May The 12-Backs Be With You

We have just completed our intense look at the first series of vintage Kenner Star Wars figures: the 12-Backs. Because May is typically a Star Wars month and 2018 is the 40th anniversary that vintage Kenner Star Wars figures arrived at retail, we felt it was the perfect time to start vintage Kenner reviews. (Oh, and let us not forget The Vintage Collection’s return is another huge motivator of this run too.) Each new month, we will focus on a new series of figures where we’ll finish the complete vintage Kenner run in December with the 1985 The Power Of The Force line. Already, they are receiving wonderful feedback and tons of you are checking them out. But we want more of your stories, so please leave them in our comments. Thanks for your participation thus far, and we hope more of you leave your vintage Kenner experiences with us in the comments going forward! Thank you for making this a success for us. We put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into them and we were hoping that they’d go over well with our readers. They seem to have. And for that we’re grateful.

Another Gamestop Blunder For The Books

JTA Reader Alexander F. sends us in this report of his latest purchase from Gamestop.com. He originally ordered two Artoo-Detoo 40th Anniversary Black Series figures, but when they showed up, he got a big surprise. He opened the large box to find two Supreme Leader Snoke (throne) instead of the Artoo’s. The receipt even says Artoo 40th Anniversary. This seems to happen more than it should. Have any of you had a similar mistake happen? Let us know in the comments below!

TBS [SW40] Wave 1 Found At Toys R Us

Today a friend of mine managed to find wave 1 of the 40th Anniversary at his local Toys R Us in Amherst, NY. He said the entire wave was there, but he only bought himself a Artoo-Detoo and a Han Solo. Are these still being found in their distribution centers or are these coming from somewhere else? Have you seen these pop up in your TRU recently? Thanks to JTA reader and friend Charlie for the info.
