Take 2007's TAC Evolutions Jango Fett, retool his wrist gauntlets, swap out the JT-12 jetpack for a more colorful Z-6 pack with a removable "firing" dummy rocket, add some minor deco changes and a removable poncho, and there you have the "new" Vintage Collection Jango Fett. We're quite frankly slightly underwhelmed by Hasbro's effort, especially for a character that's worthy of a good "ultimate" upgrade. Keeping the figure carded in the awesome Kenner inspired card is probably a good option if you have the EVO version already.
If only all peasants dressed this finely. With swappable headpieces, a nicely done soft goods shawl, and detailed paint deco, the all new Padmé Amidala in Peasant Disguise makes a worthy partner to just also released Peasant Anakin. While it would be nice if someday Hasbro figured out a way to make a gowned Padmé sit, we're really not complaining. She's quite stunning.
He's vastly improved from the original "Peasant Disguise" Anakin pictured on the cardback, with nice articulation and great paint detail, particularly on the tunic. The new Vintage AOTC era Anakin Skywalker came out much better in plastic than the pre-release Hasbro product shots, and we highly recommend upgrading your 2002 clunker for the newer, sleeker 2010 model today.
Like a grape Otter Pop of perfection, the new Vintage Collection Zam Wesell impresses with a highly detailed sculpt and an evolutionary jump from the 2002 pre-posed, action featured Saga version. You've now got an almost spot on facial likeness of Leanna Walsman, removable helmet, swappable heads, and super-articulation. This one will be the definite version for awhile, folks. So make sure to pick her up!
There have been a few flavors of the Geonosian Warrior, this one came with the boxed set of Delta Squad a few years ago. He has a big gun and purple wings-- oh, and some clones you might want. Is he worth picking up in his own right? Read on!
The Nautolan Jedi Master receives the ultra Vintage Collection treatment featuring an all new sculpt, super articulation, and a removable soft goods cloak. While Kit Fisto has had quite a few iterations in the past, this version has to be considered the best yet. The paint detail is quite nice and the poseability makes most older versions obscure. He'll also fit nicely in the new Wal-Mart exclusive Starfighter.
It looks like a soda can and is named the Retail Droid, or LR-57 Combat Droid. Ridiculous, or awesome? I'd say this release is a little of each, and is worth snagging as part of a pretty good Battle Pack. Read on!
The second (and much improved) animated Magnaguard is pretty fantastic-- not as good as the Vintage one, but still exquisite. It's lanky and chunky, has some great gear, and an excellent sculpt. Read on!
Back before we called them "soft goods" Kenner enlisted its girls division to make this great Princess Leia Organa figure in an all-cloth white dress. Wow! For once, articulation wasn't restricted by the outfit. Should you get one today? Well, maybe. Read on!
This Lando Calrissian redeco is notable for being bad-- actually, one of Hasbro's worst. Target sold a big Battle Pack with this figure, which was pretty bad, and a Luke redeco that's even worse. Why so awful? Read on!
Not as exciting as yesterday's AT-RT figure, this AT-RT Driver was a Target exclusive in a unique green color. I like the green lenses in particular, but still, it hasn't really made any appearances as of yet. Is it worth a look? Read on!
Hey kids, it's ARF Trooper Boil! Not many Clones get more than one figure, but this one did-- and just look at that detail! Unique camo, a special tampo on his helmet, and great articulation make this one of the best figures you likely passed on late last year, because you are a bad person. Read on!
