Our friends at Fanthatracks have a first look at one of today’s upcoming announcements: Princess Leia Organa (Yavin 4) on a Lucasfilm 50th Anniversary commemorative The Power of the Force green card back. Head over to Fanthatracks for more images.
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.
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….)

Click below for pre-order links to yesterday’s The Black Series reveals. These are all exclusives, so hopefully, they will fare better than the Target exclusives!
We will add links as we find them, so keep refreshing if all links are not yet live.
UPDATE: Well, it seems ShopDisney and Walgreens decided not to go by the official pre-order time, so who knows when they will go live (probably after their sitewide promotions end). Hopefully, Walmart will do like it did with their other TBS exclusives and put them back in stock once the dust settles. We will update this article with links when they are finally added.

So, are you interested in guessing what Hasbro will be revealing for their I Am Your Father’s Day panel on Wednesday? Will they help me get closer to retirement with more The Ninety Six reveals (help us, Maker, you’re our only hope)? Will we see new Bad Batch 6-inch figures? Or will we see more new releases with that awful Lucasfilm 50th logo on them? Or will it be a whole bunch of nothing? Your thoughts in the comments, please!

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….)
The final Target exclusive Visual Guide update from The Black Series commemorating the original The Clone Wars line is Anakin Skywalker. Click below for our full Visual Guide page, and click here for our in-depth review.

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….)
Our next addition to the Visual Guide database is the Target exclusive The Black Series Obi-Wan Kenobi. Click below to check out this Lucasfilm 50th Anniversary figure commemorating the original The Clone Wars line of figures. You can also read our full review of this figure right here.
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. (more….)
The Black Series 6″ collectors are getting it all. Now Hasbro opened up the old Expanded Universe “comic packs” for them for the Lucasfilm 50th Anniversary sub-line. Sigh. Do they even know who these characters are? Let’s look at the shirtless Darth Maul (Sith Apprentice) figure. Rey certainly wouldn’t approve of this figure. (more….)
