Costco Exclusive The Last Jedi Pop Sets In Stock

The Costco Exclusive Rebel 4-pack and First Order 4-pack Pops are in stock. Now, I actually assumed you NEEDED a membership to order from Costco.com, but that is apparently untrue (at least for most things). You can actually order these two sets now for the same price members pay and you also get free shipping. Just sign up for Costco.com and that’s it! Good thing too, because I had a TON of different ideas I was going to try at my local Costco.

HASCON Captain Rex Still Showing Up At HTS?

It’s been over a month since HASCON Captain Rex made his live appearance at HasbroToyShop.com, and he has made a few scattered appearances since then. However, the past few nights, at 4:25 am EST EXACTLY, he has come in stock.  It’s real, it’s not fake. He has been ordered and has been shipped. Where is this stock coming from? I don’t know, but it seems a little late for returns and cancellations. It’s just sold out again now, but I wanted to make those aware that it could very well come in stock again tomorrow morning. Good luck to those still searching!

Star Wars [The Phantom Menace 3D] Line: How Time Has Changed It

For many of us, in the last couple of years, we have found a new appreciation for Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. Many have likened the film to a bottle of fine wine, that is getting better with age. Certainly far from perfection, the issues in the film often go overlooked in favor of enjoying what is enjoyable about it. Jar Jar Binks is usually the scapegoat for the film’s critics, but even he doesn’t bother us like he used to. (more….)

We have noticed a trend and we were curious if you have been feeling the same way. After all, our interpretation is anecdotal at best. Do you have high expectations for Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi and is your anticipation for the film difficult to contain? We have noticed that the hoopla surrounding the film feels like it pales in comparison to The Force Awakens: from the toys/merchandise to the promotion of the actual film. While sequels (and even more with a Sequel Trilogy) are expected to not have the same level of hype as the first film in a series, it feels to us that there should be a little more excitement for and conversations about this film. So, tell us how you think this film is being marketed, anticipated and perceived by fans and Disney in our comments!

An Advanced Look At The New Wave Of Force Link Basic Figures

We have a sneak peek for you of the newest wave of Force Link basic figure before we begin the reviews tomorrow! Check out galleries and collector notes for these figures now. DJ (Canto Bight) is a nice figure, but it doesn’t look much like Benicio Del Toro at all. He comes with an all-new and very cool blaster that looks like something from the Old West. R2-D2 is the star of the wave for us. Hasbro resurrected the Build A Droid sculpt for this figure and we couldn’t be more elated about it. Luke Skywalker (Jedi Exile) looks much better without his hood but comes with two extra points of articulation: swivel wrists. And Rey (Island Journey) is really just a reason for Hasbro to double dip on a version of this character we already have, but this all-new sculpt does come with swivel elbows this time around. Click any of the images below to be taken to our Research Droids Reviews on this wave of figures. General Leia Organa and Jyn Erso (Jedha) will be forthcoming.

Thank You, Hasbro! You Made Our Year With R2-D2!

THANK YOU, Steve Evans! Would you believe that the new R2-D2 from the Star Wars [The Last Jedi] line is not only Force Link compatible, but that it has been made from the fan favorite Build A Droid sculpt? Hasbro resurrected this tooling (complete with foot wiring) to create a divine version of R2-D2. It’s one of the greatest R2-D2 figures we have received in the line to date! We have been begging Hasbro to bring back this sculpt into the basic figure line, and it appears they’ve listened! Stay tuned for more soon! Click the thumbnail below to check out R2-D2 in an un-assembled state!

TBS [P3] Titanium Series Helmets Found At Five Below

Well, for me, this is a disappointing store report. JTA reader Richard F. has found the Titanium Series helmets at his local Five Below store. I personally felt these were one of the nicest The Black Series [Phase III] sub-lines that Hasbro has made. Between this news and the latest helmets being relegated to store exclusives, it looks like this line doesn’t have much life left.

