The Last Jedi Is 365 Days Old Today!

It’s hard to believe, but today marks the first anniversary since The Last Jedi was released in theaters. It’s a film that divided the community (much to my surprise), and while many fans loved it, many others believe it has “broken” Star Wars permanently. One thing is for sure, very few have been able to stop talking about it the last 365 days! Rumors abound that Episode IX completely ignores what was established in Episode VIII, but no one knows what is right until Episode IX is released in theaters next year. The Last Jedi has many entertaining parts, but let us know how the film has influenced your anticipation and expectations for Episode IX. Keep the comments fun and friendly, and agree to disagree before it turns unfriendly. Thank you!

Chinese factory workers producing toys for Hasbro, Disney, Lego and Mattel and are being subjected to “nightmare” working conditions in the run-up to Christmas, an investigation has alleged.

The report, titled “A Nightmare for Workers,” shows findings from campaign groups China Labor Watch, ActionAid, CiR, and Solidar Suisse, who sent undercover investigators to four factories that produced toys sold at Walmart, Costco, Target and other international retailers. (more….)


It must be exhausting making all of that 5POA crap!

Hey. If you think you got a raw deal when Kmart sent you wave 1 figures instead of wave 2, you could have been one of our multiple Facebook friends who received shampoo bottles instead. Imagine ordering the TVC Enfys Nest figure and getting the Han Solo shampoo bottle instead! Why does so much drama afflict the Star Wars line? It’s comical at this point.

If you pre-ordered the international exclusive The Black Series [Phase III] Han Solo/Princess Leia Organa set, they’re beginning to arrive from Entertainment Earth. We have a sneak peek gallery for you to check out now. Han Solo is a dramatic improvement from the one offered in the Deluxe set with Tauntau years ago. We’re not crazy about the furry collar. It looks fantastic, but it’s woven bizarrely and doesn’t stay in place. Also, it functions beautifully as a hood, but it is shaped like a ring, so there is no covering for the back of his head. So it renders it useless. The head sculpt is reused from the Han Solo (Bespin) figure, and he looks great in brown. Princess Leia Organa is a slight repaint of the Princess Leia (Hoth) basic figure. It’s a shame Hasbro didn’t include any other newness with her to make this set unique. Oh, and Han Solo wasn’t wearing this outfit in the scene they’re attempting to recreate here. Also, it’s inconsequential, but the bio on Han Solo reads very awkwardly. Like, it made us uncomfortable in spots. But whatever. Hasbro did an excellent job on this set, and it only has a few issues that won’t detract from its greatness too much. The review is coming soon, and after it, we jump into the final vintage Kenner reviews!

JTA reader and friend CJ sends us an online experience he had at Kmart. Check out the two images below because there is a LOT going on here. Firstly, these images provide evidence that CJ actually bought something Star Wars action figure related. Secondly, he was too lazy to post this at Bantha Skull, so he sent me the report instead. And thirdly, Kmart just plain sucks. Click through for his encounter.
