Image Bank: VC93 Darth Vader

By Mike — Thursday, April 5, 2012

Let's get this out of the way. That cardback is infallible like a holy relic and brings geeky tears to my eyes.

Image Bank: VC94 Imperial Navy Commander

By Mike — Thursday, April 5, 2012

Imperial Navy Commander? Death Star Trooper? Why not keep it traditional planet obliterating evil with Death Squad Commander? The cardback is beautifully and nostalgically Kenner and the figure itself is certainly the best iteration of this character yet.

Image Bank: VC95 Luke Skywalker (Hoth Outfit)

By Mike — Monday, April 2, 2012

I've been waiting for this Luke Hoth to ride the awesome Target Vintage Tauntaun. In many ways, he looks great, super articulated, and a decent head likeness. It's the opening scene from The Empire Strikes Back. How can you get any more iconic than that?
