Variants

Image Bank: VC56 Kithaba (Red Variant)

By Mike — Sunday, June 24, 2012

We typically like our variants with some point of interest or backstory to them, and while the red bandana Kithaba isn't by any stretch of the imagination a vinyl caped Jawa, the fact that Hasbro changed up to better match the actual character and vintage version is interestingly cool.

Image Bank: VC20 Yoda (Canadian Variant)

By Mike — Thursday, June 14, 2012

We can blame Canada for this cool carded variant of VC20 Yoda. The Jedi Master is packaged in a Return of the Jedi cardback with the iconic photo that was featured in the original Kenner release instead of the more correct, and dare we say not as iconic, Revenge of the Sith card that was distributed here domestically.

Red Kithaba Update

Want to know what the real deal is with that hard to find Kithaba variant? Is it even real or the product of some deviant customizers? We have an update for you!

The Two Faces Of Dr. E

By Mike — Tuesday, April 24, 2012

Variation alert! After first making note about it in our Facebook page, we are able to confirm after a few more reports have surfaced that there is indeed a paint variation with Dr. Evazan's scar.

 

Star Wars Vintage Collection Wedge Variant Discovered

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, May 31, 2011

You thought that all you had to do was to track down one of the presently extremely scarce just-released Wedge Antilles figures?  Well, you're wrong.  Hasbro now has a package variant to be on the watch for, and you can read more about Hasbro salting your wounds at Yakface.com for the full story.

VC13 Consumed by Darth Vader

By Mike — Monday, December 6, 2010

As Hasbro promised, the name tab, cardback, and POP for VC13, formerly known as Anakin Skywalker, is now appropriately called Darth Vader per his transformation and appearance in Mustafar. 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?

 

VC15 Clone Variant/Correction

By Mike — Monday, December 6, 2010

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.

VC09 Fett Variant

By Mike — Thursday, November 25, 2010

It appears Hasbro made a paint modification for the Vintage Collection 09 Boba Fett for more character accuracy. The latest figures shipping with the Return of the Jedi wave has paint changes in the helmet,  from a green outline on the cheek to black, and the blaster tip has changed from silver to black. There are also hue changes in the armor, specifically on the shoulder and knees. Finally, Fett's boots also has an altered paint scheme.

SL Vader Variant

By Mike — Monday, September 27, 2010

Our buddies at Yakface.com report a variant with the SL06 Darth Vader. First released with the BD08 sculpt, recent findings show a helmeted 500th Vader version now hitting the pegs. Happy Hunting!
