An Intentional Move Away From 5POA?

It’s probably a good bet that collectors of the 3.75″ The Last Jedi line will see Hasbro double their efforts when it comes to articulation in the line. (more….)

While it’s a safe bet that we will still see action figures with five points of articulation, we have learned that Hasbro will be making a concerted effort for when it makes sense to the character to add somewhere within 6-8 points of articulation. While this action isn’t necessarily an unprecedented event in the simply-articulated action figure format (think of Admiral Ackbar and Unkar Plutt  from The Force Awakes line and Darth Vader from the Rogue One line), JTA has learned that the standard 5POA format HAS NOT gone over as well as Hasbro had hoped. It’s a significant part of the reason that we’re seeing The Vintage Collection front and center again in the mainstream market. Stay tuned for more details as they emerge.
