DARTH VADER Star Wars The Vintage Collection
The third wave of figures in Hasbro's 2012 Vintage Collection included five figures spanning all corners of the Star Wars galaxy including Darth Malgus from The Old Republic, Luke Skywalker (Hoth Outfit) from The Empire Strikes Back, Anakin Skywalker from The Clone Wars, the Imperial Navy Commander (AKA Death Squad Commander/ Star Destroyer Commander in the original Kenner Line) from A New Hope, and a proper A New Hope Darth Vader.

This collection began hitting shelves in April 2012, and the initial releases feature an easy to remove sticker advertising the "Life-Sized Darth Maul Statue" giveaway. All these figures also feature a packed in pamphlet with additional details on the giveaway.

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.
