TVC Power Droid On Amazon For Prime!

If you still need it, the TVC Power Droid is also available on Amazon for Prime. Buy multiples. This figure has to sell out. It’s the only way we’ll continue to get the Kenner 96. Special thanks to friend Mario M. for the alert! By the way, how cool is it that this production sample has a 77 inscribed on it? Too bad it wasn’t 79!

Walgreens Ships Star Wars Action Figures Perfectly

If you ordered The Black Series [Phase IV] Phase I Clone Trooper Lieutenant from Walgreens, you probably know by now that you’ve been treated to a perfectly shipped package. JTA reader Jaret T. sends us an image of what the interior of his box looked like. Now, if only other retailers could follow suit.

Yawn. Hasbro made us wait so long for the Phase I Clone Trooper Lieutenant that we don’t even care about it anymore. Besides, the tooling is so old and tired now that the articulation system is terrible by today’s standards. Also, why did they give the packaging red color flashes? They used “yellow” for The Saga Collection for Episode II, and it made the most sense. What are they going to do for The Phantom Menace now? (more….)

1982 THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK 4-LOM: Foreign ROTJ Update

Today we revisit 4-LOM. 4-LOM wasn’t part of the Trilogo line. We’re showing one of the foreign Return Of The Jedi card back instead. 4-LOM was a late release in 1982 because it was first offered as the line’s mail-away figure that year. See the full card art and additional notes by revisiting 1982’s THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK 4-LOM figure HERE.

As you know, Ollie’s stores got multiple case assortments of The Vintage Collection in enough quantity to make a big deal about it and posted the news in their ad the week they went for sale. If you’re a collector of The Vintage Collection, you know that MANY of the figures that arrived at Ollie’s never made their way to brick and mortar stores like TARGET and WALMART. A lot of collectors saw the Rogue One Stormtrooper for the first time at Ollie’s, and on clearance to boot. One of the case boxes from the same Hasbro distribution center went to Ollie’s. And then we have another picture of a Walmart case from Walmart with the local label pulled back for comparison. What we discovered is not unexpected, but still disconcerting. It provides proof of how frustrating the current state of distribution is. Click through for more.

Review: Jango Fett - TBS6 [P3] - Gaming Greats GameStop Exclusive

We finally get a 6″ Jango Fett figure with Photo Real deco AND the Mitronomon Z-6 jetpack. Does this excite you? Not only is this figure sourced to the Star Wars: Bounty Hunter video game, but it’s also sourced to Attack Of The Clones. (It should have been released along with Kit Fisto and Plo Koon,) (more….)

Hasbro Brings Carbonized Figures To The Vintage Collection

Carbonization is coming to The Vintage Collection. Of all the things they could do for The Vintage Collection, copying The Black Series 6″ line it seems is where Hasbro is inspired. This image comes from Kylo Collectors’ Instagram page. Special thanks to JTA reader Craig P. for the alert.

Review: Teebo (Ewok) - TBS6 [P4] - ROTJ02

Hasbro omitted a very important accessory with The Black Series [Phase IV] Teebo (Ewok) figure. Also, why did they qualify the character’s name with “Ewok”? Why is Hasbro so confused? (more….)

TVC Is Falling Seriously Behind When It Comes To Emperor Palpatine

This is why Hasbro was super-smart to make this item an online exclusive. JTA reader Jon M. found The Vintage Collection Millennium Falcon (Smuggler’s Run) on clearance for $279.99. We have no idea why TARGET would place a brand new item on clearance. All of the other Galaxy’s Edge stuff is full price. There is obviously a breakdown in communication somewhere. Either way, don’t expect to see too many of these instances at your local brick and mortar location! Click through for more!

In 1984, new packaging for Star Wars figures was introduced for the European market. A cost containment initiative, the new packaging sported three languages of the Return Of The Jedi logo for a “one size fits all” approach. Although a “three-logo” design was created for The Power Of The Force line (as evidenced on some ‘boxed’ toys), it wasn’t carried over to the basic figure line’s card design. They continued to use the three Return Of The Jedi logos instead. Although the word “Trilogo” is found nowhere on the packaging, the term is universally adopted by all Star Wars collectors to describe this line of figures.

Today we revisit Imperial TIE Fighter Pilot. Imperial TIE Fighter Pilot comes with all-new card art based on a film-ou from Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. See the full Trilogo card art and additional notes by revisiting 1982’s THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK Imperial TIE Fighter Pilot figure HERE.
