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!

    Poll
    Now that information about Celebration Anaheim is coming out, the Probe Droid is curious if you plan on attending the biggest party of 2015...
    You couldn't stop me from attending!
    I'll thinking about it...
    I'm waiting for more news before I decide.
    I can't get involved! I've got work to do!
    That's your uncle talking.
    Nope. I want to but I can't make it work.
    No way! Massively cool social events aren't my cup of tea.
