Variation hunters rejoice/commit seppuku. Despite Hasbro’s insistence that running changes are too hard to manage, it appears that another switcheroo has been made in the kid targeted Saga Legends line. Joining Obi-Wan and the Battle Droids is Darth Vader (SL06) which now sports the “500th Vader” sculpt. Initial production runs of this Legends release included a repack of the TLC BD08 sculpt.

Yakface Forum Member “darth_sidious” reports that upon opening his newest Clone Wars wave 3 figures, he discovered the return of the $5 Clone Cash coupons valid toward the purchase of a vehicle. As you may recall, Clone Cash was inserted into Clone Wars figures last year when the packaging changed over and I guess it was successful enough to warrant a return.

There have been forgivable instances in the past where Hasbro’s white armored military (clones and stormies) end up yellowing over time.
But over the past year you may have found that more and more figures that are brand new and still hanging on the pegs are suffering from this (look closely next time you are at a store – there is a good chance you’ll notice this on the new Legends Clone Troopers and perhaps even some Clone Wars figures).
Is Hasbro trying to save a buck by using cheaper plastic that turns parts of these figures yellow and sometimes even green right after they are produced?
Sound off with your thoughts in the Yakface Forums.
