Walmart Is Clearing Shelves Across The Country

It seems like every day we get a new report of clearance items at Walmart stores throughout the US with ever-decreasing prices. It seems to be a large push of what looks like every Star Wars product in their toy aisles from The Black Series 6″ & 3.75″ to 5POA and everything in between. Is this happening at your local Walmarts? Click through to see some examples.

New Funko Pop! Walmart Exclusives On The Way!

Walmart may be scalping their own stock of TBS6 [40] Wave 2 for $46 each, but hopefully that won’t happen to these! Funko releases two new Pop! 3-pack Walmart Exclusives. The Ewok (Teebo, Chirpa, Logray) 3-pack and the Cloud City (Lobot, Ugnaught, Bespin Guard) 3-pack. You can find more info in Funko’s Blog.

Ron Howard makes some comments about his first adventure in A Galaxy Far, Far Away on Twitter. He discusses how he has been around Star Wars basically since the beginning. Also, TMZ asks George Lucas his thoughts on Ron Howard’s journey into Star Wars and Lucas also gets some shots in at the fake Autograph seekers (pretty funny, worth a watch). And Ron Howard’s letter defending The Phantom Menace & Jake Llyod’s performance. Come on in and check it out!

Even if you consider yourself a hardcore collector, it’s a good bet that you don’t even know about the 2007 30 (77-07) Clones And Commanders Gift Pack which was released only as an international exclusive. It was originally offered to be a Toys R Us exclusive in America, but those plans fell through the cracks. It’s one of the strangest boxed sets ever put together.

Some Walmart Stores Still Getting TBS6 [SW40] Wave 2!

While some Walmart stores are stripping all of their Star Wars figures out of the system, some are putting out The Black Series [Star Wars 40] wave 2. These were found by JTA reader Agustin in Florida. I am curious if these figures even scanned however.

40th Anniversary Titanium Figures Lowered On Amazon

It looks like the prices are dropping, albeit rather slowly. Most of them are $14 or a bit under on Amazon currently with Free One-Day Shipping for Prime members. Maybe it’s time to jump, or maybe they’ll drop more. Who Knows? Or, maybe they’ll end up out of production and worth triple the amount and we’ll be left buying from scalpers!

Hasbro produced something that collectors begged for and then those same collectors didn’t buy them. As a result, the second wave was cancelled and the entire set is hard to complete today (some of wave 2 still got out). Let’s finish up the first group by checking out the Greedo Cantina Bar Section Walmart exclusive. It also was only $9.99 but apparently too expensive for the collecting community.

So it begins…. Online retailer NJTC recently put out a quote with their newsletter which you can see below. Not to mention, all their Wave 1 figures are listed as, “ALMOST GONE! Get them while it’s still possible!” I have been watching Amazon stock flow in and out all day today, even as recently as an hour ago, but will these get filled? Hopefully these are based on the shipments they have on the way. Only time will tell, but I will tell you that if you see them, I would grab them!

Here’s a blast from the past! JTA reader Ben S. directs our attention to a 2012 exclusive that barely made a splash at retail when it was originally released. But here it is NOW on TARGET.com. This is the 104th Battalion Ultimate Gift Set. You can see our own review on these figures HERE. I remember this showing up on TARGET.com a couple of years ago for about $50, but the price has been adjusted back to its normal MSRP of $29.99. A cursory eBay search will prove to you that these sets average about $75 on the aftermarket and some of the clones in this set go for $30 each loose. If you never got this set, this might be your last chance to grab it for a decent price!

40th Anniversary Wave 2 Popping In And Out On Amazon

These have been going so very fast, so it doesn’t help for me to post in stock alerts. However, for the past few hours ALL of them have been coming in and out of stock frequently for $19.99. I got a Stormtrooper 2 hours ago and just now got Chewbacca. So I recommend keeping an eye out because these will get harder and harder to find.

IRG Solid Case Pack Visually Confirmed

There has been constant speculation about the validity of the claim that the Imperial Royal Guard was available in a solid case pack. Because as humans we need visual evidence before belief, here you go. These images were posted on Star Wars Black Series 6″ Collectors Facebook page by member Pete N. who found them at GameStop. As we have alluded to in the past, not all retailers were offered these which is why some may not know of this case’s existence.

I asked Matthew H. from Star Wars Black Series 6″ Collectors Facebook page if I could share these images here at JTA. While it’s obviously just a mistake, it’s painful nonetheless because of the rarity these things show up in stock for normal MSRP. Look what he received in place of the two figures he should have received instead. That’s got to be a punch to the gut!

