Another week and another new review here at JediDefender.com
This time around we're taking a look at another in the Premium "Vintage" Saga Collection of figures... A Vintage that not everyone wanted, but now that he's out I'm sure we'll all be happy to own him... Greedo!
Clicky Button, Ready Review
So you thought Hasbro was done putting Greedo figures on the shelf? Wrong... But thankfully they have made the definitive version of this character with his "Vintage" incarnation. If they re-use that Commtech Sculpt they should be beat with piles of old Greedo figures I think. Though, here it is in 2006 and we're seeing COmmtech Han get re-used... again... and no VOTC version re-issued, so is it really that far-fetched to think we'll likely see Commtech Greedo repainted again?
Still, at least we're getting a definitive Greedo NOW... ANd what a load of figure to love. A great felt vest, a nice new spiffy holster for an all-new film-accurate blaster pistol... And articulation galore.
And really one of the pluses to Greedo, and something that makes plunking another $10 down on yet another Greedo figure, is that there are so many Rodians (especially in A New Hope) roaming around Mos Eisley in the same outfit, that I don't feel like I need to retire all my old Greedo figures... THey just all become nameless Rodian thugs for Jabba's SE scene or they fit nicely in with the drunkards in the Cantina.
No muss, no fuss, no figures put into storage. PLus all the repaints of Greedo look different to some extent so they blend nicely together.
Enjoy this figure... Hopefully Hasbro sees fit to re-release THIS one if they feel the urge to put Greedo on the pegs again down the road. There really should be no other out at this point.
