SANDTROOPER Star Wars A New Hope
The VC14 Sandtrooper was the sole Original Trilogy figure in the second wave of Hasbro's 2010 The Vintage Collection, but that isn't its only notable fact, as this is the first Sandtrooper to ever be packaged on a black and silver classic Kenner card. The figure itself is a repack of the 2009 Walmart exclusive The Legacy Collection Dewback with Imperial Sandtrooper. This time out, the figure includes a BlasTech T-21 Rifle.

The second wave of The Vintage Collection was revealed at the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con. With the exception of a single Star Wars (A New Hope) figure that we've always wanted on a Kenner card, this assortment mainly focused on the characters from Revenge Of The Sith, marking the first time anything other than the Original Trilogy was represented on a Kenner Vintage card. The Assortment included Darth Sidious in his brown robes, Darth Vader as he appeared on Mustafar, Sandtrooper with a white Sergeant pauldron, the clean Phase II Clone Trooper, repacked Obi-Wan Kenobi, General Grievous with soft goods cloak, the definitive Magnaguard and the (yawn) repainted Clone Commander Cody. Wave two began shipping in September 2010.

All eight figures in this wave was available on both regular and foil cards.

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.
