The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Recent purchases
« on: September 29, 2013, 12:45 AM »
picked up the Yavin Luke tonight at a shop I didn´t use to buy. Nice, hope to find Mara and stormie from next wave.

Hello guys, I write you all to initiate a new topic about what could mean a realy ultimate 6 inches black series classic darth vader.

I appologize in advance if it could be a very subtle detail, perhaps no significative.... but in a year we estimate that we are offered aproximately 3 to 5 Darth Vader figures, mainly in 3.75 inches.

Since we found lots of HD photos of props, behind the scenes in facebook, or the whole internet,
We discovered that the mask, dome and collar of Darth Vader are not plain uniform black color.

The mask of Vader has a dominó paint job, and I remember some replicas had spotted it.

I got my first Luke pilot from Black Series and it is sculpted with a realism that outmatched previous versions.

So, in search of that realism, do you think Hasbro could give us the ultimate Black series 6 inches sith lord Vader with a dominó mask?
I mean by "dominó" the degradé and alternated parts of silver and black.

Do you think it could be so expensive for Hasbro?

I expect that for a Black Series 6 inches, even the different shades of black among cape, suit and armour.

And finally a removable mask helmet or an alternate Sebastian Shaw head.

Today I picked up #01 Luke Skywalker (luke pilot from anh). Excelent Figure.

Well balanced slave Leia, perhaps some fans need to see the final paint.

Han as in the 3 3/4 mission series, is the first 6 inches action figure which spots the knife cut on the chin
and blue eyes.

Mara is nice, need to see a close up of her face :)

Hope sellers don´t speculate with her price as they did with tvc Gamorrean guard.

For the pics  shown there is more improvement in Luke
from Yavin vs its tlc version, with a more detailed jacket
deco, than in the biker scout, which lacks some paint applications
to match the original tsc vintage biker scout.

han and chewie death star :

the han solo anh is the best of this line overall
his sculpt and painting is decent.

this figure is the first 3 3/4 blue eyes Han in HASBRO kenner history.
Also the first 3 3/4 Han which spots the knife cut on the chin.

Looks as the long seeked evolution of Han from vintage kenner articulation.

The chewie figure dimishes the improvements of this set, poor paint job.

I always thought this time that the new Dagobah training Luke would come
with a fabric removable jacket to fit the scene of "I can´t believe it:" (ESB)

Wish the new stormie and sandtrooper spot removable helmets and more detail for the armour than previous versions.

As I didn´t buy TLC yavin Luke I will buy black series one.

Biker scout perhaps depicts a different paint job; this figure seems to wear grey bands on his thighs.

Picked today TVC Wedge Antilles  VC 28


AT 12 DOLLARS  OR  30 soles

I highly recommend it!

thanks for watching Scockery :)

Yes this Prune Face in Jabba´s palace reminds me

Kenner illustrated the box of vintage Millennium Falcon for ROTJ
with a desert scenario and backround characters like Prune Face and Nien Nunb.

In some old webs I remember some fans brought behind the scenes photos and
cut photos of a sulustan pilot in Tatooine, but I haven´t seen the photo of Orrimaarko
yet from the filming.

Best wishes.
