Seems i like the Star Wars Centerpiece figures

When i hear the announcement about the “reboot” of the Star Wars Unleashed figures, this time under the Centerpiece brand.
Looking at the promotional image of Luke Skywalker in his flightsuit from Empire, lightsaber in hand stepping over the foot of a fallen AT-AT, i was reminded of how much i liked the Unleashed series back in the days, but ultimately let them go.

Jedinews.co.uk has photos from Toy Fair 2017 that shows how two of the Centerpiece figures look like combined with the regular six inch figures from The Black Series; and that ignited a sense of symphathy for them in my inner collector.

But with the onslaught of products that will be released due to the 40th anniversary of A New Hope and all the unknown things that will swim in on the tidal wave that is Episode VIII collectors like memight have to prioritize even more than we’re used to.

Let’s take a look at the stuff that will cover my corpse someday.

Lando Calrissian (3,75″ Black Series)

Another blind spot in my collection is filled! Lando’s cloak is one of the nicer ones, somehow i also dig the elastic band, but i deceided to take it off and keep him in his rebelion uniform look. While the face scuplt does not entierly resemble Billy Dee Williams i’m happy that he has his wrist communicator.



Tony Stark
(S.H. Figuarts)

Bandai is taking their game further with their face printing technology. This time with Robert Downey Jr.. The license costs are probably the reason why he doesn’t get any alternate faces but the look he comes with is a good all purpose expression. And there are three alternate hands for each arm as well as two armor lower arms and armor boots as well as a display stand resembling Tony Stark’s hall of armors.



Gardens Of Glass – Lando

It was receommended to me to help with my uneasiness with Moebius’s work.



At The Shore – Jim Campbell

Another recommendation. Jim Campbell adapted Over The Garden Wall for the comics page which i ennjoyed. So i decided to take a look at his work without being restraint by the rules of a franchise.

Shin Godzilla second form vinyl figure

Shin Godzilla second form vinyl figure

I love the evolution the king of monsters goes through in Toho’s latest movie and getting this stage completes my Shin Godzilla vinyl collection.
Prices for this figure are through the roof on the secondary market when i looked, but i set an alarm on CS-Toys[1] and got it for a justifiable price.

Black Series 6inch Sabine Wren

Black Series 6inch Sabine Wren

I wanted to quit on the six inch figures. Then Hasbro gave us Kanan and Ahsoka. Well, and now Sabine.

S.H. Figuarts K2SO

S.H. Figuarts K2SO

Everybody’s favourite droid (at the moment) from Bandai’s S.H. Figuarts line.

Omega Man tpb

Omega Men

Skipped the single issue run. But Tom King wrote it and because i was amazed by his work on the Vision i’m interested to see what he does with Kyle Rayner.

Jackie Kottwitz band 1

Jackie Kottwitz

A german volume of Jérôme K. Jérôme Bloche, a franco-belgian comic about an aspiring detective. Since the english edition is on its way to be released later this year i got a volume of the german translation. I’ve read a story ages ago and liked it but must have lost it during moving flats.

Buffalo Classic USB-Gamepad

Buffalo Classic USB-Gamepad
