When you look at the overwhelming amount of unsold Hasbro Star Wars products arriving at discount chains like ROSS and Ollie’s, you have to wonder how bad things indeed are with the brand. JTA reader Michael D> send us images which are alarming because they show how much UNSOLD wave 1 The Vintage Collection figures (the worst wave of Star Wars figures of all time) and The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ figure and vehicles (which people brag about waiting for clearance on) there are. I am flabbergasted that there were solid case packs of the TVC Sergeant Jyn Erso figure. That makes ZERO sense. And look at the overbearing volume of 6″ stuff arriving as well (photos by clicking through). No wonder we haven’t seen the Yak Face wave arrive at any retail location yet. Frightening.

Once again, The Vintage Collection Jabba’s Palace Adventure Playset is killing it in the best way possible for Walmart, and they’ve sold out of them online. At the moment, the brick and mortar level is THE ONLY way to secure this item. The good news? Walmart is doing everything possible to get in one more order for online purchases to help meet the product’s demand. The goal is to place an order for holiday availability, but if that doesn’t work out, it could arrive at the beginning of 2020. Stay tuned for any new updates on this development. Disclaimer: as warehouse stock adjudicates and balances itself, you may see a few units arrive in stock, but that’s all that’s happening. Thank you for supporting this product as vigorously as you have been, it makes the case for future playsets strong.

Variety has an exclusive scoop about the Cassian Andor Disney+ series on their website. They have learned that Tony Gilroy was hired by Lucasfilm to write and direct the pilot episode of the yet untitled Cassian Andor series, Gilroy is also said to direct a few more episodes. Gilroy will not be the showrunner, this is still supposed to be Stephen Schiff (he was previously the co-producer for The Americans). You may certainly remember Gilroy as the person who was hired to salvage Rogue One to great results. His work on Rogue One was so substantial that he received a writing credi. Gilroy is not a Star Wars fan, but that may not be a bad thing at all, he certainly knew how to fix the very messy state Rogue One was reportedly in. No release date for the Cassian Andor series is known, but it’s supposed to be some time in 2021.

Hasbro, we have to chat. Thank you for providing us definitive updates of the Luke Skywalker (Yavin) and Princess Leia Organa (Yavin) figures. You did a fantastic job on them, and the enhancements you made to the figures are appreciated. But did you realize you produced these characters as they appeared at the very end of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope? You forgot to update these characters in their outfits at the BEGINNING of the film. We made it easy for you. We provided images of the figures you neglected to update. Click through for more!

We’ve come across information about the Disney Droid Factory Build A Droid attraction. Apparently, protocol droids may have not gone over as well as the astromech droids, and at the moment, there are no plans to add more protocol droids into the line. In fact, the Droid Factory protocol droids will be going away soon. The estimate is that the theme parks have a couple of months yet before the stock sells through. Rumored but not wholly confirmed is the idea that Disney Parks will return the popular astromech droids with a whole new collection shortly. It also unconfirmed if future collections will fall under the Droid Depot banner moving forward, but I imagine that’s a given at this point. If we learn more, we’ll be sure to share it with you. Check out the entire collection RIGHT HERE in our Research Droids Reviews.
