Pipelines for this era include:
There might be others I've missed...

Along with the Enoch/Night Troopers pack, Ezra Bridger (Ahsoka) was also pipelined at London Comic Con ->

This one was hard to do.  Probably 75% of these should already have been done.

Agree.  Have to think about my list, but it's likely going to be full of figures that should have been no brainers for TVC already - Cobb, Peli, Baylon, Shin, etc.

They’re on Amazon now too.  Got a sponsor link Jeff?  #sponsoredlink

Also sounds like June 1st, 2024 will be the date for them on Shop Disney.

I agree - VC45 was a nice upgrade at the time but those skinny legs? Yuck.

Looks like we are getting a new helmet sculpt on this set already.

Looking closer at the pics, these might not be new helmets, but whole new non-removable helmet-heads?  I don't think Hasbro has shown any pics of them sans helmets.

I’m passing unless someone can prove that Ahsoka Trooper is noticeably different than the one I bought single carded.

These are supposed to use the new VC269 clone sculpt (with what looks like a new helmet sculpt, as Ryan pointed out).  The VC248 Ahsoka Clone single carded release used the old VC45 clone sculpt. 

VC45 sculpt is skinnier in the legs, has a different codpiece/waist, and it looks like the new one has slightly better paint apps, though it's always unsure how the final production stuff will look.

I can't tell... I got the link from Hasbro PR.

The listed price of $24.99 makes me think there is some kind of error going on but with Target, who knows...

Premium Members only until 2pm ET:

Also at EE for some reason ->   #sponsoredlink
(use WINTER79 for free shipping on orders over $79)

I'm glad to see this one is still $54.99 at Pulse and EE.  I liked it better when these were in the $40-45 range, but I will take $55 over $60 like Tusken and Imp Officer sets were.

I'm assuming they're $60 plus tax which is a lot for yet more clones.

Hasbro press release (which has been wrong before) says $54.99

(HASBRO/Ages 4 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $54.99 / Available: Summer 2024)

By the end of the Clone Wars, nearly all clones had switched to improved armor, including variant forms used for troopers in specialized roles.

After being so overloaded with pre-orders for a long time, it feels so weird to just have a couple outstanding TVC items pre-ordered

The list has dwindled even further.  I am down to just 5 pre-order figures (R5-D4, Huyang, Dooku, Clone x2), the Jabba/Crumb/8D8 set, and then The Ghost (if that counts as a pre-order).

Hasbro seems to be playing things closer to the vest.  I thought there would be more reveals as part of's "Gift the Galaxy" promo thing, but not much for 3.75" stuff there.  There is a pile of stuff that they've pipeline revealed (15 basic figures, DLX Jango, Clone 4-pack).  There is also the new "Epic Heroes" line that was kind of announced/leaked via etailers.  Still no word on when those will go up for pre-order or how that will affect TVC volume in 2024.

Almost forgot about this... nice to cross three off the list from last time (ANH Leia, Velken Tezeri, Taym Dren-garen).

The Vintage Collection / Re: 2023 Last Figure Standing Poll
« on: November 24, 2023, 04:20 PM »
My biggest gripe of the March Madness poll is that the demographics and voting skews PT/Clone Wars

Do you think that is just because that is the Star Wars era that hits for the main Instagram user base?  I guess maybe the old man collectors (like myself) just aren't on instagram as much as the younger PT/CW set?


ShopDisney has a Black Friday deal = "Take 25% Off select items, Plus Free Shipping on $75" with Code: GIFT

GIFT does not work on the retro-6pack to get 25% off, but if you add the R8-H23 to your cart, you get 25% off R8-H23 and free shipping on the whole order.

Star Wars movies actually making it from idea to production is very rare these days, but here's the latest on this one...

Not much news in there, but at least it confirms this movie is still on for now.
