An overseas auction for the upcoming Walmart Exclusive Vintage Collection Rey (Island Journey) #VC122 figure has surfaced on eBay (as well as the exclusive 6″ Black Series Chewbacca and 6″ Mimban Stormtrooper). So, we’ve added the pertinent UPC and SKU info to our expanding Master List for easy reference.
UPDATE: UK collectors can preorder this figure now from In Demand Toys
There is one 3.75″ Black Series figure that has been highly requested for re-release since it was so difficult to find when Walmart held its exclusivity. Collectors can breathe a sigh of relief that the Rogue One Scarif Stormtrooper will be getting the “TVC” treatment. Another character joining the collection is rumored to be Leia in Boushh Disguise. It is unknown if it’s an all-new version or repacked (from 2015) but is probably the latter as the line is balancing repacks with all-new sculpts. Expect these along side Yak Face and Klaatu in 2019*.
*I sure hope these don’t get cancelled.

For better or worse, Hasbro is going to be supplementing the upcoming TVC line with repacks.
But, this could be a good thing if Hasbro is selective about it and picks great figures where demand still exists. That way carded collectors get their TVC fix, while openers get another shot at certain figures too.
Which figures are good candidates for a repack onto a TVC cardback in your eyes? Share your thoughts after the jump!
