First Order Stormtrooper

Well, this is odd. Unless this is a Hot Toys release, Sideshow Collectibles just announced another Darth Maul 1:6 Scale Figure, which goes against their philosophy to redo the same character twice. We actually aren't complaining, but it's interesting that they're doing a new version of him. It's bound to be incredible however!

Rebels Saga Legends Will Ring Up For Less Than $2

Posted by Paul | July 04, 2015 at 11:21 AM EDT |

As a follow up to our previous story, we can confirm that if you have any straggling Rebels Saga Legends figures in your local TARGET store that they will ring up for a piddly $1.78 each (via LRT/not register), the last price in their computers.

Happy Fourth Of July!

The Black Series 6" Fans' Choice Poll is now live at StarWars.com and there are some great choices. Leave your thoughts in our comments! (Hey, just so you know, General Grievous is already coming, don't waste your votes on him!)

And The Winner "Almost" Is....

Posted by Paul | July 02, 2015 at 08:57 AM EDT |

We should be hearing from Hasbro shortly about how to vote in the final stage of The Black Series 6" Fans' Choice Poll. If you're interested in seeing who the clear leader in this poll is (and how it will influence or not influence you to vote in the final round at StarWars.com), then click through to see who that candidate is at the moment. The only issue we see with it so far is that Rebelscum.com (and maybe one other site) has not reported their results yet. Data will certainly change a bit when that becomes public knowledge. JediDefender.com has put together their own little scientific results of the top ranking candidates.

Rebels Line Look No Longer Recognized By TARGET Computer

Posted by Paul | July 01, 2015 at 05:01 PM EDT |

This really isn't anything too newsworthy, but it's more likely than not that if you find a Rebels figure at you local TARGET store that the system won't recognize the UPC any longer. While we understand the need for retail to prepare for The Force Awakens line, do any of you find it odd that Hasbro just didn't continue this assortment number to keep product active during the live airings of the show? We hope that most of these Rebels figures make their way into the new line look this September, especially Chopper. Special thanks to friend Chris S. for the image!

We Told You He Was All-New Since Day One - Here Is Your Proof

Posted by Paul | June 30, 2015 at 11:50 PM EDT |

[sarcasm] For those of you who have been in denial since it was revealed, like my good friend Rum Sleg believed, that the Jabba's Rancor Pit Jabba The Hutt is NOT an all-new figure, well, we can direct you to unequivocal proof that this is true now. GalacticHunter.com has comparison shots of the 2010 Jabba versus the ALL-NEW 2015 Jabba The Hutt. You're welcome. [/sarcasm] (We say this all with a smile.)

UPDATE: This post is sarcasm and humorously in good fun directed to longtime JTA friend Rum Sleg with whom I had an entertaining back and forth with whether or not this Jabba was new. Some have taken offense to it, so apologies if that applies. I honestly don't jibe anyone that I don't genuinely like and respect. Please don't take our posts so seriously. Instead, rejoice that we have an all-new Jabba!

Here are your Top 6 choices that we are forwarding on to Hasbro for you. We hope your favorites made the cut!

Review: Heroes And Villains - R - TARGET Exclusive

Posted by Paul | June 30, 2015 at 07:43 AM EDT |

Our "Rumor Report" On The Black Series 6" Now Confirmed!

Posted by Paul | June 28, 2015 at 12:08 PM EDT |

We told you the proof of our BREAKING NEWS report was forthcoming almost a week ago.... and here it is. We feel this newly confirmed information should definitely affect how you vote for The Black Series 6" Fans' Choice poll. Of course nothing is 100% until confirmed by Hasbro, but this is the next best thing. As you can see, "CW Captain" does NOT have the same product number as Clone Commander Cody and we can't imagine ANYTHING else being called "Episode III Gene" other than General Grievous. C-3PO and Jango Fett are obviously self-explanatory. Lastly, while we were hoping for a Clone Commander or Clone Lieutenant, the Episode II Clone Trooper in this list has the same product number as the Clone Trooper Captain. Click the image for all of the juicy tidbits. Out of respect to our source, we blacked out information that could possibly spill too much information. By the way, we have no idea what Black Series 6 Inch Figure with product code A4301 could be since A4301 is the assortment number for this entire line.

You might be tired of Sideshow's clones like we are, but we have to admit that ARC Clone Trooper: Echo (Phase II Armor) is incredible and a perfect template for future ARC troopers from The Clone Wars television show. See this beautiful figure 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. Click the banner below for the direct link to the review! 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.

Tell Us How You Feel About The Hasbro Fans' Choice TBS6 Poll!

Posted by Paul | June 27, 2015 at 12:09 PM EDT |

We've been in overdrive organizing this poll that we haven't even opened up a discussion about your thoughts on it. While some of you have directly voted your disdain for this Fans' Choice Poll (midichlorians was a choice,so was "why isn't there a 3.75" poll?"), we thought we'd publish a second article for you to address, complain or just generally talk about this history changing Fan's Choice poll. On your mark, get set, GO!
