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.
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.

If you have a Kmart in your area, you may want to head there quick to see if they have any Scanning Crew sets yet – as stores have dropped the price down to $10 per set through 4/19! Be aware though that it’s unconfirmed if this is a national sale or not.
Of note, their clearance toys are an additional 50% off through 4/19 – there are some great buys to be had, mostly non-Star Wars items; but the 31″ Vader is currently marked down for a very low price too.
