We have just completed our intense look at the first series of vintage Kenner Star Wars figures: the 12-Backs. Because May is typically a Star Wars month and 2018 is the 40th anniversary that vintage Kenner Star Wars figures arrived at retail, we felt it was the perfect time to start vintage Kenner reviews. (Oh, and let us not forget The Vintage Collection’s return is another huge motivator of this run too.) Each new month, we will focus on a new series of figures where we’ll finish the complete vintage Kenner run in December with the 1985 The Power Of The Force line. Already, they are receiving wonderful feedback and tons of you are checking them out. But we want more of your stories, so please leave them in our comments. Thanks for your participation thus far, and we hope more of you leave your vintage Kenner experiences with us in the comments going forward! Thank you for making this a success for us. We put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into them and we were hoping that they’d go over well with our readers. They seem to have. And for that we’re grateful.

Well, it goes without saying that 5POA is generally NOT OK, but Hasbro is making it easier and easier to refute that argument. The lastest Force Link 2.0 wave 2 figures are showing once again that this format is getting better and better and the sculpts (and their seamlessness), likeness, features and articulation are getting infinitely better when compared to how they were when this format “restarted in 2013. Princess Leia Organa is the best modern version of the vintage Kenner Leia Organa (Hoth Outfit) we have now. Sorry, it pains me to say it too, but it’s true. The proportions and likeness are stunning. The new weapon is perfect, and the details are unprecedented for this version of Princess Leia Organa in action figure form. Aside from some sloppy paint operations, this figure is gorgeous. Somethin’s coming over the latest Solo figure. Moloch’s got a secret. The figure has a “hidden” removable mask and reveals a cool character that resembles a skesis from The Dark Crystal. This character also doesn’t have feet and has a wormlike body (details shown in our photo gallery). Check out these first look sneak peeks and come back when the reviews go live SOON!

A Reddit user has created a fantastic version of Princess Leia Organa from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story using artificial intelligence. What do you think? Some are hailing it as superior. GrayScott.com has the full story. Special thanks to the divine Lady Ferry for the article alert!
If you have been having your Forces Of Destiny Princess Leia Organa and R2-D2 set continually cancelled by ToysRUs.com, we have learned right from the source that this retailer is not getting stock. (We’re not entirely sure if that means just onlint or both online and brick and mortar. We just received word that it’s not coming.) If you’re waiting for it, you should probably order it from other sources like GameStop or Entertainment Earth.
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.
Entertainment Weekly continued their coverage of The Last Jedi by focusing on Leia’s role in the film, her relationship with Oscar Isaac’s Poe Dameron, and Carrie Fisher’s legacy. Click through for more!

Sideshow Collectibles also reveals a new Darth Vader, Princess Leia Organa (Combat Poncho), and Luke Skywalker (Battle Poncho) one-sixth scale figures! My oh my! They also list an Episode VII C-3PO, a new Stormtrooper and other great stuff. Check it all out!
UPDATE: We have been alerted to the fact that this is actually the Rogue One Darth Vader. It’s possible that they intended to showcase a different version of him instead. (Thanks Jayson!)
If you still need to pick up a Luke, Leia, or Obi-Wan, Kmart has them for $16.99. If you haven’t already, you can sign up for Kmarts shoppers points and typically get $10 off of your order right away. That could be some good savings on those figures or the First Order 6″ TIE Fighter which is listed at $64.40. They have R2-D2 listed as in stock and you can add it to your cart, but it’s a cruel joke. It doesn’t let you check out. Don’t forget, free shipping on orders over $49
UPDATE: Figures are actually out of stock. As soon as you go to your cart there is an error message. Sorry for the false alarm, we’re just trying to help everyone out!
Check out the 2017 SDCC exclusive Holographic Princess Leia Collector’s Gallery Statue. And, if you didn’t have a chance to pick one up at Celebration Orlando this year, you have another chance to pick up the 2017 Convention Exclusive Han Solo McQuarrie Concept Mini Bust at SDCC.
Kmart has ALL of The Black Series 3.75″ 40th Anniversary Titanium figures on sale for $12.74. Not a bad price!
The eighth episode of Forces of Destiny was released late last night. The latest installment found Princess Leia and Sabine trying to escape IG-88. Although it was great to see IG-88 show up since he’s an underutilized character, this was probably my least favorite episode so far. Check it out and judge for yourself!
Today’s episode is one that I personally love. It involves our dear Princess on Hoth and of course, Wampas! The Wampas in Echo Base was one of my all-time favorite deleted scenes, so it’s nice to see a bit more of that in this short, even though this is prior to ESB when they’re setting up Echo Base. In this episode, Wampas break into echo base while Chewie, Leia, and R2 try to deal with it! I’m enjoying these much more than I originally anticipated.
Drugs, including heroin and cocaine, were found in Carrie’s body during her autopsy. USA Today has the full (and very upsetting) story.

It’s been difficult for Star Wars fans to accept the loss of Carrie Fisher, but now her home and over 1,500 personal items that belonged to Carrie and her mother Debbie are being auctioned off. This may be a once in a lifetime chance to get some one-of-a-kind items that would be the envy of many collectors across the globe including a life-size C-3PO and bronze Yoda statue.
