Perhaps sandstorm figures will come with softgoods cloak scarfes, tlc Luke from sandstorm was pretty well done, the only update could be the flesh coloured right hand with the blast wound, unless Hasbro retools the Endor Capture Luke to fit this outfit.

The submarine battle showed great improvisation of mini rigs, many like sledges.

Jettser species is an aquatic turtle

Almost all non human in the spot are anphibius, it lacked some gungans.

Seems like they caught some accuracy in the underwater movements of the characters, cause when fighting, the H2O element tends to ralentize or slow action.

This UBP means a welcome evolution on the X Wing

the dashbord in sculpt targeting computer, torpedo launcher, the section for the landing gear,
looks as if the size has been profitted to the milimeter.

Moreover the paint job is superb! ;) The turbines show yellow and grey sections, the wings show more panels painted grey or red.

I supossed they would have launch a bigger X wing, perhaps later, but this ship is far enough for this year.

The diorama remembers the detail of potf2 cantina and Jabba´s palace diorama.

I picked today tvc 4 Lom at E .Wong in Lima, Perú at a price of S/.20.97  ;)
that means US$ 7.5 at current price. Normally toys in Lima from USA cost 2.5 times the States price.

Well, I´m glad with the offer cause I didn´t pick the tlc 4Lom, perhaps I gonna look for the original coin at retail.

1:6 Scale Figures and Collectibles / Re: 12" IG-88? Oh my.

Great depiction of both characters in the 12 inches line.

The wires of IG88 knee joints are flexible enough to vary his pose. The paintjob impressive metalized body, chrome, bronce and oxid: the worn look.

Boba Fett is also a cool evolution of this scale, specially the gauntlets... today at minimum detail.

after looking at sandtroopers´review it seems that the tvc version have improved the paintjob (in some stripes, turbines, wings) only it appears like the interior of the cockpit has less details coloured than the tlc Dagger Squadron release.

The details are pretty decent, there wasn´t time for a bigger scale yet, but decoration on this sheep is evolving.

It is an enviroment near the Yoda Hut´s concept from Sideshow. Today companies sell enviroments to configure accurate dioramas. Looks that inside the arch of the enviroment is enough room for the 2 chairs, Han y Greedo 12 inches scale. 8)

Environment, Diorama and playset, very near concepts among them. Perhaps 2012 will be the time for Hasbro 3 3/4 environments (like potf2 FX conectable bases).

The sculptors have advanced in the depiction of the articulation for BD. They included silver rings for the hip and knee joints. This detail remembers me the last interpretations of C3PO from Sideshow, the silver rings at neck base and shoulders articulation. Whereas 3 3/4 figures hardly spotted those minimum details.

After revisiting some databank of otc and saga, I realized we had an early version of the snowtrooper commander, but he wasn´t depicted in a natural position, more intended to look as a gunner.

Thinking about this update, I wonder if a recipe could contain:

-tvc at at commander chest armor
-tlc at at driver boots and gloves
-a larger skirt soft goods preferably
-head under helmet: something like Cody, Bly, etc
helmet mask: with the top part a bit highlighted as a different layer.
The holster on right side of belt

The figure needs to be taller than saga legends tvc snowtrooper, requires
more poseability, he has to acquire a nice neutral "ready" stance.

After reading your post first I think about some build a droid we want to see on a single blister, like BGJ38 or the black dark trooper (too big for traditional blister)

I would like to see some build a trooper figures like the biker scout, black stormtrooper, a tvc update of the hoth snowtrooper commander, rebel technician. I prefer OT characters or EU from Ot timeline, considering most OT updates are kitbashes (swap heads, different paintjobs on uniforms, etc)

I would support the build a trooper line, but perhaps this could be the end of the beloved Vintage style card, cause, there isn´t room for extra pieces. A proof for this argument:

When tvc line launches Revenge of the Jedi card, the repack of tlc Slave Leia comes without the extra torso.

The charm of vintage style cards lies too much on the big photos of the characters, and today on the scanning of vintage pictures to a dvd or blu ray definition on print.

BTW, build a trooper would be an idea for a wise developement, a chance to redefine and aproximates issued figures to the always wanted "definitive versions".

Hey Hasbro! / Re: Questions for Hasbro?

Dear Hasbro,

As collection evolves, I want to ask you When is scheduled an update for the classic stormtrooper?
I like the tlc figure, and its variations on tvc line, but looking at what you did recently with characters like commander Fordo, the heads of Cody, etc., I thought you can offer us a new imperial stormtrooper with the following upadtes:

A new sculpt with independent pieces of shoulder plates. Perhaps as an extra layer, detachable or not, you will decide.

A little more opened chest section showing a bigger portion of the black suit.

Longer legs more relief on the layers of armors too.

Paintjob: mark always the black, gray or blue dots on stomach armor.
Mark the grey and black of the "teeth" on helmet.
Paint always the grey square on stormtroopers heels.

Give us another headsculpt, like Fordo without beard.

I am sure thousands of collectors would appreciate your effort.

Hope detailers and online shops will sell the figures separately, cause I don´t like to repeat them.

Looking for Farlander B wing pilot, Tie fighter pilot, Black Rebel Commando.

This evolution of the Rebel Soldier Deck Officer must anticipate a new depiction of the vests, a more detailed job on them as they include squares, badges, the collar of the cloth coiled. Indeed Luke from Hoth would need another depiction of his beige vest, but this indicate Hasbro has marked a new concept on their tendency for clothes depiction. The gloves and their bracelets are more marked, another layer in relief that rises over the shirt layer (at arms level)

Nice: the cannon concept for Han´s taun taun which was the belly opened animal. An interesting variation on vintage style Hoth Han, hope the figure sits on the mount ok. The rider will need a system of articulation similar to the dewback sandtrooper from tvc.

Now we wait for a cool tvc evolution of Hoth Luke, the character deserves a taller figure, with ultimate detail on clothes sculpt and removable hat.
