We’ve been sent word via Jason H. that his local Naperville, IL Walmart has an endcap of the Vintage Collection Jabba’s Palace Adventure Sets. A quick check via brickseek shows 11 Walmarts in IL with stock on hand. Also of interest is that he also found the Tatooine Skiff at the same store, yet no stock shows on Brickseek for that location.
Forum member Joosk has shared some concept TVC cardbacks that’s he created in our forums. Check them out here.
Personal Note: These are awesome… but sadly, it seems doubtful Hasbro is going to explore adding this kind of variety of figures in The Vintage Collection… but we can dream, right?
Yes, you read that correctly there is a Sith Jet Trooper that is different than the standard Sith Trooper that is coming in wave 2. The Sith Jet Trooper looks to be identical to the First Order Jet Trooper (above) that was revealed at D23, only cast in red.
As we revealed previously, the back of the TVC Luke Skywalker (Yavin) figure depicts the figures from the first wave character released in Force Friday. Until I have a clearer image, I can share that the above design for the figure coded named “Cairo Axer” is the Knight of Ren shown above. The figure clad in black (it’s hard to tell if it is a mix of soft and plastic goods for his cloak and long tabards that hang in front), has dusty/sandy weathering applied heavily on the bottom edges of the figure (legs and clothing) and slowly fades to black as you move up the figure. He is simply labeled as “Knight of Ren”.
U.K. retailer Comics & Cocktails has posted the first “unofficial” official image of the upcoming TVC Luke Skywalker (Yavin) #151 figure. Note the slight tweak to the packaging design. Thanks to BossksBounty for the heads up.
Update: On the reverse side of this card back reveals Rey, Sith Jet Trooper, Zorii Bliss, Knight of Ren, and Xwing Luke.
There have been a couple reports going around over the past few weeks regarding the wave breakdown for the first assortment of TVC figures available for Triple Force Friday. I held off on reporting it as I wasn’t convinced in what was being stated (namely the inclusion of Yavin Ceremony Luke), but I can now “unofficially” report that Wave 1 looks to be as shown in the graphic above.
This new also confirms to a degree that there is NO Luke Skywalker X-wing Pilot packed with the rumored/unofficially announced TVC X-wing.
