Review: Greedo - TBS [L50] - Amazon Exclusive

The Black Series 6″ Lucasfilm 50th Anniversary Greedo isn’t accurate to the on-screen character of Greedo, but it’s not accurate to the vintage Kenner Greedo either! (more….)

This week’s episode of The Bad Batch is rather dark.  And surprisingly brutal. So there’s plenty to talk about! Click through for my spoiler review of “Replacements” and let’s discuss the latest episode of The Bad Batch!

The Black Series 6″ collectors are getting it all. Now Hasbro opened up the old Expanded Universe “comic packs” for them for the Lucasfilm 50th Anniversary sub-line. Sigh. Do they even know who these characters are? Let’s look at the shirtless Darth Maul (Sith Apprentice) figure. Rey certainly wouldn’t approve of this figure. (more….)

Welcome to another entry in our The Vintage Collection: The Ninety Six column. Hasbro recently made a commitment to collectors that they will be “focusing” on characters in The Vintage Collection that fall under “The Ninety Six” banner. If you’re new to this, it means that for every classic Kenner figure, there needs a modern counterpart. Between 2020 and 2021, Hasbro’s made an admirable effort by focusing on these characters. But there is more work to be done and we’ll figure out where we are step by step.

We’re right in alignment with Hasbro in our vintage Kenner database. There are 21 figures under the STAR WARS banner, 29 figures under THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK banner, 31 figures under the RETURN OF THE JEDI banner, and 15 figures under THE POWER OF THE FORCE banner. (Sy Snootles, Max Rebo, Droopy McCool, and Blue Snaggletooth brings the number to an even 100 figures.)

Read our assessment, and then be sure to add your thoughts into the comments. Let us know if you agree or disagree. If you’re a customizer, show us your custom definitive figure in the comments as well! Who knows? It might give Hasbro some ideas.

The Services Archaeology and Heritage Association Facebook page posted an excellent image of the world’s oldest action figure. It’s a 1,500-year-old Ceramic Maya figurine with REMOVABLE HELMET, from El Perú-Waka’, Petén, Guatemala. If only The Vintage Collection’s Luke Skywalker (Endor) from the year 2021 had the same state-of-the-art update included.

We’re about a year and a half out from the Retro Collection Return Of The Jedi figures, so that means that Hasbro is planning the assortment as we speak.

Let us know in the comments! If you need some help recalling the original Kenner RETURN OF THE JEDI figures, click HERE.

At the end of “Aftermath”, the Bad Batch set a course for J-19, the location of planet Saleucami, a place we last saw in The Clone Wars season 2. So it’s time to meet an old friend! But the episode also tackles an issue central to the show, is it ok for a young child to be with a bunch of deserted soldiers who are on the run from the Empire? Click through for my spoiler review of “Cut And Run” and let’s discuss the latest Bad Batch episode!
