Review: Captain Cassian Andor - TVC - VC130

While nice on a The Vintage Collection card back, Captain Cassian Andor needs more than repackaging to be an acceptable action figure. Learn more in our Research Droids Reviews today!

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.

Just In Time For Solo: Rogue One The Pitch Meeting

YouTube Channel Screen Rant is clearly following the Hasbro playbook for perfectly timed releases and released their Rogue One pitch meeting video today!

And it’s really funny. I think we all need some fun now, so check it out! And don’t forget, it’s a parody, it’s meant to be lighthearted. Which doesn’t mean the video doesn’t have a kernel of truth in it. But see for yourself!

You have to wonder if the voting has been hacked when The Last Jedi is beating out The Empire Strikes Back in a poll where StarWars.com is soliciting fan feedback for the best Star Wars film. Here we go again! Special thanks to our friends at Bantha Skull for alerting us to this May the 4th poll. We didn’t even know it existed!

NOTE: In case the results change after posting this article, The Last Jedi was leading the result with 30%. The Empire Strikes Back was the next highest film at 26%.

Disney Star Wars Movie Statistics

The MPAA report for 2017 was released yesterday. And like each year the report lists some informative statistics about the age of moviegoers, their ethnicity and overall gender share. Disney Star Wars is, among other things, about inclusivity, gender equality and Kathleen Kennedy’s own goal is to bring more girls and women on board the franchise. The MPAA reports since 2015 (when The Force Awakens was released) shed some light on how Lucasfilm’s strategy to win new fan groups has worked. Click through to learn more!

Let The Past Die: The End Of A Star Wars Tradition

Supervising sound editor Matthew Wood revealed to ABC News that the decision has been made to move on from the famous Wilhelm scream, which was absent from Rogue One and The Last Jedi. The distinctive scream was named by legendary sound designer Ben Burtt and it was included in the first seven films in the Star Wars saga. Woods commented, “We’re letting the past die, as Kylo Ren says.” He also revealed that they have begun to put a new signature scream into current and upcoming films. This seems to be part of a larger shift in philosophy, as Ben Burtt himself is no longer involved with the Star Wars franchise. Vanity Fair asked Burtt about his exclusion from Disney’s Star Wars productions and commented, “I was just never consulted or hired to do any of them. No one’s ever told me why.” Burtt concluded by saying, “You know that line in Indiana Jones, ‘It belongs in a museum’? That’s me. I’m a museum piece.” Click here to read the fill interview with Burtt.
