Latest TBS6 Wave Found At Target!

The latest wave of The Black Series [Phase III} 6″ figures have been found at a Target in Minnetonka,MN. JTA Reader Adam K. found Snoke, Jaina, and Rose all at his local Target. It might be time to start taking a look if you need these!

As of this post, many of the figures that were part of The Black Series [Phase III] 3.75″ super-articulated Ponda Baba wave are pennies on the dollar. Some are low as $5.97. If you’re still missing them, now is the chance to grab Tusken Raider, Ponda Baba, Boba Fett (Prototype Armor) and Sandtrooper. Special thanks to friend Steve U. for the alert!

Well, this is interesting. I had received some correspondence from our friends at Star Wars Figuren earlier this morning noting that there are different variations to how Luke’s face was painted on the TARGET exclusive “Ahch-To Island” version hitting now.  Then my friend Rich Alot, who is on business in Tokyo Japan, found this same exclusive there and those Luke figures had just a slight pink hue to their faces. Now, friend Mario M. sends me an image of a Luke that appears to have no zombie quality at all (where the red/pink deco is completely gone). Click the image below for more.

Rey (Jedi Training) on Crait Packaging Variant

JTA Reader MaxOfRen shared with me a packaging variant he noticed last night when picking up another Rey on Crait TRU Exclusive. As you can see from the images below, the left one has a raised, glossy text while the right one is flat and matte. Both of these Rey’s have the same date codes stamped on them as well, so that is even more perplexing, but now the variant hunters can begin the search. Which one do you have?

New Walmart Shipper Making The Rounds!

JTA Reader MaxOfRen shares with us a new Walmart shipper he discovered today at a Walmart in Birmingham, AL. As you can see, it is stocked with the latest wave of 6″ Black Series, 3.75″ Force Link figures (including Obi-Wan and Yoda), and the latest 12″ figures (including Poe Dameron and Yoda). It will be nice to see these hit stores in some larger quantity. I personally haven’t seen the Maz wave in any stores near me yet.

JTA reader and friend Danny R. has ALSO found the TARGET exclusive Luke Skywalker (Jedi Master) (Ahch-To Island) 6″ figure and we asked him to take some images inside of the packaging. Luke also appears to have a zombie-like quality to his facial paint operations. Also, accessories are less than other figures in this line. Click each image for additional details.

Could Rose Be One Of The Saving Graces In The Last Jedi?

From the day I saw the Resistance Gunner Paige and Resistance Tech Rose on store shelves September 1st, I stated immediately how intrigued I was by their characters and that I hoped right from the start that their characters would become a meaningful addition to The Last Jedi. The Last Jedi MUST DELIVER! This is evidenced by how I feel about The Force Awakens. In my opinion, Star Wars needs a jolt of Force lightning in the storytelling and I hope it gets rejuvenated into hyperdrive with Episode VIII. Just recently, director Rian Johnson hosted a Twitter Q&A. One of the questions asked focused on what character he is most interested in and he made it clear that Rose  is a character he adores. I can’t tell you how excited I am by Rian’s response. Click through to check it out. Do you think Rian is right? Are we in store for something good with Rose? Lord knows she’s got to be better than Rey!

Why does it look more interesting than Hasbro’s Rogue One Rapid Fire Imperial AT-ACT? And it’s only $25. And you get popcorn! Mario also let me know that the legs and neck have articulation and the side guns move as well. It also comes with a lanyard so it can be carried over the shoulder.

I have seen some strange eBay auctions in my past, but this one stands out. Is anybody in the mood for empty boxes of already unboxed Hasbro The Black Series 6″ figures? Special thanks to Paul B. for the alert. (By the way as an aside, doesn’t the word “unboxing” just make you want to hurt someone?)

