2011 the vintage collection special
action figures set
target release the 3rd wave of special action figure
set in july of 2011. like wave 2, the set is sold separate and including
1 star wars card back and 2 of the empire strike back. both of the
empire set are the imperial and the lone rebel set is star wars set.
special action figure set 3 - star
wars and the
empire strikes back
the set consist of one rebel assortment and two
imperial set. just like the last special action figure, these sets
are replica of 1970's and 80's vintage line jc penney store box set that were sold
as "value" pack. the naming convention back then was not
exactly correct and all the bad guys were imperial while poor chewie is
considered to be android.
the android set consisted of repackaged and repaint
figures from prior years. c3-po and r2-d2 both came from
"resurgence of the jedi" battle-pack set while chewbacca is the good old
"early bird" version.
this set includes repackage of captain needa from the
legacy collection as generic imperial commander and another at-at driver
also from legacy collection. dengar is included in this set though in
today lexicon he is probably would be more appropriate for the "imperial
forces" set with the other two bounty hunter. the snowtrooper would be
right at home with his imperial comrades. though, hasbro probably
want to keep the set true to the original release versions.
the imperial forces set include two bounty hunters -
bossk and ig-88 and a lone true imperial force - snowtrooper. all
three figures are repackaged of the vintage trilogy collection from few
years back (and were also available as part of saga legend 2010 line
"shadow of the empire" series).
