Hasbro Vintage Collection “Revenge of the Jedi” Figures

January 9, 2012

As I mentioned in my post on the SDCC Salacious Crumb figure, Hasbro released a number of figures on “Revenge of the Jedi” cards for the 2011 San Diego Comic Con, with plans to release all but the two mini-figures at retail later on. These are two of those retail figures (I got them at Toys R Us). They both had large stickers advertising the limited edition Boba Fett figure with prototype armor, while kind of ruin the look of the cards in my opinion, but they came off quite easily. The Leia figure is the same as the Legacy Collection Slave Leia that was released last year, but lacks the pair of “sitting legs” that allows the figure to sit on Jabba’s throne (presumably because they couldn’t fit on the vintage style card). That’s a shame, as the sitting legs were a really nice feature of that figure, but I do like seeing Slave Leia on this style card, since they never released a figure of her in the vintage line.

The other figure is the drink-serving R2-D2 figure, which also has no counterpart in the vintage Kenner line. It’s exactly the same as the Vintage Collection R2-D2 figure I posted about last year (with the exception of the “Revenge” card). I already have loose versions of these figures, so I’ll be keeping these carded since I really like the vintage style cards. If I find any more of the Jabba-related figures on “Revenge” cards, I’ll add them to this post.
