Next Line Up To Deflate Passionate Fans And Collectors: GI Joe

Posted by Paul | March 29, 2017 at 05:24 AM ET |

Bleeding Cool is reporting that Hasbro is about to relaunch the GI Joe toy line soon, but with a "Millennial" focus. (Do they come with security blankets and an extra dose of entitlement or something? Kidding! Some of my closest friends.... are parents of millennials, God bless them.) Anyway, Bleeding Cool accuses Hasbro of not understanding the franchise's core audience. Can you say déjà vu? People inaccurately accuse me of gloom and doom, but the fact of the matter is the basic action figure lines in Star Wars as well as across other brands is changing to its detriment. The truth is often hard to hear. I really don't think we're ever going back folks. Stick a fork in it. Anyway, check out this article. Hopefully Hasbro can find a way to explain to millennials who GI Joe even is. Hasbro says "We hope to create a head snap. It’s a different kind of Joe — one that still resonates with Joe fans but brings in an uninitiated audience and expands the audience internationally and domestically.” (Can't you do that after we're dead, Hasbro?)

Jedha Revolt Found In Ireland

JTA reader Toryn G. from Ireland sends us a report that the Jedha Revolt multipack has hit. We also have the UPC numbers to share with you if you're looking for this set there.

    

Wow. Here is an interesting scoop for those who have HEB grocery stores near them (I believe they're frequently found in Texas). JTA reader Steve U. has a friend in Texas who sent him this image from a HEB store. They're already selling the 40th anniversary figures. Why does this feel like The Phantom Menace 3D debacle of 2012 all over again to me? So is every store on Earth going to have the same four or five TBS6 [SW40] in stock for the next couple of year?

The new TARGET kicker displays full of some new and a lot of old products is beginning to hit across the nation. JTA reader Aric B. feels hat refreshing sense of hope by seeing something new in stores, but when the contents are mostly old it feels utlimately disappointing.

HURRY! TBS6 Darth Revan IN STOCK At Hasbro Toy Shop!

Posted by Paul | March 25, 2017 at 06:32 AM ET |

Hurry! Darth Revan is IN STOCK at Hasbro Toy Shop! Special thanks to JTA reader Craig B. for the alert!

UPDATE: It's sold out!

Another retailer that specializes in Star Wars action figures has sustained a setback. GameStop, according to Fortune.com, will be closing 150 stores throughout 2017. It seems that R5-D4 may not be affected in the least. If you remember our exclusive insider report, it's believed to arrive April 21st (there are other details in the report too). The possibility does exist that this exclusive release may just come and go before the stores start closing, unless GameStop decides to stop providing the failing stores with new products. How insane is this? They were one of the only retailers to get the TBS6 Darth Revan wave too; it seemed like a great source for the line. It's not a great climate for retailers in general, and it's disappointing to see something else work against the Star Wars line.

Sneak Peek! TARGET Exclusive TBS6 Imperial AT-ACT Driver

Posted by Paul | March 24, 2017 at 05:11 PM ET |

We have a sneak peek of the just released TARGET exclusive The Black Series [Phase III] Imperial AT-ACT Driver. It's a decent figure, but in our opinion it just too difficult to tell if it's screen accurate. There are many source materials out there and some look like this while others do not. Our jury is still out. Although nicely painted, the tooling is apparently getting too worn as our sample has extremely loose joints.... to the point of being annoying. Look for this to appear at your local TARGET stores soon. The RDR is coming soon but you can check out our rough gallery and Collector Notes. Extra special thanks to JTA reader and friend Jaken Wraith for obtaining this sample for us. We appreciate it IMMENSELY!

TBS6 [SW40] Legacy Pack With New Darth Vader Found In Canada!

Posted by Paul | March 22, 2017 at 02:01 PM ET |

kylocollector on Instagram is reporting that The Black Series 6" Early Bird "Leacy" Pack has been found in Canada. Special thanks to General Hux for the news. Please, no more Instagram news. I can't deal with another social media outlet. :)

Even controversial eBay seller tunghori knows how to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Star Wars better. While not rare, on average it goes for about double what tunghori is offering.

With Hasbro producing so very little for 3¾" (super-articulated) figure collectors, we're curious to know if you are buying any other lines? Are you saving money instead? This is an open post to shoot the breeze about your money, and talk about the money Hasbro is potentially losing. (The Black Series 6" figures only count if you're buying another toy line.) [We're trying something new here, so please avoid taboo topics such as politics, sports, and religion.] Is it possible that we're all beginning to realize how much we can live without our hobby (as sad as it seems)? Special thanks to JTA reader and friend Ayem Mayem for the post idea.

TBS6 Price Drops On Amazon… How Low Will They Go?

Posted by Paul | March 22, 2017 at 11:14 AM ET |

Things have been quiet on the new-figure-front. Now might be a great time to check out some low-priced items on Amazon. For example, TBS6 Captain Cassian Andor is so low it's been reduced to an 'add on item'. Click here to see if there's anything you have been holding out for.

