OK, Hasbro. Firstly, thank you for doing right by collectors of The Vintage Collection. Today’s announcement was LONG OVERDUE, but at least it’s here now. Secondly, since you’ve confirmed this figure’s release, it’s now time to talk about that card back. You should have time to remedy the multiple issues that plague it and get it to your art department to fix it. Click through for more.

It looks like if you took advantage of the $12.99 sale price for The Black Series Rey (Dark Side Vision) on GameStop.com, GameStop is now sending out notices that the price was in error and they are adjusting your order to $22.99. Thanks for the numerous emails we received from viewers letting us know. Click through for the full email from JTA reader Ed…

Galaxy's Edge Millennium Falcon Arriving In Europe

JTA regular Darth Rizzen found the Target exclusive Galaxy’s Edge Millennium Falcon in the new toy catalogue of French toy store PicWic toys. No other TVC products are in the catalogue, but the Millennium Falcon can be yours in France if you are willing to part with 450 euros, which is about $530 at current exchange rates.
Here in Germany you can find the vehicle at the usual etailers. One etailer here wants “only” 440 euros ($517) but pre-orders are already all sold out, another one wants a whopping 500 euros ($588). Is the Millennium Falcon available in your country too? And how much would you be willing to pay for it?

The Black Series [Phase IV] Cad Bane & Todo 360 two-pack will undoubtedly anger collectors. That’s if you don’t have it yet, of course. If you own it, it probably makes you happy. Hasbro missed one important detail on Todo 360, but overall, the figure is excellent. Cad Bane is also excellent, near-perfect, in fact. (more….)

Review: Hondo Ohnaka - TVC - VC173

The best way to assess The Vintage Collection Hondo Ohnaka figure is to say it should have stayed a pack-in exclusive with the Millennium Falcon (Smuggler’s Run) vehicle. We hope Hasbro doesn’t waste any other slots on Disney Star Wars figures, unless they’re from Episode IX or The Mandalorian. (more….)
