TVC Luke Skywalker (Yavin) (VC151) Parts Clarification

I made a couple of mistakes on the Luke Skywalker (Yavin) figure’s recipe. So, I wanted to clear that up here. Firstly, the figure is indeed a retool of 2013’s TBS [P1] Luke Skywalker (#05) figure. But the head sculpt (and hairpiece), forearms AND hands are all new parts. I initially believed they were the same hands of the Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight) figure from the Luke Skywalker Jedi Destiny set, but those hands are ball-jointed, and Luke Skywalker (Yavin)’s hands are swivel. I wanted to make that detail clear. They look to be based on each other, but they’re definitely different. If you haven’t seen our review on this figure, please check it out HERE.

Time Capsule: TVC Figure Questions For A Future Generation

Let’s enter fantasy land for a few moments. If given the opportunity, what would you ask the 2010-2013 Hasbro Star Wars Team about The Vintage Collection that you never got answered? What irritating features on figures never got updated that still bug you today? What TVC figures do you feel need to be re-released to meet collector demand? Do you still want VC66 and VC67 made available to those who missed out? Do you have any questions on why a specific figure was approached the way it was instead of another way? Whatever your inquiry or complaint, please leave it in the comments. Be sure also to reference the figure you’re talking about with its VC number, otherwise, we might not know.

Review: Luke Skywalker (Yavin) - TVC - VC151

NEW FIGURE! It’s time to check out the brand new The Vintage Collection Luke Skywalker (Yavin) (VC151) figure. It’s beautiful! And it will probably be the last time we’ll ever see this figure made. See how well the updated parts mix with the older ones. It will be everywhere this October. But you can see comparison pictures and more now in our Research Droids Reviews today!

WOW! BREAKING NEWS! Thanks to The Heroes and Villains Facebook group, we have carded images of the newest The Rise Of The Skywalker The Vintage Collection figures! There are important things to note! Hasbro must have listened to us whining about the name pills. Heck, we posted enough articles on that disaster. Both the font and style have been updated! Amen! Glory! Hallelujah! Also! There is some strangeness here too. Why is Poe Dameron on a The Rise Of Skywalker card back? BIZARRE! Not everything is perfect, but there are obvious strides of improvement! Check them out by clicking the image below. And don’t forget to comment! Special thanks to friend Josh M. for the alert!

Toy Run Tuesday #11 - Republic Gunships

A couple weeks back I posted that I got a grail piece in my collection: the Black Series Shock Trooper Helmet. This week I’m pleased to say that I was able to add another grail piece to my collection. The title is your answer, but there is more to the story. I also received an awesome photo from the client who I made those 2 ARC troopers for. Click through for my week in Star Wars, and let us know what you added to your collection this week in the comments!

The Rise Of Skywalker Initiates The Fall Of 3.75"!

Have you fully processed that the Hasbro The Rise Of Skywalker toy line will be the first without a range of 3.75″ figures outside of The Vintage Collection yet? It’s true. And you could say that this means that The Rise Of Skywalker is initiating the decline of 3.75″!

TVC Luke Skywalker (Yavin) NOW ON eBay!

ALSO! The figure is on eBay if you want one! Special thanks to JTA reader Kesh for THAT alert!

UPDATE: I messaged the eBay seller asking about the ankles, and he said he doesn’t see any ankle articulation added “but it’s hard to tell while in the packaging.” So, it doesn’t look like that detail was updated, sadly.

The Luke Skywalker (Yavin) listing that showed up on Walmart a couple of weeks ago is now visually confirmed thanks to Instagram. And it’s clearly not a straight repack as assumed by some collectors. Check it out! Thanks to JTA reader Ruari W. for the alert! Also, it’s definitely some type of retailer exclusive as evidenced by the assortment number. As Ruari and I both noticed, it looks like Hasbro is correcting their sin of placing the subtitle to the right of the figure’s name to underneath of it like it should. I am glad we whined about that now. Let’s hope they’re consistent with this fix! Original image from Tim at Bossk’s Bounty.

"Hasta La Vista!" To The Vintage Collection!

OK, perhaps “Hasta la vista!” is a BIT of an exaggeration, but what’s going on at retail when it comes to The Vintage Collection? TARGET has nothing beyond wave 1. And every Walmart near me has flat out removed it from the microscopic Star Wars section it maintains, which currently just has cheap roleplay lightsabers and Solo-era TBS6 figures.  Clearly, The Black Series 6″ is faring no better. Yes, we’re gearing up for Triple Force Friday, so we’re likely in a transitional stage, but how can collectors vote with their wallets if there is nothing out there to purchase and support? Goodness, gracious me.

Sail Barge Meets Skiff in This Glorious Toy Photo

I love toy photography. I follow about 20 pages on Instagram who regularly post new photos of toys from Star Wars, Marvel, DC, Hot Wheels, and more. I’m not sure as though I have seen a photo mirror a movie scene so accurately as this amazing work of art done by James R. Special thanks to him for letting me share his photo from Facebook. Another thanks to Steve Evans for signing off on such a beautiful design. Have you done any photography with your new skiffs? Show it off in the comments!
