Let's check out The Inquisitor's TIE Advanced Prototype. Could this be the rumored Darth Vader's TIE Fighter redo... or not? Either way, this is another nice vehicle.

Imperial Shadow Squadron

Conspiracy? Freaky Coincidence? Or Just Bad Luck?

Posted by Paul | October 17, 2014 at 08:01 PM EDT |

You know what Obi-Wan says about "luck" so it can't be that. It's often said that truth is stranger than fiction. And we believe this definitely applies to the recent Star Wars "Shadow Of The Dark Side" vehicle two-packs showing up at both Kmart and Ollie's, especially when it comes to faithful JTA reader Mike R.'s own purchases. He sends us a nearly unbelievable tale of what was "wrong" with almost every single vehicle he bought in these Special Value multipacks. Were they all (in one form or another) reject vehicles? Or did they just coincidentally have one problem or another? You better check out the contents of your boxes, because you probably won't believe what Mike has discovered with his own. You know that we are generally conspiracy theorists, but will this tale also bring you to the dark side of faith as well? Click through for more....

Yours truly hasn't had the best luck at TARGET. But I was quite elated to see remnants of wave 4 on the pegs. Now all that's happening is that Yoda is multiplying like bunny rabbits. Those jerks at BanthaSkull.com have already stolen my thunder with this article since they posted a relatively similar article idea before me, but one thing is for sure. Yoda is clearly passe! Expect him to grow in true Fibonacci sequence fashion!
