Star Wars Vintage Collection Wave 5

We received a huge surprise in the mail from Big Bad Toy Store with a case of the Star Wars Vintage Collection Wave 5. Hasbro has done a tremendous job with the Vintage Collection, which has been one of my favorite Star Wars lines. Wave 5 is a special case because it was released strictly online and will not be found at retail stores. 

Emperor's Royal Guard

 The Emperor's Royal Guard is an amazing figure and by far the best sculpt on a Royal Guard and it has a removable helmet. 


 Another great sculpt with Weequay! The Skiff will look good with the guards now including Weequay. 

Gungan Warrior


Aurra Sing

Aurra Sing had a few second appearance in the film, but just like Boba Fett, she seems to be one of the most popular characters. Love this figure and like the weapons and accessories she comes with, especially her collection of lightsabers. 

Republic Trooper
(The Old Republic)


Podracer Pilot

Obi-Wan Kenobi

 Really love the sculpt of Obi-Wan Kenobi. I wish he came with a helmet though. 

Nien Nunb

 Truly amazing sculpt of Nien Nunb! 

Prune Face

Naboo Pilot

Hasbro has done it once again with releasing an amazing wave of figures. There are three figures that are returning in this wave that have previously been released, but glad to see them on a Vintage card. The Naboo Pilot, Mawhonic, and Aurra Sing were released in the exclusive Walmart waves with 3d glasses. The sculpts are awesome in all of the figures and love the mixture of figures from different Star Wars films and Expanded Universe. We hope that the Vintage Collection will return to stores and not disappear. This definitely has been my favorite line from Hasbro because of the Vintage cardbacks and bringing back memories of the original figures I have and the figures I played with as a child.
