The Vintage Collection / Re: The Vintage Collection Returns - Spring 2018
« Last post by Brian on October 6, 2017, 08:25 PM »
Yeah I'm fine with the repacks too, and honestly like it was said that's just how the line works these days. I'm also ok with a somewhat limited line, because I couldn't keep up with a 50 figure at $13 each pace anyway.

I'm also in the camp of loving OT first and foremost, but that isn't necessarily all I want to see either. Honestly I was just looking at my OT figure case today and was thinking how fleshed out they've really gotten those movies. Always more to see, and finishing off the originals would be great, but I think the newer movies like TFA, Rogue One, TLJ, etc need the SA figure help much more since that is when the 5 POA stuff came back full force.

I am glad the VC line is returning, and it will probably be successful. I will not be collecting it in any major way. That's mostly my own personal situation re: collecting/space. I will definitely be buying to open in some cases and in very select cases, to leave carded.

The calendar is looking kind of jammed up for Hasbro in the year or so with two movie releases, and associated product lines.  And I think 2019 is going to be a bit more fertile for the Vintage Collection. 

There's a brief window for TVC to roll out following the theatrical release of THE LAST JEDI in early 2018... before the HAN SOLO line gets launched in the spring.  I think that's when we're going to see the figures that have been revealed, along with the tank from ROGUE ONE.  The HS line will probably be the primary line for Q2 and Q3 2018.  And have you wondered why there's no Falcon in the TLJ line?  I bet there will be one in the HS line.  But the TVC line?  I bet it gets some more releases in the fall, complete with upgraded sculpts to figures that were part of the TLJ and HS lines.

With the release of Episode IX now pushed back to December of 2019 from the previously scheduled May release?  I think that opens up some merchandising options for Hasbro with the product line for the first half of 2019.  And that might be the prime time for The Vintage Collection.

I'm ok buying for the cardback but maybe that's just me.  I mean people wishing for more new are just burying their heads in the sand on how the line works at this point.  Black series has really been no different and it goes to show this line isn't the great resurgence of collector focused 3.75" being a mainstay.  It's a lot better than we have been getting with an "exclusive", and poorly handled at best, line that also included repacks.

And the tank is a nice "big ticket item" too as a companion to it.  Wish it had a vintage box.

I heard some are saying "OT focused is what we want!" And I don't agree.  I mean I want OT too but I like EU if it's on the table, I like some PT, and I'd love some rogue one figures!  Lots of them actually.  Likewise I'd take lots of sequel trilogy figures done this way like a nice Hux or a generic officer, a pilot or two using Poe as a base figure, good versions of any main character like Finn or whatever, resistance soldier...

It's a shame that some people really feel they speak for everyone when they do anything but.  ::)

Collector's Tips / Re: Selling a Collection

Thanks for the thoughts. I think i would just like to unload all at once and save the hassle. I know i could probably get more parting it out but i think my time is more valuable. I just have to find someone who wants to buy it all.

I sold off all my DCUC figures and kept only the Super Powers figures. Loved the original line as a kid.

The saddest part is that i think this is more entertaining than what the Walking Dead has become.

I will be furious if we don't see his green lightsaber ever again.

Mine had something like tissue paper around the astromech figure 2-pack, and more around the BB unit 4-pack.  The cardback was flush against the 4-pack and in good shape.

It would be nice if that was the standard for packing from Disney.
