Personally, as a starwars vehicles collector, my knowledge on the figures is rudimentary at best. However, it is in-fact a good way of Hasbro responding to a niche collectors' market on the release of such a figure.

Currently at the time of the light review, the figure is only available at OG Orchard Point, and only as a free gift upon purchase of 6 vintage collection figures in a single receipt and whilst stocks last.

Without further ado... thanks for reading. :wink:

thanks for a great review, I unboxed mine yesterday too. Love the 12-back style card, brings back soo many memories lol.

A tad disappointed that the missile is not the J-slot type but that's a small issue compared to everything else we've been given 8)

Something like that... though it wasn't realized as a mistake during that time.
