JTA reader, friend, and customizer extraordinaire Alientek has put together a mock-up for us of what The Vintage Collection Republic Trooper (The Old Republic) (VC113) may look like for Hasbro to update it to current Lucasfilm standards. If they go this route, what do you think?
Sigh. I shouldn’t have walked away from Hasbro Pulse’s Fan Fest online event saying “Why does Hasbro hate The Vintage Collection collecting community so much? Why are they completely disengaged from its needs?” But I did. And between the sorry repacks confirmed, to the desperately needed repacks they’re dangling over our heads, I understand why people are fleeing from this scale left and right. The straw that broke the camel’s back for me was the announcement of the re-released Han Solo (Endor) figure. Does Hasbro store any record-keeping of their releases? Do they go to discount outlets? Do they have any indication of what fans want? (more….)