Some Great TBS6 Figures Grouped Together Are Telling

When I look back at the third phase of The Black Series 6″ line through the recent reveals at NYCC, there is a diverse assortment of about six figures that really stand out to me. Lando Calrissian and the Imperial Royal Guard from wave 11 are definitely two of Hasbro’s best efforts. But then when I jog my memory further back in history, I remember the excitement of waiting to acquire the First Order Stormtrooper and Captain Phasma from wave 1 and wave 2 respectively. (That was of course before I saw Episode VII.) And then what a joy it was actually attending the HASCON convention and get the exclusive Clone Captain Rex. It’s going to be so exciting to see his “photo realistic” face deco in person. And the NYCC-revealed Rey (Island Journey) was a nice surprise too. She’s a nice-looking figure that’s also coming with “photo realistic” technology. You can truly see how far they’ve come in this format. These are not fourth rate action figures. No, they ride the crest of the wave of action figure superiority as far as we’re concerned. I wouldn’t mind seeing them again before the end of the year in fact. Let us know what figures stand out for you too!

But in the midst of new Disney Star Wars Entertainment, it makes perfect sense that some previously released figures that have appeared in The Force Awakens should probably get out again for The Last Jedi.

We are quite fond of The Black Series [Phase III] Centerpiece Collection sets Hasbro has released this year on Force Friday II. They provide beautiful scenery and a great backdrop for the 6″ figures while introducing static figures a lot like the former Unleashed figures into the mix as well. With the release of Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker in this line already, we believe there are two characters are sorely missing from this line that we should probably expect to see in this format soon. Kylo Ren and Rey would make two important character releases in this format, no?

Some Walmarts Drop Prices On TBS6 Speeders AGAIN!

Only a couple weeks after their release, Walmart dropped the prices of The Black Series 6″ Centerpieces from $49.99 to $34.99 and The Black Series 6″ Rey and Luke Speeders from $59.99 down to $44.99. Now, it seems that Walmart are lowering the prices of the Speeders once again. JTA Reader DLane5871 shares a find at a local Walmart in Durham, NC. Both Rey and Luke Speeders were dropped to a mere $30! At this price, I would happily grab a couple more (I must admit, they make excellent display pieces).

If you haven’t gotten one yet, I highly recommend that you do! It is currently sold out at Gamestop.com, but you might be able to start checking stores this next week. It’s an awesome piece and that has great diorama potential with Kylo Ren (Throne Room). If you haven’t seen it yet, be sure to check out our review of Snoke and see why he’s a must have.

Costco Exclusive Funko Pop First Order And Rebel Four Packs

Funko revealed two near exclusive Pop! Four packs for Costco. The first is called “First Order Four Pack” and includes Kylo Ren with Glow In the Dark Lightsaber, Supreme Leader Snoke, First Order Executioner, and BB-9E. The second is called “Rebel Four Pack” and includes Rey with Glow in the Dark Lightsaber, Luke Skywalker, Chewbacca (with his Porg Pal), and BB-8. Each Pop! is individually packaged within the four-pack box. It’s hard to justify buying a four-pack of Pop! figures most collectors have just because of a slight change (says the guy with every FO Snowtrooper “Variant”), but where have we heard something crazy like that before?? If you’re a die-hard Pop! collector or you haven’t gotten these individually yet, you just might have to pick this up. They do look nice in that four-pack box, but I didn’t even know Costco still existed!

How Long Is The Last Jedi?

Are you patiently waiting for the new Last Jedi trailer? Well, this isn’t the trailer but AMC recently revealed some interesting information about the film. AMC has listed the run time for The Last Jedi at two hours and thirty minutes. If their listing is correct, The Last Jedi is the longest Star Wars film to date. Currently, Attack of the Clones is the longest film in the saga with a run time of two hours and twenty-two minutes.

JTA reader and friend Sebastian E. was inspired to customize an Ugnaught action figure based on our description in the Collect All 92! post we did a few days ago. Look how awesome it looks. And to think Hasbro has this tooling available right now as we speak. This would make a fine real addition to The Vintage Collection! Again, this customized figure is made up of parts from 2009’s TLC Ugnaught (BD 43) and 2009’s LC Ugnaught (BD28) figures.

According to a new product listing on Amazon, it appears that the next wave of Star Wars [The Last Jedi] figures could have a release date as late as February 2018. This is strange because we heard that this wave should be right around the corner from arriving at retail. But who knows what’s really going on with distribution such a mess.Thanks to JTA reader Bryan L. for directing us to this listing.

Review: Kylo Ren (Throne Room) - TBS6 [P3] - Walmart Exclusive

We think that the expression “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts” doesn’t really apply to The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ Kylo Ren (Throne Room) Walmart exclusive.

