Look at what the Hasbro SDCC exclusives are fetching on eBay!

If you're looking to fill some holes for older Star Wars figures (of which there are many great ones), may I suggest checking out THIS SELLER on eBay? He has a great selection of Star Wars "Saga", Clone Wars, The Original Trilogy Collection and The Saga Collection figures and the prices are quite amazing for the most part. I just bought a dozen of his myself for RDR update reasons. The seller not only ships quickly, he also refunds the difference in shipping back to the buyer! I highly suggest checking these auctions out.
Check out this cool eBay auction where a seller from China has an awesome Legacy Collection K'Kruhk proof card up for sale!
UPDATE: This seller also has a ton of prototypes, hard copies and mock-ups of some cool Star Wars figures including Willrow Hood, K'Kruhk, Elite Corps Clone Trooper, AT-AT Driver and SO MANY MORE. Check out these auctions HERE.
A pretty funny yet well done "E7 Black Warrior" bootleg has hit eBay. It's worth looking at for a chuckle or two. Special thanks to JTA reader Bill for pointing it out to us.

It's pretty interesting to see how the value of The Black Series 3.75" figures has significantly increased recently on eBay. As you know, collectors began seeing a decline in the quality, selection and general offerings The Black Series 3.75" line brought us, especially when compared to the magnificent The Vintage Collection. Some of the more common peg-warmers don't even command their original values of course, but almost all of the "new" or first-time offered figures are double, tripe and quadruple their originals MSRPs. Of particular note, some sellers have put up individual parts of Jabba's Rancor Pit. You can find the all-new Jabba The hutt for $19.99 or the Rancor beast for under $40, which is a steal for both of them! It seems that there is still a market for 3.75" super-articulated action figures, despite what Hasbro has been burying their heads in the sand over for the last couple of years or so....

It looks like Hasbro Toy Shop's eBay page has restocked and this time some products have been included that we didn't even knew existed. While you may or may not care about these products, it seems that this is somewhat newsworthy to those who like keeping historical information of what's been released. Maybe we're not entirely correct here, but it appears to us that there are products now listed that have never made it to retail (in our areas at least) and perhaps are available for the "first time" on eBay. We're sure "someone" out there will say they saw this stuff, but it's news to us. Check it all out!

If you're concerned with what we just learned concerning Kanan Jarrus, don't forget that he is still available at Hasbro Toy Shop's eBay store and quantities look solid at the moment. Check out what else they might have and don't delay if you're on the fence with this figure. Many TBS6 figures are $19.99 and they offer FREE shipping. Check it all out!

Hasbro: please take notes. Check out this pretty amazing custom The Force Awakens "vintage-styled" Rey (Starkiller Base) figure on eBay.
Posted by Paul | June 19, 2016 at 10:23 PM ET |
It is so boring and bad right now that people on eBay are pre-selling upcoming TBS6 figures and are claiming that they're arriving June/July. This isn't so, folks. These figures are part of the Rogue One launch.Don't fall for it!
Posted by Paul | June 04, 2016 at 04:32 PM ET |
Wow. JTA reader and friend Josh M. sends us a link to a pretty shocking eBay auction. It looks like a new TBS6 Rey & BB-8 figure variation has hit eBay which now includes a lightsaber. I can hear to outcries and phone calls to Hasbro customer service now (provided this is legitimate). Check it out!
UPDATE: This is a legit variation! JTA reader Jair has confirmed receiving his wave 4 case directly from a distributor and all the Rey (Jakku) figures came with lightsabers!
Hasbro Toy Shop's eBay store has been updated once again. TBS6 Luke Skywalker and Kanan Jarrus are both available for $19.99 and FREE shipping as well as other additions and discounts on some others. Check them out!

