JTA Presents: The Pathway To The Vintage Collection

To understand The Vintage Collection’s present is to respect its history. If you’re relatively new to collecting, you’ve quickly figured out that The Vintage Collection is Hasbro’s most popular 3.75″ super-articulated basic figure line ever produced. And many collectors will tell that Hasbro no longer treats it with the tender loving care it deserves. (Opinions vary greatly on that sentiment.) However, lovers of this line became saddened when Hasbro temporarily retired the line in 2013 as it paved the way for The Black Series 6″ line. Collectors waited for a grueling half-decade before we saw the line’s return. You already know the rest of that story. But do you know how we got here the first time? Please join us in discovering The Pathway To The Vintage Collection on the 10th Anniversary of the original line launch!

Review: Chewbacca - Mission Fleet

The Chewbacca Mission Fleet figure is the best of the first wave. It has a strong The Clone Wars vibe to it, but it will also work for an animated take on the Original Trilogy character. And it comes with a Wookiee flyer! Will you give this line a chance too? (more….)

Review: Clone Trooper - Mission Fleet

The Clone Trooper Mission Fleet figure is another excellent toy. The figures and vehicles in this line are highly-detailed and generally look fantastic. This one is based on a 2005 Revenge Of The Sith Deluxe figure. Check out to see what all the fuss is about with this line! (more….)

Well, the Luke Skywalker & Yoda (Jedi Training) two-pack set from The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ line is superb. It comes with two all-new figures with a generous amount of accessories. But it isn’t perfect. Do you know how it could be perfect? (more….)

We like The Vintage Collection K-2SO. But we wanted to love it. Do you know why we don’t love it? You’ll have to read our review to find out. The figure has some issues, and Hasbro could have prevented them. (more….)

Review: Luke Skywalker (Stormtrooper) - TVC - VC169

Well, color us surprised. Hasbro redid the Photo Real application on this Luke Skywalker (Stormtrooper) figure. We had no idea they intended to update it with any changes at all. It’s an excellent 3.75″ super-articulated action figure. We have a definitive version of this character finally. Are you repurchasing it for your collection? (more….)

Review: Power Droid - TVC - VC167

It only took 41 years! But Hasbro finally got it right! The Lars’ homestead EG-6 Power Droid is finally released and part of the wonderful The Vintage Collection. An original Kenner 20-Back, Hasbro maintained its original name and card art. It’s also the final 1979 figure to be designed/released. The bottom line is that It’s BEAUTIFUL. In retrospect, the Power Droid was so simple to produce. You have to wonder what took them so long to make it. (more….)

What would you do or what would be your response if Hasbro announced the Rebel Blockade Runner for The Vintage Collection HasLab project? Imagine finally getting the vehicle from Kenner and Hasbro that didn’t get past prototype form. Imagine a Captain Antilles and Rebel Fleet Trooper with a new portrait carded in classic TVC packaging as pack-in figures (Please don’t comment on other suggestions just yet as we’ll be addressing multiple ideas this week.)
