If you have The Black Series [Phase III] Baze Malbus and Chirrut Imwe solid case figures on pre-order, there is a pretty sure chance you’re not going to get them from where you’ve pre-ordered them. Hasbro has cancelled production on these figures and orders will not be filled. Then again, if there are efforts to get these back into production by retailers, the possibility exists that we could see them again, albeit very unlikely at this point. But if you see them now, you should probably grab them if you need ’em!

Visual Guide Update - "Guardians Of Evil" 4-Pack - TBS6 [P3]

Adam May, Star Wars Collector Extraordinaire, Has Died

It is with the utmost sorrow and sadness that I relay to you that my very good friend, JTA regular, former colleague, and wise counsel ADAM MAY has passed away. A Star Wars collector extraordinaire, Adam has passed on and become one with the Force. Adam was greatly responsible for bringing Star Wars fan site GalacticHunter.com to its peak in the mid to late 2000s and provided the Star Wars collecting community with some of the biggest and breaking rumor reports we had ever seen, up to and including breaking The Legacy Collection “Big” Millennium Falcon story in 2008. He has the distinction of being the only Star Wars collector in the world to have an official Hasbro 3.75″ super-articulated action figure made of himself when he won a TARGET sponsored contest organized by Hasbro. This contest win entitled him to a trip at Lucasfilm to get his likeness scanned for the unique Stormy Sevenspire action figure. Adam May was an incredible journalist and writer and his contributions to the Star Wars collecting community will never be forgotten. He was an inspiration to so many, and definitely to me. I developed a passion to do what I do here at JTA because of Adam and my efforts pale in comparison. Adam, I miss you already my friend. You have been an asset in my own life and a faithful friend to me. I am heartbroken. Adam is survived by his husband Todd Vierling who lives in Atlanta Georgia.

UPDATE: GameStop Cancelling TBS6 Inferno Squad Figures?

UPDATE: Our readers are letting us know that their orders are being processed for this figure, so it appears this cancellation example must have something to do with an outdated credit card on file for Ray. Thanks to all who wrote in and in the comments!

From A Certain Point Of View: Jon Hamm Is Boba Fett

I rarely ever read Star Wars novels and even I’m excited about Star Wars: From a Certain Point of View. The latest release from Del Rey will hit shelves October 3rd. The book is made up of forty short stories that reimagines a moment from the original film through the eyes of various background and supporting characters.  For example, Paul Dini wrote a story titled “Added Muscle” which focuses on Boba Fett. To make things even more enticing, Jon Hamm(!) will portray Boba Fett in the audio book version. USA Today has an exclusive excerpt from Dini’s story, check it out! You can pre-order From a Certain Point of View right here .

Melting Clone Captain Rex Packaging?

At first I thought my bizarrely packaged Clone Captain Rex was just a victim of getting crop-dusted by my good friend Chris Swanski of BanthaSkull.com fame during HASCON, but I am now seeing more occurrences of this strange phenomenon and I don’t think Chris has that much far reaching power. Have any of our readers experienced this strange, strange thing with their Clone Captain Rex figures from HASCON? It looks like we have “Meltgate” now folk if this is a common occurence!

Well that took forever. Check out an early sneak peek of the awesome “Guardians Of Evil” The Black Series [Phase III] GameStop and Barnes & Noble exclusive four-pack. In short, the Senate Guard and the Emperor’s Shadow Guard (from The Force Unleashed) are the highlights of the set. But it’s also still fun to army build the Imperial Royal Guard and get a different Elite Praetorian Guard to round out your ranks as well. The RDR is coming soon, but check out the 84 image gallery now! We hope that THIS ‘RUMOR REPORT’ makes a whole lot more sense to everyone now. 🙂

TBS 6" First Order Stromtrooper Deluxe Shipping Overseas

JTA Reader Kam wrote to us to let us know that he received his Black Series 6″ figures from his “E-tailer of choice.” Now, I am not sure where exactly he ordered from, so when we find out we’ll let you know. He received Snoke Throne Room, Guards of Evil 4-pack, and the First Order Stormtrooper Deluxe. My Gamestop exclusives are on the UPS truck as we speak, so you should be seeing yours soon as well (if you haven’t already). Have you received any of these? And if so, where did you order from?

Force Link: A Revived Kenner Concept?

Was the Force Link something that was conceived by Kenner decades ago? We’re thinking this is quite possible. JTA reader Vincent M. directs our attention to a conceptual Kenner item that never made it into production: the Electronic Sound Generator. This entry can be found at the fabulous TheSWCA.com site. Although this cool toy never made it off the ground, it appears that the technology was utilized by Galoob in some form. Click through to read more about it!

