Review: Imperial Gunner - TVC - VC232 [Walmart Exclusive]

Do you remember the scene from “Misery” when Annie Wilkes exclaimed “He didn’t get out of the cockadoodie car!”? That’s about where we are with the Walmart exclusive Imperial Gunner figure from The Vintage Collection. Apparently, Hasbro believes they can pull the wool over longtime TVC collectors’ eyes so they can pass off an old figure from a Disney Star Wars source as an OT character when it’s entirely inaccurate!

Review: Princess Leia Organa - TBS6 [Publishing Program]

The Princess Leia Organa figure in The Black Series [Publishing Program] line is better than you think. . And it comes with more accessories than some “deluxe” figures. (Remember that scam?) (more….)

The Din Djarin (Morak) figure in The Vintage Collection is mostly reused parts, but you shouldn’t let that fool you. It’s an excellent action figure. (more….)

Review: Dark Trooper - TBS6 [P4] - TM28

Hasbro is trying to pass off another 6-inch basic figure as a “deluxe” figure with the Dark Trooper. But it’s a nice action figure! (more….)

The Vintage Collection Bespin Security Guard (Helder Spinoza) is the best figure of 2022, and we say that knowing it has imperfections and is 50% reused parts. And it’s hard to believe we waited 42 years for the FIRST modern counterpart to the classic 1980 The Empire Strikes Back vintage Kenner release. It’s like waiting for a new ABBA record. But it’s finally here, and it’s divine. (more….)

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: Mandalorian Super Commando Captain - TVC - VC246

Here is something else to file under “You can’t make this stuff up.” We are receiving MULTIPLE reports of JTA readers receiving the Walmart exclusive Bespin Security Guard (Heldor Spinoza) in place of the Mandalorian Super Commando Captain from Amazon! Once again, another retailer-exclusive figure shows up at the wrong, uh, retailer. And before you ask if the seller was Amazon, that answer is yes. The supply chain is in complete disarray. Let us know if you received this figure instead, too!
