At Toy Fair 2018, Hasbro said that The Vintage Collection “repack” was going to be internationally available to help those in the foreign markets get another chance at these figures. Then these figures quickly transitioned to an “online only” type of exclusive. Now, it appears that they are a general marketplace wave and part of the regular assortment number. JTA reader Alexander C. found them at his local Walmart. Now I’m worried. This wave of all reissued figures could play the same part in clogging future NEW shipments of figures from arriving at retail. I take back my suggestion of adding new “photorealistic” figures into the line now. This approach will only work against the flow of new figures. There is no doubt about it.
