The Three And Three Quarter Awakens; Was Jabba's Sail Barge The Catalyst?

Citing any store report (or even multiple store reports) is anecdotal at best. But if you combine store reports like the two examples shown in the image above with the near-instant sellout of the Walmart exclusive TVC Jabba’s Palace online. Or the impossibility of finding Saelt-Marae in stock online for MSRP. Or the binge-purchasing of the all-new Rogue One Imperial Stormtrooper, you’d have to have your head buried in the sand to not see the excitement and fever for all things 3.75″ super-articulated. I believe the HasLab exclusive Jabba’s Sail Barge was the catalyst to spark this interest. (more….)


Do you see similar patterns in your area? Is it possible that The Vintage Collection’s return is finally exceeding many collectors’ expectations, and things are getting back to the way they used to be? My hope for this is running high at the moment. Hasbro MUST keep these fantastic exclusives and general release products coming. They cannot slow this momentum. That’s how the longtime collectors work.

More recently, I have been watching two Father’s Day displays at two of my local TARGET stores carefully. The Retro Collection and Han Solo (Stormtrooper) figures came and went without a trace, or have meager stock availability. And The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ Luke Skywalker (Stormtrooper Escape) is beginning to collect on shelves. What has been your experience?
