Oh no! I hate to complain about the new wave 2 TBS 3.75" figures already, especially when it's been the most exciting news of the year with regards to Hasbro products, but it looks like they screwed up the visor on the First Order Stormtrooper figure. Check out this auction for a better close up look. It seems they went "old school" Original Trilogy with this character. With an exclusive line that will see SO FEW releases, Hasbro MUST get the quality control in order because there isn't any time and extra money for running changes. Special thanks to JTA reader and friend Josh M. for the discussion/text on this! Once again, the 5POA version is done without error, and the super-articulated version in currently screen inaccurate.

Check out the "new rare running variant" of Rey (Starkiller Base) from The Force Awakens line. It can be yours for only $99.99 on eBay! I guess this seller is a new Hasbro buyer and just isn't used to the shoddy paint operations yet.... Special thanks to friend and JTA reader Rum Sleg for directing us to this auction!

The panic has begun! The world's worst peg-warmer of the last two years, the figure that was subject of many a controversy, is now going for crazy money on eBay now. Check out the madness! Special thanks to JTA reader Michael W. who has brought this to our attention!

eBay seller tunghori also has plenty other highly sought after action figures. These are great if you're cherry picking the hot characters!
Looking for a Chopper action figure without resorting to ridiculous aftermarket prices for the Rebels carded version, or getting another unneeded Zeb with The Force Awakens Two-Pack version? Well, eBay seller tunghori has single samples available for you!

Sadly, the First Order Stormtrooper has been quite difficult to lock down. if you can't wait for this figure to be restocked, there are some listed on eBay for $29.99 with FREE shipping. Check them out.
If you're a vintage Star Wars collector, you know how sought after the 1984/1985 POTF coins are. A nice "starter set" has appeared on eBay which contains most of the more common coins but also includes the stunning Anakin Skywalker and Yak Face coins. Additionally, it also includes the super rare gold Boba Fett Droids coin. Interestingly, there is ANOTHER auction of just this rare Droids Boba Fett coin. Check them out, and if you get bit by the coin bug, here are two great auctions to start your downward spiral into debt. We jest. These are great fun to collect.

Our friends at the Wolfpack Podcast alerted us to two new The Force Awakens figures hitting eBay in the UK. The card back also reveals The Inquisitor. Check out the Guavian Enforcer and General Hux in 3.75" scale (the Build A Weapon line) on eBay!

Everyone wants The Black Series 6" Captain Phasma. The good news is that she is starting to hit eBay which means that USA accounts should be getting their stock soon. Special thanks to JTA reader Mike R. for the alert!

Wo! It looks like China has said "screw it" with the street date too! Former eBay seller viperskingdom (now trooperwrold) has The Force Awakens Snowspeeder with FO Snowtrooper Officer. There are a nice amount of loose pictures, so check it out!!

We were all pretty amazed by the value of 2012's TVC Ahsoka figure. In the last year or so, wave 1 of The Vintage Collection was skyrocketing too. While some figures definitely command a premium still, we were perhaps more surprised by how many of the past high market values have plummeted significantly. Check out these auctions and see if you can fill any holes with these recent price drops! Click any thumbnial below to be taken to that figure's auctions.
Posted by Paul | August 24, 2015 at 06:05 PM EST |
Goodness gracious! Look what 2012's The Vintage Collection Ahsoka figure is going for on eBay. It's ridiculous. And if you think these are just "asking prices", just check out COMPLETED LISTINGS to see that these asking prices are pretty accurate.
UPDATE: Who is the dum-dum who bought this for $100?

Well, I'd be lying if I didn't think these eBay finds were interesting. An eBay seller from Malaysia has found three bootleg The Black Series Episode VII figures in Cambodia and has put them up for sale. If that wasn't a tall enough tale, the three figures look like all-new sculpts and, get ready for this, are loaded with premium ball-jointed articulation unlike the 5POA figures Hasbro makes! Does anyone else find it odd that bootleg figures, which should cost next to nothing to make, are actually better than the Hasbro figures in terms of articulation? Notice the odd light-up feature too!
UPDATE: We have just learned these are actually 6" figures, hence the super-articulation.

Hopefully this isn't old news for you. It's been a while since we've linked to the eBay auctions of tunghori. But to our big surprise he has listed loose 2010 TVC MagnaGuard (VC18) figures that are complete. This hard to find figure is often at the top of collectors' lists to even obtain loose as it wasn't widely available when originally released. He has it listed for a very reasonable $12.99 loose. You should also check out his other auctions as well. He has a ton of figures from The Clone Wars line for $5 and under and other gems. This is definitely worth checking out!

With special thanks to our friends at Yakface.com for the alert, The Black Series 6" Emperor Palpatine packaged figure has made its way to eBay which likely means it's not too far off from reaching the USA. Check out the auction and let us know your thoughts on this long-awaited figure. If we could only get a definitive 3.75" version.....

Legendary eBay seller tunghori has JUST placed a ton of cool figures up for sale on eBay including the upcoming The Black Series Darth Vader (ROTS) and Wedge Antilles (Snowspeeder Pilot). Due for a September/October release, secure them now if you don't care about packaging or possible imperfections.

Don't feel like you want to risk missing the SDCC exclusive TBS6 Jabba The Hutt with Salacious Crumb? eBay seller viperskingdom has one right now up for auction. It shows boxed images but the description says loose. Check it out! Hurry though because this auction ends in less than 24 hours from the time of this post.
Check out this ridiculous eBay auction. Unless one is getting a full case of Darth Sidious figures, I don't think the suggested start price is remotely close. Actually, it's so preposterous it it laughable.

You saw our earlier report today, but anyone doubting why Hasbro SHOULD indeed flood the market with hot Star Wars figures need to look no further than this eBay auction of 10 TBS 6" Stormtroopers with a starting/recommended bid of $500 which is $300 higher than what they should cost. The madness that HasbroToyShop started today with a "one per lifetime" maximum of this figure is enraging, and once scalper scum get a whiff of that craziness, prices will only go higher. Don't think for a minute that limitations will help you secure one for your collection. Only by Hasbro constantly releasing and re-releasing these hot figures will put an end to this nightmare. Hasbro should have the right to pull auctions like this if you want my opinion! Oh, and better case assortments will only help. But who knows when that will improve (in this scale at least).

With special thanks to JTA Facebook friend Nick B., he has alerted us to eBay seller sinodolls who has over 30 loose Bastila Shan figures (minus right hands) for $7.99. If you can swap out another hand, this is a great deal. We didn't post this to tease you with an incomplete figure, but browse his auctions for some awesome deals. THere are some cool things available.
Posted by Paul | January 15, 2014 at 05:18 PM EST |
The same seller also has the Rebel Soldier (Echo Base Battle Gear) (VC68) figure for $19.99! Currently there are four left of these figures!
UPDATE: SOLD OUT!

JTA staffer Chris M. alerts us to the fact that eBay seller viperskingdom has the new The Black Series 6" Luke Skywalker (Bespin Fatigues) up for auction. He has also pointed out the paint job on his face, which of course should cause some alarm in any normal human being. Hopefully this is a rough inital factory pressing before the machines were calibrated. Mamma mia!
