JTA reader Matthew B. has found the Walgreens exclusive The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ General Veers figure. It’s time to start searching for this exclusive now! This report comes from Ohio. You can check out our review of this great figure HERE.
The reports are pouring in of collectors finding The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ Princess Leia (Bespin Escape) figure and the TARGET exclusive six-pack of 5POA figures (based on Solo: A Star Wars Story). Special thanks to JTA readers James M., Edward D., Scot G., Cybereye, and Ray M. for all of the reports and images. We posted some of those below.
Some readers doubted the authenticity of our Princess Leia (Bespin Escape) store report a couple of days ago. Well, we have another one. This time JTA reader Henry M. found the figure at his local TARGET in Southern California. Good luck to everyone!
This is quite a surprise. A JTA reader who has asked to remain anonymous has located and purchased The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ TARGET exclusive Princess Leia (Bespin Escape) figure in Los Angeles CA (At a TARGET store obviously). They’re out there, folks! BY the way, the sketch of Leia on the packaging is dreadful.
We are happy to share an international store report from Switzerland. JTA reader Phil B. can confirm that some of Hasbro’s greatest exclusives are hitting his homeland, but not through standard retailers. These include The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ Gamorrean Guard and The Vintage Collection Stormtrooper (Mimban) figures! Awesome find!
Ollie’s is apparently the dumping ground for the ton of unsold Hasbro Star Wars products that either never made it to retail or stuff that retailer gave up on after trying to sell it. JTA reader Edward D. finds something new every day he visits his local store. And the latest addition is the Walmart exclusive TBS [P3] 3.75″ AT-ST. The kicker? It’s only $10!
Wow! Five Below has Rogue One The Black Seris [Phase III] figures for $5 each. Get them before they’re gone. Those Jyns will be there forever! Special thanks to JTA reader Edward D. for the alert!
UPDATE: And in less than 10 minutes they’re all history. I guess I was wrong about Jyn. There were about 40 of each figure when I posted this.
It feels like The Vintage Collection is getting sucked into The Black Series 3.75″ vacuum. In what we thought would undoubtedly be a triumphant return, The Vintage Collection is plagued by what some might describe as significant problems. (And those problems have few solutions at this point.). Before we itemize all of its problems, it’s important to note that the rebirth of the illustrious The Vintage Collection line is something no collector should take for granted. It was in and of itself a miracle. After Hasbro gave up on the 3.75” super-articulated line and threw it out like a baby in bathwater by giving to Walmart, it felt like some divine intervention was at play that inspired Hasbro to take another chance at this fan-favorite line.

We are also getting quite a few new store reports of the TARGET exclusive TBS6 [P3] Gamorrean Guard. What’s interesting is that collectors are finding these in stores where Brickseek shows 0 units available. I have yet to see one of these in any of my local stores. Good luck if you’re still in need of this highly popular collectible!

It’s official, the Robot Kingdom revealed Han Solo (Hoth)/Princess Leia (Hoth) set is a UK exclusive. Yahoo! News has the full story! If you’re unhappy about this release getting relegated to international exclusive status, be sure to let Hasbro know on their Hasbro Pulse Instagram page. They seem to read a lot of comments on there.
UPDATE #2: A supply will be made available at Hasbro Toy Shop.
You’d have to have your head buried in the sand not to be aware of the discontent brought to fans of the Hasbro Star Wars Brand, most notably The Black Series 6″ line and The Vintage Collection line and its availability at retail (all types). To ask how we got here is something that requires time, debate and discussions that encompass a whole gamut of factors. And if we utilized all of these angles to form a proper understanding, we probably would continue to debate it. There are too many “bad” things going on these days. (more….)
JTA reader Steve U. alerts us to an interesting product page on OfficeMax.com. They have a case of The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ figures listed for $22.99 per case (which is obviously an error). But they may not be off the hook because the dimensions show are for the case size, not the individual box size. Some readers are ordering them to see if they can score a deal.
Robot Kingdom has temporarily taken down the listing to the exclusive Han Solo (Hoth Outfit) and Princess Leia (Hoth Outfit) set (there will be a new availability date supposedly). While they confirm that any previous orders placed are secured, they are leaving it off of their site until it can be put back up for pre-order. Special thanks to JTA reader and friend CSE for the alert!
How is Walmart going to be the new “Toys R Us” when they can’t even get out a single Star Wars exclusive from Hasbro? Well, maybe they won’t be able to achieve this business goal. Or maybe something will drastically change with their protocols so it can become a possibility. We have learned something shocking about one of Walmart’s exclusives and received an update on another. The answer for a third exclusive is still in limbo, however. (more….)
And they ship for only $10 too! This has to be either (A) a scam or (B) bootleg figures, correct? Either way, for this price, it feels like a deal in some way, doesn’t it? This is an FYI, not a suggestion to purchase them. Check out the auction on eBay.
Hasbro reveals The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ Dryden Vos and The Vintage Collection Captain Phasma (a rumor first revealed here at JTA MANY moons ago) at FANEXPO Canada and showcases them on their Hasbro Pulse Instagram page.

Dear Hasbro, a simple question for you: when will you see to it that the myriad of exclusives released for the Black Series or TVC will see proper distribution at regular MSRP in Europe and other territories, so that etailers don’t resort to importing from Asia themselves?
Why must international collectors pay a dummy tax for these exclusives again and again? Do you think a Black Series figure is worth $47? The sad thing is, this figure will most likely still sell out. General Veers who was $59 also sold out.
Dear readers, is the figure up for pre-order in your country too? What do you have to pay for Bespin Leia? Let us know in the comments!
