2010 the vintage collection wave 4
attack of the clone
wave 4 of 2010 vintage series features characters
from the 2nd prequel movie attack of the clones. this
mark the first time attack of the clones characters are being sold on
vintage kenner-style cards. most of the figures are brand new or
modified of the previously released figures from prior years. the
assortment consists of mostly the main and iconic characters with
exception of collectors - the senate guard. the lack of
clone trooper from this first line-up is a bit puzzling but there is
little doubt at least one will show up in later assortments. (vc45 clone
trooper is phase 1 clone from attack of the clones) also shipping
with this assortment - vc08 darth vader, vc17 general grievious and more
of vc14 sandtrooper.
vc29 kit fisto
everyone favorite tentacles head jedi with dazzling
smile is the first figure in attack of the clones line-up. the
card background is from attack of the clone movie during geonosis arena
battle (when he force push c-3po/battle droid mash up). card back
shows kit fisto figure from 2002 episode 2 attack of the clones line.
the figure has real cloth tunic under layer
and jedi robe which gives the figure a real nice touch.
the figure is from recent tooling and features good
articulations with excellent paint job. the figure comes
with lit green lightsaber and unlit one that can be attach to
vc30 zam wesell
another favorite characters from attack of the
clones, a shapeshifter female bounty hunter zam wesell. the card
back is from promotional shot of the character and a nice homage to the
old vintage boba fett card. the card back depicts the toy first
appearance as part of the power of the jedi attack of the clones sneak
preview set from 2002.
zam figure is all new sculpt and an excellent one.
the figure is highly details and come with various parts for her
headgear including swamp able alien head. the figures include her
sniper rifle and pistol as accessories.
vc31 obi-wan Kenobi
assortment wouldn't be complete without obi-wan
character and for attack of the clones, the figure depict obi-wan with
swept back hair and beard as he appears in attack of the clone as full
fledge jedi knight. the card back is a bit unusual as it depict
close up face of obi-wan instead of typical action shot or promo shot
thus make the card looks not quite "authentic" as vintage kenner style
the figure is repackaged of recent obi-wan figure
with cloth jedi robe. he comes with jedi com-link and lightsaber.
it's too bad that the saber hilt is not properly painted and there is no
unlit saber included.
vc32 anakin skywalker (peasant
prequel collection wouldn't be complete without
anakin to go along with obi-wan. this is all new figure of padawan
anakin in his peasant disguise. the card back picture is perfect
giving using promotion shot that fit the vintage style feel.
peasant (actually refer to as refugee in the movie)
disguise come with real cloth poncho and all new body. he come
with lightsaber both lit and unlit hilt for on the belt display. the
figure has great articulations and details that sadly hidden underneath
vc33 padme amidala (peasant disguise)
hasbro also releases the long absent version of
amidala in refugee outfit to go with anakin. this is the first
time padme in this particular outfit is made into action-figure.
the card back capture the essence of vintage style card.
this is a brand new figure of amidala. the figure has
excellent sculpt with all the modern articulations. the figure
comes with real cloth trim and removable head scarf that can be replaced
with the headdress.
vc34 jango fett
jango fett is of course an obvious choice for attack
of the clone done in vintage style card backing. the picture while
dramatic, looks a bit cgi and cartoonish. may be that is
intentional but i can't help but think a promo style photo would be a
this is a repackage figure kit-bash from various
jango fett released over the years. he comes with removable helmet,
pilot headset and even his poncho. althought not an all new
figure, he is definitely a must have for collectors of vintage style
vc35 mace windu
another prominent jedi from attack of the clones and
is welcome sight to see as part of the vintage series. the photo
is excellent for vintage card style and capture both a dramatic scene
from the movie and retro looks of the card backing.
this is new figure of mace with very good likeness
and great articulations. he comes with cloth under tunic and jedi
robe (which often missing from mace figure). he comes with his signature
purple lightsaber along with unlit hilt.
vc36 senate guard
a senate guard is a surprise choice though probably a
welcome one for collectors. the figure is all new with good
articulations and real cloth robe. the card picture is promotional
shot and while looks good, hasbro decided to switch to use movie still
photo for later version.
senate guard figures that ship with some of the later
wave 4 and in wave 6 were changed to this cardback photo. the
new photo depict the guard in full body instead of the close up shot.
vc37 super battle droid
the last figure in attack of the clones wave is super
battle droid. the card back is decent but again looks heavily cgi
which perhaps can't be help consider the source material but makes the
card look slightly out of place with vintage style design. the
figure is repackage of super battle droid figure from recent line.
it's unfortunate that hasbro could not at least give the figure a better
paint job to at least match his photo on the card.