We are talking “pre-return of TVC” here. We all knew that giving Walmart the exclusive TBS [P3] 3.75″ super-articulated basic figure line was probably the debacle of the ages. In fact, it may have been the worst decision for the health of the SA 3.75″ Star Wars line even beyond The Phantom Menace 3D decisions made in 2012. (more….)

There Is Another.... JTA Staff Member

You may have seen many of his great posts already. Here is his official welcome. Chuck and I are very happy (and relieved) to welcome zealously eager staff member Colin Borden to the JTA team. Colin actually grew up about 15 minutes from where I grew up in NJ so it’s great to have that close connection in addition to our mutual passions for Star Wars (which are pretty different mind you). By the way, his introduction to Star Wars figures was nearly identical to mine as well (see his story). Colin is a tad younger than the other older fogies here and brings a unique perspective on the Disney acquisition of Star Wars, i.e. he doesn’t loathe The Force Awakens like I do. So those who don’t like me (here and on Twitter) be glad Colin is here. Click through for a little background information on Colin and please give him a warm welcome in our comments.

More Details On The Drama Surrounding The Han Solo Movie

More details emerge on some of the issues surrounding the debacle known as the Han Solo film. Among the issues raised were the number of camera placement variations the directors used (3 instead of the expected 12-15 from Emperor Kennedy), Hiring an acting coach for the Lead Actor playing Han, and Lord & Miller shooting scenes as Kennedy and Kasdan requested only to film additional takes afterwards their way. Phew! Read more in this article from The Hollywood Reporter! Special Thanks to JTA Reader Martin for the heads up!

Comic Review: Annual - Poe Dameron (2017) - Issue 1

There are apparently a lot of Poe Dameron fans out there and LucasFilm and Marvel felt there was enough there to warrant his own comic series. The series may have a lot of readers, but it isn’t one of my favorites and this one-off Annual didn’t make it much better. That being said, this issue did add a bit of depth to the character we see on screen in The Force Awakens. Check out what I thought about this Annual issue and be sure to check out the other comic Research Droids Reviews. While you’re there, be sure to share your thoughts in the comments.

Ron Howard To Direct The Han Solo Film

Following the shocking news that directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller had been fired over four and a half months into production, rumors began to swirl that Oscar winner Ron Howard was the top choice to take over the directing duties on the Han Solo film. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ron Howard has officially been named as the new director of the Han Solo film. Howard will take over a contentious set, Lord and Miller were fired after clashing with Kathleen Kennedy and screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan. It’s extremely rare for a director to be fired this far into production, so a veteran director like Howard is a smart choice to finish the film under these bizarre circumstances. Head over to The Hollywood Reporter for the full story.

In case you haven’t heard, The Black Series [Star Wars 40] wave 1 is getting cancelled on collectors left and right. Hasbro has officially put this wave out of production. What we don’t know for sure is the effect on the solid case packs as our sponsors still show them available for pre-order. It looks like if you want Obi-Wan Kenobi and Luke Skywalker, getting singles might be your only bet going forward. Remember, Hasbro Toy Shop’s eBay store still has these available.

It seems that Hasbro is in a position with The Black Series 6″ line that they will be playing forever “catch up” with it. There was already such a vast cast of characters “out there” before the line even began in 2013 that trying to represent even a diverse range of everything is proving overwhelming for them. (more….)

Mark Hamill generated a lot of conversation after he stated that he fundamentally disagreed with The Last Jedi director Rian Johsnon about direction of Luke’s story. Variety caught up Hamill at the Tony Awards and he clarified his recent comments. Hamill said, “I got in trouble, because I was quoted as saying to Rian that I fundamentally disagree with everything you decided about Luke, and it was inartfully phrased. What I was, was surprised at how he saw Luke. And it took me a while to get around to his way of thinking, but once I was there it was a thrilling experience.” Check out the full video!

Clone Attack On Coruscant was one of them but this time the figures inside of it received different paint operations. See more in our Research Droids Reviews today.

An Intentional Move Away From 5POA?

It’s probably a good bet that collectors of the 3.75″ The Last Jedi line will see Hasbro double their efforts when it comes to articulation in the line. (more….)

