Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

Ah! You're right...I was momentarily confused and, yes, the Naboo Fighter is more or less new with new features and detailing. Thanks for correcting me.

The other two are definitely repaints, though.

Given Hasbro's recent tendency to cut costs at every corner it's only understandable for a lot of us to confuse every new ship and vehicle with a previous release. So much recent product outside of the Vintage Collection has been shameless repacks of older(often crappy)stuff that it's become the knee-jerk, default reaction within the collecting community.

Congrats on the clamshell/Vintage-packaged IG-88!