There Is Another.... Hasbro TVC Roundtable Discussion To Read

Our good friends at BanthaSkull.com attended a different session of the Hasbro roundtable, so different topics on The Vintage Collection were discussed. Please check out their overview of the conversation and be sure to look for a slam at someone too.

You may or may not have noticed, but Anakin Skywalker has been conspicuously left out of our last Collect All 92! article for a very specific reason. There has been controversy surrounding what version of Anakin Skywalker the 1985 figure intended to represent. Was that figure supposed to be the Force Spirit as he appeared at the end of Return Of The Jedi, or was it an Expanded Universe “off screen” take of the character “in the flesh” that we never saw onscreen? Judging by the reference image on the POTF card back, it very clear to us that the figure is intended to be the Force Spirit. Either way, 1999’s POTF2 [FB/CT] Anakin Skywalker figure doesn’t represent a good modern update to the 1985 release. That being said, IF Hasbro ever updated this figure, would you prefer the Force Spirit approach taken with 2017’s TBS [P3] Obi-Wan Kenobi (Force Spirit) figure, or would you prefer a redo of the 1999 approach instead?

Hasbro: We've Distilled The Collect All 92! Figures For You

The Hasbro roundtable discussion, in my opinion, was a fruitful event. It got me inspired once again to figure out where we are with The Vintage Collection and where we need to go from an “old school/Original Trilogy” point of view. Please be patient, we will definitely be looking at the various sections of the Star Wars timeline individually so that a clearer and more focused discussion can be had. In the meantime, we have distilled where we stand with Hasbro updating the “Collect All 92!” original vintage Kenner figures in the modern line. This isn’t meant to be interpreted that Hasbro should “only do this” but instead a “when you focus on this, this is what should be considered.” We’re not alienating any group of collectors who want other types of figures. Those articles are forthcoming. To be clear, we will be doing similar articles for Prequel Trilogy, Sequel Trilogy and Expanded Universe characters in addition to other new canon including standalone films, Rebels and The Clone Wars.

It’s time to open up a new section in the Archives! We’re adding brand new definitive Topps guides to our Visual Guide Index section to help collectors navigate the extremely complicated waters that collecting Topps cards have become in recent years. Gone are the days where you could successfully collect an entire set of cards and close the book on that set. Now, it’s virtually impossible to ever fully complete a set of Topps Star Wars cards. It’s a completist’s worst nightmare. There’s the basic set, then insert subsets, then hits, parallels, autographs, sketch cards, and more. You basically have to focus on an area within a set and make that your collecting target. That’s where we come in. We are going to break down these sets showing everything that makes up these complicated sets so you know what you are up against and what to focus on within the overall collection.

We will kick things off with the latest Topps set: Journey To Star Wars: The Last Jedi. We have the complete breakdown right here on our guide page. When available, we will also add some gallery images at the end of our page from the listed set. We will also be opening a complete set index in the near future listing the Topps sets going back to 1977 Enjoy!

What 6" Figures Would Make A Great Greatest Hits Assortment?

A while ago, we suggested that there needed to be a “greatest hits” line for The Black Series 6″ line. Figures like Anakin Skywalker and others command hefty premiums on the aftermarket. In recent Hasbro Q&As Hasbro has also admitted that it’s something they’d like to do to get those older figures out again. Because we’re seeing them tomorrow, we thought we’d compile a list based on your own wants and desires. So, in the comments, let Hasbro know what 6″ figures should be part of a “greatest hits” assortment. Remember, only previously released action figures count in this tally.

A Bit Too Soon For The Headless Horseman

I know it’s October and we’re all getting into the spirit of the Halloween season, as was this Target shopper, but this is ridiculous! We’ve posted many theft articles as of late and I think the theft issue is bound to come to a head (I know, I’m not funny!). Something needs to be done, but what?  JTA Reader MaxOfRen was pretty excited to find this new Headless Ren variant, but was disappointed that it wasn’t in mint condition due to the cutting on the bubble. Such a shame! I guess this is how you get your SA 3.75″ Episode VIII Kylo Ren if you “forgot” your wallet but remembered your box cutter.

