It’s the ides of March, but we’ve got nothing but good news to share. Hasbro released the most-perfect item for all Star Wars collectors. It’s finally in our possessions now. And as if in almost perfect serendipity: today is our 3,583rd review. The “83” represents 1983, the year of Return Of The Jedi. And the “35” represents the number of years it took Hasbro to announce that they would make Jabba’s Sail Barge (The Khetanna) in The Vintage Collection from the release of the film (2018).

Behind the scenes, I calculate various statistics on what happens here on our site, just for curiosity. And I have to say you all impressed me. We had unprecedented first-day unique visits for The Vintage Collection wave 20. It seems all the hobby needs is a strong wave of Original Trilogy characters to get everyone excited again. Anyway, thank you for the astounding traffic, and we hope you keep checking back as we add more figures to this fantastic collection. If you missed checking out our larger-than-usual galleries of Saelt-Marae, Klaatu (Skiff Guard), Princess Leia Organa (Boushh) and Scarif Stormtrooper, please be sure to check them out!

UPDATE: I forgot to add an image that JTA reader and friend Binary_Sun put together. He took one of my images of Yak Face and Salacious Crumb and composited with a beautiful background. Check it out!
Saelt-Marae is the MOST-PERFECT action figure Hasbro has produced in a VERY LONG time. I am so blown away by this figure that I went above and beyond for you tonight. Firstly, the review is DONE. See why you’ll need MULTIPLES of this figure for your collection. Secondly, I was curious to see how Saelt-Marae compared to the many other Jabba’s Palace aliens Kenner and Hasbro produced throughout the years. So there are almost 50 ADDITIONAL images comparing Saelt-Marae (Yak Face) to other figures from Jabba’s Palace or the Battle of Carkoon. Please leave your thoughts in the comments in the review. I want to know what you think of this stunning figure! ENJOY!
It’s OUR 3500th RDR TODAY! Also, DON’T FORGET TO CLICK THE COIN! Come with us to check out the FINAL vintage Kenner figure. Yak Face defines what collectibility is, and is the ONLY Kenner figure to feature “hot pink” graphics to accent the card back art. Learn everything else you need to know about this elusive yet classic action figure. “The Final Countdown” is OVER! Find out more in our Research Droids Reviews today.
