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 Klaatu (In Skiff Guard Outfit).

The Vintage Collection Wave 20: That's A Wrap!

Behind the scenes, I calculate various statistics on what happens here on our site, just for curiosity. And I have to say you all impressed me. We had unprecedented first-day unique visits for The Vintage Collection wave 20. It seems all the hobby needs is a strong wave of Original Trilogy characters to get everyone excited again. Anyway, thank you for the astounding traffic, and we hope you keep checking back as we add more figures to this fantastic collection. If you missed checking out our larger-than-usual galleries of Saelt-Marae, Klaatu (Skiff Guard), Princess Leia Organa (Boushh) and Scarif Stormtrooper, please be sure to check them out!

You saw our sneak peeks at Saelt-Marae and Klaatu (Skiff Guard) figures, but tonight we have the rest of Wave 20 for you to check out! The Scarif Stormtrooper is more different than we first realized. His base armor is a little more yellow, and it appears that the dirt deco is differently placed. Princess Leia Organa (Boushh) is, of course, stellar and the best version we have of her now. Yes, that dang thermal detonator is permanently affixed to her left hand, but you’re just going to have to deal with it because the “photorealistic” technology is terrific. (Remember, these are high-resolution images, and you’re going to see every imperfection. Don’t let it taint your appreciation of her! By the way, this should have been the first wave of the relaunched The Vintage Collection. I think things would be very different right now had that been the case. Don’t forget t leave your thoughts about these figures in the comments!

What's The Deal With The Vintage Collection's Packaging?

Well, If we’re all honest with ourselves, The Vintage Collection hasn’t gone the way most of us wanted it to go. This criticism is not intended to undercut the incredible work Steve Evans did with the Saelt-Marae and Klaatu (Skiff Guard) figures (and the rest of the newness he’s brought to the line). In my opinion, he should be allowed to retire with how beautiful they (and the rest) turned out from most 3.75″ super-articulated action figures. Photorealistic technology begins this year for human/humanoid 3.75” figures. (We already see some elements of this technology with the Resistance figures.) All of that is well and good. But when it comes to The Vintage Collection packaging, it appears we’re not forging ahead as much as we need. If you’re a loose collector, please move along as you’ll likely find this post pedantic.

Klaatu (Skiff Guard) is another phenomenal release from Hasbro. You’re going to love him just as much as Saelt-Marae. Hasbro went above and beyond working in an incredible and inordinate amount of detail in such a tiny area. He’s loaded with articulation and comes with a perfectly replicated accessory. Yes, the helmet isn’t removable, but this shouldn’t be a deal breaker for you. You’ll never have to worry about it falling off of his head. The review is coming very shortly, but the Photo Gallery and the Collector Notes are ready to browse. Special thanks to JTA reader and friend Binary_Sun for the composited image in the gallery. Enjoy!
