JABBA THE HUTT, SLAVE LEIA & SALACIOUS CRUMB 3-PACK will be heading to a Walmart near you! This amazing pack will hopefully be out for Force Friday and it will join the current pack on the shelves; Sandtrooper and Dewback. This set should retail for around 20 to 30 depending on location. Funko is killing it with the Star Wars POP's and this will make the second Slave Leia in POP form.
Funko is re-releasing some retired Star Wars POP's and this is a great thing for collectors! Did you miss the first release of Slave Leia? If so you are getting another shot at this collectible. The first POP re-released is Luke Jedi so in reality, you need this one! Read on for more!
Once in a blue moon we like to feature some art work here on the site. Before Needless went up, Facebook was our primary outlet and we have featured some killer work there. I came across this one while scrolling through my news feed and I had to post it. Shane Glines does some incredible
As promised, the next one up for review is Slave leia! Like i mentioned before she seems to be the odd ball in this assortment. All the other figures represents A New Hope and well, she does not. I know it's minor and trust me, I am thankful Hasbro gave us this one early. Still, maybe a traditional Leia would have been more fitting for this wave. Now moving on, the figure itself is gorgeous. Hasbro went all in on this one and you can definitely see the fine details in the figure. The cloth is exceptionally nice and well done. The facial sculpt is what you expect and it too, is good! I know it can be tough to sculpt this character but the design team did a fantastic job. She sports some killer articulation and I did not see any thing hindering the articulation. The only other thing I would have done differently was add a real metal chain instead of the plastic one. Overall, this is one heck of a release and I really like this figure. My rating for this one is 4 1/2 out of 5! Thanks goes out again to Hasbro for giving us such a cool figure! Keep it up!
So you purchased the inaugural wave of the Star Wars Black 6" series AND you scored the SDCC Boba Fett, what now? As far as retail goes I am seeing very little left for the 6" series. I am assuming sales have been brisk and fan excitement is high for this line. Some might be wondering when the next wave is due and I can answer that for you! Coming this November we will get: Slave Leia Han Solo Greedo Boba Fett
Once again we are featuring Ivy Cosplay. This time she is sporting the Slave Leia outfit and I must say wow! Just like last time, we take no credit for the pictures and we only want to illustrate the awesomeness that flows from this girl. We at Needless Essentials support cosplayers 100% and we will continue to do so. Sometime next year we will be launching our own studio, Needless Essentials Photo and we cannot wait. Till then make sure you stop on by Ivy's page and say hi. Just remember to keep it clean and respectful.