Hasbro: this isn’t an attack. We’re not even making fun of you, so this isn’t meant to pick you apart. We are actually just trying to understand your logic and game plan for the 3.75″ Force Link line. Yes, we understand that in order for Jyn Erso to be Force Link compatible that you had to put her back into production and add a chip into the figure. But why would you choose *her* when Hasbro Toy Shop’s eBay store can’t get rid of the Rogue One version at $2.69? Do you really think that the Star Wars buying market is waiting to add her into their collections…. again and at $7.99 to boot? If you could explain how a character likes this gets considered for a “repack” into the basic figure line, we would appreciate the answer. This isn’t unprecedented ad other characters have received this kind of preferential treatment too. We’re really just curious. THANK YOU!

Last Post On 40th Anniversary Wave 2 (Promise?)

If you’re a Star Wars collector, you know how this goes. You feel like you’re a yo-yo with how information is relayed and what the true status of the figures you actually want is. As you know, and some people feel we have harped on this for way too long already, is that 40th Anniversary wave 2 is and has been completely sold out since about the summertime. (In fact, it’s believed that this was the case even prior to 2017 SDCC – however, we can not wholly conclude that.) But there is great news ahead. Some of you saw our post last night before we were asked to pull it, but now we can share the details. (more….)

UPDATE: Conflict Of Case Assortments?

You saw our report on the next case assortment for The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ lineup. But there seems to be another list floating around as JTA sponsor BBTS has a different assortment listed than what Entertainment Earth and our other sponsors  and sources have. Instead of Luke Skywalker (Jedi Master), Rey (Jedi Training) and Kylo Ren the other lists substitutes these figures for Captain Poe Dameron, Finn (First Order Disguise) and General Leia Organa. We think this “differing” case assortment is worlds better. What you do you think?

Amazon Sending Out TBS6 [SW40] Artoo-Detoo Cancellation Emails

It’s raining cancellations! In what is sure to be a devastating blow to collectors waiting in anticipation for The Black Series [Star Wars 40] Artoo-Detoo (R2-D2), some of our readers are receiving the dreaded email from Amazon that their long-delayed figures are ultimately being cancelled. Hasbro also stated in the Star Wars Action News article that Artoo-Detoo (R2-D2) and Han Solo were two figures still coming, so this is definitely upsetting news.

The Dark Lord Of The Sith In The Han Solo Movie???

A recent rumor has popped up claiming that someone was seen on set wearing the famous suit during filming. There are no images of this as of now, but according to comicbookmovie.com their source is reliable. The question is, do we NEED Darth Vader in the Han Solo movie? Yes…He was used expertly in Rogue One and some may argue he had some of the best scenes, but I personally don’t think he should be stuck in every anthology film just for the sake of using him. It may water down the impact that Vader has. What are your thoughts on this rumor? Do you think we really need to see Vader in this film? In other news, Ron Howard teases us with a possible Kessel Run. Check out more of that info here at CBR.com

Stop Allowing The Hate To Flow Through You

An unfortunate turn of events that our friends at Yakface.com have experienced should have been the golden opportunity to make us all reflect on what’s important and bind us all together in solidarity, but in many ways it has disgustingly become an attack on other competitor sites instead (as evidenced by some of their readers in the comments). I am not going to be long-winded, but the absolute LIES, DECEPTIONS, FALSE NARRATIVES and outright DISGUST being posted by some of you on social media and in comments is SHAMEFUL and much of it is libelous. It’s sad that your hatred for other sites, including JTA, has made you go down rabbit holes and take attention off of what Yakface.com was trying to relay to you, and especially when most of it is false and stretched. I welcome any of you to come here and discuss your issues with us or any other site on their/our own turf. We’re certainly not going to add to the mayhem outside of what gets posted here. Don’t be such cowards. This isn’t about JTA or any other site. Let go of your hate for a moment and lift up and encourage Yakface.com, for they do great things for the collecting community.

UPDATE: A Major Announcement Arriving Tomorrow Morning?

PLEASE SEE UPDATE! Jedi Temple Archives has just learned that things are in motion right now as we speak that will materialize as a “major” Star Wars related announcement Tuesday morning. We don’t know what it’s about or in what capacity it relates to Star Wars, but it is supposedly HUGE news. Apologies in advance if whatever this is doesn’t materialize, but we were encouraged to take note that something big is coming. We will be sure to link to it if/when it goes live.

