Review: Obi-Wan Kenobi (Wandering Jedi) - TVC - VC245

“Wandering” sounds so aimless. But Hasbro shows collectors their drive and passion for The Vintage Collection line is anything but aimless with the  Obi-Wan Kenobi (Wandering Jedi) figure. Besides, you have to learn more about the L0-LA59 accessories included here. Hasbro gives us more “stuff” in a basic carded release than in their “Deluxe” figures sub-line. And it’s a fantastic addition to the line. (more….)

Review: Yoda - TVC - VC218

Hasbro fails TVC collectors again with The Vintage Collection Yoda (VC218) figure. Refusing to update the swivel elbows collectors have begged for since 2011, they plopped the “Cave Of Evil” figure on a card sporting The Empire Strikes Back entertainment logo, added a few different paint operations, and called it a day. They should be ashamed. (more….)

The Vintage Collection Luminara Unduli Clone Wars figure received a remarkable update, and it’s the first entry of Luminara figures added to The Vintage Collection! It’s another gorgeous action figure in the line. It’s impressive what Photo Real did for this tooling too! (more….)

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  Yoda.

Review: Mace Windu - TBS6 [L50] - Best Buy Exclusive

Review: Qui-Gon Jinn - TBS6 [L50] - Best Buy Exclusive

Did you know The Black Series [Lucasfilm 50] Qui-Gon Jinn has a newly retooled head sculpt? They eliminated the “floating eyeballs” feature and completely repainted the figure. It’s gorgeous. It’s almost sad it’s a Best Buy exclusive.. (more….)

Review: Plo Koon - TBS6 [P3] - 109

The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ collectors are getting a taste of what happens to a long-running Star Wars line. And they better get used to more! Hasbro has to meet budgets, and in order to meet budgets, reusing existing tooling is a requirement. The “Attack Of The Clones” wave is essentially the first “repack, refreshed, and repaint” wave for the 6″ line. but 3.75″ collectors are used to them. Plo Koon isn’t perfect, but it’s an admirable effort. Will you add one to your collection? (more….)

Visual Guide Update - Kit Fisto (112) - The Black Series

Review: Kit Fisto - TBS6 [P3] - 112

Holy cow. The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ Kit Fisto figure is a complete mess. The head sculpt looks like an amalgamation of the Episode II and Episode III versions of the character, but the deco and details more closely resemble the Revenge Of The Sith likeness. Either way, the figure doesn’t have a robe, comes with the wrong lightsaber hilt, and possesses a litany of other issues. 6″ collectors should demand a recount on this figure. (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….)

Review: Obi-Wan Kenobi - TBS [P3] - Titanium Series (02)

Remember how Hasbro treated 3.75″ super-articulated collectors when it came to celebrating the 40th Anniversary of A New Hope? The Titanium Series Obi-Wan Kenobi is one of the ways to remember that nightmare. It was a disappointment on MULTIPLE levels. (more….)

In 1984, new packaging for Star Wars figures was introduced for the European market. A cost containment initiative, the new packaging sported three languages of the Return Of The Jedi logo for a “one size fits all” approach. Although a “three-logo” design was created for The Power Of The Force line (as evidenced on some ‘boxed’ toys), it wasn’t carried over to the basic figure line’s card design. They continued to use the three Return Of The Jedi logos instead. Although the word “Trilogo” is found nowhere on the packaging, the term is universally adopted by all Star Wars collectors to describe this line of figures.

Today we revisit Ben (Obi-Wan) Kenobi. Ben (Obi-Wan) Kenobi’s Trilogo card art features an alternate “portrait style” image of the character with a background of the Millennium Falcon inside of the Death Star. The artists at Kenner “airbrushed” the bottom third of the character and added a lit lightsaber that didn’t exist in the original publicity shot. Most of the background is “fake” and also part of the “airbrushing” technique of the early eighties. It was also used for the running change American Kenner Return Of The Jedi figure. The review’s Collector Notes are updated with this information. See the full card art and additional notes by revisiting 1978’s STAR WARS Ben (Obi-Wan) Kenobi figure HERE.
