Info about a rare Purge Stormtrooper box variant has appeared on the German Star Wars Figuren forum. The box doesn’t have the multilingual short biography on the back, but instead all five blurbs just repeat the English text. What is it with Hasbro and their various errors on Black Series boxes recently? Luke Skywalkwer anyone? Good luck hunting down the box variant and selling it for one million dollars on eBay! Let us know if you found it or maybe even have it in your collection!
The regular release of the Rise of Skywalker Sith trooper has been found in the Disney Springs shopping center in Florida. Thanks to Darren V. from Facebook for the photo. It appears that it comes with two of the blasters that were in the SDCC exclusive release. I’m interested to see the card art for the Vintage Collection version. Will you be army building this trooper? Let us know in the comments!
UK etailer Robot Kingdom has apparently begun to ship the Amazon USA exclusive Emperor Palpatine with Throne Black Series set. JTA regular Matthew Cohen found the photos in a Facebook group and sent them to us. Thanks for that! So click through for a few in hand photos of the all new Emperor with his throne!
As usual there was a preview night before SDCC kicked off properly and Hasbro showed off nothing that we haven’t seen before, but it was still a chance to see the recently revealed Sith Trooper in the flesh. So click through for a few photos!
We’re in somewhat of a lull at the moment. Most figures Hasbro have already finished are still under a Disney embargo and nothing official is known. We do know that on Triple Force Friday we will definitly get figures for The Rise of Skywalker, The Mandalorian and the Fallen Order video game. So let’s talk about what you expect, what you hope for and what you want! Both for TVC and TBS! And let’s speculate also if there will be any (Force Link) 3.75 in 5 POA figures at all, because so far there are exactly zero rumors about the latter. So click through for a discussion!
Make no mistake, we have come quite a long way in the 6 inch Black Series action figure line. The line is undoubtebly at its best now in 2018, finally. Photoreal was a game changer. However, after 5 1/2 years some things have not changed, and some things could be addressed by Hasbro and improved upon. What things? Click through for my list of Black Series pet peeves.
Here on JTA we discuss all things Star Wars, we argue about which action figure line is the best, we criticize Hasbro for repacks and at least some of us love to moan about the sequel trilogy.
But let’s talk about what we love: our Star Wars collection. We discuss action figures all day here on JTA – but we rarely get to see what you actually collect. So I thought it would be a good idea to create the opportunity to show everyone what you collect. (more…)
