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 Imperial TIE Fighter Pilot.

Stop the press! There is a new RDR in town! Let’s take a look at the six variants of the brand-spanking-new Target exclusive Boba Fett (Prototype Armor) 3.75-inch action figure that you probably cannot find yet.

The Vintage Collection Luke Skywalker (Hoth [Outfit]) (VC95) still needs new tooling, but the re-release is a major update. It looks good thanks to Photo Real updating and fixing matching elbow joints in the arms. It has many other enhancements as well. We took the time to break it all down for you by producing an all-new 108-image gallery complete with both versions (2012 and 2021) featured, comparison shots, diorama shots, and a breakdown of what separates the two releases in the Collector Notes. Check out this excellently updated figure in our RDRs now! There’s more difference here than you may realize.

Review: Princess Leia (Bespin Escape) - TVC - VC187

There is mixed reception with Princess Leia (Bespin Escape) (VC187) figure. But it’s not as bad as you think. Hasbro released the last version 20 YEARS ago. It’s hard to believe, isn’t it? This version has a lot of new tooling. See what Hasbro did! (more….)

Visual Guide Update - 4-LOM - Droid Depot

Tonight’s Visual Guide update features one of the first basic figure releases from the Disney Parks Droid Depot line. Click below to check out 4-LOM. Make sure to also stop by and check out our full review of this figure.

4-LOM - Droid Depot (Disney Parks)

The best 3.75″ super-articulated 4-LOM action figure that money can buy is a Disney Parks exclusive in the Droid Depot line. We say that admitting the deco isn’t accurate. Forget about The Vintage Collection version — it’s pitiful by comparison. See why you’re going to want this new 4-LOM action figure, and perhaps in multiples for your collection. If Hasbro is smart, they’ll ask Disney to borrow this tooling and get it into the reborn TVC lineup stat. (more….)
