Last year, while working our butts off to help get the Sail Barge fully backed, we posted an article on how international collectors could order it via MyUs.com. Those who pre-ordered the Sail Barge internationally through this service were able to place it under US address. (It’s one of their many services.) Well, JTA reader Packo M. took advantage of this service, and his Sail Barge arrived in excellent condition. Check out his full story by clicking through.

It’s the ides of March, but we’ve got nothing but good news to share. Hasbro released the most-perfect item for all Star Wars collectors. It’s finally in our possessions now. And as if in almost perfect serendipity: today is our 3,583rd review. The “83” represents 1983, the year of Return Of The Jedi. And the “35” represents the number of years it took Hasbro to announce that they would make Jabba’s Sail Barge (The Khetanna) in The Vintage Collection from the release of the film (2018).
Over 6,000 of you have already checked out our review, and between the New Acquisitions (currently comments) page and the RDR page, we have accumulated nearly 800 comments. If you haven’t left your two cents, be sure to do so! Also, the revised gallery now exceeds 170 images! We added new images including the Sarlacc Pit among others for you to enjoy. Please be sure to check out the updated review!

The headline of this article pretty much sums up what I think The Vintage Collection would say right now if it could speak. As someone who doesn’t swear, nor condones swearing, I apologize for the “crude” expression, but I can’t think of any other metaphorical saying that suits The Vintage Collection better. (more…)
Walmart is sending out email updates to their exclusive The Vintage Collection Lando Calrissian (Skiff Guard)Lando Calrissian (Skiff Guard) figure. It has a new availability date of April 1st and is expected to arriving at doorsteps around April 16th.
There’s probably no other way to describe Jabba’s Sail Barge (The Khetanna) than to use words like overwhelming and exhilarated. This long-awaited HasLab product is finally here, and it’s probably the most significant thing Hasbro has ever created in the Star Wars line. I spent today writing a long review putting my heart on my sleeve and describing every last detail of this vehicle. We have more images coming in our already-completed 140+ photo gallery (more images will follow), but everything else is done, so we’re sharing it early with you. In the meantime, enjoy both vintage Kenner and modern Hasbro figures set up in this behemoth.
We also included full images and comparison shots of Jabba The Hutt in addition to the exclusive Yak Face.
If you didn’t back this item, and you’re a 3.75″ collector, you’re going to feel the pain of missing out. Hopefully, our review and gallery will allow you to enjoy it vicariously. I spent over 19 hours between assembling, the photo shoot, the gallery preparation and the review template and write-up. So, please leave your thoughts and opinions of this vehicle in the comments. It would help make up for the lost time I can’t get back 🙂 Thanks!
The Khetanna is making its way into homes daily! We thought this was a good time to revive and revamp our listing of figures you can use to populate your barge. We did some homework and compiled a list of characters you’ll need (that have been produced by Hasbro as an action figure already) with your Sail Barge. Click through to see a comprehensive list of existing Hasbro 3.75″ action figures required to effectively populate Jabba’s Sail Barge (The Khetanna)!
Wow! Between the frequent shipping nightmare reports and broken content complaints we’re receiving, here is something we bet you haven’t heard yet. JTA reader Grand Admiral Tom posts his horror in our Barge Acquisitions page. He didn’t get the coin to the Yak Face figure! Click the image below to check it out!
UPDATE: The coin was at the bottom of the box! It fell out during transit. Still, it’s a shame his Yak Face figure packaging was damaged. New image provided and added by Grand Admiral Tom in the comments.
With special thanks to JTA reader Craig P. for the alert, the product page for the Walmart exclusive Jabba’s Palace Adventure Playset is back up again, and this time with images. The only question left is when this item goes up for pre-order! Special thanks to JTA reader Craig P. for the alert!
What an amazing gift we’re getting with the Skiff Guard three-pack coming later this year in The Vintage Collection! It went over extremely well with the 3.75″ super-articulated crowd. So wouldn’t a second one be just as exciting? Imagine a set based on some additional villainous retinue from Jabba’s palace, Jabba’s sail barge, or the other skiff. It would be AMAZING!
The new The Vintage Collection “repacks” are on TARGET’s website too. Remember, all of the human-faced figures are updated with “photorealistic” technology. Currently, all figures are sold out. Eagle-eyed collectors will notice that the names on 75% of these changed from their original release in 2010. Click any image below to be taken to that figure’s product page. Special thanks to JTA reader Mark for the alert!
As all of us know very well now, it’s happening! FedEx is gearing to ship out the overwhelming numbers of Jabba’s Sail Barges from Hasbro’s first successful HasLab campaign. JTA wants to share in your joy as well, so we’ve set aside a special page for everyone to chime in with their deliveries, their pictures and anything else they might want to share. So be sure to post your experience when you receive yours! The devoted page is found RIGHT HERE. (currently comments) (Please note rules in the featured comment.)
Everyone knows how magnificently Hasbro’s The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ Dewback turned out. While we have received acceptable releases in the past, a modern version utilizing the approach and perhaps the digital files of the 6″ version would work wonderfully in The Vintage Collection. Don’t you think? We need this beast updated, and it would be a perfect time to do so in The Vintage Collection. Let us know your thoughts about this in the comments!
UPDATE: It’s a policy change for Target which allows them to keep the Pre-Authorization active after falling off while waiting for the items to become in-stock and prepare for shipping.
It’s time for a new figure addition to the Visual Guides! Check out the latest The Vintage Collection release: 41st Elite Corps Clone Trooper (VC145). Click below for our full Visual Guide page. Make sure to also head on over to our review for a full analysis, and while you are there join in on the discussion! You can still order this figure over at our sponsor Entertainment Earth.
Hasbro, you’re doing the Lord’s work bringing us much-needed definitive versions of super-articulated 3.75″ in The Vintage Collection packaging. The recently released 41st Elite Corps Clone Trooper is a wonderful gift. And it’s the last Episode III clone trooper we needed to receive the awesome TVC treatment. Not only did you correct the screen-inaccurate paint operations, but you also enhanced the figure with “photorealistic technology” and an updated bucket (among other great updates). But now it’s time to talk some truth. (more….)

We just received two samples of the online exclusive TVC 41st Elite Corps Clone Trooper (VC145) action figure from our friends at Entertainment Earth, and we wanted to share what you need to know about it. This version is going to be the best The Vintage Collection 41st Elite Corps Clone Trooper (VC145) figure we will ever receive. Mark our words. It’s almost perfect, and it’s no way getting any better than this. But there are four major things you need to know about this release. 1. It’s in glorious TVC packaging. 2. The figure comes with enhanced “photorealistic” technology. 3. The color flashes are, for the first time after three chances, applied correctly. Even the gray color is the most screen-accurate we’ve seen on this sculpt. 4. This is the first release that comes with a “hard” bucket. Hasbro did not use the soft and squishy helmet. It’s a tad smaller, but still not correctly sized. But it looks MUCH better. This is great news. Check out our FULL AND COMPLETED REVIEW now in addition to a complete gallery with COMPARISON PICTURES! (Please leave all of your thoughts and comments on the review page. Thank you!)
If you haven’t ordered yours yet, you’d be a fool not to do this right away. Order yours HERE.
Hasbro truly stepped out of their comfort zone by producing The Vintage Collection Jabba’s Palace Adventure Playset. Simply put, it’s fantastic. Most of us believed the days of environmental backgrounds and playsets for our action figures was long gone, but here it is, proving us all wrong. Perhaps the most incredible fact here is that it’s not cardboard. Plus, the brilliance of including two figures we need to be carded in The Vintage Collection added as pack-in premiums are only gravy. (more….)
