    Comments: Generally speaking, vintage collectors disregard virtually everything the Expanded Universe has offered to the Star Wars community. Even though they still call him Pruneface instead of ...Orrimaarko..., all have to agree that the EU did answer the age old question that overshadows all others in the vintage community: ...Who?s this guy???... With it?s rather ambiguous card back photo, most collectors thought the figure was based on one of the myriad characters from Jabba?s Palace who got a millisecond of screen time in Return Of The Jedi. As it turns out, he ended up being a rebel dude from the second act... who only got a millisecond of screen time in Return Of The Jedi.

    Major Variations: Though all vintage figures have minor variations, the Pruneface action figure has no major variations.

    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.
