Of course, you now have two The Vintage Collection "Darth Vaders" on the pegs, the other being VC08, but that shouldn't confuse anyone, right?
Hasbro corrected the paint error on VC15 Clone Trooper's helmet with the appropriate line around the cap. This particular sample was found at a Target store in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Offered before many of you were born, Rocket Firing Boba Fett is something of a holy grail, a legend not just in Star Wars, but in the world of toy collecting in general.

Ah, the tale of two Vaders, also known as Vader's aplenty for the holiday pegs. First releasing the removable helmet figure from 2008's The Legacy Collection (BD08), Hasbro run changes it for the more ESB appropriate version from 2006's The Saga Collection.

Hasbro sure likes to make barely-different troopers, like this Scout Trooper from 2007. Hasbro put out a big exclusive boxed set at Target and painted each Biker Scout differently-- just to keep you busy. (Or to make your dioramas better, perhaps.) Either way, how is it? Excellent. Read on, dudes!
It's the first-ever modern-era Wicket which, at nearly 12 years old, is a lot less modern. This was one of the first two modern Ewoks, setting the bar for the slow drip to follow for the next few years. He was just upgraded, but how does the original stack up? Read on!

Size matters not, yet Yoda comes packin with a firing cannon! First released in 2005 for the Revenge of the Sith collection, this version comes with a removable plastic molded cape, which hinders his poseability when he has it on, but has decent articulation underneath.
Since the 1970s, Boba Fett has been a major presence in fan imaginations and toy boxes. This younger incarnation of the character has stunning articulation, good accessories, and, sadly, no helmet. It's a big improvement over the other prequel-inspired figure, but should you get him? Read on!
The "guts" of this sculpt was from the Sith Evolutions figure from 2005, which Hasbro retooled along with a new headsculpt for The 30th Anniversary Collection in 2008. Now that The Vintage Collection figure is considered the frontrunner, this SL version, with its limited arm articulation but not too bad a head sculpt, is relegated to secondary Battle Pack filler status. You know, for the kids.
Galen Marek or Starkiller, the Secret Apprentice, or whatever you want to call him has a lot of names, and even more costume changes. This 2010 release is based on a Jango Fett mold-- and it's pretty great! Read on to see what you're missing.
