The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: NYCC 2014

The new 6ĻEmperor Palpatine spots a frown visage, and wider face than previous versions.

Yoda 6 inches was closer to a neutral face sculpt; while they nailed that gesture on saga legends 2 pack.

The case of Boushh Leia, both 6 and 3.75 is that they achieved the casual look of young Carrie, a better
eyes makeup, and that ideal of determination glance for a hero or heroine.

Its crucial for her appearence how her sculpted lock of hair on her forehead softens her expression.

Carbonite Han and Boush Leia hide knee articulations perfectly on 3.75 inches scale.
I wonder if Mossep skirt has a slot at the side to let him seat on a playset.

The 6 inches line is refreshed with Luke stormtrooper and Leia Boush; in certain way that would be the best face sculpt for
the last Slave Leia.

Hi Nicklab, I havenīt seen aliens, but indeed lots of influences from major films are soon to be unveiled.

Perhaps the narrative of the series will get even more complex as the animation team explores the sources
from drafts and also EU.


I think for Kallus survival and similar situations (a guy holding from a column, a broken wall in a vacuum tempest)
there lack details, and maybe one of them could be the use of a repulsor lift device inside their belts.

SW never needed to explain technology, cause always the movies accepted it for granted, but
in times of realism in cinema, they could give a glimpse on that. Cheers :)

I liked how they showed the interior of the star destroyer.

And they explore the perils of space travels like the scene of descompression where some
stormies and personal were swallow by space.

Kallus survived that and another risk clinging over the abyss.

As these scenes are fast,a nd for kids, they donīt tell us much on "how the agent managed to survive", but is
like a bit of information about what is consider in the imperial survival training.

Thanks for comment Jesse, I liked your post.

I watched some clips reviews and if my eye does not fail....
seems there are 2 versions of that #21 Luke from Dagobah.

The one without wrong paintjob on hair could come with
a darker tone of it (more closed effect of painting)

while the semi bald is more orange-light brown.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Wanted corrected carry forwards
« on: September 5, 2014, 09:13 PM »
Hi collectors

We have seen at black series some corrections of past line, like the Dak Ralter tvc into tbs getting his darker boots.
The TBS #21 Luke Skywalker (dagobah training) could perhaps get the correction of the current irregular hair paintjob and darker boots to differentiate them from the pants.

I checked at this blog, one unit of this figure which spots almost complete brown paint on the hair.

http://comeseetoys.blogspot.com/2014/07/star-war-black-series-375-luke-yoda.html


Maybe tvc dagobah landing Luke could get longer legs to deal with his arms.


I thought I could buy one Dagobah Luke like the one on the quoted blog, but at a mall,
in my country, after visiting 2 shops, both units presented the premature baldness issue,
which is really disgusting.


Which figures will you buy if Hasbro corrects errors in upcoming carry forwards?

Do you think is more likely to correct paintjobs rather than sculpts?


Thanks for your attention.

Today watched "Entanglement" short:

-The tie fighter pilot sans helmet looked like the TSC imperial gunnerīs face.  :)

-For the plot, the production team must determine "the range of wave explosin" of a TIE fighter (troopers survive)

-The foretold oppression of the empire touches a very domestic sphere: soldiers persecuting ambulant fruit sellers.
Maybe it turn into how they conquest a planet (like mandalor from cw) but until that, the oppressed ughanut is only an emotional leit motiv for a poor harmless guy, cause he doesnīt provide more background of that status quo.

-Zeb is a blend of bodyguard and bouncer, if he is intended to provide a "Chewie role", with the plus of his speech,
must say that the wookie on OT was more expressive in gestes and actions.

-Seems animation colour is a bit brighter than CW, due to that sunny desert but also because production line wants a less sombre
narration.

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 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.
