Sellers have begun putting The Vintage Collection Imperial Combat Assault Tank on pre-order on eBay. Many have asked when this is arriving and the speculation has been “summer 2018”. Per this auction, it looks like July could be the month! Special thanks to JTA reader Gregory G. for the alert!
tunghori has restocked the Elite Praetorian Guard but it’s now $21.99 Madness! Special thanks to JTA readers Craig P. and Thomas P. for the alerts!
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??
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!
Uh-oh. Can we expect a viral Yoda Mom video next? JTA reader Driftgear alerts us to a previously unannounced role-play item: an electronic Yoda Mask with moving mouth on eBay! Orders yours today!
Hurry! We don’t know if this means that the Elite Praetorian Guard will become part of The Vintage Collection or not, or if eBay superseller tunghori has finally located his stash, but get it before it’s gone! Special thanks to JTA reader Scott M. for the alert!
As much as many of us like to criticize eBay for all of the “evil” people who sell on there, it has proven to be a great gauge for what Star Wars items go for on the aftermarket. In a very short moment of downtime, I curiously searched for three Star Wars characters (their respective action figures) across three definitive periods of collecting eras. I tried to pick characters of equal prominence but gave the Sequel Trilogy an advantage with a more popular “B” character. First I searched for the classic vintage Kenner Walrus Man (of which there are hundreds). Then I jumped to our modern era of Sequel Trilogy collecting and decided to choose Maz Kanata randomly. Once again, there are hundreds of her available as well (hundreds of each scale). Then I jumped to a random point in time during the Golden Age of Collecting and chose The Vintage Collection’s Wooof action figure. There are less than a dozen. (more….)
She sold out twice already, but The VIntage Collection Rey (Island Journey) figure is back in stock from eBay seller freemantoys. If you’re interested, you have another shot at her. You know you’ll never find this at Walmart! (Don’t take that TOO seriously, folks.)
Everything seems to be going up in price anymore, and the Disney Droid Factory collections released a couple of years ago are no exception. JTA friend and moderator Sjefke alerts us to this crazy auction, but if you search for individual parts, they go for an elevated amount too. And you thought Jabba’s Sail Barge was expensive, huh?
The Vintage Collection Walmart exclusive Rey (Island Journey) figure is BACK IN STOCK on eBay! It’s more money before but still comes with FREE shipping! Check it out! They also have The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ Stormtrooper (Mimban) and Chewbacca exclusive figures IN STOCK as well! Special thanks to Danny for the alert!
And speaking of the Gamorrean Guard, have any of you checked out the asking prices for recent live eBay auctions for The Vintage Collection figure? They’re quite accurate. You can confirm this yourself by checking out the SOLD LISTINGS in the advanced search function. It’s hard to believe that this beautiful 3.75″ super-articulated figure is going for more than The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ version! The figure was available in over a dozen case assortments throughout The Vintage Collection’s original run. The TVC Gamorrean Guard (VC21) figure has been a source of frustration for TVC collectors for years, and it appears the frustration is only going to get worse. No other figure from this line is as desired as this one is. It makes people green with envy, especially when they see collectors with more than one of them!
They also have The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ Stormtrooper (Mimban) and Chewbacca exclusive figures IN STOCK as well!
It’s remarkable how everyone who backed Jabba’s Sail Barge is preparing for its release next February by clearing out eBay. JTA reader Mike R. brought to our attention two figures in particular that have us in awe. 2004’s Star Wars “Saga” [Phase III] J’Quille and Tanus Spijek have been selling like mad on eBay recently. AT any given time you could about two dozen of them for less than $10-$15 each, maybe less. However, they’ve recently sold so strongly that it’s nearly impossible to find any active auctions for them on eBay. If you can locate them, they’re going for a pretty penny. If you recall, we created an itemized list of ROTJ characters while suggesting which one were Sail Barge-worthy, much like how Elaine determines which of her men are sponge-worthy. Well, some readers have taken notice. (You should check out those links again. The increase in prices is astounding.) Don’t wait too long to grab the figures you need to populate this first HasLab offering!
Hurry if you need The Black Series [Phase II] Galen Marek! tunghori has it! Special thanks to Gregory G. for the alert!
Wow! Have you seen the eBay auctions for the Behind The Workbench booklet? If this is any indication of what the Yak Face figure will go for, people may be able to turn a pretty penny. Special thanks to Steve U. for the alert!
Wow! Hasbro Toy Shop’s eBay store is STOCKED with a ton of new products including the latest Forces Of Destiny dolls, the latest Solo: A Star Wars Story merchandise in addition to some surprising The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ figures like the Imperial Royal Guard and Rey (Island Journey) figures! And let’s not forget about a TON OF THINGS ON CLEARANCE, as low as $1.99 EACH!) You absolutely SHOULD check out what’s in stock! You may find stuff you cannot find anywhere else!
eBay seller tunghori still have quite a few The Vintage Collection (or TVC-quality) figures IN STOCK. Don’t forget to pick up Vizam for your new Jabba’s Sail Barge (The Khetanna). Remember, Hasbro is retooling the railings on the Barge so that his AWESOME gun can be attached. There are other figures as well including the rare red-bandana Kithaba figure and Princess Leia (Slave Outfit). These are reasonably priced and as the aftermarket values for skiff guards and related figures skyrockets, get a few while you can for acceptable prices!
Princess Leia in her slave outfit/sandstorm outfit for your newly backed Jabba’s Sail Barge (The Khetanna) is BACK IN STOCK! tunghori has just re-listed The Vintage Collection’s Princess Leia (Sandstorm Outfit) which also includes the extra gear from the infamous deleted scene.

