SWTVC’s March Madness 2022

Happy New Year! Today, our friends over at SWTVC on Instagram have begun soliciting submissions for this year's TVC March Madness fan poll! Just like last year, they are asking for your top 25 most-wanted action figures in The Vintage Collection. All fan lists will be tallied for a March Madness-style poll to narrow down which figures fans and collectors most desire to be released in 3 3/4" within The Vintage Collection.

Bring Home The Bounty – Week 10 Press Release

This morning Starwars.com released their 10th week of Star Wars toys, collectibles, and merchandise in their Bring Home the Bounty campaign. This week was especially exciting as it previewed two figures from The Book of Boba Fett. These are the first two figures to be featured in The Vintage Collection line from the upcoming Disney+ series. Also of note is the Fett figure being branded as a "World-Building Set" and retailing above the recently announced deluxe line of figures. The deluxe figs, which are Wal*Mart exclusives, retailed at $20.99 and included extra "world-building"-type items as well. The new price point is a bit surprising as Boba is not an exclusive and will be available at stores and etailers which usually keeps prices down. We will [...]
