Vintage Kenner RDRs Redux: The Emperor - ROTJ - 1984

Here’s the review! It’s a crying shame where The Vintage Collection is at today. The Special Action Figure Set (Cave Of Evil) isn’t the worst thing Hasbro’s done, but it’s like the manifestation of salt in the wound. See the sixteen-image reenactment of Luke’s Jedi training on Dagobah using the vintage Kenner Dagobah playset in our Photo Gallery! Find out more in our Research Droids Reviews today!

Review: Jannah - TBS6 [P3] - 98

Here’s another great-looking figure in The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ line. We hope Jannah gets a good role in Episode IX because the action figure looks incredibly cool. She comes with a ton of accessories too. Thanks to Entertainment Earth for our review sample! Check her out in our Research Droids Reviews today!

It seems that there may be Walmart stores that don’t know which product is newly released. JTA reader Gold Leader provides us with evidence that the new TVC Tatooine Skiff is 25% off and all of the Galaxy Of Adventures figures are 50% off.

Holy cow! Cara Dune is a perfect 10. She’s a beautiful character, and this action figure is one of Hasbro’s best. We believe she will change the opinion of Disney Star Wars’ female characters (for the better). Cara Dune is more believable than all of the the most heavily-criticized Sequel Trilogy characters combined (and we know nothing about her). We’re so eager to see her in action. Learn everything about her in our Research Droids Reviews today! Be sure to leave your thoughts in our comments section, vote in the poll or comment about it on our Facebook page.

EW.com posted a FANTASTIC article explaining what longtime collectors already know: how pivotal Return Of The Jedi is to the toy line. They describe Return Of The Jedi as “a toy chest in search of a film.” Is there a better description than that? Those of us who backed Jabba’s Sail Barge know the joy of collecting the merchandise from Episode VI. We thought Hasbro realized this, too, but they let it fizzle out to nothing. And there are SO MANY more characters to get to and update. So, Hasbro, instead of using EW to reveal your breaking new toy reveals (that no Star Wars collectors go to visit unless directed there by a fan site), perhaps you should use them as research so you can better the Star Wars toy line. Just a thought.

Review: Wedge Antilles - TBS6 [P3] - 102

It’s unreal it’s taken Hasbro seven years to bring us a second X-wing pilot in the 6″ line. But they finally released Wedge Antilles. You’re going to like this figure very much.

Hasbro, there is an AWFUL rumor circulating (NOT FROM JTA) that all of the straight repacks you announced this past weekend WILL NOT come with Photo Real deco. We don’t see how that’s possible. You said that all figures released going forward would have Photo Real on them. On the contrary, we’ve also heard they WILL COME with Photo Real deco. At this point, we’re not sure what’s happening with them. But if you don’t include Photo Real deco, it will be one of your most egregious mistakes to date. (more….)

Review: Luke Skywalker (Yavin Ceremony) - TBS6 [P3] - 100

We’ve hit the 100th figure in The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ line. And Hasbro took this landmark event for granted by spelling his name incorrectly TWICE on the box. Thankfully, it’s one of the best Luke figures we have. Special thanks to Entertainment Earth for providing us with our review sample!
