Review: Obi-Wan Kenobi - SW [Y/AOTC] - Movie Heroes (MH03)

Posted by Paul | March 27, 2017 at 12:05 AM ET |

The 2012 Star Wars [The Phantom Menace 3D] line was the beginning of the end, but things went really awry with the 2013 Star Wars [Yoda/Attack Of The Clones] line. Let's finish up our quick look at these figures with Obi-Wan Kenobi. It's another repack from the previous Movie Heroes line.

HURRY! TBS6 Darth Revan IN STOCK At Hasbro Toy Shop!

Posted by Paul | March 25, 2017 at 06:32 AM ET |

Hurry! Darth Revan is IN STOCK at Hasbro Toy Shop! Special thanks to JTA reader Craig B. for the alert!

UPDATE: It's sold out!

Another retailer that specializes in Star Wars action figures has sustained a setback. GameStop, according to Fortune.com, will be closing 150 stores throughout 2017. It seems that R5-D4 may not be affected in the least. If you remember our exclusive insider report, it's believed to arrive April 21st (there are other details in the report too). The possibility does exist that this exclusive release may just come and go before the stores start closing, unless GameStop decides to stop providing the failing stores with new products. How insane is this? They were one of the only retailers to get the TBS6 Darth Revan wave too; it seemed like a great source for the line. It's not a great climate for retailers in general, and it's disappointing to see something else work against the Star Wars line.

Sneak Peek! TARGET Exclusive TBS6 Imperial AT-ACT Driver

Posted by Paul | March 24, 2017 at 05:11 PM ET |

We have a sneak peek of the just released TARGET exclusive The Black Series [Phase III] Imperial AT-ACT Driver. It's a decent figure, but in our opinion it just too difficult to tell if it's screen accurate. There are many source materials out there and some look like this while others do not. Our jury is still out. Although nicely painted, the tooling is apparently getting too worn as our sample has extremely loose joints.... to the point of being annoying. Look for this to appear at your local TARGET stores soon. The RDR is coming soon but you can check out our rough gallery and Collector Notes. Extra special thanks to JTA reader and friend Jaken Wraith for obtaining this sample for us. We appreciate it IMMENSELY!

UPDATE: Found! TBS6 Darth Revan/Sabine Wren Wave Hits Toys R Us!

Posted by Paul | March 22, 2017 at 08:53 PM ET |

Found! The Black Series [Phase III] Darth Revan wave has been found at Toys R Us in Frisco Texas. JTA reader Mark lets us know! It's unbelievable how long it has taken this wave to show up at TRU. What's VERY interesting about this is that the case features the new Princess Leia Organa, so it's not like these were sitting in warehouses for months.

UPDATE: Store report is from Texas and the case features the new Princess Leia Organa. I smell conspiracy theory.

TBS6 [SW40] Legacy Pack With New Darth Vader Found In Canada!

Posted by Paul | March 22, 2017 at 02:01 PM ET |

kylocollector on Instagram is reporting that The Black Series 6" Early Bird "Leacy" Pack has been found in Canada. Special thanks to General Hux for the news. Please, no more Instagram news. I can't deal with another social media outlet. :)

Even controversial eBay seller tunghori knows how to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Star Wars better. While not rare, on average it goes for about double what tunghori is offering.

With Hasbro producing so very little for 3¾" (super-articulated) figure collectors, we're curious to know if you are buying any other lines? Are you saving money instead? This is an open post to shoot the breeze about your money, and talk about the money Hasbro is potentially losing. (The Black Series 6" figures only count if you're buying another toy line.) [We're trying something new here, so please avoid taboo topics such as politics, sports, and religion.] Is it possible that we're all beginning to realize how much we can live without our hobby (as sad as it seems)? Special thanks to JTA reader and friend Ayem Mayem for the post idea.

Here it is! The Jedha Revolt four-pack has arrived in the USA at brick and mortar! JTA reader and friend Mario M. sends us this image of what he found at this local TARGET in California.

TBS6 Price Drops On Amazon… How Low Will They Go?

Posted by Paul | March 22, 2017 at 11:14 AM ET |

Things have been quiet on the new-figure-front. Now might be a great time to check out some low-priced items on Amazon. For example, TBS6 Captain Cassian Andor is so low it's been reduced to an 'add on item'. Click here to see if there's anything you have been holding out for.

Last night, Victoria from Victoria's Cantina messaged me about this Change.org petition. As you can see, she's petitioning Hasbro to bring back the super-articulated 3.75" line back into the mainstream and wants all of us to be part of it too. As you all know, the joy of collecting is a fragment of what it used to be, and we're still debating if the last half decade or so has or hasn't caused irreversible damage to this collector base. We're going to try one more time. Remember, don't be apathetic if this is your passion. We know there is a significant branch of collectors who solely collect 3.75" action figures. So please let your voice be heard!

Difficult To See The Future Is....
