amazing to say the least.

DH-17

Blaster Pistol

I am really excited to see Hot Toys include a different blaster into their arsenal of 1/6 scale weapons. I am so used to seeing DL-44 with almost every Hot Toys figure (now I know that is an exaggeration) I truly feel that its about time we get a new blaster. Hot Toys is well known for getting every detail on every item. I expect them to do the same when it comes to the DH-17 blaster. We might not have ever seen Princess Leia wield a DH-17 ever in any of the movies, however it is nice that they are giving us something extra to go with our figure to make the posing that much more fun.

Mynock Mask

This is probably one of my most favorite scenes in The Empire Strikes Back. I am so glad hat Hot Toys decided to include the mynock mask as an accessory for the figure. I know that if I am going to pose Leia, it will be with this mask. The only question is. Will I have to purchase 2 more of these off of EVILbay so I can put them on my Han Solo and Chewbacca to recreate the scene, or does this mean there is a chance that we will get a new Han Solo figure in his Empire cloths? I only hope that we will get another Chewbacca and Han Solo. I am sure those that missed out on getting the first Han Solo and Chewbacca duo would agree that they want another duo pack, and maybe we can get them in DX style so that we get the PERS system. Who knows, maybe we will get lucky.

I am very happy with this figure and all that she comes with. She is loaded with amazing accessories that any normal plain action figure wouldn't come with. Hot toys has once again spoiled us by giving us a figure we can truly enjoy and be proud to display in our homes. make sure you pick up your Hot Toys princess leia at www.sideshowtoy.com before she sells out.

We hope you enjoyed our recap on the Star Wars Princess Leia Hot Toys 1/6 scale collectible figure. For any further questions make sure you please email us at Sales.ToweringToys@gmail.com

Walkers on Scarif by Matt "Captain Kaos"

We love the work that Matt "Captain Kaos" puts in his photographs. You can tell that he really plans out his photos to ensure that each scene fits perfectly with the subject piece. It's not easy to shoot toy photography, however Captain Kaos really makes it look that way. We are happy to announce that we have teamed up with Captain Kaos and are excited to do projects with him in the future. He gives us so much inspiration through his work. We hope that all photographers can see his work and learn new ways to think outside of the box and become great like him.

Guardians of the Galaxy Rocket Raccoon

Hot Toys 1/6 scale Action Figure Review

Hot Toys Rocket Racoon 1/6th Scale

Artist Credit: JC. Hong (Head Art Direction), Viva Lai (Head Sculpt), Lok Ho (Head Paint)

Three (3) pairs of interchangeable palms including: - One (1) pair of relaxed palms -One (1) pair of fists - One (1) pair of palms for holding rifle - One (1) orange and dark grey space suit -One (1) rifle. Figure stand with Rocket nameplate and the movie logo.

It's hard not to be biased but Rocket is my favorite character from Guardians of the Galaxy. I'm very pleased with this figure. What more can you ask from this deadly rodent. He stands at approximately 16 cm tall fully loaded and ready for action. The material and detail on his suit is on point. It's like they literally took it from the movie and shrunk it to 1/6th scale. It has over 17 points of articulation which I've been enjoying too much. Great for posing.

Here's some close ups. If you ever get the chance to obtain one of these, you won't be disappointed. Click the button to purchase while in stock.

By far my favorite pose right here!
The whiskers are so realistic, be gentle though. I don't mess around with them.
The rifle puts into perspective how crazy deadly this little guy is. He seriously packs some heat!
Every detail accounted for, the suit is amazing.

Right side view

This is a really close shot and you can tell how much detail there is in the fabric and stitching.

Back view

Rifle is light, which was necessary because it would probably tip him over too easily. The paint application is perfect, it has that metallic, weathered look.

Rocket Raccoon: Quit smiling, ya idiot, you're supposed to be professional.

Hope you enjoyed this review/unboxing and the photos! For additional questions email me at: Sales.Toweringtoys@gmail.com
