Yuppers, this week we are taking an in-depth look-see at the new Vintage Saga Collection: Sand People (Tusken Raider)
Clicky button, Ready Review...
So what makes this guy great? A number of things really... But not the price. If there's one constant flaw in the "Vintage" deluxe line, it's a $10+ pricetag that really kills the joy any collector must feel opening these rockin' figures up...
That said, you do get the most Star Wars figure you ever have gotten for your money with these. The Tusken here features the weakest articulation in this 5-figure set this year, and if this is the worst than consider yourself blessed because the Sand Person is fantastically poseable. The elbow joints are his only real weak spot.
Some loathe softgoods, but I find this figure's to be among the best and my review details why... It's also nice to see 2 pack-in weapons as opposed to just the pike. The rifle's a nicely painted weapon too, and I've got my Tusken sniping away with it.
This is a figure Hasbro could repaint and re-release again and again in the line, and I'd be dumb enough to buy it again and again.
It's the army builder in the VTSC line that's flying under the radar. You'll want a couple trust me, and you'll maybe want to replace your previous sculpts with this guy. It's just a fun figure to play with, so enjoy the review and drop your thoughts here with us too.
