Welcome to another entry in our The Vintage Collection: The Ninety Six column. Hasbro recently committed to collectors that they will be “focusing” on characters in The Vintage Collection that fall under “The Ninety Six” banner. If you’re new to this, it means that there needs a modern counterpart for every classic Kenner figure. Between 2020 and 2021, Hasbro’s made an admirable effort by focusing on these characters. But there is more work to be done, and we’ll figure out where we are step by step. Today we assess Ree-Yees.

You know things are extremely terrible with the supply chain and the Walmart distribution center, in particular, that a retail chain gets stock that was never theirs from the start. Walmart is now receiving Target exclusives before general marketplace stock or even their OWN exclusives! They’ve gone to plaid!

Longtime JTA reader and friend Robert F. visited his local Ollie’s only to find a slew of new discounted Hasbro Star Wars products. Two are Walmart exclusives, and the other didn’t make it further than online. It’s amazing to see how much product never arrived in stores by visiting your local Ollie’s. Many never saw the “Force Spirit” Yoda at their local Walmarts. No one wanted a 5POA cardboard playset. And even fewer collectors anted a new scale of rubbery hyper-articulated action figures known as Hyper Real. if Hasbro is smart, they’ll stick to what sells: TBS6, TVC, and stay away from the ST like it’s the toxic wasteland it is. You have to wonder what the heck is going on at the distribution centers.

This is what the Star Wars section now looks like at my local Walmart. Now, to be completely transparent, it didn’t look any different for a couple of years now, it’s only been relocated now. This is an image of an inner endcap that is sectioned off from the rest of the aisle. Where the Star Wars section once was has been completely removed, and in its place are He-Man and other action figures from other lines. I can’t think of worse mismanagement of a toyline. This is one of many reasons why brick and mortar shouldn’t be carrying Star Wars toys. Gift givers are NOT buying or looking for Star Wars. At all. I will never understand the defense of that argument for as long as I live.

The History Book On The Shelf Is Always Repeating Itself

Exclusives have been hitting homes the last couple of days, but they’re not arriving in pristine condition. Click through to read what JTA reader Tom R. received to his home recently. As he says, we should all be used to this now, but it’s still unacceptable.

Hasbro reached “expert” status when it comes to pouring salt into the wounds of collectors. After a fantastic run of 6-inch Bad Batch characters, JTA reader icatch9, as well as I, found the Bad Batch Mission Series set over the weekend at Target. And the number of figures produced for The Vintage Collection remains a big, fat ZERO.

When New Star Wars Stock Arrives, It's Nothing Anyone Wants

It’s been wonderful seeing the few store report across the web of collectors finding the latest The Vintage Collection and The Black Series figures. But in my neck of the woods, this is the only Star Wars stock that does make it to brick and mortar. And for those that did find the new figures, once that stock is gone, it never seems to come back.
