Tonight we spotlight the amazing custom work of expert customizer Evilivo, who has perfected Hasbro’s 3.75″ K-2SO by giving it a major upgrade in articulation (not to mention an enhanced paint job).
Hopefully we’ll see something along these lines in the Spring with the return of The Vintage Collection… until then (or if Hasbro disappoints), check out the tutorial he created so you can make your own after the jump!
StarWars.com has updated today officially announcing Doctor Aphra as the winner of the Hasbro Fans’ Choice poll. Coming in second was Ahsoka (Star Wars Rebels). Congrats to those that voted for Aphra and thank you to all that participated in the survey.
Look for Doctor Aphra to join the 3.75″ Vintage Collection line in 2018.
StarWars.com has updated today, activating the official Hasbro 3.75″ Fans’ Choice Poll! After asking the fans and culling the lists submitted by nearly two dozen participating fan organizations, the following characters have been selected:
Dr. Aphra, Yak Face (Saelt-Marae), Emperor Palpatine, Sim Aloo, Clone Trooper “Fives” and Ahsoka Tano (Star Wars Rebels)
The winner of this poll will be realized in super-articulated form and released on the Vintage Collection card back in 2018. Vote early, vote often.
We’ve been getting a lot of questions via email and social media regarding the status of the official Hasbro’s Fans’ Choice poll for the 3.75″ Vintage Collection. Per Hasbro press release and StarWars.com’s post, the poll was to have started yesterday (April 26) and run until April 30. As of this post, the poll has yet to go live but we’ll announce it as soon as it does.
The votes have been tabulated and we now have your top 6 characters to submit to Hasbro for the 2017 Vintage Fans’ Choice poll! Click on through to check out the list.
Thank you to all who participated (and followed the rules)!

Voting is now closed and the counting has begun! We will reveal your “Top 6” on Friday after we submit the selections to Hasbro. May the odds be ever in your favor and thanks to all that participated!
UPDATE: Just a bit of info on the tabulation, if you submitted more than one vote from the same email address or social handle, ALL of your votes are eliminated as you are clearly trying to cheat or skew the results. If you posted anything in subject line of your email other than what was instructed, your vote was not counted because “rules”.
Here is a great video from Action Figure Attack on Facebook showing the return of the Vintage Collection at Hasbro panel from Star Wars Celebration. Kudos to Hasbro showing that they really do care. Look for TVC to hit pegs once again in Spring 2018.
Customizer Peakob1 shows off his latest custom figures, as part of his vision of what a 40th Anniversary line should look like from Hasbro. Head on over to the forums to check it all out!
Personal Note: In my humble opinion, these kit bashed repaints honoring the original trilogy blow Hasbro’s 40th Anniversary line out of the water. Imagine figures like these, on vintage-esque cards… ’nuff said.
Stop. Rumor Time. We’ve received a tad bit of intel regarding a future (not necessarily the next) wave of 3.75″ Black Series figures coming to Walmart next year.
Without spilling the beans fully, I can hint that all four will probably be repacks; two of them are potential army builders, one is a very requested figure from the Original Trilogy offered briefly in the Vintage Collection and one is a perennial favorite.
Any guesses? Leave them in the comment section or forums and stay tuned for more vague rumors and cryptic writings (maybe even for Episode VIII) in the coming days.
Jedi Insider alerts collectors (by way of Robot Kingdom) that a new wave of 3.75″ Black Series is coming soon to Walmart. The wave consists of Ahsoka Tano, Admiral Ackbar, Emperor’s Royal Guard and General Lando Calrissian – all of which are repacks from The Vintage Collection.
If the current retail Star Wars offerings have been boring you to death (like they are me!), eBay selling legend tunghori has listed more super articulated army builders at very reasonable prices… and even the amazing TVC Nien Nunb is listed as “in stock” as of this post! If you need him, act fast as quantities appear to be limited.
Several readers have been asking “when will HasbroToyShop open orders for the 6″ Black Series Exclusives from SDCC 2016?” It is a valid question considering Hasbro’s “go live” times have had a track record of unpredictability. Click on through for our breakdown* of the previous five (2001-2015) SDCC exclusives.
