Review: Tusken Warrior - TVC - VC279

Check out The Vintage Collection Tusken Warrior figure. It’s a progressive female character in this species of Star Wars characters. And it uses a lot of old parts. (more….)

We are looking at SE7EN new 3.75-inch The Vintage Collection action figures! It only took 15 YEARS and MULTIPLE re-releases for Hasbro to update the 2006 VTSC Sand People action figure. And Hasbro’s press images of the updated release had collectors worried as it left a lot to be desired. We’re happy to report, however, that The Vintage Collection Tusken Raider is a pleasant surprise with a new portrait and new arms with enhanced articulation. And while imperfect, it takes the lead by quite a bit! We’re certain you’re going to like this one a lot! (more….)

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 for every classic Kenner figure, there needs a modern counterpart. 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.

We’re right in alignment with Hasbro in our vintage Kenner database. There are 21 figures under the STAR WARS banner, 29 figures under THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK banner, 31 figures under the RETURN OF THE JEDI banner, and 15 figures under THE POWER OF THE FORCE banner. (Sy Snootles, Max Rebo, Droopy McCool, and Blue Snaggletooth bring the number to an even 100 figures.)

Read our assessment, and then be sure to add your thoughts to the comments. Let us know if you agree or disagree. If you’re a customizer, show us your custom definitive figure in the comments as well! Who knows? It might give Hasbro some ideas.

Review: Tusken Raider - TBSA - Six Inch Figure

The Black Series Archive line affords collectors of the 6″ line a second chance at figures that are much too expensive on the aftermarket. Did you know the Tusken Raider was approaching $100 before this re-release? This version is also a little bit different. Check it out! (more….)

1978 STAR WARS Sand People Redux: Trilogo Update

In 1984, new packaging for Star Wars figures was introduced for the European market. A cost containment initiative, the new packaging sported three languages of the Return Of The Jedi logo for a “one size fits all” approach. Although a “three-logo” design was created for The Power Of The Force line (as evidenced on some ‘boxed’ toys), it wasn’t carried over to the basic figure line’s card design. They continued to use the three Return Of The Jedi logos instead. Although the word “Trilogo” is found nowhere on the packaging, the term is universally adopted by all Star Wars collectors to describe this line of figures.

Today we revisit Tusken Raider (Sand People) (Homme des Sables) which doesn’t vary much from the classic Kenner card art, except for the name. The review’s Collector Notes are updated with this information. See the full card art and additional notes by revisiting 1978’s STAR WARS Sand People figure HERE.

Vintage Kenner RDRs Redux: Sand People - SW - 1978

May The 12-Backs Be With You

We have just completed our intense look at the first series of vintage Kenner Star Wars figures: the 12-Backs. Because May is typically a Star Wars month and 2018 is the 40th anniversary that vintage Kenner Star Wars figures arrived at retail, we felt it was the perfect time to start vintage Kenner reviews. (Oh, and let us not forget The Vintage Collection’s return is another huge motivator of this run too.) Each new month, we will focus on a new series of figures where we’ll finish the complete vintage Kenner run in December with the 1985 The Power Of The Force line. Already, they are receiving wonderful feedback and tons of you are checking them out. But we want more of your stories, so please leave them in our comments. Thanks for your participation thus far, and we hope more of you leave your vintage Kenner experiences with us in the comments going forward! Thank you for making this a success for us. We put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into them and we were hoping that they’d go over well with our readers. They seem to have. And for that we’re grateful.

Walmart Takes Advantage Of The Situation.... Again

This is not something we as collectors are unfamiliar with. Walmart has done this before, but just look at the egregious prices Walmart is selling Wave 2 at. These have been coming in and out of stock at this price since the announcement came of the discontinuation. What’s worse, they sell out within minutes. This is who we had to rely on for our 3.75″ SA figures for awhile…thankfully that is ending. Click through to see more images.

40th Anniversary Wave 2 Popping In And Out On Amazon

These have been going so very fast, so it doesn’t help for me to post in stock alerts. However, for the past few hours ALL of them have been coming in and out of stock frequently for $19.99. I got a Stormtrooper 2 hours ago and just now got Chewbacca. So I recommend keeping an eye out because these will get harder and harder to find.
