The Vintage Collection / Re: The Future of Star Wars Collecting?
« on: February 12, 2023, 03:38 PM »
Interesting discussion on this on social media recentlyÖ I donít think TVC survives without some corner cuts.  I know itís not popular with collectors and sometimes Iím annoyed by them too, but I think we donít get much without it Iím afraid.

Iíd be cool with a TIE Defender but itís kinda obscure at this point imo.  I mean I love it but Rebels isnít very current and TIE Fighter even less so.  I dunno what is good to rally behind besides Cantinas and Death StarsÖ Cantina in the realm of the JP is what Iíd probably prefer right now, just personally.  But Iím open to whatever theyíd throw at us I guess.

I got several of the set to have some NEDs  to hang around.  Agreed it sucks he doesnít have his hammer, and the bounty hunter droidís blasters and bandolier being molded on it kinda sucks.  The lack of joints on the probot sucks tooÖ and the cherry on top was my last set I got, the NEDís foot broke off quite easily.  I agree Ryan, the plastic on these feels off.

The astromech was the cream of the crop in a way.  For less than retail the set is quite nice despite the gripes.  For full price the set is eh.  Iíll take it but itís def not incredible.  The NED is nice despite one breaking on me so easily and Iíll happily have a little force for loading cargo.

Iím sending the broken one back for a replacement.  Kinda hoped theyíd lemme keep it but no dice there.

Having a complete set of these seemed like something I was gonna just brush off but my buddy got me the Chopper while he was down yonder and my other buddy wound up with an extra of the rare BBÖ a surprise to be sure, but a welcome one.

Word is these are sold out at both coasts.  Friend says theyíve been out for weeks in Orlando and another friend told me they sold out second day at Disney Land during the con. 

I have all but the rare two.  Bummed on chopper but Iíll live.

Pretty sure the Echo trooper peg is much smaller. 😕

That's what she said.



*sigh* 😑

And yes, dream killing is my natural state.  That said, echo base trooper holsters make reasonable RFT holster substitutes.  Buddy showed me those holsters fit nice.

Add me to the ďI wish we got female and alienĒ Rebel extras here and there too.  They made a RFT female for the old west end games minis and I would love a female fleet trooper figure ever since I saw that mini.

I was irked by the limits too.  I skipped the Tantive iv cuz Iíve got a ton but I got some custom fodder and hoth rebels.  Hooray.

I do not believe the peg is same size.  Pretty sure the Echo trooper peg is much smaller. 😕

I think itís a customÖ I got a ton of that body and did a couple customs.  I could be misremembering tho and need to buy this now.  ::)

Def appreciated.  Getting hard to keep everything straight.

Friends secured me one of these at the show so I canít wait.  Just wish theyíd given a heads up because it became a pain to track down for some.  People arrived early to go to the park only to find they held this till later.

Another design I really enjoy.  Makes a cool looking R2.  I tend to pass the hats off to friends who display their droids at the holidays.
