Review: Resistance A-wing Fighter - SW [TLJ] - Vehicle

The Resistance A-wing Fighter (with Resistance Pilot Tallie) is a nice release. The best thing about it that there is no NERF to be found here at all. It also imitates old school Star Wars concept art. Find out more in our Research Droids Reviews today!

We know that there are THREE (3) waves of The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ line in 2017 from Force Friday II onward. Jaina Solo (Legends) and Resistance Tech Rose make up this third wave, but wouldn’t it be great if there was one more to round out the year? (more….)

We’re continuing our discussion about what figures Hasbro should probably focus on for The Vintage Collection. Our next topic up for discussion is The Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels. We’ve enlisted the help of famed customizer Peakob1 and his readership add their voices to come up with a great cast of options. So now, we want our readers to check out their suggestions and continue to add to the list of character ideas for this great and rich period of Star Wars. Remember, this great cast of characters would be figures done in realistic style for The Vintage Collection. Click through for more!

JTA reader and friend Sebastian E. was inspired to customize an Ugnaught action figure based on our description in the Collect All 92! post we did a few days ago. Look how awesome it looks. And to think Hasbro has this tooling available right now as we speak. This would make a fine real addition to The Vintage Collection! Again, this customized figure is made up of parts from 2009’s TLC Ugnaught (BD 43) and 2009’s LC Ugnaught (BD28) figures.

According to a new product listing on Amazon, it appears that the next wave of Star Wars [The Last Jedi] figures could have a release date as late as February 2018. This is strange because we heard that this wave should be right around the corner from arriving at retail. But who knows what’s really going on with distribution such a mess.Thanks to JTA reader Bryan L. for directing us to this listing.

Review: Kylo Ren (Throne Room) - TBS6 [P3] - Walmart Exclusive

We think that the expression “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts” doesn’t really apply to The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ Kylo Ren (Throne Room) Walmart exclusive. We think for many collectors that the individual parts are going to be more valuable instead. See what you’ll decide by checking out this figure in our Research Droids Reviews today!

There Is Another.... Hasbro TVC Roundtable Discussion To Read

Our good friends at BanthaSkull.com attended a different session of the Hasbro roundtable, so different topics on The Vintage Collection were discussed. Please check out their overview of the conversation and be sure to look for a slam at someone too.

You may or may not have noticed, but Anakin Skywalker has been conspicuously left out of our last Collect All 92! article for a very specific reason. There has been controversy surrounding what version of Anakin Skywalker the 1985 figure intended to represent. Was that figure supposed to be the Force Spirit as he appeared at the end of Return Of The Jedi, or was it an Expanded Universe “off screen” take of the character “in the flesh” that we never saw onscreen? Judging by the reference image on the POTF card back, it very clear to us that the figure is intended to be the Force Spirit. Either way, 1999’s POTF2 [FB/CT] Anakin Skywalker figure doesn’t represent a good modern update to the 1985 release. That being said, IF Hasbro ever updated this figure, would you prefer the Force Spirit approach taken with 2017’s TBS [P3] Obi-Wan Kenobi (Force Spirit) figure, or would you prefer a redo of the 1999 approach instead?

Hasbro: We've Distilled The Collect All 92! Figures For You

The Hasbro roundtable discussion, in my opinion, was a fruitful event. It got me inspired once again to figure out where we are with The Vintage Collection and where we need to go from an “old school/Original Trilogy” point of view. Please be patient, we will definitely be looking at the various sections of the Star Wars timeline individually so that a clearer and more focused discussion can be had. In the meantime, we have distilled where we stand with Hasbro updating the “Collect All 92!” original vintage Kenner figures in the modern line. This isn’t meant to be interpreted that Hasbro should “only do this” but instead a “when you focus on this, this is what should be considered.” We’re not alienating any group of collectors who want other types of figures. Those articles are forthcoming. To be clear, we will be doing similar articles for Prequel Trilogy, Sequel Trilogy and Expanded Universe characters in addition to other new canon including standalone films, Rebels and The Clone Wars. (more….)
