Rey Of Jakku & BB-8

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.

More TFA Five Below Finds

JTA reader and friend Michael O. alerts us to another Five Below find. I haven’t heard these particular figures hitting this retail collection, but I may have just forgotten. Regardless, this was the first time Michael has ever seen this figures at retail! Sad!

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!

Coming Soon To Jedi Temple Archives!

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? With characters like Chewbacca making an unforgettable and entertaining appearance in the series, it seems probable that Hasbro would add these types of characters into the line as well wouldn’t you say?

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.)

Kroger Posts "Temporarily Unavailable" Tags On TLJ Pegs

JTA reader and friend Robert F. sends us something interesting while out looking for The Last Jedi toys. Kroger has actually added notes to their TLJ pegs that now say “Temporarily Unavailable.” It looks like things are in place to help assist against the breaching! You might also be interested to see their price on these. Gadzooks!

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.

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). We missed them completely. For a company adamant on keeping secrecy in effect, you’d think something like this wouldn’t slip through the cracks until Force Friday II.

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.
