For those of you interested, the Yoda/Darth Sidious Mission Series set is in stock at HasbroToyShop.com. The other sets are in stock too. FREE shipping is also an option if you can find $50 worth of in stock merchandise. (I could not find that much, so I will pass on this until further notice.)

Review: Elite TIE Interceptor - TAC - Toys R Us Exclusive

Posted by Paul | June 30, 2014 at 08:21 AM EDT |

We finish up our June pot luck with an exclusive from the 30 (77-07) line. The Elite TIE Interceptor was quite unexpected, but welcomed nonetheless. And it came with a shockingly cool 181st Squadron TIE Pilot. See all the details in our Research Droids Reviews today.

Thinking Outside Of The [Big] Box: A Few Ideas To Save Our Hobby

Posted by Paul | June 29, 2014 at 08:42 PM EDT |

The disappointment with Hasbro is palpable in the Star Wars collecting community. We have all aired our grievances loudly, but it seems that is all we've been doing since the demise of The Vintage Collection and it all seems to fall upon deaf ears. Between the dreadful paint operations on both kids' and collectors' figures (despite a confirmed instance of Hasbro rep stating that there are no differences between the two), the reduced articulation in the "collector" line and barely any changes in bottle-necked distribution, many of us our scratching our heads on how we arrived at this awful state of affairs after so many wonderful years of a fun and happy hobby. But what if there are solutions out there that we just haven't thought about yet? (more....)

Insidious Darth Sidious eBay Auction

Posted by Paul | June 28, 2014 at 11:37 PM EDT |

Speechless: Quality Is In The Toilet

Posted by Paul | June 27, 2014 at 10:00 AM EDT |

It's rare when I link to other reviews. After all, there is way too much competition out there and my opinions are the right ones. (Just kidding folks.) But I have made a much-needed exception today. Our friends at BanthaSkull.com have reviewed The Black Series Luke Skywalker (Dagobah) figure. To say that I am sick to my stomach is an understatement. Beyond the arms, their sample has a protruding and dripping eyeball and the beginnings of male pattern baldness on his head. What in the world has our hobby come to now? Rest in peace Star Wars collecting golden years (1995-2012). Penny wise pound foolish Hasbro is. But hey, they have plenty of contrarians on board holding their hands and I am sure someone will defend these cost saving measures.... too.

Review: Y-wing Fighter - OTC - Toys R Us Exclusive

Posted by Paul | June 27, 2014 at 01:10 AM EDT |

It was based on an Action Fleet vehicle. Learn more Research Droids Reviews entry.

UPDATE: Walgreens Exclusive Boba Fett? Maybe The Black Series?

Posted by Paul | June 26, 2014 at 06:17 PM EDT |

Well here is an interesting tidbit of news. Our friends at SWActionNews.com are reporting that Walgreens has an exclusive Boba Fett figure coming, perhaps from The Black Series line on tap. I will say that details are EXTREMELY murky from what the image of the computer screen shot reveals. It's unclear what exactly it is, but by the price point it seems it could be TBS6. And while it's not unprecedented for Walgreens to get an exclusive action figure, I will be shocked if this is the case with a Star Wars item next. Let's see what comes to light!

UPDATE: I just noticed that the UPC in this screen shot is NOT a Hasbro UPC number. I DO NOT KNOW if that means anything or not, like does Walgreens create their own cataloguing numbers or something else similar. But nedless to say, I am more skeptical of what this could be. But my skepticism shouldn't mean anything either.

She comes with all of the necessary accessories, like her helmet, scarf and blaster file, as well as an awesome alternate Clawdite "mask".

Star Wars Action News - Episode 426: Hot Wheels & Heavy Mattel

Posted by Chuck | June 18, 2014 at 08:29 PM EDT |

Star Wars collectors have braved the Hasbro booth year after year to get the latest, hottest exclusive toys. While the lines have been long and brutal and the toys expensive it was, at least for the past several years, the only line for exclusive, hard-to-get Star Wars toys. Until 2014. Now, as Disney's corporate partnerships bring new Star Wars toys around the globe, Hasbro toy competitor Mattel has a license for Hot Wheels from a Galaxy Far, Far Away! The line has been previewed and the first opportunity to get an exclusive Darth Vader car is at SDCC this summer! On this week's Star Wars Action News podcast Marjorie and Arnie discuss the released photos and share why collectors shouldn't need to race as hard to the Mattel booth on Preview Night!

Collectors went insane when Hasbro released characters in the 12 Inch Figure line that they DIDN'T release in the 3.75" basic figure line. Although Ewoks (Battle Of Endor) was released in 2003, it wasn't until 2008 during The Legacy Collection that we got the first 3.75" version of Leektar.

Hasbro is clueless, and it's evident that all they care about is the 6" scaled figures line. Many hoped that this set would include the desperately needed 3.75" Ponda Baba, but no. It contains two peg-warmers of 6" The Black Series figures line that NO ONE needs. Site store Andrews Toys has more info. If they included real plastic furniture, then this may be worth considering, but since it's just cardboard, well... pass.

