ARF Trooper (CW10) - Hasbro - The Clone Wars [red] (2009)
Star Wars Collectible News, Photos, and Reviews

Author Archives: Paul

OK, fellow The Vintage Collection collectors. We have a question to pose to you, and we need your response. And we’re sure Hasbro wants to know as well. To date, there is an ever-increasing one-to-one relationship between what Hasbro offers in The Black Series 6-inch line to what they provide in The Vintage Collection 3.75-inch line. As of late, it feels like Hasbro is focusing on TVC and placing TBS6 on the back burner. However, there are varying interpretations of this assertion. That said, there is one sub-line of figures where a TVC counterpart doesn’t exist: the Credit Collection figures. It appears from the many comments in our reviews that collectors like their style and that they’re reminiscent of the original Marvel Star Wars comics characters. So let us ask the question. Are you interested in seeing Hasbro release a sub-line of “Credit Collection” action figures for The Mandalorian action figures in The Vintage Collection? Please add your two cents in the comments.

Review: Moff Gideon - TBS6 [CC] - Best Buy Exclusive

Review: The Armorer - TBS6 [CC] - GameStop Exclusive

The Vintage Collection The Mandalorian & Grogu (Maldo Kreis) Walmart exclusive set is visually the most horrifying thing we’ve seen for packaging to date in The Vintage Collection. But the contents inside are pretty awesome. It’s still overpriced and the value feels light. But what about those knobby white ice spiders? (more….)

The Vintage Collection Rebel Fleet Trooper “trooper builder” four-pack is INCREDIBLE. We get a true Lieutenant Pello Scrambas and a Captain Raymus Antilles. But there’s more! It’s astounding, but it’s also bittersweet! See why a set like this blows the stupid Stormtroopers set away! And see what Hasbro needs to do to continue on this fantastic trend. (more….)

Review: The Mythrol - TVC - VC225

The Vintage Collection The Mythrol is not everyone’s cup of tea, but still a good release for the line. But why did Hasbro release this character before so many others? (more….)

The Vintage Collection: The Ninety Six - The Wrap-Up

And it’s a wrap! It took us all year, but we got through Hasbro’s The Vintage Collection The Ninety Six action figures and provided our assessment on where we are for each one. Many of you have asked if we’d do a wrap-up. Well, we think it’s best if you provide your input in this article. Give your impressions on where we are with this line, and see how far we have yet to go before completion. We have a dedicated place on our website for The Ninety Six. Click HERE and you’ll find all 96 action figures. And if you hover over them, a GREEN border means we have an acceptable figure already in The Vintage Collection, and if you hover and the border turns RED, it means Hasbro has work to do! As Hasbro releases action figures, we will update this page. Thank you for your participation in this column. It’s been a blast!

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 Yak Face.

Review: Jyn Erso - TBS6 [P4] - RO01

Most of us needed a hole in our head before another Jyn Erso 6-inch figure, but this one is the one you should purchase for your collection. It’s the best we’ll ever get of this character from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. (more….)

We had such a phenomenal response with our first article that featured ideas for the Troop Builder sets that we decided to do a second one, with more ideas and suggestions from you! As you know, Hasbro opened the floodgates of what the new 4-pack Trooper Builder multipacks can offer. The possibilities are endless. The line is admittedly off to a great start with Stormtroopers, Rebel Fleet Troopers, and now Shoretroopers, but there are MANY other Trooper Builder sets they need to get out to the market. We’d thought we’d offer up our suggestions. But, please, once again, offer up your suggestions and feedback in the comments too! Click through for more from Part II. If you missed “Part I,” click HERE to check it out.

Hasbro has opened the possible floodgates of what they could bring forth in the new 4-pack Trooper Builder multipacks. The line is admittedly off to a great start with Stormtroopers, Rebel Fleet Troopers, and now Shoretroopers, but there are MANY other Trooper Builder sets they need to get out to the market. Also, they need to find a way to not limit these to two units per customer. That limitation defeats the whole point of a Trooper Builder concept. We thought we’d offer up our suggestions.
