There have been a number of Luke Skywalker action figures in the 1/12 scale since the Black Series, later followed by S.H.Figuarts, entered the market in 2013. In fact, the vast majority of versions of Luke that appear on screen have been realized by now, with only a few notable versions missing. This is perhaps the perfect time to look back and reflect upon the many Luke Skywalkers we have gotten over the years in the 6-inch scale. Do we have an ultimate 6-inch Luke Skywalker? And what is your favorite 6-inch Luke Skywalker? So click through for an overview and dicussion of 1/12 scale Luke Skywalker action figures, both Hasbro and SHF.

Hasbro’s choices for The Vintage Collection “Fan Channel” repack waves have been less than stellar, and if judging by the last assortment, utterly confusing. They may claim these figures are not for “us” but that’s not realistic. Let’s help them make the wisest repack choices. Click through for directions.

Hasbro, Let's Play A Fun Game For One Whole Product Year

OK Hasbro, let’s play a game. And it’s probably going to come across as “let’s make a deal.” There is a lot of conspiracy theory, inconsistency, and no follow-through when it comes to The Vintage Collection versus The Black Series line. But one thing is certain. Collectors of super-articulated 3.75″ action figures are growing increasingly frustrated, to the point of weariness. You’ve admitted that the interest in The Vintage Collection and the excitement expressed by collectors has overwhelmed you. You, in so many words, said that you were impressed by the community’s passion in the line and that you’d be doing more for us as time moved forward. That hasn’t come to pass, unfortunately. So, here is what we’re proposing. How about, for one whole product year, you produce whatever you do for The Black Series [Phase IV] 6-inch line for The Vintage Collection 3.75-inch line? (more…)

After just hearing about these “pipeline” figures in a recent Hasbro livestream, we’re rather surprised to see prototypes already! They look incredible! Head over to our friends at Banthaskull.com for more pictures! I’m very excited for these releases. IG-11 being all-new is shocking in a really good way. Let us know what you think in the comments!

The Vintage Collection Incinerator Trooper is STILL Available

This post contains affiliate links. At no additional cost to you, JTA may receive a commission if you click and make a purchase.

It’s hard to believe after all the drama the Incinerator Trooper went through that you can still buy this troop building figure at retail. The quantity limit is still set to 2 per purchase, but you can combine him with some other figures to still get the free shipping, such as what’s left of the Carbonized Collection. And, if you like to play the lottery, you can always try the figure simply listed as Star Wars-lucas Star Wars Vintage Figures.

Hasbro Star Wars Is An Online Exclusive

It’s almost as if Hasbro doesn’t realize that there is a hit series on Disney+ called The Mandalorian. It’s also almost as if Hasbro doesn’t want their products front and center at Big Box retail. And if we’re honest, it’s almost as if there isn’t a Star Wars toy line at all anymore when it comes to visiting the toy aisle physical retail shops. So why does Hasbro need brick-and-mortar again?

The Walmart exclusive The Vintage Collection Din Djarin & The Child has hit Walmart stores ON CLEARANCE. JTA reader Nathan B. found them for $10 each in the clearance aisle. He writes “I’m in Columbia Missouri. Longtime reader/lurker. They have 50 Din and Child The Vintage Collection for $10. Was so unbelievable to see a shelf like this I thought I would share.” Once again, can The Vintage Collection get a fair shake on anything?

Review: Clone Commander Cody - TBSA - Six Inch Figure

A breathtaking new video has popped up on YouTube, from May 21, 1980 — the day of The Empire Strikes Back’s release — of a Toys R Us featuring industry people as well as customers and employees talking about the Star Wars Kenner toy line. It is one of the most expansive and detailed videos I’ve seen from this time period in Star Wars collecting. I highly suggest checking it out. Special thanks to JTA reader Paul V. for the alert to this beautiful video. Seatbelt yourself in for some precious 1980 special effects! (more….)
