A Thank You To Darth Rage Reviews -An Addition to For’s Family

Hello Every body and especially to Darth Rage. Now viewers may not know who Darth Rage is or know anything about his Star Wars content channels Darth Rage Reviews but I have been following Rage for quite some time and now and then would comment on his videos. Rage is “Your source for the Force” and discusses and demonstrates all things Star Wars and lightsaber related. He also does lightsaber spinning, posting regular videos on Facebook and TikTok as well as YouTube. Rage also has cosplaying videos and “quick change short videos” too. His YouTube channel has been growing with rising subscriber numbers. To celebrate this Rage has held “Giveaway Draws” when he reached 800, 950 and 1000 subscribers….you just had to like, comment and publicly subscribe to his YT channel to enter. I was subbed, and I just commented on numerous videos and then the Force looked kindly upon me and well this happened…

Yes I won, and the sound of tiny little feet I mentioned was the feet of my own little Babu Frik! I was amazed as I was just browsing YouTube on the day of the draw when, with 2 minutes to go before it happened I got a notification pop up. So I clicked to watch and support just as Rage drew my name out! As such I want to thank him, but just typing this doesn’t seem enough so I thought I’d try something….new….

I hope I didn’t shock too many of you, I admit I am not a natural YouTuber and was nervous but I managed to stammer my thanks out – even with the uninvited “guests” 😂. I was so pleased when Babu arrived that I wasn’t thinking straight and forgot to demonstrate him talking but keep reading and I’ll include a bonus video of “Babu Quotes” down below.

I would like to ask you to check out Darth Rage’s media platforms and channels, he truly is a great member of the Lightsaber and Star Wars community – and went above and beyond to make sure Babu got to me. Here are the links to his content!

Ok it’s time to listen in and see if Babu seems happy in his new home….

He really is a quality toy and very chatty. He is also inquisitive and soon found my stash of sabers…

Babu has really settled in and will have a good home in For Tyeth Towers. And that just about wraps up my thank you to Darth Rage. I hope you will support him in any way you can and I wish him continued success – and I’ll be along for the ride. I only have to thank you all for your support and for checking this post out left to do, you are all very much appreciated, whether a new visitor or a regular….thank you. Oh and I have a new sign off I want to try….Till next time, I am For Tyeth….the FOR in the Force!

Qui-Gon Jinn Hasbro 50th Lucasfilm Black Series Figure – FT’s Review

Hello Everybody, today I have a slightly shorter post than normal and it is one that I have been meaning to post for about a month but I had quite a few sabers already scheduled before I could publish this one. And today we enter the world of Collectible Action Figurines and in this case the Hasbro Star Wars Black Series. Now in a recent batch of new characters there was one that stood out and caught my attention…and I kinda wanted one. The figure was of course the new 50th Anniversary of Lucasfilm release of Qui-Gon Jinn because I am a big QGJ fan (if you hadn’t guessed!). The figure seemed to me to be expensive because I don’t earn a lot designing sabers but I finally convinced myself I had to get one. The reason being that the figure was SO accurate and looked just like Liam/Qui. Here are a couple of product shots…

The detail on this figure is amazing – beyond amazing. So much so that my camera phone couldn’t handle the awesomeness and glitched hence the reason I am using Hasbro’s pictures. However believe me that my figure I received is just as impressive and exactly as in the promos. It is fully articulated at the neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, it has double folding knee joints as well as hip and foot/ankle rotation. You can position him in any pose – including the famous kneeling meditation position from the Duel Of Fates scene. The figure comes with a lightsaber with a detachable blade so you can clip the hilt to Qui-Gon’s belt (via a small peg on the hilt which presses into a socket on the belt). Unfortunately this figure doesn’t have a robe but I am going to get a third party one off ETSY I think. But I really can’t fault this figure and it came within a week of ordering it!

So as you can see my camera phone glitched and went haywire, blurring the pictures I had taken 😞. But from these two pics you can see how well it was packaged and how nice the blister pack and card look. It has the “vintage” The Phantom Menace branding with Darth Maul’s image in the corner and a “Lucasfilm 50th Anniversary” insert. Now I just had ONE big problem…I sooo wanted to be able to open the figure and really get a good look at him so, yep you guessed it I went and purchased a second which for me is a huge investment for a “toy”. Anyhoo I ordered a second and it too was perfectly delivered and equally awesome. And this time whilst opening the figure’s packaging I decided to try and get a picture of the new head sculpt which everyone was raving about how good it looked….and something weird happened. Take a look at these next two pictures and you’ll see…

This is how accurate the figure’s head and face is…but did you see the anomaly? Just check the first image again and tell me who that is! The Force is strong with this one!

So to sum up this shortened post I would definitely say these figures were worth the price. I am so happy to have my fave Jedi in my collection (actually I do have two 3.75in Qui-Gon figures but they aren’t quite up to comparison to the Black Series 6in versions). However those 3.75 Qui-Gons were a birthday present Mrs Tyeth got me a few years ago so I cherish all of them.

And look at these figures, Darth Maul vs For Ty – er, Qui-Gon Jinn!

That wraps up this post and I hope you enjoyed what I was able to show you all. Again this figure is superb and has got me thinking about adding a few more Black Series to my collection when I can afford it. Thanks for checking this out and please call back for future posts where I will have more new saber designs including a hilt for the first ever recognised Sith Lords and I’m working on a few Mandalorian designs oh and more LEGO models. I appreciate all your support whether you’re a newcomer or a regular visitor….Till Next Time…..
