So now, we want our readers to check out their suggestions and continue to add to the list of character ideas for this great and rich period of Star Wars.

What 6" Figures Would Make A Great Greatest Hits Assortment?

A while ago, we suggested that there needed to be a “greatest hits” line for The Black Series 6″ line. Figures like Anakin Skywalker and others command hefty premiums on the aftermarket. In recent Hasbro Q&As Hasbro has also admitted that it’s something they’d like to do to get those older figures out again. Because we’re seeing them tomorrow, we thought we’d compile a list based on your own wants and desires. So, in the comments, let Hasbro know what 6″ figures should be part of a “greatest hits” assortment. Remember, only previously released action figures count in this tally.

We all heard Design Director Steve Evans from Hasbro state that he has a good idea of what characters he would choose if Hasbro were to make an anniversary line of 6″ The Black Series figures for Episode V. If you haven’t, it’s from our Hasbro Q&A where we teamed up with Victoria’s Cantina for SDCC. Be sure to check it out. (more….)

As you know, longtime collectors of the modern line are in desperate need for a modern update to the puppet version of Sy Snootles from Return Of The Jedi. But now that The Vintage Collection’s back, why not give us updates to the whole band in glorious Kenner inspired packaging now? Perhaps redo Max Rebo so that he better resembles how the creature really is thanks to Pablo Hildalgo, (stubby lower body). We think that since Hasbro is thinking more outside of the box that this might make for a great 2018 store exclusive somewhere, so can you please make it happen?

We’re continuing to keep the conversation going! If you listened to the Hasbro Q&A (which was a team effort between JTA and Victoria’s Cantina – check it out HERE), you clearly remember Hasbro saying something that was as loud as clashing cymbals. It was also very heartwarming to fans of The Vintage Collection. When asked about working aliens/patrons from A New Hope (Chalmun’s Cantina) and Return Of The Jedi (Jabba’s Palace/skiff guards) into the planning of TVC they said “Absolutely, that’s kind of one of the main reasons we brought [The Vintage Collection] back. It is.”. (more….)

Are You A Good Hasbro, Or A Bad Hasbro?

I have had time to digest Hasbro’s presentation during San Diego Comic Con and I have distilled what concerns me and what elates me. While a 6” Maz Kanata is literally the VERY last thing I would ever want in my Star Wars collection personally, I have to admit that the rest of the presentation was Hasbro’s best in years. It certainly was far from perfection, but it’s a start and I want to be hopeful as I can. That being said, I do have great concerns. Adam Pawlus has already expressed his concern that The Vintage Collection smells like it might be dead on arrival. And in all honesty, part of me has similar reservations. But my hope outweighs the negatives at the moment. In an effort to keep thinking positively, I needed to itemize the pros and cons of what Hasbro has planned thus far. So, let’s talk about what will work and what absolutely won’t work so that we can clean up the negatives. Hasbro, please listen to this advising. We really know what’s best for The Vintage Collection. (more….)

It seems that Hasbro is in a position with The Black Series 6″ line that they will be playing forever “catch up” with it. There was already such a vast cast of characters “out there” before the line even began in 2013 that trying to represent even a diverse range of everything is proving overwhelming for them. (more….)

There are ten (10) specific things I have been obsessing about that I want to see get done when the return of The Vintage Collection comes this Spring 2018. (A lot of it has to do with the original Kenner line.) While it would be wise for all of us to not count our chickens before they hatch, TVC’s return is likely to be a scaled down version of what we encountered between 2010 through parts of 2013. However, there is no reason why Hasbro can’t make most of their existing tooling budgets, parking lots, checklists and brainstorming to help us complete modern releases of the figures we grew up with as kids. Doing this will benefit everyone involved in the Hasbro/collecting community universe. While this unofficial Top 10 list of mine is really “all over the place’ with regards to what it covers, you will notice that it hones in on one repeated topic: getting those original “Collect All 92” out/completed in this line and offers suggestions on how to do it. Please click through and be sure to leave your own two cents in our comments. We have to keep the conversations going about The Vintage Collection. It’s the most important thing Hasbro has done for us in over half a decade.

Wow, this one almost bypassed us! We don’t hang out on social media so we don’t know how many people out there are finding this, but it appears that the Darth Revan wave is making its way to Walmart. JTA reader and friend CS E. saw a bump in his local Walmart inventory of The Black Series [Phase III] figures so he went to check out what the store got. What he found was the Darth Revan wave. (The Darth Revan included was the new one though (cape tuck)). The AT-AT Driver was also the Driver and not Pilot. So this is clearly a new-old case. And they were 9.84… not bad. It looks like this wave might fall under “too much too late”. Sad. Be sure to let us know if you’re finally finding this wave at your local Walmart. This may be one of the few store reports that this wave is hitting there. I haven’t heard otherwise.

If you recall, we informally polled our readers asking what currently existing 3.75″ super-articulated action figures they’d like to see re-released or added for the very first time to The Vintage Collection when it returns this Spring 2018. These figures would receive NO UPDATES or REFRESHES as they would be STRAIGHT REPACKS. (We’ll get to easy retools/kit-bashes at another time.) Now we’ve loosely compiled the results and came up with a solid list of 125 frequently requested characters. Click through for more….
