#populatethebarge - How Is It Going?

Back in March, we provided you with a guide on the best way to fill your Jabba’s Sail Barge when it arrives early next year. If you have done your part to #backthebarge, we thought we’d provide something to you that many requested to us. We did some homework and compiled a list of characters you’ll need (that have been produced by Hasbro as an action figure already) that you’ll need with your Sail Barge. So we now wnat to know. How is it going? Are you almost caught up? How many more do you need? Click through to see a comprehensive list of existing Hasbro 3.75″ action figures required to effectively populate Jabba’s Sail Barge (The Khetanna) when it arrives. Some of these figures cost nearly as much as the #backthebarge does! (more….)

Review: Jedi Training Academy - STAR TOURS

Here is a blast from the past, and an item we recently realized we never got to add to our RDRs yet. Check out the Jedi Training Academy from the Hasbro-produced STAR TOURS line. It’s a nice set and gives us a generic human male Jedi Master that can be used to represent the many unidentified Jedi Knights during the Battle of Geonosis. You also get three Jedi Padawans and Darth Vader in this set too. Learn more and see if you can secure this RARE set today by checking it out in our Research Droids Reviews today!

Do you want to see the Disney Droid Factory Sandcrawler in motion? Do you want to hear it’s sound effects and see how how it lights up? JTA reader and friend Logan has taken video for us and we put it up on our YouTube channel for your viewing pleasure! Check it out!

Alright, here we go, folks! With EXTRA SPECIAL thanks to friend and JTA reader Logan, we’re able to provide you an exclusive look at the interior and exterior of the Disney Droid Factory Sandcrawler Playset. This thing is beyond impressive. It comes loaded with lights and sounds (video forthcoming) and has INCREDIBLE sculpting within its four walls that has completely blown us away. The detail is overwhelming and has plenty of room for a hoard of droids. This is going to be a hot item for 3.75″ collectors. Disney went above and beyond here. We should count ourselves very, very lucky! By the way, measurements are 20″ long, 9.75″ wide in the front and 9″ wide in the back.

      
      
      
      

UPDATE: The Sandcrawler’s full features include: retractable claw, opening light-up cockpit, motion activated sound, lights, sound effects, trap door, motorized elevator, light-up furnace.

And here are some awesome new loose images of the pack-in “GONK” Droid, which looks to be based off of The Vintage Collection Special Action Figure Set figure by Hasbro. We will never see the vintage Kenner blue one ever in 3.75″ scale updated?

BREAKING NEWS! We now have a closer look at the pack-in figures to the Sandcrawler Playset. Both figures look minimally articulated, but I wonder if that GONK Droid is the first Build A Droid figure of this particular droid type. Imagine a future Droid Factory Lars’ Homestead GONK Droid because you know Hasbro is never going to give it to us.

By popular request, we’re adding The Original Trilogy Collection Jedi High Council Scene Packs which were all Toys R Us exclusives from 2004. Hasbro saved the best set for last and it’s only because of one figure. Shaak Ti turned heads and was a significant ugrade from the one released in the basic figure line a couple of years earlier. It still holds up well today. Let’s finish up with Jedi High Council (Featuring Shaak Ti, Agen Kolar & Stass Allie) (Scene 4). It’s the focus of our Research Droids Reviews today!

Another Vintage Kenner Item: 2019 Calendar

There is an “interesting” calendar on Amazon which features vintage Kenner action figures. Similar to the Five Below poster we reported about recently, most of the figures are incomplete. What’s more, some have been placed in scenes that are screen-inaccurate. The makers of these products should probably check out our vintage Kenner archives for accuracy and inspiration. Anyway, check it out. Special thanks to JTA reader Jason S. for alerting us to this item.
