The Vintage Collection '10-'13 / Re: SDCC 2011
« on: July 5, 2011, 01:08 AM »
Hope to see more of the taun taun, perhaps the definitive version, not the prepainted
I to fond on medium ships, and I havenīt lost the hope of a bigger X Wing Fighter, with lights on the wings,
a sculpt decorated cockpit, taller to make the ladder of the toy "usable". With a Luke pilot of course, an update of the tlc snowspeeder one.

I am not sure, but 3 months before more or less, JTA showed an spoiler where Sim Aloo was scheduled, with a softgoods robe, the hat, pale skin, etc. That wave must be ready to appear on display.

Think this could be very much for Hasbro dudes, but if they are going to launch more Revenge of the Jedi figures, they can sell the tvc atst driver, from 2010 Attack on Hoth battlepack. This figure is the current evolution on at st drivers, and would be offered to collectors that canīt afford the whole pack yet.

The Vintage Collection '10-'13 / Re: Boba Fett Mail-Away Offer?
« on: July 2, 2011, 11:29 AM »
Acording to some reviews on video and webs like rebelscum
the tvc classic Boba is slighty different from the vintage, mostly on the disposition
of the jacket under the chest armor, the squares on the shoulders and size.

I look the photos of the very early Boba Fett from 1978 on theswca
the article said that this figure got vintage stormieīs arms but painted in Boba style. This figure depicts the firing misile too.

Something I think, this early Boba Fett is the slimmest Boba in the Kenner Hasbro line. I donīt know if this toy was distributed by the mail offer in 1978 or was immediately rčplaced by the current Boba we saw on the 1978
star wars cardback.

Hereīs my list for rotj figures

1. Luke Skywalker X wing pilot with the right black glove (another mold...not vtsc body)
2. Princess Leia Organa  Sandstorm deleted scene
3. Emperor Royal Guard, with removable helmet
4. Boba Fett from sail barge, with attack cable, removable helmet without skullcap
5. Rebel Commando (vintage) with green camo outfit
6. Fozec
7. Nien Nunb
8. Han Solo coming out of carbon block
9. Bib Fortuna (re sculpt)
10. Luke Jedi from Home One briefing room, with extra piece utility belt hanging hilt over sash.

On esb, there were more girls at the command center of Echo Base, besides Toryn Farr was a blonde chick.

Does anybody know the name of that feamale character?

or more please...

Does anyone could upload pics of the female operators in Echo base?

I think Hasbro will release Toryn in the near future, but the other rebel operators ladies would appear on some battlepacks, like the one with the Hoth sledge fans are waiting for.

Greeting, here is my list:

1. Luke Skywalker (Dagobah training with soft goods removable jacket)
2.Han Solo waiting for the carbonite fluid, with binders and carbonite block
3. Toryn Farr
4. Snowspeeder Wedge Antilles
5.Jeroen Webb, with removable hat and googles
6.Luke Skywalker (Hoth outfit with removable hat, SA)
7. Yoda the Jedi Master
8. Sergeant Merril Bespin wing guard
9.Lt. Sheckil
10. Bespin escape Leia Organa

I will pass all these sets.lack of interest in repeating those figures, the ones I donīt own yet would be bought on single card, preferably the original release.

The only thing I can tell is that the long rifle make profit of snowtrooper super articulation. Iīm not to fond on wide stance figures, but if Hasbro make a decent variation of this guy with that rifle.... could be the snowtrooper commander or the same mold but wearing boots instead of shoes like the original vintage....I will make the new acquisition.

Something I want is the launch of Hasbro ultra paint jobs for the figures, not only SA
cause peinting matches the sculpt. Frequently they forget to paint badges, belt buckles, boot soles
dots and stripes on stormies armors, glasses of helmets, etc.

Returning to wave 7

I like Han figure a lot, one accurate detail is the big poket on lower back of his jacket. This is the taller Bespin Han also, so this lets to build new Lukes a bit taller (the new Hoth Snow Speeder pilot, we are waiting for)

After seeing the pics from vakface on facebbok about Logray, we appreciate his primary evolution rests on articulation, cause is teh more posable medicine man from the 3 releases.

The paintjob is a very good update, giving special credit for the selection of colours.
But between potf2 and tvc Logray the bands on arms diminished from 4 to 3
the face of the character is predominently brown, seems they didnīt follow strictly the photo
no matter, is an interpretation

when size diminishes they dimish stripes on the body too. In contrast the weapons and pack are better sculpted than ever.

Saga Collection '06 / Re: TSC Recent Acquisitions
« on: June 15, 2011, 08:28 AM »
yesterday I bought the vtsc Han Solo in Trench coat (rotj) original release. I always try to buy the first version of a figure and avoid repacks, cause they omit some paint applications frequently on the reissue.

5 years after the launch of this figure, seems to be a durable interpretation of the character.

This black rebel commando got the necessary changes to a decent tvc variation
-comes with a beige trench coat, instead of the green from the bald white guy.
-His head looks different from the saga 2006 short black guy
Only hope sculptors have corrected the posture of the tvc white guy, which looks kinda hunchback without his coat and backpack. I understand this posture is motivated to attach these accesories, but must ne improved if Hasbro pretends to reissue this mold.

This evening I picked up the TVC Twin pod Cloud Car Pilot, at E.Wong in Lima, Perú
The figure costed 35 soles or 12.6 US $ in exchange.

This is part of a clearance sale, cause this esb wave marked 69.70 soles last Christmas.

Hi guys

Just look at sandtroopers news on the Y wing

Cool evolution of the vehicle! No matter is the same 1999 mold
Nice paintjob ever, the metal bronze parts of the structure, enhance the appreciation of its volume.
Very well done application of diferent shades of gray for the body, landing gears and missile bomb.

The cockpit shows the best updates: the movable radio with its extension, the steer and some panels with buttons

I hope this interior will serve  to an update of the X wing interior cockpit, on a new biggest X wing of course.


I think about some Bespin guards (caucasian and afroamerican) which could come with an open jacket feature for army build.

Also I would like to have a new Rebel Endor Commando that updates the all green suit, perhaps a soldier with an extra piece for belt and bandolier, an accurate paintjob on camouflage.

A resculpt of the OT Tusken, Sand people, if this comes with sofgoods, more definition on the rob.

Would like to see an update of the pdt-8 if the re-release isnīt possible
Pdt is the basis for an evolution onto Hoth Sledges, is how Hasbro Kenner interpret them.

The new speeder bike is also on schedule, hope to see how they will depict the hoover motion. Is a challenge for sculptors as they probably dispense with the clasic speeder bike legs.

Only a question guys, about these waves
And forgive me if I skip the trend a little

I have the Darth Vader from tlc
I havenīt bought the vintage style 3 pieces helmet update

As I looked on teh web all this time...
It seems that the only wave to remove the collar (the 3dr piece) is to
first remove the head.

So some reviews tell this instructions

remove head
separate collar
reinsert head without collar.

Is it the way this proceed or there is another way to remove the collar
without separating Vaderīs head?

Thanks in advance
