Star Wars Black Series - Unpackaged Empire Strikes Back Han

Here are the unpackaged photos of Bespin Han. I need to compare him to old man Han from The Force Awakens.

Here are the packaged photos.

Star Wars - Kenner - 12 Inch Han, Leia, and Lando

These have been in storage for a long time. With the new Solo movie, I thought I'd pull out the legendary characters at 12 inch scale. Kenner really did a nice job with these figures in the mid-90s and 2000s.

Build-A-Figure Apocalypse 1 vs 2

One of the latest Build-A-Figures from the newest Marvel Legends X-Men series is Apocalypse and he is the second BAF Apocalypse done by Marvel Legends. The first one came out way back in the original Toy Biz series 12. As you can see, the original is way bigger than this one. Kind of sad.

Hasbro Star Wars Black Series - Wave 19 - The New Standard

I don't know what happened during the Hasbro Star Wars team meeting that put together this wave of Black Series figures - but whatever was done, keep doing it. Instead of repacks and three figures being eaked out at a time, Wave 19 gave us seven new figures, and three of those were from the Original Trilogy.

I am also happy that four were from the Solo movie. Loved that movie and love that new product is still coming out, despite the reviews and continued fan backlash.

So this series gives us Val, L3, Patrol Trooper and Rio Durant. Great way to finish out the crew.

The original trilogy figures include Hoth Leia, Dengar, Lando in Skiff Guard disguise and a repack of Bespin Han, which is a great figure.  Dengar finishes out the Empire bounty hunters and the Skiff Lando adds to the Jabba diorama possibilities.

So feast your eyes and an absolutely outstanding wave by Hasbro. Well done. Well done.

Jurassic World Finds - Ian, Zia and Mercenary

Some of the hard to find Jurassic World figures are starting to make their way to store shelves. I managed to find the ever elusive Dr. Ian Malcolm. Also managed to snag Zia and the new Mercenary. Fun additions to the Jurassic World line up.

Jazwares Fortnite - Llama Pinata

As these are all selling out pretty fast, I am glad I had a chance to grab the Llama Pinata, which has the Rust Lord figure in it, as well as a bunch of weapons. I have no idea what the Llama does in the game, but hey, fun way to sell a bunch of accessories and another figure.

Jazwares Fortnite - Individual Figure Packs

Like I mentioned in my last post, no interest in the Fortnite game, but these figures really caught my eye. Great sculpting and great articulation.  These are the individually packed figures - Bandolier, Raptor, Carbide, Omega, and Teknique. Teknique was really hard to find though everything has been sold out since I first snagged these. I missed grabbing Drift. Will keep my eyes open.

They only come with picks and a piece of wall. Weapons can be found in the Llama pinata. Coming up next.
