What a disappointment! Hasbro FINALLY gets Nien Nunb out to the public again, and it’s still too short, and they neglected the dark pink mouth paint operations once AGAIN! What’s up with this incompetent design team in Rhode Island? Anyway, check out the new version. It comes with less paint and a Return Of The Jedi 40 logo. We took the time to summarize all the new details for you by producing an all-new 68-image gallery complete with comparison shots and a breakdown of what separates the 2012 version from the 2023 reissue in the Collector Notes. See this anticipated figure updated in our RDRs now! There’s more difference here than you may realize.

We’re catching up on TVC reissues! The Return Of The Jedi Saelt-Marae reissue doesn’t look all that different from its original release. However, there are some changes here. This figure also has the distinction of being the only TVC 2.0 figure that received a re-release. Hasbro got it out to collectors again to celebrate Return Of The Jedi 40. We took the time to summarize all the new details for you by producing an all-new 68-image gallery complete with comparison shots and a breakdown of what separates the 2019 version from the 2023 reissue in the Collector Notes. See this impressive figure updated in our RDRs now! There’s more difference here than you may realize.

We’re catching up on TVC reissues! The Return Of The Jedi Kithaba (Skiff Guard) figure reissue looks stellar. The revised paint operations look excellent, and this time Hasbro remedied the mismatched elbow and ankle joints. Hasbro also worked in a half-toning wash on the arms and torso. We took the time to break it all down for you by producing an all-new 68-image gallery complete with comparison shots and a breakdown of what separates the 2012 version from the 2023 reissue in the Collector Notes. See this impressive figure updated in our RDRs now! There’s more difference here than you may realize.

We’re catching up on TVC reissues! The Return Of The Jedi Wooof figure reissue looks remarkable. The revised paint operations look excellent, and this time the skin is bright green. Hasbro also changed other details on the figure, including half-toning deco on the legs. We took the time to break it all down for you by producing an all-new 64-image gallery complete with comparison shots and a breakdown of what separates the 2010 version from the 2023 reissue in the Collector Notes. See this impressive figure updated in our RDRs now! There’s more difference here than you may realize.

The Return Of The Jedi Weequay figure reissue looks fantastic. It took Hasbro long enough to get it out to collectors again, but the revised paint operations are a marked improvement. Most importantly, they fixed the mismatched ankle and knee joints. But they also changed the colors. We took the time to break it all down for you by producing an all-new 60-image gallery complete with comparison shots and a breakdown of what separates the 2012 version from the 2023 new release in the Collector Notes. This figure is shipping now. See this excellent figure updated in our RDRs now! There’s more difference here than you may realize.

Review: Han Solo [Return Of The Jedi] - TVC - VC281

It’s 50% an older TVC figure, but Han Solo is a remarkable release. (Where is this figure’s subtitle?) But did Hasbro cheap out on this figure, however? Find out so! (more….)

Review: Darth Vader (Death Star II) - TVC - VC280

He is here! We had to get through an awful Disney Star Wars character before Hasbro returned to basics to produce the definitive “Return Of The Jedi” Darth Vader (Death Star II) figure. It may not be perfect, but we’re giving it a perfect score. Find out why! (more….)

Review: Biker Scout - TBS6 [ROTJ40] - Six Inch Figure

Review: Han Solo (Endor) - TBS6 [ROTJ40] - Six Inch Figure

One thing that sticks in my craw is the incessant seal barking and clapping over Hasbro’s The Vintage Collection’s Death Star Gunner figure. You know, the one based on the character from Rogue One. SPOILER ALERT: It is TERRIBLE! But more egregious than that is the acceptance that it fills the shoes of the classic 1985 The Power Of The Force Imperial Gunner figure. Would you believe that (GASP!) many collectors find it an acceptable counterpart? I will outline why I find these people deplorable Star Wars collectors*. (more….)
