Bastila Shan (TBS #20) is available for pre-order (with a ship date just days away) for $10.99. Click here to secure this figure! Thanks to JTA reader Michael for the heads up that this is back in stock.
Here you go! Get ready for some more non-answers again! I also don't know how I let so many Episode VII questions get by me. We ALL should know those answers by now: HASBRO CANNOT ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT EPISODE VII. So we are NEVER going to ask them again, OK? They're on the "no no" list going forward. Whoever did ask will be banned from JTA. (Just kidding.) We do however get some cool info out of Hasbro which may be of some benefit to you, so be sure to click through for more!

Worried about missing him on HasbroToyShop this year? RobotKingdom.com has the Jabba's Throne SDCC exclusive up for pre-order for an acceptable $79.90. The issue? The shipping. I tested an order for myself and it came to $40. But if you can't take the risk of missing out from HTS, then you may want to order it now so you don't lose out on it. Limit of one per person and they aren't guaranteeing any mint pieces.

Amazon has just opened pre-orders for the final wave of The Black Series Phase I! Still no Wedge Antilles...
At Toy Fair this year we reported that although Hasbro showed R5-G19 with a Build A Droid sculpt that the final release would be an all-new figure. We can unequivocally confirm to you today that the final release will indeed sport the Build A Droid sculpt. It will NOT be an all-new figure as Hasbro first indicated to us. This will elate some and disappoint others, but it gives us greater hope that the rumored C-3PO The Black Series 3.75" figure may also likely sport the Build A Droid sculpt too. We'll all find that out that tidbit later today.
The Black Series 6" Prototype Boba Fett IS NOW SOLD OUT at Walgreens.com! We hope you got your orders in on time! Who knows? Maybe they'll come back in stock again soon.
Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS) is coming back to Comic-Con International in San Diego to celebrate its iconic and globally renowned brands including TRANSFORMERS, MY LITTLE PONY, MY LITTLE PONY EQUESTRIA GIRLS, KRE-O, and licensed toy and game lines for ANGRY BIRDS, MARVEL, and STAR WARS. From toys and games, to comics, television programs and Hollywood blockbuster films, Hasbro continues to entertain kids and fans around the globe with its world-class portfolio of brands year after year. Hasbro will bring its iconic brands and characters to life at this yearâ€™s convention, offering an exciting lineup of panels, autograph sessions, special edition toys, giveaways and more. (more....)
Site Mentalfloss.com has a fascinating article on how Hasbro made the 2014 SDCC exclusive Jabba's Throne set. It's worth reading. Anyway, you need something to read until the latest news breaks.

If you're the least bit in doubt to what a tragic concept the Toys R Us exclusive TBS6 Cantina Showdown is, then click through for an image that will likely give you quite a chuckle! It's amazing that anyone fell for this bridge. JTA reader Richard via Yakface.com's Facebook page has posted this in our comments in another article, but it was worthy of front page publishing. Grab a bottle, hunker down, and pray for daylight, because this is a complete travesty. Let's keep the drama unfolding! (more....)

Hurry! The Black Series 6" Prototype Boba Fett IS NOW AVAILABLE to pre-order at Walgreens.com! Special thanks to JTA readers Mauricio M. and Travis H. for the alerts!
UPDATE: Many readers ordering from their smart phones are having difficulty placing orders. Readers using laptops or PCs are having no difficulty whatsoever.
Our friends at Rebelscum.com have posted a first look gallery at the Hasbro booth. While most of the stuff has already been revealed as far back as Toy Fair, their images also provide proof of many of JTA's original rumor reports like Darth Malgus and Starkiller TVC carry-forwards among other things. Check back tomorrow HERE at JTA as we have our own team on the floor to hopefully get us earlly sneak peeks at the good stuff!

You submitted the questions and then voted for your top picks. Now we have compiled the top 25 questions to ask Hasbro as San Diego Comic Con this year. Please know that we will make a concerted effort to get all of these asked, but there have been tremendous shake-ups internally at Hasbro and there won't be a strong presence of reps to answer questions like in years' past. (Usually we have been able to talk with them at length in the past but this year they're running a tighter ship.) So please be patient with us as we try to scour for all the answers your hearts are seeking. In the meantime, click through to see if your question made the cut. Questions have been ranked by popularity. And if you see these questions and/or answers anywhere else, you know where they originated! Also, please feel free to start up a new discussion about your anticipation this year!
As seen on the report by our friends at BanthaSkull.com, it looks like we have some sort of image of what's upcoming on some stores plan-o-grams in the very near future. This look to be 087-06-0910 Star Wars: Rebels blasters asst (2) from their list! Click through for more!

Darth Plagueis is still being found at retail! Oh the madness! See JTA reader Aarren A.'s nearly amazing store report!!

Stephen Hayford has posted an image on his Facebook page which reveals the first card Luke Skywalker (Wampa Attack) figure in the new blue "TIE Fighter Pilot" TBS line look. It's hard to see, but it's definitely there!!
Posted by Paul | July 17, 2014 at 09:51 PM EDT |
Many collectors are still looking for the Snowtrooper, Luke Skywalker (Jedi), et. al from the Saga Legends line. It's shocking to say the least. Remember when Hasbro told me at multiple media events that The Vintage Collection "greatest hits' waves had indeed gotten out yet none of us could find one figure from these so-called waves at retail, especially wave 14 (as well as others)? Well, either denial or complete confusion seem to be their tools of choice. JTA reader Daniel D., desperate to locate the third wave of Saga Legends, contacted Hasbro customer service and after a length investigation period, came back with an answer that essentially slapped him in the face. Are you ready? Then click through!

