Holy smokes. It’s somewhat astounding how far Hasbro comes with each successive release of Ahsoka Tano. With the release of The Vintage Collection’s Ahsoka Tano (Corvus) (VC222) figure, a comparison between this figure and the original 2012 TVC Ahsoka (VC102) figure is reminiscent of comparing a POTF2 figure versus a TVC figure. There might be a bit of hyperbole in that assessment. Still, hopefully, the takeaway is that Hasbro made significant strides in developing The Vintage Collection line within the last decade. The new Ahsoka Tano (Corvus) figure is a miniature The Black Series 6-inch figure, almost literally, and every last detail is here and ideally captured, in our opinion. Hasbro often excels when they put the effort forth, and Ahsoka Tano (Corvus) shows collectors, once again, what they can accomplish in the standard 3.75-inch collector scale. Based on the character’s appearance in The Mandalorian, Ahsoka Tano (Corvus) comes beautifully sculpted with a gorgeous paint job and accessories that will likely disappoint you. But it would help if you rest easy knowing that this is one of the best figures for 2022.

Ahsoka Tano (Corvus) is a mostly all-new figure representing the third iteration of the character released in The Vintage Collection. Have you noticed that Hasbro is releasing new characters into the line in multiple scales closer together and many others at a 1:1 ratio to make the buying playing field fairer? We have this version of Ahsoka Tano in The Black Series [Phase IV] line, the Retro Collection line, and now The Vintage Collection line. Each version has its charm, pros, and cons, but each satisfies a niche in the market. However, we feel that The Vintage Collection release is the best. Ahsoka Tano is connected to The Mandalorian storyline by way of Bo-Katan Kryze. And their interactions on the small screen enthralled fans of the show. It’s excellent to have them all together in The Vintage Collection now. Hasbro worked in an astounding 30 points of articulation into Ahsoka Tano (Corvus), and they did a fantastic job hiding many of the figure’s joints, especially in the knees. The technology afforded them is doing wonders for the figures. They are capable of producing brilliant figures in this scale!

The paint operations on Ahsoka Tano (Corvus) are especially impressive. We can’t recall a better example of Ahsoka Tano with cleaner lines and natural color tones than this release. We’re pretty impressed with what Hasbro accomplished here. If you take note of the deco on the horns, you’ll notice they’ve never looked better. Hasbro got a little artistic with the pattern this time around. Ahsoka Tano (Corvus) falls a tad short with the accessories. Hasbro only included a fully lit lightsaber and shoto. They omitted the hilts, and that’s a major disappointment for us. We should probably be used to this now; after all, 2021’s TVC Ahsoka Tano (Mandalore) (VC202) didn’t come with hilts either. Also, for reasons unknown, they made the blades transparent. They don’t have the slightest white tone, which isn’t screen-accurate. But it’s a minor setback for the quality placed elsewhere within this action figure release. The card art is beautiful and also matches the Retro Collection release. Hasbro also seems to make positive strides with the packaging, for now. But that will undoubtedly change for the worse too.
