There is little doubt that many modern collectors hold the Kenner-inspired releases Hasbro has offered since they launched The Vintage Original Trilogy Collection in 2004 in high regard. For the first time ever, you can now see how Hasbro was able to get Lucasfilm to sign off on the VOTC line and ultimately The Vintage collection that followed. Click through to find out more about these two figures and why, after a decade you are finally able to have a look at these key pieces of modern Star Wars collecting history.

Looking at this auction titled "HUGE STAR WARS Wholesale Closeout Overstock Lot 2633 Pieces on 2 Pallets FLORIDA" we are instantly conflicted. The listing states there are 2,633 Hasbro and Kenner toys in the lot, but there is no list detailing what is included in that number. It could be 1,002 Episode I Darth Mauls and 1,611 Legacy Collection Yarna D'Al' Gargan action figures and a few other pieces. Additionally, there is the small print that states that only the first two pictures represent what you are bidding on. Take a look at the auction and let use know what you think.

Now that Star Wars: Rebels has three episodes under its belt, you are probably wondering where the heck all the action figures are. We asked Hasbro that question earlier today and they told us they "should be hitting brick and mortar retailers any day now". So don't give up hope yet and keep hunting! Make sure to let us know when and where you find them and we'll do the same.

Rebelscum reader Bryan D. sent in the images linked above of The Black Series 6-inch Imperial Shadow Squadron set he picked up today at his local Target in South Carolina. Using the product's DPCI# (087-06-1202) he was able to have a clerk pull it out of the stockroom. This set, which includes a black Speeder Bike along with Shadow Scout and Shadow Stormtrooper Commander figures, rang up at $49.99.
