Petition for Hasbro to make more NEW 3​.​75" Star Wars Vintage Collection figures per year



The purpose of this petition is to provide Hasbro with actionable market data to justify the investment in more new 3.75" Star Wars Vintage Collection figures every year. 

By signing this petition, I affirm the following:

1. Collecting Hasbro's 3.75" Star Wars Vintage Collection is / will be a hobby of mine.

2. In order to retain / attract me as a customer, Hasbro must produce more newly tooled figures each year than is currently being produced, and those figures need to be in close alignment with the desires of the collector community.

3. I am more likely to visit retail locations that properly stock and manage Hasbro's 3.75" Star Wars Vintage Collection, and will also do so more frequently.

As Star Wars action figure customizers these action figures are necessary to continue our art form. If you could please sign to support the blog, it would be greatly appreciated!

Back The Vintage Collection




For the last few years, 3.75" Star Wars action figure collectors have grown more and more frustrated with the releases from Hasbro. The first gripe started with reduction to 5 points of articulation from super-articulated figures that were the standard at the time. Poor character selection and lack of availability compounded the irritation collectors were feeling. Gaslighting by Hasbro executives did not help the issue. The corporation's push to make 6" action figures the new standard while adopted by some, was not embraced by all. 

Recently, collector's patience with Hasbro has evaporated and fan sites like JediTempleArchives.com, Yakface.com, JediBusiness.com, ImperialShipyards.net,  and BanthaSkull.com have banded together to have their voices heard. Bossk's Bounty has led the charge and we highly recommend watching the video above to become more informed on the issue and find out how you can get involved.

As long time members of the collecting community, Customs for the Kid knows how important  increased articulation is for providing parts for our projects and "new" parts from "new" characters increases the possibilities available to us for creating something truly special. A thriving 3.75" line is so important to action figure customizers, photonovelists, and diorama builders. That is why we are asking our readers to defend the threatened art forms and join the chorus of voices advocating for a stronger and more robust 3.75" super-articulated line in the Star Wars Vintage collection. Leave comments with Hasbro support staff, letting them now we all want more figures from TVC, not less and ask them to return to the worldbuilding focus we all love.
