The Walmart exclusive TVC Jabba’s Palace (Adventure Set) is the hybrid of many perfect things. It’s why it’s selling out the moment it goes back in stock. And it’s why we are still talking about it after so many posts. But today I noticed something that concerns me. (more….)
Hurry if you still need it! The Vintage Collection Jabba’s Palace Adventure Set with exclusive carded Han Solo (In Carbonite) and Ree-Yees is back IN STOCK after a couple of cancellations were processed! It likely won’t last long! Thanks to everyone who wrote in with the tip!
They’re here! Heather O’Rourke couldn’t have said it better. JTA reader and friend Danny R. was so eager to send in his report to let everyone know he picked up his Jabba’s Palace (Adventure Set) and he’s thrilled with it (so far)!. Let us know about your arrivals and what you think about this incredible retailer exclusive too!
In case you’re not aware from reading this detail in our review yet, the carded figures in Jabba’s Palace Adventure Playset don’t arrive in perfect condition. Ree-Yees is in better shape than Han Solo (Carbonite) because it lays against the side of the box. But Han Solo (Carbonite) has less support. This is an issue because of the way Hasbro packaged the, essentially floating around inside of the box without much support. This isn’t a Walmart issue. You can see how they’re packaged by clicking HERE. I am sure that time outside of the box laying flatly will help return the cared figures to their original shape, but please note that they may not arrive in ideal form.
For many, The Vintage Collection Jabba’s Palace (Adventure Set) is quickly on its way to homes across America. As you eagerly anticipate the arrival of yours, catch up on our thoughts on this fantastic set right now in our full gallery right now. It’s loaded with imagery and details, and hopefully, it will pump you up with excitement until yours arrives.
Many of you have noticed your cards have been authorized for the Walmart exclusive The Vintage Collection Jabba’s Palace (Adventure Playset). We’ve got great news! We’ve learned that stock has finally arrived in the warehouse (which is why there was a little splurge of available units this morning) and that the “ship to customer” date is TOMORROW! So, these should begin shipping TOMORROW! Aren’t you excited? We also can confirm that, while you may see periodic online availability, that our original report is 100% accurate. This item is sold out online and will be available next in quantity at the retail level in the Fall.
JTA reader Matthew C. via Facebook user Kylo Ortiz lets us know that the TARGET exclusive TVC Han Solo (Stormtrooper) (VC143) figure is hitting massively and getting placed in those “separate” Father’s Day displays outside of the toy aisle that we reported about weeks ago. They should be everywhere soon!
Out of the blue, I received a lovely email from Sean Crawford, the man who played Saelt-Marae (Yak Face), commenting on our vintage Kenner The Power Of The Force Yak Face review. Click through to see what he had to say. We’re honored to hear from him.

Did you successfully secure the Walmart exclusive The Vintage Collection Jabba’s Palace (Adventure Set)? Well, if you didn’t, you might be in for some disappointment. Aside from pre-order cancellations and declined credit cards, the stock available online is now depleted, that is unless an order for more is placed (which may or may not happen depending upon what Walmart sees fit for this item). Later this Fall, select stores will receive an allotment as well. Should any of this information change, we’ll be sure to post an update for you. P.S. The blockbuster success of this item is really, really good news.
As you know, there are four major releases this Sunday at TARGET. The already popular Retro Collection figures will make their debut (and have already shipped from online if you’ve pre-ordered them). The second big release is The Vintage Collection Han Solo (Stormtrooper) figure. The third is The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ Luke Skywalker (Death Star Escape) figure with slicked-back wet hair. Lastly, the Escape From Death Star Board Game with exclusive Grand Moff Tarkin is also an official release May 12th.
There are some fantastic figure updates in The Vintage Collection, and we’re happy to see Hasbro putting forth the effort on these figures. Hasbro is knocking it out of the park when it comes to applying “photorealistic” technology to the super-articulated 3.75″ action figures, and one of the standouts is the 41st Elite Corps Clone Trooper. This Entertainment Earth exclusive is one that SHOULD be in your collection. Hasbro released the character previously with incorrect deco but nailed it this time around. We think it’s worth checking out this figure for a second time. And we hope you reconsider adding it to your collection if you don’t have it secured yet. Currently, it’s in stock at site sponsor Entertainment Earth and you can pre-order yours HERE. It’s doing so well that it’s exceeding expectations. Many collectors are finding out about this best-kept secret. Don’t let it be a secret for you! Click the image below for our full review of it.

In case you missed any of it, here is the recap of The Vintage Collection wave 21. This great group of figures received updated galleries and a ton of discussion from our community. Be sure to add your two cents HERE if you missed any of it!
Question. Actually, two questions. Question #1: Should The Vintage Collection Ree-Yees (VC137) and Han Solo (Carbonite) (VC136) from Jabba’s Palace (Adventure Set) receive VC numbers part of the regular lineup, or should they instead receive a number more similar to the one given to Yak Face from Jabba’s Sail Barge (The Khetanna) (VC000)? Do you find it bothersome in any way that figures part of the basic figure numbering system are exclusive to playset? I suppose the same would apply to retailer exclusives like Lando Calrissian (Skiff Guard) (VC144) and Han Solo (Stormtrooper) (VC143) as well.
Question #2: Should Han Solo (Carbonite) (VC136) have been part of this set? Shouldn’t Hasbro have added the redone magnetic carbonite block as an accessory here and instead included another Jabba’s palace alien? The reason I bring this up is that Han Solo is based on his appearance from The Empire Strikes Back and not Return Of The Jedi. Oh, and if you think neither of these questions is important, please skip over this post. Thanks.
We have the final figure from wave 21 ready for our Visual Guides. Check out the repacked Captain Phasma (VC142) Visual Guide by clicking below, and click here to see what we had to say about this figure in our complete review.
Pre-order The Vintage Collection Jabba’s Palace Adventure Set with exclusive carded Han Solo (In Carbonite) and Ree-Yees figures. As of this post, it’s back in stock!
Well, this is the bum figure in wave 21. Why in the world would Hasbro reissue Captain Phasma without an updated portrait or the quicksilver batons from the 5POA release? This character needed a desperate update in the 3.75″ super-articulated range, and we didn’t get it. See more in our Research Droids Reviews today!

Nope. Get it out of your head. The thrice-stocked and sold out within less than 48 hours fairly-priced Walmart exclusive TVC Jabba’s Palace Adventure Set has NOTHING to do with it being an Original Trilogy focused set with super-articulated 3.75″ action figures packed inside of it while covered in vintage Kenner packaging. Not at all. So just drop it already. You’re wrong.
