Obi-Wan Kenobi (SDCC 2016) - Hasbro - The Black Series [Phase III] (2016)
Star Wars Collectible News, Photos, and Reviews

Tag Archives: 3.75″ Super-Articulated

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!

We’re all over the moon about the possibilities with the return of The Vintage Collection. But we want to know how you’d react if the line opens up with a wave of straight The Force Awakens repacks (plus or minus an all-new figure). It seems many collectors are anxious about this and with the difficulty of the Walmart exclusive SA 3.75″ line making an impact at the brick and mortar level, you’d have to wonder if there are plans to get these figures out again but in the way they were always intended. Would it sour TVC’s re-arrival for you? Would you be ecstatic? Would you wonder what the heck is going on with Hasbro? Will you feel that new Star Wars Entertainment might kill the spirit and intent of this coveted line? Let us know your thoughts. (Special thanks to Sebastian E. at Blizzard Force Customs for loaning us these images of his custom TVC-inspired TFA figures. His Facebook page can be found HERE.)

Walmart Is Clearing Shelves Across The Country

It seems like every day we get a new report of clearance items at Walmart stores throughout the US with ever-decreasing prices. It seems to be a large push of what looks like every Star Wars product in their toy aisles from The Black Series 6″ & 3.75″ to 5POA and everything in between. Is this happening at your local Walmarts? Click through to see some examples.

While this report is anecdotal at best for the moment, check out what Facebook friend Derek T. discovered at his local Walmart with regards to the status of ALL current Hasbro Star Wars figures. Besides, we can’t imagine this not happening nationally soon anyhow. (more….)

We are talking “pre-return of TVC” here. We all knew that giving Walmart the exclusive TBS [P3] 3.75″ super-articulated basic figure line was probably the debacle of the ages. In fact, it may have been the worst decision for the health of the SA 3.75″ Star Wars line even beyond The Phantom Menace 3D decisions made in 2012. (more….)

Hasbro recently launched a new subscription service called “Hasbro Gaming Crate” and ships a themed crate of three games to the subscribers house every three months. I don’t know about you, but how great would it be if you didn’t have to struggle to find every figure and they just showed up at your door step? Click through to read on.

There are ten (10) specific things I have been obsessing about that I want to see get done when the return of The Vintage Collection comes this Spring 2018. (A lot of it has to do with the original Kenner line.) While it would be wise for all of us to not count our chickens before they hatch, TVC’s return is likely to be a scaled down version of what we encountered between 2010 through parts of 2013. However, there is no reason why Hasbro can’t make most of their existing tooling budgets, parking lots, checklists and brainstorming to help us complete modern releases of the figures we grew up with as kids. Doing this will benefit everyone involved in the Hasbro/collecting community universe. While this unofficial Top 10 list of mine is really “all over the place’ with regards to what it covers, you will notice that it hones in on one repeated topic: getting those original “Collect All 92” out/completed in this line and offers suggestions on how to do it. Please click through and be sure to leave your own two cents in our comments. We have to keep the conversations going about The Vintage Collection. It’s the most important thing Hasbro has done for us in over half a decade.

If you recall, we informally polled our readers asking what currently existing 3.75″ super-articulated action figures they’d like to see re-released or added for the very first time to The Vintage Collection when it returns this Spring 2018. These figures would receive NO UPDATES or REFRESHES as they would be STRAIGHT REPACKS. (We’ll get to easy retools/kit-bashes at another time.) Now we’ve loosely compiled the results and came up with a solid list of 125 frequently requested characters. Click through for more….
