Amazon up and canceled the pre-orders for the Tatooine Skiff for many collectors a short time ago, and not they have it back up for pre-order. So, if you want to pre-order from them… again…. jump over to Amazon’s pre-order page! Thanks to JTA reader Shakes The Clone for the alert!
We have numerous reports from JTA readers that Amazon is cancelling Skiff preorders!. This is what the official email says:
Due to a lack of availability, we will not be able to obtain the following item(s) from your order:
“Star Wars The Vintage Collection – Episode VI Return of The Jedi – Jabba’S Tatooine Skiff Collectible Vehicle”
We’ve canceled the item(s) and apologize for the inconvenience. We must also apologize for the length of time it has taken us to reach this conclusion.
Either Hasbro underestimated demand or something else is going on here. Let’s hope anyone who wants a Skiff can eventually get one from any of the other etailers!
Pre-orders for the upcoming Wave 21 from The Black Series 6-Inch line have been out since they were announced at Celebration, but we wanted to remind everyone that you can still order them at Walmart.com for $17.97 each, the cheapest price so far (with free shipping). Click below for direct links if needed. These are listed to ship on July 1st.
For only $29+shipping through a third party seller… However I’m sure it will go on pre-order soon, so I recommend saving the page! Of note, Entertainment Earth is fluctuating between a May and June arrival, and some other sites show July, Amazon is not showing these to arrive till August. Somehow I find that more likely, but we shall see.
Hot Toys is gearing up for the 20th anniversary of The Phantom Menace with another sixth scale announcement. Hop on over and check out the full gallery of the Qui-Gon Jinn sixth scale figure!
UPDATE: You can now pre-order this figure over at Sideshow Collectibles.
There were a lot of new pre-orders that went live today. Some are currently sold out, but we’ve distilled them out for you all in one place so you can keep checking back:
Darkside Toys has listed the European Exclusive wave of Vintage Collection repacks for pre-order. I’ve been including these in my overall list of TVC figures being released this year, but perhaps that skewed the results a little since they are European exclusives. No images of carded samples of these figures (or the 41st Clone Trooper) have been spotted as far as I know, so hopefully we’ll see them at NY Toy Fair. If you live in a European country and missed out on these figures, here is your opportunity to get them!
Entertainment Earth has TVC wave 4 listed for pre-order, due to ship in March. Click here for the pre-order page.
Pre-orders are now open for the upcoming The Star Wars Archives: 1977-1983. Due out in December and written by Paul Duncan.
In this XXL-sized tome, George Lucas guides us through the original trilogy like never before, recounting the inspirations, experiences, and stories that created a modern monomyth. Complete with script pages, concept art, storyboards, on-set photography, and more.
