Hasbro: We've Distilled The Collect All 92! Figures For You

The Hasbro roundtable discussion, in my opinion, was a fruitful event. It got me inspired once again to figure out where we are with The Vintage Collection and where we need to go from an “old school/Original Trilogy” point of view. Please be patient, we will definitely be looking at the various sections of the Star Wars timeline individually so that a clearer and more focused discussion can be had. In the meantime, we have distilled where we stand with Hasbro updating the “Collect All 92!” original vintage Kenner figures in the modern line. This isn’t meant to be interpreted that Hasbro should “only do this” but instead a “when you focus on this, this is what should be considered.” We’re not alienating any group of collectors who want other types of figures. Those articles are forthcoming. To be clear, we will be doing similar articles for Prequel Trilogy, Sequel Trilogy and Expanded Universe characters in addition to other new canon including standalone films, Rebels and The Clone Wars. (more….)

For the original Kenner era, we have referenced our very own 2013 Almost Done, So Give Us Some Vintage Versus Modern Analysis Special Report, and have updated some of the information contained within it to be more relevant for today. Funko has GREAT success with itching their collectors with anything from the vintage Kenner era, so we want Hasbro to do the same for super-articulated 3.75″ collectors. If you have anything of relevance to add to this, please it to our comments. Hasbro is reading and this information will also be forwarded to them.

 

Vintage Kenner Figures That Still Need Modern Counterparts:

Sim Aloo (1985)
Power Droid (1979)
Bespin Security Guard (mustache) (1980)
Sy Snootles (1984) (puppet version – maybe just redo the entire band as an exclusive in TVC packaging)
Death Squad Commander (gray outfit and headset with cord) – this figure will probably never happen….
