2010 the vintage collection target
as part of the 30th anniversary of the empire strikes
back and launch of the new vintage collection line, hasbro released star
wars vehicles in the original style kenner packaging (the photographs
are all new and used the modern toys as prop). there were only
four vehicles from the empire strikes back movie in 2010 line up - the
tie-fighter, snowspeeder (luke), twin-pods cloud car and imperial walker
at-at, but sadly the cloud car was not released in vintage style
this is reissue of the tie-fighter but with new
improve detail cockpit. instead of the large wings, hasbro has
decided to go with the classic small wings of the old toys and while
fans clamored for authenticity, the small wings give the vehicle more of
the vintage style looks and feels.
the cockpit has been completely redone and is now
sport super detailing panels and control system.
another vehicle to get vintage style packaging is the
newly tool rebel armored snowspeeder. the same speeder is also
sold in regular shadow of the dark side blue packaging as luke's
snowspeeder. beside the packaging both vehicles are identical in
rebel armored snowspeeder
the vehicle has been completely retool from the
ground up and incorporate all new modern design. there is no light
and sound gimmick but in passing the vehicle looks as if it could be
model use on the movie set.
the snowspeeder in vintage collection, while not
stating on the box it is decorated as luke's version. the vehicle
incorporate many modern toys engineering design including realistic
cockpit. hasbro even include small harpoon gun in place of the
firing one so the vehicle would looks more realistic.
