Star Wars [The Phantom Menace 3D] Line: How Time Has Changed It

For many of us, in the last couple of years, we have found a new appreciation for Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. Many have likened the film to a bottle of fine wine, that is getting better with age. Certainly far from perfection, the issues in the film often go overlooked in favor of enjoying what is enjoyable about it. Jar Jar Binks is usually the scapegoat for the film’s critics, but even he doesn’t bother us like he used to. (more….)

If you live in Canada, you might want to check out Walmart.ca as they have a ton of Star Wars The Black Series 6″ stuff in stock in addition to many 3.75″ figures. JTA reader hammyhamster sent us a link and we have to say we were quite taken aback with the selection. You may want to check it out for yourself as well.

Resist The Urge To Figure Swap Please

I guess we should have all seen this coming. If you can’t afford Star Wars figures or you get off from kleptomania, go play BINGO…. or something. This is egregious. Special thanks to friend Victoria from Victoria’s Cantina for the image.

Snoke Confirmed For The Vintage Collection!

Originally seen on our The Black Series [Phase III] 3.75″ rumor report, Snoke is now officially part of The Vintage Collection as seen below. If you recall, Snoke was removed from the Walmart assortment with the speculation that he would be placed in TVC instead. It looks like this is exactly what happened.

Back in January we “teased” an exclusive rumor that focused around a wave of Walmart exclusive The Black Series [Phase III] 3.75″ figures. The lineup ended up changing a bit, although we’re now inclined to believe the female X-wing pilot from Episode VII was confused for Rose. Snoke was bumped out of many initial assortments for reasons still unknown, but we imagine he is still planned for The Vintage Collection. And of course we didn’t know what the “new” Royal Guards were going to look like until the new production images leaked. Now thanks to another source of ours we’re able to provide you with a first look at this final wave of The Black Series [Phase III] 3.75″ figures (which are technically Walmart exclusives at this very moment) but should be available everywhere online soon! Slated with a November street date, you can check out these four super-articulated 3.75″ action figure RIGHT NOW!

We’re continuing to keep the conversation going! If you listened to the Hasbro Q&A (which was a team effort between JTA and Victoria’s Cantina – check it out HERE), you clearly remember Hasbro saying something that was as loud as clashing cymbals. It was also very heartwarming to fans of The Vintage Collection. When asked about working aliens/patrons from A New Hope (Chalmun’s Cantina) and Return Of The Jedi (Jabba’s Palace/skiff guards) into the planning of TVC they said “Absolutely, that’s kind of one of the main reasons we brought [The Vintage Collection] back. It is.”. (more….)

Remember this rumor report? (Click HERE to see it.) We didn’t know what the Praetorian Guards looked like back in January, but now we do.) Yakface.com confirms this rumor report and others that JTA broke with an update to what expect for The Black Series 3.75″ line.They also confirm another very old rumor report of ours where we told you there would be one final TBS [P3] 3.75″ wave of figures THAT WOULD BE general release items and not exclusive to Walmart. Also, there have been lineup changes as alluded to recently. It appears the Rogue One female pilot might be saved for The Vintage Collection, and it appears most Snoke products have been pulled for secrecy reasons and won’t be available on Force Friday (a total guess/assumption). You should remain confident that Snoke is still in development for all scales.

Remember this “rumor” report? (Click HERE to see it.) This is what we were alluding to in that post. The previously exclusive Walmart The Black Series [Phase III] 3.75″ figures can now be ordered by mainstream retailers. Diamond Distribution is now soliciting orders for Admiral Ackbar, Ahsoka Tano, Emperor’s Royal Guard, Lando Calrissian and Imperial Death Trooper and Jyn Erso for an August 31st availability date. Not available to order: Scarif Stormtrooper (SMH). Also note nothing is listed from the Ponda Baba wave either. Walmart has lost exclusivity to this line and it’s now a mainstream item. “Rumor” also has it that there will be one more wave of boxed figures on or around Force Friday II, but you never know if Hasbro will save them for The Vintage Collection instead. We’ll have to wait and see! Most importantly, take note of the MSRP. It’s a pretty “good” indicator of what to expect next year for another very important collection.

Are You A Good Hasbro, Or A Bad Hasbro?

I have had time to digest Hasbro’s presentation during San Diego Comic Con and I have distilled what concerns me and what elates me. While a 6” Maz Kanata is literally the VERY last thing I would ever want in my Star Wars collection personally, I have to admit that the rest of the presentation was Hasbro’s best in years. It certainly was far from perfection, but it’s a start and I want to be hopeful as I can. That being said, I do have great concerns. Adam Pawlus has already expressed his concern that The Vintage Collection smells like it might be dead on arrival. And in all honesty, part of me has similar reservations. But my hope outweighs the negatives at the moment. In an effort to keep thinking positively, I needed to itemize the pros and cons of what Hasbro has planned thus far. So, let’s talk about what will work and what absolutely won’t work so that we can clean up the negatives. Hasbro, please listen to this advising. We really know what’s best for The Vintage Collection. (more….)

We are honored to have teamed up with our good friend, the illustrious Victoria from Victoria’s Cantina, this year to conduct our Hasbro Q&A during San Diego Comic Con. We also entered the current century because the Q&A is in the form of a video. This time YOU get to see the wry smiles and illuminating expressions on the Hasbro Team’s faces. While we focused our efforts on learning as much as we could about The Vintage Collection, there is plenty of stuff here on The Black Series 6″ line and 5POA as well. Reissue older 6″ figures? Gray-haired Han Solo? Using 6″ to make SA 3.75″ and vice versa? Will there be more 40th anniversary love in TVC? Will there be 40th The Empire Strikes Back figures? What about the fate of playsets? You’ll get the answers to all of these questions and more, so be sure to check out what this beautiful bunch of people had to say by clicking the thumbnail below!

Four years ago today, Jedi Temple Archives organized and coordinated an unprecedented event within the Star Wars collecting community: a celebration of the magnificent The Vintage Collection basic figure line (which originally ran from the middle of 2010 through sporadic parts of 2013) and entitled it A Digested Look At The Vintage Collection. We rounded up the best Star Wars fan sites on the web together to rank the Top 25 greatest figures in The Vintage Collection basic figure line. But most importantly, we even got Hasbro on board where three of their finest, including Dave Vennemeyer (who has been with the Star Wars brand since the start), chose their own top picks as well.

Because The Vintage Collection is returning in Spring 2018, we thought this would be the perfect opportunity to re-share this amazing JTA Special Report with the collecting community. Many have left the hobby, but many have joined in and those that have remained are in for a treat next year. Besides, they get to see this report again. Our hope is that the new Hasbro brand team takes notes about what made the original The Vintage Collection so powerful and that they will ensure they focus on characters like those who made the Top 25 ranking (and even those listed in the honorable mentions). This is all necessary for the line to be successful. Know your audience, Hasbro. That is ALL we ask. Anyway, please enjoy this report for the first time or once again. Enjoy!
