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 Walrus Man.

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: Greedo - TBS [L50] - Amazon Exclusive

The Black Series 6″ Lucasfilm 50th Anniversary Greedo isn’t accurate to the on-screen character of Greedo, but it’s not accurate to the vintage Kenner Greedo either! (more….)

Hasbro did collectors of The Vintage Collection no favors with the announcement of the Death Star Droid. It STILL doesn’t reflect the modern counterpart of the on-screen character, because, well, it’s a modern counterpart to the Kenner figure only. (more….)

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….)

Review: Jawa - TBS6 [Lucasfilm 50] - Amazon Exclusive

Hasbro just produced a small group of 6″ figures based on the deco of their vintage Kenner counterparts. The Black Series 6″ collectors didn’t ask for them (they probably don’t want them). But The Vintage Collection collectors have asked for action figures like this since 1995. Hasbro said they would NEVER do this. Fibbers. That said, Ben (Obi-Wan) Kenobi is one of the best 6″ figures ever produced. We hope the 6″ collecting community appreciates a gift like this! (more….)

Review: Zutton - TVC - VC189

We can handle the re-release of an excellent action figure like Zutton. What we cannot handle is an inferior paint job, and the refusal to update the figure’s mismatched insert-molded joints. What gives, Hasbro? At least Hasbro got the name right. People are confusing this character as Takeel, but if you do your research, you’ll find that Takeel has curly and thinning hair, Zutton does NOT. This is Zutton. And it’s a check-off of our “Kenner 96” list. Find out why this is true. (more….)
