Meh. The Vintage Collection Droids Artoo-Detoo (R2-D2) figure is nothing special either. Hasbro didn’t even include the “pop-up” lightsaber accessory. (more….)

Review: Boba Fett [Droids] - TVC - Target Exclusive

We’re not going to lie. The Vintage Collection Droids Boba Fett looks gorgeous. But upon further inspection, you’ll discover how lazy Hasbro was because they did nothing to help the character’s screen accuracy. It’s ultimately another disappointment. (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….)

Longtime JTA reader Vas’rod sends us an alert that Hasbro Pulse UK has begun shipping the re-release of the Republic Trooper (The Old Republic) action figure. There aren’t many changes made to this re-release, but we also can’t see the entire figure. But most disappointing is that Hasbro didn’t update the font of the nameplate to correct it. Also, the good news is Hasbro could keep the Expanded Universe entertainment logo, something that Disney Star Wars would rather see die a slow death in an elephant graveyard, but that’s another story. So, that was a great win.

The Clone Wars Ahsoka figure was excellent in 2012, and it’s even better a decade later, thanks to a new paint job and Photo Real technology. We won’t say much here, so see why you’ll need to add this upgrade to your collection ASAP. We took the time to break it all down for you by producing an all-new 84-image gallery complete with comparison shots and a breakdown of what separates the 2012 version from the 2022 new release in the Collector Notes. This figure is shipping now. See this excellent figure updated in our RDRs now! There’s more difference here than you may realize.

JTA reader Aaron H. found the latest Retro Collection figures at his local Target in Eastern PA. Although the box had a street date, they were not register-locked.

The Phantom Menace Anakin Skywalker figure hasn’t looked better. They updated it with Photo Real deco, fixed the mismatched ankle joints, changed a few colors, and reissued it like it was 2012 all over again. We took the time to break it all down for you by producing an all-new 60-image gallery complete with comparison shots, and a breakdown of what separates the 2012 version from the 2022 new release in the Collector Notes. This figure is shipping now. See this excellent figure updated in our RDRs now! There’s more difference here than you may realize.

Hasbro Gets The Vintage Collection Card Hard

Long time The Vintage Collection collectors are about to rejoice! Are you tired of the flaccidly pathetic paper-thin cards brought on by the equally limp Disney Star Wars? You needn’t worry about this anymore. With the latest wave of repackaged figures, we’re thrilled to report that Hasbro upped the thickness of the figures’ cards, and they should hold up better in transit. Despite the good news, Amazon decided to ruin our sample by forcing it into a box too small. But that’s another story.

JTA reader Michael W. found The Vintage Collection Remnant Stormtrooper figure at his local Walmart for a mere $3.50. Keep in mind, this was the first time Michael ever saw the figure in brick and mortar. It makes you wonder what’s the point of retail anymore (on so many levels).

Now that we’re closer than ever to recreating all of the vintage Kenner characters from the 1980 The Empire Strikes Back line thanks to the announcement of both classic Kenner Bespin Security Guard figures, it’s time that Hasbro gets busy working releasing a The Vintage Collection of the Twin-Pod Cloud Car vehicle. Hasbro, in case you forgot, you have the tooling for a definitive re-release of this amazing vehicle back from 2010. And if you add a carded figure of an alternate (Twin-Pod) Cloud Car Pilot (please give us something different), collectors would be elated with your decision!
