Watch the Coolest Toy Ad Since the 80s!

Megalopolis toys posted an ad on their Facebook page about a week ago. It was just shared in the Vintage Collection group on Facebook by Jeffery H, so thanks to him for bringing it to our attention. This is why so many of us love The Vintage Collection! Click here to watch the video.

I had a pretty good week when it comes to collecting. I took a trip an hour south to Tucson, AZ, and went to a wonderful swap meet. Some of my favorite vendors had vamoosed, unfortunately, but there were still a couple toy vendors with decent Star Wars merchandise. I also watched A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi, which marks the first time my son has gotten to watch the original trilogy (although he’s 2 so he ran around for a lot of it and went to be 3/4ths of the way through each movie, but boy did he like R2-D2!). In any case, click here to see a few photos of this week’s collecting finds!

Toy Run Tuesday #21 - Dioramas and Nostalgia

We recently bought our first house, and finally I was able to get some shelf space to set up a couple dioramas. In addition, my mom brought over the rest of my stuff from her house (much to her relief and my wife’s chagrin). I also finished up a custom figure from The Mandalorian!

What TVC Playsets Would You Like to See From The Mandalorian?

There are 2 playsets that would be incredible additions to The Vintage Collection. One needs to be the Razorcrest, that much is clear, but the second might not be so obvious. I’ve taken some screenshots (not photos from my phone this time, yay!), and drew up a couple ideas for how these playsets could be brought to fruition. Click here to take a look!

Okay, so The Mandalorian has been out for a day now, and I wanted to talk action figures – specifically for The Vintage Collection. What characters would you like to see immortalized in 3.75 inches of plastic? The Mandalorian is already coming, so we won’t use him as a pick here, but click through for some photos and let us know in the comments who you’d like to see in TVC! Mild spoilers may be ahead…

Toy Run Tuesday #18 - Playtime

This week I didn’t add much to my collection, so instead I played with my toys! What else are they good for anyway? Looking at them?? My 2 year old son has fallen in love with my Starspeeder 1000 and has found all the buttons that make noise. He knows where the astromech droid fits and even how to open the doors (although that one scares me because he grabs the doors to pull them open the whole way…). Click through for some pictures of playtime this week in Star Wars!

Another fine Tuesday, fellow collectors! This week I only have one new item to share with you, but I had another topic for discussion.

In today’s issue of TRT, I would ask that you share any photos of your shelves you would be willing to share, and whether you bought them or built them. Much thanks in advance.

Clone Commandos For TVC and TBS Please?

This week, EA games announced (finally) that they would be adding instant action to Battlefront II. That’s the best part of the old Battlefront games in my humble opinion, so I’m extremely excited for the addition to the new games. Now I just need an Xbox One or a gaming PC….. Anyway. The other new addition to the game are Clone Commandos. With Clone Wars on its way next year on Disney+, it got me thinking: Hasbro really needs to make an all-new clone commando in TVC and TBS and re-use the heck out of it with different color schemes. Click through for a review on the clone commando figures we’ve gotten thus far!

The Black Series Sith Trooper Found in the US!

The regular release of the Rise of Skywalker Sith trooper has been found in the Disney Springs shopping center in Florida. Thanks to Darren V. from Facebook for the photo. It appears that it comes with two of the blasters that were in the SDCC exclusive release. I’m interested to see the card art for the Vintage Collection version. Will you be army building this trooper? Let us know in the comments!

Sail Barge Meets Skiff in This Glorious Toy Photo

I love toy photography. I follow about 20 pages on Instagram who regularly post new photos of toys from Star Wars, Marvel, DC, Hot Wheels, and more. I’m not sure as though I have seen a photo mirror a movie scene so accurately as this amazing work of art done by James R. Special thanks to him for letting me share his photo from Facebook. Another thanks to Steve Evans for signing off on such a beautiful design. Have you done any photography with your new skiffs? Show it off in the comments!
