Obi-Wan Kenobi (30 05) - Hasbro - 30th Anniversary Collection (2007)
Star Wars Collectible News, Photos, and Reviews

Tag Archives: 3.75″ Super-Articulated

The third time is the charm! Hasbro finally perfected The Vintage Collection General Lando Calrissian (VC47) figure. It might be the best-looking figure from this newest wave of repacks. Amazingly, they trimmed down the length of the cape, and it looks SO MUCH better. There are other updates too. We took the time to break it all down for you by producing an all-new 80-image gallery complete with comparison shots, dioramas, and a breakdown of what separates the 2011 version from the 2020 new release in the Collector Notes. These figures are shipping through the “Fan Channel” as we speak, but you can see this excellent figure updated in our RDRs now! There’s more difference here than you may realize. The Photo Real technology on this figure is astounding!

There are a number of changes made to the re-released The Vintage Collection Han Solo (Bespin) (VC50) figure. We took the time to break it all down for you by producing an all-new 80-image gallery complete with comparison shots, dioramas, and a breakdown of what separates the 2011 version from the 2020 new release in the Collector Notes. The breakdown is that this is the best version of this action figure to date. You’ll need MANY of them! You can probably find Han Solo (Bespin) (VC50) at your local TARGET and WALMART stores now. If not, orders should begin shipping to the “Fan Channel” shortly. As with many other re-released figures, there’s more difference here than you may think. The Photo Real technology worked well here.!

There have been a significant number of changes made to the re-released The Vintage Collection See-Threepio (C-3PO) (VC06) figure. We took the time to break it all down for you by producing an all-new 68-image gallery complete with comparison shots, dioramas, and a breakdown of what separates the 2010 version from the 2020 new release. (Hasbro has released this figure every five years since 2010!) You can probably find See-Threepio (C-3PO) (VC06) at your local TARGET and WALMART stores now. If not, orders should begin shipping from the “Fan Channel” shortly. As usual, there’s more difference here than you may believe, including a possible retooling that benefits the aesthetics of the head sculpt! Be sure to acclimate yourself to the many changes!

The supposed “Fan Channel-only” exclusive wave of The Vintage Collection repacked and updated with Photo Real figures including Luke Skywalker (Bespin) and See-Threepio (C-3PO), which already showed up at TARGET and weren’t supposed to, are now showing up at Walmart. We assume they weren’t supposed to show up at Walmart either. Expect them to get marked down to $5.00 per figure in a couple of weeks. Special thanks to JTA reader Chad R. for the report and image.

Do you want to know what sets the reissue of 2020’s TVC Boba Fett’s Slave I apart from the 2013 TVC Slave I (Boba Fett’s Spaceship) Amazon exclusive? A lot. We have completed a full 76-image gallery for you to peruse, updated the review and Collector Notes which outline all of the difference for you. We also kept the old gallery too. Hasbro did collectors a solid here. Check it out! By the way, we’re treating the re-release of this vehicle no differently than the TVC basic figures than also get reissued, so we’ve updated the original review from 2013 and added details separating the two releases. Leave your thoughts in the review’s comments!

JTA is in the #FightForTVC. Ignore the noise here and elsewhere. It’s important more than ever to now sign the petition, contact Hasbro, Walmart, TARGET, and other online retail and let them know you want to see more TVC. Let the campaign CONTINUE! #FightForTVC. JTA led the campaign for the relaunch of TVC, and it was successful as it came to fruition in 2017. We also organized a successful campaign for Jabba’s Sail Barge (“Bring On The Barge”) years ago. If we all successfully worked together to do that, we certainly can do it again to get the figures we want! Hasbro Pulse Instagram: HERE. Hasbro Pulse Facebook HERE. Hasbro Twitter: HERE.

A couple of days ago, online retailer Dorkside Toys dropped a bombshell of news in Rebelscum’s forums. There has been much debate over whether Hasbro is giving The Vintage Collection the attention it needs and deserves (spoiler: they’re not) and Dorkside Toys relays information that surprises and counters the echo chamber you hear elsewhere.

Entertainment Earth, a huge distributor of Hasbro Star Wars and a carrier of Hasbro Star Wars exclusives, posted an informal poll on their Facebook page. (The Vintage Collection or The Black Series?) The results, despite a small sampling so far, overwhelmingly lean one way, and probably not the way you think. Check it out. Hasbro should check it out too.

Please let Hasbro know via social media and email, respectfully, that you demand more for this classic collection of Star Wars action figures. Let the campaign begin! #FightForTVC. JTA led the campaign for the relaunch of TVC, and it was successful as it came to fruition in 2017.

This isn’t a rumor. This isn’t news. But man oh man, Hasbro seems ever unwavering in their stance that things WILL NOT improve as far as The Vintage Collection is concerned (from collectors’ perspectives). For me, it is disconcerting. (more….)

Hasbro, It's Time For An Answer To #wheresrex?

I don’t know about you, but I can’t take it anymore. Since 2013, Hasbro showed 3.75″ super-articulated collectors a stellar version of a Phase I Captain Rex. Then Attack Of The Clones 3D didn’t happen. Then Legacy Collection “2” was canceled, and Hasbro threw out this baby with the bathwater. For years, JTA and other fansites have asked, begged, and screamed at Hasbro about why they haven’t released this incredible action figure yet. Well, now it’s time. If Hasbro doesn’t release this figure NOW, they are a terrible company. The Clone Wars just ended, and we still don’t have this figure or an announcement of it. NOW IS THE TIME! Remember that ridiculous hashtag in 2015 (#wheresrey)? Let’s get is going again with one letter changed. The Vintage Collection collectors demand to know #wheresrex?

As you know, Hasbro Pulse will reveal news items today at 3 PM via outlets across the web. We thought it would be a fantastic time to keep Hasbro accountable to longtime The Vintage Collection collectors that they honor their recommitment to the Original Classic Kenner 96. Below we listed 15 characters we’re desperate to see realized in The Vintage Collection line, and especially the packaging. Is it possible Hasbro will announce any of these characters for us today?

Hasbro Pulse advertised a Star Wars Fan Event Day for tomorrow, March 31st a couple of days ago. New products will be revealed and that is confirmed. But do you think anything “new” besides what most of us pre-ordered on Amazon that they accidentally put up for pre-order on February 24th will be shown? Does anyone expect new 6″ figures to be revealed as well? So far, we know these five The Vintage Collection figures are coming. We have the orders to prove it.

Unless you’ve been sleeping under a rock, the biggest news to take away from NY International Toy Fair is that Hasbro has refocused their efforts to bring us what they’re calling the “Original Kenner 96.” (more….)
