Congratulations To Andy Ochiltree And Thank You!

JTA would like to wish Andy Ochiltree, former Senior Manager, Global Brand Marketing, Star Wars, well. He received a promotion and is now the Senior Manager, Global Brand Development & Marketing for NERF. He has done a great deal to get us where we are with The Vintage Collection. We’d also like to welcome Patrick Schneider who will take Andy’s place and former title. Patrick is also in charge of case assortments, and we will be holding him very accountable for his case assortment choices (as he already knows from our Toy Fair conversation). 🙂

Patrick, along with Joe Ninivaggi and Steve Evans will continue overseeing the Star Wars Brand.

Hasbro, just to provide you with a single example that JTA isn’t the only fan site desperate to see the Original 92 Kenner figures updated in the modern line, please check out our friend Adam Pawlus’ post at Galactic Hunter. He lists the same characters we have been campaigning for a while now. And he’s right. They need to get made stat. We couldn’t agree more with him. Check it out!

(Thumbnail stolen from BanthaSkull.com.) We have eleven (11) good reasons why you should INVEST in the HasLab Jabba’s Sail Barge (The Khetanna). If history isn’t any indication that we should, at the very least, learn from our mistakes, I don’t know what is. Click through to see why the $500 backing price is only the jumping off point for where this thing’s value can go.

Don't Have $500 In One Fell Swoop? How About $91 A Month?

Here is a tip for you that might make the backing of Jabba’s Sail Barge (The Khetanna) a reality if $500 is just too much at once for your budget. We have NO IDEA why Hasbro gave us all such a sudden and short window to promote and support this item, but here is an option for you that might be more realistic.If you back this vehicle using PayPal Credit, the $500 won’t charge until April 3rd, and then you have six months to pay it off, which comes to about $91 a month. It’s an option for those who are waiting for income tax return checks and who just need more time to save up money. Good luck. Special thanks to JTA reader Jimmy K. for the idea. Back the Khetanna HERE. (Remember, we are NOWHERE near making this a reality yet.)

There is rightfully a lot of angst with international collectors over securing the Khetanna Sail Barge. If you currently live outside the USA, this is YOUR CHANCE to let Hasbro know that you desperately want to back this great vehicle. In our comments, please express your desire to back this item and also please list your country. This will give Hasbro a baseline of what they may need to do next to get international collectors to become a part of this campaign. Hasbro is watching, so be sure to leave your comments right away!

Yeah, baby! You read that right. We are TRULY getting back to the good old days when Hasbro focused on the best line in the world: The Vintage Collection. JTA has learned that there will be a The Vintage Collection focused San Diego Comic-Con exclusive this year! Feel free to speculate on what it will be in our comments!

Despite what you may have read or seen elsewhere, The Black Series [Phase III] red/black packaging will not be changing until 2019 the earliest (and it may go beyond that). It will not update with the Solo: A Star Wars Story product launch. This was confirmed by Steve Evans at the Hasbro Toy Fair Fan Event today during the Q&A session.
