I had a pretty good week when it comes to collecting. I took a trip an hour south to Tucson, AZ, and went to a wonderful swap meet. Some of my favorite vendors had vamoosed, unfortunately, but there were still a couple toy vendors with decent Star Wars merchandise. I also watched A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi, which marks the first time my son has gotten to watch the original trilogy (although he’s 2 so he ran around for a lot of it and went to be 3/4ths of the way through each movie, but boy did he like R2-D2!). In any case, click here to see a few photos of this week’s collecting finds!
One canceled item that genuinely devastated me was from Hasbro’s 2010 Legacy Collection line. The Star Wars #2 Comic Packs set which included a “white” Luke Skywalker (Snowspeeder Pilot) and kit-bashed Han Solo (Bespin Outfit) never made it out. Not even Entertainment Earth saved them in their exclusive “save the Comic Packs” case assortment. It’s safe to assume that I don’t need the Han Solo figure, but I would be lying if I told you I still didn’t dream about that Luke Skywalker figure. But how about you? Would you like to see either figure released?
The Star Wars comic universe is getting quite expansive. I am a fan of the few series I’ve read, especially the Darth Vader comics with Doctor Aphra, and I am looking forward to the upcoming Galaxy’s Edge series. Even though there are so many comics, it seems unlikely that Hasbro will be pushing a new comic 2-pack line any time soon. That doesn’t mean that comic characters are out of the question, of course. What would be the best way to introduce these characters? Click through for more…

Wow! Robot Kingdom did some warehouse cleaning and found some 2010-era Legacy Collection Comic Packs in stock. These included some of the finest figures Hasbro has ever brought collectors. It’s amazing to me how much many of these fantastic Comic Packs sets go for today on eBay. When the starting asking price exceeds $500 on some, you know that Hasbro created gold back in the day. Ah, the good ‘ole days.
Wow! This is why Hasbro needs to re-release some of the most sought after Comic Packs figures in The Vintage Collection. Look what this figure is being listed at on eBay!
This is really nothing new, but WOW! It would do Hasbro good to re-release so many figures that were part of the Comic Packs line, especially those from the red phase of the Legacy Collection. They would make lovely additions to The Vintage Collection next Spring. Check out the prices for the Ulic Qel-Droma/Exar Kun two-pack on eBay!