It's been on eBay for weeks now so you have had plenty of first looks at it, but if you haven't yet seen a better look at the SDCC exclusive The Black Series's Jabba's Throne set, be sure to check it out on eBay.

Our friends at StarWarsFiguren reveal carded images of new Star Wars: Rebels figures with a whole lot less obnoxious watermarking. This line includes figures based on the upcoming television show as well as the figures that make up the Saga Legends line. Enjoy. You can also find The Black Series carded pictures HERE and HERE too.
UPDATE: Our friends at Rebelscum.com have great high resolution un-watermarked images. Check them out!

From JTA reader Alexander G.: Paul, a brand new Walmart opened in downtown Honolulu last week. I finally checked it out today, the Star Wars section was amazing. Enjoy! Alexander. Click through to see the pure blissful joy!

It's time to submit your questions to JTA so we can ask them to Hasbro for you this year at SDCC. Because SDCC is only a few weeks away, please be sure to click through and follow the rules. I have to be mean here for a moment and explain to you that your comments/questions will be deleted if you are unable to follow the directions, so FAIR WARNING. Sorry to be a drill sergeant here, but time is of the essence and we need you to help us keep this organized. JTA friend and affiliate Rich Alot will be at the event to take care of this part of the convention, and we need to make his life as easy as possible.... because there will be a lot (no pun intended) going on there. (more....)

Let the pile ups begin! Found! The awful The Black Series 6" Cantina Showdown Toys R Us exclusive has been found in Canada. The report can be found at www.echobase.ca. Special thanks to JTA reader and friend Derek R. for the alert!

For anyone who might be confused about the latest Star Wars: Rebels figure images now showing up carded, we'd like to remind you that our friends at Sandtroopers.com (i.e. Dan Curto) were the first to break the news on all of them all the way back in May of this year (complete with visuals). See the original report here. Hasbro solicitation images of previously revealed products provided early by sponsors covered in watermarks is hardly breaking or investigative news.
What we now believe to be first rumored by JTA in our Crystal Ball report and confirmed by our friends at Rebelscum.com, Hasbro releases the official press announcement for the upcoming Hero Series Millennium Falcon. It is likely this was the BMF tease from our Crystal Ball rumor report which we broke first right after Toy Fair. Click through for the details!
Posted by Paul | July 14, 2014 at 09:27 PM EDT |
Please take this rumor with another grain of salt, but we have received notice that the upcoming C-3PO on our most recent The Black Series rumor report may just be a figure that utilizes the U-3PO (Build A Droid) sculpt. We are desperately working to corroborate this new information and if we learn more we will confirm it immediately. (Special thanks to Mike Sidious via Rebelscum.com's forums for the image.)

You think you can run the Star Wars brand better? Hasbro is hiring for a Global Brand Development Manager for the Star Wars brand. Click through for more!

It appears the floodgates are opening! OK, this continues the "need new underwear" state of collecting! Most are from rumor reports first published from JTA, but Stan from the Rebelscum forums has "confirmed' them as coming, or teased that they're coming and leaked a few new others as well. And it will make you SICK that The Vintage Collection isn't active right now! Anyway, take it with a grain of salt until blah, blah, blah. MORE TO BE REVEALED at SDCC! Click through for the latest!
UPDATE: Stan adds Imperial Gunner and Yak Face to his list â€“ both originally announced in rumor reports exclusively from Jedi Temple Archives too!

Well, it appears as if our own gag order was lifted and even if it wasn't we're posting this anyway. Please know that complete details are still sketchy at this point, but now we have some character names to release to our readers. What follows apppars to be a full list of 18 figures that make up the first Fall wave of The Black Series (phase II) where Hasbro will release solid cases of these characters. This of course now differs from some of the information we received earlier. It now appears that the list revealed by JTA sponsor Dorkside Toys does indeed make up some of the 18. So we really don't know if there are even MORE action figures coming that aren't part of this full solid case batch. (At least that's the way we have understood this.) PLEASE TAKE THIS LIST and the DETAILS SURROUNDING it with a grain of salt until we hear it from Hasbro as SDCC very soon. Anyhow, click through and get ready to DROOL!
UPDATE: Crud. We had no idea our friends at BanthaSkull.com posted these rumors before us, although each of our reports is from independent sources. And differences exist between both including the fact that our report has one more figure listed, so be sure to read both. Anyhow, apologies friends. (They will make you work whole lot harder guessing who the characters are than we do. Ha!)

Hasbro has released images and information of the SDCC exclusive The Black Series 6" Jabba The Hutt's Throne set including where non-attendees might be able to secure one. Click through for the details.
Online retailer Andrew's Toys has posted new boxed pics of the next wave of TBS6. We shared them on our own Facebook page for you to see. Check them out! We really hope that isn't the new MSRP and that they're just charging more than the MSRP, because it's becoming a little ridiculous now. Sorry about the obnoxious watermarking too.
