The Vintage Collection / Re: Vintage Wave 6
« on: January 16, 2011, 12:06 PM »
Totally bummed about the Lando. Nice to get the upgrade, but the card back is very disappointing.

It's a bit dull but at least it shows him with the cape.  I think a Falcon shot would not have it?  But I know what you mean.  I think for the wave the Skiffmaster looks the best.  Then again I've been wanting this figure for a long time.  I'm just hyped to finally be getting it. 

The photo used for the Lando cardback is the same one used for the original vintage POTF figure...

This will be the first POTF figure in the TVC line, nicely done.

Not a fan of these mixed movie waves, the PT figures make this somewhat of a yawn wave.

Just completed another great deal with Michael. Quick shipping and easy to talk out details. Definitely go with Dr. P, he's highly recommended!

A nod to the vintage design would be nice, Hasbro could do alternate heads one with the headset and one without. Here's how one with a headset could look (the head is from the TSC Endor Soldier), a custom I made over 4 years...

Something like this with better articulation and improved helmet would be a great nod to both the vintage figure and the cardback itself.

Thanks guys, it was a good year for vintage for me. Hopefully next year will be better.

McMetal - I hope you get that worked out with the Ewok Battle Wagon. Very suspect activity by the seller, more proof that using eBay is hazardous.

Dale - thanks for answering the question on the AT-AT Driver variant, you beat me to the punch. I was doing some online searching for proof of the variant and surprisingly couldn't find much even though I knew of it for years.

As for the Jedi Luke Snap Cape, according to this variation list on the Archive, the Snap Cape did come with the Green saber. I know the RS link posted references it, but I don't hold the RS Vintage guide highly when it comes to variations as it disregards, ignores, or even attempts to discredit a lot of documented variants. It is good though for quality pictures, so it does have its uses.

The entire ROTJ wave line would be in my opinion the very best of the Vintage Collection. In fact I think it's Hasbro's best wave of figures ever - great assortment of characters, detailing, sculpting, articulation, and features make this wave downright awesome. If Wedge had made this wave, it would have been legendary!

Also add in the Target exclusive Hoth (Attack on / Defense of) battle packs, for $40 you get 3 great figures and excellent vehicles/diorama pieces. A pretty good deal considering 3 figures cost approx $21 individually so the AT-ST and Cannons are less than $20! Quite the value if you ask me.

Lots of great pickups lately from everyone. I thought I'd share my scores from CV and WizardWorld Chicago this past summer. Most of these figures are upgrades others are variants I needed. What's especially nice is that with the exception of the Yak-Face, I didn't pay more than $10 for any of the figures below...

R2-D2 (came in an opened baggie), Super clean Boba Fett, Molded Boot Rebel Soldier

Red-Logo AT-AT Driver, Admiral Ackbar, Snap Cape Jedi Luke (actually had the cape already, just scored the minty fig & weapons)

Hong Kong dark stripe Logray, Klaatu Skiff Guard, 8D8


Baggies! AT-AT Commander & Prune Face

Other pickups not pictured include a POTF General Lando with blaster which was used to complete my POTF Endor Luke. Also a funny pickup was a POTF2 Jedi Luke that came with ROTJ Endor Leia's helmet & poncho.

Only 2 more figures for a complete loose collection, maybe 2011 will finally be the year...

Just like at retail, it's holiday clearance time here at my house. New items and any which are still available are listed above and I'm now offering the following deals...

* Buy 10 or more items and get 30% off!!!

You've got another PM in your inbox.


The biggest issue I have with the Han is that they put the re-tooling on the wrong part. Instead of giving him a new head, they should have re-tooled the torso - Han's shirt was buttoned all the way up during the medal ceremony. It's great to see the VOTC sculpt back out, but this could have been done better.   :'(

Check your K-Marts for $50 AT-ATs kids + the $5 off coupon doesn't hurt.   :)

Awesome, thanks for posting this iFett! I saw it right before I left work this evening and after striking out at a couple of stores the 3rd time was the charm. With the sale and the coupon, I scored an AT-AT for $50, saving $60 off the regular price + tax. This is no doubt the deal of the year.

next word: spoon

The 12" Fett is very popular, sells out fast. I was lucky to get 1 for myself.  ;D

Yeah, they're running $150+ on evilbay at the moment ::)  Thought about snagging one then thought better of it.

