Review: Captain Cassian Andor - TVC - VC130

While nice on a The Vintage Collection card back, Captain Cassian Andor needs more than repackaging to be an acceptable action figure. Learn more in our Research Droids Reviews today!

Sneak Peek! The Vintage Collection Range Trooper (VC128)

We have a sneak peek of The Vintage Collection Range Trooper (VC128) for you. The figure is the best iteration of the character in any scale. In my opinion, it blows away the color scheme of The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ figure. And it goes without saying that it is a world away from the satisfactory 5POA Force Link 2.0 version. Hasbro nailed the likeness of the figure perfectly, and the deco is a pure pleasure. The lines are super clean and free from any sloppily applied details. The articulation is better than I expected, but the inherent nature of the figure’s design prevents it from being the most “mobile” action figure Hasbro has ever produced. The most interesting detail here is the white gun. Both the 6″ figure and the 5POA figure come with black blasters, but Hasbro corrected the error with the TVC version. We should count ourselves fortunate. The figure is hitting in the USA as we speak, and collectors can barely process this since the case assortment hasn’t even gone up for pre-order yet. But Walmart (of all places) is the retailer receiving them. Truth is stranger than fiction!

How Can We Get TVC Far Away From Becoming TBS In TVC Packaging?

It feels like The Vintage Collection is getting sucked into The Black Series 3.75″ vacuum. In what we thought would undoubtedly be a triumphant return, The Vintage Collection is plagued by what some might describe as significant problems. (And those problems have few solutions at this point.). Before we itemize all of its problems, it’s important to note that the rebirth of the illustrious The Vintage Collection line is something no collector should take for granted. It was in and of itself a miracle. After Hasbro gave up on the 3.75” super-articulated line and threw it out like a baby in bathwater by giving to Walmart, it felt like some divine intervention was at play that inspired Hasbro to take another chance at this fan-favorite line.

Where The Vintage Collection Would Be If Things Were Different

JTA has recently discovered BREAKING NEWS from 2015 that never made our front page. To provide complete transparency for our readers, we’re releasing this news now. Please click through for a past update that might have changed the face of collecting for lovers of 3.75″ super-articulated Star Wars action figures (and perhaps added many new collectors into the fold too).

While there have been recent glimmers of hope with The Vintage Collection, collectors on average generally feel that the return of The Vintage Collection hasn’t met expectations. The overwhelming number of Sequel Trilogy straight repacks have sullied the line to the point of affecting distribution already. And the only strong seller is an Original Trilogy character from 2010 that consistently sells out long before any newer figures from the Sequel Trilogy. We thought about the whole situation more and put together a pecking order of the types of characters Hasbro should focus on (ranking them #1 through #10) to make a solid line of action figures that would mimic the Golden Age of Collecting approach. Click through and see if you agree. Let’s do our part to help Hasbro make The Vintage Collection the most excellent line it should be.

Is The Relationship Between Collectible Toys And Retail Over?

You’d have to have your head buried in the sand not to be aware of the discontent brought to fans of the Hasbro Star Wars Brand, most notably The Black Series 6″ line and The Vintage Collection line and its availability at retail (all types). To ask how we got here is something that requires time, debate and discussions that encompass a whole gamut of factors. And if we utilized all of these angles to form a proper understanding, we probably would continue to debate it. There are too many “bad” things going on these days. (more….)

BREAKING NEWS! TVC Rey (Island Journey) Finds A New Home + More

How is Walmart going to be the new “Toys R Us” when they can’t even get out a single Star Wars exclusive from Hasbro? Well, maybe they won’t be able to achieve this business goal. Or maybe something will drastically change with their protocols so it can become a possibility. We have learned something shocking about one of Walmart’s exclusives and received an update on another. The answer for a third exclusive is still in limbo, however. (more….)

Well, take this as anecdotal evidence, or with a grain of salt as you wish, but Rey (Island Journey) is NEVER reaching Walmart stores until one major thing transpires…. like getting her UPC into their computers. This leaves even less hope for the TVC Stormtrooper (Mimban) figure too. A JTA reader who asked to remain anonymous performed an investigation and found out some disturbing news. I can reveal this. I showed him the post from Steve at Hasbro saying the Rey figures shipped months ago. I then showed him screenshots I took of the figure on eBay. Most importantly, a picture of the UPC. He looked it up and said it was not even in their system. I asked him to elaborate, and he basically said without a number they recognize, it will never be moved to the stores. Is anyone else over this complete cluster of a mess? This is retailing basics, and Hasbro’s most significant retail partner is squandering the line right before our eyes. It’s maddening at this point. Hasbro, please read this. Is there anything you can do to help?

Robot Kingdom Finds Rare Hasbro Comic Packs In Warehouse!

Wow! Robot Kingdom did some warehouse cleaning and found some 2010-era Legacy Collection Comic Packs in stock. These included some of the finest figures Hasbro has ever brought collectors. It’s amazing to me how much many of these fantastic Comic Packs sets go for today on eBay. When the starting asking price exceeds $500 on some, you know that Hasbro created gold back in the day. Ah, the good ‘ole days.

Hasbro's Top 50 Greatest The Clone Wars Figures (2008-2013)

I don’t know about you, but I am ecstatic that The Clone Wars is back. I wasn’t a fan back when the movie released in 2008. In fact, it wasn’t until Hasbro’s 2010/2011 The Clone Wars [Shadow Of The Dark Side] line was released that I started developing my affection for the show. Did you catch that? HASBRO’S TOY LINE is what was responsible for piquing my interest in the show. Don’t you wish a toy line could interest you today as it did back then? (more….)
