About Sabine mandalorian girl in art attack: it looks like an operation from a video game (sabotage),
but the actions are being trying to be justified; moments before a stormtrooper abused a civilian.

This is for kids, all right, but it is appealing for interest in adults too, cause Disney has looked at artistic motivation.
In a guerrilla campaing, rebels could live solitary lives, and so thus art is their main company.

Art attack is a blink to the contemporary street art, also represents the imaginary against the establishment.

Canīt critic this, for me is acceptable, but not excelent yet.

This is for kids, again, and we are adults, 35 years after we watch an activist artist in rebel lines, wish to listen the speech of a poet soon. (If check OT databank, Teebo was an ewok poet).

Today I look at the Ree Yees pics on JTA site, it is clearly the best sculpt:
cause his hands are not so much smaller than his head.

Only missing in this version: the silver belt buckle sculpt
and the two colours boot deco from 1983 vintage interpretation.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: San Diego Comic Con 2014

The mission series: Wicket and scout are a blend of old and new design, with most effort of paint job done on the ewok than on the trooper.

The scout ressembles in his limbs the vintage 1983 figure, with the adittion of grey mouth.

I see the rebels at at driver has the points on jaws mask for the fisrt time on a 3.75 interpretation. In some photos those pins of his helmet look silver, which is more character accurate. I wish not to wait until december to pick it and compare it with my poft2 at at driver.

Finally, we are now some basic paint jobs are due to crisis and cheap line, but this is a unique chance of new 5poa sculpts, so letīs imagine what would happen if they have painted all them the wasy hasbro kenner did with its POTF2 line.

As SL snowtrooper, stormie, biker and at at driver the modeling is fair for scale, but the lack of detail in paintjob gives the sensation that we are looking at black and white photos.

About the 3.75 new Black Series:

-Leia Yavin offers the slimmest sculpt and best face sculpture, the rubor on her cheeks depicts here as a cute young lady.

Wish Hasbro wonīt altere so much the paint job for this figure till they get her into shelves.

-The clones Rex and Doom are nice too, wish they have removable helmets and paintes soles on shoes.

-Ducth Vander updates face and helmet but omit some details on left arm: the patch over glove and cilindres are plain orange scult; while Hoth Wedge looks with updated painted gloves for an reussed body.

- Dagobah Vader, the  Luke head is more appropriated for a toy cause is on a neutral expression, in contrast to the potj version wich spotted a rictus of death.

This is the best Dagobah fatigues Luke Skywalker so far.

A desirable sculpt (Yoda, Luke, Snowtrooper) to bear in mind for the future black series line.

The Wampa attack Luke is a running change, they must have had made a head without hat and sans scars.

Umm, so Zev was inspired in Mc Quarrie Chewie, I thought it was developped on the basis of The Star Wars lizard Solo.

Perhaps they are going to launch a realistic AT-DP in the near future to fit saga legends, tvc and black series.

It has a cool design, looks likely several versions will be offer as there were with the personal walker por ep iii and clone wars. (animated and realistic)

Kanan oufit has a slight ressemblence to Kyle Katarnīs.

The Rebelsīstormtrooper is curious enough to draw attention but it has needed more black applications on its paintjob.

I like best the saga legends snowtrooper for 2014.

However it lacks paint applications on soles of boots and pouches
the sculpt justifies its purchase.

I agree with a pack of empire soldiers, but perhaps
Hasbro could complete the paint job and varies it a bit;

for instance, making lenses of snowtroopers and stormtroopers green.  ;)

41st Clone trooper (black series from rots)

This Black Series Figure has less color than the former rots figure,
the 2013 figure only spots longer limbs, bigger removable helmet,
no back antenna, no painted soles.

Where the rots figure shows a more intensive all in all paint job.

Hasbro needs to keep the identity of each representation of a saga character,
they usually fail in the tendence "to compensate one new paint application by suppressing a previous one".

It is the similar case with OT storm troopers: when Hasbro "corrects the helmet", they suppress the dots on stomach armour and even the paint for the soles.


How many bucks would be the cost for an all in all well painted stormie? (stomach dots, helmet with blue, light blue, grey and silver, grey squares on ankles and always black soles)

I donīt think it would be as expensive as the build factory Purge Trooper. Even more, Hasbro could made this figure common, not rare. Thus they can stop the reign of speculator selllers and bring order to the galaxy. :)

some thoughts......

maybe is time for a new Bespin Fatigues Luke, based on this Dagobah training figure.

The legs of Dagobah training Luke reminds me of the legs of tvc Hoth Luke, indeed larger than flawed moldmust correct the snwospeeder pilot and dagobah landing pilot with kinda those legs, but fixed hips.

13
Yoda and Luke nice evolution of sculpt
only fix the groin pubis in Luke
and Yoda should come with pants.

Toryn and Wedge could have profit from new bodies instead of reused.

The faces are excellent, hope the mold resists the tons of copies and wonīt spoil mass production.


I donīt like an ep iii vader, it ruins the ot focused wave. They could have released a Dagobah Vader.

14
the stormtrooper seems to show more color in the chin than previous versions
but he misses the dots on stomach armour.
