Review: Imperial Gunner - TVC - VC232 [Walmart Exclusive]

Do you remember the scene from “Misery” when Annie Wilkes exclaimed “He didn’t get out of the cockadoodie car!”? That’s about where we are with the Walmart exclusive Imperial Gunner figure from The Vintage Collection. Apparently, Hasbro believes they can pull the wool over longtime TVC collectors’ eyes so they can pass off an old figure from a Disney Star Wars source as an OT character when it’s entirely inaccurate!

Review: Princess Leia (Ewok Village) - TBS6 [P4] - ROTJ09

Does the use of the words “Ewok Village” in Princess Leia (Ewok Village) intimate that Hasbro might be working on a 3.75-inch playset or figure for the 40th Anniversary of Return Of The Jedi? It’s an odd choice of words to describe an action figure of a character from Episode VI, but it could be nothing at all. It’s a beautiful action figure. And most importantly it’s one of the most-needed updates in The Vintage Collection. (more….)

Review: Bib Fortuna - TBS6 [P4] - ROTJ08

The Black Series [Phase IV] Bib Fortuna 6-inch figure is nice, but it isn’t perfect. And it uses parts from an older figure. Learn more by reading the review. (more….)

But they could have prevented it. A few additions would have made this a surefire hit, and collectors might not have balked at its price. But wow. That Jabba’s Palace Throne Room playset environment is something else, isn’t it? That said, you know from the comments that its price is staggering, and collectors are saying “no way.” Collectors are being forced into a “direct to market” scenario as it’s a Hasbro Pulse exclusive. And there were so many ample opportunities they could have incorporated to make this The Vintage Collection centerpiece shine above anything else released previously. Well, maybe save for The Khetanna. With just about 15 minutes of talking about this item with my good friend John McCartney, we came up with many ideas to guarantee this release some incredibly enormous success (and enthusiasm).

Review: Bib Fortuna - TVC - VC224

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 Dignitary.
