The Black Series [Phase IV] Deluxe Jar Jar Binks Hits Ollie's

As if its clearance at Target and Walmart weren’t enough, JTA reader and friend Robert F. found the deluxe The Black Series 6″ Jar Jar Binks at Ollie’s.

Hasbro, there are some collectors who like the Lucasfilm 50th Anniversary The Power Of The Force “2” packaging. That’s fine. But if you must release figures in it, can you please get it right? Princess Leia (Ceremonial Outfit) (not “Yavin IV”) came in the final unique packaging of the Kenner/Hasbro The Power Of The Force “2” line, in “starburst” FlashBack and CommTech packaging, not the original red/green card backs. This version of Leia was also part of  “The Princess Leia Collection” but that was different packaging too. Are you familiar with the different original modern toy line looks? Do you perform the appropriate research? It’s probably too late to fix, but you should, at the very least, know the error of your ways.

I know I see more positive reports than negative one when it comes to Hasbro Pulse. Still, JTA reader Jason A.’s recent delivery of The Black Series [Lucasfilm 50th Anniversary] POTF2 (one of their worst exclusives ever) arrived shoved into an ill-fitted box by their shipping department. This has been the norm for me. I’ve literally had better encounters with Walmart’s shipping than Hasbro Pulse. Oh well.

One of the local Walmart stores finally decided to stock their months-long empty shelves. It was quite a sight to behold. As I made my way down the aisle, I wasn’t surprised that the two skinny rows set aside for Star Wars were barer than a newborn baby’s bottom. Even when Walmart restocks, Star Wars is never part of the equation. There were plenty of other Hasbro products too. When you see anecdotal evidence like this, it still makes you wonder who is at fault for the lack of Star Wars products. Sad.

Hasbro Needs To Stop Double-Dipping The POTF2 "Chip"

What in the name of the “Maker” is going on with the Lucasfilm 50th Anniversary figures and paying homage to a terrible blemish in the Star Wars action figure line? It’s a point in toy history that none of us want to remember. Sure, The Power Of The Force “2” line was fun in the late nineties, but the figures and the corresponding packaging are eyesores to the more sophisticated collectors. Whoever thought of this concept needs to be placed in front of a firing squad. And Hasbro, please remember NOT to double-dip when it comes to The Power Of The Force “2” commemorative stuff. Just take a bite and end it.

OK, Hasbro. You need a reality check. The current exclusive program is an unmitigated disaster. And you should be held accountable for its ineffectiveness. Unless you’re dead under a rock somewhere, you must know how pre-orders for online exclusives are COMPLETE calamities, right? This nonsense has to stop. (more….)

Yawn. Boring. Didn’t we just get the Imperial Rocket Trooper? This one comes with less too. Yikes. Is The Black Series 6-inch line already feeling the pinch of expended tooling budgets? Hasbro didn’t even try with this one. (more….)

Wow! Look at that shimmery purple lining! We expected Carnor Jax to be the dud of the four Comics And Books figures, but it ended up being our favorite. Oh, and this IS NOT Carnor Jax. It’s Kir Kanos. Do you think Hasbro will issue a running change? (more….)

Hey, remember when Hawk was released in 2008’s/2009’s The Clone Wars [Blue] line? We don’t either. For one reason or another, this one slipped by Hasbro. The Lucasfilm 50th Anniversary “The Clone Wars” Clone Pilot Hawk is an anachronism of itself, but it’s nice to finally get this character in action figure form after more than a decade. (more….)

It’s becoming increasingly more frustrating to find anything Star Wars-related merchandise at retail. And while we are constantly bombarded by the pompous defenders that retailer exclusives are a necessary evil for the Star Wars toy line, one has to wonder what the point of all this is when literally nothing is found.

Review: Greedo - TBS [L50] - Amazon Exclusive

The Black Series 6″ Lucasfilm 50th Anniversary Greedo isn’t accurate to the on-screen character of Greedo, but it’s not accurate to the vintage Kenner Greedo either! (more….)
