Goodness, gracious me! Bubblegate returns AGAIN! JTA Facebook reader Rob H. sends us a heartbreaking image of the Stormtrooper (Mimban) figure off of its card back while still in the bubble. I am not sure about you, but my figures arrived in terrible condition, and I have heard it’s been the consensus of many other collectors as well. Rob writes “Yes it was packed in a vinyl envelope but if this was torn off in shipping paper would have been removed from the card. It looks like it never had anything on it. I think this would come off with little effort.” Maybe your sample didn’t arrive after suffering abuse as his did, but this is a warning not to test fate and treat your own carded sample with extra tender loving care. How this figure wasn’t a general marketplace release is beyond my comprehension.

The Vintage Collection Wave 20: That's A Wrap!

Behind the scenes, I calculate various statistics on what happens here on our site, just for curiosity. And I have to say you all impressed me. We had unprecedented first-day unique visits for The Vintage Collection wave 20. It seems all the hobby needs is a strong wave of Original Trilogy characters to get everyone excited again. Anyway, thank you for the astounding traffic, and we hope you keep checking back as we add more figures to this fantastic collection. If you missed checking out our larger-than-usual galleries of Saelt-Marae, Klaatu (Skiff Guard), Princess Leia Organa (Boushh) and Scarif Stormtrooper, please be sure to check them out!

I just did it and it worked beautifully.

HURRY! TVC Mimban Stormtrooper Is BACK IN STOCK!

Hey! The TVC Mimban Stormtrooper is BACK IN STOCK! BY the way, it looks like the MSRP is set to $19.99 for this item. I don’t think it’s changing! It’s another reason why Walmart should never be allowed to sell Star Wars figures again!

If you saw our very popular post “What’s The Deal WIth The Vintage Collection’s Packaging?” you know that we addressed multiple concerns we have for the visual aesthetics of The Vintage Collection’s packaging. One of the things we discussed was the Princess Leia Organa (Boushh) figure and how Hasbro didn’t contain the figure within the orange backer area. Well, after receiving our carded samples, we discovered that Hasbro has indeed corrected it. This is one positive step forward to get the line where it needs to be. THANK YOU, Hasbro!

New Target Planogram Relegates TVC to Just One Peg

My local target has just finished their action figure reset, and it is rather sorry. They had the new archive figures in stock (I let some sixer friends know). Unfortunately, the 3 pegs of Vintage Collection figures that were present before the reset are now relegated to just 1. Fellow Council of Collectors members, what can be done? Full Story

You saw our sneak peeks at Saelt-Marae and Klaatu (Skiff Guard) figures, but tonight we have the rest of Wave 20 for you to check out! The Scarif Stormtrooper is more different than we first realized. His base armor is a little more yellow, and it appears that the dirt deco is differently placed. Princess Leia Organa (Boushh) is, of course, stellar and the best version we have of her now. Yes, that dang thermal detonator is permanently affixed to her left hand, but you’re just going to have to deal with it because the “photorealistic” technology is terrific. (Remember, these are high-resolution images, and you’re going to see every imperfection. Don’t let it taint your appreciation of her! By the way, this should have been the first wave of the relaunched The Vintage Collection. I think things would be very different right now had that been the case. Don’t forget t leave your thoughts about these figures in the comments!

How Much Space Will You Need For Jabba's Sail Barge?

Collectors in the We Backed The Barge Facebook Group were treated with a post by Hasbro’s Steve Evans. He provided a rough sketch of how much space you’ll need to display your Jabba’s Sail Barge. Special thanks to JTA reader Jamie D. for the alert!

3.75" Articulation: When is it Too Much?

This topic seems to come up fairly frequently in a Facebook Group that I’m in, and has been the topic of recent conversation on some other collecting sites too, so I wanted to share my thoughts about articulation. These thoughts come from the last conversation I had on Facebook about it about a week ago.

Personally, I am all for super articulation, but I understand that sometimes it can get in the way of a good sculpt. In this article you’ll find the reasoning behind my desire to have Hasbro give all their figures full articulation, as well as some possible advice for future production of The Vintage Collection figures.

What's The Deal With The Vintage Collection's Packaging?

Well, If we’re all honest with ourselves, The Vintage Collection hasn’t gone the way most of us wanted it to go. This criticism is not intended to undercut the incredible work Steve Evans did with the Saelt-Marae and Klaatu (Skiff Guard) figures (and the rest of the newness he’s brought to the line). In my opinion, he should be allowed to retire with how beautiful they (and the rest) turned out from most 3.75″ super-articulated action figures. Photorealistic technology begins this year for human/humanoid 3.75” figures. (We already see some elements of this technology with the Resistance figures.) All of that is well and good. But when it comes to The Vintage Collection packaging, it appears we’re not forging ahead as much as we need. If you’re a loose collector, please move along as you’ll likely find this post pedantic. (more….)

Klaatu (Skiff Guard) is another phenomenal release from Hasbro. You’re going to love him just as much as Saelt-Marae. Hasbro went above and beyond working in an incredible and inordinate amount of detail in such a tiny area. He’s loaded with articulation and comes with a perfectly replicated accessory. Yes, the helmet isn’t removable, but this shouldn’t be a deal breaker for you. You’ll never have to worry about it falling off of his head. The review is coming very shortly, but the Photo Gallery and the Collector Notes are ready to browse. Special thanks to JTA reader and friend Binary_Sun for the composited image in the gallery. Enjoy!

Saelt-Marae is the MOST-PERFECT action figure Hasbro has produced in a VERY LONG time. I am so blown away by this figure that I went above and beyond for you tonight. Firstly, the review is DONE. See why you’ll need MULTIPLES of this figure for your collection. Secondly, I was curious to see how Saelt-Marae compared to the many other Jabba’s Palace aliens Kenner and Hasbro produced throughout the years. So there are almost 50 ADDITIONAL images comparing Saelt-Marae (Yak Face) to other figures from Jabba’s Palace or the Battle of Carkoon. Please leave your thoughts in the comments in the review. I want to know what you think of this stunning figure! ENJOY!

Longtime JTA reader coreworld sends us some quick images of the figures from The Vintage Collection Yak Face wave. The new Princess Leia Organa (Boushh Disguise) looks really fantastic. But I don’t know how I feel about Klaatu (Skiff Guard) yet. Yak Face, of course, looks phenomenal. I can’t wait to get mine! Click through for coreworld’s report!
