Marcia Lucas Talks Star Wars In A Rare Interview

Marcia Lucas, who won an Oscar for editing the first Star Wars, has rarely talked about her experience working on the film or her relationship with her ex-husband George Lucas. Many have pointed out her importance during the early days of the saga and that her contributions remain underappreciated. Athena Studios interviewed Marcia, along with Emmy-winning editor Duwayne Dunham, at the 40th Anniversary ILM reunion in May. In the interview she talks about Star Wars, George, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and more. Click through to watch the full interview!

Another Rumor Report Confirmed Not Far From The Mark

Wow. Always go with first instinct right? We should have known our sources wouldn’t have failed us!

YouTuber Claims LEGO Is Threatening Legal Action

When will Disney concede defeat with The Last Jedi product launch? When will they accept that the way they’re doing things doesn’t work? They’re truly stealing the joy away from new toys. Licensees have clearly been prompted to take action. Check out this YouTube video which the author claims LEGO is going after him now. We are unable to verify the validity of his claim, but it seems like quite a performance if there isn’t some smoke and fire here. Either way, we are TWO DAYS away. What’s the point of all of this nonsense?

"Pulled From YouTube" The Last Jedi Commercials Air On TV

More to file under: You can’t make this stuff up. Despite efforts by Hasbro/Disney to pull The Last Jedi commercials from YouTube (as well as the many other places on the web they ended up), JTA reader Jason M. watched one of the same exact commercials in the comfort of his own home on the Cartoon Network. We’re NOT kidding. (The videos are still off of YouTube as of this post.) I wonder if the PR firms involved are still scrambling to try and get all of the replicated commercials pulled while they’re airing live on television as we speak. Pure insanity!

The Last Jedi Theatrical Teaser Poster #2 Arriving From DMR

If you ordered the second theatrical teaser from Disney Movie Rewards and haven’t received it yet, then be on the lookout. These are arriving now. I received mine today, and in great condition (DMR doesn’t have the best reputation with shipping posters). The latest teaser poster (Luke/Kylo) is no longer listed on DMR, but you can still get the first teaser. They look great hanging side-by-side in my den! I’m looking forward to the final poster to add to the collection! The Debbie Downers out there give these a hard time, but they look quite striking hanging together.

EA's Star Wars: Rise To Power Mobile Strategy Game

Earlier this month, StarWars.com announced an upcoming mobile strategy game from Lucasfilm and EA . It’s still extremely early and very few details have been made available. Personally, I really enjoyed the MMORPG Star Wars: Uprising and the accompanying canon story line that followed ROTJ, but this will be a much different game. I have just received my pre-Alpha invitation so I will be providing more details about it soon enough so stay tuned!

Mark Hamill Gets Political

Mark Hamill has decided to use his celebrity to make a political statement. Sad! Real Clear Life has the story. We pay to watch you act, not to glean your political perspectives. This goes for both ends (as well as all the shades of gray within) the political spectrum. Although his comments surely imply a sarcastic nature, it’s never good to mix the two in my opinion.

Wipes, Wipes, And More Wipes! Or....Not

As we all know, wipe transitions are almost as synonymous with Star Wars as Luke Skywalker or Darth Vader, but when The Force Awakens was released it may have been a little light on the famous transitions (not that it would’ve changed the quality of the film..yes, I kept that ambiguous lol). However, we now have found out that The Last Jedi may be following suit. More on this after the jump!

TBS6 [SW40] Wave 2 Pushed Out AGAIN: This Time 6 More Months

Entertainment Earth once again pushes out their anticipated arrival date of The Black Series [Star Wars 40] wave 2 figures. But this time you’ll have to wait SIX more months until February 2018. Wow, will anyone accept these are just sold out by now? Good news still exists however. With the proof that foreign orders (Europe/UK) will be fulfilled because of extra production, it’s probable Hasbro will do the same for its American collector base which is probably why these orders have been pushed out once again. But that’s just a guess. Whatever the case, we hope you’re all able to secure this great wave of figures at some point.

We Have One More Week To Get Through This Madness!

