Looking for a Happabore to interact with your The Force Awakens action figures? JTA reader Jeremy B. alerts our attention to an 18 inch latex/polyester version of this beast, available on DisneyStore.com! It seems like its scale is somewhere between the 3.75" and 6" figures.

JTA reader Patrice P. sends images of a new Disney boxed set showing up which includes Han Solo and General Organa. It will be interesting to see if Hasbro's Leia looks anything like this one! We just need to know if they're coming or not as Hasbro has not given us any indication of any forthcoming products (or official announcements of what has already been released).

We have heard shipping disaster stories on how Disney Store online ships out collectible merchandise, but now we have some evidence to share with you. JTA reader Gavin B. shares his latest experience with other readers. (more....)
JTA reader Jeff B. was so excited to receive his Disney Elite Series Boba Fett figure.... and then he looked at the hands. Has Boba Fett had too much salt in his diet? What is up with his chubby hands?

JTA reader Jaret T. sends us his own interesting analysis and questions on the Disney Elite Series metal figures. We have to admit that we don't understand the distribution on these fully yet either, and why no one who should knows doesn't. However, the rumor for a couple of weeks now has been that stores and online will indeed see additional product). Click through for more.

For those of you looking to escape eBay prices for the Disney Elite Series, JTA readers DaveB., Robert R. and Gavin B. let us know that the Darth Maul Eite Series metal figure is IN STOCK at Disney.com!
I am so glad I don't collect these [ugly] figures, because something like this would enrage me to the point of probably compromising my health. Nothing like this should be limited, especially with a new Star Wars film coming in addition to the low numbers of the Disney Elite Series figures. Only minutes after they went on sale via lottery system, over 50 listings instantly appeared on eBay. Save these for collectors, folks. Hope exists that they'll be available at DisneyStore.com, but only time will tell. Just wait until Boba Fett gets released. Sheesh!

The Disney Store is running a Friends & Family discount sale which means everything in the store is 25% off, including clearance. JTA reader Brandon Y. was able to score a TBS6 Princess Leia (Slave Outfit) for a mere $5.25 (down from $6.99) and the remaining Rebels vehicles are on sale for $9.75 (down from $12.99).
JTA reader and friend Ben C. send us an image that filled us with a little bit of dread. His local Disney store had the Rebels vehicles on clearance for $12.99 each. Keep in mind that this is a Disney Store (the people behind this Star Wars property). It is true that retail discounts items based on their sell through, but come on now. Maybe Rebels just doesn't have the mojo it needs to support itself? If that's true, then it's a shame, because the show gets increasingly better with each new episode. But how does this bode for future vehicle assortments? (We gave up on the Rebels Saga Legends. We'll never see those again....) We haven't even been through ONE complete season of the show and now the Disney Store puts toys from this show on clearance? Click the thumbnail below for the proof.
With special thanks to JTA reader Jason S. for the alert, DisneyStores.com has listed (what appears to be in-stock at the time of this post) a Yoda Talking Star Wars figure based on his Episode II/Episode III appearance. It wasn't known what other figures would be part of this line, but apparently it's Yoda. It's a shame that Disney went with a PT take on Yoda because they were doing so well focusing on the Original Trilogy, but this figure still looks great.

Much to the relief of that "lovely" site Jezebel.com we assume, DisneyStore.com have added a nice selection of cool Princess Leia Organa merchandise to their roster. Many sites pledged for this, including our friends at Yakface.com and we thank them for the alert to this news as well.

With special thanks to JTA UK reader Slinky Sid for the alert, the Talking Chewbacca is available to order (it looks to be in stock and not a pre-order at the moment) on Disney's UK website. Still no sign of the Boba Fett figure yet. Check it out. It looks great!
UPDATE: JTA reader Joe G. let us know that he found the Talking Chewbacca in the USA in Indiana as well. So these are arriving worldwide apparently.

Yours truly attended the Disney Store event in Langhorne, PA on May the Fourth, but hair-brained me forgot to take pictures. Thankfully, JTA reader Chris C. was gracious enough to send me some of his snapshots. I made the line just in time at 96, but Chris got at his store a little bit earlier than I did. Click through for some event images!
