Got a loose POTJ Porkins the other day. Love that figure. He's my kind of X-wing pilot... I wonder if he was on the Rebellion weight management program? ha ha Because the US Air Force would NOT let him stay in with a body type like that.
RX-7 of Power of the Jedi 2001 line.
I went to Crowmag toys in Raleigh NC yesterday to plunder their loose $3 figures. I bought a dozen that I'm trying to ID since I can't go to the pool (there's thunderstorming outside) and I have ID'd one of the dozen...11 more to go...
I got a used loose POTJ Darth Vader - Masters of the Dark Side - recently and it just arrived. The seller promised the 'limbs were tight' but it seemed to be worded intentionally - the waist is a bit loose and the neck swivel is loose. The head feels like it wants to come off but is too tight to come off, but too lose to really stand at attention as Darth Vader. There's also something on his arm but I don't mind that. All that said, as far as Hasbro's contribution is concerned, a much better figure than I've been aware of. The head sculpt is beautiful and it has the best pose Hasbro's ever given Vader before he went SA. The cape's not perfect but it's not bad. Codpiece seems a little big though.
Guess I should've paid the extra for the TVC ANH Vader off the bat, or even the TAC one.
I picked up a loose Porkins figure for 50 cents, and I am surprised how much better the likeness is on this older figure, compared to the modern version from a few years ago, that only looks like Sansweet, lol.
Picked up a POTJ TIE Bomber today. Even Hoth like conditions didn't prevent me from picking this up! I like to grab the latest versions of vehicles. However with the Saga version it was essentially the same, the only difference being is some blast marks which I didn't like. Hasbro released one in 2010 but it was a gray paint job. I went with the POTJ version, which is the dark blue and more accurate color.
