I wish Chris Swanski from Bantha Skull would refrain from ordering his personal products during peak The Vintage Collection exclusive ordering times because Walmart can only deal with so much at a time. One of our readers, Aaron P., accidentally received Chris’ shipment of “personal items” instead of The Vintage Collection’s Din Djarin, and Aaron lost out on Din Djarin because of this mixed up shipment. Chris, text me and we’ll figure out how to get these to you. But please don’t order this stuff during another TVC ordering frenzy. Click through for JTA reader Aaron P.’s experience.

There is going to be a lot of barking and clapping for The Vintage Collection Tantive IV Corridor playset. It could have been a whole lot better. And the pack-in figure enrages us. Hasbro is still playing the scam game of making you buy “one half for the price of one whole.” It should be two for the price of one instead. (A more expanded gallery is coming soon!) (more….)

It seems this exclusive Din Djarin saga continues, and this time we get Din Djarin & The Child listed in-stock on a new page. So, if you’ve been scouting out the old page, it still says out of stock. Perhaps this has something to do with the pin, perhaps not. Get it while you can!

UPDATE: As mentioned in our comments, 3 of the 4 Carbonized figures are also still available:

Should We Concede Defeat With Walmart Pre-orders?

Something’s gotta give. This is a mere sampling of the many items from my many orders with Walmart that have been canceled without warning. The Black Series 6″ figures, The Vintage Collection figures, and Walmart exclusives have all gotten canceled. I must have over 30 cancellation emails from Walmart now. The question is whose fault is this? It’s a question we’ve never received an honest answer to from anyone.

Walmart’s systems seem to be in total disarray. For those that got their order canceled, the Din Djarin & The Child is now back up for pre-order! Could this be some strange issue with the VC number running change?

UPDATE #1: This is now going in and out of stock. If you see it in stock, don’t hesitate!
UPDATE #2: If you use your mobile device and go through the app, it still shows in stock and will let you order. The browser version shows out of stock.

UPDATE 1/15: Back up for another chance!

Review: Incinerator Trooper - TVC - VC177 [Walmart Exclusive]

Meh. Some will really like the Incinerator Trooper from The Vintage Collection. But we had higher hopes for it. Maybe it’s because we can’t find this figure anywhere that we cannot fully appreciate or enjoy it? (more….)

Walmart Cancelling Din Djarin and The Child Pre-Orders For Many

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

We’ve received at least a half dozen reports, and seen several reports on social media, that Walmart has been sending out cancelation notices for the TVC exclusive Din Djarin and the Child set. Keep an eye on your inbox and lets us know in the comments if yours was canceled, and when you placed your pre-order. There were several rounds of pre-orders that went up for this exclusive, and all of the emails we received all pre-ordered on the first day.

2020 has come and gone, and that’s good for many reasons, of course. But it’s bad for others. One reason in particular that it’s not good is because of how Hasbro treated The Vintage Collection for The Empire Strikes Back’s 40th Anniversary. (more….)

It's Time To Produce The Vintage Collection Bib Fortuna

Hasbro has claimed that 2021 will be a renewed focus for the Kenner 96. And there is one character is desperate need of an update that is once again relevant in Disney Star Wars, something that makes an action figure for the character extra special. Appearing in a cameo in the Season 2 finale of The Mandalorian, it appears Bib Fortuna is now in control of Jabba’s Palace. I just found out thanks to YouTube! (more….)

Are you tired of proving your worth to Hasbro, 3.75″ collectors? How is it that we literally “kill” it for The Khetanna and then only get two all-new action figures to populate it? And then we all step up to the plate HUGELY once again for the Razor Crest, only to see Hasbro asleep at the wheel. Why aren’t they banging out 3.75″ action figures for us after that major campaign success? They owe it to us to make us new characters from The Mandalorian for The Vintage Collection. And after two years, how is it that we don’t have some core and behind the scenes characters from The Mandalorian yet? (Would you announce Kuiil already?) While Hasbro is obsessively reusing parts from their older 6″ figures, they’re doing next to nothing to utilize older 3.75″ super-articulated figures that could be revitalized to bring us new characters from The Mandalorian. Oh, and yes, we deserve some all-new tooling as well. (more….)

I found an article on Polygon today that is humorous in part. While summarizing the new offerings from Hasbro based on The Mandalorian, they reference The Vintage Collection in a funny way. They describe it as “There’s also a sort of junior version of the Black Series called the Vintage Collection, which brings a greater level of detail and articulation to the traditional 3.75-inch scale, at merely 150% of the cost.” It’s almost as if the writer doesn’t understand the history of Star Wars action figures. Then to confuse things, they go on to describe the Retro Collection. Isn’t that the traditional 3.75″ format? Is this a chicken-or-the-egg scenario? Also of interest, the original title of the article was “Star Wars toys and Mandalorian figures aren’t really for kids anymore” which probably put Hasbro in a panic, and they since changed it to “Star Wars toys keep changing, and leaving kids behind.” We’re not sure why that was changed. Anyhow, The Black Series line exists BECAUSE of the traditional 3.75″ scale and The Vintage Collection. It’s not the other way around. Check out the article for yourself.

Mando Monday: Pre-Order Today's Reveals

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

It’s the last Mando Monday, and you would expect Hasbro to go out with a bang instead of a fizzle. So many missed opportunities for an amazing reveal or two in TBS or TVC. But alas, here’s today’s pre-orders: two role-play items (albeit pretty awesome ones) and one TVC re-release of a re-release…

Look, this isn’t another dig at “sixers.” So don’t take it that way. But will Hasbro ever throw a bone to TVC collectors? It’s pure frustration. The Vintage Collection cannot catch a break. Retail doesn’t care. Collectors are getting numb again. And it’s obvious that Hasbro certainly doesn’t care. (more….)

You have to wonder what happens during the Hasbro Star Wars planning meetings when you see a debacle of a figure like Captain Rex make the cut for a repack. This figure should have never been re-released. Ever. And how long will Hasbro play dumb about that cancelled phase I Captain Rex figure from 2013? It’s egregious at this point. Just release that dang thing already, Hasbro! (more….)

Review: The Mandalorain [Beskar Armor] - TVC - VC181

The Vintage Collection’s The Mandalorian [Beskar Armor] figure is another delightful release in the lineup. It’s not perfect, but you’re probably not going to care. Will you find this figure in a reasonable amount of time? And are you happy about all of these releases based on The Mandalorian? (more….)
