Really not too sure about this one. Looks like a teddy bear wearing a rubber ring! Maybe of the band around the body was done in a 160Q it may look better. I won't be using this one!

JABBA THE HUTT

Not so sure this design is close enough to the original Jabba The Hutt to make it usable in the real world. The body and tail are fine just not overly sure about the head. The construction is very similar to many of the other characters in this collection. Not one for me i'm afraid.

KYLO REN

I only know the original Star Wars characters and so I haven't a clue who this is. This design is quick to make with simple artwork. Like a lot of these characters they look better in real life than in a photo.

FIRST ORDER STORM TROOPER

This design is actually very nice. The 160Q black eye band coupled with the black pen underneath makes for an overall good effect. Again the construction is very similar to the other designs and this is quick to make. Good for line work. I think without the red pen marks it would just be an original storm trooper.

I like this.

SUMMARY

I would class this collection as a mixed bag. Some of the designs are really very good and ideal for mounting on a party cup or headband whereas some of the designs really aren't strong enough for the real world (in my opinion - they may work for you!). With some of the designs being very similar in construction I feel the price of $35 is excessive compared to some of the other collections on the market. A $20 price tag would represent better value for money and a fair price.

$35 would buy you Cutie Dolls, Rumble Trucks, Matt Falloon OCD or Masks - so think carefully.

If you disagree with my summary then please feel free to post your views :-)

Thanks for your kind words. It is nice to know these reviews are helpful. At least with these reviews you can choose carefully how to spend your budget.

If there are any reviews you would like to see just let me know.