I saw them at CV running for $250, crazy!

It's been a week since CV came and went and now that's I've finally wound down from that I wanted to share some thoughts...

* I should have paid attention as to who was all coming to CV, would have been nice to meet some of the JD crew I didn't meet @ C3.

* Thursday for me was the best day for deals at the vendors, scored some great vintage pickups including a mint Boba Fett for $6! Thursday was also the day to catch up with a lot of old friends - Curto, Niubniub, old Listserv and BHC folks - as well as meeting new folks like Jayson, the Hasbro team, and several people at the Yakface/SWAN party. The Yak/SWAN team did a fantastic job for their party, it was a great atmosphere with loads of fun.

* Got to sit front row for the One Man SW Trilogy, that was a great show. The guy running it does a fantastic job of hamming it up and expressing visualizations without props. The control of lines by the con staff for this show was a bit hampered by the humongous line for Mark Hamill. My only complaint for the show was the poor handling of some of the lines, especially the entry line everyday.

* Huge props to the Belgium propmasters for bringing their full scale TIE Interceptor and Millennium Falcon Outrider interior. The details on all of their pieces were fantastic and they deserve all the kudos they were receiving throughout the weekend. The same goes for the Rebel Legion and their Snowspeeder and the crew who put together the Jabba/Cantina scene - I could never get in to the scene the line was always so long!

* The various panels were fantastic - Gus, Chris G, Duncan, and everyone else involved put together intriguing discussions on the various topics. I especially enjoyed the "Filming Locations" panel as I found out lots of details about various sets that I never knew - I always thought the Lars Homestead hut was an actual building in Tunisia, turns out it wasn't. A shame though that so many people were only interested in the cereal boxes and not the content of the panels, it made for some rather rude exits at the end of one of the panels I was in.

* Dave Filoni is AWESOME! If you were there and went to any of his sessions, especially the Saturday Clone Wars session, you understand why I say this. Do NOT hide what is inside! Can't wait for Season 3 to begin, Dathomiri Nightsisters, hell yeah!

* The entire Hasbro team deserves kudos as well, they were very open and willing to discuss whatever topic was on people's mind. Their displays were over the top cool, the Build-A-Droid trading idea was great, and getting to play with the R/C Hailfire Droid was sweet. Also getting to see a few hints at the sculptor's (Dave something or another :P) booth was cool - 2011 Han headsculpt was a big surprise, likely the Bespin Han since Derryl went all "no comment" on it. :) It was also interesting to sit on their panel to get an idea how it is ran, too bad they went too long would have liked to hear questions from the media.

Though by Sunday I was beat and had no desire to walk the halls any further, I wish CV had not ended. It was a great time and a stellar effort put on by everyone involved.

i'm the only one reading the presentation slide expansively to say that this will be part of an assortment of OT vehicles...

During the presentation, this slide was at the end and time was short, so they just mentioned this one set.  But yes, the slide does say "Saga Vehicles with Figure", which could mean anything.

It could mean a new exclusive assortment of new sets from the movies ('Saga' usually means all six movies, not just OT).  Or, it could be like the last time TRU carried an exclusive "Saga Vehicles with Figure" assortment, which ended up being just a repainted STAP and repainted Speeder Bike.

In other words, you may be right that there will be more, but since there is a high likelyhood that the other sets will just be more repaints/repack sets, no one really cares enough to comment on it.

This set is definitely part of the TRU exclusive deluxe vehicles that started late last year / early this year with the STAP and Speeder Bike. I personally saw no hints of what the other OT "item" is going to be, but I'm hoping Jesse's right and it's an update to the VME, that wold be so sweet! More than likely though we'll see another speeder bike with either Luke or Leia.
