TVC Luke Skywalker (Yavin) (VC151) Parts Clarification

I made a couple of mistakes on the Luke Skywalker (Yavin) figure’s recipe. So, I wanted to clear that up here. Firstly, the figure is indeed a retool of 2013’s TBS [P1] Luke Skywalker (#05) figure. But the head sculpt (and hairpiece), forearms AND hands are all new parts. I initially believed they were the same hands of the Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight) figure from the Luke Skywalker Jedi Destiny set, but those hands are ball-jointed, and Luke Skywalker (Yavin)’s hands are swivel. I wanted to make that detail clear. They look to be based on each other, but they’re definitely different. If you haven’t seen our review on this figure, please check it out HERE.

Time Capsule: TVC Figure Questions For A Future Generation

Let’s enter fantasy land for a few moments. If given the opportunity, what would you ask the 2010-2013 Hasbro Star Wars Team about The Vintage Collection that you never got answered? What irritating features on figures never got updated that still bug you today? What TVC figures do you feel need to be re-released to meet collector demand? Do you still want VC66 and VC67 made available to those who missed out? Do you have any questions on why a specific figure was approached the way it was instead of another way? Whatever your inquiry or complaint, please leave it in the comments. Be sure also to reference the figure you’re talking about with its VC number, otherwise, we might not know.

NEW FIGURE! It’s time to check out the brand new The Vintage Collection Luke Skywalker (Yavin) (VC151) figure. It’s beautiful! And it will probably be the last time we’ll ever see this figure made.

TVC Luke Skywalker (Yavin) NOW ON eBay!

ALSO! The figure is on eBay if you want one! Special thanks to JTA reader Kesh for THAT alert!

UPDATE: I messaged the eBay seller asking about the ankles, and he said he doesn’t see any ankle articulation added “but it’s hard to tell while in the packaging.” So, it doesn’t look like that detail was updated, sadly.

The Luke Skywalker (Yavin) listing that showed up on Walmart a couple of weeks ago is now visually confirmed thanks to Instagram. And it’s clearly not a straight repack as assumed by some collectors. Check it out! Thanks to JTA reader Ruari W. for the alert! Also, it’s definitely some type of retailer exclusive as evidenced by the assortment number. As Ruari and I both noticed, it looks like Hasbro is correcting their sin of placing the subtitle to the right of the figure’s name to underneath of it like it should. I am glad we whined about that now. Let’s hope they’re consistent with this fix! Original image from Tim at Bossk’s Bounty.

"Hasta La Vista!" To The Vintage Collection!

OK, perhaps “Hasta la vista!” is a BIT of an exaggeration, but what’s going on at retail when it comes to The Vintage Collection? TARGET has nothing beyond wave 1. And every Walmart near me has flat out removed it from the microscopic Star Wars section it maintains, which currently just has cheap roleplay lightsabers and Solo-era TBS6 figures.  Clearly, The Black Series 6″ is faring no better. Yes, we’re gearing up for Triple Force Friday, so we’re likely in a transitional stage, but how can collectors vote with their wallets if there is nothing out there to purchase and support? Goodness, gracious me.

Special Action Figure Set (Luke Skywalker Jedi Destiny Set)

It’s quite astounding how much joy toys from the Original Trilogy bring longtime collectors. I have two-thirds of the figures from the Special 3 Action Figures set already, but what a joy it was to see them in The Vintage Collection packaging. You don’t get the same response from other Star Wars toys across the saga. Anyway, Vedain (Skiff Pilot) utilizes two other The Vintage Collection figures with new parts, and Hasbro was VERY CLEVER how they did it. I almost didn’t notice the reused parts at first. And the two repacks have been repainted. This set also gives us numbers VC152, VC153 and VC154 in the collection’s sequencing. Another incredible hit, I can’t wait for more packs like this in the future. This is another gem in The Vintage Collection. Check out the gallery early RIGHT NOW!
