They misspelled another name! The 6″ The Empire Strikes Back 40th Anniversary Imperial Tie Fighter Pilot is an expected release, although we wonder if it was needed. Do you need another one? (more….)

Hasbro misspelled the name. They designed a new card back and developed a character name that didn’t need to be created. Oh, and the paint operations are terrible. And lastly, the figure is still too small. Find out why The Black Series [The Empire Strikes Back 40] Artoo-detoo (R2-D2) (Dagobah) figure SHOULD have been released as 1982’s ESB ARTOO-DETOO (R2-D2) [Sensorscope] instead if they had to re-release it at all.

It has the wrong name. It has the wrong card art. And it might even have the wrong gun. Despite all of these potential negatives, The Black Series [The Empire Strikes Back 40] Rebel Soldier (Hoth) figure is probably Hasbro’s best 6″ figure to date. (more….)

We launch Research Droids Reviews: Season 12 with The Black Series [The Empire Strikes Back 40] Luke Skywalker (Snowspeeder) figure. Hasbro screwed up the figure’s deco and named it incorrectly, but the figure still has a lot going for it, like new knee joints without pins for example. (more….)

And here is one more reveal from today. Luke Skywalker in his Dagobah training outfit with Yoda! Luke looks appropriately grimy. He also comes with a backpack. But Yoda is still the same old Yoda from before, i.e. he’s much too tall and it may look a bit funny when Luke carries him around on his back. This post will be updated once details about availability are known! Thanks to Oliver H. for sending the picture!

Update: after more scrutiny it appears Yoda was scaled down somewhat from the previous version and is a little shorter now!

JTA reader Jonathan L. was able to purchase The Empire Strikes Back 40th Anniversary 6″ figures at his local TARGET with no issues! They’re out there folks!

Hello JTA,

While doing some early morning shopping for essentials I came across these at a target in western Illinois on an end cap dedicated to the 40th anniversary for empire. All rang up at the self checkout with no issues. Stay safe friends!!

TARGET Reset Next Week! Here Are Some Details!

JTA reader Jason S. stopped by his local TARGET and found The Black Series [The Empire Strikes Back 40th Anniversary] wave 1 but was denied the purchase. The store clerk told them they have a street date of August 1st. If you also find this wave in your local store, please let us know if you are told the same thing about August 1st being the release date. That feels pointless to me.
