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 Power Droid.
The latest wave from The Vintage Collection is making its way to stores. Tonight’s Visual Guide features the long-awaited Power Droid (VC167). Click below to check out the full Visual Guide. Make sure to also visit our full review by clicking here.
It only took 41 years! But Hasbro finally got it right! The Lars’ homestead EG-6 Power Droid is finally released and part of the wonderful The Vintage Collection. An original Kenner 20-Back, Hasbro maintained its original name and card art. It’s also the final 1979 figure to be designed/released. The bottom line is that It’s BEAUTIFUL. In retrospect, the Power Droid was so simple to produce. You have to wonder what took them so long to make it. (more….)
