Everything You Need To Know About The Vintage Collection Battle Droid (VC78) Re-release!

The Vintage Collection Battle Droid (VC78), part of the “worst reissue wave ever,” was a curious release back in 2012. It’s more curious today because it’s not the best 3.75″ super-articulated Episode I Battle Droid action figure from Hasbro. The best is still from the 2011 Star Wars [Shadow of The Dark Side] Episode I Blue-ray Commemorative Edition four-pack. The figure is well-made and designed but falls short of definitive status thanks to its inhibited movement, and inability to stow the E5 blaster rifle on the backpack. Hasbro did make improvements, however, including a uniform weathered paint job. But Hasbro also employed a less rigid plastic this time, so the parts feel rubbery in places. We took the time to break it all down for you by producing an all-new 76-image gallery complete with both versions (2012 and 2021) featured, comparison shots, and a breakdown of what separates the two releases in the Collector Notes. Check out this excellently updated figure in our RDRs now! There’s more difference here than you may realize.
