Do you want to know what sets the reissue of 2020’s TVC Boba Fett’s Slave I apart from the 2013 TVC Slave I (Boba Fett’s Spaceship) Amazon exclusive? A lot. We have completed a full 76-image gallery for you to peruse, updated the review and Collector Notes which outline all of the difference for you. We also kept the old gallery too. Hasbro did collectors a solid here. Check it out! By the way, we’re treating the re-release of this vehicle no differently than the TVC basic figures than also get reissued, so we’ve updated the original review from 2013 and added details separating the two releases. Leave your thoughts in the review’s comments!

JTA is in the #FightForTVC. Ignore the noise here and elsewhere. It’s important more than ever to now sign the petition, contact Hasbro, Walmart, TARGET, and other online retail and let them know you want to see more TVC. Let the campaign CONTINUE! #FightForTVC. JTA led the campaign for the relaunch of TVC, and it was successful as it came to fruition in 2017. We also organized a successful campaign for Jabba’s Sail Barge (“Bring On The Barge”) years ago. If we all successfully worked together to do that, we certainly can do it again to get the figures we want! Hasbro Pulse Instagram: HERE. Hasbro Pulse Facebook HERE. Hasbro Twitter: HERE.

How Sustainable Is The Black Series?

Yes, this is part of the #fightforTVC campaign, but I pose this as a legitimate question to 6″ Black Series collectors. For over 40 years, 3.75″ action figures have dominated the Star Wars collecting market. Only a few years ago, the 6″ Black Series line entered the scene, and has since grown into a line with many new figures per year and a large collecting group. But how long can it continue? Is collecting 6″ figures sustainable? Let’s explore a few reasons why it may not be…

A couple of days ago, online retailer Dorkside Toys dropped a bombshell of news in Rebelscum’s forums. There has been much debate over whether Hasbro is giving The Vintage Collection the attention it needs and deserves (spoiler: they’re not) and Dorkside Toys relays information that surprises and counters the echo chamber you hear elsewhere.

A New Hope - A Toy Story

On May 4th several Star Wars toy photographers released a rather impressive project: an action figure recreation of A New Hope. It’s a joint effort of nine people, sadly, the project is not quite finished, maybe 90% is done, but even so, there are more than 250 images, using the full range of action figures, TBS, TVC, SHF, Bandai model kits and even Kenner, plus some custom figures and dioramas. The entire portfolio makes for one very ambitious and excellent photo novel. Projects like these show what can be achieved with a clever combination of both 1/12 and 1/18 scale figures, custom dioramas, and off the shelf vehicles. Maybe the photography bug may bite you as well when you see the excellent photos that recreate iconic scenes from the movie. Click through for a couple of highlights!

This isn’t a rumor. This isn’t news. But man oh man, Hasbro seems ever unwavering in their stance that things WILL NOT improve as far as The Vintage Collection is concerned (from collectors’ perspectives). For me, it is disconcerting. (more….)

Hasbro, It's Time For An Answer To #wheresrex?

I don’t know about you, but I can’t take it anymore. Since 2013, Hasbro showed 3.75″ super-articulated collectors a stellar version of a Phase I Captain Rex. Then Attack Of The Clones 3D didn’t happen. Then Legacy Collection “2” was canceled, and Hasbro threw out this baby with the bathwater. For years, JTA and other fansites have asked, begged, and screamed at Hasbro about why they haven’t released this incredible action figure yet. Well, now it’s time. If Hasbro doesn’t release this figure NOW, they are a terrible company. The Clone Wars just ended, and we still don’t have this figure or an announcement of it. NOW IS THE TIME! Remember that ridiculous hashtag in 2015 (#wheresrey)? Let’s get is going again with one letter changed. The Vintage Collection collectors demand to know #wheresrex?

Found! JTA reader Eric S. found the latest wave of The Vintage Collection figures at TARGET. Interestingly, I thought this wave was a Fan Channel outlet-only wave, so I now have concerns that they might clog up shelves if there isn’t enough support to purchase them at the brick and mortar level.
