In case you haven’t noticed, the most recent wave of The Vintage Collection is strewn with horrid card art. What’s the deal, Hasbro? You need to fire your graphics team. These are mostly terrible. And if it wasn’t for JTA leading the campaign to fix the Return Of The Jedi Boba Fett card art, it would have been a total debacle! Princess Leia (Bespin Escape) is an embarrassment, Zutton is horrible. What the heck happened to Greef Karga’s packaging image? And with all the attention Baby Yoda is getting, you couldn’t find a less blurry image of Grogu? What’s with all of the hand-drawn-looking reference stills? They look worse than the vintage Kenner drawings! Please use high-resolution character film-outs, or hire someone else to do your packaging graphics. This collection deserves your best. Thank you!
That’s a wrap! We concluded our Research Droids Reviews on The Vintage Collection Wave 29, including the long-awaited Return Of The Jedi Boba Fett. If you missed any, be sure to catch up. The carded images are finally updated.
There is mixed reception with Princess Leia (Bespin Escape) (VC187) figure. But it’s not as bad as you think. Hasbro released the last version 20 YEARS ago. It’s hard to believe, isn’t it? This version has a lot of new tooling. See what Hasbro did! (more….)
BREAKING NEWS! Also, a production sample of the new The Vintage Collection Princess Leia (Bespin Escape) has hit on Facebook. Special thanks to JTA reader Geeker Things for the alert. Image courtesy of Michael Nads from The Vintage Collection Facebook Group. The figure looks amazing…. but that card art! Yikes!
The Black Series [Phase III] Moloch and Princess Leia (Bespin Escape) 6″ figures are both IN STOCK at TARGET’s online store for those of you interested. Thanks to everyone who wrote in to let us know!
As we;ve known for months now, the Princess Leia (Bespin Escape) 6″ figure and the “Imperial Forces”six-pack of Force Link 2.0 figures street date was today. We are also getting a lot of reports of our readers finding them on the shelves. JTA reader Shakes The Clone sends us an image from Charleston South Carolina.
This is quite a surprise. A JTA reader who has asked to remain anonymous has located and purchased The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ TARGET exclusive Princess Leia (Bespin Escape) figure in Los Angeles CA (At a TARGET store obviously). They’re out there, folks! BY the way, the sketch of Leia on the packaging is dreadful.