The Toy Run Podcast Facebook page has started a pretty interesting discussion about how collectors view LEGO versus Hasbro. The discussion is so good that I think it warrants bringing this out of social media and to the Star Wars fan site community where it belongs. Here are the thoughts and questions paraphrased:

LEGO collectors went crazy for the UCS Millennium Falcon. It sold out within a day or two and no one balked at the price. Likewise, there aren’t too many complaints about its size or the space it takes up. The only complaints seem to be that it’s sold out and there are still people who want to purchase it.

Then you take the Hasbro Star Wars action figure crowd of collectors. Hasbro finally gives us a HUGE FO Special Forces TIE Fighter for $169 in The Black Series 6″ line and it pretty much bombs at retail. It didn’t even sell out 2 years later (!) at $50 online this past Black Friday.

Why is a Lego collector willing to pay $800+ (and is happy about it) while a Hasbro Star Wars action figure collector doesn’t want to spend $170 for a big vehicle? It’s perplexing.

In our comments, please leave your own thoughts about this.

Found! "Return Of The Jedi" 3-Pack In Philly Area

I meant to post this on Tuesday evening, but I ran out of time because of holiday travels. My local TARGET, much to shock and surprise, had the “Return Of The Jedi” three-pack out of the shelf. As you know, we’re crazy in love with this set and are hoping Hasbro will translate all of the figures inside of it to super-articulated glory. You can check out our review of this set HERE if you haven’t checked it out yet also.

Despite showing up at TARGET for $49.99. Despite showing up at multiple discount outlets for pennies on the dollar. Despite showing up on Hasbro Toy Shop’s eBay store. Despite multiple Amazon deal of the days for this item. Despite Walmart’s and Toys R Us’ online stores dumping it for a fraction of its original MSRP. Despite ALL OF THIS, there is STILL stock of the successful The Black Series [Phase III] First Order Special Forces TIE Fighter. Now ROSS is receiving them (along with a ton other The Force Awakens and Rogue One merchandise) for $69.99. I don’t think there is anywhere else this vehicle can go. Bring back super-articulation in a hardcore fashion, and see this overstock become a fraction of what it currently is.

Early Bird "Empty Box" Promotion: 40 Christmases Ago This Year!

Yahoo! has republished their popular article on the vintage Kenner Star Wars Early Bird Kit (which originally ran December 2015). Because this December marks the official 40th Christmas anniversary of Kenner’s groundbreaking Early Bird Kit “empty box” promotion, Yahoo! has wisely decided to rerun the article and update it to include The Black Series 6″ Legacy Pack which was inspired off of this original collectible as well as other “insider” updates. We should also note, although not mentioned in the article, that Hasbro paid homage to this concept back in 2005 for 3.75″ scaled action figures for The Saga Collection. You can check out both the Early Bird Certificate Package and the Early Bird Figures sets in our Research Droids Reviews. In the meantime, check out the revised article from Yahoo! News.

New Star Wars Monopoly Sets In France Contain Rey Token

JTA reader from France, Patrice, sends us evidence that, for lack of of a better description, the “inclusive edition” of Monopoly has reached his homeland. This edition includes Rey and the packaging has been given a “call out” sticker to notify potential buyers of Rey’s inclusion here. This is an interesting turn of events since Hasbro declared recently (this past summer) that an edition including Rey would not be produced.

Hasbro has produced one of the greatest 3.75″ three-packs the line has ever seen with this release. Love them or hate them, the 5POA figures included in this set represent some of the best/finest likenesses of three core Original Trilogy characters. Most of the figures in this set come with more than 5POA. The figures are NOT perfect, but the approaches made with them show that Hasbro is committed to creating products that are as faithful as possible to their onscreen counterparts. Emperor Palpatine is the best Episode VI version of the character ever. Luke Skywalker could not be more reminiscent of the 1983 figure. And, while as simple as it could be done, the Emperor’s Royal Guard is exactly what we need for  an “at attention” iteration of them. Start praying now that Hasbro takes the digital files, at the very least, of the Emperor Palpatine figure and develop a glorious The Vintage Collection version. We all have waited WAY too long for that figure. Also, be sure to come back and check out the review on Black Friday where I have a couple of cool snippets of trivia that you may or may not know about these figures. Click any image below to be taken to the early draft of the RDR.

