Hey Hasbro! Your art department has some work to do on the upcoming The ViIntage Collection Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight) figure. (Thank you for releasing this long-awaited figure by the way.) While we received this card art on the first edition Luke Skywalker (Endor Capture) figure from 2010, it’s nice to see everything corrected and in place for this ultimate release. However, there is ONE major error we’re hoping you can fix to help authenticate the original vintage Kenner release from 1983. To our readers, by comparing the thumbnail images below, can you see what differs between the two of them? If not, click through for the answer!

Amazon has pre-order pages up (no images yet!) For the 6 missing numbered figures from The Vintage Collection that were left out of the Toy Fair announcements (Power Droid is VC167, and Luke is VC175)! Pre-order links below! Thanks to JTA reader Craig for the alert!

UPDATE: We hope you got your orders in because Amazon has taken the pages down!

While NY Toy Fair was gut-wrenching and devastating to most, the announcement of the Lars homestead EG-6 Power Droid was such incredible news for me. I was so excited it was confirmed (it’s been hinted by my sources for over a year and a half now), that I didn’t care that Hasbro phoned it in for the rest of The Vintage Collection reveals. We’ve posted nearly half a dozen front-page articles whining and moaning how Hasbro has NEVER updated the vintage Kenner Power Droid figure in the modern line. It only took them years, but I could not be happier that the modern definitive modern update to the vintage Kenner Power Droid is finally here. (Be prepared for more whining and moaning for the few others yet to be made too in the near future.) (more….)

You’d think that after 25 years of owning the license rights to the Star Wars toy line that Hasbro would know characters like the Imperial Stormtroopers and Boba Fett need to be produced at extremely higher numbers than say, oh Lando Calrissian and Han Solo (Hoth). Hasbro/Walmart – the Retro Collection Boba Fett sold out in moments and everyone is mad and frustrated that we’re going through this once again. Please get Boba Fett solid case assortments made, and get this highly-requested and wanted action figure in stock again ASAP! This isn’t an issue with limiting quantities. Everyone should be able to order as many as he or she wants.

Hey TVC collectors! Is it possible that Lando Calrissian (Sandstorm Outfit) (VC89), Luke Skywalker (Hoth Outfit) (VC95), Darth Malgus (VC96) will be joining the all-new Episode 4 Power Droid? Entertainment Earth has redacted the names but left numbers either for misdirection, or they forgot to remove them! What do you think? Only one figure from the three makes sense.

We have a sneak peek for you on the next wave of The Vintage Collection. Check out Cara Dune (VC164), The Mandalorian (VC166) and the Remnant Stormtrooper (VC165). This is one solid wave, and one of Hasbro’s finest in a VERY long time. Cara Dune is excellent. She looks a little bit too much like Mandy Moore, but you probably won’t care. She comes with the dagger, but it’s permanently attached to her boot unfortunately. The Mandalorian is another excellent release. The paint operations look off in a few spots, but again, you need to have a discriminating eye to see the issues. The Remnant Stormtrooper is what it is, and that’s an excellent new version of the Rogue One Imperial Stormtrooper. Hasbro went cheap on the deco on the figure’s posterior. They should have pulled out all the stops and made the figure as filthy as possible. All figures come with 30 points of articulation. Anyway, reviews are coming very shortly, so check out the complete galleries and dioramic shots RIGHT NOW!
