Welcome Toy Runners! Thanks in advance for reading. As many Hasbro figures as I’ve gotten in the last couple weeks, this week was very dry from them. I got some other toys, and have been working on a new diorama set. Check it out by clicking here…

These are some of my favorite figures this year. I love video game characters and I hope they make more! I just got my scouts and heavy battle droids in the mail a over the weekend and it looks like they still have some stock available so hurry!
Hello Toy Runners! This week I visited a few more toy stores and found a few good fodder figures for cheap at the Tucson Tanque Verde swap meet. Click here for some photos as well as an announcement about the theme of TRT #100.
My birthday and my father’s fall only about a week apart from the other, so, since he is a collector as well, we take an annual trip around the Phoenix area to all the local collector stores. It’s always fun, and there’s always something good to look at! Click here to see some wonderfully filled Star Wars sections.
Hello again Toy Runners! We are nearing 100 issues of TRT which is pretty crazy to me! Should we do a special theme for the 100th issue? I’ve got some new customs to share with you today so please click here to check them out! Then leave your photos of new finds in the comments and/or post them on Instagram!
Well, here’s something you don’t see very often… Toys! In the store! It was a miracle. This particular Walmart in San Tan, AZ must have gotten a Hasbro shipment in as I found a fresh case of repacked TVC figures, repacked GI Joe figures, and brand new Marvel Legends that coincide with several recent shows and even some upcoming ones… Amazing how Hasbro can do that.
All these reveals today kept me busy! I posted this on our Instagram page, but just am getting the chance to write about it now. This last week I completed a custom for a friend of Emperor Palpatine as seen in The Rise of Skywalker. Click through to check it out and please show off your own weekly finds in the comments!
Welcome, readers, to this week’s Toy Run Tuesday. I’ve been creating more work for myself lately by accumulating new parts for customs and not finishing them… But at least that means I have some nice new parts to share with you! I also received an order from Tunghori’s new website. Check it out by clicking here!
Welcome, readers! It’s Toy Run Tuesday again, and I have a few great new toys to share with you today. I hope to see your week’s finds in the comments, too! Please click here to check it out!
Welcome back to another Toy Run Tuesday! I received a new model kit this week. It’s going to be a big project… But I am very much looking forward to the finished result! Take a look at the kit by clicking here! After that, please take the time to leave a comment of your week’s finds, customs, photos, or collections.
Do you like sports? Do you hate sports? Either way you will enjoy this March Madness bracket because it’s all about The Vintage Collection! @swtvc on Instagram is running a bracket this month to see what the most wanted TVC figures are. You can find blank templates at swtvc.net. I’ve already filled out my bracket, and I’ll be posting it in the comments. I’d love to see yours! Be sure to fill them out and vote in @swtvc‘s polls this month and see how you did!
This week was pretty good when it came to collecting! For Toy Run Tuesday I have some new photos I took of my figures. Toy Photography is fun, but harder than it looks. I also actually found a figure in the store. Click here to take a look!
After just hearing about these “pipeline” figures in a recent Hasbro livestream, we’re rather surprised to see prototypes already! They look incredible! Head over to our friends at Banthaskull.com for more pictures! I’m very excited for these releases. IG-11 being all-new is shocking in a really good way. Let us know what you think in the comments!
One of my favorite Disneyland blogs, Endor Express, shared some wonderful photos of the new Galaxy’s Edge trading post in Downtown Disney, Anaheim. Will you be going to the outpost any time soon? What exclusive items would you like to buy the most? Let us know in the comments!
Hello, Toy Runners! I’m happy to be back, and today I have another custom figure to share with you. It’s been pretty slow lately with collecting. No new preorders, and nothing being shipped lately. Unless you’ve gotten the most recent TBS/TVC waves earlier than most collectors, we’re in a bit of a lull. What do you do when you’re not getting new toys? Let us know in the comments!
Hello Toy Runners, it’s Tuesday evening, and a fine time for a TRT. Please click here to post your weekly finds, collections, and customs in the comments!
According to CNBC, “sales of [Hasbro’s] licensed content from entertainment studios fell 12% to $1.08 billion for the full year, [but] its sales of Star Wars grew by 70% over that period.” That’s a pretty hefty percentage for a single year. What on earth, do you suppose, could have possibly contributed to such an increase in sales? That’s rhetorical, by the way. The article without stating it directly basically says “The Mandalorian was really great for business.” Do you expect Hasbro to increase their product due to these sales? How much do you think The Black Series vs The Razorcrest campaign contributed to these numbers? Let us know what you think in the comments!
Hello Toy Runners! We return to our regular weekly programming of Toy Run Tuesday, and today I have a couple photos of a custom figure I’m working on. You’ll get to see some behind the scenes photos of a more in-depth custom. It may be shocking to behold! Or not. Just click here to take a look for yourself.
Hello, Toy Runners! Another Tuesday has passed, so I have several new acquisitions to share with you. I received my Tantive IV playsets, and did a couple custom “fixes” for two Mandalorian TVC figures. Take a look by clicking here!
Hello, fellow Toy Runners! It’s been a roller-coaster week with the Walmart Mandalorian exclusive. Hopefully everyone’s been able to get a successful order in. I got quite a few goodies this week and I’m excited to share them with you, so please click here to read on!
Hello, Toy Runners! We’ve had a couple holidays since our last edition, so I hope you have lots to share! What did you get for Christmas? Do you have any New Years collecting resolutions? Let us know in the comments! I also have a few toys to share from this last week’s toy runs, so click here to check it out!
Some of you may know that I run a custom figure page on Facebook called John Morog Customs. I post a lot of my custom work on Toy Run Tuesdays here, but don’t advertise my page much since I don’t want to lead our readers away from the site. That being said, I wanted to inform JTA readers that I am running a giveaway on Facebook for anyone interested. This year was a tough one for everybody, and I have been very grateful to our readers and staff for the discussions we have that kind of pull us out of this crazy world for a little while. It may be small, but I wanted to do something to give back to the community! Click through for more info.
Sorry, Toy Runners! I had my semester final today and in the business and stressing out about a test I passed, I ended up putting this off till late! But it’s still Tuesday here, so I’ll count it. Anyway, I was able to finish up my Bo Katan I’ve been working on. I also got a small lot of figures in the mail and a gift from a fellow JTA reader and Toy Runner local to me. Take a look!
Say goodbye to having to purchase your cheap loose figures from eBay, because the popular seller of Star Wars toys now has his own website! Tunghori closed shop due to Covid19 for some time. Unfortunately airmail was suspended to several countries, so shipments were taking extra time and he received some negative feedback. I’ve personally purchased several lots from this seller and have received all of them. Now they have created their own website. Take a look as there are some hard to find figures at good prices!
Hello, Toy Runners! Welcome back to another wonderful Tuesday. I have a couple fun things to share with you this week, and I hope to see your week’s finds as well! Were you able to locate the Target exclusive Mando build up pack? What about the new TVC wave? Please let us know in the comments!
