SDCC 2023: Hasbro Vintage Collection Cassian Pipeline Reveal

The VC 262 “Andor” head fits great on VC 130 Cassian (also released in TBS), no customizing necessary.

During the Hasbro Star Wars panel and follow up discussions, it was revealed that Hasbro plans for several “repacks/retools” in TVC, including the TBS/TVC Rogue One Cassian Andor figure again (but with the added touch of photo real deco).

Personal Note: If Hasbro has the need to put this figure out again, it may be better suited for a 3pk, and they can invest in new tooling in the other figures in the set, such as Baze Malbus and Ruescott Melshi. Or, are you happy with just swapping a VC262 Cassian head onto the older figure and would rather Hasbro avoid this figure altogether? What say you?

Next week, a more controversial repack topic… TFA Finn.
