It’s raining cancellations! In what is sure to be a devastating blow to collectors waiting in anticipation for The Black Series [Star Wars 40] Artoo-Detoo (R2-D2), some of our readers are receiving the dreaded email from Amazon that their long-delayed figures are ultimately being cancelled. Hasbro also stated in the Star Wars Action News article that Artoo-Detoo (R2-D2) and Han Solo were two figures still coming, so this is definitely upsetting news. Click through to read the email going out to some collectors. Special thanks to JTA reader Matthew N. for sharing his experience with us.

A recent rumor has popped up claiming that someone was seen on set wearing the famous suit during filming. There are no images of this as of now, but according to comicbookmovie.com their source is reliable. The question is, do we NEED Darth Vader in the Han Solo movie? Yes…He was used expertly in Rogue One and some may argue he had some of the best scenes, but I personally don’t think he should be stuck in every anthology film just for the sake of using him. It may water down the impact that Vader has. What are your thoughts on this rumor? Do you think we really need to see Vader in this film? In other news, Ron Howard teases us with a possible Kessel Run. Check out more of that info here at CBR.com

It’s hard to believe, but the HASCON exclusive Clone Captain Rex hasn’t budged that much on eBay as far as what it is commanding, despite being available for nearly 45 minutes on Hasbro Toy Shop today. The question is how low will he go?
JTA sponsor Dorkside Toys has a ton of brand new The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ figures that are significantly reduced in price.

The Dark Lord of the Sith finally has a Jedi Lightsaber, but he’s about to find out that it’s not that easy to corrupt a Kyber Crystal in this next entry in the Comic Research Droids Reviews. Vader had just vanquished Master Infil’a and taken his Jedi weapon, but now he must corrupt the crystal within to claim it as his own. Take a look at how Lord Vader struggles with the conflict within himself and how Anakin Skywalker fights to break through the darkness in Darth Vader- The Chosen One (Part V). Don’t forget to drop me a line with your requests for future reviews! Coming up next is the Mace Windu miniseries.

Disneystore.com has a promotion going on where you can save 20% on your order of $75 or more.

You can save a good amount by using promo code: SAVE20 and on top of that you can get free shipping on orders of $75 or more with promo code: SHIPMAGIC. It’s always great that they let you combine promo codes.
An unfortunate turn of events that our friends at Yakface.com have experienced should have been the golden opportunity to make us all reflect on what’s important and bind us all together in solidarity, but in many ways it has disgustingly become an attack on other competitor sites instead (as evidenced by some of their readers in the comments). I am not going to be long-winded, but the absolute LIES, DECEPTIONS, FALSE NARRATIVES and outright DISGUST being posted by some of you on social media and in comments is SHAMEFUL and much of it is libelous. It’s sad that your hatred for other sites, including JTA, has made you go down rabbit holes and take attention off of what Yakface.com was trying to relay to you, and especially when most of it is false and stretched. I welcome any of you to come here and discuss your issues with us or any other site on their/our own turf. We’re certainly not going to add to the mayhem outside of what gets posted here. Don’t be such cowards. This isn’t about JTA or any other site. Let go of your hate for a moment and lift up and encourage Yakface.com, for they do great things for the collecting community.
Finally, you can pre-order the exclusive Poe Dameron’s Boosted X-wing Fighter from ToysRUs.com with an October 27th availability date for $49.99 (ouch). Special thanks to JTA reader Michael M. for the alert!.
You can also PRE-ORDER the Rey (Jedi Training On Crait) Toys R Us exclusive for $34.99.

Retailer Toys R Us has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. This action will allow them to work with creditors to hopefully turnaround their current financial status. Toys R Us will operate in a “business as usual” fashion for the foreseeable future. The NY Times has the full story. (This is the “big announcement” we let you know was coming last night.)

PLEASE SEE UPDATE! Jedi Temple Archives has just learned that things are in motion right now as we speak that will materialize as a “major” Star Wars related announcement Tuesday morning. We don’t know what it’s about or in what capacity it relates to Star Wars, but it is supposedly HUGE news. Apologies in advance if whatever this is doesn’t materialize, but we were encouraged to take note that something big is coming. We will be sure to link to it if/when it goes live.
UPDATE: We have learned that the announcement has nothing to do with being directly related to Star Wars. But it does have to do with being indirectly related to Star Wars collecting. Stay tuned for the announcement tomorrow.
We’re continuing our months-long look at the new products that were released for the Force Friday II product launch. It’s now time to check out The Black Series [Phase III] Resistance Tech Rose super-articulated 3.75″ figure in our Research Droids Reviews today! We think her character is getting unnecessary flack too. 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.

So far we’ve had Force Friday in 2015. Rogue Friday in 2016. And Force Friday II in 2017. For 2018, what would be a good product line launch name for Han Solo: A Star Wars Story? Unlike our headline, we’re “thinking” that Wookiee Weekend would be a nice use of alliteration, no?
