You Bent My Death Star Droid

JTA reader and friend, Alientek ordered a bunch of figures off of Hasbro Toy Shop’s eBay Store and received this little gem in the mail from them. It’s the Walmart exclusive The Vintage Collection Death Star Droid sealed UPSIDE DOWN on the card. Coincidentally, Hasbro Toy Shop packaged the figure in a way that resulted in a curled card, but the figure has a much bigger issue.

Walmart Exclusive TVC Ahsoka Tano and Grogu Arriving

The Vintage Collection Ahsoka Tano and Grogu orders are starting to arrive from Walmart.com. Let us know in the comments if you receive yours, and how they arrived. Thanks to JTA reader Travis for the report!

I received my Ahsoka Tano & Grogu from Walmart this morning.  The packaging is reminiscent of the original TVC Ewok Scouts and AT-ST Crew sets from K-Mart…and probably a good look at the future of all TVC packaging.  I’m sure others will be reporting this soon, too.  As always, thanks for all your work and your site. All the best!

Target is sending out updated shipping notices for the Droids R2-D2 and Boba Fett figures. They are now due to ship on May 26th. They also updated the product pages with May 26th as the release date. I don’t know if I’m more excited to finally receive these figures or to have that Target hold on my Credit Card for the past 8 months finally gone. 

You can still pre-order these from the site if you have not yet found them at brick and mortar stores. Click below for the pre-order pages.

Update: Boba Fett is now going in and out of stock for pre-orders

It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World: Positive Shipping Reports?

We’re living in a Bizarro-World, folks. JTA reader and friend Mark M. received his order of Retro Collection action figures based on The Mandalorian. He received twelve individually packed boxes in a larger outer box. Can anything be more out of alignment with what Target or Walmart normally do?

Longtime JTA reader Vas’rod sends us an alert that Hasbro Pulse UK has begun shipping the re-release of the Republic Trooper (The Old Republic) action figure. There aren’t many changes made to this re-release, but we also can’t see the entire figure. But most disappointing is that Hasbro didn’t update the font of the nameplate to correct it. Also, the good news is Hasbro could keep the Expanded Universe entertainment logo, something that Disney Star Wars would rather see die a slow death in an elephant graveyard, but that’s another story. So, that was a great win.

It looks like the Walmart Exclusive Clone Wars 6-inch General Grievous is now shipping (and arriving) on doorsteps. If you had this on pre-order then check your shipping status. If you still need this, I would keep an eye on the product page. When Walmart’s exclusives start shipping they also usually go back in stock for a short time (Almost the entire TVC Clone Wars wave is still available to order). Let us know in the comments if yours is shipping (or has arrived).

Yes, I’m on an alliteration kick today. But, holy cow. Did you receive your Walmart exclusive wave of The Vintage Collection Clone Wars figures? They’re arriving via droves of boxes, both undersized and oversized, bubble envelopes, and in as many parcels as Walmart sees fit. How has the condition of your figures been? Did you get your complete order, or are some still on their way? As one Instagram reader put it, this wave is GOAT, and we can’t wait to review them all. Stay tuned for more! Special thanks to JTA reader Mike R. for the alert and image.

Amazon Hates The Vintage Collection Collectors

JTA reader Norman S. eagerly anticipated the delivery of The Vintage Collection The Emperor (VC200) figure from Amazon. But when he opened up his perfectly undamaged box, he couldn’t believe the contents inside. Click the images below for a clearer view.

The second wave of The Vintage Collection Lucasfilm 50th Anniversary 3.75-inch figures are arriving from Walmart, and we’re getting many reports that they’ve continued to ship them one per box or envelope. And the envelopes are sometimes padded, and others times not. How do they afford all of these shipping costs? (Mine arrived one per box and envelope too, and the ones in the envelope were in better condition than those shipped in a box! Special thanks to JTA readers Ken P. and Matt R. for the images!

I know I see more positive reports than negative one when it comes to Hasbro Pulse. Still, JTA reader Jason A.’s recent delivery of The Black Series [Lucasfilm 50th Anniversary] POTF2 (one of their worst exclusives ever) arrived shoved into an ill-fitted box by their shipping department. This has been the norm for me. I’ve literally had better encounters with Walmart’s shipping than Hasbro Pulse. Oh well.

The Vintage Collection AT-ST Driver figure I was missing from my original pre-order from Walmart arrived today out of the blue. And, once again, came in a bubble-mailer all by itself. When I opened the package, I was quite tickled by its condition. (There is no point in getting upset anymore.) Thank goodness I didn’t open my other three that are folded in half since their condition is much better! That said, this arrival served as a metaphor for me for how I feel about collecting, where Hasbro is with the TVC toy line, and where Disney Star Wars is with its audience. Let’s all “fake” celebrate the five-decade landmark, OK?! How can an action figure arrive already in a position to man an Imperial AT-ST Walker while still inside of the packaging? But my figure did!

Shipping Notices Going Out For First Walmart TVC Wave

It appears (so far) that Walmart is sticking to their July 1st release date for the first TVC exclusive wave featuring Paploo, Princess Leia (Endor), and AT-ST Driver. So far, so good! For the first time since these went up for pre-order back in March, they are all three now listed Out of Stock.

That was something else when the out-of-production The Vintage Collection Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight) (VC175) showed up on Amazon for $12.99 a couple of days ago. The orders are arriving, and the shipping reports are all over the map. Especially my shipments for my 48-figure order. (more….)

I wish Chris Swanski from Bantha Skull would refrain from ordering his personal products during peak The Vintage Collection exclusive ordering times because Walmart can only deal with so much at a time. One of our readers, Aaron P., accidentally received Chris’ shipment of “personal items” instead of The Vintage Collection’s Din Djarin, and Aaron lost out on Din Djarin because of this mixed up shipment. Chris, text me and we’ll figure out how to get these to you. But please don’t order this stuff during another TVC ordering frenzy. Click through for JTA reader Aaron P.’s experience.

We have some good news to report. JTA readers are getting their TARGET exclusive TVC Galaxy’s Edge TVC Millennium Falcon. And they’re coming in an outer shipper. JTA reader Shaun S. said his item was in perfect condition. I find it particularly charming how Hasbro has labeled this item with the letters “BMF.” This was a collecting-community generated acronym, and it’s stuck.
