2010 the vintage collection wave 3
return of the jedi
wave 3 of 2010 vintage series features characters
from return of the jedi, the last movie of the original trilogy. this
series has some of the best figures the vintage collection has to offer
and they are all brand new sculpts. the wave originally suppose to
include vc20 yoda and vc28 wedge antilles but both were delayed. vc20
yoda is revised and released in 2011 with wave 5 (wave 1 for 2011) while
vc28 only see limited release as part of wave 3 revision case.
vc21 gamorrean guard
this is all new figure and one of the most popular
with collectors and fans. the figure has nice fur cloth part and
excellent likeness. hasbro has done superb job with most of the
aliens in the vintage line and pig guard is one of the finest. the card
back is a replica of the original from 1985.
vc22 admiral ackbar
this is also another brand new figure and another
excellent figure for this wave and the vintage line. cardback for this
figure is also replica of the original kenner vintage line.
vc23 luke skywalker (jedi knight
this is also brand new figure of luke skywalker
however while the cardback is from jabba's palace scene the figure is
from the later luke in final duel with his father. hasbro later
changed the cardback and make this figure "endor's capture" version.
vc24 wooof (klaatu)
a long await figure update of the vintage figure and
another excellent addition for the vintage collection. the figure comes
with nice cloth outfit and near perfect sculpt. the cardback is
also replica of the original klaatu (wooof is the name of this
particular character, klaatu is actually the specie name) figure from
this is another brand new figure of r2-d2 depicting
him as jabba's prisoner serving as sail bark's bartender. though the back of the
card claim this is the first time bartender r2-d2 is made available, hasbro actually did this version of the droid back in 2004. this
figure is however comes with many more accessories including pop-up
sensor scope and also pop-up lightsaber. the cardback picture is all new
and not the pop-up lightsaber nor the sensor scope version from 1980's.
it seems hasbro wants to make this the ultimate version that encompass
vc26 rebel commando
another excellent update figure of rebel commando.
the figure has excellent sculpt and comes complete with cloth trench
coat and removable helmet. the only draw back is the fact that
hasbro decided to put facial hair on this particular figure and thus
render him useless for army-building.
this is another all new figure of wicket and the
first ewok to appear in the vintage collection. to make up for the
small size, hasbro include extra accessories which is a nod to wicket
appearance in tv animated series.
