2010 the vintage collection wave 2
revenge of the sith
wave 2 of 2010 vintage series features characters
from revenge of the sith. this is the first time prequel
star wars characters appear on vintage kenner style cards. hasbro
does a good job of picking characters that represent this third movie in the prequel
trilogy. the line up include darth sidious, anakin, obi-wan, grievous,
along with magnaguard droid, clone commander cody and standard clone
trooper (phase 2 version). sandtrooper from a new hope is the lone
new figure not from episode 3 that also ship with this assortment as
filler. there are also foil chase versions of
each of the figures in this assortment.
vc12 darth sidious
this is all new figure and first time we actually
have the character appears as darth sidious (instead of emperor
palpatine). he comes with molded hood and two layered of cloth
cloak. the cardback looks great and depict palpatine during his
duel with yoda.
vc13 anakin skywalker (darth vader)
this is a repack of the recent darth vader (anakin
after he turned to the dark side). the card have him as anakin and
hasbro quickly correct the card name in subsequence waves. (personally
i think he should just be left as anakin but with darth vader or sith
apprentice as subtitle). the card back depict anakin (or vader)
during the duel with obi-wan on mustafar, while the scene is good the picture
select by hasbro is a
bit blurry and end up not looking all that great.
vc15 clone trooper
a revenge of the sith theme would be incomplete
without clone trooper but this is somewhat of a strange choice as pure
white clone phase 2 armor is rather hard to see in the movie. the figure is a
kit-bash from two previous clone trooper figures and the final result is
somewhat mixed. there are
several variants of this particular clone trooper from the cardback
changes to the running changes on the figure. the cardback early
cardback has dull color and somewhat blurry clone images, this was later
changed and the clone has sharper image and with brighter color
background (the yellow is clearly more vibrant). the figure also
has minor change with added
stripes to the helmet.
unfortunately certain batch of the figures have
helmets that turned yellow-greenish color. this figure along with
sandtrooper become the bane of many collectors due to excessive shipment
in many of the subsequence waves.
vc16 obi-wan kenobi
this is another repack of obi-wan from a few years
back. the card back looks good and match well with the vintage
style. strangely hasbro, again, decided to pack obi-wan figure
with his headset accessory which really distract from the overall looks of the
vc17 general grievous
this is also another repack of general grievous
figure but this time he comes with really nice real cloth cape which
really make the figure stand out. this is the first oversize
bubble for the vintage collection line. the cardback photo looks really good
and is definitely one of the better cardback design in this wave.
magnaguard is one of all new figure in the set.
it is among the best figure not just in this wave but in the recent star
wars line. the figure is well articulated and comes with nice real
cloth cape. the card back looks good but the image is heavily cg
looks and can look a little off on the old vintage card.
vc19 clone commander cody
this is another repackage figure from previous year
legacy line. the card back looks really good and go well with the
figure. it is nice to have one of the named clone on vintage card
design. there is also foil chase version of this figure.
this is repack of sandtrooper figure from the dewback
set release in prior year. the figure is nice but the new clean looks
make the figure looks a bit off. the card picture is
good it is very neat to finally have sandtrooper on the original star
wars card. this is the only figure not from revenge of the sith
movie and most likely use to pad the line-up due to two figures being drop from
this figure got repack several times into
subsequence waves with some running changes. the most notable
change is the cardback, later version have darker blue color background.
the one that ship with the later wave 5 also lack the rocket-firing boba
fett offer sticker and coupon insert.
