Seems as though Colin Trevorrow followed in Rian Johnson’s footsteps and asked for a small favor of the current Star Wars director. Just as Rian Johnson asked J.J. Abrams to have R2-D2 go with Rey to Ach-To and leave BB-8 behind, Colin Trevorrow asked Johnson for a similar favor. Click through to find out more.
The Legacy Collection Battle Packs line contained a few repacks from previous line looks. Clone Attack On Coruscant was one of them but this time the figures inside of it received different paint operations. See more in our Research Droids Reviews today.

It’s probably a good bet that collectors of the 3.75″ The Last Jedi line will see Hasbro double their efforts when it comes to articulation in the line. (more….)
Look what new figure has just hit Disney Parks today! JTA friend Mario M. has found the new BB-8 figure in California this morning at his local Disney theme park! As you recall, this figure was revealed at SWCO this past April.

Like many of you, I remember scouring garage sales for Star Wars figures that parents were selling for .25 cents or 5 for a buck. It seems like with all the technology at your finger tips, the days of finding that gem cheap is over (or at least more difficult). Well, I had this app on my phone for quite awhile and I mostly used it to sell some old clothes and things, but recently I find out it can be a treasure trove for Star Wars collectors.

You are? Well, how much do you enjoy standing in lines? Lines, lines, lines, and more lines! Star Wars Celebration is the same way. If you want exclusives, let’s face it, you’ll be in a line most of the day. Wouldn’t it be great if there was another way? Well, there is and I think it is time that everyone gets on board.

Recently, I shared my review on the new Marvel Darth Vader comic which is written by Charles Soule. I thought it was a fantastic start to a new series that explores an area of Darth Vader we have yet to see and are eager to see; his first steps as the mechanical, maniacal apprentice of Emperor Palpatine. In a recent interview with Marvel.com, Charles shared his thoughts on the Emperor, Darth Vader, and where this comic series is going.

JTA reader Ken reports that Targets in AZ are starting to receive these exclusive Pops!. Each Target received only 4 so these may be scarce for awhile. They’ll probably be making their way around the rest of the US this weekend, so be on the lookout because you’ll never know what you’ll find. I stumbled across a Rey with speeder Pop! at Walmart the other day. Ken was also kind enough to provide the DCPI 323-01-0569. Good luck!
The Baze and Chirrut TBS 6″ figures may arguably be some of the most difficult to find. The fact that they were single packed in a case with 4 carry overs did NOT make it easy for people to find them. Heck, I STILL haven’t seen them in a store and I only have them because I got lucky on Amazon early on. Good news may be on the horizon for those still searching for these retired Guardians of the Whills. JTA reader Anthony reports that his Entertainment Earth April pre-orders are due to ship out Monday. Hopefully that means more solid cases are making the rounds. Might be time to get your orders in from EE!
….and saw himself on sale for less than 5 bucks! I’m not good at telling jokes, so thankfully this isn’t one. How would you like to pay under $5 for some great The Black Series 6″ figures? Well, JTA reader JediRebel77 shares with us quite a find at a local Target store. Even though we all love to find a deal, Target REALLY needs to make some changes to the way they handle inventory for Star Wars figures. Click through to see what kind of deals we’re seeing.
Good friend and JTA reader Josh Makison has gifted me another incredible item after I drooled over the one he made for himself (as we highlighted here recently). Knowing my love for the Disney Parks 4-LOM sculpt, Josh went above and beyond and also customized a vintage Kenner Zuckuss figure for me by repainting the BAD sculpt and placing it on mock vintage Kenner card back. Hasbro – please pay close attention. You need to get this sculpt into the Hasbro line and do the same EXACT thing. It’s the most screen accurate sculpt of this character to date. We still need a TVC 4-LOM (update) and Zuckuss (first time offering) and this is the only way to do 4-LOM (vintage Zuckuss) in my opinion. Thank you!

Steve Evans, Design Director for Hasbro Star Wars, has revealed on Star Wars Black Series 6″ Collectors Facebook page that the 6″ Jawa’s eyes glow! (Too bad they glow green, Steve! Just kidding!) Cool Easter egg!
UPDATE: JTA reader Zach L. actually pointed out this detail in our Jawa RDR 21 days ago!
The solid case packs have gone up for pre-order at Entertainment Earth for two hard to find The Black Series [Star Wars 40] figures. pore-order as many Artoo-Detoo (R2-D2) and Han Solo figures as you’d like and KILL that aftermarket folks! Special thanks to JTA reader Craig P. for the alert!
The Hollywood Reporter has posted an article which ushers in concern for Star Wars Episode IX based on director Colin Trevorrow’s critically panned The Book of Henry. Apparently the film is so bad that the critics couldn’t stop laughing. And we know how disastrous the Jurassic World reboot film was. Should Star Wars fans be concerned about this latest installment in the series? This quote is especially disconcerting: “And the compounding coincidences he requires in order to deliver a happy ending are almost disgustingly dishonest.” Although, this is exactly what TFA brought us so it might be the perfect marriage here. No comment from this peanut gallery, but special thanks to our friends at BanthaSkull.com for alerting us to this interesting Friday story.
