Kmart.com Cancels (Some Of) TBS6 Kylo Ren Exclusive Orders!

Posted by Paul | October 30, 2015 at 09:46 PM ET |

You've probably already caught wind of this in our comments earlier today, but while Kmart.com has begun shipping order out (like mine), they've also been apparently cancelling the orders of some of The Black Series 6" Kylo Ren exclusives placed by our readers. While it may have something to do with pre-order/credit card rules, we have received unconfirmed information that Kmart reps are actually telling our readers that the orders placed today are getting fulfilled before the order placed when the item first went up. (Are they crazy telling them that?) We have heard of about a half dozen cancellations so far. Are you one of them too? Please click through to read an email received by one of our readers from Kmart.com.

LEGO Droid Tales Series Finale Advanced Screening Overview

Posted by Paul | October 29, 2015 at 09:11 PM ET |

Jedi Temple Archives was invited to a private LEGO screening event in New York City today to see the SERIES FINALE of Droid Tales. In addition, LEGO showed the invited media guests the latest LEGO Star Wars products. They also premiered a new book entitled Small Scenes from a Big Galaxy. This modestly priced (and gorgeous) book gets released on November 10th. We highly suggest you pre-order your copy now. It's simply stunning. Anyway, the Droid Tales Series Finale premieres this Monday on Disney XD. We were graciously treated to the humor, action and purely beautiful animation a few days early and we have a special rundown of what was seen. Spoiler warnings apply, but click through for a brief synopsis of what you can expect to see yourself on Monday! We've kept most of the big secrets safe for your own enjoyment.

Entertainment Earth Exclusive Assault Walker On Amazon For $20

Posted by Chuck | October 28, 2015 at 03:08 PM ET |

Amazon.com has about 6 of the Entertainment Earth exclusive Desert Assault Walker with First Order Stormtrooper Commander listed in stock with free shipping for $20. If this price better suits you then you'd better grab it before it's gone, because they probably won't last long. We reviewed this today in case you need to have a closer look at it!

Yikes. Look what $30 of your hard-earned money can get you in the Star Wars line today. You should take that as a negative and not a positive. Where are the fantastic Entertainment Earth exclusives we used to get? Why can't we have Build A Droid multipacks or TVC repacks? Come on Adam Pawlus! Can't you please help us?

Darth Vader and Stormtrooper are featured. Retail is $109.99 to $139.99 each.These will likely be available between November 1st and November 21st (and probably after....)

Toys R Us doesn't realize that they don't sell 3.75" The Black Series figures anymore. Or could this mean something else? Hmm. Anyway, The Force Awakens 3.75" figures and vehicles are 20% off November 1st through November 21st. Hopefully they'll have product in stock.

Do You See What I See? (Nothing But Pegboard?)

Posted by Paul | October 24, 2015 at 08:49 PM ET |

Sigh. I don't know what your areas look like obviously as I live outside of Philadelphia and don't get out that much. And your own mileage could greatly vary (I doubt that honestly). But I have to admit that I am already exhausted of seeing nothing in the Star Wars sections but big blue pegboard at Walmart, starry black pegboard at TARGET and off-white pegboard at Toys R Us. This is a NEW STAR WARS MOVIE PRODUCT LAUNCH so my brain is unable to compute how stores aren't inundated with Hasbro's The Force Awakens products. Compressed schedule or not, Hasbro is ALWAYS playing catch up. Is this unavoidable? Isn't Disney upset? Secondary (i.e. not important) sub-lines like Hero Mashers and Micro Machines have managed to make their way to stores, but the core basic figure, well, let's just say that thank goodness I go on about 1% of the toy runs I did during the 2006 – 2012 golden era years of Hasbro. What have your experiences been? If it wasn't for online, I don't think I would have anything for my collection or JTA to review than what I found beyond Force Friday. Let's hope Hasbro's promises of a product-filled November do indeed come to pass. It HAS to otherwise it's going to be a very disappointing Christmas for young Star Wars fans.

