Holy cow. Hasbro is giving The Black Series collectors the shaft. So much for the line with higher profit margins. As much as we hoped to adore the ARC Trooper Captain, we quickly learned how lazy Hasbro was once again with a new character added to the 6-inch line. (more….)

Week 4 of Bring Home the Bounty showcases the already sold out Walmart exclusive The Black Series Clone Wars figures. But wait… they were available again! But sold out. Maybe they will go back up? Keep checking! I didn’t see the other two in stock, but General Grievous was available for a short time when I checked. Also revealed is the Clone Wars packaging for this set.

Review: Greedo [POTF2] - TBS [Lucasfilm 50th Anniversary]

Hasbro placed the worst figure from the original The Black Series 6-inch line on the worst Star Wars action figure card art. It’s literally a lose-lose situation with the Lucasfilm 50th Anniversary Greedo figure. Why Hasbro? Why? (more….)

Hasbro Debuts TBS Princess Leia On Green POTF Card Back

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.

Hasbro Needs To Stop Double-Dipping The POTF2 "Chip"

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….)

Pre-Order The Fan Celebration The Black Series Reveals

This post contains affiliate links. At no additional cost to you, JTA may receive a commission if you click and make a purchase.

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.

Notes:

  • The POTF Red exclusives will also be available at Hasbro Pulse
  • Use code SAVEMORE as ShopDisney for tiered savings
  • Use code SUMMER20 to save 20% at Walgreens.com
  • Walmart is now listed out of stock, but they will likely be back and available, so keep checking

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. 

The Black Series

Lucasfilm 50th Anniversary Power of the Force “Red” Inspired (ShopDisney)

  • Han Solo
  • Luke Skywalker
  • Greedo

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….)