Check out these awesomely bad Mexican bootleg The Force Awakens transparent and rubbery action figures that have shown up on eBay. These are so bad they're cool. We just had to share. Special thanks to JTA moderator Sjefke for bringing these to our attention.
eBay seller gototoycity has an unbelievable selection of cheap Star Wars figures. In many instances, 6" figures (loose) are less than half the price of the boxed versions. But there is MUCH MORE to check out anyway. Everything is currently on sale too! The store is in China, so be mindful of some of the bootleg figures that are known to come out of there (like Darth Maul). The rest of their selection is rather fantastic however, but please err on the side of caution if you are looking to avoid bootleg figures. CHECK THEM OUT!
FYI: Quite a few readers are saying these are fakes. Keep in mind that eBay has a strict policy on selling bootlegs when advertised as the real thing. If it came down to a dispute, the result would be in your favor. Some people are also just looking for a cheaper way to army build too. Also, as a reminder, we only know of one bootleg figure here: Darth Maul which we already warned you about in the past.

JTA reader Derek directs our attention to an eBay auction that may be of benefit to some of you. Three of the later Rebels Mission Series two-packs have been bundled together for a mere 15.83 (as of this post they're 12% off) with FREE shipping.
Posted by Paul | May 20, 2016 at 08:06 AM ET |
And I am starting to doubt its legitimacy (just because of the wonky packaging). An eBay auction popped up for the recently revealed TBS6 Astromech Droid three-pack. The bidding is obscene, but at least you get to see better images of these figures. What is up with the background of the figures? Call me a little skeptical now. However, the seller DOES clarify that he bought this while visiting Toys R Us in Hong Kong. Oh, and there is a sticker claiming it's a San Diego Comic Con exclusive, which is what we all surmised. Check it out!
Posted by Paul | May 18, 2016 at 02:33 PM ET |
HasbroToyShop's eBay store has added the Takodana Encounter set for $19.99 plus FREE shipping as well as TBS6 Luke Skywalker! Special thanks to Luck Dragon for the alert!

Loose copies of Disney's May the 4th R5-M4 astromech droid have hit tunghori's eBay store. Special thanks to JTA reader Falcon for the alert!
Posted by Paul | May 04, 2016 at 11:39 AM ET |
The Disney Parks must have opened! A plethora of R5-M4 figures have hit eBay. Check it out!
HasbroToyShop's eBay store has placed some Star Wars merchandise on sale, but you have to root through the store to find them. Many two-packs are significantly discounted, but nothing too outrageous overall. Take a look!!

Hasbro, during the years of 2008 through 2010, gave us some of the GREATEST collector-focused exclusives we had ever seen to date via The Legacy Collection and Legacy Collection line looks. (Little did we know then that the later half of 2010 through 2012 would be even better!) Today, these hot items go for a great deal of money on the aftermarket. If you're lucky enough, you can find them for great deals. Check out what these awesome pieces are going for today on eBay.
Posted by Paul | April 20, 2016 at 09:29 PM ET |
It might be worth checking out eBay seller tunghori's store. We hadn't checked there recently, but he has a great deal of TVC and TBS (3.75") figures complete for $6.99 or less (half the price of the 5POA TFA figures he currently has in stock). We were tempted enough to pick up a few for ourselves. Check it out!
Fly Navy Heritage Trust is a charity trying to raise funds here in England to keep their Sea Vixen (a Cold War era) jet flying. Interestingly they have found, in a container of old parts, an IG-88 Droid head (not the actual prop, but the same car part used in the Star Wars films)! Actually, it is a Rolls Royce Nene engine flame tube from the jet exhaust which was used to make the classic Star Wars character's head. (It can also be found in Chalmun's cantina.) They've reached out to us because they'd like to auction it off. They believe it would be a fabulous way to raise funds for the charity! Check out the auction HERE and be sure to leave your thoughts in the comments.

Well, this is interesting. Some of you who managed to score the newest The Force Awakens figures on Hasbro Toy Shop's eBay store are getting backorder notices.... but only after a dispute is filed it seems. Click the thumbnail below to see what JTA reader Mike M. experiences with his transaction.

