Diorama parts maker Hole in the Ground Productions just released two new items today. I’m very impressed by the turnaround time on these as the prototype was just posted a few days ago on Facebook. The conference table is a whopping 10 inches in diameter!! According to the announcement, “the decals are not done yet for the conference table so if you order before they are, the decals will be mailed out later.” Hopefully with the ‘garbage masher’ door we’ll eventually see some trash compactor walls to go along with it!

Walmart Exclusive 6" Mimban Stormtrooper Hitting Again!

In what will go down as one of retail’s worst-handled exclusives of all time, more and more Walmarts are getting dumped with loads of the 6″ Stormtrooper (Mimban) figure. I have yet to see this figure in the wild, but we’re getting more reports that this is hitting once again just this week. Special thanks to JTA reader Ben H. for the image and story.

And Now The TVC Combat Assault Tank Is At $29 On Amazon

Amazon lowered its price for the TVC Combat Assault Tank once more. Now you can get it for $29. If you still haven’t bought the vehicle yet, now may be the right time to add it to your collection. Or you may always wait for the inevitable $10 price tag that virtually any Star Wars vehicle will have sooner or later. So much for thinking that $37.99 was the end of price cuts for this set. Thanks to JTA friend Steven for the alert!

Good News For Star Wars Collectors In The EU

Earlier today the EU parliament signed the trade agreement between EU and Japan, JEFTA. In short, almost all trade tariffs between the EU and Japan will be abolished. The agreement will come into effect on February 1st. This means that collectors in the EU who import Star Wars figures from Japan won’t have to fear customs anymore. Which in return means that total prices (selling price with added shipping and fees) for Japanese Star Wars figures will drop. Until now Japanese etailers often marked down prices on customs forms, so that the collector won’t have to pay fees. This only worked if you ordered maybe one or two figures at once, otherwise customs would open and inspect the package and demand their fees. This will no longer be the case soon and collectors won’t have to put up with customs anymore when importing from Japan.

Chinese factory workers producing toys for Hasbro, Disney, Lego and Mattel and are being subjected to “nightmare” working conditions in the run-up to Christmas, an investigation has alleged.

The report, titled “A Nightmare for Workers,” shows findings from campaign groups China Labor Watch, ActionAid, CiR, and Solidar Suisse, who sent undercover investigators to four factories that produced toys sold at Walmart, Costco, Target and other international retailers. (more….)


It must be exhausting making all of that 5POA crap!

Score For Solo: A Star Wars Story Disqualified From Oscars

Variety reports in an exclusive article on their website that the score for Solo: A Star Wars Story composed by John Powell with some new themes by John Williams has been disqualified from the upcoming Academy Awards.
The reason? The score was entered too late. Deadline was November 15th and apparently Lucasfilm/Disney missed it. You wonder how that can happen. I don’t think Solo’s score would have had any realistic chances at winning the award, but it’s still quite embarrassing to miss the deadline.

Walmart's Stock Of TVC Figures Not All Gloom And Doom

JTA reader Andrew writes in to share his good fortune with his local Ohio Walmart and The Vintage Collection

Despite the gloom of boxes worth of wave 1 hitting Walmart in droves this month, All is not lost, guys! I just dropped into the Wadsworth, Oh Walmart Supercenter and found, to my amazement, a treasure trove of Waves 2 and 3. I counted 3 Dr. Aphras and 2 Hovertank pilots, and plenty of Young Han and Range Troopers! Granted, the stock workers got lazy and hid the bulk of the new figures on the shelf above the pegs, but I did my duty and pulled them all down, then squeezed them onto the pegs to be found better. I’m personally set with TVC so far, so I didn’t grab any (tho I did pick up a Black Series Bespin Han that’s been there for a week), but hopefully this means others will be able to plug holes for a decent retail price.

Happy holiday hunting, guys! There hope yet for Star Wars collector’s this Christmas!
