With Hasbro, 3.75″ collectors are good as gold to them! If this is the only things 3.75″ collectors are getting to celebration the Luke Skywalker saga. There needs to be a The Vintage Collection celebration of these character continuing. There is no other way to celebrate it for those collectors. JTA reader Paul V. found GOLD 5POA action figures at his local Walmart. (They didn’t ring up, obviously). But who is going to buy this line? Honestly. Please let us know. And don’t be afraid if you like these.

Retailers Starting To Prepare For Force Friday

JTA reader Jeremy spotted a new addition to the Star Wars section at his local Ohio Meijer, featuring a new Star Wars spash with an October 4 date posted. The display itself is fairly bland, but it’s good to see stores getting ready for Triple Force Friday. Thanks for the update, Jeremy!

Stopping at my local Meijer in Ohio I saw this display piece in the Star Wars section. It was a mat type display anchored to the shelf of the Star Wars you section. Retail will be participating on 10-4.

Another Retailer Exclusive That Bit The Dust?

Just because I never heard or saw of this Star Wars [Solo] 12 Inch FIgure six-pack doesn’t mean you haven’t. But it looks like another retailer exclusive bit the dust. Presumably, an item for TARGET, JTA reader Scott B. found this set at his local Meijer in northern Michigan for only $19.99!

Walgreens Tries To Blow Out Remaining TBS6 Stock For Cheap!

If you’re looking for cheap Cassians, Jyns, Reys, and Finns, look no further than Walgreens who is running a sale on Hasbro’s TBS6 line. The promotion for the figures is $7.99 each. Something tells me these figures won’t even sell at these prices. Special thanks to JTA reader Tusken Raider and Craig F. for the reports!!

Things Are Improving At Retail!

With so much doom and gloom JTA reports (well, that’s only some of the feedback we get),  I guess facts hurt feelings sometimes. However, it’s great that I can turn the tables on y’all and give you a positive store report. Because for the last four years, retail has been absolutely miserable in my area when it comes to Hasbro Star Wars. Absolutely miserable. (Crap! There I go with doom and gloom again.) OK, let’s restart this. I am happy to provide some positive truth for you so that more doom and gloom won’t shatter your world. This time it’s positive. I promise! Are you ready? Here we go!

They Don't Make Brick And Mortar Like They Used To

I believe many of us have given up on physical brick and mortar to secure our Star Wars toys. Despite this, I am continually amazed at how worse the shelves become. For example, all of the TARGETs in my area have not seen a blessed The Vintage Collection figure beyond wave 17 and only have a single Jyn Erso and/or multiple Snokes hanging from the pegs. Walmart looks a tad better, but still, where are all of the new figures? It isn’t an exaggeration that no more than 2% of my Star Wars purchases are from retail stores. Thank goodness for Hasbro Pulse, Entertainment Earth, Empire Toys, Brian’s Toys,  Amazon and other online shops. I probably will never understand why retailers are unable to get the new waves into stores. Let’s be thankful that their exclusives mostly arrive without too many issues as of late (regardless of how they’re handled once they released).


I’ve lost count how many months my local TARGET has looked like this now; it’s probably going on years.

Posted in Store Reports

Holy cow! If you thought 50% off was a good deal, the TARGET exclusive “stormtrooper disguise” figures have hit a new low: $3.89 for Han Solo and $5.89 for Luke Skywalker! This is unreal. Why is there such an effort to get rid of these? Special thanks to JTA reader Rich K. for the alert and image!

If your TARGET has any leftover Han Solo (Stormtrooper), Luke Skywalker (Death Star Escape), or, yes, the Retro Collection figures, they’re all 50% because they fall under Father’s Day gifts, at least at JTA reader Scott K.’s local TARGET in NY! Unbelievable! He writes: “If any Target stores have leftovers the VC Han Stormtrooper, he is $6.49, the Retro figures are $4.99 and I believe The Black Series Luke Stormtrooper is $9.99.”

    

UPDATE: It looks like this might be universal. My TARGET had only the 6″ Luke Stormtrooper leftover and they all rang up $9.99.

The End Result of Poor Distribution: Walmart Edition

Yesterday I went to a liquidation store because I knew they had star wars figures. I just didn’t realize how many figures they had… There were cases upon cases full of Cassian and Jyn, and the remaining third of the stack was split between Death Troopers, Scarif Troopers, Lando, and Ackbar. Click through for more…

Citing any store report (or even multiple store reports) is anecdotal at best. But if you combine store reports like the two examples shown in the image above with the near-instant sellout of the Walmart exclusive TVC Jabba’s Palace online. Or the impossibility of finding Saelt-Marae in stock online for MSRP. Or the binge-purchasing of the all-new Rogue One Imperial Stormtrooper, you’d have to have your head buried in the sand to not see the excitement and fever for all things 3.75″ super-articulated. I believe the HasLab exclusive Jabba’s Sail Barge was the catalyst to spark this interest. (more….)

Walmart Won't Jyn Up Any Sales This Way!

I don’t think putting The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ Sergeant Jyn Erso behind locked glass is going to help you sell her, Walmart. It’s hard to believe this figure still shows up at some Walmart stores. You’d think the $.03 they marked her down to would have cleared that stock out completely. By the way, this is from my local Walmart and it’s looked like this longer than I can recall at this point.

JTA reader Chad R. sends in a report that the Beetee wave of The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ figures arrived at his local GameStop store! Great find! The release date online has also changed to tomorrow (June 7th).

Yet Another Cancelled EE Item Heads to Ross

The last Ross exclusive was the Red Squadron A-wing. Are you ready for another? The once Toys R Us, turned Entertainment Earth then cancelled exclusive C-3PO and R2-D2 2-pack showed up at one of my local Ross stores in Mesa, AZ. It’s been available on Amazon for some time, but you can potentially get it for only $7 at Ross. Can we just send all the exclusives there so I can get them on the cheap? Check out our review of this nicely painted 2-pack here.

TBS Princess Leia #30 Hitting Ross Hard

About a week ago we posted that Captain Rex was showing up at Ross stores in the US. Well, I went to six Ross stores yesterday and was sorely disappointed. Not only did I not find a single Captain Rex, I found something much worse (at more than one store). If you need reminded why this particular Leia figure is essentially terrible, just check out our RDR here. Has anyone had luck finding Captain Rex or the Target 3-pack at Ross? Let us know in the comments!

Hot on the heels of our report of the TVC Han Solo (Stormtrooper) figure hitting en masse, The Black Series [Phase III] Luke Skywalker (Stormtrooper Escape) 6″ figure is also arriving in substantial numbers as well. Special thanks to JTA reader and friend Russ T. for the image.

WOW! Black Series Captain Rex Showing Up at Ross!

More and more Star Wars collectibles are showing up at discount retailers, and it looks like the next one to hit Ross is Captain Rex. Surprising to me since it’s such a good figure, but this probably has more to do with distribution than collectors not buying it at retail. It looks like the search is on once again to find this figure on the cheap. Thanks to Mike Y. and Rand R. from Arizona for the images. Have you found this figure at Ross too? Let us know in the comments!

JTA reader Matthew C. via Facebook user Kylo Ortiz lets us know that the TARGET exclusive TVC Han Solo (Stormtrooper) (VC143) figure is hitting massively and getting placed in those “separate” Father’s Day displays outside of the toy aisle that we reported about weeks ago. They should be everywhere soon!
