Wo! Hold the phone! You can order The Black Series [Phase III] general release Sith Trooper for only $9.99 at Repeme.com! Special thanks to JTA reader Bill T. for the alert! When I visited the page, there were only four left. Then I refreshed, and it showed seven left. It must be a marketing ploy, but I was successfully able to order two! Time will tell if this is a mistake or an incorrectly listed product. But I took the chance and ordered it.

NYCC Website Updated With Hasbro Panel Details: Date And Time

The NYCC website updates the day and time of the Hasbro panel. It will be Sunday, October 6th at 1:15 PM at the Javits Center. We’ll likely learn a lot more about what will follow Triple Force Friday then. I am not sure how much new could be revealed after what shows up on eBay from now until then. Time will tell.

Another Retailer Exclusive That Bit The Dust?

Just because I never heard or saw of this Star Wars [Solo] 12 Inch FIgure six-pack doesn’t mean you haven’t. But it looks like another retailer exclusive bit the dust. Presumably, an item for TARGET, JTA reader Scott B. found this set at his local Meijer in northern Michigan for only $19.99!

Here is something else the Hasbro Star Wars brand doesn’t need to rot at retail. Another line like this only hurts their bottom line and irritate shareholders. I have never heard of this line myself, but JTA reader mic windu found a super-sized 10″ line of Galactic Heroes called Mega Mighties. Look for it at your closest clearance aisle in a couple of weeks.

TVC Luke Skywalker (Yavin) (VC151) Parts Clarification

I made a couple of mistakes on the Luke Skywalker (Yavin) figure’s recipe. So, I wanted to clear that up here. Firstly, the figure is indeed a retool of 2013’s TBS [P1] Luke Skywalker (#05) figure. But the head sculpt (and hairpiece), forearms AND hands are all new parts. I initially believed they were the same hands of the Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight) figure from the Luke Skywalker Jedi Destiny set, but those hands are ball-jointed, and Luke Skywalker (Yavin)’s hands are swivel. I wanted to make that detail clear. They look to be based on each other, but they’re definitely different. If you haven’t seen our review on this figure, please check it out HERE.

Time Capsule: TVC Figure Questions For A Future Generation

Let’s enter fantasy land for a few moments. If given the opportunity, what would you ask the 2010-2013 Hasbro Star Wars Team about The Vintage Collection that you never got answered? What irritating features on figures never got updated that still bug you today? What TVC figures do you feel need to be re-released to meet collector demand? Do you still want VC66 and VC67 made available to those who missed out? Do you have any questions on why a specific figure was approached the way it was instead of another way? Whatever your inquiry or complaint, please leave it in the comments. Be sure also to reference the figure you’re talking about with its VC number, otherwise, we might not know.

WOW! BREAKING NEWS! Thanks to The Heroes and Villains Facebook group, we have carded images of the newest The Rise Of The Skywalker The Vintage Collection figures! There are important things to note! Hasbro must have listened to us whining about the name pills. Heck, we posted enough articles on that disaster. Both the font and style have been updated! Amen! Glory! Hallelujah! Also! There is some strangeness here too. Why is Poe Dameron on a The Rise Of Skywalker card back? BIZARRE! Not everything is perfect, but there are obvious strides of improvement! Check them out by clicking the image below. And don’t forget to comment! Special thanks to friend Josh M. for the alert!
