But they could have prevented it. A few additions would have made this a surefire hit, and collectors might not have balked at its price. But wow. That Jabba’s Palace Throne Room playset environment is something else, isn’t it? That said, you know from the comments that its price is staggering, and collectors are saying “no way.” Collectors are being forced into a “direct to market” scenario as it’s a Hasbro Pulse exclusive. And there were so many ample opportunities they could have incorporated to make this The Vintage Collection centerpiece shine above anything else released previously. Well, maybe save for The Khetanna. With just about 15 minutes of talking about this item with my good friend John McCartney, we came up with many ideas to guarantee this release some incredibly enormous success (and enthusiasm).

Tantive IV Corridor - The Vintage Collection

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.

There is going to be a lot of barking and clapping for The Vintage Collection Tantive IV Corridor playset. It could have been a whole lot better. And the pack-in figure enrages us. Hasbro is still playing the scam game of making you buy “one half for the price of one whole.” It should be two for the price of one instead. (A more expanded gallery is coming soon!) (more….)

We’re talking about one for a fair price too! How can Mattel make a Batman vs Superman Ultimate Batcave Playset (FOR 6″ FIGURES NO LESS) for less than $100; something that stands four feet high, mind you, and Hasbro can’t make a 3.75″ scaled Death Star with enough bang for under $250? Yeah, yeah, yeah, licensing fees, whatever. Still, something just doesn’t jive anymore. Special thanks to JTA reader and friend Mark for the dose of reality.

Hasbro Should Keep The Playset Momentum Going

With the relative success and accolades the BB-8 2-In-1 Mega Playset has attained, it would make sense if Hasbro continued a playset type of product with a pack-in figure, wouldn’t it? We hope to see them take advantage of the playset market more consistently and see them keep it in the $129.99 to $149.99 range. It goes without saying that a new Star Wars film is the best time to do that sort of thing.
