Review: Princess Leia Organa (Boushh) - TVC - VC134

It’s improved thanks to “photorealistic” technology! We’re talking about Princess Leia Organa (Boushh)!

Klaatu (Skiff Guard) is another phenomenal release from Hasbro. You’re going to love him just as much as Saelt-Marae. Hasbro went above and beyond working in an incredible and inordinate amount of detail in such a tiny area. He’s loaded with articulation and comes with a perfectly replicated accessory. Yes, the helmet isn’t removable, but this shouldn’t be a deal breaker for you. You’ll never have to worry about it falling off of his head. The review is coming very shortly, but the Photo Gallery and the Collector Notes are ready to browse. Special thanks to JTA reader and friend Binary_Sun for the composited image in the gallery. Enjoy!

Saelt-Marae is the MOST-PERFECT action figure Hasbro has produced in a VERY LONG time. I am so blown away by this figure that I went above and beyond for you tonight. Firstly, the review is DONE. See why you’ll need MULTIPLES of this figure for your collection. Secondly, I was curious to see how Saelt-Marae compared to the many other Jabba’s Palace aliens Kenner and Hasbro produced throughout the years. So there are almost 50 ADDITIONAL images comparing Saelt-Marae (Yak Face) to other figures from Jabba’s Palace or the Battle of Carkoon. Please leave your thoughts in the comments in the review. I want to know what you think of this stunning figure! ENJOY!

#populatethebarge - How Is It Going?

Back in March, we provided you with a guide on the best way to fill your Jabba’s Sail Barge when it arrives early next year. If you have done your part to #backthebarge, we thought we’d provide something to you that many requested to us. We did some homework and compiled a list of characters you’ll need (that have been produced by Hasbro as an action figure already) that you’ll need with your Sail Barge. So we now wnat to know. How is it going? Are you almost caught up? How many more do you need? Click through to see a comprehensive list of existing Hasbro 3.75″ action figures required to effectively populate Jabba’s Sail Barge (The Khetanna) when it arrives. Some of these figures cost nearly as much as the #backthebarge does! (more….)

As per HasLab’s Exclusive Update #1, Hasbro added additional areas to the rails on Jabba’s Sail Barge to accept the existing cannon that came with both 2009’s LC Nikto Gunner [Nysad] (BD23) and 2013’s TBS [P1] Vizam (#17) figures, something JTA specifcially asked about at Toy Fair this year. As expected, the figures are selling out on the aftermarket so collectors can secure these accessories now. There are still a few on eBay (and Amazon), so you might want to see if you can secure one too. Some of the eBay aucions are completely untouchable, but you can find some loose sample for a great deal. It’s always possible that Hasbro can reissue either figure in The Vintage Collection, but why take the risk??

It’s remarkable how everyone who backed Jabba’s Sail Barge is preparing for its release next February by clearing out eBay. JTA reader Mike R. brought to our attention two figures in particular that have us in awe. 2004’s Star Wars “Saga” [Phase III] J’Quille and Tanus Spijek have been selling like mad on eBay recently. AT any given time you could about two dozen of them for less than $10-$15 each, maybe less. However, they’ve recently sold so strongly that it’s nearly impossible to find any active auctions for them on eBay. If you can locate them, they’re going for a pretty penny. If you recall, we created an itemized list of ROTJ characters while suggesting which one were Sail Barge-worthy, much like how Elaine determines which of her men are sponge-worthy. Well, some readers have taken notice. (You should check out those links again. The increase in prices is astounding.) Don’t wait too long to grab the figures you need to populate this first HasLab offering!

Do TBS6 Collectors Want Cantina/Jabba's Palace Characters?

Hasbro would be the first to admit this, but they have really been in an urgent state of “playing catch-up” ever since the inception of The Black Series 6″ line. It’s really no one’s fault at Hasbro. When you start a line from the beginning, you’re already “x” years behind to anything else that has already been produced. It must be quite an undertaking trying to organize a vast cast of characters which make sense for this line that contains so many characters while including new Star Wars Entertainment. Trying to please everyone in this scale is proving to be quite overwhelming in some regards. (more….)