The Force Awakens Product Gets Clearanced Out At TARGET

A Third Shampoo Bottle Scale Arrives At Retail!

Posted by Paul | October 24, 2015 at 08:20 PM ET |

Here is another scale of figures arriving at retail in Singapore that we officially know nothing about since Hasbro didn't let us know. Apparently these will only be released in East Asia and few other international areas per our source. The 5" – 6" scale shampoo bottles are certainly perplexing. Special thank to JTA reader Dave Y. for the news. Also, our friends at ToyzMag.com have more information on these products.

What a shame the waves only contain a handful of characters.

Funniest Looking Ahsoka Tano Figure Ever....

Posted by Paul | October 21, 2015 at 02:18 PM ET |

JTA reader and friend Matthew D. forwards an extremely humorous picture of what may be the funniest looking Ahsoka Tano figure we have ever seen. He found it at a TARGET in Concord NH. Look carefully! It's those "wonderful" paint operations at work again! Click the image below to check it out!

Sealed Case Of Poe Dameron/Riot Control Stormtrooper: Hoard Or Hobby?

Posted by Paul | October 21, 2015 at 12:58 PM ET |

An image has shown up on Facebook of someone (who may even be a reader of ours – not sure – it's why we're posting this as anonymous) who has purchased a sealed case of the Poe Dameron/First Order Riot Control Stormtrooper TARGET exclusive. I am assuming since we posted the news with the DPCI we're somehow indirectly responsible for this. While the comments on the actual post are relatively harmless, a few discussions outside of the thread are filled with a little bit of anger. Now, I feel a purchase like this is just plain silly. But if this person wants to buy a sealed case, why can't he? Now, hear me out. I am not saying it's OK to do this at the expense of those who are unable to secure this themselves. But if someone wants a sealed case, why can't Hasbro make enough to make this guys hoard completely worthless? Then and only then will the perceived greediness die out. If Hasbro made enough where there were plenty everywhere where the last few units needed to be cleared out on discount, then people like this guy would perhaps revisit the concept of "needing" a sealed case of six. Of course, finding that balance is the key. By the way, how does one possibly enjoy a sealed case of toys. I find that very alarming. Are you superman with X-ray vision maybe?

Entertainment Earth TFA Exclusive Shipping!

Posted by Paul | October 21, 2015 at 12:43 PM ET |

A few items have begun shipping from Entertainment Earth today, including The Black Series [Phase II] Darth Vader and the Entertainment Earth exclusive Star Wars Desert Assault Walker with Figure.

We are getting reports that the second wave of The Black Series [Phase III] 6" figures are really starting to hit out there. We have reports from Kmart, TARGET and not Gamestop. Time to start hunting again! JTA reader Chewza sends us a report from Gamestop.

Technically, the Poe Dameron/First Order Riot Control Stormtrooper TARGET/Argos exclusive doesn't exist. And it's only a mirage that you may be finding it with the DPCI magic trick at the TARGET store level. And that's because Hasbro hasn't announced it yet. You should know by now how nothing is true until Hasbro announces it! All joking aside, despite Poe's awkward "blue beard", it's probably the nicest thing made for The Force Awakens this year. (Next time ignore the facial hair, Hasbro.) It's honestly that good aside from that. Learn more in our Research Droids Reviews today!

Jedi Temple Archives Reaches 10,000 Facebook Likes.... The REAL Way!

Posted by Paul | October 20, 2015 at 11:05 AM ET |

Thank you for helping us reach a landmark goal today! We have reached an amazing 10K real Facebook likes today! While JTA honestly doesn't put much clout in social media (sometimes to our own detriment) because of all the ways you can cheat making oneself look bigger than you are in this day and age, we're still honored that 10,000 real Star Wars collectors and readers of our site have decided to publicly "thumbs up" us on Facebook. We could pay for likes and promotion to get 10 times the number we have now, but what's the point when Granny from South FL is one of the resulting accounts you get from paying for them? We find it's better to put all of that time and energy into the original content you see here on our site and at our friends' sites. Oh, and we will ALWAYS remain committed to making our front page priority number one. Once again, thank you! We honestly like you just as much as you like us.... and even more. We guess we need to get up to speed with Twitter next, huh?

