New loose images of The Vintage Collection Imperial TIE Fighter have surfaced on social media and we’re disappointed to report that the Imperial TIE Fighter Pilot is the same old 2008 The Legacy Collection Evolutions sculpt. Specifically, it looks like the Lieutenant Oxixio figure from 2011’s SW [SOTDS] Battle Over Endor (1 of 2) set. Check out the gallery of new images on our Facebook page! Special thanks to JTA reader Matthew C. for the news!

The community saw a spike in sales when Hasbro announced that they decided to include an exclusive carded version of Yak Face in the Barge earlier this year. But when they revealed the price of the Imperial Combat Assault Tank, many members of the Star Wars collecting community cried out in horror over the steep price. However, they quickly followed up asking “does that price include a figure?” (more….)

It's Gorgeous, But Not $119.99 Gorgeous....

You think we have it bad in the USA when it comes to The Vintage Collection’s Imperial Combat Assault Tank? Friend and JTA reader Jamie D. sends us a report that this gorgeous vehicle has hit his local Canadian Toys R Us store and the MSRP is $119.99. Yikes. The line will not thrive with these ridiculous prices. By the way, see our full review on this amazing vehicle in our RDRs HERE.

Should Hasbro Do Or Not Do Shadows Of The Empire Now?

If you were collecting the modern Star Wars toy line “back in the day,” you’ll remember the exciting storyline of Shadows Of The Empire, a series of events that took place in between The Empire Strikes Back and Return Of The Jedi. During the multimedia event, Kenner produced a line of toys in support of the story, and it went over hugely with collectors. So we ask today. Is there any interest to see these characters update in The Vintage Collection and The Black Series 6″ lines? Let us know in the comments.

Well, here we go again. Many of the latest The Vintage Collection figures are no Add-on Items at Amazon.com, listed for about half their MSRP. See the list for yourself. This is a tip to Hasbro that straight repacks should be the minority, not the majority, especially Sequel Trilogy repacks. No one wants them. NOT relegated to Add-on Item status: OT Hoth Trooper. Special thanks to JTA reader Agustin for the alert!

Hasbro has sent out San Diego Comic Con exclusives, and tonight we have a full gallery for you to enjoy of the Special Action Figure Set (Doctor Aphra Comic Set). The set is very, very nice. Here are some quick points about it. The set is overpriced by about 100%. At most, the set should cost no more than $34.99. Doctor Aphra is an all-new figure. BT-1 (Beetee) is based on the original astromech droid Build A Droid sculpt (it even has the 2008 date stamp on it) but comes with a new dome and some pretty incredible accessories. 0-0-0 (Triple Zero) looks fantastic and should have been sold as a basic figure before Doctor Aphra. It shows that Hasbro still isn’t focusing The Vintage Collection toys on the market who will buy it. The tooling on Triple Zero has worn over time, sadly. The parts don’t stay on as tightly as they should anymore. Hasbro could have easily glued them on instead, so we’re thankful that the figure still has playability. Anyway, check out our complete gallery. The review is about two-weeks out (we have a lot going on right now), but you can check out all of the important stuff now.

What Are You Expecting This Year For 2018 SDCC Reveals?

It’s hard to believe, but San Diego Comic-Con is right around the corner. Before it begins, we wanted you to weigh in on your speculation of what licensees, specifically Hasbro, will reveal this year at the show. We’ve been hinted since Toy Fair that 2019 will be a year like no other in a very long time, post the Golden Age of Collecting. But will those rumors be revealed to be true? Anyway, let us know what expectations you have for The Vintage Collection, The Black Series 6″ line, vehicles, multipacks, and stuff from other licensees in our comments.

Our “Some Like It Hoth” run of vintage Kenner reviews continues with the incredible FX-7 (Medical Droid) figure.

I have an exclusive sneak peek of wave 17 (wave 28) of The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ line! Han Solo (Bespin) is about what we all expected. He looks great, but there is nothing extraordinary about him. Samples will vary from one another, so be sure to find one with good eyes. Our sample looks good, but we think he could look a tad better. He is loaded with articulation and favors Harrison Ford very much. The Rebel Trooper is awesome, but some things about him bug us. Firstly, I don’t like the name. This character is a Rebel Fleet Trooper. Also, this sculpt is unequivocally Lieutenant Pello Scrambas, so you can’t army build this guy. (Hasbro – please make alternate head sculpts for this body!) Collectors will be thrilled to know that Hasbro added “butterfly” joints to the shoulders which make it possible for him to cross his arms and reach his arms behind his back. Also, I plead ignorance. I don’t know if he comes with the “Death Star plans” or some type of “communicator.” I am especially partial to Tobias Beckett. It looks just like Woody Harrelson, and the detail is fantastic. His costume is perfection and it’s one of the greatest figures based on Solo: A Star Wars Story Hasbro has produced to date. Check out these three new figures in our Research Droids Reviews RIGHT NOW! Full reviews are coming soon!!

Check out our sneak peek of the still-officially-unannounced The Black Series [Phase III] Captain Phasma (Quicksilver Baton) Canadian Toys R Us exclusive figure. It remains to be seen how this figure will be offered in the USA. Captain Phasma (Quicksilver Baton) would have been a lot more exciting if she was released instead of the straight repack that was part of The Last Jedi product launch push. The figure has a fantastic new head sculpt and the accessories are simple but lovely. If this were just a couple years ago, we could have expected a tweaked version of her in the basic assortment, but for one reason or another, Hasbro decides these make for great store exclusives (that many of us can never acquire). Anyway, the full review is coming soon, but you can check out the gallery and notes now.

Times Have Significantly Changed in Eight Short Years

Wow. My mind often wanders about entirely random things. That’s a given. One minute I might be googling if giraffe meat is edible for humans, and then the next moment I might Googling why herbs de Provence is the perfect spice for chicken. I could not stop my brain if I tried from going off on these tangents. I believe all of this stems from my innate curiosity about life in general. Most recently, while doing some work around the house, the fact how significantly prices have changed since The Vintage Collection’s first run in 2010, versus what’s happening with it today, rushed my mind. Then I thought of this….

What $49.99 got you in 2010

What $49.99 gets you in 2018

Need I say more?

The amount of “old” product piling up on Hasbro Toy Shop’s eBay store is astounding. And the brand new stuff is already on their page (albeit at full price). And all of the “hot products” are nowhere to be found. How many of these sitting items do you think we will packed in future case assortments too? Sigh.
