JTA is in the #FightForTVC. Ignore the noise here and elsewhere. It’s important more than ever to now sign the petition, contact Hasbro, Walmart, TARGET, and other online retail and let them know you want to see more TVC. Let the campaign CONTINUE! #FightForTVC. JTA led the campaign for the relaunch of TVC, and it was successful as it came to fruition in 2017. We also organized a successful campaign for Jabba’s Sail Barge (“Bring On The Barge”) years ago. If we all successfully worked together to do that, we certainly can do it again to get the figures we want! Hasbro Pulse Instagram: HERE. Hasbro Pulse Facebook HERE. Hasbro Twitter: HERE. Online Consumer Care HERE. Use #FightForTVC everywhere you reach out. Sign the petition HERE.

Some of those who pre-ordered the Retro Collection The Empire Strikes Back figures at Walmart online are getting shipping notices as we speak, although a few of the shipping details explain the package is delayed. Who knows what’s happening at this point, but let us know how your orders go

As we exclusively reported several weeks ago, those who pre-ordered the Retro Collection The Empire Strikes Back figures at Walmart online will indeed receive delayed shipments. Originally believed to ship with a new release date of May 20th (instead of May 4th), some are now receiving notices pushing out the shipping dates to June 19th. (And it may be later for others too.)

UPDATE: Some are receiving cancellation notices too!

A couple of days ago, online retailer Dorkside Toys dropped a bombshell of news in Rebelscum’s forums. There has been much debate over whether Hasbro is giving The Vintage Collection the attention it needs and deserves (spoiler: they’re not) and Dorkside Toys relays information that surprises and counters the echo chamber you hear elsewhere.

This isn’t a rumor. This isn’t news. But man oh man, Hasbro seems ever unwavering in their stance that things WILL NOT improve as far as The Vintage Collection is concerned (from collectors’ perspectives). For me, it is disconcerting. (more….)

Not Star Wars related, but we know many of our viewers also love G.I. Joe, so on a slow news day it’s worth sharing the latest releases from Hasbro’s Fan First Friday. 6″ Snake Eyes was the big reveal today. Check out all of the pre-orders over at Entertainment Earth!

Hasbro, It's Time For An Answer To #wheresrex?

I don’t know about you, but I can’t take it anymore. Since 2013, Hasbro showed 3.75″ super-articulated collectors a stellar version of a Phase I Captain Rex. Then Attack Of The Clones 3D didn’t happen. Then Legacy Collection “2” was canceled, and Hasbro threw out this baby with the bathwater. For years, JTA and other fansites have asked, begged, and screamed at Hasbro about why they haven’t released this incredible action figure yet. Well, now it’s time. If Hasbro doesn’t release this figure NOW, they are a terrible company. The Clone Wars just ended, and we still don’t have this figure or an announcement of it. NOW IS THE TIME! Remember that ridiculous hashtag in 2015 (#wheresrey)? Let’s get is going again with one letter changed. The Vintage Collection collectors demand to know #wheresrex?

TARGET Reset Next Week! Here Are Some Details!

Those of you who ordered the Retro Collection online through Walmart’s website will have to wait “an unknown amount of time” before you see your orders fulfilled. JTA has learned that stock has been delayed because of the pandemic, and it will take some time before Walmart online can fill them. Please note, Retro Collection figures arriving in filled displays at some Walmart stores are part of a separate inventory and not part of the online stock units. It’s suggested to leave your orders in their current pre-ordered status as the expectation remains that they will eventually be filled and shipped out to collectors. Currently, there is no impact on The Empire Strikes Back 40th Anniversary 6″ figures. And the effect on new The Vintage Collection figures remains unknown. We will continue to follow this developing story, and provide updates as they become available. In the meantime, check out the complete wave of The Empire Strikes Back figures RIGHT HERE.