Found! TARGET Exclusive Poe Dameron/Riot Control Stormtrooper Hits!

Posted by Paul | October 19, 2015 at 08:17 AM ET |

JTA reader and TARGET employee Daniel M. writes in to let us know that the Poe Dameron/First Order Riot Control Stormtrooper two-pack has arrived at his store. You can find your own using DPCI 087-06-3696. This item hasn't been set yet, so your store likely won't have them available out on the floor. Courteously ask an employee to locate it for you. Oh, and this also confirms, as assumed, that this two-pack is indeed a TARGET exclusive.

For My Ally Is The Force. And A Powerful Ally It Is.

Posted by Paul | October 16, 2015 at 05:12 PM ET |

I had a pretty amazing conversation with a fellow collector in NY prior to the Hasbro 'Twas The Night Before Preview Party. But what made this talk particularly special was because this person lives across the globe and we speak different primary languages. Yet we were at the same place at the same time and shared similar frustrations, joys and general Star Wars themed "things". Besides, he possessed the same passion for collecting as me, especially when it comes to wanting to find Star Wars toys at the retail level. You just never know who you'll meet or what sort of impact you will have on his/her general Star Wars collecting needs. (more....)

Assault Walker

Today we are opening up a new Research Droids Reviews database, featuring miscellaneous reviews that don't quite fit into our main collectible-based database. We've worked hard to make this new database different enough from our Core database (this time with a bronze theme), yet similar enough so you can still follow along with the format that you are used to. This will act as a companion database, featuring (at first) reviews from both The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels television shows. We've gone in and back-filled all of Mike Taber's reviews from the final The Clone Wars season (The Lost Mission episodes) and the first Season of Star Wars Rebels. This should give you plenty to peruse as we get ready to start adding new episodes of Star Wars Rebels this week!

Also, starting very soon, Mike is going to go back and review the first 5 seasons of The Clone Wars, in chronological order (as defined by StarWars.com). This should be a fun way for everyone to revisit that awesome series! We will add these reviews during 'down time' when Star Wars Rebels is not airing.

TRU Exclusive First Order Snowtrooper Officer BACK IN STOCK!

Posted by Paul | October 12, 2015 at 08:24 AM ET |

Another new Star Wars film means another large vehicle in the toy line, doesn't it? Sadly, the Battle Action Millennium Falcon just doesn't deliver that or much else in anyway that's truly impressive, ESPECIALLY the price. And how sad is it that we think the best thing about this purchase is the BB-8 pack-in figure (yes it's completely different that the one you already have). See where this vehicle ranks with us in our Research Droids Reviews today!

JTA Exclusive: Hasbro And JTA Talk Shop - A Casual Conversation....

Posted by Paul | October 09, 2015 at 10:51 AM ET |

As usual, the annual ‘Twas The Night Before NYCC Preview Party was a blast. Hasbro entertained guests from around the globe at the beautiful Metropolitan Pavilion in NYC. The environment was relaxed and the discussions informal, which all worked together to make visitors feel comfortable enough to “geek out” with each other. Although Hasbro didn’t schedule any formal Q&A time with various sites for this event, Hasbro Marketing Director Joe Ninivaggi was kind enough to speak with JTA and answer some of those pressing general and broad questions that are driving us batty. This is a relaxed and informal summary of the talks that took place, not a word for word verbatim transcription. However, the final draft of this was approved by Hasbro per our request. (more....)

Review: Luke Skywalker - TBS [P3] - Walmart Exclusive

Posted by Paul | October 04, 2015 at 12:20 AM ET |

Hasbro certainly knows how to derail a brand new figure line with a terribly planned inaugural wave, don't they? Thankfully, The Black Series [Phase III] line seems to already be doing well despite a lackluster first wave of figures. One figure from wave 1 is worthy of a re-release like this in our opinion. And Luke Skywalker has never looked better. Find out more in our Research Droids Reviews today!
