View Full Version : jumbo vintage figures!
I don't own a single one. I've never seen any besides online photos. But ah wants dem! Someday I'd like this collection to be my guilty pleasure.
In the meantime, I'll have to live vicariously through you guys. Who's buying them? Which ones do you have? Show me pictures of your collection!

I've been collecting them and own them all. It's an amazing set for the most part (with a few minor accuracy flaws for some figures). For any fan of the vintage Kenner line, this is quite a set to own if you can afford it. It's becoming harder to find the storage space for them still in packaging, but I'll keep on collecting them for now until they finish producing everything on my wish list. With the introduction of a POTF carded Gamorrean Guard this year, that leads me to believe that one of next year's exclusives (either online or at SDCC) will be Yakface on a POTF card with coin. He's definitely high on my wish list for this line.
Now that they are all but finished with the first 21 and have moved into the ESB/ROTJ era, I expect we'll mainly just get the other Luke/Han/Leia/Lando variants in the line (Bespin Luke seems likely for 2013 to go with Yoda), along with the rest of the bounty hunters and Imperial troopers. The Emperor and Admiral Ackbar also seem like strong choices within the next two years. Beyond that, I don't expect Gentle Giant to reproduce many other figures from the vintage line. The demand really drops after you get all the major fan-demanded ones out. I mean, who really wants the two Bespin Security Guards in this scale? :)
I have been wanting these for awhile now. The price is a little steep but I am hoping to get a few. Not every figure, just the ones to go with my loose vintage collection.

Whenever they produce Bespin Luke, I really hope they offer him on the ESB card with both photo variants, and ideally one Luke with yellow hair and one Luke with brown hair. I'm still disappointed they didn't do a brown hair variant of Tatooine Luke. It would have made a nice online or convention exclusive. But perhaps they still might release him later on.
