Another Vintage Kenner Item: 2019 Calendar

There is an “interesting” calendar on Amazon which features vintage Kenner action figures. Similar to the Five Below poster we reported about recently, most of the figures are incomplete. What’s more, some have been placed in scenes that are screen-inaccurate. The makers of these products should probably check out our vintage Kenner archives for accuracy and inspiration. Anyway, check it out. Special thanks to JTA reader Jason S. for alerting us to this item.

We have a first look sneak peek for you of the exclusive The Vintage Collection Imperial TIE Fighter (with included Imperial TIE Fighter Pilot pack-in figure). I am not impressed, folks. There are a couple of issues here, but I am not even impressed with the packaging. It looks like a forced attempt to squeeze it into The Vintage Collection, instead of feeling like a natural addition that mimics the original release. The vehicle itself is quality, but the packaging has slightly warped the wings which is unacceptable at this stage of the game. It’s a significant repaint of the 2009 Legacy Collection Imperial TIE Fighter TARGET exclusive vehicle. Same features. Same scale. Same everything pretty much. The Imperial TIE Fighter Pilot is interesting. Firstly, it comes in a “Kenner baggie.” When was the last time we received a figure in a baggie from Hasbro? It’s a retool and repaint of the Lt. Oxixio (TIE Fighter Pilot) figure from the Toys R Us exclusive Battle Above Endor (1 of 2) set. (Remember those awesome multipacks?) This time, however, Hasbro has glued the head to the helmet. We no longer have a removable helmet option, and the clone portrait can no longer be seen. It’s also painted all black. This was the most opportune time to revisit this character with a better sculpt (I loathe this figure’s spindly legs without ankle articulation), and the big helmet and upper body make it obsolete at this point. Anyway, the full review is coming soon, but you can check out the whole photo gallery now.

OK, so the Doctor Aphra Comics Set was an interesting, albeit gimmicky reintroduction to the classic Kenner Special Action Figures Sets of yesteryear. Don’t get me wrong. I am thrilled to see this sub-line out once again, but it’s time to revisit the original sets’ legacy. During the initial run of The Vintage Collection, Hasbro produced many of them for collectors, and all were released as TARGET exclusives. However, we are still five sets short of the sixteen originally produced. Let’s find out what it would take to complete them for us shortly. Click through for more!
