Did You Have A Star Wars Centered Black Friday Weekend?

Posted by Paul | November 28, 2015 at 06:25 PM EST |

We hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and entertaining Black Friday! We're curious to know how you made on on your toys runs this weekend. Did you see your local Big Box brick and mortar stores stocked with the latest (or any) The Force Awakens toys? Is what Hasbro's CEO asserting coming true in your areas? Are The Force Awakens toys (the bread and butter – action figures) getting positioned well enough where it looks like there is a new Star Wars movie coming? We can say that this is NOT happening in our neck of the woods. Aside from one single TARGET store showing remnants of the PZ-4CO wave, pegs in my travels through PA and upstate NY yielded nothing but bare pegs and lots of Finns, Chewbaccas and Resistance Troopers. Hopefully you've had more success.

Unidentified Hasbro Multipacks Now Showing Up At Toys R Us

Posted by Paul | November 24, 2015 at 05:56 PM EST |

JTA reader Logan P. sends us proof that the unannounced and unknown movie themed multipacks have arrived in the USA, and may presumably be a TRU exclusives in this market. And they're just what we didn't need. I think you can still get the Digital Sets on Hasbro's eBay store for clearance prices. These are essentially the same exact thing.

UPDATE: Logan confirmed these are TRU exclusives. Poor TRU. They've been sold another bridge....

Delayed Amazon Exclusive 7-Pack Hits Singapore

Posted by Paul | November 18, 2015 at 08:08 AM EST |

Site has sent us an image to post of the delayed Amazon exclusive to share with everyone. This has been found in Singapore now, so it's likely we could see our pre-orders get filled in the near future from Amazon.

Well, it was only a matter of time before the news of poor Star Wars inventory at brick and mortar would make its way out there a whole lot more frequently. As you recall, we reported this news from our sources just a few short days ago. A simple Google search will also show you just how serious this is. Channel 10 news in San Diego have even ran a news story on it tonight. The bottom line is that The Force Awakens inventory is just not what it should be and it is looking more and more like it won't meet demand this holiday season. The forecasting was way off this time. And as we all know, Hasbro never does too well playing catch up. As we mentioned recently, if you see something, don't think it is going to be there tomorrow.

Kmart Exclusive Kylo Ren In Stock, On Sale And Shipping!

Posted by Paul | November 14, 2015 at 03:26 PM EST |

The Kmart exclusive Kylo Ren (Starkiller Base) is back in stock and our readers are receiving shipping notices. It's also on sale for $19.99. Special thanks to all that wrote in to us via email and our Facebook page including Casey M., Joshua L., Matt C., Max P. and others.

Back in August, we provided a rumor report to you about recent The Black Series figures we learned had been finished up and would likely be prepared for release very soon. Two of them included Luke Skywalker (Trash Compactor) and Han Solo (Trash Compactor). As with all rumor reports revealed that far in advance, the finest of details aren't as clear and we believed that they would be 3.75" versions. But it looks like our friends at have provided some of that clarity today as these characters are likely coming in 6" scale instead (silly us)! In another development, they hint that action figure stands might be returning as well! Check out this great news!

Would Hasbro have been better off offering a modern Early Bird Figures “empty box” for the holidays this year? Some of our closest sources are suggesting this wouldn’t have been a bad idea. No matter if you’re finding Star Wars action figures in stores or not, one thing is for sure: they’re extremely difficult to find. (more....)

It's A Pre-Christmas Phasma Fiasco!

Posted by Paul | November 05, 2015 at 09:17 PM EST |

If you've been fortunate to lock down The Black Series [Phase III] Captain Phasma 6" figure from, you may be in for a rude awakening when you get your figures Click the images below to see what we mean. Also, if you successfully placed an order, readers of ours are also getting cancellation notices despite successfully placing orders for this same dang figure. Time for solid case packs Hasbro. How much longer do we have to go through this ridiculousness? Special thanks to JTA reader Toy Fiend and others for the news and images.

Build A Weapon Captain Phasma Super Cheap At!

Posted by Paul | November 01, 2015 at 04:30 PM EST | is charging a mere $22.99 for the Build A Weapon Captain Phasma action figure. Perhaps they caught on to how popular she is.
