What's The Deal With Disney Elite Series Figures?

Posted by Paul | October 04, 2015 at 08:13 PM EDT |

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.

Disney Elite Series Darth Maul IN STOCK At!

Posted by Paul | September 29, 2015 at 08:20 AM EDT |

Disney Elite Series Darth Maul Drama

Posted by Paul | September 28, 2015 at 05:56 PM EDT |

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, but only time will tell. Just wait until Boba Fett gets released. Sheesh!

Disney Store Running 25% Off Friends And Family Sale

Posted by Paul | February 16, 2015 at 05:32 PM EDT |

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).

Disney Store Puts Rebels Vehicles On Clearance

Posted by Paul | January 26, 2015 at 07:37 PM EDT |

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.

Disney Store Talking Yoda Revealed!

Posted by Paul | January 05, 2015 at 04:59 PM EDT |

With special thanks to JTA reader Jason S. for the alert, 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.

We are receiving conflicting reports about the UK Disney Store report we posted HERE. We have now received word that other stores outside of Central London will indeed be getting the merchandise as well. We will have to wait for more confirmation, but for the time being, take the original report with a grain of salt. This is great news for those who live outside of central London.

UPDATE: [THIS IS FROM A SOURCE WITH DIRECT ACCESS TO DISNEY REPS.] OK - just got clarity on the Talking Figures at Disney - on the phone as I type. They will initially only be available in the larger Disney Stores across Europe. If they sell well then Disney will look again. So stores such as the bigger ones in Manchester and Liverpool will see the figures but smaller stores won't.

It looks like our original report was accurate, folks.

Listen up readers from the UK! We have just received word from JTA reader zx_spectrum_30 that the newly revealed talking Star Wars figures (which range between 12" and 15" by the way) will ONLY be available at three (3) central London Disney Store locations..

UPDATE: While a few stores outside Central London will receive these figures, Disney is test-marketing them in the larger stores only first. If they do well then they will ship them out to the smaller stores.

Disney/Lucasfilm sends along the official press photos from their VIP event today. Click through to check out the press release and gallery...

Our friends at are releasing additional new information on the Disney Store VIP event in California. Just announced: a new scale of Disney Store exclusive TALKING articulated figures FOR $29.95 each. The scale is a bit murky at the moment, but they look closer to 12" scale. Check out the awesome Darth Vader, Stormtrooper, Luke X-wing Pilot, and I don't know how you feel, but the Han Solo looks freaking fantastic. See them as well as a ton of other Disney Store exclusives right now!


UPDATE 1: JTA reader Johnny W.O. writes in our comments that he read these figures are 18" per a Disney-themed website. Holy moly!

UPDATE 2: It has been confirmed that these figures range from 12" to 15".
