Imperial Combat Assault Tank - Hasbro - The Vintage Collection (2018)
Star Wars Collectible News, Photos, and Reviews

Tag Archives: Battle Of Hoth

If you think that the updated “photorealistic” technology is the only thing that sets apart the 2019 version of Princess Leia Organa (Hoth) (VC02) from the original 2010 release, you’re in for some surprises. Almost a full decade sets the figures apart from each other, and there is more you need to know.

Princess Leia Organa (Hoth) (VC02) is another popular review in our RDRs. We’ve spent hours updating the Photo Gallery (which now sports 60 images and a wealth of comparison shots), updating text and new Editor’s and Collector Notes and now Packaging Variations! These reviews are updated to educate you on all the newness this figure brings to the table. Click the image below for the full experience! Make sure you’re aware of all of the changes!

OK, let’s get this party started! The reviews are coming soon, but you can check out crisp images of The Black Series Archives wave 1 figures right now in our RDRs. Most importantly, we have comparison pictures for each figure so you can decide which version of the figure looks better. Here is a quick rundown: Luke Skywalker is better, but not perfect. For one reason or another, the photorealistic paint job looks amateur at best, almost as if it’s a trial run. He doesn’t come with a beautiful application like recent figures. Boba Fett is much-improved. They finally updated his chest armor to the correct color. Amen, Hasbro! Bossk is almost identical to his first issue. But it’s nice to see him again. In all honesty, IG-88 is a significant step backward. He’s still feather-light, has too many holes in his head (that don’t need to be carried forward in the action figure), and got a pretty bad paint job this time around. What’s up with all of that gold? The reviews are coming soon, but check out everything else right now.
