Availability of action figures at brick and mortar retail stores has been a topic of debate lately. But what is the state of the US toy industry and US toy retailers in 2018, after the demise of Toys R Us? Click through for more details!
Guess who else followed suit to mark down The Black Series [Phase III] Rey’s Speeder (Jakku) 6″ vehicle? Right now you can secure one on Amazon for $14.99 with Prime. Thanks to all who wrote in to alert us!
Holy cow. The Vintage Collection First Order Stormtrooper is now a $6 Add-on item on Amazon. Get ’em while they’re cheap! It will be a cold day on Mustafar before that upcoming Imperial Stormtrooper follows suit! Special thanks to JTA reader Also S. for the alert!
The highly anticipated Thrawn sequel is out today. You can pick up Thrawn: Alliances on Amazon right here.
If you pre-ordered The Vintage Collection Imperial Combat Assault Tank from Amazon, they’ve begun shipping them despite initially listed with an August 3rd availability date. They are also in stock as we post this. Special thanks to JTA reader Mike R. for the alert!
If you’re interested, The Black Series [Phase III] Kylo Ren Centerpiece figure is marked down to $28.96 with Prime plus if you click a coupon on the product page, they’ll deduct another $1 off the total for you too. Special thanks to JTA reader Jay V. for the alert!
Well, here we go again. Many of the latest The Vintage Collection figures are no Add-on Items at Amazon.com, listed for about half their MSRP. See the list for yourself. This is a tip to Hasbro that straight repacks should be the minority, not the majority, especially Sequel Trilogy repacks. No one wants them. NOT relegated to Add-on Item status: OT Hoth Trooper. Special thanks to JTA reader Agustin for the alert!
You can pre-order The Black Series [Phase III] Force FX Z-6 Riot Control Baton from Amazon. It has an August 1st availability date. (A lot is being released in August FYI.) You can also check out new images of the products on Amazon as well. Special thanks to JTA reader and friend Danny R. for the alert
If you’re interested, The Vintage Collection First Order Stormtrooper is $8.99 with Prime on Amazon. Interestingly, this is the only figure piling up at my local TARGET stores. Special thanks to vikingrobot for the tip!

4-LOM is showing as able to order for $19.99 on Amazon, but some cannot add it to their carts. Good luck!
UPDATE: Go to other seller options to add it to your cart! Thanks to Ben I. for the tip!
It’s about $30 more than when it was first released, but the beautiful The Vintage Collection TIE Interceptor is in stock on Amazon with Prime for $79.99. (Get used to it. That’s how much these vehicles are going to cost going forward!) Special thanks to JTA reader Neil D. for the alert!
In what seems like something that’s out of the blue, multiple sellers on Amazon have the Walmart exclusive TBS6 [P3] Kylo Ren (Throne Room) figure for around $23. (Be sure to check all sellers for the best deal.) What’s interesting about this is all of the complaints that this figure never showed up at many collectors’ local Walmart stores. Now it’s on Amazon for cheaper than Walmart is selling it.
And speaking of BB-8, if you missed our Facebook alert hours ago, the BB-8 2 In 1 Mega Playset is only $49.99 on Amazon. I particularly find this a shame. This playset was actually a lot of fun. It’s totally worth $50. Grab it!
Hey! This is a great deal! On Amazon there is a bundled set of the Boba Fett (Prototype Armor) and Jabba The Hutt 6″ figures. They’re on sale for $44.99 as a SET! Special thanks to friend Steve U. for the alert!
Hey! The Black Series [Phase I] Stormtrooper #09 figure is IN STOCK at Amazon for $22.99 Prime. Special thanks to friend Steve U. for the alert!
For Star Wars and Marvel fans who still prefer DVDs and Blu-Rays over digital, you might not be able to shop at Amazon for your physical media needs. Unless, of course, you’re a Prime member. That’s because the online giant has made some recent Star Wars and Marvel Cinematic Universe DVD and Blu-Ray titles to be Prime exclusives. (You’ll still be able to get them from other retailers.) Engadget has the full story. Special thanks to JTA reader and friend Mike R. for the alert!
And not to neglect Amercian collectors, the UCS LEGO Millennium Falcon is IN STOCK at Amazon for $799.99 Prime!!

If you followed all our posts awhile back where we dug around and found all the upcoming The Black Series 6″ Figures including Han (Solo), Lando (Solo), Range Trooper, Tarkin, Jawa, and Death Squad Commander, we told you to add them to your amazon list. If you did, you can now place a pre-order through your list on those figures for an April 12th arrival. All are $19.99 except for Han who is $17.99. The links to these pages do not work, so only having them on your list will allow for pre-orders. Also, be aware that although they show the 40th Anniversary Jawa and DSC, they ARE the boxed versions.
UPDATE: I was able to put together a shopping list so that I could share the links with everyone to purchase them (if they don’t show up, be sure to change the filter options to purchased & unpurchased). Enjoy!
Bloomberg reports that according to insiders Amazon is looking into acquiring some of the Toys R Us stores in the USA.
Before you get your hopes up: Amazon has no interest in keeping the Toys R Us brand name, nor will Amazon most likely sell toys at these locations, but will rather use it as a showroom for its own products and maybe as a staging ground for food deliveries.
If you missed out on these figures, Amazon has them in-stock for just about retail price. Make sure to follow the links to pick up these really great figures. Be sure to check out the Research Droid Reviews as well!
