After my nausea subsided from being slapped in the face by boxes and boxes and boxes and boxes and boxes of Rey (Island Journey) action figures from three years ago, I became even more jaded by what else I found at Ollie’s. (more….)

There is going to be a lot of barking and clapping for The Vintage Collection Tantive IV Corridor playset. It could have been a whole lot better. And the pack-in figure enrages us. Hasbro is still playing the scam game of making you buy “one half for the price of one whole.” It should be two for the price of one instead. (A more expanded gallery is coming soon!) (more….)

Review: Darth Vader [Rogue One] - TVC - VC178

Wow. Not only is the new The Vintage Collection Rogue One Darth Vader awesome, but it’s also built from many existing parts. It’s about 75% old and 25% new. We provided comparison pictures of this new figure against all existing TVC Darth Vader basic action figures so you can see how far Hasbro has come with technology and kit-bashing parts. Hey, did you notice that VC number too? And what about those molded lower robes? (more….)

Review: Chirrut Îmwe - TVC - VC174

Is this Chirrut Îmwe from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, or is it Otto The AutoPilot from Airplane!? We’re not certain. Chirrut Îmwe should have been a slam dunk/hit-it-out-of the-park perfect action figure, but we think it lacks in some important ways. (more….)

Review: K-2SO - TVC - VC170

We like The Vintage Collection K-2SO. But we wanted to love it. Do you know why we don’t love it? You’ll have to read our review to find out. The figure has some issues, and Hasbro could have prevented them. (more….)

Over the weekend, I chatted with my former best pal Chris Swanski (from BanthaSkull.com) via text. I decided I couldn’t be friends with him anymore after he wouldn’t shut up giving glorious praise for The Vintage Collection Death Star Gunner (VC147) figure. I tried to enlighten him by going through all of the talking points about what’s wrong with this figure, but he just kept texting back in all caps “I LOVE IT!” So, it’s time for us to move on now. Hey Chris, if you’re OK with the Death Star Gunner’s “snorkel-for-an-antenna” then I expect a full redaction on your opinions of the horrifying lightsaber-launching R2-D2 from 1998!

Egregiously out of scale proportions seemingly don’t faze Chris.

The Vintage Collection Wave 22: Lower Your Expectations

We’re almost done with the reviews, but you can check everything else out right now including a ton of comparison images, diorama shots and the new figures interacting with other figures and vehicles. I have to admit that The Vintage Collection wave 22 isn’t doing it for me. My favorite figure in the wave is the Imperial Assault Tank Commander, and that should NOT be the case. I am thrilled about finally getting a carded “12-Back” Artoo-Detoo (R2-D2) figure, but this character and card back were worthy of a completely all-new sculpt. Oh well. Luke Skywalker (Crait) is a decent release, but he is limited in movement thanks to constricting robes. His articulation system is almost voided out by it. And the Death Star Gunner should have been the crowning joy of the wave, but it has disappointed me hugely. Anyhow, check out the new images of the latest figures. Hopefully, the next wave will be a little bit better.
