Check Out The Mandalorian's Rifle!

Over the weekend Jon Favreau posted a picture of the rifle the Mandalorian will use in the show on Instagram. And it seems it’s a clear reference to the rifle Boba Fett used in The Holiday Special cartoon segment. And who knows, maybe it even is Boba Fett’s rifle, unless this design is more generic. The action figure that comes with that gun can’t be revealed soon enough!

One of the greatest things about publishing the vintage Kenner reviews is to read the feedback from our audience. Your engagement has been very rewarding to all that read them, and we’re thankful for all of the childhood stories you share, the trivia many of you know behind so many action figures and the variations that exist throughout the world. One detail that I knew about but buried deep in my subconscious was brought up again in our Princess Leia Organa (Boushh Disguise) review. (more….)

Star Wars Author Chuck Wendig Fired By Marvel

Chuck Wendig, known among Star Wars fans as the author of the Aftermath trilogy, has been fired by Marvel comics today. Wendig announced that on his official Twitter feed. Wendig was supposed to write the 5 part Star Wars miniseries “Shadow of Vader” for Marvel, which is supposed to be launched in January 2019. Actually, the series had only been announced a few day ago at NYCC. Wendig, who already wrote issues 1-3 will no longer write issues 4 and 5 and another unnamed Star Wars comic book. Wendig has his own theory about why he was fired (because of toxic Star Wars haters), official word is he was fired by Marvel because of his very frequent Twitter rage rants and outbursts. The last one happened only a very short while ago and featured some rather crass language. It remains to be seen if Wendig will keep writing Star Wars novels for Lucasfilm now that he has been fired by Marvel. It’s also unknown at this moment if Shadow of Vader will go ahead with a new author or not. The comic has not been solicited yet.

Is Retail Actually Improving For Star Wars?

JTA reader and friend Danny R. sends in an image to us reflecting the new life breathed into Walmart stores as of late. While I cannot say my store looks anywhere as stocked as his store does, I can say that I have witnessed signs of life that are both comforting and therapeutic. Philly was “Hasbrotopia” during the Golden Age of Collecting. For the last five years, it has become a barren wasteland. But I was one of the fortunate ones who found wave 3 of The Vintage Collection arrive (before I received my supply from my Asian sources) and General Veers has just begun to hit my local Walgreens. Before this, I didn’t find ONE Walgreens Star Wars exclusive, and there is a store on every corner out here. Plus, I expect to see the 6″ Mimban Stormtrooper hit shortly as well. Oh, and in typical fashion, TARGET has pretty much held it together well without issue, although their mainline stock is mostly dreadful. In short, I do see improvements. Do you?

S.H.Figuarts Count Dooku Available For Pre-Order Now!

That was quick! Only a short while after Episode III Obi-Wan S.H.Figuarts announced Count Dooku yesterday and he’s already available for pre-order now! Unfortunately, Count Dooku is a web exclusive, which means anyone not pre-ordering him will have to pay a lot of money on the aftermarket! So hurry! Count Dooku is available at most of the usual Japanese etailers. I secured my figure already. Count Dooku was my most anticipated prequel figure and I’m glad I can finally add him to the collection. Count Dooku will be released at the end of April 2019. So patience is in order. The figure comes with two heads, cloth cape, lightsaber, the usual extra hands and even one hand with Sith lightning. Check out more photos here!

JTA reader Kieran C. had the opportunity to talk to Steve Evans at NYCC. He wanted to know if Disney’s royalty fees might prevent Hasbro from doing more TVC figures. It has been speculated that production costs for TVC and the Black Series might basically be the same but that TVC has smaller margins, which results in fewer new figures for the line. Steve Evans’ answer however paints a somewhat different picture. Click through for what he said!
