TBS6 Ahsoka Wave Hitting Canada Harder!

Posted by Paul | May 22, 2016 at 07:31 AM EST |

Wow! Look at this find from Halifax Canada! While we're not sure of the location, JTA reader Daniel L. couldn't be more thrilled with seeing this after seeing nothing for months!!

File this under "you just never know what you might find at retail." JTA reader Mark has located a rare find: The 2012 SW [TPM 3D] MTT vehicle for a mere $55! What a deal for this fun vehicle!


JTA reader Aarren A. has found The Force Awakens Battle Action Millennium Falcon for over $100 off for the low price of $35!


The Black Series 6" Anakin Skywalker Found At ROSS For $9.99!

Posted by Paul | May 12, 2016 at 07:22 PM EST |

A store report showing The Black Series [Phase I] 6" Anakin Skywalker and The Black Series [Phase II] 6" Chewbacca being found on clearance at ROSS has made its way to Instagam.You may want to start checking out this retail chain for these figures! Special thank to JTA reader Marcel for forwarding us the news! By the way, stuff like this ALWAYS happens. When figures spike on the aftermarket in conjunction with not seeing them hit retail when they're supposed really just means that the original allotment just didn't make its way out. Hopefully more people will be able to grab this figure now and the aftermarket values will plummet.

Get Well! Get Well Soon! We Wish You To Get Well!

Posted by Paul | May 04, 2016 at 10:49 PM EST |

Come on retail. This is ridiculous! SO many stores are looking like this now. JTA reader and regular commenter Sloth from Hoth writes in with a jarring store report image and wants to wish everyone a Happier May the 4th than he had, or as many of us have on a daily basis. Here Sloth, have a piece of carrot cake on us!

UK Report: ASDA Exclusive TBS 3.75" Wave 2 Found!

Posted by Paul | April 30, 2016 at 08:33 AM EST |

From what we have learned from our many UK readers, anything beyond wave 1 of The Black Series [Phase III] 3.75" ASDA exclusive line is pretty much nonexistent. JTA UK reader Michael G. eagerly writes in to let us know that he has finally found wave 2! It appears things are beginning to look up! Click through for his report!

We've been getting in a plethora of store reports from everything including the Kmart exclusive TBS6 Rey (Starkiller Base), TBS6 Wave 6 (the Ashoka Tano wave) to the Takodana Encounter multipack! Let us know your finds too in the comments! Special thanks to the following for sending in their reports: fearxforthebest, Christian C., Gabriel E., DevilDog, Tommy W.

Walmart Exclusive 3.75" TBS Figures Now With Collector Stamps?

Posted by Paul | April 25, 2016 at 11:55 AM EST |

It appears that Hasbro is adding collector stamps to the Walmart exclusive The Black Series 3.75" line now! No, it's just to block the missing accessory. Is it too cruel to wish that the punishment for Star Wars action figure theft would be hanging, drawing and quartering? It seems as if it would be the only deterrent to make people stop this despicable act. JTA reader Jaret T. sends us an almost humorous act of vandalism and theft for a 3.75" TBS figure. Click the thumbnail below for more.

JTA reader sshaun93 has found wave 4 of The Black Series [P3] 3.75" Walmart exclusive line in Creatwood IL for $7 each!

UPDATE: Found! Walmart Exclusive TBS 3.75" Wave 4 In USA!

Posted by Chuck | April 24, 2016 at 08:05 AM EST |

Found! Despite concerns that these might not end up as Walmart exclusives (thanks to complete non-communication of anything in the Star Wars brand), JTA reader Al C. sends us proof that the new wave has been found in Detroit MI. Al lets us know that this wave comes with a couple of each in every case. Let us know of your finds. The three UPC symbols for the three new figures (in no particular order) are:


UPDATE: We have just learned that these were found at other Walmart stores for $5 each. There's nothing like Walmart handling brand new exclusives! Hasbro: please never give Walmart anything 3.75" SA exclusive again!

Kmart Exclusive Rey (Starkiller Base) Continues To Hit!