Check out this HUGE instant The Black Series 6" collection on eBay!
Posted by Paul | April 09, 2016 at 05:31 PM ET |
Folks, don't give into the hype that Asty and Hux are rare. They're commanding RIDICULOUS aftermarket prices. Place your pre-order for the entire wave at JTA sponsor Entertainment Earth and don't over pay. More of this wave is coming next month.
Posted by Paul | April 04, 2016 at 06:27 PM ET |
Hurry! Hasbro has put a ton of new products on their eBay store each with FREE shipping and normal MSRP! Hurry if you still need some figures! The Force Awakens and The Black Series [Phase III] are available! Between you and us, this feels like a product purge!
You want Maz Kanata and her lightsaber chest loose without the other figures? Well, you can get her for the price of all the figures from eBay seller tunghori. If you don't, then just check out the new loose pics posted in the auction.
Posted by Paul | March 29, 2016 at 07:43 PM ET |
eBay super seller tunghori has added loose versions of the latest Kylo Ren "unmasked" wave of figures in his store! Special thanks to JTA reader Scot G. for the alert!

If you're new to collecting, you're probably acclimating yourself to the splendid figure selection of 2008-2010's The Legacy Collection/Legacy Collection through our FlashBack Reviews. These figures are some of Hasbro's greatest efforts (after The Vintage Collection of course), and the line produced an unprecedented array of basic figures, exclusives and multipacks. Sometimes their magnificence is overshadowed by the wonderful TVC line and often get overlooked. Because we have been adding them to our FlashBack Reviews, we have been checking aftermarket values on some of them on eBay. To say we're astounded by what we've seen is an understatement. Some of the Expanded Universe loose prices will make your knees buckle. But even common repacked or repainted figures utilizing older sculpts like Boba Fett and Padmé Amidala command ridiculous premiums too. There are also some deals to check out too. Take some time and see just what is going on with this splendid collection of action figures!
Holy moly! Look at what these eBay auctions closed at for these figures! Stay tuned for when we find out just how these figures are definitely coming to us!
Posted by Paul | March 12, 2016 at 10:05 PM ET |
Let's place bets on how much this will go for by the time the auction is over.... Special thanks to JTA reader The Fiery Dawn for the alert to this eBay arrival.
UPDATE: It appears Ahsoka's box art has been revised.
Posted by Paul | February 12, 2016 at 03:10 PM ET |
JTA friend and reader Arnold Corso sends us a link to eBay seller rickhor409 who has custom soft-goods available for many Star Wars 6" figures. We highly suggest checking them out to see how you can make your figures look the way they were intended to look.

JTA viewer Alientek has pointed out that long time eBay seller tunghori's store has become suddenly empty, as well as his auctions. For years tunghori has brought hard-to-find loose figures and newly revealed figures to collectors, usually at reasonable prices. Does this mean he's finally been shut down? We'll have to keep an eye on his store to see if it fills back up or disappears altogether.
Check out this new set of bootleg 6" figures showing up on eBay which includes the very first Emperor's Royal Guard in this scale. (We wonder if a Hasbro version is also in the works now....) Get this 6 piece set for $11.99! Special thanks to JTA reader Carlos C. for the alert!

There is an unstoppable aftermarket force when it comes to The Vintage Collection – the greatest Hasbro invention ever. And it is becoming overwhelming. Some of the most common figures that peg-warmed during its original run are commanding ridiculous amounts of money and ones that were hot at their release are nearly untouchable if you're interested in purchasing them today. Check out just what some eBayers are getting for these modern classic gems. It makes us wonder if this collection will one day compete with the actual vintage Kenner line from 1978-1985, because right now some of the TVC are more expensive than the figures from the 70s and 80s.... carded too! And now that we know that Hasbro doesn't have access to all of their older and recent sculpts, we may NEVER see many of these masterpieces again.
Posted by Paul | February 03, 2016 at 09:27 PM ET |
One of our readers directed our attention to what The Black Series [Phase I] Anakin Skywalker figure is commanding on the aftermarket. We personally never saw this wave hit retail, but we're just as shocked at what it's selling for on eBay. There are so many figures Hasbro needs to reissue in this line. It's definitely time to release a "greatest hits" case assortment out on the market to help kill these aftermarket prices.
