Hasbro's Steve Evans Replacement Announced At StarWars.com

StarWars.com reveals that Hasbro’s Sarah Carroll is the next Senior Brand Marketing Manager of Star Wars at Hasbro. Whether or not Ms. Carroll is a direct replacement for Steve Evans is just speculation to be clear.

Update: Photo of Ms. Carroll added

Update 2: Steve Evans remarked in a Vintage Collection Facebook group that Sarah Carroll will NOT be involved with design, she will be responsible for marketing only! So she’s not a replacement for Steve!

Hasbro Toy Shop Will Still Sell Star Wars And OTHER Products

If you’ve seen this message….

“At Hasbro, we strive to provide our customers with the best possible experience with our portfolio brands. As a valued customer, we wanted to let you know that our brand websites have changed and will no longer sell products directly. That said, you can still access your account and check existing orders using your login at Hasbro Toy Shop. Please contact us at customerservice@hasbrotoyshop.com or 1-800-408-0052 with any questions.”

…. there is no need for concern. It only applies to their “in-house’ brands and those that have their own websites with a shop (like My Little Pony’s website for example). It doesn’t have any effect on Star Wars or other product already sold on Hasbro Toy Shop. Or, that’s what I was directly told by my source at Hasbro Toy Shop. Should anything develop with Star Wars, I will be sure to relay the message.

Has Star Wars Lost It's Magic? [Spoiler: No]

YouTube Channel HelloGreedo released a short but informative video earlier today. He talks about that Star Wars magic we felt as kids and if it’s all gone now. In my opinion he makes some great points here. I believe it’s time to step back a bit and to take in the whole picture. We can get lost in debates about the handling of Luke in The Last Jedi, the distribution of toys, whether or not Kathleen Kennedy is the worst studio president ever, when in fact none of that matters that much or not at all even to the new generation. Which doesn’t mean we shouldn’t debate these things, we definitely should, but we shouldn’t think that this is something of utmost importance to everyone. So check out that short 4 minute video and maybe it will make you feel better about Star Wars again. Thanks to JTA regular Matthew C. for the tip! As always, leave your own thoughts in the comments!

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.

New loose images of The Vintage Collection Imperial TIE Fighter have surfaced on social media and we’re disappointed to report that the Imperial TIE Fighter Pilot is the same old 2008 The Legacy Collection Evolutions sculpt. Specifically, it looks like the Lieutenant Oxixio figure from 2011’s SW [SOTDS] Battle Over Endor (1 of 2) set. Check out the gallery of new images on our Facebook page! Special thanks to JTA reader Matthew C. for the news!

May The 12-Backs Be With You

We have just completed our intense look at the first series of vintage Kenner Star Wars figures: the 12-Backs. Because May is typically a Star Wars month and 2018 is the 40th anniversary that vintage Kenner Star Wars figures arrived at retail, we felt it was the perfect time to start vintage Kenner reviews. (Oh, and let us not forget The Vintage Collection’s return is another huge motivator of this run too.) Each new month, we will focus on a new series of figures where we’ll finish the complete vintage Kenner run in December with the 1985 The Power Of The Force line. Already, they are receiving wonderful feedback and tons of you are checking them out. But we want more of your stories, so please leave them in our comments. Thanks for your participation thus far, and we hope more of you leave your vintage Kenner experiences with us in the comments going forward! Thank you for making this a success for us. We put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into them and we were hoping that they’d go over well with our readers. They seem to have. And for that we’re grateful.
