Jota has one of the biggest Star Wars action figure collection in Spain. Focused on vintage stuff only, he has some very rare pieces from spanish company PBP who produced under Kenner’s license in the 80s. The link we attach in this post will bring you to a spanish website with pictures of his collection and to a video where he shows the collection to a youtube tv channel. Is in spanish and you may not understand, but still worth watching.

Score:  3 / 5

This is a comic shop, so do not expect big stock of anything. If you are into Vintage you may find what you are looking for at good price. Power Of The Force 2 figures are not very much sought after by collectors, but if you miss any piece in your collection may be worth looking here. This is a physical shop but they accept on-line orders.

Score:  4 / 5

If you are doing some toy runs while visiting San Diego this shop is a must visit. Only dedicated to Action Figures and Games, they do not have a huge stock but have really very good prices both in modern and vintage figures. The owner, John, is a very nice guy. The Vintage figures are in very good shape and all with original weapons, excellent price-quality. Modern figure lines are at retail price! A must visit while in San Diego!

Score:  5/5 – Top10!

The Vintage Collection has been the best Star Wars action figure collection ever. Yet, when you search in the internet you will struggle to find good figures reviews and analysis of this collection, only www.jeditemplearchives.com had an excellent coverage of the releases in this line. As a tribute to the line this website organized in 2013 a special report with owners of famous websites of the collecting community to select and review what were the best of the 100+ figures released in The Vintage Collection. Hasbro also was invited and featured in this report with their opinions. If you really are into this line you must read this report with a cup of coffee, enjoy!

Tip: Watch out because the basic text is in black color against black background, probably due to some reformatting of the site after the report was posted there. You will have to select the text to highlight and be able to read it. I have notified this to JTA for their repair but maybe it won’t be still modified by the time you read it.
