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.....
You saw them for the first time right here at JTA with our complete thoughts and multiple-angled photographs, but now you can own your own loose samples courtesy of eBayer tunghori. Click through if you're interested! Special thanks to studlydudly for the alert!

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.

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!

The 2010 Legacy Collection R2-D2/C-3PO Geonosis Arena Showdown set rarely shows up on eBay, and if it does, it goes for a premium. Because of this, we thought we'd let you know that you can purchase both figures individually for under $5 loose. Links for each figure are found by clicking the images below. If you need to know why you NEED this duo of droids, then click HERE for more!

Wow! Look at all the great stuff eBay seller viperskingdom has on eBay at the moment!! Some new TBS figures and some definite rarities!
Posted by Paul | August 24, 2013 at 10:41 PM EDT |
We certainly understand why packaged figures are so important for Star Wars collectors, just look at The Vintage Collection. But when we see eBay auctions like this, it really makes our heads explode. Whether this is a real factory error or not, or just someone taking really bad advantage of the "separating card backs" issues, even if you did win this auction, are you really going to take a chance on it crumbling apart once it's in your own possession? Gee-whiz. Please learn how to appreciate these great figures outside of the packaging. If you don't, you're really missing out! See the madness HERE. Special thanks to Eli H. for the head's up!

This eBay seller is unbelievable! HobbyStock also has multiple loose red bandanna Kithabas in stock for less than $7.00 each! He also has a lot more cool figures in stock with reasonbale Buy It Nows too! Click through for more! Let's see how long it takes for this auction to make front page news "elsewhere" too...
This Battle Packs set must be a freak of nature because I have never seen or heard of it until now, but check out this AFA graded Capture Of Tantive IV Battle Packs set from the 30 (77-07). Do you notice any figures that don't belong inside of it? Check it out on eBay. And get ready to laugh over the price!
I haven't done the math so who knows if this is a deal (most likely NOT a deal), but regardless, we're not sure who would be willing to plunk down this much money on any loose collection on eBay. That being said, there are some really rare gems in this lot of Star Wars action figures. If you want an instant collection, this may be for you, but we would suggest writing the seller and asking if he would accept a whole lot less for it first!
There is a gorgeous Commander Wolffe collectible on eBay for a very reasonable price at the moment. Does anyone know what this is? Is it a custom? Special thanks to Haris I. for the head's up! Check it out!
Wo! The Shadow Of The Dark Side Cyborg Darth Maul from the Comic Packs line has hit eBay loose with FREE shipping from Hong Kong. Read the auction carefully, but this may be a great chance to secure this super-rare figure for your collection!
Posted by Paul | June 11, 2013 at 02:29 PM EDT |
eBay seller viperskingdom has a fantastic lot of five (5) Ewoks for $20.99 with FREE shipping. For both customizers and teddy bear lovers alike, get this family of fur balls for a very reasonable price! More than 10 sets are available for purchase as this goes to print! While they're not complete, there are some harder to find Ewoks in this lot including Romba and Leektar. Click through for more!
Well, we should have known something like this was coming. You now have the opportunity to put that loved one on a "vintage styled" Kenne card back! Make that toddler a Sith Lord, or that younging a Jedi Knight. It's all up to you. Click through to check out this eBay auction that makes this all possible. Special thanks to JTA reader Dominic N. for the head's up!

It's the hardest figure to isolate from The Rise Of Boba Fett Utimate Battle Packs set from The Clone Wars [Shadow Of The Dark Side] line and purchased separately, but thanks to eBay seller viperskingdom, he is offering about a half dozen RIGHT NOW. The Buy It Now is high, but make an offer because you just never know what this seller might accept. Plus, viperskingdom is offering FREE shipping too. Get this highly sought after astromech as soon as possible, because this supply won't last forever.

I totally stole this news from my Facebook friend Trevor S. (sorry Trevor), but check out this uber rare worth a bajillion cajillion dollars error Gamorrean Guard from The Vintage Collection! (That is a joke friends. We have to be clear so people don't think we're a so-called Star Wars "fan site".) Anyway, this piece of pork is looking a little lean, unlike someone else I know. What is it missing pry tell? Again, enjoy checking out the error, but don't be misled. This isn't worth more than a POTF2 figure.

How will you celebrate May The Fourth Be With You tomorrow? eBay suggests some wonderful items to help make this a momentous event for your and your fellow Star Wars fan. Click through to see what they suggest, from action figures to some extremely unique gifts!

eBay seller HobbyStock has added a few more items to his listing of auctions and sale prices remain in effect. We'd encourage you to take one more gander at what he has to offer before the sale ends!

Wow! What a day yesterday, huh, with regards to that Kit Fisto variant? While there are still silly skeptics out there, you too can own the Obi-Wan Kenobi (VC31) figure that displays the variant ROTS Kit Fisto card. Check out this eBay link to be brought to auctions for this figure. If the reverse of the card back isn't shown, email the seller and ensure that the card back had date stamp 11871. This date stamp has the Kit Fisto variation. Special thanks to JTA reader 3frenchhens for alerting us to this idea.

The 2012 Movie Heroes Battle Droid (MH22) (the tan one) makes a rarer than rare appearance on eBay! Click through to see if you're one of the few collectors who will actually own this action figure. JTA brought you the very FIRST LOOK at this figure and keyed you in on the fact that it's a very fun action figure indeed. Now see if it's worth owning one! Could you imagine if these start showing up at TJ Maxx or Ross soon?!
Posted by Paul | April 14, 2013 at 08:41 PM EDT |
ARC Trooper Commander from the rare ARC Troopers Battle Packs set for $2.99? TVC R2-D2 (VC24) for $2.99? The Clone Wars Captain Rex phase II for $2.99? The Blu-ray Commemorative SA Episode I Battle Droid for $2.99? TVC Odd Ball for $5.99? The Build A Droid K-3PO for $5.99? Yup! eBay seller HobbyStock has all this and A TON more! They just lowered their prices again! Please note that they have the same figures listed multiple times with different prices, so pay close attention! Click HERE to check out all of the Star Wars figures they have to offer!
If you recall, a little while ago we posted a link to an eBay seller who was selling the 2010 TVC Darth Sidious (VC12) figure loose for a very reasonable price (our original story can be found HERE). It has since gone up in price (you can see the auction HERE), but collectors often wonder about the quality of these "throw-away" action figures. If you're curious, JTA reader Cody B. has the answer for you. Click through to read his recent discovery.
