MAGNAGUARD Star Wars Revenge of the Sith
If there was one single reimagining of a previously released figure in this wave it was without doubt the VC18 MagnaGuard. Unlike previous versions, this figure is chock full of both detail and articulation. Throw in a tattered soft goods cloak, and Hasbro can do no wrong. For loose collectors, there is no excuse not to have at least four of this figure!

The second wave of The Vintage Collection was revealed at the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con. With the exception of a single Star Wars (A New Hope) figure that we've always wanted on a Kenner card, this assortment mainly focused on the characters from Revenge Of The Sith, marking the first time anything other than the Original Trilogy was represented on a Kenner Vintage card. The Assortment included Darth Sidious in his brown robes, Darth Vader as he appeared on Mustafar, Sandtrooper with a white Sergeant pauldron, the clean Phase II Clone Trooper, repacked Obi-Wan Kenobi, General Grievous with soft goods cloak, the definitive MagnaGuard and the (yawn) repainted Clone Commander Cody. Wave two began shipping in September 2010.

All eight figures in this wave was available on both regular and foil cards.

U.S. Card Variations
  • There is only one known card back for the regular edition U.S. VC18 MagnaGuard. The code below works like this: F = Card Front, B = Card Back, FS = Card Front Sticker, BS = Card Back Sticker, DS = Date Stamp
  • F1.1 B1.1 FS1.1 BS(N/A) DS02631 - "Original figures in packaging from 1970's, 1980's, 1990's, and 2000's illustrated here are not available." text on cardback. Rocket firing Boba Fett mail-away offer sticker.
  • Released simultaneously, Hasbro produced special foil version for each figure in this wave of The Vintage Collection action figures. As with all the foil cards in the first wave, all of the wave two foil cards were short packed and boasted much smaller print runs. The Foil to Regular production ratio was roughly one to every ten. This short-lived premium chase packaging ended with this assortment.
North American Tri-Logo Card Variations
  • There were three versions of the VC18 MagnaGuard sold in Canada.
  • The regular edition card with the starburst Boba Fett offer sticker and the order form.
  • The regular edition card with the order form but no starburst Boba Fett offer sticker. This version was only found at Toys "R" Us at the end of 2010.
  • The foil card featured the Boba Fett offer order form, but didn't have the starburst sticker.
  • By the time the second assortment was released the "Bobba Fett" text error was corrected. To date and based on date stamps, there have been no documented examples of the error sticker showing up on any of the figures in this wave.
