STORMTROOPER Stormtrooper - VC41 The Vintage Collection from Hasbro The Empire Strikes Back

The VC41 Stormtrooper had more growing pains than most of the other figures in The Vintage Collection. The earlier versions had helmets that were not painted correctly and the paint details on the midsection were missing. Hasbro quickly resolved these issues and all later releases, including the Revenge Of The Jedi/Return Of The Jedi recarding, had a corrected helmet and midsection deco.

Both versions of this figure is a kit bash using most of the 2007 30th Anniversary Collection's VC14 Sandtrooper.

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 VC42 Han Solo (Yavin Ceremony), 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
Next September marks the twentieth anniversary of Hasbro's Kenner The Power Of The Force action figure collection. The line introduced a new generation of children to the wonderful world of Star Wars toys and ushered in the modern collectibles we all enjoy today. Our ever-inquisitive Probe Droid is actively searching all corners of the galaxy to find out if there is interest in products that commemorate this very significant 1995 release.
I'd be into a Hasbro The Lost Line style assortment
I'd love to see Gentle Giant make a Jumbo Kenner 1995 Luke Skywalker
I'm behind both of these ideas!
I got started in 1995, but I have no interest in such a concept.
It isn't for me.
