We know that there are THREE (3) waves of The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ line in 2017 from Force Friday II onward. Jaina Solo (Legends) and Resistance Tech Rose make up this third wave, but wouldn’t it be great if there was one more to round out the year? (more….)

Well this is interesting! Toys R Us has updated their Forces Of Destiny section to include the Princess Leia Organa/R2-D2 two-pack as their latest exclusive. If you recall, this set was a recently revealed in Brazil at the Disney Expo there, and our own sources hinted this would be coming to Toys R Us this holiday season. It looks like that rumor has panned out. It cannot be pre-ordered yet, but they do have a December 6th availability date listed. Thanks to JTA readers Mike M. and Brian K. for the alerts!

UPDATE: It looks like other online shops have this for pre-order too. Perhaps TRU is confused about having this as their exclusive, but our sources have confirmed this too at one point. Maybe it has since changed.

Are Star Wars Figure Thefts At An All-Time High?

This is really starting to grate on me. As someone who has been collecting the modern Star Wars line since 1995 (and the vintage line for years before that), I have to admit that I have never seen more instances of figure thefts and figure swapping than I have from 2015 onward. It’s ALWAYS been an issue, but the frequency is very depressing now. Clearly, the new Star Wars films have brought a ton of new collectors, but it seems to have also brought a facet of the unscrupulous which are really cramping the style of this hobby and ruining for other peer collectors AND THE KIDS. But it doesn’t just end here. The attitude I see is just as disconcerting. I belong to quite a few TBS Facebook groups and the frequent entitlement I see (by multiple collectors – certainly not all) that this is funny to “stick it to the man” and “Hasbro can afford this” just flabbergasts me. I guess it’s just a sign of the times. Anyway, please take this article as “don’t do this because it’s morally wrong” and please encourage others to not do this either. The image on the left is mine and the image on the right is courtesy of JTA reader Jeremy W.

SW [TLJ] Force Link Starter Set Gets A Price Reduction

We and others like our readers have noticed a price reduction for the Force Link Starter Set. We’re wondering how widespread this is and if you’ve seen this as well in your area. This is certainly a step in the right direction as $29.99 was just not a fair MSRP for this. Special thanks to General Hux for the image.

So, Where Are Those 40th Anniversary Wave 2 Figures?

You saw our friendly warning here months ago about about the 40th Anniversary The Black Series 6″ wave 2 figures; that they were completely sold out. Various interviews with Hasbro at SDCC this years allowed some to believe that they were shipping at that time, but we were cautious to not be eager about this news. But as you know, no units arrived at retail and many people’s pre-orders weren’t fulfilled and remain open or have been canceled. Now Hasbro answers Star Wars Action News’ question (from their HASCON interview) that they’ve all been shipped. Now, there could be some in transit somewhere, but it looks like these figures are finally all gone. We believe they’ve always been gone for months now (and actually have sources that confirmed this). If you need them, check eBay quickly because there is an even stronger chance now with this new confirmation that you’ll never see them again… unless Hasbro orders a new batch to be produced. As you can see from the listings, some figures go for obscene amounts.

Sneak Peek! TBS6 Clone Captain Rex - HASCON Exclusive!

We just got back from New England so of course the first thing we do is generate a sneak peek gallery of the HASCON exclusive Clone Captain Rex The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ figure. Simply stated, it’s a great release. Hasbro did a fine job on replicating this character in realistic style and including functional parts while providing collectors with a fantastic likeness. Older parts have been reused for Clone Captain Rex, but he has also been given plenty of new parts too. The paint job is fantastic and the deco is evenly placed and nicely applied. The accessories are generous and sized appropriately. The review is coming soon, but you can check out our 40-image gallery and basic Collector Notes now. Enjoy!
