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.

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.
