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.

As you've probably heard by now, Rebels figures are hitting the UK, most notably at Disney chains. JTA reader Chris from the UK sends us a snapshot of one of the "Mission Series" card backs. Check it out, it actually looks pretty cool. I guess we all still have to hang tight until Hasbro resolve Rebelsgate. Yes, you heard that right: Rebelsgate. I'm coining it right now. No explanation, no nothing. Anyway, click through for more!
JTA moderator flamingtoilet alerts us that the Titan Millennium Falcon Walmart excluisve has begun hitting brick and mortar locations. Click through for his report.

Still looking for The Black Series Target exclusive Imperial Shadow Squadron? Keep checking Target and make sure to use DPCI# 087-06-1202 to look it up. We are still getting reports of folks finding this in stock and retrieved from the back. Thanks JTA reader "J" for letting us know he found his set today this exact way!

I traveled over five (5) hours on a Star Wars related business trip to BanthaSkull.com territory outside of Boston Massachusetts. And would you believe I STILL couldn't find any stinking figures?

ToysRUs.com has several items on sale for those still on the hunt. It's worth checking out. Thank you JTA reader Bob for letting everyone know!

We have another Spanish store report for you, and if you can read or speak Spanish, please translate this for us! Click through for more!
Well isn't this special? JTA reader Rafa C. found the Prototype Boba Fett in Spain. This is great news for him, but frustrating news to USA collectors who have yet to secure this bad boy.... us included! Yakface.com also had this report about him being a Walmart exclusive in Mexico. Let us know if any other non-US places show up offering this exclusive.
The Disney Store in Madrid Spain has completely reset their Star Wars display and we have to admit it looks pretty fantastic. Special thanks to JTA reader Olga from Spain who sent us these photos to share with our readers! Click through for more.
Kmart is beginning to receive the electronic talking 31" Darth Vader figure. We're not sure how many of you actually care, but we thought we would let you know. (more....)

What's weirder than weird? How about a ton of Reveal The Rebels showing up at your local TRU outlet store when the local retail locations still have received.... NOTHING!? Check out JTA reader Ben C.'s story!
JTA reader Jeremy from Ohio sends us an eager report that he is finding everything he needs in his home stat., Check out his store report!

And speaking of shampoo bottles, Kmart is STILL trying to get rid of both the 2013/2014 Yoda/Darth Vader line look releases. Get ready Kmart. Rebels shampoo bottles are only moments away too! (more....)

Well, still no immediate sign of basic figures, but JTA moderator Paul B. sends us photographic evidence that the new Star Wars Rebels shampoo bottles are now making their way to Toys R Us stores! Click through for more!

The Target exclusive six inch Imperial Shadow Squadron set is showing up at brick and mortar stores! JTA reader Tigersith just let us know that he picked one up in South Carolina. If you don't see it on the shelves be sure to use the DCPI number (087-06-1202 ) to look it up in the system and see if they will pull it from the back. Happy Hunting!
Update: We added an additional find in New Jersey. Click through for the report!

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 BanthaSkull.com 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!
It seems that distribution is forging ahead! JTA moderator Sjefke finally scores gold! Check out his very eager report!

There are two important things we are trying to reference in the thumbnail below, but click through to find out more about them. The good: 6" Stormtroopers are hitting brick and mortar in drives. The bad: The Titan X-wing is already on "rollback" by $15.
There is another cheap multipack. Well, not cheap in price, but cheap in quality. The TARGET exclusive Shampoo Bottle multipack has arrived at some TARGET stores across the USA. Click through for a close-up.

Figure switch-outs have gone e-tail! JTA reader Arnold Corso ordered one The Black Series Stormtrooper from Amazon Warehouse (the discount section of Amazon.com). But somebody did a bait and switch and returned another figure instead. Although Amazon.com boasts they inspected it (as evidenced by the attached sticker), the wrong figure was ultimately shipped. To be fair, we cannot fault Amazon.com, 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.

JTA reader Logan Starkiller checks in with his latest store report: "New" Target finds! (and something to make others wickedly jealous).

Star Wars Rebels is set for its official launch tomorrow and product is hitting in more and more frequency. Click through for JTA reader Andrews' report from Torance, CA.
Holy moly! JTA moderator flamingtoilet sends us an unbelievable store report! Look what his local Walmart marked down the rotting MTT to in the clearance section?! This is going to make those who found steals at TJ Maxx and Marshalls very, very angry! Click through for his report!
JTA reader Darth Janus writes in to let us know that his Walgreen store in upstate Massachusetts is still getting in random The Black Series 6" figures. He also stated that they are getting in heavier stock of The Black Series 3.75" line as well, many figures from wave 3 and wave 4.

JTA reader Commander Joe276 sends us an update that his local TRU is stocking heavily in waves 4 and 5 of The Black Series line. If you haven't found these figures yet, you better start checking a little more diligently! I can confirm they are hitting my local TRU stores as well heavily. Click through for his report!
I was so excited to see my local TARGET restocked for the reset finally after weeks of being late. As I came around the bend, even new The Black Series figures could be made out. (more....)

Well, here's proof you never know what's going to happen and how distribution can turn on a dime. If you live in the mid west and central USA, you have likely heard of ALCO discount stores. Guess what they're getting in now? JTA reader Mark H. sends us proof that the Naboo Starfighter has reared its ugly head again. Mark found the Naboo Starfighter at the Alco store in Peru, Indiana. It was $19.99 and they are having a buy one get one 50% off sale, but he believes that ends today.

JTA reader Travis L. confirms that Five Below stores are restocking on old The Vintage Collection figures again. Click through for his report!
