- Wedge Antilles Figure
- The Wedge Antilles figure uses the body of Grizz Frix figure from the 2011 Toys "R" Us exclusive Battle Over Endor (2 of 2) multipack, which is a slight retooling of the 2006 Saga Vintage Collection Luke Skywalker: X-Wing Pilot figure.
- Originally released in one revision case in 2011, the Wedge Antilles figure became one of the most sought after figures in The Vintage Collection, and supply didn't even come close to meeting demand. Being repacked in 2012, it finally became available to collectors at a standard retail price.
- There are three documented variations on this figure's card back. The first version featured an image of its actual card on the back of the card. This version was very quickly replaced with a new cardback that featured a still from the film in its place. From there, Hasbro altered the oval on the card back that stated "Wedge Antilles Return Of The Jedi". One version has a solid light violet coloured background behind the text, and another features a gradient overlay background from dark blue to violet behind the text.