The Modern Garage Sale

Like many of you, I remember scouring garage sales for Star Wars figures that parents were selling for .25 cents or 5 for a buck. It seems like with all the technology at your finger tips, the days of finding that gem cheap is over (or at least more difficult). Well, I had this app on my phone for quite awhile and I mostly used it to sell some old clothes and things, but recently I find out it can be a treasure trove for Star Wars collectors.

Charles Soule Discusses His New Darth Vader Series

Recently, I shared my review on the new Marvel Darth Vader comic which is written by Charles Soule. I thought it was a fantastic start to a new series that explores an area of Darth Vader we have yet to see and are eager to see; his first steps as the mechanical, maniacal apprentice of Emperor Palpatine. In a recent interview with Marvel.com, Charles shared his thoughts on the Emperor, Darth Vader, and where this comic series is going.

Target Exclusive Darth Vader In TIE Fighter Pop!

JTA reader Ken reports that Targets in AZ are starting to receive these exclusive Pops!. Each Target received only 4 so these may be scarce for awhile. They’ll probably be making their way around the rest of the US this weekend, so be on the lookout because you’ll never know what you’ll find. I stumbled across a Rey with speeder Pop! at Walmart the other day. Ken was also kind enough to provide the DCPI 323-01-0569. Good luck!

Baze And Chirrut Making An Appearance?

The Baze and Chirrut TBS 6″ figures may arguably be some of the most difficult to find. The fact that they were single packed in a case with 4 carry overs did NOT make it easy for people to find them. Heck, I STILL haven’t seen them in a store and I only have them because I got lucky on Amazon early on. Good news may be on the horizon for those still searching for these retired Guardians of the Whills. JTA reader Anthony reports that his Entertainment Earth April pre-orders are due to ship out Monday. Hopefully that means more solid cases are making the rounds. Might be time to get your orders in from EE!

Good friend and JTA reader Josh Makison has gifted me another incredible item after I drooled over the one he made for himself (as we highlighted here recently). Knowing my love for the Disney Parks 4-LOM sculpt, Josh went above and beyond and also customized a vintage Kenner Zuckuss figure for me by repainting the BAD sculpt and placing it on mock vintage Kenner card back. Hasbro – please pay close attention. You need to get this sculpt into the Hasbro line and do the same EXACT thing. It’s the most screen accurate sculpt of this character to date. We still need a TVC 4-LOM (update) and Zuckuss (first time offering) and this is the only way to do 4-LOM (vintage Zuckuss) in my opinion. Thank you!

The Hollywood Reporter has posted an article which ushers in concern for Star Wars Episode IX based on director Colin Trevorrow’s critically panned The Book of Henry. Apparently the film is so bad that the critics couldn’t stop laughing. And we know how disastrous the Jurassic World reboot film was. Should Star Wars fans be concerned about this latest installment in the series? This quote is especially disconcerting: “And the compounding coincidences he requires in order to deliver a happy ending are almost disgustingly dishonest.” Although, this is exactly what TFA brought us so it might be the perfect marriage here. No comment from this peanut gallery, but special thanks to our friends at BanthaSkull.com for alerting us to this interesting Friday story.

There are ten (10) specific things I have been obsessing about that I want to see get done when the return of The Vintage Collection comes this Spring 2018. (A lot of it has to do with the original Kenner line.) While it would be wise for all of us to not count our chickens before they hatch, TVC’s return is likely to be a scaled down version of what we encountered between 2010 through parts of 2013. However, there is no reason why Hasbro can’t make most of their existing tooling budgets, parking lots, checklists and brainstorming to help us complete modern releases of the figures we grew up with as kids. Doing this will benefit everyone involved in the Hasbro/collecting community universe. While this unofficial Top 10 list of mine is really “all over the place’ with regards to what it covers, you will notice that it hones in on one repeated topic: getting those original “Collect All 92” out/completed in this line and offers suggestions on how to do it. Please click through and be sure to leave your own two cents in our comments. We have to keep the conversations going about The Vintage Collection. It’s the most important thing Hasbro has done for us in over half a decade.

UPDATE: A New Hopeful Update For Fenn Rau?

JTA regular Mark directs our attention to an interesting turn of events on a much wanted action figure. The elusive Rogue One (Star Wars: Rebels) Fenn Rau that once showed as “This item is no longer available” has just changed its status online at Walmart to “Coming Soon”. As you know, we CANNOT get a straight answer on this figure from official sources. Can this product page update serve as any glimmer of hope, a sign or guarantee that it’s still coming? Probably not, but we still believe that this currently hard-to-find figure will see future better availability – we just don’t know when exactly.