UPDATE: We have learned that the announcement has nothing to do with being directly related to Star Wars. But it does have to do with being indirectly related to Star Wars collecting. Stay tuned for the announcement tomorrow.

Would Wookiee Weekend Work While Withstanding Wisecracks?

So far we’ve had Force Friday in 2015. Rogue Friday in 2016. And Force Friday II in 2017. For 2018, what would be a good product line launch name for Han Solo: A Star Wars Story? Unlike our headline, we’re “thinking” that Wookiee Weekend would be a nice use of alliteration, no?

Do TBS6 Collectors Want Cantina/Jabba's Palace Characters?

Hasbro would be the first to admit this, but they have really been in an urgent state of “playing catch-up” ever since the inception of The Black Series 6″ line. It’s really no one’s fault at Hasbro. When you start a line from the beginning, you’re already “x” years behind to anything else that has already been produced. It must be quite an undertaking trying to organize a vast cast of characters which make sense for this line that contains so many characters while including new Star Wars Entertainment. Trying to please everyone in this scale is proving to be quite overwhelming in some regards. (more….)

Toys R Us Enters Death Spiral Before 2017 Holiday Season

Ugh. You saw our earlier report on Toys R Us on the front page recently, and how they were considering filing for bankruptcy, but creditors already see them in a death spiral as their debt load seems almost incurable from their viewpoint). According to some sources, Toys ‘R’ Us could file for bankruptcy as soon as next week, and they note that “nervous suppliers have scaled back shipments and tightened terms to the retailer ahead of the crucial holiday selling season, on worries they may not got repaid and their payables would be lumped alongside other unsecured pre-petition claims.” While it’s always sad to anyone lose their job, it also makes us wonder if this will impact the availability of their exclusives that were announced for Force Friday II. We wish them the best. Check out the new update at ZeroHedge.com.

Are Star Wars Figure Thefts At An All-Time High?

This is really starting to grate on me. As someone who has been collecting the modern Star Wars line since 1995 (and the vintage line for years before that), I have to admit that I have never seen more instances of figure thefts and figure swapping than I have from 2015 onward. It’s ALWAYS been an issue, but the frequency is very depressing now. Clearly, the new Star Wars films have brought a ton of new collectors, but it seems to have also brought a facet of the unscrupulous which are really cramping the style of this hobby and ruining for other peer collectors AND THE KIDS. But it doesn’t just end here. The attitude I see is just as disconcerting. I belong to quite a few TBS Facebook groups and the frequent entitlement I see (by multiple collectors – certainly not all) that this is funny to “stick it to the man” and “Hasbro can afford this” just flabbergasts me. I guess it’s just a sign of the times. Anyway, please take this article as “don’t do this because it’s morally wrong” and please encourage others to not do this either. The image on the left is mine and the image on the right is courtesy of JTA reader Jeremy W.

So, Where Are Those 40th Anniversary Wave 2 Figures?

You saw our friendly warning here months ago about about the 40th Anniversary The Black Series 6″ wave 2 figures; that they were completely sold out. Various interviews with Hasbro at SDCC this years allowed some to believe that they were shipping at that time, but we were cautious to not be eager about this news. But as you know, no units arrived at retail and many people’s pre-orders weren’t fulfilled and remain open or have been canceled. Now Hasbro answers Star Wars Action News’ question (from their HASCON interview) that they’ve all been shipped. Now, there could be some in transit somewhere, but it looks like these figures are finally all gone. We believe they’ve always been gone for months now (and actually have sources that confirmed this). If you need them, check eBay quickly because there is an even stronger chance now with this new confirmation that you’ll never see them again… unless Hasbro orders a new batch to be produced. As you can see from the listings, some figures go for obscene amounts.

Sneak Peek! TBS6 Clone Captain Rex - HASCON Exclusive!

We just got back from New England so of course the first thing we do is generate a sneak peek gallery of the HASCON exclusive Clone Captain Rex The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ figure. Simply stated, it’s a great release. Hasbro did a fine job on replicating this character in realistic style and including functional parts while providing collectors with a fantastic likeness. Older parts have been reused for Clone Captain Rex, but he has also been given plenty of new parts too. The paint job is fantastic and the deco is evenly placed and nicely applied. The accessories are generous and sized appropriately. The review is coming soon, but you can check out our 40-image gallery and basic Collector Notes now. Enjoy!

Trevorrow Is Out: Could Rian Johnson Or J.J. Abrams Take Over?

