Yak's Elite 25 - The Vintage Collection Single Figures

Nearly a year ago, we began a fan vote through the Yakface Forums and Disqus to allow for Yakface readers to express which figures they want to see Hasbro produce in The Vintage Collection 3.75" scale. After multiple rounds of voting, and approximately 1400 votes, here is the Top 25 List for The Vintage Collection... followed by other figures that were voted for, but didn't make the Top 25 cut.

A big thanks to Yakface Forum Staffer darthvlad for managing this endeavor, and to our readers and fans for their participation! Even though Hasbro doesn't officially talk to us these days, we are still doing our part to make sure they are aware of this Wish List.

That's to be expected - TVC and the OT go hand-in-hand. Though there is some representation for the ST, especially characters like Connix - she made the list twice! This mirrors the last Fans Choice Poll that Hasbro conducted for TVC - Imperial Dignitary Sim Aloo and the Emperor are at the top of the list once again.

True, but not everyone is going to keep their figures carded... right now TVC is the only way to get SA figures in 3.75"... I think it would be great to get quite a few figures in the sequel trilogy with enhanced articulation... Hux, First Order Snowtrooper, First Order Flame Trooper, Resistance Troops, Jedha aliens, characters from Maz's castle, etc.

That being said, I have no problem with any of the Top 25 winners here at all, and I'd probably by all the figures in the "Top 129" list.

KIM wrote:25% of the top twenty were from Disney but they were all from the OT era, brilliant, I hope the Mandalorian gets the same love. If this isn't a sign to Disney then I don't know is.


Very true... and I also think that had Hasbro came out of the gate with a better offering of sequel trilogy figures to begin with in SA format (and TLJ was better received), we'd see some more love for that era of figures.

:wink:

I personally would buy all but one of the top 25 and probably at least 25-30 of the remainder. The majority of the ones on the Rest would be OT/RO but I would get several PT and ST figures as well. For me it's not because I'm an "old man" living in the past and only love the OT. It has to do with the fact of either not being a fan of the source material or would have personally chosen other figures. I would've bought all the Resistance Pilots from TFA/TLJ if they were SA.

but there's also very little love for the Prequel Trilogy on the list, too.

I think when you say "Vintage Collection", that evokes the classic card and immediately appeals to old school collectors who have been around since the beginning and naturally have an affinity for the OT.

Had the contest been, "What SA figures would you like to see?", perhaps the results would be slightly different? Who can say...
#169884
Considering TVC might be the only 3.75 line going forward (other than Retro) - a good variety is certainly hoped for by many that buy figures from the entire SW universe. That's what TVC has always been as well, may of us associate TVC with OT, but Hasbro has always included a diverse characters assortment in TVC, especially before the revival - including both animation and video games.

For me, the PT sorta feels finished, that's not to say I wouldn't buy a new character if released, but I certainly have no desire to see someone like Dooku rehashed yet again - we have plenty of good figures of him. The same applies to the OT - I cant imagine Lobot getting another figure, when his most recent OTC release was a huge pegwarmer. Then there's RO...it was a cool movie, but I don't think the desire for action figures was anywhere near what it should have been. I'm frankly worried that any RO rehash would gather dust. Finally - Hux, sure he's at the bottom of the list, but since he pewarmed twice, should he get a figure in the final installment? I know an SA figure would be good custom fodder, but I also think it would be a wasted slot when so few new characters from the ST get released...

Thank you Darth Vlad for doing this huge endeavor. I know it took a ton of time and patience to do this, and it’s an awesome data set to work with!

Overall, I think the only characters on the list that don’t stand out as must buys are either from TLJ or the Clone Wars. There’s also a few on the list, like Cin Drallig, who aren’t even on my radar. Not to say any of them shouldn’t be made, I just think it’s surprising to see they made any kind of list all.