    

UPDATE: It DID say “Coming Soon” earlier (see attached screen shot as evidence), but it’s now showing as “No Longer Available”. I guess our hope is shot down now.

When we report things that Hasbro directly say to us at conventions as tidbits of new information or confirmation, the doubt that still remains within the collecting community perplexes us. JTA reader Paul G. sends us proof of what unequivocally MUST BE multiple solid case packs of Qui-Gon Jinn. Maybe Amazon didn’t get them yet because they’re showing up at ThinkGeek stores instead.

In a discussion with CinemaBlend, Episode IX director Colin Trevorrow talked about the process of creating the next chapter in the Star Wars saga without Carrie Fisher. Although Trevorrow’s comments weren’t particularly revealing, he did admit that his options are limited because there are only certain things they are willing to do. Lucasfilm already ruled out using a CGI recreation to continue Leia’s story without Carrie Fisher, which is a wise choice. How the creative team will honor Carrie Fisher and handle Leia’s story is what I am the most anxious about heading into The Last Jedi and Episode IX. What do you think? Click through to read the full quote from Trevorrow.

Hasbro Allows The Aftermarket To Dictate Fenn Rau Values

What’s the deal with Fenn Rau? You can’t really find him cheaper than $40 on eBay. And so far in the USA he’s the sole figure in the last Rogue One wave that hasn’t been offered as a solid case pack. We have reached out to Hasbro TWICE about this figure and as of this post have received no answer regarding his status. It’s almost as if they don’t mind that you pay this much for him. My gut is that he will be carried forward into The Last Jedi line (by their non-response), but I don’t have complete confidence on that. If you click below, you will see the desperation for this figure as so many have no qualms about paying this much per figure. Special thanks to JTA reader Gman G. for alerting us to this obscene auction on eBay.

We have posted about this before, but just like many “just seen” inside jokes with close friends, this never gets old. So it’s worth looking at them time and again. Check out these terrible The Black Series (all scales) knockoff figures on eBay.

Review: Legends Of The Saga - TLC - Kmart Exclusive

Kmart’s Legends Of The Saga multipack is the worst vendor exclusive Hasbro produced for The Legacy Collection. (It’s also one of their worst exclusives of all time.)

TBS6 [P3] Wave 11 Inventory Too Good To Be True?

Well, as much as I had hoped Amazon was taking notes on their previous overselling of pre-orders, it seems we’re starting to see some of the same issues. We have been lucky to see a steady flow of stock on Amazon, but some of our readers have reported receiving delay notifications on their orders. Have you experienced something similar or is this an isolated incident? Thanks to JTA reader Agustín for the news.

TBS6 Below MSRP Almost Everywhere Now - What's Going On?

No new stock in months, which is nearly approaching years now. The same old stock continues to rot on shelves. Most retailers (if not all now) have TBS6 figures WELL BELOW the MSRP of $19.99/$21.99. What is truly going on anymore? Now another retailer desperately tries to move old stock. Have all of you seen the new sale at Toys R Us for their remaining stock of The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ figures? The sale runs through July 1st (which is quite a long time out) and the figures have been marked down to $11.99 each. There has to be more going on here across all current brick and mortar retailer than meets the eye. Is there just not a big enough audience for this line or is Hasbro making too many of them? (The solution is the same answer.)

Someone Doesn't Love Princess Leia Like Hasbro Does

JTA reader Joshua O. found this at his local Walmart. I guess this thief doesn’t love Princess Leia as much as Hasbro.

Wow, this one almost bypassed us! We don’t hang out on social media so we don’t know how many people out there are finding this, but it appears that the Darth Revan wave is making its way to Walmart. JTA reader and friend CS E. saw a bump in his local Walmart inventory of The Black Series [Phase III] figures so he went to check out what the store got. What he found was the Darth Revan wave. (The Darth Revan included was the new one though (cape tuck)). The AT-AT Driver was also the Driver and not Pilot. So this is clearly a new-old case. And they were 9.84… not bad. It looks like this wave might fall under “too much too late”. Sad. Be sure to let us know if you’re finally finding this wave at your local Walmart. This may be one of the few store reports that this wave is hitting there. I haven’t heard otherwise.