Last night, Victoria from Victoria's Cantina messaged me about this Change.org petition. As you can see, she's petitioning Hasbro to bring back the super-articulated 3.75" line back into the mainstream and wants all of us to be part of it too. As you all know, the joy of collecting is a fragment of what it used to be, and we're still debating if the last half decade or so has or hasn't caused irreversible damage to this collector base. We're going to try one more time. Remember, don't be apathetic if this is your passion. We know there is a significant branch of collectors who solely collect 3.75" action figures. So please let your voice be heard!

Posted by Paul | March 21, 2017 at 12:30 AM ET |

Mace Windu

And speaking of 3.75" super-articulated action figures, I highly suggest you check out the last two Q&A sessions by Adam Pawlus at Galactic Hunter. As someone who works in the actual industry to a degree or two, I found these last two installments particularly honest and revealing. A strong proponent of 5POA and the latest products that Hasbro has on tap, it appears that Mr. Pawlus was a little more transparent about his feelings about what is going on in the Hasbro line. He uses 3.75" generically (5POA and SA), so try not to read into things one way or another unless specifically identified, but there are some fantastic points made. They're MUST-READS, guaranteed. THIS WEEK'S can be found HERE. LAST WEEK'S can be found HERE.

It's Big, It's Beautiful And Collectors Are Gonna Love It!

Posted by Paul | March 20, 2017 at 08:38 PM ET |

You think 3.75" collectors are finally facing the music? And that they're finally figuring out what the future holds for them? Look at this insane expired auction where a complete set of The Vintage Collection figures were sold for an astounding $3,250 on eBay. This averages to $28 a figure. Special thanks to friend Chris S. for the alert. As some give up and sell, others enter trying to complete their collection of these fabulous figures.

Review: Obi-Wan Kenobi - TSC - Heroes & Villains (8 of 12)

We're continuing to change gears and look at one of the earlier lines of "greatest hits" figures. Let's proceed with Obi-Wan Kenobi from The Episode III Heroes & Villains Collection.

Obi-Wan Kenobi

We have heard whispers of this for weeks now, and it appears we may have some proof. JTA reader Bobby sends us an image of TBS6 [P3] Princess Leia Organa sporting the new "40th anniversary" head sculpt in the red box. When we broke the news of Leia's head sculpt changing, we understood it that the figure would be coming in the red/black packaging too, so this sort of lines up with our original rumor. However, we don't have any additional inside knowledge that this has indeed transpired and that new red/black boxed Leia' will be the revised. It is certainly easy to fake, although it's a lot of unnecessary work to do this. It's also not out of the realm of possibility that this would happen. (The figure also wasn't being scalped as rare.) In short, you may want to pay attention and see what you can find out there. This sample was found at Salt Lake City Comic Con and the dealer had both versions at his booth.

Hailfire Droid & General Grievous - The Clone Wars [Blue] - Vehicles

We have rumored this for a while now and we have received additional proof today, although it's still officially a rumor at this point! And this is a fascinating development. JTA has just learned that Disney Parks is restarting its hugely popular Droid Factory in the form of PROTOCOL DROIDS. Now, we don't know if they're focusing solely on 3PO-series styled droids or if this line will include other protocol droid-like sculpts (i.e. HK-series, CZ-series, RA-7-series. etc.) We have also learned that the Astromech Droid parts, while no new parts are coming, will remain at the parks. A second "Protocol Droid" kiosk will be placed next to the Astromech Droid kiosk and visitors to the park will be able to build both types of droids. We have also learned that these parts are due to hit theme parks soon, but the guess is that they'll be formally announced at Star Wars Celebration and perhaps debut on May the 4th this year. OH! And the huge news? C-3PO is believed to be part of the first wave; a figure we have been waiting to see made with this popular sculpt for YEARS now. More to come as we follow this story. Stay tuned!

The full line-up of Collector's Track panels have been revealed for Celebration next month. Along with the panels, there will be 20 different Star Tots given out. So, if you attend a panel, you get a tot. Get the full line-up right here!

Collecting In The EU: It's Like An Icy Tundra Of Nothingness

Posted by Paul | March 15, 2017 at 10:11 AM ET |

Before you say this sounds a lot like the USA at the moment, check this out. We have heard from multiple foreign sources now that there is major trouble in paradise (when it comes to Hasbro's distribution in the EU). Per our MULTIPLE sources, they're not getting the Darth Revan wave. They're not getting the Lando Calrissian wave. And the Rogue One Admiral Raddus wave isn't coming either. They're not getting the Thrawn wave. They're also not getting the TBS 3.75" AT-ST, the Kohl's exclusive Rogue One set, the TBS [SW40] Luke X-wing Pilot or TBS [SW40] R5-D4. To get these figures, these are just some of the prices collectors in the EU need to pay: 3.75" Thrawn = 40 euros, TBS6 Darth Revan = 70 Euros, TBS6 Sabine Wren = 60 euros. Yes, this is truly the best time to indeed collect Star Wars. Heck, the USA hasn't even seen most of these figures arrive at Big Box yet. Add to this delayed solid case packs and the inability to get out new products, you really have to wonder why the Star Wars line is in the state that it's in right now. I thought the 6" line was supposed to save collecting?

