I compared the SLC Yak Face staff to my Barada staff and they looked so similar that I decided it would be best to just snip the SLC staff into pieces and throw it away. I didn't want to risk getting it mixed up with the authentic staff from my Barada figure.I know it makes vintage collectors nervous (especially the accessories)
I feel the same about Stormy Luke, you can buy a genuine figure ( with out helmet or blaster ) for nearly the same price as a repro one :/I would be willing to purchase a loose Snags but not for $50. I didn't want to pay that much for an original years ago, why would I pay that much for a repro now?
I have to disagree about Grand Admiral Thrawn. I am pretty excited about him. He debuted in a book that appeared only 6 years after the end of the Kenner Line. I was younger. Time moved a lot differently for me then. But 6 years really isn’t a crazy amount of time here so I think he fits just fine.
What I like about Glasslite R2-D2 is that it's sort of a hybrid between POTF R2-D2 and Droids R2-D2. I'm considering buying just the one Glasslite R2-D2 in place of buying both POTF and Droids R2-D2.I picked up a loose glasslite Artoo as I fear Hasbro will NEVER make one. Very impressed.
Ok in a nutshell they are one in the same or at least they were. Smithlord started all of it but then sold the molds and company to The Fans Strike Back. Stan Solo is the new company he has come up with. He does not represent Smithlord creations, nor is he associated with their current projects.I just took my first step into the world of Star Wars repros and bought Stan Solo Creations' Droids C-3PO and K-3PO on ebay last night. I could only afford 2 figures and I was tempted to buy Droids C-3PO/R2-D2 or K-3PO/R3-A2 for the sake of having a pair/set. But I decided it was the 2 protocol droids I wanted most.
Question for anyone who has several of these repro figures: any difference in quality between Smith Lord Creations and Stan Solo Creations?
They both have made some of the same figures. I have my sights set on Yakface, Stormtrooper Han Solo, Droids R2-D2, POTF R2-D2, and R2-Q5, all of which have been made by both groups.
