Walmart Exclusive TBS Line Pricing Drama Ends? Can BAW Be Fixed?

Posted by Paul | April 26, 2016 at 08:29 AM ET |

While this "story" is undocumented and only second hand knowledge, the fact remains that things were changed at Walmart.com for the exclusive The Black Series 3.75" line and how they are now priced. We have learned through a few friends of the site that someone who worked for Disney contacted the appropriate parties at Walmart to make the ever changing pricing of the figures cease. If you look now, the fluctuating prices have indeed stopped. But now it appears that the same things needs to be done for the Build A Weapon line. We hope that the same can be done for the other lines as well. Maybe it can't since the rest of the line isn't exclusive to Walmart.

Speaking to animation director Rob Coleman, Lucas said of “his ultimate framing device” that: “The entire story of Star Wars is actually being recounted to the keeper of the Journal of the Whills—remember that?—a hundred years after the events of Return of the Jedi by none other than R2-D2.” (more....)

It appears that Hasbro is adding collector stamps to the Walmart exclusive The Black Series 3.75" line now! No, it's just to block the missing accessory. Is it too cruel to wish that the punishment for Star Wars action figure theft would be hanging, drawing and quartering? It seems as if it would be the only deterrent to make people stop this despicable act. JTA reader Jaret T. sends us an almost humorous act of vandalism and theft for a 3.75" TBS figure.

StarNewsPhilly.com has posted an article of events taking place on Star Wars Day: Wednesday, May The Fourth this year in the Philly area. JTA's Paul Harrison was interviewed for the news story and will be guest speaker at Nerd Nite Philly where he will be testing his speaking skills with a presentation on Star Wars collecting. This fun event will be taking place from 7:30 PM to 9:30 PM that Wedneday night and all local collectors and readers of JTA are urged to attend. We hope to see you there!

Before PC. Before agenda. Before accusations of exclusivity instead of inclusiveness. Before the dark times. There was once a beautiful supplemental Star Wars story contained within the archives of the Original Expanded Universe. Site GiveUsLegends.net is trying to make Lucasfilm see its relevancy in the current Star Wars canon and to bring it back and continue it. Yahoo News has the story.

The Black Series Luke Skywalker is currently holding strong at $21.99 on Amazon! It probably won't stay that way for long after this post...

Takodana Encounter Hits Walmarts in Canada

The Takodana Encounter multipack is hitting Walmarts in Canada. JTA reader Tom sent in his latest find...

Just saw the Takodana Encounter multipack releases in two different Walmart stores around Montreal, QC, Canada today. The pack is listed at 29.92$ CAD + tx. I bought one... for Maz Kanata! Walmart had 6 multipack in each of both stores.

Add IG-88's Head To Your Star Wars Collection!

Posted by Paul | April 18, 2016 at 07:59 AM ET |

Fly Navy Heritage Trust is a charity trying to raise funds here in England to keep their Sea Vixen (a Cold War era) jet flying. Interestingly they have found, in a container of old parts, an IG-88 Droid head (not the actual prop, but the same car part used in the Star Wars films)! Actually, it is a Rolls Royce Nene engine flame tube from the jet exhaust which was used to make the classic Star Wars character's head. (It can also be found in Chalmun's cantina.) They've reached out to us because they'd like to auction it off. They believe it would be a fabulous way to raise funds for the charity! Check out the auction HERE and be sure to leave your thoughts in the comments.

I'll Give You $7.99 For A 5POA Figure And $1.00 For A SA One!

Posted by Paul | April 17, 2016 at 07:44 PM ET |

JTA reader Aarren A. sends us proof that the Walmart exclusive The Black Series [Phase III] 3.75" figures are now ringing up $1.00 each in his area of IA. In my opinion this really doesn't bode well for SA 3.75" in general. Then again, the incessant shipping of only five new action figures for a brand new Star Wars film doesn't guarantee continual sell through either. Hasbro – please ship no less than 12 new 3.75" figures at a pop or this will continue to be a problem. While this may not be the case in every Walmart store, it is evidence like this that makes me believe that the super-articulated line SHOULD NOT be a retailer exclusive. Make it mainline again!

While Lando is a very exciting addition, Dengar is an odd choice. Even among the bounty hunters. Bossk or IG-88 would've been better choices.

What Standalone Star Wars Film Do You Want To See?

