The Vintage Collection Gaming Greats sub-line was perhaps the best announcement from the Hasbro Pulse Fan Fest presentation last Friday. And I am one who is eager to purchase them all. One thing is bothering me about them, however. (more….)

Hasbro, I am too tired to finish writing my standard “complaint” article after one of your online product reveals events, so you’ll have to come back tomorrow for that. However, I’d like to put in your ear that you need to fix the nameplate and figure backer color of Admiral Ackbar. It’s NOT green. The original 2010 figure messed this detail up, and you’re copying over the same error. The correct color is aqua. Not green or light green. Thanks.

Here we go again! Another day, another inability of Hasbro to meet demand. Online retailers are beginning to cancel The Vintage Collection case assortment which contains the popular Darth Vader (Rogue One) figure. If your order got canceled, you can still pre-order singles from it at JTA sponsor Entertainment Earth, although, we have no guarantee these orders will be fulfilled either. But you may want to place an order for the case contents just in case. Special thanks to JTA reader Todd C. for the bad news update on this figure.

BREAKING NEWS: Running Change for Boba Fett VC186 Found

It’s not the change we were expecting, either! While we were waiting for an orange card with a cropped image a running change to the figure itself showed up. One of the biggest gripes for collectors with this figure was the lack of sensor bars on the chest armor. This detail appeared in the initial sculpted digital prototype shown by Hasbro when the figure was announced. I am thrilled to see this corrected in a running change! Thanks to Dustin W. for the photos. What do you think about this addition? Will you try and secure all 3 versions of this figure? Let us know in the comments.

Walmart Fixes Price Of TBS6 [P4] Boba Fett Deluxe Figure

Walmart fixed the pricing on The Black Series [Phase IV] Boba Fett. If you still need one, you can pre-order it HERE.

After Hasbro followed JTA’s advice and updated The Vintage Collection Boba Fett figure from Return Of The Jedi, they mentioned that some units in the earliest production run would feature the original and abominable card art (seen below) featuring the orange nameplate and figure backer and a zoomed-in image of the on-screen character. To date, no units have appeared for sale or arrived at retail. Was Hasbro incorrect, or are they forthcoming from a FILO method of distribution?

The second round of pre-orders for wave 3 from The Black Series The Empire Strikes Back 40th Anniversary line (this includes Darth Vader, Snowtrooper, Boba Fett, Luke Skywalker (Dagobah), and Chewbacca) are starting to get canceled. JTA reader Erik just informed us that his Dorkside Toys pre-order has been canceled and that BBTS will soon be following suit. If you have this on pre-order let us know in the comments if your pre-orders get canceled too. Entertainment Earth still has several from this wave still available for individual pre-order. Might be worth securing these as a backup just in case.

There have been quite a few recent articles trying to pin down the blame on why The Vintage Collection is in the state that it’s in, and the editorials have been anywhere from ridiculous to conspiracy theory. After a recent audit of my The Vintage Collection stock, to my horror, I discovered I only have 38 Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight) figures in stock, 34 short of my six dozen minimum. (more….)

Walmart TVC Pre-Orders Are STILL Available

This post contains affiliate links. At no additional cost to you, JTA may receive a commission if you click and make a purchase.

Either Walmart is doing things right this time and keeping pre-orders open long enough for everyone to get an order in, or we are in for a lot of cancelations! Seriously though, this is how it should be done. Even their non-Star Wars pre-orders are still available for those interested.

   

For our crossover fans, here are direct links to the other brand exclusives launching today!

Here are some quick pics of the Lucasfilm 50th Anniversary line of Kenner-inspired The Black Series 6″ figures, something Hasbro said they would never do for 3.75″ collectors despite constant begging, but have done it for 6″ collectors. Whatever. Enjoy the pictures courtesy of friend and JTA reader Alientek. They’re awesome figures!

Introducing Galactic Snackin’ Grogu Animatronic Toy Figure

This post contains affiliate links. At no additional cost to you, JTA may receive a commission if you click and make a purchase.

Yup! That’s right! For $79.99 you can have your very own interactive snackin’ Grogu. Pick yours up at Entertainment Earth!

If you’re wondering how to feed the Child, this is the way. The Galactic Snackin’ Grogu animated toy comes with 4 interactive accessories (bowl with tentacles, cookie, shifter knob, and spoon) that, when placed in his hand, he will react to with animations and sound effects. Pretend to feed Grogu (The Child) with the series-inspired accessories and he will react to them with eating, yummy, or yucky sound effects! Kids and fans can pat the Galactic Snackin’ Grogu toy’s head 3 times to activate a 2-handed Force animation, in which he will mimic channeling the Force, inspired by snacking scenes from the Disney+series The Mandalorian.

In case you haven’t noticed, the most recent wave of The Vintage Collection is strewn with horrid card art. What’s the deal, Hasbro? You need to fire your graphics team. These are mostly terrible. And if it wasn’t for JTA leading the campaign to fix the Return Of The Jedi Boba Fett card art, it would have been a total debacle! Princess Leia (Bespin Escape) is an embarrassment, Zutton is horrible. What the heck happened to Greef Karga’s packaging image? And with all the attention Baby Yoda is getting, you couldn’t find a less blurry image of Grogu? What’s with all of the hand-drawn-looking reference stills? They look worse than the vintage Kenner drawings! Please use high-resolution character film-outs, or hire someone else to do your packaging graphics. This collection deserves your best. Thank you!

“Well well well! Look what the cat cleaned up, showered, exfoliated, powdered, lipsticked, Gucci’d and dragged in!” Hasbro, without warning, is now invading the old Expanded Universe for The Black Series 6″ line. For the newbies, the Expanded Universe made its debut in 1998 during The Power Of The Force “2” era and ushered in a new and eager facet of the Star Wars collecting community. Years later, fans wanted more, and Hasbro introduced the Comic Packs line, and release dozens of two-packs featuring some of the most interesting, rich, unique, and beloved Star Wars characters ever introduced outside of the films. They are some of our most-visited reviews too! Some of the figures go for INSANE amounts of money today. With this post, we’re asking that Hasbro treats The Vintage Collection community with dignity and respect and get out some of the most classic (and expensive aftermarket) action figures in multipacks, or single-carded to include, and not exclude, us in this momentous event. See the full range of Comic Packs figures HERE.

Where Are All Of The HasLab TVC Razor Crest Updates?

Is it just me, or has Hasbro severely lacked on communicating any HasLab Razor Crest updates? This wasted HasLab slot is eagerly anticipated, and we’re in the dark. You’d think they want the large population of collectors who backed 28K units happy, but what do I know? It feels like they were updating us on Jabba’s Sail Barge (The Khetanna) every couple of weeks, perhaps monthly. We haven’t had a blessed update since it was fully backed. “Where’s the update?” Clara Peller would want to know!
