The Vintage Collection Anakin Skywalker (Peasant Disguise) (VC32), also part of the “worst reissue wave ever,” has never looked better.And it has more than just a couple of enhancements. The Photo Real on this figure is stunning. And the new soft-goods are perfection. We took the time to break it all down for you by producing an all-new 68-image gallery complete with both versions (2011 and 2021) featured, comparison shots, and a breakdown of what separates the two releases in the Collector Notes. Check out this excellently updated figure in our RDRs now! There’s more difference here than you may realize.

The Vintage Collection Battle Droid (VC78), part of the “worst reissue wave ever,” was a curious release back in 2012. It’s more curious today because it’s not the best 3.75″ super-articulated Episode I Battle Droid action figure from Hasbro. The best is still from the 2011 Star Wars [Shadow of The Dark Side] Episode I Blue-ray Commemorative Edition four-pack. The figure is well-made and designed but falls short of definitive status thanks to its inhibited movement, and inability to stow the E5 blaster rifle on the backpack. Hasbro did make improvements, however, including a uniform weathered paint job. But Hasbro also employed a less rigid plastic this time, so the parts feel rubbery in places. We took the time to break it all down for you by producing an all-new 76-image gallery complete with both versions (2012 and 2021) featured, comparison shots, and a breakdown of what separates the two releases in the Collector Notes. Check out this excellently updated figure in our RDRs now! There’s more difference here than you may realize.
The worst wave of The Vintage Collection repacks of all time is now hitting your local Walmart store. JTA reader and friend Russ T. found the wave at his local Walmart in NJ. Let us know of your store finds too in the comments!

We’ve updated our The Vintage Collection Tantive IV Corridor playset Photo Gallery with a bunch of new diorama images. Can you tell which ones are screen-accurate?
I wish Chris Swanski from Bantha Skull would refrain from ordering his personal products during peak The Vintage Collection exclusive ordering times because Walmart can only deal with so much at a time. One of our readers, Aaron P., accidentally received Chris’ shipment of “personal items” instead of The Vintage Collection’s Din Djarin, and Aaron lost out on Din Djarin because of this mixed up shipment. Chris, text me and we’ll figure out how to get these to you. But please don’t order this stuff during another TVC ordering frenzy. Click through for JTA reader Aaron P.’s experience.
There is going to be a lot of barking and clapping for The Vintage Collection Tantive IV Corridor playset. It could have been a whole lot better. And the pack-in figure enrages us. Hasbro is still playing the scam game of making you buy “one half for the price of one whole.” It should be two for the price of one instead. (A more expanded gallery is coming soon!) (more….)
Something’s gotta give. This is a mere sampling of the many items from my many orders with Walmart that have been canceled without warning. The Black Series 6″ figures, The Vintage Collection figures, and Walmart exclusives have all gotten canceled. I must have over 30 cancellation emails from Walmart now. The question is whose fault is this? It’s a question we’ve never received an honest answer to from anyone.

Meh. Some will really like the Incinerator Trooper from The Vintage Collection. But we had higher hopes for it. Maybe it’s because we can’t find this figure anywhere that we cannot fully appreciate or enjoy it? (more….)