Finally, we have an advanced look for you on the Walgreens exclusive Obi-Wan Kenobi (Force Spirit) figure. If you recall, JTA broke the news of this upcoming figure back in January. The figure is alright we suppose, but it’s nothing incredibly noteworthy. New collectors are already clamoring how amazing this figure looks, but longtime collectors have long been aware of this approach Hasbro utilized to recreate the “Force spirit” effect. It was first done with the very popular 2007 TAC Anakin Skywalker’s Spirit (30 45) figure. Obi-Wan Kenobi is based on the San Diego Comic Con exclusive Obi-Wan Kenobi figure’s sculpt but this time has been cast in translucent plastic and has been given a new sheer soft-goods purple robe. It looks good, but it’s also familiar. Check out the photo gallery now in our Research Droids Reviews.

We also have a sneak peek of the GameStop exclusive The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ Supreme Leader Snoke (Throne Room) figure. We’re unable to see any of the interest this figure has created in so many fans, but whatever. This new villain in The Last Jedi looks like a recycled Emperor Papatine more than anything to us, but the 6″ figure is well made regardless. With premium soft-goods and some awkward features (Is that his ring or is he just happy to see us? AND Is that cod piece a leftover prop from Cameo’s “Word Up” music video?) We’re not sure, but the figure does have some major Hugh Hefner like qualities. Let’s just hope this one doesn’t subjugate women too. Check out the photo gallery now in our Research Droids Reviews.

We have an early look for you with the Walmart exclusive The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ Kylo Ren (Throne Room) figure. We know, another Kylo Ren, right? The figure has merit however. A new/revised human portrait accents his scar and bruised eyes. The inclusion of a metal Kylo Ren helmet (portrait) and lightsaber hilt are strange additions, but noteworthy because of their authenticity. The figure also boasts a soft-goods cloak which fits better than we thought it would. And the inclusion of a three-part Throne Room floor is the icing on the cake. We’re not sure how this figure will perform at Walmart this season, but we hope it does well so we can get some other more interesting environmental display stands in the future. Check out the photo gallery now in our Research Droids Reviews. With special thanks to Yakface.com, you can search for this figure using the Walmart SKU of 287877571. The UPC is in the Collector Notes in our review.

We have a sneak peek for you of The Black Series [Phase III] Jaina Solo (Legends) (56) figure! Save for her facial paint operations, she’s about the most perfect 6″ figure we have ever seen Hasbro produce thus far. They’ve even added a new hinge-jointed waist to this figure for optimal movement. From the interchangeable outfits (you really get two for the price of one here) to the wealth of her many accessories, 6″ fans are going to have to search their souls if they decide to pass on this beauty. Equally Han Solo as she is General Leia, Jaina Solo (Legends) is everything you have expected from the TBS6 line. Hasbro has delivered big here. And it make us feel like she is the Rey that never was. We’ll go cry in a corner now. Check her out!

Well this is interesting! Toys R Us has updated their Forces Of Destiny section to include the Princess Leia Organa/R2-D2 two-pack as their latest exclusive. If you recall, this set was a recently revealed in Brazil at the Disney Expo there, and our own sources hinted this would be coming to Toys R Us this holiday season. It looks like that rumor has panned out. It cannot be pre-ordered yet, but they do have a December 6th availability date listed. Thanks to JTA readers Mike M. and Brian K. for the alerts!

UPDATE: It looks like other online shops have this for pre-order too. Perhaps TRU is confused about having this as their exclusive, but our sources have confirmed this too at one point. Maybe it has since changed.

Our source was able to submit his own question that this TRU salesperson would be able to ask Hasbro. His question was about case assortments for The Black Series 6″ line.

UPDATE: New SW [TLJ] Set Found In Hong Kong

I personally found the original Force Link Starter Set a bit lackluster and overpriced at launch (although I enjoy the technology itself), but the lower price point of anywhere from $21-24 made it more tolerable (especially with that $10 off coupon). The TRU Exclusive Force Link Starter Set was a bit more ‘exciting’ with the Executioner and Praetorian Guard, but JTA reader Matt sent in this new Force Link Starter Set he found in Hong Kong with Luke, Rey, Rose, and FO Stromtrooper Officer and I think this is the right direction. Of course, not EVERYONE wants a larger set of figures or wants to spend the extra cash, but I like the different tiers of Starter Sets (even more so if the coupon works for them all!). Will we see this in the US? Maybe. Have you encountered this set yet? Let us know!

UPDATE: Matt made a mistake, this does NOT include a Force Link. So it is not a Force Link Starter Set, but more of a Force Link Figure Set. Sorry for the confusion! This will be exclusive to Kohl’s in October here in the USA.
