New Target Planogram Relegates TVC to Just One Peg

My local target has just finished their action figure reset, and it is rather sorry. They had the new archive figures in stock (I let some sixer friends know). Unfortunately, the 3 pegs of Vintage Collection figures that were present before the reset are now relegated to just 1. Fellow Council of Collectors members, what can be done? Full Story

What's The Deal With The Vintage Collection's Packaging?

Well, If we’re all honest with ourselves, The Vintage Collection hasn’t gone the way most of us wanted it to go. This criticism is not intended to undercut the incredible work Steve Evans did with the Saelt-Marae and Klaatu (Skiff Guard) figures (and the rest of the newness he’s brought to the line). In my opinion, he should be allowed to retire with how beautiful they (and the rest) turned out from most 3.75″ super-articulated action figures. Photorealistic technology begins this year for human/humanoid 3.75” figures. (We already see some elements of this technology with the Resistance figures.) All of that is well and good. But when it comes to The Vintage Collection packaging, it appears we’re not forging ahead as much as we need. If you’re a loose collector, please move along as you’ll likely find this post pedantic.

Unpopular Opinion: Everything is Fine Here, How Are You?

Much doom and gloom has been spilled in the last few days it seems. It’s sad to hear of people leaving the hobby because they couldn’t find a figure at the store. They have their reasons, but I have to ask myself, “Is it really all that bad?” There are several reasons why I don’t think things are as bad as some of the more pessimistic views make it sound. Here’s what I mean… Full Story

When The Vintage Collection made its debut in August 2010 (the figures were found as early as June at some retail locations), Hasbro continued themed waves for the line, something that they started with The Saga Collection in December 2005. It impressed collectors that they managed this technique so well for so long. We imagine it was an arduous task and effort to release basic figures in this manner, but it helped keep things very organized in more ways than one. There were always a couple of exceptional figures here and there that Hasbro included in these waves that didn’t entirely fit the theme, but mostly these waves were sourced all from one Star Wars film or theme.

THESE ARE CUSTOMS by JTA reader Local Gotal who does a FANTASTIC job on them!  Imagine for a second if you will, that out of the blue Hasbro announced that the next wave of The Vintage Collection would look something like this. Would you ever believe it? And then imagine this case assortment free from the Sequel Trilogy characters and other repacks? Would you not order minimally five cases of these figures? This is what The Vintage Collection should mostly be about, and if Hasbro could make ONE SINGLE CASE OF FIGURES like this every now and again, it might shut us up for a while. Thank you for your consideration, Hasbro.

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!

The community saw a spike in sales when Hasbro announced that they decided to include an exclusive carded version of Yak Face in the Barge earlier this year. But when they revealed the price of the Imperial Combat Assault Tank, many members of the Star Wars collecting community cried out in horror over the steep price. However, they quickly followed up asking “does that price include a figure?” (more….)

What Makes a Good Wave?

The awesome Vintage Collection is just around the corner, and with it comes the prospect of new figures, the re-release of some we haven’t seen in quite some time, and a few we’ve seen pretty recently… To go along with Paul’s article, I wanted to offer up some additional thoughts. There is one thing in particular that will be essential in making sure we get through one wave to the next: case assortments.

What makes a good wave? Click through for some examples and be sure to leave your comments.
