We’re catching up on TVC reissues! The Expanded Universe Starkiller (Vader’s Apprentice) reissue is the best version to date. Hasbro updated the figure with Photo Real and a few updated paint operations. This figure always does well each time it’s re-released, but it tops them all. We took the time to summarize all the new details for you by producing an all-new 100-image gallery complete with comparison shots and a breakdown of what separates the 2012 version from the 2023 reissue in the Collector Notes. See this magnificent figure updated in our RDRs now! There’s more difference here than you may realize.
Sigh. I shouldn’t have walked away from Hasbro Pulse’s Fan Fest online event saying “Why does Hasbro hate The Vintage Collection collecting community so much? Why are they completely disengaged from its needs?” But I did. And between the sorry repacks confirmed, to the desperately needed repacks they’re dangling over our heads, I understand why people are fleeing from this scale left and right. The straw that broke the camel’s back for me was the announcement of the re-released Han Solo (Endor) figure. Does Hasbro store any record-keeping of their releases? Do they go to discount outlets? Do they have any indication of what fans want? (more….)
