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….)
Hasbro takes four steps forward and one step back with the Elite Squad Trooper. It’s another member of The Bad Batch and also part of the latest wave The Black Series [Phase IV] figures now hitting everywhere.. (more….)

That’s a wrap! We just finished our look at The Vintage Collection wave 28 which includes The Mandalorian (VC181), Moff Gideon (VC180), Darth Vader (VC178), The Armorer (VC179), and Captain Rex (VC182). If you missed any of the reviews or the discussions, here’s your chance to catch up!
You have to wonder what happens during the Hasbro Star Wars planning meetings when you see a debacle of a figure like Captain Rex make the cut for a repack. This figure should have never been re-released. Ever. And how long will Hasbro play dumb about that cancelled phase I Captain Rex figure from 2013? It’s egregious at this point. Just release that dang thing already, Hasbro! (more….)
Hasbro suckered us into pay almost $17 each for the same figure three times with the 501st Legion ARC Troopers Special Action Figure Set. But do you care? It’s rare when we get new characters from The Clone Wars, so we should gratefully accept he overcharge, right? (more….)
Let’s continue to look at the Walmart exclusive wave of The Black Series [Phase IV] The Clone Wars figures with the addition of the Mandalorian Loyalist (TCW04) to our Visual Guides. Click below to check out the main guide page. Make sure to also check this figure out in our full review.
The Black Series [Phase IV] Cad Bane & Todo 360 two-pack will undoubtedly anger collectors. That’s if you don’t have it yet, of course. If you own it, it probably makes you happy. Hasbro missed one important detail on Todo 360, but overall, the figure is excellent. Cad Bane is also excellent, near-perfect, in fact. (more….)
Is Hasbro simply denying that Fives is getting repacked in the mainline? Their “ultimate checklist” is not as ultimate as they think. It lists the other figures from the wave (Hondo, Chirrut, Jedi Luke), but Fives is still conspicuously missing! We just reviewed this figure, and it’s one of Hasbro’s best. I have 4 of them in hand from Amazon, and another arriving today! Hasbro, where’s Fives?!
As of this review posting, ARC Trooper Fives still technically doesn’t exist. Hasbro has yet to formally announce this figure as part of the latest case assortment. It’s an imperfect figure, but at least it’s all-new. However, what’s up with that bronzey facial hair? Will you get this figure from The Vintage Collection for yourself? (more….)
Hasbro made TWO HUGE mistakes deciding on what figures to release in The Vintage Collection basic figure line. It might be two of their worst decisions in the ENTIRE run of The Vintage Collection basic figure line. (more….)
