Black Squadron TIE Pilot - Hasbro - Legacy Collection [2] (2013)
Star Wars Collectible News, Photos, and Reviews

Tag Archives: Star Wars Episode VI: Return Of The Jedi

If you’re a The Black Series 6″ collector, have you had any luck recently securing the Gamorrean Guard at retails. With inaccurate Brickseek stock alerts and store orders filling online orders, it’s incredible that any of us have found anything at all. We have recently received new store reports of the figures on shelves, but many more of us have never seen it once. Let us know your experiences with this figure. We’re curious to know if you’ve had great success or not. I have also heard a rumor that what is out there is out there and that a re-order would need to take place for more to arrive. I cannot substantiate that rumor at all, however.

The plot thickens/drama intensifies with The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ Gamorrean Guard. Now we’re getting reports of people who successfully ordered the item online when it was in stock AND WHO DID NOT choose store pick-up that are currently receiving cancellation notices from TARGET online. We have no idea how widespread this is or how many collectors it’s affected, but it’s annoying nonetheless. We wish you continued luck in your online experience ordering this underestimated exclusive.

NEW FIGURES! The Black Series [Phase III] Stormtrooper (With Blast Accessories) provides a strong example of the disconnect between Hasbro and the adult collecting community and how distribution is wholly in the gutter. It truly is. With retail dying a grim death, is there any hope in sight for American collectors with this figure? We don’t know. But maybe you won’t care.

But That Isn't Lt. Oxixo From The Vintage Collection

The infamous tunghori listed “Lieutenant Oxixo” on his eBay store, claiming it’s the one from The Vintage Collection Imperial TIE Fighter vehicle. (Our review for that vehicle is RIGHT HERE.) However, if you look at the images, this figure has a removable helmet (something Hasbro changed with the TVC release). I am not sure if he listed old images, or if this is really the TVC figure for sale, but I found it interesting. My figure has a black head with a black chin. It’s hard to see the rest because the head is glued inside of the helmet.

It’s pretty amazing what the #backthebarge campaign has done for some of Hasbro’s older super-articulated action figures. Look at the craziness surrounding Nikto Gunner [Nysad] from the Legacy Collection on eBay.

Hardcore 3.75″ super-articulated fans ultimately stepped up to the plate to prove to Hasbro that we’re here and want more in the way of classic scale goodness. It took what we can refer to as a complex bribe to get it done, however. Hasbro forced us to speak with our wallets. And speak with our wallets we did. Let’s face it. The Khetanna is NOT an “iconic enough” vehicle to produce for the 3.75″ line. Don’t misunderstand my point here. I am THRILLED it is coming, but it was a significant risk (that felt like it wasn’t coming to fruition until the bitter end). And evidenced by the slow performance of reaching the required amount of backers, many of us were sweating bullets.

I have just recently come across a fantastic article (which was originally published in March of this year) that features 50 behind the scenes polaroid photos from the sets of Star Wars Episode VI: Return Of The Jedi. There are some tremendous images in this batch, and I highly suggest if you’re a big fan of the film to check it out.

Happy 35th Anniversary To Return Of The Jedi!

Happy 35th anniversary to Star Wars Episode VI: Return Of The Jedi! It has the greatest cast of aliens of any Star Wars film. It’s my personal favorite and I am eternally grateful for Ewoks. Thank you for a wonderful finale, George Lucas!

Han Solo in carbonite block, Boba Fett, Emperor’s Royal Guards: they’re ALL coming in the S.H. Figuarts line. Dang. Other licensees should be trembling in their shoes now.

Thank the Maker! S.H. Figuarts wins the “bravery award” for tackling Ewoks in 6″ scale. Check out this scrumptious Wicket with log accessory. I need 25 of these. Keep the OT in focus, S.H. Figuarts. The other stuff is incidental. Also included here is the Jabba The Hutt S.H. Figuarts figure. It looks fun!

Gamorrean Guard

Well, here it is folks. The glamorous Gamorrean Guard from The Black Series [Phase III] line is here, and we have a sneak first look peek at him for you. The figure is eerily similar to The Vintage Collection Gamorrean Guard (VC21) figure in that it’s not 100% perfection, but you’re not going to care. The Gamorrean Guard hits all of the sweet spots you’d expect from a premium Star Wars collectible. The paint operations are generally excellent, although he has a weird brown stripe going up his snout. Hasbro did an excellent job on the fine paint details on the figure face because they cannot utilize “photorealistic” technology on aliens as explained. The helmet is NOT removable. But this is a good thing. It stays in place as required and helps when displaying him in your collection. The soft-goods skirt is silky and luxurious. It’s an incredible fabric they’ve utilized, and you’re going to love it too. The Gamorrean Guard comes with a hinge-jointed lower jaw which is nice, but unnecessary. Just like the Admiral Ackbar figure before him, the combination of a ball-socket head with a hinge-jointed jaw severely inhibits the head movement. His “groin area” is a bit hollow. I know that sounds strange, but you’ll have to see it for yourself to understand what I mean. It feels a tad cheap, honestly. The rest of the figure and its articulation are divine. Check out our sneak peek now and be sure to come back soon for the full review!

Hasbro: please help a community out once again. This is the ONLY version of Shasa Tielon the market today. It’s a Micro Machines figure for Pete’s sake! (I thought I saw a LEGO mini figure yesterday, but it seems to have disappeared). This character is prominent both in Jabba’s palace as well as The Khetanna. So please make this figure a reality for The Vintage Collection? She would make a great release and we need more female aliens in our collections! They’re not complete without her!

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%.

If you have zero patience like the average, normal Star Wars collector, foreign sellers have both The Black Series [Phase III] Gamorrean Guard and Clone Commander Wolffe in-hand as well.

It’s remarkable how everyone who backed Jabba’s Sail Barge is preparing for its release next February by clearing out eBay. JTA reader Mike R. brought to our attention two figures in particular that have us in awe. 2004’s Star Wars “Saga” [Phase III] J’Quille and Tanus Spijek have been selling like mad on eBay recently. AT any given time you could about two dozen of them for less than $10-$15 each, maybe less. However, they’ve recently sold so strongly that it’s nearly impossible to find any active auctions for them on eBay. If you can locate them, they’re going for a pretty penny. If you recall, we created an itemized list of ROTJ characters while suggesting which one were Sail Barge-worthy, much like how Elaine determines which of her men are sponge-worthy. Well, some readers have taken notice. (You should check out those links again. The increase in prices is astounding.) Don’t wait too long to grab the figures you need to populate this first HasLab offering!
