Over a year ago, we began multiple rounds of fan voting by Yakface readers to help identify just which figures our readers wanted to see Hasbro make the most from The Vintage Collection and The Black Series.
The final numbers are in, and we have posted them in our forums. I think it’s safe to say that the interest in the Original Trilogy still holds very strong based on these results, and both 3.75″ and 6″ totals came to the same “Most Wanted” figure.
Find out which character that is, and check out the full results at the links below!
THE VINTAGE COLLECTION
THE BLACK SERIES
We all know that Luke Skywalker experienced great conflict in The Last Jedi, but I don’t think we were expecting Hasbro’s photo-real tech to emulate such a range of emotions on the new Luke Skywalker figure (VC 146).
For those that have gotten their hands on this figure, what are your impressions? I have two of them now… one looks really good and I love it; but the other one… not so much.
Let us know your thoughts after the jump!
UPDATE – New expressions added!
This morning while out and about, I swung by my local Ross and while I can’t seem to luck into finding the red Resistance A-Wing, I did come across some deluxe Force Link sets for $6.99.
Good luck, happy toy hunting, and let us know what you’re seeing at your local discount stores!
Be on the lookout if you ordered the TVC Crait Luke Skywalker wave from Hasbro Pulse, as they are arriving on doorsteps now. Thanks to forum member darth_sidious for the report!
You may recall that back in March, Rogue One figures were showing up at Dollar Tree stores for just $1.00 each.
More Star Wars product has been showing up at various Dollar Tree stores recently for just a buck, such as Hot Wheels Battle Rollers and Black Series Titanium Vehicles.
As always, your mileage and experiences may vary. Good luck and let us know of your finds (or lack thereof)!

Hasbro has recently released two very good Stormtrooper figures in the TVC line… ANH Han Solo (removable helmet w/ photo-real technology; Target exclusive) and a basic trooper that marches right out of 2016’s Rogue One.
Now that I have a few of each in my collection, I have my own preference and know which one I plan to “army-build” – but what does everyone else think, or plan to do? Share your thoughts here or in our forums after the jump!
If you ordered TVC Wave 6 from Entertainment Earth, be paying attention to your email updates and shipping notifications! Forum member Lance Quazar shared the above photo as he received his order today.
It looks like it’s going to be a fun summer with great new product (at least for online purchases)!
Our final polling in The Vintage Collection figure wish-list will be wrapping up on June 3. So if you haven’t gotten your votes in, now is the time.
Thank you everyone for your participation, and we’ll be having a special roundup of the final results for both The Vintage Collection and The Black Series in June!
