FINALLY! It only took 18 years, but Hasbro stepped-up to give us a proper STAR WARS Stormtrooper for The Vintage Collection. The wait started in 2004. Folks, we now have our definitive A New Hope Stormtrooper action figure. See why you won’t want to miss this one! (more….)

You Bent My Death Star Droid

JTA reader and friend, Alientek ordered a bunch of figures off of Hasbro Toy Shop’s eBay Store and received this little gem in the mail from them. It’s the Walmart exclusive The Vintage Collection Death Star Droid sealed UPSIDE DOWN on the card. Coincidentally, Hasbro Toy Shop packaged the figure in a way that resulted in a curled card, but the figure has a much bigger issue.

Happy 45th Birthday to Star Wars! Before Disney sucked the spirit out of the franchise much like how the Skeksis drained the essences from the podlings, there was a little film called Star Wars, NOT A New Hope, and it changed most of our lives forever. And we show gratitude to its Maker, George Lucas, for creating the greatest space fantasy franchise of all time.

If I had written this article the day of the announcement, it might have looked pretty ugly, not that this post will be much better. But in all seriousness, what’s the deal with making The Vintage Collection Stormtrooper from A New Hope a Walmart exclusive? (more….)

The Vintage Collection: The Ninety Six - The Wrap-Up

And it’s a wrap! It took us all year, but we got through Hasbro’s The Vintage Collection The Ninety Six action figures and provided our assessment on where we are for each one. Many of you have asked if we’d do a wrap-up. Well, we think it’s best if you provide your input in this article. Give your impressions on where we are with this line, and see how far we have yet to go before completion. We have a dedicated place on our website for The Ninety Six. Click HERE and you’ll find all 96 action figures. And if you hover over them, a GREEN border means we have an acceptable figure already in The Vintage Collection, and if you hover and the border turns RED, it means Hasbro has work to do! As Hasbro releases action figures, we will update this page. Thank you for your participation in this column. It’s been a blast!

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 Luke Skywalker (Imperial Stormtrooper Outfit).

Holy smokes! Check out the AWESOME VINTAGE KENNER 2022 CALENDAR on Amazon. It looks like someone who designed this got inspiration from our Vintage Kenner Research Droids Reviews!

It’s another Hasbro cash-grab! The Target exclusive Retro Collection Stormtrooper (Prototype Edition) figure is more of the same. Are you getting tired of these yet? Why can’t they use pastel and black and white plastics for these things? (more….)

Review: Boba Fett (Prototype Edition) - RC - Target Exclusive

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. It’s more of the same, but at least it’s Boba Fett! However, is this figure really a prototype? (more….)

We are looking at SE7EN new 3.75-inch The Vintage Collection action figures! The Vintage Collection Death Star Droid epitomizes “bittersweetness.” It’s so nice to see this figure in vintage Kenner packaging, but it’s a lousy action figure based on a Kenner figure instead of the on-screen character. (more….)
