Review: Grand Moff Tarkin - TBSA

Review: Imperial Gunner - TVC - VC232 [Walmart Exclusive]

Do you remember the scene from “Misery” when Annie Wilkes exclaimed “He didn’t get out of the cockadoodie car!”? That’s about where we are with the Walmart exclusive Imperial Gunner figure from The Vintage Collection. Apparently, Hasbro believes they can pull the wool over longtime TVC collectors’ eyes so they can pass off an old figure from a Disney Star Wars source as an OT character when it’s entirely inaccurate!

Review: Reva (Third Sister) - TBS6 [P4] - OW03

Holy cow! If dealing with Disney Star Wars means we’ll get figures like The Vintage Collection Darth Vader (The Dark Times) action figure, then so be it because this is the BEST 3.75-INCH DARTH VADER Hasbro ever produced. That’s not an exaggeration. This action figure can do ANYTHING! By the way, it’s hilarious that they gave TVC collectors an all-new figure with interchangeable hands and just gave TBS6 collectors a repack. Didn’t they have better profit margins with TBS6? Oh well. You MUST check out this work of art! (more….)

Review: Stormtrooper Jedha Patrol - TBS6 [P4] - RO09

It appears not too many Star Wars collectors know how to assemble The Black Series [Phase IV] Stormtrooper Jedha Patrol figure correctly, including Hasbro. Even their PRESS IMAGES are wrong. See this simple, yet gorgeous, figure in our review today put together the right way. (more….)

What a piece of junk! You’re braver than we thought if you plopped down $50 for this thing. OK, so these are exaggerations. But TVC collectors should start demanding that Hasbro raise the bar for the line, instead of lowering their expectations. Let’s take a look at the Nevarro Cantina from The Vintage Collection.

Review: Moff Gideon - TBS6 [CC] - Best Buy Exclusive

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 Imperial Dignitary.
