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 Snaggletooth.

Hasbro: First and foremost, THANK YOU for announcing that the long-awaited update to Bib Fortuna is finally coming in The Vintage Collection. It’s a quintessential character for the RETURN OF THE JEDI collection of characters in TVC. Previous Hasbro teams made it clear in the past that 2005’s TSC Bib Fortuna (SAGA 003) figure would be the last attempt on this character. Never say never! That said, we need to get this Bib Fortuna right, and the most important aspect of this figure will be its facial expression. Some characters and their action figures are “dependent” on a spectacular head sculpt, and Bib Fortuna is one of them. We should probably also talk about how Hasbro should address the rest of the figure as well. (more….)

JTA reader, friend, and customizer extraordinaire Alientek has put together a mock-up for us of what The Vintage Collection Republic Trooper (The Old Republic) (VC113) may look like for Hasbro to update it to current Lucasfilm standards. If they go this route, what do you think?

Mandalorian Season 3 Not Coming Before Late 2022

While Pedro Pascal himself only very recently confirmed once more that a Mandalorian season 3 is happening – check out the very interesting 31 minute talk between Ewan McGregor (fresh off the set of Kenobi, beard and all) and Pedro Pascal hosted by Variety on YouTube for more – no one really knows when the show will return. Collider however have learned a few things about the reason for the delay and when we can expect to see season 3 of The Mandalorian. Click through for more details!

He’ll be back!

What a coincidence! Just 90 days after The Vintage Collection Rebel Soldier (Echo Base Battle Gear) (VC68) figure topped our 25 Better Choices For The Vintage Collection’s Fan Channel Repack Case Assortments As Voted By JTA Readers poll, Hasbro announces it as a repack for the current line. You’re welcome? Whatever happened behind the scenes to influence this decision, it will be interesting to see what the new version looks like with Photo Real (and perhaps other changes too). It will be interesting to see if any other finalists get reissued too!

The announcement of a very first Black Series HasLab was certainly a surprise! Patrick would not reveal any details, of course, other than that the item will not be a vehicle! So what could it be? It more or less boils down to a creature and/or figures. Unless it’s a diorama piece / playset? So what would you like the very first Black Series HasLab to be? A Rancor? Jabba’s Palace playset? Or maybe a set of Cantina aliens? Leave your suggestions in the comments!

We’re receiving emails from readers asking us if we’ve sectioned off a place in our RDRs and VGs for the Lucasfilm 50 collection of Hasbro Star Wars action figures.

So, are you interested in guessing what Hasbro will be revealing for their I Am Your Father’s Day panel on Wednesday? Will they help me get closer to retirement with more The Ninety Six reveals (help us, Maker, you’re our only hope)? Will we see new Bad Batch 6-inch figures? Or will we see more new releases with that awful Lucasfilm 50th logo on them? Or will it be a whole bunch of nothing? Your thoughts in the comments, please!

Yawn. Boring. Didn’t we just get the Imperial Rocket Trooper? This one comes with less too. Yikes. Is The Black Series 6-inch line already feeling the pinch of expended tooling budgets? Hasbro didn’t even try with this one. (more….)
