I wasn’t entirely sure if I was going to post another article like this, because honestly, what else should we expect at this point? But the reports are pouring in that collectors are receiving DESTROYED samples of the Amazon exclusive “Armory” Sith Trooper. Here is an example from JTA reader Garo K. Hopefully, you’ve had a more pleasant experience with this exclusive. As someone who ordered five, I can assure you they arrived without any issue at all. (They also arrived in a box)

What TVC Playsets Would You Like to See From The Mandalorian?

There are 2 playsets that would be incredible additions to The Vintage Collection. One needs to be the Razorcrest, that much is clear, but the second might not be so obvious. I’ve taken some screenshots (not photos from my phone this time, yay!), and drew up a couple ideas for how these playsets could be brought to fruition. Click here to take a look!

Wow. Hasbro DESTROYED the aesthetics of the classic Kenner card back with the Amazon exclusive “Armory Pack” Sith Trooper. They also broke format in the numbering system by giving this figure the designation of VC162A. Thank goodness the figure is awesome! See everything in our Research Droids Reviews today!

Now that we’re a significant amount of weeks out from Triple Force Friday, we’re curious to know what you’re finding at retail now. For me, I am only finding exclusives (and with relative ease). But as far as general marketplace items, like the first couple of waves of The Vintage Collection and The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ lines, I am finding almost nothing. There has been sell-through, but I don’t think any of my local stores have restocked. Let us know what you’re finding in your neck of the woods!

If you’re looking for the latest Walmart exclusives, be sure to check the entertainment section of the store (the area with games, Blu-rays, and televisions). Just today, I found The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ Yoda (Force Spirit) and Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight), the latest wave of the “solid gold” figures, and the TVC Luke Skywalker (Yavin) figure.

Here’s the review! It’s a crying shame where The Vintage Collection is at today. The Special Action Figure Set (Cave Of Evil) isn’t the worst thing Hasbro’s done, but it’s like the manifestation of salt in the wound. See the sixteen-image reenactment of Luke’s Jedi training on Dagobah using the vintage Kenner Dagobah playset in our Photo Gallery! Find out more in our Research Droids Reviews today!

It seems that there may be Walmart stores that don’t know which product is newly released. JTA reader Gold Leader provides us with evidence that the new TVC Tatooine Skiff is 25% off and all of the Galaxy Of Adventures figures are 50% off.

EW.com posted a FANTASTIC article explaining what longtime collectors already know: how pivotal Return Of The Jedi is to the toy line. They describe Return Of The Jedi as “a toy chest in search of a film.” Is there a better description than that? Those of us who backed Jabba’s Sail Barge know the joy of collecting the merchandise from Episode VI. We thought Hasbro realized this, too, but they let it fizzle out to nothing. And there are SO MANY more characters to get to and update. So, Hasbro, instead of using EW to reveal your breaking new toy reveals (that no Star Wars collectors go to visit unless directed there by a fan site), perhaps you should use them as research so you can better the Star Wars toy line. Just a thought.

Hasbro, there is an AWFUL rumor circulating (NOT FROM JTA) that all of the straight repacks you announced this past weekend WILL NOT come with Photo Real deco. We don’t see how that’s possible. You said that all figures released going forward would have Photo Real on them. On the contrary, we’ve also heard they WILL COME with Photo Real deco. At this point, we’re not sure what’s happening with them. But if you don’t include Photo Real deco, it will be one of your most egregious mistakes to date. (more….)

What The Heck Is Up With The Vintage Collection?

After we all saw the dreadful The Vintage Collection reveals only to discover they’re all repacks, I took a few minutes to distill what we all just experienced. When the items went up for pre-order today, I couldn’t help but notice that these new figures are coming in waves releasing in June 2020 and September 2020 (at least that’s what the availability dates showed). SEPTEMBER 2020! This leads me to believe that Hasbro will reveal new figure announcements after The Rise Of Skywalker hits theaters and sandwich them in between the repacks. They have to do this. The line will suffer if they don’t. There are likely quite a few figures of characters that they cannot reveal yet due to the Disney embargo, and I imagine that Hasbro’s desperation to reveal something exclusively to our collector friends in Europe and the like too precedence. If there ARE NOT any new figures other than what was revealed over the weekend through September 2020, you’d have to wonder if the license situation is not in a good state. But, it’s too soon to panic about that. Are you happy with any of the TVC repacks? Do you think it is going to help or hurt the line? Do you think more figures are going to be released in between these?

The Vintage Collection Jabba’s Palace Adventure Playset is showing up in substantial numbers across the country. JTA reader Geoffrey E. eagerly sends in a report about what he found at his local Walmart!! As we’ve told you, this exclusive exceeded everyone’s expectations. But I hope all of the reordering doesn’t turn into clearance fodder. That’s the last thing this set needs to experience. Click through for more.

The Star Wars Show Blows Up The TVC HasLab Jabba's Sail Barge

Did you see The Star Wars Show blow up the HasLab Jabba’s Sail Barge (The Khetanna) to recreate the scene in Return Of The Jedi? Sacrilege! They didn’t have any 6″ figures to blow up instead? Maybe this was a manifestation of what Hasbro is doing to The Vintage Collection line with all of those horrid repacks announced a couple of days ago? They wanted to illustrate what’s to come of the line. Check out the video!

Found! But Denied! TVC Cave Of Evil Special Action Figure Set!

JTA reader Ruben J. found The Vintage Collection Cave Of Evil Special Action Figure Set at his local TARGET shelves. Sadly, he couldn’t take them home because of the November 10th street date. But we do have a HUGE image of it to share with you. Your thoughts in the comments please!

Since Hasbro does not do their due diligence and release the most senseless repacks, we thought we would to help you. If you want to save over $8 on the upcoming  and unnecessary reissued General Lando Calrissian figure, you can get him RIGHT NOW for $4.87 at Walmart’s online store. There is no reason to shell out $13+ for a pre-order when Walmart’s giving it away as we speak.
