Anakin Skywalker / Durge (Obssession #3) - Hasbro - The Legacy Collection (2008)

Tag Archives: The Clone Wars

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….)

Review: Jedi Order - Celebrate The Saga

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?!

Review: ARC Trooper Fives - TVC - VC172

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….)

The Vintage Collection Obi-Wan Kenobi (VC103) went sky-high on the aftermarket, so it makes sense we’re seeing the figure again eight years later. Hasbro re-released the figure with improved paint operations and Photo Real. For The Vintage Collection “2.0” lineup, Obi-Wan Kenobi received a significant amount of updating. They even changed the pitch of the character’s head on the card art. In our opinion, the Photo Real deco is stunning, if you can find the right sample that is. The colors are quite different on the re-release. We took the time to break it all down for you by producing an all-new 76-image gallery complete with both versions (2012 and 2020) 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.

The Vintage Collection Anakin Skywalker (VC92) broke the mold for The Clone Wars line in 2012. Since then, the realistic style became the “norm” for this Star Wars source. For The Vintage Collection “2.0” lineup, Anakin Skywalker received a wealth of updates. The Photo Real deco is stunning if you can find the right sample that is, and the scar is more pronounced now than ever. Also, and we didn’t notice this until now, the skirt was installed backward on the original release. Did you know? Hasbro spun it around for a proper drape this time. The colors are quite different on the re-release, that Anakin Skywalker almost feels like an all-new figure…. sort of. We took the time to break it all down for you by producing an all-new 72-image gallery complete with both versions (2012 and 2020) 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: Clone Trooper (Kamino) - TBS6 [P4] - TCW01

Wow again! The Clone Trooper (Kamino) figure from Season 6 of The Clone Wars is another home run hit! It might have some helmet issues, but this is a HUGE improvement? (more….)

Review: Chewbacca - Mission Fleet

The Chewbacca Mission Fleet figure is the best of the first wave. It has a strong The Clone Wars vibe to it, but it will also work for an animated take on the Original Trilogy character. And it comes with a Wookiee flyer! Will you give this line a chance too? (more….)

Review: Clone Trooper - Mission Fleet

The Clone Trooper Mission Fleet figure is another excellent toy. The figures and vehicles in this line are highly-detailed and generally look fantastic. This one is based on a 2005 Revenge Of The Sith Deluxe figure. Check out to see what all the fuss is about with this line! (more….)

Toy Run Tuesday #56 - Clone Commander Tutorial

Hello once again, toy runners! It’s been a fantastic week in Star Wars. I got the newest wave of The Vintage Collection figures, and they are real winners! When we posted our review of Clone Commander Wolffe, I shared a photo of Thorn and Rex that I customized with a VC45 clone body instead of the swivel hip body Hasbro used for the commanders. I did the same thing with Wolffe last night, and by popular request, you’ll find a small tutorial on doing it yourself if you click here.

Wow, these are incredible looking figures folks. Maybe one day we’ll get them in 3.75″ too, but for the favorite children of Hasbro, you get 4 all-new figures from The Clone Wars in 6″ form. Check out the photos of the individual figures and their packaging HERE. Thanks to Mike Z. in the Star Wars The Black Series Collectors Facebook group for the heads up!

The article states they will be available for preorder exclusively from Walmart tomorrow at 10 AM EST.

Another one of the many great divides in The Vintage Collection is the Clone Trooper (VC45) figure. Some think it looks like a realistic version of the characters from The Clone Wars television series. Others feel it is a perfect 3.75″ encapsulation of the characters seen during the Battle of Geonosis in Attack Of The Clones. A wise repack in The Vintage Collection “2.0” lineup in our opinion, the figure finally comes with Photo Real, a flatter matte paint job, and significantly revised packaging. We took the time to break it all down for you by producing an all-new 92-image gallery complete with both versions featured, comparison shots, dioramas, and a breakdown of what separates the 2011 version from the 2020 new release in the Collector Notes. Check out this excellently updated figure in our RDRs now! There’s more difference here than you may realize.
