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 General Madine.

Review: Teebo - TVC - VC207

The Vintage Collection Teebo figure is not an exciting release but a needed one. Still,  couldn’t Hasbro have included that alternate head sculpt to make us all happy? Sigh. (more….)

Vintage Kenner RDRs Get A Refreshed Design!

Those of you with an investigative spirit and eagle eyes may have noticed a major change in our vintage Kenner RDRs as we go through The Vintage Collection: The Ninety Six column. Chuck and I worked on developing a new template that more faithfully recreates the features, aesthetics, and imagery of the original Kenner cards while keeping its design in line with our proprietary Research Droids Reviews module. There is a happy medium to hit to get everything to look right, but we think we hit the mark. If you have some time, be sure to click through to the various STAR WARS reviews. We’re working behind the scenes to update the other collections as we speak.

Holy moly! The Prop Store YouTube channel posted a video by Phil Tippet that shows a clip of the pre-production animatics of the elaborated rancor scenes including some that never made their way to the final cut of Return Of The Jedi. You can also bid on the original videocassette of these scenes if you’re so inclined. Check it out!

That was something else when the out-of-production The Vintage Collection Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight) (VC175) showed up on Amazon for $12.99 a couple of days ago. The orders are arriving, and the shipping reports are all over the map. Especially my shipments for my 48-figure order. (more….)

Princess Leia (Endor), Paploo, and Luke Skywalker (Endor – With Non-removable Helmet). Oh, and let’s not forget the upcoming Scout Trooper from the Gaming Greats line. Yet, the current Hasbro Star Wars team hasn’t announced the reissuing of the fantastic Toys R Us exclusive Speeder Bike vehicle from 2012’s SW [The Phantom Menace 3D] line look. Hasbro, it’s high time to get out this stunning Speeder Bike vehicle to the marketplace again. You’ve never placed it in The Vintage Collection packaging. Add in a pack-in Biker Scout figure in The Vintage Collection packaging, and you’ll make us all very happy collectors. Don’t screw this up for the 40th Anniversary of Return Of The Jedi.

Review: AT-ST Driver - TVC - VC192 [Walmart Exclusive]

Review: Paploo - TVC - VC190 [Walmart Exclusive]

Today we look at the Walmart exclusive The Vintage Collection Paploo figure. What a joke! Hasbro slapped us all in the face with this one, and they should be embarrassed. It’s nothing more than Lumat in a different color and with different accessories. And this approach is bad when Paploo has distinct features from all other Ewoks. That’s just the beginning of this mess, however. (more….)

Why aren’t you purchasing The Vintage Collection Lando Calrissian (Skiff Guard) (VC144)? Not only was it the highlight of 2019, but Hasbro also took the time to correct the base figure’s (the “sandstorm” version) many issues, including its shortness, incorrect colors, and finally placed it on gorgeous Kenner-inspired packaging where it belongs. It’s perfection. I don’t want to hear that you passed on this figure because of the missing skiff guard blaster. It’s currently only $7.99 at Walmart.com. Don’t wait for this to sell out and then buy it on eBay for $40 or $50! After this, they’re gone forever!
