Review: AT-AP Walker - TCW [B] - Midsize Vehicle

Posted by Paul | February 20, 2017 at 12:35 AM ET |

The Clone Wars [Blue] line had some great vehicles. Let's check out the repacked AT-AP Walker. It's the focus of our Research Droids Reviews today. Be sure to leave your own thoughts in our comments section, vote in the poll or even leave comments about it on our Facebook page.

AT-AP Walker

Sigh. Look at this madness on eBay. In my opinion, Hasbro should have taken pre-orders for these to make sure that everyone who wanted a set ordered a set. These are coming to etailers and stores soon, but it would have bene nice for everyone who wanted an early set to grab them without scalper influence.

Next Wave Of Walmart Figures: Not A Four-Pack

Posted by Paul | February 19, 2017 at 12:11 PM ET |

There have been questions about the next wave of Walmart exclusive 3.75" TBS figures. The file name was listed (by Hasbro) as a four-pack, but each figure has a unique SKU. This is not a single-packaged four-pack.

A Closer Look At The TBS6 Death Star Trooper

Posted by Paul | February 19, 2017 at 09:29 AM ET |

We asked Hasbro to bend down C-3PO so we could get a better look at the Death Star Trooper's uniform. Click image below to check him out. You may or may not have heard yet in the Hasbro Q&A, but the black uniform was something Lucasfilm, LTd. dictated. Lucasfilm, let Hasbro be! We need that gray uniform desperately.

TBS6 Princess Leia Organa: New Portrait INDEED!

Posted by Paul | February 18, 2017 at 09:00 PM ET |

Just as we had reported many moons ago (last summer), Hasbro confirmed today during the Toy Fair presentation that they went back to the drawing board with The Black Series [Phase III] Princess Leia Organa's portrait. We think she looks incredibly better. Hasbro also wanted to know how JTA knew about this. Sadly we wouldn't reveal our sources. Click below to see a closer image of this significantly updated head sculpt.

The Black Series 6" 40th Anniversary Carded Figures To Come Punched

Posted by Chuck | February 18, 2017 at 05:19 PM ET |

The 40th Anniversary 6-Inch figures will not come 'unpunched'. All Vintage-style carded figures are going to be pre-punched. This was confirmed by Hasbro's Joe Ninivaggi during our Q&A.

Update: There seems to be some confusion in our comments. These figures will not have a perferated punch in them for someone to 'punch' out. They will likely be factory punched. So, there will be no versions available that have a punch in them. We'll know for sure when we get our first orders (if it's die cut or actually punched).

French Title Reveal Of Episode VIII Confirms "Jedi" Is Plural

Posted by Paul | February 17, 2017 at 08:51 AM ET |

JTA reader Vincent M. alerts us to the French reveal of The Last Jedi movie title and it confirms that Jedi is indeed plural in this instance. Whether this is a misprint (possible but unlikely) or not remains to be seen, but at least it is plausible to believe that it refers to more than one Jedi now.The Independent has more infomation on this. This additional development can be found HERE,

UPDATE: The title of this film has been released in MANY languages today and all have Jedi as plural.

For The Black Series 6" Collectors Only: Only Your Opinions Here

Posted by Paul | February 16, 2017 at 08:08 AM ET |

Now that 3.75" super-articulated fans have gotten out their frustrations, we wanted to provide a safe space (that is NOT sarcasm) for The Black Series 6" collectors to voice their opinions on the recently revealed "TBS6 TVC" Luke Skywalker: X-wing Fighter Pilot figure that appeared on the Star Wars Show. You won't be attacked and you won't be criticized at all. This is YOUR show. Some talking points we'd encourage are the following: Are you excited for mostly the same figures to be repackaged on a vintage Kenner inspired card back? Doe the vintage Kenner packaging resonate with you as a newbie collector? Do you even care what packaging looks like for these figures? Do you really think six inches warrants a $20 MSRP? It would be ideal if 3.75" fans don't jump into this discussion right away to adulterate the conversation. Honestly, let us know how this reveal sits with you as a 6" collector.

Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy and Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson will appear on stage at Star Wars Celebration in Orlando on Friday, April 14th. There will be plenty of surprises and special guests on the panel to keep the excitement brewing and speculation spinning throughout the rest of the weekend. Visit http://www.starwarscelebration.com/ for tickets, and check back closer to the show for queuing and wristband details.

The flagship panel for the last 2 celebrations (The Force Awakens panel, Rogue One panel) were both awesome to be a part of, so I expect this one will be just as exciting! I'm looking forward to it! Click here for details!