It's the ONLY WAY you can get this particular version and color of the Hailfire Droid, but you probably would never pay its ridiculous original MSRP.

We really let our hair down in this interview, so Hasbro, please don't read this one! Anyway, YOU however should definitely check it out!

Review: Obi-Wan Kenobi's Starfighter - TCW [B] - Vehicle

Posted by Paul | March 13, 2017 at 12:40 AM ET |

TBS6 40th Anniversary Figures At TRU.com Including R2-D2!

Hurry! The 40th anniversary The Black Series 6" figures are available to order at ToysRUs.com. R2-D2 is in stock too! Special thanks to friend Danny R. for the alert!

Note to Hasbro: We know what the next case pack looks like for The Black Series [Phase III] 6" line and it makes sense. But we hope that you're already preparing solid case packs of the Emperor's Royal Guard. This figure will be the most sought after figure to army build since the 3.75" version. Please act proactively and get these solid case packs prepared immediately. Get those factories working second and third shift to produce as many of these figures as they can. They will ALL sell. Thank you! If you don't do something to meet the demand we know it will have, you're going to have an ocean of fans filled with disgust and aggravation.

TBS6 Darth Revan Solid Case Packs Delayed

Posted by Paul | March 12, 2017 at 01:00 PM ET |

We"hinted" a while back that we could expect to see The Black Series [Phase III] 6" Darth Revan solid case packs. We've heard that they're supposedly still coming, but we have also learned that they're likely to expect a delay (sometime in the Spring) before we actually see them. This whole wave has been impossible to find at retail, and it's not a great sign that these figures have been so elusive. The good news is that key characters will be returning soon. And who knows where TARGET's, Toys R Us' and Walmart's stock is.

If you're a The Black Series 6" collector, what criticisms if any do you have of the line? What isn't it doing that it should? We often hear that the range is very limited, and that the likelihood of getting background aliens and B/C characters is likely never going to happen. By nature, Hasbro will be forever playing "catch up" with this line since it's new and has only been in production since 2013. Do you see the line taking more risks and perhaps attempting to reach different generations than the current audience of The Force Awakens and other new Star Wars Entertainment? Do you foresee Ree-Yees, Yak Face, Lobot, Padme, Count Dooku, young Anakin Skywalker, Jar Jar Binks, Battle Droids, Super Battle Droids, Tessek, Captain Fordo, Darth Talon, K'Kruhk or even Kit Fisto (among many others) ever becoming part of the line? At the rate they're going, it seems like it will take years to even scratch the surface. Thoughts?

Hilarious Star Wars Figure Bootlegs: May The Farce Be With You!

Posted by Paul | March 07, 2017 at 03:42 PM ET |

With special thanks to JTA reader Paul B., you must look at these hilarious bootleg Star Wars figure auctions on eBay. Have you ever seen anything so pitiful in your life? Click the thumbnails below to be taken to those auctions.

    

OK, it's SUPER EARLY and it's only a "rumor", but one of our sources has provided evidence to us that a new Episode VIII Finn is CURRENTLY not in the first three waves of The Black Series [Phase III?] line up this Fall for Force Friday launch. It's truly hard to believe that this character would be delayed, ignored or altogether forgotten, but our eyes did a double take when we reviewed the proof, just as we're sure your eyes are already disbelieving what you're reading right here. We're strictly talking about a "basic" boxed release of Finn, not an exclusive (where Hasbro might slot him if this rumor turns out to be true – I mean, it is true now, but this could possibly change by the time we reach September). It's definitely hard to process this. Stay close as we follow this story for new developments. Hopefully this will change. I can already see the #WheresFinn social media storm.

They were a huge hit in the 30 (77-07) line, so Hasbro re-released them The Legacy Collection.

Why Hasbro Is Putting Kmart Out Of Business

Posted by Paul | March 05, 2017 at 05:51 PM ET |

The headline is a joke (sarcasm) for those that think it's meant to be serious (you have to clarify these things nowadays). Here is a perfect example of why The Black Series 6" line just doesn't cut the mustard like the 3.75" super-articulated line does. Kmart is DROWNING in their exclusive figures and Hasbro has already deposited their check from them. Sad. It looks similar in my local Kmart stores (who are closing left and right mind you). Without versatility, selection and volume, a line dies, not thrives. No one cares about TFA, Hasbro. Stop making characters from it. It's so 2015. And 6" collectors are wondering why they don't have that complementary piece to Jyn Erso yet..... LOL! Who remembers all of those brilliant TVC exclusives that Kmart did that flew out of most stores? Yeah, we do too. Special thanks to JTA reader and friend Josh M. for this image of madness.

Catch Up On Older Product At Discounted Prices On Amazon

With the lull in new product now is a good time to dig through the pages on Amazon to find some of the 'older' product at discount prices. If you've been holding out on some of this stuff or are looking for some customizing fodder it's worth looking through the listings. You can find The Force Awakens, The Black Series, and Rogue One product at lower than retail prices if you dig deep enough. For example, check out this heavily discounted Die Cast helmet set for $3.39. There's lots of great prices to be found if you take the time to look.
