Return to the Main Jedi Temple Archives Home Page


September 2016

Entertainment Earth has officially revealed their upcoming EXCLUSIVE The Black Series [Phase III] 6" Clone Trooper (Revenge Of The Sith) 4-Pack! This set includes first time offered versions of characters from Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith including the 501st Legion Clone Trooper (Vader's Fist), the 212th Attack Battalion Clone Trooper, the 442nd Siege Battalion Clone Trooper (from Cato Neimoidia) and the Imperial Shock Trooper. All four figures have amazing weathering detailing! It's Hasbro's best battle-damage deco yet. What's more, the figures come in a collector's box which folds up for easy storage. Execute Order 66! Build your armies and hunt down the Jedi Knights. You can pre-order this set RIGHT NOW! Click below for a high-resolution look at these figures!

Thank the Maker! Those of you who love screen accurate astromech droids will be thrilled to know that the R5-D4 lookalike droid (Part of the new Rogue One Disney Droid Factory 4-Pack) has the RED PANELS painted on its back just like the real onscreen R5-D4 prop. If you recall, the only screen accurate 3.75" R5-D4 figure we ever received from Hasbro was the remote control version from 2008 in The Legacy Collection. If you own The Vintage Collection figure, you can switch out this body with the one you have and have a screen accurate R5-D4 figure (within reason of course – we are sure some details may have been overlooked). Great job Disney! Photo courtesy of dkmb2008 via JTA reader Mario M.

Why Certain SA 3.75" Figures Need Widespread Distribution

Posted by Paul | September 30, 2016 at 02:29 PM ET |

It's America. Everyone is entitled to sell toys on the aftermarket, but we believe that this is case and proof of why Hasbro needs to release solid case packs of certain figures. The Emperor's Royal Guard, for the 2nd time available officially at retail, is once again becoming the most sought after figure for the entire Rogue One product launch on eBay! These should be cluttering pegs by this point. And there are more collectors than I can count who are looking for this figure as we speak. Me included. Hopefully more are on the way. Walmart's PRESS RELEASE actually have these listed with November/December availability, so hopefully a ton more are on the way. But all I saw were Poe Dameron, Han Solo and about a bazillion Finns. It would be divine to see a bazallion ERGs instead.

TBS6 Rogue One Wave 2 Hits Japan

Posted by Paul | September 29, 2016 at 05:35 PM ET |

It looks like wave 2 of Rogue One has hit Japan! This image is floating around somewhere socially..

JTA has learned that the possibility exists that we could see a new Big Massive and Freaking huge vehicle coming into the toy line. It supposedly won't be available for Rogue Friday, but we also learned that its MSRP is likely hanging in the MSRP ball-park of the controversial AT-ACT vehicle, a vehicle that is being offered by Hasbro! As with all rumors and hearsay, take it with a grain of salt until confirmed or denied by the licensee. To remain as non-specific as possible, we're afraid we cannot offer any more information at this point.

It's time to have a closer look at the upcoming Entertainment Earth Astromech Droid Pack, today's featured Visual Guide! We posted a complete First Look at this set last Friday to our viewers, with a detailed full gallery and review. Today we break this set down for our Visual Guides. A big thanks to Entertainment Earth for providing this early review sample so our viewers can see this set up close before they buy it.

You can still pre-order this set at Entertainment Earth right now!

Posted by Chuck | September 18, 2016 at 07:33 PM ET |

The Star Wars [Shadow of the Dark Side] Saga Legends Visual Guides continue tonight, this time featuring R2-D2 (SL14). Get all the details on this figure in our Visual Guide below, and check out our thoughts on this re-release in our full review right here.

R2-D2 (SL14) - Saga Legends - SW [SOTDS]

The folks at IGN have cited Hasbro's upcoming AT-ACT as a "case and point example" of what's wrong with the Hasbro Star Wars line today, and give many examples of why it is anything but a product for the average consumer. While their overview about past AT-AT vehicles is strewn with one error after another (they misrepresented what vehicle was new, what was a repaint and have no clue what figures actually came inside of the boxes - – they should be referring to our Collector Notes for specifics), they nonetheless make excellent points about what has to change in the Star Wars line.... starting with the $299.99 MSRP.

Google Hangout Hasbro Q&A Confirms More JTA Rumor Reports

Posted by Paul | September 17, 2016 at 03:48 PM ET |

A few of our friends from across the web participated in a Google Hangout Q&A with Hasbro. As usual, quite a few questions were asked at this session that were the basis of quite a few of JTA's very own exclusive rumor reports, like the smaller line launch and smaller footprint Rogue One will have at retail (among others). In a nutshell, Hasbro confirms most of what we had reported throughout the year so far. But there are a few new pieces of information as well. The Vintage Collection topic also came up again (no real surprise) and while Hasbro didn't confirm details, they alluded to something that gave this fan a little more hope that good news is on the horizon. Check out the report at Jedi News.

