I’ve been a fan of holeintheground productions’ work for quite some time. Most recently they have put a gorgeous 3.75″ scale Emperor’s throne up for sale. Thanks to Scott M. for pointing us in their direction. And we agree… A new Emperor who can sit in this throne would be wonderful!! Do you have any pieces from them in your dioramas? Let us know in the comments!

SW [TLJ] Emperor Palpatine Hits NJ Walmart!

Wow! A store report of the Star Wars [The Last Jedi] Emperor Palpatine basic figure has been made in Rebelscum’s forums. There are also other NJ Walmart sightings of this figure too. This confirms our rumor report that this figure would likely make its way out to retail in some capacity. Interesting, huh? Special thanks to JTA reader Rich K. for the news and alert! You can see Emperor Palpatine and the rest of his wave in our exclusive look in our RDRs right now!. If C’ai Threnalli and First Order Flametrooper start showing up I think Entertainment Earth has some reason to be upset!

We have a sneak peek for you of the last wave of Star Wars [The Last Jedi] Force Link figures. Although most of these cancelled figures have been saved by Entertainment Earth, this line has shown everyone that new Star Wars Entertainment is arriving at a pace that doesn’t benefit merchandising and can’t be sustained by retail. Anyway, be sure to check out C’ai Threnalli, First Order Flametrooper and the single-packed Emperor Palpatine right now in our RDRs. Reviews start Sunday!

Remember how Entertainment Earth didn’t offer the Star Wars [The Last Jedi] Emperor Palpatine Force Link figure (something to do with it being widely available in the TARGET exclusive) when the other figures were? Well, we have learned that this figure WILL be available in limited quantities through another vendor/distributor in the USA for online purchase. You should expect to hear about this shortly providing the information we secured doesn’t change. As with all rumors, take this with a grain of salt until fully confirmed. To be clear, we’re talking about the figure pictured below; not a potential repack in the Solo: A Star Wars Story toy line (if this figure is even a candidate for that line).

JTA reader Nathaniel D. sends us a report that the C’ai Threnalli wave is hitting Canadian Walmart stores too. Also, check out the paint job on Rose (First Order Disguise) he found there too.

JTA reader Paco LAG has found the latest wave of Star Wars [The Last Jedi] figures (the Threnalli wave) at his local MAXI store in Canada. Remember, the only way USA residents can get this wave is directly from Entertainment Earth, or one of their wholesale clients.

Now that we know that Entertainment Earth jumped in to save the day with last wave syndrome once again, the remaining unreleased figures are greatly diminishing. (We’re talking USA perspective here only as samples have leaked out internationally.) The only other figure missing from the planned Star Wars [The Last Jedi] assortment is the single-carded Emperor Palpatine figure. Will he be part of the Solo: A Star Wars Story line or is he canceled. In fact, will the other figures originally part of his assortment be carried -forward into the Solo: A Star Wars Story lineup? Only time will tell.

UPDATE: Look at what this figure is going for on eBay already!

Check out Emperor Palpatine, C’ai Threnalli and First Order Flametrooper. (Wouldn’t a First Order Snowtrooper have made the most sense ?)

The Healing Power Of The Original Trilogy

All of our individual retail store reports are anecdotal at best. From these experiences comes discussions so we can compare and contrast what others are seeing as well. But when it comes to the TARGET exclusive “Return Of The Jedi” three-pack, I have seen some interesting trends. In three of my local stores, this set has completely sold out. I haven’t witnessed an exclusive selling through this quickly since before The Force Awakens (and these are only 5POA figures). I can’t help but think that longtime collectors who grew up with the Original Trilogy are still a strong buying market when it comes to Hasbro toys. I constantly hear from those that think they know all about Hasbro’s stats that collectors are not a significant portion of the buying public for Star Wars toys, yet I am constantly reminded that the opposite of this is true with experiences like this. Again, in my local TARGET stores are seas of Rey (Jedi Training), Kylo Ren, Jyn Erso, Imperial AT-ACT Driver, Rogue One three-packs and a ton of Forces Of Destiny products. But the only Original Trilogy-focused set has sold through in three of my local stores. How can anything against this be argued? I think Hasbro needs to reevaluate their market. Hasbro, get more Original Trilogy stuff into stores and you’ll see sell through again like we did during the Golden Age of Collecting (2006-2012).

Found! "Return Of The Jedi" 3-Pack In Philly Area

I meant to post this on Tuesday evening, but I ran out of time because of holiday travels. My local TARGET, much to shock and surprise, had the “Return Of The Jedi” three-pack out of the shelf. As you know, we’re crazy in love with this set and are hoping Hasbro will translate all of the figures inside of it to super-articulated glory. You can check out our review of this set HERE if you haven’t checked it out yet also.

It’s beautiful! The Emperor Palpatine/Luke Skywalker/Emperor’s Royal Guard TARGET exclusive three-pack may not contain super-articulated action figures, but that doesn’t prevent it from being a fantastic multipack.

Emperor Palpatine/Luke Skywalker/Emperor's Royal Guard

Posted in Research Droids Reviews
Tags: , , , , , ,

Hasbro has produced one of the greatest 3.75″ three-packs the line has ever seen with this release. Love them or hate them, the 5POA figures included in this set represent some of the best/finest likenesses of three core Original Trilogy characters. Most of the figures in this set come with more than 5POA. The figures are NOT perfect, but the approaches made with them show that Hasbro is committed to creating products that are as faithful as possible to their onscreen counterparts. Emperor Palpatine is the best Episode VI version of the character ever. Luke Skywalker could not be more reminiscent of the 1983 figure. And, while as simple as it could be done, the Emperor’s Royal Guard is exactly what we need for  an “at attention” iteration of them. Start praying now that Hasbro takes the digital files, at the very least, of the Emperor Palpatine figure and develop a glorious The Vintage Collection version. We all have waited WAY too long for that figure. Also, be sure to come back and check out the review on Black Friday where I have a couple of cool snippets of trivia that you may or may not know about these figures. Click any image below to be taken to the early draft of the RDR.

Wow. This is an unexpected surprise! It looks like Emperor Palpatine will be coming carded separately in the Force Link basic figure line as evidenced by this eBay auction. Check out on eBay!
