Star Wars Collectible News, Photos, and Reviews

Store Reports

More The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ figures have arrived at Five Below locations across the country. New figures include C-3PO (Resistance Base) and Scarif Stormtrooper Squad Leader. We have “heard” that more of these case assortments will be arriving this week, so be sure to check out your local store. On a related note, we just joked about Star Wars [The Last Jedi] unsold product landing at Five Below in about two years. But they’ve arrived now. You can get $29.99 vehicles for $5 if you’re so inclined.

It’s older news, but Tuesday Morning stores are still getting in the final wave of the Walmart exclusive The Black Series [Phase III] 3.75″ action figures. These stores are also receiving other Star Wars items too. Special thanks to JTA reader and friend Martin M. for the alert!

This Isn't A Bargain - It's Brand Devastation

This isn’t necessarily anecdotal. And it’s undoubtedly not hyperbolic. I’ve never seen the Star Wars brand perform this poorly in my 20+ years collecting. Out of curiosity, I wanted to check my local Ollie’s store to see what kind of Star Wars merchandise they acquired from the Toys R Us buyout. And while I found a crapload of stuff, I also found product TARGET gave up on too. Not even the Five Below TVC purge was this voluminous in unwanted Star Wars products. (Half of us never saw those TVC figures until they hot Five Below because it was a terrible distribution issue.) This sale product may sell at Ollie’s at reduced prices, but if it didn’t move at Toys R Us as they were liquidating everything, why would it sell for higher prices at Ollie’s? What a mess.

In Australia that is! Complete with Walmart stickers! Australia doesn’t even have Walmarts (yet)! How sad is it that the exclusive The Vintage Collection Stormtrooper (Mimban) figure for American Walmarts (that should have arrived months ago) is hitting in considerable numbers in Australia first? I mean, we’re happy for our fellow collectors in the land of “down under” but this is ridiculous. Special thanks to JTA reader General Solo for the image and report.

Multiple TARGET Stores Restock Gamorrean Guards And Molochs

JTA reader and friend Russ T. sends us a report that his local TARGET restocked both Moloch and Gamorrean Guard The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ figures. I can confirm that my local stores were restocked today too. It looks like there are finally enough of those pigs out there now.

Let's Move Away From 5POA Because This Is Not OK!

A discount store by the name of Roses is getting in hordes of unsold Rogue One products. Most notably, the basic figures are $1.99 each. You can click THIS LINK and see if there is a store near you. JTA reader and friend Josh M. sends us an image of the proof. What’s disconcerting about this is that Rogue One and The Last Jedi products are arriving at so many discount retailers. It’s almost if there isn’t a big enough audience to support 5POA Star Wars action figures. Please Hasbro, move away from 5POA and focus on getting all of the characters in super-articulated status. Thank you.

You have to wonder if The Last Jedi was such a “masterpiece” as some claim it is why the merchandising of it is in the toilet. (That’s not a dig at the film. I didn’t hate it as YouTube does.) While I think both extreme unbridled praise as well as volatile criticism of the film are a tad ridiculous, I can’t deny how poorly the merchandising performed (and in all honesty, this is where the real money comes into play). How many of us actually found the final wave of 3.75″ The Black Series [Phase III] exclusives? I have seen more reports of no one finding them than finding them. And if we did see retailer exclusives, how many of them clogged up shelf space until discounted and eventually removed? JTA reader Scot G. found some key “The Last Jedi” exclusives at his local Tuesday Morning store along with other unsellable stuff. Hopefully, the next film will be a marketing juggernaut.

Is Retail Actually Improving For Star Wars?

JTA reader and friend Danny R. sends in an image to us reflecting the new life breathed into Walmart stores as of late. While I cannot say my store looks anywhere as stocked as his store does, I can say that I have witnessed signs of life that are both comforting and therapeutic. Philly was “Hasbrotopia” during the Golden Age of Collecting. For the last five years, it has become a barren wasteland. But I was one of the fortunate ones who found wave 3 of The Vintage Collection arrive (before I received my supply from my Asian sources) and General Veers has just begun to hit my local Walgreens. Before this, I didn’t find ONE Walgreens Star Wars exclusive, and there is a store on every corner out here. Plus, I expect to see the 6″ Mimban Stormtrooper hit shortly as well. Oh, and in typical fashion, TARGET has pretty much held it together well without issue, although their mainline stock is mostly dreadful. In short, I do see improvements. Do you?

TBS6 [P3] Stormtrooper Mimban Found In Virginia Walmart!

Hey! Check it out. It looks like The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ Stormtrooper (Mimban) figure really is coming to Walmart in a more widespread fashion. I believe there have only been one or two store reports to date, correct? Well, JTA reader Anonymous has found a full case at his local Walmart in Virginia. The receipt for proof is in the image below.

Retailer Bargain Hunt is the latest discount chain to try and push the successful The Black Series [Phase III] First Order Special Forces Imperial TIE Fighter. How many of these things did Hasbro make? It’s like the 2012 TPM 3D debacle all wrapped up in one vehicle. It doesn’t go away. Bargain Hunt will be disappointed that they won’t be able to get $60 for this thing and will likely lose its shirt too on it. This report comes from member Brandon M. from The Black Series 6″ Action Figures Facebook Group.

Wow. This Walmart thinks The Vintage Collection is on clearance. Do they know something we don’t know? That’s doubtful, because they have three exclusives from The Black Series [Phase III] and The Vintage Collection lines that for intents and purposes have yet to arrive. I suppose our string of goodf luck could only last so long with Walmart. We all got a lift in our step when we dound wave 2 and wave 3 pretty much across the country. And we got more excited when the Imperial TIE Fighter started showing up too. Now we’re getting reports of the latest TVC figures getting out on clearance for almst 50% off. Does the Star Wars line truly have a chance at Walmart? Special thanks to JTA reader Reuben G. for the report and images.

Hey! If anyone’s interested, it looks like you can get pack-in figures for a reduced cost at my local TARGET right outside of Philadelphia. Just buy any Hasbro vehicle, take out the figure and nd then return it as if nothing is different. It appears to be going over quite well here. Good luck to all!

To my shock and surprise, I found my very first two Wampa/Luke Skywalker sets at my local Walmart in Northeast Philly. I have heard of others seeing older products arrive in their local stores too. It appears as if more stock is making its way to Walmart. Now, where are those Mimban Stormtroopers?

They’re out there, folks! BY the way, the sketch of Leia on the packaging is dreadful.

More Hasbro Star Wars Stuff Dumped At Ollie's

Ollie’s is apparently the dumping ground for the ton of unsold Hasbro Star Wars products that either never made it to retail or stuff that retailer gave up on after trying to sell it. JTA reader Edward D. finds something new every day he visits his local store. And the latest addition is the Walmart exclusive TBS [P3] 3.75″ AT-ST. The kicker? It’s only $10!
