Read Our Article First: Yoda Is Reproducing Like Bunny Rabbits!

Posted by Paul | October 14, 2014 at 06:54 PM EDT |

Yours truly hasn't had the best luck at TARGET. But I was quite elated to see remnants of wave 4 on the pegs. Now all that's happening is that Yoda is multiplying like bunny rabbits. Those jerks at have already stolen my thunder with this article since they posted a relatively similar article idea before me, but one thing is for sure. Yoda is clearly passe! Expect him to grow in true Fibonacci sequence fashion!

You Have Heard Of eScalping. But What About eThievery?

Posted by Paul | October 04, 2014 at 07:40 PM EDT |

Figure switch-outs have gone e-tail! JTA reader Arnold Corso ordered one The Black Series Stormtrooper from Amazon Warehouse (the discount section of But somebody did a bait and switch and returned another figure instead. Although boasts they inspected it (as evidenced by the attached sticker), the wrong figure was ultimately shipped. To be fair, we cannot fault, but the person or thing that switched out the Stormtrooper figure... unless it was factory error. So many possibilities indeed exist. Regardless, is this what collecting has come to now? We complain and complain about what Hasbro isn't doing, then "collectors" steal from them (if that's what transpred here). All of this shrinkage adds up. And stuff like this happens way too often. Click through for more.

Egregious, Despicable, Disgusting, Horrifying, Enraging

Posted by Paul | September 17, 2014 at 09:24 PM EDT |

You will NEED to sit down before clicking through to witness the horror we did. We have no less than 15 images of pure theft to show you. JTA reader Greg B. sends us one incident after another of blatant theft and he assumes that this is the same thieving guy/gal doing this because it happens frequently and in a remote area. I need to find out more, but I would like to know why no one has done something about this or perhaps brought it to a district manager's attention. I think something like this would warrant a call to Hasbro customer relations. You will shutter. Be afraid. Be very afraid. Hasbro, you have all but ignored the fan sites, but if you're still reading, please do something about this.... even if it's simple staff education.
