Vintage collecting is a niche that is often overlooked. With Hasbro bringing out well over 100 figures each year between carded, battle packs, and Clone Wars, it is all too easy to forget about the toys of yesteryear, that so many of us Star Wars fans played with growing up. But for Star Wars Action News, the time for vintage was now as a seemingly once in a lifetime vintage buy was had. What did they get? How much did they pay? Listen to this week's Star Wars Action News to find out!
Also this week, they review the recently revealed Gentle Giant Star Wars Dartboard, discuss the new circulating rumors of the Star Wars live action series, and have a Hasbro Q&A answering questions about the Asajj Ventress F/X saber and how Hasbro has determined Ahsoka Tano to be "the bestselling female Star Wars figure of all time".
Listen to all this and more on this week's podcast of Star Wars Action News!
1) At SDCC you showed the Asajj Ventress F/X Saber. It had a gray and blue plastic handle. While it was said in the presentation there would be chrome, can you describe if this will be all chromed, or which parts chrome and which plastic? Do you have any photos to share of the item?
2) With the rerelease of all the McQuarrie figures in a box set, one can't help but wonder if anything is planned for a box set of all the build-a-droids we've seen over the past year or so. Is there anything in the works for this?
3) In the Hasbro panel at SDCC it was stated that Ahsoka is the most popular female figure in Star Wars history. Can you explain how that was calculated, or by what metric this is measured?
