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 Rebel Commander.
Let’s update our Visual Guide for the POTF2 [Green/Freeze Frame] Deluxe Hoth Rebel Soldier set. Click below to check out our newly created Visual Guide page, and make sure to also check out our recent review of this set right here.

We are so incredibly thrilled that The Vintage Collection is back! And we hope you hear it in our voice! Let’s kick off with the Rebel Soldier (Hoth) (VC120). We couldn’t think of a better figure than to kick off TVC’s reboot with than this figure. He is the focus of our Research Droids Reviews today!

This is cool! Instagram user gorkoracing has images of unproduced super-articulated 3.75″ action figures. There apparently was supposed to be an Echo Base set produced including a revised Rebel Trooper and an all-new Probe Droid. He also lists that a new Death Star Gunner was part of the set, but I am certain he is mistaken. If you recall, JTA broke the news of the Death Star Gunner coming as part of the now-canceled The Black Series [Phase I] line as a basic figure for which we have insider information. (That Death Star Gunner basic figure release apparently never came to pass.) Hopefully, Hasbro gets all of this beautiful glory released in the relaunched The Vintage Collection! Special thanks to friend Victoria from Victoria’s Cantina for the alert!
