Even though Solo: A Star Wars Story is on the horizon and The Last Jedi a hazy memory of the past already, there’s still some promo work for the latest trilogy movie. For the European disc release of The Last Jedi Mark Hamill did some promotion work in Ireland and gave interviews. French magazine Le Point published their interview with Mark Hamill yesterday. And Mark Hamill had a few things to say about The Last Jedi and Star Wars in general. Click through to read about it.

JTA reader Matthew C. sends us an image (from a Pixel Dan YouTube video) of what “photorealistic” technology might look like on a The Vintage Collection figure. Now, keep in mind that this is a Mattel figure, so Hasbro’s might look very different than this. And they’d have to improve the technology before making it final. Anyway, let us know what you think about this in our comments.

The Kessel Guard is one of the nicest 5POA figures we have ever seen from Hasbro. Lando isn’t too shabby either.

Will Mara Jade Be In Episode IX?

Website That Hashtag Show reports that the casting process for Episode IX is underway. And apparently, JJ Abrams and casting director Nina Gold are looking for the following:

a female lead, 40-50 years old, to play the role of “MARA.”

It has to be said that it’s common practice to use code names instead of the real character names in casting, so it doesn’t necessarily mean that Mara Jade will be in Episode IX. Episode IX is still scheduled to begin filming in July, so we should know more very soon. Who could this 40-50 year old woman be? Someone who takes over from Leia? Rey’s mother? Holdo’s sister? Or Mara Jade after all? Speculate away!

For Star Wars and Marvel fans who still prefer DVDs and Blu-Rays over digital, you might not be able to shop at Amazon for your physical media needs. Unless, of course, you’re a Prime member. That’s because the online giant has made some recent Star Wars and Marvel Cinematic Universe DVD and Blu-Ray titles to be Prime exclusives. (You’ll still be able to get them from other retailers.) Engadget has the full story. Special thanks to JTA reader and friend Mike R. for the alert!

Are You Stocking Up Where You Can For Sail Barge Patrons?

eBay seller tunghori still have quite a few The Vintage Collection (or TVC-quality) figures IN STOCK. Don’t forget to pick up Vizam for your new Jabba’s Sail Barge (The Khetanna). Remember, Hasbro is retooling the railings on the Barge so that his AWESOME gun can be attached. There are other figures as well including the rare red-bandana Kithaba figure and Princess Leia (Slave Outfit). These are reasonably priced and as the aftermarket values for skiff guards and related figures skyrockets, get a few while you can for acceptable prices!

All of these store reports we’re receiving are disconcerting. JTA reader cress has purchased all of the latest The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ figures he wanted for $5.00 each. We also have seen reports of $7 and $9 figures too. After the buyers realize that they made NO MONEY on these figures, Walmart will be the next retailer not to want to take a chance on the Hasbro Star Wars brand. These assortment numbers need to change more frequently so they can discontinue old stock in a more organized fashion. This insanity happens all of the time now.

IT IS TRUE! ALL OF IT! Here is ANOTHER unbelievable find (that I am UNABLE to confirm)! In all my life collecting, I have NEVER seen action figures on clearance go this low. I have seen $.100, but never $.03. Commenters are claiming that Brickseek has older The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ figures listed for this price, but I am unable to confirm anything similar myself. There are also comments that it affects the new Death Star Commander too. Special thanks to friend Derek T. for alerting me to this image from The Black Series 6″ Collectors Facebook page!

UPDATE! We have a photo of JTA reader Brett P. scanning the 6″ figures at his local local Walmart. $0.03 EACH! INSANITY! Click through for the proof!

Unbelievable! Reports are pouring in from toy runners that the BB-8 Mega Playset has been marked down as low as $30 at some Walmart stores. We are getting plenty of reports that it is also found for $45. Special thansk to JTA readers Allen P. and vikingrobot and others for the reports and images. This item is still over $100 on Walmart.com. What ashame. This is a fantastic playset. It should have performed better. Perhaps get rid of the droid-shaped gimmick next time.

Dear Hasbro, Why?

The Black Series line is rich with exclusives in 2018. We have Chewbacca, the Mimban Stormtrooper, the Gamorrean Guard, Commander Wolffe, hopefully Zuckuss will be sold somewhere too.
There may be some need for exclusives, from a business standpoint, however, for anyone not living in the USA exclusives are what sucks the joy out of collecting. Some exclusives never make it to other territories, and when they do, they come at a price… Read more after the jump!
