Will the Return of TVC Change Your Purchases?
« on: February 27, 2018, 04:06 PM »
Was thinking about this today, does the return of the Vintage Collection change your collecting of the 5 POA or elsewhere? I mean, at this point they just don't have the coverage of characters to compete (for example Solo), but maybe eventually if things take off.

I understand why both exist, but I sure miss the simpler days of just a single Star Wars line that was more uniform (with maybe a "Collection 1" or "Collection 2"). I know I'll probably get both, or at least some of both.

We'll see how things transpire this year for TVC, but it changes my collecting habits re: 6 inch. I was never heavy into them, though I have a fair number. I've dropped off substantially this last year and won't be collecting many at all with a heavy shift back to 3.75. Hoth Leia, Zuckuss, probably Young Lando... I'm forgetting someone. Gammy.

Dengar? 4-LOM?

actually it will be interesting to see if the return of TVC effects 6" sales (once/if they get to new figures)?

I'm guessing not.  It seems there is a market for both.

Nope.  I'll still be buying stuff I like, whether that is the 3.75" 5POA or the SA 3.75" SA figures. :)

Same as Jeff on that ? More or less.  There is going to be 5poa we likely donít get in TVC and Iím buying stuff and articulating it or just leaving it as it is if Iím liking it fine without altering it.  I canít see that changing. 

Iím sure Iíll skip things I donít like though or wait for sales if it isnít terrible but doesnít interest me terribly.

I will most likely buy more figures and from places other than Walmart.

The only 5-POA figure I bought was Admiral Raddus, because I wanted him on my Rebellion shelf. So my collecting habits won't really change in that regard.

Yes, only in that I'll be keeping a set of vintage figures carded.

Iíll be dropping the 6 inch stuff entirely. And waiting to see on 5 POA. With the exclusive Rey coming to WM, Iíll skip the Island Journey Rey.

I still buy one of everything that's unique... but one thing TVC has done is get me more excited about what's on the way than I have been in a long time.  If they actually start doing high quality stuff and remembering that the OT is what started it all and is most of our favorites... the whole thing is starting to feel revitalized.

If anything, I'll probably buy more. I bought a single digit number of 5POA figures (I'm of the opinion that the TFA and Rogue One lines had some of the worst action figures Hasbro has ever produced), and since the WM Black Series line had maybe 4 new figures a year, with only 2 of the 8 figures actually showing up in my local stores, I can't see myself buying less than what I was.

6 inch is a different story. I'll probably cut back and just import the Figuarts stuff from Japan but we'll see.
