NZ Mint: New Coin For Guards of the Empire Coin Collection

New Zealand Mint’s popular Guards of the Empire Silver Coin Collection continues for 2021 with the fearsome Knights of Ren.

The Knights of Ren were an enclave of masked warriors wielding distinct weapons for ranged and close quarter combat. They were elite, merciless enforcers of Kylo Ren’s dark will. Each one dressed all in black but wore a unique helmet and wielded their own signature weapon. They first appeared in a vision during the events of Star Wars: The Force Awakens™ and made their formal debut in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker™, the final instalment of the Skywalker saga.

I Love You.... I Know. Happy Valentine's Day!

My wife was busy with her sister yesterday doing some Star Wars photography of her own and put together a fun little photo session combining one of my favorite things with one of hers. Enjoy some Star Wars Valentines from her and JTA!

Chuck and I had a great time decorating at Christmas with his Star Wars collection.  Since we both love Star Wars, it seemed fitting that we continued it with a Valentine’s holiday that celebrates LOVE.  Thanks to a fantastic Etsy seller, JurneyShop, I was able to find adorable Star Wars themed wooden beads and candles! Nothing says love like droids, Han and Leia, stormtroopers, clone troopers, and battle droids!

Jedi Temple Archives has literally been a part of my entire married life.  From concept to fruition, I could not be prouder of my talented husband.  I may not know all the characters or what movies they are from, but I know that they are amazing…and we both love them all!

Click through for some more fun photos, and if you are trying to talk your significant other into some Star Wars decor, maybe some of the subtle Star Wars stylings of JurneyShop will convince her. 

Courage makes heroes, but trust builds friendship.

Has Walmart Figured Out The Solution For Their Exclusives?

Don’t answer that. But, it’s worth pointing out that the solution seems to be quite simple: Don’t offer pre-orders for your exclusives. When you have your exclusives ready to go, put them live on the website ready to ship! The one thing in common for all of the 2020 exclusive mishaps with ordering has been they were all pre-orders. We’ve now seen it with almost all of the 2020 exclusives: plenty of availability once they put them up for ORDER, and NOT pre-order. As of this posting, there are STILL Incinerator troopers available, after all that angst. There is still the Holiday Edition Snowtrooper available, after many pre-order cancelations. And the wave of The Clone Wars TBS figures have been in and out of stock for weeks (The Mandalorian Loyalist is currently available). The TVC Mandalorian and The Child figure set is apparently sold out, but when it WAS finally put “In Stock” last month it was available for almost 2 days, so there was plenty of time to order it. 

So, is this what is happening with their 2021 wave of The Vintage Collection figures? Collectors have been waiting and searching for these to show up for pre-order. But, perhaps they HAVE figured things out and we won’t see these listed in-stock until the time comes that they are ready to ship. In case you missed any of them, here’s the list of 2020 exclusives, some of which are still available, and some that are still fluttering in and out of stock.

Walmart has marked down the LEGO Star Wars 501st Legion Clone Troopers. It’s not a huge price drop but if you need to army build some 501st troopers and Battle Droids for about $4 each (plus the vehicles) then it helps!. Thanks to JTA reader Mike for the alert!
