TARGET Is On To The Trickery!

You likely remember when we reported about a plethora of Jyn Erso and Captain Cassian Andor TBS6 figures arriving at TARGET unexpectedly and in vast numbers. With your help, we figured out that the Five Below stock (both online and in stores) was purchased for $5 each and then people used their TARGET receipts to return the $5 figures with receipts of new figures they paid full price for. Well, it appears TARGET is onto the bait and switch. They’ve covered up the UPCs and created a unique UPC on the clearance sticker to ensure these never get returned to the store again. Acts like this will change return policies for the worse and could make some products ineligible for return for all of us. Let’s not make Hasbro’s bad case assortment decisions worse with this type of clearance life cycle that seemingly is without end. We’ll be seeing Jun and Cassian in stores until who knows when.

The Vintage Collection Wave 20: That's A Wrap!

Behind the scenes, I calculate various statistics on what happens here on our site, just for curiosity. And I have to say you all impressed me. We had unprecedented first-day unique visits for The Vintage Collection wave 20. It seems all the hobby needs is a strong wave of Original Trilogy characters to get everyone excited again. Anyway, thank you for the astounding traffic, and we hope you keep checking back as we add more figures to this fantastic collection. If you missed checking out our larger-than-usual galleries of Saelt-Marae, Klaatu (Skiff Guard), Princess Leia Organa (Boushh) and Scarif Stormtrooper, please be sure to check them out!

Ollie's Receives Rogue One Jedha Revolt Set

In case you have an Ollie’s store near you, JTA reader Scott lets us know that they’re getting “hoards” of the Rogue One Jedha Revolt set. This is ultimately a shame because this was a multipack done right. Anyway, if you’re interested, now you know.

Review: Imperial Assault Tank Driver - TVC - VC126

NEW FIGURES! The Vintage Collection’s Imperial Assault Tank Driver is an essential release. But why didn’t Hasbro add three of him to the wave 2 case assortment? It makes no sense. At least there are solid case packs of him available. Check out our complete analysis of this figure in our Research Droids Reviews today!

They may have just gone up for pre-order a couple of days ago, but thanks to our fantastic suppliers, Jedi Temple Archives has an exclusive sneak peek of wave 18 of The Vintage Collection for you. Check out the all-new sculpts of Enfys Nest, Imperial Assault Tank Driver and Han Solo (from Solo: A Star Wars Story). Enfys Nest turned out beautifully. Hasbro succeeded in mixing soft-goods with molded details, creating an action figure that is seamless as it is gorgeous. She comes with interchangeable gauntlets (both opened and closed) and her signature battle staff. Imperial Assault Tank Driver is incredible. It’s painful to think it has taken almost two full years to get a 3.75″ super-articulated version of this character after 6″ versions and 5POA versions, but it is finally here. He fits inside of the Imperial Combat Assault Tank wonderfully. Han Solo is the bummer of the wave. He visually looks no better than the Force Link 2.0 pack-in figure. Of course, the figure has a ton of articulation, but it doesn’t alleviate how terrible his facial paint operations are. Thank the Maker that “photorealistic” technology is on the way to save The Vintage Collection. At least we hope it will save the day. Anyway, click through to check out this great wave of figures. The case assortment is riddled with repacks, but we have to remember that this is a Hasbro Star Wars grouping of figures. Why wouldn’t they overload us with repetitive figures we don’t want or need? Of particular interest, Hasbro eliminated the tape, and the bubble’s heat seal looks like it’s on the card for good this time. Time will tell. (P.S. Imperial Death Trooper is forthcoming.)

I have an exclusive sneak peek of wave 17 (wave 28) of The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ line! Han Solo (Bespin) is about what we all expected. He looks great, but there is nothing extraordinary about him. Samples will vary from one another, so be sure to find one with good eyes. Our sample looks good, but we think he could look a tad better. He is loaded with articulation and favors Harrison Ford very much. The Rebel Trooper is awesome, but some things about him bug us. Firstly, I don’t like the name. This character is a Rebel Fleet Trooper. Also, this sculpt is unequivocally Lieutenant Pello Scrambas, so you can’t army build this guy. (Hasbro – please make alternate head sculpts for this body!) Collectors will be thrilled to know that Hasbro added “butterfly” joints to the shoulders which make it possible for him to cross his arms and reach his arms behind his back. Also, I plead ignorance. I don’t know if he comes with the “Death Star plans” or some type of “communicator.” I am especially partial to Tobias Beckett. It looks just like Woody Harrelson, and the detail is fantastic. His costume is perfection and it’s one of the greatest figures based on Solo: A Star Wars Story Hasbro has produced to date. Check out these three new figures in our Research Droids Reviews RIGHT NOW! Full reviews are coming soon!!

It’s the first all-new vehicle of the new TVC era! Check out our advanced sneak peek of the brand-spanking-new Imperial Combat Assault Tank from The Vintage Collection. Hasbro hit this vehicle out of the park. The amount of distinctive tooling Hasbro gave this vehicle is nothing short of impressive. The final paint operations are excellent, although we feel they could have been bettered in a few areas. The only negative is that we don’t have Turbo Tank pilots to outfit the vehicle yet. The Imperial Combat Assault Tank has real rubber tread that functions. The interior cockpit is astounding. And the extras here are so beautiful; you’re going to be overwhelmed. We’re especially taken with the Kyber crystal containers and cases. There is a ton of Aurebesh to translate on this vehicle, so have fun figuring it out! Yes, the price is steep, but this is a robust and weighty vehicle LOADED with detail. Our full photo gallery is complete, and the write up is coming in just a couple of days. In the meantime, please enjoy the gallery and other things like Collector Notes! Click HERE to check it out.

Hasbro Rogue One AT-ACT For Less Than $45

If you’re fortunate to have a liquidated Toys R Us store still open near you, you might want to check out the latets discounts. My local store had a half dozen Rogue One AT-ACTS in stock and with all of the promotions and discounts in effect it came down to $44.99 before taxes. It was certainly worth that price to secure the exclusive figures that will never be re-released from it.
