TFA Set To Cross $2 Billion At Worldwide Box Office

Posted by Mike_Taber | February 05, 2016 at 03:49 PM EST |

Star Wars: The Force Awakens will reportedly pass the $900 million mark at the domestic box office and the $2 billion mark at the worldwide box office this weekend. The Force Awakens will become just the third film to pass $2 billion in sales. Two James Cameron directed films, Avatar and Titanic, are the only other films to reach that milestone. Although The Force Awakens is running roughly $140 million ahead of Avatar at the domestic box office, it will be virtually impossible to pass Avatar's $2.7 billion global haul (and likely take a re-release to come close). Variety has the full story

The Vintage Collection: Magnificent, Unwavering And Astounding

Posted by Paul | February 05, 2016 at 11:23 AM EST |

There is an unstoppable aftermarket force when it comes to The Vintage Collection – the greatest Hasbro invention ever. And it is becoming overwhelming. Some of the most common figures that peg-warmed during its original run are commanding ridiculous amounts of money and ones that were hot at their release are nearly untouchable if you're interested in purchasing them today. Check out just what some eBayers are getting for these modern classic gems. It makes us wonder if this collection will one day compete with the actual vintage Kenner line from 1978-1985, because right now some of the TVC are more expensive than the figures from the 70s and 80s.... carded too! And now that we know that Hasbro doesn't have access to all of their older and recent sculpts, we may NEVER see many of these masterpieces again.

We Need A The Black Series Six-Inch Greatest Hits Assortment....

Posted by Paul | February 03, 2016 at 09:27 PM EST |

One of our readers directed our attention to what The Black Series [Phase I] Anakin Skywalker figure is commanding on the aftermarket. We personally never saw this wave hit retail, but we're just as shocked at what it's selling for on eBay. There are so many figures Hasbro needs to reissue in this line. It's definitely time to release a "greatest hits" case assortment out on the market to help kill these aftermarket prices.

Titanium Helmets Found In Canada!

Posted by Paul | February 03, 2016 at 09:18 PM EST |

I personally cannot wait for the Titanium Series one-sixth scale helmets to arrive at my local stores. I patiently waited for Gentle Giant Ltd. to release their Armory line, but that never came to pass and the line was ultimately abandoned. Thankfully, it looks like Hasbro has truly crafted a nice collectors' item and I hope the line succeeds. JTA Canadian reader Daniel McG. found these in Montreal Quebec today.

Hasbro Doesn't Set The Prices, So Walmart Will Rollforward!

Posted by Paul | February 03, 2016 at 08:21 AM EST |

We told you that Walmart was the worst retailer to get an online or brick and mortar exclusive collector line. We even told Hasbro the same thing. Despite Hasbro assuaging us that Walmart knew what they had in this exclusive line and were ready to take it on full throttle, we don't see the fruits of any labors paying off now. Many of our reader have yet to see this line at all, and many others haven't see anything past wave 1. Now that new figures are arriving in select stores and online, people are taking advantage of the line's scarcity... including WALMART! Now, we know that third party sellers are scalping these figures right under Walmart's nose (on the same product page), but it seems that Walmart doesn't want to miss any of this action and have now upped the prices of their own exclusive line as high as threefold on some figures. This is what WALMART was selling Rey for a few hours ago (prices fluctuate all the time). This isn't a third party seller. Will this never end? Thanks to the many of you who wrote in upset about this.
