Litzky Public Relations, the new PR firm for Hasbro, directly reached out to us to clarify the Star Wars presence this year at Toy Fair.

Hasbro Doesn't Set The Prices, So Walmart Will Rollforward!

Posted by Paul | February 03, 2016 at 08:21 AM EST |

We told you that Walmart was the worst retailer to get an online or brick and mortar exclusive collector line. We even told Hasbro the same thing. Despite Hasbro assuaging us that Walmart knew what they had in this exclusive line and were ready to take it on full throttle, we don't see the fruits of any labors paying off now. Many of our reader have yet to see this line at all, and many others haven't see anything past wave 1. Now that new figures are arriving in select stores and online, people are taking advantage of the line's scarcity... including WALMART! Now, we know that third party sellers are scalping these figures right under Walmart's nose (on the same product page), but it seems that Walmart doesn't want to miss any of this action and have now upped the prices of their own exclusive line as high as threefold on some figures. This is what WALMART was selling Rey for a few hours ago (prices fluctuate all the time). This isn't a third party seller. Will this never end? Thanks to the many of you who wrote in upset about this.

Rogue One Product Will Probably Be Shown By Hasbro At Toy Fair

Our Recent TBS6 Rumor Reports Reveal Future Rogue One Figures?

Posted by Paul | February 01, 2016 at 08:37 AM EST |

Remember our recent BREAKING NEWS reports (HERE and HERE) on upcoming The Black Series figures and how there was a portion on each that had code names? SPOILER WARNING! has posted "code names" for characters in Rogue One and they match almost word for word what our rumor list has provided. It looks as if these "ambiguously named" future TBS6 figures are indeed from Rogue One! It will be interesting to see how all this changes since Rogue One was pushed out until the end of the year. Special thanks to JTA friend Adam H. for directing our attention to this article! We also now don't expect Hasbro to talk much or acknowledge these figures at Toy Fair this year.

Hurry! The $29.99 Entertainment Earth exclusive Assault Walker is now $15.95 with FREE prime shipping on Amazon!! Special thanks to JTA reader rivesjunctionite for the alert!

UPDATE: Third party sellers have it for as low as $7.98 but you have to pay shipping costs, still cheaper than the main Amazon price.

UPDATE: Sold out!

Dang it! JTA Facebook follower Luis Anthony R. sent us images on Tuesday of the new Kylo Revealed Build A Weapon figure. Check out the images he sent us. He neatly reveals that the new head sculpt works well with the super-articulated body. Sorry folks, we just don't do social media all that often to keep up with it. We're old school.

TBS Six Inch Wave 5 Found In Tennessee

Posted by Chuck | January 30, 2016 at 10:15 AM EST |

Wave 5 continues to land on store shelves, this time found by JTA reader Michael B in Tennessee.

I've been stalking a Walmart in the Coolsprings Area of Middle TN after my gym session for about 2 months waiting for wave 5 to come in. I was super excited to walk in tonight and find the shelf completely packed and for them to have 3 more full cases left on the pallet.  They also had boxes of 3.75 figures but they were not on the shelf yet.  I snagged a Jango, 2 Flametroopers and a Phasma.  Looks like the distribution problem may be ending.  

Well, I don't know about the distribution problem ending, but this is definitely a positive find!


IN STOCK! TBS6 Phasma and Flametrooper On Amazon!

Posted by Chuck | January 30, 2016 at 08:12 AM EST |

THANK YOU JTA reader Mike R. for letting our viewers know!


Retail Flow Planning Manager Position Open At Hasbro

Posted by Paul | January 28, 2016 at 02:37 PM EST |

I don't mean to smirk. It's certainly easy to shoot a sitting duck. But this may be a [big] piece of the puzzle to why distribution is in a terribly dreadful state. With special thanks to JTA reader DN for drawing our attention to it, we discovered a job posting (from January 12th) for a Flow Planning Manager (US Planning). Guess what this position does? Click through for more.

The latest TBS6 figures have hit in the form of new video reviews! Check them out! Special thanks to all who wrote in to let us know about these! Warning: adult content and language exists in the videos. A simple "muting" of the video volume will resolve this. We certainly don't want to be your Moral Majority but please watch cautiously. Why "jerks" like this need to trash up Star Wars is beyond me.


The Force Awakens Han Solo E7 Build A Weapon Figure On Amazon!

Posted by Paul | January 26, 2016 at 08:42 PM EST |

Hurry! Han Solo is available to order from Amazon for $7.99 Prime eligible!

