The Hunt Is On - The Vintage Collection 3 3/4" Wave 13 Figures Found

Wave 13 of the Vintage Collection is indeed an unusual one - featuring a disparate mix of figures from A New Hope, Rogue One, and The Clone Wars. Of these, there were only two figures that made it on to my hunt list: VC167 Power Droid and VC168 Clone Commander Wolffe. Last week, I received both via EB Games for $24.99AU ($27.08NZ) each.

While Wolffe saw a 2015 Black Series release in his cold weather gear, this is his first release in his traditional armour. A removable helmet has also been added, revealing a Photo Real likeness of New Zealand's very own Temuera Morrison.

Nevertheless, the real highlight of this wave is the Power - or 'Gonk' - Droid. Despite his popularity with fans, the Gonk Droid has only received two single-carded releases in the twenty-five-year history of the modern figure line - the most recent of which was all the way back in 2006. I missed him then, and have regretted it ever since. Fortunately that's now been remedied. With a removable upper 'shell' and two independently articulated legs, this figure gives us everything we need in a Gonk figure. He'll go great alongside my Jawa and other sandcrawler droids.
