We’re briskly approaching a gloomy landmark from the return of The Vintage Collection compared to its original run. The first The Vintage Collection run ran for three years? (mid-2010 to “some point in 2013”). The return of The Vintage Collection started April 2018, and “some point in 2021” would make it the three-year point again. So, I have to ask the question.

And exclusives that steal our joy! More and more evidence accumulates that The Vintage Collection isn’t meeting demand from the collecting community. Figures recently released command upwards of $75, with most others going for $17 to $30 on average. Recently reissued from the original run are also extraordinarily demanding high prices. The Clone Trooper, in particular, is one of the more noticeable. Look at these aftermarket values on eBay! With almost NO PRODUCTS arriving at brick and mortar, you have to wonder why this line can’t catch a break. Some good things are coming in the future, but what’s the point if it frustrates everyone when they try to acquire them? What can Hasbro do to make this line more accessible? Perhaps releasing a better variety in each case assortment will help things? Who knows. But it does seem that The Vintage Collection needs a revisiting of the way Hasbro approaches the line.

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 three versions of Bespin Security Guard [A].

I get that the recently revealed Genndy Tartakovsky Clone Wars action figures for The Vintage Collection are getting a mixed reception from collectors. Still, for me, this is some of the most exciting news in recent memory as a Star Wars collector, and that’s with me accepting they’re imperfect. (more….)

Review: ARC Trooper Echo - TVC - VC176

We finish up looking at SE7EN new 3.75-inch The Vintage Collection action figures with ARC Trooper Echo. It’s a straight repack, but a necessary single-carded release for the line for many reasons, including its VC176 number that Hasbro overlooked! (more….)

Did Hasbro let another bomb slip? Thanks to JTA reader JKool, he alerted us to another potential slip in the Hasbro Q&A. The Hasbro rep spills the beans on The Vintage Collection exclusive Death Star II sets. What does that mean?! Listen at the 14:39 mark.

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.

Review: Offworld Jawa (Arvala-7) - TVC - VC203

We are looking at SE7EN new 3.75-inch The Vintage Collection action figures! It’s a shame that Hasbro didn’t wait to release the Star Wars Jawa in The Vintage Collection. Had they waited until they designed the Offworld Jawa (Arvala-7) figure, we would have a near-definitive counterpart to the classic Kenner 1978 figure! See what this Jawa looks like underneath those robes! (more….)

We are looking at SE7EN new 3.75-inch The Vintage Collection action figures! If you can forgive the shortcomings of Luke Skywalker (Endor), you’ll quickly discover that Hasbro developed an excellent action figure from existing and new parts for your collection. The new head sculpt is astounding, even if the dang helmet doesn’t come off of the head! (more….)

We are looking at SE7EN new 3.75-inch The Vintage Collection action figures! It only took 15 YEARS and MULTIPLE re-releases for Hasbro to update the 2006 VTSC Sand People action figure. And Hasbro’s press images of the updated release had collectors worried as it left a lot to be desired. We’re happy to report, however, that The Vintage Collection Tusken Raider is a pleasant surprise with a new portrait and new arms with enhanced articulation. And while imperfect, it takes the lead by quite a bit! We’re certain you’re going to like this one a lot! (more….)