Whenever someone reaches out to Hasbro customer service, he or she should just prepare himself/herself to receive a canned response. That is what customer service reps are trained to do. One of our readers, who has asked to remain anonymous, reached out to them frustrated over not being able to find any Star Wars figures in his area. Keep in mid that this reader is an active toy runner and checks daily for stuff. So what do you do when you get a response like this? Hasbro also states that more products are due this month. We'll see. We'll see. They also confirm that it could take "several months" for any of us to see products. I don't know if I can even believe that. I mean, those Walmart exclusive TBS 3.75" figures STILL have yet to go on pre-order... Click through for more.

Ezra Bridger's Speeder On Amazon (The Force Awakens Line Look)

Posted by Chuck | January 25, 2016 at 09:41 AM EST |

This won't last long! JTA reader Maurice just sent us this find on Amazon: Ezra Bridger's Speeder... Thanks Maurice!

The Ezra briger and his speeder bike is now up on Amazon. The Ezra also seems to have the new pouches on the side of his legs which is accurate to his season 2 look.

You May Not See The TBS6 Asty X-wing Pilot Wave Until June....

Posted by Paul | January 23, 2016 at 04:52 PM EST |

Do you want to hear something unbelievable? While scouring through the many pages on Entertainment Earth hoping to find the TBS6 Asty X-wing Pilot wave in stock, I was shocked to see it has an availability date of June 2016. JUNE 2016! That is unreal. How few did Hasbro initially produce? These were due in healthy numbers in December and most of us haven't even seen this wave hit once! Merchandising for Rogue One will be in full focus by the time these come around.... unless they're not doing anything special for the film as far as line looks are concerned.

TBS6 Listing For Tertiary Hero Droid Is Likely C-3PO With Red Arm

Posted by Paul | January 22, 2016 at 10:17 PM EST |

If you saw our BREAKING NEWS report a couple of days ago now, you saw three characters that have been ambiguously named by Hasbro to secure secrecy surrounding The Force Awakens. Obviously, the time has passed where this is no longer necessary, but that doesn't mean the listings have been updated. JTA reader Mike R. did some research of his own and came across THIS foreign web page for a 44 cm C-3PO electronic figure. It denotes C-3PO (with red arm from TFA) as Tertiary Hero Droid. It may be a safe bet to assume that this "ambiguously named" Tertiary Hero Droid in our "rumor report" is actually the recently revealed TBS6 C-3PO figure (from Hasbro's Twitter account)! We will continue to follow this story and update you with any new developments on the others.

The latest Armor Up figures are available on Amazon. These are not prime eligible, so there is shipping costs involved in case you want to wait a little longer for Amazon to get their stock. Click below to check them out! There's not many left listed as in stock, so hurry!


BREAKING NEWS! Even MORE Forthcoming Black Series 6 Inch

Posted by Paul | January 21, 2016 at 09:27 AM EST |

We have some exciting scoop to reveal! We have seen conclusive proof that these are on tap for release, and it is our personal estimate that these figures will make up the next couple of waves of The Black Series [Phase III] 6" figures. However, plans can often change and their exact availability is unknown. Surely we'll hear more about these at NY Toy Fair in February. As with anything we report, it's always safer to take the news as a rumor until it is fully confirmed by Hasbro. There are some pretty cool new listings here as well as some better indication of when the Fans' Choice winners have been slotted. (Their reveals here should show us that they're closer than further at this point.) Are you interested to see what's coming? Then click through for more!

If you still need these, The Black Series [Phase III] wave 3 is listed IN STOCK! Click below for direct links to the Resistance Trooper (10) and First Order TIE Fighter Pilot (11).

Posted by Chuck | January 20, 2016 at 08:57 AM EST |

Here's an interesting find by JTA reader Rivesjunctionite... a Kylo Ren playcase. While made for Micro Machines, it can probably serve other storage purposes as well. Click through to have a look! Looks like there are only a few of these listed as in stock at this time.

Déjà Vintage Collection?

Posted by Paul | January 15, 2016 at 10:48 PM EST |

Those who know me best are quite aware of my spontaneous utterances. I feel this post may come across as one. Please know that there is no rhyme or reason to posting this, but rather just an observation I made and it made me wonder if anyone else was noticing the same thing. So let me begin. At the end of 2010, Hasbro assured the collecting community that wave 4 of The Vintage Collection would be released in December (of 2010). (more....)
