UPDATE #1: Some official images added to the comments.
UPDATE #2: I forgot to include a detail that will make some collectors very happy. TBS6 figures will come with a clear triangular stand going forward, but I don’t know which wave that begins.
A big thanks to James and JediNews for sending me this shot of the updated release and reveal chart that Hasbro has been using throughout their world tour. They mentioned in the end that the final 8 forthcoming reveals will be OT figures. Click below to check out the latest listing…

Hasbro released PRESS IMAGES for the new The Vintage Collection reveals. That has to be an all-new head sculpt for Han Solo, right? See them on our Facebook page.
HASBRO – IF YOU’RE GOING TO REPAINT/REPACK CLONES, WHERE ARE OUR CLONE TROOPER CAPTAIN AND CLONE TROOPER COMMANDER FIGURES FROM ATTACK OF THE CLONES? WE’VE BEEN WAITING SINCE 2013 FOR THOSE TO COMPLETE THE QUINTET!
Hasbro has just revealed TWO MORE The Vintage Collection figures: the 41st Elite Corps Clone Trooper (with corrected paint operations but with the same oversized bucket AGAIN) and Han Solo in Stormtrooper Disguise.
UPDATE: 41st Elite Corps Clone Trooper is an Entertainment Earth exclusive.
Hasbro sent out official PRESS IMAGES for the NYCC reveals, and we’ve added them to our Facebook page. That Yak Face name pill is a disaster.
It looks like a couple of more older TBS6 figures are getting re-released including Yoda and Biker Scout. And is that Luke Jedi over on the right? It is great to know these figures will come with better paint operations this time around! Special thanks to friend Steve U. for forwarding this image.
Hasbro reveals Star Wars: Resistance animated action figures. CNET.com has the full story.
A thanks to Disqus commenter TopMonkey for this heads up. We initially reviewed Han, Lando, and Qi’ra from Solo back in April. So far these figures have not sold through everywhere, and their Amazon values attest to their diminished popularity. So, in an attempt to reignite some interest, Hasbro sent GeekTyrant some promo figures for review. The reviewer is a collector himself, so he has some valuable thoughts regarding these figures… Full Story
Entertainment Earth has posted a tease that they will be revealing a Hasbro Star Wars item. Could it be about the Walmart exclusive Rey (Island Journey) getting converted to an EE exclusive? Ot is it something else entirely? There is so much to ponder! The announcemnt comes 8 AM PT tomorrow.
The latest HasLab update for Jabba’s Sail Barge is out. Click through to read about the latest progress update on this amazing vehicle!
JTA has recently discovered BREAKING NEWS from 2015 that never made our front page. To provide complete transparency for our readers, we’re releasing this news now. Please click through for a past update that might have changed the face of collecting for lovers of 3.75″ super-articulated Star Wars action figures (and perhaps added many new collectors into the fold too).
In case you aren’t aware, Amazon has updated the product page for The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ figure. The figure should go up for order soon.
While there have been recent glimmers of hope with The Vintage Collection, collectors on average generally feel that the return of The Vintage Collection hasn’t met expectations. The overwhelming number of Sequel Trilogy straight repacks have sullied the line to the point of affecting distribution already. And the only strong seller is an Original Trilogy character from 2010 that consistently sells out long before any newer figures from the Sequel Trilogy. We thought about the whole situation more and put together a pecking order of the types of characters Hasbro should focus on (ranking them #1 through #10) to make a solid line of action figures that would mimic the Golden Age of Collecting approach. Click through and see if you agree. Let’s do our part to help Hasbro make The Vintage Collection the most excellent line it should be.
Well this is devastating (but in all honesty NOT shocking, sadly). We’re getting MULTIPLE reports that “Bubblegate” is back in a fast and furious way. With so many wonderful store reports coming in with collectors finding wave 2 of The Vintage Collection, just as many are writing in to let us know that the figures’ bubbles are coming clean off the card backs with little effort at all. Hasbro claimed to have fixed this problem going forward. They even removed the Scotch tape after updating their heat-sealing protocols. Now the same horrific nightmare is happening once again. TVC has NO chance with all of these uphill battles. Special thanks to JTA reader vikingrobot for the report and images and so many others writing in with these very upsetting developments.
Hasbro Toy Shop has added Han Solo (Bespin Outfit) to their online store if you’re interested. Special thanks to friend Nick B. for the alert!

It’s official, the Robot Kingdom revealed Han Solo (Hoth)/Princess Leia (Hoth) set is a UK exclusive. Yahoo! News has the full story! If you’re unhappy about this release getting relegated to international exclusive status, be sure to let Hasbro know on their Hasbro Pulse Instagram page. They seem to read a lot of comments on there.
UPDATE #2: A supply will be made available at Hasbro Toy Shop.
Robot Kingdom has temporarily taken down the listing to the exclusive Han Solo (Hoth Outfit) and Princess Leia (Hoth Outfit) set (there will be a new availability date supposedly). While they confirm that any previous orders placed are secured, they are leaving it off of their site until it can be put back up for pre-order. Special thanks to JTA reader and friend CSE for the alert!
With special thanks to JTA reader Ian A., we can offer you some images from the Hasbro case at the Canadian Toronto’s Fan Expo convention. We have a carded image of Captain Phasma which features a picture of Chewbacca. We’re finally getting our Star Wars carded Chewbacca figure, aren’t we? JTA has petitioned Hasbro for this figure since we found out The Vintage Collection was returning. Enjoy the images! (Photo Credit: Ian Troake)
How is Walmart going to be the new “Toys R Us” when they can’t even get out a single Star Wars exclusive from Hasbro? Well, maybe they won’t be able to achieve this business goal. Or maybe something will drastically change with their protocols so it can become a possibility. We have learned something shocking about one of Walmart’s exclusives and received an update on another. The answer for a third exclusive is still in limbo, however. (more….)
Hasbro reveals The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ Dryden Vos and The Vintage Collection Captain Phasma (a rumor first revealed here at JTA MANY moons ago) at FANEXPO Canada and showcases them on their Hasbro Pulse Instagram page.
The eagerly anticipated TARGET exclusive Solo: A Star Wars Story 6-pack has been removed from TARGET’s website. If you recall, a placement page was created for this item and as of today it has been removed. Time will tell if it will get added back to their site. Special thanks to JTA reader indysolo007 for the alert.
