More The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ figures have arrived at Five Below locations across the country. New figures include C-3PO (Resistance Base) and Scarif Stormtrooper Squad Leader. We have “heard” that more of these case assortments will be arriving this week, so be sure to check out your local store. On a related note, we just joked about Star Wars [The Last Jedi] unsold product landing at Five Below in about two years. But they’ve arrived now. You can get $29.99 vehicles for $5 if you’re so inclined.

The Hollywood Reporter recently posted an article about a study that examined tweets directed at Rian Johnson, following the release of The Last Jedi. And the study finds that more than half of all the negative tweets are not by real fans but are either politically motivated by the alt-right or come from Russia in order to sow dissent. I did read the actual paper and if you click through I will provide some additional info.

The only thing worse than another Maz Kanata figure is a holographic one. Or is it? (Hey, at least we get to see what the Force Link 2.0 chip looks like now.) See why the former Toys R Us exclusive (in the USA) Star Wars [Solo] Kylo Ren/Holographic Maz Kanata/Rey (Island Journey)/First Order Snowtrooper/Captain Poe Dameron multipack, now an Entertainment Earth exclusive, may not be a hit.

Well, take this as anecdotal evidence, or with a grain of salt as you wish, but Rey (Island Journey) is NEVER reaching Walmart stores until one major thing transpires…. like getting her UPC into their computers. This leaves even less hope for the TVC Stormtrooper (Mimban) figure too. A JTA reader who asked to remain anonymous performed an investigation and found out some disturbing news. I can reveal this. I showed him the post from Steve at Hasbro saying the Rey figures shipped months ago. I then showed him screenshots I took of the figure on eBay. Most importantly, a picture of the UPC. He looked it up and said it was not even in their system. I asked him to elaborate, and he basically said without a number they recognize, it will never be moved to the stores. Is anyone else over this complete cluster of a mess? This is retailing basics, and Hasbro’s most significant retail partner is squandering the line right before our eyes. It’s maddening at this point. Hasbro, please read this. Is there anything you can do to help?

Check out our sneak peek of the still-officially-unannounced The Black Series [Phase III] Captain Phasma (Quicksilver Baton) Canadian Toys R Us exclusive figure. It remains to be seen how this figure will be offered in the USA. Captain Phasma (Quicksilver Baton) would have been a lot more exciting if she was released instead of the straight repack that was part of The Last Jedi product launch push. The figure has a fantastic new head sculpt and the accessories are simple but lovely. If this were just a couple years ago, we could have expected a tweaked version of her in the basic assortment, but for one reason or another, Hasbro decides these make for great store exclusives (that many of us can never acquire). Anyway, the full review is coming soon, but you can check out the gallery and notes now.

Admittedly, there has been little to no reason for me to go on toy runs for longer than I can remember at this point, but I did need something at Walmart today (much to my chagrin) and stopped by the toy aisle. I couldn’t believe what I foubnd. Would you like shelf space with your Resistance Tech Rose figures, Walmart? Curious, I stopped at two more local stores where I witnessed these same overbearing pileups. If you look closely, you will also find Rey figures on significant discount too. Hasbro needs to plan future case assortments carefully, and choose the best characters that will appeal to their customer base. Why must this constantly feel like wash, rinse and repeat with every new Disney Star Wars film release?
