The Vintage Collection Darth Vader Photo-Real Confirmed!

This once European, and now US online, exclusive (?) is starting to show up overseas (Hong Kong). Our friends over at JediBusiness have posted some photos from Facebook detailing the wonderfully printed faces of these figures. One thing we weren’t sure about was whether Darth Vader received the photoreal treatment, but wonder no more! Find the answer here.

The new The Vintage Collection “repacks” are on TARGET’s website too. Remember, all of the human-faced figures are updated with “photorealistic” technology. Currently, all figures are sold out. Eagle-eyed collectors will notice that the names on 75% of these changed from their original release in 2010. Click any image below to be taken to that figure’s product page. Special thanks to JTA reader Mark for the alert!

UPDATE: Hyper Real Darth Vader Only $49.99 On Amazon!

Yeah, even Amazon thinks $79.99 is ridiculous for a Hasbro figure. They’ve listed the Hyper Real Darth Vader for $49.99 with Prime. Hurry! Thanks to Cybereye for the alert!

UPDATE: Hyper Real Darth Vader is now $79.99! They must have been alerted to their mistake!

European Exclusive TVC Repacks up for Pre-Order

Darkside Toys has listed the European Exclusive wave of Vintage Collection repacks for pre-order. I’ve been including these in my overall list of TVC figures being released this year, but perhaps that skewed the results a little since they are European exclusives. No images of carded samples of these figures (or the 41st Clone Trooper) have been spotted as far as I know, so hopefully we’ll see them at NY Toy Fair. If you live in a European country and missed out on these figures, here is your opportunity to get them!

Review: Jedi Training Academy - STAR TOURS

Here is a blast from the past, and an item we recently realized we never got to add to our RDRs yet. Check out the Jedi Training Academy from the Hasbro-produced STAR TOURS line. It’s a nice set and gives us a generic human male Jedi Master that can be used to represent the many unidentified Jedi Knights during the Battle of Geonosis. You also get three Jedi Padawans and Darth Vader in this set too. Learn more and see if you can secure this RARE set today by checking it out in our Research Droids Reviews today!

May The 12-Backs Be With You

We have just completed our intense look at the first series of vintage Kenner Star Wars figures: the 12-Backs. Because May is typically a Star Wars month and 2018 is the 40th anniversary that vintage Kenner Star Wars figures arrived at retail, we felt it was the perfect time to start vintage Kenner reviews. (Oh, and let us not forget The Vintage Collection’s return is another huge motivator of this run too.) Each new month, we will focus on a new series of figures where we’ll finish the complete vintage Kenner run in December with the 1985 The Power Of The Force line. Already, they are receiving wonderful feedback and tons of you are checking them out. But we want more of your stories, so please leave them in our comments. Thanks for your participation thus far, and we hope more of you leave your vintage Kenner experiences with us in the comments going forward! Thank you for making this a success for us. We put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into them and we were hoping that they’d go over well with our readers. They seem to have. And for that we’re grateful.

Review: Darth Vader - SW - Vintage Kenner

Here he is! He’s the whole purpose for the stories told in the Prequel Trilogy and Original Trilogy. And no villain-turned-hero will ever come close. In toy form, he started out as the vintage Kenner Darth Vader figure. And this figure in incapable of losing its charm. Check out this figure in our Research Droids Reviews and be sure to add to the conversation. Reminisce your own childhood stories of this figure in our comments.
