Hasbro: this isn’t an attack. We’re not even making fun of you, so this isn’t meant to pick you apart. We are actually just trying to understand your logic and game plan for the 3.75″ Force Link line. Yes, we understand that in order for Jyn Erso to be Force Link compatible that you had to put her back into production and add a chip into the figure. But why would you choose *her* when Hasbro Toy Shop’s eBay store can’t get rid of the Rogue One version at $2.69? Do you really think that the Star Wars buying market is waiting to add her into their collections…. again and at $7.99 to boot? If you could explain how a character likes this gets considered for a “repack” into the basic figure line, we would appreciate the answer. This isn’t unprecedented ad other characters have received this kind of preferential treatment too. We’re really just curious. THANK YOU!
With all of the focus on Force Friday II stuff that was released, we wanted to remind you that Entertainment Earth salvaged two items that could have gone the way of the dinosaurs. You can order essentially limitless amounts of Fenn Rau and the Bistan/Shoretrooper Captain Two-Packs set, both from the Rogue One line! Both items still show a December delivery!
Things From Another World has some of the newest Comic Trades up for pre-order.

And if you haven’t yet, be sure to check out the RDR’s Comic Reviews!
Hasbro Toy Shop’s eBay store has added new stock, but they have also placed many pieces of their current stock on significant discount. There are a ton of figures marked down to the $2 to $3 range and they even have some 6″ figure for less than $10 each. Check it out, you may find something you’re looking for and if you spend $14.99 it all ships for FREE!
Hasbro Toy Shop has marked down the Imperial AT-ACT for a low $99.99 if you’re interested. Special thanks to JTA reader Gregory B. for the alert!
I felt like this one deserved its own post. The huge AT-ACT Walker is on clearance at Target for only $101! That’s right, $101 right now! I can live with that price (not to mention free shipping).
It’s just so sad to see this sometimes. But if you’re looking for cheap Star Wars figures you can head to Five Below where they have Rogue One Two-Packs for about the price of a single figure. No more 5POA Hasbro. Now let’s get those TVC figures out there! Special thanks to JTA reader Michael O. for the news!
BigBadToyStore has the ever-popular Rapid Fire AT-ACT up for pre-order for a mere $99. That is a pretty low price considering it was $299.99 originally.
Well, from the various Hasbro interactions at SDCC this year, it seems that you can kiss away any chance of getting Fenn Rau (for a while at least). Just look at this loose one and how much it sold for today on eBay. It’s absolute insanity!
Hasbro – do you see this? Please assuage the collecting community’s panic by confirming that Fenn Rau is coming in The Last Jedi basic figure assortment on Force Friday. We will burn our manssierres until we get him! #wheresfennrau
Amazon is NOW MATCHING the Best Buy price for the Jedha Revolt four-pack. Special thanks to JTA reader and friend Steve U. for sharing the news!
JTA reader and Facebook friend Casey M. sends us proof that some unsold Rogue One products have been peddled to ROSS outlet stores. If you’re interested in these it might be worth your while to check out your local ROSS!
It’s probably a good bet that collectors of the 3.75″ The Last Jedi line will see Hasbro double their efforts when it comes to articulation in the line. (more….)
If you’re still looking to grab the Jedha Revolt 4-pack, Amazon has them listed at $17.99. Or if you prefer, Walmart has it for $18.75. I will say, it is a nice little 4-pack especially with the inclusion of Saw. So if you’ve been waiting, it may be time to pull the trigger. Special thanks to JTA reader Logan for bringing this to our attention!
It might be time to start really paying attention to Hasbro Toy Shop’s eBay store. They’ve taken new markdowns on products that have been full price until now, including TBS6 figures. It will be interesting to see how low these will go….
In case you weren’t aware, HasbroToyShop.com is running many of the same deals on their eBay store and from what it appears to us a little more variety. Be sure to check it out. Special thanks to JTA reader John B. for the reminder!
JTA regular Mark directs our attention to an interesting turn of events on a much wanted action figure. The elusive Rogue One (Star Wars: Rebels) Fenn Rau that once showed as “This item is no longer available” has just changed its status online at Walmart to “Coming Soon”. As you know, we CANNOT get a straight answer on this figure from official sources. Can this product page update serve as any glimmer of hope, a sign or guarantee that it’s still coming? Probably not, but we still believe that this currently hard-to-find figure will see future better availability – we just don’t know when exactly.
UPDATE: It DID say “Coming Soon” earlier (see attached screen shot as evidence), but it’s now showing as “No Longer Available”. I guess our hope is shot down now.
Toys R Us is having a Buy 2 Get the 3rd Free sale on almost everything Star Wars. I’m not sure if this is Online Only, but maybe you can snag a few things you’ve been passing up on.
Hasbro Toy Shop’s eBay store still has some great deals and they start as low as $1.50. Be sure to browse the deals as you never know what you might find for dirt cheap!
Check out the correspondence chain JTA reader Peter V. received from Hasbro customer service regarding his plight trying to find Fenn Rau from the Rogue One line. Click the thumbnail below for more.
What’s the deal with Fenn Rau? You can’t really find him cheaper than $40 on eBay. And so far in the USA he’s the sole figure in the last Rogue One wave that hasn’t been offered as a solid case pack. We have reached out to Hasbro TWICE about this figure and as of this post have received no answer regarding his status. It’s almost as if they don’t mind that you pay this much for him. My gut is that he will be carried forward into The Last Jedi line (by their non-response), but I don’t have complete confidence on that. If you click below, you will see the desperation for this figure as so many have no qualms about paying this much per figure. Special thanks to JTA reader Gman G. for alerting us to this obscene auction on eBay.
The Captain Cassian Andor (Jedha) 12-Inch Figure from the Rogue One line is decent, but we wonder if any of you will even care. Check it out in our Research Droids Reviews today.

The Shoretrooper 12-Inch Figure from the Rogue One line is nice, but we wonder if any of you will see it at retail. (We hope you will because it’s nice.)
