JTA is heading into the city today to begin our Toy Fair 2018 coverage! We will kick things off early tomorrow morning with LEGO, then continue on to Javits Center and finally the big Hasbro event, where we will do a live blog right here at JTA throughout the presentation (where hopefully they will reveal some great TVC news). Stay tuned as we post updates. We’ll post our galleries in real time to Facebook and post links on our front page as we get the chance. We’ll do followup coverage throught the weekend. We will aggregate everything on our portal page for a ‘one stop shop’ of all of our coverage.
The Toy Industry numbers for the 2017 year have been released. We have a summation about how well Star Wars toys performed this past year in relation to recent years. Click through for more.
Have all of you seen the Funko Dorbz Landspeeder with Luke Skywalker? Special thanks to friend Russ T. for directing my attention to it. I agree with him that it’s a must-have collectible. I think this may be one of the greatest things ever. They’re available at Shop Disney if you’re interested.
The latest Funko Pop! Smuggler’s Bounty has arrived and it is based on Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi. Click through if you’re interested in seeing the box’s contents.
Is this how the 40th anniversary celebration dies? With thunderous lackluster products? It’s hard to believe we’re already beyond the first week in November and that we’re just moments from reaching the holiday season once again. What’s more difficult to believe than this is what we received in the form of Star Wars merchandise to celebrate the monumental and once in a lifetime celebration of the 40th anniversary of Star Wars. (more….)
Hasbro! Do you see these? Please make them for us in 3.5″ SA scale? Funko knows what market is buying their stuff, so should you! Here are official PRESS RELEASE images for the the four exclusive Movie Moments sets coming from Funko.
This November, may the Funko be with you. As we march closer to The Last Jedi premiere, Walmart is helping Star Wars fans relive some of the most memorable scenes from the original trilogy through a new line of four exclusive Funko Star Wars Movie Moments collectible toys. The exclusives include:
These movie moments are exclusive to Walmart and will start to hit store shelves and Walmart.com in early November – retailing for $24.82.
I had nearly forgotten about these Walmart Exclusive 40th Anniversary Funko Pop sets that we reported on previously in June, but JTA reader Justin sends us his find at his local walmart. After doing some digging, I found that these have just hit a few stores near me in NJ as well. Might be time to hit your Walmart if you’re a Pop fan! (or Ewok fan!). They are out of stock online, but here is the Ewok Set and Bespin Set in case you want to keep track!
Walmart Exclusive Resistance BB Unit Pop is in stock. It doesn’t have a picture up, but it’s only $6.25! Grab it while you can! They also have all the other TLJ Pop for less than $9.
If you’re a fan of Pop!’s, then you probably will want to get your hands on this TIE Fighter with TIE Pilot. Just like the Target Exclusive Darth Vader with TIE, this TIE Fighter sits on the dome of the Death Star. It’s also on sale for $23.19 at Things From Another World!
JTA reader Bryan L. alerts us to an upcoming TARGET ad at TotallyTarget.com which not only confirms TARGET’s already known participation in Force Friday II, but also that they’ll be offering similar discount coupons like they did with the original Force Friday event. Check it out!
The convention exclusive Bodhi Pop! is available to order on TARGET.com! special thanks to JTA reader Duane K. for the alert!
The “droid themed” Smuggler’s Bounty Box has arrived! Be sure to click through if you’re interested in seeing the box’s contents! If you want to know what next month’s box is, be sure to visit their site!
If you’re a Pop! collector (or even if you’re not) you definitely want to add this Darth Vader In His Tie to your collection. I haven’t been able to find it in stores yet and I really love the way they did this Pop! with the top of the Death Star as the base. Thanks to JTA Reader Eric for the heads up!
We found a couple of new exclusives at TARGET today including this adorable Tusken Raider And Bantha Galactic Plushies set for $29.99. We had to walk away because it almost ended up in our cart. There was also a new Hasbro role play set which we forgot the name of already, but it was $49.99.
The hard to locate 7th Sister Pop! Vinyl figure is IN STOCK at Walmart.com. Special thanks to JTA reader Kyle for the alert!
