Sammy Delco just purchased the lastest Star Wars The Vintage Collection figures in China and gave us a closer look at the head sculpts. Initially Hasbro announced during New York Comic Con 2018 that those figures would be straight re-releases, with the exception of changes to the legal statements on the back of the packaging.

Check out the comparison shots!
Update: Darth Vader has been added, and he as well was updated with the photo real face printing technology.
