Starkiller (Galen Marek) (#05) - Hasbro - The Black Series [Phase II] (2014)
Star Wars Collectible News, Photos, and Reviews

Tag Archives: Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi

JTA reader German O. is visiting his friend in NJ and they found this at his friend’s local Walmart store. Because of a toxic mix including the inability to understand what a street date is in today’s day and age, Disney’s obnoxiously obscene territorial control over their licensees, and utter confusion about what is actually new in Star Wars, this particular Walmart has placed new The Last Jedi vehicles in the clearance aisle and marked them down to $19 (their normal MSRP is $39.99). It is unclear however if German was able to purchase it and walk out of the store with it, even at a clearance price. Doubtful. They probably told them they were recalled because of lead paint… by the store manager no less. I don’t know, I am just assuming that’s what happened.

Where Are All Of Those TBS6 Product Leaks?

A little birdie just told us that The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ figures due for Force Friday II (whatever characters they may be) have FINALLY shipped and are en route to retail. As you know, there has been much speculation on why these case assortments have not leaked yet (on eBay and even brick and mortar). Here is your answer. It looks as if everyone might have an equal chance now since Hasbro intentionally delayed their shipment to prevent…. you know…. as much abuse as possible.

Is He Or Isn't He In The Last Jedi?

There’s an awful lot of Yoda merchandise showing up in The Last Jedi line look packaging isn’t there? Between this latest store find and the rumor report of ours which alluded that you should be seeing Yoda and Obi-Wan Kenobi merchandise in the toy line (as well as Yakface.com breached action figure assortments), it seems more and more that somehow, somewhere Yoda will make a cameo in some way. Then again, he may not at all. It should be interesting to see what happens, huh? Special thanks to Crime Sweeper for this store report.

So Episode VIII Is A Reboot Of The Empire Strikes Back?

Jedi Master and Jedi trainee on a far-off distant location interacting with one another. Check. Interwoven story lines of the struggles of the freedom fighters against an evil empire as they continue to battle for freedom. Check. A squad of heroes escape madness for a while as they head to a different glamorous planet. Check. No, we’re not talking about Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back despite sounding just like it. These are actual plot points for Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi. Rian Johnson said Episode VIII isn’t a reboot of Episode V, but the latest article at EW.com seems to contradict this quite a bit. Click through for more.

Rey To Save Luke Skywalker From His Own Darkness?

This deal is getting worse all the time. This is a broken man. One who would have preferred to stay lost. And he feels the same way about that lightsaber. “The fact that Luke says, ‘I only know one truth. It’s time for the Jedi to end…’ I mean, that’s a pretty amazing statement for someone who was the symbol of hope and optimism in the original films,” Mark Hamill tells EW. Your comments please. Check out the full story at Entertainment Weekly.

Could The Last Jedi Be The Last Hurrah For Collectors?

Gosh. I will be upfront with you all and say that my interest in Episode VIII and The Last Jedi toy line (as well as the TLJ and TFA focused figures from The Black Series [Phase III] line) is about a microcosm of what the average Disney Star Wars zealot feels about the new films and how Star Wars is the “best it’s ever been.” I have been hoping for the best, because I need a new starting point for the Sequel Trilogy since I ripped The Force Awakens out of my own personal Star Wars timeline. However, I am getting a little nervous. (more….)

What's The Deal With NO TBS6 Figure Leaks Yet?

With the sea of leaks of products from The Last Jedi line, it’s pretty interesting that NO The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ figures have leaked out yet, isn’t it? Expect those leaks to hit closer to Force Friday II (which we imagine could be quite imminent). #themoreyouknow

We previously reported on an upcoming Marvel comic series featuring Captain Phasma and there is also a new  Phasma novel due out on Sept 1st. This seems to be an awful lot of story coming for a character who had nearly as much screen time as the Nightwatcher Worm, but she is supposed to be utilized much more in The Last Jedi and both Gwendoline Christie and Rian Johnson have seen to that by creating her new backstory. More after the jump.