Posted by Mike_Taber | April 14, 2016 at 11:27 AM ET |

Now that we've had our first look at Rogue One and a front runner has apparently emerged in the search for a young Han Solo, the standalone Star Wars films are beginning to take shape. Rogue One looks promising but I'm still dreading the young Han Solo movie despite its strong creative team (Phil Lord, Christopher Miller, Lawrence and Jon Kasdan). I just think a young Han Solo movie is a fundamentally misguided idea. Hopefully Lord, Miller, and the Kasdans can prove me wrong. Right now Rogue One and the young Han Solo movie are the only confirmed standalone films, but what kind of stories do you want to see? The long-rumored Boba Fett movie? A Porkins origin story? A movie explaining how Admiral Ackbar knew it was a trap? Personally, my vote is for an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie starring Ewan McGregor. Obi-Wan is one of the most popular Star Wars characters, Ewan is willing to come back, and you have the entire time period between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope to tell a story. Why hasn't this happened yet?

The prices on the big figures seem to fluctuate (at least in my area – Philly suburbs) between $49.99, $59.99 and of course full retail of $99.99. Just wanted to say thanks again and hope this helps!"

With the release of The Force Awakens on Blu-ray and DVD, many TARGET stores are getting displays full of products. (Is it just me, or do you not see TFA selling?) For the first time ever, many readers are finding the TBS6 Jango Fett wave stocked in them (or subsequently relocated to the shelves. I can attest to seeing this at my local TARGET in Neshaminy PA. And JTA reader Richard F. can report the same find in Burlington NJ. Click through for his report!

File Under: Too Much Too Late (More Examples....)

Posted by Paul | April 09, 2016 at 08:40 PM ET |

Well, better late than never? Or is it? Stuff that we many of us really don't need to see anymore is cluttering the shelves at many retailers. What does it look like in your neck of the woods? JTA reader and friend John L. lets us know what his area looks like. Click through for more....

Folks, don't give into the hype that Asty and Hux are rare. They're commanding RIDICULOUS aftermarket prices. Place your pre-order for the entire wave at JTA sponsor Entertainment Earth and don't over pay. More of this wave is coming next month.

The Force Awakens/TBS6 Lineup: Too Much Too Late Now?

Posted by Paul | April 02, 2016 at 11:40 PM ET |

As Star Wars collectors, Hasbro can rarely make us happy all of the time. That's a given. But I don't even think they can deny that Force Friday didn't go as planned. We're not going to beat up on them about that. But now if you go to Toys R Us, TARGET and Walmart, you'll find that wave 3 of The Black Series [Phase III] 6" line is clogging the shelves. Now, my area was one that has received next to nothing of ANY The Force Awakens products (especially in comparison to the mid and south West and New England areas) and even Philly is swimming in these figures now. Captain Phasma can be found everywhere. Even the Walmart exclusive 3.75" line (wave 3) has been overstocked to the point of not even fitting in the allotted spaces it's been granted. These quantities should have been available on September 4th, not April 2015. I wonder if the newest products will even find their way to my areas now because I don't foresee this old product moving out to make room for the truly new stuff. Hopefully The Force Awakens DVD/Blu-ray release will bring some toy buyers into stores again, because right now I don't see much of the line moving at all.... whether they're just peg-warmers or actually new and hot products.

But please take that with a grain of salt until it is confirmed. It could just be some of the new figures already out now. Also, many stores have already put out the dedicated product kick displays sans The Force Awakens media (just the related products and toys). Check your local ads for TARGET coupons which include $10 off star wars merchandise totaling $50 or $25 off star wars merchandise totaling $100. Let us know what you find too!

We're a tad late posting this story, but the TBS6 Jango Fett is making frequent appearance both online and at brick and mortar for the last couple of weeks.

Sabine Wren To Receive A More Developed Role In Rebels Season 3

Posted by Paul | April 02, 2016 at 02:09 PM ET |

Sabine Wren will have a much bigger role in Star Wars: Rebels season 3. That's what io9.com is reporting! This will be wonderful, as long as they're able to diminish her use of modern American vernacular like "Seriously?", "For reals!" and whatever other expressions make me cringe my neck. (I am partially exaggerating, so don't take the criticisms all too seriously. Seriously!) Here is to Sabine Wren getting some decent and honorable screen time!

Well, we certainly didn't expect to feel this way. But we think that Luke Skywalker from The Black Series [Phase III] 6" line might be one of the best figures to date. See why we had this epiphany in 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.

UPDATE: The regular snowtrooper is actually what is shipping. Best case? If you still need the regular snowtrooper you might want to get this. Thanks for those that reported in on what they are receiving.
