Welcome to another entry in our The Vintage Collection: The Ninety Six column. Hasbro recently committed 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 there needs a modern counterpart for every classic Kenner figure. 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. Today we assess 4-LOM.

Marcia Lucas Really Doesn't Like The Sequels

A book about the Star Wars producer Howard Kazanjian titled Howard Kazanjian: A Producer’s Life by late author J.W. Rinzler was released posthumously last week. For the book Rinzler also interviewed Marcia Lucas, who won an Oscar for her editing work on A New Hope. She was very instrumental back in the 1970s to make the original Star Wars the movie we all love. She also worked on the other two original trilogy movies, but her work was uncredited. In the new Rinzler book Marcia Lucas doesn’t mince words when it comes to the sequel trilogy. She outright says that neither Kennedy nor Abrams “get the magic of Star Wars”.

Rumor: Quantic Dream Is Developing A Star Wars Game

Quantic “Who”, you may ask. Quantic Dream is a French video game studio known for story driven games like Detroit: Become Human, Indigo Prophecy (aka Fahrenheit), Heavy Rain and Beyond Two Souls. According to gaming website DualShockers Quantic Dream has been working on a yet unannounced Star Wars game for the past 18 months. With how long the production cycle for these kind of games is the game may not see the light of day for another two or three years.
Would you like a Star Wars game in the mold of Detroit: Become Human, i.e. in the style of an interactive movie with various elaborate set pieces? Quantic Dream games are usually not very action driven and what action there is is usually handled via quicktime events, so I wouldn’t expect lots of lightsaber duels, but a game which has a heavy focus on the narrative with various branching storylines that can result in very different outcomes. Since EA made very little with their exclusive Star Wars license it will certainly be welcome when the franchise will soon get a wide variety of games, from a KOTOR remake to a sequel to Jedi: Fallen Order and now possibly even a Star Wars game with a heavy focus on the story by Quantic Dream.

Update: According to Kotaku’s sources the Quantic Dream Star Wars game may not follow at all the mold of previous Quantic Dream games and could instead be open world and more action focused!

Toy Run Tuesday #111 - Star Wars Currency

Hello Toy Runners! This week I got the last of my preorders in the mail. I ended up with a case of Purge troopers, and 2 of each of the Ahsoka wave. It was a pretty great week. Along with those, I received an order of in-galaxy currency to add to my collection of various Star Wars monies. I don’t have the kind of cash flow it takes to collect high end prop replicas of sabers and blasters, but metal money is a relatively inexpensive way to get into the prop side of Star Wars collecting. Check out my additions by clicking here…

After getting a dozen destroyed Princess Leia (Endor) figures from Walmart online, I have to admit that this is a sight for sore eyes. However, I found them on the bottom shelf nowhere near the Star Wars section. Why do things have to be this way?

Knights Of The Old Republic Remake Announced!

Rumors circulated for quite a while, but now it’s official, the legendary Knights Of The Old Republic video game will get a remake. Sony announced at their Playstation showcase that Aspyr Entertainment, Sony Interactive Entertainment and Lucasfilm Games are developing an extensive remake of the video game which was first released in 2003. Not many details were provided, but it was announced the game will be remade from the ground up and that it won’t just be the same old game with updated graphics, the game will also get new features, but Sony promises that the integrity of the story and characters will be mantained. This is certainly the way to go, while KOTOR was a fantastic game for its time its game mechanics are very dated and a mere graphics upgrade would certainly not be enough for a new generation of players who never played KOTOR before.
No release date was given, the game is still in early development. In my opinion a late 2023 release date would make sense, in time for the 20th anniversary of the original release. The game will be a Playstation 5 exclusive at launch, a PC version will be launched at a later date, probably a few months later, if KOTOR will have a similar release schedule like games as Days Gone or Death Stranding which were console exclusives at launch as well and launched on PC a couple of months later.
Are you excited about the KOTOR remake? Also, dear Hasbro, you now have plenty of time to release all new KOTOR figures (i.e. not lazy repaints) just in time for the video game launch!

The Return of Battle Packs: Wishlists

We were floored by the announcement of the Stormtrooper build-up pack yesterday. Hasbro let us know that they plan to continue with releases in that format, which begs the obvious question… What battle packs do you want to see next? The stormtrooper set is a great place to start, but this new option provides so many opportunities that we’d be remiss if we didn’t talk about some of those possibilities.
