Hasbro

In case you haven’t heard, The Black Series [Star Wars 40] wave 1 is getting cancelled on collectors left and right. Hasbro has officially put this wave out of production. What we don’t know for sure is the effect on the solid case packs as our sponsors still show them available for pre-order. It looks like if you want Obi-Wan Kenobi and Luke Skywalker, getting singles might be your only bet going forward. Remember, Hasbro Toy Shop’s eBay store still has these available. (It’s unbelievable has disorganized this collection has been.)

Hasbro recently launched a new subscription service called “Hasbro Gaming Crate” and ships a themed crate of three games to the subscribers house every three months. I don’t know about you, but how great would it be if you didn’t have to struggle to find every figure and they just showed up at your door step? Click through to read on.

It seems that Hasbro is in a position with The Black Series 6″ line that they will be playing forever “catch up” with it. There was already such a vast cast of characters “out there” before the line even began in 2013 that trying to represent even a diverse range of everything is proving overwhelming for them. (more….)

An Intentional Move Away From 5POA?

It’s probably a good bet that collectors of the 3.75″ The Last Jedi line will see Hasbro double their efforts when it comes to articulation in the line. (more….)

Steve Evans, Design Director for Hasbro Star Wars, has revealed on Star Wars Black Series 6″ Collectors Facebook page that the 6″ Jawa’s eyes glow! (Too bad they glow green, Steve! Just kidding!) Cool Easter egg!

UPDATE: JTA reader Zach L. actually pointed out this detail in our Jawa RDR 21 days ago!

Retailer Robot Kingdom has updated their site product page for the Inferno Squadron TIE Pilot which shows a new January 1, 2018 release date (instead of the November 2017 date shown on GamesStop’s product page. (Anything can change of course.) It’s more than likely that this just means “sometime in first quarter 2018” and there is something much bigger coming then anyhow.

Darth Maul: This Time I Know It's For Real

For any concerned readers out there, the Darth Maul figures available on Amazon from Toy Vendor UK are 100% legitimate TBS [P1] Darth Maul figures. I received mine over the weekend and I can guarantee these aren’t bootleg figures. I had to get one to be sure. Plus, the stickers were simple to remove. They only have six (6) left as of this post if you’re interested.

You want to see how her new legs look? We alerted you to Amazon updating their product page for the long-awaited and highly anticipated The Black Series [Phase III] Hera Syndulla (42) figure back in May. Now they’ve added new images of the revised figure to that product page. Check it out!

There are ten (10) specific things I have been obsessing about that I want to see get done when the return of The Vintage Collection comes this Spring 2018. (A lot of it has to do with the original Kenner line.) While it would be wise for all of us to not count our chickens before they hatch, TVC’s return is likely to be a scaled down version of what we encountered between 2010 through parts of 2013. However, there is no reason why Hasbro can’t make most of their existing tooling budgets, parking lots, checklists and brainstorming to help us complete modern releases of the figures we grew up with as kids. Doing this will benefit everyone involved in the Hasbro/collecting community universe. While this unofficial Top 10 list of mine is really “all over the place’ with regards to what it covers, you will notice that it hones in on one repeated topic: getting those original “Collect All 92” out/completed in this line and offers suggestions on how to do it. Please click through and be sure to leave your own two cents in our comments. We have to keep the conversations going about The Vintage Collection. It’s the most important thing Hasbro has done for us in over half a decade.

UPDATE: A New Hopeful Update For Fenn Rau?

JTA regular Mark directs our attention to an interesting turn of events on a much wanted action figure. The elusive Rogue One (Star Wars: Rebels) Fenn Rau that once showed as “This item is no longer available” has just changed its status online at Walmart to “Coming Soon”. As you know, we CANNOT get a straight answer on this figure from official sources. Can this product page update serve as any glimmer of hope, a sign or guarantee that it’s still coming? Probably not, but we still believe that this currently hard-to-find figure will see future better availability – we just don’t know when exactly.

    

UPDATE: It DID say “Coming Soon” earlier (see attached screen shot as evidence), but it’s now showing as “No Longer Available”. I guess our hope is shot down now.

If you recall, we informally polled our readers asking what currently existing 3.75″ super-articulated action figures they’d like to see re-released or added for the very first time to The Vintage Collection when it returns this Spring 2018. These figures would receive NO UPDATES or REFRESHES as they would be STRAIGHT REPACKS. (We’ll get to easy retools/kit-bashes at another time.) Now we’ve loosely compiled the results and came up with a solid list of 125 frequently requested characters. Click through for more….

This is really nothing new, but WOW! It would do Hasbro good to re-release so many figures that were part of the Comic Packs line, especially those from the red phase of the Legacy Collection. They would make lovely additions to The Vintage Collection next Spring. Check out the prices for the Ulic Qel-Droma/Exar Kun two-pack on eBay!

How did all of you make out pre-ordering/ordering wave 11 the last couple of days? There was a LOT of doubt from many who didn’t believe these would be avaialble in solid case packs like we confidently confirmed. But just like we advised, all figures were available in this format. I hope you all got what you wanted! This wave will hopefully get slaughtered on the aftermarket now. There have been plenty produced, so please don’t pay more than MSRP for these four figures (Qui-Gon Jinn, Imperial Royal Guard, Lando Calrissian and Tusken Raider).

When New Technology Goes Wrong: Do You "See" It?

It look like something rather IMPORTANT is missing from JTA reader Ray M.’s latest The Black Series [Phase III] Qui-Gon Jinn (40) acquisition from ThinkGeek in Humble TX, which is just northeast of Houston. Can you guess what it is? We’ll let Hasbro slide here. This is new technology that we hope only gets better with time. What eyes you have! Or is it “what eyes do you have”?

Real Or Not Real, That Is The Question!

I have seen my fair share of Darth Maul bootlegs (as I’m sure you all have), but this seller’s seems to be legit. The real question is: Is it or isn’t it? Find out after the jump.

Some folks who pre-ordered the TBS 40th Anniversary figures from Amazon back in February are still getting delayed shipping notices, this time with no estimated delivery date. I’d recommend keeping those orders while you still hunt for them else ware. Hopefully, they will eventually fill them all! Thanks for the alert Donald!
