Wo! Hold the phone! You can order The Black Series [Phase III] general release Sith Trooper for only $9.99 at Repeme.com! Special thanks to JTA reader Bill T. for the alert! When I visited the page, there were only four left. Then I refreshed, and it showed seven left. It must be a marketing ploy, but I was successfully able to order two! Time will tell if this is a mistake or an incorrectly listed product. But I took the chance and ordered it.

"First Edition" Black Series Sith Trooper Leaked!

While browsing my local German Amazon shop today I stumbled upon a yet unannounced variant of the Sith Trooper figure: a so-called “First Edition” Sith Trooper that comes in an all white box and red background! I immediately tried to find the figure on Amazon US, but had no luck, so it seems that maybe Amazon Germany revealed something that they were not supposed to reveal yet.
But what is this? You can already pre-order the figure on Amazon.de, however availability is October 4th, which is Triple Force Friday! Is it possible that there will be more “First Editions” of other Triple Force Friday figures? Will Hasbro make box variants now? Are box variants or “First Editions” anything that interest you? As usual, we know nothing specific, I suppose Hasbro will eventually announce something. Until then we can speculate that the Black Series will see “Special Editions” or “First Editions” box variants. Actually, this “First Edition” box design with the circular callout was also something we saw in the leaked box photos of the Second Sister, which said “graphite”. Is it possible that “graphite” refers to the box here and is a special edition of sorts? Will you chase these box variants?

"Hasta La Vista!" To The Vintage Collection!

OK, perhaps “Hasta la vista!” is a BIT of an exaggeration, but what’s going on at retail when it comes to The Vintage Collection? TARGET has nothing beyond wave 1. And every Walmart near me has flat out removed it from the microscopic Star Wars section it maintains, which currently just has cheap roleplay lightsabers and Solo-era TBS6 figures.  Clearly, The Black Series 6″ is faring no better. Yes, we’re gearing up for Triple Force Friday, so we’re likely in a transitional stage, but how can collectors vote with their wallets if there is nothing out there to purchase and support? Goodness, gracious me.

Hasbro Keeps Refining The Black Series

OK, let’s play a game. This is fantasy, not a subliminal message of what’s coming. Many collectors were ecstatic over the possibility of a 6″ scaled Rancor when they saw it in Hasbro’s diorama during SDCC? People disagree with me, but I could have sworn the Rancor featured was a styrofoam maquette. Others claim it was an articulated “prototype.” I still think it was made out of styrofoam. Anyway, let’s say that Hasbro felt they wanted to make a 6″ Rancor, but they also felt it wouldn’t make sense as a general or exclusive retail released item. Let’s pretend that Hasbro decided to offer it through HasLab. To be fair, let’s use the same target of 8K backers (since Jabba’s Sail Barge reached that amount). What would you be willing to pay to back this thing via HasLab? Something tells me if it was HasLab item, it would be hundreds of dollars, not less. Regardless, if you’re a 6″ collector, what would deem the most to back this item via HasLab?

The Fwoosh has just posted an article that is quite an exciting development of sorts. The author of the article noticed that there are MANY various head sculpts/portraits “hidden” throughout the rocks of the SDCC display. Are these future TBS6 figures? Is it a way of paying homage across the Star Wars saga? Is it nothing at all like the Heart song? You decide and let us know what you think in the comments!! Special thanks to Michael H. for alerting us to this news.

No matter your level of understanding and acceptance about what Hasbro could and couldn’t show at the SDCC presentation, there was no way anyone could argue how disappointing it is. Most of us are knee-jerk complainers, and that’s something that probably won’t change until we’re dead. JTA reader Michael H. also was angry but decided to engage a Hasbro employee about the state of collecting and why they showed so little. This is all from JTA reader Michael’s perspective. We have no way to corroborate what was said, but we think it’s a fair overview of what transpired. Click through for more.

Do You Miss Him Yet? We Do!

I’ll just leave this right here. It seems fitting after today’s 2019 SDCC Hasbro presentation which may go down in history as the most-disappointing ever. Special thanks to Thomas for the graphics work.

This eBay Lot Of TBS6 Figures Going For 63% Of MSRP

There is an eBay auction that’s about to close within 2 hours from this post. The seller has 50 TBS6 figures which have hung around the 63% of retail value for a while now. This is only a fraction of what they’d cost if you purchased them individually. While this auction can change on a dime and experience several conclusions, we’ve witnessed auction lots of TVC figures go for about 200% of the normal MSRP of those figures. There must be an imbalance of TBS6 and TVC figures on the aftermarket. Or maybe there is a difference in the interest of the lines.
