Thank the Maker! S.H. Figuarts wins the “bravery award” for tackling Ewoks in 6″ scale. Check out this scrumptious Wicket with log accessory. I need 25 of these. Keep the OT in focus, S.H. Figuarts. The other stuff is incidental. Also included here is the Jabba The Hutt S.H. Figuarts figure. It looks fun!
Multiple Chinese social networks are leaking images of incredible new Star Wars figures from S.H. Figuarts. Check out the gorgeous Luke Skywalker versus Darth Vader and Emperor in Throne Room chair. This is too much to take!

I don’t know how long these new items have been out, but JTA reader and friend Russ T. sends us images of two cool new plush sets that arrived at his local Walmart a couple of days ago. I will kill for that cantina set.

I just noticed a small issue with the HasLab exclusive Yak Face figure that is arriving in 2019. As a vintage purist, I want my modern counterparts to be as accurate as possible. Don’t get me wrong, I thoroughly appreciated the updated image on the card back for Ponda Baba (Walrus Man), but I still want that “sketch-enhanced” version too. Look carefully at the HasLab mock-up figure of Yak Face, and then look at the original Kenner figure? Do you notice something different? (It’s NOT the figure.)
Let’s check out the vintage Kenner Stormtrooper. It was a necessary figure, but was it the best Kenner could do at the time? Let’s talk about this figure in our Research Droids Reviews and be sure to add to the conversation! Reminisce your own childhood stories of this figure in our comments.

We all know that Toys R Us in the USA is liquidating their inventory, but JTA reader Jason A. sends us a disconcerting image. His local store received a literal palet of Legacy Packs from The Black Series [Star Wars 40] line. How many of these bleeping things did they make? Can we expect more stuff like this to show up? Will the solid cases of Darth Revan finally arrive? Right now these sets are marked down to $23.99, but many other retailers have already cleared these out for $10 or less per pack. Is this a testament to how small our community is, or is it more of a testament to how lousy distribution is?
It’s unbelievable we have reached the 38th anniversary of Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back! It’s revered as the greatest Star Wars film of all time, but then there are many fans who feel differently about that too. Hoth, Bespin, Dagobah – three new worlds that introduced us to a bevy of new characters. It will truly stand the test of time.
Here he is! He’s the whole purpose for the stories told in the Prequel Trilogy and Original Trilogy. And no villain-turned-hero will ever come close. In toy form, he started out as the vintage Kenner Darth Vader figure. And this figure in incapable of losing its charm. Check out this figure in our Research Droids Reviews and be sure to add to the conversation. Reminisce your own childhood stories of this figure in our comments. Share your life-changing vintage Kenner experiences with us!
I received a surprise personalized box in the mail over the weekend from Pop-Chips, a new popped potato snack which is available and will be featured at theaters for the release of Solo: A Star Wars Story. They’re pretty good! They’re like a Cheetos with a more mild flavor and thicker crunch. Click the images below to see what I received! Learn more at popchips.com! We thank Pop-Chips for sending us this delicious sample and two Black Ticket coupons for AMC theaters!
The vintage Kenner See-Threepio (C-3PO) figure is another universal favorite. And most fans love him because of his vac-metalized finish. Check out this figure in our Research Droids Reviews and be sure to add to the conversation. Reminisce your own childhood stories of this figure in our comments.

As per HasLab’s Exclusive Update #1, Hasbro added additional areas to the rails on Jabba’s Sail Barge to accept the existing cannon that came with both 2009’s LC Nikto Gunner [Nysad] (BD23) and 2013’s TBS [P1] Vizam (#17) figures, something JTA specifcially asked about at Toy Fair this year. As expected, the figures are selling out on the aftermarket so collectors can secure these accessories now. There are still a few on eBay (and Amazon), so you might want to see if you can secure one too. Some of the eBay aucions are completely untouchable, but you can find some loose sample for a great deal. It’s always possible that Hasbro can reissue either figure in The Vintage Collection, but why take the risk??
Happy 13th anniversary to Star Wars Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith! It ended a Star Wars era, and we were told it was the last Star Wars film ever. Little did any of us know the saga would return a decade later in an entirely different light. Imperfect, but fun and emotional, it showed us step by step how Anakin Skywalker became Darth Vader.
Happy 19th anniversary of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace! For many, the film has aged like fine wine. Others beg to differ. This particular May 19th it celebrates 19 years in Star Wars fandom!

eBay seller tunghori has a limited amount of Princess Leia Organa [Ceremonial] figures in stock. Special thansk to JTA reader Scott M. for the alert!
After their greatest Toy Fair Presentations in five years, I’m holding Hasbro to a higher standard to what each convention event should reveal. I jogged my memory and remembered 2011’s San Diego Comic Con was one of their many highlights from the past. (Check out the slide presentation gallery by click thing image below.) I hope that this year’s 2018 SDCC event will take the necessary strides forward to mimic the best presentations of years’ past. Great things are in store, but we want to see the signs of that proof now. So Hasbro, please make this year’s SDCC event the greatest in five years too!
