40th Anniversary Case Assortment Makes This Etailer Voice Opinions

Posted by Paul | February 20, 2017 at 09:22 PM ET |

Etailer Star Action Figures lets their opinion known about the 40th Anniversary case assortments. We are already seeing proof of this by what figures are selling out first on Hasbro Toy Shop and Amazon among many other sellers. Click through for the rant. We edited it for content. Full transcipt can be found HERE. It, at the very least, is a curious opinion of what small "mom and pop" shops can possibly experience with poor case assortments.

Hasbro Toy Shop Is Already Shipping 40th Anniversary Figures!

Posted by Paul | February 20, 2017 at 09:14 PM ET |

Thank you for all of the email notifications! We are receiving confirmation that Hasbro Toy Shop has begun to ship out the 40th Anniversary TBS6 figures already. That was fast!

We are still getting a lot of questions about the status of the 40th Anniversary 6" figures and their future availability, especially Darth Vader. We were told that all of the figures will be coming into the general "boxed" The Black Series 6" line later. So if you're worried about getting Darth Vader from the Early Bird kit, don't worry about it if you're passing on it.

Next Wave Of Walmart Figures: Not A Four-Pack

Posted by Paul | February 19, 2017 at 12:11 PM ET |

There have been questions about the next wave of Walmart exclusive 3.75" TBS figures. The file name was listed (by Hasbro) as a four-pack, but each figure has a unique SKU. This is not a single-packaged four-pack.

A Closer Look At The TBS6 Death Star Trooper

Posted by Paul | February 19, 2017 at 09:29 AM ET |

We asked Hasbro to bend down C-3PO so we could get a better look at the Death Star Trooper's uniform. Click image below to check him out. You may or may not have heard yet in the Hasbro Q&A, but the black uniform was something Lucasfilm, LTd. dictated. Lucasfilm, let Hasbro be! We need that gray uniform desperately.

TBS6 Princess Leia Organa: New Portrait INDEED!

Posted by Paul | February 18, 2017 at 09:00 PM ET |

Just as we had reported many moons ago (last summer), Hasbro confirmed today during the Toy Fair presentation that they went back to the drawing board with The Black Series [Phase III] Princess Leia Organa's portrait. We think she looks incredibly better. Hasbro also wanted to know how JTA knew about this. Sadly we wouldn't reveal our sources. Click below to see a closer image of this significantly updated head sculpt.

The Black Series 6" 40th Anniversary Carded Figures To Come Punched

Posted by Chuck | February 18, 2017 at 05:19 PM ET |

The 40th Anniversary 6-Inch figures will not come 'unpunched'. All Vintage-style carded figures are going to be pre-punched. This was confirmed by Hasbro's Joe Ninivaggi during our Q&A.

Update: There seems to be some confusion in our comments. These figures will not have a perferated punch in them for someone to 'punch' out. They will likely be factory punched. So, there will be no versions available that have a punch in them. We'll know for sure when we get our first orders (if it's die cut or actually punched).

For The Black Series 6" Collectors Only: Only Your Opinions Here

Posted by Paul | February 16, 2017 at 08:08 AM ET |

Now that 3.75" super-articulated fans have gotten out their frustrations, we wanted to provide a safe space (that is NOT sarcasm) for The Black Series 6" collectors to voice their opinions on the recently revealed "TBS6 TVC" Luke Skywalker: X-wing Fighter Pilot figure that appeared on the Star Wars Show. You won't be attacked and you won't be criticized at all. This is YOUR show. Some talking points we'd encourage are the following: Are you excited for mostly the same figures to be repackaged on a vintage Kenner inspired card back? Doe the vintage Kenner packaging resonate with you as a newbie collector? Do you even care what packaging looks like for these figures? Do you really think six inches warrants a $20 MSRP? It would be ideal if 3.75" fans don't jump into this discussion right away to adulterate the conversation. Honestly, let us know how this reveal sits with you as a 6" collector.

The cat is out of the bag thanks to the Star Wars Show. Vintage Kenner inspired The Black Series 6" figures will be coming on cards to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Star Wars (well, at least Luke Skywalker (X-wing Pilot) for now). If you read any of the comments when this news began to break, Hasbro may be in an interesting predicament. 3.75" collectors aren't interested and from what we've tallied so far, 6" collectors have no interest in buying the same figures repackaged in this vintage Kenner packaging (something that 3.75" SA collectors would have purchased tenfold). It's going to be an interesting 40th anniversary celebration. Hopefully it will all work out for the best.

We Upset Some People With The Original Post - Let's Retry This....

Posted by Paul | February 15, 2017 at 03:20 PM ET |

BREAKING NEWS folks! This is something to really be excited about as it's something the collecting community has wished Hasbro would make for years! Hasbro has JUST REVEALED via partner Yahoo News multiple new product announcements and they're going to make you feel the Force like you've never felt it before! The exciting Poe Dameron helmet from The Black Series line ($79.99) is coming and is sure to make decades old Star Wars collectors jump with infectious joy. Beautifully painted and full of electronic features, it's an item to be high on the list of Star Wars fans everywhere! And let's not forget two new role play weapons including the Nerf Glowstrike Stormtrooper Deluxe Blaster ($79.99) as well as the Bladebuilders Path of the Force Lightstaber ($49.99). You know you want more NERF! These are destined to be hits with young and old Star Wars fans alike and what's more is they come with wonderful price points and loads of play features. Who needs super-articulated action figures when you've got stuff like this?! Check out more HERE.

Yahoo News has a new Hasbro exclusive reveal. They've revealed the Hasbro.... yawn.... Poe Dameron helmet. We're assuming it's under The Black Series label. We don't know.... we didn't read the article. Check out more HERE. (News agencies are actually paying for these exclusive reveals?)

Quick Pics: Rogue One Jedha Revolt Multipack Loose Images!

Posted by Paul | February 12, 2017 at 01:13 PM ET |

JTA French reader Stephane H. has found the Jedha Revolt multipack at his local retail store. He has been gracious enough to snap some quick pics of the loose figures. Be sure to check them out! Saw looks pretty darn good.


Hasbro has decided to longer utilize the boy and girl descriptors for investor purposes. We wonder if this will transfer down further into the retail level. They say "Beginning with the first quarter, we will no longer report revenue along the Boys, Games, Girls and Preschool categories. Instead, we will provide a revenue breakdown of Franchise Brands, Partner Brands, Hasbro Gaming and Emerging Brands. We believe this is a more relevant and appropriate view of our business." More information and opinions on this can be found at The Mary Sue.

TBS Titanium Statuettes: This Is What The Line Has Boiled Down To?

Posted by Paul | February 09, 2017 at 12:50 PM ET |

Look closely at this image (it will enlarge when you click on it) as well as another bigger image in the comments. These figures just don't look good Hasbro. Your original Titanium Figures looked incredibly better than this. Either way, can someone please explain to me why we're getting this line to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Star Wars when all we want are the last couple of vintage figures needing modern counterparts? Or maybe a re-release of the original 12 in super-articulated glory? (Oh yeah, you're doing that in 6" supposedly.) And what about a few updates to figures like 2-1B, Yak Face, Squid Head, Bib Fortuna (and SO MANY more), etc.? Are we living in an alternate universe? Is this the Twilight Zone?
