The Vintage Collection Bespin Security Guard (Helder Spinoza) is the best figure of 2022, and we say that knowing it has imperfections and is 50% reused parts. And it’s hard to believe we waited 42 years for the FIRST modern counterpart to the classic 1980 The Empire Strikes Back vintage Kenner release. It’s like waiting for a new ABBA record. But it’s finally here, and it’s divine. (more….)

Review: Yoda - TVC - VC218

Hasbro fails TVC collectors again with The Vintage Collection Yoda (VC218) figure. Refusing to update the swivel elbows collectors have begged for since 2011, they plopped the “Cave Of Evil” figure on a card sporting The Empire Strikes Back entertainment logo, added a few different paint operations, and called it a day. They should be ashamed. (more….)

This figure topped JTA’s Fans’ Choice Poll, and once we published the results, it wasn’t long until Hasbro announced its imminent re-release. The Rebel Soldier (Echo Base Battle Gear) figure hasn’t looked better. They updated it with Photo Real deco, fixed the mismatched ankle joints, changed a few colors, and gave the boots a shiny finish instead of a matte finish. We took the time to break it all down for you by producing an all-new 56-image gallery complete with comparison shots, dioramas, and a breakdown of what separates the 2011 version from the 2021 new release in the Collector Notes. This figure is shipping in the Bib Fortuna wave, and Hasbro is selling solid case packs of the figure too. See this excellent figure updated in our RDRs now! There’s more difference here than you may realize.

Review: Lando Calrissian - TVC - VC205

Wow. The Vintage Collection Lando Calrissian is a nearly-perfect action figure. Sure, it has some imperfections, but you probably won’t care. You won’t want to miss this one for any reason! (more….)

Welcome to another entry in our The Vintage Collection: The Ninety Six column. Hasbro recently committed to collectors that they will be “focusing” on characters in The Vintage Collection that fall under “The Ninety Six” banner. If you’re new to this, it means that there needs a modern counterpart for every classic Kenner figure. Between 2020 and 2021, Hasbro’s made an admirable effort by focusing on these characters. But there is more work to be done, and we’ll figure out where we are step by step. Today we assess 4-LOM.
