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?
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.

Courtesy of an astute member of the Rebelscum forums, scans of the latest issue of ToyFare magazine previews the upcoming The Vintage Collection action figures of Barris Offee, Bom Vidin, Weequay, and a brand spankin new upgraded Rebel Fleet Trooper!

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!
