Retro Collection Boba Fett? Is It On The Horizon?

Although priced with an MSRP for a The Vintage Collection figure, Walmart has listed a Retro Collection Boba Fett figure. With the runaway success of the first wave at TARGET and now Entertainment Earth, there’s no doubt the line’s continuing, but will Boba Fett be one of the figures in the next wave? Special thanks to friend Mark for the alert!

Popularity Of Star Wars Toylines

Ever since Hasbro introduced The Black Series in 2013 there has been much debate about the popularity of various Star Wars toylines. Is The Vintage Collection, despite its cancellation, still more popular? Is the revived Vintage Collection popular again? What about 5 POA figures? Or the Retro Collection? And then there is the question where we all are in the toyworld. How do the various Star Wars toylines compare to other things? Marvel Legends? Funko Pops? Or maybe even S.H.Figuarts? Now I have to say one thing here: this article is not about proving anything or to make anyone feel good or bad about what they collect. I merely try to find out how popular things are on Google. And of course there are some caveats. But I will get to that in more detail in the article. I think it might be interesting to see how various things are trending online. There certainly are some intriguing results. So click through for more info!

Not Much Good Will In This Goodwill Auction!

As we reported, the “Father’s Day” exclusives at TARGET have been collected and gathered and sent to Goodwill stores. Now they’re showing up online in auctions. (Is the hobby really this difficult now?) Anyway, JTA reader Greg A. sends us a link where there is an auction of the removed products. Do you notice anything odd? Whoever did this should give up the hobby immediately.

If your TARGET has any leftover Han Solo (Stormtrooper), Luke Skywalker (Death Star Escape), or, yes, the Retro Collection figures, they’re all 50% because they fall under Father’s Day gifts, at least at JTA reader Scott K.’s local TARGET in NY! Unbelievable! He writes: “If any Target stores have leftovers the VC Han Stormtrooper, he is $6.49, the Retro figures are $4.99 and I believe The Black Series Luke Stormtrooper is $9.99.”

    

UPDATE: It looks like this might be universal. My TARGET had only the 6″ Luke Stormtrooper leftover and they all rang up $9.99.

Citing any store report (or even multiple store reports) is anecdotal at best. But if you combine store reports like the two examples shown in the image above with the near-instant sellout of the Walmart exclusive TVC Jabba’s Palace online. Or the impossibility of finding Saelt-Marae in stock online for MSRP. Or the binge-purchasing of the all-new Rogue One Imperial Stormtrooper, you’d have to have your head buried in the sand to not see the excitement and fever for all things 3.75″ super-articulated. I believe the HasLab exclusive Jabba’s Sail Barge was the catalyst to spark this interest. (more….)

JTA reader Gause emailed me earlier tonight with quite a tale. Wanting to secure the Retro Collection figures, when he gave the TARGET employee the DPCI to check status, he was told they are discontinued. Are any of our readers who are employees at TARGET able to confirm or deny this? It seems way too soon for TARGET to discontinue this line. I’ve never seen the line once. Please remember. TARGET only has initial exclusivity for the Retro Collection and this line will be available through fan outlets this fall, so don’t panic. But we’d like to find out if this TARGET claim is true or not. It doesn’t feel plausible this soon.

Hey! If you’re one of the cool collectors totally digging the new Retro Collection, don’t forget that Hasbro produced a phenomenal “Retro-styled” Boba Fett figure as part of the original run of The Vintage Collection. We’re certain Boba Fett is planned officially for the Retro Collection at some point, but why wait when you can get an awesome rocket-firing version right now? Special thanks to JTA Facebook reader Jeff Cole for the beautiful image and the reminder that this figure exists! 🙂 If you want Boba Fett (VCP03), check out the eBay listings for it HERE, if you can afford one that is! You can also see our RDR on this figure HERE as well.

Hey Canada! Do you want the Retro Collection now and don’t have a TARGET near you? Well, we’ve learned that the Retro Collection will be available in Canada from Kaiaboutique.com at the end of May. Special thanks to JTA reader Jean C. for the information!

As we told you, many TARGET locations set aside the new Hasbro Star Wars exclusive items in a special section away from toys for a quasi-Father’s Day type of display. See image below for the proof. As you know, the merchandise sold out almost immediately. There is good news as well as a silver lining. Just after selling out hours on May 12th, Gary H.’s store received a new shipment of Retro Collection figures. Other merchandise is expected soon as well. Keep the faith!
