REVIEW: TC-14 VCD

Img_3895

Background

TC-14 was a Cybot Galactica TC-series protocol droid with feminine programming stationed aboard the Trade Federation Lucrehulk-class battleship Saak'ak.  The character appeared in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace.

As Medicom expands their Vinyl Collectible Doll (VCD) line, they have decided to produce the TC-14 droid as a part of the collection.  Sideshow is currently distributing the VCD line in the United States.

Packaging

Medicom packages their Star Wars VCD line in a box with the character’s face on the front of the package.  Holes are cut out for the eyes and mouth.  The figure is then secured within a dual plastic tray.

The Figure

The TC-14 VCD stands approximately 8” in height and features 11 points
of articulation
(neck, 3 in the arms and 2 in each leg).  Like the
C-3PO Vinyl Collectible Doll, the TC-14 is not made of soft vinyl.

The reflective plastic piece is the same sculpt as C-3PO.  It makes
sense since the characters look exactly the same.  The only thing that
differs between the two figures is the color.

Our Opinion

It’s pretty obvious why Medicom decided to release this figure as a
part of their VCD line…it’s easy to produce a colorway if you already
have the sculpt.  I don’t think the character is an extremely popular
one from the Star Wars galaxy, but you often see TC-14 in figure lines
and games for the above reason.

Similar to most pieces in the Star Wars VCD line, Medicom has produced
a quality product.  This sculpt is more detailed than most in the line.  So it really comes down to…do you like silver or
gold?  It’s pretty much a matter of opinion.

You can pick one up at the following:
