You've Just Crossed Over Into The Hasbro Zone

You’ve always collected Star Wars toys with relative availability at the retail level. But recently, you’ve encountered another dimension of nothingness; nothing to purchase because there’s nothing found. You’re desperately trying to spend your extra income on the latest Star Wars figures. But instead, you’ve just crossed over into The Hasbro Zone. (more….)

An Almost Perfect Run Of Undamaged Walmart Deliveries Dies

I just got back home from Christmas vacation to a plethora of packages from online purchases. I have to admit that I have had GREAT luck with Walmart the past couple of months, but this delivery was a setback. Click the image below to see how a sale TVC Luke Skywalker (Yavin Ceremony) arrived. What’s odd is that I added to my cart as an extra to meet minimum FREE delivery requirements, yet, my main order and this arrived in two separate boxes. That’s penny-wise, pound foolish, friends.

The Vintage Collection Luke Skywalker (Bespin Fatigues) is available to pre-order on Amazon. This figure update will receive Photo Real, and sadly NOT the alternate Kenner card back which we begged Hasbro to do for some of the repacks to help make things interesting!

It is time to become more active and show Hasbro that there is support and love for the 3.75″ line. Let’s no longer wait for Hasbro to announce the product but get involved! Kenner started it all in the 70s with the 3.75″ line, and this is still what most fans want to collect. However, we see a lot of re-issues, but there could be done a lot more to keep capturing the magic of Star Wars and keep collecting alive.

Rogue One is one of the fans’ favorite movies but didn’t see too much love yet in terms of products. General Merrick participated in the Alliance’s acquisition of the Galactic Empire’s plans to their ultimate weapon, the Death Star, in the Battle of Scarif, flying as leader of Blue Squadron in a T-65B X-Wing Starfighter.

The blue squadron is missing in the lineup of Hasbro’s X-Wings. Show your support and sign this petition to have Hasbro produce Merrick and his X-Wing in The Vintage Collection line. Hasbro should produce Merrick in The Vintage Collection packaging, and they should either include him carded with the X-Wing as they did with Jabba’s Palace, or produce both separately boxed and carded.

May the Force be with us.

While it wasn’t a Best Buy exclusive, the AT-ST Raider was initially exclusively available at Best Buy. Apparently there is a distinct difference. Whatever the case, you can now pick up the AT-ST Raider on Amazon.com. Thanks to JTA reader Shawn for the alert!

Well, after the $10 Five Below finds, the $16.99 Kids Warehouse Discount, and now Ollie’s $19.99 special, (as well as multiple unmentioned flash-sales on Amazon), I think it’s safe to say that The Vintage Collection Imperial Combat Assault Tank was a colossal failure. Even if it’s time to discount the vehicle in the line, there shouldn’t be this many units available for these give-away prices. Hey, if we can rip The Black Series [Phase III] First Order Elite TIE Fighter 6″ vehicle a new one, we should be able to do it for a TVC item too. Special thanks to JTA reader Ed. D. for the latest Ollie’s news.

P.S. I do want to be COMPLETELY transparent and state I never saw this vehicle at retail ONCE. So, maybe it’s NOT a great comparison to the 6″ First Order Elite TIE Fighter. At least the latter was found EVERYWHERE before it hit clearance EVERYWHERE.

If you care about variations and you ordered The Vintage Collection Princess Leia Organa (Yavin) figure from Hasbro Pulse, it’s a good bet you were shipped VC164. Also, VC150 is showing up at Walmart now (just found it yesterday).

Although The Vintage Collection Boba Fett periodically shows out of stock at Walmart online, it also frequently shown as available from a third-party seller (for a VERY EXPENSIVE PRICE; usually around $36+). However, if you look for the other buying options, you’ll also see it’s available from Walmart too. If you click Compare Sellers (including Walmart), you then have an option to add Boba Fett to your cart for the $12.93 MSRP! It worked for me and I received mine today. (I wanted to ensure it worked before posting.) I could have ordered a dozen if I wanted to, but only when it shows in stock from a third party seller. Best of luck! As of the time of this post, you can order the figure.

Update: Looks like it’s back in stock again when you click the ‘Compare’ option.

If you’re interested, tunghori has listed the TVC Princess Leia Organa (Yavin) figure loose. If you’re not into the packaging variants but only want the new head sculpt and arms, then this might be your best option. The figure has been a bit difficult to find at retail at the moment. Special thanks to friend and JTA reader Mark for the alert! P.S. tunghori ALSO has listed the Leia Organa (Sandstorm Outfit) figure loose too!

Walmart Exclusive TVC Luke Skywalker (Yavin) Still $6.99!

With all of the crazy Black Friday and Cyber Monday hoopla, it appears many of you missed out or didn’t know about the TVC Luke Skywalker (Yavin) Walmart exclusive figure for $6.99. It’s still that price if you’re interested. Thanks to all who wrote in reminding us that this deal probably didn’t make it out there fully.

Hasbro, you have treated 6″ collectors very well with the four-decade celebration of 1977’s Star Wars: A New Hope. The collection of vintage Kenner-inspired card backs was an interesting take for The Black Series line, but it worked out well because collectors bought them up. Sadly, you provided 3.75″ super-articulated collectors with a paltry line of 3.75″ Titanium figures that were both terrible and a slap in the face. So, can we ask you to do something special for us for 2020, please? (more….)
