Jar Jar Binks (VC108) - Hasbro - The Vintage Collection (2012)
Star Wars Collectible News, Photos, and Reviews

Tag Archives: 3.75″ Super-Articulated

No matter your level of understanding and acceptance about what Hasbro could and couldn’t show at the SDCC presentation, there was no way anyone could argue how disappointing it is. Most of us are knee-jerk complainers, and that’s something that probably won’t change until we’re dead. JTA reader Michael H. also was angry but decided to engage a Hasbro employee about the state of collecting and why they showed so little. This is all from JTA reader Michael’s perspective. We have no way to corroborate what was said, but we think it’s a fair overview of what transpired. Click through for more.

Do You Miss Him Yet? We Do!

I’ll just leave this right here. It seems fitting after today’s 2019 SDCC Hasbro presentation which may go down in history as the most-disappointing ever. Special thanks to Thomas for the graphics work.

Nothing new was revealed at the Hasbro SDCC Star Wars breakfast event, but Hasbro did show things like the Hyperreal Vader and newly revealed Sith Trooper, they also had the SDCC exlusive “Jedi Destiny” three pack on display. Here is a high resolution photo of the three figures in the pack. Let’s hope there will be individual releases later down the road.

Quick Pics! TVC Boba Fett (VC09) REISSUE

JTA reader Terminal Voracity graciously sent us in some quick pics of the reissued Boba Fett (VC09) figure. Sadly, this is another figure that needs to be retired and the mold broken. It’s terrible! But it does look as if Hasbro updated it as much as they could to make it relevant today. Check out the images below.

Review: Artoo-Detoo (R2-D2) - TVC - VC149

Here is another figure we should have fallen in love with but didn’t. Why is Artoo-Detoo (R2-D2) this filthy on a Star Wars card? Can anyone answer this? Please don’t deactivate Hasbro! The Vintage Collection has overworked their circuits. Someone needs to take Hasbro down to maintenance! See why you may be disappointed with this figure too in our Research Droids Reviews today!

Not Much Good Will In This Goodwill Auction!

As we reported, the “Father’s Day” exclusives at TARGET have been collected and gathered and sent to Goodwill stores. Now they’re showing up online in auctions. (Is the hobby really this difficult now?) Anyway, JTA reader Greg A. sends us a link where there is an auction of the removed products. Do you notice anything odd? Whoever did this should give up the hobby immediately.

Review: Luke Skywalker (Crait) - TVC - VC146

The latest wave of The Vintage Collection is a bit disappointing. So is Luke Skywalker (Crait) that’s part of it. Find out all the details you need for this figure, and make sure you look for Kylo Ren having a temper tantrum in the photo gallery. It’s the focus of our Research Droids Reviews today!

The Vintage Collection Wave 22: Lower Your Expectations

We’re almost done with the reviews, but you can check everything else out right now including a ton of comparison images, diorama shots and the new figures interacting with other figures and vehicles. I have to admit that The Vintage Collection wave 22 isn’t doing it for me. My favorite figure in the wave is the Imperial Assault Tank Commander, and that should NOT be the case. I am thrilled about finally getting a carded “12-Back” Artoo-Detoo (R2-D2) figure, but this character and card back were worthy of a completely all-new sculpt. Oh well. Luke Skywalker (Crait) is a decent release, but he is limited in movement thanks to constricting robes. His articulation system is almost voided out by it. And the Death Star Gunner should have been the crowning joy of the wave, but it has disappointed me hugely. Anyhow, check out the new images of the latest figures. Hopefully, the next wave will be a little bit better.

What's Going On With Darth Revan (VC150)?

So, what the heck happened to the 2007 re-released version of Darth Revan? Intended to be part of the 22nd wave of The Vintage Collection (the wave with Luke (Crait) and R2-D2), but now we know Darth Revan is not included. From the start, we made it clear that we were quite irritated that Hasbro decided to be this lazy and demanded that a character of such notoriety should receive an all-new KOTOR-accurate sculpt. Many of you felt similarly, about 12K of you, as well. If something isn’t going on with this figure, why wouldn’t Hasbro easily include a straight repack/slight repaint in this wave for more variety? Could something more be happening here? Or is it something simple like they can’t find the old tooling. I don’t believe the latter because they wouldn’t have announced the figure without checking that out first. And sorry if you don’t agree, but it’s egregious to include this figure in 2019. It’s an inferior sculpt, terribly-articulated, and inaccurate to the video game. No one should want any other type of a 3.75″ Darth Revan figure than a reduced 6″ version.

Wow. Look how much The Vintage Collection BT-1 is going for on eBay loose.

We have some great news to report. All of you who had your Walmart online orders canceled for the TVC Jabba’s Palace (Adventure Set) will have new hope. Although completely sold out with no plans for a restock, we’ve learned from some reliable sources that Walmart’s plans have changed for the better and they WILL replenish online stock. Also, Walmart is working very hard to remedy their ordering and stock logistics to make everything a smoother experience for collectors. At the moment, we don’t have an exact ETA on when that happens, but we expect it to run closer to when these units hit brick and mortar, which right now is “Fall.” If we receive more specific information, we’ll post an update. This release was Walmart’s fastest selling exclusive ever, and they’re excited what interest products from The Vintage Collection brings. More great things to come!
