In addition to a physical collar change (from white to black) on the TBS6 First Order Snowtrooper, it now appears that the figure also has a packaging variation. Matthew Z. from Louisville KY sends us the proof.

Despite conversations with Hasbro stating that this gigantic vehicle has sold well, it looks like Amazon has once again reduced this item to less than $96.00. Please keep in mind anything can change as far as its pricing is concerned, but if you're interested in this vehicle, then this may be the time to order one. Find the 6" Scale The Black Series First Order Special Forces TIE Fighter at the link below!
UPDATE: The price is already fluctuating!

Well, it's official (sort of)! The Captain Phasma, Han Solo (Starkiller Base) and Leia Organa figures that people are finding for as low as $3.00 each are being promoted as special "May The Fourth" releases along with a few other things. Walmart's PR team contacted us about this latest news. Click through for more!

If you still need it, Kylo Ren (Unmasked) from the Build A Weapon line is IN STOCK at Hasbro Toy Shop. Promo code APRILSHIP still works.

In case you missed our post earlier today on Facebook, Hasbro Toy Shop once again has Luke Skywalker and Kanan Jarrus in stock. No sign of Ahsoka sadly. Thanks to all who emailed us also about this restocking.

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.
Despite so many shipping notices going out for Kmart's exclusive TBS6 Rey (Starkiller Base) figure, we are also getting multiple emails from readers saying that Kmart has cancelled their orders. Let us know if you're getting the same memo please.

Today marks the 14th anniversary of the release of the Star Wars "Saga" line look. The line was launched April 23, 2002. The line went through three phases during its three year duration. It is distinct because it didn't call out Attack Of The Clones like the Episode I and Revenge Of The Sith lines called out their respective films. Reminisce some of the products released at this time in our Research Droids Reviews. Special thanks to JTA friend Darth Eddie for the reminder!

The latest developments on The Black Series [Phase III] 6" line have confirmed an earlier report that we provided you back a few weeks after Toy Fair this year. Check out the original report HERE.

It's likely that what has been released for waves 5 and 6 of The Black Series [Phase III] 6" lineup is it and we have also reached the end of this line look as well. Click through to see more information on this!

Star Wars toys were boosted by the December release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. “Retail and consumer demand for Star Wars remain very high,” said Goldner. “And at this early stage in the year, we continue to believe 2016 revenues could be in line with last year.” Special thanks to JTA friend Ayem Mayhem for alerting us to this news.

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!

Rey (Resistance Base) is IN STOCK at HasbroToyShop.com for $7.99 and will ship FREE using code APRILSHIP for orders of $25 or more.

Well, this is shocking. The TBS Ahsoka Tano is a mere $9.99 on Amazon as of this post. Bookmark all of these links for the latest The Black Series [Phase III] 6" line! Thanks to all of you who have emailed, texted and posted to Facebook about this!
It was too good to be true! Amazon is now sending out cancellation memos citing a pricing error on the seller's part!
JTA reader Darth Nihilus from Singapore Star Wars Fans Facebook page has found the new TBS 3.75" wave of Walmart exclusive figures and has emailed us an image of them. (At this point we're not even sure if they even are Walmart exclusives.) Click the image below to check it out.

Italian reader Andrea G. saw our post about The Black Series subscription collection making its way to his country. He has all the details to share with us. Click through for more.

More than two weeks ago, JTA reader Lando Plenty brought to the attention of the JTA community and Star Wars Collectors everywhere that it appeared Amazon is scalping itself. Now that two weeks have past it STILL appears as if the same trend is happening. Not a glitch in the system, the new "supply and demand" price pointing that is taking over so many online stores is not something any of us want to see when it comes to buying Star Wars figures. Join in on the discussion where you can interact with many other fans and collectors.

It's not an across-the-board markdown, but check your Walmart clearance sections and you might just get lucky. JTA reader CJ scored The Black Series 3.75" figures for $7 each at his local Walmart in Farmington, NM. Click through for his report!

You certainly remember our earlier post today about this Italian The Black Series collection, right? Well, the store that the post referred us to, the Gazzetta Store, has posted "proof" that The Black Series 3.75" Luke Skywalker (Episode VII) is coming!! It's due approximately December 2016! It looks like a "new" FO Stormtrooper may be coming as well. It has a similar release date!
There are "new" The Black Series 3.75" figures getting released in Italy called The Black Series 3D. We say "new" because of the complex packaging and grouping of figures. StarWarsFiguren.com alerts our attention to this new collection of 3.75" TBS action figures. Click through for the full report and be sure to check out images at StarWarsFiguren.com HERE.
UPDATE: The reference image of Mace Windu is actually a shrunken down Sideshow Collectibles 1:6 Scale Figure. Special thanks to JTA reader Marcus Tan Wei Wen for the confirmation.

Once again Hasbro's eBay Store has a pretty solid selection of figures to choose from with free shipping. The Black Series First Order Stormtrooper is on sale for $15.99. Also available for $19.99 are Captain Phasma, Han Solo, and Finn (FN-2187), to name a few. There's also plenty of Build A Weapon figures for $7.99. Check it all out here!
IN STOCK right now on Amazon for only $14.99 is Captain Phasma which has been for so long hard to find is now $14.99 on Amazon! (Amazon is even bragging that it's 81% off the $79.99 MSRP too!) THANK YOU JTA reader Michael W. for letting our viewers know!
UPDATE: Many other figures are on sale as well!
Rogue One packaging has been revealed! It will be interesting to see if this package change will coincide with what our rumor reports claim will be happening with The Black Series line look!

It's official. The next wave of Walmart exclusive 3.75" The Black Series [Phase III] figures has been confirmed! Foreign site Action Figuren 24 has the next wave up for pre-order and it includes Han Solo (Starkiller Base), Princess Leia (Formal Gown) and Captain Phasma! Special thanks to friend Handsome Costanza for directing us to this pre-order page!

These are all third party sellers (translation: the prices are offensive), but look at the results you get when you search "star wars vintage collection" at Sears.com. It's enough to make grown men cry. Hasbro, if you see this, please understand why this is such a powerful marketing strategy for you to take full advantage of for the 40th anniversary of Star Wars!
What's wrong with this picture. Here is your clue: this is a TARGET store. JTA reader Jaret T. sends us an interesting image. Learn more by clicking through!
If you still need Jango Fett, he is in stock at HasbroToyShop.com for $19.99. Special thanks to JTA readers Darren B. and James S. for the alerts!
