Hey Hasbro! An actor from Return Of The Jedi emailed us and let us know you’re not making enough aliens from Jabba’s palace. The neglect stems from the lack of merchandise and you can be a big part in fixing that. Can you change that for them (and of course us?) (more….)

Another Vintage Kenner Item: 2019 Calendar

There is an “interesting” calendar on Amazon which features vintage Kenner action figures. Similar to the Five Below poster we reported about recently, most of the figures are incomplete. What’s more, some have been placed in scenes that are screen-inaccurate. The makers of these products should probably check out our vintage Kenner archives for accuracy and inspiration. Anyway, check it out. Special thanks to JTA reader Jason S. for alerting us to this item.
