Hasbro typically makes big figure reveals on Fridays, but presumably in recognition of Juneteenth, they decided to delay the Star Wars Fan First Friday until today. A big portion of the roll-outs were more product celebrating the 40th Anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back, including one potentially amazing display piece.
Here’s some of the figures shown by Hasbro.
STAR WARS: THE VINTAGE COLLECTION CARBON-FREEZING CHAMBER Playset
(HASBRO/Ages 4 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $49.99 Available: Fall 2020)
Celebrate the legacy of STAR WARS, the action-and-adventure-packed space saga from a galaxy far, far away, with this premium 3.75-inch scale STAR WARS: THE VINTAGE COLLECTION CARBON-FREEZING CHAMBER Playset. This playset comes with a STORMTROOPER action figure and HAN SOLO in Carbonite block, and combines with an additional set to create the full scene from STAR WARS: THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK (Additional set sold separately). Featuring original Kenner branding and premium detail inspired by STAR WARS: THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK, this collectible 3.75-inch scale playset makes a great gift for STAR WARS fans and collectors. Includes playset, figure, and HAN SOLO in Carbonite. Available for pre-order at Hasbro Pulse, Amazon, and Entertainment Earth.
The catch is this setup isn’t complete unless you buy two pieces. I like the look of the set, but is it enough to warrant the $100 price tag? At least it comes with the Carbonite Han and a Stormtrooper. Being able to double dip and freeze Han and start the Luke/Vader duel is a big selling point though…
There weren’t a lot of new Vintage Collection figures, but we are getting a Bespin Escape Leia to complement the playset.
Next up was a series of the Vintage Card Black Series figures including the original card-art for Jedi Training Luke. This one doesn’t come with a Yoda so it’s not as exciting an option for me. I do see myself grabbing a few Snowtroopers however.
Pre-order Jedi Training Luke at Entertainment Earth and Amazon.
