The Rise Of Skywalker Initiates The Fall Of 3.75"!

Have you fully processed that the Hasbro The Rise Of Skywalker toy line will be the first without a range of 3.75″ figures outside of The Vintage Collection yet? It’s true. And you could say that this means that The Rise Of Skywalker is initiating the decline of 3.75″!

Retro Collection Boba Fett? Is It On The Horizon?

Although priced with an MSRP for a The Vintage Collection figure, Walmart has listed a Retro Collection Boba Fett figure. With the runaway success of the first wave at TARGET and now Entertainment Earth, there’s no doubt the line’s continuing, but will Boba Fett be one of the figures in the next wave? Special thanks to friend Mark for the alert!

All the excitement for the new helmets and great Star Wars dioramas may have overshadowed this piece of news. Or in this case, it’s telling what Hasbro didn’t talk about at all at the SDCC panel. 5 POA 3.75” modern style movie figures were not mentioned with one single word. Hasbro merely said that 3.75 inch figures will get made for the Retro line and TVC, they didn’t mention Force Link one single time.
And then, during the Q&A, one person asked about more toys for Star Wars: Resistance. Hasbro’s short reply? Nothing is planned at all. So what does that mean? It looks as though 5 POA 3.75 inch figures, unless they are Kenner replicas, are dead? Also, Hasbro doesn’t seem to believe at all in the Resistance cartoon. If the toys and the show were a success, Hasbro would certainly be happy to offer more. Instead they offer nothing. We know season 2 of Resistance is coming, but it was probably greenlit long before season 1 even aired (it’s how animation works). So what does it mean for the show when it has zero toys? And what does it mean for 3.75 inch collectors if the 5 POA line is cancelled in favor of stylized 5 inch Galaxy of Adventures figures? It seems 3.75 inch collectors will only have TVC now. And Retro figures. What is going on here? Or will Hasbro reveal a 5 POA 3.75 line for The Rise of Skywalker after all, but only on Triple Force Friday? There are zero rumors for any 5 POA figures though. So maybe the line is dead. Many of you asked for it. But the question is, are you happy now that 5 POA might be dead? TVC didn’t benefit at all from that, as is evident.

UPDATE: Hasbro officially confirmed in a post panel interview that the basic 5 POA 3.75 inch action figure line is no more. Only the Retro collection and TVC will have 3.75 inch figures from now on.

The end.

Super7's 1985 POTF-Inspired Metropolis Maria Figure!

Super 7 is releasing another excellent exclusive this year, in line with their previous Alien Hammerhead figure. This year it’s Kenner 1985 The Power Of The Force packaging with a 5POA Metropolis Maria as the featured figure. Awesome! Too bad Hasbro doesn’t do a whole line of never-produced POTF Retro Collection figures like this! Imagine a POTF Bossk, POTF IG-88, POTF Luke Bespin. It will never happen as the line continually gets squandered. Any way, check out Super 7’s Facebook page for more

Not Much Good Will In This Goodwill Auction!

As we reported, the “Father’s Day” exclusives at TARGET have been collected and gathered and sent to Goodwill stores. Now they’re showing up online in auctions. (Is the hobby really this difficult now?) Anyway, JTA reader Greg A. sends us a link where there is an auction of the removed products. Do you notice anything odd? Whoever did this should give up the hobby immediately.

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.

JTG: Jedi Temple Guard Or Jilting The Gang?

Wow! I knew this was a HOT figure, but look what sellers are requesting for the 2015 Rebels Jedi Temple Guard (SL17) Saga Legends figure Check it out! Do prices like this for 5POA make you mad? Or dejected? Or do you laugh at what some command for these simple figures? One thing is for sure, we don’t know of any other 5POA figure that goes for this kind of money, proof that all-new characters from beloved Star Wars sources will always be desired. Thanks to friend Sjefke for the alert on this.
