If you’re in the market for a reduced-priced vehicle from The Vintage Collection, Hasbro Toy Shop’s eBay store still has merchandise from which you can choose. We’re specifically talking about the Imperial Combat Assault Tank which is a steal at $40. Don’t forget. The MSRP on this beauty was $79.99! By the way, NOT on sale in the eBay store: anything TVC Original Trilogy related.

JTA regular Matthew Cohen spotted the TVC Combat Assault Tank at a Target in Brooklyn today, sold at regular MSRP. Also in the store were a lot of TVC Stormtrooper Hans (much more of him than TBS Trash Compactor Luke). Anyone who didn’t get the Tank when it was discounted online and is still looking for it might want to check out their local Target!

You may ask what Tom Hanks is doing on JTA. Well, Tom Hanks appeared on Jimmy Kimmel the other day and it was there that Tom Hanks talked about the very strict rules Disney have for their stars when they are promoting a movie (Toy Story 4 in Hanks’ case). And it’s interesting to see what rules there are. Disney is more or less providing pre-fabricated bullet points for the stars and even anticipate various questions asked by the press and tell their stars what to reply when they get asked these questions. And of course Disney also tell their stars what is not allowed to talk about at all. And this leads us to Star Wars. Click through to learn more!

Vintage Kenner RDRs Redux: Snaggletooth - SW - 1979

Dates For Star Wars Celebration 2020 Announced!

The official Star Wars website has announced the dates for the upcoming 2020 Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim!
The event will take place August 27-30, 2020 in Anaheim, California. Tickets go on sale on June 21 at 9am Pacific Time! Will you attend? And will you go to Galaxy’s Edge with thousands of other fans? I wonder if Galaxy’s Edge will ease up on its “no cosplay costumes” rule while SWCC is held in Anaheim.

Be Careful What You Wish For?

Some collectors have been very unhappy with modern day 5 POA 3.75 inch Star Wars figures. They say that what used to be good enough 40 years ago doesn’t cut it anymore in the modern day and that 3.75 in figures should all be super articulated. So some collectors vehemently called for the death of the modern 5 POA 3.75 inch line. And now it seems they may get their wish. But in the process everyone loses and no one really wins anything. Why? Click through for a discussion!

The End Result of Poor Distribution: Walmart Edition

Yesterday I went to a liquidation store because I knew they had star wars figures. I just didn’t realize how many figures they had… There were cases upon cases full of Cassian and Jyn, and the remaining third of the stack was split between Death Troopers, Scarif Troopers, Lando, and Ackbar.

Plot Synopsis For Episode IX Has Leaked?

YouTube Channel Star Wars Theory received the alleged plot synopsis for Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker. Now, we cannot say of course if this leak is legit or fake, but the synopsis is consistent with previous leaks, which still means nothing, but at least it sounds plausible. By now you know the drill: if you want to learn more, then click through, if you want to know nothing, well, I advise you to stay away from this article or else you will be spoiled.
