Review: Imperial Snowtrooper (Hoth) - TBS6 [TESB40]

Hasbro employees can’t name the “vintage” Kenner 6″ figures correctly to save their lives, but at least the sculpts of the figures are incredible. We fell in love with the Imperial Snowtrooper (Hoth) all over again. Will you? It is part of the 40th Anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back celebratory line. (more….)

Review: Darth Vader - TBS6 [TESB40]

Do you remember the first 6″ Darth Vader figure that looked like Droopy Dog? Well, you can throw that monstrosity away now. Hasbro created a stunning Episode and Episode VI version of Darth Vader in The Black Series [The Empire Strikes Back 40] line, and you’re going to love it. (more….)

JTA reader Craig F. writes in with a TARGET store report. It appears they’re still getting in relatively new Star Wars products, although I have found nothing within 50 miles of my house. Let us know if you’re having some luck out there!

The Black Series [The Empire Strikes Back 40] Han Solo (Carbonite) is artificially getting passed off as a figure. Don’t be fooled. It’s an accessory. That’s all it is! Did you get one before they sold out? (more….)

The Black Series 6″ collectors are likely very happy about now. Hasbro finally re-released an accessory from seven years ago to help them complete their collections. Part of The Empire Strikes Back 40th Anniversary lineup, Han Solo (Carbonite) is repainted and comes with nothing else but a three-part display stand. You can see our full gallery and review early RIGHT HERE.

Hey Hasbro! Stop stealing ideas from The Vintage Collection and using them in The Black Series 6″ line! The Bounty Hunters (40th Anniversary Edition) (4-LOM/Zuckuss) is a 6″ version of a The Vintage Collection product. It’s still cool, though. We have it all for you to see in our 52-image gallery; comparison pictures and all! Check it out! (more….)

There appears to be some production issue on the 40th Anniversary The Empire Strikes Back Artoo-Detoo (R2-D2) (Dagobah) action figure in the ASSORTMENT CASE. While the figure has no issues, we’ve learned that the packaging for units in the case assortments getting filled now all sustained some sort of damage. And they’re all like that and shipping as we speak. And we also understand that Hasbro doesn’t have replacements for them either. So, if you’re expecting a mint-on-card specimen, it may take some time to secure one, or until solid case packs are released in substantial numbers to serve as replacements. We DO NOT KNOW if the solid case pack units are affected by this damage as well. (But that seems to be the easiest remedy if Hasbro chooses this route to fix things.) We’re learning more about this in real-time, so stay tuned for any updates or clarifications to this story. We do know wholesalers are receiving credits for the damaged packaging. You can look all over the web, and this figure is out of stock almost everywhere.

UPDATE: Now Entertainment Earth is sending out emails about this situation!
