New Walmart Exclusive Rogue One Three-Pack Found!

Posted by Paul | November 28, 2016 at 04:25 PM ET |

Many of you are sending in reports of finding an "unannounced" Walmart exclusive three-pack, but JTA broke the news of this set on October 1st. Check out the article HERE. The news now is that it is being found! Thank you for your store reports!

....While half the country hasn't either seen any, or anything beyond the Finn/Poe wave. Look what JTA reader and friend Josh P. found at his local Walmart in Ohio. Walmart is once again CLUELESS! They're almost as bewildered as Hasbro for even giving them this cherished action figure format.

Walmart Exclusive Scarif Trooper and Krennic Wave Finds

Posted by Andrew | November 22, 2016 at 01:31 AM ET |

Looks like Target & Walmart are the places to go for your Black Series needs. Colin reports finding the Krennic Wave at a Piscataway, NJ Target. JTA reader Anton L. reports finding almost an entire platoon worth of the Walmart Exclusive Scarif Stormtrooper. Thanks to both for the store reports! If you find anything new and exciting in your area, let us know.


Black Series Krennic Wave Found at Target

Posted by Andrew | November 20, 2016 at 02:12 PM ET |

At my local Target I found the Scarif Stormtrooper Squad Leader and Director Krennic 6” Black Series figures, (They had C3PO, but I’m passing on that one.) Also, Target was running a special for 20% off all toys (excluding some games and Legos). I ended up saving $4 per figure. Look for signage at your local Target and text the code for a scannable coupon on your phone.

TODAY ONLY AT TARGET: 30% Off Toys (Exclusions Apply)

Posted by Paul | November 19, 2016 at 11:14 AM ET |

Those of you who have TARGET's Cartwheel app are in for a real treat. Today ONLY (and I believe in store only), there are offering a one-time coupon of 30% off toys – it excludes LEGO unfortunately. If you don't have the app, there are directions at the brick and mortar location to text PLAY to 827438. I just took advantage on this deal. It was super cool. Remember, its' TODAY ONLY and a ONE TIME USE, so choose wisely.

Looks like reader Corey P. scored the newest 6” Black Series figures at the Minneapolis Mall of America GameStop. Congrats Cory, and thanks for the heads-up!

Posted by Paul | November 18, 2016 at 08:03 PM ET |

We know TARGET is getting older stock, but is Walmart also getting old product too? We have a report of some orange packaged stuff, and not the blue phase of The Black Series has just been found as well. What is going on here? This report is from James S., and we're trying to find out his location.

JTA reader Mark from Texas has also found the Krennic/Scarif Stormtrooper Squad Leader TBS6 figures too! They're really starting to hit.

More TBS 3.75" Imperial Death Trooper/Jyn Erso Sightings

Posted by Paul | November 06, 2016 at 06:39 PM ET |

We have received additional store reports for the Jyn Erso/Imperial Death Trooper of Walmart exclusive 3.75" figures. We now have reports from California and Washington state. They've yet to hit the Philly area, but then again I haven't seen anything since Han Trench Coat. (UPDATE: Pal Mike L. from GA has also found them!)

Kohl's Exclusive Rogue One Multipack Found

Posted by Paul | November 02, 2016 at 12:12 PM ET |

JTA reader Don D. found the Kohl's exclusive Rogue One multipack. There is some newness to this set, but perhaps not enough for the average collector to plop down $40+ for this set too.

A Plethora of Hovertank Pilots Waiting For Deployment

Posted by Paul | October 27, 2016 at 01:57 PM ET |

If you are still looking for the Toys R Us exclusive Hovertank Pilot it might be time for another check. JTA reader Mark's local Toys R Us in Frisco, TX had a squadren of them on the shelf... Thanks for the store report Mark! And making us all feel bad that our Toys R Us shelves don't look like this! Now if we can just get Walmart to start putting out that Scarif Stormtrooper!

As we wait for more contrarians to say that these signs ALSO aren't for the products underneath of them, we have a report from JTA reader Damian V. that more Rogue One and Pop! clearances have been spotted.


You Just Never Know These Days When Things Might Arrive

Posted by Paul | October 26, 2016 at 09:05 AM ET |

JTA reader Tommy W. has been so frustrated lately looking for new Star Wars stuff, especially the TRU exclusive Imperial Hovertank Pilot. After calling incessantly for weeks and still being told no, he went to his nearest store (far away from his home) and found a nice chunk of stuff we needed. Don't give up the fight like we have folks. It may just arrive one day!

Imperial Hovertank Pilot Re-arriving Into Toys R Us Stores

For those of you who missed out on the Imperial Hovertank Pilot Toys R Us exclusives (a very fine figure if I must say so myself), it is showing up in stores once again. JTA reader Mark from Frisco TX found them today!

