If you were collecting the modern Star Wars toy line “back in the day,” you’ll remember the exciting storyline of Shadows Of The Empire, a series of events that took place in between The Empire Strikes Back and Return Of The Jedi. During the multimedia event, Kenner produced a line of toys in support of the story, and it went over hugely with collectors. So we ask today. Is there any interest to see these characters update in The Vintage Collection and The Black Series 6″ lines? Let us know in the comments.

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.

Here’s another instant army of 3.75″ The Black Series [Phase III] Scarif stormtroopers for you. These will also probably go pretty quick.
We have an exclusive FIRST LOOK at The Black Series [Phase III] Walgreens exclusive General Veers 6″ figure. The figure is incredible. It heavily borrows parts from 2018’s TBS6 [P3] Grand Moff Tarkin (63) figure, but has plenty of newness as well to keep things interesting. This is a must-have figure as far as we’re concerned. And it’s probably one of worst choices to be a retailer exclusive after Zuckuss. This has “mainstream market” written all over it. We have a complete review and photo gallery for you to check out. We’d love you to leave your own thoughts about this figure in the comments at the bottom of the review! Click the images below to be taken to the full review.

You’d be silly to ignore the many things about the modern state of collecting that are devastating the line. Examples like collectors waiting as if they’re vultures for Hasbro stuff to go on clearance at Walmart and TARGET. And seeing Toys R Us’ merchandise that was clearanced out by competitors MONTHS ago sit and collect dusts on shelves are just some of the issues that don’t go away. Granted, Toys R Us has been foolish. They never were competitive with promotional prices and their clearance timing was the worst. But, see the image below. While anecdotal, it paints a broad picture of what is wrong with the Star Wars line. I could beat a dead horse here, but it’s clear to say that there is too much focus on certain Star Wars Entertainment that Star Wars fans aren’t supporting and buying. I have similar pile-ups at my local Toys R Us stores, albeit different products, but the same principles apply. Until the Hasbro line gets back to basics, we’re going to continue seeing these trends. And with Toys R Us gone, it means that either less volume will be produced, or the remaining retailers will be overstocked next. And I don’t think Walmart and TARGET will ever buy another bridge again when it comes to Star Wars. Their current stock levels are so low now that it’s almost impossible to find anything new there any way (except for the same repeated figures that shouldn’t have been reissued). It seems the Star Wars line is being forced into online oblivion. I am at a loss how this Titanic can be turned around. Special thanks to JTA Facebook reader Todd L. for the image!