Posted by Paul | April 20, 2016 at 02:31 PM EST |

The Kmart exclusive TBS6 Rey (Starkiller Base) figure continues to hit Kmart stores across the country in Miami FL and South Carolina in addition to Ontario Canada California. Some readers even suggest looking for her in the clearance aisle where they found her! (We're telling you retail is clueless!) Let us know of your finds! Special thanks to JTA readers joshx, Cameron M. and Gabriel E. for all three reports!


UPDATE: It's Ontario, California, NOT Canada. I got the CA mixed up! Apologies! Kmart isn't even in Canada now.

Posted by Chuck | April 18, 2016 at 03:35 PM EST |

The Takodana Encounter multipack is hitting Walmarts in Canada. JTA reader Tom sent in his latest find...

Just saw the Takodana Encounter multipack releases in two different Walmart stores around Montreal, QC, Canada today. The pack is listed at 29.92$ CAD + tx. I bought one... for Maz Kanata! Walmart had 6 multipack in each of both stores.


Target Is Once Again Practicing Inventory Control

Posted by Chuck | April 18, 2016 at 01:43 PM EST |

Target has done this on and off for years, but it looks like it's back. Click below to have a look at the latest collectible items disclaimer that Target has posted. This may or may not be at all stores. Of key interest is the notification that they will not be checking the stockroom for those items they feel the need not to put out. Thanks JTA reader Kevin for sending this in. Sound off in the comments if your local Target is once again controlling what you buy.


Wow! We're a good three weeks out from May the Fourth and JTA reader Paul G. has found the TBS6 Rey (Starkiller Base) Kmart exclusive at his local Kmart store in Florida! Let us know if you find her too!

Sears Canada Has Takodana Multipack IN STOCK!

Posted by Paul | April 10, 2016 at 01:37 PM EST |

For those in Canada, Sears has the Takodana multipack in stock. Special thanks to JTA reader Chris M. for the alert!

With the release of The Force Awakens on Blu-ray and DVD, many TARGET stores are getting displays full of products. (Is it just me, or do you not see TFA selling?) For the first time ever, many readers are finding the TBS6 Jango Fett wave stocked in them (or subsequently relocated to the shelves. I can attest to seeing this at my local TARGET in Neshaminy PA. And JTA reader Richard F. can report the same find in Burlington NJ. Click through for his report!

File Under: Too Much Too Late (More Examples....)

Posted by Paul | April 09, 2016 at 08:40 PM EST |

JTA friend Martin M. sends us a great store report from San Antonio TX. His area has been dry but he has found the Nien Nunb wave as well as a Walmart store where Class II vehicles have been discounted to a much more reasonable $19.00. I can confirm that Philly also has these marked down to $19.00 as well!

The Force Awakens/TBS6 Lineup: Too Much Too Late Now?

Posted by Paul | April 02, 2016 at 11:40 PM EST |

As Star Wars collectors, Hasbro can rarely make us happy all of the time. That's a given. But I don't even think they can deny that Force Friday didn't go as planned. We're not going to beat up on them about that. But now if you go to Toys R Us, TARGET and Walmart, you'll find that wave 3 of The Black Series [Phase III] 6" line is clogging the shelves. Now, my area was one that has received next to nothing of ANY The Force Awakens products (especially in comparison to the mid and south West and New England areas) and even Philly is swimming in these figures now. Captain Phasma can be found everywhere. Even the Walmart exclusive 3.75" line (wave 3) has been overstocked to the point of not even fitting in the allotted spaces it's been granted. These quantities should have been available on September 4th, not April 2015. I wonder if the newest products will even find their way to my areas now because I don't foresee this old product moving out to make room for the truly new stuff. Hopefully The Force Awakens DVD/Blu-ray release will bring some toy buyers into stores again, because right now I don't see much of the line moving at all.... whether they're just peg-warmers or actually new and hot products.

Disney Theme Parks Come To The Rescue!

Posted by Paul | April 02, 2016 at 11:20 PM EST |

We're a tad late posting this story, but the TBS6 Jango Fett is making frequent appearance both online and at brick and mortar for the last couple of weeks. It truly is a surprise how this figure has become the runaway hit of wave 5. JTA reader WIll P. writes in eagerly telling us about his latest find at TARGET. Click through for his story!

When Does The Retail Price Become Egregious?

Posted by Paul | March 27, 2016 at 10:34 PM EST |
