This post will make you feel pangs in your heart. Look at what fortunate Swedes get to choose from when THEY go Star Wars shopping. Click through for JTA reader Matt H.'s unbelievable report!
I can't believe these have been my options since the end of September at my local TARGET. Oh, and not shown but next to the Slave Leia and Greedo 6" figures are four TBS 3.75" Yodas. Click the thumbnail below for a larger image. Thank goodness for online.

JTA reader Jeff T. gleefully sends us proof that TARGET has given up on the Hero Series X-wing Fighter, which although Hasbro states is a standalone item, looks like the perfect vehicle for the "shampoo bottles". Come on gift-giving parents and children not interested in Star Wars yet. Why aren't you supporting this items? It's cheap, affordable and will fit your budgetary needs! All ye enlightened ones who claim to "understand" why Hasbro has gone the cheap route, why have you not supported this thing either? For your information, my TARGET locations are SWIMMING in these things. They're stacked up like freight in a warehouse. If this keeps up, retail won't even take a chance on the new Episode 7 Star Wars stuff. Why should they when they've been given all of these bridges to sell?

And it's almost Christmas! This may or may not be hard for you to believe, but there are STILL plenty of collectors out there who HAVE YET to see a single Rebels figure hit at their local retail establishments. JTA reader Matthew V. was so excited to see these arrive yesterday that he just had to send in the news. Click through for his report.

We're almost into the second week of December and my local TARGET has received 1 new Star Wars: Rebels figure (Jango Fett), 4 TBS [P2] Yoda (3.75") figures and is STILL swimming in TBS 6" Princess Leia (Slave Outfit) and Greedo figures. They're also trying to still sell these puppies from January 2013 (see thumbnail below). Why is Hasbro still making these? Oh, I know! They're for kids. And kids are going to save the line. As a close friend (and wise scribe) once said "Hasbro keeps chasing the customer they don't have instead of focusing on keeping the ones they do." I wish I could take credit for that line myself, because I honestly couldn't agree more with that sentiment. Maybe by Episode VII stores will get recalibrated and we can't start the madness all over again. (Click the thumbnail to see all I have seen since 2013 at my local TARGET, plus or minus a few exceptions.)
Paint operations have been much improved, but then there are exceptions like this. Check out the image JTA friend Dale H. shared on our wall. Image originally comes from Star Wars Modern Figures Collector's Facebook page.

Kmart is running a 25% off sale RIGHT NOW and would you believe they actually have The Black Series figures in stock. We do not know if this applies to store purchases. Click the banner below to see what you can get!
Our friends at Rebelscum.com are reporting that the next wave of The Black Series 6" figures have been found at TARGET. If you'd like to see one of these figures now, JTA photographed and reviewed the first production sample of Yoda in early October. Check that out here. It looks like the ones being found at retail are of the same quality.
JAT reader Mike R. alerts us that the TRU exclusive Battle Of Endor multipack is on sale for $69.99. These one day sales drive me crazy. I haven't been able to take advantage of one yet. You would think there would be better communication to patrons.

JTA reader Martin M. sends us proof that the blue phase of The Black Series line is hitting TRU stores. I can also confirm that this wave is hitting piecemeal at TARGET in Pennsylvania as well. Click thr image below for a larger view.

We have MORE proof of the 25% off Prototype Boba Fett with an image of the actual figure. It's running this week at Walgreens if you're lucky. I have YET to see this figure make a single appearance at ANY Walgreens store in my area and I have a bazillion of them. Nor has my online order shipped. Madness. NO MORE WALGREENS EXCLUSIVES! Special thanks to JTA reader Frank C. for the image and latest details.
It's an early Christmas miracle, but the Toys R Us in Princeton NJ where I work got in Rebels Saga Legends figures. They rang up $6.99 each. Click the image bellow for a larger view. They'll be coming soon to RDRs once we go through our Hasbro tribute run of reviews.

Earlier today we posted an article about the Proto Fett at Walgreens and 25% off. Well, back on November 9, 2014, JTA reader Steven U. actually sent me in the proof but it accidentally went into my junk folder. Sorry Steven! We weren't ignoring you! Please click through for his full report.

JTA reader Jcc2224 lets us know that his brother works at a local Target, and on his break he spotted the new vehicle-figure sets from Rebels! They only had the one pictured and the Ghost, the AT-DP wasn't present. Hopefully this is another sign that the Rebels figures will be hitting soon in a more widespread fashion. It' sbeen nothign but crickets in the PA area.

Wow! The Black Series wave 6 JUST started arriving to etailers like Entertainment Earth, but JTA reader Steve sends us proof that he's found them in his local Kmart in Maryland of all places. If you want these figures, Kmart may be a great option for you! They are only $9.99 each.

JTA reader Jac just wrote in to let viewers in the Delaware area know that the Walgreens in Wilmington, DE (Fairfax Shopping Center) has 5 Prototype Fetts in stock. Go there now if you are still on the hunt! Looks like the November shipments are starting to arrive as expected. Thanks for the tip Jac!

JTA reader K_Andrews reports picking up Star Wars Rebels figures at Toys R Us in Hawthorne, CA! And, he also found the Prototype Boba Fett at Walgreens (maybe they are finally getting their second wave of stock in!)... Click through for his report!

We have another unbelievable store report and if you live in the mid-south you really need to pay attention. It seems as if leftover The Vintage Collection figures are making their way to a discount chain called Bargain Hunt (right now they are only in IN, KY, TN, MS, AL and GA). This particular report comes from Knoxville, TN. But JTA reader John W. has a little more info for you, so click through for more. (And by the way, don't get too excited. You'll see what we mean in a moment.) According to John's report, these stores pick up returns from TARGET. How "funny" would it be if this is where all those figures ended up? Anyway, if you have a location near you, good luck and let us know what you find!
Update: Lexington, KY location has the same deal. Details after the jump! If you find similar deals/locations please post them in our comments!

There is another.... place to get the Shadow Of The Dark Side 2-pack vehicle sets! With special thanks to JTA reader Michael W., we know now that Marshalls is now getting them in stock, likely for the holiday shopping season. It's a good bet that TJ Maxx will also be getting these in as well. Click through for Michael's report!

Jedi Temple Archives -
While out and about today, I stopped into my local (Fresno, CA) Toys-R-Us and was surprised to see the Star Wars Black Series 6” Chewbacca, Darth Vader, Jedi Luke & Sandtrooper on the pegs. I hadn’t heard any store reports of these figures except for Walgreens so far, so I thought I would send in my report.
