REBEL COMMANDO Rebel Commando - Return of the Jedi Return of the Jedi version
The VC26 Rebel Commando from the third wave of figures in The Vintage collection was the first 3 3/4-inch figure based on a rebel Sergeant from the Battle of Endor. While there are two versions of this figure designated as VC26, only this one was shipped in 2010.

Released in November 2010, the third wave of figures in The Vintage collection focused on characters from Return of the Jedi including the VC21 Gamorrean Guard, VC22 Admiral Ackbar, VC23 Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight / Endor Capture), VC24 Wooof, VC25 R2-D2, VC26 Rebel Commando (first version) and VC27 Wicket action figures. Both Yoda and Wedge Antilles were originally intended to be a part of this wave but both were shuffled to later assortments. Many of the figures in this wave were re-released on chase variant Revenge of the Jedi cards in the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con Exclusive Revenge of the Jedi Death Star Set and later in stores on the same cards, only this time sporting a send away sticker and mail in order form.
