Clone Trooper Echo and Offworld Jawa (the Mandalorian) were shown and confirmed as part of the Maul/Ahsoka wave coming in July.

A single card re-pack of Teebo (from 2012's Movie Heroes Battle Pack) was shown but not said which wave (leaked to be in Oct's Bespin Lando/IG-11/ROTJ the Emperor wave).

VC113 Republic Trooper was revealed as the Fan Vote re-release winner.

Pretty sure that was it.

Is the OW Jawa a new sculpt or one of the previous Jawas?

Hard to tell. He's got a new soft goods robe but can't tell what body it's on.

I ordered seven of those little guys. I might need to buy more, especially when the Razor Crest comes out.

You know what I want a re-release of? Luke's Landspeeder. The only ones on ebay are marked up $300 to $500, and it's only a re-release away from going back down to what---$40? $50? Probably $50. I would like one.

wow, that's insane! I imagine that you're talking about the later, more accurate vintage collection release - which is a fantasic landspeeder, and certainly does warrant a re-release. I bet they would include a farmboy luke and charge $50 if they did it.

Yes, it was a Target exclusive if I'm not mistaken. Judging by today's retail prices, I would not count on getting the speeder AND Luke for $50. I don't care. I would just like another shot at that speeder. It's an iconic SW vehicle.

Seeing as how they re-release anything Vintage Collection at the drop of a hat, I would not pay after market prices for ANYTHING in this line (I learned my lesson after paying out the nose for a VC Walrus Man and Emperor's Royal Guard weeks before their reissue announcement). Just wait and hope it comes around again.

Oh man, I must have missed the announcement on Walrus Man, that't great news for me, I've been eye-balling thta one lately. Sorry you got screwed, that really sucks.

Im in a similar boat with the vehicles I've missed out on, but the retail price has raised so drastically on vehicles, I'm justifying spending around $100 on something like a Y-Wing or B-Wing since I know they will cost that much if they're re-released. Not the best logic I know lol

Are you talking about when they rereleased walrus man in the Black Series like 7 years ago? I wouldn't count on availability of Vintage Collection stuff anymore.

Oh I was talking about the Walrus Man and Royal Guard that were released in 3.75" Black Series as Walmart exclusive. Exact same figures, different packaging. I'm an opener so packaging makes no difference to me. I think ERG is on hi second re-release now.

I'd be careful about waiting on stuff these days, though. The Vintage Collection is not given even a fraction of the support it was given before, so you may not see those rereleases ever happen.

If you're an opener that's a bit better (I can't imagine trying to pull together a carded collection in aftermarket prices), but there's a lot of stuff where Hasbro doesn't even have the molds any more, apparently.

In the meantime, be sure to sign the petition for more TVC figures if you haven't already. It's amazing that after completely destroying the Haslab record with the Razor Crest, TVC is still treated as an afterthought.

Ah I gotcha. Yeah, I’ve picked up most of those black series 3 3/4” re-releases for the loose collection as well. Hasbro branding those figures as “Black Series” always felt so disjointed to me and I tend to forget about them for some reason.

On the vehicles, I still have that landspeeder along with Targets better scaled snowspeeder, that really was a great time for Star Wars toy collectors! Wish I realized those days were coming to an end, I wouldnt have been so casual about picking things up.
