The Vintage Collection may be dead as a main line but we will still be getting some Vintage Collection vehicles and figures as store exclusives in 2013. Most of these will see a non-exclusive release under the new “The Black” series with non-vintage style packaging. Here is a breakdown as was revealed last weekend at the New York Toy Fair.
Toys R’ Us
– Battle of Geonosis Vintage Republic Gunship. This version will come in deco colors specific to the one Yoda rode in during Episode II. It will come with the gun turrets as well as figures of Yoda, Clone Pilot and Clone Trooper.
– Biggs’ X-Wing – This will go nicely with the new Biggs Darklighter figure in X-Wing outfit which is slated for the Black series.
Darth Vader’s Origins – This is a re-release of the Darth Vader on the operating table with surgical droids that was released under the Revenge of the Sith line.
We will be getting a new Scanning Crew and Ewoks with Catapult set. These sets will come in the Vintage style 2-pack packaging like we have seen with previous Kmart exclusives.
– Evolutions sets return with the Anakin to Darth Vader set.
Tie Interceptor – in Vintage style packaging. No figures will be included with this one.
Slave-1 with Han Solo in Carbonite – This will be a repainted version of the large Slave-1 released for the Clone Wars line. It will come in ESB Vintage style packaging.
San Diego Comic Con
– Black series SDCC exclusive Boba Fett – No details have been released, but the two most likely rumors would be that the Comic-Con exclusive would be in Empire Strikes Back colors and come with a Carbonite Han Solo, while a non comic-con exclusive version would be released at retail without the Carbonite. The second rumor is that the comic con version would be of Boba Fett in either ESB colors or ROTJ colors, while the regular retail version would be in the colors not chosen for the convention. We will likely be hearing more on this in the next couple of months.
