Star Wars The Vintage Collection Rogue One: A Story Antoc Merrick’s X-Wing Fighter Vehicle with Action Figure
About this deal
In Merrick's absence, or when operational authority was better served from a ground-based dispatch, General Jan Dodonna commanded the fleet. As an intelligence chief, Draven commanded a staff, but those who reported to him were normally lone operators, in contrast to Merrick's squadrons of pilots who committed themselves to cooperation and unit cohesion.

Jyn, however, was unable to deliver the holographic recording to the Alliance due to the destruction of Jedha City. This is where you will find any My Little Pony, Monster High, Barbie or Polly Pocket items that we may have in from time to time. Merrick sent multiple reports to Mon Mothma discussing the uses and details of ships both within the rebellion and those they fought against. Antoc Merrick, portrayed by Ben Daniels, is a character created for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the first installment in the Star Wars Anthology Series, which was released on December 16, 2016. Antoc Merrick commands Yavin 4’s starfighters before the Battle of the Death Star, flying as Blue Leader.has offered many gems in the Vintage Collection, but I feel this Target exclusive Antoc Merrick’s X-Wing is tied with VC186 - Boba Fett for the most exciting release of the year. During the meeting, however, several members of the Alliance dismissed Jyn's testimony, and Merrick asserted that Empire had the means of mass destruction while the Alliance did not. Merrick was in command of all starfighter squadrons at the Rebel's base on Dantooine, and then later on at Base One on Yavin 4. Taking the exact vehicle, Hasbro now repaints it as the blue X-Wing Fighter that Antoc Merrick used in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
This is a repaint of 2019’s Red-5 (Luke Skywalker’s X-Wing), which itself was a continued evolution of an X-wing mold that dates all the way back to 1998’s Power of the Force “2” line. It wasn't until a month later that most collectors began trickling out to the sales floor and online for those who don't have brick and mortar locations near them.

They've also included an exclusive pack-in figure but carded in luxurious The Vintage Collection packaging with a VC204 sequence number and gave it to Target to release for their Fall 2021 exclusive program. But if you're more focused on the Original Trilogy, or the George Lucas era of Star Wars, something like this may confuse you more than anything else.
A Target exclusive, the supply chain issues of 2021 made the vehicle nearly impossible to find at its release date. Antoc Merrick commands Yavin 4's starfighters before the Battle of the Death Star, flying as Blue Leader.
With all of the helmets produced throughout the years, it's a shame that Hasbro didn't take the time to find a better-fitting helmet for this action figure. We're not sure if it matches the likeness of the onscreen character all that much, but there are some similarities. Before long, a technician rushed to inform Mon Mothma of Rogue One's actions, but was stopped by Merrick in front of the former senator. Sometime after joining the Rebel Alliance, Merrick earned the rank of General, and was made Commander of Rebel Alliance Starfighter Command. Prior to the outbreak of the Galactic Civil War, Merrick served as the flight leader of his homeworld's planetary defense forces, which was known as the Virujansi Rarified Air Cavalry.He deferred to Colonel Cor for day-to-day decisions, but Cor treated the fighter resources as mere assets, whilst Merrick refused to risk lives needlessly. On page 170 of the 2016 reference book Star Wars: Rogue One: The Ultimate Visual Guide, Merrick was erroneously referred to as Davits Draven. He contributed in the decisions to cycle the U-wing out of escort duty, and use X-wings as the backbone of Starfighter Command. This is the first reuse of the new pilot buck Hasbro created for the VC158 - Luke Skywalker (X-Wing Pilot) figure, and it’s about time. Despite having logged hundreds of hours at the controls of a U-wing, Merrick's preferred craft when leading a squadron was Blue One, his T-65B X-wing starfighter.
Merrick was present during Erso's interrogation in the Massassi base, during which she ultimately agreed to the Alliance's demands, and she, Captain Cassian Jeron Andor, and K-2SO set off for Jedha City. It could be argued that many of these are “play features”, which are generally frowned upon in adult collectibles, but it’s only when they disrupt the aesthetic and/or create screen inaccuracies. During his time as Commander of Rebel Alliance Starfighter Command and Blue Squadron, Merrick gave a speech at the Great Temple in which he addressed the U-wing pilots. Thus, Luke’s group was changed to Red Squadron, and a blue X-Wing was a “what might have been” until Rogue One was released.
