We've been re-organizing The Vintage Collection slightly, plus we've set up a new section which is dedicated to re-releases in The Vintage Collection. Even though those figures carry the same VC number on the back of the packaging as the previous released figures, we think that the paint differences on the figures and the changes to the packaging warrants its own section. The first figure for this new section is Luke Skywalker (Endor) VC23, which was updated with Hasbro's photo real face printing technology. You can read our original report about this change from a month ago here: Oh Yes They Are Different!

Amazon has listed the single carded Force Link Emperor Palpatine 3 3/4" figure on their website. Even though this figure was available in a Target exclusive 3-pack in the U.S., and it was sold internationally single carded, it looks as if Amazon picked it up as an exclusive for the United States. Have a look at the listing, it will be sold and shipped by Amazon itself.

Entertainment Earth is currently taking preorders for Kenner Salacious Crumb figures and hookah pipes with slave collars. Originally those items were acccessories for the 1983 Kenner Jabba The Hutt action playset (that was 35/36 years ago!). We've reached out to them to see what was going on with that and it turns out that there was a warehouse find and Entertainment Earth will make those items available for purchase in May 2018. So don't miss out on those, they are very reasonably priced at $3.99 each!
