YouTube Channel FXitinPost has released their very own reimagining and recreation of the duel on the Death Star between Obi-Wan and Darth Vader. While the original duel was quite static and short, this reimagined duel adds many new scenes and is more in line with what we saw in the prequels or in Rogue One. Some of the CGI  does look a bit wonky here and there (this is made by fans who don’t have the budget of ILM), but the overall result is quite impressive. How do you like this reimagined scene?

We have a sneak peek of the first wave of Retro Collection figures for you to see. I love these things. But what a shame that Hasbro didn’t launch this line for the 40th anniversary of Star Wars. I hope they take the line as far as possible. Droids, Ewoks, unproduced vintage Kenner figures are only the beginning. And I would LOVE to see 1985 The Power Of The Force figures added as well. Right now they’re exclusively available at TARGET beginning May 12th, but they will have more widespread availability later this year in the Fall. Check them out and leave your thought about them in our review pages!

Well, this is interesting. JTA reader bnicks87 sent me an image PROVING that the re-released TVC Darth Vader (VC08) figure has a running change. Our sample featured a two-piece removable helmet (dome/faceplate and collar), but bnicks87’s sample came with the original three-piece helmet. It looks as if only the earliest examples have the “Evolutions” helmet. Dang, it. I shouldn’t have opened mine.

So far, most Galaxy of Adventures shorts have been pulling from big screen canon. Their latest video, while not directly citing it as a source, seems to come straight from the Vader Down comic (mixed in with a reference to Rebels). Seeing it in animated action is pretty impressive!  Full Story

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!
