DACK RALTER Star Wars The Empire Strikes Back
The Vintage Collection 2010 VC07 Dack Ralter was the first single carded figure based on Luke Skywalker's gunner in the Battle of Hoth. While he didn't do a lot when the small band of Rebel pilots took on the Imperial Walkers, he did go to his death feeling like he could take on the whole Empire himself.

Hasbro revealed four of the figures in the first wave of The Vintage Collection at the UK Toy Fair in January 2010, but the first wave, which also included new figures based on Dengar, Leia (Hoth Outfit), the first ever Han Solo (Echo Base Outfit), Luke Skywalker (Bespin Fatigues), the generic and very Kenner-esque AT-AT Commander, C-3PO (See-Threepio) with removable panels (Twin-pod) Cloud Car Pilot and Darth Vader along with repacked 4-LOM and Boba Fett figures; wasn't fully revealed until the International Toy Fair the following month. This assortment began showing up in July 2010.

In the U.S. all eleven figures shipped with starburst stickers on the card front and pamphlets in the blister for a mail away Kenner style Boba Fett figure with a rocket-firing feature. In Canada, the initial release, which was found only at Walmart stores, didn't have the offer, so there were no stickers or pamphlets included. By the time the figures hit Toys "R" Us Canada, however, the offer was included. For whatever reason the stickers misspelled Fett's name as 'Bobba'.

About This Figure
U.S. Card Variations
  • There is only one know U.S. card back for the VC07 Dack Ralter figure.
North American Tri-Logo Card Variations
  • There were two versions of the VC07 Dack Ralter sold in Canada. The first, found only in the initial shipment to Walmart in July 2010 did not have the mail away offer, so the card didn't have a sticker of pamphlet. The second version, which was readily available did feature the offer, but the starburst sticker had a typo, so it promoted a special "Bobba Fett" figure offer.