Hot Toys 1:6 Scale Praetorian Guard Pre-Orders

No, we didn’t forget about Star Wars Rebels. It’s been a while since the last Rebels Reviews, and you can thank flu season and an overstuffed non-JTA schedule for the delay. To make up for that, we’re going to have a Rebels Review marathon. Let’s begin with the doubleheader of “The Occupation” and “Flight of the Defender.” Click the banner below to read the full review!

Toys R Us is acting Craitzy with their exclusive Rey (Jedi Training) figure. The action taken have been a little Crait-Crait.

Star Wars: Battlefront 2 Scraps In-Game Purchasing

It seems that anything online (and in a social type of setting) is harmful to your mental health anymore. Forbes posted a fantastic recent article outlining six ways that social media is affecting the mental health of those who constantly utilize it, and with really no surprise, EA is in the middle of a controversy that there new Star Wars game was really just gambling masked in Star Wars which is all social media based. We’re beginning to believe that people should probably step away from these social media outlets and related things. What we have all personally witnessed online and they affects they’ve clearly had on people are frightening. And now it’s starting to affect younger minds. It’s time to get the kids (as well as the rest of us) outside and in the fresh air again. Anyway, check out the article on EA at CNBC.com. It’s another frightening example of what can happen in the social media/gaming arena. Remember how hard it was to give up Candy Crush? It seems things are headed in the right direction for EA, but it’s scary to think what might have been.

I’m not exactly sure where they got it from yet, but a seller on in New York had a case of the latest wave of The Black Series 6″ that included Luke (Jedi Master), Rey (Jedi Training), Jaina Solo, Resistance Tech Rose, and Supreme Leader Snoke on Mercari. He sold them for a reasonable $23 price tag also. They could be popping up anytime now for pre-order, so keep an eye out! Another seller in Wisconsin also had the newest Funko Movie Moments, so that’s another item to keep an eye out for.

Sneak Peek! Star Wars [The Last Jedi] Two-Packs Wave 2

We have a sneak peek for you tonight of the latest wave of Two-Packs sets. Interestingly, one of them this time is a three-pack. The Rose (First Order Disguise)/BB-8/BB-9E set is about as average as they come. The new sculpt of Rose is nice, but the deco is not great. The BB units are all-new sculpts as well, and they look about average. But their Force Link sound effects are divine. You can tell them apart too. BB-8 is more high-pitched, and BB-9E is mostly lower tones. It’s like they communicate by farting. It’s great. (The Disney Parks versions are infinitely better. We’ve added comparison pictures for you to see for yourselves.) The Chirrut Imwe/Baze Malbus is a pure joy if you’re a fan of the film. Chirrut finally gets his bowcaster rifle and says one-half of his immortal line from the film. Hasbro goofed by not completing it with Force Link. (We’re quite disappointed by this.) Baze Malbus is more of the same, but it’s cool to have him talk this time. Anyway, click the thumbnails below to check out the Photo Gallery and Collector Notes for each review now. Full reviews start tomorrow!

Don't You Just Love Destroyed Star Wars Collectibles Packaging?

“But they don’t get paid enough to care!” I recently was out shopping on an extremely rare toy run to pick up the newly released Rey (Jedi Training) (Crait) figure for our RDRs. (I don’t collect these things and going on toy runs has been pointless since 2013 in my area.) A couple of different stores had them in stock, but most of them looked like what is shown in the image below. Can’t Toys R Us employees show a little more tender loving care when it comes to our Star Wars collectibles? Accidents are always possible, but this was just careless rushing getting stock onto the shelves. We have also seen reports of this same thing across the country from our Facebook readers too.