We once again thank you for all of the store reports of The Last Jedi Force Friday II products finds and successful purchases. This has far exceeded any anecdotal evidence at this point. The store reports are fast and furious and so many of you already seem to already own what you wanted for Force Friday II. We concede with your opinions in your emails to us that it doesn’t seem right or fair that social media can get away with the revealing while a fan site like our own that has freely advertised the Hasbro Star Wars line for a decade and a half are essentially warned not to follow suit. Then again, with Disney’s involvement in Star Wars, should we really be surprised with this backwards treatment? We’re almost there. Hang tight. Anyway, be sure to check out JTA on Force Friday II!

Pre-Order Marvel Darth Maul Paperback From Target

Those who prefer to wait for the trades can now pre-order the entire Marvel Darth Maul mini-series from Target.com. It’s marked down to $11.59 and I believe that it is definitely worth it a read.

Not at all, so don’t even try to make the comparisons. I am warning you. It’s NOTHING like Episode V. Check out the article, but then again, don’t if you don’t want a trip back to the future…. or spoilers. Special thank to JTA reader and friend Tom C. for alerting us to this article.

More Forces Of Destiny Episodes On The Way!

Forces Of Destiny is slated to return with new episodes this October. The writer of the animated series, Jennifer Murro, recently sat down with The Hollywood Reporter to discuss some info on the series and what we can expect from the new episodes. Many sources are calling this season 2, however, I believe it is still season 1 similar to how they took breaks from Rebels. Read the THR interview with Jennifer Murro here!

JTA reader and friend Damian V. sends us images from his local Walmart that they’ve not only placed new TLJ merchandise in the clearance aisle, but have also reduced them to clearance prices. Let the madness continue. Disney: are you keeping tally yet?

A Clarification To An Earlier Post: TBS6 On Force Friday II

I just wanted to clarify our earlier post because I feel it didn’t clearly layout what area of retail collectors may experience some difficulty finding these figures. So, to be clear, please accept this clarification. Our earlier article on the possibility that wave 2 might not be found everywhere on Force Friday II, found HERE, is written from a “brick and mortar” perspective. It should be much less of an issue to find this “other” wave online. I just wanted to be clear on this point. So, if you’re going out on Force Friday II, have your devices handy. You never know if you might need them. Good luck to everyone!

Han Solo Film Loses A Cast Member

Michael Kenneth Williams (The Wire) was among the most exciting cast members to join the still untitled Han Solo film.  Unfortunately, the actor revealed in an interview with Deadline that his role has been cut from the film. Williams told Deadline, “When Ron Howard got hired to finish out the film, there were some reshoot issues that needed to be done in regards to my character, in order for it to match the new direction which the producers wanted Ron to carry the film in.” Williams is currently filming The Red Sea Diving Resort in South Africa and was unavailable for the reshoots. Instead of pushing back the Han Solo film to accommodate his schedule, Williams’ role was cut altogether. His character was described as “half-human, half-animal.” Head over to Deadline to read the full interview!

As you probably already know very well by now, there should be two waves of The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ figures available on Force Friday II. Jedi Temple Archives has learned that a possibility exists that the second of the two waves may not show up on September 1st, but arrive shortly thereafter. Just be of the mindset that if you don’t see that second wave on day one, it’s availability is imminent.

JTA reader German O. is visiting his friend in NJ and they found this at his friend’s local Walmart store. Because of a toxic mix including the inability to understand what a street date is in today’s day and age, Disney’s obnoxiously obscene territorial control over their licensees, and utter confusion about what is actually new in Star Wars, this particular Walmart has placed new The Last Jedi vehicles in the clearance aisle and marked them down to $19 (their normal MSRP is $39.99). It is unclear however if German was able to purchase it and walk out of the store with it, even at a clearance price. Doubtful. They probably told them they were recalled because of lead paint… by the store manager no less. I don’t know, I am just assuming that’s what happened.

I was able to find at least 12 Toys R Us in my area that had them in stock and I was able to go pick one up from my local store an hour ago. It was nice to not have to pay that shipping or have to fiddle with sticking random things into my cart for the free shipping. Take a peek and see if he is available near you for in store pick up.

UPDATE: Jedi Temple Archives Reader Survey

The response to the Jedi Temple Archives Reader Survey has significantly exceeded our expectations. There’s an incredible amount of great feedback we received from everyone and we will be sharing the results shortly. We are simply overwhelmed with how many of you took the time to add the free form comments. There is a great to deal to digest (which we’re extremely thankful for – that’s not a complaint).

