Visual Guide Update - Dak Ralter (#25) - The Black Series

Posted by Chuck | July 31, 2014 at 09:33 PM EDT |

Dak Ralter gets a reboot in today's Visual Guide Update! Click below to check out one of the first carry-forwards from The Vintage Collection, complete with the proper name spelling! You can also read our full Research Droids Review to see just how different this figure is from his TVC counterpart.

Wolfpack Ultimate Gift Set TARGET eBay Deal!

Posted by Paul | July 31, 2014 at 08:46 PM EDT |

Get the Wolfpack Ultimate Gift Set from TARGET on their eBay store for only $24.99 (discounted down from $59.99) with FREE shipping. Special thanks to JTA reader Ben Y. for the heads up!

Our friends at Yakface.com have posted a report that the 18 figure Fall wave case assortment that BanthSkull.com/JTA revealed has been "cancelled". As evidenced by the pitiful 3.75" showing at SDCC, this makes complete sense. It's likely those 18 figures will be broken down into two more waves with the next six figure wave getting shown at NYCC and the final 3.75" six figure wave shown for Toy Fair 2015 and with the move Hasbro is making by offering solid case assortments, there may no longer be a need for mixed cases going forward. Still, more must be investigated before anything is confirmed. (The March 2015 placard dates are making MORE and MORE sense.) Yakface.com alludes to receiving future information, so we will post an update as warranted.

Posted by Chuck | July 31, 2014 at 11:21 AM EDT |

Found! More The Black Series 6-inch Deluxe Assortment Finds

Posted by Paul | July 31, 2014 at 11:20 AM EDT |

Found! We just found the new The Black Series Deluxe figures at (yawn...) TARGET in the Philly area. Oh excuse us! It's just that we have something more exciting in the works for our RDRs that we believe will make jaws drop. But don't worry, we'll get to these new store finds shortly!

The Black Series 6-inch Wave 4 Found At TARGET!

Posted by Paul | July 31, 2014 at 05:48 AM EDT |

It appears the floodgates are opening up again! JTA reader seclorus snaps us this image of wave 4 of The Black Series 6" line that was found at his local TARGET in MT. It may be time to get back out there and hunt! Let us know what you find! (It's so encouraging to see Boba Fett and the Stormtrooper hitting pegs again!)

Review: Dak Ralter - TBS [P1] - Basic (#25)

Posted by Paul | July 31, 2014 at 12:05 AM EDT |

We continue looking at new as well as some "newish" Star Wars action figures in The Black Series wave 4. It's now time for a repaint. And what a great repaint it is because Hasbro cast the face in flesh colored plastic instead of painting it that color. Check out Dak Ralter in our Research Droids Reviews today.

As always, you can also send your own personal review requests via email if you'd like to see something that we didn't cover yet.

Review: Snowtrooper Commander - TBS [P1] - Basic (#24)

Posted by Paul | July 30, 2014 at 12:40 AM EDT |

As we continue our look at new Star Wars action figures, we look at one of the nicest figures from The Black Series wave 4. Hasbro has finally gotten the Snowtrooper Commander action figure right! And Original Trilogy purists will be THRILLED that there is no clone head underneath the helmet. In fact, there isn't a removable helmet here at all! Learn more in our Research Droids Reviews today.

Review: Yoda - TBS [P1] - Basic (#22)

Posted by Paul | July 28, 2014 at 09:27 AM EDT |

We continue looking at new figures! We had some time to fully digest the Yoda [Dagobah Training] figure from The Black Series line. It's very disappointing, especially when you look at what could have been. See our full assessment on why this is the case in our Research Droids Reviews today.

SDCC 2014: Hasbro - Your Questions Answered!

Posted by Paul | July 26, 2014 at 07:07 PM EDT |

Here you go! Get ready for some more non-answers again! I also don't know how I let so many Episode VII questions get by me. We ALL should know those answers by now: HASBRO CANNOT ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT EPISODE VII. So we are NEVER going to ask them again, OK? They're on the "no no" list going forward. Whoever did ask will be banned from JTA. (Just kidding.) We do however get some cool info out of Hasbro which may be of some benefit to you, so be sure to click through for more!

It's an old SDCC exclusive, but it's quite serendipitous that it was announced during SDCC this year as a 6" exclusive now. See what you can/might expect in The Black Series line by checking out the original 3.75" scaled Shadow Scout (With Speeder Bike) from the 30 (77-07) line. See it in our Research Droids Reviews today. Be sure to leave your own thoughts in our comments section, vote in the poll or even leave comments about it on our Facebook page.

Found! Battle On Endor Toys R Us Exclusive

Posted by Paul | July 25, 2014 at 11:18 PM EDT |

Our friends at Yakface.com are reporting that the Battle On Endor Toys R Us exclusive has been found at brick and mortar. Now for the funny part. Guess how much it is? Click through to find out!

Worried about missing him on HasbroToyShop this year? RobotKingdom.com has the Jabba's Throne SDCC exclusive up for pre-order for an acceptable $79.90. The issue? The shipping. I tested an order for myself and it came to $40. But if you can't take the risk of missing out from HTS, then you may want to order it now so you don't lose out on it. Limit of one per person and they aren't guaranteeing any mint pieces.

R5-G19: Definitely Utilizes Build A Droid Sculpt

Posted by Paul | July 25, 2014 at 09:40 AM EDT |

At Toy Fair this year we reported that although Hasbro showed R5-G19 with a Build A Droid sculpt that the final release would be an all-new figure. We can unequivocally confirm to you today that the final release will indeed sport the Build A Droid sculpt. It will NOT be an all-new figure as Hasbro first indicated to us. This will elate some and disappoint others, but it gives us greater hope that the rumored C-3PO The Black Series 3.75" figure may also likely sport the Build A Droid sculpt too. We'll all find that out that tidbit later today.

UPDATE: UK Disney Store Has Talking Chewbacca For Order Online!

Posted by Paul | July 25, 2014 at 08:13 AM EDT |

With special thanks to JTA UK reader Slinky Sid for the alert, the Talking Chewbacca is available to order (it looks to be in stock and not a pre-order at the moment) on Disney's UK website. Still no sign of the Boba Fett figure yet. Check it out. It looks great!

UPDATE: JTA reader Joe G. let us know that he found the Talking Chewbacca in the USA in Indiana as well. So these are arriving worldwide apparently.
