Black Series

Well, I was informed today by my etailer of choice in Germany that they will most likely not get the US Disney Store exclusives Phasma (Quicksilver Baton) and Zuckuss. But they wished me good luck finding the figures elsewhere. Ok, ebay usually has everything and not getting the figures at all was never the problem, but ebay has ebay prices and of course you can get Zuckuss and Phasma both on ebay. And I pulled the trigger, but not without much grumbling. However, the whole bounty hunter collection would be pretty much useless without Zuckuss. The question now is, fellow collectors outside North America: were you able to find, pre-order or buy either of the figures in your country (other than on ebay, that is)? And dear Hasbro, why on earth is it so difficult sometimes to get figures to distributors or etailers outside of North America? And why can’t or won’t the various Disney Stores in Europe and elsewhere sell the figures? You had all the time in the world since TRU’s demise to figure out something? You do realize that Zuckuss is needed to complete the 6 inch bounty hunters and that collectors will be quite annoyed if they can’t get him?

German etailer Toy-Palace will offer three Star Wars exclusive sets at the “Science Fiction Treffen” (Science Fiction Meeting) in the Technikmuseum Speyer in Germany this weekend, that is today and tomorrow on Sunday. Toy-Palace will sell the Han/Leia Hoth set exclusively at the con, as well as the TVC Aphra SDCC exclusive and the SDCC Han Exogorth Set.
According to the info Toy-Palace provided the Han/Leia Hoth set will be available online in Germany in November. So anyone who doesn’t have a chance to attend the SF Meeting in the Technikmuseum Speyer today and tomorrow can try their luck then. Expect this set to sell out quickly. We will notify you once the set is available for pre-order!

This Is Why International Collectors Hate Exclusives

Dear Hasbro, a simple question for you: when will you see to it that the myriad of exclusives released for the Black Series or TVC will see proper distribution at regular MSRP in Europe and other territories, so that etailers don’t resort to importing from Asia themselves?
Why must international collectors pay a dummy tax for these exclusives again and again? Do you think a Black Series figure is worth $47? The sad thing is, this figure will most likely still sell out. General Veers who was $59 also sold out.
Dear readers, is the figure up for pre-order in your country too? What do you have to pay for Bespin Leia? Let us know in the comments!

Sneak Peek At Enfys Nest And Her Swoop Bike

I received my Enfys Nest with Swoop Bike set a short while ago (in Germany) and wanted to give you a very brief look at the set. Nothing fancy. I’m not the resident figure reviewer on JTA. Paul’s review will follow shortly, most certainly, but before he will tell you all the details you’ll ever want to know let me show two or three photos! Click through for more!

Black Series Archive Line Is Coming In 2018!

Hasbro revealed at their SDCC panel that they will introduce a new 6 inch figure line. A greatest hits line called “The Black Series Archive”. Hasbro will release 4-8 figures each year, they will select highly sought after figures for this line. All figures will come on blister cards and all human figures will be updated with the photo real technology. The first four figures, coming later in 2018, are Boba Fett, Bossk, IG-88 and X-Wing Luke with photo real paint apps!
