Bandai Star Wars Vision Statues Found In France

JTA reader Patrice found the Star Wars Visions Twins set this past week in France. 

Just found yesterday (11/11/22) at Micromania Zing in France (a.k.a Gamestop), statues of the Twins Am and Karre from Star Wars Visions. A little over 18.5cm tall, about 7″ not counting the included stand.

It’s a bit remarkable as Banpresto typically only do manga and anime statues from famous series like Dragon Ball, One Piece… never Star Wars.

In a neat little packaging trick, once lined up the boxes show the shape of the Twin’s goofy looking double ISD. Keep up the good work!

Thanks for the report, Patrice!

The ShopDisney exclusive The Black Series Obi-Wan Kenobi & Darth Vader (Concept Art Edition) set (announced at Celebration Anaheim) is available on shelves in Hong Kong right now. Hopefully, this means we will be seeing it available online soon. JTA reader Steve D. Has the report:

Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader Concept Collection Black Series 2 pack is now on sale in Sino Centre in Mongkok in Hong Kong. The item is retailing at 520 hkd (which is USD65), just purchased one at Hobbybase. They had about 7 in stock on display. They would not take orders online, only purchases at the store itself. Not seen it in any other stores in HK as yet.

Dion M. from Auckland, NZ shared a great find to the TVC Facebook group: Darth Vader (Dark Times) (VC241). This figure has not been announced yet and will probably be officially revealed as a part of tomorrow’s Obi-Wan Wednesdays. This figure will likely round out Wave 35. He also found Reva (Third Sister) (VC242) and the rest of the wave as well at Farmers. Crazy that these figures are listed as shipping in September but are already on shelves in New Zealand! There are also quite a few reports of the rest of the wave in the SWNZ Facebook group.

PSA: Amazon Bib Fortuna/Shae Vizla Listing Error

When you start hunting for pre-order links on Amazon, beware that their current TVC Bib Fortuna listing has the incorrect picture. The listing has a picture of the new Shae Vizla figure. Make sure to read the title to ensure you are ordering the correct figure. Thanks to JTA reader Craig for the PSA! Craig contacted Amazon about this and the listing is indeed for Bib Fortuna and NOT Shae Vizla.

JTA reader Michael W. found The Vintage Collection Remnant Stormtrooper figure at his local Walmart for a mere $3.50. Keep in mind, this was the first time Michael ever saw the figure in brick and mortar. It makes you wonder what’s the point of retail anymore (on so many levels).

The modern Hasbro Star Wars brand has been in existence for over a quarter of a century, and it appears that Hasbro still cannot understand the need to release case assortments with even ratios of action figures. (more….)

Is anyone else sick and tired of not seeing any The Vintage Collection (or The Black Series) merchandise at his or her local brick and mortar? Yet the worst crap Hasbro could make still makes its way to shelves without a hitch? Click through to check out the latest nightmare Hasbro is trying to sell to “kids and gift-buying parents.” LOL, Hasbro, It’s not 2010 anymore. Oh, and they’re still trying to pimp Rey as a viable Star Wars character that everyone wants to see reflected in the action figure line. LOL again.

We’ve received several reports, and many have posted on social media, that GameStop is canceling pre-orders for the Gaming Greats The Black Series Nightbrother Warrior.

JTA reader Darth Matt writes in with his frustration after finding out his was also canceled. Click through for his report, and let us know in the comments if yours was canceled (or if it is still on order).
