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.

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!

Walmart Exclusive 6" Mimban Stormtrooper Hitting Again!

In what will go down as one of retail’s worst-handled exclusives of all time, more and more Walmarts are getting dumped with loads of the 6″ Stormtrooper (Mimban) figure. I have yet to see this figure in the wild, but we’re getting more reports that this is hitting once again just this week. Special thanks to JTA reader Ben H. for the image and story.

The Walmart Exclusive Kessel Mine Escape Playset Is Torturous

Sigh. After an inexplicable delay, the Walmart exclusive Kessel Mine Escape playset is now available to those that want it at Walmart.com. To date, it hasn’t arrived at any brick and mortar stores yet. It’s much more compact than the Vandor-1 Heist playset. (Vandor-1 Heist is much more enjoyable as a playset item, FYI.) Hasbro approached the Kessel Mine Escape playset all wrong. Torturing us with “painted on” droids and no-name Wookiees, it looks like the only option we have to get these fantastic characters is two-dimensionally as painted-on characters. And we get another unwanted Han Solo figure as our pack-in here. Of particular note, droid DD-BD is shown on the products’ packaging but is nowhere to be found on the actual playset. Is that a future figure coming down the pike, or did the artwork on this set change before release? Anyhow, we hope that Hasbro gets all of the characters featured on this playset released some day. They’re all beautiful characters that deserve to populate the Star Wars [Solo] line. Our review is coming soon, but you can check out a very rough gallery right now by visiting our Research Droids Review on it now. You can order this set at Walmart.com right now if you wish too.

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?

Well, we’re a bit speechless at the moment. But JTA reader Jared S. reached out to Hasbro Design Director Steve Evans in Instagram to ask him where in the world the Walmart exclusive Rey (Island Journey) figure is. Steve wrote back and told him the figure hit shelves a month or so ago! So far, JTA has only received reports of this figure hitting Canada (and only sporadically). Not ONE USA store report has come into us nor has the figure gone up for sale at Walmart’s online store if that means anything to you. Hasbro, please consider using Walmart as little as possible for the future please? We’re sure you got them the figures in time, but they’re probably sitting on them in their warehouses. What do you think folks? Will Rey (Island Journey) make her debut at ROSS or TJ Maxx in time for Christmas?

TBS6 [P3] Stormtrooper (Mimban) Hits Canadian TRU Stores

Facebook page Star Wars Black Series 6″ figures is reporting that the USA Walmart exclusive Stormtrooper (Mimban) figure is arriving at Toys R Us in Canada. Maybe it will reach USA Walmarts before Christmas. And by Christmas, I mean Christmas 2019. Once again, I have been collecting modern Star Wars for 23 years, and I have never seen distribution worse than it is right now. Poor distribution is never proven by anecdotal evidence like this of course, but as we all know this is just the tip of the iceberg. I hope there is a positive turnaround coming. If you’re interested, we reviewed this awesome figure in May and you can check it out RIGHT HERE.

We have an exciting first look sneak peek at The Vintage Collection’s Stormtrooper (Mimban) (VC123) figure. We have one word for Hasbro: BRAVA! It’s beautiful. The Stormtrooper (Mimban) figure comes with an incredible 30 points of articulation. Hasbro tooled the armor in a way that optimizes the figure’s movement. Articulation enthusiasts are going to be thrilled once they realize the poses they’ll be able to achieve thanks to how Hasbro worked in this figure’s articulation. The paint operations are excellent, and he is relatively dirty but nowhere near as dirty as the troopers in the film. Once Hasbro announced this figure, collectors began clamoring for an all-new Stormtrooper sculpt utilizing most of this figure’s parts. Well, if Hasbro does use most of this figure, we have our definitive figure. The packaging is alright. The subtitle of “Mimban” in parentheses should be BENEATH the word “Stormtrooper” and not to the right of it. Come on, Hasbro. Your graphics department should have this locked down by now. The review is coming soon, but you can check most everything else right now. Enjoy!

Literally And Legitimately.... #wheresrey?

Where in the heck is the Walmart exclusive The Vintage Collection Rey (Island Journey) (VC122) figure? It should have been out since June (Hasbro’s SDCC presentation confirmed this too), and aside from a couple of eBay auctions, there aren’t any USA store reports and anything offering a glimmer of hope to collectors that the figure is forthcoming. We also reviewed our sample in early May. Our sources have assured us that the figure is right around the corner, but why has this exclusive not arrived on time? You REALLY have to question how screwed up distribution is, or there is something very, very wrong at the warehouse level at Walmart. However, you can whet your appetite on this great figure in our Research Droids Reviews until this figure makes it to Walmart.

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!
