Where Are All Of Those TBS6 Product Leaks?

A little birdie just told us that The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ figures due for Force Friday II (whatever characters they may be) have FINALLY shipped and are en route to retail. As you know, there has been much speculation on why these case assortments have not leaked yet (on eBay and even brick and mortar). Here is your answer. It looks as if everyone might have an equal chance now since Hasbro intentionally delayed their shipment to prevent…. you know…. as much abuse as possible.

Target.com has put their The Black Series [P3] 6″ Rogue One 3-pack on clearance for $28.98. Might be a good time to grab it if you haven’t yet. You can also get free ship to store which will save on the shipping cost.

Obi-Wan Standalone Film Finally Confirmed By Lucasfilm

That’s right! After much speculation and many rumors, Lucasfilm has confirmed today that Ewan McGregor will HOPEFULLY get a chance to reprise his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi for the now confirmed Obi-Wan standalone film. So far, Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, The Hours)  is in talks for a director. I wonder why Disney didn’t take the opportunity at D23 to officially announce it like most expected. You can read more about it from The Hollywood Reporter. I know I am excited about this, how about you?

We have learned from our readers that Hasbro had multiple commercials of upcoming The Last Jedi products on their YouTube channel and they were all pulled shortly after posting (well, about 24 hours after the fact). We missed them completely. For a company adamant on keeping secrecy in effect, you’d think something like this wouldn’t slip through the cracks until Force Friday II.

Holy Frijoles! That's A Lot Of 40th Anniversary Figures!

3 Chewbaccas, 16 Jawas, and 44 Death Squad Commanders! This isn’t a third grade math problem or the start of a joke, this is what JTA reader Agustín came across while on business in Monterrey, Mexico in a store called Julio Cepeda. We share in Agustín’s concern of how Monterrey has this many in stock, meanwhile tons of Walmarts and TRU’s have only received 1, 2, or even ZERO cases. ¡Ay Caramba! Thanks again to Agustín for this report!

We thank you profusely for all of the store reports, images, Facebook and Twitter alerts for all new The Last Jedi merchandise. Because other media outlets are posting so many of these images and specific details on products, case assortments, official press imagery/assets and store exclusives information, we reached out to Litzky PR to ask once again if any of this information is “fair game” and if these things could be posted on our site. After all, we have been sadly sitting on all of these “breaking reveals” for months now. It’s been killing us. We were told unequivocally “no” that Litzky’s/Hasbro’s original rules are still in effect. They also let us know that they are hyper-aware of those who are breaching this understanding and are working internally to address these issues. This means our hands are tied at the moment. We tried to act on your behalf and get permission, but were denied. Hasbro has a scheduled/intended protocol for The Last Jedi product line. And while it doesn’t make sense when stuff is already in stores and on eBay, we have to abide for the time being. We know how frustrating this is (we’re dying inside), but there will be consequences for those sharing assets and details not intended for release just yet. We apologize in advance, but we’re doing our best to meet our audience’s needs while respecting Hasbro’s wishes at the same time. Please stay tuned as we learn more. You should always remember that JTA typically knows of what’s coming nine (9) months in advance. We will always remain groundbreaking in that regard. And we’ll point out when those “rumors” become facts (whether we’re credited or not). Please know that we don’t just wait for access to retailers products order lists to break news like what’s exactly happening now. We are actually investigating what’s coming our way deep into the future. We do our best to tease what’s coming. We will continue to do this, but blatant reveals, well, not until Hasbro gives the green light.

TBS [SW40] Wave 1 Found At Toys R Us

Today a friend of mine managed to find wave 1 of the 40th Anniversary at his local Toys R Us in Amherst, NY. He said the entire wave was there, but he only bought himself a Artoo-Detoo and a Han Solo. Are these still being found in their distribution centers or are these coming from somewhere else? Have you seen these pop up in your TRU recently? Thanks to JTA reader and friend Charlie for the info.

Here’s a blast from the past. If this was reported seven years ago, then I totally missed it. Remember when Star Wars toys came with awesome product catalogs? During The Vintage Collection/The Clone Wars [Shadow Of The Dark Side] line Hasbro made a beautiful one. It was inserted into vehicles and Battle Packs and stuff like that. Click the image below and look carefully at the figures shown. Do you notice an oddity? Was that one figure intended for The Vintage Collection at one point? Was it just a mistake and accidentally printed in the catalog? Either way, we still need it updated on a modern Kenner inspired vintage card back, so Hasbro please take note!

Wow! They’re history now, but an eBay seller from Italy had 11 SWCO TBS6 [SW40] Luke Skywalker (X-wing Pilot) figures for $49.99 each. You might want to stalk this eBay seller to see if anymore go up for auction again! Then again, you may NOT want to do that.

For those of you keeping track, it looks like the last batch of the Ponda Baba/Proto Fett wave that just showed up in stock is already prepping to ship thanks to this image from JTA reader and friend Mark M. What is INTERESTING however is that for the first time ever (for Mark), these items are shipping out of a California (CA) warehouse (he lives in Texas). Now, maybe that in and of itself isn’t peculiar and it’s not that strange that these are shipping from another warehouse, but could it be that more have just arrived from China and the first fulfillment center is in CA which is why his order is being shipped form there? Thoughts? I ask because could be there be hope that these will have wider availability (at least online) since there hasn’t been one store report of these yet?
