- Figure Dimension: 6W x 4.5L x 20.5H in cm
- Wooden stand: 6.5 cm
- Worldwide Limited Edition: 25pcs
"When designing, the first thing that comes to my mind is how to present the characters with a new twist, giving them a new breath of design, (while still) maintaining my style, and yet people will still recognize (the characters). This is the main challenge for me. Second to that, are the coloring issues…" - shared WanKok.

(Above) GOLDEN DROID
- Figure Dimension: 8.5W x 3.5L x 22.5H in cm
- Wooden stand: 6.5 cm
- Worldwide Limited Edition: 25pcs
"…For instance, the Golden Droid. It poses some difficulties because of it’s “gold” color. To capture the right kind of gold is not easy. I have tried different approaches of painting, tested with various brands of Gold colors. Adding to the challenge is the weathering effect on him. (I had never intended) to have him looking "shiny and brand new". I want him to look a bit (worn-out).

On the designing aspect - as you can see - the abdoment of Golden Droid. Instead of plain wires going around, I had purposely made them look like “intestines”. I like gory stuff :)"
- revealed WanKok.


(Above) LONG EAR
- Figure Dimension: 5W x 6.5L x 18H in cm
- Wooden stand: 6.5 cm
- Worldwide Limited Edition: 25pcs

(Above) MERCENARY HUNTER
- Figure Dimension: 6W x 4.5L x 23H in cm
- Wooden stand: 6.5 cm
- Worldwide Limited Edition: 25pcs
"The main challenge this time is different from Golden Droid. It is the issue of proportion. The very first design is very different from what you see now. I disliked the initial design and scrapped the whole sculpture. The proportion just did not click with my taste. I changed the head, making it way smaller and elongated the body. I dressed him with a cape covering half his shoulder, all the way back. With the cape flowing, it has a feel of a "monk" hunter." - shared WanKok Leong of 1000Tentacles

Finn’s hand-blaster in the coming “The Last Jedi” instagrammed for everyone to post about LOL (thanks to lrmonline.com for the headsup) in this continued overage of the “Star Wars” film, not longer after their Vanity Fair shoot too!

Scroll down for full video clip of the gun - no doubt to be a “toy” (if ever “they” are still selling guns in the toy-aisle, or at the very least a hands-on-reference for eventual cosplay adaptation (innit?) - and for a peek at the Vanity Fair cover, featuring “Poe”!

Proud owner of Finn's blaster ! Thanks to @riancjohnson !

Star Wars Force Awakens Toy Designer Mark Boudreaux


Mark Boudreaux has been designing Star Wars toys ever since the first film came out in 1977. He has made every toy version of the Millennium Falcon, including the newest iteration to accompany Episode 7, The Force Awakens. (video by: Drew Beebe, David Yim, Amy Marino).

Having spotted this video on Facebook just yesterday, this is “fresh” to me, even though this video is dated 2015! No doubt the “success” of any toy line, ANY toy line, is it’s “longevity” regardless of “time”, IMHO :)
