Anakin Skywalker (BD14) - Hasbro - Legacy Collection (2009)
Star Wars Collectible News, Photos, and Reviews


Oh man, Hasbro opened a can of worms with the newly revealed DROIDS Boba Fett, See-Threepio (C-3PO), and Artoo-Detoo (R2-D2) for The Vintage Collection. Not only have we pleaded for Hasbro to produce these for us in a 3.75-inch scale for years now, but we’ve also been working behind the scenes suggesting TVC product concepts with major retailers. We’re glad to see this brainstorm come to fruition. (more…)

I forewarned you to pick up The Original Trilogy Collection Lobot (OTC #20) figure because I knew Hasbro wouldn’t include the awesome accessories that came with the neo-classic figure. Get him now before he’s gone forever. You’re going to want that space-aged laptop and communicator, trust me.

Hasbro, we will give you proper congratulations for choosing the RAREST The Vintage Collection figure to re-release for us. But is there any way you could think outside of the box and go a step further? How much more would it have belabored you to include an alternate helmet of the 332nd Company (Ahsoka Tano’s Clone Trooper), so we can pair them with the glorious Ahsoka Tano (Mandalore) (VC202) figure you just released. Let us get this straight. We have The Black Series [Phase IV] version of this character and a 5-inch Galaxy Of Adventures version, but you can’t include a second helmet and give it to us in a 3.75-inch scale. You hurt us! We know “newness” to a figures counts as a new figure, but it would have been WORTH IT here. Oh, and please continue to pick candidates from JTA’s Top 25 Better Choices For The Repack Case Assortments poll.

Hasbro, there are some collectors who like the Lucasfilm 50th Anniversary The Power Of The Force “2” packaging. That’s fine. But if you must release figures in it, can you please get it right? Princess Leia (Ceremonial Outfit) (not “Yavin IV”) came in the final unique packaging of the Kenner/Hasbro The Power Of The Force “2” line, in “starburst” FlashBack and CommTech packaging, not the original red/green card backs. This version of Leia was also part of  “The Princess Leia Collection” but that was different packaging too. Are you familiar with the different original modern toy line looks? Do you perform the appropriate research? It’s probably too late to fix, but you should, at the very least, know the error of your ways.

Are you curious to know what’s under the helmet of The Vintage Collection Luke Skywalker (Endor) (VC198)? JTA reader and friend Alientek performed the surgery. Would you believe that Hasbro tooled hair on this figure? Why couldn’t they go “all the way” and include the helmet as a removable accessory? Ridiculous. See our full review and picture gallery and this figure’s wave HERE.

The Marvel HasLab Is Yet Another Huge Success!

The Black Series Rancor HasLab is about to be launched very soon and the general feeling among Star Wars collectors seems to amount to a mere shrug, it’s very much wait and see here. Meanwhile our dear Marvel friends have reason to celebrate today. Hasbro’s latest Marvel HasLab ended just moments ago. And it’s apparent that Marvel collectors have deep pockets and love their HasLabs. Galactus was off to a relatively modest start, only a week ago he had only about 14,000 backers. But as expected the past few days and hours gave Galactus a huge boost. In fact, Galactus has just become the most successful HasLab yet! Click through for more!

After my nausea subsided from being slapped in the face by boxes and boxes and boxes and boxes and boxes of Rey (Island Journey) action figures from three years ago, I became even more jaded by what else I found at Ollie’s. (more….)

Folks, The Vintage Collection is treading water, and this will be our lot in life until the line goes inactive again. We are now three years out from the Star Wars film that killed the franchise, was toxic to merchandising, and contained some of the most awful characters that ever made up a Star Wars trilogy. The dreaded The Last Jedi film products are STILL poisoning retail, and now clearance outlets are beginning to taste their toxicity. (more….)

We’re briskly approaching a gloomy landmark from the return of The Vintage Collection compared to its original run. The first The Vintage Collection run ran for three years? (mid-2010 to “some point in 2013”). The return of The Vintage Collection started April 2018, and “some point in 2021” would make it the three-year point again. So, I have to ask the question.