Boba Fett Themed Volkswagen Bug At Texas Car Show

If you recall, we informally polled our readers asking what currently existing 3.75″ super-articulated action figures they’d like to see re-released or added for the very first time to The Vintage Collection when it returns this Spring 2018. These figures would receive NO UPDATES or REFRESHES as they would be STRAIGHT REPACKS. (We’ll get to easy retools/kit-bashes at another time.) Now we’ve loosely compiled the results and came up with a solid list of 125 frequently requested characters. Click through for more….

This is really nothing new, but WOW! It would do Hasbro good to re-release so many figures that were part of the Comic Packs line, especially those from the red phase of the Legacy Collection. They would make lovely additions to The Vintage Collection next Spring. Check out the prices for the Ulic Qel-Droma/Exar Kun two-pack on eBay!

Is TFA The New SW [TPM 3D]?

How many of these did Hasbro make? The last time we recall asking this question was in 2012 with the Star Wars [The Phantom Menace 3D] line which was a total and utter retail debacle. However, now it seems the same is becoming true for The Force Awakens line. Who would have thunk 5POA for a new Star Wars film WASN’T the way to do things? Huh! How about that? JTA reader Mark L. also chimes in with “My Five Below in Denton TX restocked all their SW figures so that means a whole new set of $4 (down from $5) unmasked Kylo, Resistance Rey, Nien Nunb and Squad Leader FO Troopers. Where are these coming from?” We’ll probably be seeing the TFA 5POA figures for a VERY long time.

How did all of you make out pre-ordering/ordering wave 11 the last couple of days? There was a LOT of doubt from many who didn’t believe these would be avaialble in solid case packs like we confidently confirmed. But just like we advised, all figures were available in this format. I hope you all got what you wanted! This wave will hopefully get slaughtered on the aftermarket now. There have been plenty produced, so please don’t pay more than MSRP for these four figures (Qui-Gon Jinn, Imperial Royal Guard, Lando Calrissian and Tusken Raider).

My TRU May Not Have New TBS Waves, But..

At least they are carrying these super awesome 40th Anniversary plastic cups that are useful for drinking a huge cup of “Why haven’t you moved out those Hovertank Pilots” tea. My local TRU in NJ has only received the Legacy pack, die-cast (once), and these awesome cups. One can only hope they get this fixed before “Force Friday” later this year. What does your TRU store look like lately?

What Is That Place Where That One Guy Was From?

There is a magical place we all go when we we’re looking for answers. No, I don’t mean church, your dreams, not even television or the movies. The place I’m talking about is that wonderful place we call Wookiepedia. i09 recently spoke with two of the editors about how they take all the (what seems like endless) Star Wars knowledge and put it in a nice, neat package for us to search. Come and open this Holocron.

When New Technology Goes Wrong: Do You "See" It?

It look like something rather IMPORTANT is missing from JTA reader Ray M.’s latest The Black Series [Phase III] Qui-Gon Jinn (40) acquisition from ThinkGeek in Humble TX, which is just northeast of Houston. Can you guess what it is? We’ll let Hasbro slide here. This is new technology that we hope only gets better with time. What eyes you have! Or is it “what eyes do you have”?

FlashBack Reviews Column Goes On Summer Vacation

Once again, thank you for another incredible year checking out our FlashBack Reviews, a subset of our Research Droids Reviews. We’ve just celebrated our 8th year of RDRs and to date we have accumulated 15.5 million views. As a reminder, FlashBack Reviews are really just a “fancy” way for JTA to let our readers know that we’re updating our photo galleries and the review content like the Collector Notes (and so forth) on the best (and sometimes worst) Star Wars collectibles money can buy. FlashBack Reviews will be “closed” from June through August, returning on September 1st 2017 when we will focus on the incredible toys from The Vintage Collection (for obvious reasons). It’s time to get into TVC mode! So be sure to check out FlashBack Reviews again when it returns this September 1st! Please note this will have no effect on our Research Droids Reviews column. Catch our latest FlashBack Reviews HERE.

Have you been feeling that the 40th anniversary of Star Wars has been celebrated in a rather lackluster way by all those who hold the official keys to it so far? Don’t get me wrong, there have been some great memories relived and some cool commemorations, but probably nothing done so far holds a candle for what this trip down memory lane will bring you. It’s long, it’s groovy and it might make you tear up and laugh at the same time. Relive where it all begin and where it has gone in this incredible 40 year tribute to the Star Wars film franchise. It’s 95 MINUTES OF STAR WARS INSANITY!
