As of right now, you can STILL get 5 of the 6 The Vintage Collection 50th Anniversary exclusives from at retail price.

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 Luke Skywalker (In Battle Poncho).

Are you curious to know what’s under the helmet of The Vintage Collection Luke Skywalker (Endor) (VC198)? JTA reader and friend Alientek performed the surgery. Would you believe that Hasbro tooled hair on this figure? Why couldn’t they go “all the way” and include the helmet as a removable accessory? Ridiculous. See our full review and picture gallery and this figure’s wave HERE.

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!

We are looking at SE7EN new 3.75-inch The Vintage Collection action figures! If you can forgive the shortcomings of Luke Skywalker (Endor), you’ll quickly discover that Hasbro developed an excellent action figure from existing and new parts for your collection. The new head sculpt is astounding, even if the dang helmet doesn’t come off of the head! (more….)

The Services Archaeology and Heritage Association Facebook page posted an excellent image of the world’s oldest action figure. It’s a 1,500-year-old Ceramic Maya figurine with REMOVABLE HELMET, from El Perú-Waka’, Petén, Guatemala. If only The Vintage Collection’s Luke Skywalker (Endor) from the year 2021 had the same state-of-the-art update included.

Where Do You Stand With The Vintage Collection Reissues?

Frustrated collectors often joke about how many repeat action figures we’re getting in The Vintage Collection. It’s become a chronic issue, that many are relabeling the second coming of The Vintage Collection as “The Repack Collection.” Yet, there is a great divide in opinion on how beneficial these repacks are. Getting decade-old action figures updated with Photo Real is a huge benefit in my eyes. And many of the action figures Hasbro chooses to re-release are classics, and I feel deserve another stab at retail. (more….)

If you think that the updated “photorealistic” technology is the only thing that sets apart the 2019 version of Luke Skywalker (Endor) (VC23) from the original 2010 release, you’re in for some surprises. Almost a full decade sets the figures apart from each other, and there is more you need to know.

Luke Skywalker (Endor) (VC23) is another one of our favorite reviews in our RDRs. We’ve also spent hours updating the Photo Gallery (which now sports 76 images and a wealth of comparison shots), updating text and new Editor’s and Collector Notes all to educate you on all the newness this figure brings to the table. Click the image below for the full experience! Make sure you’re aware of all THREE versions of this figure!

The new The Vintage Collection “repacks” are on TARGET’s website too. Remember, all of the human-faced figures are updated with “photorealistic” technology. Currently, all figures are sold out. Eagle-eyed collectors will notice that the names on 75% of these changed from their original release in 2010. Click any image below to be taken to that figure’s product page. Special thanks to JTA reader Mark for the alert!
