We have some great news to report. All of you who had your Walmart online orders canceled for the TVC Jabba’s Palace (Adventure Set) will have new hope. Although completely sold out with no plans for a restock, we’ve learned from some reliable sources that Walmart’s plans have changed for the better and they WILL replenish online stock. Also, Walmart is working very hard to remedy their ordering and stock logistics to make everything a smoother experience for collectors. At the moment, we don’t have an exact ETA on when that happens, but we expect it to run closer to when these units hit brick and mortar, which right now is “Fall.” If we receive more specific information, we’ll post an update. This release was Walmart’s fastest selling exclusive ever, and they’re excited what interest products from The Vintage Collection brings. More great things to come!
As you know, the Walmart exclusive TVC Jabba’s Palace (Adventure Playset) is arriving to homes all across America. And many of you have noticed that the items are well-packed with air pillows and properly-sized boxes. That isn’t a coincidence. Walmart is aware of the shipping issues and has begun taking steps to rectify this. Mine arrived perfectly, and the image below, courtesy off JTA reader and friend Russ T., show proof that his merchandise came unharmed and in beautiful condition. Let us know how your shipping experiences are.
The Walmart exclusive TVC Jabba’s Palace (Adventure Set) is the hybrid of many perfect things. It’s why it’s selling out the moment it goes back in stock. And it’s why we are still talking about it after so many posts. But today I noticed something that concerns me. (more….)
They’re here! Heather O’Rourke couldn’t have said it better. JTA reader and friend Danny R. was so eager to send in his report to let everyone know he picked up his Jabba’s Palace (Adventure Set) and he’s thrilled with it (so far)!. Let us know about your arrivals and what you think about this incredible retailer exclusive too!
In case you’re not aware from reading this detail in our review yet, the carded figures in Jabba’s Palace Adventure Playset don’t arrive in perfect condition. Ree-Yees is in better shape than Han Solo (Carbonite) because it lays against the side of the box. But Han Solo (Carbonite) has less support. This is an issue because of the way Hasbro packaged the, essentially floating around inside of the box without much support. This isn’t a Walmart issue. You can see how they’re packaged by clicking HERE. I am sure that time outside of the box laying flatly will help return the cared figures to their original shape, but please note that they may not arrive in ideal form.
For many, The Vintage Collection Jabba’s Palace (Adventure Set) is quickly on its way to homes across America.

Many of you have noticed your cards have been authorized for the Walmart exclusive The Vintage Collection Jabba’s Palace (Adventure Playset). We’ve got great news! We’ve learned that stock has finally arrived in the warehouse (which is why there was a little splurge of available units this morning) and that the “ship to customer” date is TOMORROW! So, these should begin shipping TOMORROW! Aren’t you excited? We also can confirm that, while you may see periodic online availability, that our original report is 100% accurate. This item is sold out online and will be available next in quantity at the retail level in the Fall.

Question. Actually, two questions. Question #1: Should The Vintage Collection Ree-Yees (VC137) and Han Solo (Carbonite) (VC136) from Jabba’s Palace (Adventure Set) receive VC numbers part of the regular lineup, or should they instead receive a number more similar to the one given to Yak Face from Jabba’s Sail Barge (The Khetanna) (VC000)? Do you find it bothersome in any way that figures part of the basic figure numbering system are exclusive to playset? I suppose the same would apply to retailer exclusives like Lando Calrissian (Skiff Guard) (VC144) and Han Solo (Stormtrooper) (VC143) as well.
Question #2: Should Han Solo (Carbonite) (VC136) have been part of this set? Shouldn’t Hasbro have added the redone magnetic carbonite block as an accessory here and instead included another Jabba’s palace alien? The reason I bring this up is that Han Solo is based on his appearance from The Empire Strikes Back and not Return Of The Jedi. Oh, and if you think neither of these questions is important, please skip over this post. Thanks.
Hurry! Pre-order The Vintage Collection Jabba’s Palace Adventure Set with exclusive carded Han Solo (In Carbonite) and Ree-Yees!
