The Newest Wave Of The Vintage Collection Revealed!

Site swblackseries.de also reveals the next wave of The Vintage Collection that contains the previously revealed Boba Fett and Liea (Bespin Escape). They’ve included Snaggletooth as part of the assortment. Let’s hope it’s an all-new figure based on the character from the Holiday Special, and not the oneincluded in the Special Action figure et!. ALso new to the assortment is Greef Karga and The Child.

Yesterday, after expressing personal joy and elation for the announced all-new Return Of The Jedi Boba Fett, I posted an article suggesting Hasbro relook at the packaging to make it more authentic to the original Kenner card back. A few readers took the article, which focused on encouraging Hasbro to make the artwork better, out of context, and interpreted it as complaining. So, in return, they complained about “perceived” complaining. If they read the article, they’d see the relevance of it. Thankfully, someone did. JTA reader and friend Binary_Son, famous for creating our “Back The Barge” campaign posters, whipped up how he sees the Return Of The Jedi Boba Fett card art in minutes. And it’s already worlds better than Hasbro’s version shown yesterday. You can see how important it is NOT to zoom in on Boba Fett and correct the “pill” and “Backer” colors. And let’s not forget about the unobstructed sawed-off blaster rifle or the darker blue sky. All of these elements are crucial. In his rough example, the lower body would still need some work, but hopefully, you’ll catch the drift of what Hasbro should be giving us. Thanks, Binary_Son!

OK, Hasbro. Firstly, thank you for doing right by collectors of The Vintage Collection. Today’s announcement was LONG OVERDUE, but at least it’s here now. Secondly, since you’ve confirmed this figure’s release, it’s now time to talk about that card back. You should have time to remedy the multiple issues that plague it and get it to your art department to fix it. Click through for more.

Is The Galaxy Of Adventures Action Figure Line Already Dead?

After several Hasbro livestreams and a flurry of announcements in the past few months one line has been conspicously absent from these events: Galaxy of Adventures. So is the 5 inch action figure line based on the animated shorts on YouTube already dead? What does that mean for the future of Star Wars collecting? Click through for some general thoughts and a a discussion.

Today’s Fan First Friday concentrated on the HasLab Razor Crest development. The most interesting tidbits:

  • The Child’s pram will come vac metalized – a HasLab exclusive
  • Patrick quote: “Carbonite blocks would be an interesting item for the future”
  • At least 1 more unlock is forthcoming and will be announced next week (carbonite blocks?)

Most of the video concentrated on showing off the in-hand gray model prototype. You can see the entire video here. No other new announcements were made.

Now this is a very weird find. A photo of a super articulated Return of the Jedi Boba Fett action figure made by Diamond Select Toys has appeared online. The figure was found at a Disney Park / Hotel. It is not a fake as far as I can tell. The figure seems to be in the 6 inch / 7 inch scale (difficult to tell without a reference for size, but DST usually makes 7 inch figures), comes with two extra hands and some effects pieces for the blaster and jetpack.

TBS6 [P4] Cad Bane With Todo 360: Another Exclusive Disaster

So much for the parameters in place to prevent bots from ordering. The Cad Bane with Todo 360 sold out in minutes before most people even logged onto the site. I hope more are on the horizon. Hasbro, produce enough of these things so it no longer benefits the aftermarket. Collecting has always had scalpers, but never like this.

What is the goal and purpose of Hasbro’s crowdfunding platform HasLab? To give fans the opportunity to get items that could never succeed at retail? That is the basic idea. But is HasLab really just that? A platform that gives hardcore collectors things they would never get otherwise? Or is HasLab something else entirely? I believe HasLab is evolving into something very different from what it is intended to be. Why? Click through for a  discussion!

That’s what Hasbro is saying

TVC Fives Is A Little Short For An ARC Trooper!

Just when you thought there was nothing else to complain about with Hasbro, another irritating thing rears its ugly head. The Vintage Collection ARC Trooper Fives, now arriving from AMazon and still unofficially announced by Hasbro, is notably out of scale with the rest of the Clone Trooper/Commanders in the line. That means the dreadful upcoming TVC Captain Rex will tower over this figure because that’s the tallest clone sculpt of all! Special thanks to JTA reader John C. for the news and image!

HasLab TVC "The Child" Unlock Will Come Carded

The 2nd stretch goal for the Razor Crest was just revealed. And it’s none other than Baby Yoda aka The Child! He comes with his 2nd crib he had towards the end of season 1! In his left hand Baby Yoda is holding his favorite toy in the world, the metal knob from the control lever. Which was absent from the cockpit renders. How do you like that stretch goal? Also, do you think Baby Yoda might also see a single release (with his first crib) later in 2021? You can back the Razor Crest here to get Baby Yoda in TVC!

HasLab Razor Crest Reaches 8000 - First Stretch Goal Unlocked

With 8000 backers we are now getting (what we should have already gotten) the first stretch goal featuring an escape pod. Let’s hope when they finally reveal the next stretch goal it will be something a bit more exciting! Have you backed it yet?

What Will The 2nd Stretch Goal Be For The Razor Crest?

The Razor Crest is 352 backers short of reaching 8,000 backers, which means two things: the escape pod is greenlit and the 2nd stretch goal should be revealed in the next few hours, probably when people in North America wake up again. Now the big question is, what will that 2nd stretch goal be? Could it be a Baby Yoda figure? Prisoners in carbonite? A flight stand? A second escape pod? Or maybe some lights for the cockpit and cargo bay? What is your guess? Also, at the pace the Razor Crest gets backers the question is if maybe an ultimate 3rd stretch goal will be added once 10,000 have been reached. Or do you think two stretch goals is all the Razor Crest will get? Also: the first person to guess the 2nd stretch goal wins the internet for today! So leave your guess in the comments!

The 2nd stretch goal should be revealed on Tuesday

Where Is That Refocused Attention For The Kenner 96, Hasbro?

This past February, the biggest news from NY International Toy Fair was that Hasbro refocused their efforts to bring us what they’re calling the original “Kenner 96.” They even made a slide describing this new “initiative.” They launched this new effort with the Power Droid. It was the first figure announced to fall under this criterion. (more….)

Hasbro, it’s time to execute Order Darth Revan (VC150) on the latest repacks for The Vintage Collection. The Battle Droid isn’t a terrible inclusion, but two of the others included made up the Great TPM 3D Debacle of 2012. Another was part of a wave that bottlenecked distribution in early 2011 (Anakin Skywalker), and lastly, a figure that’s needed an all-new sculpt since 2008 (the TIE Fighter Pilot) is perhaps the worst of the foursome. This wave is a no-win situation. Please do better. Here are some ideas: General Grievous. Rebel Trooper (Echo Base). Shae Vizla. Clone Trooper (501st Legion- the rarest TVC figures from the original run). Kit Fisto. Jango Fett. Grand Moff Tarkin. Luke Skywalker (Dagobah Landing). ARC Trooper Commander. Starkiller. Weequay. Emperor’s Royal Guard. There are SO MANY OTHERS that should have come before these four.

Escape Pod Add-On Revealed As The First Razor Crest Stretch Goal

Now that the Razor Crest is officially backed, the HasLab page has revealed the first stretch goal (8000 backers needed) to be an escape pod add-on.

Tags: , ,

The HasLab The Vintage Collection Razor Crest is fully funded as of 5:35 PM ET! That’s quite a success. It was backed in just over 24 hours. Is that a HasLab record? Congratulations to all who participated in this HasLab project. The first bonus unlock is an “escape pod add-on” feature, perhaps the worst unlocked bonus ever?
