Star Wars Collectible News, Photos, and Reviews

Tag Archives: Retro Collection

Hey! If you’re one of the cool collectors totally digging the new Retro Collection, don’t forget that Hasbro produced a phenomenal “Retro-styled” Boba Fett figure as part of the original run of The Vintage Collection. We’re certain Boba Fett is planned officially for the Retro Collection at some point, but why wait when you can get an awesome rocket-firing version right now? Special thanks to JTA Facebook reader Jeff Cole for the beautiful image and the reminder that this figure exists! 🙂 If you want Boba Fett (VCP03), check out the eBay listings for it HERE, if you can afford one that is! You can also see our RDR on this figure HERE as well.

As we told you, many TARGET locations set aside the new Hasbro Star Wars exclusive items in a special section away from toys for a quasi-Father’s Day type of display. See image below for the proof. As you know, the merchandise sold out almost immediately. There is good news as well as a silver lining. Just after selling out hours on May 12th, Gary H.’s store received a new shipment of Retro Collection figures. Other merchandise is expected soon as well. Keep the faith!

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!
