Here’s the review! It’s a crying shame where The Vintage Collection is at today. The Special Action Figure Set (Cave Of Evil) isn’t the worst thing Hasbro’s done, but it’s like the manifestation of salt in the wound. See the sixteen-image reenactment of Luke’s Jedi training on Dagobah using the vintage Kenner Dagobah playset in our Photo Gallery! Find out more in our Research Droids Reviews today!

JTA reader Ruben J. found The Vintage Collection Cave Of Evil Special Action Figure Set at his local TARGET shelves. Sadly, he couldn’t take them home because of the November 10th street date. But we do have a HUGE image of it to share with you. Your thoughts in the comments please!
Since Hasbro does not do their due diligence and release the most senseless repacks, we thought we would to help you. If you want to save over $8 on the upcoming and unnecessary reissued General Lando Calrissian figure, you can get him RIGHT NOW for $4.87 at Walmart’s online store. There is no reason to shell out $13+ for a pre-order when Walmart’s giving it away as we speak.
An ultra rare Kenner Rocket-Firing Boba Fett action figure is up for auction! Hake’s auctions has the figure and they believe it may bring in up to $500,000. Now, I think this is a bit on the high side. Earlier this year an unpainted prototype of Rocket-Firing Boba Fett was sold for a then record high of $112,926. What speaks for the Boba Fett up for auction now is its near mint condition, he’s also fully painted. The figure is AFA-graded 85+ NM+. You can see a photo of the actual figure below, click on it to see it in great detail. The current bid is almost $121,000, with 14 more days to go, so this Boba Fett will definitely set a new record for the most valuable Star Wars action figure ever, even if it’s not auctioned off for $500,000.
Go to Hake’s auctions to see all the details, including more photos, plus certificates of authenticity. They also have a carded double telescoping Darth Vader and Obi-Wan Kenobi (both believed to bring in up to $100k) up for auction. Certainly the perfect gift for any serious Star Wars fan! Now you only need to find someone who has the money and who likes you very, very much! Thanks to Aldo S. for the alert!

Hasbro, we have to chat. Thank you for providing us definitive updates of the Luke Skywalker (Yavin) and Princess Leia Organa (Yavin) figures. You did a fantastic job on them, and the enhancements you made to the figures are appreciated. But did you realize you produced these characters as they appeared at the very end of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope? You forgot to update these characters in their outfits at the BEGINNING of the film. We made it easy for you. We provided images of the figures you neglected to update. Click through for more!
