You've Just Crossed Over Into The Hasbro Zone

You’ve always collected Star Wars toys with relative availability at the retail level. But recently, you’ve encountered another dimension of nothingness; nothing to purchase because there’s nothing found. You’re desperately trying to spend your extra income on the latest Star Wars figures. But instead, you’ve just crossed over into The Hasbro Zone. (more….)

While anything is possible, a relatively new job was posted at Hasbro’s employment website (within the last 30 days) for Manager, Global Brand Development & Marketing – Star Wars. If I was a betting man, I’d interpret this to mean that the brand isn’t going very far, meaning, there could very well be a license renewal. This is all conjecture on my part, but this turn of events does make things interesting for the Star Wars brand.

An interesting rumor broke at HISSTANK today that Jazwares and Hasbro will collaborate for the GI Joe line. Apparently this will be confirmed at NY International Toy Fair this year. Unrelated to this rumor and perhaps more important to ponder is the possibility of Hasbro partnering with Jazzwares for the Star Wars license. Is there a chance that the line will branch out in 2020? Check out the report at HISSTANK.

We know what we’ve been told. Hasbro supposedly held back “a large percentage” of stuff to avoid spoilers for The Rise Of Skywalker for The Vintage Collection. (The same is true for The Black Serie [Phase III] 6″ line.) That’s why we were bombarded with over a dozen straight repacks over the summer. But the film is out. The spoilers are known. And yet, there are NO newly announced 3.75″ super-articulated action figures from the film announced. WHY? (more…)

Here is a sad story. $10 Tatooine Skiffs. $3 TVC figures. $20 TBS helmets. Hasbro is holding a two day warehouse sale in Carlisle, PA and they have great deals on some recent collectibles. Why didn’t they offer these deals online to all collectors? Imperial Holocron has the full story.

The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ line is flourishing, but that doesn’t mean that Hasbro isn’t still actively playing catch up as we speak. We looked at glaringly absent characters from the Original Trilogy in the 6″ line. Now let’s look at the Prequel Trilogy. Click through and see if you agree with our list, and be sure to leave your thoughts about this in the comments!

The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ line is flourishing, but that doesn’t mean that Hasbro isn’t still actively playing catch up as we speak. However, we can’t help but notice at least 15 characters that were released in the classic vintage Kenner line that Hasbro has yet to produce for the modern 6″ line. Click through and see if you agree with our list, and be sure to leave your thoughts about this in the comments!

While it wasn’t a Best Buy exclusive, the AT-ST Raider was initially exclusively available at Best Buy. Apparently there is a distinct difference. Whatever the case, you can now pick up the AT-ST Raider on Amazon.com. Thanks to JTA reader Shawn for the alert!

Shill Reviews? Or Just Part Of The Way New Toys Are Influenced?

After discovering all of the Walmart discounts today, I checked out a few products to check out the reviews. I couldn’t help but notice that there is a disclaimer on most reviews that notes that the reviews were written when the customer was visiting Hasbro and that the “review was collected as part of a promotion.” Also of note, the reviews are very general and not too specific. Does anyone else find this odd? Is this a new technique of which I am not aware? Read through them all. Many have a weird voice/tone to them.

If you care about variations and you ordered The Vintage Collection Princess Leia Organa (Yavin) figure from Hasbro Pulse, it’s a good bet you were shipped VC164. Also, VC150 is showing up at Walmart now (just found it yesterday).

Our friends at StarWarsFiguren.com have posted images from the convention in Germany. So far, it looks like just 6″ and 5″ figures were revealed. Be sure to check out the Boba Fett, Darth Maul, Sith Jet Trooper and Yoda Galaxy Of Adventures figures (if they ever make it to retail).

Tip: How To POSSIBLY Get A TBS6 [P3] Purge Stormtrooper NOW

I’ve been informed by a GameStop store manager that the time has expired for those who pre-ordered the bundle for the Jedi Purge video game to be guaranteed it (they’ll receive pre-order credit). Now, while I can’t confirm the validity of his claim, but I can tell you that he graciously sold me a Purge Stormtrooper with that explanation. So, it might be worth your while to visit your local chain and see if they have any extras lying around. And if your store doesn’t, have no fear. They’ll be available soon for everyone online.

Initially, I was quite critical of the “Carbonized” variations released as store exclusives for The Black Series [Phase III] line. Over time, I’ve developed an affinity for them. In many instances, I think some of the armored parts and metal parts on the characters look significantly better than the standard painted-plastic treatments. (more….)

I wasn’t entirely sure if I was going to post another article like this, because honestly, what else should we expect at this point? But the reports are pouring in that collectors are receiving DESTROYED samples of the Amazon exclusive “Armory” Sith Trooper. Here is an example from JTA reader Garo K. Hopefully, you’ve had a more pleasant experience with this exclusive. As someone who ordered five, I can assure you they arrived without any issue at all. (They also arrived in a box)
