Image Bank Review: VC98 Grand Moff Tarkin

By Mike — Friday, June 1, 2012

With Grand Moff Tarkin never being released in the Vintage Kenner line despite being a key character in the film,  finally having a Vintage Collection style Star Wars card with a photo of Peter Cushing's iconic portrayal should be a day long remembered for collectors. But Hasbro made some design decisions on the action figure which are a few pegs below ideal. The head sculpt is unmistakably Cushing and one that's absolutely the best yet. But the inclusion of a soft goods skirt and a uniform that's probably too green takes away points on what's otherwise a superb figure. We'll take the mouse droid anytime of day though.
