Only in a bizarro Walmart world would you find The Vintage Collection marked $2 less than a Retro Collection figure. But here we are.

Review: Fifth Brother - Retro Collection

Many Fifth Brother action figures have been produced through the years, including a “shampoo bottle.” But check out the Retro Collection version. It’s pretty cool. (more….)

Review: Grand Inquisitor - Retro Collection

Only some characters are worthy of soft goods in the Retro Collection. Check out the Grand Inquisitor. Hopefully, the super-articulated version isn’t far behind. (more….)

Review: NED-B - Retro Collection

Why didn’t Hasbro produce the Retro Collection’s NED-B figure for The Vintage Collection first? And where is the character’s droid blaster? (more….)

JTA reader Aaron H. found the latest Retro Collection figures at his local Target in Eastern PA. Although the box had a street date, they were not register-locked.

Longtime JTA reader and friend Robert F. visited his local Ollie’s only to find a slew of new discounted Hasbro Star Wars products. Two are Walmart exclusives, and the other didn’t make it further than online. It’s amazing to see how much product never arrived in stores by visiting your local Ollie’s. Many never saw the “Force Spirit” Yoda at their local Walmarts. No one wanted a 5POA cardboard playset. And even fewer collectors anted a new scale of rubbery hyper-articulated action figures known as Hyper Real. if Hasbro is smart, they’ll stick to what sells: TBS6, TVC, and stay away from the ST like it’s the toxic wasteland it is. You have to wonder what the heck is going on at the distribution centers.

It’s another Hasbro cash-grab! The Target exclusive Retro Collection Stormtrooper (Prototype Edition) figure is more of the same. Are you getting tired of these yet? Why can’t they use pastel and black and white plastics for these things? (more….)

Review: Boba Fett (Prototype Edition) - RC - Target Exclusive

Stop the press! There is a new RDR in town! Let’s take a look at the six variants of the brand-spanking-new Target exclusive Boba Fett (Prototype Armor) 3.75-inch action figure that you probably cannot find yet. It’s more of the same, but at least it’s Boba Fett! However, is this figure really a prototype? (more….)

We’re about a year and a half out from the Retro Collection Return Of The Jedi figures, so that means that Hasbro is planning the assortment as we speak. What six candidates do you want to see realized in this assortment of 5POA action figures? We think we’ve picked the 12 most popular characters, but you may have different feelings about this. Let us know in the comments! If you need some help recalling the original Kenner RETURN OF THE JEDI figures, click HERE.

Review: Jedi Order - Celebrate The Saga

Review: Rebel Alliance - Celebrate The Saga - Amazon Exclusive

We find it rather unfortunate that the best-looking Princess Leia (Hoth) figure is the Photo Real update found in the Rebel Alliance Celebrate The Saga multipack. Luke and Han also look pretty good too. Dang it, Hasbro! (more….)

How can anyone possibly “celebrate the saga” with a set based on The Last Jedi? Also, Hasbro hates Rose. She’s nowhere to be found here. 5POA is never OK, but OUCH, The Resistance Celebrate The Saga multipack is EXTRA painful. Not even the Photo Real helps these monstrosities. Well, maybe a little. Regardless, you’re probably not going to want this one for any reason. Are you buying the rest of these sets for your collection? (more….)

5POA is never OK, but at least Hasbro did something good with the Celebrate The Force multipacks, a parting gift for collectors as they close the tooling archives on these figures forever. The Bounty Hunters set includes a new take on R5-P8 that uses the same tooling as a The Vntage Collection figure. This character first saw release in Disney’s Droid Factory line. The rest of this multipack is a waster Are you buying these sets for your collection? (more….)