We had only set up this survey to accommodate 3% of our daily visits (what our traditional participation experiences have been in the past). But we are nearly quadrupling that participation percentage unexpectedly already. The long story short is that there are only about 100 spots left to take this survey and provide your feedback. The survey is probably going to end before the planned August 31st date. We feel strongly that we have a tremendously fair sampling of opinions already, but it you want to leave your own personal responses, please act now. Thank you to EVERYONE who has already participated. We look forward to doing what we can to make Jedi Temple Archives better for everyone.

UPDATE TO THE UPDATE: THE SURVEY IS NOW CLOSED! THANK YOU FOR YOUR PARTICIPATION!

EA has released a new trailer that features gameplay from the Starfighter Assault game mode in Battlefront II. The gameplay shown in the trailer spans every era and revealed new locations including Ryloth.

After some fantastic The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ reveals at San Diego Comic Con this year, fans of the line are dying to know what’s next from Hasbro. JTA has “accidentally” come across some invaluable information that collectors should probably prepare themselves for with regards to the 6″ line. Rose (from The Last Jedi), 4-LOM and Dengar (bounty hunters from The Empire Strikes Back) and Han Solo (in his famous Bespin outfit) are likely candidates for the line. As you heard in our SDCC interview with Hasbro, they already have a list in mind of what characters would be part of a 40th anniversary lineup of Episode V if they “were” to do that. Three more Episode V figures only makes that dream more likely, right? As with any rumor that is unofficial, take this scoop with a grain of salt until confirmed by Hasbro. Stay tuned for more “rumors” coming soon!

Is it our destiny that Hasbro will branch out beyond female characters in the Forces Of Destiny line?

What Could Be Done Better When It Comes To Product Leaks?

We know and feel the frustration of not being able to post all of The Last Jedi leaks. We’d like to hear your opinions on how Disney could handle this whole mess better. Perhaps they could sell the exclusive reveals to companies like Entertainment Weekly and io9 sometime around August 1st and then ship the products after the exclusive stories are published. Stuff is going to get out. Disney must conceded this. After all, this is the third time we’re experiencing this. It’s like wash, rinse, repeat. Anyway, do you have a better suggestion? Remember, don’t blame Hasbro. This is all on Disney. (Sure, Hasbro could lighten up on the free press they get from Star Wars fan sites once the stuff is leaked, but if you have any constructive ideas, please leave them in our comments.)

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.

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).

Force Friday II Is Only Two Weeks Away - We Have To Wait....

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.

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?

Quick Request For Hasbro - Bob Hudsol

Hasbro, please consider Bob Hudsol for The Vintage Collection so you can make CJ a happier person. I believe it’s one of a half dozen figures he’ll buy from you. This way he’ll also become less likely to troll JTA (but that’s clearly for our own selfish reasons). Thank you. Now onto bigger and better things.

Following hot on the heels of the sold-out Star Wars 40th Anniversary coin, New Zealand Mint has produced another unique, rectangular poster coin. This time they celebrate Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, the second instalment in the original trilogy which was released in May 1980. Recall the battle scene between the Rebels and gigantic Imperial Snow-walkers on the planet Hoth, the frenetic chase scene through the asteroid field where the Millennium Falcon escapes TIE fighters while darting between giant tumbling boulders, the levitation of Luke’s X-wing fighter by Yoda, and the climactic lightsaber battle between Luke and Vader!

As you know, longtime collectors of the modern line are in desperate need for a modern update to the puppet version of Sy Snootles from Return Of The Jedi. But now that The Vintage Collection’s back, why not give us updates to the whole band in glorious Kenner inspired packaging now? Perhaps redo Max Rebo so that he better resembles how the creature really is thanks to Pablo Hildalgo, (stubby lower body). We think that since Hasbro is thinking more outside of the box that this might make for a great 2018 store exclusive somewhere, so can you please make it happen?

