More The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ figures have arrived at Five Below locations across the country. New figures include C-3PO (Resistance Base) and Scarif Stormtrooper Squad Leader. We have “heard” that more of these case assortments will be arriving this week, so be sure to check out your local store. On a related note, we just joked about Star Wars [The Last Jedi] unsold product landing at Five Below in about two years. But they’ve arrived now. You can get $29.99 vehicles for $5 if you’re so inclined.

This eBay auction is too great for words. Just check it out for yourself. Too bad it wasn’t listed on Halloween. You have to give him an “A” for creativity. Thanks to all who alerted me to it.

This Isn't A Bargain - It's Brand Devastation

This isn’t necessarily anecdotal. And it’s undoubtedly not hyperbolic. I’ve never seen the Star Wars brand perform this poorly in my 20+ years collecting. Out of curiosity, I wanted to check my local Ollie’s store to see what kind of Star Wars merchandise they acquired from the Toys R Us buyout. And while I found a crapload of stuff, I also found product TARGET gave up on too. Not even the Five Below TVC purge was this voluminous in unwanted Star Wars products. (Half of us never saw those TVC figures until they hot Five Below because it was a terrible distribution issue.) This sale product may sell at Ollie’s at reduced prices, but if it didn’t move at Toys R Us as they were liquidating everything, why would it sell for higher prices at Ollie’s? What a mess.

Ollie's Finally Advertising $200M Toys R Us Liquidation Stock!

Although reported right before the summertime, Ollie’s discount stores are now receiving Toys R Us’ liquidated products. If you have a store near you, it might be worth checking out their stock. Apparently, they’ve acquired $200 million of Toys R Us’ stock, which is pretty astounding. Special thanks to JTA reader Monteleone for the image.

Hey Hasbro! An actor from Return Of The Jedi emailed us and let us know you’re not making enough aliens from Jabba’s palace. The neglect stems from the lack of merchandise and you can be a big part in fixing that. Can you change that for them (and of course us?) (more….)

In Australia that is! Complete with Walmart stickers! Australia doesn’t even have Walmarts (yet)! How sad is it that the exclusive The Vintage Collection Stormtrooper (Mimban) figure for American Walmarts (that should have arrived months ago) is hitting in considerable numbers in Australia first? I mean, we’re happy for our fellow collectors in the land of “down under” but this is ridiculous. Special thanks to JTA reader General Solo for the image and report.

If you saw the arresting and spectacular final “Rick Grimes” episode of The Walking Dead last night, you were officially introduced to actress Cailey Fleming (although she did appear in a couple of “flashback” episodes earlier in the series). Interestingly, Cailey played “young Rey” in The Force Awakens flashback scene and is now promoted to series regular in The Walking Dead as Judith Grimes as the series time jumps six years ahead. The Walking Dead has resurrected itself to its glory years, and last night’s episode proved that. Too bad stupid Chris won’t care.

Images and news reports are floating around on social media that Hasbro’s inaugural wave of the reintroduced The Vintage Collection figures are now found at discount outlets like Bargain Hunt (and others). Hasbro, it’s time to move away from the Sequel Trilogy repacks. When we said “slap it on a vintage card back” we meant great figures from your The Legacy Collection, Legacy Collection, and The Black Series [Phase I and Phase II] lines, updated with photoreal technology. You know; the characters from before Disney Star Wars. Disney Star Wars characters are essential, but you should treat them in The Vintage Collection like how you’re handling the Original and Prequel Trilogy characters. You have it backward!

UPDATE: Per one of our readers, Bargain Hunt is supposedly getting their stock from TARGET stores. Man, that’s a powerful statement if it’s true.
