Posted by Paul | April 15, 2014 at 08:51 PM EDT |

What more can go wrong? Well, maybe this isn't so bad for JTA reader Gary H., but it's not a great testament to the health of the Star Wars brands or a good sign that retail has a remote clue of what's going on anymore. Click through for this unbelievable retail experience.

Despite the "anything but scintillating" recent drama surrounding The Black Series 6" Stormtrooper, we are still getting reports from readers that they are finding this figure locally. Interestingly, this is the second closest TRU to my own personal residence. So stay away lord varion! Click through for his success story!

Well Painted 5POAs May Be The New Valuable Chase Figures, Folks!

Posted by Paul | April 10, 2014 at 08:54 PM EDT |

It's almost next to never that I see new figures in my area, but I was a little surprised to see the latest Saga Legends figures in stock at my local TARGET. From the same exact case, both Boba Fett and the Stormtrooper had horrid paint operations. I know this is no surprise, but for goodness sake, when will Hasbro tighten up the quality issues? Boba Fett had a big green space where the paint didn't reach and the Stormtrooper's right eye was dripping off the side of his face. Remember, these came from the same exact case. I didn't even bother to look at Cody and Rex because I lost interest quite quickly. Check out the mess!

Yeah. That EE Exclusive Idea We Made Up? It Won't Happen....

Posted by Paul | April 03, 2014 at 08:06 AM EDT |

I have received MULTIPLE emails and comments asking why the comment thread wasn't open for the "possible EE exclusive poll" article and the reason is that I was looking for number data only. From the results so far, I am quite shocked by all of the "NO!" answers. Who is voting that way? 20-somethings who grew up with The Clone Wars? (That's the sarcastic Paul speaking, don't take offense.) Anyway, here you go. Use this article to support or blast the idea. An "angry" Adam Pawlus already reached out to me because apparently our little article stunt created an influx of unnecessary calls to Entertainment Earth with fans trying to pre-order our nonexistent concept (sorry EE, please don't deactivate us - but maybe people want this?). I am also left with the answer that this is something that can never happen due to costs. (I am really sick to death of that answer. Gee - I wonder how the final wave of TVC became an online exclusive and was successful beyond expectations?) Sure Hasbro: Waste resources for The Rise Of Darth Vader multipack and The Birth Of Darth Vader multipack, but something in vintage-styled packaging can't be done due to cost? Give me a break. Anyway, let off your steam in our comments. And thank you to all who supported our poll, even though the voting results only reflect about 15% of the people who read the article so far....

The Star Wars exclusives at Entertainment Earth haven't been all that exciting in recent memory. But there are some great possibilities that would cost Hasbro very little money while appealing to the adult collector facet of buyers. (You know, Hasbro, the collectors with $$$). Let me pose a question to our viewing audience. Would you buy the proposed The Vintage Collection exclusive? Click through for more.

Nine years ago tonight, many of us were at Toys R Us waiting for midnight jumping up and down in line ready to get our paws on the latest Hasbro Star Wars merchandise for what we thought would be the final Star Wars film (ever). Nine years ago! Why does time travel at lightspeed the older we get? Recount what you did on this day nine years ago with us in our comments. Share your funniest stories, or maybe just discuss what your anticipation was like for the final film in the Prequel Trilogy. Special thanks to Darth Eddie for the anniversary reminder and the article idea. Click through for more and to join in the discussion.

Star Wars Accessories: Back To The Future Style

Posted by Paul | March 29, 2014 at 07:40 PM EDT |

I have to say that I am flabbergasted by the hits, the comments, and the overall response to the 2002 Star Wars "Saga" TARGET exclusive Accessory Sets in the RDRs over the last couple of days. You would think that we were reviewing new figures or something. (I actually thought they were a little bit boring myself honestly.) Anyway, with special thanks to JTA reader and commenter Kraig M. for pointing this out, I have shot two images of The Black Series 6" Stormtrooper next to the Mouse Droid that comes with the Death Star Accessory Set. Although much too big for the 3.75" line, Kraig commented that it may be in scale with the 6" line. It can certainly be said that if this is true that these accessories, although "anachronistic" in 2002, were really ahead of their time. I am inclined to agree with him. But what do you think?