Well, Rey (Jedi Training) (Crait) is a bit of a conundrum. The figure looks about as perfect as it can without the “photo realistic” technology and is certainly a step up from the basic release. But we’re thinking that the soft-goods might be working against this figure somewhat. The environmental pieces are awesome, but they don’t connect that well and don’t lay flatly against a flat surface when assembled. The metal accessories are a nice touch, but are collectors going to care? Also, we’re not sure if Rey’s “zombie” colored skin is intentional, or if she sustains some bruising in this film. Of particular note, she has a cut on her right arm. Does she get violent with Luke Skywalker in Episode VIII? Hmm. Check out our Photo Gallery and Collector Notes now. The review is hitting tomorrow!

Toys R Us apparently send out e-mails today to let us know that they will be giving out Free The Last Jedi posters with any Star Wars purchase. I did not receive one of those e-mails, so thankfully JTA reader and friend Charlie sent it my way. They are also having a $10 off of $50 Star Wars purchase sale going on as well. Below you can see the two posters I was able to get from my local TRU. One featuring Crait and the Ski Speeders and one featuring the Hangar explosion and they’re both 18″ x 24″.

More TRU Exclusive Black Series Rey Sightings

I was driving past my local TRU this morning in East Brunswick, NJ when I got a text from a friend about a TRU product which prompted me to veer off into the TRU parking lot and have a peek.

Another Gamestop Blunder For The Books

JTA Reader Alexander F. sends us in this report of his latest purchase from Gamestop.com. He originally ordered two Artoo-Detoo 40th Anniversary Black Series figures, but when they showed up, he got a big surprise. He opened the large box to find two Supreme Leader Snoke (throne) instead of the Artoo’s. The receipt even says Artoo 40th Anniversary. This seems to happen more than it should. Have any of you had a similar mistake happen? Let us know in the comments below!

Rogue One Fenn Rau Variation Confirmed

JTA reader and friend Derek T. reached out to me on Facebook to present me with evidence that a rare but existing variation of the Rogue One Fenn Rau exists. First samples that showed up on eBay with date stamp 63561 do not have the black line filled in on the figure’s belt buckle. The version from the CMD case packs (in Canada) as well as the Entertainment Earth figures (date stamps 70441 and 72421 respectively) both have the black paint detail added to his belt buckle. An already difficult figure to secure may have one of the most difficult variations to lock down as well.

Is this how the 40th anniversary celebration dies? With thunderous lackluster products? It’s hard to believe we’re already beyond the first week in November and that we’re just moments from reaching the holiday season once again. What’s more difficult to believe than this is what we received in the form of Star Wars merchandise to celebrate the monumental and once in a lifetime celebration of the 40th anniversary of Star Wars.

Another Case Assortment Bites The Dust

Our friends at Fantha Tracks know a retailer who received the latest case assortment of the Star Wars [The Last Jedi] Two-Packs line. Do you see a problem here? Too much repetition of old and very little new makes retailer pegs a dull option for customers. Baze and Chirrut obviously have new Force Link technology, but they’re old figures. There is technically only one major new figure in this entire case pack (if you don’t count the revised BB-9E figure: Rose in disguise. Consider us concerned about wave 3 every making it to store pegs.

First Look! Disney Star Wars Toybox Figures

Check out early Photo Galleries and Collector Notes for the first wave of Disney Store’s Star Wars Toybox Figures. These are pretty nice and loaded with The Vintage Collection quality articulation. If Disney started making realistically styled action figures with this high level of quality, we think Hasbro would be in big trouble. They’re in between the 3.75″ scale and the 6″ scale which creates another whole problem for collectors on the fence about starting a new line. Click through to check out these three figures. We think you’re going to love them too.

IMAX International Posters Revealed

Take a look at the IMAX International Posters. They’re the same as that IMAX display that we’ve seen, but I have a feeling that these will also be the posters we see given out at movie theaters for The Last Jedi just like they did for Rogue One and The Force Awakens. These look particularly awesome side by side. You can see Finn and Phasma about to go at each other and the lightsaber blades come together at the center. A bit of Light and Dark meeting in the middle? Or I just like looking into things too much lol, what do you think?
