Review: Darth Revan - TVC - VC301

Remember when all those crazies got mad at us when Hasbro canceled the 2007 30th Anniversary Collection Darth Revan re-release after we told them not to re-release it? And remember when those same crazies believed that Hasbro just forgot to add the figure into the lineup instead of canceling it, thanks to that fake news on YouTube? Well, our work has paid off. Now, we have an all-new, super-articulated, and exquisitely detailed Darth Revan action figure. Sometimes, getting people mad pays off, so we’ll continue to upset them. (more….)

You will certainly remember The Vintage Collection drama about Darth Revan. Hasbro originally announced plans to put Revan on a vintage card, but hopes of collectors were dashed when they found out that Revan would be yet another repack of an old sculpt and not a new figure. Fans were unhappy and told Hasbro on fansites what they think about repacking the old Revan.

And then TVC Darth Revan was canceled, because of fan feedback, or so Hasbro said. Collectors felt that Hasbro had actually listened to them and was happy. Someone is claiming to contradict that. New information coming from toy industry veteran Scott Neitlich (he worked at Mattel and has industry contacts) has surfaced that casts the story in a new light and you will not believe what he says happened! Click through for the full story and please sit down, because you may find it hard to believe what I am about to tell you.

In case you’re interested, I just added comparison shots of The Black Series [Phase III] Darth Revan (34) figure with the new Jedi Knight Revan figure. About eight new images have been added.

Hasbro confirmed that Darth Revan WILL NOT be part of the 2019 The Vintage Collection lineup. But it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out what’s going on behind the scenes. While purely conjecture, it’s nearly guaranteed that they’re developing an all-new figure of this character from the ground up (and hopefully utilizing the digital files of the 6″ figure). A year ago, we wrote a controversial article which we both got praised for and criticized for, but I am glad I wrote it. (The angry people were those who missed out on the 2007 figure and were desperate to add it into their collections.) I know we must be getting something worthy of release in The Vintage Collection. I also know Hasbro read the article and noted the over 300 comments and 15K reads it received. So, you’re welcome? We weren’t the only ones to complain, but we started it. Sometimes “whining” pays off. It brought back The Vintage Collection, and now it’s holding Hasbro to a higher standard for a collectors’ line.

Let the past die. Kill it if you have to (but only this old figure, Hasbro).

What's Going On With Darth Revan (VC150)?

So, what the heck happened to the 2007 re-released version of Darth Revan? Intended to be part of the 22nd wave of The Vintage Collection (the wave with Luke (Crait) and R2-D2), but now we know Darth Revan is not included. From the start, we made it clear that we were quite irritated that Hasbro decided to be this lazy and demanded that a character of such notoriety should receive an all-new KOTOR-accurate sculpt. Many of you felt similarly, about 12K of you, as well. If something isn’t going on with this figure, why wouldn’t Hasbro easily include a straight repack/slight repaint in this wave for more variety? Could something more be happening here? Or is it something simple like they can’t find the old tooling. I don’t believe the latter because they wouldn’t have announced the figure without checking that out first. And sorry if you don’t agree, but it’s egregious to include this figure in 2019. It’s an inferior sculpt, terribly-articulated, and inaccurate to the video game. No one should want any other type of a 3.75″ Darth Revan figure than a reduced 6″ version.

Is it the 30th anniversary of Star Wars again or did I just miss something? Because I don’t understand why 2019 will see the re-release of a figure from a dozen years ago. (more….)

“I am just as confused as you are, fellow 3.75″ super-articulated collectors!”
