HAN SOLO (YAVIN CEREMONY) Han Solo (Yavin Ceremony) - VC42 The Vintage Collection from Hasbro A New Hope

The VC42 Han Solo (Yavin Ceremony) is never going to be considered a highlight in The Vintage Collection. Even though this kit bash figure gave us our first Ceremony Han, it is far from accurate, since he's not wearing the proper shirt. What does make this figure seriously cool for long time collectors, however, is how well it represents a modern version of the Big Head Han from the classic Kenner collection. This figure is a highbred kit bash of the 2004 VOTC Han Solo and the 2009 Legacy Collection BD30 Han Solo.

The fifth wave of action figures in The Vintage Collection was sort of a mixed bag. The assortment featured the VC20 Yoda, which was originally slated for the third wave, along with six kit bashed or repainted figures including the repainted VC38 Clone Trooper (212th Battalion), the kit bashed VC39 Luke Skywalker (Death Star Escape), the repainted VC40 R5-D4, the kit bashed VC41 Stormtrooper, and the repacked VC43 Commander Gree. This assortment didn't ship to Canada, but the Yoda, Luke, and Stormtrooper were ever offered North of the 49th in future waves.

Poll
Back before the world wide web and social media ruled our shopping habits there was a long-established practice of driving around all the nearby toy stores to hunt down the latest releases. Obviously times have changed and online retail is far more important than it was twenty-five years ago - but has it killed the toy run? What was your shopping experience over the Triple Force Friday product launch weekend?
I managed to find everything I wanted in stores!
I found some but had to resort to big box websites to complete my haul.
I didn't bother stepping outside and ordered everything online.
I haven't bought any of the TFF product yet. Roll on clearance sales.
I'm waiting for the TV series/movie release before I commit.
I've so over it, no more Star Wars collecting for me.
