If you care about variations and you ordered The Vintage Collection Princess Leia Organa (Yavin) figure from Hasbro Pulse, it’s a good bet you were shipped VC164. Also, VC150 is showing up at Walmart now (just found it yesterday).

If you’re interested, tunghori has listed the TVC Princess Leia Organa (Yavin) figure loose. If you’re not into the packaging variants but only want the new head sculpt and arms, then this might be your best option. The figure has been a bit difficult to find at retail at the moment. Special thanks to friend and JTA reader Mark for the alert! P.S. tunghori ALSO has listed the Leia Organa (Sandstorm Outfit) figure loose too!
There was some initial confusion about the numbering for the new Vintage Collection Princess Leia Organa (Yavin) figure. While Hasbro had announced at NYCC that Leia would replace the cancelled Darth Revan figure and be VC150, the first batches of the figure showed her with a VC164 numbering. Now Anthony S. has come across a VC150 Leia at his local Target, so Hasbro did know what they were talking about after all. Will you get both the VC164 and VC150 version? Thanks to Anthony for the alert and photo!

I totally missed this while shooting my initial Photo Gallery for the TVC Princess Leia Organa (Yavin) figure, but I just discovered that the portrait is all-new. The hairpiece is the same, but the portrait underneath is all-new. Hasbro also hgave her all-new forearms. (The swivel joint is now gone.) It’s difficult to tell with the Photo Real deco, but this is indeed true. Less obvious are some tooling differences in the chest and the hem of her long gown. (The drape is ever so slightly different too.) It’s awesome that Hasbro is adding new tooling to so many figures that they could have simply repacked them as is.
I received my sample of Princess Leia Organa (Yavin), and the number on it is VC164. Unless Hasbro misspoke, it looks like early batches of this wave will come with an incorrect VC number. If you recall from NYCC, Hasbro stated that Princess Leia Organa (Yavin) would be changed to VC150 to make up the spot for the “canceled” Darth Revan figure.
You can check out rough Photo Galleries for The Vintage Collection wave 24 RIGHT NOW in our Research Droids Reviews. The RDRs, begin tomorrow, but you can check out most of them now. Princess Leia Organa (Yavin) (VC150) got delayed but will be here tomorrow. I’ll add her as soon as she arrives. In a nutshell, wave 24 is a great “repack and repaint” wave. (Remember those?)
Interestingly, the Sith Trooper is an all-new figure. I thought for sure he used parts from the SIth Jet Trooper, but not a single part is reused. For me, the Jawa is bittersweet. I desperately wanted a Jawa on a Star Wars card, and Hasbro delivered. But I would be lying if I said I am content with the straight repack of The Black Series [Phase II] figure. A Jawa deserves all-new tooling and premium soft-goods. At the moment, the Shadow Trooper is my favorite of the bunch so far. It’s a fantastic sculpt, and the extra gear is appreciated and welcomed. Anyway, be sure to check them all out!
More figures from the latest TVC wave are hitting Amazon. You can now also pre-order the Shadow Trooper (VC163) and Sith Trooper (VC162), along with the Princess Leia Organa (Yavin) and the exclusive Sith Trooper (Armory Pack).
