STAR WARS THE VINTAGE COLLECTION 3.75-INCH ARTOO-DETOO (R2-D2) Figure
MSRP: $14.99
Availability: Fall 2022
Pre-order: Walmart on 3/24/22

STAR WARS THE VINTAGE COLLECTION 3.75-INCH ARTOO-DETOO (R2-D2) figure features iconic Kenner branding, inspired by the original ‘96 figures produced by Kenner. This figure is presented an individual STAR WARS: A NEW HOPE THE VINTAGE COLLECTION cardback and makes a great gift for STAR WARS collectors and fans. This VINTAGE COLLECTION figure comes with an entertainment-inspired accessory that make a great addition to any STAR WARS collection. Highly articulated with fully poseable head, arms, and legs, the figure can be displayed in action figure and vehicle collections and features premium design across multiple points of articulation. Available for pre-order March 24 at 1PM ET, exclusively at Walmart.

From Emily Cantelupe (Sr. Product Designer):
This R2-D2 Sensorscope figure is a fun callback to an Original 96 Kenner Empire Strikes Back cardback from 1981, which had a unique look from many of the others, showing R2-D2 and C-3PO on a bright blue backdrop. We thought this was a unique and nostalgic card! The original item that this is inspired by was Kenner’s re-release of R2-D2 to include his extended sensorscope feature, which R2 used as a periscope to navigate the swampy waters of Dagobah. R2-D2 is a classic Star Wars character, and one that we enjoy bringing back for both established and new to the line collectors to add to their Star Wars figure world.











STAR WARS THE VINTAGE COLLECTION 3.75-INCH IMPERIAL GUNNER Figure
MSRP: $14.99
Availability: Fall 2022
Pre-order: Walmart on 3/24/22

STAR WARS THE VINTAGE COLLECTION 3.75-INCH IMPERIAL GUNNER figure features iconic Kenner branding, inspired by the original ‘96 figures produced by Kenner. This figure is presented on an individual VINTAGE COLLECTION STAR WARS: RETURN OF THE JEDI cardback, and makes a great gift for STAR WARS collectors and fans. This figure comes with 1 entertainment-inspired accessory that makes a great addition to any STAR WARS collection and is highly articulated, with fully poseable head, arms, and legs. This IMPERIAL GUNNER figure can be displayed in action figure and vehicle collections and features premium design across multiple points of articulation. Available for pre-order March 24 at 1PM ET, exclusively at Walmart.

From Emily Cantelupe (Sr. Product Designer):
This figure celebrates the Kenner Original 96 Power of the Force Imperial Gunner. This figure body was all new for its 2019 release on a Rogue One cardback, and we are excited to adapt him for the Original Trilogy with this Return of the Jedi cardback. The key difference between the Rogue One figure release and this new version is the Imperial shoulder logos, which appeared in the ROTJ uniforms. For the cardback image, we tried to restore some of the original filmout shot and reduce some airbrushing from the original card art for a more movie accurate look.
