Despite Hasbro going on record many times stating The Vintage Collection was only on hiatus, many collectors had it in their head that the line came to an end in 2012. After six year breather the line came back in 2018, continuing right where it left off.
The VC120 Rebel Soldier (Hoth) super articulated 3.75-inch articulated action figure featured on this page is a repaint of a figure originally released in 2010 in the Target exclusive Defense of Hoth multipack. This figure was slated for release on April 13, 2018 as part of Lucasfilm's Solo: A Star Wars Story product, along with VC116 Rey (Jakku), VC117 Kylo Ren, VC118 First Order Stormtrooper, VC119 Jyn Erso, and VC121 Supreme Leader Snoke. Many retailers across North America disregarded the street dates clearly marked on the shipping boxes and sold these figures weeks earlier.
