Well....I'm not so excited now about the Vintage Collection returning.  Apparently the bubbles are separating from the cardbacks. The bubbles are also coming taped to the front of the packaging art. This is the same issue we had back in 2013/2014 with the initial Black Series line. The taped bubbles are expected for at least the first 2 VC waves.

And speaking of "bubble gate" , I have opened two different  6" 40th anniversary Vintage style carded Death Star Commanders this past month.  And even though they to have tape , the blisters were coming off the cards easily as I squeezed there edges a little. I really didn't need a knife at all.
This concerns me, as I know many of us bought the set only to display carded. I guess time will tell if these will hold up.  ???

BUBBLEGATE!!!!  Just came back from EB Games....bought some Vintage Collection figures.  When I got home, I didn't realize that the bubble was starting to separate from the cardback on my FO Stormtrooper.   ........................It's going back to the store.

AND!...I have to say that the tape securing the bubble to the cardbacks is a wonderful added touch there Hasblow!  Cardbacks seem to be a little flimsy. Fix the issues now!!!!

Got an email from juggernaut toys yesterday with the following breakdown:

TVC Wave 5
Princess Leia Organa (Hoth)
Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight)
Darth Vader (ESB)
Han Solo (Echo Base)
TVC Wave 6 New Figures
Elite Praetorian Guard
Imperial Stormtrooper
Captain Phasma
Lando Calrissian (Solo)
Chewbacca

TVC Wave 7 New Figures
Luke Skywalker (Crait)
Death Star Gunner
Hovertank Commander
R2-D2

Wave 5 is a complete skip for me.

Wave 6 I hope Chewbacca is on a star wars card. Same with R2. I'll probably want the stormtrooper and all of wave 7. Really not much to be excited about though. The return of vintage really has been a letdown in character selection for OT collectors.

Anyone hear anything about the han stormtrooper target exclusive making its way to Canada? It is now showing up in the US. I have yet to hear if any retailer in Canada has picked it up. I just want one mint on card for my carded vintage collection.

The only place I can see getting it (and other Target exclusives) is EB Games. But I haven't heard anything about it, so who knows? If Hasbro limited the production run, it's possible that all the stock is staying in the U.S.

Also note that the figure is supposed to have a street date of May 12, so any figures showing up already should be considered outliers at this point.
