Vintage Kenner RDRs Redux: Barada - POTF - 1985

Review: D-O/R5-2JE/R6-LE5/R2-SHP - Droid Factory

The D-O/R5-2JE/R6-LE5/R2-SHP Droid Factory four-pack concentrates on four new droids from Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker. Most of them are quite nice, and it’s the only way to secure a 3.75″ version of D-O at the moment. Check this set out in our Research Droids Reviews today!

Vintage Kenner RDRs Redux: Amanaman - POTF - 1985

The Black Series [Phase III] Chewbacca & C-3PO Amazon exclusive is IN STOCK with Next Day delivery fro Prime members!

Posted in Uncategorized

In anticipation of the release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, InsuretheGap.com committed themselves to working out the cost to insure the famous ships from the films. Turns out, it would cost Han Solo a lot more than anticipated to insure the Millennium Falcon!

All 8 ships have been given a profile, considering weight, size and other factors. Combined with pilot/owner’s profiles, InsuretheGap.com was able to create an algorithm to work out the annual insurance cost.

  • The Millennium Falcon – $544,339
  • X-34 Landspeeder – $714
  • Slave I – $222,740

Some of the finest 12″ figures produced by Hasbro came early in the Kenner/Hasbro Star Wars line. Figrin D’an (With Kloo Horn) (Cantina Band) is an example of Hasbro’s best. It still holds up excellently today. Check the figure out in our Research Droids Reviews today!

Shill Reviews? Or Just Part Of The Way New Toys Are Influenced?

After discovering all of the Walmart discounts today, I checked out a few products to check out the reviews. I couldn’t help but notice that there is a disclaimer on most reviews that notes that the reviews were written when the customer was visiting Hasbro and that the “review was collected as part of a promotion.” Also of note, the reviews are very general and not too specific. Does anyone else find this odd? Is this a new technique of which I am not aware? Read through them all. Many have a weird voice/tone to them.

Well, after the $10 Five Below finds, the $16.99 Kids Warehouse Discount, and now Ollie’s $19.99 special, (as well as multiple unmentioned flash-sales on Amazon), I think it’s safe to say that The Vintage Collection Imperial Combat Assault Tank was a colossal failure. Even if it’s time to discount the vehicle in the line, there shouldn’t be this many units available for these give-away prices. Hey, if we can rip The Black Series [Phase III] First Order Elite TIE Fighter 6″ vehicle a new one, we should be able to do it for a TVC item too. Special thanks to JTA reader Ed. D. for the latest Ollie’s news.

P.S. I do want to be COMPLETELY transparent and state I never saw this vehicle at retail ONCE. So, maybe it’s NOT a great comparison to the 6″ First Order Elite TIE Fighter. At least the latter was found EVERYWHERE before it hit clearance EVERYWHERE.

If you care about variations and you ordered The Vintage Collection Princess Leia Organa (Yavin) figure from Hasbro Pulse, it’s a good bet you were shipped VC164. Also, VC150 is showing up at Walmart now (just found it yesterday).

Although The Vintage Collection Boba Fett periodically shows out of stock at Walmart online, it also frequently shown as available from a third-party seller (for a VERY EXPENSIVE PRICE; usually around $36+). However, if you look for the other buying options, you’ll also see it’s available from Walmart too. If you click Compare Sellers (including Walmart), you then have an option to add Boba Fett to your cart for the $12.93 MSRP! It worked for me and I received mine today. (I wanted to ensure it worked before posting.) I could have ordered a dozen if I wanted to, but only when it shows in stock from a third party seller. Best of luck! As of the time of this post, you can order the figure.

Update: Looks like it’s back in stock again when you click the ‘Compare’ option.

If you’re interested, tunghori has listed the TVC Princess Leia Organa (Yavin) figure loose. If you’re not into the packaging variants but only want the new head sculpt and arms, then this might be your best option. The figure has been a bit difficult to find at retail at the moment. Special thanks to friend and JTA reader Mark for the alert! P.S. tunghori ALSO has listed the Leia Organa (Sandstorm Outfit) figure loose too!

Walmart Exclusive TVC Luke Skywalker (Yavin) Still $6.99!

With all of the crazy Black Friday and Cyber Monday hoopla, it appears many of you missed out or didn’t know about the TVC Luke Skywalker (Yavin) Walmart exclusive figure for $6.99. It’s still that price if you’re interested. Thanks to all who wrote in reminding us that this deal probably didn’t make it out there fully.
