Two recent additions to The Vintage Collection, VC244-Anakin Skywalker Padawan and VC241-Darth Vader The Dark Times both come with great looking soft goods robes and capes. But even these great looking figures can use a little help in looking more accurate. That’s where Tyler of the SWTVC podcast and on Instagram as @swcollector3.75 comes in. He posted a tutorial on how to fix the front of Anakin’s robes and Vader’s oversized cloak. Both mods are farily easy to do so take a look at Tyler’s tutorial:

@SWTVC March Madness 2023 – Last Chance Today!
Head over to Instagram to our friends, swtvc and have your voices heard for March Madness 2023! For the past few years SWTVC has hosted a March Madness-style vote for the most wanted Star Wars figures for The Vintage Collection. It’s a huge event that has even caught the attention of Hasbro so put your list of most wanted 3.75 scale Star Wars figures by following the info below:
Comment below with a ranked list of your most-wanted ALL-NEW Vintage Collection figures! You can select up to 25 choices.
@SWTVC on Instagram will be using the results to build this year’s #SWTVCMarchMadness bracket, so choose wisely.
‼️Please follow these guidelines!‼️
1. Rank your choices in order, with your most-wanted figure at #1.
2. Be as specific as possible. For characters that wear multiple outfits, include details such as the movie, TV season, and/or planet or scene where they appear.
3. Focus on newly tooled figures. They can be never-before-made characters or updates to existing figures, but be mindful of what already exists, and please do not include repack requests.
4. One character per slot. Other than two-packs of small characters, please do not put multiple characters on a single line. If you want the Bad Batch or the Ghost crew, for example, list the characters individually. The ONLY exceptions here are the Tonnika sisters, who we will be combining into one choice for the bracket as we did the past two years.
You have from now until 11:59 pm PT on Tuesday, January 31 to create and submit your lists. You can do so here on this post, or on one of the other participating sites, or create your own Instagram post and tag @SWTVC and #SWTVCMarchMadness. Please only submit in ONE location to avoid duplication.
Be sure to spread the word! The more people who participate, the better the results will be. Last year we received over 400 lists covering over 1,200 different figures, and we’d love to get even more this time.
Please note: this is just for fun, to see where fans’ priorities are with The Vintage Collection. This is not officially involved with Hasbro in any way.
Galaxy of Toys Podcast Celebrates 10 Years!
This week Galaxy of Toys released their 108th podcast episode where they roundtable the topic: The Best and Worst Star Wars Toys of 2022. With this episode Galaxy of Toys also celebrates 10 years of being, in my opinion, the best Star Wars collecting podcast in the galaxy! I have had the pleasure of guesting on the show a few times over the years and I can say that they are a very large reason why I made vintage Kenner Star Wars a priority in my Star Wars room. Always knowledable and always fun to listen to!
Congratulations on 10 years!
REGAL ROBOT – NEW Embossed Metal Art!
Our friends at REGAL ROBOT have added some very cool embossed metal art to their already awesome collection. Check out the info below and CLICK the first image for more!
We’ve added a great new line to our decor, including 3 new Star Wars designs and 2 based on our retro-robot logo.
The Star Wars pieces use some really great vintage poster art from ANH, ESB and ROTJ. These almost have a classic “metal lunchbox” vibe that really sparks nostalgia in me. The pricing is great and the shipping’s good on these too! They’re in stock and I hope folks love ‘em.
