This is quite a surprise. A JTA reader who has asked to remain anonymous has located and purchased The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ TARGET exclusive Princess Leia (Bespin Escape) figure in Los Angeles CA (At a TARGET store obviously). They’re out there, folks! BY the way, the sketch of Leia on the packaging is dreadful.

By popular request, we’re adding The Original Trilogy Collection Jedi High Council Scene Packs which were all Toys R Us exclusives from 2004. Hasbro saved the best set for last and it’s only because of one figure. Shaak Ti turned heads and was a significant ugrade from the one released in the basic figure line a couple of years earlier. It still holds up well today. Let’s finish up with Jedi High Council (Featuring Shaak Ti, Agen Kolar & Stass Allie) (Scene 4). It’s the focus of our Research Droids Reviews today!

The Future Of Star Wars On Disney's Streaming Service

Variety has an interesting exclusive article about Disney’s plans to make MCU shows for their upcoming streaming service. That alone would not be worth mentioning really, what is worth mentioning is that Variety also reports that the MCU shows will not just feature main characters from the movies, but that each character, such as Loki or Scarlet Witch, will be played by their MCU actors, Tom Hiddelston and Elizabeth Olsen. What could that mean for Star Wars? Click through for some speculation!

How Would Trade Tariffs Affect Star Wars Toys?

The USA and China are currently engaged in a trade war, it’s not the taxation of trade routes to outlying star systems that is in question, the US administration is of the opinion that China is taking unfair advantage of free trade, so more and more imported goods from China are subject to trade tariffs. What would happen should the US administration impose a 25% tariff on virtually anything produced in China? Including toys? How would and could Hasbro react? What effects would consumers feel and what scenarios are there? Click through for details!

For the thirteenth release in New Zealand Mint’s Star Wars Classic collection they have chosen the tyrannical Emperor Palpatine. Another great choice! A masterful and patient manipulator, he carefully played countless people. His intelligence coupled with his desire for power makes him one of the most formidable villains you’ll encounter in fiction. Click through for more details!

Sneak Peek! The Vintage Collection Range Trooper (VC128)

We have a sneak peek of The Vintage Collection Range Trooper (VC128) for you. The figure is the best iteration of the character in any scale. In my opinion, it blows away the color scheme of The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ figure. And it goes without saying that it is a world away from the satisfactory 5POA Force Link 2.0 version. Hasbro nailed the likeness of the figure perfectly, and the deco is a pure pleasure. The lines are super clean and free from any sloppily applied details. The articulation is better than I expected, but the inherent nature of the figure’s design prevents it from being the most “mobile” action figure Hasbro has ever produced. The most interesting detail here is the white gun. Both the 6″ figure and the 5POA figure come with black blasters, but Hasbro corrected the error with the TVC version. We should count ourselves fortunate. The figure is hitting in the USA as we speak, and collectors can barely process this since the case assortment hasn’t even gone up for pre-order yet. But Walmart (of all places) is the retailer receiving them. Truth is stranger than fiction!

More Hasbro Star Wars Stuff Dumped At Ollie's

Ollie’s is apparently the dumping ground for the ton of unsold Hasbro Star Wars products that either never made it to retail or stuff that retailer gave up on after trying to sell it. JTA reader Edward D. finds something new every day he visits his local store. And the latest addition is the Walmart exclusive TBS [P3] 3.75″ AT-ST. The kicker? It’s only $10!
