the vintage collection series 3


the vintage collection made another return in 2012 and this time the line expanded in a big way to commemorate the released of star wars episode 1 the phantom menace 3d movie.



in 2011 the vintage collection line suffered a severe uneven distribution problem and many of the figures were very difficult to find a retails.  hasbro tried to addresse the problem of carry forward figures being stuck on the shelves (by removing them and no longer continued to repack trooper in every assortments).  while the problem improved somewhat many retailers still either flooded with one wave while others were no where to be found.



this year start off with the much delayed the phantom menace wave (originally scheduled for 2010) to coincide with the new 3d movie and then follow by the blu-ray deleted scene wave (a bit late since the blu-ray movies came out several months ago).


for remaining of 2012 hasbro plan is to have mixed assortments of figures from all six movies along with subject from the various expanded universe materials including the old republic video game along with realistic vintage style version of characters from clone wars animated series.



for 2nd half of 2012, hasbro plans another chase figure variants this time featuring the "lost line" series.  the figure from wave 4 (wave 15 for the series) come in alternate packaging base on the old kenner unused design from 1977.  the  lost line set is also available as sdcc exclusive along with vintage version of jar-jar bink in carbonite.


the final wave of 2012 and also of the vintage series (the line is set to be on hiatus at the end of 2012), includes four figures from the phantom menace that were previously release as wal-mart exclusive (in darth maul packaging), two clone wars animated series figures, another expanded universe the old republic figure and five return of the jedi figures.  the last wave will be sold only through on-line outlets.
