Review: Solo: A Star Wars Story Force Link 2.0 Wave Two

Hello Hero Club this is Darkon633 and I am back with another toy review. The second wave of the Force Link 2.0 figures have an okay assortment of figures, however it is lacking the character selection based on actual characters from Solo: A Star Wars Story. That being said the new figures included in the second wave are alright. Supreme Leader Snoke is pretty much just a repack from the one released in the BB-8 Playset, however it is nice to see Hasbro give an option for those who didn’t…

Review: Star Wars 3.75 Inch Force Link 2.0 Darth Maul & Qui-gon Jinn

Hello Hero Club, this is Darkon633 and I am back with another review. The Force Link 2.0 Darth Maul & Qui-gon 2 pack in the Solo: A Star Wars Story toyline is a mixed bag in my opinion. The designs themselves may have looked good on paper, however I personally think the execution wasn’t the best. Darth Maul is clearly the weaker of the two figures even though I do like the variety of accessories it includes. The figure itself isn’t the best mold we have received in the 3.75 Inch…
