Review: Anakin Skywalker (Mechanic) - POTJ - Basic

Posted by Paul | October 02, 2014 at 01:05 AM EDT |

Sometimes the other things that an action figure is packed with can be more exciting than the actual action figure itself. That's about how we feel with the Anakin Skywalker (Mechanic) figure from the Power Of The Jedi line. See what we mean in our Research Droids Reviews today.

Review: Sandtrooper (Tatooine Patrol) - POTJ - Basic

Posted by Paul | September 29, 2014 at 12:20 AM EDT |

Is it a dirty corporal or a dirty sergeant? Because we have no idea. There was no Sandtrooper with a gray pauldron in Episode IV, but that's what Hasbro decided to give the Sandtrooper (Tatooine Patrol) figure in the Power Of The Jedi line. It's a great figure nonetheless. See this figure in its entirety in our Research Droids Reviews today.

Review: Imperial Officer - POTJ - Basic

Posted by Paul | September 28, 2014 at 12:40 AM EDT |

We're finishing up the basic figures in the Power Of The Jedi line and the Imperial Officer is up next. Sadly, this is not the figure Hasbro meant to update as this is not an Imperial Officer. It's an Imperial Technician as seen in Episode V and Episode VI. Check it out in our Research Droids Reviews today.

Naboo Starfighter Shows Up At Retail Discount Chains.... Again!

Posted by Paul | September 27, 2014 at 06:43 PM EDT |

Well, here's proof you never know what's going to happen and how distribution can turn on a dime. If you live in the mid west and central USA, you have likely heard of ALCO discount stores. Guess what they're getting in now? JTA reader Mark H. sends us proof that the Naboo Starfighter has reared its ugly head again. Mark found the Naboo Starfighter at the Alco store in Peru, Indiana. It was $19.99 and they are having a buy one get one 50% off sale, but he believes that ends today.

The Black Series Proto Fett Will Be One Of The Biggest Peg-Warmers Yet

Posted by Paul | September 27, 2014 at 08:26 AM EDT |

The Black Series Walgreen figures are out of stock until November and Walgreens is kind enough to put signage up explaining this. But be not alarmed. As Walgreens purchaser Steven Anne revealed on his Twitter page, Walgreens has 40,000 Proto Fetts on order (which is an inordinate amount of figures in this day and age). And because it's estimated that there is about half that number of Hasbro collectors actively purchasing Star Wars figures, this likely means that Proto Fett will become instant shelf rot. Take that scalpers! Special thanks to JTA reader Brad for alerting us to this recent development. Click through for more

Review: Rebel Trooper (Tantive IV Defender) - POTJ - Basic

Posted by Paul | September 27, 2014 at 12:55 AM EDT |

Nothing is worse than waiting for an update to a character you desperately want to see improved upon and then that new figure just doesn't meet your expectations either. That's sort of what went down with the Rebel Trooper (Tantive IV Defender) figure from the Power Of The Jedi line. Learn more in our Research Droids Reviews today.

Hasbro's Annual 'Twas The Night Before.... Party Coming Soon!

Posted by Paul | September 26, 2014 at 01:40 PM EDT |

Jedi Temple Archives will be attending Hasbro's exclusive 'Twas The Night Before.... Party event on Wednesday, October 8, 2014. This annual event takes place the day before New York Comic Con starts and they typically reveal new things coming later this year and/or early 2015. (This is the event where the first prototypes for The Black Series wave 4 was revealed.) It would be nice if they use this event to reveal the rest of those "18" figures that still have yet to be officially confirmed (and hopefully others). We will be brainstorming ways to handle the Q&A more efficiently this time around so stay tuned for how this will be handled. In the meantime, start thinking about what you'll want to ask and/or waht comments you'd like relayed.

Review: Chewbacca (Millennium Falcon Mechanic) - POTJ - Basic

Posted by Paul | September 26, 2014 at 01:40 AM EDT |

The first true to scale Chewbacca action figure was the POTJ Chewbacca (Millennium Falcon Mechanic) figure. It doesn't hold up terribly well today, but it's not half that bad either. The point here is that it changed how all future Chewbacca action figures would be approached. It's the focus of our Research Droids Reviews today.
