We’re all caught up on the TVC reissues now! The Expanded Universe Republic Trooper (The Old Republic) reissue is another remarkable upgrade. Hasbro updated the figure with Photo Real and some other paint operations. We took the time to summarize all the new details for you by producing an all-new 100-image gallery complete with comparison shots and a breakdown of what separates the 2012 version from the 2022 reissue in the Collector Notes. See this magnificent figure updated in our RDRs now! There’s more difference here than you may realize.

Longtime JTA reader Vas’rod sends us an alert that Hasbro Pulse UK has begun shipping the re-release of the Republic Trooper (The Old Republic) action figure. There aren’t many changes made to this re-release, but we also can’t see the entire figure. But most disappointing is that Hasbro didn’t update the font of the nameplate to correct it. Also, the good news is Hasbro could keep the Expanded Universe entertainment logo, something that Disney Star Wars would rather see die a slow death in an elephant graveyard, but that’s another story. So, that was a great win.

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….)