Colin Trevorrow’s dismissal from Star Wars: Episode IX  has left Lucasfilm and Kathleen Kennedy searching for a replacement, and it looks like they may turn to a familiar face. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Rian Johnson and J.J. Abrams are the top choices to replace Trevorrow. Furthermore, their sources indicate that continued issues with the script led to the Trevorrow’s dismissal. At the moment, Rian Johnson seems like the most likely candidate. Johnson is a well respected writer and may be better suited to finish the script. The word is that Johnson was a perfect fit for The Last Jedi and had a seamless working relationship with Lucasfilm.  It makes sense that Lucasfilm would want to work with him again. What do you think about the possibility of Rian Johnson or J.J. Abrams returning to direct Episode IX? Let us Know!

It's Going To Be a Major Porgblem For Collectors

So far there are three things that are sticking in my craw when it comes to porgs. 1. The pun of porg with “porn” (yuck). 2. The mispronunciation of “porg” with “prog” (duh),  3. And last but not least theft of these little porg accessories with the Star Wars [The Last Jedi] Chewbacca figure (this makes me so mad). We all knew this was inevitable. Hasbro, get ahead of this mess and produce “porg packs” or something. Thank you. Special thanks to friend Rum Sleg for the report and image.

Back in January we “teased” an exclusive rumor that focused around a wave of Walmart exclusive The Black Series [Phase III] 3.75″ figures. The lineup ended up changing a bit, although we’re now inclined to believe the female X-wing pilot from Episode VII was confused for Rose. Snoke was bumped out of many initial assortments for reasons still unknown, but we imagine he is still planned for The Vintage Collection. And of course we didn’t know what the “new” Royal Guards were going to look like until the new production images leaked. Now thanks to another source of ours we’re able to provide you with a first look at this final wave of The Black Series [Phase III] 3.75″ figures (which are technically Walmart exclusives at this very moment) but should be available everywhere online soon! Slated with a November street date, you can check out these four super-articulated 3.75″ action figure RIGHT NOW!

As soon as the news broke that Yoda and Obi-Wan Kenobi were part of the Star Wars [The Last Jedi] line, most collectors wanted to know how they differed from past versions. We just found the new Star Wars [The Last Jedi] Obi-Wan Kenobi at Walmart this morning, much to our shock and surprise. The figure has a beautiful sculpt and its deco is interesting. Hasbro utilized the “dot matrix” application to add streaks and highlights to his hair. The robe shell is removable and his arms are attached via ball-socket articulation, certainly a strange approach for an action figure in the Star Wars line. He comes with his signature lightsaber as well. There are rumors that he is to make some sort of an appearance in Episode VIII, so this action figure seems to help add more fuel to that fire. Check out our rough early RDR page by clicking the image below.

Well, we just discovered that Hasbro has tooled the best 3.75″ Boba Fett action figure of all time. It’s one half of the new Han Solo/Boba Fett Two-Packs set. Sadly, it only comes with five points of articulation. Regardless, it has the greatest head sculpt we have ever seen for this character and possesses a silhouette that perfectly matches the onscreen character. Hasbro, if you’re reading, please convert this figures to super-articulated status so that we can finally have our definitive 3.75″ Boba Fett action figure (and without a removable helmet). It would be the perfect candidate for The Vintage Collection’s return.

Posted in Visual Guide Updates

As soon as the news broke that Yoda and Obi-Wan Kenobi were part of the Star Wars [The Last Jedi] line, most collectors wanted to know how they differed from past versions. With thanks to Hasbro and Litzky PR for providing us this sample, we’re able to give you some details. The review will be coming in the near future, but here are the nuts and bolts: Yoda comes with eight points of articulation. The shoulders are ball-jointed, the head is a reverse ball-socket joint and his ankles come with standard ball-socket articulation. He also comes with a swivel waist. What he doesn’t come with are two separately moving legs. There are no hip joints and his lower body is one chunk of plastic. His likeness is excellent. His coloring is OK. And his accessories are based on his appearance from Star Wars Episode II: Attack Of The Clones. There are rumors that he is to make an appearance in Episode VIII, so this action figure seems to help add more fuel to that fire. Check out our rough early RDR page by clicking the image below.

SDCC Already Arriving From HasbroToyShop.com

Somehow, someway, my orders from HasbroToyShop.com always come the very next day even though I choose the cheapest, standard shipping. Obviously, it’s due to my proximity to them in Jonestown, PA, but I was also impressed with how well they actually packed them this time around. I typically NEVER get any packing materials in my shipments, but this time they came nicely packed. Be on the look out for yours soon!
