I wish Chris Swanski from Bantha Skull would refrain from ordering his personal products during peak The Vintage Collection exclusive ordering times because Walmart can only deal with so much at a time. One of our readers, Aaron P., accidentally received Chris’ shipment of “personal items” instead of The Vintage Collection’s Din Djarin, and Aaron lost out on Din Djarin because of this mixed up shipment. Chris, text me and we’ll figure out how to get these to you. But please don’t order this stuff during another TVC ordering frenzy. Click through for JTA reader Aaron P.’s experience.

There is going to be a lot of barking and clapping for The Vintage Collection Tantive IV Corridor playset. It could have been a whole lot better. And the pack-in figure enrages us. Hasbro is still playing the scam game of making you buy “one half for the price of one whole.” It should be two for the price of one instead. (A more expanded gallery is coming soon!) (more….)

The Mandalorian Season Finale Tops The Streaming Ratings

I talked about the Nielsen streaming ratings for the USA before. The Mandalorian season 2 fares really well and has been in the top 10 throughout its second season, rising as high as number 3 on the list, behind two Netflix shows. The season 2 finale which featured the return of Luke Skywalker however improves on the already good ratings by becoming the first non Netflix show ever to top Nielsen’s streaming charts. Beating “The Office” in the number 2 spot, which is still the best rated show available on Netflix.

Of course Nielsen only measures ratings in the US, so we don’t know exactly how things are worldwide. Netflix has a lot more subscribers and is available in more countries. However, it is impressive that a Disney+ show can beat any of the shows on Netflix in the US, since Netflix has more subscribers. This is yet another testament to the huge success of The Mandalorian and of course the immense popularity of Luke Skywalker. Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni really are Lucasfilm’s MVPs. Now if only Hasbro capitalized on the success of the show and announced a ton of Mandalorian action figures very soon…

You can find the full list of the top streaming shows on the Hollywood Reporter website.

It seems this exclusive Din Djarin saga continues, and this time we get Din Djarin & The Child listed in-stock on a new page. So, if you’ve been scouting out the old page, it still says out of stock. Perhaps this has something to do with the pin, perhaps not. Get it while you can!

UPDATE: As mentioned in our comments, 3 of the 4 Carbonized figures are also still available:

Should We Concede Defeat With Walmart Pre-orders?

Something’s gotta give. This is a mere sampling of the many items from my many orders with Walmart that have been canceled without warning. The Black Series 6″ figures, The Vintage Collection figures, and Walmart exclusives have all gotten canceled. I must have over 30 cancellation emails from Walmart now. The question is whose fault is this? It’s a question we’ve never received an honest answer to from anyone.

Now that will shake things up for Star Wars gamers quite a bit! After years of exclusivity EA will lose its exclusive license! EA will continue developing Star Wars games, but Ubisoft will now develop an open world Star Wars game. So I suppose we can expect something in the vein of Assassin’s Creed or Watch Dogs to come to Star Wars. The new game will be developed with the help of Lucasfilm Games! Nothing else is really known about the game, but more details will certainly follow!

So, what do you think about this big news for Star Wars games? EA has a mixed track record when it comes to Star Wars games, Fallen Order received praise, but its game mechanics felt somewhat outdated and it was not an open world game, EA scrapped various open world games in the past and was unwilling to develop a huge open world game for Star Wars. Now it seems Lucasfilm finally wants a piece of the open world (single player) gaming market, a genre that is still immensenly popular despite EA’s statements from a few years ago that people no longer like these kind of games. Red Dead Redemption 2m Ghost of Tsushima or even the somewhat maligned Cyberpunk 2077, plus all the Assassin’s Creed titles etc prove that there is much demand for open world games. Of course it’s also possible, that the open world game will be an online game, i.e. without a real offline single player campaign, the exact wording Ubisoft uses is “story driven open world game”. We will have to wait for more details to emerge!

Walmart’s systems seem to be in total disarray. For those that got their order canceled, the Din Djarin & The Child is now back up for pre-order! Could this be some strange issue with the VC number running change?

UPDATE #1: This is now going in and out of stock. If you see it in stock, don’t hesitate!
UPDATE #2: If you use your mobile device and go through the app, it still shows in stock and will let you order. The browser version shows out of stock.

UPDATE 1/15: Back up for another chance!

Meh. Some will really like the Incinerator Trooper from The Vintage Collection. But we had higher hopes for it. Maybe it’s because we can’t find this figure anywhere that we cannot fully appreciate or enjoy it? (more….)

We’ve received at least a half dozen reports, and seen several reports on social media, that Walmart has been sending out cancelation notices for the TVC exclusive Din Djarin and the Child set. Keep an eye on your inbox and lets us know in the comments if yours was canceled, and when you placed your pre-order. There were several rounds of pre-orders that went up for this exclusive, and all of the emails we received all pre-ordered on the first day.