An Example Of How The Last Jedi Line Is Getting Abused

We all can admit product leaks are exciting. Before the dark times these product leaks and “rumors” were the lifeblood of Star Wars fan sites. Now that Disney is controlling everything with pitchfork in tow, these leaks have become an unpardonable sin. While fan sites are banned from drawing attention to these leaks (thanks to intimidation tactics), unscrupulous sellers, Reddit, Instagram and everywhere else continue to “get away” with it. This bothers us of course, but perhaps not more than eBay sellers taking advantage of all of the hysteria. Just look at this auction and let us know if it doesn’t. Yes, these sellers, once the street date is here, have every right to sell these products for whatever they want, but shouldn’t Disney be focusing on this aspect of the leaks since it’s much more devastating to their brands?

We heard a rumor! You know there is a Finn in The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ line for Force Friday II (or shortly thereafter) right? You should probably expect a version of Finn in some First Order disguise and not in the common/standard outfit with open jacket. We’ve also learned that Poe Dameron should be in some captain’s gear too. But we should all wait to be sure when Force Friday II arrives!

Is He Or Isn't He In The Last Jedi?

There’s an awful lot of Yoda merchandise showing up in The Last Jedi line look packaging isn’t there? Between this latest store find and the rumor report of ours which alluded that you should be seeing Yoda and Obi-Wan Kenobi merchandise in the toy line (as well as Yakface.com breached action figure assortments), it seems more and more that somehow, somewhere Yoda will make a cameo in some way. Then again, he may not at all. It should be interesting to see what happens, huh? Special thanks to Crime Sweeper for this store report.

We’re continuing to keep the conversation going! If you listened to the Hasbro Q&A (which was a team effort between JTA and Victoria’s Cantina – check it out HERE), you clearly remember Hasbro saying something that was as loud as clashing cymbals. It was also very heartwarming to fans of The Vintage Collection. When asked about working aliens/patrons from A New Hope (Chalmun’s Cantina) and Return Of The Jedi (Jabba’s Palace/skiff guards) into the planning of TVC they said “Absolutely, that’s kind of one of the main reasons we brought [The Vintage Collection] back. It is.”. (more….)

Is Disney Considering An All Star Wars Streaming Service?

Earlier this week, Disney announced plans to launch their own streaming service in 2019. The new service would include existing content and original programming, following the Netflix model. Disney has opted to end it’s existing distribution deal with Netflix. Beginning with their 2019 releases such as Toy Story 4, Disney’s proposed streaming service will be home to all upcoming Disney movies. While this deal will include Disney’s live action and animated films and upcoming Pixar releases, the company’s Star Wars and Marvel films were not mentioned.  According and to a report from TechCrunch, Disney CEO Bob Iger said they are still considering how to integrate Marvel and Lucasfilm titles and that they may launch their own standalone streaming services. What do you think about the possibility of an all Star Wars streaming service? Would you pay for a one stop shop for Star Wars content? Let us know!

So, what’s the deal with The Black Series [Star Wars 40] wave 2? You heard Hasbro say wave 1 is basically done, but wave 2 is on the way now (from our SDCC Q&A). Much of this is 100% accurate, then again, we said the same thing as well also. What you may want to be reminded about is that for wave 1 solid case packs for Han Solo and Artoo-Detoo (R2-D2) are still coming, so this first set of figures is not truly “done” from that perspective. But most collectors are much more concerned with wave 2, and rightfully so. (more….)

Remember this rumor report? (Click HERE to see it.) We didn’t know what the Praetorian Guards looked like back in January, but now we do.) Yakface.com confirms this rumor report and others that JTA broke with an update to what expect for The Black Series 3.75″ line.They also confirm another very old rumor report of ours where we told you there would be one final TBS [P3] 3.75″ wave of figures THAT WOULD BE general release items and not exclusive to Walmart. Also, there have been lineup changes as alluded to recently. It appears the Rogue One female pilot might be saved for The Vintage Collection, and it appears most Snoke products have been pulled for secrecy reasons and won’t be available on Force Friday (a total guess/assumption). You should remain confident that Snoke is still in development for all scales.

This deal is getting worse all the time. This is a broken man. One who would have preferred to stay lost. And he feels the same way about that lightsaber. “The fact that Luke says, ‘I only know one truth. It’s time for the Jedi to end…’ I mean, that’s a pretty amazing statement for someone who was the symbol of hope and optimism in the original films,” Mark Hamill tells EW. Your comments please.

Could The Last Jedi Be The Last Hurrah For Collectors?

