Wow, with all the quality updates we've gotten in TVC, I'm surprised Qui-Gon STILL hasn't gotten his flared lightsaber. Well I guess it is vintage, after all.

At sirsteves they asked this question and Hasbro they would look into it. I mean it is very simple just pack the 2002 Saga Saber in with Qui-Gon and be done with it.

Another early image from 2012...


Clicky to check him out!

This time we got a nice look at the Pit Droid, who will come with Ratts Tyerell next year.  Ratts may be the highlight of the pack, but I think this Pit Droid is nice for a couple reasons.

-New/Unique deco
-Nice deco (as Pit Droids go)
-Return of 2-packs?

Check it out!

Me too Jayson.  The deco was, frankly, shocking to me.  Much more realistic than the original PD's save for one here and there.  The 2-pack ones and the ones we got in the 30AC Legends were pretty spick and span though.  Some of the ones that came with pod racers were a little grimier but not much.

Washes are something the line's seen so many cuts in lately that it's nice to see it back like that on something that really clearly benefits from it.

Clicky to buy!

You can pick up the new Pit Droid repaint for $2.99 on Ebay right now, however I have a feeling if you asked on the Hobbystock.cn Website, you could get the Pit Droid there as well, along with picking up the Naboo Pilot for $9.99 and  Ric Olie for $12.99

Save some on shipping that way too maybe, and the prices are lower on the site than Ebay.

I like that little Pit Droid.  I'm pretty happy that Hasbro was able to get us a bonus pit droid with Ratts and Ben Q.  After Wicket and Logray, I wasn't expecting them to give us anything with the Ep1 pod racers so it ws nice to see those little bonuses added. :)

They all look pretty great.  Still mystified at Daultay Dofine, but hey.  Ratts is screaming at his impending death.

I agree. They look nice. It'll be nice to see these on the pegs in the near future... just worried that they'll be that $1 jump in price that always happens around the end/beginning of the year. Then I might have to start scaling down what I buy.  :-\

I wasn't even thinking of another price-hike...  Yeesh.  I can't imagine it, because at this point I think the price is already detrimental to the Vintage line.  Older waves that saw any kind of "normal" distribution are a bit too easy to find...  Wave 6, 5, 4...  I see bits of all 3 of those, and all 3 shipped here fairly normal/steady.  Now when any of those 3 hit, they tend to pegwarm (less wave 4 though since it hit a little less, but the carry-overs from it pegwarm steadily, like the AOTC Clone, or Obi-Wan).

Naboo Royal Guard Character Debut.

Hasbro doesn't even remember what it has  made anymore.

I love the Maul cardback!  There are some good ones in that wave.

Ugh, might snag Maul because of the awesome cloak/accessories. Different enough for me. ::)

I was starting to think I was nuts when I saw that pic at Sandtroopers.  Glad someone else noticed.
