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), Phase 2 Clone Trooper, and Starkiller (Vader’s Apprentice). The only figure that is missing is Cassian Andor (Aldhani Mission), which is featured on Biker Scout card back from the Biker Scout and Speeder Bike set.
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.
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!
