No, we didn’t forget about Star Wars Rebels. It’s been a while since the last Rebels Reviews, and you can thank flu season and an overstuffed non-JTA schedule for the delay.

BigBadToyStore.com has put two walmart exclusives up for pre-order at low prices. The Black Series 3.75″ AT-ST Walker for only $24.99 and the Smart R2-D2 for $29.99! These are great prices, especially since a LOT of Walmarts haven’t even marked down their AT-ST’s at all.
Toys R Us is acting Craitzy with their exclusive Rey (Jedi Training) figure. The action taken have been a little Crait-Crait. JTA Facebook reader Farhan received a cancellation notice for the Rey (Jedi Training) *Crait) 6″ figure despite it showing in stock and available for pre-order as we post this. This might be better for everyone in the long run because ToysR Us.com is running a promotion which marks this 6″ figure down to $29. Let us know your experiences in the comments!

You saw our report that the Rapid Fire AT-ACT was going to be part of Toys R Us’ Black Friday sale this year, and it looks like we have some quantitative proof right now. Although full price, this store has allocated retail space for them prior to Black Friday. JTA reader Augustin found this at his local Toys R Us store this morning. It will be interesting to see how well these move at $99.99. Let us know if your stores are getting these also!
UPDATE: They’re IN STOCK right now at ToysRUs.com for $99.99!

Update: You can pick this up on Amazon for the same price, with free Prime shipping. Thanks to Steve for letting us know in our comments!
This image showed up over in the Sideshow Collector’s forums. It looks like Hot Toys will be releasing a The Empire Strikes Back version of Darth Vader. With multiple Darth Vader releases from Hot Toys already, I’m not too excited about another one. That display base, however, is pretty amazing!
Hot Toys also officially announced the Praetorian Guard (With Double Blade) Sixth Scale Figure. It’s a good bet we will be getting all versions of the Praetorian Guard. Click here to check out the full gallery.

Hi. We’re Toys R Us. We’re in Chapter 11 and we want 16 million dollars in bonuses to pay Top Executives. Truth is stranger than fiction, folks. The Wall Street Journal has the full story.
It seems that anything online (and in a social type of setting) is harmful to your mental health anymore. Forbes posted a fantastic recent article outlining six ways that social media is affecting the mental health of those who constantly utilize it, and with really no surprise, EA is in the middle of a controversy that there new Star Wars game was really just gambling masked in Star Wars which is all social media based. We’re beginning to believe that people should probably step away from these social media outlets and related things. What we have all personally witnessed online and they affects they’ve clearly had on people are frightening. And now it’s starting to affect younger minds. It’s time to get the kids (as well as the rest of us) outside and in the fresh air again. Anyway, check out the article on EA at CNBC.com. It’s another frightening example of what can happen in the social media/gaming arena. Remember how hard it was to give up Candy Crush? It seems things are headed in the right direction for EA, but it’s scary to think what might have been.
JTA reader and friend Steve U. sends us an image of the Toys R Us Black Friday flyer. They are also getting the Rapid Fire Imperial AT-ACT in stock for the holidays and they will be selling it for $99.99.
EmpireToyShop.com customers get FREE SHIPPING on all orders over $29 using promo code “jeditemple” at checkout! Plenty of Black Series, Marvel Legends, Bandai Star Wars, NECA and more in stock!