Gosh. I will be upfront with you all and say that my interest in Episode VIII and The Last Jedi toy line (as well as the TLJ and TFA focused figures from The Black Series [Phase III] line) is about a microcosm of what the average Disney Star Wars zealot feels about the new films and how Star Wars is the “best it’s ever been.” I have been hoping for the best, because I need a new starting point for the Sequel Trilogy since I ripped The Force Awakens out of my own personal Star Wars timeline. However, I am getting a little nervous. (more….)

Walmart Slashing Prices On The Legacy Pack

JTA reader Allen found a ton of 40th Anniversary Legacy Packs marked down at his local Walmart in Smithfield, RI. According to Allen, they are marked down to a mere $15! I know my local Walmarts have more than 20 of these each and they have yet to even mark them down at all. My Walmarts don’t have ANY of the Star Wars figures marked down yet…Which is strange. Have you found the Legacy Pack this cheap yet in your area? Let us know!

The madness continues. As more and more online sellers breach their agreements with Hasbro with early sales of The Last Jedi basic figures, the bidding wars and starting bids are entertaining at best. Check out this auction on eBay.

Hasbro agreed with us when we said that The Vintage Collection needs to be a conversation. They’ve since taken this quip of ours and used it in their SDCC presentation. Therefore, we’re going to keep that conversation indeed going. How should Hasbro approach 2018’s The Vintage Collection card backs? (more….)

Additional Proof The TBS6 [SW40] Line Is DONE

Still don’t believe The Black Series [Star Wars 40] 6″ line is out of production? We were waiting for the first store report to come in as we knew this was imminent from one of our sources. These 6″ figures are now being found on clearance at Walmart so they can prep for Force Friday II. Aside from some solid case packs via online, you can all stick a fork in this line. Special thanks to JTA reader Ben H. for sending us the first store report of this.

JTA Canadian reader Jamie D. sends us a remarkable store report. Do you remember the Amazon exclusive First Order Legion boxed set with seven figures? They have now shown up at Toys R Us in Canada for only $29.99 (original MSRP on Amazon was $47.99). As you know, these nearly go for $100 on Amazon today, so this is quite a surprising store find. Let us know if you see these in your local stores. I wonder why Amazon didn’t sell through their stock because once they sold out they never replenished and collectors wanted these. And I also wonder if American collectors will see this at their TRU stores. Weird. On a related note, I wonder if this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to unsold TFA toys….

How Many Howards Does It Take To Finish A Han Solo Movie?

Two apparently! As we’ve all expected since the announcement of Ron Howard coming in to finish the still untitled Han Solo film, he has supposedly found a role for his brother Clint according to his Twitter comment. That shouldn’t be too hard in a Star Wars film considering he isn’t the most conventional look actor as he himself poked fun at in The Waterboy.  You can read more about this on Variety.

What Is This, "Prae" Tell?

Collectors of an enlarged scale of action figures are probably going to start seeing red. Literally. Imagine a matrix of myopic proportions making its way to your collection exclusively. The question is, will you be able to tell them apart?

Hollywood Reporter: Episode IX Gets A New Writer

The Hollywood Reporter has published an exclusive story that goes on to explain that British writer Jack Thorne will retool the treatment/script that was written by Trevorrow and his writing partner. According to the article sources say “a fresh pair of eyes was needed”. Uh-oh. Better get Maaco! Check it out and let us know your thoughts. Fake news? Or a shovel of truth to the face?

Step Right Up And Get Your Star Wars CLEARANCE Here

Once again, you couldn’t make this stuff up if you tried. JTA Facebook friend Michael B. sends us a shot of an upcoming TARGET reset. Do you see anything out of balance here? Is the unsold Star Wars toy volume so high that TARGET needs to devote this much retail real estate to sale merchandise? TVC fans: you’re going to have to step up to the plate next year and affirm to retail that we mean business.

After yesterday I needed a small “pick-me-up” to distract me and make me laugh. JTA reader and friend Steve U. sent me the perfect thing to cheer me up. In my entire time collecting the modern Hasbro line, I have NEVER once seen a Star Wars toy get marked almost 99% off. On a lighter note, at least it was successful for Hasbro. I can’t wait for the next one! Seriously, you have to wonder if this thing was Better off Dead. While Kmart doesn’t have any in stock, you have to wonder if this is some sort of political statement from them. 🙂
