More TFA Five Below Finds

JTA reader and friend Michael O. alerts us to another Five Below find. I haven’t heard these particular figures hitting this retail collection, but I may have just forgotten. Regardless, this was the first time Michael has ever seen this figures at retail! Sad!

Amazon is trying hard to get rid of their abundance of stock of the Kylo Ren (Unmasked) six-inch figure. This figure has dropped so low it’s now relegated as an add-on item. Click here for the $4.99 TBS6 Kylo Ren…

JTA Canadian reader Jamie D. sends us a remarkable store report. Do you remember the Amazon exclusive First Order Legion boxed set with seven figures? They have now shown up at Toys R Us in Canada for only $29.99 (original MSRP on Amazon was $47.99). As you know, these nearly go for $100 on Amazon today, so this is quite a surprising store find. Let us know if you see these in your local stores. I wonder why Amazon didn’t sell through their stock because once they sold out they never replenished and collectors wanted these. And I also wonder if American collectors will see this at their TRU stores. Weird. On a related note, I wonder if this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to unsold TFA toys….

The Ongoing Diversity Debate Finally Comes To An End....

….or does it? Ever since Episode VII was announced and we found out there was a female lead AND a black Stormtrooper, there was constant debates and some outright horrible statements being made. Then Disney put yet ANOTHER female in the lead role of their next Star Wars film; Rogue One. This has sparked many more debates on whether Emperor Kennedy is only looking to cast strong female leads, but now that is over! (maybe..) DigitalSpy published an article that finally put the ongoing diversity issue in terms the industry can understand….diverse casts make all-around more money! Read all about this here and let us know your thoughts in the comments below. (this should be fun)

DISCLAIMER: The term “Emperor Kennedy” is meant to be tongue-in-cheek and is not meant to be taken as negative views towards the diversity article. This is just a loving term I coined for humor.

Want That Rey Token For Your Monopoly?

If you’re trying to get your hands on the Rey Token that is missing from Monopoly, you need only jump through a few hoops. JTA Reader Derek shows us what he needed to do to acquire this piece from Hasbro. Click the image to see what is required. I guess they’re keeping track of who wants the piece since Age & Gender of the person using the product is part of the test!

The Chicago Tribune has posted an article sure to upset many claiming that “insufficient interest” has prevented Hasbro from including the Monolopy “Rey” game piece inside of the package. Oh boy, this is going to be an interesting discussion. Special thanks to JTA reader Mark P. via our friends at for alerting us to this breaking news development! FYI, there is a silver lining, be sure to read the article.

We Need A Major Beast From The Force Awakens

Every Star Wars film has produced a toy line that has featured a “villain” beast to date, save for The Force Awakens. While opinions of Star Wars fans (and collectors) vary greatly on these beasts (some love them, some loathe them), it would make sense to us if Hasbro produced the Rathtar for the 3.75″ line to balance things out a bit more; especially since we have the Guavian Enforcer and Tasu Leech (in 3.75″ scale)…. It seems like a potentially missed opportunity, no?
