Why would anyone think that he could get this price for these two ultra rare figures? Or will he actually get it and perhaps more? Hasbro hinted that they'd consider re-releasing these two figure's in TVC's prime, we wonder if it's a possibility sometime in 2018 or beyond.... Special thanks to Sjefke for the disconcerting reminder.

UPDATE: These figures continue to toggle in and out of stock. Keep checking!

The Black Series [Phase III] is geared up to arrive this Friday at many retailers but you can see these sellers' auctions on eBay explaining that these will be available today. Check it out.

You can get an instant The Black Series [Phase I] collection of 63 figures with a very low active bid. The eBay seller warns of Bubblegate in so many words, but most people should just consider these are loose figures to prevent any disappointment.

For those of you that missed out on the best collecting era of all time (hint: it WASN'T now), you can get an instant The Vintage Collection in one fell swoop including variants with this eBay auction. As of this posting the original auction ends in less than 24 hours. Dang! Look at that price! Special thanks to JTA reader Cameron M. for drawing our attention to it.

We haven't been keeping up, but we've heard that quite a few 6" collectors are looking to add the Star Wars: Battlefront Imperial Shock Trooper. They are on eBay as low as $18.88. Check out the online auctions where you can find them as low as $18.88 with FREE shipping.

A seller on eBay claims to have The Black Series [Phase III] Hera Syndulla IN STOCK. Is this a mistake or did she actually make it out on time? We know people who have reached out to the seller to actually confirm whether or not he'll be pulling K-2SO out of the case assortment instead!

Most of The Black Series [Star Wars 40] wave 2 figures are IN STOCK and averaging around $25 each on eBay. Check out the selection! Special thanks to JTA reader Cody B. for the alert!

We can blame Hasbro for our collecting misfortunes all we want when it comes to bad case assortments and distribution, but when you see stuff like this you really have to wonder if our brethren are just as guilty for the mess Star Wars collecting is in at the moment.

The TVC Sandtrooper is still in stock with eBayer tunghori. Did anyone else notice that he is giving the buyer a pair of macrobinoculars (which look like they're from the 2001 POTJ figure) with the VC112 Sandtrooper purchase? It's in stock for a reasonable price, so don't delay if you want it.
Posted by Paul | May 10, 2017 at 04:51 PM ET |
In case you're not aware, Hasbro Toy Shop's eBay store still has some great deals on a few Rogue One products including vehicles and Two-Packs.
Posted by Paul | May 09, 2017 at 09:26 AM ET |
Now that we're waiting for the latest three figures from The Vintage Collection to make their way into the fledgling Walmart exclusive The Black Series [Phase III] 3.75" line, do you expect aftermarket values for The Vintage Collection's VC61, VC70 and VC112 versions of them to plummet, or will they hold on more tightly than ever before? Check out what these figures currently catch on eBay! Crazy.
Posted by Paul | May 02, 2017 at 06:06 PM ET |
It was inevitable. Poor case assortment ratios always will lead to overstock of the more common figures. Hasbro Toy Shop's eBay store updates with The Black Series [Star Wars 40] with all three double-packed figures including Princess Leia Organa, Luke Skywalker and Ben (Obi-Wan) Kenobi. Remember. Putting figures on an eBay store is NOT a sign of good sales performance. Can we expect $10 figures soon?

We have no idea what is going on with Rogue One wave 4 at the moment other than what our original rumor reports stated. But if you definitely want to esnsure you grab Fenn Rau, this eBay offering may be one of your last bets. (Disclaimer: we have NO IDEA if Fenn Rau will eventually be offered like the rest of the figures in this wave.) If you need help making a decision on these figures, be sure to see our full overview on each of them in our Research Droids Reviews and Visual Guides as well!

Hurry! The Raddus/Fenn Rau Wave is BACK on eBay for a "decent" price. Remember, Hasbro says these will be available in LIMITED quantities and there are no reports of these hitting brick and mortar yet. If you need help making a decision on these figures, be sure to see our full overview on each of them in our Research Droids Reviews and Visual Guides as well!

Wow. Look how much tunghori is selling Jabba's Skiff Guard [Brock Starsher] for loose: maybe Hasbro should reissue him in The Vintage Collection!
Posted by Paul | April 27, 2017 at 07:24 PM ET |
The Legacy Pack in IN STOCK on Toys R Us' eBay store for $39.99 with FREE SHIPPING! Get it while you can. Special thanks to Victoria's Cantina for the notification!
I shouldn't be surprised, then again, I AM surprised. Look at the aftermarket on this repacked figure.

Wow. Look at the carnage on eBay with all of the Celebration Orlando exclusives (including our patch set). And look how much that TBS6 [SW40] Luke Skywalker figure is going for right now. Don't fall for it people. These will have greater numbers soon.
Posted by Paul | April 12, 2017 at 09:03 PM ET |
Hasbro Toy Shop has added the TBS6 AT-AT Driver to their eBay store. Special thanks to JTA reader Eddie A. for the alert!
I am in Florida so I am cranky. And when I am cranky I am extra sarcastic. But I can't think of a better reason why some newbie collectors should just close their mouths and learn from the longtime collectors when I see eBay auctions like this. Be sure to read the description. Simply put: dude – you were scammed. Don't pass the scam on.... figures from 1997 just don't magically appear in new Hasbro products 20 years later.
If you have an extra $38K, how about considering dropping it on a super-rare white-caped vintage Bib Fortuna figure on a Walrus Man card back? Check out this super-awesome eBay auction.

Ree-Yees is once again in stock at tunghori. He has other cool super-articulated figures in stock too. Check it all out!

Even controversial eBay seller tunghori knows how to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Star Wars better. While not rare, on average it goes for about double what tunghori is offering.

You think 3.75" collectors are finally facing the music? And that they're finally figuring out what the future holds for them? Look at this insane expired auction where a complete set of The Vintage Collection figures were sold for an astounding $3,250 on eBay. This averages to $28 a figure. Special thanks to friend Chris S. for the alert. As some give up and sell, others enter trying to complete their collection of these fabulous figures.
Wow! Look at the crazy prices Build A Droid BG-J38 will run you. Even the single parts and incomplete droids go for a mint. Special thanks to JTA moderator Sjefke for the heads up!
Posted by Paul | March 17, 2017 at 05:41 PM ET |
Wow! Hasbro Toy Shop's eBay store has put a lot of stuff on sale too. They must be making room for news products as well. Check out what they have. Lots of stuff is close to 50% off!
We think we have found a bootleg that tops all others. Check out this awesome "The Black Series Kylo Ren"! Special thanks to JTA reader Olloe for the heads up!
With special thanks to JTA reader fearxforthebest, check out these cool The Black Series 6" prototypes on eBay. Does anyone know what that Luke Jedi head scupt could be? Perhaps the Luke Bespin head misidentified? It looks great unpainted!