$49.97 TBS6 Vehicles And $5 TBS6 Figures - WHAT A SUCCESS!

Posted by Paul | October 21, 2016 at 12:38 PM ET |

I just got from a much-needed vacation and I feel like "disqusing" something controversial. For collectors that have been collecting the modern Hasbro stuff since 1995, nothing is more grating to our ears than newbie collectors telling us what the collecting community wants and how 6" is "where it's at...." I have digressed already. I didn't mean to go for the jugular right away. Images have been circling around aSocial Media like this one showing that BRAND NEW figures are marked down to $5 a piece. This couldn't be more of a loss to Walmart (in this case). 3.75" super-articulated figures would be nowhere found for the Rogue One launch. Heck, 3.75" super-articulated figures never got anywhere this cheap YEARS after they hung on pegs! When you see prices like $14.99 dancing around, sure, that's competition to have the lowest price. When you see $5, it means total failure (at that particular store and maybe more) or that this line just isn't what people think it is. Let the trolling begin!

Imperial TIE Striker On Walmart Rollback

Posted by Paul | October 21, 2016 at 12:28 PM ET |

JTA reader Adam sends us an image of a Walmart Rollback for the Imperial TIE Striker. While it's possible (and likely) that markdowns like this are all part of the retail scheme, it shows us one thing in particular: these new ships are too dang expensive. Even this price is too expensive for our tastes.

French Retailer Carefour Gets TARGET Exclusive 12" Droid 3-Pack

Posted by Paul | October 21, 2016 at 12:23 PM ET |

JTA reader Stephane H. sends us a report from France. Retailer Carefour is getting the USA TARGET exclusive "shampoo bottle" droid set if you're interested.

3.75" Super-Articulation Attacked On All Fronts

Posted by Paul | October 15, 2016 at 08:02 AM ET |

Even The Black Series 3.75" line can't resist the attack of 5POA on our collecting world. The figures are morphing into 5POA right in the package!! Special thanks to JTA reader Chris for the image.

The Curse Of Constable Zuvio

Posted by Paul | October 11, 2016 at 09:46 AM ET |

Constable Zuvio makes a return to retail (or maybe he just never left). See what's wrong in the picture below. Oh, and apologies in advance for this hate-filled post I created! (Special thanks to JTA reader Vince W. for the image!)

Not That Inquisitor, THAT Inquisitor!

Posted by Paul | October 11, 2016 at 09:38 AM ET |

JTA reader Derek found this new Galactic Heroes two-pack at TARGET. He expressed that in typical Hasbro fashion this item is two years too late as The Inquisitor died at the end of season 1. Since season 3 just started, we wonder if this was the best choice for a kids' toy. And does a release like this build a new generation of young customers for Hasbro?

Found! Rogue One 12-Inch Figures Hit TARGET

Posted by Paul | October 11, 2016 at 09:19 AM ET |

Collector have been asking where Hasbro's 12-Inch Figures are. Well, it looks like they're hitting retail (TARGET Dover, DE) as we speak. JTA reader Jeff M. found them yesterday at his local store.

What Do The After Effects Of Rogue Friday Look Like In Your Area?

Posted by Paul | October 09, 2016 at 07:03 PM ET |

JTA reader and good friend Chris S. sends an image of what his local Walmart looks like. His Walmart didn't put anything out on Rogue Friday, and then put out this self-shipper loaded with product a couple of days late. A grand total of four figures have sold from this display (and he lives outside of a major city). Chris is convinced that this perceived pile-up wouldn't had happened at all if these figures were super-articulated 3.75" figures. Obviously this is one instance, but what are you seeing in your area? I can't comment as I see nothing in the Philly area except for a couple of TARGET stores, and they're only loaded up with six different 5POA figures. And three of my local TRU stores are frustrated because they haven't received anything substantial in their stores yet. Is it too soon to comment about a potential lackluster performance of the Rogue One products? Is it flying out of stores where you live? Is TBS6 performing well in your area? Are people waiting for this film this time?

Found! Two-Packs Wave 2 Hit TARGET!

Posted by Paul | October 05, 2016 at 02:32 PM ET |

FOUND! JTA reader Mike R. has found Two-Packs wave two which includes the Seventh Sister Inquisitor Vs. Darth Maul and Baze Malbus Vs. Stormtrooper sets in Target in Portland, OR.


Close personal friend and JTA reader Chris S. was so browbeaten by the tone of so many conversations in our article surrounding back-door early purchases of Rogue One products that he's been inspired to follow suit. He writes "I'm going to bring two Hot Wheels cars up to the self check out to buy these (shown in image below). #BetterThanAScalperGettingThem".
