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?
