TVC Power Droid On Amazon For Prime!

If you still need it, the TVC Power Droid is also available on Amazon for Prime. Buy multiples. This figure has to sell out. It’s the only way we’ll continue to get the Kenner 96. Special thanks to friend Mario M. for the alert! By the way, how cool is it that this production sample has a 77 inscribed on it? Too bad it wasn’t 79!

Yawn. Hasbro made us wait so long for the Phase I Clone Trooper Lieutenant that we don’t even care about it anymore. Besides, the tooling is so old and tired now that the articulation system is terrible by today’s standards. Also, why did they give the packaging red color flashes? They used “yellow” for The Saga Collection for Episode II, and it made the most sense. What are they going to do for The Phantom Menace now? (more….)

Today we revisit 4-LOM. 4-LOM wasn’t part of the Trilogo line. We’re showing one of the foreign Return Of The Jedi card back instead. 4-LOM was a late release in 1982 because it was first offered as the line’s mail-away figure that year. See the full card art and additional notes by revisiting 1982’s THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK 4-LOM figure HERE.

Among things like a new Lego set or Funko Pops you can also get the brand new, just revealed Black Series Credit Collection. You can get The Mandalorian, Cara Dune, IG-11, Heavy Mandalorian and Death Trooper. They are all repaints and made to look like the concept art you could see in the Mandalorian credits. And yes, all of these are exclusives! They all come on vintage style cardbacks and also with a credit chip. Click through to see the pre-order links!

As you know, Ollie’s stores got multiple case assortments of The Vintage Collection in enough quantity to make a big deal about it and posted the news in their ad the week they went for sale. If you’re a collector of The Vintage Collection, you know that MANY of the figures that arrived at Ollie’s never made their way to brick and mortar stores like TARGET and WALMART. A lot of collectors saw the Rogue One Stormtrooper for the first time at Ollie’s, and on clearance to boot. One of the case boxes from the same Hasbro distribution center went to Ollie’s. And then we have another picture of a Walmart case from Walmart with the local label pulled back for comparison. What we discovered is not unexpected, but still disconcerting. It provides proof of how frustrating the current state of distribution is. Click through for more.

JTA reader and friend Scot G. pointed out to me yesterday that the back of the Jango Fett Toybox figure shows two upcoming releases which look to be the standard Episode IV Stormtrooper and the Mandalorian!

We finally get a 6″ Jango Fett figure with Photo Real deco AND the Mitronomon Z-6 jetpack. Does this excite you? Not only is this figure sourced to the Star Wars: Bounty Hunter video game, but it’s also sourced to Attack Of The Clones. (It should have been released along with Kit Fisto and Plo Koon,) (more….)

Hasbro Brings Carbonized Figures To The Vintage Collection

Carbonization is coming to The Vintage Collection. Of all the things they could do for The Vintage Collection, copying The Black Series 6″ line it seems is where Hasbro is inspired. This image comes from Kylo Collectors’ Instagram page. Special thanks to JTA reader Craig P. for the alert.
