The Vintage Collection debuted on April 3rd, 2010 with a German Jedi-Con exclusive convention 2-pack,
which featured Bounty Hunters 4-Lom and
Zuckuss. The basic figure assortment was available on store shelves in
August of 2010.
For The Vintage Collection Hasbro brought back the much loved Kenner packaging-style from the late 70's and 80's with a coffin blister and a movie still or character picture to the right of the figure.
The original Vintage Collection included Star Wars figures from all available Star Wars media entertainment at the time, including the original and prequel trilogies, the Clone Wars and the Expanded Universe.
The original Vintage Collection ended in 2013 and took a five year break before it returned to store shelves again in April 2018. Eight years total passed between the launch of the first Vintage Collection and the second one.
The Vintage Collection is aimed exclusively at collectors with a state-of-the-art representation and a realistic appearance of the character.
