Some lucky collectors have had a nice early Thanksgiving treat at their doorsteps this week – the new Comic Pack figures! This final wave represents some of Hasbro’s finest work in this line, making it even more of a shame that this line wasn’t handled better.
Check out some loose images of the figures from this wave after the jump!
Note – Unfortunately many collectors are reporting that their orders have been moved back to December.
Reports are coming in that collectors are scoring the latest waves of animated figures this past week, mostly at Wal-Mart.
While prowling the pegs for Vintage Gamorreans, I saw some of the new Clone Wars figures firsthand, and was more impressed with these than most of their recent offerings… check out a few loose pics and judge for yourself if Hasbro is stepping up the quality on this line here.
Hasbro also sends word detailing the release of the upcoming Vintage 9-Pack.
It’s a very exciting time for Star Wars as the extraordinary Target exclusive Vintage 9-pack will be going on sale soon (Nov. 28th). There are two important things to note with this set. First, this set will be more limited than some of our other recent exclusives. Second, Target (and we) are so excited about the Vintage collection overall and these 3-packs that we have decided to keep this “collection within a collection” idea going at Target. Another wave of 3 3-packs will be coming in Spring and like these, they follow the Vintage character lineups. We think this an exciting development, and thanks to Target’s support, hopefully fans will be treated to even more in this series. Thanks again for the support and be sure to get to Target soon. Happy Holidays – the Hasbro Star Wars team.
There you have it! Start looking for this exclusive set next week.

Back in 2005, Hasbro’s ROTS Clone Trooper sculpt was amazing. Here we are now in 2010, and Hasbro is now using a new mold, with a removable helmet for the Vintage line Clone Troopers.
But is this really a step forward in terms of the aesthetics of the figure, or did Hasbro regress with the new mold?
Decide for yourself after the jump!