A New Hope For The Black Series Yoda Figure?

Posted by Paul | June 10, 2014 at 08:51 AM EDT |

It looks like Star Wars collectors will have an "option" with The Black Series Yoda now. JTA reader and commenter Shane S. posts a picture in our comments showing that the TBS Yoda head (originally thought to be a swivel head joint) will fit on the TVC Yoda figure thanks to the same ball-socket joint. While not an ideal solution, it's certainly better than our current option. Click through for the proof. (I personally still am gun-shy to claim that the TBS Yoda head is a ball-socket joint. I thought it was swivel. So if anyone can verify/deny that, please post in our comments.)

Review: Skirmish At Carkoon - SW [S - P3] - Toys R Us Exclusive

Do you want to see four of the worst repainted figures of all time? Look no further than 2004's Star Wars "Saga" Skirmish At Carkoon Toys R Us exclusive multipack. This set is an abomination on so many levels. And poor TRU probably had no idea what they were signing on for with this release.

Review: Sith Lord Attack - TSC - Battle Packs

Posted by Paul | June 06, 2014 at 12:35 AM EDT |

There have been some fantastic Battle Packs sets throughout the years, but the Sith Lord Attack Battle Packs set from The Saga Collection may be one of the worst. Nothing post-Power Of The Jedi has been included in it which means that the figures were at least six years old when this set was released. Learn more in our Research Droids Reviews today.

Salt In The Wound: Yoda Wasn't Supposed To Turn Out Like This!

Posted by Paul | June 05, 2014 at 08:10 PM EDT |

The emotions are all over the place with The Black Series Yoda. But it is evident that the final figure isn't even close to how it was supposed to come out. How about 14 points of premium articulation? Yep! With special thanks to our friends at Yakface.com for doing some awesome investigating, they have the figure's blueprints on how Yoda was really supposed to really turn out.

Click through for more. I personally don't think I have come across a more bittersweet figure (Luke) in my lifetime of collecting. It's so good and so bad at the same time!

    

UPDATE: An image of Luke with his arms bent holding onto the backpack straps has been added courtesy of Rob.

The precursors to the Battle Packs, Hasbro released quite a few Toys R Us exclusive multipacks throughout the various phases of the Star Wars "Saga" line. Some were definitely better than others. Here is the Jedi Warriors set which is probably noteworthy only for the cool exclusive accessory contained within the set, which in case you don't know was originally intended to be packed with something bigger and better. Was this the first sign of Hasbro's yearly tooling cost woes? In general, this multipack is honestly a total pass. Find out more in our Research Droids Reviews today.

Anakin Skywalker TBS 6-inch Figure Skirt Fixed!

Posted by Paul | June 04, 2014 at 10:20 AM EDT |

Our friends at Yakface.com have proof that The Black Series 6" Anakin Skywalker figure has had its skirt fixed. (We knew it would! All you worry warts out there!) You can see him in high resolution right here on eBay!

In case you haven't heard or seen the breaking news, it has been slipped that the Millennium Falcon is indeed in Episode VII. Joblo.com has some excellent images if you're interested. But as far as Hasbro collectors are concerned, it now seems as if our February "insinuating" Crystal Ball rumor report now has some hard evidence to back up its claims. (Check out that report HERE if you weren't one of the 7,000+ people who read it yet.) It appears that many great things are in store for Star Wars collectors in the very near future!

Star Wars Action News: Episode 245

Posted by Paul | June 02, 2014 at 08:39 PM EDT |

With Hasbro having difficulty getting new figures to store pegs in any scale, collectors are forced to find their excitement places other than Wal-Mart, Target, and Toys R Us. Most specifically The Disney Stores where a new 13-inch line of talking, articulated Star Wars figures have started to appear. The X-Wing Luke Skywalker and Stormtrooper are on store shelves now, and in this episode of Star Wars Action News you can see a hands-on review of the Stormtrooper to find out if you need to add this to your collection.

But while Hasbro is in a late spring lull, news leaked last week of new Black Series releases on the horizon. In this show you can find out about three possible new Toys R Us exclusive multi-packs that have strong Original Trilogy ties.

With news on how YOU can be in Star Wars Episode VII, a discussion of the upcoming Disney Star Wars marathon, reports from Disney Star Wars Weekends and the UK Collectormania 21, and more, it's all in this week's Star Wars Action News!

It's the very last Ultimate Quarter Scale figure you will ever see reviewed here (that's because we have reviewed them all now and the line is kaput).

Review: Han Solo (A New Hope) - Ultimate Quarter Scale

Posted by Paul | June 01, 2014 at 05:20 AM EDT |

June is pot luck month! We will be looking at Star Wars collectibles from all over the place with no rhyme or reason. Let's finish up the UQS line first. The Ultimate Quarter Scale figures line died before it got really good. And there were some amazing planned figures too that will sadly never see the light of day. Han Solo (A New Hope) was the final and 9th figure released. It's good, but not perfect. See it in our Research Droids Reviews today.
