Tag Archives: 3.75″ Super-Articulated

It is time to become more active and show Hasbro that there is support and love for the 3.75″ line. Let’s no longer wait for Hasbro to announce the product but get involved! Kenner started it all in the 70s with the 3.75″ line, and this is still what most fans want to collect. However, we see a lot of re-issues, but there could be done a lot more to keep capturing the magic of Star Wars and keep collecting alive.

Rogue One is one of the fans’ favorite movies but didn’t see too much love yet in terms of products. General Merrick participated in the Alliance’s acquisition of the Galactic Empire’s plans to their ultimate weapon, the Death Star, in the Battle of Scarif, flying as leader of Blue Squadron in a T-65B X-Wing Starfighter.

The blue squadron is missing in the lineup of Hasbro’s X-Wings. Show your support and sign this petition to have Hasbro produce Merrick and his X-Wing in The Vintage Collection line. Hasbro should produce Merrick in The Vintage Collection packaging, and they should either include him carded with the X-Wing as they did with Jabba’s Palace, or produce both separately boxed and carded.

May the Force be with us.

If you’re interested, tunghori has listed the TVC Princess Leia Organa (Yavin) figure loose. If you’re not into the packaging variants but only want the new head sculpt and arms, then this might be your best option. The figure has been a bit difficult to find at retail at the moment. Special thanks to friend and JTA reader Mark for the alert! P.S. tunghori ALSO has listed the Leia Organa (Sandstorm Outfit) figure loose too!

With all of the crazy Black Friday and Cyber Monday hoopla, it appears many of you missed out or didn’t know about the TVC Luke Skywalker (Yavin) Walmart exclusive figure for $6.99. It’s still that price if you’re interested. Thanks to all who wrote in reminding us that this deal probably didn’t make it out there fully.

Hasbro, you have treated 6″ collectors very well with the four-decade celebration of 1977’s Star Wars: A New Hope. The collection of vintage Kenner-inspired card backs was an interesting take for The Black Series line, but it worked out well because collectors bought them up. Sadly, you provided 3.75″ super-articulated collectors with a paltry line of 3.75″ Titanium figures that were both terrible and a slap in the face. So, can we ask you to do something special for us for 2020, please? (more….)

I wasn’t entirely sure if I was going to post another article like this, because honestly, what else should we expect at this point? But the reports are pouring in that collectors are receiving DESTROYED samples of the Amazon exclusive “Armory” Sith Trooper. Here is an example from JTA reader Garo K. Hopefully, you’ve had a more pleasant experience with this exclusive. As someone who ordered five, I can assure you they arrived without any issue at all. (They also arrived in a box)

Wow. Hasbro DESTROYED the aesthetics of the classic Kenner card back with the Amazon exclusive “Armory Pack” Sith Trooper. They also broke format in the numbering system by giving this figure the designation of VC162A. Thank goodness the figure is awesome! See everything in our Research Droids Reviews today!

Here’s the review! It’s a crying shame where The Vintage Collection is at today. The Special Action Figure Set (Cave Of Evil) isn’t the worst thing Hasbro’s done, but it’s like the manifestation of salt in the wound. See the sixteen-image reenactment of Luke’s Jedi training on Dagobah using the vintage Kenner Dagobah playset in our Photo Gallery! Find out more in our Research Droids Reviews today!

I am trying my best not to have an aneurysm after learning today’s news that Hasbro is re-releasing the plain white infantry Clone Trooper (VC45) figure from The Vintage Collection, another one of their many repacks for the line we discovered today. I’m shaking my head in disbelief. You have to wonder if they have any understanding of the line, or if they really listen to us after claiming they do. If they decided to re-release this figure’s sculpt, then why the heck did they not choose to go with the Clone Captain (red) or Clone Commander (yellow) that we’ve been waiting a decade to receive? Hasbro, if you have any mercy on our nerves, PLEASE skip the all-white Clone Trooper and get these Clone Officers out in the line first. It’s a stat emergency! It’s an action figure CODE RED (and YELLOW)! It’s way beyond the threshold of pain that we’ve been waiting for these figures. What’s the issue?

Hasbro, Are You KIDDING Us With All Of These TVC Repacks?

Two brand new The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ figures ALWAYS means two to four The Vintage Collection straight repacks. Sigh. When do you think Hasbro will catch on that they’re destroying the line? But maybe not all is lost if they do a couple of things differently. (more….)

Hasbro, if you don’t MILK the appearance of Emperor Palpatine in Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise Of Skywalker for an opportunity to bring The Vintage Collection collectors a super-articulated 3.75″ action figure of Emperor Palpatine, it may go down as one of the biggest mistakes of your career developing toys for the Star Wars brand license. Now, we know you’d likely be tempted to release it on a TROS card back, but we’re sorry to inform you it would have to go on a Return Of The Jedi card back so we can check off one of the Kenner original 92. Thank you. (Feel free to release a second version in a box with a throne too.)
