Special thanks to chaztheguru for the tip and tvc.dadalorian for posting in hand images of the upcoming Star Wars Vintage Collection Return of the Jedi Biker Scout and Speeder Bike. What is amazing about these images is that tvc.dadalorian has posted the card back from the Biker Scout so we also get a window into future figures coming to line!
Speeder Bike and Scout Trooper
The Speeder Bike and Biker Scout vehicle and figure set were revealed at London Comic Con 2022! The packaging for this set is truly vintage style and looks like it came out of 1985! This truly retro inspired packaging features the Biker Scout zooming thru the forest of Endor on his Speeder Bike! There is a photo of the actual figure and speeder bike on the front corner as well. Then the biker scout comes packaged in on his own vintage style ROTJ blister card back! The details on the Speeder Bike look spectacular, and it includes a translucent flight stand as well! The biker scout has a new head sculpt with classic features and really nails it when it comes to his helmet design. This is a must have for any Star Wars collector! This was one of my favorites as a kid, and I will definitely need to pick up a couple of these!

Future Vintage Collection Figures
We love when collectors post images of the card backs as they reveal future figures coming to the line and what a treat are in for! We have already seen in hand images of Cassian Andor and Vel Sartha and Hunter was revealed during Pulse Con 2022 and this next wave of figures also has Admiral Piett, Hunter (from the Bad Batch), Cassian Andor (Aldhani Mission), Phase 2 Clone Trooper, and Starkiller (Vader’s Apprentice).
Announced and Revealed Figures
Above all else, Vel Sartha is a survivor. A rebel operative ever on the move, Vel is willing to sacrifice creature comforts, personal relationships, and even her life for her latest mission: to infiltrate the Empire on Aldhani.
Cassian Andor has spent much of his life watching as the Empire lay waste to the galaxy. As part of his entry into the growing rebellion, he will undertake a dangerous mission to Aldhani and ultimately become an accomplished Alliance Intelligence officer, commanding respect from his rebel troops with his ability to keep a cool head under fire.
Cassian Andor (Aldhani Mission)
Where to Buy:
Revealed during Hasbro Pulse Con 2022 was Hunter from The Bad Batch! The figure doesn’t have a release date of yet, but the figure is modeled after Hunter’s appearance on the Disney+ series.
Moving off the pipeline reveal list are the remaining figures in the wave! Rounding out the next wave of Vintage Collection has the Clone Trooper Phase 2 Armor, Admiral Piett, and Starkiller (Vader’s Apprentice).
Phase 2 Clone Trooper
Several iterations of this figure have been made before so we are speculating that this will be a repack figure on an updated card. Whether the tooling or any design changes will be made is TBD.
Starkiller (Vader’s Apprentice)
Starkiler was part of the Vintage Collection in 2012 so it is great to see him back in the line up. According to the Lucas Film Wiki, “Starkiller, also known as Galen Marek and The Apprentice, is the anti-hero main protagonist of the Star Wars: The Force Unleashed project (including a video game, novel, and comics), who first appeared in the game Soulcalibur IV. He is voiced by Sam Witwer, who also gave his likeness to the character. After Darth Vader kills Galen’s father, he is raised by Vader and is made his secret apprentice, under the name “Starkiller”. He is potent with using the Force for destructive purposes, with Witwer describing him as less of an assassin and more of a “Force wrecking ball”. After Starkiller’s supposed sacrificial death in Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, he is either resurrected or cloned by Darth Vader in order to be his secret apprentice again. Starkiller escapes from the cloning facility, and at the end of The Force Unleashed II he captures and imprisons Darth Vader.
Announced as a pipeline reveal at Hasbro Pulse Con 2022, Admiral Piett is also part of the wave to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Return of the Jedi!
