We're back from our first meeting, which was a 6-hour meeting with Hasbro! While we plow through all of the photos, press releases, presentations, and news from that galaxy far, far away, I thought I'd give you a quick down & dirty field report from what we have learned.

  • The Vintage Collection is the official name of the "realistic-style" figures, and the numbering will be "VC#" starting with VC001 Dengar.

  • The BAT-AT is VERY NICE! It includes an action figure...the 2006 AT-AT Driver figure.

  • TVC will not be limited to just action figures. There will be a Toys "R" Us-exclusive packaging variation for the AT-AT, recreating the Kenner packaging. The toy will be the exact same.

  • There will also be 2 more vehicles in this style, which were not shown. Look for them to be revealed at Comic-Con.

  • Bespin Luke Skywalker has ankles, Hoth Princess Leia does not.

  • Hoth Hangar Han Solo wears a brown jacket, not a blue one, which would have been a nice tribute to the Kenner figure. (but c'mon...a repaint is probably already planned...)

  • Galactic Heroes Cinema Scenes are ending, as well as the Comic Packs.

  • San Diego Comic-Con exclusives include the Camie & Fixer Comic Packs, the Darth Maul & Owen Lars Visionaries Comics Set, and a special packaging TVC 2-pack of 4-LOM and Zuckuss, repainted and corrected for the first time.

  • MUCH more to come....we're just getting started!
