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.

Vintage Collection Cara Dune Will Be VC164

Hasbro addressed the confusion surrounding the VC150 and VC164 figures in the Vintage Collection today on their panel at the MCM London Comic Con. As you already know Leia is definitely VC150 and only a few batches of her were made with the VC164 number. Now the question was what figure would be VC164 then or if fans had to wait a long time to find out. Hasbro revealed in London that the upcoming Cara Dune Vintage Collection figure will be VC164. So collectors will now have two VC164 figures in their collection, if they were able to get an early release of the Yavin Leia figure.

Vintage Collection VC150 Yavin Leia Found At Target

There was some initial confusion about the numbering for the new Vintage Collection Princess Leia Organa (Yavin) figure. While Hasbro had announced at NYCC that Leia would replace the cancelled Darth Revan figure and be VC150, the first batches of the figure showed her with a VC164 numbering. Now Anthony S. has come across a VC150 Leia at his local Target, so Hasbro did know what they were talking about after all. Will you get both the VC164 and VC150 version? Thanks to Anthony for the alert and photo!

A “Hasbro Star Wars Vin Huckleberry Hoodboat” has appeared in various Swiss online shops! The price ranges from 102.70 -119 Swiss Franks. So it could be a $80-$100 vehicle in the US. We know that “Huckleberry” is the code name for the Mandalorian show. The vehicle has been rumored for a while now, but the fact the TVC vehicle can now be found in several European online shops is certainly another good sign. It is unknown what vehicle exactly Hasbro will release, but the Razor Crest would be a logical choice here. Expect it to see the light of day in early 2020.

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!

Nothing new was revealed at the Hasbro SDCC Star Wars breakfast event, but Hasbro did show things like the Hyperreal Vader and newly revealed Sith Trooper, they also had the SDCC exlusive “Jedi Destiny” three pack on display. Here is a high resolution photo of the three figures in the pack. Let’s hope there will be individual releases later down the road.

TVC Combat Assault Tank Available At Target

JTA regular Matthew Cohen spotted the TVC Combat Assault Tank at a Target in Brooklyn today, sold at regular MSRP. Also in the store were a lot of TVC Stormtrooper Hans (much more of him than TBS Trash Compactor Luke). Anyone who didn’t get the Tank when it was discounted online and is still looking for it might want to check out their local Target!

The VC140 Rogue One Stormtrooper was my most anticipated figure of the year. Now that I have a few, it is my new favorite. I know some of our readers are on the fence about buying them since they are not “Original Trilogy specific,” but aren’t they? Let’s take a look at some of the reasons why you should buy a few (or a few more).

Show Us Your TVC Wave 6 Figures!

I’m seeing numerous reports of wave 6 showing up in people’s homes around the country. Did you pre-order wave 6 of The Vintage Collection? I just got 4 stormtroopers in the mail yesterday (from Amazon, and not a scalper price). Post a photo of your most recent hauls, especially if you got wave 6, in the comments of your new figures and where you ordered them from.

What Do You Want For Force Friday And Beyond?

We’re in somewhat of a lull at the moment. Most figures Hasbro have already finished are still under a Disney embargo and nothing official is known. We do know that on Triple Force Friday we will definitly get figures for The Rise of Skywalker, The Mandalorian and the Fallen Order video game. So let’s talk about what you expect, what you hope for and what you want! Both for TVC and TBS! And let’s speculate also if there will be any (Force Link) 3.75 in 5 POA figures at all, because so far there are exactly zero rumors about the latter. So click through for a discussion!

Even if she had only 10 seconds of screentime, I want that figure for TBS! (click for much larger version)

What Accessories Do We Need for TVC?

For some time, I have been rather disappointed with the lack of accessories that come with the 3.75″ premium lines. For example, Luke (Jedi Master) had a cloak if you count that as an accessory and nothing else, Walmart exclusive Lando was missing his blaster, the Praetorian Guard with only 1 head/weapon, etc. It seems that the days of extra accessories are gone, so what can be done? My personal favorite accessory set is the Endor Victory Accessory set. It came with the best trench coat ever. If Hasbro were to reintroduce accessory sets, what accessories would you like to see? Let us know in the comments!

TVC Stormtrooper on Amazon

For only $29+shipping through a third party seller… However I’m sure it will go on pre-order soon, so I recommend saving the page! Of note, Entertainment Earth is fluctuating between a May and June arrival, and some other sites show July, Amazon is not showing these to arrive till August. Somehow I find that more likely, but we shall see.

Why Are We Not More Distressed About This Major Issue?

Long legs may be attractive to men and women alike, but don’t let Hasbro distract you when it comes to updating action figures! Extra length in the leg area comes at a price apparently, and in this case, they disguised the cost of the extra plastic by completely omitting Lando’s blaster (or maybe they just forgot it). Perhaps he doesn’t have one in his movie costume, you say? Think again.

The Vintage Collection Darth Vader Photo-Real Confirmed!

This once European, and now US online, exclusive (?) is starting to show up overseas (Hong Kong). Our friends over at JediBusiness have posted some photos from Facebook detailing the wonderfully printed faces of these figures. One thing we weren’t sure about was whether Darth Vader received the photoreal treatment, but wonder no more! Find the answer here.

A lucky fellow by the name of Josh B. shared via instagram last night that their local Target stocked the pegs with the new Han Stormtrooper. The figure is supposed to have a street date of May 12th, so what witchery was used to purchase this, we can only guess. The face printing for Han looks quite wonderful, and notice the silver painted end-cap on the E-11 blaster (that very well may be a new/retooled mold). This figure was found in Orange County, CA.