Rogue One Gets A New Composer

Posted by Mike_Taber | September 16, 2016 at 08:53 AM ET |

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Michael Giacchino (Lost, Up, Star Trek) has replaced Alexander Desplat as the composer for Rogue One.  The reason for Desplat's departure? That would be those inescapable reshoots. The extensive reshoots Rogue One went through created a scheduling conflict for Desplat and he was forced to drop out. Enter Michael Giacchino. Giacchino has frequently worked for Disney in the past scoring five Pixar movies, Zootopia, and the upcoming Doctor Strange movie among others. It's still strange and nerve-racking to think that someone besides John Williams will be scoring a Star Wars movie, but Giacchino seems like a natural fit.

TBS/TNT Secure Exclusive TV Rights To Star Wars Films

Posted by Mike_Taber | September 14, 2016 at 08:18 PM ET |

Turner has struck a massive deal with Disney for the basic cable rights to 10 Star Wars films. The deal includes four unreleased Star Wars films (most likely Rogue One, Episodes 8 and 9, and the Han Solo movie). They have also reached a separate agreement with 20th Century Fox for the original Star Wars. The Star Wars films have been out of circulation on basic cable since a licensing agreement with Spike TV expired in 2014.  The original and prequel trilogies will begin airing on TNT as early as September 20th. Head over to Variety for the full story!

JTA reader Julien ALSO sends us closer images of the Emperor's Royal Guard. Hasbro has definitely used a different material for the soft-goods this time. The woolen look of The Vintage Collection version is gone and now it appears as if we're getting a thinner fabric with a harder drape (which is also good for a figure like this).

What Would You Pay For The Black Series 6" Figures Done Right?

Posted by Paul | September 12, 2016 at 10:49 AM ET |

We're all tired of hearing how things just aren't cost effective anymore. We have a 6" line because a "more for your money" approach translated loudly and clearly with new collectors while classic collectors are seemingly willing to pay almost the same price for the classic 3.75" scale. That's another story however. But in this new era of collecting, The Black Series 6" line has taken a steep nosedive when it comes to level of quality that Hasbro is producing. The first wave of TBS6 figures in 2013 appeared to be right on the money (save for a few crinkles here and there – R2-D2 comes to mind). The sculpts were great, the plastic was solid (and not wiggly wobbly) and the paint operations, albeit far from perfect, were pretty darn good. Oh, and let's not forget the nice amount of accessories that graced these figures. We've all seen the A New Hope Princess Leia. Why it took a mob to help Hasbro realize she just wasn't ready for release is beyond us, but she is finally on the mend thank the Maker. (more....)

The Black Series Ahsoka Tano 6 Inch figure is $21.99 and IN STOCK on Amazon right now. Get her while you can! Special thanks to all who alerted us!

Although the news is out in the "real world," we've been reluctant to post this development because of the reactions to past similar articles we posted, like when we "unnecessarily panicked the Star Wars collecting community and made a story out of nothing" regarding the launch of Rebels wave 1 figures (also known as Rebelsgate). That was a direct quote on our Twitter page by the way. Spoiler alert: the Rebels wave 1 stuff, aside from a few initial shipments, never came. Now a new shipping dilemma has arisen it seems, just in time for the launch of Rogue Friday (hopefully most of the products are currently in back rooms – but who knows how it wil affect future waves if at all). Hanjin Shipping, a commercial shipping/freighter source from Asia (Korea) that the US relies on, has gone belly up. Not only has their services ceased, but their shipments including food and other commodities are just floating on the water and blocking other incoming freighters from entering the ports in the USA. While they are sourced from Korea, they are adding a crazy bottleneck for other vendors' goods. Could we see a repeat of Rebelsgate? Whats more, experts are assuming this will have a major impact on the cost of the those goods we seek. Reuters has the full story.

Decent eBay Auctions For The Clone Wars/Legacy/Shadow Of The Dark Side

Posted by Paul | September 08, 2016 at 11:15 AM ET |

There is an eBay seller (new to me) that I have personally dealt with recently that I wanted to recommend. If you're looking for some of The Clone Wars [Shadow of The Dark Side], The Clone Wars [red] and Saga Legends (both Legacy Collection and Shadow Of The Dark Side) figures, I would recommend wet_pet_books_and_collectibles. His shipping price is alarming at first, but he credits back EVERY last cent that wasn't used for shipping costs. And of course he combines shipping costs for even better deals on multiple items. I can attest to this first hand. Also, prices are higher, but most of his auctions are 40% off at the moment. He also has some other stuff under a different company name (also on eBay) called bk_trading_company. Be sure to check him out if you're looking for any of this stuff! His packaging methods are amazing too and the products arrived perfectly mint.
