  1. It's Wednesday and you know what that means... ToyFarce review! This week, we're having a look at the new wave of Star Wars helmets from Lego, which includes The Mandalorian, Luke Skywalker's X-Wing pilot helmet and the Dark Trooper! I have really been enjoying that line of helmets from Lego. It's the perfect compromise between having a Lego set to build and having a nice bust to display. Some translate into Lego form better than others (looking at you, Iron man helmet...), but that wave is all killer, no filler! These are pretty fun builds which take about 2h to build, quick and easy. Each helmet has 4-5 bags of Lego pieces. First, everyone's favorite Mandalorian, with his beskar helmet. This was basically a slightly simple version of the Boba Fett one from the first wave, since the Boba Fett has the extra articulated antenna. This was the simplest one to build out of the 3. It has a few shiny pieces which makes it look great. Luke's X-Wing pilot helmet is my favorite of this wave, since I did not expect it. It was also a fun build, it has lots of details and it looks very good. The orange glasses are transparent, and there's even the chin strap and tiny microphone. A few stickers that were, as usual, not fun to apply (you only have one chance!), but most of the prints were already on the pieces. Definitely looks great on the shelf! The Dark Trooper is the only one of this wave that is an exclusive, only available at the Lego store/Lego's website. I was afraid it wouldn't look great, since, like the Tie Fighter pilot helmet, it's a lot of black Lego pieces, and might just look like a black Lego pieces blob. It turns out the Dark Trooper translates very well in Lego form! The red eyes and all the shapes and details look really nice on it. More news at 11:00... I can bring you in warm, or I can bring you in Lego pieces.
  2. "New recipe! Now with 25% more air!". This is what seems to be the trend the toy brands have adopted recently. We cannot pinpoint exactly when it started, since there are always been large boxes full of air, but the Black Series Return of the Jedi Deluxe Boba Fett figure seems to be the one a lot of collectors remember... Toy companies are now using what we'll call the "bag of chips approach": A packaging in which there's a lot more air, and a lot less chips (or action figure, in that case). Figures that would fit in a normal sized packaging are now sold at a premium in a bigger box, with the accessories more spread, with a 'deluxe' sticker slapped on them. Do you get more action figure? Not really... Here is a recent example: See how those 2 Boba Fett figures have the exact same accessories? One fits in a normal Star Wars: The Black Series box, the other one is Deluxe. With the cape folded in the box, King Grayskull would have perfectly fit in a normal box, too. You'd think that, at least, the MOC/MIB collectors would be happy about getting more packaging, right? Well... think again! The MOCC (Mint On Card Confederation) sent a statement to ToyFarce mentioning that bigger boxes means less space on the shelves for display, so no, they are not happy about the change (even if it does give them more box to cherish). "If the companies continue to make the packaging of our toys bigger, we will run out of space faster and won't be able to buy more!" Here's what the future might hold for us, by @chaztheguru We will keep you inform as the boxes keep getting larger! After an excellent idea sent by @darkfigtory on instagram. Give him a follow! More news at 11:00... but BIGGER! *ToyFarce News is parody news for laughs and not meant to be taken seriously!