OK, so you have to buy quite a few other figures you probably DON’T want, but this is the cheapest way right now to score the Scarif Stormtrooper from the Walmart exclusive The Black Series [Phase III] 3.75″ action figure line. In this eBay lot, you get 48 total figures, 3 of which are Scarif Stormtroopers, and 45 are figures you probably already have, but each one comes to only $5.21 ($249.95 divided by 48). Very few lots remain. Let’s hope this figure gets carried forward into The Vintage Collection!
Well, this is interesting, yet oddly expected. Jabba’s Sail Barge (The Khetanna) is on eBay to help out international collectors. Check out the ad! Special thanks to JTA reader Justin V. for the alert! #backthebarge!

If you’re interested, you know where to go. If you read some of the ads carefully you’ll see that promo code discounts apply. Cases are shipping as early as a few days!
If we ever get Jabba’s Sail Barge (The Khetanna), there will undoubtedly be people who will need skiff guards to populate it. Infamous eBay seller tunghori has some tremendous Jabba-focused aliens and other related figures in stock. Choose from the rare red bandana Kithaba, Vizam, and BAR2-D2. Special thanks to JTA reader and friend Martin M. for the alert!
I have an honest question for you, so I am seeking genuine answers. For those of you on the fence with backing Jabba’s Sail Barge (The Khetanna), if Hasbro included the highly sought-after Salacious Crumb (VC66) and Mouse Droid (VC67) miniature carded figures, would that be enough to make you take the plunge? They almost never show up on eBay anymore, are HUGE holes for 95% of The Vintage Collection collectors, and go for ridiculous amounts of money on eBay. (Click either thumbnails below to see what I mean.) Let us know your thoughts in our comments. It would cost next to nothing for Hasbro to produce these and add them to this campaign as a bonus. I believe that bonus/exclusive carded figures in this campaign are what is going to push people over to deciding yes.
You may want to check Hasbro Toy Shop’s eBay store. There are some great deals to be had!

Holy cow! Could Captain Fordo (ARC Trooper Commander) be making a return in The Vintage Collection’s return, or did tunghori just find stock in his warehouse? We’re not sure, but be sure to grab this HIGHLY SOUGHT AFTER release from 2011 before he’s gone forever! Special thanks to JTA reader Craig P. for the alert! Yes, he’s worth this price loose. If you have to ask, this figure isn’t for you. 🙂
