501st Legion Trooper (SL 16) - Hasbro - The Legacy Collection (2008)
Star Wars Collectible News, Photos, and Reviews

Tag Archives: Lucasfilm 50th Anniversary

Hasbro, there are some collectors who like the Lucasfilm 50th Anniversary The Power Of The Force “2” packaging. That’s fine. But if you must release figures in it, can you please get it right? Princess Leia (Ceremonial Outfit) (not “Yavin IV”) came in the final unique packaging of the Kenner/Hasbro The Power Of The Force “2” line, in “starburst” FlashBack and CommTech packaging, not the original red/green card backs. This version of Leia was also part of  “The Princess Leia Collection” but that was different packaging too. Are you familiar with the different original modern toy line looks? Do you perform the appropriate research? It’s probably too late to fix, but you should, at the very least, know the error of your ways.

The second wave of The Vintage Collection Lucasfilm 50th Anniversary 3.75-inch figures are arriving from Walmart, and we’re getting many reports that they’ve continued to ship them one per box or envelope. And the envelopes are sometimes padded, and others times not. How do they afford all of these shipping costs? (Mine arrived one per box and envelope too, and the ones in the envelope were in better condition than those shipped in a box! Special thanks to JTA readers Ken P. and Matt R. for the images!

I know I see more positive reports than negative one when it comes to Hasbro Pulse. Still, JTA reader Jason A.’s recent delivery of The Black Series [Lucasfilm 50th Anniversary] POTF2 (one of their worst exclusives ever) arrived shoved into an ill-fitted box by their shipping department. This has been the norm for me. I’ve literally had better encounters with Walmart’s shipping than Hasbro Pulse. Oh well.

We are looking at SE7EN new 3.75-inch The Vintage Collection action figures! The Vintage Collection Death Star Droid epitomizes “bittersweetness.” It’s so nice to see this figure in vintage Kenner packaging, but it’s a lousy action figure based on a Kenner figure instead of the on-screen character.

We are looking at SE7EN new 3.75-inch The Vintage Collection action figures! It only took 15 YEARS and MULTIPLE re-releases for Hasbro to update the 2006 VTSC Sand People action figure. And Hasbro’s press images of the updated release had collectors worried as it left a lot to be desired. We’re happy to report, however, that The Vintage Collection Tusken Raider is a pleasant surprise with a new portrait and new arms with enhanced articulation. And while imperfect, it takes the lead by quite a bit! We’re certain you’re going to like this one a lot! (more….)

Here are some quick pics of the Lucasfilm 50th Anniversary line of Kenner-inspired The Black Series 6″ figures, something Hasbro said they would never do for 3.75″ collectors despite constant begging, but have done it for 6″ collectors. Whatever. Enjoy the pictures courtesy of friend and JTA reader Alientek. They’re awesome figures!
